Considering how much of a celebrity and important cultural figure the Sisko was to the Bajorans, I'd really have loved to see baseball take off on Bajor. It would have been great to see Bajorans walking around in the background wearing baseball caps, newly en vogue (and supplied for a tidy profit courtesy of Quark's Quality Athletic Equipment Outlet). I want an episode where Sisko has to go down to Bajor and he's surprised to find that all kinds of teams are getting set up. And being Bajorans, I bet they mix in all kinds of religious aspects to it too, like having a Vedec ritually bless the ball, or having the Kai throw the first pitch at the Bajoran World Series. Serious religious disputes arise because of arguments over rules, like whether or not it's acceptable to use lightweight composite alloy bats, or if traditional wooden bats are required. The Kai has to write to Sisko begging him to settle aspects of the game because the Vedec assembly is in an uproar over the issue of pitch timers and Bajoran society starts to fly apart because of the introduction and mass adoption of chewing gum among the youth.

Has anybody watched Star Trek Lower Decks ?
Can anybody explain who the Pakled are supposed to be, they seem to become the main foe of the show ?

They used to be a weak species that only had tiny ships without warp and relied on trickery to get new tech from more advanced races, but now they have scavenged or looted warp-drive, good weapons and a bunch of other stuff. Their ships are large and powerful now. They also are extremely dumb while somehow being very cunning, and able to jerryrig starships from cross species hardware. ( I guess that's all plug & play ) And their social hierarchies are based on who wears the largest hat or helmet. They have casual revolutions but that only changes who wears the biggest hat. They have melted faces but can apparently survive hard vacuum… while being air breathing beings.


Here's a few videos about them.

Is this species intended for symbolism or not? Their story sounds like a budget Klingon without the warrior tendencies; the Klingons received their ships and weaponry through war with an imperialist "outsider". It was through this brief conflict that the Klingons were able to reverse engineer their warpdrive, making them an intergalactic powerhouse by the 14th century Earth time, essentially bypassing the social stages usually associated with getting to warp travel capability that the Prime Directive is meant to prevent.
But for the Pakleds, apparently they don't build anything of their own and they don't really reverse engineer stuff either, they just stick parts of other ships onto theirs, maybe they found super intelligent nanobots glue that makes technology go if you just stick it together without them understanding anything, or they are idiot savants that are really good at creating technology inter-compatibility matrices and nothing else. TNG mentions a capability of programming but it was for a trap. How Pakleds were Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Star Wars cgi circus battles
LMAO what? Do you mean Disney Star Wars? Because old star wars up until the prequels did exactly that; slow and methodical space sea-battles, although both series had their different approaches

Considering how godawful Terminator Dark Fart was and how bland Abatap 2* was, I have little faith in Cameron anymore. Spielberg's Ready Player One** was just "reference; the movie" with a badly made plot that rips off every "VR" movie before it, like Tron, while pretending to be about "freedom" or some shit. Other films under his production like the Jurassic World series have been pretty lame too, so I have doubts that there would be much difference if either of those 2 made/owned Star Trek properties, rather than Kurtzman. As a side note Kurtzman is also one of the creators of Transformers 2, and CBS in general produces very shoddy series, so is it really a surprise CBS Star Trek sucks? Hollywood is all but dead at this point.

In Georgia.


always found the fact that any asian country can be considered european as long a sit aligns with interets of the US, like turkey seethes when people don’t identify it as part of europe, just like other “european” countries do. why a pointless waste of time since eruope and asia don’t really exist as separate entities like libs would like to pretend.

Nimona didn't give me Shrek vibes to be honest, Shrek was a very different creature (no pun intended) both plot wise and character wise, I think you may be associating the two simply because it's a bit crass in places as Shrek was. I enjoyed Nimona even in spite of it, and looking over the wall was plausibly deniable for the sake of the story.
On the topic of good independent Western cartoons, I highly suggest The Sea Beast, it's very unique.
>Give her a bigger package you cowards
LOL no.


I find a lot of youtube efforts to be pretty inspiring and refreshing, like Lackadaisy for example

you're a coward and a weakling


Jesus Christ that's an abomination of a Jojo balloon animal. At least have better taste in futa m8.


