  So I was bored and started watching this on netflix.

It is very very good.

However, if gay people being gay piss you off I would suggest not watching it since two of the characters are gay.

Essentially 8 people around the world are linked together and can basically hop into the bodies of others or converse with em n shit. Hard to tldr it really. Done by the wachowskies.

The two Matrix sequels were shit. The Matrix was good but retroactively bad (kinda like the opposite of the Star Wars prequels for me) though I won't actually call it a bad movie just because its sequels made its flaws all too evident.

The Invasion was assy as all hell despite having Nicole Kidman's hot ass and Daniel Craigs equally hot ass (or so I'm told).

Speed Racer was crap. Colorful crap but crap. Though I will say this might be the fault of the source material. Even Christina Ricci's hot ass couldn't save that movie.

Cloud Atlas was high concept sci-fi that was kinda okay. I personally did not enjoy it but ain't going to call it bad, just meh. Plus it had Tom Hanks and I really can't think of an actually bad movie he's been in despite his lack of hot ass.

I haven't watched Jupiter Ascending but it sounds like shit from all the reviews. The plot synopsis makes its sounds like a higher budget version of the old Sci-fi Channel fodder B movie Lazerhawk starring but not really Mark Hamill.

The only good movies they made were The Matrix (and maybe the Animatrix but last time I watched it it didn't hold up really but like The Matrix that might just be because of the shit later movies pulling it down), V for Vendetta, and maybe Cloud Atlas.

Not quite the level of fail that M. Night Shyguysmelonfuck fell to but still pretty bad.

From now on your opinion in movies and tv will be filed under "worthless trash opinion". The star wars prequels were bad and will always be bad.

The Star Wars prequels, Episode 3 in particular, were okay bordering on good. They certainly weren't what everyone was expecting but then there was no way they were going to live up to expectations or the fan fics people spent 20 years getting in their heads about the rise of the Empire. Its like what Robert Zemeckis said about his own sequels "When you make a film that no one knows about, its your baby. When you make a sequel, everyone has an opinion, and you can't please all of them."

Most of the people who think they are bad are fatty nerds who have this nostalgia golden cow view of the OT as being this perfect sacred movies or just whores who jump on the "Prequels suck" bandwagon because people can't form their own opinions.

I'm sorry to say despite being a massive fan of the original trilogy they weren't perfect either. Some spots were downright boring, the characters weren't written as clever as people think, and Episode 6 was worse then Episode 1 and 2 with its only real redeeming qualities the battle porn, Vader's bullshit, Palpy hamming it up, and Boba Fett going down like the bitch he is.

People who grew up with the Prequels, people who watched them like people in my generation did with the OT, don't have a problem with them and at times think the OT is shit. People who aren't such fat ass nerds who can't handle change and can't just enjoy themselves like yourself enjoy the prequels.

People like myself who have read through the old EU know what really bad Star Wars is can honestly say the Prequels are goddamn masterpieces compared to shit that writer like Karen Traviss, Kevin J Anderson, and Vonda McIntyre shit out with the Star Wars name on it. Go read Legacy of the Force, Crystal Star, any fucking thing with Karen Traviss's name on it, The Jedi Prince Series, Planet of Twilight, Darksaber, or watch the Ewoks cartoon and then come tell me about something being bad.

I know I'm going into dickish territory and I do apologize in advance because normally I like and respect you, but seriously go fuck yourself with that tired ass Prequel bashing. It gets fucking old after awhile.

It's not that they're gay that bothers me, it's that I didn't like how they were introduced. How a writer introduces a character, and what that first couple scene portrays them as (what sort of character traits are shown, etc) says a lot, and the first meeting we had with the lesbians was them being naked lesbians.

I'm of the opinion that just like violence, sex in a film can enhance the story (Watchmen) or cheapen it (Game of Thrones), and it comes down to the writing. Game of Thrones has a fantastic storyline, but there's just gotta be that fan service moment where so-and-so (and five nameless hookers) are naked, and this show felt similarly cheap.

There just wasn't much art to it, even though the opening had me very interested in the show. I wanted to know more about the DJ chick, and the cop seemed like he could be interesting, but the two lesbians were already boring, because they felt like a writing hack.

Like >>32914 eloquently stated "I like tits but if I want to see tits I'll watch a porno."

(or in my case, I'm about to pop in the movie Sin City, because I haven't watched it in years, and it's awesome. It's got tits, of course, but they're not a puerile addition to the script that don't really fit in to the flow of the story.)

Full frontal and a sex toy made it "way past R" and more purely pornographic. Wondering if I'm supposed to pull my dick out is a distraction from the story, and unlike the other characters, where a sex scene could be the culmination or high point of a story arc, having it right in the first episode for the two lesbians made it feel very "inserted because we want to push tits into every episode."

>2 and 3 weren't as good on their own as the first movie was on its own, but as a trilogy it's more cohesive and intelligent than most trilogies ever dream of being

There was alot of bloat in the movies, the two movies could have been compressed into one movie without losing any story and being stronger for it. I know the same thing could be said about the first two Prequel movies and I acknowledge I give them less shit because I enjoy them more though. But still, Reloaded was almost pure filler. It only served to set up Revolutions. Its the same problem more recent "Part 1" movies like with Harry Potter or Twiright suffer from, they are only there to pad out the series.

