Just love this series so much. Besides the drama and characters, it's such a superb insight into that era and culture, without it being pretentious or overtly self-aware that it's doing so.

Glad it's going to be the last one, as a never ending series always turns bad.

Like >>19949 I have some pretty strong appreciation for the film and past series, but I was left feeling a little underwhelmed by the first episode. The dialogue and interaction between the characters doesn't feel as natural and understated as it has in the past series, which for me was one of the most winning attributes of Meadows' direction. Hopefully this lukewarm episode is just because it's the first act to get us refamiliarised with the gang and geared up for the oncoming Shane Meadows Emotional Mangletm. Eagerly awaiting the rest to see where their story ends.

I've always thought that Bottom was a very British programme. Something about Richie especially. It offers a good look into aspects of British mannerisms/culture, but through a sort of mocking lense. When watching it I'm always wondering whether it looks dated because it is, or because they were meant to be living in relative squalor anyway. Love the intro music. That, is undoubtedly dated.

I think you've hit on something there, especially in Richie's personality. A lot of his main neuroses, his sexual hang ups, seem to hark back to an almost 1970s "Carry On" bawdiness. The man is obviously stuck in a very British past, left stealing glimpses of dirty photos under fridges while around him Lad and Ladette culture, getting your tits out and helicoptering your todger on the strip, blossom and bloom around him.

I don't think it's necessarily Britishness per se, but a certain aspect of British culture that Richie's character puts focus on. Richie seems to be a fish out of water middle-class twat, who has made a mess of life by being an idiot, and consequently finds it hard to fit in around people of a less sophisticated upbringing. Matters are not helped by the fact he tries to constantly posture himself as of a higher status than he is, despite the futility of such vanity in any case.

It's cringeworthy to watch, but you probably all knew someone like this at one point in time. I still know one as an adult. Did you ever have that one posh knobhead kid at school who made a tit of themselves whenever they tried to fit in with the rest of the proles? Where people would be giving them sideward glances and they remained somehow oblivious of how much they were embarrassing themselves?

Richie's like that, with a dose of psychosis for good measure.

I thought about making a thread for it a few weeks ago but couldn't be bothered.

I'm not sure how I feel about the change in pacing from the start of the series to the most recent episodes. It feels a little like they expended the first 3-4 episodes on gradually building some mystery and intrigue with the Elsters trying to find each other and the adoption of Anita into the Hawkins family, but are now desperately trying to follow a handful of different subplots and cram as much exposition in as possible before the series finale. The "tech talk" at this stage is also making me cringe, but that's what you get with any series where the technology is only a minor mechanism to explore the ethics of robots/stem cells/rockets etc. You have to route to a new filepath around the holes in his root code in his synthcortex and they have blue blood and oh no he got a virus in his mainframe his brain is dying aaaaaaa

You're probably far from the only ones; however I would suggest that neither of you actively dislike zombies, rather you are both in fact suffering from advanced symptoms of "I Liked It Before It Was Cool/Popular/Everybody Else".

Zombies have a unique, universal appeal as a form of social reflection, something that the original Romero zombie flicks were great at (with varying degrees of subtlety); everyone can get invested in the setting and concept of a zombie apocalypse. Things have become tedious, however, ever since they were hijacked as a guilt-free villain for American gun-fetishists and the sort of arsehole who watches Doomsday Preppers.

19730 Not reboots, not sequels, not necessarily good
Hope you're ha/v/ing a nice weekend, lads.

The other weekend, I happened to catch John Carter on the telly. It's a delightful tale of a man who is fighting in the American Civil War and then finds himself on Mars in the middle of a surprisingly similar civil war.

I have since been made to feel bad for genuinely enjoying this movie, but after some time spent mulling, I have decided that I don't feel bad at all. Nowadays it seems as though you're only really allowed to boast about liking AAAAAAAA blockbuster Hollywood films that are invariably remakes, sequels, prequels, homages or re-imagings of well-established film franchises, or arty-farty movies if you want to feel smarter than the Hollywood crowd.

I don't think the people behind John Carter were under any kind of illusion that their movie would become the next Star Wars and become imprinted into people's lives as a household name, I think they just wanted to make a sci-fi movie, and I don't think there's anything at all wrong with that.

What I'm asking, lads, is for recommendations of (preferably recent, because I'm well aware there's mountains of vintage cheese) trashy movies. Sci-fi, fantasy, whatever you like.

>the potential loss of $50m+

John Carter is one of the biggest flops of all time, losing an estimated $121m. That's a fuckton of money, however you slice it. I can't blame a studio for looking at that and thinking "sod it, we'll make a sequel".


>if you have a properly famous lead, a huge budget that makes headlines, and aren't making a comedy, your film will be a guaranteed success.

I'm not sure how you define a huge budget or a properly famous lead, but 47 Ronin lost $149m despite a $225m production budget and Keanu Reeves on the posters. Awful films like Pearl Harbor can make a shitload of money off the "big budget, big star" formula, but it is still possible to lose money on a blockbuster.

Saw and Mad Max are interesting examples to bring up - they both cost in the region of $1m to produce, but grossed over $100m. It is possible to make a massive hit on a relatively small budget, but there's no formula for it.

A major studio could fund 100 films at $1m rather than one blockbuster at $100m, but the traditional infrastructure of promotion and distribution can't scale up to handle so many releases. A lot of really good low-budget films sink without trace because nobody heard about them. I think Netflix might be changing things, because they cut cinemas out of the equation and can do very targeted promotion at low cost.
