  1. Star Wars Episode 8

    The most hilarious backlash are the people trying to start the conspiracy theory that Colin Trevorrow was some principled auteur director who refused to direct the follow-up to The Last Jedi because it mishandled Luke's character. And not.. just a bad director who got fired when Kathleen Kennedy saw Book of Henry.. I'm still not super confident in Episode 9 being written by the guy who wrote Batman vs. Superman and Justice League. Although, with all the rewrites on those, who knows what he actually did..
  2. Star Wars Episode 8

    I like this article on the influences The Last Jedi draws from and how they differ from Lucas' original trilogy inspirations.
  3. Star Wars Episode 8

    Yeah, Carrie and Mark were both amazing in this. Here is a great twitter thread on The Last Jedi, which eloquently puts into words why a lot of people loved the film:
  4. Being from Iceland, I remember being so fucking scared of the Yulecat and the Yulelads' mother and father. The thought of not getting enough new Christmas clothes and being eaten before Christmas Eve was terrifying. I always liked the Yulelads, obviously because they gave me gifts (except that fucker, Ladle-licker who gave me a potato), but as I grew older I slowly realized that their behaviour was creepy as shit..

    Happy holidays everyone!
  7. Star Wars Episode 8

    I saw someone posit something, on twitter I think, about a certain Leia scene. It sort of reframes it for me in a way I like. Anyway, I'd also like to add that Mark Hamill was fantastic in this film and it was amazing to see him get a great live action role after all these years and seeing him knock it out of the park.
  8. Star Wars Episode 8

    I loved it! It has its flaws, it was too stuffed with plot beats. But what a breath-taking and beautiful movie with a fantastic emotional, thematic core.
  9. GOTY of the Year

    It's Breath of the Wild for me. No doubt. Most played and most enjoyed game for me this year. Can still pick it up and end up playing hours of it without noticing. Wish I had a Switch so I could play it even more, but the Wii U must suffice for now.. Runner up: Prey!
  10. Hm, did you guys forget to update the Patreon podcast feed lately or is my podcast app glitching? I don't see this IIT ep or the latest IT on there.
  11. WIZARD JAM 6 // Welcome Thread

    I do *not* recommend using that in its current state. It's possible to make things with it, but it's... cumbersome!
  12. Cuphead!

    Alright. This looks like something I would never enjoy playing, but Holy Shit Look At Them Graphics! Like a 30s cartoon, it looks like! Ahhh, so good.. This is what I wish Epic Mickey would've looked like.
  13. Mr. Robutt

    I like this show a lot! Still a tiny bit disappointed that it didn't feature a literal robot called Mr. Robot...
  14. Yes! That final cliffhanger! Will Discovery finally get to some discovering?!
  15. Movie/TV recommendations

    That is one amazing 'stache. They should've CGI'd that onto Superman.
  16. I think the most natural solution is to just cut to a later time when the character has hung up. The weird thing to me isn't not hearing "goodbye" but rather that you linger on the character silently hanging up the phone.. Just show me the reaction to whatever impactful thing that was said and then cut! Cut away, end scene (or, if this is David Fincher, cut to dramatic wide shot of character alone in his kitchen contemplating the impactful words, with a bottle of whiskey and moody lighting)
  17. Plug your shit

    I haven't plugged my pointclicking series in a while, but today there's 25% off any art print on my site, with the promocode GIVEART25
  18. Super Mario Odyssey (One D, Two Ss)

    I haven't played the game, so maybe some of it looks hella ugly in-game, but the mishmash art direction I've seen from videos is a pretty big part of my attraction to the game. The art direction feels loose and fun in a way big budget games usually don't.
  19. Plug your shit

    Practicing sculpting in Blender again. Did an old man face (as I always do!) and then a fun character. Here's an animation test.
  20. Mindhunter

    Mindhunter had a 30-minute episode which was great and felt just as complete as any of the other 60 minute episodes and made me question my life and why the hell I watch so many streaming series that insist on filling 60 minutes with material that clearly wasn't long enough or interesting enough for 60 minutes. I'm looking at you Netflix's Marvel shows.. >:( I hope more shows start doing this! *Also* I liked Mindhunter quite a lot.
  21. Blade Runner 2049

    Also, unrelated to the movie:
  22. Blade Runner 2049

    Yeah, I just rewatched the original and that romance scene was... more than uncomfortable. I assume it was on purpose..? He wa very aggressive in closing the door and basically commanded her to say and do a bunch of stuff... then suddenly romantic sax kicks in. Was there some voiceover on top of that scene in the Theatrical Cut that made it seem more romantic or something? Watching the Final Cut and having never watched the Theatrical Cut, I just kept thinking I couldn't imagine how this entire film would even work with a voiceover... Anyway, I'm excited to see the new one tomorrow! Also, weird little goof: When Ford begins testing Rachel he doesn't actually lift anything out of the case (I don't know which cut this is from or if it's been fixed later):
  23. Fortnite

    Oh, wow, so they really *did* just outright copy PUBG!
