Megalopolis seems like a bit of an outlier here because of how much of a labor of love this was for Coppola personally. Most of the film’s funding came from Coppola himself and I’m sure he used a few of his connections he’d made over 50+ years in Hollywood to get it produced, but I don’t think anyone involved ever expected a narrative-heavy sci-fi(?) film to break any box office records in 2024.

As for the rest of the movies mentioned, I feel like it’s a combination of A) too little incentive to see a movie in theaters and B) film budgets seem to be wayyy too high for the final product.

I'm so sick of every single medical-related question people have online constantly getting spammed with 'talk to your doctor!!!!'

The way people online constantly say ‘talk to your doctor’ like it’s a panacea is a lot like how medieval peasants weren’t able to read scripture and they just had to trust their clergy’s interpretations...

Home Depot will hire only the ugliest, most beer-bellied men and literal 10/10 college girls. There are no in-betweens. Go to your local Home Depot and look.

Ever wonder why you never see Clark Kent and Superman in the same room?

Also, let me guess that the OOP also believes that the second amendment should be abolished and that we can peacefully vote the police out of existence? The left’s aversion to responsible firearm ownership will be (and, is) the literal death of them. I fear.

Sorry but I’m not going to take orders from a cop

I think you’re reading into it a bit much. Cops love to rile people up to break the law. They get off on it. I was just making a joke off that

Are we even sure that Sisyphus can make it to either location? Because in order to reach a destination he must first make it to the halfway point, right? But to make it there, he’s gotta make it to that point’s halfway point, but before he gets there he need to…

I know this is an unpopular opinion in the live music community but you are an inexcusable dick if you dive into a crowd, full stop. No one at the front wants to catch your 200lb ass. Seeing a band member do that immature shit (and paralyzing a fan in the process) is a good way to make sure I never listen to them either

Loud music and a reason to squeeze yourself into your way-too-tight leather vest from highschool isn’t an excuse to turn yourself into a human wreck ball. The pit is usually a few rows back for a reason.

British people be like: “meter pics?”

Kevin Costner on physical media: "DVD is not dead" (www.joblo.com)

“Death of the what? DVD is not dead, at all,” Kevin Costner said. “That’s what they’d have you believe. Maybe it’s not making the same amount of money, but just try to go ask for that from the studio. They won’t give that up. A lot of people that like my movies, they can’t get to a theater, and they’re waiting...

Honestly props to him for saying such a controversial take. I don’t entirely disagree either

One of my favorite instrumental albums of all time. Here’s a wallpaper I made for my phone a few years back https://lemmy.world/pictrs/image/ec9894f0-af13-42a4-82f0-2285acc5b57f.png

Ford has been mismanaged and only kept alive through BS, anticonsumer protectionist policies for decades at this point. It’s my opinion that they genuinely don’t even know how to run a successful business because “going under” hasn’t been a real concern for them for longer than most of the executives have been at the company.

Ford makes money hand over foot making the best trucks for a while now

Ford has average reliability

best truck on the market

Well which one is it? I’ve literally only seen suburban LARPers who can’t even thread a ratchet strap buy or defend Ford trucks. I’ve spent decades of my life on construction job sites. You wanna know how to separate the serious career guys from the burnout cons? The smart ones are driving paid off Toyotas and the idiots have light duty domestics.

most potential truck buyers

Most potential truck buyers are car buyers who get upsold on the lot.

Toyota fanboy

I honestly hate a lot of Toyotas and Japanese cars in general. Very sterile, boring, but their reliability and repairability is just a known fact, which is why I would only recommend the brand to people who only need a car as an appliance. I am an unapologetic fanboy of vintage Volvos though.

He literally said there is no reason to ever buy any other vehicle than a Toyota.

I said that I’d never recommend anything maker other than Toyota for a new car buyer, which I wouldn’t. There are no other makers right now with as strong of offerings as Toyota left. Some makers have competitive models, but no brand has as solid of a reputation.

Also wrong about the second part, I said that the stick Tacoma was more fuel efficient than the automatic, which I’ll admit is not the case anymore

Ah, yes, the American consumer. Famous for their great financial judgment and ability to live within their means.

You fundamentally have misunderstood why Ford is successful

Protectionist policies, corporate lobbying, hostage market, historical opposition to union labor, and outsourcing production to Mexico and China? I understand those reasons well.

You type like you’re from Twitter (currently X) and I recommend you go back.

Had a real waking up moment last week leaving one of my favorite venues seeing the band Chat Pile in a crowd of crusty, unwashed, punks, only to look at the parking lot after the show and see it filled with current model year Teslas, Mercedes, etc.

I don’t disagree with your sentiment taken in a vacuum, but gentrification (of housing and activities in general) is 100% a real thing and is almost always due to rich people trying to live a “frugal lifestyle.” Idk man, shit just sucks all around

They’re phenomenal live, I’ve seen them twice in Asheville now and considered driving down to the Chattanooga show haha. Did he do the movie trivia bit with your crowd?
