  1. waddup Been looking forward to Hereditary for ages and I was SO hyped to see it this weekend, but now I realise we get it a week later than the US
  2. I agree with you overall, but I still think 2049 offered up a pretty compelling argument as to why life and consciousness are qualities determined by the person/thing in question and can't really be objectively decided by anyone else. Like if K and Joi existed in a vacuum without any interaction from the outside world, would their romance just cease to exist? I know Ex Machina recently explored similar things but idk, I liked the angle 2049 came at it a bit better And as a tangent to that, I really can't praise the character of Joi enough. She's so obviously digital that she really humanizes Gosling by comparison. So for like half the film you're like "I wonder if she really can feel anything towards him", and then it clicks back in your brain again that he isn't even a person to begin with. It just blurs the lines even further in such a great way
  3. Marky sort of alluded to it in his post but bruh https://www.pastemagazine.com/articles/2017/11/blade-runner-2049-knows-you-arent-special.html
  4. You didn't say it was impossible, you said it was pointless. Do you know what pointless means?
  5. That's just an extremely apathetic and lazy mindset to be in. Just because the brute force measure of literally taking everyone's guns away wouldn't work doesn't mean you should just call it a day and put up with these mass killings. It'll be difficult af to come up with a solution but saying it's "pointless" because of that is something that shouldn't even be part of the conversation
  6. I don't think you can do it outright by passing one law, but I think it's undeniable that there needs to be steps towards having less guns in the country. Again I'm speaking as an outsider so I don't wanna come across like I'm looking down on you or or the US w/ever, I'm just sick of these cunts taking advantage of ridiculously powerful weapons on innocent people
  7. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/07/world/americas/mass-shootings-us-international.html Any thoughts on this Cypress etc.? Seems pretty conclusive to me Like I said the other day, often the most difficult thing about these debates is that people are so set in their ways that overwhelming evidence to the contrary will only make them dig their heels in deeper. I hope you can actually give these numbers some consideration as opposed to just waving it off
  8. The odds of someone breaking into my house are literally thousands upon thousands of times more likely than a fucking military crackdown and I don't worry about that every time I go to sleep. If a cop acts maliciously toward you are you going to shoot them? In what scenario would you be firing back at them? That's just some irrational doomsday thinking imo
  9. To understand why people feel guns are so necessary when they are so very not necessary in countless other countries. In a very ideal world I can completely understand how they could be a normal part of life in rural areas, but it just seems like the benefits are no longer worth the trouble. A lot of people blame mental health and then a lot of other people blame guns, but I think any reasonable person can conclude that they both share part of the blame idk though I'm anything but an expert and I'm not even from the US, it's just an interesting subject also I knew you were messing with the deer post, I just figured you were trying to set me off or something and wasn't arsed going along with it haha
  10. It's not dumb practice, it's just a dumb reason for the argument at hand. Many laws will inconvenience people, but they are generally in place for the greater good and safety of the people (speeding etc.). And the benefit of someone getting free meat doesn't really outweigh the constant mass shootings you have, not to me
  11. And how would you feel about living abroad? Do you really feel like you'd miss them during everyday life? To me it honestly seems like some people enjoy hunting, shooting etc. and so don't want their guns taken away. I truly don't believe someone like Cypress is honestly weighing up the positives and negatives of guns being legal, and is instead just sticking with his pro-gun "team" essentially
  12. Genuine question but aside from the borderline impossible process of disarming *everyone* in the US, why do any of you want to hold onto your guns? Is it a principle thing? Is it just because you feel the US is a dangerous place? How would you feel about living somewhere like here in Ireland without any guns?
  13. People get uneasy around lethal weapons, whodathunkit
  14. The church recorded video every sunday too so there's almost certainly footage of the whole thing. Just horrible
  15. Not really, armed police seem to work reasonably well in a lot of other countries where guns are mostly illegal to the general public.
  16. John Carpenter is just the man. His films are so much fun but never feel ironic or even somewhat cynical like some newer genre movies do
  17. Yea Blade Runner was insanely loud for me, as was Mother. When I went to a music festival over in the Netherlands back in June almost everyone was wearing earbuds to keep their ears safe and I've been sort of conscious of that shit ever since. Some films and gigs are just too loud imo
  18. Pretty weak trailer imo, it just looks really ordinary for a PTA film. And I hope it works out for him but the cinematography (at a glance) looks like very standard period piece fare :/ Going back over Blade Runner in my mind and it's really solidifying my opinion that Villeneuve is surely the most exciting "commercial" director out there. I genuinely don't think there is a single person out there that gives me more confidence when they get attached to a project than him. It's pretty much between him and Fincher for me Of course I'm not including writer/directors like Coen bros, PTA, Wes Anderson etc., but even then I think he can hang with those names
  19. Finally got around to seeing Blade Runner and I fkn loved it. The last 20~ minutes were absolutely incredible
  20. I'm with Ender on Mother!, had such a fun time watching it
  21. Only finishing off my first listen to it but I'm loving St Vincent's new album
  22. Obviously the gameplan was to take Conor into the deep end and tire him out, I just think it's funny how people act as if Floyd did that out of choice. If the fight was really, truly as easy as some people are making it out to be it would've been over within 6 http://i.imgur.com/SEzvGpw.gifv You don't take shots like that for the fun of it. Clearly it was a few millimetres shy of being massively significant, but you're fooling yourself if you think Floyd was aware of that
  23. Everyone comes out of the woodwork to talk a big game once the fight is over. Get out of here mate, probably the second fight you've ever watched Anyway congrats to Floyd. I don't think Conor was nearly as adventurous as he could've been. I was really hoping he'd come in with a massively wide stance and fight as long and as slow as possible. But in the end he just tried to box the boxer and got put away Still took 10 rounds to put away a supposed novice though
