New Blade Runner 2049 trailer.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dZOaI_Fn5o4

Not a fan of this trailer. Firstly, why the hell does this trailer start with a 5 second trailer for itself?

I’m not averse to action at all, but the action scenes presented in the trailer seem fundamentally un-Blade Runner. I think that’s partly due to the way the trailer was edited. This trailer is trying to market the movie as an action film for mainstream audiences, so it follows the mainstream trailer formula. It’s always a landscape shot or two, someone talking (sometimes to another person), action clips with overbearing drums, repeat ad infinitum.

The cinematography is gorgeous and the soundtrack is killer, though.

I hate it when Chrome turns to shit, forcing me to uninstall and reinstall it. This happens to me every couple months; it’s a goddamn pain in the ass.

Turns to shit in what way?

Most often it refuses to open.

I have the same problem. Not necessarily with it refusing to open; but every few months, Chrome starts to crap out. And the specific issue it’s having is never the same, it switches itself up every time. I remember one time Chrome would instantly close when I tried to open it. A friend of mine has this problem as well.

I’m not offended, I just think it’s stupid. After seeing more responses it just seems like a big semantics game anyway.

I know this is going to piss you off, but this is another example of your privilege showing. It’s not stupid or semantics to the people it affects.

I’m not pissed off. I acknowledge their problems, I just don’t want to attribute them to an entire race or gender and take personal responsibility for them.

I don’t know why you think we’re asking you to take responsibility for a black man getting beat up by a cop or a woman getting paid less for the same work as a man.

But these things do happen because of their race or gender. Their race or gender, not yours.

Warbler mentioned something that I want to touch on too. Colorblindness should be everyone’s goal. If nobody even gave a thought to people’s color, then humanity would be better off. I don’t see why that’s now racist to say, but I’m never going to stop saying it.

Yes, it should be everyone’s goal. But until we have equality, we can’t just pretend there aren’t problems, and saying “I’m colorblind” signals that to other people. We have to see color until seeing color is no longer necessary.

I believe the idea is that everyone being truly “colorblind” would get rid of those problems.

Yeah, I know, I make the world such a horrible place right now.

This is the kind of shit that makes it impossible to reach a point of understanding.

No the kind sh** that makes it impossible to reach a point of understand are articles like the ones posted yesterday.

No.

Yes.

huh?

The world will never get better, Donald Trump will transfer his brain into a giant robot and lead the US invasion of Canada, climate change will turn this country into a Mad Max-ian wasteland within 2 years.

Oh god, Jeebus is one of those “circumcision is forced upon males against their will” people.

Not really. It’s not an issue I particularly care about, but I don’t see how you can disagree with the fact that it’s forced.

I’ve been playing a heap of Fallout 3 recently. I know it gets a lot of hate, but if this is the worst Fallout game, I can’t wait to play the best.

It isn’t, that would be 4. The best of the 3D is New Vegas, no doubt.

Really? That’s interesting, I bought PS3 New Vegas some time ago but never played it much. Sounds like I ought to revisit it.

It hasn’t aged very gracefully (the shooting/combat mechanics being the greatest offender), but it’s still an amazing RPG. I would recommend getting it on PC and modding it, but it’s just as good vanilla.
