Logan

Was alright. The emotion, acting, and production were all good. I didn't care for the plot at all.

I loved that movie and I definitely am not a fanboy. Never read the comic and had no idea what it was before I watched it. I thought the hokiness really added to the dark satire. And yeah, that opening scene was beautiful.

By the way, this Rooster Plays thing is going to be (hopefully) a pretty consistent project. I have three videos now so if anyone is interested you should subscribe to The SoBros Network.

I remember really liking The Road.

Short, grim, haunting, dystopian - all good things. Not overly complicated, it doesn't go into too many details about what happened, just the perspective of a dad dealing with the aftermath. I think I cried a couple times at least.

I couldn't hear most of it since I was at the bar, but I was mesmerized by his hand motions. He only really goes between the two; the skyward point and the okay sign.

The jump scare shows how poor an artistic director is at making horror. Silence of the Lambs, the restaurant scene in The Godfather, the "funny" scene in Goodfellas etc... are example of masterful directing, and how to truly make your audience shit their pants. Alien is also another example. While Alien does use some jump scares, they're necessary for the scenes where Scott makes you think there is going to be one and there never is.
Jump scares in movies have no effect on me, but for video games it's completely different. You don't have to react with a movie, you have to react in video games.

Yes, the sound and environment should also factor in - which Amnesia does do a good job with. But unless I'm forced to make a reaction with a jump scare, then it's not a deal breaker for me. But when I know something is waiting to chase me down, it stresses me out and I don't want it.

I've literally never played a horror game before because Half-Life and Bioshock scared me too much.

As someone who casually plays Amnesia: The Dark Descent and laughs at Dead Space, this boggles my mind.
Amnesia really isn't that scary. It just kinda stumbles after you slowly and I don't know, you don't see it that much anyway. Slow things don't scare me that much, it's the jump scares that get me.

If we were no longer near the middle or bottom of the list of every single measurable of a first world country's relative "greatness," then we could say America is great again.
When were we at the top of those relative "greatness" measurements?

I'm genuinely curious. I would like to see sources too as I'm having a hard time coming up with stuff based on my search words.

On the flipside, he could literally Make America Great AgainTM and people still would complain.
But what does that even mean?
Anyone?

Now playing it very, very poorly. I've literally never played a horror game before because Half-Life and Bioshock scared me too much.

I still don't see how that would classify as political incorrect. It's against the law, it doesn't matter if you agree/disagree.

I wouldn't be so hasty to say he saved thousands of jobs (it was 800 like Rama said).

"Most of that money will be invested in automation said to Greg Hayes, CEO of United Technologies, Carrier's corporate parent. And that automation will replace some of the jobs that were just saved."

Even if jobs stay from being outsourced, automation is happening and will inevitably result in massive job loss across the country.

SexWarrior, I think you're giving him too much credit in assuming he's shitposting. He doesn't talk to the press very much which makes it hard for the American people to really know what's going on. He relies on tweeting and if it's nothing but shitposting then what the fuck. He needs to talk to the press more in that case. But, what he does say to the press mirrors his attitude and words on his Twitter account.

You said you proved your competence which is why people are fine with your shitposting in a professional setting. Trump has not proven his competence and so I would argue doesn't have much ground to stand on for shitposting.

But, HYPOTHETICALLY (play along with me here) - if he were not shitposting, would you say his tweets inspire confidence?

Been reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. I'm only about halfway through, but it's fantastic. A slow burn, for sure, but it feels more like a living, breathing world than the vast majority of books I've read.
I love Neil Gaiman. I haven't read this one yet, but it was next on my list.

I'm hopelessly addicted. It's like a better Harvest Moon.

I've seen a lot of coverage and outcry (even from blacks!) about this incident.

I wonder why you aren't seeing it, Parsifal.

Covers all aspects of police in america including a comprehensive history from a radical left perspective.
I don't trust any history with a hard slant.
