Science Fiction or Space Fantasy - what is Star Wars
Time

genres are used to provide a classification for a movie, so in my mind they are fluid.

For example.

if you are trying to decide what part of a product catalog to list it in, you will be using one set of criteria, and will probably list it as Sci Fi

if you are talking to a friend and comparing Star Wars to any other sci-fi movie, you are then more likely to reach for more descriptive, specific genres, and will say that Star wars is more of a Space Fantasy than your typical sci-fi story.

STAR WARS but every shot comes from a random source
Time

Very interesting idea although the space shots are almost indistinguishable hahaha. The second half of Luke meeting Obi-Wan is pretty cool.

I think if there are some more low quality sources mixed in like 8 and 16 mm then it could really sell the differences in the space shots as well.

JEDIT I just noticed that you do list 8 mm.

Last movie seen
Time

Oceans 8

It was fine but very much felt like the fourth movie of its kind and not terribly original.

Mission Impossible: Fallout

Like all Mission Impossible movies this has a very fast driving plot which is probably overly intricate and confusing but let’s be honest as long as I keep being entertained I don’t care too much about what’s happening when or why. It was good but not great. the main thing against it in my book is that I’m a little tired of Ethan Hunt and his savior complex. Or is it Tom Cruise that has the Savior complex?

Warbler the thing I don’t understand is if there is ever a series the television anywhere in the whole world where it made sense for the main character to change from a man to a woman it is Doctor Who.

and they have obviously hinted at the fact that this could happen many many times throughout the series so I don’t really think you have any legs to stand on with your complaint other than the fact that you just don’t like change.

You realize he was just parodying you when you say you aren’t going to engage with insert poster right?

Also I must admit my understanding of DW is very limited, but HAS it always been a male? I thought it was kinda like a trill. Sure it always HAS been a male, but does it HAVE to be? I mean it’s not like Luke was suddenly a woman in the ST or anything, doesn’t the very gimmick of the series enable the doctor to be a woman sometimes?

The Doctor turned into a woman in The Curse Of The Fatal Death, which was a one off comedy special that aired during a charity telethon in the 1990’s. Coincidentally, that was written by Steven Moffat, who worked on the new version of the show until recently.

Non-canon as far as I know.

Yes, I’m just saying the idea has been around a while. If you count the Peter Cushing Dalek movies, the 1970’s stage play, and an animated web series, there are a lot of non-canon Doctors floating around.

If developers are threatening to remove code from the kernel because of they feel offended by a new code of conduct then they are definitely man babies and quite frankly I don’t give a shit.

I do agree that retroactive policing can be troublesome. But on the flip side being an a******and getting away with it and doesn’t give you a free pass for the rest of your life either.

Hopefully cooler heads prevail and people use common sense when enforcing the policy. No need to get all bent out of shape.

Jay, what trouble in Linux land are you alluding too.

I read about linus’ stepping away to work on his acerbic leadership style, but it seems like you are saying he was better that way? That sometimes to be great we need to be verbally abussive? Or put another way, that being verbally abussive is fine as long as you are great?

But you say that there is trouble brewing…

Also, anyone who called Sandy Hook a hoax and did all the shit Alex Jones did is a complete price of shit and shouldn’t be waived off like you just did. Seriously.

Or they can do what every loonatic fringe person did before the internet. Print out some leaflets and pass them out on a street corner, and write batsh*t crazy letters to the editor. Private companies don’t owe them a damn thing. I’m sure such people will find alternative means to spew their crap on the internet. Isn’t there already a twitter alternative catering to the people twitter is kicking off?
None of these cranks complained when they couldn’t get on anything other then public access cable tv.

This.
