My favorite movies are marvel movies and star wars and anything else thats popular with my friends

I dont go for all that weird stuff you guys are talking about


looks like some fed glowie shit ngl.


Everyday this scorsese guy whines about muh art form
They make millions and weep for the imaginary indie director or some shit
Why can't these old directors shut the fuck up with their pile of money.

Film is not a important cultural issue to be talking about in pop culture. Pretentious rich cunts should die off.
I hate every director with a passion, They are high off their own asses


Watched À Bout de Souffle (1960) last night after checking out La Chinoise (1967), liking the latter but being too tired to finish it.
My god, I fucking hated À Bout de Souffle - they say La Chinoise isn't "good" as a first Godard because it represents a pretty big departure from classic French New Wave toward a more purely didactic style, but I actually found that more innovative, engaging and daring than the self-absorbed meaninglessness of À Bout de Souffle. That surface-level conversation, that smugly style-over-substance attitude, those insufferable midwit main characters, is that just what the French New Wave usually is or am I totally missing something? Or are there other films by Godard that simply evolve the same style in a more interesting direction (I've heard good things about Vivre Sa Vie [1962])?

Batman = fashman. He's a white rich man who usurps the rule of law through violence, and is motivated by "cleaning the scum off the streets" i.e. beating up mentally ill lumpens


There's nothing wrong with beating up lumpens, they prey on the proletariat.


they are the proletariat's class ally against the bourgeoisie, unemployed are also victims of capitalism

>“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbours … even by children … Because history is edited, most people today don’t realise that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbours hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views.”



I'm fucking pissed they did this. Goddammit.


Maybe they just used this as a pretext. Considering their statement that she wasn't currently hired anyway, they might have just been planning to let her go anyway. This way they don't have to say
>she got too fat for the role




as of current canon she is like the only other half-decent force user around, assuming Kal Cestus has either died or something else. Really it was Luke or Ahsoka, barring them bringing back a Legends character randomly.

Perhaps it has become your goal to be more charismatic, uninhibited and sociable.

Let's have a thread where we ask questions and give advice to improve exactly that.

Well if that‘s your attitude I guess you deserve your fate


Don't think this counts as a "social skill" but this seems like the right place to ask: How do I improve my attention span? My attention span has always been shit but I feel like it's gotten way worse since quarantine started because I've just been switching through social media constantly, literally every day. Any tips on how to improve it?


I noticed this for myself a few years back. I had read zillions of short articles commenting on leftist theory and history, but my progress in actually checking off the tomes they were referencing (Capital, etc.) was shameful. I'm not going to pretend I'm perfect, but these three things helped:

1. Stop doing serious reading on anything with a web browser. The temptation to click into tabbed threads, porn, or wiki digressions is too strong. I highly recommend getting an eBook reader and appropriating free books from MIA and libgen (I hate Bezos too but Kindle is the best e-reader). Dead tree books are great too, but I typically reserve those for reference tomes, Capital and the like.
2. Stimulants. Caffeine helps a lot for serious reading. Most grocery stores have squeezable caffeine syrup bottles you can add to water for an instant fix.
3. Scheduling. Plan in advance when you'll do your reading, for example, "from 7:00 to 9:00 tonight I'm going to read Anti-Duhring. Works great until something forces you to break your schedule and you put down the book for months

Mars is meant to be China/Russia: power ascendant superpower that spends too much o mill tech compared to its own internal development.


Spoilers ahead:

So they decided to kill Alex off due to Cas Anvar being #metoo'ed in a really hamfisted way. They reshot a bunch of scenes where they go like "yeah, he got a stroke. Happens!" after they showed Alex "dying" by showing him not moving in the cockpit while they inserted an acceralting beep soundeffect. Really? The entire tension in this season was built up for Naomi's fate, to dump another main character while she remains unscathed seem cold as fuck, and I think viewers will notice. It's basically an off-screen death. I just don't understand why they didn't just have a recast? His character arc feels completely unfinished.

Shame on an otherwise decent finale.


>in a really hamfisted way.
how redundant. the entire show is ham fisted and emotionally manipulative

What do you mean by this? I didn't get the impression from the authors that they're trying to manipulate you with their character designs. They even defended Marco Inaros on Twitter.

