I think the effects made it worth watching if you forget that it's the long awaited return of the most beloved franchise ever. I've never seen anything that reminded me so much of classic sci-fi art. Maybe instead iof "effects", I should praise the art direction.

I picture Lucas impulsively tacking "Episode 5" onto "Empire", at the last minute, before he had much of a script fleshed out for part 1.

I thought that 3 was okay, but none of it was necessary. Seeing the relationships and origin stories that have been evoked by 4-6, acted out illuminated nothing.

A word about the effects. Some of the CGI in 1-3 went beyond technical achievement, and evokes some of the great Sci-Fi magazine covers of the 50s. Okay, now that's out the way.

This was NOT just a case of not living up to the hype. In superhero movies, origin stories tend to be slow and stilted, and this was a three-movie origin story. The whole thing might have been made into one good movie. Of course, the whole trilogy was set in stone from the time that The Empire Strikes Back titles said "Episode V", 20 years earlier. That was where Lucas fucked himself. Making a prequel trilogy that sets up another trilogy and doesn't drag has got to be close to impossible. So we get a lot of pointless shit with 8 year old Annikan.

It wasn't that bad, but for the hardcore fans, it must have been devastating.

>>Right here on supposedly one of the saner corners of the web, over half the pro-Anita replies are accusing every critic of being lower than pus tea party hate group fedora virgins (an odd insult to use on behalf of a message that women aren't prizes to prove a man's worth)
who need to eat bags of fileted gamer dicks before public execution.

No, we're accusing them of being spoiled, fussy, entitled manbabies who need to grow the fuck up. Nominal, are you so willfully obtuse that you don't see the double standard you apply to this? You're still butthurt over my eat a bag of dicks comment from a week ago, but threats against Anita are really being overstated.

>>She even cherry picks criticism against her. Checking out her official twitter page, roughly half of the negative tweets she gets amount to "People don't hate you because they're misogynist, they hate you because you're dishonest." A third of it amounts to "god you're dumb" or "shut up". Five percent is how she needs a good dicking. Less than that and you finally get to the lazy "get raped and die" comments which I guess she's counting as credible death threats, but I see that posted here at least half a dozen times every time a FOX news pundit says something off putting so I don't see how that's different.

>>Seriously go through all the FOX news clips here and count the number of gang rape wishes on Megyn Kelly and Ann Coulter. You can pass it off as generic internet hate trolling (which I would totally buy), but why does it suddenly become serious business when it happens to some feminist? An antagonizing feminist who uses the exact same misinformation punditry tactics as FOX news.

If you got 5 per cent of the abuse Anita's gotten, you would never stop crying like a fussy baby.

And the best, too. Like the internet, I guess.

I may have mentioned that my son is a gamer. Besides being transgendered, he's been in a wheelchair most of his life, but in WOW, he's a goddamn monkey.

>> Just because Zoe Quinn receives harassment from a vocal minority of gamers doesn't mean that everyone concerned about allegations of bribery, theft, fraud, and fucking racketeering is a misogynist.

I'm aware of that. There are actually quite a few well-meaning idiots. I've chatted with them.

I'm aware that there have been rape threats at POE, and not just toward women on Fox news. There have been rape threats directed toward Boxxy, for example. I've occasionally commented about this, and I don't like it. So I guess this is sort of exactly the same thing, except that it's been going on in a thousand forums, every day, and some of the threats were sent directly to the targets, and made of pointing of letting the target know that the sender knew the names of her family members, and there were also the bomb threat, and the calls to zoe quinn's father saying "your daughter is a whore", and maybe 1000 angry you tube videos, and the evidence of an organized attempt to spread around hurtful gossip about someone. So I guess you're right, it's exactly the same.

Baleen was pretty articulate, but what he's said has been said literally hundreds and hundreds of times over the past couple of years. Ditto with the tweets. And I guess you missed that I addressed it.

My biggest problem with the critics isn't the threats, it's the primal compulsive need to prove every word of her mouth to be dishonest, because simply disagreeing with her validates her right to an opinion. They talk about all the kickstarter money she got, as if it was a plot, ignoring the fact that she only asked for 6 thousand. "She never told us what she did with money" they say, but they're not the ones who gave her the money. She has the contact information for the donors, maybe she told THEM. She's not accountable to you, bro.

So they find an old lecture and blast it all over youtube because they think it proves something. It doesn't. The second it came out that she'd left her home because of threats, they were coming up with idiotic theories about how she'd faked the tweets. Literally, the next second, you can see it all over the internet. And then, the idiotic fake evidence.

There are answers to all of it. But bringing that up again and again does nothing. When the violent messages began months before the first video, that's pretty good reason to suspect confirmation bias.

Nominal, it makes me a little sad to think of you going through comments searching for rape threats that you think will give you some validation that you're missing. It's okay, man. Just relax.

They're just youtube videos. Extremely BORING youtube videos. I can barely stand to watch them. I don't think it's the vicious attack you think it is, but if it was, that wouldn't really matter, either. She doesn't want to take your games away, and couldn't if she did. If you want to prove that gamers aren't dicks, you don't need to gather evidence in comments sections. Just don't be a dick.

