re- are in order

My name is Derek, and I am the proprietor and sole administrator of laserdisc.party, the Video Store of the Fediverse™️. I live in a secret underground bunker somewhere on the Island of Montreal.

I am responsible for such tomfoolery as , , and the Greater Fediverse Movie Poll. Sometimes I talk music, sports, and Magic: The Gathering (jank only).

Ask me about my podcasts and my poetry (and other people's podcasts and poetry).

god I love shooting the shit about movies

I'm not sating you *need* ten straight good movies under your belt to be in the GOAT conversation...

but it sure as shit helps

the homie @kiosk brings up Terrence Malick; I know people waver on his post-Tree of Life run, but I don't think any of those movies are less than Good

Kurosawa '48-'90??? Am I reading this correctly???

That's 22 straight; I've not seen a few of these but I want to believe

@derek @alex I wonder if Carpenter could have kept the train rolling if his movies didn’t need to “make money” in order for him to keep doing what he wanted

Hayao Miyazaki is out here putting up video game numbers after retiring twice, what a champ

Show thread

I'm a scumbag film bro at heart so I have to point out that I like each of QT's 10 movies, yes, even the one you hate; but if I had to bet my life on either QT or Hayao making a masterpiece, I'll take Hayao

Show thread

your friend and mine @alex astutely points out that Miyazaki the GOAT is 11-for-11 with number 12 on the way

@derek Miyazaki matches him (and has one more coming)

Is there a longer, better unbroken run of Good Movies by a director than the 11-movie run John Carpenter had between 1974 and 1988?

Good morning Party People, time for some laserdiscourse

animal husbandry is fucked up because animals shouldn't need to get married if they don't want to

Does anyone have any recommendations for dvd's or blu-rays with stellar commentary or maybe just some great special features?
