I want that deep red Zizek pill on why Disney is remaking their old animated feature films but devoid of soul and charm as live action monstrosities and why Hollywood in general cannot make a new story and is endlessly digging its head into its own anus amid a shit slurry of “sequels” and remakes of IPs from the 80s.
Like, I get the base actual reason is $$$ because they figure they’ll always get an audience doing so, but I still want the more basic economic facts as to why god awful remakes and sequels decades later are the only film products that can turn a profit and I wanna know the ideology present in the making of these products

Money. They are doing it for money.


Live action is usually much cheaper than animation


> the thing is, also… every discussion about Whether The MCU Is Garbage or Is Disney Irredeemably Evil or Has Star Wars Gone On Too Long or Why Does It Feel Like There’s Been Just Three Shows On American TV For The Past 3 Decades inevitably ends up at “hey but don’t shame people for wanting to have fun and escape the continuous nightmare of late capitalism for 2 hours a night” and like. fair. being effortlessly entertained is a valid desire that deserves to be fulfilled. but the thing is. and I really don’t wanna be That Guy but. if you’re coming back home from your soul-crushing corporate job into your alienated nuclear household, tired from a busy day of doing some bullshit to make a living, and you feel dead inside, and your idea of escape is to tune into the next installment of something that’s not really cinema as much as like, a long serialized commercial for the fast fashion items with the popular character of the month, then I’m sorry bro but you’re not really going anywhere. you’re not escaping, you’re sinking deeper in. and look. it’s your god given right to watch schlocky TV and then go read fanfic about it. but if you’re wondering why all this dazzling entertainment still leaves you feeling so empty you just wanna scream and scream and scream, then you might actually have an acute case of going too long without consuming any media that has an intent beyond draining your money and time and a formula beyond regurgitating what sold best last year



It costs millions and millions of dollars to make movies. New stuff is riskier than nostalgia bait. It's not that complicated.

>cinematography thread
>no mention of Eisenstein


I've noticed a pattern and want to see if you agree:

All the films about a protagonist having a strange experience of the world (unintentional time travel, can stop time, parallel universe where no-one has lied, etc.) have a male lead.


What about that old burger film the one with the cowardly lion and a scarecrow


That old black and white color film? Yeah, good point.


almost all films have a male lead

If you're just hoping to keep gear dry through rain, a regular pack with a rain cover will be fine. Many outdoor backpacks come with a water-resistant coating anyway, which is fine for a light drizzle. Alternatively, you could just say fuck it and use drum liners to keep everything on the inside dry. Also consider a poncho that can be thrown over the pack while you wear it if you don't want to carry separate rain gear (jacket and pants). If you're going to be around water a lot with the pack (e.g., canoeing, fly fishing) a waterproof pack might be worth it. Your options for packs are going to be more limited though.


Any tips for hiking in winter? The sun goes down so early.

Wash it out at home and dump on our neighbors turnip garden or take it to an industrial washer. Yes it probably has a pinch of lead in it.


Thread to discuss this novel and make people envious and more apt to read this book.
It's a very cool universe where the US was overtaken by China and underwent a cultural revolution: "the great cleansing winds" or some shit. And augmented people fly in kites around Manhattan, cool shit.


Here's the book. Hope I can discuss it with some of you in the future.


Looks good m8, I'll check it out


You better, it's really cool, zola feeling without the descriptive heaviness.

Are Language courses on Udemy worth spending money on?
If yes, which one would you recommend?
Udemy is having a sale that is going to end in 12 hours.


I'd say "probably not worth it".


just download them from free, they dont starve
im currently seeding russian, german, chinese, korean, and some programming languages udemy courses


Are they prerecorded or live sessions? If it is the former, they are probably not worth it. You can hire people to tutor you 1-on-1 on italki and similar sites.

The Tiger was an awful tank, a waste of resources and did nothing to change the course of any battle.

>>964>Aircraft carriersTheir only real use is to act as transport and launch pads for imperialist fleets to park off the coast of a smaller country and bomb it to shit.

It's part of the whole "le uber reich/clean wehrmacht" myth about how the heroic, well trained Germans all killed the soviet horde 10:1 but lost because "muh red zerg rush"

Is investing in bitcoin or crypto worth it in 2021? I thought it would stagnate by now but there has been a lot of growth at the beginning of the year, if i remember correctly. I was thinking about putting a chunk of money on my wallet and letting it snowball until it grows a couple of times so that buying an apartment will be easier for me, but I can't seem to decide without asking my internet friends about it first. Based or cringe idea?

I would just go for it, I started last year thinking I was always too late, and doubled my savings, although the price was a lot lower last year,iam personally wary of just letting it stay there, because the price may crash, planning to pull it out next year


buying a security and selling it within the same day
as opposed to more long-term management


i hate the stock market so much
why do they have to invent their own terms

now i gotta google what security means


I invested in bitcoin since 2019 and 2.5x what I've put in. You can still make gains with it. Presumably Bitcoins price will
1) crash now and rise steadily until November 2022
2) significantly rise and then crash before steadily rising until November 2022
That's just the prognosis for now. We should be around the 100k to 200k range next November.


securities are just any kind of financial contract that you can trade. stocks/equities, futures, loans, etc
clicking around on investopedia can be useful, although they can still be pretty opaque
