Is it just me or is the Jurassic World 2 trailer shockingly bad?

Thank you! I'm very happy to hear that.

I really like your thoughts on Shasta's seduction scene, I left that out completely as I didn't really know where to start with it - and it's certainly one of the central scenes in the film. It sticks out in every way.

No way, this movie is great. Such great characters, so many actions out of desperation that somehow feel motivated, and a complex story that manages to feel simple and relatable. Maybe you were looking for a Coen Bros movie, and didn't get it? Besides Frances McDormand* being in it, I'm not sure what is Coens Brothers-y about this movie at all. And that's great.

*also, she crushes it.

things get harder and sadder as you age, if you let them. the transitory nature of cultural objects--which feel so important to us now--that's a rabbit hole that leads into existentialism and the root of the problem, you know. my god, this whole time the problem was inside us, every fucking time man.

tv and movies and vlogs are visual arts. and from what i hear, primates are visual creatures. so they have a real advantage and that's a separate category. textual art, writing, words, that's not for all primates. it's for humans. it's for our goddamn advanced consciousnesses, okay. like i said, separate category.

in our contemporary reality the fear of literature is computers, both in terms of its effect upon readerly desires, and all the smart people preferring to study computers now. but first of all the robots are going to take over and that'll be their bad. second of all oh art will never die let's be serious.

Here's a great, in-depth, very spoilery interview with PTA about the film.

I suspect that was cobbled together from the several post-screening discussions he attended.  A couple of the quotes I recall from the screening I was at.

I still don't understand why DDL doesn't get a co-screenplay credit, though, after reading that.

More than this particular instance, I'm curious to see how future generations will feel about it. In thirty years, will anybody see a significant difference between movies and TV? Or movies, TV, and web video? Are vlogs short films (I think yes?) or something else? I've seen plays where they film the shit and project it on a screen. Is that cinema, television, theatre? Saw one where it was a projection of webcam footage online from laptops onstage and off. What about Coppola's live TV thing? It's hard to say if these are new forms or not.

no one feared that music was replacing literature

No, but they've forever feared that TV was replacing literature. We should stop fearing these things.

Can just delete that rightmost node, and direct it to the bottom, but yeah, I dig it.

Taika Waititi needs to direct a Star Wars movie. Immediately. Give him all the money.

Oh my:

Star Wars: Kennedy Wants to Enlist Thor: Ragnarok’s Taika Waititi

Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi might have his next job lined up. Speaking to Newshub, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy informally offered Waititi a job helming a film in the Star Wars franchise.

“I would love for him to direct a Star Wars movie,” she said. “I think he has exactly the right sensibility. It was very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an amazing job with Thor.”

Waititi has addressed the idea of helming a Star Wars film in the past, remarking that the franchise has little room for a filmmaker like him. He also cited the “determinedly self-serious” tone of the franchise and a lack of improvisation as further reasons why he wouldn’t be a good fit. Waititi even went so far as to say he’d be “fired within a week.” However, he later told Uproxx that he is “not an idiot. Who would actually say no to Star Wars?”