Nobody's trying to take your games away, and if they were, I would be defending your games. Somebody IS trying to take away EVERYBODY'S right to peacefully express an unpopular opinion on the internet without being harassed. That's something worth dying for.

I was actually going to end this post with a death threat, just for fun. To make a point. But there are no innocent death threats.

If you haven't read this. I urge it. Feminist criticism seems to be all about examining problematic aspects out of context, because if you condemn everything with sexist overtones in literature and art, what does that leave you? Feminist criticisim seems to be all about a reengineered relationship with culture, so that we can live in the world, and consume the images without being consumed by them.

There are reasons for the violent reaction other than stupidity or misogyny. People who are used to Cable News and internet rants are going to misinterpret Feminist frequency. I'd be more inclined to blame Anita for not adequately explaining this, if the violent reaction hadn't begin several months before the first video.

The hitman scene comes up again and again. One of these days I may go back and look at that, but i have no opinion. Some people think it's defensible, i'm not sure.

My point is that her message isn't that gaming is bad, gamers are bad, or even that particular games are bad. She's examining the tropes, people see the horrible images and think thats supposed to stand for the whole game.

>>"This series will include critical analysis of many beloved games and characters, but remember that it is both possible (and even necessary) to simultaneously enjoy media while also being critical of its more problematic or pernicious aspects."

You may not agree, and i may not agree, but there are a whole lot of things that people think she's saying that she's not saying, or at least I've never seen a real quote. Never seen her directly imply that games cause violence, or that people shouldn't enjoy games, and I've never seen her advocate censorship, or hate or anger against gamers, which is what nominal seems to think. People spend hours raging against the imaginary Anita Sarkeesian in their heads.

WAIT NO NO NO that's not necessarily true. There are better ways of understanding these things than big concepts like stupidity and misogyny. It's easy to forget that. They're not stupid, and they're not cartoons.

Games really have been under attack before. They've been telling themselves scary campfire stories about feminists for years, because hucksters like thunderf00t and The Amazing Atheist make money cranking out clickbait. And the internet isn't used to this kind of nuanced criticism. And like I said, it's about adolescent identification. I'm not going to tell you the embarrassing shit i was into when I was 19.

1. It's true.
2. It's a big secret
3. She's about to let the cat out of the bag.

>>Anita did scam the fuck out of lots of people more than once. Anyone still saying she didn't is either just choosing to stick their head in the sand and ignore the evidence, is a retarded white knight, or is a liar helping her further her career as a scam artist.

Well, you make a persuasive argument, but I prefer to think of myself as a simpering momma's boy who hates himself.

When feminist literary critics discuss sexist tropes in literature, including works by authors they openly admire, no one accuses them of attacking books, or people who read books.

When Anita Sarkeesian claims to love games, I believe her, not only because the evidence against is inconclusive, but because I've never heard of a film critic who hated movies, or a literature critic who hated books.

>>Once you've painted a group negatively with gross misinformation, it's easy to cherry pick only the most hateful replies in order to feign shock and claim the problem is worst than you thought. It's a routine done over and over and over again by the Right and it's sad to the progressive's base adopting it.

See, now you're playing the victim, persecuted by academic criticism-- and how much cherry picking do you think it takes to get to the really hateful responses?

Your assumption is that criticism of a trope extends to the work as a whole, and by extension to the audience. That's how thinks work on Fox News, it's now how cultural criticism works.

Nobody hates you for liking video games. It's because you're a dick.

I don't really have much of an opinion about Anita Sarkeesian as a critic, but I'm convinced that practically everyone who's complaining misunderstands her premise, and that's easy to do, especially on the internet, where there's rarely a distinction between criticism and trashing, either in perception or reality.

She's not saying what everybody thinks she's saying. She not using sexist tropes to say that a work is sexist. She's talking about the tropes themselves.



This article is key. You don't have to agree with it, but if you don't understand AnitaSarkeesian's work on its own terms, you don't understand it, period.

>>There's a common trope of framing Sarkeesian's work as "cherry-picked", as she takes isolated examples from many games and presents them as a stream of misogyny in order to create the illusion that all of these games are entirely misogynist, the entire way through. That's a fundamental misunderstanding of what it is Sarkeesian is doing with TvsWVG, and what cultural criticism in general is. These are tropes - they're fragments of a whole. By definition they don't make up the entirety of a work of art by themselves, but are instead definable cultural touchstones which artists, writers, developers etc, can use when creating a fictional reality.

>>In other words, Anita Sarkeesian only presents sections of games as sexist because she's only talking about the sexist bits of games, and how, of the tropes developers choose to put in their games when designing for female characters, they frequently fall back on sexist ones. Seriously, she couldn't be clearer about this - in the introduction to the very first video she says:

>>"This series will include critical analysis of many beloved games and characters, but remember that it is both possible (and even necessary) to simultaneously enjoy media while also being critical of its more problematic or pernicious aspects."
