NINJA : SILENT ASSASSIN * Final Battleyoutube thumb
Am I the only one who loves Godfrey Ho ninja movies? I remember our old video store had them and 8 year old me always checked out a tape a week. Believe it or not that scene is actually subtle compared to what he usually did.

So The World's End was really good.

Kick Ass 2 wasn't horrible, but it's a big step down from the first. I felt it spent so much time trying to be funny, I couldn't take it seriously when it wanted me to. Say what you will about the comic, but I think the way they dealt with the rape scene and the Colonel's death came off as unnecessary jabs.

Unnecessary, maybe, but there was nothing necessary about the original scenes. It's nice when someone points out, however obliquely, that Millar is a fucked up son of a bitch and a lazy writer to boot. I busted a gut laughing when the Motherfucker couldn't get hard. A hilarious change, IMO. I do agree that the first movie was a lot better though.

I agree with him for the most part.

I don't think we'll get rid of piracy, though, for two reasons:

1. There will always be that guy who feels entitled not to pay for anything. He feels art should be free, and that nobody who worked on something he loves and consumes on a daily basis deserves compensation. He has the money, he just uses it for other things.

2. There will always be the person who pirates because they physically cannot afford or buy the thing legally, or it is out of their price range. The guy who lives in a country where they thought there'd be no interest, the woman whose husband won't allow her to spend money on anything but him, the kid not old enough/too busy/who can't find a job. I don't know what to do about these demographics.

I notice a lot of people stop around there. Is it just a coincidence or does something happen at that point?
>> No. 38857
The reason I stopped was because the show had gradually been declining in quality. I finished that season for closure on the current story arc and just never went back to see what happened next. I can only imagine other people just got tired/fed up with the show too. There wasn't really any huge twist or change in the formula that pissed people off and made them stop watching (although I've heard about a twist that had that affect, but that came later).

At this point I'm almost considering picking up the show again, just because if it got THAT bad then it actually might be pretty funny to watch.

I'm afraid it's not that clear-cut here in Blighty. The Daily Telegraph is usually well informed (if Tory-ish), while the content of the Sun can basically be summed up as "PHWOOOAAARRR! CORRRRR! HUAAAHHHHH!"

There was a pretty clear divide between tabloids and broadsheets until the broadsheets started printing in tabloid size, but the old boundary still functions somewhat (except with the Independent, but no one reads that anyway, so fuck 'em).

So the Craig films are worth looking into? Honestly the whole reboot is just kind of making it hard for me to try them. I don't mind Craig. I don't even mind a darker Bond. I loved License to Kill. It's just a reboot? Bond continuity was that difficult to maintain?

Still think my favorite Bond was Moore. The man fought voodoo gods, midgets and Christophers (both in Lee and Walken).
>> No. 38982
They are okay as an action spy film and feeling a bit more like the older Flemming books. If you are looking for spy instead of Superspy then they'll be okay for you. Quantum kinda drags though since overall villain plot doesn't really go places. I feel Skyfall is the best of his films as it does a better job of a world weary hero dragged back into the fray pretty damn well.

I guess I'll try them. I mean Dalton's Bond was fairly down to earth and dark.

Skyfall wasn't entirely void of the oldschool Bond cheese, there was even a secret island supervillain lair leading to the mandatory I GOT YOU NOW MR BOND moment where the villain would go on about the mandatory exposition.

And come on, 007 turning an old, decrepit manor into a gigantic booby trap isn't really what I would call SERIOUS BUSINESS, just a different take from Bond using his quick wits to get out impossible situations with the set of tools at hand. I say Skyfall finally got the right tone that the other two Craig movies struggled to find, and the box office certainly supported it.

You can't deny that the retardation that the 007 franchise turned into had to be trimmed out. I find the later Brosnan flicks MUCH more painful to watch than even the most excessive cheesefests of the Moore era. At least with those you get the impression that the cheese is intentional and tongue-in-cheek and everybody was having fun.

looking around it seems they change part of their code so the program I use I'm going to have to wait for an update or use a command line program.
>> No. 39162

I think it has to do with DASH playback. I use a script called YouTube Center to disable it (which disables 480p and 1080p playback), and its FAQ page says the following about it:

>Dash Playback is a method on how a video should be buffered. If Dash Playback is enabled it will buffer the video in blocks. That means that every time you seek in the video it will have to rebuffer that block and it will not buffer the next block if you're not at the very end of the current block. If Dash Playback is turned off YouTube will load normally where you can pause the video and it will buffer to the end of the video and you can jump around in the video as much as you like.

