I know youtubers are kinda frowned upon here, but this guy says some pretty interesting stuff. I came across this video explaining the connection between Rick & Morty and Gravity Falls on facebook today. tl;dw Stanford Pines was part of Rick's interdimensional terrorist crew and there's likely to be a cameo in season 3 (it doesn't make sense for you to spoiler a theory C-Higgy). Just skip like halfway through to get to the interesting stuff you haven't already heard before: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P6SOXMGXB1o

This guy has a lot of other interesting theories like: Zootopia is about the crack epidemic, the science of a good chase sequence, and Harry Potter isn't the chosen one. This is all new to me and regardless of the presentation, he defends his theories soundly.

You guys like this stuff? Know of any other good videos or channels?

Oh man, I just watched the Film Theorist videos about Salad Fingers and Don't Hug Me I'm Scared. I love it when trippy stuff makes sense sober. I've actually seen the Wisecrack guy when he was just skits on Cracked.com and I agree, he's hilarious. I think a bit less insightful though. I just checked out the Smash Bros MatPat Game Theorist video and I'd describe it as depressing rather than a mindfuck. But fantastic suggestion nonetheless! I didn't even know he did game stuff.

Let me preface this with I have never seen Zootopia personally. The "predators" in Zootopia are supposed to be an allegory for "super-predators" AKA inner city black people. That's generally accepted. Then a key plot device is a drug called Night Howler, which makes predators more aggressive. It turns out in the movie that the government actually had a hand in spreading this drug to predators...kind of like how the CIA was involved in smuggling cocaine into America during the 1980s and introducing crack to black communities. That said, most of his other videos don't look very interesting, particularly the superhero ones.

Let's talk about this show. I kinda like it.

The setting is what draws me in, post Revolutionary War England with the season ending traveling to America I think the show is probably going to go to Africa too if it airs for more than 3 seasons.

Delaney's character as a British man born to a Native American mother who apparently learned African shamanic secrets alongside being trained as a mercenary is an interesting mix of traits. Magic and insanity as focal plot points set in the 1800s is cool like Bloodborne cool without the excess of monsters. Delaney is a sort of underworld crime boss driven by esoteric motives, versed in magic that is portrayed subtle enough to be real and less tied to location and cult by having two separate continents influencing it (the Native American/African influences).

The other characters seem a bit more disposable than Hardy's and perhaps that is due to him being the creator of the show and taking some egotistical liberties, none of them have that wild evil portrayed in Delaney except the visions where he sees his mother (who will likely not be a present tense character at any point and has had zero dialogue). Not even the head of the East Indian Company who died in the last episode anyway comes off as deeply evil and twisted, the main antagonists just seem to be your garden-variety tricky assholes.

Anyway, good show, hope it makes it to season 2.

I just watched 2011 The Thing after not seeing it for years. I don't like it. Still. It holds my attention all the way through, but it just doesn't FEEL like "The Thing" (1982). So after watching the remake I immediately started the 1982 version (There was an earlier version released in 1951 called "The Thing From Another World" and I tried, but I couldn't, it's too campy. I dislike campy, generally.) and was blown away by the feel of the film. The characters had personality, they felt like people. There wasn't the "Gruff dickhead boss so he's gonna be a bad guy" character, no "Girl power mary sue (harsh? That's what I saw in the remake...)" character. They all felt real in the 1982 version, they all felt like reasonable generally likable people. Not plot fodder for a beast from space. Also the practical effects while standing out as dated to me now, (practical effects can be done better than they were in the film, even at the time, but it's a small grievance.). Finally, the thing that ticked me off, the thing that bugged me and set this whole thread into motion was the fact that there's no weed smoking in 2011 The Thing. The one curly haired character who's friends with the black cook in the 1982 version prominently and theatrically lights up in two scenes so far. It's done in such a casual way, again adding to the feeling that these are real, likable people...not plot fodder cooked up in a hollywood labratory to placate the soccer moms who would let their child see animated death for 120 minutes but not if the devils lettuce gets shoehorned into it in an endearing way...maybe if the creature ripped the joint out of his hand before consuming the 2011 hapless stoner and said "I'll mutilate you and assimilate your flesh, but I'm not putting THAT into my body!" before it gives a thumbs up to the camera.

