A great reminder on the various dreams of the Straw Hats, and some very solid anime filler content with an ever increasing production quality - Manga reader's first impressions on the anime - Zou Saga


I occasionally see the criticism pop up that since the timeskip, many of the Straw Hats dreams have gone somewhat underdeveloped unless it is one of the ones that is constantly developed every arc (Luffy becoming Pirate King, Zoro becoming the World's Strongest Swordsman, etc.). I feel like the Zou Arc really fights back against that criticism. Even while being the least controversial post time skip arc (and an arc that was always beloved since it came out), I feel like it's still a little underappreciated how many great endgame Straw Hat moments were had in this arc in reference to the development of their dreams. I also think the uptick of the anime's quality continues to show itself more and more, with great anime filler and an even better movie in Film: Gold.

Zou Saga


I've been reading the manga weekly since Zou, but I've been trying to watch every piece of animated One Piece content before catching up to see how the anime has developed over time. My interest in how the current anime is being used and incorporating a bunch of stuff that isn't in the manga with a much higher quality level made me want to watch weekly, but I didn't want to just jump into the current anime. So I'm watching everything; movies, filler, specials, basically anything that's on MyAnimeList and that I can find online. Been an enjoyable experience, which you can read about in the previous threads:
Very quick watch for Zou, but some solid content there.
Also if anybody is curious why this is only about Zou it's because I'm using the official list from Library of Ohara based on Shueisha's official breakdown. I like this breakout more because stuff like the Reverie gets included in one big Whole Cake Island arc with the countries coming together at the beginning and meeting at the end, which makes sense to me (similar to how the in between Acts in Wano are still part of the arc). As well as other various reasons.
Also this post would have approximately 900 entries if Zou, Whole Cake, and Wano were together. Cool? Cool.

Silver Mine

Bartolomeo living the dream getting a filler arc with his idol
Apparently every filler villain in this series wants to be Akainu. This time it's smelting powers instead of heat, but with the same results. There was nothing incredibly bad in this arc, but I legit forgot plot points of it after a few episodes. Zoro brought up that he wanted to get revenge for something, and if they didn't throw in the flashback of the thing he was mad about from the first episode I would have been completely lost. And that's about the level of quality in this whole arc. Still not the worst arc cause Bartolomeo was really fun, but stuff with him was the only real saving grace imo.

Again, love the ever growing relationship between Luffy and Lil Bro Momo
I've always been a big fan of Zou. It really feels like the entire story gets expanded for what will be the final stages, and there's a lot of big reveals as far as what the hell is next to come. That's not news though, I feel like Zou has always been the least controversial New World arc and everybody agrees it's pretty good. What stuck out to me going back through this is how many different Straw Hat dreams got some big moments, which I really liked. Chopper getting to save all the minks by making medicine was a nice moment for him, and I also really enjoyed him helping patch up Zunesha (more on that in a second). And Robin's excitement when presented with the Road Poneglyph and finding out what it meant, just a really happy experience. It's the happiest I can remember her when finding a Poneglyph since she found the one in Skypiea that made her realize it's not a lost dream. And Nami asking Inuarashi about what the Log Pose is pointing to and getting that affirmation that she's leading them on the right path, super cute moment. I feel like a lot of people criticize some of the Straw Hats with this idea that their dreams aren't really talked about much since the time skip, but to me this arc was really covering a bunch of those moments for them in really satisfying ways. Yeah we don't physically see Nami draw a map or anything like that, but we do get Robin giving her readings from the Poneglyph that can lead her down that path. I just really enjoyed all the little moments leading them on their individual dreams, especially for the more abstract ones like Chopper where none of us know how he's actually going to pull it off.
I also really enjoyed the filler episode right near the end of this arc. I brought up getting to see Chopper healing Zunesha, that was mostly done in the filler episode I'm referring to. Just really good canon filler that plugged up a lot of gaps from the manga. Carrot bribing the monkey so she could sneak on the ship, the minks all helping to make bandages for Zunesha's leg, Nami getting the map for Totto Land. One of those filler episodes where if somebody didn't tell you it was filler you'd have no clue, it just fit in perfectly. I feel like most of the filler in this arc was really well fitting, other than them randomly fighting bees for half an episode one time. Like I've been saying since the end of Dressrosa, if they do more filler like this then I really don't have an issue with the page count. I think content matters more than the amount of pages covered, and this was for the most part really good content.
As far as the story itself, the setup for Wano was great. Love seeing Momo really come into his own; he's turned into a great character in Wano and it really started around this moment here when he allies with Luffy. And the Raizo is Safe moment was really good, loved the adaptation. The music in the moment sounded very Wano/Japanese themed, which fit the moment. And frankly all of the music in this arc was great. You can always tell when one of these 200+ episode animes just got a new OST, because you start hearing new music super often. But no complaints there.


