Q: Is "I'm no puppeteer, Kevin" a lie?

FrontEndThroughout the Devil's Advocate there are many different glimpses into John Milton's power. Despite this John tells Kevin that he's "no puppeteer", at least regarding free will. While I understand the importance of this for the ending of the movie to happen the way it does, does it not contradict...

Q: Are the supernatural events real, illusions or a state of a character's mind at the time?

FrontEndThere are a number of supernatural events that happen as the plot unfolds, all of which center around John Milton's power. Some examples of these: Mary Anne & Eddie seeing characters "morph" Mary Anne being visited and attacked by John while he is also in the courtroom (since Kevin sees him th...

@NogShine oh yeh forgot to mention that

4:33 AM
Missed rep cap by 5
@M.A.R. then you can answer so many question this new user is asking
@M.A.R. sure
@M.A.R. same feeling, it was duuuuuuuuuummmmb
@NogShine because because Disney is getting too greedy, they asked 50%
@Memor-X I doubt, they can use Tom Holand only, just without cameos of MCU characters
 
@AnkitSharma it was more a joke on how many reboots of Spiderman there has been under Sony
 
@Memor-X 4th time?
 
@NogShine should we count spider-verse too?
@Memor-X this time they should better do Miles Morales
 
@AnkitSharma if they do, keep the cute Gwen
 
@AnkitSharma Oww
@AnkitSharma Is there a spider-verse? Which is counted as Spider-verse? The one with 100s of spider men? One with Amazing spider man or one with 30 old Peter Parker?
 
4:41 AM
Or just make spider-verse sequels live action
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is a 2018 American computer-animated superhero film featuring the Marvel Comics character Miles Morales / Spider-Man, produced by Columbia Pictures and Sony Pictures Animation in association with Marvel, and distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing. It is the first animated feature film in the Spider-Man franchise, and is set in a shared multiverse called the "Spider-Verse", which has alternate universes. The film was directed by Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman from a screenplay by Phil Lord and Rothman, and a story by Lord. It stars the voices...
 
@AnkitSharma I am not willing to count that. He looks bad by his looks.
For me spider man is 1994 series.
But which is considered Spider man franchise?
 
5:10 AM
@NogShine I though we were cpunting only films
 
5:23 AM
@AnkitSharma I'm counting films only
 
> Nathan Algren (Tom Cruise) is an American who gets captured and learns about Japan and Samurai, starts acting as if he's Japanese and starting with the the final battle, starts cosplaying as one woman's dead husband

@AnkitSharma but if that's the case, no Galatus reboot
 
Tony Stark : You are my successor. Save the world.
Stan Lee : Tom Holland is the Spider Man I always imagined while writing comics.
Sony : Breaks the deal with Marvel. Puts Spider man in danger.
Tony Stark and Stan Lee from heaven : vvv
 
6:00 AM
@Memor-X what? Galactus have nothing to do with sony. It was with fox and now with disney
 
@AnkitSharma but you said marvel is doomed

What's up with this #ChidambaramMissing?
Hahaha
> चिदंबरम जब पूछते थे कि विजय माल्या कैसे भागा? नीरव मोदी कैसे भागा? मेहुल चौकसी कैसे भागा?, तो लगता था कि वो सरकार से सवाल पूछ रहे हैं. तब किसे पता था कि वो सवाल नहीं बल्कि भागने का तरीक़ा पूछ रहे हैं (When Chidambaram used to ask how Vijay Mallya ran? How did Nirav Modi run? How did Mehul Chowki run? Then he seemed to be asking questions to the government. Who knew that they were not asking questions but the way of escape)
Perfect translation from Google.

Q: Is there any good resource about reviewign actors in movies?

ksadjadThere are plenty of resources for movie reviews and many school of thoughts on this matter. But I couldn't find any useful resource that focuses exclusively on acting. Can anybody help me with with: 1- introducing resources for study (books, essays, etc.) 2- introducing good reviews on this matter.

10:39 AM
@MovieReel soembpdy is getting ready for Matrix 4
 
10:55 AM
@AnkitSharma Eh, two movies were probably enough
I haven't even seen Far From Home yet
 
Is that a reference to Wolfgang Schmitt's analysis of Spider-Man: Far from Home where he relates the movie to the Matrix trilogy? ;-)
 
@AnkitSharma Khkhkh OK that is funny
@AnkitSharma Oh but of course
@NapoleonWilson Dang, everything is a reference anymore. I can't keep up
Can't keep up with the days either. What should MOTD of today be?
 
The Last Samurai.
 
Movie (?!) of the day: Amazingly annoying Spiderman 2
@NapoleonWilson Huh, that's probably random
 
10:59 AM
Oddly enough it's anything else but that.
It was discussed in this chatroom earlier today and coincidentally is also on TV this evening.
 
