The Dark Crystal is a classic Jim Henson movie. It's basically children's horror, it's a pretty dark movie, but also great. It certainly has a different look and feel to Sesame Street and The Muppet Show. His next movie, Labyrinth, continued the dark theme, but was a bit more kid friendly (some comedy, some cute characters and singing, compared to The Dark Crystal's serious and kind of grotesque designs) .I saw The Dark Crystal when I was about 10 or 11 and parts of it scared me, but I loved it.If you haven't seen Labyrinth, try that one too. David Bowie rocks as the goblin king.
The Black Hole is another one of the dark kids movies I used to love, but watching it on DVD actually hurts the experience. For anybody that doesn't know it, it's a Disney scifi movie that has a lot of stuff that really isn't suitable for children. But when I was 6 I had coloring books of it, sticker books, a 33rpm record of the movie audio, etc.The problem is that the DVD and above have such a clear picture that the wire work used for the flying robots and anti grav stuff becomes glaringly obvious.Otherwise still an awesome scifi movie. It's gotten a bit of a resurgence on places like Imgur due to the recent black hole photo.Maximilian is still the scariest robot in any scifi movie. Well, the Saturn 3 robot was pretty messed up, but Maximilian wins.
Here's some Avengers: End Game hype!
My 33 album. Oh, I just had an idea... hang on a minute...Ok, I just found a Maximilian mesh on the net and converted it to Oculus Home format. Scale is roughly right (he's about 1.93m apparently).Original source: http://artist-3d.com/free_3d_models/dnm/model_disp.php?uid=3892
RuneSR2 said:Seems like some of the old comic art collectors also went to see the movie - here's a quote from the ComicArt-L e-mail discussion list "Don’t know if this was already mentioned but don’t wait through the credits this time. No extra bits at the end. Oh, and make sure you go to the bathroom before, this is a long one."
If you like your Zombie films, I just watched Train to Busan. I don't usually like films with subtitles that's why I've never watched it up until now. I'm glad I did though because it's an all action Zombie movie and has great reviews.https://www.amazon.co.uk/Train-Busan-English-Subtitled-Gong/dp/B01MS6I4YJ/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Train+to+Busan&qid=1555914261&s=gateway&sr=8-1
What films have you seen that you would rate a 10/10?
Talking about Alien though, I also really enjoyed the movie Pitch Black and the follow on movies to it.
@RuneSR2 - Yes, I'd go with a 6/10 for Train to Busan. It's really difficult finding a movie that is 10/10 because there's so many crappy movies about now. I liked some episodes of Black Summer and think the best was episode 2 that was mainly in a car. The guy driving that car really made me laugh at times and he was my fav character in it.I think it takes an age between films before I come across a good one. The House That Jack Built was a good film and a refreshing change due to the fact it made me wince I'm trying to think of another film I really enjoyed and something like Schindler's List springs to mind. Have you seen that film? It's an old one made in 1993 and at first I thought I'd be put off because it's made in Black & White. After watching it though I thought it was better in Black & White rather then done in colour. I think I've seen most movies in this thred, but going to have a look in case I've missed any.What films have you seen that you would rate a 10/10?
