Tbh I liked it at first but imo Rick is too much of an unlikable sociopath, Jerry is too pathetic, the show comes off as simultaneously too self-important and too mocking of its fans who overrate it.
Nonetheless it's overrated with absolutely autistic fans, and the whole sechzuan debacle, my God….

>The new guys are fine. You can tell the voices are different if you've watched this far and anyone who says you can't is a coping Redditor, but by the same token only seething Roilandcels would say they hurt the season. It's the writing.
A lot of the content in the show (at least half the jokes) was Justin Roiland riffing in the recording booth. So in a sense it is the new voice actors, or rather it's the gap left by removing the guy they're replacing. People forget that he's not just a voice actor. Him and Harmon were the creators/showrunners. It'd be like trying to do King of the Hill without Mike Judge.

First thread >>2278

I just watched the new Batman movie, it's about as boring and derived as you'd expect. The villain is a real psycho, apparently he hates Bruce Wayne's father because of his scam charity orphanage where children froze to death and the villain himself grew up in, and tries to publicly reveal his father's ties to organized crime and political corruption. Luckily Batman eventually teaches him the true meaning of love and forgiveness before the villain is thrown into an insane asylum for the rest of his days, and the credits roll.

I also watched Memoria, which was just as boring and I have nothing to say about.

1. It's just a fun movie with DeCaprio doing weird shit while being charming as fuck.

2. It's an interesting case study of someone with amazing abstract problem solving and people skills who uses their smarts to just accumulate random bullshit. The only fun thing in some rich peoples' lives is just hoarding and stepping on others. It's peering into the mind and world of someone very different from myself. A fun companion movie is The Aviator, another rags to riches story but focused on an autistic dudes obsession with airplanes instead of just being rich for the sake of it.

3. I love movies like this because they're a real character determiner. If I'm talking to someone about this movie at work or at a bar and they're like "Belfort is a badass, the government ruined his life!" then I know they're a fucking retard.

Emilia Clarke was at a huge disadvantage since she was trained for stage acting, not screen acting. When you're like 100 feet away from the audience you have to really exaggerate your acting, and it looks like shit when you do it 5 feet from a camera. That's the reason for everything she did being so over-the-top. You have to re-train to act for the screen, and she didn't for a while. She also had two brain aneurysms near the start of the show (between the first 2 seasons IIRC), and that will give anybody a hard time.

Fucking nonsense excuse, some of the best film actors in history began as stage actors. Stage acting is in fact what most modern actors lack.
>When you're like 100 feet away from the audience you have to really exaggerate your acting
No, you don't. That is today's modern take on stage acting and is why most stage plays I've seen in the past decades are fucking trash.
>That's the reason for everything she did being so over-the-top.
The Camera is right there, she's performing on a greenscreen or on a set a few feet away from the crew and director, which would be equivalent to small-stage. To be fair, even if she didn't realize this, the Director's role is literally to stop and correct her and make sure the take goes well, so she's not entirely to blame.
>She also had two brain aneurysms near the start of the show
Ah, I actually did not know that, in which case that at least explains the acting, even if it doesn't make it good.

Kit Harrington is the same as Emilia - modern "stage training" except he doesn't have her excuse of the aneurysms and what not.

I'm not being mean to her, she's probably a nice girl and probably tried her best, but her acting was still over the top.

Yes and they also learned how to act for the screen.
>Fucking nonsense excuse
No it isn't, when your muscle memory is a certain way you have to train yourself to do it differently.
>she's performing on a greenscreen or on a set a few feet away from the crew and director, which would be equivalent to small-stage
Idk what you mean by this, what theater stage has audience members sitting as close as a camera gets in a closeup?
> the Director's role is literally to stop and correct her
Correct. It's also something where if it's a persistent problem the production should hire an acting coach to help fix it. That doesn't change the nature of what she was doing wrong thoughever.

>that at least explains the acting

Probably she was too busy getting medical attention and recovery to get coaching needed to fix the issue.

>when your muscle memory is a certain way you have to train yourself to do it differently.
Yes and no. For example when Diving you train to breath with the mouth and not push air out through your nose, and unless you've got some problems in reigning yourself in, you can do this by merely staying conscious of the fact and proceeding carefully. The same can apply to acting, especially when she has a director there who should be reminding her of things. That being said, as you mentioned with her aneurysms and what-not, it's excusable in this case.
>what theater stage has audience members sitting as close as a camera gets in a closeup?
There is Small and Big Stage performances. Small Stage is when audiences are often right up close and the performance area is (obviously) smaller and up-close. I've been to a few in my time.
>He has the opposite problem if anything
I suppose in some way yes, though proper facial expression is also a problem I've seen in modern stage performances, either over or under acting a role/scene/character.

