Re: Tramuzgan's shills and rants

Can you give me some examples of both/either, to clarify what you mean a bit?


I wonder if I'm misunderstanding, because this seems untenably extreme. All talk of motive trivializes the artistic...

El Camino: Breaking Bad Movie

Re: El Camino: Breaking Bad Movie

Nothing crazy, but I'd say it's the equivalent of two Pretty Good Breaking Bad episodes back to back. Some very clever stuff, and it definitely fleshes the world and some of the characters out a bit...

Hmmm. I honestly can't tell if I agree or not. My instinct is that many great works have an instructional motive, but that very few have what we'd call a "political" motive, which is a slightly...

I do, with the caveat that "films" is plural because it refers to film in total, as a medium, and not just any individual film. Obviously individual films can be mindless entertainment, and that's...

Yeah, I'm probably going to start it today/this weekend. Pretty excited. But paradoxically sometimes I don't play stuff I'm really looking forward to, either because I'm saving it (The Banner Saga 3)...

Yeah, I "fell" for this, too, in that I briefly thought I "remembered" that. Which really goes to show how dangerous this stuff is. I thought I remembered something that was just kind of floated as a...

Re: Unnecessary hysteria about Joker?

I don't think so. IIRC families of victims from past shootings kinda kicked things off by sending an open letter (preemptively upset about a deranged individual being presented sympathetically,...
