ok tv broad, reccomend me some GOOD 80s/90s action movies, but they have to be somewhat obscure because i've already seen pritty much all of the classics. Shwartzenegger,Stalone,Norris,Seagal,Van Dam,Lungren etc...

Just saw Elysium and I hope that racist piece of shit never gets a sequel.
User avatar #23697 to #23668 - eight (07/17/2014) [-]
"Did I say it was a race issue? I say'd that because the populations of both Earth and Elysium show about as much diversity as KKK rally. "

I guess you've never been to the south then. Not much diversity here either. We have three colors, and generally, these colors do not mix. The whites are the "rich", the browns are few and far between in the rural areas and the blacks are the poor.

Also, I'm glad that you saw all of Earth in Elysium. I didn't get that kind viewing, but I'm sure that would have made it a possibly obvious race issue. Now of course, you did say it was a race issue, that's what your first post was entirely about.

"I say the movie is a race issue because it falls in line with liberal party's ideals and beliefs which Blomkamp is. "

Well, it's not unheard of that politics from real life might bleed into fictional life. But I still don't see what that has to do with race. And I really have no idea why you're so focused on politics while watching a movie when you should be focusing on the entertainment value.

"And the reason its important to understand who the people that create your media is important because many of them infuse their ideals into their creations. This is simple comprehension. "

And you either agree with those ideals or you don't. Is your mind so impressionable that you fear being subjected to the beliefs and opinions of others? It's not like those ideals were shoved down your throat in Elysium. And it certainly wasn't the point of the film.
User avatar #23698 to #23697 - MrDeadiron (07/17/2014) [-]
Well were just going to agree, but whatever.
User avatar #23699 to #23698 - eight (07/17/2014) [-]
Well, we definitely won't if you give up in the discussion.

- It's clear you have a biased aggression toward liberals as noted by your several negative comments toward them.
- It's clear you dislike the director, for his liberal status and the movie too, again as noted by your comments.
- It's clear that you've researched the movie and its creators before the viewing as per your own words. You created a bias here. You created your own agenda.
- I think that because of this, your bias against liberals carried into the viewing of the film itself. You had an agenda to point out every liberal happening within the film. This is called confirmation bias.

The irony of course resides within your initial complaint, being about racism. What drives racism? Prejudice. By your comments, it would seem you're quite prejudice, at least toward the "liberal agenda". You're not so much better than the 'liberals'' that you clearly dislike.
User avatar #23700 to #23699 - MrDeadiron (07/17/2014) [-]
No, I have aggression towards racism which is rife throughout both political parties and I'd be talking about conservatives if this movie was made by one.

it wasn't great, but how was it racist?
User avatar #23673 to #23672 - MrDeadiron (07/17/2014) [-]
So you clearly realized the agenda of the movie right? The clear symbolism between Elysium being America and the Earth being Mexico. This entire movie is just so racist that it's unbelievable, and I'll tell you why. I'll accept the fact that only the super rich are in Elysium and that the poor and middle class and anyone who isn't a billionaire is on Earth and I can accept that the fact that it takes place in Los Angeles, so that there would be a lot of Spanish and Hispanic people, but the fact that the only white person you see who isn't a villain is Matt Damon, and that the vast majority of the villains are white, it's like 99% of them. I mean going off the current amount of billionaires in the world you'd think Elysium would be a little more diverse. The vast majority of the minorities in the movie that are shown as doing drugs or stealing from each other, that's stereotypically offensive to say the least. The entire movie is basically suggesting that brown people can't create and maintain of successful civilization without the white people and the person who has to save them and lift up the masses from their fate is again a white person. If they had at least made both groups more ethnically diverse I could accept the idea that the Earth's squandered resources was what was preventing society from rebuilding. And if the movies had at least taken place in some South American country I could take it as the clear call for border reform that the Director feels America needs, and if you couldn't see that allegory 5 minutes into the film you need to get your eyes checked. Basically the entire movie is, I hope unintentionally, saying that brown people aren't capable of doing everything that white people can.

tl;dr Brown people can't do anything that white people can.

Nope. But you could really insert any two cultures in there and a lot of it would workout the same. I try to avoid looking for symbolism in movies and I try and enjoy them for what they are. Even more so, I try to avoid intentionally doing this, because really, if you're looking for it, you'll find it. That's why it's interpretation.
User avatar #23676 to #23675 - MrDeadiron (07/17/2014) [-]
Like I said I could accept the fantasy for what it is if the message wasn't so obvious.
User avatar #23679 to #23676 - eight (07/17/2014) [-]
Wasn't obvious to everyone. I wonder if it's even racist at all and you're not just projecting your interpretation onto the film.

