What is the best /tg/ movie?
and why is it Blade Runner?
I'll just leave this here.
If you say anything else, you don't really know /tg/.
actually, streets on fire.
because it feels like a party is forming, because it feels like a one shot adventure, because it is fucking cheesy as a 17 year old gm would do.
The book is alright. It's got some good moments but it's not really anything special. It's also pretty different from the movie. Especially the ending.
I'll go on record to say the movie is way better.
literally Imperial Guard: The Movie
Don't read it if it's your first Dick book, there are much better entry level ones. Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch blew my fucking mind when I was in high school, Scaner Darkly and The Man from High Castle are great(Scaner Darkly has a nice movie based on it). From what I remember DADoES has shitload of references and "Dickology", which you wouldn't get if you aren't already familiar with the author.
It's worth it though. His books aren't consistently good but they always are a wild rides.
This movie gets me so fucking mad.
Oh hey the Apaches are shooting at the dragon.
They aren't doing very well, maybe they should aim for the GIANT GAPING MOUTH I MEAN COME ON
But ok, that doesnt happen, so what happens when the dragons fight?
THE GOOD DRAGON SPITS FUCKING FIRE INTO THE OTHER DRAGONS MOUTH AND KILLS IT GEE WIZ WHOULDA THUNK
The greatest and most perfect movie that has ever graced mankind.
Is it bad that I own the special edition blu-ray in the steel-book with the comic and special features DVD?
Favorite quality: while the film is a blu-ray, the special features are on a standard DVD.
Not gonna spam the thread with all of them, there are lie 20 in total, but I feel this one definitely one of the better ones.
shame on yall. Although I can't expect much from questfags and redditors
>Is there a suggested movie list?
It would just be a list of good/cult genre films. There's not a lot of criteria into saying what movies are essentially /tg/ because most genre settings coincide with /tg/ settings and that's all that really matters. Every western or noir or scifi can be a /tg/ movie because we play those settings and scenarios.
Dark Heresy: The Movie
I just saw this a few days ago. Really interesting from a worldbuilding perspective.
They both deal with completely distinct aspects of the Imperium (adeptus arbites vs. warp travel/gellar fields) so comparing them doesn't really make sense. But yeah, together they are both the best 40k movies, and a nod to >>45379475 as well.
Have this kinda /tg/ Oshii movie
I still adore the movie, cheese and all. It's so fun. And the music kicks so much ass.
The thing with the car changing hands feels like it could have been a running gag at the table. And the final sledgehammer duel feels like a good example of how to do a one on one fight where the rest of the party characters are still present and invested in the action. The NPCs even show up to watch.
Walter Hill movies are good movies to watch with friends. Even the one with Charles Bronson as an underground bare knuckle fighter. His stuff always has an undercurrent of camaraderie that brings to mind TRPG sessions.
Eye in the Sky isn't his meatiest work, but it's always been my favorite just because the plot's gimmick is so unique and awesome and its easy for beginners to get into.
I've always thought that taken together as mirror images of one another his best works are Ubik and Maze of Death. They reflect the gradual darkening of PKD's views on hypostasic states and are very interesting in that regard.
Isn't that the one Michael Crichton wrote, and it's basically Jurassic Park but with robot cowboys?
Yeah, but it's pre-Jurassic park. I see it as Michael Chriton toying with the idea. The inclusion of Dinos years later perfected his idea by nailing the "playing with god" theme.
No one has suggested Dark Crystal either. Could it be because boys in the setting have
Also, no Star Wars? Is it because it would be too obvious?
Original Star Trek always felt very tabletop to me. Three player characters and assorted NPCs and red shirt hirelings meet up each week to explore a new planet. The DM keeps resorting to energy alien gods as antagonists because the party min-maxed diplomacy (Kirk) and intelligence checks (Spock). Bones was the heal bitch. And best character.
The players would complain every once in awhile for a new setting. Someone wants to run a modern game. Someone wants to a Roman Gladiator game. Someone wants ship to ship combat. Someone wants space station intrigue with tribbles. So the DM compromises to fit all these things into the overarching campaign.
One time the DM's girlfriend breaks up with him and we get Spock's Brain.
It even has strange moments that could only come out of a tabletop game such ashttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=miD1drD5M3w
AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU AND YOU
I don't think I'm getting a tabletop vibe. But its my go-to to explain how a PC or a party should fight against a seemingly invincible, persistent "nemesis" like foe. Even before the Terminator. The last third of the movie is basically a running battle.
>Implying Lupin the Third and the castle of Cagilostro isn't the most over the top film, filled player character-esque antics.
Event Horizon is so shitty, I just sat there waiting for the build-up to finish and for shit to get real, and then the movie ended. Like that shit would phase me after I'd seen The Thing.
Dark Crystal is good, but 1977 wizards is most /tg/. That ending...
Good movie. That PTRS, mmm.
have some Cobalt 60, the inspiration for Necron 99.
No mention of Excalibur?
Why are you killing everybody?
>Why are you making everybody die?
>It's my story.
Not the best /tg/ movie, but definitely the most /tg/ movie.
Agreed. I actually loved the Dark Elves of Thor 2, as well...unfortunately the movie was lackluster at best and Malekith himself was boring.
But I loved the designs on the Dark Elves.
No lies, I'm seriously considering introducing a General Odious into my campaign. None of my players have fleshed out their backgrounds so I'm super tempted to make them all connected to one guy and just let things go as they will
Pls no ;_;
I don't think this movie was on Blu-Ray. I don't think they had that kind of budget.
I own the special edition steelbook with the comic and everything, but I'm pretty sure both discs are DVDs.
You are correct, OP.
Everyone obviously knows that Shadowrun is heavily inspired by Blade Runner.
It's pretty clear that Cyberpunk 2020 and its other variations are also inspired by Blade Runner.
But behold Android.
This board game was originally conceived as Blade Runner: The Game, but there was no way the devs or the publisher could possibly secure the rights necessary for that.
This is a storytelling game to rival Tales of the Arabian Nights. It is unquestionably my favorite game in my collection.
Android's setting is the same setting Android: Netrunner is set in. It also hosts Android: Infiltration (which is unfortunately basically an Incan Gold ripoff) and the upcoming game Android: Mainframe.
I have little doubt that Fantasy Flight will eventually create an Android RPG, given that they're about to publish a 272-page Android setting book.
Blade Runner was already a /tg/ movie, but it will only become more so as the years pass.
Are we past trying to find the best /tg/ movie and just posting some /tg/-related movies now?
Against-the-theme WoD campaign here
It is absolutely a /tg/ movie. It's about a fairly ordinary dude leaving behind the 'normal' world, and entering into the absolute madness of alien conspiracies, double crosses and gang conflict, and chases for weird fucking macguffins. It is one of the most /tg/ movies I've ever seen, and it's fucking brilliant.
Goddamn it, I bought a copy of Heart Of Darkness a couple of months after going on a binge of Farcry 2 & 3 and Apocalypse Now, and I've still not gotten around to reading past the first 10 pages.
Dunno if blade runner is the best, surely my favorite though. What I do know is that GitS is the best animation to ever come out of japan, /tg/ or not.
The book is amazing, as basically all Dick, but the film being its own thing is also amazing.
the best /tg/ film is six string samurai. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfTWYP4bE28
