    You should mind though..

     

    Those movies ended up being garbage.

    they end up shit cause the studios think they can get money on name alone

    they just think 

    well if is 1 season of 24 ep so lets make 1 movie 

     

    they should just stop and start developing a story

    instead of cramping things 

    like in the death note anime, L made his move after 7 episodes

    here he is sooooooo stupid

    and is not the character L

    just some weirdo 

    same with all the characters

    they werent the characters we knew

    so thats why its trash

     

    To be fair, you have to have a very high IQ to understand the Netflix adaptation of Death Note. The drama is extremely subtle, and without a solid grasp of moral philosophy, most of the themes will go over a typical viewer's head. There's also Light's narcissistic outlook, which is deftly woven into his characterisation - his personal philosophy draws heavily from Machiavellian literature, for instance. The fans understand this stuff; they have the intellectual capacity to truly appreciate the depths of these murders, to realize that they're not just awesome- they say something deep about LIFE. As a consequence people who dislike the Netflix adaptation of Death Note truly ARE idiots- of course they wouldn't appreciate, for instance, the drama in Light's existential catchphrase from the original anime "I'll take a potato chip, and eat it" which itself was left out of the adaptation because of how trivial the scene was to the theme of the movie. I’m smirking right now just imagining one of those addlepated simpletons scratching their heads in confusion as Adam Wingard’s genius wit unfolds itself on their television screens. What fools.. how I pity them. :D

     

    And yes, by the way, i DO have a Death Note tattoo (one reminiscent of the Netflix adaptation, of course). And no, you cannot see it. It's for the ladies' eyes only- And even they have to demonstrate that they're within 5 IQ points of my own (preferably lower) beforehand. Nothin personnel kid B)

     

    --

    In all seriousness though, I thought the movie was hilarious. The movie was so bad that my friends were willing to sit through the experience again just to see what my reaction was. I wasn't expecting it to be good, but maybe I was just pleasantly surprised because I wasn't going to take the movie seriously to begin with ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

     

    But if I could sum up the entire movie in one picture, this would be it:

    nice to meet a fellow lover of the anime

    man 

    it such an over the top anime

    it takes it self too serious and yet not so serious

    im always hungry after watching it

    or before watching it

    and during it

    i also compare it to yugioh gx in a way

     

    I'm normally not a fan of these kinds of anime, but something about Shokugeki is just oddly... intriguing? I honestly can't put my finger on it, lol.

    I think it's just the fact that they weaved the fanservice in a way that's actually purposeful. That in itself is already pretty impressive.

     

    This show also reminds me of Detective Conan for whatever reason. I think that might be because of the way the students always divulge the secrets to their dishes and explain why their ingredients or approach overshadowed their opponent's cooking. Kinda like how Conan always explains how the culprits screwed up in their murder attempts.

     

    I don't watch Yu-Gi-Oh but I can definitely see why you might think that, haha.

    I was at work and a whole bunch of people came in to pickup their order of those glasses! One lady actually gave me a free pair, but I was stuck at work :angry:

    OH MAN, a similar thing actually happened to me as well.

     

    Our building’s alarm went off so everyone had to evacuate. I figured we would be outside for a while, and what better time to grab a few pairs of eclipse glasses?

     

    Except the place that was handing them out was all the way across campus, so my mentor dissuaded me from going, and I never had another opportunity to grab eclipse glasses from my workplace since then. It caused me a lot of stress when I was trying to track down places that were handing them out weeks later, lol.

    I wonder how it will be the appearance of "Big Ben" after four years of maintenance and renovation. 

    probably not all that much different (aside from the general polishing and gear replacement) if they plan on preserving its historical integrity

    I hear ya, it's my last year of school, so I'll be busy myself. Those glasses went out pretty damn fast. A few stores had some, but people snatched those up quick. 

