Today I learned "chucklefuck" is actually a word.
Pretty much why "Kiksuya" was such a great episode last season. No need for twists, just character and story.
Because usually when a parent or SO says that, it means something bad XD
I appreciated it because I didn't watch the show, I'm just here for the trainwreck.
We need to talk about excessive amount of chromatic aberration in Bloodborne.
Why should she "walk back" on talking about the sexist circlejerk that surrounds the Twilight series for any reason? She was right, and it needed to be said. This mentality that targets need to embody the perfect victim and be character checked before deserving acknowledgement is harmful garbage that poisons every discussion about sexism. Maybe you should reflect on that, because, oof, not a good look.
Correct but your forgot the best part. They created a character with a powerset just to handle the recon. Waverider, when he touches someone he sees their future, but it also makes it so that future is less likely to occur now. So he happened to touch Captain Atom and see him as Monarch....the rest is historyOn The Westworld thing Slayven so he can correct me
This reminds of an event DC did in the 90s called Armageddon 2001. which had powerful villain, Monarch from the future and the story was a mystery of his identity.
Basically one of the people that was investigated as potential Candidate, Hawk was investigated and found out it couldn't be him. Apparently in the future he was fighting the villain so it couldn't be him and other stuff how couldn't be the villain like his character being different and not having the means to do so. However people in the real world through a leak figured out that the villain was Captain Atom.
Of course they already set up Atom as being the villain and not Hawk but they had to surprise readers and suddenly the story didn't make sense
Because it's usually a veiled "Hey that thing you like sucks and I'm gonna make myself seem woke by pointing out some pretty obvious flaws that most fans can live with" rant.
This video is a total waste of time. She didn't have a single interesting or revealing insight that hasn't been regurgitated an nauseam in the last month by dozens/hundreds of outlets.The first 20 minutes is just a snarky recap of ALL 8 SEASONS. I have no idea why this was deemed necessary, as none of her other videos really seem to do this. Skip to around 21:15 for actual discussion and analysis of the show.
It's hard to discuss the idea of how having "an ending point" messed up the show, because it's unclear to me at what point Weiss and Benioff actually learned how ASOIAF was actually meant to end, and the details that needed to be included along the way.
I mean I will say as someone with basically no knowledge of the show beyond it being that "HBO incest fantasy thing" that the recap was mostly helpful in contextualizing stuff though I agree there's not much of any novel analysis here beyond comparing its approach to other prestige TV (including other prestige incest TV)
I think some sort of recap is in order just because people that binged the show probably have trouble differentiating between what happened when and in which season, but a 20 minute recap is way too much.
Yep, this was r/freefolk: the video. Enjoyed it though.
Don't think there's much to say that hasn't been said by 2000 other Youtubers already. Season 8's catstrophy isn't some mystical enigma, everyone and their mom can figure out what went wrong with this shit.
If I were to give the most generous spin on the quote, Benioff could have meant that it isn't necessary for writers to be purposeful in creating theme with the implication that it can arise naturally from the writing. Still, it reeks of a man whose interest in ASOIAF was that it could surprise and shock the audience rather than the things the series is actually good at.The writers have stated that "themes are for 8th grade book reports", which is so wrong on so many levels that it's hard to fully explain just how dumb that statement is. Not surprisingly, treating basic coherence with contempt leads to, as you said, mind-bogglingly bad storytelling.
I don't know where that mentality comes from either. To me, it smells too much like these people felt like paying attention to the plot threads of the story was too much work, so they threw all that out the window, pulled whatever they wanted out of their asses, and hid behind this "we're too good to pay attention to themes anymore" bullshit attitude as a way to run from all criticism.
the recap exists so that people like me who don't watch the show can still watch the video. I thought that Ellis' video was pretty good. Sure, maybe a million other videos cover similar territory, but those other videos tend to be for people who watch the show so there's no reason for me to watch them.
I certainly tried to tell myself that's what he meant but Season 8 makes it pretty clear he meant exactly what he said.
I'm not sure if some 4 quips-per-minute recap is really going to give you any kind of good context for story discussion though. It's like going to a CinemaSins video to learn the plot of Inception.the recap exists so that people like me who don't watch the show can still watch the video. I thought that Ellis' video was pretty good. Sure, maybe a million other videos cover similar territory, but those other videos tend to be for people who watch the show so there's no reason for me to watch them.