You could be mistaking racial issues with cultural issues. Which is to say the intentions of the filmakers was not to create conflict between races, but rather bring forth real problems this world sees every day or could see in the near future between society itself.
Meaning, it doesn't matter what race, it matters what class of people. I mean, someone has to be the majority lower class, right? It has to be someone, especially in a movie that revolves entirely around the extreme rich and extreme poor. A decision has to be made in light of that, they have to pick a single majority race, so how do they choose? Someone is going to get pissed off the way their race is being represented. White people, black people, brown people, yellow people, someone won't like it.

Oh please seriously when you watch a movie you need to know who made the movie and see whether or not there is an agenda. It's like in the gaming community the agenda that these big corporations like EA have is to make money.

I'm not a fan of bipartisanship, but Hollywood is full of liberals trying to cram their agendas down your throat and it was blatantly obvious in this one. I mean seriously it was clear allegory for border control and the subtle maybe unintentional racism is rife throughout this entire movie.

I've seen multiple videos and read several books talking about how you can't get work in Hollywood if you're on the other end of the political spectrum.

Seriously what happened to these great pieces of narrative that created worlds that I'd dream about at night.

User avatar #23681 to #23680 - eight (07/17/2014) [-]
"Oh please seriously when you watch a movie you need to know who made the movie and see whether or not there is an agenda."

Lol, no you don't. Sometimes I have no idea who the director of a film is, sometimes I just don't care. So what if there is an agenda in the film. You'll either agree or disagree with whatever it's trying to argue. That doesn't mean you can't still enjoy the movie.

"It's like in the gaming community the agenda that these big corporations like EA have is to make money. "

I'm not much of a gamer, but again, I really wouldn't care. My interest is in the game, not the politics behind it.

"I'm not a fan of bipartisanship, but Hollywood is full of liberals trying to cram their agendas down your throat and it was blatantly obvious in this one. I"

Don't worry, all political parties do this in some form or another. Lets not be hypocritical about political parties.

"I mean seriously it was clear allegory for border control and the subtle maybe unintentional racism is rife throughout this entire movie. "

Border control is a real issue across the world, not just in America. Racism is a big topic to. But seeing how politically interested you seem to be, I'd say it's more than likely you're just projecting your own views, thoughts and opinions on an easy target.

"I've seen multiple videos and read several books talking about how you can't get work in Hollywood if you're on the other end of the political spectrum. "

Okay. Which spectrum is that? It's true that if you're poor, unknown and without connections, getting into any kind of entertainment job, including writing can be difficult.


"Seriously what happened to these great pieces of narrative that created worlds that I'd dream about at night. "

You probably don't realize it, but those great narratives you speak of probably reflect the problems of the time they were written in. Take LOTR as an example. Well known. Widely loved. But it's still a story about real problems, specifically WW1-2.

We're all ignorant about something, you included, so that's not really a good insult.

I wouldn't say I'm ignorant regarding film, maybe somewhat when it comes to politics. However, no matter how politically inclined I could be, that would never require me to analyze something that is literally meant to be taken at face value the majority of the time.

You talking about this movie and your interpretation of apparent political and racial biases simply isn't important. It doesn't matter. It's fiction, inspired by real world problems, maybe, but it's still fiction. You should also probably try your hand at the politics board, considering this is your main point, rather than the film itself.
User avatar #23684 to #23683 - MrDeadiron (07/17/2014) [-]
You are ignorant of the blatantly obvious message of the film and the geo political climate of Holloywood.
User avatar #23686 to #23684 - eight (07/17/2014) [-]
It isn't a blatantly obvious message, that's the point I'm trying to make. What you've described as evidence to support this claim just isn't convincing. It sounds more like an interpretation. It seems more like you're projecting your own insecurities towards the film, which would indeed give it the perspective of being obvious, in reality, it isn't.

I care nothing for the "geo political climate of Hollywood" so yes, I am ignorant in regard to that. However, I can't fathom why anyone would care about it.

How do you not see the direct parallels?
User avatar #23695 to #23694 - eight (07/17/2014) [-]
Well, first off, immigration is not a race issue. It's a citizenship issue.

There are many things paralleled to reality within film and literature. Remember my Lord of The Rings example? It may be intentional, it may be unintentional. Sometimes it's subtle, others times it isn't. Understand?
User avatar #23696 to #23695 - MrDeadiron (07/17/2014) [-]
Did I say it was a race issue? I say'd that because the populations of both Earth and Elysium show about as much diversity as KKK rally.

