Just FYI: the spoiler tags do not work if you are using the Default forum theme. (blue/white)

Edit: nevermind, not true. I had to allow a script, which is up to the user to allow/not allow if they use such browser tools.

EditEdit: if you're using a scriptblocker tool, it's the amazonaws one you have to allow, or you won't be spoiler-protected.

And now on to more about the cinema, motion picture, nikelodeon world...

I tried to post in the previous thread, but the new forum had logged me out and wouldn't recognize my credentials. So I accidentally posted as a Guest and got moderated 😛

My new password is 0p3r@1!0n 7@13x 1ur173 obviously, so now I can post again.

 

But now I don't want to say clever things about Avengers anymore.

Just that LadyCrimson needn't watch it. She has played enough JRPGs to know how the plot goes ;)

Unobtrusively informing you about my new ebook (which you should feel free to read and shower with praise).

Saw it yesterday. Spent 40 dollars on food and drink. That place had good bar burgers and fries, though.

The Three Caballeros (1944).

 Really weird, bizarre, and kind of off-putting movie that still had a lot of interesting stuff. Some of it seemed kind of acid-induced.

The "Love is a Drug" scene:

Never believe that anti-Semites are completely unaware of the absurdity of their replies. They know that their remarks are frivolous, open to challenge. But they are amusing themselves, for it is their adversary who is obliged to use words responsibly, since he believes in words. They even like to play with discourse for, by giving ridiculous reasons, they discredit the seriousness of their interlocutors. They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past.

I did too. The venue was just outside work so that was pretty comfortable, and had a pretty nice Pringles-coke combo which completely violates the Kermode Code of Conduct but still made me quite giddy. Screen was half-full, oddly enough, but luckily not too noisy (which was for the better since the audio seemed a bit on the low end). It was somewhat annoying that the theatre doesn't number its seats, which should by now be a standard across all theatre chains. The service otherwise was good, the room was pretty clean and the chairs rather comfortable. The hallway leading into the screen was curiously long and winding, and was reminiscent of a precolombine shrine in its almost womblike structure.

HA! Good Fun!

Just came back from Endgame. Loved it, despite some of it making no sense at all.

I can't believe Hulk and Thanos did a fusion dance and became Thulkos.

Also, can't wait for the broflakes to get pissy over that one scene. You know the one.

I wonder who gets there first. There are scenes to get angry over for everyone.

I guess there'll be some outrage over Black Widow sacrificing herself for an angry white male, even though it makes perfect sense for the character to do just that.

Sums up my feelings pretty well. I was pleasantly surprised by Infinity War, now I'm a bit disappointed by Endgame, and at the risk of making this weird, Volo is actually partially right for a change. Everything happens in exactly the way it has to, and while I don't agree that the film was boring, it sure felt longer than it was.

 

 

No mind to think. No will to break. No voice to cry suffering.

Last night I watched the Bruce Willis version of Death Wish. It sucked. The 70's version with Charles Bronson was better... a little at least. But of course they ruined that with sequels.

And got immediately banned by the subreddit.  DC fanboi are really butthurting right now.

I prefer those fancy sodas with real sugar instead of corn syrup. What's that like?
