    Separating Genders

    This hardly seems one sided.

    Separating Genders

    Alright, can the both of you knock it off or calm down?

    itt: movie/film discussion (spoilers lol)

    Letters from Iwo Jima (2006) 4/10 Letters is only interesting from a production standpoint. It's a remarkably authentic film about Japanese soldiers during WWII directed by a prominent conservative director. I definitely was much more interested in seeing it than its companion piece, Flags of...

    Serious Should we celebrate Columbus day?

    In all the times I've interacted with ButteredToast you've done little more than talk about what a history buff you are So how do you link that report with a straight face and cherry pick it away from the fact that the FBI sent King a letter telling him to kill himself? A letter that is in the...

    Mandy (2018) 7/10 Nicolas Cage's most critically acclaimed movie in a very long time, probably since Leaving Las Vegas even. And it's a low bar to say that it's one of his better films, but it's not his best. This movie is three things: artsy-fartsy cinematography, revenge plot, and Nic Cage...

    Serious Should we celebrate Columbus day?

    Guys when hailfail says that's not the minimum requirement (minimum means least) for being a bad person, it means that negative accounts of Columbus may be exaggerated, but he still encountered free indigenous people and immediately was like, sweet, let's enslave them. This was a practice that...

    Serious Political and economic discussion thread

    Many have speculated that it's this exact same sort of arrogance that kept Democrats home in 2016 instead of voting for a "sure-fire" victory.

    Serious Political and economic discussion thread

    Today I left one job at lunch, went next door, and got hired as an engineer. I have no engineering experience or education. But white privilege doesn't exist.

    Anime Thread MK3 - Beware Spoilers

    Natsume's Book of Friends is startlingly middle of the road for a show with five entries in the top 100. It's not bad or good. I enjoyed some episodes, but I'd rather be watching Mushishi. I'm loathe to say it, but Fate/Prisma Illya is getting better. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who...

    I know Punchline was pretty flawed, but I feel like watching it again for some reason.

    Yeah that's the plot. But what does it say about the human condition? How can I apply it to my non-Ozarks life? This is supposed to be the high-art genre of the movie industry, I don't see a whole lot of ambition here. It's pretty well made and acted, except for a significant number of throwaway...

    One Piece (spoilers!)

    It doesn't have as good pacing as Water 7 (or even Dressrosa), but I think early Whole Cake was just as slow.

    To what extent does risk have inherent value?

    It's a 50/50 chance to get something I can sell on ebay either way, but if I don't get the stamp, at least I get the gloves with option B. I don't really give a shit about the gloves either way. I have almost never worn gloves due to it being cold.

    I most certainly would not consider myself to be cautiously optimistic about Mary Poppins Returns.

    Racing With the Moon (1984) 4/10 It's a "find the point" movie. Is it a romance? Is it a coming of age story? Well, being that it's about two men who are soon to join the military, isn't that when a lot guys come of age? Sean Penn is too good of an actor for the shit performance he gives here...