For all the hate Resurrection got, it did give us the modern day alien aesthetic. Human prisoners used to birth xenos. Resurrection. Xeno captivity chambers. Resurrection. Dopey soldiers who get slaughtered to fuck. Resurrection. Resurrection had some of the biggest world building aspects of any Alien movie, and hate it or not, those aspects stuck around. It gave us the highest human population we've seen on screen in thr Alien universe. Showed us how the humans operate. Gave us the groundwork for most people being greedy and dumb in the franchise. I guess that all came from the comics though, and even so, the point stands. The movie solidified those aesthetic choices.

Alright I watched Get Out and it was great, that movie is fuckin nuts with a lot of really well done scenes. I like how when Rosies dad is giving Chris the tour he says theres "BLACK mold" in the basement, its little things like that that put the icing on the cake. I thought it went a little overboard in the end though with the whole putting your brain in a black persons body thing but it still worked. I think my favorite scene was when Rosies mom was stealth hypnotizing chris. I really liked the effect they used to portray chris being unable to move and in the "dark space". Another really great scene was when chris just wants the keys and its revealed that Rosie is in on it too, very well done, extremely tense. I haven't seen allison williams in anything else but I thought she was great, especially at the end during the phone call with Rod where she SOUNDS distressed but is keeping a completely straight face

OK so the conclusion to veep's season 6 was expected--not necessarily in a bad way.
But Selina's terribleness is beginning to be less funny and more irritating.
I think Catherine's neglect/abuse-joke was funny at first, but honestly without the development/back story, it's just a recurring joke that's starting to wear thin.
I'm not a fan of the Gary's romantic longing for Selina progression--it was more endearing when it seemed like it was just him taking his job too seriously. Amy was a little neglected this season when considering her introduction with her fiancee. Mike, and Jonah's two lackeys were pretty consistent
I understand they tried to show Selina's vulnerability with her breakdown and her breakup and try to make her more human and multi-dimensional, but it didn't work IMO, since it was all stuffed into the finale with no prior mention. It's a shame they didn't use those opportunities to explain/justify her personality and try to bring it full circle with the flashbacks but maybe that's just my over-sentimentality speaking.
I liked where they were going with Jonah, and he's probably the most interesting atm (though his antics may soon get old, e.g. the head bumping bit went on too long). I really hope they bring back Jonah's ex-fiancee Shawnee Tanz to also further complicate his life. Richard is probably my favourite character at the moment, but i really hope they develop him beyond his quirks.

nah I think that too. I was watching episode 3 last night and at one point it was just like shut the fuck up and let the movie breath for a minute, they don't need to be constantly talking ffs. I also genuinely love bad movies which doesn't help, something like The Time Travelers would be enough fun on its own. come to think of it, netflix should try and get the full movies they riff on. streaming rights for that shit can't be too expensive.

I have been liking it overall though, my only complaints are the random "Moon TV" commercials that just interrupt the flow and the fact that they don't do the entire movie despite being on netflix. but I think the entire first season was crowdfunded and then they shopped the episodes around, right? so maybe now that they know they'll be on netflix they can do longer episodes with the full movie.

nah they still don't do the whole movie, but like I said I think they did it this way for season one in case a TV network bought it. but since Netflix did, maybe next season will be different.

Yeah, it only took an episode for me to buy-in on New Crow, I like him a lot now. I'm 10 episodes in, though, and New Servo still sounds weird to me. He has some funny riffs but his voice is all over the place. I really like Jonah's voice, too. Despite him being Hawaiian he's fit perfectly into the doughy, midwestern average Joe mold that Joel and Mike created before him.

Just going to chime in and agree that the return is as good as MST3k has ever been. I was sort of worried people would have their nostalgia glasses on and not have realistic expectations, but it's been really nice to see people aren't doing that.

Cry Wilderness was amazing. One of the best. I hope they get renewed for season 12 or 2 or whatever.

The Christmas Special is kind of like the soft premiere for the new series so I guess a new thread is in order since the old one appears to be gone now.

Anyone watch the Christmas Special? I thought it was incredibly dumb but to its credit it embraced its dumb-ness to decent comedic effect. I'm not a fan of the hairless humpty dumpty guy, though. Not really jazzed about him being brought back. The villains of the episode seemed pretty weak and stupid, too. More so than usual Christmas Special villains. My favorite part was when The Doctor was talking to the lady and said "There are some situations that are just too stupid to be allowed to continue", made me laugh out loud. After that I embraced the stupidity of the episode and was able to enjoy it proper.

