I'm not into them, I find vidya more thrilling. It's more fun to design coasters in Roller Coaster Tycoon than to ride them and get spine or head damage from the bumping, plus sometimes they fail and people fall out and go splat.

Anyone else like ASMR? I have always had trouble falling asleep so I have listened to it every night for the past 3 years.

My all time GOAT is Ephemeral Rift (pic related) because his videos are often interesting stories more than just sound trigger videos.

Two other good ones are Phoenicean Sailor (also makes fantastic story videos, held back by releasing videos rarely) and Made in France ASMR

How is that weird? It's literally how everything in the world has always worked

That's why most zookeepers, veterinarians, the people they put at the front of the restaurant to deal with customers, etc are women

ASMR was mainly male back in about 2012 or so. By 2016 the transition to waifu was complete.

I love asmr and have been listening to it for the last 3-4 years. It's comfy as fuck and falling asleep to it reminds me of the feeling of falling asleep watching TV as a kid. I especially like the Japanese (RJ136105 is one of my favourites) and Japanese style ones, can't quite put my finger on why exactly but they are different from the more general stuff, maybe more affectionate?
I also find lewd stuff anoying, I want to sleep, not to coom.

Spoilers obviously
Was this Nolan's most reactionary film yet? The message of the film appears to be that future generations are all entitled brats who want to destroy the world to save themselves. The past should be preserved quite literally in this case at the expense of the future, who are all going to die of global warming. I think the future generations are right in this case. Fuck the boomers, global warming was their fault, and they would not hesitate to kill everyone before to save themselves so why should they?

Seemed like some references to the whole 'confederate statue' thing as well. This is the same guy who defended torture and mass surveillance. Elizabeth Debicki was hot as always though. Worth watching the movie just for her. That whole subplot was weird though, she didn't want to leave her abusive husband because he'd report her for art forgery? The level of threat there was not believable enough.

The movie as a movie is entertaining enough to watch at least once. The gimmick is enough to hold it up. I think everyone complaining that the sound mixing was too shit to hear anything is too focused on trying to understand something that's mostly an excuse for neat visual set pieces. That said, the climax of the film in that final battle was also the weakest part of the movie. It was difficult to tell who was shooting who and it looked like a scene out of inception.

Speaking of which I have trouble ranking this above or below inception. Inception had a stronger emotional core, Cobb was more of a character than "The Protagonist" but on the flipside(hah), Inception was still suffering from some halfway bullshit in terms of pacing. Rewatching that movie, it can drag heavily when they do exposition for an entire scene. In Tenet, Nolan and his editors seem to have perfected a style where every scene doesn't drag even though it can be exposition heavy.

This can be to a fault – the already mentioned plot point that future generations are going to invert the entire flow of time in a last ditch attempt to escape the end of the world due to climate change – is something that in any other movie would be treated as a major revelation. You'd have a scene of the main characters reacting to the news and thinking through the implications. The pacing in this movie is so scene-to-scene though that it's only explored once at the very end by the antagonist. Nolan leaves a lot of meat on the bone.

I had to just vent this somewhere. Spoilers below of course.

Overall this is a good movie, I think it did what it set out to do quite well, but it is basically a reactionary and insular view of existential dread and depression through aging.

The director is actually very forthcoming about what the film is "really" about, so there isn't much interpretation except death of the author alternate versions of what the movie was about. Kaufman said the movie is mostly the fantasies of the janitor, who is kind of trying to escape his regret and depression by imagining a better life. But in the process, he is basically so depressed and broken that he can't even achieve that. Kaufman kind of suggests he is interested in a wider notion that it can't be achieved at all, but within the movie it is specifically the janitor who can't fantasize. His own fantasy girlfriend kind of looks down on him, isn't totally interested in him, wants to leave him. He can't decide what her name is, how they met, what her career is. He keeps changing his mind about what happens on the night that they go meet his parents. He even inserts himself into his own fantasy as a creep, when the girl and the janitor's younger self kiss in the car and suddenly the younger self notices the janitor peering at them and rages that there is a pervert watching them. Ultimately the movie ends with the janitor killing himself by getting in his car during the blizzard and not turning it on.

So maybe it is obvious why this movie feels like it has a very liberal or even reactionary message, but I'll spell it out anyways. The director, Kaufman, is kind of a pretentious guy. I like a lot of his movies, but he is very concerned with existential crises and memory and identity and stuff. He is a good filmmaker, but I want to highlight how his focus is kind of idealist. I think he has very metaphysical notions of what drives human beings to behave and think the way they do, so to him this movie isn't about a depressed janitor so much as about the human condition. However, the movie is literally about a depressed janitor. Not only that, but the movie has several key lines in it that feel like they almost directly confront and endorse the concrete form the movie takes.

Basically, the movie explores this guy's regret and depression by kind of suggesting that there is no resolution to it, it is just a part of the human condition to have regrets and fear aging. The viewer just watchPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

What the maggot-infested pig hallucination says is not meant to be taken as the film's own position. It might as well be taken as the janitor's cynical self-hatred, saying it for the sake of hurting himself more. Or maybe it's a cope.
IMO the whole film is clearly a collage of conflicting thoughts and emotions that the janitor can't control, and it's impossible to single one of them as the explanation for the rest. Maybe the point of the film is that we're inescapably pathetic, fake and delusional, which is also Kaufman's shtick in his other films it seems.
If that's really the case then the film's point is very weak indeed. At best the film is an existential amusement park ride. Existentialism for the sake of dread, because that's what existentialists enjoy more than anything else.

YMS just did a summary on this movie
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fv9Zv-rpWzs
gotta say from what i've seen, looks like people are right and the pigs and things are his own self hatred, not so much an endorsement of the movie itself. That said, seems like a movie that's very individualistic and about self-reflection. Even under socialism, some people are just going to end up feeling subjectively unfulfilled and linger on 'what ifs'
So it doesn't seem so bad to me in regard to capitalist ideology

its actually not that bad from a marxist perspective, its almost like a childrens book made under socialist realism (except the "muh both sides" ending). Certainly better than harry potter.

Basically the capitol is an imperialist power subjugating its colonies by creating economic monocultures in the districts. It has a sophisticated culture industry that reinforces the subjugation of the districts.

It has good concepts, but it fails pretty badly in execution.
You could actually improve the movie and actually make it pretty damn interesting.
But truly, it's really just corporate trying to skimp out on costs by watering down their swill and then hoping to sell the consumers cheap hooch without them noticing it's crap.
