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?

This and Planet of the Apes were some of the most iconic series created in France… that most people don't know was made in France.

Does this website have anything meaningful to say in terms of media analysis or are their tropes just invented by a couple of redditors that wanted to develope a niche project?

It can be a useful tool for writing and discovering things that have story elements that you can like. On the flipside, there is a tendency to believe that a story can be broken down into parts and can be categorized, and that these categorizations make something 'good' or not. People obsess over these story components rather than enjoying the story in and of itself.

Also, some of the userbase has a tendency to be obnoxious in this regard. Trying to label this behavior as REDDIT is an oversimplification.

Stories are not legos but many who use TVtropes have this tendency to look at stories and see these interchangeable parts. Or that 'writing a good story' is avoiding certain story elements. That and some used to think fictional story elements could be applied to real life back when the (embarrassing) forums were still a thing.

Basically paraphrasing this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQsPo6L9m-A

Back to reddit for you.


I just use the tropes' example pages to find obscure, old, and niche works I might not have heard of before. Wouldn't dream of referring to it for actual literary criticism.


>They deleted those pages though
liberals and libertarians took over the site.


This Soviet TV series is probably the best TV show ever made. It is pure кино and deeply anti-fascist, anti-imperialist, and anti-USA. It's about a Soviet spy sabotaging peace talks between the OSS and Himmler (to allow the USA and Nazi Germany to team up on the USSR). It was made at the request of the head of the KGB. The tension and drama in this show is outstanding!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WZhgXs_iFRs&list=PLHiAMOiVIvsD2u8g0RLwvdRScEe9yiUr5&index=2&t=0s

Yes I've seen it, I've seen most of his films, my all time favorites are С Легким Паром and Мимино


A similar short series came out called SMERSH, that features a single main character and his behind the lines operations throughout the war. It's pretty good.


Embedding error.
I wanted to talk of one of the iconic scenes of the series, video embed related.
In this scene Stirlitz ends up in discussion with a German General. Their discussion of the soon-to-end war is an insightful perspective of the people fighting on the Nazi side, and the lament of people the catastrophic end to come. Gritzenko pulls off the scene so genuinely that you cannot help but feel the emotions and position he is in; in one small scene you see two lives full of values, honor and love for the consciousness of the people.


Every time I see this series I am reminded of Обыкновенный Фашизм by Mikhail Romm


It's the same aesthetics.

Does anyone have any experience with meditation or mindfulness?
Ive been seeing it again and again and it *supposedly, i havent checked myself** studies show it can help you focus better and reduce overstimulation from the outside world.
As someone who has struggled my entire life being overstimulated by everything, and who has felt my anxiety increase and my ability to focus drop over the past few years, I wonder if i should try meditating. Leaving aside all of the spiritual aspects, and leaving aside all of the stemlord objections, are there tangible benefits? Did anyone try?
How do i properly do it? For how long?
Thank you.

Is that from /fringe/ ? I recall seeing a big thread on unusual meditation methods and was never able to recover it after the fall of 8chan but it seemed the board went down before then.

The original Crichton film and book had some criticism of capitalism and richfags.


It worked for literally one season where they had it all properly planned out in advance. 2nd and 3rd instantly degraded into L O S T tier nonsense. It also made sense in season 1 because it fit what they were doing. Nonlinear storytelling helped cement the point about how the hosts' minds worked, experiencing a memory by reliving it and having trouble telling when in the timeline they were because they couldn't distinguish past and present (at first). Doing that as a slow reveal also worked because you went in knowing almost nothing about the setting and it helped put you in the hosts' shoes. And then keeping all the humans mysterious made sense because you were "waking up" to everything along with the hosts. But once season 1 was over it just didn't make sense. The memory scrambling thing in season 2 was completely forced. The justification for it didn't really land and it was in service of twists that were just there for the sake of having a twist. At least season 3 dialed it back a lot but it's pretty obvious at this point the writers are out of their depth.

