Geist's official movie/tv recommendation thread

All the news from the peanut gallery and where all the nasty trash talk fails miserably.
It can get NSFW-ish here: you have been warned!

If you're a Sci-Fi and special effects nerd this is a really good movie. A lot slower pace than say a Star Wars type movie but part one is staying pretty close to the book. I look forward to part 2.

On a side note I haven't been to a movie theater in almost 18 months and I can say the popcorn still sucks and the people behind the counter are still idiots.
I got the booster today for Moderna. If I feel alright I'll probably go to the biggest IMAX I've found for the matinee Sunday.

P.S. I noticed when I saw the newest Bond movie that the theaters are also being affected by the supply problems. They were out of some stuff.

I'm in. I consider "Dune" the novel as not only the best sci-fi book of all time, but one of the best of any genre. I for one thought the 1984 version was pretty damn good, considering the special effects available for the time and the impossibility of crunching that book's material down to a 2 hr whatever minute full length feature.
The Foundation trilogy is 10X better.
Different kinds of books. I kind of felt Herbert was more into world building, almost fantasy. Azimov's books are always kinda science-y.

I liked both.

But one obscure Scifi book I loved was called "Armor." The guy never wrote another. I read Heinlein's Starship Troopers around the same time, and Armor blew it away, made Troopers look juvenile.

I'm just saying David Lynch had the "balls" to try to film the novel less than 20 years after it came out. Impossible in one full length 2:30 movie. I was most impressed with the casting. Throw out the other characters, but the dude from "Das Boot" Was Duke Leto, Paul with the hair and angular face Was Mau Dib and the actress playing Lady Jessica Was a super hot Milf 20 years before that was a thing.

The Platform on Netflix is almost too gross to watch but you can't shut it off. Still trying to decide how I feel about it.

One of the weirder ones I've seen in a while. I wish I took the English dub off and put subtitles on so I didn't have to look at the table and food as much. Shit was gross.

Consider the source. RD for years has talked about "sucking cocks" and "draining balls". I think you see where the infatuation starts.

I've tried watching Rocky Horror a few times, I can't get through it. I don't get all the hub bub
Tim Curry is why. That's it. His attitude, androgeny, singing, plus Brad and Janet are fucking retarded :lol: it took the BF several years before he finally got it. Smoking lots of pot helps too.
It's a cult classic.
Audience participation in theaters back in the day was hilarious! :lol:

It still happens at a local theater near me. Knowing all of the fun stuff like that makes it fun watching at home too.
I saw it at a drive-in about 10 years ago and people were doing it from their cars! They even threw rice and toast out their windows!

Lol I knew you'd post that. He sits down and does normal human things because that's what his creator taught him to do. But he doesn't HAVE to eat. Like to survive. He's a monster. He doesn't poop. But, if you must believe that he shits, I guess to wipe he would just drag himself on the bathroom rug like a soiled dog.
Sounds legit.

And scary as hell in the first "It"

P.S. Saw Dune in IMAX. Yeah, it was worth it.