K.
Movie of the day: The Last Samurai
2
@NapoleonWilson I think I also recently discussed it somewhere
Oh, Tavern
 
It's also very good anyway.
 
in Tavern on the Meta on Meta Stack Exchange Chat, yesterday, by M.A.R.
@Shog9 The Last Samurai was a bit weird, now that I think about it.
But that was mostly about CGI helicopter crashes
It was a decent movie. I was a bit of a fan before so I may be disillusioned now or however you might call it. Or perhaps I'm comparing it unfairly to the best movies possible
Either way, maybe character building could have been better
But there was already so much to go on the screen already
 
I'm sure there are also enough attack points for people closing in on the "White Saviour" aspects. But whatever.
 
Hah, no, I'm not talking about that
I've watched it so long ago so maybe that
. . . is why I can't elegantly put it into words
 
11:04 AM
Oh, I'm sure you wouldn't care. I was more talking about the cultural reappropriation crowd and their concerns.
 
I never think about that stuff unless someone brings it up. I'm a person from an Asian cultural background anyway
Anyway.
Hans Zimmer's score is freaking awesome.
As usual.
 
True.
It's sure one of his best works.
 
The Way of the Sword and A Small Measure of Peace are one my favorite songs
 
I for one am looking forward to it. I haven't seen it for some time and I'm glad I'm at home today so I can watch it.
 
Good for you
I can finally get to watch John Wick 3.
If I get the time
I'd kill for some headshots right now.
 
11:35 AM
@M.A.R. tell me how it is when you do. though I am lagging at JW1 and JW2 also,
 
@ankiiiiiii It's not going to be the artsy drama you expect. Just to-the-point, blunt, well-made action.

@M.A.R. no

@M.A.R. Just to the point, lol.

5:39 PM
Watched John Wick 3. Hmm, how can I put this. @Ankit @Anki John Wick 3 is like The Revenant but with a spy theme.
Lots of deaths. Lots and lots of death. Badass, brutal killings.
No one has a moral code.
The bald Japanese guy is a dumbass.
 
@M.A.R. not seen Revenant but watching:
 
The whole movie can be summed up in "Top 20 different ways Keanu Reeves can kill people: NOW WITH PICS". That does not mean I didn't enjoy it a lot.
 
Movie of the someday: Batman: Hush
 
@AnkitSharma Already taken. You can post it as tomorrow's MOTD.
 
@M.A.R. That was the point of that frachise if I am not wrong
@M.A.R. ok updated
 
5:42 PM
@AnkitSharma The previous two movies are top 0.5 and 5, if this was 20.
Trust me, he kills a whole f***ing city.
 
Looks like I am too near to rep cap again
 
Really enjoyable. Probably stabbing someone in the eye will be memorable. Plus the armor piercing shotgun. Those ain't spoilers 'cause he kills wherever he goes so you really don't know when those happen.
 
@AnkitSharma uff can't remove the now, miss mod powers
 
Buuut generally it didn't have any space for cool philosophical themes or much dialog.
@AnkitSharma The first one is cool because it introduces us to Keanu in a coat. The second one, now that 3 is out, feels a bit underwhelming. More kills than the first but I will only remember things from the first and the third movie.
The third one is awesome because, well, as the advertising implies, it's really about the strength of a man against an ocean.
 
hmm got it I am in
 
5:46 PM
He's also more of an Anton Chigurh in this one too.
 
@AnkitSharma watching now or watching soon?
 
@NogShine watching Batman hush, blame @M.A.R. for breaking my msg loop
 
No, blame yourself for being too slow
 
@AnkitSharma :/
Now time to unpin mosquitoes. (:
You didn't reply @M.A.R. . Do you want a new day today? ;)
 
@NogShine Yeah, um, sure. I have no idea how to parse that
@NogShine (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻
 
5:50 PM
@M.A.R. Hahaha
So, I read a new meme on FB which felt funny to me.
 
Cool, what is it.
I thought FB is just an old grumpy place anymore.
All the teens use Instagram. Or maybe that's sooo 2015. Can't keep up
 
The meme said something like "Too many mosquitoes irritating. How to get rid of these" with image. A comment said "Let them bite bro. Instead of being single forever, let those female mosquitoes bite you. Something is better than nothing"
@M.A.R. I'm afraid that may not sound funny to you.
 
Because you translated?
 
@M.A.R. No.
 
Or because the ripest time for a joke passed? Or both?
I totally get why it would be funny to some people, of course.
 
5:57 PM
Of course some pun is lost in translation.
 
Funniness is a subtle art. It's not just what it said that would be funny.
@NogShine Something that's funny to me in Turkish is probably not funny in English. It has nothing to do with mistranslation, but just 'how the language feels'.
 
