Maybe we like different things, but Raimi-man is trash in my book.

I actually have upgraded my monitors recently too  :lol.

1080p/240Hz Alienware AW2521HF
1440p/165Hz Dell S2721DGF (also bought on black friday)

Wanted to have a high refresh 1080p screen for FPS gayming, and the 1440p will get to stretch its legs with everything else (once I can get a new GPU).
The Alienware is my primary for now because as you mention the 1060 only really has the grunt for 1080p.

I watched them a couple of years ago, they're still the best superhero movies around, this side of Burton's Batman.

They have great action, humor and personality.
The fuck is "dated" about them? Even the cgi effects hold up well enough, considering they're 20 years old (Star Wars prequels aged worse than them for example).
And they tap into that "childish" quality of superheroes, better than any other attempt that came after.
3 is messy for the reasons detailed extensively (Sony wanting to force Venom in) and arguable unneeded (since 2 concluded everything well) but it still has memorable scenes in it.

Unless you hate Raimi's sense of humor, i can't understand how you could prefer that bland-fest that Sony produced just so they wouldn't lose the rights.

I liked Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and it's critique of what it would be like if there was wizards and stuff like that.

Not gonna lie, having one of my biggest right-wing, pro-Trump, QAnon supporting co-workers come into the break room one day incoherently name-dropping random terms from 1984, the work of a lifelong avowed socialist, in order to try and denigrate "liberal cancel culture" was pretty funny...

Honestly, this just makes me feel I really need to do a reread. I didn't understand fascism before as I do now. This will be one of the rare times that a reread will truly be a new experience for me.

You know.. I've been reading 1984 for the first time. And the whole experience is so god damn painful because I fully really how insane the republican party is and how much they completely don't understand this book and ignorantly follow all the "evil" parts of it and shamelessly pretend they are following the good parts of it and fighting tyranny.
1984 is not about right-wing politics, American politics or fascism.

It's a critique of social justice.

1984 will always be relevant because it is a critique of extremist political viewpoints...

I dare you to go watch Raimi's trilogy and not feel the same way.