I have noticed a trend in 90s cinema where a disgruntled middle-aged white office worker takes revenge on society by becoming le epic sociopath and/or apathetic dissident.
I feel like it gives extreme license to the middle class fantasies of a recently politically-dispossessed population to start to become terrorists a la "hunter" and "the turner diaries", which is extremely prophetic of today's largely unhappy-young-white-man school shooters, beginning with columbine that shares galring comparisons to the matrix and the "trenchcoat mafia" motif in that whole scenario.
The fims i thought of were:
Office space - a disgruntled middle-aged white office worker decides to steal money from his boss, gets hypnotised into becoming le epic apathetic guy, falls for anti-intellectualism from his neighbour's "simple ways". The office is burned down in a political symbol that returns man to hard labour, where our protagonist is now happy being a beer-drinking idiot. Its ironic since mike judge also made "idiocracy" but idiocracy itself is an extremely elitist criticism of democracy. So we can see a fascist connection.
Fight club - a disgruntled middle-aged white guy decides to destroy society because modern society is bullshit, so he becomes le epic based terrorist who smashes the credit system to return mankind to hard labour and suffering, because at least that's "real".
The matrix - disgruntled middle-aged white office worker becomes part of a crew that helps destroy the system by shooting up banks, fighting homeless people who are "agents of the system", where anyone can be an agent and by esteeming to litersl super powers from this cyber-misanthropy.
American beauty - disgruntled middle-aged white office worker fantasises about having sex with a high school student, so starts to "sepf-improve". He leaves his job and becomes le epic based apathetic guy who sees through all of society's bullshit.
Falling down - disgruntled middle-aged white office worker becomes a terrorist who starts fucking with people because he has a gun (he just becomes a nazi stormtrooper basically), he has no class enemy, but just hates everyone, from public sector workers to rich golfers. Here we see a populist message thst just gives license to mindless angst, where the system is not blamed but the actors within the system are scapegoated.
Like i say, i think the political dispossession of white people, particularly white men has become a very touchy neurosisPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

The number of convicted felons in the United States is roughly 8% of the population. Black individuals make up 19% of felony defendants, which is roughly 1-2 million people across the country a year, which is consistent with their demographic size. White individuals make up 50+% of the felony defendants and are also consistent with demographic size. The argument you are hinting at is not confirmed by actual statistics. The proletariat are the ones that go to jail, their race doesn't matter to the system, the media only says it does because controversy and racial tensions interfere with united people's movements.

<Results suggest that cigarettes in China increasingly resemble those sold in Western countries, but with tobacco containing higher levels of heavy metals. As CNTC looks to export its product around the world, independent surveillance of tobacco product characteristics, including tobacco blend characteristics, will become increasingly important.
2010 article, tobacco bros…its over
I like how OP listed a bunch of fascist corporate "blended tobacco products" LITERALLY DESIGNED to be addictive and cause cancer, and targeted at vulnerable communities like blacks or gays or whoever.
Compare this to the not fully commodified regular tobacco leaves people smoke in pipes, which are admittedly a toxic pesticide, but probably not as cancerous as the "blended additive product".

Okay, weird anarcho-nihilist occultists, you got me.

I used to be a scientifically minded Stirnerite. But now I'm not so sure. I'm experiencing weird reflections of my thoughts in the material reality, like my thoughts are echoed in it, and it happens very, very randomly, sometimes it doesn't happen at all. What's going on? Are my thoughts able to warp reality or is some eldritch abomination mocking me? Am I living in a Lovecraftian universe? Do any of you mfs have an explanation for this? Because the explanation given will determine if your views are whack or not, I still approach all this with some scepticism. Like, all this spiritualism has such elaborate cosmologies but it never gives any concrete explanations to weird shit that my mind actually experiences.

Wtf even is occultism? How are aliens and ufos "occult"? Just a few years ago people called AI "occult". A german publisher released last year a compilation of Nick Land's writings in a book, they called it Okkultes Denken (occult thinking), implying Land's thoughts are "occult". But most of his writings are concerned with techno-science, so how tf is this occult??? Aliens and ufos are totally compatible with materialist i.e. scientific thinking, so what is occultism???

 No.40164

>>40158
Obviously calling UFOs "occultism" is an overreach, though Land did dabble into occultist practices and viewed the Capital as a literal god. I guess the confusion comes from ufology being pseudoscientific and its association with Lovecraftian horror or something like that, no idea honestly.
