Im not familiar with their work outside the matrix movies, of which I only really felt the first one was a good film. What are some of their other projects?

Yeah the only great matrix film is the original. Speed Racer has very mixed opinions but it's my favorite Wachowski film, I think it is absolutely worth watching even if you end up not liking it, and then there's the 3 hour Cloud Atlas, a movie that is really great (and has incredible make-up/costuming!), but maybe tries to take a little too much from the book to the screen.

they worked really closely with mitchell though (he even made a brief cameo), and he gave the film his blessing.

the wachowskis are at their best when they have an actual author writing most of their dialogue.

uranus posted:

As a movie it has its flaws that can only really be addressed by adding more screentime, and its treatment of racebending could have been handled better (e.g. in the book there's an actual comment on how people in Nea So Copros/Neo-Seoul have so much plastic surgery their eyes and faces look uncanny-valley, they could have had that line in the movie to explain away some of the bad yellowface).

But it is unironically and completely sincerely my favorite film. I cried when I first watched it and I watch it again every few months. It's so absolutely gorgeous. The book made me cry too, and the film captures a lot of what's so wonderful about the text.

the trailer is bonkers amazing. I'm gonna rewatch it right now, it's just perfectly constructed. Gives me shivers.

In the terms of Mitchell adaptations though I would seriously honestly and without hesitation put lots of money into a kickstarter for a film version of The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, which is an absolutely perfect piece of historical fiction and a beautiful book to boot.

Mitchell is my favorite author. He has a book coming out this year (even though he had a novel last fall!! it's bananas!!) and I preordered it without hesitation.

Stop stop stop stop stop I know so many people who started Bone Clocks as their foray into the Mitchellverse and it's just not a good idea, not the least of which because it's a weak novel. You should at the very least read Autumns before Bone Clocks, if only because one of the main character's from Autumns is an ancestor to a main character in Bone Clocks, and talks about Autumns from their ancestor's perspective, which is super super neat.

I'm sincerely sorry that I worded my post in such a way as to even possibly be interpreted as a serious accusation of you actually being a pedophile. Instead, I meant it to convey my disgust at you defending drawn depictions of children cartoon characters engaging in sexual actions with each other, as well as imply the possibility you had an appreciation for such things you were defending. I assumed this would not offend you given your position.

I hope this resolves the issue.

You're just walking around a house, gathering in the story as you go. So if you like the story yes it's good, but I wouldn't call it a 'fun' game, no.

Gone Home doesn't have a message, unless you think that "gay people exist" is a message.

It's a fantastically atmospheric game in which an empty house and the artifacts it contains tell a story about the people who live there. It's basically the Bioshock method of storytelling transplanted to a non-fantastic setting and without all the tedious shooting.
