Day 1 (Sunday)

9:30 am : SO and Dog are still asleep, so I read in bed until SO wakes up. We have sex (Dog is not pleased) and then he gets up to work out while I keep reading. He basically bought a home gym when COVID started and at first he thought it might be a waste of money, but it’s actually proven to be a good purchase.
11:55 am: I’ve been intermittent fasting a bit to balance out my WFH snacking habits. I try not to eat before noon, but I’m starving, so I eat a small snack a few minutes early. Water our balcony plants, refill the bird feeder, then shower and perform my skin ritual. I scale this up or down depending on my plans for the day, but I have time and I was lazy last night, so I do all of it. I just added bakuchiol and I’m excited to see how it works. (Double cleanse with Hanskin Pore Cleansing Oil and CeraVe Facial Cleanser, then: Trader Joe’s Rose Water Toner, Amara Vitamin C Serum, TJ’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum, Handmade Heroes Bakuchiol Booster, TJ’s Eye Cream, Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream, and La Roche-Posay Anthelios 60 Ultra Light Sunscreen Fluid.)
1:00 pm: We have a Very Lazy Dog who never wants to take walks, but we drag him out before driving to meet a friend for a 1:30 brunch reservation. When we arrive, they’re behind and seem to have no idea when our patio table will be ready. My friend K brought her dog (yay!) but that means we can’t sit inside, so we have to wait. She’s a little shy and anxious (the dog, not K) but I brought her some treats, which she eats without hesitation.
1:55 pm: Finally seated! K’s pup keeps getting tangled under the table begging for more treats. K and I have drinks (SO doesn’t drink on Sundays so he has a soda) and we split some brussels sprouts as an appetizer. Avocado toast for K, a burger for SO, and avocado eggs benedict and two sweet potato pancakes for me (SO eats the potatoes that come with my benedict). We split the check, but SO takes mine before I have a chance to see it. He and I try to keep things relatively even, but we mostly just trust it’ll wash out in the end. He likes to pay when we go out but I usually buy the groceries. (We’re more disciplined about splitting big purchases.)
4:00 pm: Pit stop on the way home for SO to pick up more vape pods. He’s been planning to quit for a while, but his work has been super stressful lately and he keeps pushing his quit date back. I try not to get too annoyed about this – I know he’s trying and quitting sucks.
7:30 pm: I wake up from an ill-advised nap. We finish last night’s leftover sushi for dinner and watch the first Harry Potter movie. My friend Venmos me $163.71 to pay me back for a group purchase I placed a couple weeks ago and I immediately transfer it to my bank account.
10:00 pm: SO likes to be in bed by 9:30 and asleep by 10 because he gets up so early to work out, but I usually stay up later reading. Tonight, I actually have to catch up on some work that’s due first thing in the morning. Working in bed while SO and Dog snore next to me weirdly helps me focus (because I want to join them!).
3:45 am : That took longer than I thought it would! As I’m shutting down, I randomly remember a few things I need from Amazon. I’ve been trying to shop more responsibly, which means not using Amazon Prime. But a week ago I needed some stuff quickly and they offered me a monthlong free trial, so now I’m on an Amazon kick. I’ll cancel before the trial ends and then I won’t re-up for probably a year or so. I buy some mask brackets to try while working out, broom and mop grips for the utility closet door, some washcloths, and the next size up of a sweater I ordered and liked but was too small (I’ll return the other one this week). It takes a while to fall asleep (shouldn’t have napped earlier!). ($82.62)
Total: $82.62

Day 2 (Monday)

7:45 am : I wake up to the sound of SO ironing his shirt for work. He says he overslept (guess he missed his workout) and rushes out the door. I kiss him goodbye, get dressed, drink a glass of water, and log on to my computer. I check last night’s document one last time and email it to the client.
10:30 am: I take a break from work to pay my credit card bills, which are all due around the same time. ($1,100) I use a modified avalanche method – I make minimum payments rounded up to the next hundred, then I pay proportionally more toward higher interest balances. I know it’s not as cost effective but seeing significant progress toward all my balances is reassuring. I’ll make a second payment at the end of the month on my highest interest cards with however much money I have left over. Scrolling through Facebook, I see that the animal rescue where I got Dog is doing a fundraiser for vet bills for a sweet pup who needed emergency surgery. It makes me sad – I go snuggle Dog for a minute (who is still snoring in bed and is not happy about the forced snuggle time) and then make a donation. ($107.20)
12:30 pm: Made it to noon (and beyond) without eating! I was really hungry around 11:45 but then I got distracted, so here we are at 12:30. I microwave some leftover pork shoulder that I roasted last week and eat it with honey mustard. I have so much admiration for people who actually make meals for lunch. I mostly just cobble together whatever I have.
2:00 pm: While filling out this MD, I realize I can’t remember if I’ve paid the property tax on my car yet. I panic briefly because I can’t find the letter they sent, but then I remember I can look it up on the website and… I have not. Today is turning out to be expensive! ($110.22)
4:45 pm: Our engagement photoshoot is in a month and I’m starting to stress about what to wear. The COVID weight gain is so real (and I haven’t been working out like I used to). I buy an oversized sweater I’ve had my eye on that will hopefully be cute with skinny jeans (if any of them still fit me) and vow to return it if it’s not perfect. ($33.91) Then I walk the dog, who is just now getting out of bed and asking for attention.
6:45 pm: SO gets home! On Mondays I take a late workout class, so I get to see him before I leave. I toast an everything bagel and eat it with cream cheese while we chat about our days.
8:00 pm: Class! I asked one of the women in my class to make me two masks, which she brings me tonight, so I Venmo her $20.
9:45 pm: Get home from class completely wiped and am grateful to find that SO walked Dog before I got home so I can basically go straight to bed. (Dog never wants to go outside but he has yet to learn to use a litter box, so…) He’s asleep before I finish washing my face and I’m not far behind – out like a light by 10:30.
Total: $1,371.33, but at least most of it was bills.

Day 3 (Tuesday)

7:45 am : After hitting snooze once, I hop in the shower to wake up. Dog watches me do my skin routine from the bed, looking very annoyed that I’m up. SO texts me to walk the dog early because it feels like fall today, so I drag him outside after I’m finished with daily standup. This involves bringing the leash up two flights of stairs to leash him in bed before coaxing him down the stairs and out the door.
10:00 am: Our client has been migrating their document repository to a new system and there is evidently some confusion over who is supporting which migration effort. Everyone is calling all of the projects “System Migration,” so this honestly seemed inevitable. I spend a good chunk of my morning sorting this out so I can tell them confidently that we are not involved with the one they’re asking about. When I’m intermittent fasting, I routinely get hungry at 10am but I drink a glass of water and try to power through.
12:30 pm: Lunch! I heat up the rest of the pork and steam some veggies in the microwave. One of the most annoying things about SO is that he’s always craving delivery of some sort, even if I’ve planned a meal, so fresh produce often goes to waste in our house. I haven’t totally given up yet, but thank god for frozen veggies.
1:00 pm: I feel like this is going to sound like a ridiculous purchase, but here goes: SO’s favorite pen company is dropping a batch of limited release pens at 1pm (noon CT). I set an alarm and am refreshing the website repeatedly by 12:59 because SO has been coveting these pens for ages and last time they sold out in about 10 minutes. I have to start over when someone buys the pen I picked as I am checking out, but I manage to snag two– one as an anniversary gift for SO and one as a Christmas gift for my dad (anyone who knows me will tell you I really do start my Christmas shopping early – gifts and acts of service are my two big love languages). A few minutes later, the pens are all gone. ($403.86)
2:00 pm: We trained Dog not to rush the door when he hears the doorbell by giving him treats and now he RUNS to the treats whenever the doorbell rings, which it just did. I toss him a couple treats before retrieving the packages at our door. The sweater I ordered on Sunday is among them and although it fits better, I realize it’s too sheer, so I pack it up with the rest of my returns.
5:15 pm: I resolved to start Chloe Ting’s 2 week shred program today, but the 13 minute HIIT session leaves me totally wiped and feeling very out of shape. (Dog didn’t help – he was VERY in the way every time I got down for anything plank adjacent.) I skip the ab video and leave a little early to drop off my return at the UPS store before class.
8:00 pm: Out for drinks with two friends from class. It’s late to be eating but I also don’t want to drink on an empty stomach, so I order a wrap and take home the half I don’t eat. The fall cider I’m drinking is delicious. I order two crowlers (canned draft beer… well, cider) to take home. ($57.96)
Total: $461.82

Day 4 (Wednesday)

7:30 am: SO wakes up on the wrong side of the bed because he overslept again. I help him get out the door, walk the dog, then get on standup (I’ll shower after). I feel like I didn’t sleep well last night and my Whoop recovery score reflects this – only 31%.
11:00 am: My company closed one of its offices a while back when one of our big contracts ended, and they’re trying to get rid of all the furniture, which has been in storage ever since. I’ve been working at SO’s old kitchen table and a kitchen chair since we moved in May, so I drive the 30 minutes to the office to see what they have. It’s also really nice to see a bunch of my coworkers in person who I haven’t seen since COVID started or even before that. I wind up with an office chair, a mat to go under it, a whiteboard, and some assorted office supplies. The smallest desks they had were still too big for my home office (which is also our guest bedroom). Guess I still need to buy a desk after all. It’s 1:30 by the time I leave, so I stop by Panera for lunch on my way home: you-pick-two with half a chicken salad sandwich and a small broccoli cheddar mac and cheese. I also buy a lemon cookie for me and two chocolate chippers for SO (his favorite). $17.23
5:30 pm: SO texts that he’ll be home a little early! Dog will be thrilled (and me too, of course). I waffle about doing Chloe Ting Day 2 because I am extremely sore from class Monday and Tuesday, but I do the HIIT video and SO arrives home just in time to save me from doing the abs videos.
7:00 pm: I bake some chicken thighs brushed with TJ’s Honey Pale Ale Mustard and garlic and steam some veggies for dinner. SO doesn’t really like chicken, but he says this is good and has three pieces. Victory! I file this recipe away in my head. (I like to say he’s the pickiest adventurous eater in the world. He doesn’t like pasta/noodles, cheese, or chicken, but he loves the stuff that lots of picky eaters won’t eat: seafood, especially sushi, and all kinds of international cuisine. It’s nice having a partner who is always up for sushi night, but cheese boards and family style sides of mac and cheese are a challenge. I really hope our kids don’t decide to emulate his eating habits.) We walk the dog after dinner.
9:30 pm: Because my recovery last night was so bad, I resolve to go to bed at the same time as SO tonight… but he’s still asleep by the time I finish my evening skincare routine. In bed by 10.
Total: $17.23

Day 5 (Thursday)

7:45 am: I hit the snooze once because our neighbors woke us up around 1:30 blasting music and I didn’t fall back asleep for almost an hour. Still, I feel fairly well rested and my Whoop recovery is 83% (yay!). Do my morning skincare, drink some water, get online for daily standup, and I’m greeted with the news that my return has processed, putting $140.57 back on my card. (I’ll count this as a $25.43 credit for this week since one item I returned was the sweater I bought Sunday – the rest was from earlier purchases.)
10:00 am: It’s a light morning, so between emails, I spend some time bringing my new office furniture upstairs and organizing my desk area, then browse Ikea for a new desk. A new desk would also be motivation to finally unpack the last of the boxes, which all live in my office (the other rooms of the house are pretty much unpacked).
12:00 pm: Lunch! The half wrap from Tuesday night is a little soggy but still good. I eat that and then wander down to the garage to scrounge up the second half of my lunch from our deep freezer. Half of the freezer is my lunch stash – things I love but SO won’t eat. Pierogies sound delicious but I don’t have the patience to cook them right now. Instead I grab a box of TJ’s butter chicken and pop it in the microwave; I’ll mix in last night’s leftover veggies. While I wait for that to heat up, I mix some yogurt with salt and set it in a strainer to make labneh, then grab a resistance band and do some lateral band walks across the living room – my knee has been acting up lately mostly because I have weak, lazy glutes. The smell of food finally gets Dog out of bed, so I eat at my computer and then take him for a walk.
2:30 pm: My 2pm meeting ended very early and I have packages! My Soko Glam order from last week is here with some sheet masks, a new serum, and a pore control mask (my mascne has been horrible since I’ve been wearing a mask to work out lately). The sweater I ordered Monday also arrives. I try it on and like it, but I can’t decide if it’s too baggy. I snap a selfie to send to some friends for second and third opinions about whether I need to size down.
5:00 pm: I enter one of those “win a wedding dress” sweepstakes. I normally never enter these, but since I’ve been wedding planning I’ve been entering them like crazy. I know the chances of winning are so slim, but still. I briefly consider a Chloe Ting workout (I really should) but since I have class soon, I skip it.
8:00 pm: Done with class! I’ve been on a hunt for the best masks to wear while working out (that don’t make me feel like I can’t breathe). The studio owner makes the best ones I’ve found yet. I buy 3 for $40 from him. I pick up Chipotle (SO ordered ahead) and stop for gas on the way home. ($23.50) We eat while watching Space Force (a burrito for him, a burrito bowl for me, half of which becomes my lunch for tomorrow). Steve Carell’s character is just a different version of Michael Scott, but it’s mindlessly entertaining. Dog has to be dragged outside for a walk because it’s raining.
9:30 pm: I shower and do the Acsen pore control mask that arrived today. It’s a little tingly and smells really nice. Finish up my skincare and sleep nice and early again – I’m out by 10:30.
Total: Net $38.07 ($63.50 with a $25.43 credit)

