Okay, this is pointless now, since the Swedish Pirates already have this.

BUT, the downside of this box set are missing tracks and terrible mixing. It's almost like the bass is consciously trying to DESTROY your eardrums.

I thought we could have a thread for all the films, that came out this year, recent films and stuff. A thread for them, if they recently came out or coming out.

I'll start this thread, with some of the most promising films of the year, Paul Thomas Anderson's The Master.

It just looks.... incredible. The acting, Phoenix does crazy brillantly, and the back and forth between Hoffman and Phoenix is incredible. And just the cinematography, those brillant, subtle shots.

Guys, I have a question that erodes my mind and haunts my dreams.

Star Wars. The wars that happen in a star.

After so much retardation, after several attempts by it's creator to whore out his creation, after so many cheap stuff being made in its once hallowed name... is Star Wars still cool? Does the good still outweight the bad?

Okay. What I always thought was this...

Obi-Wan and Anakin, two orphans from different planets, grew up together, possibly within the Jedi Academy. Being a brash asshole, Anakin left to become hot shot pilot...only to become a captain of a spice frigate (like Owen said). However, The Clone Wars break out (not clones of Jango Fett god dammit) and the Republic enlists the Jedi to fight for them, Obi-Wan becoming General Kenobi. Obi-Wan is assigned to smuggle the Queen of Alderaan off planet for her protection as assassins are taking out key members of congress (Palpatine, of course). They leave Alderaan on...a Spice Frigate, captained by Anakin Skywalker and his mottley crew of Owen Lars and others (possibly a child Han Solo). Anakin falls for the beautiful queen but she has eyes for the more noble Obi-Wan. Adventures ensue, Anakin resumes using the force, fighting in the wars (like a Han Solo analogue) and being sent on missions by Palpatine, using him as a father figure. He reveals he has been using darkside powers to Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan implores him to turn back before he falls to temptation and does something he'll regret. The two begin butting heads. Eventually the Queen reveals she is pregnant with the child of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Anakin, betrayed, goes after Obi-Wan and the Queen. Shortly after giving birth (to TWINS), he kills her in a fit of blind rage. Obi-Wan goes to engage him in the Imperial shipyard on non-descript volcanic planet. Obi-Wan, emotionally wrought, asks why his 'brother' would do this? He replies that Anakin Skywalker is dead, the man he faces is Darth Vader, apprentice to Lord Palpatine, the man who created the 'Clone Wars'. After a fierce battle, Anakin is defeated and falls to his 'death'. Obi-Wan goes to Alderaan to collect his children. He chooses for Leia to stay with her grandparents on Alderaan, and he takes Luke to Owen Lars on Tatooine, keeping him away from him knowing that he is on Palpatines shit list, along with any other Jedi.

Making Obi-Wan Luke's father gives a whole new level of emotion to scenes in the original trilogy, especially Vader's speech about being Luke's 'father', giving him a muc

I don't know. I think it'd be good if Star Wars went sort of dormant for a few years until George gets frozen in carbonite.

Obi-Wan being Luke and Leia's dad is dumber then anything in the prequels. Robs Vader of his tragic villainy. Would he even give a shit about saving Luke from the Emperor if he was the son of Obi Wan and that cheating bitch?

Chillwave has become something of a joke within the indie music community, but as a child of the 80s and a fan of all the music that inspired the movement, I've never found it a laughing matter. There were the early stars like Washed Out and Neon Indian and there were the surprising finds hiding in the basements, bedrooms, and bandcamps that I knew the world needed to know about.

So I put together this compilation of my favorite songs and artists from the scene. Some of this you've definitely heard, but some of this has had very little recognition, such as the groups Soft Lightning and Casa Del Mirto.

I also am self-indulgent, pretentious, love concept albums and alternate histories, so I've taken the compilation and come up with this fun little story to go with it

I've committed myself to a huge endeavor, and i've been sharing it on my blog. Long story short, I'm a huge Frank Zappa fan, and I want others to be too.

But his discography is MASSIVE. 70+ albums. What i've decided to do is to compile a 4 disc compilation called Essential Zappa, which is, duh, all the essential tracks to introduce you to the most imaginative composer of rock music in the 20th century. I wanted to share it with you guys.

Thanks, I appreciate the compliments. I'm glad you liked the Ween one. It means a lot, I think, now, to introduce new people to them now that they've split up.

And to your other comment, I haven't put a lot of live stuff on the mixes, because as amazing as Zappa was live, I don't think that material is *best* for introducing people to him. Obviously, there are exceptions, but personally I don't check out bands' live albums until i'm REALLY into them. Obviously on Phaze Two that's not a hard and fast rule because there's stuff from Roxy and Elsewhere and others.

For you lucky people who got to attend a pre-screening...

I thought the guy who voiced Fozzie sounded a little bit...off. I could be a bit of a Muppet puritan, though. Also, I loved the shout-outs to the previous films.

I never got the chance to see this in the theater, but I finally watched it today. It was wonderful, but at the same time kind of strange, because you do get the feeling that the writers don't have much affection for any of the films or specials past Muppets Take Manhattan. I know it's been a mixed bag since then, but that doesn't make the premise of everyone having forgotten the Muppets and Kermit being so out of the loop that Jimmy Carter and Bob Hope are at the top of his contacts any easier to buy.

I guess I understand why they would focus on the... continuity established by The Muppet Show and the original films? I'm not sure if that's the word I'm looking for, but whatever. It feels kind of alienating in a way.

>Would it have been so much to ask for Gonzo and Rizzo to bro it up a little, at least?

Yes, because all Rizzo managed was basically a cameo.

Also, their lack of affection for A Muppet Family Christmas is disconcerting, as it's one of the greatest Muppet things ever.

I still can't get over how screwed Wonderfalls was. Very little advertising in spite of critical praise, an inexplicably delayed premiere because the execs thought it'd look like a Joan of Arcadia ripoff, aired against Joan, moved from Fridays to Thursdays with no promotion, and cancelled after just four episodes were aired out of order. Nice.

I just watched Dark City last night. A couple of weeks ago I watched Gattaca. I watched both of them because I heard good stuff about them and mostly because Netflix suggested them to me based on what I like. And I suddenly remembered watching these on TV in my early teens. I never really thought about them that much, they aired on a channel that often showed foreign indie movies. La Cinquieme/France 5/Arte whatever the channel is called now. I often caught a movie already started and watch until the end but I never tried to find a title.

As I watched Dark City I couldn't remember the story but I remembered the ambiance and some little details and realized that these movies contributed to shape my current taste in movies.
