  1. The series is kind of wonky but is incredibly interesting. The concept is pretty well-used. P.S. The best characters in the series are a couple of toothpicks.
  2. It would take a bit too long to write down my mixed feelings so I will just write a brief summary of my thoughts on the ends of certain character arcs. Tyrion Lannister: Peter Dinklage is one of the best actors today so it's really disappointing that they are giving him this material to work with. Since Season 7, they've done some strange things with Tyrion and unfortunately, nothing paid off for me in this season. Tyrion is my favourite character but he is not given much substance in this season. Furthermore, I'm pretty surprised that he suggested Bran. Would not have expected that from him. Cersei and Jaime Lannister: When Cersei first started out, I didn't like her that much. But by Season 3, I felt that they had come to the point where she had become an actually intriguing character. Cersei's arc is completed on a note that I feel is true to her character. Jaime, on the other hand..... yeesh. WHAT A LETDOWN. He had so much going his way but then he's pulled back so he can get back with Cersei. Jaime deserved better, honestly. Daenerys Targaryen: STORMFATHER. WHAT. WERE. THEY. THINKING? The twist for Dany's character does make sense to a degree but the problem is that they never justify her reasons for doing so. This change was so rushed yet so drawn-out that it came out of nowhere. It was too shocking for me and it was thoroughly disappointing. Jon Snow: Besides Cersei, Jon's character arc was the one that I had the least problems with. Part of me really wishes that he claimed the throne. They had built up to something but passed us some salt instead. I actually liked how he was the one who killed Daenerys. BUT STILL. He could have totally claimed it. Why didn't Tyrion suggest him? Any of Daenerys' supporters probably would have just left or been killed or something but I really see no major problems with Jon getting the throne. Sansa Stark: This may just be me but I feel like Sansa has never been given a lot of focus, compared to other arcs. I believe she's a great character and she does get what she wants in the end, but I feel like there's something missing. I really can't put my finger on it. Arya Stark: WHAT A WASTE. What a waste of potential! Arya has such an incredible power yet she never uses it in Season 8. I've really enjoyed Arya's character and I felt like they were turning it up to 11, but then changed their minds and dialled it down. A lot. It was so disappointing. Bran Stark: Ummm. Yup. So that happened. I've never liked Bran. To me, his story was never interesting. They had the chance to do so but never did. I feel like they should have put Bran and Jaime against each other in this season. That would have been entertaining. But they didn't. He just continues to sit in his wheelchair, complaining about his crippling depression. Others: Brienne got knighted which made me happy. I didn't like how the Hound died (or the Mountain for that matter). What they did with Melisandre was pretty weird. And I wish Davos had done something awesome. Feel free to disagree.
  3. They could do that and just say that Snoke was a malformed clone or something
  4. Rodel here. Just today, my collaborator and friend Bayle was in a car accident with another friend. I spent a couple of hours worrying anxiously.

    Thankfully, they have no serious injuries and Bayle is walking away with a couple of broken ribs.

    I'm very thankful for the miracle and this doesn't change what we do here. (Even though we've had a hard time posting stuff for a while)

    1. Darkness Ascendant

      rust my dude, I'm so glad you guys are okay

  5. I love the fact that Ian McDiarmid is returning as the Emperor. If they do this correctly, they can fix almost all the plot problems in The Force Awakens and to a lesser degree, The Last Jedi. There's a story in Star Wars Legends where Palpatine is revealed to have survived by possessing bodies with his spirit until he finally decays. If JJ canonizes this, he could explain why Snoke exists. And how Starkiller Base was built. And how the First Order exists. Let's say Palpatine ordered the construction of not just the first two Death Stars, but Starkiller Base in the prequel trilogy. After his death, his spirit just possesses another body, Snoke. Snoke/Palpatine would then oversee the finishing constructions on Starkiller Base as well as gather the remaining Empire forces to create the First Order. I really hope this is the case. (Also LANDO HYPE)

