I just dislike how tumblr-ish the writing feels. Jax made me cringe. I liked ragetha and pomni though. The whole thing about pomni wanting to find an exit and forgetting her life before the circus is so interesting. I can't wait to see them expand on it.

The sad thing about zoomer trends is that they come and go so fast. Becoming "cringe" because of how short the average attention spans are now.

Most anime now is japanase pedo otaku escapist self-insert fantasy so yeah >>31681 they're totally aware of it, they just care about the main female character design because of all the figures and dvd sales they can get from it after they create the "perfect seasonal waifu"

This shit it's so true, I can't watch american movies with other people it always happens and it's so awkward. I remember that one time when I watched a biopic about the bang bang club, the photographers were in Africa taking pictures of poor people dying of starvation and other tragic shit and then suddenly there's a sex scene wtfffff

Right now I very much dislike the focus on magic systems in current fantasy in general, and particularly despise how those "systems" are just blatant, unashamed game mechanics in Japanese fantasy. There's a modern manga tendency to even go so far as to make game menus pop up in front of the protagonist's faces reading off their stats and spell lists…

Magics should feel as though they have their own personality, not just their own rules. What makes magic transgressive, what made magic such a menace to public safety that pagan Rome would hang those who practiced it, is that it is intentionally calling upon the gods to curse and damn and condemn. The crime the poet Apuleius was almost convicted of, which carried a sentence of death, was the use of sorcery to concoct of a love potion. When so much of the public life of Rome was built around propitiating the gods the witchmen and poisoners would intentionally piss them off to call down curses and mishaps while under the impression that they, like Sisyphus, could simply outwit and evade the wrath that they themselves had summoned against society, leaving only their targets struck. A love potion is a manufacturing of Aphrodite's curse, the mania of love, fully destructive and volatile; a deliriant the madness of drunkenness from Dionysus, distilled beyond the moderating limitations of wine; foretelling, the madness of prophesy from Apollo, snatched like a thief without paying the price of devotion worked by the Pythia; a poison, the power of Ares called through murder without requirement of physical courage, angering the lord of battles in such a way that the whole city will pay as war will surely follow. Each act, each curse, each grimoire is filled with the personalities of the beings and spirits that the practitioner is in communion with, no less than the ritual sacrifices and secret rites of devotion for the gods. Forbidden magic is not just asking for the wrath of the gods to strike someone; that might as well be a public prayer for justice. Forbidden magic is intentional sin committed in such a way that the gods will strike, but the transgressor steps away from their strike; disguising themselves from the god of darkness they offend through wearing candles and mirrors, leaving only the hair, skin or blood of their victim as evidence of who the god shall smite; hiding their deceit from the goddess of love by raising cacophany, foul odors and offensive signs until the love potion is brPost too long.

I honestly think that anime these days are made for failed narcissists. Narcissists are very good at taking credit for the positive actions of others. One one hand, losers who watch anime vicariously live through protagonists who are surrounded by helpful friends while going on great adventures and defeating "evil" to become numbah wan and get adored and praised by people around him, and on the other hand, losers watch anime like Love Live and feel good about being with the girls throughout their journey and take credit for their success because they supported them.

It's sad that studios don't want to take risks anymore, and they mostly play safe by adapting successful media like light novels and manga and piggyback over it, or they just produce something original with an interesting premise but same old rehashed plot formulas. Studios get requests to make sequels but they're still obliged to produce only what their clients request them to, and they care more about money than artistic endeavors.

Anime in the past really had to pull hard punches to stand out, and were ready to take serious risks. Now it's all about sales or else you just shut down the shop. No fucks given about art, you just have cheap CGI instead to cover budget.
I don't even want to talk about sexualization of minors.

What ruined the medieval fantasy genre? Anonymous 32668[Reply]

Feels like every Western made medieval fantasy has over the top gore and explicit sex scenes. While anime's medieval fantasy is just female exploitation and male power fantasies. Makes me nostalgic for the days of wholesome talking dragons and wise powerful wizards guiding groups of adventures.

