Sandra Oh is also one of the two headliners in “Killing Eve”, one of the buzziest shows around right now.
I read it was the first thing. It makes sense in a mercenary way - you can cancel something and claim it was a disaster not of your making and that it’s better to take the hit now; or risk a hit that also wasn’t of your making, taking years of resources away from projects that WOULD be yours to take credit for.
This could have some racial undertones; the sign they drive under on the way to the festival is a political sign from a Far Right white power-group decrying immigration and how it’s destroying traditional Swedish culture.
Yeah, the thing is that up until the gore and drugs, it all looks like a fairly standard Midsommar to me. But yes, maybe the writer was referencing whatever it is that only happens once every 90 years in that village, during the normal Midsommar festivities. In that case “obscure” is the wrong word though; you…
The Midsommar-festival is anything but obscure in Sweden, the country literally shuts down. It’s celebrated all over the US as well by people with Swedish ancestors, quite often it’s the only tradition still left. “I don’t personally know about it” isn’t the same as “obscure”.
Hang on, you’re both operating on a false premise;
...except that one of the things that keep recurring in tales from people who’ve been in war-zones and starving as their most traumatizing memory is how they would start salivating at the smell of burning bodies. So saying they “shouldn’t get hunger-pangs from watching someone eat bacon” is just stupid.
That’s pretty much it, yeah. It’s got that Roddenberry wide-eyed wonder and optimism, a bit more humor, but can also be surprisingly affecting at times. ST:D (oooooohhhh I just said that acronym out loud and noticed something!) is trying to be all grimdark and broody. I still like it... but I prefer The Orville.
It’s also an established location in Norway in this world.
It was *filmed* there. However, the sign outside the town literally states they are in the (real) town of Tönsberg, which also has the very real place “Asgardstrand” right outside it (“Asgard” meaning “Mountain Ridge Estate”, “strand” meaning “beach”).
I watched it in a Samsung TV (using HBO Nordic) and it was utterly fine.
Step 1: Summon Satan
To be fair though, Speed 2 was shit and The Devil’s Advocate is incredibly enjoyable hokum; and even though he was far from the first choice, he then made The Matrix.
If I had a nickel for every time I saw something on Reddit and came up with the perfect joke, and then when I went to comment saw at least fifteen people thought of the same joke, I’d be a millionaire.
Definitely matchmake with a group, it’s easy to do and yields results... but a tip is to get the Revive-hive and the assault drone as your skills, and then maybe use the demolitionist Specialization. If you got to the desk and “respec” your skill (and you can respec it exactly the same as it was) you get full special…
Yeah, I actually bought Ubisoft stock on the expectation that they will now start making more games using the template set by The Division, but with other settings - that’s what Ubi does best, re-iterating once they’ve found a system that works. And Division 2 certainly works, far better than any MMO I’ve ever played.
I do wish the could have just added a scientist discovering that surviving the Green Poison can affect the frontal lobes or something. Just to explain why so many people went full crazy the second they got the chance.
This sequel has a weird mix of an absolutely bungled main story, and incredibly detailed and enjoyable stories told through the missions and environments. I can still remember details of the main story of the first game, where I actually cared about some of the supporting cast; in this one I couldn’t even remember who…
It took me a really long time to understand this issue, because as a white guy I just don’t get the fuss. But that’s the point: I don’t get it, because I never had to. That’s what “white privilege” is, in large part. It was, of all things, the “South Park”-episode where Randy says the N-word on TV and Stan tries to…
That is genius. Also, I feel like Affleck’s bouts of depression started right around the time he had his falling out with Smith (which to be fair did seem to be Smith’s fault for being a gossipy SOB). It’d be nice if they could make up, and this would be the perfect way for Affleck to exorcise some batdemons!
