The movie is apparently fine, but he felt the need to take the entire review fake laughing at anyone under 25 because of his superior taste. He might not want to admit it, since he didn't like Ready Player One, but he is exactly the kind of self obsessed rear end in a top hat that Ernest Cline was writing for.

Do people under 25 not know what Rampage is? I remember playing the N64 game a lot as a kid.

ACCUSATION Holly Brown makes numerous accusations throughout the document.

FACT Holly Brown is a former employee and shareholder who was allowed to resign. Unfortunately her accusations are not true and are vindictive in nature.

This is my favorite one.

I don't think that people understand that even if you are close to a person you don't always know if someone is an abuser.

Honestly, even if you do know about it, it can be incredibly difficult to speak up about it.

At some point CA is just going to fold because of all this, right? Like, screw the morality and ethical terribleness for a minute, a site like this simply can't support itself with like 4 (or whatever) contributors, right?

I haven't watched it, because simply existing this week is giving me stress hives, but I'm like... 90% sure I have never interacted with this person. I don't remember anyone describing him as "alt-right" because like... I didn't know him? Didn't talk to him? He seems to have a hate boner for me that seems deeply personal, but I don't recall ever saying anything about him, let alone interacting with him. I know nothing about this person other than he has me blocked on Twitter for some reason, and tweets about me sometimes and our mutuals respond to him.

It is of course possible our paths crossed in a stream or something but I legitimately do not recall such things ever happening. Also, "cliques." Yeah, it's called having friends.

If I remember right, the claim was that somebody in your friend group told him that or something?

Seems kinda strange to bring up something that was, like, five or so years ago and seems really minor.

I didn't realize the conspiracy about Dan being a pedo was that he somehow operated a sting operation on 8chan and created the pedo boards himself.

I don't really have any actual suggestions for mod, since this is the only thread I read in this section.

Edit - Anyway, that Count Jackula video just seems like it's trying to jump on the bandwagon, but all of his complaints are just minor stuff like "This guy disagreed with me" or "Nash was kinda rude to me at a party"

I hope the Channel Awesome controversy gets turned into a professional documentary that goes on to win Oscars and then gets turned into a biopic about Doug Walker.

A couple friends of mine just showed me Stines Gate last night. We got about three episodes in and MAN I wished the whole "Time Travel is real" aspect was ripped out. Because then this would be a great slice of life show/Japanese version of Crying of Lot 49 but with a wannabe Rick Sanchez.

Well I woke up and saw 200 new posts, I'm "glad" it's just the usual arguing and not some terrible stuff being unveiled.

You mean her oddly captivating reboot pitch and the pony washing video's or something else?

I'm pretty sure her big claim to fame is a series called Friendship is Witchcraft which is basically a bunch of non-jokes. If the concept doesn't turn you off, then it's worth checking out if you like her sense of humor a lot

Thor: Ragnarok is, if you want to get intensely nitpicky, not a terribly great "superhero" movie. But it is a drat well enjoyable film and one of the most fun experiences I've had in theaters in a long time. Marvel started to figure out in Phase Two that if they move away from blanket "superhero" movies, they can do a lot better than if they all fall into the same genre.

Iron Man 3 is a buddy cop movie in the style of Shane Black's other greats like Lethal Weapon and Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Winter Soldier is a spy thriller, Guardians of the Galaxy is a slapstick sci-fi adventure comedy (as is Ragnarok). Playing hard into the heroes' "shticks" has worked out really well for Marvel.

Ragnarok is great because it's just a straight up comedy about superheroes.
