Politics 2: Electric Boogaloo
Time

Yeah party leadership is a bit different over here but there are sort of faces of the party, if you will, that help campaign for others and are sort of the more visible voices leading the charge. These will undoubtedly be Bernie, Warren, etc., but they only help so much as to raise awareness for and promote other candidates/the party strategy.

The originals are some of my favorites. They did a smart thing with the new ones to base them off the sequels, rather than the original. The new trilogy is easily the best in the series since 68.

I 100% think things would have been better the other way, though I will say the fact that Trump got elected means we have to own up to the fact he got this far at all, rather than just hide it under the rug and pretend everything’s okay. So yeah the activism and the increased awareness in current issues is probably the main positivity of note.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)

Meh. Can’t believe how little I cared about the movie. The problem was with the human cast, which was a big ball of yawn. Nobody stood out and everyone was just uninspired. The apes were pretty good but every time a human was onscreen I felt like I was back on Zion instead of enjoying my time in The Matrix.

5/10

Jeez, 5/10? The humans are definitely a weak link but they really don’t have that much screen time. Apes are the main focus and the main thing to care about.

Well if your only problem was boring humans, you needn’t worry about War. But the film in generally is much more similar to Dawn than Rise. If you liked the ape stuff though then you should be fine.

(it goes War>Dawn>Rise for me, all good)

Disappointing? War is absolutely fantastic, though I don’t know if I can say you’ll like it if you didn’t appreciate Dawn.

Not everybody needs to know the same things.

It’s not essential information, but a basic awareness of popular culture never hurt. I’m not even a Sinatra guy, but I know who he is and what his signature tune was.
The old joke about people who think Paul McCartney’s first band was Wings is being replaced by “Paul who?”

Yeah but I’m sure you don’t know stuff that people thirty years older than you might.

Or thirty years younger for that matter.

Like the stuff you like, don’t care what others think (or maybe introduce them to the stuff you like if you really mind).

“New York, New York” wasn’t even originally a Sinatra song.

See, we can all complain about something.

The Problem of Owen Lars would be a great book title.

Or … screw that rumored Obi-Wan Spin-Off … and make this instead:

The Problem of Owen Lars: A Star Wars Story 😉

I’ve suggested an Owen centric film at least twice before:

It’s not the Frink viewpoint in the same way it isn’t the Dom viewpoint or the yhwx viewpoint. It’s just a viewpoint.

wow shit

It has nothing to do with Frink’s viewpoint.

You could probably just make a thread for that (this isn’t really the place).

There are plenty of ways it could have worked. Despite some people’s need to hate anything that transpired in the PT, I think making Owen Anakin’s step-brother was a perfectly fine solution (that doesn’t mean it was handled well, but it is possible to separate the idea from the execution).
