The gulf between the best and worst ‘I Think You Should Leave’ sketches is pretty huge, but I can watch my favourite ones over and over for how well constructed they are. I love the slowly building insanity of the laser spine specialists sketch. (“Your family hates you! Only I love you!”)

It’s crazy how true that’s become for me. I still play a lot of games, sure, but just following what’s going on in the industry takes up more of my free time than actually playing things. (at least on off years like this one, where only a scant few releases really grabbed me) Read more

Good info, thanks! I got it from Netflix way back when I got DVDs, but I haven’t seen it since. Good to know it’s still out there. Read more

Yeah I hate having to hook up my PS4 to a capture box to get a screenshot because my only other option is to dafs afsdfas afadsfas

I’m curious how he got that screenshot. In most games you’d just hit the Share button but for this... it clearly has a different function.

Welcome to the internet. It’s basically shit, but every once in a while you see a boob.

This was a lot less fun than I was hoping. Of course the internet isn’t going to let an opportunity to be pedantic go by.

I think Watchmen gets the nod as “best” because it tells such a self-contained story that is obviously a comic about comics where knowledge of comics is helpful but also not a requirement. Sandman comes close to this but the awkward beginnings of that book tried to connect it to DC of the time. ( and I suppose that Read more

What if I think that Snyder was trying to make the uncomfortableness the point but that he’s neither talented enough nor able to examine his own fetishisation of stylised violence to make it work? Do you still need to avoid me? (It’s easy enough to do so.)

You couldn’t intentionally make a photo look that sad. Everything about it seems to have been positioned for maximum ennui, especially that half empty juice bottle in the foreground.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s also very revisionist to say that people claiming satire have only being doing so for the last few years. Yeah some people missed it on first release (as they did with Robocop), but plenty spotted it.

ST satire, as well as it’s targets, are pretty clear: jingoism, fascism, blind loyalty to a warmongering government, the othering of one’s enemies, governments’ and military’s use of propaganda to sell war to a people and a quick, violent death to young people, and how easy it is to convince ourselves that we’re the Read more

I think the satire is pretty clear. All of the characters in that movie are meat for the grinder in an unwinnable struggle, and they end up cheering like idiots instead of realizing their fate.

Satire doesn’t need to be subtle, and the way the propaganda aspect is played out is the satirical part of it.

I always thought that scene was surely supposed to be funny, but I read so many people complaining about it that I guess it was supposed to be serious? I think it’s the second funniest sex scene ever filmed (next to the Lindsey Lohan sex scene in I Know Who Killed Me).