Day 6 (Friday)

7:00 am: I wake up early today. SO is out the door before 7:30 and Friday standups aren’t until 9, so I squeeze in the HIIT video, then join an 8am stretching class my friend teaches on Zoom (this is “paid” for by my staff membership at the studio).
11:45 am: It was a very productive morning and now I’m ravenous. I start scrounging up lunch so I can eat right at noon before another meeting marathon begins at 12:30 which will last until 5. Leftover Chipotle and pita bread with labneh with olive oil and za’atar.
4:45 pm: Finally done (a little bit early)! I have a small bowl of ice cream as a Friday reward and watch a little Netflix. SO said he was going to try to leave an hour early from work today, but my money is on him leaving like 5 minutes early.
5:50 pm: I take Dog for a walk (he has literally been sleeping all day and hasn’t made so much as a peep). SO texts that he’s going to be late because of some last second drama at work. Sigh. Well, I guess now I have no excuse not to do some Chloe Ting. I do an ab video and a lower body video.
7:30 pm: SO gets home and immediately announces he’s going to work out, but sprawls on the bed with Dog for a while before getting a move on. I’m a little annoyed because I was looking forward to having dinner and spending some time with him, but his workouts usually take about 1.5 hours, so that would put dinner at probably close to 10pm (way too late for me, even if I wasn’t intermittent fasting – I don’t know how he eats a full meal and then goes straight to bed). Honestly, lately I feel like we aren’t spending much quality time together (scrolling on our phones next to each other doesn’t count) and every time I suggest an activity, he just wants to watch TV instead. I also get the news about RBG passing away and now I’m just extra sad. I watch a movie in bed and am half asleep by the time SO finishes his workout and comes upstairs.
Total: $0

Day 7 (Saturday)

8:45 am: Alarm goes off. I take 2 classes on Saturday mornings, so I roll out of bed and start getting ready, but SO derails me wanting to talk about last night, and we have it out. I struggle to explain that it’s not that I don’t want him to work out or that I don’t support his goals – it’s just that I would like him to prioritize me and our relationship at least as much as he does his workouts. We end at a bit of an impasse (with me crying, because I cry at everything) and instead of going to class, I take a drive to calm down. Driving up and down the GW Parkway with the windows down always makes me feel better.
11:30 am: I buy SO Starbucks as a peace offering and head home. ($6.05) When I get there, SO apologizes and promises to make more of an effort to do things with me that aren’t just laying on the couch watching TV. He suggests that we go out for a late lunch/early dinner and do a little day drinking, and that we can have a zoo outing tomorrow (plus he’ll work out while I hit the studio for class).
2:00 pm: After our respective workouts, we both shower and then walk the dog together. Then we go to the restaurant across the street, walking to take advantage of the good weather (and so we can both drink). We sit outside and split calamari and a dozen oysters. I have a steak salad with peaches and gorgonzola, and SO orders crab cakes. We each have two drinks and I take dessert to go (SO does not share my sweet tooth!). The check is around $170 (pre-tip); SO pays and we walk home.
7:00 pm: We watch a movie on the couch and keep drinking. I’m excited to crack open the cider I brought home the other day. After the movie, we take Dog out for a quick walk and then head to bed. Before going to sleep, I make a $107 donation in honor of RBG to be split between several Senate campaigns.
Total: $113.05

Weekly Total: $2084.12

Food & Drink: $81.24
Fun & Entertainment: $0
Home & Health: $117.19 (I’m counting masks here)
Clothes & Beauty: $33.91 (Net – $25.43 bought and returned)
Transport: $23.50
Other: $1,828.28

Weekly Reflection

All in all, I feel like I did ok this week. I spent more money this week than I expected – that being said, looking at how much of this week’s spending was in bills and donations, I’m not too upset about it. The pens were an unexpected and big expense, but I was going to have to buy those gifts eventually, so again, not too upset about it. (The cost is probably in line with what I’d normally spend on an anniversary gift for SO. The pen for my dad was a little more expensive than what I’d normally buy for him, but I know it will be a special gift.) Going out has also been an uncommon occurrence lately, but it felt good to be social again, and I would much rather spend money on going out and spending time with people than spend excessively on stuff.
I’m definitely a spender, which (as you can see) has gotten me in trouble in the past. I’ve been doing better lately and I’m also very good about returning things that don’t work out, especially now that COVID has increased my proportion of online shopping vs. in person. This week was also a little unusual because we didn’t buy groceries and SO picked up the bill every time we went out. (For reference, we went grocery shopping on Day 8, which I paid for. That came out to about $200 between Costco and the supermarket and will last us about two weeks – we buy in bulk when it makes sense and freeze what we won’t use immediately. That bill is on the low side because we just restocked the freezer within the last month.)
I guess one thing I’ve thought about a lot while doing this MD has been how SO and I split expenses. I personally think it’s pretty fair – he might spend a little more than I do in the end, but he is also the one who always wants to order delivery, so I don’t feel too badly about that. I realize this week wasn’t a great snapshot for demonstrating an even split, but I’m curious to know how it came off to you all as readers and your thoughts on splitting expenses with an SO without having to split every bill right down the middle and Venmoing each other all the time (there’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but it’s not how we work).

2020.09.14 05:41 autobuzzfeedbot 17 Movie Character Names With Incredibly Clever Meanings You Might Not Have Picked Up On

  1. In Wreck-It Ralph, the two donut police officers — Duncan and Wynnchel — are named after the famous donut chains Dunkin' Donuts and Winchell's Donut House.
  2. In Cheaper by the Dozen (a movie about a family with 12 kids), the family's last name is Baker — a reference to the term "a baker's dozen."
  3. In Dumb and Dumber, Jim Carrey's character Lloyd Christmas is desperate to be with Mary Swanson (Lauren Holly), who he has no chance with. If they did get married, though, her new name would be Mary Christmas — another reason why things were unlikely to ever work between the two.
  4. In The Incredibles, the last name of Mr. and Mrs. Incredibles' family is Parr — because they want everyone to think they are average.
  5. In The Goonies, the bad guys were named the Fratelli Brothers. In Italian, "Fratelli" means "brothers," so the filmmakers (having a little fun, I imagine) basically named them "the Brothers Brothers."
  6. In Elf, Buddy (Will Ferrell) and Jovie (Zooey Deschanel) name their baby Susie — likely to honor Buddy's biological mom, Susan Wells, who passed away after giving Buddy up for adoption.
  7. In Deadpool, the cab driver character is named Dopinder in tribute to a "really cool friend" of Ryan Reynolds' from grade school who tragically died after being struck by lightning.
  8. In Joker — directed by Todd Phillips — Murray Franklin introduces a guest on his show as an actor named "Ethan Chase." Ethan Chase was the name of Zack Galifianakis's character in Todd Phillips' earlier film Due Date.
  9. In Superbad, Seth (Jonah Hill) and Evan (Michael Cera) are named after the film's screenwriters, Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, who started writing the script when they were teenagers.
  10. In Up, the villain, Charles Muntz, is allegedly named after Charles Mintz, the real-life film producer with whom Walt Disney had a strained relationship (and whose professional relationship ended acrimoniously).
  11. In Rampage, whenever Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson's character Davis uses sign language to identify himself to the gorilla George, he signs "Rock" instead of "Davis."
  12. In The Invention of Lying, a movie about a world where everyone tells the truth, Ricky Gervais plays a guy named Mark Bellison who tells the very first lie. "M. Bellison" — which we see written on his office door — sounds a lot like 'embellishing,' which is another form of dishonesty.
  13. In the Fast and Furious franchise, Han Lue is briefly revealed to go by the alias Han Seoul-Oh, a reference to the Star Wars character Han Solo.
  14. In The Flintstones, Halle Berry plays a secretary named Sharon Stone. This name choice was more than just another "stone/rubble" joke (coupled with a modern reference). She was named that because the role was originally intended for Sharon Stone herself, but she was unable to do it.
  15. In the Bond film GoldenEye, the villain Alec Trevelyan (played by Sean Bean) is alleged to have been named after British film censor John Trevelyan, who notoriously disliked early Bond films.
  16. In Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, Brad Pitt gets into the Nazi film premiere by pretending to be a stunt man named Enzo Gorlomi. This is a reference to Enzo Castellari (whose birth name was Enzo Girolami), the director of the 1978 film Inglorious Bastards that helped inspire Tarantino's film.
  17. And in The Butterfly Effect, Ashton Kutcher's character is named Evan Treborn, which sounds like "event reborn." That, of course, describes his powers: the ability to go back and re-experience events from his past.

2020.08.24 20:52 THROWRACERA I [20M] Feel Like My Boyfriend [20M] Won’t Stop Paying Attention To Michael Cera

I know this sounds like a joke, but please bare with me. No idea what to do.
Me and my boyfriend have been together for about a year now, and things have been completely fantastic. I love the absolute shit out of him, and this is definitely the guy I plan to spend my life with. My issue, however, is that he has this obsession with Michael Cera.
When this first came up, I played along thinking it was a joke. I know that Michael Cera is a HUGE online joke that even I partake in being silly about. So when he would make jokes here and there, funny little videos regarding him, etc, I thought it was hilarious and funny. But things have taken a turn the longer we’ve been together.
He has THOUSANDS of images of him on his phone. I mean, I can scroll and scroll and it’s just him. He also watches most everything if it includes Michael Cera, and all the movies we end up watching include him. He also solely listens to Michael Cera’s MUSIC. (Yes! He makes music. I didn’t even know about this until he played him in the car on our second date. Again, thought it was some sort of funny joke.) Recently, while we were asleep, he began to grumble his lines from one of the various TV shows we watch including him.
Things haven’t come to a head yet, because outside of this he’s such an incredible partner and I just have played along for now. But I’m at a point where if I have to see Michael’s face again or hear him, I’m going to lose my absolute mind.
How can I bring this up to him? Do I even bring this up, as it isn’t hurting anyone? Any advice VERY appreciated.

