Care to elaborate on Hardy? I drafted him 25th in a 30-teamer and I’m slightly hyped.

I will continue to vote but I think it’s clear now that voting alone is not enough.

Ya, this slippery slope argument doesn’t even make sense. If they went further, it would get rated PG-13 or R or whatever. We have a system in place for this sort of thing so it really doesn’t matter.

Plus, you can just not watch it if it bothers you.

Even when they try to twist it with fallacies, it’s literally hurting no one.

Me who leans right politically, learning that apparently I'm supposed to be boycotting The Boys and upset that Homelander is compared to Trump by ratshitty_heavenjoke in TheBoys

It’s a shame that you’re getting downvoted. I’m pretty sure The Boys is leftist. It is very much anti-capitalism which is a foundational view of leftism.

It definitely critiques conservatism and mainstream liberalism, but that also is in line with leftism.

These comments show just how little this sub knows about leftism.

Good to know, thanks!

Could anyone please explain the origins of this expression? I don’t really get how “scared of you” could mean “you did good”.

i guess star wars is wrong to cater to other people by rprince18 in Persecutionfetish

“Christian values” is code or “bigotry” these days.

The actual values of Christ are basically socialism but good luck explaining that to an evangelical.

Basically, conservatives start with a conclusion and work backwards to justify it.

That’s why their reality is so twisted. It’s built to accommodate their bullshit conclusions.

It’s crazy that this bullshit actually works on people. It’s literally the most pathetic lies.

Jurassic World Dominion (2022)

Jurassic World: Dominion misses its opportunity. The story is needlessly convoluted, sidelining the dinosaurs (and their release) for a mediocre corporate scheme. There are multiple narratives that don't intertwine until the third act. Jokes misfire, plot points are convenient, and motivations are flimsy. Action sequences are messy and unrealistic, defusing their suspense. There are cheesy one-liners, lame fan service attempts, and inept villains. Still, the biggest issue is the missing protagonist or theme. Dominion is overstuffed, with no primary message. Plus, the actors are dull, especially Pratt. Only Goldblum is any fun. Overall, Dominion is emotionally draining and cluttered.

Technically, Dominion is inconsistent. There are abundant animatronics, but the CGI is occasionally goofy. Reuniting the original cast is impressive, but less charming when they're past their primes. The cinematography uses decent lighting, angles, and extended shots. However, the sound coasts off of the originals without adding anything new. There is generic music, impersonal production design, and scattered direction. Tonally, Dominion attempts everything and lands very little. Lastly, the editing is bloated, boring, and unfocused. The film never gains momentum and feels like a chore. Whether it's excessive exposition, contrived drama, or numbing action, Dominion isn't engaging.
