Song of the South Review
06/16/10, 12:46

Also, I liked South of the South as a kid, and don't think its necessarily inappropriate. It's better at promoting tolerance and avoiding stereotypes than many recent Disney movies. But I literally had no idea for some time that Remus was meant to be a slave, because this is a world in which slavery is either positive or not mentioned. Its a good movie on balance, but without context will further mislead children into the systematic whitewashing of history.

It didn't simply depict a slaveowner as being nice to his slaves, it showed that slaves were happy to be slaves, and that this was the natural order of things there was no reason to change. This is particularly disturbing in a Disney kids movie, as the films are known for establishing views historical figures for life in the minds of children.

Also the whole "we can't ever know whether most slaves were abused" is complete bunk. If nothing else, it sounds like the creationist defense "we can't know because we weren't there". There's more than enough evidence for a reasonable determination, its only 150 years ago. Aside from the fact that slavery is inherently abuse, there's plenty of historical evidence regarding the lynchings, forced rape, and separation of children and parents that slaves suffered. There have been thousands of exhaustive studies done and if you go to an University Library, you'll find whole wings of exhaustively researched books.

Yes, "there are very few absolutes in History". But one of the few would be that slavery was enacted through the systematic forced oppression and abuse of individuals and families, and that Song of the South depicts a wildly unrealistic situation. "Roots" and "Song of the South" are not opposite yet equally valid perspectives. One is based on a true story, the other is based on an alternate universe. About a third of slaves died during or just after their transport to America. Far less than a third lived out idyllic lives without stress or labor with bluebirds on their shoulders.

He's genuinely funny, and I'd watch that show.

Besides I'd rather five-star the positive efforts of /b/, like Scientology trolling and Keanu Reeves, than simply feeling superior by watching Chris-chan videos.

Possible answer 3 is my favorite:

Energy 'offsets' can result in matter appearing as if from nowhere
Therefore God is scientifically possible
Therefore God exists

I suppose that explanation makes sense. Patriotism existed during WWII, we lost it after so it existed only as history, and its currently back. The reason I didn't get it is because I don't logically think that the 90s were more patriotic than the 80s, 70s, etc.

"I HAVE A BROKEN TOOOOOOEEEEEEE!... nails."

Also the t-shirt, "Patriotism, it's not just history anymore" doesn't make any sense. If it means 'there was a lack of patriotism and now its back', that's undermined by the image of Iwo Jima.

Yeah, that comment made no sense to me. Objectivism is about property rights above all else, and is the literal opposite of taking people's things in the name of a greater good.
Border Patrol murders Mexican Teen

Its cause and effect only if killing someone is a logical or reasonable reaction to having rocks thrown at you. Which it isn't. I know arguing with a cop could result in harm to me, but that never justifies his beating me up.

Its like walking through an alley with money, and getting violently mugged. Your actions led to it, and it may have involved bad judgment. But there's no way that mugger should ever be allowed to use that to justify his own actions.

The fact that the cop was next to his car, wasn't in danger, and that the kid was never observed throwing rocks but only being near kids doing so, it all incidental and irrelevant compared to the fundamental injustice.

Seriously, what is the "kneejerk OMG HUMAN RIGHTS" side to this? There are mockable views like Sweden's "porn is a human right", but what is being said against an officer murdering a kid that comes across as ridiculous?

The person we trusted with power and responsibility acted way dumber than a group of teenagers, and now the rest of those people are coming to try and justify his action rather than hold him accountable. The lesson for me is that if we keep looking for reasons to excuse murder for officers, then we damn well deserve what we have coming.
Trailer for 'Gritty' New Mortal Kombat Reboot
06/08/10, 17:42

I could not stop laughing the entire time.

The "gritty" remake of characters reminds me of the velociraptor Yoshi and jumping obese black-lady Goombas. Could this be the "Super Mario Brothers Movie" of our generation?

To be fair, they know when they're being silly. Its "serious" like a Michael Bay movie. Unlike CSI: NY, which is nearly as ridiculous, but with a morbid tone.

I just looked up the song, and saw that this video was directed by Michael Bay. Yes, that Michael Bay. Its almost restrained by his standards.

Ancient civilizations did tons of cool shit they should be recognized for. Like this: http://www.world-mysteries.com/sar_lights_fd1.htm

Patting them on the head for believing in what is visibly obvious until you apply science and critical thinking (even before the Greeks, tribal groups had deduced it from basic astronomy and sea navigation) just seems condescending.
Star Wars - Han Solo gets frozen in Carbonite
06/04/10, 17:14

I've never considered myself a fan of Star Wars, and never saw what the big deal was about the original movies. But the prequels definitely had scenes that exemplified both those qualities, particularly Empire.
Deus Ex 3 - E3 2010 Trailer
06/04/10, 16:40

SquareEnix is doing the cutscenes and trailer, while Eidos is doing the game. So there's at least some hope this won't be the generic Michael Bay/Final Fantasy abortion it appears to be.

2027. That's just 17 years. Or "Jurassic Park and Bill Clinton" ago. I think they're expectations of technological development are a bit unrealistic, although not nearly as much as expecting Detroit to be hope to major corporations and/or people.

Less interesting alternative: If you meant that all his reviews are the same and boring, and therefore he is a hypocrite, than the fact that he doesn't mention those two common complaints in the course of the review undermines the premise of your criticism.

In this event, I would suggest frozen otters rather than haddocks. I'll need to do it in two days, as the otters take time to catch and freeze.