And the Architect was bad. He of course failed the movie adage of "show don't tell" with his wall of text speech. Just some dude who spouted alot of convoluted nonsense that added nothing to the plot and story but added plenty to the confusion and mess that was in the world they had created. The whole "humans are batteries" thing from the first movie was dumb, no doubt, but its easy to overlook it (and one can assume the humans are mistaken, the human farms may actually have other purpose such as processing power or just their version of a zoo, ideas that aren't much better then batteries but are still slightly better).

The later movies continue the battery theme but add on more shit like earlier Matrixes, controls and so much effort expended to keep the wool over the eyes of the humans. Effort that is apparently unneeded considering the Architect says they can live without the humans, whats the points of expending ungodly amount of time, effort, and power on creating the Matrix? Revenge? A zoo? A vacation spot for wealthy 1st world machines? None really make much sense for them to build the Matrix and keep rebuilding it.

They had created the Matrix 6 times and all had been destroyed. Things like the One and Zion were put into place as outlets to try correct a glitch pretty much. The agents hunting human's who are awaking and all that is kinda pointless considering they were wanting people to wake up and leave the Matrix to continue the cycle. Were the agents even aware of the masquerade? Smith didn't seem to be.

The Zion shit was terrible in every way, it was bland and not compelling at from the setting to the characters. Plus the defense was probably the dumbest thing ever. Completely unarmored mechs with machine guns against flying squid bots who soak up gun fire and only attack by slashing people to death or stabbing them.

>I think the latter movies got sidetracked by full-CGI battles between Smith and Neo that haven't aged well at a all

Hindsight's 20/20.
He'd been compliant up to that point and a tussle indoors would have posed a greater risk to everyone else inside.

Cops can also play it safe and cuff and shake down everybody they interview or detain, some people get sore about that sort of thing.

Also, fake gun/suicide-by-cop like the others have said.

He could have been drunk, special needs, or honestly dumb enough to have tried holding that female cop hostage, thinking he'd get away like that, instead of her smacking him upside the head and her partner emptying the magazine into him.

  They actually reshot scenes from the first Terminator, changed the storyline, and still made it look awesome.

Did you ever consider that not everyone who uses the internet is trying to do so to impress anyone, and some of us do so for our own personal amusement? If I want to impress people, I'll do that in the real world where it has a tangible benefit to my personal and professional networks. Talking to people on the internet is just for laughs, where I don't have to be so damned serious and watch everything I say like one must in today's reality.

Why are you so un-supportive of people doing our job for us?

It's common knowledge Benghazi was the #1 source of foreign suicide bombers in Iraq during the US occupation? That was a major staging area for global terrorism for a very long time, and is a much stronger one now.

Historically Libya has been an enemy state to the US to such a degree that the US fought its first foreign war in Libya to stop the piracy and slavery that the Barbary pirates were plaguing them with such that up to 20% of the US budget at times was put into paying tribute for shipping to pass unharmed. There has never been a time Libya was in any way an ally since.

Are we conveniently forgetting that Gadaffi only lost the support of his people and stopped being a "glorious revolutionary leader" when the US knocked on his door and told him to control his terrorist fucktard population and he agreed to have his security apparatus try to curtail the flow of fighters and munitions out of Libya?

Nothing good comes out of Libya, Gadaffi in his old age was at least a force we could sort of keep under some measure of control.

To be honest, I don't think you really know anything about the situation in any of these countries, at all, and you're just romanticizing the idea of running around being a revolutionary since you're not happy for some reason with a promising career and really just want to go get yourself shot needlessly to feel like it all mattered.

The thank you that the new Libya gave was to burn down the US Embassy and drag around the Ambassador's corpse beating it like a pinata. Get fucking real, the whole reason they fought against Gadaffi was because he was working with the US now instead of swatting F-16s out of the sky with his fist or whatever the fuck they thought.

The Facebook generation, who've grown up with "likes" and "upvotes" believe the internet is a popularity contest, and that your worth as a human being is dictated by the number of people, whom you've never met nor will they ever be a part of your life, on your "friends list" who like everything you do such as the needy little mutually sycophantic, groupthink bastards they are.

Without a catalyst, an antagonist, something to poke things into motion, there is only stagnation. Just saying things you think everyone is going to like is amazingly boring.

My god this year is awesome. Not only we get Ultron and Mad Max and will get Star Wars 7 later on, we get a new season of motherfucking Strike Back.

Well I've been putting it off for a while now because season 4 (Cinemax S3) was so bad I had very low expectations of this last season.

Thankfully it seems they fired the shitty writers and got some new ones in because after binge watching 5 episodes I can honestly say I'm hooked again.

Sure there's a few dumb things here and there but the cheesy dialogue is gone, this was one of my biggest gripes with the previous season, the banter between the two just seemed so forced, it seems natural again now. While the action sequences in S5 are at times big with a lot of explosions and shooting, it doesn't feel like the over the top action from S4.

Also gone is the gratuitous nudity appearing in almost every episode of the past 3 seasons in the form of a sex scene, a shower scene or just some female randomly throwing themselves at Scott for no reason. In fact I think it was 5 episodes before you even see a tit and as much as I was always a proponent of the nudity and sex, I don't mind that it's gone.

Here's hoping the next 5 episodes don't disappoint.
