General Movie Thread

I aint heard anybody talk about the book nook in over a decade. Rad.

They've stopped buying VHSes...they still sell them, but their stock isn't what it used to be. I could easily find a good five-seven movies worth buying every I went there. When I found out they would no longer be buying VHSes, I went there and bled them dry.

That was one of the few places in Atlanta I could rely on for having a great VHS selection.

The Raid is amazing, really recommend it. A sequel is on the way.

Just watched 'Elite Squad' ('Tropa de elite') again- also very good. It's about the Brazilian paramilitaries that police Rio's favelas. Slightly punisher-like.

Finally got around to watching these last night after having bought them a few months ago...I really love blaxploitation films.

Have any of you seen the documentary G-DOG? It's about an amazing man, Father Greg Boyle, who helps men and women get out of gangs and turn their lives around. He runs an organization in L.A. called Homeboy Industries. They have rehab services, a cafe and a bakery that employs the ex gang members, and they have free laser tattoo removal for gang related tattoos or tattoos holding them back from getting work. It's really good. One of our good friends works there.

Been watching lots of documentaries...

RUSH: Beyond the Lighted Stage

All This Mayhem (tragic story about the Pappas brothers, Australian skateboarders)

Life Itself (the Roger Ebert story)

and today, The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir

All good! All on Netflix streaming. All kind of sad and moving at parts. The Rush one and the Grateful Dead one both gave me a little more appreciation for those bands and their members than I previously had. Really interesting. Need more rockumentaries.

Also highly recommend A Band Called Death... about an unknown African American punk rock band in Detroit in the 70s.

Band called death was cool. Check out "Beware Mr Baker" or "Last Days Here"...both a little darker (they highlight some pretty down and out people) but they're worth it IMO. Should both be on netflix

Also "Muscle Shoals" is a must watch!

Thank you @9Years, I was trying to watch Beware of Mr. Baker but Netflix wouldn't cooperate! The title would pop up and then vanish... Same thing happened with the Jimi Hendrix doc I tried to watch (Hear My Train A Comin').

I did see Last Days Here a while back, really good! Which also reminds me of another good one, Anvil.

I'll look for Muscle Shoals.

    • Hi everyone I'm just back from second session, there are still two more to go as my artist said. I only wish to hear your opinion about my artist's skill and style, appreciate honest opinions. 
    • Hey, thanks for the note.  Sorry for the delay - I just saw your reply. I’m looking at doing a half sleeve floral design black and gray.  No deep meaning, I just think it looks cool, is relatively timeless and “organic”.  My biggest concern is coming up with a design that doesn’t look too feminine.  It’s not exactly easy to cover up or laser a half sleeve! I met with a local artist... her work looks good, but she really rushed me a long and just seemed annoyed with every question I had... really annoyed with the whole conversation.  The design had great detail and probably would have looked good on someone - just wasn’t the style I was going for and communicating that to her would have been a very painful process, so I moved on. I also tried one of the online tattoo design sites just to have them take my concept from words to paper and further refine it.  Let me tell ya, that has been a very special process and likely a quick $114 down the drain.  Hah!  Here are a few inspiration photos... I’m thinking more negative space and not filling the background with ink.  Love shading and detail as well. I would love any thoughts or other inspiration photos that may help me along! In the meantime, I’m on a wait list waiting to get a virtual consult with an artist at the best shop in Minneapolis... will probably take at least a few weeks just to talk with him online.
    • It takes 4 - 6 weeks to heal a tattoo. Don't overthink it. You know that rough/dry patches are NORMAL during the healing process, right?