2020.08.22 08:06 ziggityzagstardust just watched scott pilgrim vs. the world for the first time, and i found my new favourite film.

so, in my friend group, one of my friends is a fan of the film, and he sometimes makes references about it in conversations, so i talked to him about it, he said it was called “scott pilgrim vs. the world,” and he told me i should watch it, so i did, and i loved every minute of it. (shoutout to devan for the recommendation) the filmography was great, the cuts were so well placed, the angles, some of the lighting, perfect. the acting was great, not only could they legitimately not have chosen actors better than michael cera, mary elizabeth winstead, jason schwartzman, but also their acting was great, nothing seemed forced, everything felt completely natural. next, the plot. oh god the plot is amazing. the idea of the evil exes for the villains makes the whole thing so sequential and satisfying in leading up to gideon, and the “battle of the bands” theme makes it even smoother in between new villains. the quest for ramona just gives it all a perfect satin sheen, a perfect prize to such a journey. the little plot points like wallace being gay, nega-scott, him putting on that hat when someone says his hair is shaggy, and scott having previously dated kim add so much, with so little. the addition of knives was kind of my favourite though. the beginning sequence where they break up after seeing their relationship in its best dress made me feel sadder in 20 minutes then some films make me do in 80. the scene where todd knocks out her highlights and scott defends her shows that he still deeply cares for her, brings such a euphoric feeling in watching their relationship blossom, i couldn’t leave it out. and then the end where they completely make up feels like such a rewarding story arch that it almost could’ve just been the movie between the two, but in the quest for ramona, it makes it all the more sweeter. the fact that he legitimately saw her first in a dream gives it so much value between them, even though they’ve never even met. the party scene where they first meet in person is so charming, just the fact he knows she exists obsesses him, beautiful. watching their relationship grow in only a date makes his quest seem all the more sensible. the scene where they “break up” felt gut wrenching; all his progress for nothing, it just didn’t make sense, it could never. then when we meet gideon for the first time, evil ex is an understatement. the fact that he legitimately kept watch of her in that entire relationship with scott, and started controlling her as well, and the fact that he such an asshole made the other parts seem not as bad, it made so much sense. lastly the door. i couldn’t not forget the door. even though it isn’t a major plot point, it just makes the film work. her introducing scott to her little space in the world, it’s the cherry on top of the film, and the fact it ended on it closing, tears welled up in my eyes. next, the fight scenes. they are so well choreographed, they seem straight out of an old kung-fu film. i also love just how creative some ideas used to defeat the exes are: the blades coming out of scott’s heart, ramona somehow getting a massive hammer out of her handbag, todd losing his vegan powers because he ate a chicken parmesean, brilliant. they’re all so tight, that they give the movie the whole video game vibe it created. speaking of which, the references. at first, i didn’t exactly get them, but as i watched the film, they give the film such character it’d seem a completely different film if they’d’ve been left out. they perfectly characterize scott; an awesome, lovable geek, it’s no wonder they turned it into a video game. the jokes, the style of comedy used is perfect. the whole film i had a smile on my face. i especially loved the previously mentioned vegan police, the little seinfeld spoof, and also the desert in scott’s mind, such great inclusions. lastly, the soundtrack, oh the soundtrack! whomever had the idea to get beck to do the love song needs a medal. his soft, mellow, yet grand folk stylings fit so well with the relationship created in the film. also, the cuts by sex bob-omb, crash and the boys, and the clash at demonhead (technically metric) were all excellent additions. once it was done, i sat in my bed for about 10 minutes just to realize fully what i just watched; a masterpiece of cinema. i love this film. i’m going to do myself a favour and buy the books as soon as possible. sorry if this post sounds kinda rambly, i just watched this film an hour earlier, i’m writing this in the heat of the moment. i just had to share my experience with this film with a group who seem to enjoy it as much as i do now. tl;dr: i love this film. the action, the actors, the plot, the fight scenes, the references, the filmography, the soundtrack, every little piece. (once again, thanks for everything devan)

2020.08.11 04:05 KenAhegao [Scott-Pligrim] What do you think girls/women see in Scott?

I've re-read this story 4 times, and as I grow older and get into the dating scene I start to think about what do girls see in him?
He dates like 4 girls incredibly different girls, that are still completely infatuated with him (Ramona is the girl he ends up with. Knives tries killing a girl over him. Envy and Kim both have really complex feelings towards him, at least until the end. ) and one girl has a crush on him that last way past high-school, even when's she got an acting career. ( Yeah, if you forget about Lisa... It's not your fault. )
He's not really all that remarkable in any one particular way. You know...aside from being THE BEST FIGHTER IN THE PROVIDENCE. He's not as thoughtful or charming as Wallace or Stills, he's not as physically attractive as Lucas Lee or Toad Ingram. He has some charming witty-comments here and there that are pretty funny. But that's about it, other than that he's an asshole, hell the 6 volumes of the story are focused on his being an asshole and him growing out of that., and in the movie adaption ( Michael Cera does the best he can...bless his heart. ) Scott is more wimpy instead of sarcastic, so that kind of adds onto my question.
But women in the book are just drawn to him, like magnets.
Ramona hangs out with him once and she's already smitten with him, he forgets Lisa's name, and doesn't even show her any particular affection and she holds onto her affection for Scott for YEARS, Kim is the most vitriolic, reluctant to show affection character in the book and even she likes him.
Edit: Lets... Try to avoid answers that go along the lines of " Women love bad guys " or something like that.

2020.06.12 09:42 NozakiMufasa Fixing the DCEU Part 2: Wonder Woman, Aquaman, & The Flash

