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. Adopt whom? To protect against wildlings? The FBI is looking for his address. Yes to the first part. Wrong to the second part because Cleganebowl is the climax and therefore should be in the end. One word: Cleganebowl. Enough said. Do you have an imagination? She fulfilled her goal, given to her by the lord of light. Good representation of the martyrdom spirit. I get not your conclusions about Emma Watson, assuming you are considering the Harry Potter version of Emma Watson, but Emma Watson NOW looks like an adult woman. No, I'm not turned on by little girls because I'm not a pedophile. Sue me. Go watch Avengers 10, little boy.
