This is kinda cool, but the foley process makes an environment to lively which means it's inauthentic.
subtitles are embedded in those clips but i'm not sure how you'd activate them in the browser player

AKA With Joy and Merriness (in 720p)

I can't get the subtitles to upload no matter what format I try (7z, rar, zip, txt) so here they are: http://www61.zippyshare.com/v/NC5YEw1E/file.html
forgot to put a description, as apparently thts what you do around here

Robert Cop has discovered a Drug factory. He proceeds to arrest everyone peaceably, but they refuse, so he murdificates them with extreme predijuce.

seriously though i found a behind the scenes thingy on this scene thats pretty cool. may post it here. something else i learned from behind the scenes robert cop stuff isthat Robert's gun was custom made by beretta (peter couldnt remember specifically) and it was a big deal to get the gun into the country. i imagine because it being a machine pistol.

also peter weller tried doing a method acting thing, going so far as to hand out letters to the crew stating that you have to refer to him as whatever his character's name was at the time (Murphy or Robo) but Verhoven didnt give a shit, nor did his friend, who would fuck with him about it.

ill just post the videos cuz theyre cool.

hm, interesting


>  The main weapon used by RoboCop (Peter Weller) is the "Auto 9". This is a Beretta 93R machine pistol which was heavily modified for the film, featuring a longer barrel with an enormous compensator/flash hider shaped like a casket, plastic grips, and a taller rear sight to match the raised front sight. Typically, RoboCop fires this weapon in 3-round burst mode. The fictional stats of the weapon claim it has an implausibly huge 50-round magazine.

Mark Rappaport - The Vanity Tables of Douglas Sirk (2015)

>  A video essay exploring the frequency and meaning of that particular prop in a wide variety of Sirk movies. Is it a device that traps and keeps women in an artificial world with a limited point of view? Or is it a gateway to the past and the future, and a distorted but nevertheless real vision of the roles that woman are forced to play in society? It's an exploration of the texts and subtexts of commercial films and the subterranean and complicated ways that they affect us and can be read.

Takashi Ito - Spacy (1981)

> Outstanding experimental animated short. First a few words explaining this film's technique. Ito took a series of still photographs in a gymnasium setting up his camera incrementally in a circle. He then took photos of those photos mounted on stands in the same gymnasium (again in a circle) He then photographed these onto film in stop motion. The striking (and somewhat unnerving) effect is that you are flying into an infinite array of photos within photos. When I saw this as part of a program of avant garde Japanese film, one viewer brought their toddler, who immediately began to wail uncontrollably at the vertiginous display. If you ever get a chance to view this, please do, but don't sit too close to the screen or you may get motion sickness!
I think the site does a scan of files before uploading, and sometimes that step halts the upload without notice. I don't know why.

Guessing it's a timeout. We'll see.

Here's what I tried to upload. But after thinking about it, there's no reason to post huge files to the server aside from proving that it can be done. Mega works fine.


Forugh Farrokhzad - Khaneh siah ast AKA The House Is Black (1963)

< It was the only movie made by Forough Farrokhzad.

< A documentary of 20 minutes length; actually it is a documentary only at the first level of meaning: the disturbing images from a leper colony are meditated in verses that partner what's flowing on the screen. Fragments from Psalms, from Koran, from her own poetry. And her stanzas, sometimes in sync with the images, some times in counterpoint, always challenging the versets from the sacred books. One of the greatest poets of the twentieth century, that's what I believe Forough Farrokhzad is.

< This movie is a cinematic poem: empathy for the extreme suffering, desolation that we cannot escape from our condition, and, in the same time, awe in face of the beauty of creation.
pretty much, the only real reason to do so would be if it's something that could be watched in browser but even then why would you when you could have a better and simple way to watch.
