Oh sure Frink, you can try to excuse the Disney Rehash ™ but you will never out run the truth.

Han Solo in TFA is still exactly where we last saw him. Which is insane. I mean, seriously how long can you sit around an Ewok campfire smiling?

I dunno I’ve heard the ewoks have some crazy good death sticks

There’s a coworker of mine that constantly insults this sweet old lady that also works with us behind her back for being slow. She knows everything about the job and is very knowledgeable and a great resource for advice and very sweet but she is physically slow being well into her 60s and having poor health, so this other worker constantly makes fun of her behind her back and always proclaims how glad she is when she’s off or when she has to call in sick because “she would have just been in the way”. (Which is quite honestly not true she’s still helpful to have around) this old lady doesn’t hear her making fun of her our saying hateful things like that, so is it still wrong? I know this is a very harsh and extreme (though sadly true) scenario that you would never do, but I’m just explaining why things like this bother me.

You’re right, they should absolutely be fired for handing someone the wrong envelope about a fucking movie. I don’t know how I couldn’t see that. I’m sure everyone involved was akin to one of the stooges for this mistake.

Surely it’s not against the rules to simply restate things you’ve said. I’m not even saying you are an asshole in general just that you’re being one about this. I’m taking a break from this place. Goodnight.

If I had known it was going to make you this angry, I wouldn’t have said anything. Again, I ask you to please calm down. This isn’t worth getting that upset off. My opinion doesn’t matter that much.

Just for the record. I didn’t complain to Silverwook. He saw what you wrote and responded before I even saw it. I wouldn’t have reported it at all.

As far as I know, it is not against the rules to simply restate something I’ve said. If you wish to believe I am being an a-hole about this, you are entitled to your opinion. I’ll think about what you’ve said.

I know you didn’t and I’m not upset at silverwook for saying something because I knew it was a risky post. I know you didn’t mean any harm I just have a short fuse when it comes to insulting people over innocent isolated mistakes. If this same individual had ruined multiple Oscars I would probably feel different.

I’m sure you’ve made plenty of mistakes that aren’t being endlessly scrutinized and made fun of on the internet, let it fucking go you’re being a real asshole and I don’t care if it’s violating the rules for me to say so.

I think Price Waterhouse is in a lot of trouble for that Oscar screwup. Maybe the Academy could give the La La Land people a consolation prize? 😉

Whomever is responsible for the wrong card getting in Beatty’s hands, should be fired.

Yeah, they definitely deserve to lose their livelihood over handing somebody the wrong envelope about a movie. That’s a fireable offence if I ever heard one!

They caused the wrong movie to be announced as the winner. They embarrassed the Oscars and Price Waterhouse and caused difficult for the people involved in the making of the two movies. How you like to win a huge award, only to find out they announced you by mistake? How would you like to be the actual winner have your moment ruined due to something like this? Someone screwed up royally.

I wouldn’t like it, but I also wouldn’t seek to ruin the livelihood of the person who made the mistake, because I’m not a narcissistic asshole.

Is the forum slow as molasses for anyone else besides me today?

It’s working fine for me, so I’d say the problem is with you, possibly on a personal level as an individual.

LOL

Being hyperbolic, spewing buzzwords at people, yelling at them that they’re wrong about everything, calling them demeaning names, shutting down all conversation by calling someone a Racist! Sexist! Homophobe! Bigot! is why Trump won. People got sick of being patronised by people who refuse to step outside their own little echo chamber.

Out of everything you said, this one actually is a good point and it’s something that has always bugged me about democrats lately. I’m not saying I’m on the side of conservatives by any means, but very few of them actually are those things.

I think it’s a bullshit argument. You get called a sexist so you decide to vote for the most sexist candidate in recent history? Where’s the logic in that?

Some people take things out of hand with their accusations but most of them are coming from a reasonable place, but people just aren’t listening. It’s incredible how sensitive people on the right (and in general) are to criticism and refuse to believe that anything they do could be wrong or harmful. The hypocrisy of people on the right talking about echo chambers is overwhelming.

I wasn’t saying it excused voting for trump, I was only saying the name calling is not productive in converting people to your side. Not that conservatives don’t do it too.

and yet they could stomach voting for Trump???

More likely they didn’t vote at all because their candidate wasn’t available so they decided posting about it on facebook would be more productive.

Its just that the ROTJ alterations, while annoying and dumb aren’t nearly as damaging as the ANH ones to tone. In fact I like the SE ending. And while Jedi rocks is obviously terrible, at worst it really only made a part of the movie that was already pretty stupid a little more stupid.

I don’t remember why I thought that, but either way I don’t remember it ever looking very good even on my old tube tvs.