Watched that in theaters with my boyfriend when it was new since he's an A24. He hated it and thought it was boring, but the mood and atmosphere was better than I expected expected. Was well shot, and those horror elements gave it a distinct personality. Would give it a strong 7/10, ending was great.

Anonymous 32784


I took a nap and continuee it.
I watched the parts with the lady and the lord in the manor at x2 [such a shame] but you are right, non the ending was… amazing and it all made sense!

Maybe I'm just overthinking but this thread actually made me realize that the main character is actually a Game of Thrones main character archetype - womanizing, lying, self-absorbed, sexually active, opportunistic, etc. person who got thrown into an Arthurian era where chivalry was expected from a knight, and no wonder he fails miserably.
I was laughing when the Green Knight went "dude, you had a whole year to become courageous why are you scared?".

Maybe the thing that ruined medieval fantasy is moids writing narcissistic characters who are victorious instead of being shamed for being unknightly like in this movie.

You're not completely wrong but even going back to the days of Tolkien it wasn't strictly for kids. It was always bloody at times. I think "infantilized adults" are more why you see things like Bluey and The Amazing Digital Circus exploding in popularity. I think for fantasy the answer is a lot simpler, which is that fantasy authors felt they weren't being taken seriously enough and then decided to make it "more mature" in ironically, the least mature way possible. It worked for GoT because HBO picked it up and anything with incest and boring political arguments will win over HBOs retarded audience.

Anonymous 32788

I remember seeing a review on this, it does seem like the type of movie that's a bit better if you already know the story beforehand and can tell what they changed and why.

Zarya is so fun once you get rolling. I used to play flex which in practice meant tank and support but in OW2 it just means support so I stopped playing altogether.

From purely a gameplay perspective ignoring character.


Spend the most amount of time as Roadhog and it was funny to watch him go through nerfs and buffs each patch. Haven't played the game in years though, well before Overwatch 2. I Was planning to get back in for the solo mode since I'm not a big pvp fan, but that didn't end up happening. lol

Good choice, she might be my favorite female character in the game, awesome gameplay and interesting personality.

The show is actually decent and gets better as the series goes on. While All Hail King Julien started mediocre and devolved into randomness for the sake of randomness. Becoming borderline unwatchable in the later seasons.

>What have you watched recently?
The Day Shall Come by Chris Morris. The plot is kinda hard to explain but it's a satire film about a group of black nationalists in America who get set up by an FBI sting operation and try to game the system. It wasn't quite as comedic as his other stuff but in terms of satire its by far his best.

>What is on your to-watch list?

Pixote: a Lei do Mais Fraco

>Favorite genre, topic, director, actor/actress, and so on?

I don't really have a favourite director or actor or anything. But I tend to like older, out-of-the-way dramas and thrillers. Wake In Fright is a movie I've become obsessed with recently. I think it's a horror film that doesn't use any horror film tropes and that's really interesting to me

Anonymous 32750

Akira didn't really grab me as much as I thought it would tbh. I should give it another watch. Also, what themes do you see in Akira that parallel today's society? Apart from the whole "high-tech but living in poverty" thing I thought it was mostly just a character-focused film.

How I wish to watch this again for the first time


Anonymous 32773


I finished watching In The Mouth of Madness.

I thought it was entertaining but that's pretty much it. It's not a must watch or a masterpiece. Just something to watch if you want jumpscares, good special effects and an interesting story that's still interesting. Typical John Carpenter, meanwhile The Thing and They Live were something else more than that.

It's interesting to see what would happen if a Paranoid Schizophrenic was actually right.

Anonymous 32783

90s Carpenter is divisive, but Mouth of Madness is probably the best work of that time. Strong agree on it not holding a candle to The Thing or They Live, but the premise is very original and the scene from your picture really delivers. Wish it turned out differently because I think a much better movie hiding in it.

Here are some I'd recommend because they're single volume works and you don't need to worry about tracking down multiple volumes. Sandman and Lenore would be multi-volume works I'd recommend because they're light horror.

Green River Killer: A True Detective Story by Jeff Jensen
Our Cats Are More Famous Than Us: A Johnny Wander Collection
Patience by Daniel Clowes
Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi
