This Year In Film / Re: The Incredibles 2
« Last post by pete on June 30, 2018, 07:42:39 PM »
this movie was nonsense. I kinda hate children's movies where the plot revolves around the whims of PR people. there's something gross about execs so blatantly making the movies about themselves. It was the plot of Bolt and it was also the weakest part of the first Nolan Batman movie (something something PR needs therefore bat mask). I just can't imagine children or people in general giving a shit about this kinda stuff.

I cried at bao though.

Yeah, once you've pieced together where the various timelines take place in relation to each other, there's really nothing particularly oblique about the season. It's a fairly straight-forward narrative outside the non-linearity.

This is one of the worst podcast episodes I've ever heard:

https://slate.com/culture/2018/06/westworld-a-spoiler-filled-review.html

Four very intelligent Slate writers attempt to discuss Westworld Season 2, but they've done absolutely no preparation, get things wrong over and over again, confuse themselves and each other... and the listener. The producer should have aborted this ten minutes in and told everyone to do their homework and try again some other time.

(Westworld S2 is not that hard to interpret. Multiple podcasts have been doing it just fine.)

Be sure to learn Brigitte's combo:

1. Shield Bash
2. One swing
3. Whip Shot

Moira is one of my mains. Highly recommend her. One of the most adaptive heroes in the game.

i don't spend private time with my roommate except when we watch tv together, and private time is essential--we had decided on watching this show together, and i already explained that it's the first three episodes i want to see, and he thought that was fine since he understood, but actually there'll be this thing with like coordinating schedules and everything, of course, it's a 47-52minuter btw, so that'll need to be worked out--within the week trial period i don't think we'd watch the whole season anyway, or at least i wouldn't binge with him is what i'm saying no offense intended--otherwise i'd be chatting about this show already.

i'm predeveloping this view point that a feature within The Lowery Touch isn't period or even time so much as atmosphere, as to say his narratives aren't confined to their sense of time so much as, of course, their dreamscape.

do you have anything good on Birgitte or D.Va?

I tried Birgitte the first time last night, and was surprised by how easy she was to play. Might be fun to learn someone with a higher skill ceiling though, but idk, she seemed fun to play as well. I like playing support too. Maybe Zen? But I guess I could watch Stylosa for him. He seems to be playing him a lot. How is Moira?

I'll check those out. thanks!

also, is there anyone else other then Stylosa who makes good Overwatch YT content? I have enjoyed his videos a lot (especially his coaching series), but would be nice to watch someone else too.

Stylosa is a good entry point to Overwatch Youtube, but in the end I don't get much from his videos anymore. His coaching videos can be great, but sometimes he does them for heroes he doesn't know. If you're interested in videos on a specific hero, I can probably link you to something good.

My go-to channels are Your Overwatch and BTC.

For coaching and analysis: Jayne and OneAmongstMany.

Do post when you're done. I don't think it's the best season, but it may have some of the highest moments.

Quentin Tarantino / Re: Once Upon A Time In Hollywood

Anyone else thinking this might be a horror movie? Structured like Pulp Fiction like they said, but not played especially funny. Some good buddy-buddy banter of course, but its treatment of the murders and their aftermath could be done in a Polanski-esque fashion.
