1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    The Final Cut of Blade Runner is my favourite film ever. Rumors are a new one wouldn't be a remake but more of a Prometheus-like existing-in-the-same-universe spinoff/prequel/sequel.

    It now appears that the much talked about Blade Runner remake will be directed by Tony Scott. The younger Scott is also set to direct a remake of The Wild Bunch and Top Gun 2 later this year.]

    I can't wait for Prometheus. I think the last sci-fi films I enjoyed were Sunshine and Moon...

    Sunshine is solid. I love Michelle Yeoh; and isn't it what put Mark Strong on the map?

    Are we willing to count Attack The Block as sci-fi? :D

    If you run out of movies watch Peep Show. I hate British people and its still hilarious. (5?)

    Watch Very Bad Things. I love it.

    Also, I don't think it's on instant any more, but see Wong Kar Wai's Fallen Angels. I still have yet to watch the rest of his stuff but I'm lazy and don't like reading subtitles but Fallen Angels is worth it. So awesome.

    I forgot I did watch Chungking Express. Wasn't as memorable for me I suppose

    I don't know if it's about not understanding. I think Hemingway is called sexist because the women in his stories are basically there to destroy men in one way or another. He doesn't seem to conceive of any other role for them (Hemingway had all sorts of fascinating psychosexual stuff going on in his work. Ever read The Garden of Eden? Read The Sun Also Rises and then that and you'll see what I mean). And with McCarthy, it seems that women are just irrelevant as far as he's concerned. He doesn't even care to try to understand them. Besides, there are male writers who write great female characters. Look at Henry James, Flaubert, Tolstoy, Chekhov.


    What? Did he really? Haha. Well, I think he's a smart guy, but I definitely don't share his taste. He said The Descendents was basically perfect; it was soooo mediocre (like all Alexander Payne except Election).

    I really wanted to like Another Earth, but most of its running time was wasted on implausible relationship developments instead of anything interesting.

    I loved the very ending -- that's precisely the sort of poetry that was missing from the rest of it -- but overall I consider it a misfire.