One Piece: Heart of Gold

I swear this was integral to the plot. Don't fact check.
I just did not get into this one. The villain was pretty underwhelming (although I did like Zoro and Sanji's fights). And while I get it's filler so logic is somewhat out the window, the logic of this special goes super out the window. For example there's a part where Brook is needed to play the piano with very specific notes or he'll get shot with arrows. And he keeps messing up because there's a bit of the last page missing. And despite the fact that arrows pretty much do nothing to him, we instead get Robin and Chopper protecting him. Who for some reason are totally fine to use their Devil Fruits, which made me realize they're not even in Seastone cuffs but are for some reason just going along with everything. It took me until that point of the movie to even realize that. And I bring that up to talk about the next test they had, where they needed to use keys and had to find the right keyhole out of 17 (16 electrocute you, 1 doesn't). For some reason this is Nami's job, and Brook, Chopper, and Usopp have to hold the whole thing open so they don't get crushed. But if the electrocution doesn't kill you, and you're allowed to use devil fruits, why are they not using the person who can literally sprout clones and body parts? Obviously she'd still get hurt because she feels pain from the clones, but it makes way more sense than having almost half the crew crushed to death.
Again, it's a filler special episode so why am I even ranting about this. But stuff like that made me realize that the plot makes no sense and that it took me that long into the movie to realize it makes no sense. The CP0 stuff was kinda interesting albeit they make them kinda look like scrubs, the Celestial Dragon stuff was fine too. And Chopper continues his reign as the greatest plug in One Piece, because he apparently just carries around every drug necessary with zero prep time. Also whoever animated this did it with one hand down their pants when they drew the Nami and Robin stuff. So kudos to them.
Wasn't a bad special, just kinda boring.


One Piece Film: Gold

Nice to see Nami finally get to shine in a movie.
WOW. What an amazing movie. There were just so many things to love about this one. Where to start.
I'm always a fan of getting some unusual Straw Hat duos/trios. The usual groups are fun, don't get me wrong. But it's always nice to mix it up since they're such a big group. So having Franky running alone with Luffy for half the movie, I was a big fan of that. That's just not a usual pairing that happens, and the resulting dynamic from that was really cool.
I also enjoy when a movie villain doesn't feel unusually OP just for the sake of making the plot work, or like they're nerfing the main cast to make it a conflict. That's something that happens with a lot of shonen movies because they need the villain to be strong for an hour or so to make it work. When they revealed early into the movie that the gold confetti raining down actually makes it so Tesoro can control everything, I was in shock. It's a good plot device to neutralize the good guys that doesn't feel contrived, and it's also just really fucking smart. It immediately made Tesoro feel like a genuine threat.
And speaking of Tesoro, what a great villain. His backstory was crazy. The Celestial Dragon stuff is always a good way to get under the audience's skin, but the fact that he was a slave too and basically took the Sun Pirates approach of covering it? Huge surprise, not what I was expecting at all.
Also enjoyed Nami finally getting to fully participate in a movie. Her relationship with Carina was really cool, but the main thing that I liked was that she finally gets to play a big role in a movie. I wouldn't define her role in the last few movies as a damsel in distress. But it did kinda suck to see Nami taken out of the past few movies fairly early, where she doesn't get to play out a role like everybody else. Whether that's her being changed to a little kid or her getting kidnapped by Shiki in the first few minutes. This time Zoro gets to be the one separated from the crew, but you know Zoro will always get his moment eventually so it was fine. Again, just another really unique thing about this movie compared to the other ones.
This was just a really fun heist style movie, even with the typical planning montage. Very fun watch.


One Piece Film: Gold Episode 0

Speaking of animating with a hand down their pants, this was animated with the pen in their mouth. I guess these OVAs are all just going to be an excuse to show Nami and Robin half naked as many times as possible. In which case I say thank you. Also I knew Nami and Robin ran an elaborate gambling ring on the ship, I called that.
Fun short little video leading into the movie, like the Glorious Island one. We've upgraded from swimming to having the girls bouncing around playing volleyball. I look forward to the next one where they mud wrestle.