Exact translation : Let it be bro. At least female mosquitoes are following us.
2
 
Heh, that is funnier
Because . . . hmm . . . shorter?
The longer something gets, the easier it is for the mind to become detached of the emotion that the thing is supposed to provoke.
 
First one was a paraphrasing and reminding. This doesn't need more explanation about the background.
 
That's why blunt responses are provoking. Y u mean bro
I've gotten that more than I care to admit, when I was arguing with someone in my typical short sentence way.
Heck, I think @Anki said it to me earlier this week
yesterday, by ankiiiiiii
chill @M.A.R. where's movie of the day?

@M.A.R. That is pinging both Ankits.
 
Only of them is at fault for that

6:09 PM
. . . ugh. For God's sake. This Spiderman crap is all over the news now. I don't care about that! Show me Trump's next farce. On second thought
@AnkitSharma Yeah that's what I said.
Why the hell are you watching a movie and chatting. That's precisely against the movie watcher spirit.
 
@NogShine ugly non-grumpy people, who neither look good nor angry enough
 
Unless everyone is so hushy at Batman: Hush that it gets boring watching a silent movie
 
@M.A.R. trump is so dumb.
 
Imagining Batman testing the automatic food machine in Modern Times
 
@M.A.R. u guys pinging and notification sound disturbing my movie and it's almost done. Hush identity also revelaed
 
6:12 PM
Well it's either the Joker or Jim Carrey in a cucumber costume.
 
@M.A.R. lol
 
@M.A.R. It can always be alfred
You forgot Alfred masterplan
 
That's not very Butlery
@AnkitSharma Not be in Dunkirk?
 
Yeah it's kinda sorta blocked
 
6:19 PM
@M.A.R. It tells Alfred hired actors to be the weird villains to keep Bruce busy so he forgets sadness of his parents death
Alfred was master planner
 
That's
hmm
How can I put it
Um
Erm
Underwhelming. Like this response.
If it's gonna take a whole bloody movie for that, he's not being a really sharp Batman.
You could of course make it teary and all. So the audience can forgive the time they put on it.
 
you wrote that just to ding people?
@AnkitSharma people can get lazy at times.
@M.A.R. just one more letter would have sorted it
 
I wanted to ping you
 
yes I just feel that shorter sentences can come across as rude
 
Ankit is always there so there's little point in pinging him
3
 
6:26 PM
@M.A.R. next time add i also
See, this sounds rude to me
 
Huh, right, OK. Dunno why that didn't occur to me.
@ankiiiiiii It's blunt, but it's not rude.
 
@M.A.R. here both could have been pinged with the same trick.
 
You just summed up the whole frigging problem on SO.
@ankiiiiiii Yeah but it felt more elegant to indicate I'm talking to two people.
 
Thanks for the quick review. I didnt like revenant tho, but would see JW123
 
Batman: Hush I will give it 7/10. Worth a watch but it could have been a matter if DCAMU has introduced Catwoman and Hush's alter ego before in some films. Rest nicely done. Animation and voice acting is good, nice twist at the end (different from comics). I will recommend it.
@M.A.R. @Jenayah @Memor-X ^^^
 
6:28 PM
It makes you lose the comfy sitting posture, and mind your next sentence. But it doesn't make it rude.
 
I barely remember names of characters,
@AnkitSharma I wish images were more elegant in here
 
@M.A.R. lol
@ankiiiiiii means?
 
@ankiiiiiii How so? If it's an image but the system doesn't recognize it as one, type a ! in the beginning of the message
 
I dont know who catwoman and hush are. you could have added their faces
 
@AnkitSharma Yeah OK. If it wasn't for a certain person gloriously spoiling the whole point of a bloody mystery.

Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans is an upcoming direct-to-video animated superhero film based on the television series Teen Titans Go!, which is adapted from the DC Comics superhero team of the same name. Warner Bros. announced that a crossover featuring the Titans from both TTG and the original 2003 version was in the works. On June 26, 2019, IGN released the exclusive official trailer on YouTube. It premiered at the San Diego Comic-Con on July 21, 2019, to be followed by a digital release on September 24, 2019 and a DVD and Blu-ray release on October 15, 2019. The events of the film take place...
WTF is this
abomination
 
. . . it's not worth the space the onebox is taking.
Definitely there will be a flat Raven vs. a curvy Raven joke.
 
@ankiiiiiii then this film is not for you. Batman Hush have almost all major batman villains in the film
 
@M.A.R. ummmm what ok don't know
 
And holy cow, I have never seen more stubborn people than the Go's directors. People don't like your bland nonsensical low humor, alright?
 
6:32 PM
@M.A.R. it took them multiple blogs and months of research.
 
@ankiiiiiii I think you're overstating what has really been done about it. Take it from an . . . erm . . . Insider of meta.SO.
 
