If You Enjoy Truly Bizarre Games, Try Golden Light (PC) - slough
A Russian software developer lost his job and decided to make this game instead of looking for another job. It's a surreal first-person "roguelike" game with horror and dark comedy elements. It's unique, to say the least. [link=(https://store.steampowered.com/app/1245430/Golden_Light/)]Steam...

re: Prospect on Netflix - slough
I saw this a while back and I liked that, unlike a lot of science fiction, it followed characters that had little to no influence. For example, I'd like to see a Star Wars movie about the daily life of a janitor on the Death Star. (This story would not have a happy ending, I suppose.)...

re: Demon's Souls Remake Thread - slough
I don't know. The more footage I see of this, the less I like it. I think it will do a good job of showing off what the PS5 can do, but there seem to be a lot of misguided character redesigns, additional sounds, and extra effects. And while some of the environments look great, others look just ...

re: I watched airplane for the first time - slough
One gag that I didn't notice on my first few watches was at the end of the dog scene when the pilot walks through the mirror. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U4tU3ZRFoUI Police Squad! got a Blu-ray release not too long ago. That's one of the few things on the same level as Airplane! for me. ...

re: Malazan- can I just skip Book 1 - slough
The timelines jump around so much anyway that I don't think it matters. The second book would be a great introduction, I think. It might be worth glancing over a summary of the first book, if you don't think you'll ever read it. But even that probably is not all that relevant to book two. Th...

re: Outer Wilds - discussion - slough
I like Outer Wilds a lot. I eventually hit a wall and didn't know what do do next, though. One of these days I should return to it and use a guide to see how it ends. Or maybe just take another look and maybe whatever I was stuck on will become clear. ...

re: Demon's Souls Remake Thread - slough
The footage looks impressive, but I think it's lost something in not being so hazy. I didn't even know what Flamelurker looked like, for example. I just knew it was fast and intimidating and on fire. Now it looks more like a generic video game boss with everything sharp and distinct. ...

Gormenghast is excellent. If I were to reread either that or Lord of the Rings right now, I would choose Gormenghast. ...

re: Horror movie recs? - slough
I think a lot of people passed on [link=(https://letterboxd.com/film/the-exorcist-iii/)]The Exorcist 3[/link] because the second one was so bad (or so I heard--I didn't bother seeing it). The third movie is actually based on the second book, and it's written and directed by the author. It probabl...

re: The Butterfly Effect - slough
I like this movie a lot. I prefer the director's cut except for the fortune teller part. (I think it's annoying how in movies every legend is true and everyone who claims to have supernatural powers actually does.) I've heard Ashton Kutcher is annoying in some roles but The Butterfly Effect is th...

re: KLSU "Weird Music" Show from the 1990s - slough
I had never heard any Hawkwind, but I listened to some today while working. Reminds me of Eloy. That's not what I had in mind (and I only started listening to KLSU in the early 1990s), but I always like discovering new music. ...

re: Deadly Premonition 2: A Blessing in Disguise(switch) - slough
I had to wait a long time to play the first game until it finally came out on PS3. I really liked it. Now it looks like I will have to wait a while for this one until it (hopefully) lands on PS4. The first game was heavily influenced by Twin Peaks. I wonder how that will translate to the Lou...

re: Carrion - slough
I had been looking forward to this game since playing the demo a few months ago. I second the recommendation for sure. It's kind of like being in the movie The Thing, and playing as The Thing. ...

re: Who is more badass: John Wick, Brian Mills (Taken)or Jason Bourne? - slough
I'd have to write in Rama from The Raid. I'd recommend it if you haven't seen it. The movie is structured kind of like a video game, ascending a building floor by floor. https://letterboxd.com/film/the-raid-2011/...

re: KLSU "Weird Music" Show from the 1990s - slough
Dr. Demento played on Sunday afternoons back then, but the show I'm thinking of is a different one. While Dr. Demento focused on funny songs, this other show was more about strange/surreal ones. The tagline for this show was something like "music too strange for popular consumption." ...

KLSU "Weird Music" Show from the 1990s - slough
There was a show on KLSU for a while in the 1990s that focused on unusual music. It started at midnight on either Saturday or Sunday (I forget which) and I used to stay up late to listen to it. I can still remember pieces of some of the specific songs played as part of that show, but I've never b...