    On 8/20/2017 at 5:43 PM, machine said:

    Yeah it's surprisingly hard to track down those things. No stores are carrying them where I live, and while one of the local libraries ordered like 2000 pairs, they aren't going to be handing out any of them out since they're not sure if they bought ones that are protective enough. At least it's easy to find tutorials on how to make your own eclipse viewer :/

    ironically enough, it was easier to track down places that were handing them out for free than it was to hunt for stores that had them in-stock (or even online at a reasonable price, for that matter)

    --

    a cloud blocked the view during the peak of the eclipse yesterday ._.

    granted, I wasn’t in the path of totality, so it wasn’t that big of a deal, but it still annoyed me a good amount, lol

    the next eclipse is happening in 2024, and I live close enough to the path of totality, so that’ll be pretty hype at least (honestly though, who knows where I’ll end up in seven years, haha)

    Monday hype! and Kenzi is back :D

    for now
    at least until school starts back up again, lol
    it’s nice to see that some of you guys are still around
     

    also, can I just take a moment to mention how stupidly difficult it was to get my hands on eclipse glasses
    if not already sold out, those glasses were either on the other side of the world or being sold at a ludicrous price


  9. thread is dead but I figured I’d update my thoughts on here anyway

     

    so I finally got around to watching this movie
    and I’ve never seen Ran in a more vestigial role. ever.
    nothing about the movie would’ve changed if the producers took her out entirely

     

     

    fist fight between Akai and Amuro was also completely unnecessary 
    because obviously settling their trivial rivalry is more important than lives at stake

     

    ferris wheel design may also be one of the worst feats of “engineering” I’ve ever seen
    it took every ounce of effort to not burst out laughing in the middle of the night when the announcer lauded that it was the aquarium’s most important renovation 

     

    everything else worth complaining about more or less stays the same between most DC movies

     

    but I appreciate the flashback they snuck in there

    whats bad to me was that i herd that the ticket price for this movie was double then the previous one

    I was thoroughly convinced you had left after spring semester started.  In our absence, DCW has become a wasteland, FeelsBadMan.

    Even if I lack the time to really sit down, I don't think I can ever abandon DCW entirely. I've spent a good chunk of time derping around here these past couple years, and I'll always be grateful for how much I've grown from interacting with you guys. I look back on my history here quite fondly, so I'll always have a soft spot for DCW, haha.

     

    you rite tho

    the absence of activity here does make DCW feel like a wasteland, lol


  11. I'm curious to hear about what you guys are up to :) (even if we don't talk much)

    OMM: SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE

    well, not officially, but the school year is over so it's summer for me :^)

     

    I have so much on my backlog but I'm really glad I finally had the chance to play through Chrono Trigger and LIMBO

    tbh the only reason I got a Steam account was because LIMBO was on sale, lol

     

    I only have a couple more weeks to potato before going back to work, so I gotta make these dog days worthwhile, heh

    there's so much I want to do now that I finally have some free time to sit down 

    gosh I'm so excited...........

     

    ahhh, it feels so good to be on break :')

    my parents ended up sending him back because taking care of him was too much work

    it might've been for the better since he never got the attention he deserved during the daytime since no one was home

    What I like most about the game is probably that it's 3D(/2.5D), instead of the sort of top-down 2D we've had so far.

    I agree!

    the extra touch of realism can really help, haha

    Also, now that you're on the topic of the new Pokémon gen VII, how's the difficulty of the game compared to earlier generations? I haven't really played any other Pokémon games aside from LeafGreen and Diamond/Pearl, and I can't remember how difficult/easy those games were, but I find the new Pokémon Moon/Sun way too easy. Granted it's a children's game, but it would've be a bit more exciting if they'd upped the difficulty a tad, or just given the various trainers you meet a couple more Pokémon, haha.

     

    Anyway, aside from that the new Pokémon game is a marvel to look at, and I especially like the new donkey/horse Pokémon. :P (I haven't completed the game yet, and I have yet to try out all the new/old? features, so I can't really comment on those.)

    The last Pokemon games I’ve played were the gen V games, so it’s been a while, haha.

