The Flood / Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi
« on: December 16, 2017, 02:31:03 AM »
Spoiler
I haven't been this conflicted on a movie since Evangelion 3.0, that's really saying something.

There were parts in the movie that were absolutely good and made for a great story, but there were other parts that were the shittiest thing Disney could possibly throw out and really bogs it down. I don't really know where to start. The interaction between Kylo and Rey was flawless, really well executed, I feel Kylo's character has been mostly redeemed from his shitty whiny brat version in TFA. And their scenes were plenty to keep the movie going.

But then there's shit like Snoke dying like a fucking nobody, Space Casino monster chase, Captain three minutes of screen time getting even LESS screen time and still treated like she's somehow fucking important. It's really fucking noticeable when half the movie's run time is devoted to one situation the rebels are in. Every Star Wars movie has been a series of smaller adventures that encompass the bigger picture, but instead we get this bland huge problem in which most of the cast revolves around; I started to groan every time it cut away from Rey/Luke/Kylo because I legitimately have zero fucking interest in Fin and that literal who that joined the main cast of the film.

TFA even got that right. We go from escaping Jakku, to running into Han and Chewie, to trying to find the Resistance, to infiltrating Starkiller Base, to finding Luke. All situation they need to resolve but none of them overstayed their welcome like the cruiser chase plot did in this movie.

The movie is just so jarring, and I think the worst thing is that I can tell they were trying to do something different and unexpected (probably because TFA got a lot of shit for being too much like ANH) but they didn't want to fully commit so they half-assed it and it came out noticeably impacted by it. All of the different moments where they could have committed to something that pulls the rug out from under you but didn't are very obvious and I would've applauded them had they fully gone through with each and everyone but they don't, they copped out every time. Rey venturing to the dark side, KILLING fucking Leia, Rey going with Kylo's plan, killing Finn (that would've made the movie an instant 10/10), Kylo turning back to Ben, they could've done any of these things but chose not too. I hope they're lack of action on these was more caused by spending too much fucking time with the damn cruiser chase.

It's not as bad as Rogue One

Rogue One's only flaws were the overdone fan service and the disgustingly horrible casting choices. It still felt like a Star Wars movie whereas this only felt like Star Wars half the time.

this film did so many 180°s that by the end I was just imagining what a conventional storyteller wouldn't do and then it happened

just because it isn't mainstream doesn't mean it isn't predictable, Disney

also you're fired for criticizing Disney

I liked Rouge One. I think the prequels are pretty trash. CGI was laughable, acting was bad. Especially Annakin. IMO, TFA was the best Star Wars behind Empire Strikes Back. Now a lot of critics are saying TLJ is the best, even better than Empire. Something has people salty with this movie. Really divisive so far.
It pushes the sequel era more into being its own thing than being held down by the OT, with a lot of new, weird things. I love the direction they took with this film but for others I can see the change being quite jarring, or not what they wanted.

dude tlj was just empire backwards with a little roj sprinkled in the middle

I dont understand why its only white people that are like this
Targeted Jewish propaganda
Or it also whites' higher susceptibility to compassion?
watch Lawrence of Arabia and you'll understand

a single white man can turn the third world on its head

when looking at whites, we must ask the question, 'should any living being really be that powerful?'

the white man must look at other races as his livestock, and despite what the jews would have you think we have been good shepherds for millenia

whites understand this and strive to use their inherent power responsibly, but we also know that there comes a day when a sheep must be butchered

Verb's easily

Whoever overuses it the most has the least impact
That's not necessarily true.

I think verb is right that it's Azumarill, because when he says it I feel literally nothing.

At least when verb says it, I'm filled with reassurance that I am right and morally just because he is in disagreement with me.

Lets face it, people who can bend all four elements are absolute filth. They're either extremly cold, ancient, bald as SHIT, or just all round assclowns. This site would be better off without this inheret menace and we all know this to be true. First, we'll start off with whoever has the brown haired avatar slut as their profule pic because something they posted rubbed me the wrong way oncs.

Sleepwalk pissing. It's pretty common actually, you think you're walking to the bathroom but you don't get that far.
I actually have done this.

I woke up once wearing different clothes from when I fell asleep and had soiled them.

It was very embarrassing, and I have never told anyone about it.

As much as I sleepwalk, I'm glad it has only happened the once.

Why are you going to Baghdad?

Yours is perfectly reasonable question, and I believe the answer is that Gatsby has family in the area. Don't quote me on that, though.

The Flood / just made my first latte
« on: December 09, 2017, 10:08:25 AM »
This morning I purchased an Aeropress this morning and rushed home to make my first latte.

For ten dollars more, I could've bought an espresso machine, but I've been looking to step up my coffee game and an Aeropress was the obvious next step in general.

I frothed the milk in a 16 ounce glass bottle and microwaved it to the temperature I think tastes best.
I know steaming it the preferred method, but I didn't end up buying that espresso maker, so no steam.

It's one of the better lattes I've had, but nowhere near as good as the ones my sister makes for a living.
By far, superior to anything that could be purchased at Starbucks, unless the barista on duty seriously needed to move up and out to a finer establishment.

So as a person who is afraid of anime, women and literature, the concept of this game is spooky enough to give you a mild heartattack upon first learning of it`s existence? Man, but isn't oss your boyfriend? Just play game for oss. Just for oss. Just oss.

no you'll be fine

you won't be charged if you got away

a friend of mine was busted at a store I had lifted from multiple times before while we were together, and they knew me and said they knew I stole from them, but never pressed charges against me because he was the only one the had caught that time
