Any good story is about a main character transformation. But somе of them are great. What would you recommend?
I'm sure it's required material for psychology students or something, but I think it is a good illustration on the effects of ego, which is a controversial subject for most people. Everything, even the weird cartoony bits, has relevant meaning behind it and I'd consider it more a work of art than most movies produced nowadays. If you have the right mindset, it can enlighten or reinforce positive changes in your psyche that will have a significant effect on your ability to enjoy life.
I'm trying to find a civil war movie with a battle scene in which a mounted officer fires a repeating black powder revolver, possibly an 1858 Remington. I recall the scene is in a wooded area, not a big open field fight.
I recall it was from an 80-90s comedy (possibly satire) western film. It had this infamous scene where the good guy was lying on the ground defeated but reveals a hidden revolver up his sleeve, shoots at the bad guy who freaking explodes, the scene then pauses to reveal a wall of text explaining the bad guy was instead arrested and lived his remaining life in prison or something.
The scene was quite popular and a lot of people shared the videos and gifs a while back, but I couldn't find them even with the description I wrote here. Thanks in advance.
This is a movie trailer of a cannibal movie. There's an American family having a picnic by the jungle, and their daughter goes off on her own and gets grabbed by a cannibal (South American). The man in the cowboy hat chases some of them with a revolver and shoots at them.
I saw the movie on VHS around 93’ 95’ ish. I remember them using wooden bullets. There was a specific scene where someone was talking about the wooden bullet tips. No automatic modern guns either i believe. So it was somewhat stylized as a western.
This is the only scene I can recall unfortunately. Not sure if it was a comedy or serious movie.
I usally just lurk around this sub and really love the content. Yesterdar I watched what is now my favorite movie. This is probably the first time that I watch a movie that shows the concept of the stoic philosophy so incredible well. Really recommend this movie and hope you give it a shot.
Also, if you guys have movie recommendations that depict the idea of stoicism please let me know!

I've been looking for either the title of the movie this is in, or a GIF of this scene. I cannot seem to find it, even with many applications of Google Fu.
I'm just curious about what everyone thinks about the film's version of Roland's revolvers. Like many, I always pictured him having something akin to either a Colt SAA or even a Schofield, obviously something chambered for .45 Colt. I was surprised to see them use something based on an older cap and ball revolver, but with a swing-out cylinder.
I have mixed feelings about it because I was real curious to see how they'd show Roland's reloading skills with something like an SAA, but it's interesting to see a character based on a wild west archetype using modern day swing-out revolvers. I also like the aesthetics overall, though my personal favorite leans towards break-top revolvers like the Schofield for some reason (maybe because of Trigun).
Hello, last week I published my first Android app in the Play Store. It is a movie trivia game called Movie Star Revolver.
I began the game three years ago, starting out as a Windows Visual Basic programming hobbyist with no Java or mobile experience. I thought a trivia game would be a good first project for me to learn the basics of Android/Game development and Java. I never expected it to turn into three years of work.
Some of the three years is accounted for by foolish tangents. For example, at one point I became aware of particle systems and decided to make my own. I spent months working on it, testing it on my i7 desktop PC, but never on an actual Android device as I went along. Then, thinking I had done great work, I deployed the app to my phone and tablet only to find everything moving in slow motion. Who would be so foolish to invest a few months in that and not think to test it out on an... keep reading on reddit ➡

Killing the ego?
I saw this on cable in the late 2000s. The only part I remember is a scene where a drunk man goes to his car. He grabs a revolver and goes into a building with some old 70s wooden walls. He walks into a room, and shoots some people off screen. It looked like a movie from the 90s or 80s. I saw this when I was younger and I've never forgotten it because it was so jarring to see at a young age, anybody have an idea?
One of Guy Ritchie's worst films.
Watched this movie about a decade ago. Sort of low budget/indie. One of the minor characters, an overweight maybe balding employee, every day, takes an empty revolver out of his desk drawer and clicks it against his head. He says that his psychiatrist told him to do that.
Wasn't a bad movie but it was quite complicated and I think it lost out a lot of Ritchies trademark crime banter and tried to be too deep. After a second watching though I could say it was alright. Definitely not his strongest. Your thoughts?
I'm looking for the title of a short film I watched in either September 2016 or December 2016 on a Virgin Atlantic flight. The flim was about a young boy with two heads, one smaller and unable to communicate verbally--but capable of independent thought and could communicate with the host boy. His father was dead, while his mother raised him inside of a large, multilevel house with all signs of the outside world blocked out. For some reason that I cannot remember, the kid's second head--I think called a Toto or Todo--starts screaming in his homeschooling room. The building shutters and falls apart, revealing that the mother's second head, her toto or todo, was fake. Kid explores the house, and eventually finds the outside world. He also shoots his second head at some point. Black and white, animated/maybe claymation, obviously a dark story, that was about 14 minutes long. English accents.
The movie is fascinating and unique with plenty of head games. I've asked /r/pyschology about similar materials and will post here if they find anything (and vis versa). Here's a netflix link it's on instant right now.
During the credits of the movie professional psychologist talk about how the ego works. That it projects itself and manifests the idea of an enemy thereby limiting you. After watching the movie these sound bites blew me away and have left me craving more in the area.
Edit: my similar post in r/psychology that has some great responses of both videos and articles.
And I see now there's a mixture of psychology and philosophy within this movie and views of ego. The philosophies seem to be tied to judao and christian thoughts called Kaballah.
It was very eye opening and helped me to understand more what he deals with. It's only a small bit of what he goes through, but I feel the more I understand the more I can help when he's going through it, even just being there with him and answering his questions, helping him come to a logical conclusion about everything.
Oh, I know you're still there... cause I can feel you dying. I can hear you tapping me... for a little nutrition. Now who's looking for a fix? It gets a little tight in here, do you? Well, you're not wrong... cause the walls are moving in. No food here. Not today, sunshine. My eyes are open and the restaurant's closed. Jog on. Slide off. Find someone else to fill your pipe. Someone, who won't see you coming... or know, when you're there.
For anyone who is stressing about this test (including me). I know as it is getting closer the anxiety is getting worse. We need to understand that its all in our fucking head. It's that voice in our head continously making us believe that we are scared. Unfortunately we have not been trained to ignore this voice, and we consider it our best friend. TUNE IT OUT. Remember that you control mcat's ass for 7 hours on thursday. To be honest, these past few days I have been scared. I think I'll do better if I postpone but then again the summer is ending a... keep reading on reddit ➡
The hazy details I remember is that it's a revenge/justice story where he's hunting down the killer of someone, and that revolver has some significance. I think it might actually have a single bullet meant for the killer or something.
The revolver Mel Gibson used in the movie Payback was gorgeous. It was referred to as a "roscoe" (sp?) but I could not determine what that meant. Can anyone please tell me what revolver he used? Thanks!
I like to think that I am somewhat intelligent on following plots and clues in films, but this one I just had zero idea. I don't know if I just didn't get it or what.