     

    I’ve been told that the newer games tend to be a lot easier since they buffed the exp. share so that experience is distributed among every member of your party (which makes it stupidly easy to become over-leveled, lol). I turned off my exp. share the moment I received it, and admittedly, there were a few parts of the game that caused me a fair amount of stress (one of the trials took me a couple of attempts to beat, and I was actually a bit under-leveled for the elite 4). Granted, I didn’t really grind and mainly relied on trainer battles to gain levels, haha. One of my friends went to even further lengths to up the difficulty by setting the battle style to “Set” instead of “Shift” (“Set” doesn’t give you the option of seeing the opponents next Pokemon after you knock one out). I’d venture to guess that you left the exp. share turned on and had your battle style set on “Shift” if you thought it was that easy? Seeing as you haven’t beaten the game yet, maybe implement these options and see what happens!

     

    But to answer your question, the difficulty curve is comparable to some of the older games when the exp. share is turned off. Maybe a little easier, or at least in my opinion, lol.

     

    OH MAN, the new features are amazing. For starters, no HMs is probably one of the best aspects of these games. The Pokedex is actually useful for once by telling you Pokemon locations and even giving you typings of Pokemon you haven’t caught yet (which was especially useful since I was trying my darndest not to spoil the games for myself). Also the fact that whenever you catch a Pokemon, the game gives you the option of seeing its summary and letting you put it in your party instead of sending it straight to the PC box! The list just goes on and on, haha.

    People love to argue that they call Christmas/New Year as "Holidays" because they don't want to offend anyone but I think it's geared more towards the gretee disliking the occasion than the other party not celebrating it. I mean I always call the holidays by their name, may it be a Muslim one or American one or Asian one or whatsoever e.g. Ramadan/Thanks Giving/Lunar New Year eventho I don't celebrate them . I do it because I respect, welcome and tolerate the occasion. And I don't see any reason why not unless you are someone who cannot tolerate these things. And geez,  if you are offended when someone greets you "Merry Christmas/Happy New Year" because you don't celebrate those things then something is wrong with you. You are probably just a Liberal-Fanatic who despises everything about Christianity.

     

    If you're gonna counter argue and ask why I am against Christmas being called "Holiday" if I'm a tolerable person, it's simply because. as I said, it's disrespectful to those people who have established the occasion and to those who celebrate it. It's name swapping no matter what you call it. You are basically not acknowledging it (It's basically like calling someone "girl/boy/kid" instead of calling them by their name) And anyways, Christmas is just the name of the Holiday, it doesn't mean that if you greet someone by it, you automatically shove Christian beliefs to them. Actually, Christmas is not even really a Christian Celebration to some. (There are Christians Denominations that despises Christmas)

     

    Plus to me, Christmas Celebration has a different meaning to me. Being a Christian Deist, I don't celebrate it like the theological Christians do where they celebrate it because it's the birth of their God Jesus whatsoever. I celebrate it as an occasion where people can rest and be happy and celebrate and reunite and give gifts to each other. And I'll still call it Christmas.

    Um, I greet people with “Happy Holidays," lol. But does that mean I'm against Christmas? Not in the least bit (fun fact: it’s actually my favorite holiday). What about Kwanzaa? Well, I don’t exactly celebrate it, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I have adverse feelings towards it either. And same, I’m not Christian, but I celebrate Christmas for the exact reasons you do.

    Quite the opposite, actually.

     

    After reading your take on the subject, perhaps our differing perspectives is due to our interpretation of the phrase “Happy Holidays.”

     

    To me, “Happy Holidays” is inclusive of all of these different celebrations since you can’t assume what each person celebrates. I don’t see how it can be considered name-swapping unless, for example, you’re solely referring to Christmas when you say “Happy Holidays” (which seems to be what you’re claiming). But again, that’s not what I feel the phrase is meant for. The phrase is meant to be inclusive of every holiday during this time of the year, not just Christmas.

     

    In other words, “Happy Holidays” is actually acknowledging every holiday, as opposed to only saying “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah” to someone who might only celebrate Kwanzaa.

     

    But, in the end, no matter what you consider the phrase to mean, the person wishing you a “Happy Holidays” is ultimately wishing you happiness. It’s not really fair to interpret the benevolent gesture as some malicious attempt to cause you offense, lol.

