Thought Jay was overly negative tbh, but the best HitB episodes are the ones where they disagree.
I haven't seen Joker or the HitB yet, but Mike would drink raw sewage if it had schlock in it. Dude loves trash.
I think Jay has something against Todd Phillips and it went in with him when seeing Joker. I really liked what Mike had to say. Didn't really think about it being the "inverse" of the Batman origin.
Yep, this somehow completed passed me by hahaI think Jay has something against Todd Phillips and it went in with him when seeing Joker. I really liked what Mike had to say. Didn't really think about it being the "inverse" of the Batman origin.
Anyone watch that Jack stream with the Escapist yet? I wonder how he is when he isn't reading random tips and talking about movies/editing/talking with Jay.
Near as I can tell, Escapist was an internet videogaming news site, and then Gamergate happened, and the site's owner went full Gamergate, which turned the site into a shithole, and then the site crashed and burned.Shame that Escapist is where Jack is going. They are aggressively "no politics" in a very political way.
...Unless something has changed and they've improved in the last 8 months, in which case, please inform me.
I know you all will have a lot of questions about the future of Escapist, but for the most part, I’m going to let our content do the talking for us. You can make your judgments based on the merit of our work.
I know the history of The Escapist and I have no plans to retread it. We’re charting a new course here, one that’s focused on positivity, maturity, and inclusivity, while offering a place of escapism for those of us that want to read and talk about gaming, entertainment, and the culture that surrounds us all.
Moviebob is anti-Gamergate, and he apparently recommended the new Escapist to Jack, and Jack to the new Escapist, so it should be fine.Everyone is welcome at the Escapist, but we will not tolerate any personal attacks on our editors or other community members. The same goes for hate speech, racism, bigotry, threats of violence, or targeted harassment. We will foster a positive community where users can have open discussions without the fear of being attacked by bad actors. We’re not the old Escapist and our code of conduct reflects that. I hope you’ll support the moderators in their work.
We will work with the community to continue to reestablish ourselves as an outlet that you’re proud to visit.
Joker is very competently made. You can critcize the script and certain other aspects for sure but on a technical level the movie is top notch. A hack he is not, clearly. Not any more at least.
The very first frame of the movie is Joker in between a big window with bright sunshine and clouds and another window with a dark, brick building. Get it? gOoD vs eViL!!! That's 100% hackneyed film school level garbage. I can't stand that stuff. He's awful.
Jack is at Escapist now.
Maybe he didn't want the expectation of RLM talk. I think they really didn't talk about it with the livestream he just did. He also gets the added audience of The Escapist's subscriber count. It looks like that is completely held up by Yhatzees content though. Looking at view counts outside Yhatzee the videos seem to average 30K to 60K and Pre Rec reviews did 80K with a lower subscriber count (and a shout out by the official RLM Twitter account).
He was in 3 eps.
There was an explosion that "killed him" in that episode.
I posted the video of that.There was an explosion that "killed him" in that episode.
Suder was a psychopath whom even futuretech couldn't cure (even though they had cured all forms of psychopathy, but not Suder's unique brand of it). So he joined the Maquis so he could direct his homicidal urges in positive ways, towards people he was socially allowed to kill (the Cardassians). After getting roped into boarding Voyager with the merging crews, he went too long without killing, so he killed a random redshirt, just because he really really needed to kill someone. He got thrown in jail (aka confined to his quarters), which he agreed with, because he doesn't like being a killer.
When the Kazon attacked Voyager, his quarters got blowed up, and he was presumed dead. But he was hiding in the duct work, and the explosion merely broke the lock on his door. When the Kazon cleared the ship, he was overlooked, because presumed dead.
"Wow Suder, you've done a great job of eluding the Kazon invaders. Your new mission: Relapse, and kill the fuck out of everyone so we can have our ship back."
Suder kills everyone and then gets shot in the back by a dying Kazon. Problem solved! No more loose ends for Janeway to clean up.
