Are you loving kidding

There's only one giant screen in the car, there is no way to ensure that only a passenger is playing, and because it's big and central it will always be a distraction

why not just hook it up to Netflix while you're at it, Lonny

let him do it

I assume they skipped the part where zer0c00l or whoever has to recite the entirety of Monty python and the holy grail for the movie, so it is automatically worse

yeah, i've seen it quoted.

the podcast also mentioned a part where it is literally just a list of nerd things that came out by year.

but, at risk of springing a trap: the rp1 movie is not good, but it is *vastly* better than the book.

[A]sk me about OS/2 WARP


rp1 would have been vastly more tolerable if it was written by somebody who was not a hack, somebody who could take the tropes and concepts that cline literally xeroxed into his manuscript and riffed / edited / refactored them

like, here

quote:

Say Anything...: Art3mis also mentions that the movie was playing on the weekend that Halliday and Karen went on their single date. Parzival is seen holding the boombox from the film, causing it to play music during the battle.

it's...it's just the scene from Say Anything. There's no introspection, no interpretation. it's just a loving cut and paste
