@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.

I finished watching Forest Gump for the second time today, and I absolutely thought it was easily the greatest movie I ever saw. I guess it was the way the story was told in his Point of view, or simply the amazing life he lived, despite his condition. I also loved the quote, "mamma always said life was like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get.Any movies you guys thought were amazing, or simply just plainly enjoyed?

The Lord of the Rings trilogy is absolutely fantastic. They had to cut a lot of what the books had in them, and still managed to recreate an epic adventure. They've been my favorite movies for a long time now, and I don't think that will change any time soon.

Another one I absolutely love is Emperor's New Groove. It's just hilarious. I don't watch it too much anymore, but every time I do it makes me laugh. Even though I know every joke they're still funny, and that is what's important to comedy.

I like the Emperor's New Groove too.

 

As far as stories go I feel that movies usually aren't long enough for the most part for me to be satisfied with any of them.


I believe in judgment of humans through their judgment of fiction, for nothing else tells better of their disposition freed from apprehension.

I am just taking this as a favourite films sort of thread

 

Well, I'm a big Tarantino fan and think all of his movies are amazing - my favourite would be Inglourious Basterds.

 

Other movies I really love re-watching:

 

Love Actually - cute movie and I love how all the characters stories intertwine

 

Inception - cos just epic

 

The Princess Bride - funny, lighthearted

 

Iron Man - BECAUSE TONY STARK

 

The Avengers - same as above, also Chris Evans is my husband (see current avatar)

 

Mulan - favourite Disney film, different and hilarious

 

aaaaaaaaand

 

FIGHT CLUB - if you've seen this then you'll know it only gets better the second time you watch

Fight Club continues to get better the more times you watch it. I can't believe I didn't think of that.

BOOM I told you so. After you see the ending you realise everything and you're like OOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH and then when you watch it again it's so much better because you get it. No spoilers here guys - go watch it. Seriously Brad Pitt is amazing in that film.

Shutter Island - I find it's a more mystery-laden version of Fight Club.  DiCaprio is an excellent actor, the colour schemes are brilliant, and it takes many, many viewings to appreciate all the subtle things Scorsese does in cinematography to hint at the mind screw of an ending (heck, most of the things people complain about such as saturated light actually make perfect sense on more viewings).  I find myself loving this film the more I watch it (where I typically find more holes and issues with the movie on repeating viewings).

 

Monty Python and the Holy Grail - There's an excellent reason people site it again and again.  And again.  And again...

 

2001: A Space Odyssey - This is probably Kubrick and his Kubrick-est.  Insane detail, great story, and an ending I would argue actually makes sense despite what others tell you.

 

12 Angry Men - One of the best written movies from start to finish. 

 

The Usual Suspects - Not perfect but really close to it.  Excellent characters and a movie that certainly gets better on repeated viewings.

 

No Country for Old Men - There are so many instances of minimalism at its best.  A really intense atmosphere and some terrific characters.

 

The Shawshank Redemption - I don't think it's the best movie ever as the IMDb would ask you to believe but it's well done in almost every regard.

love this movie too, it was so hilarious.

 

Well I have a lot of Movies I enjoyed a Lot.

 

The fifth Element - probably one of the best movies ever, Chris Tucker as Ruby Rhod is a very good comic relief and the movie is very bright and well written (and Thanks to Moebius, without him, the decor and the world of the movie would be not like that)

 

Asterix and Obelix Mission Cleopatre - The BEST live movie of Asterix, a French-Belgium gallic hero, it's a french movie but it is excellent, it is an adapation but a very good one, the film was only In french for the moment, I guess. but if you can see it, just GO! (yes In France we have good movies too)

 

Treasure Planet - The relationship between Jim and Silver ♥ This Disney, how amazing <3 

 

But there's too much movies I enjoyed, i can't put all of them

There's a few I had in mind that were already mentioned, like Shawshank, Forrest Gump, and The Usual Suspects, so I'll add some others.

 

The Green Mile - Honestly, this film is a fantastic watch. The way it begins, develops and takes its time almost feels like the passage of time they feel. The characters are played fantastically, and it's quite an emotional film, I think it's the only time I cried watching something.

 

Apocalypse Now - It's brutal, vivid, dark, dehumanising, horrifying. It's war - and no film showed this side better than here. An absolute masterclass in film, and quite possibly one of, if not the best, films I've seen.

I don't really watch much movies (lack of time, interest, short attention span, etc.) so I think I might treat this thread like a "list of potential movies to watch based on others' comments" instead of something I'll actually contribute to lolol
