I've given a number of movies a 10 on my IMDb account:

2. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
3. Children of Men
4. City of God
5. Inglourious Basterds

Streaming services have resulted in my watching more TV series than movies in recent years so I haven't added to this list as much recently but I do feel the quality of recent movies has dropped off somewhat.

The United Socialist Republics of Gloriosya

Hello inhabitants of Forest, Portugal extends an invitation to all of you to participate in one of our member's Ibarona new RP: the League of Nations. This would be an alternate kind of EU, composed by our accounts' nations and for the account you choose to play with you'll be awarded X members for our parliament, which you can distribute through your national parties using whichever "democratic" methods you see fit.

There would be two major factions, though, the League-o-ceptics and the Beleaguers, I think you get the meaning.

The parliament would vote on regular laws and whatever measures that don't affect the structures of the League. Measures that alter those structures by creating or eliminating League institutions would have to be voted in a Council of States, in which country has 1 vote and only a simple majority is needed, like in measures voted by the parliament.

What are you waiting for?! Get in and submit your country's place in the League:

https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeAsEvaAGl8L7lRTMU93YxxPVVDRRcY1NUbOb19pGhgfE555Q/viewform

(you have to fill this form for every different party you wanna send, do I would advise against creating 20 different ones)

If you fill this form send me a telegram just saying that so I can contact you later with an invitation to a NS region, discord or whatever we decide on using.
Thank you for your attention!

I was hoping someone would mention Amélie!
I suppose I should answer my own question too. I don't have a favorite, but I really love Fantastic Mr. Fox and Suspiria (2019)
One of my favorite scenes from the first -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NESFQVqpnb0 (i'm not linking my favorites from Suspiria because 1) they're quite gruesome and 2) they're near the end and spoiler-filled, but the Volk dance scene is amazing with the right headphones)

The Greater Blonde Coast of Myordas

I have a question for y'all?
How many TV stations do you have in your country, what shows do you show in your country and do you have any iconic TV shows being franchised or very famous TV shows?

Myordas have 6 TV stations all owned by government. All information is found in my Factbook about TV stations. They mostly show local shows nationwide (mostly current affairs and documentaries) but Myordas have shown shows from other countries mostly Filipino telenovela or Armenian Soap Opera and Sitcoms on one slot of Myordan Primetime (around 18:00 - 22:30) dubbed from their original language to Myordan language.

Myordan dramopera (drama opera) is a genre of drama show of Myordas, dramopera is similar to an epic, it contains less violence, more comedy and a complex set of characters (mostly around 50 to a hundred), it can end in either a tragedy (mostly by killing a character in a funny way if a man or a beautiful way if it is a woman) or (in 60% chance) a happy one (mostly by making character's dreams come true), the shows endings are based by audience voting either on phones, polls or any medium.

The most iconic show in Myordas is not a dramopera but a show about fishes. It's called "Fishes of Myordas" it is aired since 1971 which is hosted by Romeloy Asamety at age of 25 during that time. Romelo stopped showing in the show in 2002 due to old age and health. Now his daughter named Ganar (aged 19 during that time) became the host since then. The show is about different fish species, their profiles, how to keep them and where to buy them. Seems simple but the real reason for the shows popularity is the expeditions they made, finding fish on their soil and analysing them and keeping them. Also the aquarium/pond making segment is fire. Showing the latest technology on fish keeping and good design and ideas for your aquarium or pond. (Sponsorships included)

Have you seen the original Suspiria (1977)? Having seen both, I prefer it - though I'll grant you that the choreography and score of the 2019 version definitely adds to the surrealism underpinning the whole film. If you don't watch the 1977 version, at least appreciate the music [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqO9t5bqTck] - one of the (if not the) best horror film soundtracks out there, in my view. Perfectly captures the neon-14th century folk tale aesthetic that makes the film so iconic.

