  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. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Finally got around to seeing Blade Runner and I fkn loved it. The last 20~ minutes were absolutely incredible
  8. I'm with Ender on Mother!, had such a fun time watching it
  9. Only finishing off my first listen to it but I'm loving St Vincent's new album
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. I won't deny that I'm riding the hype a little bit, but I've been unsure of Conor's chances a few times before (Mendes + both Diaz fights) so I'm not just a blind fanboy. The main thing that has me backing him is that, for better or worse, he has 0 obligation to fight even remotely like a normal boxer. Some of the most difficult people I've ever sparred are the ones that just do the strangest shit with zero regard for form. Now if McGregor just went in swinging terrible haymakers then obviously he would get picked apart, but I really think he has an opportunity to get weird with how he comes at Floyd. And even though form is probably better than unpredictability over a whole career like Floyd's, I think it's enough to get big results in a once off. As long as there's no contentious finish (eg. Mayweather vs Ortiz) and McGregor doesn't try to outbox him then I'll be satisfied whatever the outcome tbh
  13. I 100% believe Conor will get the job done tomorrow night
  14. Dunkirk is the real deal
  15. Nah not at all, I'm def the outlier in this situation. It's not even that I really didn't like it or anything, it just didn't quite click with me like I thought it would. I'm happy to see that most people are loving it though because Edgar Wright really deserves all the success/recognition he gets
  16. Glow is brilliant, I'm 6 episodes in and it's just been such a great time so far. The characters are so endearing that I'm legit cheerful when they're trying their hardest to succeed, regardless of wether they actually do or not. It has me all sappy like that It's also hilarious, has really good drama, and Marc Maron essentially playing himself. Def recommend it
  17. Baby Driver was good. A bit disappointing but still good. The car chases were pretty underwhelming imo and after hearing so many great things about the soundtrack, I have to say it didn't really blow me away (although Boards of Canada was a nice surprise). Other than that though it was still enjoyable. Edgar Wright's enthusiasm for the genre really comes through and the chemistry/banter between the cast is pretty great
  18. Swans played in Dublin 3 and a half hours ago and I just found out......I'm so sad
  19. The difference being only the first 4 (out of 10) episodes were provided for the first season, whereas 7 (of 8) were sent out for the third. You can be as salty towards me or the show as you want, the rest of us will continue watching the best show on tv
  20. I'm just replying to you as you respond to me, not making dupe comments to get attention. And defend what, you didn't make any actual complaints beyond calling it bad? Here's a defense on par with your criticism: It's good. Whew, I'm glad I could match your insight with that one. Also lol at trying to work "gobshite" in there, I would love to hear you say that word in real life. In the meantime I'll be over here watching the critically panned third season http://www.metacritic.com/tv/the-leftovers/season-3/critic-reviews
  21. mate you replied to my throwaway comment twice with pretty much word for word identical posts about the show being "hot garbage", honestly like a 5 year old looking for attention. You watched 3 episodes and didn't like it, get over it you clown
  22. ah the ol' sauce "look at how much I don't like this popular thing" attention seeking tactic. Maybe if you say it's hot garbage for a 3rd time people will really think youre real cool ur loss
  23. Real talk though I'm expecting the sort of catharsis that we got from ep 5 but on a larger scale. It didn't matter if that guy was god or not, what mattered was how Matt changed as a person from that conversation imo the show is about how people rationalise the inexplicable. Both the characters and the audience are constantly giving things significance and meaning because "everything has to have a meaning" as Matt says (paraphrasing). The show was never really a pure mystery show à la LOST. The show also never really fully explains anything so I don't think they're gonna start with the finale, but instead they might heavily alude to a few answers that can be interpreted differently by different people
