    I never was a huge fan of their music, but the Ear of the World video nearly made me wet my pants laughing so hard. Does anybody have that?

    Thanks, my brother screen-printed that.

    I went to the one in Mountain View on the 4th of July. Most of the stuff was sold out, but I made sure to get a Squishee. Here’s a pic of me in front of it.

    I can’t consider that an ending, because it’s part of the series. But the ending to #7 might just take top spot for me.

  • I think the former Minister should choose whomever he/she likes for the position. As the head of Discussion, Mr. Graff should be able to nominate Cometgreen if he wishes as the last act of his Ministerhood. If he is to leave before his term ends, he still would have some influence, because the person of his choice would be Minister.

    However, he…[Read more]

  • Toph replied to the topic Harbinger. in the forum Post and Review Films 8 years, 2 months ago

    Hmm…

    [spoiler]I didn’t really care for this film. The whole thing was build-up to something I expected to happen all along. Perhaps that’s just because I know what harbinger means. That word always triggers a memory of a Calvin and Hobbes strip where Calvin explains that comets are harbingers of doom. I pretty much expected the man to get hit…[Read more]

    Thank you, Lech. I agree that prevention is much better than cure, and a heavy dose of it seems to be the most practical method.

    “Lech’s goals” wrote: Teamwork. If people don’t work well together, then I don’t expect the project itself to come out well either.

    That sounds great on paper, but how do you go around implementing teamwork? What if one member will not, under any circumstances, work with another member, but both hold a crucial roles in the film? What if an…[Read more]

  • Perhaps the French won the 100 Years War. But they should have been victorious much quicker if they won at Agincourt, and the outnumbered English had an amazing victory. And their rally towards the end was because a 17 year old girl who was possibly schizophrenic was in charge.

    Anyway, I don’t think anyone saw brickfilms position with…[Read more]

    Thanks for the correction, brianfast. But I still maintain that the price is not that unreasonable in today’s market, especially when you add to the cost the cool factor.

    Instead of looking at recent films, people might just start looking at ‘Recent films given a high rating by Rev’ or something similar.

    I guess, but what’s wrong with that? What if you like films that were given high ratings by Rev?

    On that point, I agree with Dragoon. I tend to like A.O. Scott’s movie preferences, and I’m…[Read more]

  • After reading in Ladon’s discussion thread on ratings, I realized that counting each rater’s votes would require Z to code more, so I no longer support that option.

    Which means, that, since basically my whole logic was based on that, I’m going to re-evaluate the options and think a bit more.

    Hmm…

  • I’m saying each person’s individual ratings should be shown. That way, if my opinions don’t line up with Cometgreen because he likes The Fifth Element, something that he rates highly and no one else does I wouldn’t watch. But if my preferences are very similar to Dragoon, I would be more inclined to see a film that he gave a good rating.

    I will have to see who else is running before he receives my vote, but Mr. Frost is an excellent candidate.

  • There shouldn’t be absolute freedom in giving film ratings, because there has to be something that both the director and people viewing the films can base the ratings off of.

    Why can’t there be? Everyone will rate as they see fit, and most of the time, it will be pretty similar. But the few people that don’t rate a film in general accordance…[Read more]

  • I find this approach somewhat troubling. In the first paragraph of your outline, you say this:

    You’ve mentioned that you will update the rules page. You don’t have to write out the constitution here, but what kind of things do you see changing? (other than clarifying what behavior is acceptable and what is not)
