  1. I don't see a single reason to debate, or argue or goad someone who's opinion is: this was wrong. The guy stabbed many, literally heartbreakingly tortured his partner, the list goes on and on. I see a lot of the justification from his die-hard fans ignoring the situations themselves in favor of "He sounds/looks so sad i hate it so much". It's simply no excuse. To me, at least. Alive or not, I don't like that they did this, and I'm grateful I feel the way I do. Abuse is abuse is abuse, and I couldn't ever agree nor deny that I'm perhaps biased based on a situation of constant emotional abuse that I faced. It wasn't physical, but it was brutal- And I felt trapped, in a prison. And when I hear him address his actions, when I hear him speak with her- I hear the person who hurt me. It's eerily parallel. I think, I struggle with a lot of factors in regards to this. One of the biggest being, as others have pointed out Mark has seemed to really speak out against many things and situations that contradict agreeing to something like this. Travis does a million and one collaborative things with artists outside of Blink, I can't for the life of me understand why they tag teamed for this. Just affects me, I guess. Hurts my head. I won't say fuck you to a single friend who shrugs this off, or appreciates and likes the song and isn't afraid to say it. It's catchy all the way through, to me. I love the mumbling. I wish Mark wrote songs like this more often. In fact, it was the first song I've heard him part of in years that REALLY surprised me. But it hurts to listen to, and that outweighs all of those points as far as what I personally am capable of embracing, and taking in. Call it a weakness, it may very well be one. I've had a long few months. Things are a little ugly in my world, and if you know me well enough, you know that during these times things get to me far more than most might imagine they should get to anyone. And that's fair, but it's just who I am and I'm doing my best to embrace it. To like it.
  2. You were expecting Not Another Christmas Song to be Just Another Christmas Song?
  3. Travis has collaborated on so many things separate from Blink. Can't really wrap my head around this situation.
  4. Why they were part of this is fucking beyond me.
  5. Oz is something fucking else, man. As soon as you start it, let me know what you think. In my opinion it was pretty much the originator in the wave of edgier content shows. Edit: I wanna share my thoughts on top of your thoughts - The West Wing - I feel like I'm slowly getting closer and closer to wanting to watch this enough to actually watch it. American Crime Story surprised the shit out of me. I watched the entire first season in a day. John Travolta surprised the shit out of me too. The Wire is one of the greats in my opinion. I'm a huge gangster movie fanatic, but can't, despite everyone I know begging me to will myself to watch The Sopranos. I don't see the originality I guess? It seems like it's basically Analyze This. I heard Peaky Blinders is unbelievable. I still need to check it out as well. Season one of True Detective was so fucking fantastic. I don't know what happened in season two, but despite hearing great things about the third season I still feel like I'm not "ready" to dive back in. Dr. Who - I was visiting my cousin, and her and her husband were watching it. I saw an episode. I do not understand the love this receives at all. I'll go as far as to say I disliked it incredibly, and found it dumb and cheesy. Power Rangers Sherlock Holmes. West World was so weird for me. I watched all of season one, it wasn't a chore but I to this day can't figure out if I was hooked or not. Haven't got around to season 2, it was just a really strange experience for me. Have you seen Barry? I watched both seasons in two days. Couldn't help it. Love it. And PLEASE add The Handmaid's Tale to your list. I went in blind, not knowing what to expect at all, but the name for whatever reason made me feel like it was going to drive me bored-crazy. It's by far my favorite TV show of all time.
  6. The Irishman is a masterpiece.
  7. Something I never understood, granted I’m not a fan of this series- at the end of episode three when Darth Vader asks about his wife he’s told that his anger killed her, right? Wouldn’t that make a person NOT wanna be part of the dark side? I still think about that moment sometimes and scratch my head. The response felt like it hinted that joining the dark side was bad for him, not good.
  8. No, not really. They have fun with it, and don’t take it incredibly serious either.
  9. I do think it’s always sunny doesn’t get the credit it deserves for actually feeling like a modernized take on a traditional sitcoms.
  10. I wish more people would admit that Coldplay is really fantastic. These two performances genuinely move me-
  11. No, not at all. In fact, I would want somebody to judge my film based on my script because that would mean the script paints a clear enough picture of what it wants to be. And if it's a ___ type of movie and they say "this isn't for me, because I'm not a fan of ______ movies" I'm not gonna get butt hurt, I'm gonna feel relieved because "this person could tell from reading my script what kind of movie I'd like it to be." I read something and had no desire to see it based on what I read. No different, just closer to the real deal as reading a book and not liking it and finding out there's a movie based on it. You probably won't go see it. And again, based on reading multiple drafts included in there the shooting draft I feel I have every right to have an opinion.
  12. If you read both the first draft and shooting draft of something and the genre remains clear, that's how... and the friends who've hit me up saying they saw it and disliked how art house it felt. It's not a blind knock.
  13. Mike is wrong. Seinfeld is the best. Was gonna break it down with a really long explanation, but then realized I don't have to when it comes to blatant facts.
  14. What I read when I read the script didn't work, and the trailers didn't make me want to see it at all. I just felt like, to me, it looked so art housey and try-hard. I guess my annoyance with him sounding too 'above this' in regards to a crossover is, I do not think he's above it. Not with that, and not with a superhero movie.
  15. I believe it was Todd Phillips himself who said Joaquin's Joker would never be part of Matt Reeve's batman film, or any for that matter in a way that made it seem like they didn't want to so much as entertain the idea. It's like, cool dude- I didn't see your movie, but a lot of people liked it and you could totally build on it and do some great things for fans, but if you're too cool for school you're too cool for school. I bring this up, because I saw this, and as much as I dislike super hero movies (and I do to the extent that I applaud Scorsese for preaching the gospel truth about Marvel) sign me up for this:
  16. I think it's actually making cinema rounds right now.
  17. Salvation was fucking abysmal.
  18. Doesn’t make that right in my opinion.
  19. Yeah not calling their music shit, I guess I’m just surprised by how certain bands in this genre are able to catapult while others aren’t. Does that make sense?
  20. Time out lmao are they legit selling tickets to their comeback show for 150 dollars
  21. i am shocked by the fact that this band is so popular/gets so much love.
