    Sticky: Re: Cartoon Network

    I have yet to see any justification for why the designs are bad, just a sweeping declaration that they are. Which is in pretty stark contrast to Wagomus breakdown of their intent and merits.

    Apparently its an actual term used in engineering, fiction and thought experiments

    Re: why do people hate James Cameron's Avaturd?

    I wouldn't call it shitty, just aggressively middle-of-the-road. Perfectly functional, not too memorable. Aside from the main character being impossibly bland (and the whole White Savior thing), my...

    Re: Star Wars Universe - Resurrection F

    A good portion of Last Jedis score is explainable by review-bombing - i.e. deliberate mass targing the aggregated score by angry fans. If you look at other measurements, such as "exit polls" taken by...

    The subject of the video? Extremely not good. The video itself, covering said subject matter? Very entertaining.

    To me, Kylo Ren as the First Order leader was an excellent story hook. He's not a cackling manipulator or a ominous enforcer, he's a mess of self-doubt, petulant self-entitlement and barely...
