    Top 5 Worst TV Shows EVER

    This thread seriously makes me wonder how little TV you people must watch if these are what you think are the "worst shows ever." There's obviously no accounting for taste, but every single show mentioned here - every single one - at least reaches the surprisingly hard-to-clear bar of competence.

    Oscars 2016 Discussion Thread

    - Don't care about Leo; Revenant is probably his worst, most insubstantial performance in years. Wolf of Wall Street features a far better Leo performance. - Quite livid that Alejandro "don't call my film a genre film because the root of genre is generic and my film is not generic" Inarritu won...

    Taylor Swift

    Taylor Swift inspired one of the two main characters of my undergraduate thesis film, so yeah I like her a lot. Don't care for her early country stuff (I really dislike "Love Story" - did she ever finish Romeo and Juliet or just up to like the end of Act 2?), but Red and onward have been...

    Men wearing make-up

    Do whatever makes you feel good. I don't wear makeup regularly but I have worn it a couple times when I had a need to look really good on camera, and hey, I felt pretty damn good with it on. I won't be wearing it every day because man is it a chore to put on (and I recognize the privilege that...

    The Official Fire Emblem Fates Thread

    I guess I should clarify - though I'm never opposed to Easy difficulty settings in games, the one thing I usually will oppose is non-permadeath modes when permadeath is an option. So while I'll play both games eventually and play them on Normal or whatever the lowest difficulty is, I'm...

    The Official Fire Emblem Fates Thread

    Birthright because I'm an unspeakable wuss about game difficulty, with the notable exception of Souls games. I'm a living contradiction. It's a shame because I love the general vibe of Conquest - the character design, the more morally dubious nature of the story and character relationships, and...

    Skyrim or Witcher 3?

    "Skyrim's game world, for example, is only around 39 square kilometers, making Witcher 3's world roughly 3.5 times larger than that of Bethesda's open-world epic." Here's another source for that same claim. That's just actual size. I could talk about how The Witcher 3 has a lot more substance...

    Eli Roth's "The Green Inferno"

    I don't know. Something about the potentiality of having a rooting interest in somebody having their organs eaten away makes me feel weird. I don't really know why having a rooting interest in a dumb horror movie supporting character being killed in clever, grisly fashion doesn't feel weird, but...

    Breath of the Wild Top 5 want-to-knows

    They're different things, and stories frequently feature plots, but you can definitely have a story without a plot and a plot without a story. Zelda games tend to be plot-driven despite being fairly weak on story. I'm really only interested in story in games these days, so I really want to know...

    Jurassic World, which was easily the worst film I've seen this year - and I saw 50 Shades of Grey. F. Inside Out, forming the back half of a double feature with the previous film, lifted my spirits quite a lot by delivering one of the greatest emotional payoffs I've ever seen in a film. A...

    Protagonists: Male or Female

    I so greatly prefer to play as female characters that I've begun actively seeking out games with written female protagonists, and always choosing to play as a woman when I play a game with variable gender protagonists. I am a man. I live the experience of being a man every day of my life. Why...

    Ex Machina. The most feminist film I've seen in an incredibly long time, but it's insidiously so - it'll worm its way into the minds of those resistant to such audacious concepts as "women are people too" so subtly that they may in fact mistake its incredibly feminist central idea for something...

    Spoiler The Many Timelines of Majora's Mask

    It does though. It specifically refers to the persistence of the world Link left behind. To the world where Ganon was defeated. Because it specifically refers to that timeline continuing to exist, it cannot have been rewound. It's like taking a tape and rewinding it in the middle of the credits...

    Spoiler The Many Timelines of Majora's Mask

    You are more than free to disagree, but understand that to do so is to disagree with explicitly stated canon. Hyrule Historia makes it very explicit that the point of divergence is Adult Link's being sent back in time to the "Child Era." It also explicitly uses the term "rewind" to refer to...

    Spoiler The Many Timelines of Majora's Mask

    It isn't though. She didn't rewind the timeline; she removed Link from the timeline and planted him in a new one, in which the events of the game hadn't happened yet. Zelda's timeline, the one the game's events took place in, still exists independently of Link, and doesn't rewind. Link is taken...

    Batman v Superman teaser trailer - Official Full Version

    Actors deserving of an oscar

    The only people who deserve Oscars are the people who are politically minded enough to play the game and choose projects that will land them in the Academy's field of view. Few are those who win Oscars on sole merit.

    Why Is IMDb So Esteemed By The Movie Industry?

You can find out what cameras they used, who operated them, what else those camera operators have worked on...

    Is There Anything That Zelda Offers You That Other Franchises Don't?

    Big Eyes. This film is at the same time a return to form for Burton, as well as an apparent admission that for the past few years, maybe he's been making films not because of some core emotional truth that speaks to him, but because people like them. This is a film about the dueling desires of...

    Could we achieve biological immortality in our lifetime?

    Okay a more thoughtful post, here we go: I think that for immortality to exist we'd have to a) have solved the issue of scarcity and b) have found ways to curb population growth simply to preemptively address issues of overcrowding. So to have a hypothetical conversation about the societal...

    Could we achieve biological immortality in our lifetime?
