This isn’t new for CPM “articles”. He is like the Stephen A. Smith of Io9. If you just ignore him, you take away his power.
Thank goodness you didn’t take the time to post the context of what he was posting there - from the article you linked about what he was posting - or people might realise how bad faith your argument here is. Read more
The butcher tells me that they put the slabs of bacon through a brine wash with celery extracts and then, “Into whichever sugar, and it cures like preserving meat in salt, like they ‘dry cure’ expensive caviars,” Read more
So it’s a web portal, presumably mass produced in Shenzhen like everything else, with presumably a custom built android interface, that will directly interface with the thousands of existing servers on the world wide web that they denounce as a bad thing, how exactly is this going to be more secure than anything else?… Read more
wouldn’t it be cool if these ultra wealthy dudes started companies that like fed or housed people instead of dick measuring via rockets
I'm guessing the doll that runs away from home in that What We Do in the Shadows synopsis is the Nadja doll, which is great. I am unreasonably excited at the prospect of her getting an episode focus.
this trailer reminded me alot of Bayonetta which is a good thing. though I can’t help but wonder if this game might have something to do with Parasite EVE since this game features a protagonist named EVE fighting parasites.
The Animatrix redeemed the entire universe for me. Every frame of it is a work of art. I think it is the best film in the franchise.
At age 31 I thought I had seen it all: Star Wars, Predator, Jurassic Park, etc...I went to see the Matrix on a business trip and left the theatre dancing two feet off the floor, as if I had never seen anything like it (the RATM outro song didn’t hurt getting me pumped up at the end). I know what you mean.
I’m not bright enough to delve into the deconstruction, analysis and critique stuff. All I know is that I’m 20 years older, I’m a middle-aged exhausted single dad, cynical and beaten down by life. And when I watched this I got the goosebumps and light-headedness caused by my brain doing parkour inside my skull I felt… Read more
My read is that this is a branch of history where Neo took the blue pill, and kept taking it. He’s continued living his false life, and it’s been mostly okay for him- but it’s now falling apart because you can only live a lie for so long before it kills you. Which ties into the trans-metaphor which ties the films… Read more
Pretty much all of this! I rewatched the first 3 back-to-back-to-back a few months ago and you know, there are some bits (especially in the third one) which are complete shite, but overall those movies still rule. This trailer is like the cinematic version of my favorite old sweater. It warms me up, it’s comfy, it’s… Read more
I think they stopped using it so much when the Wachowskis made a huge thing of it being a trans allegory, which shut them up pretty fast. I wouldn’t be surprised if things that were a bit more subtext in the original trilogy are blown up a bit here precisely to reclaim it.
I dunno if House of Leaves reminds me of a movie so much as a heavily-indexed website. I always suspected that the reason “house” was always in blue was because it was supposed to remind the readers of a hypertext link.
I think the canon-heavy episodes are actually the most enjoyable. This episode did a good job tying things together, and the story went in an unexpected way. Overall I thought this was a stronger season than people give it credit for, and it definitely ended very strongly.
