if i was going to pick one thing to be bothered about zombieland it would probably be the twinkies

like i seriously cant tell if it was product placement or if the people who made that movie really did seriously believe that twinkies are some kind of magic god nectar

picking that of all foods to fetishize is admittedly kind of funny in the context of the fat person mockery though

It's been years and years since I've seen it but I'd imagine the twinkie thing is just the old urban legend that they last forever.

Also to go back Call of Duty the best part of "No Russian" (the shoot up an airport level) is you're a cia agent working with russian terrorists and at the very loving end as you're leaving they shoot you knowing full well you were an american and out you in the media so america gets blamed for causing the worst terrorist attack in russian history.

Woody Harrelson's character specifically calls that out and says that his quest is more urgent because they do, in fact, expire.

wasn't the role originally like a kickass fighter pilot or something? and then murphy passed so he was written to be an everyman for ernie hudson? they should've let hudson play a fighter pilot

winston as an everyman is what makes him good though, he's the straight man

Anyone have the lowdown on the Joker outrage thing? My sniff test tells me its an astroturf thing to sell tickets through controversy but I cant muster enough care to investigate a superhero movie

pretty sure it's all just "joker is an incel meme, joker is a loser in the trailer, therefore,"

The Hunchback of Notre Dame could be a legit great movie if they'd just cut out the gargoyles. There's a fan cut of that on youtube and it's like a completely different movie without all the anachronistic comedy relief.

this sounds cool and i love weird edits, got a link?

i was really bummed how in the world war ii story the one guy in the platoon giving him poo poo did it because he hates flying people and not because he was racist

like they didnt need to use the n word but there were plenty of good euphemisms and nobody questioned his backstory of being a marine even though black people couldnt join back then

yeah that's like the Teen Titans episode on racism where some alien dude keeps calling Starfire some word and she confides in Cyborg that the word means "worthless". She asks him if he knows what it's like to be judged on your appearance he (a black dude) goes "of course I do....I'm a robot"

i'm positive most poo poo libs would 100% support a return to monarchy as long as the "right" person were in charge, regardless of how much they might say otherwise. all their wailing and gnashing of teeth over trump is just because he doesn't share their world view, not that he's actually a narcissistic solipsist in the dementia stage of syphilis

the myriad ways they venerate musk or jobs or any of the other scions of silicon valley is my proof

I was about to bring this up, I really appreciate that (pretty big plot spoiler) the rich family is super supportive of Marta, calls her part of the family, lets her know that they'll take care of her financially even after he dies, and the moment they find out she gets the inheritance instead of them they put aside their political differences and form a united front against her. With the person who offered the most vocal support being the one that betrays her the hardest

"super supportive, part of the family" but she drives a broken down hyundai and lives in a lovely apartment

edit: the other good part was they slow mo "come in here marta hang out with the family" clip that was shown over and over and then finally the context was "loving ILLEGAL MEXICANS MARTA COME IN HERE AND TELL ME I'M RIGHT ABOUT THE LAZY MEXICANS" and the fact that literally everyone said a different country for her origin including ecuador and brazil

I also think itís pretty telling that when choosing a preexisting setting to tell their story about an awakening albeit malformed ideological awareness of class disparity, they picked the one that luridly depicts the poor and mentally ill the same way Lovecraft did the... well, everyone.

That and making Bruce/Batmanís own origin story the product of a poverty induced riot, seeing as how heíd later going on to establish relative peace in the city with a fear-and-beatings campaign on the underclass.

Itís somethin all right.

I was a lot more forgiving when shows had like 26 episodic episodes a season

Now it's around 10 and serialized and if this poo poo isnt off on a good footing it really causes a poo poo cascade

This is the real problem. Not every episode of TNG has a good story (Crusher is being haunted by a vampire ghost or w/e comes to mind) but you can skip those. You can't skip a bad episode of Discovery because the bad storyline is the entire season.

sure but that's bullshit imo. also are we saying that all mining and trade is in the form of dilithium and latinum? why? what does the federation need to trade for? i keep hearing "this is our biggest source of dilithium" a lot so i think its just that the writers don't want to deal with how hard it is to come up with conflict in a post-scarcity world

like last night i was watching ds9 and kira was mad about some aliens running some volatile chemical to the cardassians, that they got from a mine. the cardassians have replicators, why do they need to trade for this chemical?

You gotta have something to fight over, it can't all be ideologies.