2023.05.30 02:20 captbrickmanufp My Sleep Number Is Imaginary

A quick note before reading: I am an insomniac and wanted to write a story that blended Slavic folklore, a fever dream, and crazy pot hallucinations all in one. Here is that result...
In the shady valley, where the sundials were made of shadows and doubt, and the rivers ran with the whispers of babbling dreams, there lived an insomniac named Vanya. Time held no meaning for Vanya, for he was the village watchman forever ensnared by the grip of sleeplessness. His sleep number, he would jokingly say, was imaginary.
Under the perpetually drowsy sun, he wandered through the quaint village, past the cottage where the blind witch divined secrets from her cauldron of whispers, through the field where the blacksmith shaped the iron winds into mundane realities, and into the dense woods inhabited by creatures of old lore. Each day was a delirious ballet of Vanya's continuous wakefulness and the eccentricity of his companions in the village.
One twilight hour, as the village faded into a monochrome dreamscape and Vanya's eyes began to droop, he would see Baba Yaga, her chicken-legged hut pirouetting through the mushroom-dappled forest clearing, spun by unseen threads of an ancient lullaby. A talking fox would appear, his silver fur shimmering like stardust under the moonlight, spouting intricate philosophies that made less sense than the patterns of the Milky Way. In Vanya's waking dreams, logic, like his sleep, was an elusive specter.
A nocturnal sunflower, the Zorya, would bloom, its golden petals glistening like a sun trapped in a blossom. With her soothing voice, it would spin tales of the Chernobog, the creature of darkness that lived under Vanya's bed, feeding on his absent dreams. Yet when Vanya would peer under his bed, only dust bunnies and forgotten shoelaces met his gaze.
He would walk on moonbeams, following the Stuzhka, a river made of forgotten lullabies, only to find himself at the foot of Jack's towering beanstalk, where the echoes of a dragon's snore reverberated from above. But the dragon, Vanya knew, was just an old, worn-out windmill, creaking and groaning in the distance.
Each day was a fantastical adventure, each hallucination more absurd than the next. In the cool embrace of the night, Vanya would lay under the stellar canopy, a parody of sleep that did little to quench his weary spirit. He would trace constellations in the stars, spinning tales of knights and dragons, of witches and lost children until the first rays of dawn chased the darkness away.
His hallucinations slowly dissipated with the morning light, leaving Vanya alone in his wakeful reality. He would laugh at the absurdity, lighting his morning pipe with a nod to the fading shadows. "My sleep number is imaginary," he'd chuckle as if sleep were another character in his fantastical narrative.
Despite the ethereal chaos of his existence, Vanya found solace in his fevered wakefulness. His dreams, or rather, his lack thereof, were the brushstrokes on the canvas of his life, rendering it into a masterpiece of delightful lunacy. In the Slavic folklore of his lineage, in the playful whimsy of his world, the line between the real and the imagined blurred into obscurity.
Vanya's life was an insomnia-laden fever dream, a nonsensical Disney movie drawn by a stoner's hand. It was a dreamscape of eternal wakefulness, where sleep was as imaginary as Baba Yaga and her dancing hut. Amidst the daily humdrum and the nightly hallucinations, Vanya found his peace, living his story in the crooked valley beneath the sleep-starved sky.
His erratic yet mesmerizing visions drew the villagers' attention, transforming his life into a nightly spectacle. They would gather around the bonfire, their faces bathed in its warm glow, and listen as Vanya painted vivid images of his nightly adventures with the finesse of a seasoned bard. His tales wove a spell around the village, and he was no longer just a watchman but a weaver of dreams, a creator of fantastical realms.
One day, under the watchful gaze of the sun that never slept, an outsider arrived in the crooked valley. She was an intriguing maiden named Marusya, who claimed to be a Dreamcatcher. She had hair as dark as the Chernobog's shadow and eyes that shimmered like the Stuzhka under the moonlight. She held a tapestry of woven dreams, intricate and vibrant, a cosmic map of someone's slumber.
Marusya promised to lure sleep into Vanya's wakeful nights. She seemed like a surreal apparition from his hallucinations. Vanya half-expected her to vanish in a puff of smoky dream dust. Yet, as days turned into nights, she remained, gradually becoming a part of his colorful reveries. Their shared laughter and stories filled the once-quiet nights, turning them into a nocturnal symphony.
Marusya began to spin her dream tapestry around Vanya, weaving threads of starlight, whispers of the Zorya, and melodies of lullabies. Night after night, they would sit under the celestial dome, Marusya's fingers dancing on her loom of dreams and Vanya's voice breathing life into his hallucinations. They were a peculiar duo, one coaxing dreams from the universe, the other narrating tales of whimsy and wonder.
One fateful night, under the cosmos' twinkling gaze, Vanya, amid recounting his encounter with Jack's dragon windmill, felt his eyelids grow heavy, a sensation as foreign as the idea of a silent night. He blinked at Marusya, whose gentle smile felt like a lullaby, and he slept for the first time since he could remember. His last conscious thought was that maybe, his sleep number wasn't as imaginary as he had always believed.
Vanya's slumber was a spectacle, as villagers silently gathered around, watching their watchman adrift in the sea of dreams. They marveled at Marusya's gift, the Dreamcatcher who wove sleep into their storyteller's life. It was a quiet celebration, a testament to the magic of dreams and the power of stories.
Vanya awoke to a world where the line between his visions and reality seemed even more blurred. His dreams were a continuation of his waking hallucinations. Yet, they bore an indescribable warmth, an echo of Marusya's soothing presence. He mused that his sleep number was no longer imaginary but rather a great enigma, entwined with the essence of his hallucinations, dreams, and the folkloric charm of his existence.
In the crooked valley under the watchful, sleepless sun, Vanya lived his life on the cusp of dreams and wakefulness. His tale became an anthem, a lullaby, a dream, whispered and shared, echoing across the landscape. And in his story, the village found a comforting paradox – that in a world where dreams could be caught, sleep could also be found in the realm of the imaginary.