This is Part 2 of my "Fixing the DCEU" Series. Part 1 can be read here.
The biggest change done so far has been a proper reboot of Superman. The DCEU began with Man of Steel and it's biggest mistake was not making a sequel to Superman and making a crossover film way too soon, rebooting Batman way too soon, and then a Justice League movie with only three heroes actually established.
Right now I have rectified this giving Superman two films (the original Man of Steel and Superman: Man of Tomorrow) which firmly establishes his character and corner of the DC Universe. He's saved the world twice and is an icon. But now we must make films for superheroes who haven't had films yet and who aren't known in popular culture beyond things like Super Friends.
Wonder Woman (2016)
Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman is the best DCEU film because it is an actually well made film, from how it is shot, it's approach to characters (Wonder Woman is the idealistic and golden hero the DCEU needed when Snyder fucked it up with Batman and Superman) and world building. So no surprise here, not much changes to the actual movie. But there is some change to overall fit better.
Firstly, the first scene of the film omits the Wayne Enterprises van or any mention of Batman (To quote a really crappy TV show: "Fuck Batman"). It's not needed and it is better to solely focus on Wonder Woman. Our first scene thus plays out showing the Louvre in Paris and Diana Prince leaving her apartment on her way to the museum. She is an archaeologist / historian who fixes ancient artifacts like in the final film.
We see Diana enter her office and perform her work as the day goes on. She reflects on her past and as she walks through her back office we see MANY photos and momentos from over the years including framed Wonder Woman comics. Diana stops by a photo of herself with her friends from WWI and begins to reflect on the past.
The rest of the film is pretty much the same. Diana lives on Themyrscira, Diana grows up and initially trains in secret with Antiope then later officially with the Amazons, etc. But a big difference is that Diana growing up suspects something is different about her as she can do things other Amazons can't and even glows at times (a hint at her true nature). Hippolyta stresses that Diana is gifted but that she must be careful as early on she wants to unleash her power but puts other Amazons at risk. Also some of the other Amazons are wary of Diana for reasons she can't figure out (later learning it's because of her heritage as Zeus' daughter).
Aside from that, Diana has a pet giant lion. Why? It's cool. And as a reference to one Wonder Woman comic where Diana was friends with a black lion and a white lion. But also, this lion is kinda sort of Diana's sole friend as its a unique creature on the island. Also there's talk from the Amazons about how Diana can even befriend a "ferocious beast" as it won't let anyone else besides Hippolyta or Antiope near her.
There's a sort of minor change when Antiope and other Amazons die when Steve Trevor arrives in Themyscira. Isn't it weird that they're immortal, were created by the Olympian gods, yet bullets can kill them? Ordinary WWI Era bullets. It's always bugged me. So here is a big change: The German Unit has special bullets designed by Dr. Poison which are kind of powerful and cause people to be greatly affected (sort of like the gas but it's clearly a super powerful toxin). Steve has a line and later Dr. Poison says herself that these bullets aren't mass produced enough so this is why the German Army mainly focuses on Dr. Poison's ultra powerful toxic gas and the bullets were used up on the Themyscira attack.
These bullets are what were able to kill the Amazons on the beach plus Antiope. This greatly worries Hippolyta who has the Amazons do better to fortify Themyscira (explaining how past WWI they remained hidden for so long). Diana and Steve have their moments like the final film and Diana goes off with Steve to England. During Diana's parting with her mother, Diana says goodbye to her pet lion. It's like leaving behind your dog and she actually tears up and when on the water, her lion tries to follow her but then stays back ashore.
Rest of the film exactly the same. It is perfect, Gal Gadot rules as does her co-stars. There is zero to fix from Diana making it to England all the way to the climax. The climax is where major change happens however:
David Thewliss reveals himself as Ares after Diana kills Ludendorf. Only this time the actor changes into Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (The Mountain in Game of Thrones). This is his true form and shown clearly in flashbacks (so no David Thewliss in these flashbacks either). He reveals to Diana her true nature as his half sister, one of the last of the Olympian gods (emphasis on these gods specifically) and how she can join him or fight him.
Diana fights Ares like in the original film but this time rather than deus ex machina, Diana more so embraces and realizes the power she's been afraid of since training on Themyscira - what made her different from the Amazons - is to be embraced as she also realizes Steve's sacrifice and why he fought so hard for humanity even though they suck. Diana manages to defeat Ares and harnesses the power of (Zeus') lightning destroying him for good.
After the war is over, Diana and the rest of her unit go to the Victory Celebrations in London to pay respects to Steve. The other significant change afterwards is that Diana is shown to settle down in England with Etta Candy (reflecting how they've been roommates in the comics) and Etta mentions "They've been drawing you in the paper!" and we see the first Wonder Woman comics. Wonder Woman becomes known to history but the story about her is so fantastical that most write her off as urban legend or just widly exaggerated. In the present, Diana wakes up in her office and smiles remembering the lesson Steve taught her and how she strayed again in the time since.
The film ends with Diana leaving the Lourve headed home wearing a hooded raincoat (it's raining) when the museum is attacked by hostile terrorists. They hold up everyone and at first, Diana simply stands along with the hostages. But in a call back to when she charged into No Man's Land, Diana lowers her hood revealing her tiara sitting on her head and her hair styled like Wonder Woman again. Dramatically taking off her coat reveals she is wearing her original armor. Cuts to black as Wonder Woman's DCEU theme plays.
A post credits scene - which flashes back to shortly after the end of WWI - features Etta Candy and the members of Diana's unit (sans Diana) along with British Intelligence. Napi (The Blackfoot demigod played by Eugune Brave Rock) and MI6 reveal something they found in Ludendorf's base after it was destroyed. It's an ancient cubed artifact that they've dated to at least a few thousand years old but is also clearly advanced technology (A Motherbox). Etta asks why they've got it and Napi says they've been ordered to take it to America where it will be secured.
Aquaman (2016)
Aquaman is the second best DCEU film we've got right now. Pretty much like with Wonder Woman, not much changes since James Wan excellently directed the film. It's bright, its colorful, it's actioned packed in a unique way, sound design and filming is great. But there are still minor changes. No references to Justice League, it hasn't happened yet, and this is Aquaman's origin story.
The beginning of the film is much the same. Arthur reiterates his origin and parents meeting in flashback, we see Arthur briefly as a child communing with Aquatic life, and we get his intro where he battles Black Manta's pirates and leaves Manta's father to die. From this tone however we add narration from Arthur that he isn't a superhero who hides who he is. In his community people have nicknamed him "The Aquaman" as he helps save people at sea and kick ass. While returning home a Government agency tries to take / recruit Arthur only for Arthur to proceed to beat the shit out of these mooks.
Arthur meets his dad in the bar and we get a change of dialogue to reflect this continuity. Arthur's dad will mention that Arthur is like "that Superman guy!" and reference is made to Superman's "death" but Arthur declares he's nothing like him. We get the scene of Arthur taking photos with those bikers and see Arthur at work with his dad fishing. Arthur's dad argues as they're out on the water that he needs to take his life more seriously and not be "resigned to being just a fisherman". While Arthur does go out doing heroics, he hasn't really yet answered the call. On the sea we briefly see Mera - played by Christina Hendricks - observing Arthur who notices her but continues his work and ignores her.
From this point we get the hurricane that nearly kills Arthur's dad and their rescue by Mera. The rest of the film is pretty much the same but when Mera finds Arthur it's clear that they know each other a bit already. There's a flashback to Arthur's childhood and we learn Mera actually sought him out and they bonded - Arthur mostly just teaching Mera about the surface world and Arthur somewhat curious about the Atlanteans but stressing he had no interest in going there with her. Vulko also trained Arthur to fight during this time and would be joined by Mera despite him warning her not to. But they broke things off when Arthur learned that Mera hid that his mom was put into the Trench to die. Arthur joins Mera to go to Atlantis to confront Orm realizing he can't ignore his heritage anymore.
The whole movie plays out from these minor changes like the original film. Arthur and Mera go to Atlantis to stops Arthur's brother, they go on an adventure around the world to get Atlan's Trident, the battle in Italy where Arthur defeats Black Manta, Arthur and Mera go to the Trench, and they find Arthur's mother Atlanna. Arthur makes his peace when he faces the Kraken and gains the signature Aquaman armor like the original film before leading an army to battle Orm's army. Arthur defeats Orm and is declared King of Atlantis and successfully unites all the Kingdoms under his rule while Atlannta returns to the surface to be with Arthur's father.
However right before the credits end we get another scene: Arthur has returned to the surface. In full Aquaman attire orange he announces to the world that "Atlantis exists. So please: Stop polluting. K thanks". He's not quite a regal King yet, but it's a start. We also we see that Arthur has another reason for revealing himself and coming back: He's going to college like his dad said. He goes to a Marine Biology Institute and is there with a class that is all staring at him because "holy shit! the King of Atlantis is our classmate" and Arthur awkwardly smiles.
Black Manta's post credits scene happens after all of the credits. But this time he is rescued by the agents that Arthur beat the shit out of. They take Black Manta to a remote island base where he's kept as a prisoner. We then see someone emerge from the darkness: Amanda Waller. Waller offers Manta a place in her "elite task force" since now she has to worry about metahumans from under the sea, and Black Manta successfully fought their King twice. Movie ends.
The Flash (2017)
Like with Superman: Man of Tomorrow, this is a film that has yet to happen. But we can see how Flash could be portrayed from CW's excellent The Flash TV series. Forgive me if some elements are similar, it is just a fantastic show.
Stylistically, my ideal Flash film and how I write this would be a movie directed by Edgar Right (as revenge for Ant-Man) and be very weird, very unique, and comedic in places. It embraces the comic-book nature origins and approach.
Our film begins in Central City which for the most part is ordinary but also the base of STAR Labs. Rather than Barry Allen, our Flash is Wally West and played by Rupert Grint. You all know him as Ron Weasley. Wally is a bit of a slacker and works as an auto-mechanic but is still gifted with intelligence as shown with his unique approach to modding cars that looks more like science. Some of his friends including Ser'Darius Blain as Sam, Allegra Acosta as Miranda, and Jacob Batalon as Julio who are equally unique mechanics. He's also in a relationship with reporter Linda Park, played by Kelly Marie Tran.
Wally has sort of stalled in life as he can't afford college and is mostly on his own scrapping by. We briefly learn he's actually an orphan and left his aunt Iris to live on his own in Central City. Part of this makes him genuinely sad as he wants to do more than what his lot in life is and we see him argue with his land lord about not paying his rent for weeks. The land lord then tells Wally he's gonna be evicted, though admits that he's sorry and couldn't continue letting him live there. Wally packs his stuff and texts Linda that everything's fine but asks if he can move in with her.
But, things begin to look up as Wally checks his mail and its revealed he was accepted to work at STAR Labs as an assistant. He arrives and begins working for Dr. Valerie Perez (played by Lana Parrilla) and Dr. Silas Stone (who previously debuted in Superman: Man of Tomorrow) which is the break Wally needs in life. He goes to work and is fascinated by all the other scientists (made up of actual DC Comics characters in name) and by Perez's work with a particle Accelerator - with Perez joking "And I didn't even need Kryptonian technology!". Perez seems to like Wally enough who knows his way around the lab as much as he does cars.
His first day seems great and Wally will move in with Linda after the day is over. However a saboteur sneaks into the lab and steals data and begins tearing down the Accelerator just moments before it can become operational. Wally finds this man - having stayed back a bit to finish a report - and gets in a fist fight as the Accelerator soon goes off in an explosion which catches the two men and spreads to outside of STAR Labs.
The blast destroys part of STAR Labs but seemingly doesn't affect the city. Wally awakens in a hospital hours later to find Linda and his friends at his bedside. Dr. Perez also arrives moments later revealing she saw him fight the attacker on security footage and thanks him for what he did. Later after everyone's left Wally unknowingly taps into the Speed Force by rushing across his room to another floor of the hospital an then accidentally ending up outside in the streets.
Wally recovers and returns home with Linda and his friends who have a small party. But Wally is freaking out over what happened to him resulting in more accidental uses of his speed and is unable to hide this when he rushes through the room in a flash. Despite being just as weirded out Linda helps calm down Wally which gets him back to normal.
Concluding that the Accelerator changed him, Wally and Linda go to STAR Labs and inform Dr. Perez who at first is surprised but comes up with an explanation as to why Wally is now a "metahuman". However Wally isn't alone as the news reveals that across Central City people have developed unique abilities and become Metahumans. Perez gives Wally a series of tests and is helped by her assistants Sarah Charles (played by Laura Harrier) and Ray Palmer (played by Michael Cera).
On a break from the tests, Wally runs briefly runs to grab food because he has a faster metabolism requiring more food intake. While getting an absurd amount of Big Belly Burgers (carrying them in a cardboard tray) Wally finds that a metahuman with fire powers has gone on a rampage to rob a bank. Despite being warned to lay low and come back quickly, Wally decides to face this villain and uses his speed to quickly knock him out (super fast punch) and creates a vacuum to disperse the flames before rushing back to STAR Labs.
Wally isn't concretely spotted by civilians and the media and is dubbed "The Flash" due to appearing as a red and yellow streak of lightning. He returns to Dr. Perez who angrily berates Wally for ignoring her warning and is also chided by Linda who thinks its not safe for him. Wally says he'll keep low but a winks at Linda much to her chagrin. For the next several weeks Wally is subjected to more tests at STAR Labs and he continues to explore his powers while protecting Central City and fighting the many Metahuman villains that appear (who are all DC Comics characters).
Through these instances we see in a montage Wally's life improve through his work at STAR Labs, the tests, his bonding with his friends and with Linda as they live together and Linda falling for Wally even more. Sam, Julio, and Miranda also help Wally make his suits - first shown as his original yellow, then the classic red, and finally a suit modified with repurposed car parts as armor to protect his body from the speeds he runs. A scene shown in detail would have Wally racing against Sam driving a modified Mustang that is way faster than street legal and winning.
After settling on the Armored suit, Wally faces one of his most unique foes: Captain Boomerang. This scene is lengthier than the montage of villain fights and sees how Boomerang is kind of more challenging to face despite not having any superpowers. But Wally beats Boomerang by using his own boomerangs to knock him out. As Wally greets the media as The Flash (including Linda who speaks directly to him) we see off to the side Captain Boomerang being taken by ARGUS.
Dr. Perez continues to get frustrated at Wally ignoring her warnings about laying low but admits they've learned much with his "field work". Her assistants Sarah and Ray also have bonded a lot with Wally (starting out a bit awkward) and later join Wally's friends in testing his powers, even hanging out at their garage. Linda meanwhile continues to cover The Flash in the news and even at one point is called "Central City's Lois Lane" for her coverage. At this point Linda is realizing how much she wants Wally in her life.
But then trouble brews as Wally takes on a villain who is his match: Reverse Flash. Who is the Reverse Flash? The saboteur from the start of the film, Hunter Zolomon. The two fight each other when Wally detects his speed while stealing a key element from LexCorp's Central City branch. Reverse-Flash grabs Wally by the neck and knocks him into the ground before telling him to not pursue him. Wally defiantly chases Reverse-Flash in the speed force and tears off his mask revealing his face (that Wally remembers) before being punched across the city.
Wally tells Dr. Perez about the Reverse-Flash and Perez reveals she knows he is Hunter Zolomon. How? In the many weeks since the accident, Perez has managed to track down Zolomon by studying Wally's blood which has similar properties. Not only that, Zolomon was already a speedster before the accident that changed Wally which is how she knew how it'd affect the Metahumans.
Perez explains the origin of all this with Zolomon being her former protege and the original architect of the Particle Accelerator who built one a whole year prior to the events of the film. Initially intended as a power source, an accident occurred due to a design flaw and Zolomon was injured by the blast. He changed and became a speedster but was unstable and his body broke down. Becoming violent he threatened Perez into making a new one but Perez instead blasted him with an experimental gun (which looks a lot like Cyborg's arm canon) injuring him and causing Zolomon to flee.
As a whole year passed, Perez assumed he was dead since there was no word of him and she kept the initial experiments a secret. But she went with designing a true Accelerator for its original purpose. She realizes Zolomon wasn't trying to destroy it that fateful night of his return, but modifying it in a desperate attempt to replicate the original accident. Wally feeling betrayed by all of these secrets argues with Perez who argues back at him for ignoring her orders as she was trying to protect him all this time. This blow out of anger leads to a tearful Perez dropping to her knees admitting she was trying to atone for her mistakes with Zolomon, that she respects and likes Wally because he's - at the end of the day - a good man. The two embrace in a hug which is seen by Linda and Wally's friends who are warmed that they finally can get along.
Meanwhile, ARGUS agents converge on Zolomon's location in the underground where he has amassed technology and equipment. He is rebuilding the Accelerator a third time and the agents question why he hasn't come back to them. It is revealed that Zolomon was dying for a time when he was found by ARGUS. Working together the plan was for Zolomon to steal the data from STAR Labs and build an Accelerator for ARGUS so they could have an army of Metahumans. But Zolomon now has gone rogue and kills all the agents and - like a vampire - consumes their body energy to sustain himself. The second blast has transformed him and slowly he becomes a monster (looking a lot like Zoom from the tv show).
With the help of Perez and the rest of his friends, Wally tracks down Zolomon leading to another battle in which they race and fight each other across the city with their respective speeds. To the city it looks like unnatural weather phenomena. Zolomon outmatches Wally in speed as he has had more experience and outmatches him in combat and brutally beats him nearly to death. Zolomon leaves to gather one last crucial piece of technology and reveals he needs a new Accelerator to ensure he is all powerful.
An injured Wally is recovered by Linda while driving a news van and she tries to bring him back to the labs. Wally however steps out of the van and tries to go fight Zolomon again. When Linda argues against it, Wally says it'll be faster to face him now rather than go back to lick his wounds. A frustrated Linda allows him to go face Zolomon for Round 2. Zolomon steals the part he needs from a Wayne Enterprises laboratory and returns to his base of operations to be confronted by Wally.
Perez, her assistants, Wally's friends, and Linda group together in the middle of the city as Perez has managed to also track down Zolomon's Accelerator. It's giving off dangerous energy which actually could destroy the whole city. Wally and Zolomon battle it out in super speed and Wally at first is nearly beaten to death again. With blood dripping down his mouth, he screams as he pushes himself to run even faster than before - thinking of all the people who've helped him along the way to being a better person and superhero. Wally runs so fast that he actually outspeeds Zolomon and then delivers a punch so strong it seemingly destroys Zolomon's whole being and he explodes in a flash of lightning.
The team make it to the Accelerator but it is too late and will explode. Wally reunites with his friends and decides to give a last ditch effort in conaining the blast. He takes all of his friends and colleagues to another building with Superspeed before going back and running faster than before despite how injured he is. Parts of his being seemingly distinigrates as he runs creating a vortex that is able to contain the Accelerator Explosion. Wally's friends all watch as this happens and the vortex phases away. But no Wally West.
The next morning media teams arrive covering the incident as the city isn't sure what happened. Linda is there too and for a moment while speaking begins to break as she mourns for Wally. But before she can reveal this, a flash of lightning explodes in the crater of the vortex. It's a very beat up, tired, and battle damaged Flash / Wally West. Linda to her shock can't believe it and Wally smiles at her saying "Miss me?". In spite of herself, Linda rushes to Wally and kisses him and the media crews and civilians take photo and video of it. Later that day Wally and his allies celebrate at STAR Labs by grilling together. Their friends jokingly tease a very embarrassed Linda as Central City has dubbed her Flash's girlfriend.
The film ends with Wally racing through the city as The Flash while Wally via voice over declares that now he's more than just Wally West, he's The Fastest Man Alive.
A post credits scene shows Wally and all of his friends at the Big Belly Burger. No one saying a word as Wally gorges on dozens of burgers. Then as he wipes his mouth he turns to Dr. Perez: "I think I need a raise".
A second post-credits scene reveals that Hunter Zolomon is still alive. Only he is shown to be greatly injured and in an unknown wild area of desert. As he gets up he walks through the land only to come upon a statue in the sands: Wally West as The Flash. This confuses Zolomon but not as much as the sight of Central City in ruins. A futuristic looking ship then lands before him and out steps out... Gorilla Grodd. "Hunter Zolomon, we have been waiting for you."
Final Thoughts:
That a majority of the superheroes who appear in Justice League had barely any set up narratively aside from that real dumb email from Batman v. Superman will forever be one of the worst mistakes of cinema. That's why Part 2 focused on cementing these other heroes first which is why after properly establishing Superman, I have the successive films following up be Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and The Flash.
Also, in establishing Flash in particular was a challenge but really it's a no brainer that if there is a currently airing Flash TV series that a Flash movie should focus on another character. Also there is precedent for it with Wally West being Flash in the excellent DCAU shows Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. Thus why it's not Ezra Miller but Rupert Grint as the Flash.
Stay tuned for next time as I tackle a real beast: Suicide Squad.

