lol she's not even okay with a patient going to a different doctor for the pills.

Again, no one is actually forcing them to stay at that clinic. Miss Uptight implied she'd leave the practice.

No force is happening.

A doctor putting their personal beliefs above the medical needs of a patient is not fulfilling their oath as a doctor. It’s simple.

It's not a personal belief that fetuses are living. It's a medical fact. The doctor took an oath to protect life. The doctor refuses to give abortion pills. Why is he or she wrong?
This argument is dumb. The doctors giving abortions or prescribing abortion pills are already fine with doing it. No one is forcing them to work at the clinics.

The second run was way better, I see what you mean by big energy.

Also my mom's name is Cheryl.  >:(

I think you've been reading too many mainstream media headlines about woodchippers aggressively chopping people up.
Nah, I work in healthcare admin.

Either way though, I can take a view on it that although woodchippers are deadlyTM, we shouldn't ban woodchippers, nor should we force everyone on earth to have a license to operate one that needs renewing every 4-6 months.
True and we all know that falling into woodchippers is highly contagious.
The more woodchippers that are out there, the more likely people will fall into them.
One will fall in and the sickness will spread like wildfire. Neighbor after neighbor taking the plunge into the chipper. Why haven't we required licenses yet??

I thought it was fine

imagine being this wrong
I also think they could have stopped after the first Matrix movie. Other than that, it was about as decent as I expected in that it wouldn't be good but wasn't absolute dog shit.

What, you need evidence that restrictions on freedom of movement and free association with other humans is detrimental to the health and well-being of humans?
Yes.

Is it boomers reaching end of life or is it the suggestion that people not hang out in groups without masks indoors for a few months last year that's causing persistent deaths to this day?

Just finished Matrix 4 - it was pretty pointless with most of the movie focusing on nostalgia. It really felt like a fanfic epilogue. But I thought it was fine. Even though the plot was unnecessary and definitely didn't need to be made, I've certainly watched worse movies. And as someone who follows Brass Against on Twitter, I was excited to hear their RAtM cover make it into the movie.

I go easy on Momoa because I feel like he hits a specific himbo badass niche that many can't pull off. Is he the best dramatic actor? No, but I do have a difficult time imagining anyone else doing what he can do well.

Part of the problem is fat people being fat. You can increase your life expectancy by 10 years if you stop double fisting Big Macs.
This country's entire culture is consumption. Between the creation of absolute garbage food to pack as many calories into cheap ingredients as possible and the never ending advertisements for said garbage foods; we were encouraged to be fat. Not to mention, denied the healthcare and education to make better choices.

I can't imagine anyone doing a better job and I'm sad they only did the one movie. Truly his sexiest role.

Good job, Rama. There is noticeable improvement on the last run. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see you in a movie or TV show.

Thanks. The past couple of years have been rough with the pandemic and the changing demographics in Film/TV, but it’s nice doing regular training again.
I have a friend in LA who does audition coaching. I can pass his info to you if you're interested.

I'm thinking about doxxing myself a little and opening up more to this community. After all, you've shown your face and Thork showed his abs and his junk, the secret Santa thing is rolling. A number of members speak openly about the specific cities they live in. Maybe we could be more that a bunch of arguing people being shitty to each other.

It feels weird.
It's not the first time Rama or Thork have revealed themselves. I vaguely remember seeing Rama's imdb or at least a headshot before and we've all seen more of Thork than we'd like.

I've posted my pictures here before and have even stayed in a cabin in the woods with a fellow FES member. You open up however much you want, boo.

Nothing you just said contradicted anything I said. By caricature I meant only exaggeration of masculinity, not irony or comedic relief.

Oh, come on, can you honestly say I'm wrong? There are some stories in which Conan is an absolute cock. "The God in the Bowl," for instance. Conan maims multiple innocent guardsmen in that one. You know that's just not cool. And I haven't even seen the Conan movie with Momoa in it. Maybe I should watch it and report back.
I meant more in that it seems like you don't quite get Conan or if you do get it then you don't like it but I do kinda think you miss the point a bit.

His prose is overly ponderous and self-serious, he had an annoying tendency to repeat basic plots over and over, his racism certainly hasn't aged well, and Conan himself often comes across as just plain unlikable. Still, there's plenty of great fantasy out there that owes a lot to his influence. I like to think that Conan walked so that Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser could run.

Conan is great because he reads a bit like a demigod/hero from old mythologies. Complete with self-serious and repeating basic plots. Conan is definitely highly unlikeable at times but that's what makes him fantastic. He's such an arrogant, violent, hypermasculine caricature and that's what makes him fun.

But I'm sure you'll hate Momoa as Conan as well even though he's actually perfect for the role. The rest of the movie has its downsides but I would have been thrilled to get a Conan series with Momoa.

So I found this awful video that for a second shows the scene you hate so much and the setting very much seems like "military dudes chilling." Nothing about his performance seemed out of place or anything like what you described. If he seemed too 'dudebro' well, the setting seems pretty dudebro and probably exactly what the director was angling for.

Welp, I have absolutely no desire to ever read your opinions on fantasy if that's how you feel about Conan.

And it definitely makes sense why you dislike Jason Momoa.

Greetings, fellow generic fantasy fan.
How dare you. Robert E Howard created the character in 1932. Show some fucking respect.

He’s not a poor actor, that’s why you seem so butthurt.
Literally this.

I know what Saddam is getting at, but he's not a bad actor. I understand why someone doesn't like the characters he's suited for, but again, it's not bad acting. Like the Conan the Barbarian reboot. He actually did a fantastic job as Conan but I don't think people liked it because he didn't have the same cheese ball energy Arnold had. However, he was actually a MUCH better Conan and I say that as someone who has read almost all of the original Conan stories.

Saddam just didn't like his version of Idaho and it is what it is. But he wasn't bad and is no where near terrible.
