Criterion cover of Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood. I thank Sphinx for removing the original title and markings. He did it as a favor to me right before he left the board for good and I'm still grateful. The irony is that I never considered the film a masterpiece at all. There are much better Kurosawa films and even a better Kurosawa Shakespeare adaptation, but I just liked the cover and figured it fit my persona on the board.

That's pretty frightening.  Those kids looked either like they were drugged into a stupor or were enthralled with the joy of killing something.  Now I understand why when I was a kid my mother would kick me outside after more than an hour of video games.

Just realized what RegularKarate's avatar is from and I think it's brilliant. Where did you find it? did you do it yourself?

Thanks, I didn't make it, it's part of a four panel thing that this artist did.  I really liked it and just picked one of them.

whats it from?
“The myth by no means finds its adequate objectification in the spoken word. The structure of the scenes and the visible imagery reveal a deeper wisdom than the poet himself is able to put into words and concepts” – Friedrich Nietzsche

The Room!  

Oh man, I didn't realize it either until just now.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Never saw that movie. Not ashamed

Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.