2020.06.12 09:39 NozakiMufasa Fixing the DCEU Part 2: Wonder Woman, Aquaman, & The Flash

This is Part 2 of my "Fixing the DCEU" Series. Part 1 can be read here.
The biggest change done so far has been a proper reboot of Superman. The DCEU began with Man of Steel and it's biggest mistake was not making a sequel to Superman and making a crossover film way too soon, rebooting Batman way too soon, and then a Justice League movie with only three heroes actually established.
Right now I have rectified this giving Superman two films (the original Man of Steel and Superman: Man of Tomorrow) which firmly establishes his character and corner of the DC Universe. He's saved the world twice and is an icon. But now we must make films for superheroes who haven't had films yet and who aren't known in popular culture beyond things like Super Friends.
Wonder Woman (2016)
Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman is the best DCEU film because it is an actually well made film, from how it is shot, it's approach to characters (Wonder Woman is the idealistic and golden hero the DCEU needed when Snyder fucked it up with Batman and Superman) and world building. So no surprise here, not much changes to the actual movie. But there is some change to overall fit better.
Firstly, the first scene of the film omits the Wayne Enterprises van or any mention of Batman (To quote a really crappy TV show: "Fuck Batman"). It's not needed and it is better to solely focus on Wonder Woman. Our first scene thus plays out showing the Louvre in Paris and Diana Prince leaving her apartment on her way to the museum. She is an archaeologist / historian who fixes ancient artifacts like in the final film.
We see Diana enter her office and perform her work as the day goes on. She reflects on her past and as she walks through her back office we see MANY photos and momentos from over the years including framed Wonder Woman comics. Diana stops by a photo of herself with her friends from WWI and begins to reflect on the past.
The rest of the film is pretty much the same. Diana lives on Themyrscira, Diana grows up and initially trains in secret with Antiope then later officially with the Amazons, etc. But a big difference is that Diana growing up suspects something is different about her as she can do things other Amazons can't and even glows at times (a hint at her true nature). Hippolyta stresses that Diana is gifted but that she must be careful as early on she wants to unleash her power but puts other Amazons at risk. Also some of the other Amazons are wary of Diana for reasons she can't figure out (later learning it's because of her heritage as Zeus' daughter).
Aside from that, Diana has a pet giant lion. Why? It's cool. And as a reference to one Wonder Woman comic where Diana was friends with a black lion and a white lion. But also, this lion is kinda sort of Diana's sole friend as its a unique creature on the island. Also there's talk from the Amazons about how Diana can even befriend a "ferocious beast" as it won't let anyone else besides Hippolyta or Antiope near her.
There's a sort of minor change when Antiope and other Amazons die when Steve Trevor arrives in Themyscira. Isn't it weird that they're immortal, were created by the Olympian gods, yet bullets can kill them? Ordinary WWI Era bullets. It's always bugged me. So here is a big change: The German Unit has special bullets designed by Dr. Poison which are kind of powerful and cause people to be greatly affected (sort of like the gas but it's clearly a super powerful toxin). Steve has a line and later Dr. Poison says herself that these bullets aren't mass produced enough so this is why the German Army mainly focuses on Dr. Poison's ultra powerful toxic gas and the bullets were used up on the Themyscira attack.
These bullets are what were able to kill the Amazons on the beach plus Antiope. This greatly worries Hippolyta who has the Amazons do better to fortify Themyscira (explaining how past WWI they remained hidden for so long). Diana and Steve have their moments like the final film and Diana goes off with Steve to England. During Diana's parting with her mother, Diana says goodbye to her pet lion. It's like leaving behind your dog and she actually tears up and when on the water, her lion tries to follow her but then stays back ashore.
Rest of the film exactly the same. It is perfect, Gal Gadot rules as does her co-stars. There is zero to fix from Diana making it to England all the way to the climax. The climax is where major change happens however:
David Thewliss reveals himself as Ares after Diana kills Ludendorf. Only this time the actor changes into Hafþór Júlíus Björnsson (The Mountain in Game of Thrones). This is his true form and shown clearly in flashbacks (so no David Thewliss in these flashbacks either). He reveals to Diana her true nature as his half sister, one of the last of the Olympian gods (emphasis on these gods specifically) and how she can join him or fight him.
Diana fights Ares like in the original film but this time rather than deus ex machina, Diana more so embraces and realizes the power she's been afraid of since training on Themyscira - what made her different from the Amazons - is to be embraced as she also realizes Steve's sacrifice and why he fought so hard for humanity even though they suck. Diana manages to defeat Ares and harnesses the power of (Zeus') lightning destroying him for good.
After the war is over, Diana and the rest of her unit go to the Victory Celebrations in London to pay respects to Steve. The other significant change afterwards is that Diana is shown to settle down in England with Etta Candy (reflecting how they've been roommates in the comics) and Etta mentions "They've been drawing you in the paper!" and we see the first Wonder Woman comics. Wonder Woman becomes known to history but the story about her is so fantastical that most write her off as urban legend or just widly exaggerated. In the present, Diana wakes up in her office and smiles remembering the lesson Steve taught her and how she strayed again in the time since.
The film ends with Diana leaving the Lourve headed home wearing a hooded raincoat (it's raining) when the museum is attacked by hostile terrorists. They hold up everyone and at first, Diana simply stands along with the hostages. But in a call back to when she charged into No Man's Land, Diana lowers her hood revealing her tiara sitting on her head and her hair styled like Wonder Woman again. Dramatically taking off her coat reveals she is wearing her original armor. Cuts to black as Wonder Woman's DCEU theme plays.
A post credits scene - which flashes back to shortly after the end of WWI - features Etta Candy and the members of Diana's unit (sans Diana) along with British Intelligence. Napi (The Blackfoot demigod played by Eugune Brave Rock) and MI6 reveal something they found in Ludendorf's base after it was destroyed. It's an ancient cubed artifact that they've dated to at least a few thousand years old but is also clearly advanced technology (A Motherbox). Etta asks why they've got it and Napi says they've been ordered to take it to America where it will be secured.
Aquaman (2016)
Aquaman is the second best DCEU film we've got right now. Pretty much like with Wonder Woman, not much changes since James Wan excellently directed the film. It's bright, its colorful, it's actioned packed in a unique way, sound design and filming is great. But there are still minor changes. No references to Justice League, it hasn't happened yet, and this is Aquaman's origin story.
The beginning of the film is much the same. Arthur reiterates his origin and parents meeting in flashback, we see Arthur briefly as a child communing with Aquatic life, and we get his intro where he battles Black Manta's pirates and leaves Manta's father to die. From this tone however we add narration from Arthur that he isn't a superhero who hides who he is. In his community people have nicknamed him "The Aquaman" as he helps save people at sea and kick ass. While returning home a Government agency tries to take / recruit Arthur only for Arthur to proceed to beat the shit out of these mooks.
Arthur meets his dad in the bar and we get a change of dialogue to reflect this continuity. Arthur's dad will mention that Arthur is like "that Superman guy!" and reference is made to Superman's "death" but Arthur declares he's nothing like him. We get the scene of Arthur taking photos with those bikers and see Arthur at work with his dad fishing. Arthur's dad argues as they're out on the water that he needs to take his life more seriously and not be "resigned to being just a fisherman". While Arthur does go out doing heroics, he hasn't really yet answered the call. On the sea we briefly see Mera - played by Christina Hendricks - observing Arthur who notices her but continues his work and ignores her.
From this point we get the hurricane that nearly kills Arthur's dad and their rescue by Mera. The rest of the film is pretty much the same but when Mera finds Arthur it's clear that they know each other a bit already. There's a flashback to Arthur's childhood and we learn Mera actually sought him out and they bonded - Arthur mostly just teaching Mera about the surface world and Arthur somewhat curious about the Atlanteans but stressing he had no interest in going there with her. Vulko also trained Arthur to fight during this time and would be joined by Mera despite him warning her not to. But they broke things off when Arthur learned that Mera hid that his mom was put into the Trench to die. Arthur joins Mera to go to Atlantis to confront Orm realizing he can't ignore his heritage anymore.
The whole movie plays out from these minor changes like the original film. Arthur and Mera go to Atlantis to stops Arthur's brother, they go on an adventure around the world to get Atlan's Trident, the battle in Italy where Arthur defeats Black Manta, Arthur and Mera go to the Trench, and they find Arthur's mother Atlanna. Arthur makes his peace when he faces the Kraken and gains the signature Aquaman armor like the original film before leading an army to battle Orm's army. Arthur defeats Orm and is declared King of Atlantis and successfully unites all the Kingdoms under his rule while Atlannta returns to the surface to be with Arthur's father.
However right before the credits end we get another scene: Arthur has returned to the surface. In full Aquaman attire orange he announces to the world that "Atlantis exists. So please: Stop polluting. K thanks". He's not quite a regal King yet, but it's a start. We also we see that Arthur has another reason for revealing himself and coming back: He's going to college like his dad said. He goes to a Marine Biology Institute and is there with a class that is all staring at him because "holy shit! the King of Atlantis is our classmate" and Arthur awkwardly smiles.
Black Manta's post credits scene happens after all of the credits. But this time he is rescued by the agents that Arthur beat the shit out of. They take Black Manta to a remote island base where he's kept as a prisoner. We then see someone emerge from the darkness: Amanda Waller. Waller offers Manta a place in her "elite task force" since now she has to worry about metahumans from under the sea, and Black Manta successfully fought their King twice. Movie ends.
The Flash (2017)
Like with Superman: Man of Tomorrow, this is a film that has yet to happen. But we can see how Flash could be portrayed from CW's excellent The Flash TV series. Forgive me if some elements are similar, it is just a fantastic show.
Stylistically, my ideal Flash film and how I write this would be a movie directed by Edgar Right (as revenge for Ant-Man) and be very weird, very unique, and comedic in places. It embraces the comic-book nature origins and approach.
Our film begins in Central City which for the most part is ordinary but also the base of STAR Labs. Rather than Barry Allen, our Flash is Wally West and played by Rupert Grint. You all know him as Ron Weasley. Wally is a bit of a slacker and works as an auto-mechanic but is still gifted with intelligence as shown with his unique approach to modding cars that looks more like science. Some of his friends including Ser'Darius Blain as Sam, Allegra Acosta as Miranda, and Jacob Batalon as Julio who are equally unique mechanics. He's also in a relationship with reporter Linda Park, played by Kelly Marie Tran.
Wally has sort of stalled in life as he can't afford college and is mostly on his own scrapping by. We briefly learn he's actually an orphan and left his aunt Iris to live on his own in Central City. Part of this makes him genuinely sad as he wants to do more than what his lot in life is and we see him argue with his land lord about not paying his rent for weeks. The land lord then tells Wally he's gonna be evicted, though admits that he's sorry and couldn't continue letting him live there. Wally packs his stuff and texts Linda that everything's fine but asks if he can move in with her.
But, things begin to look up as Wally checks his mail and its revealed he was accepted to work at STAR Labs as an assistant. He arrives and begins working for Dr. Valerie Perez (played by Lana Parrilla) and Dr. Silas Stone (who previously debuted in Superman: Man of Tomorrow) which is the break Wally needs in life. He goes to work and is fascinated by all the other scientists (made up of actual DC Comics characters in name) and by Perez's work with a particle Accelerator - with Perez joking "And I didn't even need Kryptonian technology!". Perez seems to like Wally enough who knows his way around the lab as much as he does cars.
His first day seems great and Wally will move in with Linda after the day is over. However a saboteur sneaks into the lab and steals data and begins tearing down the Accelerator just moments before it can become operational. Wally finds this man - having stayed back a bit to finish a report - and gets in a fist fight as the Accelerator soon goes off in an explosion which catches the two men and spreads to outside of STAR Labs.
The blast destroys part of STAR Labs but seemingly doesn't affect the city. Wally awakens in a hospital hours later to find Linda and his friends at his bedside. Dr. Perez also arrives moments later revealing she saw him fight the attacker on security footage and thanks him for what he did. Later after everyone's left Wally unknowingly taps into the Speed Force by rushing across his room to another floor of the hospital an then accidentally ending up outside in the streets.
Wally recovers and returns home with Linda and his friends who have a small party. But Wally is freaking out over what happened to him resulting in more accidental uses of his speed and is unable to hide this when he rushes through the room in a flash. Despite being just as weirded out Linda helps calm down Wally which gets him back to normal.
Concluding that the Accelerator changed him, Wally and Linda go to STAR Labs and inform Dr. Perez who at first is surprised but comes up with an explanation as to why Wally is now a "metahuman". However Wally isn't alone as the news reveals that across Central City people have developed unique abilities and become Metahumans. Perez gives Wally a series of tests and is helped by her assistants Sarah Charles (played by Laura Harrier) and Ray Palmer (played by Michael Cera).
On a break from the tests, Wally runs briefly runs to grab food because he has a faster metabolism requiring more food intake. While getting an absurd amount of Big Belly Burgers (carrying them in a cardboard tray) Wally finds that a metahuman with fire powers has gone on a rampage to rob a bank. Despite being warned to lay low and come back quickly, Wally decides to face this villain and uses his speed to quickly knock him out (super fast punch) and creates a vacuum to disperse the flames before rushing back to STAR Labs.
Wally isn't concretely spotted by civilians and the media and is dubbed "The Flash" due to appearing as a red and yellow streak of lightning. He returns to Dr. Perez who angrily berates Wally for ignoring her warning and is also chided by Linda who thinks its not safe for him. Wally says he'll keep low but a winks at Linda much to her chagrin. For the next several weeks Wally is subjected to more tests at STAR Labs and he continues to explore his powers while protecting Central City and fighting the many Metahuman villains that appear (who are all DC Comics characters).
Through these instances we see in a montage Wally's life improve through his work at STAR Labs, the tests, his bonding with his friends and with Linda as they live together and Linda falling for Wally even more. Sam, Julio, and Miranda also help Wally make his suits - first shown as his original yellow, then the classic red, and finally a suit modified with repurposed car parts as armor to protect his body from the speeds he runs. A scene shown in detail would have Wally racing against Sam driving a modified Mustang that is way faster than street legal and winning.
After settling on the Armored suit, Wally faces one of his most unique foes: Captain Boomerang. This scene is lengthier than the montage of villain fights and sees how Boomerang is kind of more challenging to face despite not having any superpowers. But Wally beats Boomerang by using his own boomerangs to knock him out. As Wally greets the media as The Flash (including Linda who speaks directly to him) we see off to the side Captain Boomerang being taken by ARGUS.
Dr. Perez continues to get frustrated at Wally ignoring her warnings about laying low but admits they've learned much with his "field work". Her assistants Sarah and Ray also have bonded a lot with Wally (starting out a bit awkward) and later join Wally's friends in testing his powers, even hanging out at their garage. Linda meanwhile continues to cover The Flash in the news and even at one point is called "Central City's Lois Lane" for her coverage. At this point Linda is realizing how much she wants Wally in her life.
But then trouble brews as Wally takes on a villain who is his match: Reverse Flash. Who is the Reverse Flash? The saboteur from the start of the film, Hunter Zolomon. The two fight each other when Wally detects his speed while stealing a key element from LexCorp's Central City branch. Reverse-Flash grabs Wally by the neck and knocks him into the ground before telling him to not pursue him. Wally defiantly chases Reverse-Flash in the speed force and tears off his mask revealing his face (that Wally remembers) before being punched across the city.
Wally tells Dr. Perez about the Reverse-Flash and Perez reveals she knows he is Hunter Zolomon. How? In the many weeks since the accident, Perez has managed to track down Zolomon by studying Wally's blood which has similar properties. Not only that, Zolomon was already a speedster before the accident that changed Wally which is how she knew how it'd affect the Metahumans.
Perez explains the origin of all this with Zolomon being her former protege and the original architect of the Particle Accelerator who built one a whole year prior to the events of the film. Initially intended as a power source, an accident occurred due to a design flaw and Zolomon was injured by the blast. He changed and became a speedster but was unstable and his body broke down. Becoming violent he threatened Perez into making a new one but Perez instead blasted him with an experimental gun (which looks a lot like Cyborg's arm canon) injuring him and causing Zolomon to flee.
As a whole year passed, Perez assumed he was dead since there was no word of him and she kept the initial experiments a secret. But she went with designing a true Accelerator for its original purpose. She realizes Zolomon wasn't trying to destroy it that fateful night of his return, but modifying it in a desperate attempt to replicate the original accident. Wally feeling betrayed by all of these secrets argues with Perez who argues back at him for ignoring her orders as she was trying to protect him all this time. This blow out of anger leads to a tearful Perez dropping to her knees admitting she was trying to atone for her mistakes with Zolomon, that she respects and likes Wally because he's - at the end of the day - a good man. The two embrace in a hug which is seen by Linda and Wally's friends who are warmed that they finally can get along.
Meanwhile, ARGUS agents converge on Zolomon's location in the underground where he has amassed technology and equipment. He is rebuilding the Accelerator a third time and the agents question why he hasn't come back to them. It is revealed that Zolomon was dying for a time when he was found by ARGUS. Working together the plan was for Zolomon to steal the data from STAR Labs and build an Accelerator for ARGUS so they could have an army of Metahumans. But Zolomon now has gone rogue and kills all the agents and - like a vampire - consumes their body energy to sustain himself. The second blast has transformed him and slowly he becomes a monster (looking a lot like Zoom from the tv show).

