      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Forgot the name of the movie...c. 1985, about a guy who spends the night wandering around the streets of NYC. Way whacked flick.

Those are all great flics. Spun and Requiem for a Dream could almost be sequels. How fucked up do you want to go!! mushsmile.gifmushsmile.gif If you ever think about getting hooked on any of them heavy drugs, those movies just might keep you off.

Sixty Million Dollar Man was completely brilliant, subtitled Hong Kong flick, more surreal than stereotypical Hong Kong action flick. I mean, who wouldn't want to have the power to transform into a giant tube of toothpaste?

Spun was absolutely terrible. The plot points are just stupid. A total rip-off of Requiem for a Dream. Even Brittany looks bad.

 

Saw Alien : The Director's Cut at Cinerama this weekend. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

 

and Raising Victor Vargas last night. another thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Spun kicked ass, you must have been expecting a serious drama and missed the subtle comedy to not understand it

 

and add to the list...

 

Pi (by Darren Aronofsky, the same guy that did Requiem)

 

Mulholland Drive (the best one so far from David Lynch)

 

Killing Zoe (learn how not to rob the French national bank on a French national holiday while high on the finest French intoxicants)

Nothing can touch Naked Lunch for pure weirdness for me, but another mindjuicer: Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas.

 

Terry Gilliam just has a solid handle on the surreal.

"Apocalypse Now" . . . That was bizarre.

 

"When You Coming Home Red Rider" and "Johnny Got His Gun" both make you go Hmmmmm, wonder what I'd do?

David Lynches early works such as "The Alphabet" and "The Grandmother"

Not so obscure but need to have a good grip on what is funnny: "Happiness" -one of my fav movies!!!

"The Experiment" -amazing german movie

"Vulgar" -not funny like the previews show. very disturbing

"Meet the Feebles"-WTF?

Necro has some good ones, maybe he'll share.

I thought Requiem for a Dream and Spun borrowed a lot from Drugstore Cowboy, both technically and thematically. You could throw some Salton Sea in that soup too.

 

The more movies I see the more I like Kill Bill.

Un Chien Andalou

The scene with the razor will always give me the creeps.

 

Notorious - it's a Hitchcock movie, so it's failry normal, except for the Salvador Dali painted backgrounds in all of the dream sequences. Trippy!

Alejandro Jodorowsky El Topo

eltopo2.jpg

 

also The Holy Mountain

Jodorowsky's stuff is esoteric so might have to be supplimented by chemical means.

 

Anything by John Waters.

 

Liquid Sky...that was the one about the alien who comes to earth to feed off the brain chemicals elicited during sexual orgasm.

 

Invocation of My Demon Brother, Kenneth Anger

Mick Jagger did the soundtrack for this one.

 

Some of these are like watching Eraserhead, a bit difficult to comprehend without some external interpretation
