What I don't like is "House" type techno and rave sounds.

I take it Rap is ok?  Grin

Well, if we're talking stuff that most of the readers here wouldn't be able to relate to Smiley here goes:

German Hopf or Krombacher

Czech Wielkopopowicke Kozel, Budweiser (which I hear the american Bud bought recently after not being allowed to be called Budweiser there Smiley)

Russian Krasny Vostok, Bochkarev, Tinkoff

There's probably nobody here who's had as much different (domestic and import) beer in their lives as me and Orch Smiley In fact, we just drank some Belgian, Russian and American pretending to be Russian at his place last Friday. (Duvel, Chimay, Baltika and Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout if anyone's interested). Oh yeah, we also had Labatt Blue and Sierra Nevada pale ale that night.

Many consider Belgian to be the best beer of all, and it's hard to argue about that. Duvel is just awesome if you can afford $8 bottles Smiley On the other hand, I don't always want anything that thick and rich in taste, that's where traditional pale ales come in, and of those I personally like Czech a lot. Try Zubr, Claster, Brou Czech, and to some extent, the Croatian Carlovacko works pretty well. Baltika #2, and #3 is great, and #6 for dark and #9 for the harder stuff. Labatt is probably the best common Canadian beer, I don't know if there are any local varieties. Sierra Nevada is too dry to my taste, but it's good for a change sometimes. The Imperial Stout was ok if stout is your cup of tea, not mine, though... Can't stand Guinness, either.

German is not bad, but you have to watch out - say, Beck's is good but St. Pauli's Girl is not so much, to me at least. Again, we're talking ONLY the relatively easy to find names here.

Mexican beer is great for the often much needed "something different" (Corona, Pacifico, Dos Equis and Negra Modelo). British New Castle Brown Ale serves the same purpose quite well, too.

There's a great lager in Pennsylvania called Yuengling, it's damn good, as a matter of fact, when you say "give me a pitcher of lager" in any bar there that means Yuengling. It's also (supposedly) America's oldest brewery. Make sure you try that if you happen to be in those parts.

Well, I better stop and let others speak their minds, sounds lke an interesting discussion.

Dying Passion - "Voyage," pretty boring so far.

P.S. Ended up deleting it, not even worth keeping the mp3's.

Uh-huh... now, that's where I'll shine, carrying over my thread "Another pile of steaming puke" from the old forum. Cheesy

Seriously though, I'd have to agree that Fantastic Four wasn't as bad as I thought it'd be.

The latest "new" movies I've seen would be Doom and Zathura (which I didn't finish), which is not surprising considering what's been coming out: http://imdb.com/chart/  is the chart for the week of Dec. 2nd and is pretty representative of the previous few weeks. Guess they ran out of anything remotely interesting on Halloween, and those that came out for it weren't that good, either. The best movie this year so far has been Crash for me, surprise, surprise...

Here it is.. http://www.moria.co.nz/sf/xtro.htm

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000A59Q64/qid=1134161851/sr=8-1/ref=pd_bbs_1/103-9782051-1912649?n=507846&s=dvd&v=glance

Sounds like fun, and apparently there were sequels, too...

Event Horizon was definitely cool. Actually, I was just going to bring up the question of whether to include "sci-fi horror" in this discussion or not. I personally think that it deserves to be. Some purists, however, consider it a whole separate genre.

For that matter, the Alien sequel was damn good, until the shitty "vs" crossovers started happening - "Freddy vs. Jason" and "Alien vs. Predator". Those sucked balls, in my opinion.

Speaking of sci-fi horror, I vaguely remember some flick back from the early 80's, it was called either X-tron or X-tro or something like that I think and there was this scene of a woman giving birth to a fully grown man, that's how that creature (it came from space, of course) reproduced I guess.. Don't remember much more of it, but would like to see it, just wish I could find it. Any of you know that one?

Guess not playing games makes ME a nerd.  Cheesy

Now, THAT's a great way to separate between me and Orch! He's one crazy video game freak, and I've only played maybe two games all the way to the end in my whole life. Those being Diablo and Myst.

As for your comment about Raimi, I don't think he'll mess up Evil Dead 4. ...
As for the original Ring, I thought it blew just as hard as the american one.

Don't confuse me with Orchetect!

As for the asian movies, well, they ARE different from the common understanding of horror. They are (and are supposed to be) eerie... More about the atmosphere, you know.
41  General / General Discussion / Re: Favorite horror flick on: December 06, 2005, 04:09:57 pm
I'm not an expert in this area, but one example I can cite that perhaps others may have heard of would be the original version of The Ring:

Hell yeah I can cite it! I was so damn LUCKY to have seen the original before the american version, which just raped it. Same for Ju-On! There's NOT A SINGLE ONE good american version of the fantastic asian movies.

That area is just boiling with good horror... The Eye... The Spiral.. even Red Eye (not the stupid american thriller), even though it was more for the centimental types. Mind you - it's not necessarily Japanese, some of these movies are from Taiwan, some from Korea.. even Thailand.

Actually, Nazareth - a great self-compiled cd. One of the classic bands that had seeds of pure genius buried in the overall homogenous mass. Only takes digging through all their albums to come up with one of the best cd's of all time Smiley

I reckon after all the work at the damn studio I am half deaf now anyway.
44  General / General Discussion / Re: Favorite horror flick on: December 06, 2005, 03:34:49 pm
...when Raimi starts work on Evil Dead 4, which IS going to be made.  Also, there's going to be The Evil Dead remake hitting theaters late 2006.

I REALLY hope he doesn't make another Land of the Dead... It was ok I guess but you know, I felt it was worse than Dawn of the Dead despite all the effects. There's some sort of "soul" these movies need to have to be as good as the classics. (In short, the new Dawn was good, while Land wasn't.)

And Raimi, now with Spiderman under his belt is probably even more likely to fall into the same pit than Romero.
