    It wasn't so much plotholes as just personal nitpicks and things I wish had been changed:


    - I wish we saw more of the physicist's contributions. He didn't really do anything on-screen. I know they mentioned some things he did but I would have loved to see some actual physics being problem-solved
    - They skipped over how they decoded the language in detail, instead covering it in a quick montage with voiceover, so the way they figured it all out didn't really feel convincing, instead very arbitrary. Somehow they were completely fluent within a few months... considering even some old Earth languages were never able to be decoded without the Rosetta Stone it was hard to believe
    - I'm not sure what the rogue military people were thinking when the decided to blow up the ship (and how they got their hands on the explosives so easily in the first place). I know they watched that conservative guy going on about blowing the ship up on the internet but I found it hard to believe some military people - who are clearly trusted enough to even be around this thing in the first place - would decided to try blowing up a ship they already saw defied gravity and was way ahead of current technology
    - Very little political involvement; I would have imagined more orders would have been coming from the White House rather than all decisions seeming to be made by the lone military post at the ship


    I also wanted to see Manchester by the Sea and never ended up going. You're lucky to have seen it live ! I wasn't watching the Oscars this year so I found out way later. I'll check that out! Speaking of Netflix shows, I finished Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency a little while ago. It's pretty fun and quirky. Also caught up with The 100. Season 2 was the best so far but season 4 is looking pretty good too. Oh and I started watching Riverdale. And... I'm really enjoying it

    Nice!!! Have fun!

    But I couldn't wait! I needed to know!

    I thought it was a good movie but not great. It had a cool twist that really makes you think but it was a bit on the boring side, and there were a lot of things that still don't make sense to me. Still want to see Lego Batman! I've been slowly going through some of the Oscars movies with my family and we last saw Moonlight. That was really good. I can see how some people would see it as really slow or boring, and it was a slow-paced movie but at the same time it felt like everything deserved to be there.

    Yes! Flashpoint was great! I saw it 1 or 2 years ago. It had an amazing voice cast too. I think it's cool how DC used the comic version to explain the revamp/relaunch of all the superhero titles for DC with New 52. Another good DC animated movie is Batman: Under the Red Hood. Although I'm a bit biased since Jensen Ackles is one of the voices

    I'm definitely seeing the sequel! Going to try and make sure I see it while it's still in theatres too! Looking back on the movie it's all the more impressive they actually made an action flick feel fresh and original. It's pretty rare with action movies especially and I'm sure they carried on the same kind of feel in to the second. I'm really looking forward to seeing Chapter 2

    Actually saw Arrival tonight (pretty good) and before the trailers they had a mini interview with Keanu Reeves about the movie which makes me even more excited to see it!

    I must confess, I already looked up whether the dog survives or not in the second one. I couldn't help myself . Very happy with the result.


    That's pretty great! I find it hard to name since at first Litten is a cute cat and by the last evolution it's a beast! So Brock Lesnar is pretty good for the end game

    Don't sweat it, I didn't either. Only reason I knew is that I wondered if the same character was in the comics and if it was as obvious in the comics as in the show, so I looked it up! Really the only DC series I'm somewhat familiar with outside of shows and movies would be Batman. For The Flash I've really only read Flashpoint and seen him as an occasional side character, and everything else I know is from the show and what friends tell me.

    Yeah I'm looking forward to seeing Lego Batman! Hope you enjoy it when you go see it!

    John Wick was a lot of fun. Other than that early scene though. I knew the dog was going to die and that made it all the worse when I saw how and why he got the dog in the first place, and it looked like it was only a puppy . But at least I could prepare myself for the killing scene.

    John is a man of few words but I loved the little scenes like when he talks to the police that come by. Dead bodies in the background and the conversation was so mundane "Hey John" "Hey Jimmy" "How you doing?" "Good" . It was funny seeing the actress who played Jessica in Supernatural be such a baddie too. There were a lot of actors I recognized.

    Also the action felt so much more genuine than a lot of movies. Keanu obviously prepared big time for the role (I'd seen crazy videos in the past about it and it really showed in the move) but also it was cool seeing realistic gun reloading times.

    Glad to see he got another dog in the end! The dog better be alive through the next movie!