True, Ramin Djawadi knows how to write a theme song.


S1 is alright but not great, though I liked the soundtrack, but the rest of the seasons are lazy.

I only watched the first season but it was kinda fun


One thing that bothers me is that they use touch screen phones which i don't know if there are burner phones with touch screens but regular android/iPhone phones would expose their location easily to a corporation of super heros.

Loyal parents who sacrificed so much for the nation
Never feared the ultimate fate.
Now that the country has become red,
who will be its guardian?

Our mission, unfinished, may take a thousand years.
The struggle tires us, and our hair is grey.
You and I, old friends,
can we just watch our efforts be washed away?

I really wish Malcolm C. Lyons had found a way to make it rhyme. Many Arabic poems have rhymes and puns and they get lost in translation.


Chorus in Parentheses

(The danger looms, to our dismay,
We won’t be safe, night or day,
Hide the goats, the kids, the maid,
He’s on the hunt, and we’re the game…)

(It would be best to stay away,
Lest you become the monster’s prey,
He’ll tear you up, rip and fray,
And dine upon your ripe fillet…)

In the jungle, the murky jungle,
The lion prowls tonight…
Through savanna, swamp, and desert,

On the contrary, millar is the kind of lib who loves capes because it fits his view of western world police. The ultimates 2 exudes Bush era Americanism.



What the hell is this?

Maybe rather than complaining about poor people he should be complaining about rich people not giving adequate funding to all schools . Things like "high school ranking" are stupid. If all schools were properly funded then schools could all give IB and AP classes as options. People who study hard can still get all college credit and IB classes while people who don't study can coast on regular classes. School funding should become a state and federal thing rather than the burden being on local property values.



It seems like thats the problem he's describing. Lower income students means less funding means more rich people leave and creates a underfunded school that has less electives and chances for students to get opportunities in college credit.


Why is this discussion in a SUPERMAN thread?


>Muh Public Schooling
Public Schooling as a rule in the USA is garbage regardless, housing or not. In the Boston area? It's fucking awful most of the time. ESL has nothing to do with it, and if the system tanks because of a large number of illiterate immigrants, than that's a very fragile and shitty system to begin with.

>more rich people leave
They're not leaving anywhere LOL, they weren't going to nor investing in these Public Schools because the rich go to private schools, OR the Public School is just a token diploma path before jumping into college through some pocket-padded recommendations.


Pretty depressing honestly.


This comic is straight up unironic fascist propaganda and yet I love it. What are you guy's thoughts?

>It's satire
bruh unlike something like WH40KI never felt the "sike we're just joking around m8" with Judge Dredd. The writing seems to imply that the turbo authoritarian literal police state is not only a necessity but better than how things are nowadays safe for the random joke about 80% unemployment


It was definitely satire at the beginning at least, I haven't paid attention to recent volumes.


I was looking for this and found it here on a forgotten thread, neat.

I don't think it's a good idea, poster paint is generally pretty thin, would take forever to get an opaque layer on the wall.

a better option would be to find a secondhand contractor supply place (like habitat for humanity's ReStore) and buy an opened bucket of acyrlic housepaint.

as far as your UPS, a store bought shelf should be fine, as long as its anchored to studs in your wall (assuming you have drywall, it's different for masonry/concrete). You will definitely need both a drill and a stud finder to do it safely.

you could also pick up a shelf at ReStore for cheap. Check pawn shops for a good deal on a drill, its a popular item for resale by junkies etc, can often be got cheap.


but it isn't dangerous to use poster tho, right? like lead or breathing the air of it?

i just want cover up little doodles on the ugly spots, you got any ideas?


Guys my scooter tire is leaking air and I noticed its coming from one spot where the rim lip is bent a little. If I hammer it in will it work to stop the leak?


tried it, didnt budge the rim and only dented it more. This is why im not a handyman


It'll be fine I am sure, but you should post pics maybe next time
