"The creator" feels no remorse creating people with the "wrong" sexuality or gender identity, and automatically condemning them to hell. I don't see why he'd have any more sympathy for the people praying the wrong god. He's clearly a cruel, twisted asshole, after all.

Why would anyone play your games on hardware that's ten years behind? The few Nintendo games I still buy (like Tears of the Kingdom actually) I still play on emulator, because it's objectively better in every way. Fuck off.

It's not so much that they changed things, if anything it's extremely faithful in the overall plot progression, it's mostly just... really shoddy.

Characters are devoid of any personality or life, the dialogue is some of the worst expository garbage I've ever had to endure, and they just keep missing the point of critical moments and character beats.

Like just to give an easy example, upon being told that he's the Avatar, Aang in this version does NOT run away. He just... goes on a little trip on Appa to lighten up, and it just so happens that this is exactly when the fire nation attacks, and he accidentally gets caught in a storm and gets trapped. Running away was key to his character, it's a crucial, character defining moment. It leads into his genuine feelings of guilt for abandoning the world, and his whole arc in the show is about slowly accepting the responsibility that terrified him back then.

And that just keeps happening, super important scenes like that get butchered for no reason, completely erasing the meaning behind them. It feels like they went about the show in a very utilitarian way, believing that as long as they could get the characters from point A to point B, it didn't matter what they changed. The original is so good at that, so good at symbolism, so consistent in its characterization that you're often able to predict how a given character will react because you know them so well.

I think that's what pissed me off the most, and combined with the goddawful dialogue (seriously I can't stress enough how bad the dialogue is), and a lot of gratuitous fanservice (lots of characters and scenes appear much earlier just to show them off lol), and you end up with a show that's extremely hard to sit through if you have any affection for the original.

I really hated the Netflix show, but I'm very happy it's getting some people to watch or rewatch the original. Enjoy!

You'll get called dramatic for saying that but Republicans are absolutely eyeing a form of trans genocide; removing access to treatment and creating as hostile and dangerous an environment possible for trans people. They want us to disappear.

We've had more than enough proof he's on team Putin, I personally don't need another.

Him speaking to Putin then constantly asking for Ukraine aid to cease.

I'm always happy to explain the distinction to people, I know it's a nebulous topic for a lot of cis folks who can't relate much. Then I see OP's first comment about "drag queen land" and realize she's just some alt right troll and isn't here to genuinely engage with the topic. Bigots gonna bigot I guess. Be a bit more subtle next time.

I just think the sport is really neat.

The ads are pretty overkill even compared to what I see here in Europe during the soccer world cup, and yeah athletes are paid ridiculous amounts, but at the end of the day it's a lot of fun to watch, at least for me. It's a battle of both wits and raw athleticism between people pushing the limits of what the human body can do. That's super cool, and all the story lines that arise or crumble from the competition are immensely entertaining to follow.

When you get down to it capitalism tarnishes everything anyway, a lot of entertainment media is very much just vehicles to sell even more shit, but they can still be enjoyable in and of themselves.

I think there's some NFL pass things that allow you to do that, actually, where you can watch everything whenever. A lot of them aren't accessible from Europe sadly, but if you're American there's plenty of options for you.

There's also sports anime lol
That's how I got introduced to American football, watching and reading Eyeshield 21, and it got me interested in seeing the real thing. Sports anime are pretty cool since they present you with a curated narrative with lots of ups and downs, and they're usually a lot harder to predict than traditional shounens, since losing doesn't doom the universe or something. They're genuinely a nice entry point to sports in my opinion, at least if you enjoy anime already.

That's definitely part of it yeah, soccer is more continuous, so they can't cram ads in like they can with football. There's still a lot of it, but it's not as crazy. American football is openly about ads as much as it is about the sport, it's pretty nuts.

I'm really worried he'd straight up help Russia tbh. Why wouldn't he?

Tetra,

Won't be shocked if he tries. He's gotten away with lots of things he couldn't do, and if he's reelected the line is gonna get even blurrier. I don't know what could really happen and I'm not interested in finding out.

I watched the playoffs for the first time ever this year, and holy shit that ad was cringe inducing.

Hey is 2001 : space oddyssey still worth watching ?

I know it set some sifi benchmarks and introduced ideas , concepts when it was released . But is it worth watching now as we have more films better or not with same concepts ? Does it still hold up ? Does it have any plot holes ? Is the story good ? How is the pacing ? What about the characters are they fleshed out ? All in all...

Look I'll just say that I hadn't seen it until just about a year ago, had been spoiled of most of the plot and many iconic scenes, and it still became possibly my favorite movie of all time.

That movie has held up unthinkably well in every regard, even the effects are still superb. It's a masterpiece and you very much should watch it.

All crypto is essentially designed around competition for who gets to be the one mining it. Things escalate, and that's how you end up with these ridiculous crypto farms that use as much power as entire cities. No crypto currency is "green". And UNLIKE cars, lights or banking, crypto serves no purpose, it's currency that doesn't get spent, it's basically just there to fuel speculation for tech bros.

Crypto is a complete waste of energy, it's not 'big money spinning Bitcoin as negative', it's just objectively idiotic, don't listen to that comment.

If you haven't, I recommend watching Dan Olson's documentary "Line Goes Up" on Youtube.

Difference is that crypto is barely even a currency, it's basically just a vehicle for speculation. Visa is actually useful.

I'm glad the article mentions that in this case, it really doesn't matter; like, there seems to be nothing to 'pollute' on Mars (also 7 tonnes is not much at all). Bit of a strange headline to me.

Tetra,

I suppose so, but I believe they always make sure not a single trace of Earth life is left on the equipement they sent to Mars, for obvious reasons. So they already control for that.

Besides looking pretty messy, I'm not sure this does any harm.

Billionaires really need to stop stealing their ideas from viral joke tweets.

Judge dismisses Disney suit against DeSantis over special tax district (www.washingtonpost.com)

Judge Allen Winsor of the U.S. District Court for Northern Florida ruled that Disney “lacks standing to sue the governor” and that the law it was suing over was constitutional. He also noted that the changes lawmakers made to Disney’s former special district “works to Disney’s significant detriment” because “now it...

There are so many subs on Reddit that would be a perfect fit for an alt right nutjob like you, idk what you're doing on Lemmy/Kbin. Go be with your friends, shoo.

Had the movie not come out, no one would be excited for this, no one would care how "more faithful" it looks.

At the end of the day this adaptation has no reason to exist, and I have no expectation it'll be any good.

Hope I'm wrong, of course.
