Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality)

Many people are too poor to just move. That's a grotesquely simplistic and frankly inane suggestion to make.

Re: Net Neutrality Vote on Dec 13th! (#SaveNetNeutrality)

Your whole argument is based on the assumption of consumers having power when our political and economic system constantly consolidates power, and you talk about cities failing as if they aren't full of human beings living in them.

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

These movies are very navel gazy, which is weirdly fitting. TLJ is on some levels a message to both George Lucas and the fans.

SPOILER: Show
Hence the message that the Force doesn't belong to the Jedi, the Jedi belong to the Force.

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

One of Marvel's assets is they have a showrunner who doesn't direct the movies. What they need is a conductor. Someone who plays the orchestra. This is the mistake that the DCCU made and to a lesser extent Star Wars is making. Hollywood is dominated by visual stylists but if you're telling stories t...

Re: Star Wars Episode II - A New Thread

Saw it today. Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley carry this movie. Everyone is great but they're standouts, and every scene they share is gold. It's amazing they perform so well acting beside the established actors that are passing them the torch. What I liked about this movie is that it takes the events ...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

This is why certain filmmakers, like Godfrey Reggio, look for rich people with "money to burn." Backers might see a return on investment... years later, but shouldn't be of the mind to care about that. They should just spend the money to see "good art." A major film studio that ...

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

Also I expect them to license stuff and make their own shows/movies for their new streaming service, which this is all about. It’s not just gobbling up IPs. Disney doesn’t actually need the X-Men, and Doctor Doom isn’t worth that much money.

Re: DISNEY buys FOX

To be fair, it is more plausible. There were rights issues before. Does an unaltered version still exist?

Mari is the embodiment of chaos, the holy loins of creation. She doesn't need your defense. She exists by her own force of existence. She is so powerful that in a world she does not inhabit, we must imagine her. Behold her tits ye mighty and despair.

No. They'll all pay the fee and they have enough users that they can threaten the ISPs with them.

Re: Last Movie You Watched

I haven't seen it yet- it's hard to find a showing around here; I have to go Thursday night and catch it before it's bumped out so literally every screen at the only multiplex where it's showing can play The Last Jedi, which I can't in turn see until late Friday because all of those shows are sold o...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

I will say the same thing about He-Man I keep saying about Transformers. If the movie isn't absurd it would be an insult to the source material. The more recent He-Man revival series was pretty good but the original He-Man cartoon is aggressively terrible on a level that makes Generation One transfo...
