Films so good they’re bad?

If you’re someone that loves to talk about your favorite films… praising them for elements you like, while at the same time absolutely fucking slaughtering it?

This actually could be a reason why.

The reason why there are boom mics allowed in final edits, everything that reminds us a movie is indeed a movie. A piece of entertainment.

Here’s a video.

A friend of mine also said it’s likely the reason behind CinemaSins.

If I like a film I can talk about it for hours, the good, the bad, the idiotic.
If I don’t like a film, I’ll write it off. I’ll talk about it, then simply forget it.
Films that grab my passion, they’re the keepers.

It’s like with Pacific Rim… For example I get annoyed with the blink and you miss the exposition that explains EVERYTHING that people bitch about – the relevance of the drift etc… BECAUSE people miss it and are too stupid to figure out the reasons behind it work in universe.

However, quite simply there’s too much Artistic License with physics. — The weight of a Jager compared to the machines that carry them from A to B. You’d need a motherfucking SWARM of them, not just the awesome looking two or so.

Or hell, the freighter being used as a sword, that damn thing would snap! But, who gives a shit as it’s an awesome moment, right?

Screen junkies say it all

While CinemaSins do their thing to it –

And Hishe-

I mean, Hishe, well, that solution wouldn’t actually work. I mean, hivemind n all that. But it’s still fun to see someone go HEY why didn’t that get done xD

I can’t honestly think of any films off the top of my head that I thought were done to a point of perfection. I can just think of the films I love and the many flaws they tend to have.

But it does kinda explain the issues with the Oscars vs the Everyman. Why people hate the mainstream favorites. The discrepancies between critic and audience scores.

Well done Nostalgia Critic crew, you’ve actually managed to explain more elloquently why people like myself get passionate and dump on movies they have just seen – Because we like them.

I mean come on, in one of the Resident Evil films it’s like… HOW IN THE HELL DID SHE SURVIVE THAT! Because, you know, you just created a motherfucking plot hole the size of the sun between films damnit! (I’ll not elaborate, I still think they’re good films, anyone that watches will likely get the exact point I mean [damn Wesker])


Pacific Rim Cherno Alpha Rant. (Swearing Included)

Ok, according to a friend of mine (and fellow Pacific Rim fan…) many of the ‘official sources’ for Pacific Rim can’t seem to agree which of Aleksis and Sasha Kaidonovsky are the husband and wife… I mean… REALLY!?

Wikipedia implies that Sasha is played by the male actor and Aleksis by the female, when IMDB freaking lists the credits and backs this up. For some STUPID reason the Wikia has it reversed. No seriously.

I know wikia’s are open source, just like wikipedia… but… COME ON PEOPLE…

One, they are most definitely husband and wife- She freaking flirts with him when they’re in the mess hall. It’s a background event but it’s clear. And I think it is also mentioned in passing as it’s usually siblings that are drift compatible.


Sasha is a RUSSIAN MALE NAME. Sasha is a diminutive for Alexander – Sandy- Sa-SHA. Like how Michael/Mikhael becomes Mi-sha. Oh and it is NOT meant to be spelled Sacha at ANY time (that’s the French spelling).

Aleksis is a RUSSIAN FEMALE NAME. Which essentially means THE SAME.

They either awesomely changed their names to both mean ‘Man’s Defender’, or their parents had awesome foresight as they are BOTH man’s defenders against the Kaiju (Don’t get me started about the inaccurate to hell Japanese).

Three. It’s in the FUCKING CREDITS.

Cherno Alpha is one of the more awesome of the Jaegers, Mark I and still capable of defending the border after SIX years of combat. I will have the prequel comic soon and that will give more back story to the pilots and surviving Jaegers and it should be awesome. It’s old and outdated yet it still packs a punch. It’s just a shame that the idiot scientist drifts with that hive mind and helps the Kaiju curb stomp Crimson Typhoon and take down Cherno Alpha and it’s pilots. I mean, not only does the Jaeger get totalled… they get drowned and exploded for good measure.

I just… the stupidity of some people astounds me.

And after a wee bit of research the developers of the film are totally awesome. I mean come on, both the Russian’s names meaning man’s defender, and most people know the ‘In Soviet Russia…’ meme from a while back. To top it all off as well, radiation shielding.

The American (I’m presuming Pentecost is American) Jaegers were whipped up in 14 months and didn’t bother thinking ‘Oh shit these people are standing on nuclear reactors, we’d better make sure they don’t get irradiated’. The Russians… They DID. Cherno Alpha, Chernobyl One.
