    Fix'd. Braining is hard.

  • Re: Movie Classics/Must see

    Older Classics

    • The Fifth Element
    • Twelve Monkeys (Brad Pitt's missed Oscar opportunity, incredible performance)
    • Robin Hood: Men in Tights (see also: All Mel Brooks movies because yes)
    • Horse Feathers (And, to a lesser extent, most of the other Marx Brothers movies. But this one is a must-see)
    • Dark City
    • Close Encounters of the Third Kind
    • Airplane II (masterful Shatner that cannot be missed)
    • A Clockwork Orange
    • Titan A.E. (Pinnacle of Bluth animation, IMO)

    Modern movies that are must see because they are a master class in cinematography and/or pacing

    • Ex-machina (both)
    • Kumiko the Treasure Hunter (both)
    • Ghost in the Shell (thx @Sonorous) (2017) (all other criticisms accounted for, this movie was gorgeous)
    • Avatar (cinematography)
    • Prometheus (the first 5 minutes are just... I can't even)
    • Mad Max: Fury Road (because WHOA)

    You have no idea how happy it made me to see these here.

    What happens when you put a $14 stainless band on a $20 Chinese mechanical?

    Don't really know where to put this, so I'll put it here.

    I have a PixelXL and Daydream VR, and just purchased "Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes". So if there's downtime and I'm available, if anyone wants a round, let me know.

    I've personally never played it, but it looks like a fantastically good time.

    Ok, FINE.

    Registered. I'll be dropping my sleeping stuff off Tuesday afternoon, actual participation starting Thursday afternoon.
