that was enjoyable The short stories were my least favorite thing about this show Alien franchise - best to worst was it really cancelled because of covid or was it the ratings? so many figures in the background Not as good as the first, the story makes little sense what happened to the stabbed warlock that had the Iguana familiar? what was the point of the scenes where the older kid makes eye-contact with girls?

i doubt you researched anything beyond Call of Duty lobbies, you couldn't spell to save your 12-year old troll life. you are allowed to return here when you aren't dribbling half your words, someone should have taught your mother the concept of gravity when you were a baby in the first 2 episodes there's no flashy action scenes and yet i still found myself engrossed in the story, presentation, & world-building, that is the mark of a well-written show that doesn't rely on cheap dazzle, so im looking forward to the rest i can definitely see how the englishman looks to be very very fortunate and how that would conflict with the audience's suspension of disbelief, but there is some history to support that since the Japanese were very isolationist and not aware of certain things, plus Toranaga is backed into a corner and would use any hail-mary he can. at first i didnt like the out of focus edges, but it seems like as the episodes go on they are using this effect to warp & distort the entire picture for storytelling purposes, and then i grew into it not sure why this thread even exists because after watching the first 3 episodes theres no female warrior protagonist, there is a scene where Mariko helps her group fight off an ambush using a naginata, which is in line with historical accounts of onna-musha, and she's not even the main focus. y'all right wingers fragile, don't worry, male supremacy isn't being challenged here, in fact she gets told several times to remain in the house and not try to aspire to be anything outside of the house, which should make you all very happy his ship wasn't the only ship out there, it's mentioned that theres a Korean ship that was also sent to investigate the nebula. he did leave his own ship and became untethered, but ended up being saved by the Korean ship. it was real, but that last scene was designed to either leave room for a sequel, or keep moviegoers tense so they bring the movie's fear home with them yeah there's no point to seeing horror movies at the theater, unless maybe you go to one of the early time slots on weekdays. people like to yell "boo!" or scream before a jumpscare happens, they're bad at managing their phones, and the combined smell of nacho cheese and popcorn is nauseating, even though i like both of those things. ive even seen people bring cans of vienna sausages and then dump the liquid on the floor. jesus fucking christ. we're not going to make it it was an interesting way to do a protagonist, i was not expecting all the twists. also new perspectives on the creatures, mostly religious but also scientific. i have mixed feelings about the ending though, when the credits rolled i thought "wait thats it?" but perhaps that just means i wanted to keep seeing more because i was hooked. ultimately i understand that it was a good time to end the movie when the metal door started creaking because its sorta cliffhanger, and it also means that maybe Montjuïc isnt as safe as it initially seemed the person behind them in the last scene is not another It because he looks to the right and to the left, whereas the It stares at you & homes in on you, also a normal person would be using the sidewalk like that, whereas the It can come from any direction and not rely on man-made paths like that. the ending, and perhaps also the meaning of the movie is what the user acidraindrop commented: "you do your best to live your life forward, but the specter of death is always at hand". its also the last dialogue in the movie when Yara is reading Dostoyevsky in the hospital: "When there is torture there is pain and wounds, physical agony, and all this distracts the mind from mental suffering, so that one is tormented only by the wounds until the moment of death. But the most terrible agony may not be in the wounds themselves but in knowing for certain that within an hour, then within ten minutes, then within half a minute, now at this very instant – your soul will leave your body and you will no longer be a person, and that is certain; the worst thing is that it is certain.” you could just take the movie literally as a good horror story, but it could also be that the "monster" is a metaphor for death, and the "curse" that we pass on are our genes or our hopes that by reproducing we are somehow extending our time, that our death may not be so final holy fuck 8800 comments, do you live here you nazi bitch?
