How would you say the movie compares overall to Kurosawa’s best?

see more

I'd honestly take it over Seven Samurai, which is my favorite Kurosawa. Kobayashi was outstanding in his own right and it's a shame he'd only be recognized as a master in North America later than the usual Kurosawa, Ozu, and Mizoguchi. He's genuinely on par with all of them.

If Harakiri isn't his finest, it would be the brutal 9 1/2 hour long war epic The Human Condition.

I remember one user argued not long after the draft that Juolevi was intensely overrated because of his linemate, Victor Mete, selected 100th overall later in the same draft. Mete was smaller and had less points though, so he looked worse on paper.

Not sure if that's true or not but Juolevi was IMO picked too early. I expect him to work out less like a fifth overall pick and more like a mid-first rounder. Still a high ceiling, but also a little more likely to disappoint.

Interesting, any chance you'd have a link? I'd love to see that comment.

I'm not sure where I'd even find it now. I'm near certain it was in the offseason, after the draft but before the new season began.

To me the problem is more a matter of category, having a song writer as a candidate for the Nobel of literature feels as absurd as having a novelist competing for the Palme d'Or.

Pynchon has a better chance at winning the Palme d'Or than another literature prize. Sorry, Weerasethakul. Fuck you, Chang-Dong. If you never did the Kenosha Kid you don't deserve any award.

Where the fuck is Freedom by Amen Dunes in any of these lists? I mean Pitchfork gave it a best new music, so there is that, but

GOD DAMN.

I haven't gotten this excited about an indie rock album since The Suburbs came out in 2010.

Also, Felt by Suuns. Please anyone let me know I'm not alone in all this.

Quietus actually did review Freedom and were incredibly positive about it.

They cover so much music though that it's hard to expect every album they praise to make the list. The best thing to do is try what they picked over it, and understand Amen Dunes won't be on everyone's list. Doesn't mean it isn't great or anything.

Any list that isn’t totally dominated by US acts is a rare bonus in this sub, or reddit in general. Indieheads in Sweden don’t hang out on reddit :(

For sure. If American publications are allowed to have a US bias, I have no issue with The Quietus doing the same with the UK.

I would have loved to see him play in the NHL long-term, but it was a tough situation. Still a fantastic player though.

Awesome video for a nice track. Clairmont's one of the most exciting out of Canada right now, just hope he gets more attention.

He had such a way with words.

Face to Face is probably the biggest omission.

One out of three is perfectly acceptable. That's 33%, only 5% less than Armageddon.

Some More News is pretty incredible. I love how in-depth and vicious it can be.

Him and Sakic were my childhood heroes. It's weird to think how he's so obscure now.

This is why The Great8 deserved the cup. An elite superstar for over a decade. fighting so hard for the grand prize... and now he has it. It will be a moment he'll never forget, and I also didn't know he had a brother... but I know his brother is looking down with pride.

Props to you Ovi, you're a class act, and you'll go down in history as one of the best players of all time.

Now go drink some Stoli.

I mean Ovechkin is an incredible player but he deserved the cup because his team was the best last year and helped make that team so great. Ovechkin isn't the only player who is great, or had a tragic life to begin with. If the former always won the cup, Marcel Dionne would have won. If the latter always won the cup, Jordin Tootoo would have won.

Moore did mind though. He repeatedly didn't answer the bell after head hunting.

see more

IIRC he fought earlier in the game. If he didn't, just grab him from the front. It would be dirty, sure, but give him the chance to see it coming. A suckerpunch is more gutless than avoiding a fight altogether.
