It's marketed as a horror film but plays out more like a witch-trial era fairy tale. But even that doesn't really prepare you for it. It's almost indescribable. The dialogue is entirely in olde English which I can see putting a lot of people off but I definitely recommend it. Just approach it with an open mind, and perhaps an appropriate dictionary.

Yeah, I really enjoyed the Witch, still haven't rewatched it since seeing it in theaters, I've been looking forward to revisiting it. Rocky Horror Picture Show is fun for what it is. Maybe it feels blah to audiences now that so much of what its celebrating has become more accepted for people in their teens to 30's. All the counter-culture aspects of it doesn't feel so rebellious in 2016.

I didn't think it was tough to understand really. Loved the guy who played the dad (what a voice!). It is definitely not your average horror film, and skirts art-house a bit ... almost reminiscent of parts of Anti-Christ (the most fucked up movie ever made, btw).

Anyway, I loved it. The ending is what has been problematic for some people from what I've heard. I was fine with it though. The whole movie was good, several parts were downright horrifying. Good stuff.

I thought it was great but did have a tough time with dialogue. I would rewatch with closed captions.

I thought Antichrist was terrible btw.

Few things I've seen:

1. The Love Witch (2016)- Great to watch a star like Samantha Robinson being born. The sheer embodiment of carnal treachery, perfectly sculptured cheekbones and all. If you like 70's grindhouse or Elvira Presents films, this pastiche with intelligence is for you.

2. Arrival (2016)- Denis Villeneuve is, quite simply, working on a different level than most filmmakers right now. The perfect match of human fiction with sci-fi brain melt. People are calling this the closest we have to Tarkovsky-esque sci-fi and I tend to agree.

3. The Edge of Seventeen (2016)- Equal parts formulaic and refreshing, held together by a tremendous Hailee Stendfield performance. As if we already didn't know she'd be great after "True Grit".

4. Elle (2016)- A woman (Isabelle Huppert) whose more comfortable buying pepper spray and sharp objects than groceries. A perverse, complex delight from Dutch auteur Paul Verhoeven.

5. Los Punks: We Are All We Have (2015)- Documentary about the grassroots underground latino punk scene in Los Angeles. Could have been great, but it gets stuck in boring profiles and brain-fried people sloshing about.

6. Black Rose Mansion (1969)- The always interesting Kinji Fukusaku attempts film noir with a cabaret singer who seems to attract and destroy every man she meets. Psychedelic 60's Japanese stuff. Way cool.

7. Doctor Strange (2016)- Walked out halfway through. I just can't take these CGI superhero films anymore.

8. The Cut (2014)- Turkish filmmaker Fatih Akin's ode to Elia Kazan with a sprawling exploration of one man's survival from the Armenian genocide and his propulsive search for his missing twin daughters. Sad, humane and infuriating.

9. No Blade of Grass (1970)- Surprisingly brutal Cornel Wilde apocalypse film that doesn't shy away from the rape of a young girl, the main character murdering when needed and a pretty hopeless trek across a collapsing society. Not on DVD but can be found on the world wide web if you look hard enough.

10. Salute (1929)- Working my way through all of John Ford's films and this one, so far, is the worst. The worst, Jerry! The Worst!

just watched akira in an indie cinema here.

i bought a region 1 dvd import of this movie for 25, back when anime was something you couldn't get in the uk. in fact the guy who ran the comic book store that had it asked me if i was sure i wanted to buy it because of the region issue. i could only play it 3 times on my computer because after changing region 3 times it would lock. i did not regret buying it for one moment. i think this must have been around 2001 or 2002. this was the dubbed version (and it's a decent dub).

i watched the subbed version last night in a small cinema with the volume level almost loud enough to hurt. it was spectacular. even the uncomfortable chairs and giggling hipsters in the audience couldn't ruin it.

Akira is just amazing. Perhaps the best anime movie of all time. Like the Apocalypse Now of anime. Maybe Princess Mononoke is up there with it. But yeah, I'd kill to see it on a big screen.

Oh man I really want to see this. My father seemed a bit unimpressed. He was looking forward to it I guess, but said it was "slow and ponderous." Though my father and I don't really talk (those were two of the five words from his monthly email) so I don't know what the fuck that even meant.

It was pretty decent. I didn't find it ground shaking, but it was definitely OK. 8/10 maybe?
