Just realized that capcom should get ahead of any controversy and have a woman commentator ready for launch. I'm not sure who it would be though.

This is how I think Ben's story goes, Ben wanted time off to Vax his kids.
They probably said no because the request came in late whatever. They then told him to work saturday instead to make up for the time lost. He brought his kids with him to Polygon where they were according to him sexually assaulted. Probably because someone was playing the new Xenoblade or another piece of japanese art and the kids watched and a lewd comment was made either on screen or by someone playing.

While Sonic FUCK CAPITALISM Frontiers is a pretty good game it's not without issues. The framerate IRAQ WAS A MISTAKE doesn't hold up as well as we would've liked I WAS VIRTUALLY RAPED and the dynamic resolution makes the game blurry MY VISION IS 2020 I CAN SEE THE LIGHT OF KINGDOM HEARTS at times.
Further more with just about 8 hours of content ARREST BOBBY KOTTICK it's rather short for a game that relies heavily THE TV LITERALLY ABUSED MY EARS on a big open world.

Stories like this are why a lot of Black people no longer use "BIPOC" as a catch-all.

So I guess this is one of those stories where it's okay again to generalize an entire ethnicity.

By all means shit on Joker if you feel like it, I don't think the film is all that hot either. But getting incensed at the comparison is a little much, especially when you read the quote. A few years ago Foxx would have name-dropped, I dunno, Logan to make the point. OP also seem to just hate the idea of a small budget character driven film.

First of all, how do you even know if itís not one of my reasons? Second, do you want me to list the reasons?

- Itís a film that glamorizes and romanticizes mental illness, with absolute zero thought about how fucked up it is to have such approach;
- Itís directed by a hack that is literal on record saying that he made Joker because ďwoke cultureĒ prevented him if working on Hangover 6;
- Itís not for nothing that the film is hold with such high regard within incel circles: the women on the film have absolute no agency and the object of Jokerís desire is depicted as an evil woman instead of showing how much of an absolute asshole Joker is;
- Itís a barely competent copy cat of Martin Scorseseís aesthetics with no substance, no understanding of the themes that the film touches and an overall itís incredibly similar to Zack Snyderís joints: aesthetic over substance, no good understanding of either the source material and much less from the Scorceseís Taxi Driver that the film tries so hard to mimick.

It has a tour de force performance by Phoenix, but Iíd argue that it was done before and done better by Ledger, and that film and trilogy does have some problematic elements, itís not nearly as bad as it is here. Itís a bad film because not only has some very problematic instances directed by an obvious idiot, but also an idiot that has no understanding or care about the themes that he tackles within the film. Phoenix making one hell of a performance canít salvage how uninspired and sadly predictable that film is.
So it's basically ResetEra :idont

I saw one guy dressed up during the BLM protests two years ago as Joker. Another guy from Philadelphia dressed up as Batman and presumably died from a heat stroke I donít know.

People donít think too deep about this stuff. See images from any alt right rally and thereís usually a hefty fella carrying a captain America shield. Somehow my little pony spoke to actual neonazi types  ???

I donít care if amber heard is a piece of shit. She probably is. But I fully believe she and depp were together at the height of his depravity and she was abused by him.

Imo there's something very wrong when companies can just ban you from paid products without any kind of accountability or any means of clearing up the situation or defending yourself. There's just something really wrong with that picture.

Guilty until proven... Guilty? The appeal process is so pathetic, I told them what happened the first time and they basically just said fuck off, no real communication regarding the ban, or acknowledgment as to what was wrong.
You chuds are really saying that someone shouldn't be automatically banned from all platforms on the internet without recourse if they're ever accused of doing something wrong on any of them? Yikes, oof, this is why Black (not BIPOC) trans women don't feel safe on ResetERA.com.

Also and most of all to expand on my thoughts beyond the OP, there is absolute no good reason to go small budget with a Spawn film or series. It obviously doesnít fit the source material.

