You know, I know that movie but I’ve never watched it. I’ll do for sure during these holidays!
You’ll love it. It is an incredibly modern movie, it has a strongly powerful visual impact. I get the chills every time I watch it.
I know that some people could argue, but… I suggest to go for the Moroder version of 1984. It lacks some parts and it has different color casts which change throughout the movie… sepia, pink, blue… And obviously it has an '80s soundtrack. It is quite short (60 minutes long AFAIR).
I think it’s a good way to get familiar with it. Then, if you like it, you can always go for the (near)full restored version, but it is quite long and if you’re not used to watch silent movies could be quite boring.
Then let us know in the thread about movies!
It’s great, worth the fuss. Make sure to watch the newer remastered version with restored footage from Argentina that was thought to be lost forever.
Still need to see that one. My version still has the intertitles describing the missing scenes.
The visuals are amazing in any version. There would be no Blade Runner, Akira or Fifth Element without it probably (and the Robot Woman´s design was the blueprint for C3PO).
The UK’s Christmas Number One 2018!
What the… I must’ve missed this!
I had no idea about it either, until I heard it on the radio yesterday!
I guess most brits will know this tune (and probably are tired of it) so here´s two cool “metal covers”*.
*As in covers by metal bands but they stick fairly close to the mood of the original.
Just watch the first minute…
It’s the case 1-4 (game 1, case 4), it’s famous because the murder is placed in the Christmas eve.
(that’s me pointing at all your friends on the forum)
Merry Christmas to all you lovely people!
This is my Christmas song of the day.
Nooooo! This has been a major for me ever since we had a temp guy called Nigel join our team at work last year, and my manager kept talking about making plans for him! Damn you Black Mirror!
That reminds me of the Bill Hicks number about the Judas Priest double suicide trial where he includes a ficticious dialogue within the band obviously not knowing any names of the guys in Judas Priest saying “I got an idea, Ian*, Nigel let´s kill the fucking audience!”
These seemingly were his “go-to english male first names” so I guess they´re pretty common.
*Sorry, forgot there actually IS an Ian in Judas Priest, which was just luck I guess but there never was a Nigel!
Today is January the 8th. In Italy, since the year 2008, it’s the “ASCANIO DAY”.
Let me explain.
There is an iranian (yes, from Iran) song whose lyrics sound like italian words, put there almost randomly, in a funny way.
The original song is “Pariyah - Shahram Shabpareh”
The refrain lyrics, italianized, is:
Hey, lascia entrare Ascanio, dall’8 di Gennaio,
Perciò, limarla è tosta: esce, ma non mi rosica!
[Hey, let Ascanio come in, from the 8th of January,
therefore, to iron out her is though: she comes out, but doesn’t suck!]
If there are any iranian users, please write down the original lyrics, because if you search for “Pariyah Shahram Shabpareh lyrics” you find only the italianized text!!! (at least in Italy)
Edit: found it! Lyrics in iranian, translation in english and in italian (real, not fake!)
