    What We Do in the Shadows. Maybe the hardest I've ever laughed at a film, just an absolute silver bullet to my sense of humor. "Petyr is eight thousand years old, we're not going to have Petyr at the meeting" gets near constant play in my house.

    The Suicide Squad. Arguably a superhero film first and foremost but I also spent 80% of it cackling like a maniac so I'm including it here. Just a nonstop gagfest of over the top gross Troma shit, it's great.

    This is the End. I have no idea how well this has aged, but I remember being startled at how hard I was laughing because usually I bounce off of Seth Rogen's sense of humor. The Michael Cera gag alone still makes me laugh when I think about it.

    The Birdcage. I waited way too long in my life to watch this movie. Nathan Lane hamming it up is always a great time, and having watched this recently it is shockingly progressive for a film made in the mid 90s. RIP Robin Williams.

    The Producers (2005). Remember what I said about Nathan Lane? Yeah. The 1967 version is great as well but I just absolutely love the chemistry between Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick in this adaptation.

    Blazing Saddles. A fucking classic. The OG comedy film that every dad will quote ad nauseum. As they should, because this film absolutely rules.

    Apparently my Exploration games list was still in draft unposted. Who knew?!
    • Outer Wilds, even though after you've played it you've kinda seen everything, because it's just that good. Also, haven't done the DLC yet, so let's call this the explorer's edition bundle, so I have something new to investigate.
    • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I haven't played it, but it's been on my 'I should give this a go list for a while and with all eternity ahead of me, maybe a few hours of this is all I need.
    • Dead Cells. Does this even qualify? There's exploration elements, but this is perhaps more Roguevania action rather than exploration, despite the proceedurally generated levels. This is a weird genre, I'm having trouble coming up with examples beyond the obvious.
    • Horizon: Zero Dawn. Yeah, basically everyone else's lists sold me on this. Also it probably is a better fit, categorically? I don't really know anything about it except people like it and it'll probably fill in a couple hundred more hours of the rest of my life if I like it.
    • Fuck it, Turrican II: The Final Fight. Amiga's best, pure nostalgia.
    • Lastly, throw in Super Mario Galaxy or something. The last Mario game I played all the way through was Sunshine, but whatever, this can be fun.

    Okay, now comedy movies:
    • Blazing Saddles
    • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
    • Back to the Future
    • Grosse Pointe Blank
    • Airplane!
    • Hot Fuzz

    I wanted to put Dazed and Confused on this list, but I struggle with the idea of putting it in a pure 'comedy' category, so I'm hoping that there's another coming-of-age or college life category in future.

    Conversely, I have to get Back to the Future in somewhere, but there's a good chance I'll put it on an as-yet unpublished Sci-fi list, whereupon I'd probably either bring in Blues Brothers or maybe Big Lebowski to here?

    Today's genre/category is: Anime TV Shows

    Best-Anime-Shows-of-All-Time.png

    What six anime TV shows do you choose for your communal doomsday bunker?

    Are you leaning towards something incredibly long or a critical darling that while shorter may have value in repeated viewings over the years? Are you going to try to split up your picks by sub-genres within the field, or go by decade?

    I actually might change Re: Zero from that list simply because the story is incomplete, and it's a drama.

    Konosuba is incomplete, but as a comedy it's much easier to let that slide.

    I don't think I have ever watched an anime series for more than 3 or 4 episodes other than Cowboy Bebop, and even that one I trailed off after 6 or 7 episodes. The first few episodes of Avatar were decently promising, but I'd planned to watch it with my kids and they weren't that into it so it never happened. So the plan here is probably just shows that appear to be widely popular with a large number of episodes.

    Pokémon is the only definite inclusion because my kids love it.

    Beyond that? I'll probably need to cheat from other people's lists.

    Compilation. If you needed to include Compilations into any of those other categories, it'd be Arcade or Party games. But again, I think Compilation is a wide enough genre that you can get away with having it be its own entry.

    Dragonball z- While other anime have done it better, this one is here because it was my first.

    Cowboy Bebop- My favorite and in my opinion one of the best ever made.

    Samurai Champloo- Same director as bebop and damn near as good. Continues in the tradition of having a soundtrack that is incredible.

    Demon Slayer - This one isn't done yet but the first and second season are really fucking good and are gorgeous as well.

    Avatar: The last Airbender - One of the best shows ever made period, in any category.

    Yu Yu Hakusho - Another childhood favorite and I think it holds up really well.

    I think if I’m going anime I go for long series because in a doomsday scenario it’s all about quantity of content.

    Cowboy Bebop is the best anime series ever made. It is perfect. But it’s only 20 hours of perfect. One Piece, Pokemon or the Simpsons are alright, but hundreds of hours of content is huge. So cowboy Bebop doesn’t make the cut

    Simpsons
    One Piece
    Pokémon
    Case Closed
    Lupin the 3rd

    Are they the best? No

    But it’s 1700-1800 hours. And in a bunker there isn’t a lot to do.

    And there are longer anime series, but I don’t like them.

    1. One Piece. If only for the sheer number of episodes.
    2. Excel Saga. One of the first I ever watched, and probably explains a lot about me.
    3. Initial D. Speedy speed boy.
    4. Cowboy Bebop. A true classic.
    5. Ghost in the Shell: SAC. Can't have the movie without the TV show.
    6. Martian Successor Nadesico. I too am Gai Daigoji.

