i will probably never watch the nurse ratched show because why. why would anyone

that was instantly where my brain went when i read that tweet too. i am totally baffled by the idea that anyone could ever want that show.

imagine the meeting where a bunch of trust fund baby hollywood producers with room temperature iqs all agreed that NURSE RATCHED ORIGIN STORY???? was the best concept

and iirc they do all get out in one of the movies, which is, like, exactly why it’s irresponsible

in the first movie dickless shuts down the containment and they escaping ghosts create all the events that take place in the third act of that movie, but it could be argued that the ghosts were just pissed off at being locked up in the first place.

in the second movie it becomes apparent that psychic energy can directly affect reality, because all the new yorkers' aggregated bad moods manifest as a river of pink goo under the city. so the EPA was probably correct that storing the psychic energy of 1000 imprisoned ghosts in the basement of the firehouse was akin to storing toxic waste, at least on a spiritual level

it's really nice when they get the details right like that

the movie K-19: The Widowmaker is not very good overall, but the part where they go in to fix the reactor is the most accurate welding i've seen in a film. they actually use two different rigs to do the cutting and the welding! first they haul in an oxyacetylene rig with an actual cutting torch fitted and use it to remove the broken pipe. then they pull that out and go in with a stick welder to fit it back together, even properly scratch-starting the arc.

after 10000 films where no distinction is made between welding and cutting, and both are just a blue propane flame that shoots sparks everywhere like they're welding with a sparkler, it was quite wonderful

I feel like I've tried to do watch-throughs of it but once I get to the ones where they make "Movies" (that were p.clearly just three or four epis taped together) I get real :flaccid: real quick?

just watch up to the opera, which is a really nice and sweet ending for the series.

I like the recurring gag where we're reminded that robots are effectively immortal

"We thought you were dead!"
"Nah, they just shot us a bunch of times and buried us in the desert as a warning"

"Boy, I'm glad you got that beam off my head when you did. Another few hundred years and I'd be done for"

when the latest star trek came out a bunch of people i knew were like "ohhhhh what a WASTE of idris elba, putting him in dumb monster make up to play a star trek villain"

zeno's paradox works because a distance is infinitely divisible into smaller fractions without affecting its character. this "paradox" is invalid because at some point you are going to get down to one xeno and it can only be alive or dead. you can't half-kill it. sheesh

see also: movies about young scriptwriters/actors/filmmakers, who are smarter/better than everyone else but misunderstood, just trying to catch their big break in hollywood. gently caress off