I recently watched the Dreamworks Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken Movie. It was pretty lame to be honest, and it's entire plot feels like a femcel movie where beautiful girls are evil and "ugly" non-traditionally beautiful girls are hidden beauties in a lazy "be yourself" message. It's a plot that has existed for a long time, but in this particular film it's quite a step over something like Heathers.
They were REALLY banking on discount Ariel to bring in tickets out of spiting Disney and it justifiably lost a lot more money simply because the movie was terrible looking and had a very mediocre story to begin with.
Now I've never liked yurishit because it's almost never good, but unironically I think the movie (probably) wouldn't have flopped (as hard) if it actually was a romance between Ruby and Chelsea instead of whatever nonsense it turned out to be. Sure some people wouldn't like a lesbian movie but if it's done tastefully it'd be at least interesting. Hell it has a typical "enemies to friends/lovers" vibe.
Also, it had a really bad schedule to release in movie theaters all around. The new Spiderverse movie just hit cinemas and was destroying the box office in money and the Mario movie was released to home video after it made a world record for highest grossing animated movie yet. Production wise it is a significant downgrade from Puss in Boots 2. But at least it has something for the fetish-audience; giantess, tentacles, etc.

TL;DR: It's a typical teen drama movie but as one review for it said, there's a simpler, more sincere movie underneath it all that seems to be taunting audiences, like a glowing shape from deep below. If they took some more time to streamline the story it would have been pretty good I think, though the art style was frankly too janky and Illumination-tier rubbery. It's similar to Turning Red tbh, an interesting concept playing with mythologies within a modern human society, but its done horribly. Cheap girl movies like Aquamarine were better executed than this.

Classic yet controversial genre. Of course, it falls into tropes and mythologizes this era. At the same time, you have to admit, it can be good media. Share your favorite films, books, games and etc.
My favorite western scene was the end scene of The Searchers. I don't know why but the music, the framing of the shot. And maybe its because it was the first film to properly introduce me to western films, but I love it.

Brazilian cinema had a few western-inspired movies about the cangaço era and the most famous director, Glauber Rocha, just happens to be a massive Marxist with his favourite topic being religion as the opiate of the masses. Deus e o Diabo na Terra do Sol (known internationally as "Black God, White Devil") is about a cattle herder who kills his own boss and flees to join the religious zealot criminals he meets along the way, and Dragão da Maldade contra o Santo Guerreiro (also known as "Antonio das Mortes") is a sequel about the previous bounty hunter antagonist who is guilt consumed about being hired to hunt down the last remaining cangaço group and ends up joining them against the town's oligarch. You can find both on YouTube with decent English subtitles and I deeply recommend them if you enjoy third world surrealism, characters ranting in long proses, and wacky kayfabe fights.


>You mean The Quick and The Dead but typed the same title twice
Whoops, my mistake. I didn't know Raimi directed it as well? That's pretty cool. As I say, it's been a while since I've seen it.

Is anyone else going to watch Scorsese's new Western film that's coming out?


File: 1693413352432.jpg (254.73 KB, 1500x999, thesistersbrothers.jpg)

Anyone seen Sisters Brothers? Saw it sometime last year. I'm too smol brain grug to write a review so I'll just say I enjoyed it a lot. Loved the ending. Suprisingly comfy at times.

Really appreciate the small moments of them doing & experiencing things like simply getting food, the toothpaste, visiting the big city, showering in the hotel. Solidifies the setting as more than just pastiche. Even depicts pre-cartridge revolvers accurately. They actually swap out cylinders to reload mid fight. Thought the gunfighting was great as well. There's a heft and power to how the revolvers sound.


For a Few Dollars More is arguably the best of the "Dollars" series, which often is associated with Once Upon a Time in the West and Duck You Sucker / Fistful of Dynamite.

Fievel Goes West is like a fever dream, especially with the context of the original American Tail movie clearly taking place in the 20th century and having a much more serious tone. That kind of heightens it to feeling mythic. It's also notable for having Jimmy Stewart's last role.

The Coen version of True Grit is great. One of the few times Matt Damon is used well in a more recent movie, where he feels like an actual character in the world and not milking star power. The whole cast is perfect and it nails the nihilistic tone it's going for.

High Plains Drifter is a classic and one of Eastwood's first films as director. It really leans into the surrealism and mystery without going full gonzo like El Topo or something. Dead Man is kind of similar to that but more restrained, it feels like it works on an almost "fairy tale" logic but also has the nihilist/absurdist tone perfect.

Shanghai Noon gets points for Chinese representation in the West (surprisingly not a lot of examples despite the rich story potential as well as the large Chinese movie market today). Only other example that springs to mind if Blazing Saddles which I'm kind of surprised nobody mentioned yet but maybe it's just too low-hanging fruit. It's also more of a Hollywood-meta parody film than a western anyway, so maybe it doesn't count.

Visible in the pic is some of the weird mutants I got like the one shroom forming another mushroom fused to the top of the cap in reverse like something out of Akira. The bump and the little squigly bit is a cap and stalk forming which even produced it's own set of spores however I forgot to swab it and instead tried a tissue culture which seems contam'd unfortunately.


No idea but you should eat it