  7. Another thought about Captain Marvel: The release of this movie seems ill-timed. Not from a commercial standpoint, but from a storytelling standpoint. You see, if Captain Marvel had been released in Phase One or Phase Two, with no other mention of her, we would have been aware that A. the Avengers Initiative was named after her and B. her character was out there. Everyone would have been asking, "Where's Captain Marvel? When is she coming back?", creating anticipation for her return. This makes the logo reveal on Fury's pager more satisfying because it confirms she is coming back. However, Captain Marvel has been released only several weeks ahead of Avengers: Endgame which makes her inclusion seem more forced. It doesn't help that her movie seemed to push the message that she is one of the most powerful characters in the MCU. I understand that they need the character, but it seems too quick and too soon before Endgame to do so. They should have released this film much earlier so that A. there is an age difference in her appearance, B. it wouldn't seem so rushed and C. there is anticipation for her appearance in Endgame. The empty performance we got from Brie Larson doesn't raise any hopes either. Hopefully, she's better in Endgame.
  8. Answers in order: Ant-Man, The Dark Knight, Unbreakable, WarGames, Dirty Harry and Taxi Driver
  9. So I just saw Captain Marvel. Eehhhh. It was fine. I don't think it was great. First off, I don't think Brie Larson pulls off the character of Carol Danvers. None of the trailers really impressed me, and one line, in particular, made me roll my eyes. "I'm not going to fight your war. I'm gonna end it." It just sounded so dumb and I couldn't take it seriously at all. Did I have fun watching the movie? Yeah. Is it the best Marvel movie? No. The writing for Carol Danvers is pretty weak and I got the feeling that she was only presented as a really powerful character to be set up for Endgame. Larson's performance felt... empty. Knowing that the Skrulls were in it, I thought I knew exactly how Fury lost his eye. The movie proved me wrong, kind of. It was kind of funny, but also underwhelming. I liked the cat though. Goose was pretty awesome. Overall, I have to disagree with Pagliacci and say that I enjoyed Aquaman much more than Captain Marvel. It's not terrible, just average.
  10. A little defence against my boi Jean-Claude, I do like Hard Target and Timecop, but yeah the rest of his movies are pretty unbearable.
  11. Things that Made Me Happy About the Oscars: Spike Lee winning his first competitive Oscar and Samuel L. Jackson's enthusiasm in announcing and awarding him. Olivia Colman's acceptance speech for winning Best Actress. Rami Malek's win and acceptance speech. Guillermo del Toro presenting Best Director to his close friend, Alfonso Cuaron. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse winning Best Animated Feature. First Man winning Best Visual Effects. Mirai being nominated for Best Animated Feature. No cringy host this year. Thank all things holy. Things that Made Me Angry (or Cringe) About the Oscars: Bohemian Rhapsody winning all the Editing awards. The fact that Mission: Impossible-Fallout was not nominated for anything. Maya Rudolph, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler presenting Best Supporting Actress. Black Panther winning Best Original Score. The Favourite only won 1 Oscar out of the ten nominations it received. Won't You Be My Neighbor? was snubbed by the Academy for Best Documentary. Black Panther winning 3 Oscars. Bohemian Rhapsody led the ceremony with 4 Oscars. (What??) Serena Williams presenting A Star Is Born.
  12. Sounds like you need a reboot. If you'd like any suggestions of anime that might cleanse your palette. just say the word. Happy to help. Quick thought on The Girl Who Leapt Through Time: It's a great film, but I do think the pacing could be better. And the ending could be a little more satisfying.
  13. Some Brandon characters described by anime themes: Kelsier: Battlecry by Nujabes from Samurai Champloo Szeth-son-son-Vallano: Debilman no Uta by kensuke ushio from Devilman Crybaby Stephen Leeds/Legion: A Cruel Angel's Thesis by Yoko Takahashi from Neon Genesis Evangelion Wayne: Tank! by Yoko Kanno from Cowboy Bebop Waxillium Ladrian: Rain by Yoko Kanno from Cowboy Bebop Vivenna: Styx Helix by Myth & Roid from Re:Zero Bridge Four: Guren no Yumiya by Linked Horizon from Attack on Titan Vasher and Nightblood: the WORLD by Nightmare from Death Note Hoid: Space Lion by Yoko Kanno from Cowboy Bebop
  14. What's the meaning of life? Whose pyjamas are these? Why so serious? I heard Master Yoda talking about midi-chlorians, and I was just wondering, what are midi-chlorians? How many days in your life have you been sick? Aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper? Shall we play a game? You've gotta ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well do ya, punk? You talkin' to me? Who ya gonna call? Who's on first? Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes? (Bonus: If you can determine what movies these questions are from, you have our eternal respect)
  15. So Brandon mentioned you in his acknowledgements for Skyward. I can't remember it off the top of my head, but you were a beta reader and advised him about some physics...if that's correct. That's really cool. Are you doing the same for Starsight?