Holy shit, I've rarely seen a movie as on the nose and blunt in its critique of capitalist society, and yet Americans seemingly cannot comprehend what it's a criticism of. I've seen "It's about authoritarianism" "It's about the death of free market competition" "It's secretly about socialism!"
Holy fuck, how can it be possible to be as retarded as burgers? It's like unless a film blatantly jumps up and down shouting "CAPITALISM BAD" they literally can't parse out any form of symbolism or allegory at all. Why are these people such idiotic apes?
The writer/director was literally part of the South Korean Socialist Party, tf is the dysfunction in burger brains?

The problems of capitalism are created by engineering ? Marx thought it possible it could liberate us from drudgery. Do you have an excuse for negating him ?

The jet plane has been one of the most historically progressive forces yet known. Undoubtedly it will be phased down-or-out as the piston engined plane before it was, but it's important not to let it fall to the wayside as though it has been a bad thing so far, a historically regressive anomaly like so much of the modern tech industry. The present push against aviation in general is itself profoundly reactionary.
The risk that lies ahead of us is not that the number of flights will be cut - undoubtedly they will, and undoubtedly this is necessary - it is that the burden will be decided by the market, and thus disproportionately wreck the progressive achievements of aviation for ordinary people. That the average person's visit to a foreign country and culture, or the lifeline air links of far-flung communities will be destroyed by market pricing while business jets continue to fly the wealthy to unnecessary networking conferences. Flights on key business links like London to Paris may yet be continued even though there's a perfectly adequate rail service, while the people of the far flung pacific are told to make do with finding themselves several weeks by boat away from the rest of the planet, rather than the half-day they face currently. (PDF related, a map of major air routes and their travel times in the Pacific islands.)

I'm not disagreeing with you on the big issue - of the need to rebalance away from jets and to reduce the amount of travel - what concerns me is the principle, and the equity of how we approach that task. Fundamentally, it should be recognized that allowing ordinary people to experience foreign cultures in person - even in the cheap, tacky tourist form they often do - and generally shrinking the scale of the world are both massive historical gains, and it would be a mistake to regard them as a misstep. On the question of equity: Global air passenger numbers may be cut back to the levels of the 1950s, but that doesn't mean that the composition of travelers (in terms of finances and reason for traveling) should do the same. Transport networks should be integrated and rationed with a view to preserving the mobility of the average person, not simply priced at a market rate with the consequence of cutting the world to ribbons for for us while preserving the status quo for the wealthy. (And of course I'm not saying thatPost too long. Click here to view the full text.


>Obviously I'm in the Plane thread, so you can expect my position may come across as being the pro-Plane one - but it's not about preserving aircraft, it's about preserving mobility - which in some cases can only viably be air links.

File: 1612185663678.jpg (725.62 KB, 1300x758, HS_Airlines_Snapshot_large.jpg)

>why? whats the difference to today?
of the 7 airlines visible in those pictures, only 2 still exist today. every other one merged into American Airlines. Not that AA is uniquely bad, United and Delta have eaten an equally large number of once independent carriers too. Since pic related was made, United merged with Continental and American merged with US Airways. Not helping matters is that airlines tend to make their paintschemes more bland over time, partially in line with minimalist design trends and partially because the more white the plane is, the cheaper it is to repaint it and lease it to other airlines when you don't need it.
of the plane models pictured, none remain in passenger service in the US today. Again there has been a reduction in the diversity of types: Every single plane pictured, whether it's got two decks or one, two engines, three, or four, a pointy nose or a rounded one, a T-shaped tail or a conventional tail, etc, would now be replaced by a plane with two gigantic engines stuck under the wings and a pointy nose. this is a side effect of basic physics, but it's still something that makes the world less interesting to live in.
>Also why does flying suck now?
the main reason the quality of service has dropped is deregulation. until the late 1970s airlines weren't allowed to compete by cutting their ticket prices, so they competed on offering the best service possible. the catch was that flying was very expensive, since airlines could pass all their operating costs on to the customer. with the increased competition since then, economy class service has been cut down to keep costs low while first class service has focused less on food, entertainment, etc, and more on stuff like lie-flat seats or greater frequency of flights. since in most cases business travellers aren't too concerned about the quality of meals - although a few international airlines still offer higher quality, highly expensive service in first class.

Would you spend the night alone in an aviation museum for 50k? You have to sleep on the floor in the center.

I don't care how much I'm being paid, I could not stand the thought of being close to any of the aircrafts. It's like they are sentient, and they know full well that you are there. That brings me to a level of fear that I cannot ever explain. Then they just sit there, as if waiting to just fire up and take off through the building.


For 50 large I would spend a night on top of one of those hanging up there. Would do it for much less too.
