Forgive me if I'm just being dumb here, but what do you mean by that?
I meant just what I said: which anime TV series does this scene with the mechas come from?
I looked it up, you can watch season one on HiDive, and both seasons on Adult Swim
Thanks, but what's the title of it?

Hey guys just me here once again.

I last watched the Italian Western titled Death Rides A Horse.

Just watching some movies of the genre outside the sphere of Sergio Leone. Although this movie does contain a few of the major players like Lee Van Cleef and Ennio Morricone on the score.

It's a movie with great filmmaking elements within a fairly standard revenge narrative western.

Unfortunately my dvd is a pretty poor quality transfer and I think the framerate is a bit off most likely to a PAL to NTSC transfer framerate difference. So when that isn't right it takes away a bit of the magic from the look of the movie that is usually really a high point for me in Italian Westerns.

It's also a fairly darker and more grim Western than even the dollars movies.

Yes! This is easily among my favorite non-Leone spaghetti Westerns (not that I've seen a ton or anything). Van Cleef is great as always, and John Phillip Law turns in a really solid performance as well, and is just a great visual fit for the genre.

Also I watched the Clint Eastwood movie Hang Em' High.

Now the theme is clearly in the title but it's all down to presentation. The film opening with an attempted vigilante lynching was pretty confronting. Later in the movie I thought they handled the existential themes of capital punishment in a pretty thought provoking way.
But in addition to that it felt like a pure Western like all the genre expectations came through but in a way that brought the movie up.

I have started watching TV series over movies because so many movies especially this year have left me in massive disappointment.

So far I have enjoyed

- The Patient
- The suspect

Currently watching Dahmer - Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story - Season 1

With ''The Twelve'' and ''Keep Breathing'' following up the next.

Hey guys just me here once again.

I last watched the 1972 movie Horror Express starring Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

I've been aware of this movie for a while and i'm glad I was finally able to get around to seeing it. This movie is so good. Ever wanted to see Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing star alongside Telly Savalas? Savalas even steals the show for his time in the movie.

The beast is really interesting as well. It's kind of genuinely frightening. The visual of the pale white bleeding eyes on the victims is particularly grisly.

Hi Jeff-Goldblum2!

It’s been a long time since I last saw Horror Express but I think your final paragraph might have given away some details that weren’t revealed until the climax. Would you consider editing your post and putting a spoiler tag around that paragraph in case anyone is interested in watching the movie after reading your description?

Yeah, definitely a little bit of a spoiler, there. I don't mind, but someone might. I actually had that movie on DVD as a kid, but never bothered to watch it. I'll have to correct that, now that I've figured out how great Hammer horror is.

I watched the 4K re-release of James Cameron's Avatar in IMAX 3D. It was so breathtaking. By far one of the greatest cinematic experiences this year. It actually felt liked you were in Pandora. Although it was the theatrical cut and not the extended edition or even the Special Edition, but that's fine. Still an amazing movie to watch on the big screen.

I last watched Rob Zombie's Munsters movie.

I enjoyed it, to be honest. But within a certain context. Don't get misled it does feel on the level of a Full Moon movie. Maybe something like Death Kappa. Except those movies are better.

Rob Zombie's movies are really 50/50. He will create masterpieces like House of A Thousand Corpses and The Devils Rejects then follow it up with shitty films like Three from Hell and the Halloween remakes. Now that I think about it his music is the same way. His stuff with White Zombie is really good, but I only like about half of his solo stuff.

On the subject of Rob Zombie, a little piece of trivia: my GF's aunt? (great aunt maybe?), who used to preform with Dolly Parton back in the days, actually is good friends with Rob Zombie. She's had him over and apparently they even talked about my GF's portfolio, which is mostly special effects and gore make up. The same aunt is also friends with Tom Savini, and has talked to him about her portfolio before. Just some fun trivia. Id love to meet both of them someday.

The more recent episodes of Beavis and Butt-head (that still feels weird to say after almost 30 years) and the season premiere of Family Guy. Why I still watch the latter is beyond me.

I enjoy most of Rob Zombies stuff. Corpses and Rejects. Definitely. I actually like Halloween II more than his first because it feels pure Rob Zombie, for better or worse. 31 was pretty good. I wasn't sure about 3 From Hell but liked it way more when I rewatched it. I liked The Munsters but on a completely different wavelength that I normally appreciate a movie.

On the music side of things I love Astro Creep 2000, Hellbilly Deluxe and Sinister Urge but I also enjoy some of the others. I don't mind his latest one.

Over about two months, I watched Star Wars: The Clone Wars from start to finish, and tonight I finished it with season 7. Overall an excellent series, and while it had its low points, it also had its highs that I think are highs of the franchise as a whole, especially the very last arc, which is just peak.

In addition to starting Barry, I've also picked Rick and Morty. I've only ever seen one episode before, and that was that episode with Mr. Meseeks. It's pretty damn funny.
