  1. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    Yes. Don't even bother with the series. I keep watching it because it's great to fall asleep to but episode 65 was truly amazing and definitely worth watching on its own.
  2. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    So Boruto Episode 65 that aired this week is probably one of the best in the Naruto series so do yourselves a favor and go watch it even if you're not following the show.
  3. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    Same for me with One Piece, though its length is a huge deterrent.
  4. What Anime Are You Watching Right Now?

    A little skeptical about starting with Gintama. I'm not a big fun of meta humor which I understand is a big component of the anime. Hope there's more to it.
  5. UEFA Champions League 2017/18

    Karius screwed up so bad... I can't believe what I've just watched. I feel like Real Madrid could go all night. They exhaust their adversaries, and it's not like Barça used to do where they simply overpowered their opponents, they often seem lazy and slow, which only makes it harder for the other team when they are punished with goals out of nowhere.
  6. Avengers: Infinity War

    Still deciding if I should rewatch this or watch Isle of Dogs? The later would be the logic thing to do but I had so much fun watching this movie... Edit: Glad I went with Isle of Dogs because it was pretty spectucular. Not that Avengers is bad. Far from it.
  7. Avengers: Infinity War

    I feel like a kid watching these things. You win Marvel. Take my money.
  8. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    ... and the world is shit and nothing really matters and we're all going to die.
  9. Black Panther

    I think Marvel has reached a level where they just can't make a bad movie. That comes with a price though because they're not taking risks and so the odds of them making something truly memorable are thin.
  10. Black Panther

    Far from flawless but really enjoyable.
  11. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    This topic is turning pretty bitter and cynical... Don't forget escapism is an integral part of cinema. If you can't appreciate spending 2 hours away from life immersed in a fantasy maybe you shouldn't be watching these films in the first place. The fact that you do keep watching and feel so strongly about them tells me you do enjoy the experience.
  12. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    New ground? That's exactly the point of Empire and Revenge. How is this new ground? I agree that the lightsaber fights in the prequels were dance-like but at least to me there's some enjoyment in watching those set pieces. I do prefer these to the lightsaber fights in the original trilogy which by comparison were so incredibly clumsy and ugly that it almost begs to mind if those people actually knew how to yield swords. The new lightsaber fights on the other hand are exactly what I want to see as it actually feels like they're holding something dangerous and powerful.
  13. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    This movie was basically the same as Empire and a bit of Return (MC gets Jedi training from a recluse master and then confronts the bad guy while still trying to turn him; side characters try to infiltrate the enemy ship without success; ends in a bleak yet somewhat hopeful tone). I really don't see how this "turned plot conventions on their head". Besides, because the side plots fill so much of the movie while constantly undercutting the main story (Rey + Luke + Kylo), it's pretty impossible to ignore them in the overall experience of watching the movie. The Finn + Rose plot is inexcusable in it's pointlessness (they add exactly 0 to the plot while severely damaging it). I've seen the movie twice and I think it's ok but I definitely don't agree with most of the arguments I've seen from people trying to defend it.
  14. Star Wars Episode VIII - The Last Jedi

    Agreed. John Williams really outdid himself with Duel of the Fates.
