General / Re: Film Thursday TOP 10 Best Movies 0f 2017
« on: Yesterday at 03:59 PM »
Only doing movies I've seen for that year:

1. It: Faithful adaptation, funny, charming, creatively twisted, expertly crafted on practically all fronts, enjoyable. 130 minutes just flew by for me. Saw it thrice in theaters and loved it the same every time.

2. A Cure For Wellness: Most underrated movie of the year. Incredible directing, cinematography, performances, score, visual style. Story could have had 20 minutes trimmed off, then it would have been perfect.

3. Dunkirk: A technical marvel, impressive with cinematography, sound design, and structure, if it was (albeit deliberately) lacking in the narrative aspects.

4. Baby Driver: Edgar Wright delivers yet again with a musical comedy-action with colorful characters and a kinetic visual style that coincides perfectly with the score. Some character motivations and narrative choices kinda bugged me, but enjoyable overall.

5. The Florida Project: Child performances are spectacular with fleshed-out writing and a stark, sometimes difficult sense of realism. It is definitely hard to watch and the ending could have been handled better, but I'm really glad I saw it.

6. Blade Runner 2049: Faithful to the original, great production design and performances, but it certainly didn't need to be nearly three hours long. I like Denis Villeneuve, but despite the movie's strengths, his directing style didn't seem to fit with the Blade Runner universe.

7. Coco: Definitely one of Pixar's higher-tier movies, even if it succumbs to the same tropes that often define Disney productions. Good music, voice acting, visual style, and humor, although the twists were predictable.

8. Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Dark, hard-hitting, and very well-written, with a handful of memorable scenes and some of the best performances I've seen in a while. About half of the humor didn't land with me, however, and at times it got preachy.

9. Phantom Thread: Daniel Day-Lewis gives a charismatic and genuine performance, the production and costume designs are gorgeous, and the score is absolutely intoxicating; it definitely got snubbed at the Oscars. Although it was the same length as It, it felt like three hours due to its numerous false endings and snail's pace.

10. Lego Batman: Yeah, I just had a blast with this movie. Joke after joke after reference after reference for a solid ninety minutes. Definitely in the guilty pleasure category, but I'd definitely watch and rewatch it again.

If youíre worried about losing data then put all the stuff you want to keep on a hard drive or flash drive as soon as you can.

I get Geoff has a life and a physical disease and all that, but an update every now and then is not too much to ask.

I'm so hardcore that I took a sip of plain coffee.

Pokťmon's not a cartoon. It's an anime.

« on: March 02, 2018, 07:47 AM »
Being better than who I was in the past, doing what I know makes me a better person (even if I donít like it at first), inspiring others to be the best they can be (or at least brighten their day), standing up for my virtues and beliefs, and having hard work, dedication, and passion pay off in the end.

General / Re: We need the Nub Barracks back.
« on: February 28, 2018, 07:45 PM »
I really don't see the harm in bringing it back. In fact, I'd prefer it.

As I said before, the Nub Barracks was cancer, but at least the cancer was contained and it was kept there for the most part. I've been seeing a rash of annoying and gross threads in General lately, and while they don't technically violate any rules, 1, people don't want to have to look at them and keep seeing them get constantly bumped, 2, I don't necessarily approve of having guests and new members seeing threads like "do you like the smell of your own farts" being made and getting attention, 3, people could have requested to make the Nub Barracks hidden to them, so, in the end, it was perfectly inconsequential to those whom it actually affected, and 4, mods would have dealt with annoying, disgusting, and spam-filled threads not by deleting them and sending warnings, but rather simply moving them to the Nub Barracks.

And let's face it, there are some members on here who would find it amusing to splodepost and be annoying and disgusting, and there are some members who would like to troll and add to the chaos and the degradation...why not give them an opportunity to do so? At least their crap would stay out of General and away from the older members who just don't want to look at it. They would have their own separate little world to act like little assholes, and no one else would have to feel obligated to look at it.

Bring it back, I say. The arguments against it I've seen are pretty weak and petty, imo.

We need to hold these sick splodes accountable for their violence against women

General / Re: We need a new board for splodeposting
« on: February 28, 2018, 04:26 PM »
I honestly agree. As cancerous as the Nub Barracks was, at least the majority of the cancer was contained within that board. Nowadays General is seeing a wave of cancerous content that just doesnít need to be there. Besides, it was amusing at times. Bring it back.

Might as well accept this, if you were considering extending the deadline.

Trust me, spoken debate is much easier for me than typing debate.

Iím literally the polar opposite. Iím a stumbling wreck in real life. Things elude me, I mix up my words, I stutter and shake uncontrollably...

Iíd be a terrible politician ;-;

Did anyone play this game back then?

I recently found my version for the DS and I've been hooked on it ever since. I remember borrowing and stealing my sister's iPod and playing it on there years ago. It's so much easier than I remember. Still lots of fun, very quirky and addicting.

One thing I overlooked was the soundtrack. It's got to be one of the most iconic and memorable in video game history. It manages to be bouncy and creepy and charismatic all at once, this earworm-inducing combination of chiptune, classical, and jazz.