2020.05.16 20:55 xoxoxoeleanor [Discussion] Scott Pilgrim vs the World film - the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope

This film has to be one of my favourites I've watched recently on Netflix, and it opens up an interesting discussion about the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope.
An absurd but intelligent satirical comedy, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ has rightly become something of a cult classic. Chronicling nerdy gamer Scott’s pursuit of gorgeous delivery girl Ramona Flowers, the amateur musician must defeat Ramona’s 7 evil exes before he can date her. Based on the graphic novel series by Bryan Lee O'Malley, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ is over the top and outstandingly ridiculous, with heavily stylised fight scenes and hyperbolised characters. It deals with a myriad of tropes, from the idea of a ‘Manic Pixie Dream Girl’ to the ‘evil ex’ that everyone seems to have. However, it does so with enough irony that it appears to acknowledge the obvious flaws and stereotypes that exist within its characters.
Directed by Edgar Wright, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ utilises aspects of video game and comic book design as a way of portraying the film’s outlandish plot, whilst also acting as a tribute to the story’s two-dimensional origins. Though it criminally underperformed when initially released, this was perhaps because it was somewhat ahead of its time. Veganism, bisexuality, dyed hair, so-terrible-it's-good indie music... watching it a decade later, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ is an oddly accurate, if bizarre, social commentary. Its characters are shallow stereotypes, its plot is predictably simple, and Ramona Flowers, played by Elizabeth Kate Winstead, seems to exist purely to provide Scott with the emotional growing-up he needs. However, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ is also endearing and hilarious as it navigates relationships in the wider context of societal expectations.
Living in Toronto, Scott Pilgrim is a jobless bassist in grungy garage band ‘Sex Bob-Omb,’ sleeps in the same bed as his gay roommate Wallace and is dating a 17-year-old high school girl called Knives Chau. Played by Michael Cera, Scott has all the characteristics of a creepy freeloader. However, he is also hugely naïve and immature, personality traits that somehow absolve him of his shortcomings. Michael Cera does an excellent job of portraying Scott in a sympathetic, lighthearted manner, but regardless of this, he still fails to fit the hero archetype of your traditional action films. 'Scott Pilgrim vs the World’ forces its characters to fulfil such archetypes to comedic effect and it does so successfully. Agonisingly awkward at times, this is a film that knows it’s ridiculous, and revels in it.
Read my full review and analysis of the Manic Pixie Dream Girl trope in 'Scott Pilgrim vs the World' here. I also talk about the film's darker alternate ending.

2020.04.15 05:00 WillemDafoo Is it bad for guys to look young?

I’m 24M but I look like I could be a freshman in college. I’ve basically got a Michael Cera thing going - baby face, very skinny (running >> weights), and I don’t like to grow out my facial hair. I’m comfortable with the way I look except when it comes to dating. Is looking really young likely to hamper my chances down the road with women in their mid-to-late-20s?

2020.04.03 20:12 Ex__ Quarantainment Suggestion: Movies that take place in Los Angeles

EDIT: If something is missing, check the edits first.
Hello all! I don't know about the rest of this town, but I sure do enjoy movies. In this post I'm going to share a list of movies that:
A.) Are watchable, possibly even entertaining.
B.) Take place in Los Angeles. Some may simply have just a scene or two in Los Angeles whereas others are fully written for a Los Angeles setting. Some may even be fictional locations that were neverless filmed in and highly resemble the Los Angeles area.
Most of these are mainstream movies so no real gems in this list, but I encourage others to contribute in the comments. I realize that not everyone has watched everything, so I'll provide insight that assumes you haven't seen the film yet.

Movies that take place in a non-fictional Los Angeles setting

Movies that partially take place in Los Angeles

Movies that take place in a fictionalized Los Angeles

Thats it for my list. Don't feel like proofreading it, so I apologize for any grammatical errors. Be aware that I can't think of or remember EVERYTHING. Also this isn't meant to be an encyclopedic list, so there are some films I left off intentionalyl ebcause I didn't feel they were what I considered watchable. That being said, I'll edit in any film that's commented below, but don't blame me if you watch it and it sucks ass.
EDIT:
Swimming With Sharks (1994) - Another one I forgot. Stars 90s Kevin Spacey and Brett from Pulp Fiction. Decent watch, if not a bit over the top with the ending.
Up in Smoke (1978) - The original stoner comedy. Stars the comedy duo Cheech and Chong. Excellent watch and they do a good performance of Earache My Eye. In fact, the entire soundtrack is dope. Definitely worth a watch.
Car Wash (1976) - Solid comedy, stars Richard Pryor, and spawned the song of the same titled that charted heavily in the 70s. Had a really stupid remake that I think Aftermath records produced named The Wash that is not at all worth mentioning further.
Set It Off (1996) - A bank heist film on the surface, but really the black woman's answer to Thelma and Louise. Stars Jada Pinkett-Smith, Vivica A. Fox, and Queen Latifah as a lesbian waaaaaaay before she officially came out.
u/Cribbit has further decreed that Bosch (Amazon Prime) and Barry (HBO) are further required watching for continued Los Angeles residency.