You want to look at what Amazon Prime is doing with The Boys or how Robert Kirkman is the richest comic book creator on Earth basically because he knows how to sell his stuff - also fuck their fellow co-creators but thatís a whole another topic. You want Spawn to go big and have crazy ass effects, you donít want unexperienced Todd McFarlane having his directorial debut with Spawn. The era of Frank Millers becoming directors and making shitty cape films have come and passed, Todd and Jamie.

Look at what Kirkman did and how he got rich. And go from there. You want to sell this to Sony and they making their own Spawn universe or something. Hell, sell it to AMD or Amazon, I donít know.

I think Kirkman has actually tried to have bigger degree of control of the adaptations of his properties. I remember he being highly involved with the Invincible cartoon, which is way more faithful than ďThe BoysĒ (itself being to extreme to even have a mainstream faithful adaptation).

A counter example is Mark Millar, who doesnít give a fuck how his work is used, but most of the adaptations of his creator owned stuff have lagged behind after KickAss 2.

I never realized that Chris Pratt is on the receiving end of this keyboard smack. It makes me like this movie so much more now.

To be fair you did have a long history of sardonicism.

Motion controls are dogshit and I'll never use them or buy a game that requires them but accessibility is important and all options should be included.

Every single time... I wonder how often it has to be repeated before people realize that motion controls are not the same as gyro aiming?

Eh, regardless, I'm out. Tired of dealing with insanely dogmatic people who just come in with their free driveby takes just to stir up an argument.

First of all, how do you even know if itís not one of my reasons? Second, do you want me to list the reasons?

- Itís a film that glamorizes and romanticizes mental illness, with absolute zero thought about how fucked up it is to have such approach;
- Itís directed by a hack that is literal on record saying that he made Joker because ďwoke cultureĒ prevented him if working on Hangover 6;
- Itís not for nothing that the film is hold with such high regard within incel circles: the women on the film have absolute no agency and the object of Jokerís desire is depicted as an evil woman instead of showing how much of an absolute asshole Joker is;
- Itís a barely competent copy cat of Martin Scorseseís aesthetics with no substance, no understanding of the themes that the film touches and an overall itís incredibly similar to Zack Snyderís joints: aesthetic over substance, no good understanding of either the source material and much less from the Scorceseís Taxi Driver that the film tries so hard to mimick.

It has a tour de force performance by Phoenix, but Iíd argue that it was done before and done better by Ledger, and that film and trilogy does have some problematic elements, itís not nearly as bad as it is here. Itís a bad film because not only has some very problematic instances directed by an obvious idiot, but also an idiot that has no understanding or care about the themes that he tackles within the film. Phoenix making one hell of a performance canít salvage how uninspired and sadly predictable that film is.
Of the all the odd missing the point complaints in this the last one is maybe the oddest to me. He realizes the entire point of Joker and Snyder's DC can be boiled down to "awesome, but what if real?" The "source material" provides essentially no groundwork or guidance for this. It's hilarious that he runs to "aesthetic over substance" as his main critique when the flaws of Joker and Snyder's DC are magnified specifically because they're the opposite and everyone always wants to complain about the substance therein. Phillips and Snyder tried to make character pieces inside their comic movies, that's the entire reason someone takes you seriously when you say "not faithful to the source material and doesn't grapple with the themes in those" when pointing this out about the MCU would get you dogpiled for being too dogmatically attached to the comics. Critique Phillips and Snyder's execution all you want, but it's hilarious to try and deny what they were attempting, then attack them for failing to do something they weren't trying to do in the first place.

Especially when he then goes to praise Nolan and Ledger's Joker as "having done it before and better" when barely any of that is "faithful to the source material" and the themes are completely incoherent. (It's extra funny because Snyder's DC exists because of Nolan being asked to do what he did for Batman for Superman.)

Joker was created around 1940 when Bill Finger drew Conrad Veidt. It isnít a static thing. Itís fiction thatís constantly changing from writer to writer. Whether thatís a good thing is up to you.

One day somebody will make a true adaptation of the Superman source material.

YeahÖ maybe Nolan and Warner shouldnít have went for Snyder, specially after Watchmen. Dunno what the fuck Nolan was smoking.
