    • Why Blade Runner bombed at the box office

      1 week ago

      ragusa33 Goose Master

      Here's the thing about general audiences-- a good chunk of them are clueless idiots with little to no understanding of what a true cinematic masterpiece looks like. This is the same audience that pays good money to watch total garbage, such as Michael Bay's diarrhea that is the Transformers movies.


      For me, this is extremely disheartening as it means there's a good chance that there won't be another Blade Runner movie, which you can argue Blade Runner 2049 seems to be potentially setting up for. Masterpieces such as this gem don't come up often, and it's a shame when they don't get the recognition they so greatly deserve, because it doesn't have enough loud, pointless action sequences in them. It's why Hollywood is the way it is.


      Just my 2 cents as a fan & student of the cinematic arts.

    • Blade Runner 2049

      Blade Runner certainly didn't need a sequel. Some people feared it might rob the original film of it's mystery & mystique. But that isn't the case with Blade Runner 2049. In fact, this film may very well be one of the best sequels of all-time!


      The spirit of the original 1982 sci-fi masterpiece lives on in this visually stunning sequel, while also expanding the dystopian world of Blade Runner, and the lure that surrounds it. The entire cast is terrific, and director Denis Villeneuve fills Ridley Scott's (who served as the film's producer & consultant) shoes almost perfectly. One thing I kept telling everybody about this film for months is that it had the perfect cast & crew (if Roger Deakin doesn't FINALLY win an Oscar for his gorgeous cinematography in this movie, it will be an absolute crime), and it really shows in the final product.


      The original Blade Runner is my all-time favorite film, and this sequel does more than just deliver. While the original is still the best, 2049 certainly gives it a run for its money. Definitely one of the best movies of 2017 & a must-see for any hardcore movie-lover or sci-fi fan!

    • Ever want a Blade Runner Anime?

      3 weeks ago

      If so, then you're in luck! Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Wantanabe has joined forces with Denis Villeneuve to create a anime short film called Blade Runner: Blackout 2022. The film takes place 3 years after the original Blade Runner film, and sets up the series of events that ultimately lead up to the new sequel, Blade Runner: 2049.


      It is absolutely stunning, leaving you wanting an entire Blade Runner anime series! There's also more than a few Easter Eggs in there for anyone who knows the original movie. I highly recommend it to any anime or sci-fi fans!


      &t=1s


      On a separate note, early reviews of the new movie are coming in, and they are overwhelmingly positive, some even going as far as saying it's better than the first film. Now I don't know about that, but it's an encouraging sign nonetheless. Can't wait to see it!

    • Can we just call Trump a racist already?

      3 weeks ago

      ragusa33 Goose Master

      Let's break down all the things he's done:


      1) Revoked an imaginary invite to Stephen Curry, star player of the NBA champion Warriors.


      2) Belittled Colin Kaepernick, and dozens of other African-American athletes for taking a knee during the national anthem.


      3) Defended the white supremacists & Neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, saying that there were some "very fine people" among them.


      4) Pardoned Joe Arpaio, a man guilty of committing racial profiling & police brutality.


      And this is just recent stuff from the last 2-3 months! It's been well-documented of how he has mistreated people of color & minority in the past. It's time to stop tip-toeing around the obvious: the guy is a flat-out racist piece of shit, who is fanning the flames of hatred & division in this country. It's unacceptable, and it has to end. FUCKING PERIOD.

    • Trump is absolutely a racist

      ragusa33 Goose Master

      I'm 110% certain if this now. He finally showed the world his true colors, and they are just as repulsive as we all thought. 


      Enough is fucking enough. He needs to go now. 


      Not in the 2020 election. 


      Not in 6 more months.


      FUCKING NOW.

      Counter-protesting Nazism & White supremacy is not an act of hatred. If you can't understand that, then you don't deserve to call yourself our President.

    • The entire world is unraveling

      2 months ago

      ragusa33 Goose Master

      Let's break down the last 6 months since that THING took over the White House:


      - We learned that Russia hacked the US Election in favor of Trump, in order to undermine public faith in our democracy. It worked all too well. 


      - Donald Trump Jr., Jared Kushner & Paul Manafort attempted to collude with Russia, in exchange for dirt on Hillary Clinton.


      - Robert Mueller is now investigating Trump's ties to Russia.


      -The GOP is relentlessly trying to gut Obamacare and strip 24 million people of their health insurance.


      - Trump successfully undermined America's role as Leader of the Free World by weakening NATO, and pulling the US out of the critically important Paris Climate Agreement.


      - Trump declared war on free press, science & voting rights.


      - Trump banned all transgenders from serving in the military.


      - Violence & chaos have erupted in the streets of America. Charlottesville is just the latest example of how Trump has further divided this country, emboldening the alt-right & white nationalists to come out of their holes and spew their hatred, in an attempt to "take back their country."


      - Trump has flooded the swamp with oil tycoons, Goldman Sachs employees & corporate shills. Trump is turning out to be even more crooked than "Crooked" Hillary.


      - Trump is on pace to drop more bombs on the Middle-East in the span of 6 months than Obama did at any point in his presidency. Civilian casualties have risen, but Trump couldn't care less about them.


      To top it all off, we now stand on the brink of total nuclear war with North Korea. Things have never looked shittier, friends. 

    • ARGH!!! Another issue with the website!

      Some of you may have seen some of the concept art for this little project I'm working on. I've been doing a lot of that lately, and I REALLY want to share with you guys. Problem is, the fucking website won't let me upload them. I don't know exactly when this problem started, but every time I try, it just says: "Our CDN was unable to reach our servers." 


      Has anyone else been experiencing this problem?

      Jack's got a boring ol' Shure SM57, looks like. You can probably find one for about $100, and they're as tough as a hammer.
      The rest look like they might be Audio-Technica AT2020s. About $120 on Amazon. Great all-purpose mics for a budget studio.

      This message is going out to several people:

      I went against my usual reflexes and added you as a random friend. This means that most likely you will be one of the first ones dropped from my friends' list if you do not make any attempts to connect.

      My suggestion is to put me on watch so that you can start commenting on my journals/images and I do check my mod history and will take mod points into account because sometimes people are just too busy to comment.

      I plan on trimming my list in another month or two. Just a heads up!
