    I think they said the movie itself was the next iteration of Roland, or what happens when you decide to continue to read after King tells you to stop.

    Still doesn't keep it from being stupid, especially if its the next iteration, starting at book 3, minus Detta and others.

    Yeah, they said that, altough it doesn't make too much sense, because I don't see Roland suddenly changing skin colour in the next iteration, and I don't see Cuthbert's horn with him anywhere.

    IMO, the skin color thing I believe is another example of King selling out movie rights without giving a shit about quality. Also, it is no surprise Roland is black for no other reason than, lets take advantage of the current racial discussion in America.

    Have any of you seen the movie 'Wild Zero', I watched it the other night and that shit was bonkers (in a good way). It was honestly a spiritual experience for me.

    Just saw someone trying to paint the Clockwork orange as a misogynist movie by basically framing it as supposedly a celebration of violence because it conflates "Protagonist" with "Hero" in what either has to be just absolute stupidity or willful intelectual dishonesty. At one point the person even complained about not feeling "represented" on a dystopian movie about horrible poeple... Apparently representation triumphs any other theme an author wants to communicate.

    Man, this simplified version of Leftist morals is so tiring...

    Looks like we need a Special Short Bus Edition of Clockwork Orange with trigger warnings before every rape scene.

    The Handmaiden, very nice movie, I don't like giving numerical scores, but it was very good

    Pretty Village, Pretty Flame, quite intense, with surrealistic elements, and so far it keeps me biased about Serb cinema (you people are too intense!)

    The Wold of Wall Street, fuck fuckity fuck fuck fuck pretty fucking much fucking sums it up, it was fucking okay, don't wanna say "fucking good" cus it fucking sounds too fucking much, and while it fucking was okay it fuck - okay, you get the fucking point

    Surrealistic elements? What are you referring to exactly?
    Serbian cinema is...well, yeah, I guess it is intense. Emotionally intense in general. When it rains it pours, when it shines it burns.
    But there are a shitton of great films. Mostly comedies and dramas (often dictated by low budget) but with usually good script and acting. Can recommend a few amazing films.

    Well, right from the beginning, with Tito cutting his thumb into a fountain of blood :D
    Also just some of the cinematography make certain scenes feel a bit further away from realistic, which I assume is intentional, some much more than others

    I liked it though, and it felt genuine. One of my problems with Norwegian cinema is that it has always tried to "match up" with Hollywood, in vision and feel. A handful don't, of course, and those will typically stand out (among my favorites here are Svidd Neger (Burned Negro) and Mongoland). But a lot is rather unimpressive...

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that scene. Been ages since I've watched it.
    But yeah, you are right, there are scenes that feel a bit surreal. Definitely intentional.

    I understand what you mean. Unfortunately, such trend has taken root here too (as in many other countries I assume). Unique touch is getting lost and that's sad. It's a very complex problem.
    I've heard about Svidd Neger. I guess I will bump it higher on my list. Dunno about the other one.

    Remember when Birdman made a joke about every good actor now just being swalled up by the Superhero genre?

    And then Robert Downey Junior responded by making fun of the fact that he is Bilingüal?