So I’d assume that YT has switched over to full DASH playback for 480p and 1080p, which might explain why those formats no longer have download links via all the popular download services/scripts/extensions.

>To say much more is to take away some of the small joys in the unfolding mythology of the Paranormal Activity franchise. There’s not a lot of depth to it, and the mystery really isn’t all that captivating, but in combination with the other films, it’s interesting to see how it unfolds and intersects. You could probably outline the mythology from the entire five films in less than a paragraph, but by doling it out in tiny doses, the series continues to leave unanswered questions for future installments. Moreover, by not upping the stakes and by keeping the story intimate — centered on a small number of characters — the series doesn’t run the afoul of jumping sharks. By adding in small new wrinkles like the one at the center of Marked Ones, it can also avoid repeating itself. In fact, that’s a lesson that the superhero blockbusters could learn from the Paranormal Activity series: Bigger, louder, faster is not necessarily better (in fact, it rarely is) — the key to investing in the characters is to keep it small and intimate, and instead of stringing together one action sequence after another, gradually build to a more satisfying conclusion.

I find a quote paraphrase from Psych on proper remakes from their remake episode sums it all up in that a remake is "something that showed promise but failed and the remake tries to do it right."

I've been given a shitload of DVDs from my brothers, most of which are Steven Seagal movies:

Out For Justice
Fire Down Below
Nico (Above The Law)
Exit Wounds

Which of these are at least decent, and which can be safely deposited onto eBay?
>> No. 39794
Above The Law IIRC is Segal's first acting gig. Not a great film by any means (I mean, come on) but it's a decent late 80s action flick. The action is less retarded than in his later films, and it seems like they actually had the intention of portraying Aikido semi-realistically. Seagal hasn't yet become TEH SEAGAL we are all used to, which makes the movie a bit of a curiosity.

Out For Justice is probably my favorite out of that bunch (which does NOT mean it's a good movie. I mean, come on), with lots of pretty cool and brutal fights and actions cenes. IMO, this is the movie where Seagal starts being the aforementioned TEH SEAGAL full force.

Fire Down Below is probably the last movie before Seagal became a complete joke (as oppsoed to be a half-joke). Still, it's a competent action film if you want Steven Seagal being dont make me say it.

Exit Wounds is hilariously stupid, but I get the good feeling from wathcing it that the movie acknowledged it's stupidty and revels on it full tongue-in-cheek. Definitely watchable.

I also enjoyed Robocop, only thing they could've really done better was make fun of Twitter/Facebook by making his suit integrated with some social media app. I found that drone guy a little forced and jarring at times, but it wasn't a serious annoyance, and my brother liked how he got killed instead of repenting at the last second.

Also, Nut Job is actually a rather nice movie, with a more to it than the name and previews might suggest.
>> No. 39886
I actually liked the Drone guy, it was refreshing that he disliked Robocop not because the machine part, but because he was actually human inside.

I do find myself agreeing with that guy a LOT.

It was a nice, well made movie, but other than hittting the right white guilt buttons, I am not seeing how is any more noteworthy than other movies touching on similar matters.

I strongly disapprove of his animation response, but other than that, yeah, most of what he said seems reasonable.

He made a few choices based on favoritism or "they deserve it"ism, but it looked like he only did that when it was a tie breaker between two choices he thought equally deserved it.

My understanding was that it all happened because of the Comedy Central twitter feed only sharing part of the joke (the obviously racist part) without the setup (which showed how the "obviously racist part" was actually satirizing another organization and implying that theirs was just as racist as it would be if they did what Colbert was doing).

And once Outrage begins, people stop listening to rational explanations even if they ameliorate it--these people are angry, and the fact that being shown the context makes it clear the thing they're angry about was being given as a way of criticizing something else that they SHOULD be focusing their anger on doesn't make them less angry, because anger isn't rational.

The best scenario would be channeling that anger toward the thing Colbert was mocking in the first place. But I doubt it's going to happen. Either way, I wouldn't lose much sleep over it--the people who are angry almost certainly weren't viewers to begin with, and Comedy Central is not going to fire or censor Stephen Colbert over this. He makes them money hand over fist, and it was Comedy Central's own twitter feed that started this whole mess, not Colbert's.

I'm a bisexual Asian female of low socioeconomic standing (wowee, four groups for her to call me a traitor of!) and I hope Colbert tears into her as hard as possible for being the living embodiment of everything wrong with social justice warriors. The Tumblr tears will be delicious.