I say the movie is a race issue because it falls in line with liberal party's ideals and beliefs which Blomkamp is.

And the reason its important to understand who the people that create your media is important because many of them infuse their ideals into their creations. This is simple comprehension.

took about 3 weeks to bang through buffy the vampire slayer
one episode was a complete mind fuck at the end
one with title "hush" has vote for creepiest thing to fuck you up in the head
now we get to willow and bisexualism i believe she bi because she was never disliked kissing oz or xander she just liked tara kisses more which is understandable women are soft, but for her to completely write out penis is a weird character mood swing
buffy character development is slight only because at the end she was given a much more narrow responsibility "protect these girls and you save the world" and she became strict and less flighty than the beginning which made her a hypocrite
dawn summers the magic key little sister is self centered and seemingly doesnt have her own group to play nice with she often throws tantrums and thinks she repels people away she notice that people have problems and are trying to solve them mostly because she is 15 year old hanging around her sisters 20 something then the whole "you are real to me even if you made 6 months and all my childhood memories with you are faker than a prada bag in chinatown" is retarded you were screwed into believing something that aint real and you want to let it live
spike best character no question
buffy love life other than spike is complete shit angel and riley where terrible i feel like the sex between riley and her were the premise of two episodes and angel was better when he has bad just because she didnt talk about him in a annoyingly lusting way
honorable mention drusila knows how to get make want crazy women
end was cool gave me some chills
as did the 3rd to last ep or prom of s3 she tried to keep it secret but everyone seemingly knew something
best season 7 because i like large grouping and plans
last gripe being she needed the 1st slayer power and threaten to kill her as if she could

TL;DR binge watched buffy, willow bi, buffy not a deleveloped character, dawn selfish, SPIKE, her love life is shitty

So I'm looking for a very specific Cold Case episode,
The only things I remember from that one episode were
the fact that the murder took place in 1969, because there was a lot of
fuzz about the moonlanding, and a little boy was killed by his friend,
and dumped into a river or something.

anybody has any idea what episode it might be?
#23657 - kayzl (07/15/2014) [-]
This is, without a doubt, Christopher Nolan's greatest work, if not the greatest movie of all time. The symbolism is deep and infinite, the opening scene alone
>If I pulled that off, will you die?
>It would be extremely painful
>your a big guy
>For you
The sheer ingenuity of this writing is how at first glance it's trivial dialogue. The more observant viewer might wonder if "for you" was a response to "your a big guy" or if he was interrupted by "your a big guy" and the full sentence was meant to be "It would be extremely painful for you". But why does the CIA agent, out of nowhere, say "your a big guy"? It is, or course, a delicate implication, large men are often thought to be strong and stoic, unwilling to show reaction to pain. It is also a metaphor for Bane as CIA first suggests when he changes from calm disconnectedness from Barsad (the driver of the jeep to the plane) to sudden excitement, Bane is an extremely notorious criminal, he is "big" especially for an agent of the law, or "for you" (the CIA agent). It might also mean "big", as in magnanimous, implying that Bane has the repute of benevolent terrorist, a sort of modern day Robin Hood, which is what he is to many people later in the movie, and CIA agent doubts that he would hurt an innocent man such as CIA. It might even have been ribbing, Bane is extremely important for the CIA agent, suggesting that he is low ranking.
>if I pulled that off, will you die?
This sentence is even more ambiguous, only a fool would assume it is talking about a literal mask. It refers to Bane's identity in the eyes of everyone else, "No one care who I was until I put on the mask". CIA might have been asking if what he wanted was recognition by many, for whatever purpose, it is an interrogation scene after all, but if we go deeper it is a allegory for society - in society a person's value is judged by everyone else, a sort of irony for a peasant which the film deals a lot with.

>Many people have been puzzled over some of the dialogue in Dark Knight Rises. This piece of dialogue has attracted the most amount of discussion.
CIA: You’re a big guy Bane: For you
Is he saying “I am a big guy compared to you” or “it will be painful for you if you pull of my mask” ?
A: It was written meaning it would be painful for you, but I intoned it meaning “I’m a big guy for you.”

It is and I'm not sure why. It would seem, judging by the forum discussions, a lot of people just don't 'get' it.

The concept fascinates me, so it's no surprise that I liked it. It isn't a flawless movie either, there are obvious issues. But it's well acted with a compelling story and likeable characters. It also ends well, it could have been better, but the ending could have been much worse. It was more bittersweet which is sort of refreshing compared to the other stuff I've seen lately.

It's certainly a movie I'd watch again.
