RT doesn't even aggregate review scores, or at least the "tomatometer" doesn't
the tomatometer is a percentage of how many reviewers gave it a positive review
that means 1000 people could all have given the film a 6/10, and it would display as 100%
That's still aggregation, but with a hell of a bell curve
The point that is that those sites can suck a dick

>86% on RT and dropping
>68 on Metacritic
OH NO NO NO NO
Aggregating review scores is retarded, tho

AR-15-style weapons are used about as frequently in mass shootings as other weapons, and are only used in a small minority of other gun-related homicides. Focusing on one specific platform is useless.

Tbh I disagree that all marvel films are mindless popcorn flicks, but I don't care enough about the genre to defend it very far. It seems pretty apparent that franchises like Deadpool, GotG, and Captain America have more for the audience than big action setpieces.

Dark Souls Switch is just DSFix on a console, and that's fine. Maybe it would've been cool if From had polished a cut boss, but I think it'll be neat to be able to experience the game again at launch, when the online interactions are at their best.

And why are anime voice actors so fucking bad at their job?

I flew my wife out to Korea for a port call, so...6,000 miles?

Looks good. I was never able to get into them as a kid, kind of like Ratchet and Clank, so I'm glad there's a remaster coming out.

The government does not have the right to deprive ANYONE of life.
Do you believe police should not be allowed to defend themselves if they fear for their own lives or the lives of others?

There's too much Olaf in it, but 4 episodes in it's really good.

Sadly Luckily, this will likely be the only appearance of anything Halo making it to the silver screen.

I really want to understand why one of the greatest directors in film history decided to do a movie based on a middling litRPG novel.

All I'm saying fam, is that if I ain't threatening the livelihood of that cop and he pulls a firearm on me, I should 100% be within my rights to draw my own firearm and pre-emptively kill that cop before he illegally kills me.
You are, but your life is 100% fucked afterwards.
« on: March 27, 2018, 10:02:28 PM »
You can only kill a person that is directly threatening the safety and lives of others.
I think it's reasonable to say that for every instance of wrongful killing by a cop, apart from instances of intentional abuse of power, the cops don't intend to simply murder a citizen and act because they feel the individual is a mortal danger to themselves or others.

The opening scene is nothing short of pure virginal kinography

The idea that you live on in people's memories is nice and sentimental, but you're also dead, so it's not like you can give a shit about that

wow wtf guys
« on: March 16, 2018, 04:09:23 PM »
zero jump scares
The croc pulling that chick into the shack though.
That wasn't a jumpscare though
No loud noise or musical cue, no quick cut...it's just a sudden action

The amount of ads I saw for it pretty much made me already despise the film lol
The ads are garbage and ruin the premise. There's also almost no music and zero jump scares, despite what the trailers show.

at least two heroes need to die in order for this movie to be worthwhile
One running theory is that Thanos gets the stones and effectively kills off half the cast, allowing them to reboot characters and introduce others, giving some of the earlier actors like RDJ and Chris Evans a way to bow out of the franchise

What the fuck even is this movie? Does it have a plot?

The San Antonio Riverwalk is great, and if you're into shooting you can basically do it anywhere off the road.

I've heard it's a bit long winded and pretentious, plus I wasn't all that impressed with Ex Machina, so I'll probably give it a miss.
I normally like pretentious arthouse shit, but this movie definitely is neither. The ending isn't a huge action scene where the Strong Woman kills the evil alien monster, and it certainly doesn't tell you exactly what happened or what the movie meant, but it doesn't feel apart from mainstream. Something like Alien: Covenant is what I would describe as 'long winded and pretentious'.

Great film, and entirely female-led. A touch of body horror, but don't let that turn you off if you're not into that. It's one of the more genuinely unique sci-fi premises to come out in a long time, and I look forward to reading the original novel. Some of the acting was less than stellar, but the movie does a great job of presenting believable characters in an unthinkable situation. I think numerical ratings are reductionist, so I'll just say if you're at all a fan of sci-fi thrillers or horror like Alien, Event Horizon, Dead Space, or even Under the Skin, definitely check it out. Don't watch trailers.

Shape of Water was a boring amalgamation of other GDT films. The story (and main character) of Pan's Labyrinth with Abe from Hellboy.

Yep, I looked up some stat and upgrade mechanics, and on my subsequent playthroughs I usually check guides as I go for specific items I didn't find originally. With shit like illusory walls and timed events (like, do x before doing y to get z) I think it really enhances your experience, and Demon's Souls world tendencies, it's basically mandatory.
