The Flood / Re: Solo thread
« on: May 26, 2018, 09:16:56 AM »
I don't like how they neutered Han Solo. He wasn't a macho male role model who initiates the plot but rather a one-sided comic relief character who was just along for the ride. I found every other character in the movie more interesting than him.

Well he kind of grew into that by the end. It wouldn't be very interesting if his character was the same as he was at the start of ANH, right? But I do agree he didn't feel like the protagonist.

I guess most of The Flood still hasn't seen Disney's Pixar's Marvel's Star Wars: Solo: A Star Wars Story, A Disney Production yet. Can anyone give me a verdict on whether or not to see it based on my opinion that The Last Jedi was a fucking dumpster fire?

Solo takes zero risks and is basically a Disneyfied fanfic, so you'd probably like it over TLJ.

The Flood / Re: Shows/Music/Movies/ebook recommendations
« on: May 25, 2018, 07:48:09 AM »
The Expanse is pretty good. I'd recommend both the books and show if you're into science fiction at all. It's a fairly hard (when compared to your typical hollywood scifi) take on a colonised system and a cold war between Earth, Mars and the populations of the Asteroid Belt. It has some weird stuff like stupidly efficient drives and no radiators but ships have to do deceleration burns, there's no lasers or plasma weapons and gravity is provided by centrifugal force or thrust of engines. It also does a really nice job of fleshing out the cultures of Mars and the Belt based on the conditions they live in, and makes the world feel very believable.

The first couple episodes of the show are a little slow to start off because they're mostly just worldbuilding stuff to get the viewers caught up with how everything works,so I'd say that if you're not interested by episode 4 then chances are you won't be interested in everything after (personally, I was hooked more or less based on how good the opening titles were because they just "felt" something unique), but otherwise I think it's the best space scifi we've had on TV since the early 2000s. The production value is really nice too, the CGI and sets look pretty great for the most part, and they only get better as it goes on.

I actually have The Expanse downloaded already. I watched one episode and thought it was a bit rough but I've heard nothing but good things so I'm sure it'll pick up.

It was surprisingly good not bad. I don't think it needed to exist, but I had a good time, and thought it was pretty exciting. Somehow, the truckload of references and callbacks didn't engulf the rest of the experience.

I'm leaving again this weekend and wanted to get any last minute recommendations for media before going. I'll buy books or movies, but I'd probably end up torrenting shows so avoid recommending those if you're opposed to piracy.

Back around December, bye.

He didn't kick her off; he only interrupted her when the crowd booed, then he let her do it again and the crowd was still a bunch of dumbfucks so he stopped it again.

So... Blame the crowd? Apparently the festival this was at is just a bunch of drunk underage teens so it's no surprise they were shitty.

Speaking from your own biases here. Some old cunt from 1940 probably could just as easily feel that "nigger" does come off the tongue easily, and being able to just say "nigger" instead of otherwise describing a person is incredibly convenient.
Whether or not "nigger" rolls off the tongue doesn't make it a word that's used for convenience or one of the main every day words in the English language. "Nigger" could be erased from the world and the English language would be fine, not the case for "he/she".

Maybe "nigger" used to be the acceptable way to refer to a black person, but it fell out of use by the insistence of black people that it be stopped. It didn't just happen naturally; the acceptability of the phrase had to be intentionally erased. I imagine we're seeing the same thing here, where maybe it's currently okay (but really not) to intentionally refer to an open transperson by a pronoun or name they don't prefer, and they're fighting against it so that in X number of years people will see it as as hateful of an intention as using the word "nigger".

by all means, keep recommending stuff though, unless you know i'll hate it

it's all stuff i'll have to watch at some point anyway

I think I've recommended every anime I've watched that I enjoyed. I even figured Gargantia was a long shot for you because of the fan service and slice of life-isms. I enjoyed how the story turned out, and thought it ended up being almost a satire of the Shonen/mecha tropes that the male protagonist (can't remember his name... 'L' something) seems to embody at the beginning. Could be wrong. It just caught me off guard as unusually high in animation and plot quality for anime.

And Verb, I really don't agree that the MCU's primary source of tension comes from character death. I think that's the superhero genre's biggest problem, and comic books' biggest source of tedium. In the MCU, tension comes from the sociological, psychological, and physical consequences, rather than survival.

Tony Stark goes from being a naive war-profiteer to a jaded, paranoid sufferer of PTSD, while losing the trust of just about everyone he relied on. Captain America begins as an almost brainwashed super-patriot to becoming an actual traitor who constantly fights his best friends (both of whom have been manipulated by the government he trusted).

Thor is a [privileged] literal god who constantly get shown how fucking dumb and shortsighted he is, ultimately losing his entire family, home, and species (or..whatever asgardians are).

The entire 10 years of MCU has been a gradual, believable descent into the chaos and madness that was SHIELD being overrun by Hydra, the disbanding of the Avengers, and their defeat by Thanos. And I don't think any of these character deaths would have worked in any of the other movies. It's weird to see you ridicule shows like TWD and GoT as overly-reliant on main character deaths to drive the plot, and then say that the MCU does and/or should do the same thing, rather than be glad that it actually doesn't.

Also it's neat to see you enjoy the movie.

CinemaSins isn't film criticism though, and they don't pretend they are

Occasionally they'll have something serious to say about a film, but that isn't the point of the videos
hence the quotation marks, but that doesn't stop people from treating his videos as genuine critiques

which i suppose isn't his fault, but regardless, it's just shit content through and through, so i don't think it's fair to throw people like adam into the same ball pit

Yeah, comparing CinemaSins to YMS is ridiculous... Also he (relatively) enjoyed Infinity War, so I don't know what's there to complain about.

Did you see RLM's parody of CinemaSins in a recent video? I think it was from A Quiet Place.

I feel like the Walking Dead and Game of Thrones mindset has really affected how people judge comic movies. Why do characters have to die for there to be stakes? It's not like the characters have remained static throughout the films.

Tbh I think the majority of the serious questions you asked are pretty easily answered


Spoiler
My biggest complaint is that wiping out half the population wouldn't really solve much...the human population doubles in less than 100 years, so unless Thanos plans to snap his fingers every century (apparently not possible after the first time he did it), then his plan is childishly stupid. Not as dumb as an attempt to seduce the literal embodiment of death, but I think it undermines his character quite a bit.
Spoiler
only if the ones culled were arbitrarily selected

which they very well may have been, but perhaps there was some method to it, like only culling the ones most likely to reproduce? or something like that

Spoiler
It was stated that he wanted to do it entirely at random on Titan, so imagine that was his universal plan

And yeah, he's 'mad', but he was never portrayed as insane or even illogical

As for the sequel, I'm not too familiar with Thanos in the comics but I'm hoping he's no longer the villain. It seems like his goal is complete and the stones lost some of their power. Maybe they'll introduce some rival or larger conflict...who knows. I even suspected Scarlet Witch of becoming the villain at the end of infinity war.

Does anyone else think Thor, Loki and Hulk fucked everything up in retrospect? I mean, if they hadn't killed Hela in Ragnarok and took the space stone off Asgard Thanos would have never accomplished anything. She would have literally turned that grapefruit inside out had he tried anything.
