What Are You Wearing Today, it's a thread posted 3x a week

Cool. Not sure what you mean by "when you cop" but if you can indulge one more question: Is there like a "Ed Hardy" or "The Buckle" of Western wear? I've searched scully lace up shirts across google for a bit now and I don't find much in the way of this stylish distressed one I posted.

Don't have to like it, but any idea where I could get it?

I went from 5'10" to 6'3" between 17-18, topping out at 6'6" at 24. Growing up normal height made me slow to adapt to how you instantly attract attention at abnormal height. Learn to walk the walk, and the rest falls away. It'll get easier for you, I promise.

My wife is 5'6," and I love her to pieces, but secretly..... super secretly.... I wish she was 6'6" too. That would just be... divine. We'd have conversations above people in crowds.

Or, sadder, this.

Playing stealth builds is great as you get in close without being noticed and you get to hear all kinds of interesting dialogue. PSA from personal experience I can confirm that people don't like this when you try it IRL.

No One Lives Forever 2 has some of my favorites. Another. You sneak up on some guards and it goes something like this:

Guard #1: So I get there, and she's totally naked!

Guard #2: Whoa! So what did you do?

Guard #1: What do you think I did?

Guard #2: I know what I would've done

Guard #1: Well, then you know!

Guard #2: So... how was she?

Guard #1: How was she what?

Guard #2: You know....

Guard #1: ...I don't think I do...

Guard #2: ...what are we talking about?

Ya if anything it gives them attention and story to tell their internet friends later.

None of these movies are announced, therefore no guarantee that they're being made. I've removed all of these multiple Joker submissions by "sources" until something is legitimately announced by a studio.

10 months ago, news about this movie

13 days ago, another Joker movie - the Leto Joker film - was reported to Variety by "sources."

9 months ago, a Harley Quinn/Leto Joker movie was mentioned

If you wish to talk about speculation on Joker movies, please visit /r/dc_cinematic

Yea well Variety is a reputable as you can get. If it had been rumored by like comicbookmovies.com or some shit I could understand skepticism.

Sources tell Variety

This is why I loath unnamed sources.

This isn't b-roll. This is b-roll.

I dont think asking someone to move shows entitlement. It's just asking. If they had pitched a fit and caused a scene then sure. I don't think that was implied though.

Kudos for using music unknown to most people

Cinemascore is less a measurement of quality and more a measurement of if the audiences got what they expected.

The audiences expected a horror movie with jump scares and ghosts in a haunted house, and it was instead a family drama with a tense and unsettling tone.

The same goes for mother!, It comes at Night, and the Witch. Horror is so formulaic that when these movies do something different with the genre, audiences don't get what they wanted.

Also about whether or not they'd recommend it, see it again, buy it on DVD, etc, but yeeesssss.

If reddit could ever understand this I would be sooooo happy

Pro tip: the people that are laughing/talking loudly are the most terrified.

I kept telling myself that as the redneck next to me kept chuckling through every horrendous sequence.

I thought the point was for Paimon to inhabit his body and it was the demon making the clucking noise all along.

No idea how it took me this long before I watched Christine, but damn that was a legit movie. I'm not a bookworm by any means but I've read that Stephen King is to horror kind of what Marvel was to comics - he developed a lot of personal character around whatever the supernatural element was.

So Arnie gets a car and it becomes his superpower, killing bullies and getting even. It basically consumes him, regardless of whether it's his own behavior or possession. Similar turn of events happen in Akira and Chronicle, the nerdy guy getting drunk with power and becoming homicidal.

I've checked it out on tvtropes but I don't see what I'm referring to.

Anyone have an earlier example of this trope?

Chronicles?

Add: I don't sure about correct name but it's a movie about 4 guys going on party, entering some closed area and getting super powers on next day.

I never got a "nerdy" vibe from Tetsuo in Akira, though. He's a bit of a runt/outcast in Kaneda's gang who's trying to punch above his weight, but he's a far cry from a nerd.

Yeah thats good too. Runt/outcast/picked on/not th2 cool one at all/etc. Kinda the vibe i was attempting to describe.

I know that happens in The Quick and the Dead but that’s from the 90s.

Yeah I want to say I've seen all Peckipah's movies and I don't remember that shot in any. Could be wrong though.

tvtropes.org will prob have more examples than you can shake a stick at

Original Poster4 points · 4 days ago

I tried tvtropes.org, and this is what raised my question. They post a lot of movies that arent horror or just arent that mainstream. Sure there is a few such as the shining but not enough to have such a well known trope that horror films have made a name for themselves.

Out of the 50 movies considered here, 10% (5 out of 50) of them have black characters who die first.

Hard to find ones where the black dude dies first.

I've personally always thought it was a dumb myth that people like to repeat because it sounds funny, like "welcome to urf" or the idea that steroids make you "rage out."

Tough question. Eyes Without A Face, maybe, although it's hard to call it really "disturbing" given what we've grown up with these days.

M is fucked up, in a different way.

The Mummy with Tom Cruise really feels like a generic action movie to me from the trailers. I'm glad someone liked it though. I'm wondering, whats so good about it to you? (Not trying to make fun of you, genuinely wondering)

Not sure i'm the guy you meant to reply to, i hated the Mummy.

The Mummy. Bad guys want to curse Arnold Volso, so they condemn him to return to life with unlimited powers of a god.

The color of your skin shouldn't have ANY influence on how you conduct yourself as a professional. Its like talking to a brick fucking wall.

Prob because you really aren't getting this.

  1. Your skin color affects your experience of the world, and your perspective.

  2. Different perspectives are good in art analysis.

But that shouldn't reflect on their criticism or review of a movie.......

Perspective absolutely changes your analysis of art
