      Orphan Attachments   07/31/2018

      I have been doing some housekeeping lately and I've noticed that I had a lot of orphaned attachments. Attachments get orphaned when the PM or post is deleted without removing the attachment first. Deleting a PM or post does not delete the attachment and the file or image remain on the server. I'd like to ask all members to go through their attachments and delete any attachments you don't need anymore or those that have been orphaned. Where can I get a list of my attachments? Click on your display name in the upper right corner of the forums and pick "My Attachments" from the drop-down list. How can I tell an attachment is orphaned? If the PM has been deleted, you'll see a message like this in your attachment list: Unfortunately there is no message if the post has been deleted, so please check your old posts. We do purge old birthday threads every once in a while. Also some hosted projects have been shut down, so you may have orphaned attachments on one of those locations. Thanks!

"Bad" Movie Suggestions

Recommended Posts

I have just found this thread and oh, it is just golden! We do periodic meetings&viewings with friends where we watch this kind of movies, and, well, here I have found some of the memorable titles already seen but also some new ones.

Today is one such meeting, coincidentally just like as your movie night VM. :)

I will parse some of the mail lists and post suggestions here later.

BUT first and foremost, "Zardoz" (1974)! The movie actually turned out to be more interesting than bad for me, and Sean Connery there is... really something you probably have not seen yet! The movie premises on a high-sci-fi utopian society. The movie itself is the root of the infamous "Gun is good, (...)" quote.

Sharing is caring! :D

 

This one was downright terrible. They spent the whole budget on the one giant monster and ran out of money for the script. The babies looked like crap. Matthew Broderick clearly gave up halfway through and started ad-libbing his lines and got very sarcastic while the script writers gave up and threw in magic, almost as if someone upstairs said 2 hours was too short. It wound up being 2.5 hours. :P

 

I need to see Zardoz. It's infamous for that swimsuit. :P

Brace yourself then, especially for when they reveal the origin of the title :D

As for some of the parsed lists' contents(there will be more, it is just a lot of links to go through):

Evilspeak (1981) - the military, demons, computers, 80's. The Stuff.

Pieces (1982) - a chainsaw jigsaw.

Class of Nuke 'Em High (1986) - the true horror of the nuclear power! This movie has a comedish focus and terrible, terrible monsters. Also sequels, it was quite successful I guess?

Iron Sky (2012) - Nazis have been hiding on the dark side of the moon this whole time.

The Man Who Saves The World (Dünyayi Kurtaran Adam) (1982) - also known as Turkish Star Wars, due to "borrowing" of background footage. Also the music at times seems familiar. The story is about two men crashing on a planet to battle evil overlord and his army. The dialogue and the fight scenes are almost as terrible as the "monsters". Be wary when watching it.

Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter (2001) - a Canadian production with unusual take on vampire hunting genre, quite entertaining.

Hospital Massacre was dumb. A bunch of people get stabbed and then it is revealed that it was all one big hallucination caused by an unknown illness. No plot, no point. Stupid.

 

At least from what I gathered. Wikipedia has a slightly different plot but the lack of dialogue made it a bit hard to follow.

So my wife is a fan of horror movies. Personally, I can't stand them. I'm trained to assess and respond while maintaining a survival mindset. So people running around doing the dumbest things imaginable just grates on my nerves. However, I got sucked into one last night. It's called Tucker and Dale vs Evil. It's billed as horror, and kind-of shot in the fashion, but is really just a series of poor decisions, based on bad assumptions, ending in death. It was bad - but good too. I'd recommend Netflixing it some time you get bored. Plus, it stars Sock from Reaper! (I barely recognized him.) :P

Favorite lines:

  • "First time I'm grateful I ain't hung like a bear!"
  • "It's true.. You're half-hillbilly"
  • "Ah man, they cut off his bowlin' fingers!"

I'm with you on most horror movies. They are so stupid. I prefer thrillers and suspense, which are usually more thoughtful. One I saw recently that had a good twist at the end was called Man Vs. If you think you might watch it at some point, don't look at the poster, that ruins it!

Tucker and Dale vs Evil is a comedy poking fun at horrors by inverting everything.

 

I have used spoiler tags but the Preview just displayed a quote-style box around the text instead, hopefully the actual submission will correctly handle spoilers. Otherwise, SPOILERS AHEAD!

 

It contains the standard content, a group of young rich Americans on the road heading to some remote location for a jolly holiday (sex, drink, drugs), but they get mixed up with some local hillbillies. The expectation at this point is that the hillbillies will decide to stalk and murder the city slickers one by one, but in fact the young rich Americans all kill themselves around the locals in various unlikely accidents, each time one dies the others assume the locals killed them, causing the youngsters to want revenge and so going on the offensive, only to yet again suffer various mishaps resulting in death around the locals. Meanwhile the poor locals (Tucker and Dale, nice but dim) at their father's log cabin are getting more and more scared about how all these city kids keep committing suicide all around them, and fear some evil power is making this happen.

I enjoyed it.

 

EDIT

Oh good, the submitted post does handle spoiler tags correctly, it's just the preview which doesn't (Andalay! Preview is broken!).

The Horror Channel thinks ST: Voyager is a horror? :rofl:

They show lots of Sci-fi too.  Should be re-branded Horror and Sci-Fi.  It's a shame VM can't get the channel as it shows lots of bad films.  Many of them are quite entertaining!

Well, if he can get Syfy than he should be okay. They play more cheesy horror now than anything remotely related to Sci-Fi it seems. Guess they got sick of people complaining when they'd pull a good show off-air after the first season & stuck to replaying things like Roboshark vs Megagator 12. Too bad I can't get The Horror Channel if they're playing Sci-Fi, LOL!

The Room was discussed on The Final Cut today. Not too sure about this, but co- writer Tom Bissel's assessment might do the trick:

Quote

It is like a movie made by an alien who has never seen a movie, but has had movies thoroughly explained to him. There's not often that a work of film has every creative decision that's made in it on a moment-by-moment basis seemingly be the wrong one. The mood [...] ranges from startling cruelty, shocking misogyny, to unbelievable inventiveness. [...] The Room, to me, shatters the distinction between good and bad. Do I think it's a good movie? No. Do I think it's a strong movie that moves me on the level that art usually moves me? Absolutely not. But I can't say it's bad because it's so watchable. It's so fun. It's brought me so much joy. How can something that's bad do those things for me?