I just see the same act repeated over and over again in new blogs that they've made SO a friendly community
 
I guess insider in the sense that I've read and nodded depressedly for the things that have been going on there.
 
so I assume that they worked hard for it.
 
@ankiiiiiii They haven't. SO wasn't being unfriendly, unwelcoming or elitist in the sense that people like to demonize.
 
6:34 PM
@M.A.R. they don't care. They promised if Teen Titan Go movie get hit they will bring back less dumb Teen titans but but they just made another Teen Titan Go ufffff grrrrrr I hate it
 
we hate it*
Let's be communist here
 
@AnkitSharma It's like Cat in the Hat TV show.
@ankiiiiiii What?
 
"I hate it"
 
@M.A.R. but but why, we fans are human we deserve better not Teen Titan poop go
 
@M.A.R. @catija is here, dont undermine their efforts ;)
 
6:36 PM
We never asked for Dr. Seuss movies either
 
And this film have connection to DCAMU too uffff
 
@ankiiiiiii I think she will agree with me for the most part. I'm not undermining anyone's efforts, because I haven't seen much being done. She's done a great job trying to mend the relationship that was heavily damaged by the events of last year.
@AnkitSharma So OK, hang on, what is that? I keep reading it as Detective Comics Atomic Mass Unit
 
just realised that the strip at the bottom of browser moves
@M.A.R. I should have joined SE earlier
Gotta go!
 
Me too. Anyway
@ankiiiiiii You should give this a read as a nice summation of where we stand. For now. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/331513/…
 
@M.A.R. DC animated movie universe. consists of 11 animated films and 1 short film taking place in the same universe and Batman Hush is last entry in it. Thye throw random characters with less backstory like they never show Wayne parents died or how superman landed, just fast forward new 52 story mixed with silver age stories :
The DC Animated Movie Universe (DCAMU) is a series of animated films set in a shared universe based on The New 52 continuity. This universe was first teased in the post-credits scene of Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, with its events continued in Justice League: War.These films are part of the DC Universe Animated Original Movies series but don't share the same continuity with films outside of sequels to Justice League: War and Son of Batman. == Films == === Justice League: War (2014) === During an investigation in Gotham City, Bruce Wayne / Batman encounters Hal Jordan / Green...
 
6:40 PM
I'm not undermining anyone's efforts, but it's obvious there has not been much progress.
 
@ankiiiiiii bye, take care
 
@AnkitSharma That could be a good thing actually
@ankiiiiiii \o
 
@M.A.R. and bad too when you make Jason Todd joke and what we see is Nightwing and Damien wayne and Jason and Tim drake never there or superman changing his gf off screen with no explanation. It's good fro people who know stuff but fro new people not at all
And then confusion of canon, they are making animated films which are either DCAU or DCAMU or neither
Like most people will not even understand
 
So Superman digs . . . Supergirl? Or someone else?
On the other hand, stricter comic adaptations are probably something I'm happy I know no part of.
 
@M.A.R. no WW and then LL
 
6:45 PM
So he, um, goes back to an ex?
 
Uh... what?
 
Who does that. Maybe only Superman I guess.
@Catija WW is probably Wonder Woman and LL is Lois Lane, but I'm no geek
 
@M.A.R. nobody does the strict adaptation. Even for Batman: The Killing Joke they need to make Batman fuck Batgirl to make 2 hours relevant but but it worked more bad
 
OK, maybe need a little bit of dialing back, @Ankit
Esp. with @Cat's menacing Uh what
 
@Catija it's about superman going back to his ex Lois lane in DCAMU
 
6:47 PM

That makes more sense.

Q: What is the significance of sex scene in Batman: The Killing Joke?

Ankit SharmaIn Batman: The Killing Joke, they showed an additional story involving Batgirl which was not even present in the original novel. This was not a bad idea as it gave more depth to Batgirl's character. But Batman and Batgirl's sex scene looks a bit weird to me. I do remember Bruce Timm hinting at a...

@M.A.R. that sex part which was not in comics ^ spoilers lot of them
 
@Catija I was not putting a mine under any Efforts. It's probably a name of a Toyota.
 
@Catija random pings are fun soemtime
 
@AnkitSharma So a scene that's just fan service gives more depth to character?
3 mins ago, by Catija
Uh... what?
 
6:49 PM
@M.A.R. Awww, I just read the second half of this. <3
 
@M.A.R. fan service which every fan hate? I always counted batgirl as a daughter of batman.
Bruce Timm is just obsessed with making out scenes of Batman and Batgirl even when batman's adopted son dick have a relation with her
First miscarriage in return of joker film and then sex in killing joke, yuuuukkkk
 
@AnkitSharma You hate fan service when you think. That's how it works. When you shut down the upper part of your body and turn on the lower part, it starts to make sense.
 
@M.A.R. lol
Maybe I am too gay for this shit
On the other side Rep cap
