I’m gonna be honest, the way you worded that Jack Napier sounded like satire…and honestly I’ rather read it that way. I’m tired of cancel culture. Granted Idk what exactly has people up in arms this time but I have the sneaking suspicion it’s as trivial and agenda-driven as usual.

From what I gathered a comedian tapped by Netflix has made a transphobic comedy routine and has been quoted as saying that he loves offending people.

No film is as overrated as Avengers: Endgame. Great lesser-known films like Intolerance, Citizen Kane, Ikiru, Close Encounters, Gun Crazy, Parasite and 1917 are often overlooked because of cash grab CG blockbusters like this one taking up the market. So many major plot holes are often overlooked, especially the paradox of Steve staying in the past. Not to mention that all life in an alternate timeline dies to Ego’s expansion plot because the Avengers take Gamora from that timeline.

Not to mention the misogynistic plot points of frigiding Gamora and Natasha.

How do I get my hands on this delightful creation?

Click on the profile of the original poster and click create a private message, then write as your title the name of this thread, then in the message box write what you feel is best.

Unfortunately I don’t get an answer from the original poster.

Small details that took you <em><strong>FOREVER</strong></em> to notice in the <em>Star Wars</em> films

Two things from Vader’s Redemption/the Emperor’s Death

Right before Vader/Anakin picks up the Emperor (as he looks down at Luke one last time), Luke shouts “Father!” desperately one last time. And when Anakin does pick up the Emperor, the Emperor screams “Anakin, you murderer!”

That never happened

Albums keep getting deleted off of ITunes, which is going to force me to pirate them. Known examples are Star Wars and Robocop, as both have removed music albums.

As someone who recently spent three years without internet access (2017-2020), I can tell you this is why I’m not entirely sold on streaming services, and still see value in physical media. That’s the thing with online pirated media, you can save it to your hard drive and play it whenever you want to, whereas streaming is entirely dependent on your online connection.

There’s also region locking, which sucks like a black hole.

Also, Replace pirated media with free-license media and then we’re talking.

Yeah, region locking is the worst. I have an Amazon Prime account and there’s several movies and TV series I can’t watch due to region locking.

VPNS sometimes work.

Of course physical media’s main drawback is that it can take up a lot of space, another one being the environmental harm since we’re talking about disks made out of plastic. I very rarely play my music CDs these days and have digitally transferred all of them, but having them around means I have a permanent backup in case I lose my digital files, and that’s pretty much the benefit of physical media, you own that physical copy. I wish you could have the option to permanently save your media (music, computer games, movies) permanently to your PC without having to depend on an internet connection.

If anything, my three years without internet access have given me a newfound appreciation for physical media, and I lament the fact that PC games are exclusively digital downloads nowadays. That being said, nothing beats reading physical media, be they comic books, magazines, fiction novels, etc.

Apple does allow you to keep your music offline.
