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?

Honestly I wouldn't even notice any loose ends being tied up or not at this point.

I dunno I'm kinda tempted to stop reading but like I say I like the shipping and I wanna play those troll dating Sims.

 

>>42325

>>42326
I don't have especially great memories of the latter half of problem sleuth so yeah idk maybe. But I'm an unemployed waste anyway I have nothing but time

 

>>42327

Let's make a thread to discuss, review and analyze tv shows. Everybody is binging something these days.
Argue about dvd commentaries, Post your thesis on King of the Hill, Reminisce about a tv show you used to watch but don't quite remember it's title. Just about anything related to shows. Post your highscore on those Ben 10 CN flash games. Anything goes.

I finally finished watching Schitt's Creek. I could've swear that show finished after the pandemic

Well, the thread's about to be over too :)
What a bombulating experience

 

>>41476
Wow. How did they train these kids to say that stuff

Was the entire show just kids

Was expecting some comedy in this but it just a drama with incessant fourth wall breaking. All the "comedy" boils down to lady doing funny face.

 

>>41708
every annoying woman online loves this show

Who's watching the Sympathizer
It's intriguing

Being a spy sucks man, you do big stuff, and even your own side don't know about it

Been bingeing a few of these. Most are extremely low effort, and it's overall a bit of a forced subgenre, but some stuff can be genuinely spooky.

Meh. Derivative. 3/10 imo.

 

>>40839
The picture of the boiled one next to the house really fucked me up, though. And my lizard brain still gets fucked up by the cheesy concept of cognitohazards. There's some good stuff in there messed up by a flawed overall structure.

 

>>40830
i mean, the art is really good, it's just not unsettling or even scary. analog horror focusing too much in religious stuff kinda wash away the horror it could be (but idk, horror in video format is a bit "dull" – unless you count jumpscare as horror)

 

>>40858
Analog horror is kind of defined a lot by visual elements. But yeah, the people that make them need to learn how to do horror narratives better. Read some books, maybe.

:Broadsword Edition:

>What is HEMA or WMA?

Historical European Martial Arts or sometimes Western Martial Arts are attempts at decoding, studying, and practicing the history, art, and fighting of everything from the Medieval Period to Early Modern Combatives.

What traditions are you lot studying at the moment?

Me? Going through George Silver's "Paradoxes of Defence" to expand my regimental broadsword/sabre repertoire.

Could I dual wield gauntlet shields?

 

>>42169
It'd probably harder to manipulate quickly and skillfully than it looks. But theoretically yes.

i think the opposite, that "unique" doesnt automatically mean good, or rather, its not as clear cut as that. i disagree with the idea of "expressing yourself" via your clothes too tbh

Does this mean that I can detectivemaxx and engage in tactical espionage action in the same fit?

thicc frames have always been seen as dorky i think
wire frames have the benefit of metal=shiny and being more understated i think

 

>>42299
The more fashion conscious prefer thick frames while wire frames are nowadays associated to self-conscious nerds

>>41874
Yeah, except some of the dialogue between Gibson and Vaughn (which btw is so stereotypical reactionary boomer talk, that I'm not even sure if it's meant to be a parody or something), I don't get why this gets mentioned as a right wing movie. It's not like these reactionary cops are portrayed sympathetically at all.

This is the capeshit film thread
Discuss capeshit
I'll admit I hate Marvel films, first off they're some of the glowies films out there, every single one fellates the Pentagon. The plots are almost all identical, filled with general pro-porky propaganda. The jokes are overdone and stale, literally Adam Sandler humor. The CIA is shit for such expensive productions. The characters are getting stale. Fuck these movies, death of cinema shit piles.

Super is weirdly apocryphal the main character is literally a chinletjak. Its the most realisitic super hero movie imho since its just a schizo christofascist who doles out unnecessary violence on lumpenproles until the end where they face off with actual organized criminals and sidekick literally gets there head blowed off. I didn't like the ending at all and thought it was a forced happy ending. Its a weird ass movie but viewing as a satire on /pol/yp LARPers is pretty funny

 

RIP Rogue's Ass

Funniest part is that most of the men are still muscular.

Also inb4 "Muh mutants and Rogue were meant to represent the gay struggle"
Stan Lee literally created the idea of Mutants because he was tired of creating hundreds of backstories for the superpowers his characters had, so it was just "the X-Gene" and it let him create characters more freely… that's it, that was the entire motivation behind the X-Men. And the idea of alienation and wanting to be accepted by society is a universal concept among all people. The flamboyant designs are also just because it was cool, and literally applies to most superheroes in DC and Marvel that have no relation to the X-Men. If gay people identified with it, then good for them, but it wasn't intended to be specific to any one person or group, and people trying to say that are projecting their own political views onto illustrated power-fantasies for children and teens.

 

IMO Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is probably the best version of the Avengers. Venxous has a good video series on the individual characters and generally its pretty well made for a capeshit cartoon series.

Also the intro theme slaps.

>Aang could use perhaps some Spirit bending thing to demonstrate to Ozai the things he saw and felt, hiding in the Fire Nation and other nations, the squalor and hatred and abuse and death and misery, all wrought by has actions even for his people. To demonstrate that his idea of conquest brought nothing but destruction and would eventually destroy him too.
Kinda reminds me of the climax from The Crow too

 

>>27724
That would also be a payoff to the globetrotting stuff throughout the series, bringing back the side characters for some kind of spirit vision he forcibly takes Ozai on. It would be like how Roku had done with Aang throughout the show, demonstrating Aang fully becoming the Avatar's role as a guide. The climax of Aang's spiritual character arc being just another neato power is a lot less interesting than some kind of empathy based power that uses his connection to the "world spirit" to "fix" Ozai by re-connecting him to everyone else. Even if he still technically wins just because the experience overwhelms and incapacitates Ozai until the comet passes.

 

Started watching Avatar with my gf. The episode with the "freedom fighters" plotting to take out a dam caught me off guard. I was not expecting a kids show to touch on such topics, even through a liberal lense.