     

    not to drag @machine into the conversation or anything, but I think this just about sums it up pretty well:

    It's not intended to be a metaphorical middle finger to those who do happily partake in the non-consumerism part of the season, it's just easier and acknowledges that there's other holidays going on around the same time. Plus, it could be argued an empty, insincere "merry xmas" is more disrespectful than a genuine "happy holidays"

    tl;dr - not offended in any way nor do I have a pronounced dislike for xmas, I'm, personally, just glad there's an alternative, catch-all term available for those who want one

    If you don't mind me asking, what's its name? tumblr_m42qz8zkyF1r58lid.jpg Do they know how old it is?

    before my parents adopted the guy, its name had been “Pickles” for about three weeks

    we haven’t made a firm decision yet, so its name seems to alternate between “Pickles” and some Chinese variant of “Kitty Cat” lol

    and it’s about a year old, haha

    I'm gonna go with rowlet and never evolve him so he stays smol 5ever

    Oh boy, I got Pokemon Moon on release date, and I loved it!!  I blasted through the game in a week, and I still play it relatively religiously to this day.  If you’re on the fence and have enough money to get it, please do!  It’s absolutely fantastic, and this is coming from a lifelong fan of the series who’s played virtually every Pokemon game, or at least one from each generation.  For the first time in my life, I can proudly say I have a favorite Pokemon game, and that would, hands down, be Moon.  The game looks gorgeous, the music is brilliant, the characters are actually endearing and lovable, the game is genuinely funny, and it’s a treat for both new fans, veterans, young children, and adults alike.  The new Pokemon are great, and it strikes a perfect balance between easy and difficult.  I haven’t had this much fun playing a Pokemon game in years, I seriously felt like I was a kid again, it was magical.  To be honest, the only complaint I have is that the game was too good for the 3DS to handle.  No matter which system you use, even the New 3DS XL, there will be framerate issues during Totem Battles and any battle with more than three Pokemon on the field at once.  But don’t let that deter you!  Everything else about the game I loved.  This was the best game of 2016 for me, and one of the best games I’ve played in my life.  I liked it so much, I've even started watching the Sun and Moon anime, and in all my years of being a Pokemon fan I have never watched the anime.  That's how much I've fallen in love with the music and the characters and the region and the Pokemon.  The game is a solid 9.5/10 (I only took off 0.5 for the framerate issues, and because I don’t believe in 10/10s anyway, but given the option I would have given this a 10/10).  Please consider getting this game as a last-second Christmas gift for yourself if you haven’t already, you won’t regret it!

    I see you found $135 lying around, please consider spending some of that to get yourself a copy of Sun or Moon, whichever you’d prefer.

    EDIT: And if you're the type of person to be swayed by hype trailers, here's a good one for ya!

     

    ALL OF MY YES

     

    oh man, I thought I was head over heels for Platinum, but Moon completely blew my expectations out of the water

    the main thing I'm peeved about are the AIs in Battle Royal

    I genuinely want to see what their algorithm consists of because I swear there's no predictable pattern I could discern from their battle tactics (aside from, you know, targeting the weakest guy)

    or I dunno, there could be an aspect of probability/chance that plays a bigger role than it should

    because I was getting seriously frustrated playing this battle format after being ganged up on for the umpteenth time despite there being enemies with disadvantaged typings on the field

     

    also the framerate issue can be a bit annoying at times, but it's nowhere near enough to impede on the most organic ecstasy I've felt in ages playing this godsend of a game

    On My Mind: Late Merry Christmas to everyone and an advance happy new year too! Yes, CHRISTMAS not Holidays. It's purely disrespectful to the occasion and to those who celebrate it to call it the latter. Even me who's kinda like ex-catholic still calls it Christmas. :V

    tbh I always thought that saying "Happy Holidays" was a way of encompassing holidays such as Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Christmas, etc. into a generic greeting 

    people do mean well when they say it so I don't see how it's taboo to refer to these occasions as such, especially since you can't assume what each person celebrates

    I'm not trying to argue with you, I'm just curious about how you came to this conclusion

  15. @M.K. I don’t think it’s fair to dismiss a show solely based on the fact that it incorporates explicit content (or even go so far as to say that you “hate” it), especially when you haven’t even given it a chance.

     

    It’s a shame you generate this much animosity towards nudity and violence, because there are a ton of thought-provoking films and shows out there you’d be missing out on if you continue judging them through the same lens.
