Anime girls are not cute, and never will be.

On a side note, while sexual depictions in anime aren’t inherently wrong, it’s done way too much.

One thing that bothers me about animé female characters is that most of the Japanese voice actresses speak like flirty 15 year old girls.

Ugh, yes. It almost fits the racial stereotypes.

Draco Malfoy was never redeemable the way a lot of the Potter fandom thinks he is.

Every Back to the Future movie is equally great in my opinion.

The first Austin Powers movie is by far my least favorite.

There are plenty of good AVGN episodes from the Screenwave era (2018 on). Town With No Name is among the best, and the Home Alone episode was awesome as well.

2001 is overrated (mostly)

I’m not really that much of a movie purist. I really should’ve thought my name out a bit more.

It’s definitely a film that has stronger visuals than story.

Villeneuve’s Dune is not an improvement on Lynch’s version. For everything it does better, there’s a roughly equal amount it does worse. Quality-wise, the two pretty much balance out. Though I’ll always revisit Lynch’s film; I doubt I’ll watch Villeneuve’s again, even after Part Two comes out.

What bothers me the most is how many people are hailing it as the definitive Dune adaptation.

I’m sorry, but if there’s one thing the 1984 has over Villeneuve’s is that it fully embraced the book’s inherent weirdness, whereas Villeneuve seems ashamed of it and we’re left with a very bland movie.

I present the Jamis fight as Exhibit A for why the movie fell flat for me. In the source material, Paul sheds tears after killing Jamis. In this movie, he hardly seems phased by it at all.

I’d seen three of Villeneuve’s films beforehand — Maelstrom, Arrival, and Blade Runner 2049 — and all three are emotionally and visually gloomy. That style may suit the world of Blade Runner, but I always envisioned the Dune universe as a more vibrant, resonant setting.

Villeneuve’s customary choice of a desaturated colour palette only adds to the lifeless look of the movie.

If you just look at The 1st Album by Modern Talking and a “best of” for Blue System, Dieter Bohlen isn’t that terrible of a pop composer. It’s just that the guy valued quantity over quality so much that he decided to produce the same kinds of songs over and over again.

He’s still a terrible lyricist, no matter what you look at (both in English and German versions).

I prefer NiN’s Hurt to Johnny Cash’s cover (which is still fantastic). I personally find the original more relatable.

NIN’s version feels like the bitter end of a man’s miserable life, whilst Johnny Cash’s version feels like finding peace in the end after a lifetime of suffering.

I have zero interest in anything Harry Potter — books, movies, spinoffs, whatever. I’ll never read them, never watch them. And no, my apathy’s not because Rowling’s a sack of transphobic protoplasm; that’s just the anti-icing on the counter-cake.

I only liked John Williams scores. For Harry Potter. Never was a fan of the books. Watched like 3 of the movies on cable.

They were about average. They made tons of money though, that is all they care about not film quality.

I couldn’t be bothered to watch the newest one even for free, in the fantastic beasts franchise. I think i wasted time watching one of the others, it was just okay, i think it was the first one.

I sort of despise cash grab sequels. And remake sequels. All of the ones being made now. The Jurassic World, the Disney Star Wars Trilogy etc. Even though i think Last Jedi has some brilliant points in it, and some beautiful scenes. I don’t think i will ever be able to watch the JJ films again with any level of enjoyment.

The teaser trailer for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever didn’t make me cry. In fact, I found it to be a cynical attempt at inspiration that exists to manipulate the viewer because of Chadwick Boseman’s death.

Also, the slow, inspiring version of all your favorite songs in every trailer over the past decade needs to die.

I have altered Lucas’ visions. Pray I don’t alter them any further.

Speaking of the above comment, superhero movies, and superheroes in general, have overstayed their welcome. They were made as depression/wartime inspiration nearly a century ago and now seem to solely exist for the big bucks and mindless entertainment.

MCU really stands for Milked Cow Udder.

I’m so fucking sick of superhero nonsense topping the film charts. It’s the most basic, unoriginal and bland form of entertainment nowadays.

The Boys is the best remedy for that.
