Does Zak Bagans actually claim that a ghost/demon caused him to start wearing glasses?
I watched it purely because of the director. I loved Gerald's Game and Haunting of Hill House. He's now one of my fav horror directors ( though Doctor Sleep isn't really a horror).
i haven't seen either of those, so i may check it out. horror isn't really a genre i delve into often since its just flooded with crap and its hard to navigate.
Gerald's Game isn't really a horror movie, but it is fantastic and Carla Gugino is awesome in it (and it's also based on a Stephen King short I believe).
See I was so uninterested and tired of King stuff I completely missed it was from the director of haunting of hill house. Will definitely give it a go when it's on streaming services.
Seriously! And then they decide to not talk about spoilers after showing those clips its like 'uh....' lol
I love that they ripped into that rambling asshole complaining about Parasite.
I’m sure they’re going to catch flack for this but I also appreciate they pointed out the irony of the excess of the Oscars and celebrity in general, contrasting the speeches talking about conservation and causes.
Not to say that what Joaquin and others said isn’t important, but some of them seem more like the real deal than others.
Nah, this video may actually be the breaking point for me. I've looked past a lot of shit they've said and done, but this Half in the Bag went too far and revealed their specific brand of white liberalism. The video of the rambling racist asshole is merely cover for them to spout their own racist and misogynistic crap. No, Hollywood is not hypocritical when actors and actresses call out racism and sexism. The attempt to undercut Joaquin's powerful speech with the fact that people in Hollywood tend to have money misses the entire point. What the fuck does that have to do with inclusivity and decreasing racism and sexism in the industry? Why, again, the dismissing of Brie Larson's concerns regarding the homogeneity of film critics?
The opinions of some on this board reminds me of getting the bad ending in the first Bioshock. If you make one bad choice you're stuck being an evil psychopath forever.
They were wrong the first time and they were wrong again. It's frustrating to me to see Mike fidget with his hands and knick-knacks as he speaks about things making it more from-the-heart than the jokey bullshit they occasionally say and so it comes across as their actual stance on this. The idea that privilege should deny someone an opinion versus giving them a platform is just kinda tired. Joaquin Phoenix grew up in a cult and wants a far better world. Brie Larson wants to see more women of colour in the film reviewing sphere. It's not diabolical.
Haha videogames, yeah, they sure are a thing. But if this is to suggest that RLM made a single slip-up and is getting dragged over the coals for it, you couldn't be more wrong. In fact, the post you're replying to is closer to suggesting the opposite than what you said.
The interesting thing about this meme is, Harrison Ford was doing a scripted bit.
I skipped the Parasite portion of the video because I haven't seen Parasite yet. Looks like I dodged a bullet if I'm getting my name invoked about being tired of their bullshit lol.
Ugh, really? Why do they keep doing this bullshit? I think it might be time for me to stop watching, at least for a while. I'm much more enjoying positive channels like Game Maker's Toolkit or CinemaWins and think I need to step away from pessimistic channels.
in this review they're really explicit in their beliefs. it's that, hey why not let your movie speak for itself about social issues - you don't need to be preachy with the platform you're given, actor (they also go off a bit on joaquin phoenix for his oscar speech as being meandering). it boils down to wanting to treat movies as stories (i think mike calls the general conflict in parasite a fairytale - that of rich vs. poor). they were really happy that when given a platform, bong joon-ho was just very thankful for the award, and criticized the hollywood people, who they feel talk down to their audience.
i refuse to buy those books in physical form because at some point some idiot said we should switch the title and the author on the backbone and make the series look super weird and inconsistent on a shelf
they wanted you to buy the limited edition and fork over that $$$i refuse to buy those books in physical form because at some point some idiot said we should switch the title and the author on the backbone and make the series look super weird and inconsistent on a shelf
just go back and do the same thing with the first few books in new printings it's not hard!
maybe he got confused because it was on the Sci-Fi channel
Its actually great
