Also, favorite podcasts?
What movies actually get better with each subsequent rewatch?
TDKR, at least the first six or so minutes anyway.
Honestly I haven't watched the full movie since it came out on blu-ray but the Baneposting Genesis Scene is certified 110% dank and continues to get danker.
Am I getting memed on or is this actually a good show?
What happened to him?
this. After tony found out he wanted to fuck Carmella he went back home, and tony said he had people looking for him and if found hes a dead man
of course, that doesn't count for shit because a group of half assed NJ mobsters don't compare to legit Italian mafia families
Would you ever buy replica clothing from a movie or TV show? I'm considering buying pic related, but all the replicas I find look like shit.
You won't look as good as the character that wore it in the show/movie, and you'll never not look cringey and try-hard wearing it as a result. If you really like the look that much, emulate the general style, don't copy the exact details.
1. It reduces a complex, interesting character with a variety of flaws into simply being a victim of the Purple Man. While Alias spent most of its time showing us Jessica's adventures without introducing us to Kilgrave, the show puts him front and center, and never goes more than 5 minutes without reminding us about him, what he did to her, and how obvious this whole situation is as a metaphor for rape trauma.
2. They fucked up Luke Cage. He's just a random black guy who owns a bar and maybe has powers in the show, rather than being a moderately famous vigilante who lives his life without a mask because he gives zero fucks. That massively changes who he is as a character, and how he works as a foil for Jessica's neuroses and desire to stay under the radar. They basically fucked up the chemistry for her primary (probably only, since MCU Scott Lang isn't likely to show up here) love interest.
3. They fucked up her best friend. If they couldn't get permission to use Carol Danvers (which is already stupid; she ought to be in this show), they could at least have used Spider-Woman, or maybe gotten Black Widow to cameo. Again, the contrast between Jessica, who slums it as a private eye because she wants obscurity, and her best friend, who is one of the leading members of the Avengers, is a big part of the character arc.
4. They made Kilgrave too important. He basically defines Jessica Jones now (how this show is getting kudos for its treatment of victimization is beyond me; it's a textbook example of what's wrong with how Hollywood writers treat sexual assault survivor stories). In Alias, and later The Pulse, Jessica had a rich tableau of people she knew, people she crossed, etc. She dealt with all kinds of scumbags, helped all sorts of people, and had a life. For the purposes of this show, she's just a victim of the Purple Man who now has to stop him while also being terrified of him.
It's a total lobotomy of the character, and kind of a shitty show.
>American character mentions Ukraine
>calls it "The Ukraine"
hey wanna know something funny:
nobody cares about or respects your up-jumped pretend country that's actually a wayward Russian county
We watchin Kimmel tonight? Da Star Wars cast gonna be on da show.
I recently watched With Bob and David on Netflix, and thought it was great. I've started watching Mr. Show now, which is also fucking hilarious.
What do you think, does the new show compare?
Bob and David general
the new show is quite good even by Mr. Show standards, really good by normal standards, and absolutely god tier by "reunion show" standards.
Salesman and Know Your Rights are the only sketches that make me cringe. They're not even bad. Just uncomfortable.
Still the best movie ever made.
Anakin Skywalker: You are so... beautiful.
Padmé: It's only because I'm so in love.
Anakin Skywalker: No, it's because I'm so in love with you.
Padmé: So love has blinded you?
WHAT DOE STHIS MEAN
I would put off Star Wars 7 till 2020 if It meant I could watch Batman V Superman right now.
