This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Over on the movie movie site people get into movies that are very little known but didn't get heavy metal. Ill try to avoid the esoteric ones.

Ok, here's one I got. Since this isn't a movie page I'll give hints.

A 100° winter
with several folks slain
blame it on microwaves
and hope that it rains.

It's a British scifi horror movie from the 60's  that had a prominent British scifi horror actor.

Before I resorted to properly reading the hint I was looking into 100 Degrees Below Zero and trying to see if rain or microwaves somehow come into a plot involving volcanic winter or whatever.  So I was pretty damn far off. I knew for sure at that point I wasn't getting it without doing some digital research, so to speak. I don't know how if at all to do spoilers on this site, so anybody wanting to try to guess it the proper way, be forewarned.



Is it Night of the Big Heat? I really ought to look into the cinema classics a bit more, especially horror, though I've never really been able to get into that genre for some reason. You seem to know that area of artistic expression admittedly a fair bit better, but I appreciate the references and poems because it gives me stuff to look into.

Yes that is one of several titles it's known by. Good job.



Now to try one without clues...



Tho only wishing to knock out cancer's deadly teeth
the poor spineless scientists just gave humanity a horrible new danger.
Ravenous terrors craving not flesh but what lay beneath,
Mono limbed monsters that looked weird but made sounds far stranger.
Fuck the fascist right and the fascist left.

Figured out that it came from an attempted cure from cancer, and eventually after some fruitless searching with just this and the other poem clues you gave that weren't line 3, realized I'd actually have to figure out what that meant, lol. So, then I eventually went for blood as the answer, then after more fruitless searching realized that veins are oftentimes pretty close to the surface, meaning that what lay beneath was probably bone instead, which fits with the scientists being called spineless (I had been searching for cowardly researchers instead of the more literal term as well). Add in mono-limbed and weird sound making, and my computer's search engine eventually closed in on it. Potential spoiling guess ahead.




Island of Terror, another British classic, I am informed.


Also, have you made any progress with Pat's haiku? Even with the powers of the internet and a will to cheat, so to speak, I'm admittedly still stumped.

Yes, you got it. I'm Not trying to be unsolveable like some people on the movie site. That would frustrate too many people here.

I've no idea about pat's haiku, I was sort of thinking 'heathers' but no. I don't look them up if I don't get them.

Now then onto another one sans clue.

From the cold depths of space came huge orbs ocular,
bringing terror and death to earth of a kind most sinister.
They had a craving for human brain meat,
but could withstand no kitchen's heat.
Their end came is a way most spectacular.


Now try this one without google for a while, it's an. Old movie shown a lot.

I like the poem, and feel like it's probably gonna be super obvious once somebody solves it, but currently have no idea what it could be. Tried talking through some possibilities and brainstorming with some friends while gaming. Even phoned for help, so to speak, from some older family members who wound up calling me over unrelated stuff once we inevitably started chatting about the weather and the like. Was a proper flurry of incorporating it into social activities with minimal context, lol. Evidently I need more classic sci-fi fans in my circle of orbit, clearly.  ;D 

Oh dwellers in therpgsite.com, I call upon you, avenge me in the absence of Google's monopoly upon the contents of my mind and admittedly solicited guiding hand in my beliefs. Only you can solve this poetic riddle of cinema now.

 OK OK I guess this one is a little obscure if you're not a major B movie fan, so it's hint time.

It's a 50s movie with 2 titles, the most popular one contains the name of a body part.

I was able to Google it, but that's really obscure. It's a movie only people who are really into a particular era of B movies would have even heard of, much less remember enough to put together all the clues. Since this isn't that kind of site, it might be a good idea to stick to movies that the typical geek is familiar with.

Based on the poem, I’ll wager we should be looking for either brain or eye. Though I guess Pat will have beaten us to it via Google. Bested by my own tactic!

Ok the crawling eye was not a great choice.

BUT......

Here's one I wrote for this board  about a movie you should have seen and if you haven't you should ASAP.


The people of the trees suffered lives stressful, hopeless and bland
'till their world was taken into a mother's strong, capable hand.
Soon even those born impoverished, desperate, angry and lowly
could taste deeply the joy of taking everything a lot more slowly.
The bliss fell to a messy end when things stopped going as the matriarch planned.

No idea. Like 90% sure I haven't seen it. But also looking forward to when somebody guesses this so that I can look into it, because it sounds pretty cool/unique.  8)

You beat me here. I'll try my challenge even if English is not my first language.

Freudian nightmare, as in a dark mirror
Genders reversed, bones on the outside
Parasites infect flesh and machines
In the dim glow of lovecraftian stars.
...But the answer is not valid if you don't say also
why the first movie inspired mine.

Damn I wanna get this one, but it's a tougb onei may not have seen the movie. There are a lot I don't see.

But your writing was excellent I'm sure if I saw it I'd get it.

I know it's not alien but I keep thinking it. Bones on the outside implies an exoskeleton...

You also need to tie your answer to how Heavy Metal inspired me to choose my movie...
