What is a Marxist analysis of it? Anonymous 10/05/2020 (Mon) 12:16:14 No. 16875 [Reply]
This video has some interesting takes https://youtu.be/B3PewHEltpA

>>16875 its actually not that bad from a marxist perspective, its almost like a childrens book made under socialist realism (except the "muh both sides" ending). Certainly better than harry potter. Basically the capitol is an imperialist power subjugating its colonies by creating economic monocultures in the districts. It has a sophisticated culture industry that reinforces the subjugation of the districts.

>>16875 Shitty shit lib shit. Liberal entertainment is garbage for smooth brain corporatists.

>>16879 It has good concepts, but it fails pretty badly in execution. You could actually improve the movie and actually make it pretty damn interesting. But truly, it's really just corporate trying to skimp out on costs by watering down their swill and then hoping to sell the consumers cheap hooch without them noticing it's crap.

are fashion shows too bourgeois?
short answer: yes
>>16751 I don't like fashion shows, the fashion they sho isn't really appealing

Das Leben Der Anderen - historically accurate or Porky propaganda? Anonymous Comrade 10/02/2020 (Fri) 21:11:13 No. 16754 [Reply]
>>16754 Put this in the movie thread please, I highly doubt it will garner significant thread discussion here on its own.
It's a propaganda movie, pure and simple, made by a Prussian nobleman who later failed in Hollywood.

Consumer Goods in Socialist states Anonymous Comrade 06/11/2020 (Thu) 02:17:25 No. 10420 [Reply]
I'm interested in what sort of consumer goods were there in the USSR, Maoist China, etc. Like what kind of toys, games, books, snacks, clothes, drinks, etc. they had?

Any of you like modeling in blender? I'm really amateurish at it but I recently made these two and felt like sharing them somewhere. and what better place to share than on lefty pol.

>>8379 the models look great, but I'm not a big fan of this textureless, flat shaded artstyle.
>>8343 the model itself seems fine, i've never worked with blender so i'm not exactly sure how cycles works but you definitely need to introduce surface imperfections and at least a bump map. it looks too smooth right now.
>>16625 there's supposed to be normal maps and roughness maps on it but clearly it barely makes any difference. >introduce surface imperfections. If you have any that aren't going over the top, share, them please, I still want the thing to look shiny and clean.

Rail Appreciation Thread Anonymous Board owner 08/15/2019 (Thu) 22:33:23 No. 11238 [Reply] [Last]
It's that time again. Post trams and trains and other rail vehicles. Both vehicles from AES and c*pitalist countries welcome.

I am looking for this one very aesthetic picture of a tram going down a grassy incline. I think it was from Czechoslovakia but not sure.

>>16405 That image was already part of the mistake. Letting road vehicles clutter up the streets and compete with light rail was how they argued to get rid of the light rail.
>>16406 Letting private business own public transport was the first and biggest mistake.
>>16407 I work with the municipal government and the idiots cannot fathom the idea of a carless society, despite the fact that most people have to use the dreaded and super expensive private collective transport (and most have to walk at least an hour a day on top). During the day, there are more cars in the city than there are people who live there by like 2x. It's pathological at this point, nobody gives a fuck it seems. There's no such thing as bus lanes and busses are so slow, inaccessible, and expensive, you are better off buying a cheap car. We also lead the country in bike deaths and car crashes. We're not even the largest city. The government workers are so fucking dense, I told them they should ban private use cars, one of them asked, "but if I need to go to the hospital, how would I get there?". Like nigga, ask half the people you represent which don't own cars.

>how do you even measure the intellectual level of movies or do you just 'feel' like they are? You measure by how they treat the viewer. As an example, in Captain Marvel there is a scene where she's breaking out of her chains. If the writer thinks the viewer is a retard, they'll add a shot of a side character going "She's breaking out!", which is exactly what they did. For a movie that expects its viewer to be moderately intelligent they'll assume the viewer can pick up on visual clues, like in Alita: Battle Angel (which doesn't require you to be a genius but you'll miss some stuff if you're not paying attention). This has to do with the changing nature of the film business because of competition from streaming. The number of films released by major studios is down, as are the prospects of mid-budget films https://www.the-numbers.com/market/ https://www.vanityfair.com/hollywood/2019/05/is-the-mid-budget-movie-an-endangered-species The studios are competing by betting on epic big budget films, much as they did in the sixties in their first battle with television. They also have the advantage of playing about as well everywhere in the world. So, when you're spending 200 million on a single film, your focus is going to be on making sure the investment pays off, not innovation or art. That's why nearly all big movies are adaptations, reboots or sequels and why they're all so samey. The Marvel films in particular have hit upon a very efficient formula. Modern information technology has allowed media companies to narrow down the most safe and profitable content in media produced today. They almost always have generic plots. And the epic ending is usually either battling thousands of faceless drones or fighting a villain who monologues every time the fight is about to transition, the serious hero says something serious, the jokey hero says a quip, then they generically fight some more, then something something sky beam does shit, the villain gets arrogant because the plan is working, then the hero says the final quip and the villain makes an “oh shit” face then dies. Avengers, Age of Ultron, Infinity War, Thor Ragnarok, both Guardian of the Galaxy movies, Endgame and Black Panther to name just a few marvel movies all do this. The reason this slides and is liked is because they don't know nor understand alternatives of the past or future. People have no hope so they look up to mythological tales set in modern era and the destruction takes place which one might enjoy in a nihilistic way. It very much reflects many more simple hero-stories of Greek Mythology, however lacking the counterbalances in the form of tales of Oedipus, Orpheus and Phersephone, the Illiad and Hercules' labours. These criticized many aspects of over-powered Greek heroes like Theseus, who just win at everything and are smarter and stronger than anyone they meet. This reflects Adorno's laments on cultural decay and machinization, in his theory of social spectacle and the resulting industry. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M-m_7G31yh4