The Republic of New Ladavia

In New, Ladavia are as many TV stations that will fit into the broadcasting space of frequency designated by the government. There are a few regulations, namely in the disclosure of all sponsors and affiliates with the program. (This is communicated through a message at the start of the show similar to the one about described video) The other main regulation is the length of time that can be devoted to adverts. There is only one "news" channel, but it is publicly funded and does not run adverts (ie: the BBC)) All other opinion channels must be portrayed as opinion channels, with these shows regularly being audited to maintain the proper guidelines about this.

I haven’t yet developed TV stations for Middle Barael, however I have thought up the main News Channels on TV or Radio

MBBC (Middle Barael Broadcasting Corporation) — Pretty unbiased, reports a lot on world news, similar to BBC or CBC

MBNN (Middle Barael News Network) — Biased towards the Left, reports mostly on politics, similar to CNN or Politico

MBBS (Middle Barael Broadcasting Station) — Not too biased, deals more with Human Interest and Local News stories, similar to ABC, NBC, or CBS

MBPTV (Middle Barael Public Television) — Biased towards the Left, reports on all types of stories, widely regarded as being “the news channel for aging hippies”, similar to NPR

Concolor News — Biased towards the Right, reports on all types of stories, similar to Fox News or Sun News but not as extreme

And it’s no coincidence that their names seem so similar to the RL channels that they are similar to; IC, the names were actually chosen on purpose to be similar to their US/UK counterparts, to increase name recognition

The World Wildlife Fund runs 12 different TV channels. Each channel is run by different international NGO's, GO's, and eco-friendly corporations. The shows on these channels primarily focus on clean tech promotions, conversational news, and local stories featuring sustainability. One famous franchise from our homeland is called, "The Meatrix". It's essentially an animal rights parody franchise of "The Matrix".

NoE does not have very developed television networks, as most people prefer to experience the country itself as it has stunning natural beauty. However there are a few news channels and nature channels.

News

NOEBC-The Nation of Ecologists Broadcasting Corporation is the national news channel for NoE and is on daily and talks about current events. It is funded by the Ministry of Communications and Technology.

EN-Eco News is a national news channel that talks about events related to ecosystems and the environment worldwide. It is on 3 times a week (Monday, Wednesday and Sunday).

UN-Unionist News is the official news channel of the Party for Freedom and Democracy, a far-right anti-environmentalist and Brazilian Unionist party . It is on only once a week due to limited views, however it is on more frequently in the rural east of the country, where most of the unionist subset live. It has come under fire recently by the government as promoting anti-government and violent themes, and is under strict watch from the Ministry of Communications and Technology.

Official Post from the Ministry of Culture

What a nail-biting finish to the rollercoaster ride that's been the Forest Flag Contest 2021!

I'd like to offer my heartfelt congratulations to Mount Seymour, whose refined design has shown that tradition with an interesting twist is a winning combination. Their updated version of our regional flag is both familiar and novel, providing us with a fitting symbol for this new and exciting era for Forest. It succinctly captures what Forest stands for; our proud and celebrated history, but also the new journeys and new friends ahead of us. I can't think of a better way of turning over this new leaf for our region than by crowning their design our new regional flag - so, without further ado, I'm formally requesting that Chan Island change our regional flag to the winning design at his earliest convenience.

Of course, it would be remiss of me not to mention all of the Flag Contest entries. The creativity and effort put in by Arklanda, Daarwyrth, Einswenn, Mount Seymour, Roless and Verdant Haven is absolutely staggering and really demonstrates the talent we have on offer as a region. The discussion that their designs generated on the RMB has also blown me away and I've thoroughly enjoyed learning about the symbolism behind their creations alongside the rest of the Forest community. I'd like to personally thank each of them for getting involved and the wider community for engaging with this event to the extent you all have.

I'll round this official post off by reminding everyone that my telegram box is always open for questions and suggestions, so please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any ideas you think we can turn into regional events or initiatives. Be the regional activity you want to see!

Oh, and watch this space - there's plenty more to come from the Ministry of Culture this summer!

Best wishes,
Terrabod
Culture Minister