    Today's genre/category is: Film-Score (and Game-Score) Albums

    soundtrackmontage_article.jpg

    What six film-score (and game-score) albums do you choose for your communal doomsday bunker?

    Are you leaning towards it all being huge franchises like Star Wars & Lord of the Rings, or spread it out among a variety of smaller films? Will all six of your choices just be John Williams?

    I'm also going to open this one up to scores done for video games (if published as an album/cd).

    Lemme finish this off real quick.
    • Last Exile is probably the anime I most enjoy. It features somewhat steampunk-inspired sky couriers who get drawn into what turns out to be a conspiracy and conflict to determine the fate of the world. Anyway, let's bring it in.
    • Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a show I've started watching multiple times and enjoyed, but always tapped out before the end mostly as a result of its length and time commitment requirements. Which makes it a great candidate for filling the hours at the end of the world.
    • Cowboy Bebop isn't actually a huge favourite of mine, but I know people like it so I'll bring it as a crowd pleaser.
    • Ghost in the Shell S.A.C. Sure, I feel in some ways it undermines the excellent movie, but it's also fun and good?
    • On the one hand, Evangelion is probably still contains my favourite giant robot curb stomp action & design; on the other hand... everything else. But I hear the remake is better... Fuck it: Get in the fucking robot, Shinji. Rebuild of Evangelion
    • Lupin the Third I haven't watched, but I'm totally down with bringing something new I'm interested in.

    I'd put Avatar: The Last Airbender on the list, but to me that's western animation. Did I even do that list? I should go back and do that one.

    The Last of the Mohicans - I owned this score on cassette and cd. One of my favorites.
    Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon - my cd with this score lived in my car for a very long time. Beautiful.
    The Greatest Video Game Music - performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Just a great collection of some of the best video game music tracks performed very well.
    Road to Perdition - I'm sensing a pattern here: tragic scores are very much my thing.
    The Untouchables - although here it's Ennio Morricone's soaring theme that carries the score for me, particularly the end titles arrangement.

    And I'll round things out with a yet to be determined John Williams compilation album. It's impossible for me to choose just one of his scores, so something that covers as many of his best themes as possible is going to have to be the way to go.

    Queen of the Damned: a movie which is alright, but the soundtrack is dope. Forsaken is a song I still pull up and get down too. It’s soundtrack is so good we all owned a copy, and we just rented the movie.

    Braveheart: I like Braveheart the movie even though it is flawed and not accurate and Mel Gibson is a nut. But it’s not too 50 material. However I really like the soundtrack. Haunting rifts Scottish tones. Just a good soundtrack.

    O Brother, Where Art Thou?: excellent, I’m going to be surprised if this one isn’t on several top 6 lists

    Bastion: It’s a great game with an excellent soundtrack.

    A star is born: has a good soundtrack. Very mainstream, but still excellent.

    Hackers: Throwback, good song, sick beats. Silly movie but the soundtracks is good.

    Okay, okay. Fuck, there are so many good movie and game soundtracks. Right. Kill your darlings. I'm coming at this from the angle of soundtracks I would put on just to listen to, not necessarily soundtracks that are really effective within their film.

    Tron: Legacy Reconfigured, Daft Punk feat. various. I'll start with an easy one first. This is technically a remix album but it's just fantastic. Tron: Legacy's soundtrack is great on its own but the remixes here are just killer, absolute bangers wall to wall.

    Tenet, Ludwig Göransson. Tenet is a fun film that doesn't have much to say. Soundtrack's fucking killer though, I put it on while working regularly.

    Doom (2016), Mick Gordon. I mean, you gotta include this, right? BFG Division alone demands it. An album of just deeply chunky metal. Great for working, working out, and fighting radioactive monsters in the wasteland. Really gets the blood pumping as you rend and tear.

    Ori and the Blind Forest, Gareth Coker. I put this on while writing this post because I remembered what a fantastic score this is. Absolutely gorgeous on its own right and elevates an already beautiful game into something extremely powerful. A couple of the recurring motifs make me tear up pretty much every time I listen to this album because of how moving they are (granted, music's the most reliable way to make me cry by far).

    Blood Machines, Carpenter Brut. Okay this one is cheating a bit because it's essentially just a Carpenter Brut album (hell the movie itself is just an extended Carpenter Brut music video [ask me about my idea for a no-dialogue cut of this film some time, it would be so much better than the actual film]) but it's fuckin' gooooood y'all. If you like synthwave.

    Interstellar, Hans Zimmer. This soundtrack singlehandedly elevates an okay film (with some admittedly great performances) into a movie that can reliably make me cry. It also feels like one of the few times Hans Zimmer is really going outside of his comfort zone a bit, and it just really works so well. Incredibly strong choice to rely so heavily on an organ but boy it paid off.

    This was the hardest one by far to narrow down. Not mentioned but very much in contention were Halo, Dune (2021), Hollow Knight, The Nightmare Before Christmas or anything else by Danny Elfman, any given John Williams score, any given Darren Korb score, I really had to wrack my brains and eventually went with soundtracks that I put on to listen to as albums in their own right.

    Inscryption would definitely have made the cut but it's not yet been published as a standalone soundtrack. Would have gone in place of one of the last two.

    I don't have strong enough feelings about many games to post soundtracks but as a representative sample, I'd take the Rise of Iron soundtrack from Destiny 1.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PfrtX-foWUA

    Honorable mention to the final boss music from Garden of Salvation, which might slap the hardest of any single Destiny track.