    Thanks! Midterm went really well and I've got reading break to look forward to next week. Litten's been doing fine, but fire's usually pretty strong early. Okay, not sure when I'll be able to play next but that's good to know!

    To be fair, Julian being Alchemy was taken straight out of the comics so they were being very true to the source material. Iris being in peril is pretty weak since she's obviously going to be fine in the end, but I'd still like to see how they save her.

    Welcome back! Hope things have worked out with your laptop.

    Still haven't seen John Wick but will try to do so before the second comes. It's out on the 10th here!

    Hope you had a good start to school this term! School's been alright for me, got midterms starting this week though . Ahh well, this one is only worth 10% so it's not a big deal. Wow, 10-2 is great! I've been playing Pokemon Moon finally. I picked Litten as my starter (I always go fire). Haven't run into an Alolan dugtrio yet though... looking forward to it

    Yeah I feel the same, about both points. I don't mind so much if the seasons are still short to preserve fresh ideas but I'm hoping they will at least happen every year.

    That's totally fair. I'm still enjoying the show but I know what you mean. The Flash has always been lighthearted but this season seems particularly so and you're right about it being predictable. I love Tom Felton in the show though, his character has had some great lines. I think my favourite weekly show is actually Lucifer.

    Nooo I'm sorry to hear about your laptop! I hope it's easily repairable!!! That really sucks though

    Yeah I heard about what happens to his poor dog... I think I'll take you up on your suggestion.

    I haven't seen John Wick but have heard so much about it. I saw it listed on Netflix and thought it should be my next movie. I take it you'd recommend it then? I could definitely watch it before John Wick 2...

    Ahh I remember now, I haven't played against Slaking, I was confusing him with Slowking . (I also remember tentacruel too, and that was also extremely frustrating!). Has school not started for you yet? I'm getting on Showdown now, actually, going to play around with gen 3...

    Snake was my favourite character in Smash Bros. but that's all I've played him in. I've seen clips of Metal Gear and it looks awesome.

    Yeah, definitely. Kelly didn't deserve that tirade at all.

    It was fun for me to watch Michael Kelly in something other than House of Cards while still being a similar character.

    You have a good point, the movie could have been come of as absurd but they managed to keep it from that territory really well.

    Yeah . The third season was even like 3.5 years after the second season, not including the special... maybe now that it's on Netflix it'll be sooner?


    Still haven't watched the season 2 finale, I think it's the next episode.

    For shame! Add it to your movie list!

    Pretty much anything involving Saw was really corny in the move, but yeah the tentacle scene was particularly bad.


    Heh, I remember when you used Slaking in one of our battles and I just had no answer for it!

    Yeah, that's one deterrent. For me it's the graphic scenes. Not the violent ones, I mean the other kind. It's too much for me!

    I can see that. Hah! Who knows, we'll see how we turn out

    That's fair. Most of it was pretty predictable. I can see how you found it bland, they could definitely have made it way scarier for one thing. Yeah I know of Hideo Kojima, though I don't think I've played the series he's known for (not even Metal Gear)

    That's true, I wasn't considering he was pretty young and it's easy to not know better.

    I did like when we see Yorkie in real life; I wasn't expecting them to have given her that backstory and it definitely made her an interesting character. Yeah I thought what Kelly was saying to Yorkie at the end when she got mad was all stuff that Yorkie deserved to hear. Yorkie was being really selfish (understandably, but selfish nonetheless).

    I really can't understand how I just didn't notice . Anyways, reviews:

    Men Against Fire: this was probably the weakest of the season for me. I really liked the idea of it but I felt like it went by really quickly without as much substance as I would have hoped for. I think I was just wishing for a bit more backstory about the Roaches and more discussion about the world the episode was based in because I found some of it hard to follow and hard to care about.

    Hated in the Nation: I really liked this one. It was long but I think everything deserved a place in the episode, and the twist that the real victims were everyone using the hashtag was incredible. I could kind of see it coming when we learn how the hacker's wife tried to commit suicide from the online harassment. I knew in Black Mirror fashion they would probably kill all the hashtag people off despite their efforts but it was still so well done and intense. The only thing I didn't like about it was the ending. I think I would have liked it more if the episode had ended before we see Blue tracking the hacker down and it's left that he gets away with it all. I think since they showed Blue tracking the hacker down but not much more I felt kind of unsatisfied. But the rest of the episode was great.

