  • Parker Posey plays a great crazy bitch. I don't think she's acting.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis

  • Yeah, she’s fucking nuts.

    You know, I could actually forgive a 4'10" Cruise as Jack Reacher because the stories were good. And relatively close to the books*. But this does look better.




    *They dumbed down the ending of the second movie. Same general plot, but the book's conclusion was WAY more interesting.

  • Yeah. One of the main themes of the Reacher books was that he was a big strong guy. 'naturally strong not workout strong' Also... his method of street fighting..... Use hard surfaces to your advantage. He had no formal training. also.. he really didn't drive


    Cruise was none of those things. Kinda ruined it for me. This looks good.

  • Elphie.... you got me wrong. I believe in the possibility of just about any whacked out shit. Ghosts? maybe.... bigfoot... maybe? Aliens and fairies and shit? again... maybe. The maybe is not strong tho. not gonna watch movies based on any of those things.


    I think a lot of you watch em because you want to believe. Not me. shit is crazy enough.

    *He did have training. He was basically in the Special Forces of the MP's. They were trained to be able to take out Delta Force guys on a drunken bender.


    He had naturally honed aggressiveness.

  • Saw the latest episode of WOT, and there was good and bad to it. (See? I can be reasonable.)



    I think "skipping" the visit to Caemlyn will work out better. Like I said of skipping Baerlon, it's only really there to introduce settings and characters that would be used later, but don't have much of a purpose now. And if Liandrin is already away from Caemlyn, then she won't have the prophetic moment in front of the court about Rand.


    I wish they'd stuck more to the books for the Ogier (I say it in my head Oh-Jee-Er), but I can understand the change and actually like it.


    Perrin's introductions to his powers is a decent work around. I'd have stuck more to the book because it introduces a wolf as a character that becomes important later on.



    The bad: The whole warder arc was a GIGANTIC waste of fucking screentime. The way the book handles it is so much better. Basically if an Aes Sedai dies, the warder goes nuts and gets into a battle rage. Often getting themselves killed in the process. Had they done this, it would have saved ~10 minutes of the episode for actual important information, AND conveyed what would happen at the same time.


    By stilling Logain, they take away from the moment when he sees and realizes who the Dragon Reborn actually is. Now they almost played this perfectly by having Logain start to laugh maniacally at Mat and Rand. With the implication that *wink wink* he's laughing at Mat. But then, as this director is wont to do, he shits all over the moment by having it shown as a hallucination of Mat's.


    By having Egwene knife that Child of the Light, it removes the BIGGEST foil to Perrin's story for the ENTIRE series. Literally. From book 1 to book 13 (of 14), the Children of the Light hunt and dog Perrin the entire way. But to quote the Critical Drinker, they're just like ,"Nah, it'll be fine."


    The worse: They are still treating channeling like it's some intangible do-everything magic. Like the ability to "smash your fists down on the piano keys" will miraculously produce music. More powerful people smash harder, and produce "better" music with no skill. Mary-sue bullshit of the worst order.
