it's really no fun to get in even mild arguments with people on here. I don't know why I ever thought otherwise.

"But Sean," you say, "you could have avoided the mild arguments by not responding. The power was within you all along!"

I reviewed episode 8 of Squid Game, a short sharp shock, for @decider. It's veering a bit towards action-movie cliches at this point, but it's still compelling television decider.com/2021/10/22/squid…

I do have to say that reciting the Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear, the most famous dialogue in the entire series, in a borderline unintelligible whisper broken up by cuts to action in another room was a bold choice

I don't mean to sound like it was all bad, I appreciated the scale of the ships and soldiery, I liked the Sardaukar voices and parachuteless paratrooping, Bardem doing Stillgar Chigurh was fun, it's just not much beyond that

I also liked the costuming, which was not groundbreaking but didn't really need to be.

call me old-fashioned, but I think if the title card in the film reads "Part 1," the ads for the film should read "Part 1," bc not everyone in the world reads screenwriter/director interviews or interprets the ambiguous tagline "it begins" as also meaning "and it doesn't end"

Yes, that shock is often used as a staging area for exploitation, but it's also a sensation that leaves audiences vulnerable, shaken, and ready to see and understand new things.

The real body of a very fat person has tremendous power on screen because we're something culture goes out of its way to suppress and ignore. Put us in front of a camera and the effect is automatically shocking and magnetic.

What I despise most about fat suits is that they do not result in actors looking like fat people. They create this weird uncanny sense of "fatness" uncoupled from the bodies of actual human beings. It has no presence. It is airless, lazy visual cruelty.

i mean they got rid of his evil homosexuality, so if the point you're making is that fat people don't deserve similar consideration, i wish you the very best in all your future endeavors