The complaint I'm hearing is that they claim to have gotten the satire, but that it's still wrong because it's using "ironic" racism to combat racism, and that as a privileged white male, Stephen has no right to invoke negative stereotypes about unprivileged groups even if it's for the beneficial goal of helping Native Americans. The stock phrase I see repeated almost mechanically at this point is "satire punches up, not down".

Personally I find this argument to be a load of self-serving horseshit. By that logic Swift should be panned too since he punched down at the Irish by painting them as a bunch of thieves and hoodlums whose babies should be food in order to get at the wealthy Brits. And it was fine and dandy when Dave Chappelle made an extremely similar joke about racist cops at the expense of Asians, down to the nature of the caricature. I wouldn't be surprised to see people say these don't count because Swift was using other whites as his collateral damage, or because Dave Chappelle is black and therefore gets to say whatever he wants about other races.

It sounds to me like people got mad, found out they were wrong, and now they're scrambling for excuses to stay mad. There was zero reaction to the original clip, or for all the other times he did the Ching Chong Ding Dong thing, or hell pretty much any example of Colbert "punching down" at other marginalized groups to make his point. Only after this particular tweet came out and Suey Park jumped on it was there any backlash.

I'm already seeing SJW howling for his blood for being a straight white able-bodied cis male who snatched the job out of the hands of more deserving comedians like... who exactly? Late Night is meant for only really experienced and well established comedians. You can't just affirmative action in someone obscure because they tick off a lot of diversity boxes. A lot of the SJW's nominees aren't high profile enough, don't have a consistently solid body of work behind them, or just plain aren't funny enough to get a large audience to tune in. And then when the show inevitably tanks because it's not entertaining the SJW would rather blame bigoted American for boycotting the show rather than, you know, the networks' choice not being particularly well suited for the job. Look at the idiots who seriously suggest Jessica Williams deserves to host The Daily Show over Stewart just because she's black and female.

Now if there were a lot of well established female or minority comedians with the same level of popularity as Colbert in the biz, then yeah I'd get some of the complaints. We are starting to see a change with the rise of folks like Tina Fey and Aziz Ansari. But as it is now the only other person at a serious position to compete with Colbert who belongs to any marginalized groups is Ellen Degeneres, and she seems pretty happy with her own thing. Gah, Colbert may have won the Suey Park battle but leave it to Tumblr to try to turn it into a full-fledged war.

I think Tina Fey would make an excellent host. A sexy, excellent host...

He *could* do some of those things; but, just like Conan losing the masturbating bear and other stuff when he went to whatever station he's on now (I forgot), a lot of his schtick is probably tied up with the show, which is likely owned by Viacom.

He'll likely have to leave behind most of his stuff; if we're lucky, he might be able to bring some acts that he hasn't used in some time (like The Threat Board). His character certainly can't go; even before the whole "CancelColbert" bullshit, it was fairly hard-line satire, and that won't sit well with CBS trying to do a super-generic late night talk show.

I will miss him dearly.

I don't think any of the current correspondents are that funny, to be honest. I find myself skipping many of their segments these days. The one exception is Jason Jones, because he's done a lot of interesting exposes recently.

Jon Oliver would have been a shoe-in after his run hosting TDS (and I think he would shine on his own; he was basically "British John Stewart" during the run), but he's with HBO now. Of course, the switch is a year off, so perhaps he would be able to come back?

John Hodgeman would make an excellent replacement for Colbert, character-wise, but I think he's doing other projects right now as well.

The Colbert/Carell/Helms/Corddry/Bee/Jones days were the best. And Bee and Jones are generally a lot better than most of the new correspondents.

I doubt it, I read in some articles Letterman actually had some involvement in picking Colbert. And besides a recent survey showed that Hall was the least well-liked late night host, while Colbert was number one. It's not hard to see why they'd gun for him from the getgo.

Kind of like a "Weekend Update", but a half hour and on weeknights. I would watch it, though the interviews (if any) would be odd: how do you have two people interview one guest at the same time? Maybe do more of the "round table" style setups, where they bring in multiple guests and just kind of moderate the discussion? (But then how do you plug a book/movie?)

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the most entertaining and frustrating movie I've seen in theaters. There were so many great Spidey moments in this film, but all the subplots barely go anywhere or tie up in a satisfying way. There's three plots in ASM2 that would have made fine future films, but for whatever reason, it's all crammed up in one. It's like director Marc Webb thought Sony were going to take Spider-Man away from him and he had to include everything he wanted to do with the franchise in the sequel.

I still recommend seeing it, because there are great scenes and performances here, but I'm not gonna pretend this is a perfect film. It's excessive and convoluted, but damn, I still had fun seeing it.
