Short one this time.
The trailer was weird. The idea seemed fun, but even the trailer seemed like it was running out of ideas. Yet, I decided to go and see it. I guess there jsut isn’t much to do in this town, so you take what you can to get out every once in a while.
Spoilers on a movie you shouldn’t care to see.
I went to see this on Friday and I still feel the need to write about it.
Once again, I’m trying to make a top 10 list while I still haven’t seen plenty of the movies I would like to see from this year.
Why do they need to be so highly obsfuscated?
For some reason, I’ve been thinking about how well people actually read subtlety.
These are two tower defense games, although they are very different. Both are pretty good, but this is about the mistakes in the game.
Aaron Forsythe, the VP of design at WotC, tweeted this out four days ago:
Over the past few years, Standard play has dried up in many stores. I have my own list of possible reasons, but I’d love to hear from you about your store community. Why has sanctioned Standard play declined relative to other formats in your store?
Having to ask is really actually kind of embarrassing… I don’t mean asking in general, but in this case. It should be pretty obvious why they have been driving people away from the format.
After having been released originally at Cannes last year, After Yang finally reached my shores (meaning my local art house theatre) yesterday. If nothing else, it made me think and that is always a good sign. Now, this isn’t really a review even if that side will seep in here and there. This is more about a different approach and expectations regarding movies.
Okay, finally a topic where I don’t have to qualify my opinions by mentioning that I am indeed a white straight cis man. Indeed, again, this is perhaps a topic I’m very much the right person to discuss. Except that I’m not American. Or Conservative. Or Christian. Sigh. Maybe one day.
Any way, woke-ism…