    My order would be:

    Hated in the Nation
    Playtest
    Shut Up and Dance
    San Junipero
    Nosedive
    Men Against Fire


    Yeah I'm getting to the end of season 2 and it's been great. Some of it has a very Fallout-esque vibe which is neat.

    Oh definitely, there was so much fan service... so much... and I totally agree about everything you said.

    Krennic was definitely, totally, 100% bad. He was an over-the-top cartoon villain done extremely poorly and never seemed to hold much power for the main antagonist.

    I forgot about how Jyn and the rebellion as you mentioned. Another thing that bugged me a lot was how they sent her on her whole mission to find out what the message was from her dad, and they emphasized how important it was to get the message, but when they finally do have the message they just argue about whether or not they should trust it... like what was the whole point if they were never going to trust the message?

    K-2SO was entertaining, but at the same time, they so obviously wrote him to be the comic relief (so you go "aww look the robot said something funny and doesn't realize it! hilarious" every time he speaks) that it felt forced, and you just knew they would try to milk his last scenes as much as possible. Make him sacrifice himself to save Jyn who he's not gotten along with for the whole movie, etc. etc. So even that rubbed me the wrong way haha. I did kinda like the blind monk and his friend, but they could have done way more with their characters (like explain why they stick together/banded together in the first place) and again they were so stuck in their flat roles it was hard to feel that much for them. And maybe I'm biased because he's Ip Man .

    I can see your point about the crawl; it doesn't bother me as much now. It's not one of the official episodic trilogies so I guess that's understandable.

    Fine... it was a good pun

    Anyways, I'm glad to see you had a lot of issues with the film... some people I've talked to also though it was pretty problematic but a lot have said they absolutely loved it and that it was everything a Star Wars prequel should have been... did I see the same movie?? A lot of critics and fans have gushed all over it!


    Darn, is it the new abilities from the Moon/Sun era? I can imagine there are some really broken combos especially with the game being so relatively new that it hasn't been quite figured out yet.

    Nice! I haven't heard of it but I have a bit of time before my regular shows come back. Meanwhile I finally started catching up on Black Mirror.

    Nosedive: I felt this one was a bit "on the nose" . From the first minute of watching I pretty much knew how the episode would progress and end; it was really predictable. Nevertheless, as you'd expect from Black Mirror episodes, it's a really interesting world to think about. I wonder if I'd try and get a "high score" or stay true to myself. I'd like to think I'd do the latter but I'm also a perfectionist and I hate getting bad marks

    Playtest: I actually really enjoyed this one. It felt the most "real" to me of all the episodes since that kind of game actually seems not far off. I agree he was a bit annoying (and it was really not the best idea for him to accept the medical procedure without knowing more about it...) but he seemed like a good guy so it was too bad he died at the end. I think they could have made it a scarier episode but the last few minutes were really intense and well done. It was easy to predict he would run into serious trouble with the game but I wasn't expecting the call from his mom to kill him in the end.

    Shut up and Dance: This one good but not my favourite. It kind of reminded me of White Bear in that at first you feel sorry for this person and then you realize what they actually did in a final twist, but I think the twist in White Bear was done better. Also like the guy in Playtest he was really not thinking when he downloaded that computer cleaner . It annoys me when a character's stupidity/ignorance puts them into a situation essential to the plot. However I did like how at the end they made it so that regardless of what they did, the hackers still released all the info.

    San Junipero: This was kind of put me off because it wasn't immediately obvious what was "different" about this world like all other episodes. You only realize half-way through or something that they're in an augmented reality (or at least, I didn't figure it out until they made it really clear...). I can appreciate how it was not the usual disturbing episode and was instead more sweet and gentle, but I think they missed out on a lot of potential by not going much into the philosophical problem of whether it's really "you" in the reality and in the end it kinda felt like a boring, predictable love story. And I didn't cry at the end .

    I didn't even realize the last 2 episodes existed . I watched those 4 on Netflix and for some reason assumed there were no more episodes. Will watch those tomorrow so I can discuss more!


    I also started binge-watching The 100. I was expecting it to be typical CW drama for teens but I was pleasantly surprised. It's a big corny at times but there are some great moments and a lot of the characters are really well developed, not pure good/pure evil.
