Has this film been called white supremacist yet? Boring and shallow. Couple hints you might have missed Amazing! This is what sci-fi is supposed to be about! Why the low rating? Trash, but not out of the ordinary trash When movies like this come out, all the shiteaters complain. Simultaneously they hate remaining shallow CGI nonsense... Extremely good. Jon is Russia/Siberia, Sansa is the UK, Arya is the US, Bran is EU All of the unsullied will go extinct in one generation View all posts >

"Do you think this movie will inspire psychos? Mass shootings?" I hope so. why is human survival the axiomatic good? Because all the DNA that did not predispose the harboring of such an axiom went extinct. We are slaves to DNA and the futile cycle of death and rebirth. Human extinction is the path to emancipation, it is the path to Nirvana. Wrong. there are 0 good Star Wars movies. Star Wars movies have the intellectual depth of a Nickelodean sitcom. The lore and fiction can be deep to be sure, but the movies are not that. You only view the original trilogy with reverence because you are wearing nostalgia goggles. He's just not a very compelling character. He always feels forced no matter what. His motivations are shallow. Just boring revenge. It's sad that they are trying to force him. Phantom Thread 3rd, wtf? There Will be Blood - 10/10 The Master - 9.5/10 Boogie Nights -7.5/10 Phantom Thread Magnolia Punch Drunk Love Inherent Vice I've forgotten or haven't seen Hard Eight. For me There will be blood and The Master are in a separate category. Other than those, PTK films are just okay. Xenomorph. Alien was not a big budget blockbuster. James Cameron is the one who created the big budget crutch to the series by creating Aliens. But, this was not the fault of the creators of Alien. The money grubbing unintelligent producers of Alien decided to make it into a big budget franchise. While typically I would say that big budget doesn't matter, in the case of Prometheus and Covenant, the big budget reputation of the franchise was definitely a crutch because it set up certain expectations from the audience. These expectations would not exist if Aliens and the films after that did not exist. I personally don't consider those films to be cannon, they diverge entirely from the themes of Alien. The themes of Alien don't return until Prometheus and Covenant. Prometheus and Covenant and Alien are by design really difficult to understand, because the themes are not very politically correct or easy for humans to bear. The themes have to be hidden. They require some audience knowledge about nihilist philosophy. The biggest clue is "The Perfect Organism" lecture by Ash in Alien. I have seen Upgrade. IMO it's not on the same level as I AM MOTHER and Alien/Covenant/Prometheus. I haven't seen Rememory ARQ and Infinity Chamber. Read the first 3 paragraphs and I'm like, wtf, you know this fucking movie is MOTHER FUCKING FICTION right!? Naria is bunk because Lions can't possibly talk. Harry Potter is bunk because there are no wizards who can fly on broomsticks! Lord of the Rings is bunk because lol elves and orcs wtf, do these people even know science! Only religious zealots made these fucking movies. Not going to read further. Thanks. I agree with all of the above. I remember this one: Vasco da gama... Went to Panama... And had some bananas... With his momma. It was inaccurate because Vasco da gama never went to Panama. They were not recruited. They were enslaved from birth. All their recruiters/slavers are dead. View all replies >
