    Joker

    I'm going to have to apply my ignorant foreigner disclaimer here, because I know little about the social services in the States. But: The thing about all these 'failed by the system' movies that concerns me is the potential for vulnerable people to relate to them and so not seek what limited...

    Last Film You've Seen

    Resident Evil: Vendetta. Not quite as good as the previous two, the animation looks off somehow, but one thing I love about this universe is how the death always has weight. Constantly being the sole survivors is really grinding down the leads.

    What games are you currently playing?

    Briefly Valkyria Chronicles 4, then my ps4 decided to stop showing visuals.

    Joker

    So, as it turns out, this is neither the horrific call to arms or the greatest film ever made. It's just...fine. @Shad: There can never be enough Batman.

    Resident Evil 2 Remake

    4th Survivor Mode is hard. 12:47. RIP, thirty alternate universe Hunks that died to make this possible. Doubt I can manage Tofu. Is the Spark Shot completely worthless, or is that just me?

    Portrayal of Cloud's Mental State (and eventually Zack) in the Remake

    Is this one of those situations where we're arguing but secretly in agreement again? I'm not waving a flag for Imperial Japan here or trying to discredit any particular viewpoint. I just happened to do some reading on the victims of Nagisaki lately, and as you might expect, it's too complicated...

    Vincent's Left Hand

    Heh. I considered casting 'Summon Shademp' instead of asking, but cosmic forces drew you near anyway.

    Vincent's Left Hand

    Eh, Lucrecia's recovery is consistent with what Jenova does to Cloud. Short sharp attacks, recovery, gradually growing in intensity and duration. Geostigma and Degradation work similarly.( you grow a retractable wing, but stay functional for a long time.) I figured the costume was Hojo, and...

    Portrayal of Cloud's Mental State (and eventually Zack) in the Remake

    It's also A Thing that the conduct of the Japanese army has been sometimes downplayed or glossed over in their histories to a controversial degree. Some of that shame was 'we lost, we failed our Emperor', leading to mass suicides and such. Much of it at the time was for the surrender, not the...

    Hopes for the remake (story/content)

    All of these worlds tend to be filled with monster attacks that have high casualties. Makes a grim kind of sense, TBH.

    Star Wars: Episode 7, 8... and BEYOND!

    If anyone else has a physical copy of Empire, the Star Wars content is pretty light, but I recommend the John Wick article on page 111, for this quote

    Hopes for the remake (story/content)

    They'd already tripped the alarm on the train, they were known to be in the area, he wanted to meet them once captured. Rufus' first response on learning Sephy killed his Dad was to show up in person in his chopper.

    Portrayal of Cloud's Mental State (and eventually Zack) in the Remake

    I don't think we can really determine the views of a nation, race, or generation, one way or the other. It's going to vary a lot, the perspective of somebody who was in Nagisaki v the perspective of someone in Nanking, for instance. Or both, or neither. But we definitely can't say 'You are...