Sucks we have to wait another 4 months for the premiere, but the preview at the end of tonight's episode was nice. I can't shake how the new companion looks like Dr. Frank-N-Furter, but I'm hoping she grows on me and turns out to be a good companion.

Somehow I doubt they're going to pass up the opportunity to televise the intricacies of an annoying romantic lesbian subplot. Or at least genderswap the Doctor in one episode so he can make an awkward pass at it.

Honestly, I'll watch this season, but as much as I like Twelve at his best moments, I'm not excited about anything until Chibnall takes over.

At first I was disappointed about Capaldi leaving at the end of the season, but honestly, I'm looking forward to a chance at a big shift, which would've been harder to pull off if he'd been stuck with the same Doctor.

Just hope the next one isn't a Tennant-clone, as much as I loved Ten.

Shit episode but the trailer for the rest of the season had me hype the fuck out of my brain. I miss the RTD era and bringing back John Simms as the fucking Master is an epic way to end the Moffat era. First time in a long time where I give a fuck about how the season goes.

I'm loving this season so far, though my hopes weren't necessarily high after the last two and the hiatus.

Thought I'd hate the new companion, but she's actually pretty great. I like her dynamic with the Doctor, it's refreshing after the past "SuperDuperTotallyImportantJustBelieveMeI'mMoffat" companions. They're banter back and forth is great and I like how she's constantly questioning everything.

And it's nice to see Capaldi finally get to shine as the 12th Doctor. The past two seasons had their good moments, but it still felt like they never knew in what direction to take him. It finally feels like he and the writers have finally settled into the role. Shame it's his last season.

Absolutely despised Nardole in the previous Christmas specials, but ever since 'The Pilot' I've been pleasantly surprised every time he's shown up. I hope we get a few episodes with him actually joining in on the adventures before the end of the season.

This season's big arc teases are..."there." I'm interested, but not really. I've been burned too many times by Moffat with his great set ups and horrendous pay offs. If it turns out good, I'll be pleasantly surprised. But really, I'm just in it for the one offs this season.

Also, If anyone's interested in Classic Doctor Who a new streaming service just launched called Britbox. It's interface kinda sucks and you're kinda limited on what devices you can stream it on right now, but it's got pretty much all the Classic episodes that are available in as good of quality you can find. It's better than digging through DailyMotion at least.

I hate the season, the companion and Capaldi are the only redeeming factor. The newest ep was the worst yet. Rehashed the old "Amy saves a whale" episode. The writing is just atrocious. Old Who, every filler episode still managed to blow my mind. These episodes are so sub-standard with literally no thought put into the concepts. All I care about is seeing who is in the Vault, although based on the previews they showed after ep1, it's pretty obviously one of the two Masters. Or who knows, maybe its a future Doctor who came back and warned Capaldi not to leave Earth or his future would come to pass.

When SMith was the Doctor, the writers delivered good episodes all season (minus the final Pond episodes). With Capaldi, his performances are better than SMith but when the episodes arent giving major canon, they are straight bad.

So it looks like the spoilers about the Force Tree are true.

What say you /mtv/? Do you like this new retconned origin of the force? It's certainly better than midichlorians.

Well anything can sound dumb when you oversimplify it and talk about it in a condescending tone.

Agreed whole-heartedly. Star Wars isn't meant to be technical, which is why they stay away from the technobabble as much as possible. I actually said earlier in the thread that I thought it was good that they're retconing mitichlorians, but actually you are right. Leaving it vague is the way to go. I mean, I do think it's a good idea to change the canon, because mitichlorians are retarded, but if they do, they need to make it quick, vague, and not spend much time on it. Though even if they did that, it's gonna pull a lot of focus to something that is inevitably gonna sound really stupid.

>Yoda: "Size matters not. Look at me. Judge me by my size, do you? Hmm? Hmm. And well you should not. For my ally is the Force, and a powerful ally it is. Life creates it, makes it grow. Its energy surrounds us and binds us. Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you; here, between you, me, the tree, the rock, everywhere, yes. Even between the land and the ship."

What kind of bitch needs more of an explanation than that?