2020.01.07 00:57 kaleviko [All] He gave good policemen a bad name

In P14, Andy and Lucy had put Naido in her cell in the Twin Peaks sheriff's station basement and got her dressed up. Just as they were leaving and locking the cell door, we heard Chad's scruffy voice in the background.
Chad: "Idiots."
That was seemingly meant for Andy and Lucy, but based on how it was timed exactly to the moment when Lucy grabbed the cell bar with her left hand, it probably also was Lynch calling for -ahem- our attention. Make sense of this if you can.
Now, let's watch carefully. Lucy's grip kept flipping between four different positions. First, she grabbed the third bar from the cell door. Next, she was seen holding on to the door frame. Then she was holding to a bar next to the door, and then to the second bar from the door.
As this was what we got, then let's sort out the scene accordingly and assign a storyline one through three to each different bar she held and then the fourth when she held on to the door frame.
When Lucy was on screen, Chad was heard only during storyline 3. For now at least, let's have Chad and the Drunk mimicking him only appear in storyline 3.
Based on this, the four storylines would look as follows:
In the first storyline, Andy was standing in front of the cell number 10.
Andy: "You're a very bad --" (Missing.) "--good policemen a bad name."
Having said that, Andy was walking back to Lucy, looking angry and stern. We didn't see Naido. Lucy had been watching the confrontation, but we didn't see her face. There was no sound from any cell.
In the second storyline, Lucy was standing in front of Naido's cell. Lucy was beaming. Andy came to her, got her arm, and they both left looking very happy and loving. They looked careful to leave very quietly so as not to disturb Naido. We didn't hear anyone talking.
Most of the scene belonged to the third storyline. Lucy and Andy had just dressed up Naido.
Lucy: "I hope these pajamas are okay. They've been in my locker since the time that dog got lost in here."
Andy: "They're beautiful, Lucy."
Lucy: "Do you remember that night, Andy?"
Andy: "Yes, I do."
Chad: "Idiots. You're a joke, Andy! You're no kind of cop! You're no kind of cop at all!"
Drunk: "You're no kind of cop at all."
(Missing.)
Andy (to Chad in front of the cell 10): "-- person, Chad. Give --"
(Missing.)
Andy turned to walk back to Lucy.
Drunk: "Good policemen a bad name."
(Missing.)
The fourth storyline had only a short glimpse. Lucy and Andy were standing in front of Naido's cell. Looking worried, Lucy was staring at something at the back of the cell section. Andy finished locking the door and started walking there. Nobody was heard saying anything.
Usually, different storylines in season 3 seem to be mutually exclusive. They happened in a way or another in different realities where the events repeated in similar but not the same manner for a reason or another. Here we seemed to get four variations of Andy and Lucy being in the cell section. They may all have been variations of the same event but it looks like one was not.
Naido was present in three of the storylines, but in the first one she wasn't necessarily there, at least not yet. We didn't see or hear her. Maybe she wasn't the reason why Andy and Lucy were there either. But what else could have brought the two down there together?
Let's concentrate on that storyline and make some sense of.
Earlier in the same episode, Chad had been arrested. Curiously, that scene seemed to imply there was another storyline in which someone else was arrested instead of Chad. If so, we were carefully.hidden who that person was.
Now, Andy was angrily chastising someone who was in the cell 10, but we didn't get to see or hear who there was. A hidden person was arrested, and then another hidden person was in a cell. Were they the same person?
Walking back, Andy looked furious and stern. Lucy was there too, her face hidden.
Let's have a look at Wally Brando. Andy and Lucy had given their son the name Wally Brando because he was born April 3, the birthday of Marlon Brando.
Like discussed earlier, Wally Brando couldn't possibly be on the timeline of the Twin Peaks' original run. At 24 years old, Wally was too young and born on an impossible date. Announcing her pregnancy in March 1989, Lucy's son should have been born late in summer 1989 whereas Wally was apparently born April 3, 1992.
With this very openly expressed problem, Lynch made it clear the story was not linear. But he also left it hanging there without much guidance what to do with that information.
In P4, Wally came to see her parents. Dressed as Marlon Brando's character in the movie The Wild One (1953) and imitating his lisp, it seemed evident that Michael Cera played Wally Brando throughout the scene. There was no flipping to another son from another timeline during his one and only scene as the son from the original timeline would not have had anything to do with Marlon Brando.
What happened to the baby from the original timeline? Why didn't we get to see him but instead got a pronouncedly different son? What possible purpose did this serve?
In the finale, Cooper warned Diane, right before they jumped, "It could all be different." Earlier, I had a look what seemed to happen to Miriam and Little Denny Craig when action flipped from one storyline to another and how they became completely different individuals in each of their three storylines, respectively.
In P4, as deputy Jesse Holcomb came to the meeting room and announced that Wally Brando had arrived, Andy and Lucy rushed out to see him. Once they were gone, there was a cut to the Sheriff, who waved a folder towards Jesse.
Sheriff Truman: "Their son."
And camera got closer to Jesse.
Next in the same scene, as the Sheriff left the meeting room and Jesse closed the door behind him, there was a cut to Hawk who lifted his gaze from the papers and stared firmly at the door after him.
In P11, Jesse knocked on the meeting room door and tried to make some personal contact with the Sheriff, asking if he wanted to see his new car. The Sheriff rebuffed him. As Jesse left, both the Sheriff and Hawk behaved like something unsaid was afoot.
That was the the last time we saw Jesse. It looked like there was a suspicion he was up to no good. Maybe it was hinted he was the missing son that belonged to the original timeline. His role in the season feels like a half-forgotten dream, or something you pushed out of your mind but flashes of it come back to haunt you. Difficult to imagine anyone but Lynch trying to pull it off like this.
Let's play with the idea then that there was Wally Brando in one storyline that also had some Jesse Holcomb, a deputy at Twin Peaks Sheriff's station, no relation. But in another storyline there was no Wally Brando at all. Instead, Jesse was not only a deputy at Twin Peaks Sheriff's station but also Andy and Lucy's son from the original timeline, born in 1989, now working as an officer like his father.
Something had gone all wrong with him. Maybe it can be sorted out, maybe not. It might not be relevant.
In the storyline that Jesse was Andy and Lucy s son, he got arrested - not Chad. Andy and Lucy were down in the basement checking on their locked up son. Andy was furious about what he had done. Lucy watched quietly from afar. We didn't see her face.
Another moment between a disappointed father and a failed son, like what seemed to take place between Mike Nelson and Steven, also quickly passing in one of the scrambled storylines. Arrest of Andy's son turned into an arrest of an annoying co-worker. Mike's loser of a kid became just a bad job applicant.
Hidden in the cracks of the larger story and crafted into quickly passing moments, there seemed to be a melancholy drama how Andy and Lucy's son was about to throw his life away. In light of this, the frequently highlighted Christmas family photo on Lucy's shelf in which Andy, Lucy and Wally Brando's happy faces were taped over some other people starts to have some meaning.

2019.12.31 18:16 Number333 I watched 108 movies in 2019 and decided to rank them - here they are

DISCLAIMER: Since I imagine a few of these opinions are out there - the best way I can describe my taste is I like/don't dislike the majority of things but rarely love/hate something. Hence why most stuff falls between a 6 and 7. Anything 8.00 or above here I would recommend to everybody. Oh and it should be obvious by the list but the MAJORITY of these movies weren't released in 2019. I wanted to do some catching up on a lot of films I had never watched. Without further ado, the list.

2019.10.04 10:39 Nozpot homestuck

A young man stands in his bedroom. It just so happens that today, the 13th of April, 2009, is this young man's birthday. Though it was thirteen years ago he was given life, it is only today he will be given a name!
What will the name of this young man be?
Your name is JOHN. As was previously mentioned it is your BIRTHDAY. A number of CAKES are scattered about your room. You have a variety of INTERESTS. You have a passion for REALLY TERRIBLE MOVIES. You like to program computers but you are NOT VERY GOOD AT IT. You have a fondness for PARANORMAL LORE, and are an aspiring AMATEUR MAGICIAN. You also like to play GAMES sometimes.
What will you do?
Your ARMS are in your MAGIC CHEST, pooplord!
Out of sympathy for John's perceived lack of arms, you pick up the CAKE for him and put it on his BED.
You retrieve your FAKE ARMS from the chest. You use these for HILARIOUS ANTICS.
You CAPTCHALOGUE them in your SYLLADEX. You have no idea what that actually means though.
There are other items in the chest.
In here you keep an array of humorous and mystical ARTIFACTS, each one a devastating weapon in the hands of a SKILLED MAGICIAN or a CUNNING PRANKSTER.
You are neither of these things.
Among the ARTIFACTS are: TWO (2) FAKE ARMS [CURRENTLY CAPTCHALOGUED IN YOUR SYLLADEX], ONE (1) PAIR OF TRICK HANDCUFFS, ONE (1) STUNT SWORD, ONE (1) MAGICIAN'S HAT, ONE (1) PAIR OF BEAGLE PUSS GLASSES, SEVERAL (~) SMOKE PELLETS, SEVERAL (~) BLOOD CAPSULES, and ONE (1) COPY OF COLONEL SASSACRE'S DAUNTING TEXT OF MAGICAL FRIVOLITY AND PRACTICAL JAPERY, and ONE (1) COPY OF HARRY ANDERSON'S "WISE GUY", BY MIKE CAVENEY.
Some of this stuff may come in handy at some point. For now, you decide to just take the SMOKE PELLETS.
You stow the SMOKE PELLETS on one of your CAPTCHALOGUE CARDS in your SYLLADEX.
You still aren't totally sure what that means, but you are starting to get the hang of the vernacular at least.
You have two empty CAPTCHALOGUE CARDS remaining.
You aren't totally sure if "EQUIP" is a verb copasetic with the abstract behavioral medium in which you dwell, but you give it a try anyway.
Unfortunately, you cannot access the FAKE ARMS! Their card is underneath the one you just used to captchalogue the SMOKE PELLETS. You will have to use the pellets first in order to access the arms. But this is probably unadvisable, since you'd just make your room lousy with smoke!
Your SYLLADEX'S FETCH MODUS is currently dictated by the logic of a STACK DATA STRUCTURE. You were never all that great with data structures and you find the concept puzzling and mildly irritating.
But with any hope, perhaps you will advance new, more practical FETCH MODI for your SYLLADEX with a little more experience.
Is it even possible to get any more hard boiled than that? You really doubt it. This poster was one of your wisest purchases.
There is a nice spot on the wall next to it. You've been meaning to hang another poster there soon.
This note is rich with the aromas of FATHERLY AFTERSHAVES AND COLOGNES.
Beside the note is a ROLLED UP POSTER.
Another BIRTHDAY ARTIFACT. You wonder what is printed on the poster.
You'll need some way to hang it on your wall.
You first place the HAMMER into your SYLLADEX.
But now all of your CAPTCHALOGUE CARDS are full. You wonder what will happen if you try to take the NAILS?
You guess it doesn't hurt to try.
You captchalogue FOUR (4) NAILS into the top card, and push all the ARTIFACTS down a card.
The FAKE ARMS are pushed entirely out of the deck!!!
Oh well. They're probably completely useless anyway. But you probably don't want to do that again, unless you want to drop the SMOKE PELLETS and suffer the consequences.
In any case, you now feel like you have gathered enough things to get down to business and do some really important stuff. The next thing you do will probably be exceptionally meaningful.
This is the dumbest idea you've had in weeks!!!
STUPID STUPID STUPID.
And yet the polished surface of your desk...
It beckons.
You MERGE the top two cards.
The HAMMER and NAILS are now captchalogued on the same card and can be used together.
You use the HAMMER and NAILS card IN CONJUNCTION with the card beneath it.
You use the HAMMER, NAILS, and POSTER on the blank space on the wall.
It's glorious. Exactly what you wanted. The old man really came through this time.
PUT THE BUNNY BACK IN THE BOX.
I SAID, PUT THE BUNNY BACK IN THE BOX.
WHY COULDN'T YOU PUT THE BUNNY BACK IN THE BOX?
Morgan Freeman's genteel, homespun mannerisms were perfect qualities for a president residing over a crisis.
OCEANS RISE. CITIES FALL. HOPE SURVIVES.
WOW.
Films about impending apocalypse fascinate you. Plus, a black president??? Now you've seen everything!
You've marked your birthday, the 13th of April. Another day you marked was supposed to be the arrival date for the highly touted SBURB BETA LAUNCH.
It's been three days already. It's starting to become a sore subject with you.
You are sick to death of cake!!! You've been eating it all day. And you have no intention of clogging your SYLLADEX with it either. The CAKE stays put for now.
You hear a notice from your COMPUTER. Someone is messaging you.
You pull up to your COMPUTER. This is where you spend most of your time. You decorated your desktop with some rather handsome WALLPAPER which you made yourself. You are really proud of it.
Your desktop is also littered with various PROGRAMMING PROJECT FILES. You are so bad at programming sometimes you wonder why you even bother with it.
Your PESTERCHUM application is flashing. Someone is trying to get in touch with you.
Only one of your CHUMS is logged in. He's sent you a message.
-- turntechGodhead [TG] began pestering ectoBiologist [EB] at 16:13 --
TG: hey so what sort of insane loot did you rake in today EB: i got a little monsters poster, it's so awesome. i'm going to watch it again today, the applejuice scene was so funny. TG: oh hell that is such a coincidence i just found an unopened container of apple juice in my closet it is like fucking christmas up in here EB: ok thats fine, but i just have one question and then a word of caution. have you ever seen a movie called little monsters starring howie mandel and fred savage? TG: but TG: the seal on the bottle is unbroken TG: are you suggesting someone put piss in my apple juice at the factory EB: all im saying is don't you think monster howie mandel has the power to do something as simple as reseal a bottle? EB: try using your brain numbnuts. TG: why did the fat kid or whoever drank it know what piss tasted like TG: i mean his reaction was nigh instantaneous EB: it was the 15th day in a row howie mandel peed in his juice. TG: ok i can accept that TG: monster B-list celebrity douchebags are cunning and persistent pranksters TG: also fred savage has a really punchable face TG: but who cares about this lets stop talking about it TG: did you get the beta yet EB: no. EB: did you? TG: man i got two copies already TG: but i dont care im not going to play it or anything the game sounds boring TG: did you see how it got slammed in game bro???? EB: game bro is a joke and we both know it. TG: yeah TG: why dont you go check your mail maybe its there now EB: alright.
You see the view of your yard from your window.
Hanging from the tree is your TIRE SWING. In a kid's yard, a tree without a tire swing is like a proper gentleman without a monocle. That is to say, HE CAN HARDLY BE CONSIDERED A TERRIBLY PROPER GENTLEMAN AT ALL.
And there beside your driveway is the mailbox.
The little red arm-swingy-dealy thing or whatever it is called is flipped up!
What the hell is that thing called anyway. You do not have time for these semantics. The red flippy-lever thing means you have new mail. And that means the beta might be here!
You are about to hurry down stairs when you hear a car pull into the driveway. It looks like your DAD has returned from the grocery store.
Oh great. He is beating you to the mail.
If you go down stairs to get it, he will likely monopolize hours of your time. You decide to chill out up here for a while until the dust settles.
Sometimes you feel like you are trapped in this room. Stuck, if you will, in a sense which possibly borders on the titular.
And now your chum is pestering you again. The clockwork of friendship turns ceaselessly, operating the swing-lever dealies of harassment in perpetuity!
Whatever. The dude can just hold his damn horses.
You've put countless manhours into this assortment of quality titles.
You decide to consult with the Colonel's bottomless wisdom. Good grief this thing is huge. It could kill a cat if you dropped it.
But to really dig into this hefty book, you will have to captchalogue it. You are not sure you are ready to logjam your other ARTIFACTS beneath it just yet.
What did you just say?? You don't want to clog up your...
Oh, Jesus. In a momentary lapse of concentration, you accidentally captchalogue the arms again.
You don't think the situation is quite dire enough to go all the way to "RANCOROUS", but you still feel the PESTERCHUM client should reflect your mood change in some way.
"BULLY" will have to do. You guess.
This unsurprisingly does nothing whatsoever.
Oh, right, you forgot your chum is still pestering you.
TG: is it there TG: plz say yes TG: maybe you can play with TT shes been pestering me all day about it TG: shes mackin on me so hard all the time i start to feel embarrassed for her TG: i mean not that i can blame her or anything EB: yes, it is understandable because you are really attractive. i am attracted to you. TG: thank you EB: jk haha. EB: no, i don't have it yet. EB: my dad has the mail and i guess i have to go get it from him and see if it's there. EB: and i've been busy spending all afternoon shitting around with my stupid sylladex. EB: it's so frustrating. TG: whats your modus EB: what? TG: how do you retrieve artifacts from it EB: oh. like one at a time i guess. and if i put too much in, something falls out. TG: stack?? hahahahahaha EB: what is yours? TG: hash map TG: my bro taught me a few tricks he basically knows everything and is awesome EB: what the hell is that? TG: you should probably brush up on your data structures EB: i guess. TG: did you at least allocate your strife specibus EB: no. TG: it could free up a card for you TG: plus let you attack stuff whenever things get too hot to handle TG: which is never TG: what have you got EB: well, i've got a hammer but it's trapped under some arms. TG: wow you really suck at this dont you TG: just get rid of the arms and then allocate the hammer to the specibus EB: how? TG: i dont know just use the arms on any old thing and see if it works
You stick the FAKE ARMS in the CAKE on your bed.
This definitely makes the CAKE at least 300% more hilarious. You're sure COLONEL SASSACRE would know the precise index of elevated hilarity.
You check the back of your STRIFE SPECIBUS for the KIND ABSTRATUS you have in mind for it.
Your STRIFE SPECIBUS has been ALLOCATED with the HAMMERKIND ABSTRATUS.
The HAMMER has been moved from your CAPTCHALOGUE DECK to your STRIFE DECK.
EB: ok, i did it. TG: hammerkind? EB: yeah. TG: ok that will be the permanent allocation for your specibus TG: i guess i should have mentioned that EB: uh... TG: hope you like hammers dude! EB: yeah, that's fine i guess. i can't imagine it's going to be all that relevant.
Now that you've got some space in your SYLLADEX to work with, you figure you might as well start squandering it immediately.
Ordinarily this ridiculous book would be way too heavy to carry around in any practical way. You guess maybe this is one respect in which the cards present some convenience.
It might come in handy if you ever need something that burns easily.
You expend your final card on the MAGICIAN'S HAT.
You don't have a free card in your SYLLADEX!
However, you are able to MERGE the BEAGLE PUSS with the MAGICIAN'S HAT to create a CLEVER DISGUISE.
John? Who is this "John" you speak of? You are quite certain there has never been, nor ever will be...
Yeah, this is a really shitty disguise.
While you are wearing the items, they remain on the card, but it is temporarily removed from the deck, thus freeing up the cards beneath it.
You exit into the HALLWAY.
On one wall hangs a picture of a fella who sure knows how to have a laugh, a man after your own heart. You always thought he looked a lot like Michael Cera. But your DAD swears on the many HALLOWED TOMBS of Egypt that it is not. You're not sure about that though.
On the other wall is one of your DAD'S stupid clowns. Or HARLEQUINS, as he is quick to correct anyone who would venture such brazen assumption.
The accursed odor of fresh baking wafts into your newfound nostrils. Something is brewing in the KITCHEN. It must be the connivings of your arch nemesis, BETTY CROCKER, and the rich, buttery aroma of her plot stinks to high heaven.
This mission is going to be more difficult than you imagined.
You check out the shelves of FANCIFUL HARLEQUINS.
Look at this fucking garbage. You hate this stuff. Funny is funny, but your DAD sure can be a real cornball.
Sometimes at night you pray for burglars.
A bright orange flame flickers in the FIREPLACE. It doesn't matter that it's April and not terribly chilly outside. In a home, a FIREPLACE needs a fire, because that's what FIREPLACE is for. A fire BELONGS in a FIREPLACE, dammit, cata(ptcha)gorically, at all times, without exception.
As domestic myth of unaccountable origin holds, a home borrows the spirit of the flame for as long as it makes a guest of it, much as the moon takes liberty with the sun's rays.
"The moon's an arrant thief, and her pale fire she snatches from the sun." -Mark Twain
You are almost certain Mark Twain said that.
It doesn't burn as quickly as you hoped.
Each GAMEBRO MAGAZINE is guaranteed to be printed on 40% recycled asbestos. For big ups to Mother Earth, yo.
You examine the SACRED URN containing your departed NANNA'S ASHES.
When your father gives her portrait a wistful glance now and then, you can tell it brings back painful memories. A tall bookshelf. A ladder. An unabridged COLONEL SASSACRE'S.
He never wants to talk about it.

