In Triple Frontier you’re playing a former Special Forces soldier, and you worked a lot with a SEAL trainer. What’d you learn from that experience?

I really love the sense of seriousness with those guys—there’s no sense of life being trivial. There’s no flippancy, no triviality to those guys. They were just very, very serious. I really enjoy that. I’m a big fan of Jordan Peterson, as are a lot of people right now—he’s become quite an internet phenomenon, a card-carrying member of the intellectual dark web.

I love the message that he promotes, which is, “Take your life seriously.” Carry as much responsibility as possible. I think in his words he says, pick up the heaviest thing that you can and carry it.

Following the events of Pacific Rim, Raleigh was violently mauled to death by several kaiju while Mako made it back safely to shore.

Big fan of 'Carry as much responsibility as you can carry' being the core message of an ideology that promotes the idea women, minorities and LGBT people are straight white men's downfall, rather than straight white men's broad inability to accept their shitty behaviour and attempt to be better, more considerate human beings. Long awaited proof that the fuckboys don't have much upper body strength.

Behind you.
Oh no, not vanilla white guy #27!

Looks like all his roles will go to Jai Courtney! Or the dude from Avatar! Or Joel Kinnaman! Or Joel Edgerton! Or Jason Clarke!

Nah mate, I think I'm gonna take on as little responsibility as possible. I want to play The Division 2 and watch Netflix, not carry boulders around all my life.

I came in here thinking he played the THIS IS KATANA soldier in Suicide Squad but that was another blando.

Instead I find out that I can't watch Pacific Rim anymore? How will I cope...

Eh. Jax was such a piece-of-shit that I already kind of hate Hunnam for playing him. No big loss here.

Seriously, Jax Teller is one of the most despicable protagonists in TV.

Oh.

I just realized you used "canceled" as a reference to the Pacific Rim line. That's cool.

I see that Jordan Peterson thread pop up from time to time but it's so dense. Is there a concise summation on the distaste for him I can read?

What baffles me is how non sequitur it is

It's like he just felt compelled to let the world know he loves shitheads

Yuck. Yeah, that's going to be it for me with Hunmam's films.

SoA period was just utter irredeemable shit. I always say, it was one or two scenes from being a pure white supremacist power porn.

In all honesty he's not the worst person in the world outwardly but the people he's popular with is more concerning to me.
I see things here and there from him that strike me as innocuous, but I know the board's temperament about somethings and he's usually spoken of in a negative light, so I'm curious as to why that is. I don't know enough about him one way or the other. It sounds like he has very, very poor views of trans people

Well that's disappointing. Moving on tho.


I wish I could never hear someone utter / write the words “cancel” again
A phrase catches on and people beat it to death to sound trendy. Just a dumb back pat to make people feel like they actually did something when calling out someone famous.

Yikes, oof, cancel, drag aren't going away anytime soon. Unfortunately.

It blows my mind that anyone who listens to Jordan Peterson can come away that he's a smart individual. The guy spits vapid nonsense and uses lots of words to say absolutely nothing.


How is this motherfucker the face of right-wing intellectuals? You can feel the cringe from everybody in that room.
