Metropolis is indeed awesome, but the pinnacle of silent cinema is Sunrise. It's really, really accessible, a great story, amazing performances and great special effects - even though it was made in 1929. If you haven't seen any silent films, start with that one: you won't go wrong.

Was the animated movie French? Tom was telling me about it earlier and I wasn't sure if it was the same thing.
It's a Japanese animated movie based on a Tezuka manga.



I don't know about any French animated movie or involvement or anything like that.

What was the name of that silent movie they redid last year (or was it this year)?

The Artist, I think?

The movie may have been adapted from manga, but the original silent film is what inspired it.

@MrCatDog: Never seen that one before, I'll have to check it out. Hopefully I can rent it on Amazon VOD or something...maybe Netflix.

When I was in high school and actively taking computer classes my WPM was up in the 90's, but I've really slaked off the past few years not being in school as much. It's gone down to around 65 or 70 I'd say. I haven't taken a typing test in a few years though.

I've always wanted to watch Metropolis, but just never have. I saw it's up on Netflix now... maybe I should get on that or something.

Speaking of WPMs, last time I checked mine was 108, but I hear that's not impressive anymore, so feh.

I haven't been watching anime like I should be. I have like twenty that I've been told to watch but I've been struggling to do so.

I just finished Evangelion for the first time. Now I need to talk my boyfriend into watching either Angel Beats with me or Arrested Development since he hasn't seen either and I love both.

I feel like I've been getting behind on my anime watching.. For several series I'm following, I'm several episodes behind. Various things have come up so I haven't been able to watch as much as I would like to.

Gah, I need to get myself back on my anime watching track.

It's hard to get back on once you've fallen off, but a lot of that is psychological because it feels like there's SO MUCH to get caught up on. Just watch one, maybe two episodes a day right before you go to sleep imo. If you set it up in your schedule, you won't feel guilty about wasting time doing it since you already made time for it, and that's not a lot of time to waste anyway and you'll really be caught up in no time.

I need to start on Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Angel Beats, Durarara!!! and a couple others that I think includes Code Geass and ToraDora... Whatever, I'm enjoying my rented Naruto seasons (1-2) because I miss the old series and it's like the only anime Hastings has a surplus of.

Whelp, anime talk.

Minzy, I think all the series you mentioned are great for various reasons (I have yet to watch the whole Durarara!!!, though). If you want any recommendations, I'd be happy to pass an opinion.

I find this thread shifts to anime talk quite often, which I don't get since there's already a Japanese Entertainment board and not everyone watches anime, which results in the thread becoming inactive because not everyone can participate in the conversation.

Someone actually tried to create another topic for others to reply to about WPM, which was then deleted just because the thread's current topic was anime. That isn't right. Is it that bad if two different topics are discussed at the same time in this thread?

there was a time...once upon a time...where all the mods were talking about football/soccer.

Then Mr Cat Dog stepped in and saved the day! (Back when he was a mod btw)

But yeah, I would much rather talk about WPM tbh

If it's not a discussion in depth, then we are allowed to chit-chat about things that belong to other sections.

I think it was allowed to have multiple topics in previous DCCs, but I didn't use to pay enough attention to know when the rule was changed and why.

Goooo watch Angel Beats. It's THE best anime ever. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll beg for more. :D

Speaking of anime, Sword Art Online is my top anime at this time, but unfortunately I have to wait every Saturday for every episode. In the meantime, I am finishing up on Rosario + Vampire, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and will get started on Madoka Magica.

I will honestly say that I simply don't watch anime, nor do I read manga.

I do watch other TV shows, though. I'm in the middle of Psych season 3. You guys should look it up, it's funny as hell. =D

There was more to it than your simplified explanation, Kanto, lol.

It actually switches to anime not really as often as it used to XD;

I'll take your word for it, but it really doesn't seem any more complicated than that from an outsiders point of view. It just looks biased and uncalled for. If you can't change the topic (or make a sub topic) in a thread that's supposed to encourage multiple topics to be discussed, what's the point in the thread?

Echoing what Bloodex said, I don't watch anime or read manga either. I tend to watch TV shows on the internet from BBC's and Channel 4's websites instead of on the actual TV in my room (which I should really start doing tbh).

Wait, I lied, I used to read the Naruto manga after my friend kept pestering me to. And I did like it. But apparently Naruto's lame? >>

Yeah you'll have to take my word for it.

Dipu Live likes Naruto so I don't think anyone's allowed to call it lame in the DCC, hahah.

I'm becoming more and more like him everyday =D

Well, I did stop reading about a year ago. I think the furthest I got was when Sazuke beat Itachi. Boy, was that intense.

Yeah, I don't watch anime or read manga. But it's not like I'm against it! I just haven't been shown enough coolios anime or manga series to enjoy it :P

Also, I feel manga is kinda messy, but please enlighten me :)