2019.06.10 03:48 OldmanRevived i saw two movies (The Perfection, Gloria Bell)

catching up on some recent titles that i missed.
first was The Perfection
quartets and eroticism are two things that shouldn't go together, yet they both make an intriguing combination. one acts as a precursor to golden performances, while the other concerns the aesthetics of sexual desire. "The Perfection" knows its way around the art form in the center and backstage, formatting the toll that it takes on the desperate cellists and their repertoires. Charlotte (Allison Williams) was previously a talented young student who was forced to leave Bachoff, a prestigious music school in Boston, to care for her terminally ill mother. after her passing, Charlotte reaches out to Anton (Steven Weber), the head of the academy, and travels to Shanghai to join him in selecting a new student.
she befriends Lizzie (Logan Browning), Anton's current star pupil who replaced Charlotte after her exit at Bachoff. the two had an earlier encounter in the past, and now seem to quickly catch lust for each other. Lizzie persuades Charlotte into performing a small cello duet in front of their acquainted teachers from the old days. their joy is coming less from the instruments, and more from the sensation they gain from each other. their sophistication tears away once the two go out clubbing and end up in pound town (kek). but, something odd occurred earlier that night. as they were walking through the academy, they stumbled upon a man in horrible condition. thanks to a knowledgeable passerby, we learn that he was probably stricken with a case of Who-Knows-What: that one conditional fever where your vomit contains hallucinatory insects.
gee, i sure hope neither one of our two heroines became ill with that same disease. what? one of them did? well then, i retract my earlier statement. Lizzie awakens with what she percieves as a hangover, but the side effects prove otherwise. she attempts to inferiorize it by taking ibuprofen with a shot of alcohol (never, even in my heaviest drinking days, would i consider that a cure), and joins Charlotte on a trip through rural China. Lizzie begins to feel progressively worse, and as a result, abuses the medication even more. she spirals into panic once she scans the maggots in her retch, frightening the other passengers until they get ejected from the bus driver. stranded on the countryside, Lizzie becomes so severely ill that Charlotte has to take matters into her own hands.
let's step on the brakes for a moment. how did this movie start off as a purifying love story, but then derail into a hard-edged thriller? i'm usually not the type that regards that technique with positivity, and it did take something extra in order to get me fully involved. i would have expected the whole experience to be a dream, especially with the corny rewind scrabble that appears shortly afterwards to take us back a few scenes. but, as soon as the story takes time to flesh itself out, it exceedingly builds. "The Perfection" wants to start off light, then slowly corner itself into cutting wit.
you begin to ask yourself if you really trust any of these people. starting with Charlotte's upbringing, in which she was in and out of mental facilities due to her personal troubles, it's obvious that there are traumas that still haunt her, you just have to dig really deep to find them. Lizzie supposedly puts on a smile and a cheerful attitude, but you sense more or less the same with her. now we move to the teachers. it can be agreed that no brow is raised higher than that of a music instructor. if you get a single note wrong, you might as well jab at their ears with an ice pick. Anton is the defining culprit. Lizzie and Charlotte both sport an eighth-note tattoo, which is a symbol for those indoctrinated into an elite group of students belonging to Anton and his peers. that says enough about the way he runs things.
"The Perfection" is up and running through a different selection of tones, and monopolizes execution until you throw your arms in the air and give up trying to move ahead. Allison Williams and Logan Browning are both earnest up comers who gleam up when given the opportunity. the movie is also luxuriant with gifted cinematography, and compiles superb pieces from Sir Neville Marriner on the soundtrack. if you go in wanting a look into the lives of cellists, you're only going to learn the obvious: quartets are enough to make a woman sick.

next was Gloria Bell
picture a seedy cocktail bar in Los Angeles, where you weave across the nightly crowd letting loose on the dance floor. tucked in the back is Gloria (Julianne Moore), a middle-aged divorcee that spends her nights scuttling through the city, trying to regain appreciation for life. at the clubs, some men are charming enough to get her off the barstool. her connections with them are short lived and feature little to no infatuation. they seem more like surveys to fill the void that her husband left all those years ago. on the bright side, not all is lost. she still visits regularly with her two children: Anne (Caren Pistorius), a kindhearted yoga instructor, and Peter (Michael Cera), an uninspired married man who takes care of his infant daughter while his wife is away.
one night, Gloria meets Arnold (John Turturro), a divorcee like herself, and the two hit it off. in terms of marriage, both of them have gone around the bend, becoming fixtures on the subject. they begin sleeping together and start a relationship not long afterwards. as they draw closer, they find themselves landing on the same feeling that lent them here in the first place, and become more confident in sharing their lives. however, Gloria is annoyed after Arnold reveals that he still financially supports his ex-wife and two daughters, the latter of which are unemployed and make incessant demands of him.
the problem is small enough to put aside for a while. Gloria introduces Arnold to her family at Peter's birthday party, consisting of her ex-husband Dustin (Brad Garrett) and his new wife, Fiona (Jeanne Tripplehorn). as the family rejoices, there are subtle feelings of anger and contempt due to the past. Arnold eventually feels unwelcome, and removes himself silently. he's believed to be a modest man, but he actively tries to keep himself hidden. after some time apart, he finally manages to win Gloria back, and improves himself by ignoring the multiple calls from his wife, who would shame him for finding another woman.
"Gloria Bell" isn't a slap-happy romance story. these characters have real personalities, real pasts, real fears, and real possibilities. Julianne Moore carries a certain breed of elegance with her body language. Gloria as a character is casual, but unsure in her everyday life. when things pile up on her, she slips into a daze of drinking and partying with random strangers. joined by her actions and choices, she's taken back by Arnold after he regards her as the most beautiful and intelligent person he’s ever known. that trick starts off well, but eventually becomes desperate. after being hurt one too many times, she protests by hurting those in her social circle. it's a fine performance, and Moore provides a combination of being unfazed and shattered by the events of her life.
John Turturro was affluent, and contrasted the doomed love between Arnold and Gloria as a starting point. writer and director Sebastián Lelio finds the truth beneath the pain by having dialogue of brutal honesty, such as in the scene where Anne flies to Sweden, and Gloria has to accept that her daughter is grown up. with utter frankness, the movie feels voyeuristic, in that we're catching a glimpse of other people's lives. Gloria is free-spirited and optimistic, yet we're interested in what remains of her after something has been lost.
most things are virtually going right in her life. she has a steady job, makes a decent income, and is on decent terms with Dustin. being alone is the only thing that makes her distraught, but that gradually fixes itself along the way. we're toyed around with by her obsessions, and can never tell where she's going. one moment she's merrily singing along to Olivia Newton-John, the next, she's crying on her living room floor.
the movie remains consistently unique and interesting. Lelio creates the desperate agony of two people so smart they understand their problems intimately, yet so neurotic they are captive to them. as ominous as the characters are with their previous lives, the story coils back upon itself, and redefines them as if you were hearing gossip from one of their friends. "Gloria Bell" contains an in-depth look into the many woes of the middle-age dating scene, with Moore sticking to her guns and making the best of herself, just as every divorcee should.