2023.05.29 12:22 miarrial En Pologne, la découverte d’une mystérieuse cité fortifiée viking

En Pologne, la découverte d’une mystérieuse cité fortifiée viking
ENTRETIEN. Un archéologue polonais, Wojciech Filipowiak, pense avoir découvert près de Wolin, au bord de la Baltique, la mythique ville viking de Jomsborg.

Ce pourrait être le scénario d'un épisode d'Indiana Jones. Depuis près de cinq cents ans, les archéologues recherchent la cité viking de Jomsborg. Cette localité, évoquée dans la mythique saga islandaise vantant les exploits des peuples nordiques, des chercheurs nazis l'ont traquée pendant des années à Wolin, au bord de la Baltique, une ville où est mort le redouté roi Harald Gormsson (910-985), surnommé « Harald à la dent bleue ». En vain. Wojciech Filipowiak, un archéologue polonais de 37 ans, semble l'avoir finalement retrouvée non loin de cette station balnéaire. Il s'en explique au Point.
Le Point : Vous fouillez depuis 2021 la petite île de Wolin, dans le nord de la Pologne, qu'y avez-vous trouvé ?
Wojciech Filipowiak : J'ai en effet conduit, en 2021, avec le soutien de la ville et du musée d'archéologie de Wolin, une campagne de fouilles archéologiques préventives sur un site qui doit être prochainement construit. Ces fouilles ont révélé diverses sépultures et les traces calcinées de structures en bois que je pense être les traces d'un rempart incendié datant du Xe siècle. Les éléments organiques exhumés sont très détériorés du fait de l'environnement sablonneux du lieu qui se prête peu à leur conservation. Mais l'analyse au carbone 14 de ces découvertes est en cours et doit permettre une datation plus fine des ossements relevés comme des structures que je viens d'évoquer.
À LIRE AUSSI Une tablette numérique pour révolutionner l'archéologie
La zone que vous explorez a un nom particulier, « la colline des pendus ». Pourquoi ?
La butte en question abrite un cimetière depuis le VIIIe siècle. Au Moyen Âge, c'est ici qu'ont été conduites les exécutions publiques jusqu'au XVIIe siècle.
Pourquoi pensez-vous que les traces de fortin que vous avez identifiées coïncident avec la légendaire forteresse de Jomsborg ?
Parce que cet ancien rempart atteste la présence sur place d'une ville fortifiée, dotée d'un comptoir commercial, comme le montre la présence d'un embarcadère en bois témoignant de la présence d'un port sur place. Mes conclusions ne se fondent pas sur ces seuls éléments épars. La ville de Wolin et ses environs sont fouillés par les archéologues depuis 1828. Je fais, moi-même, des fouilles sur place depuis onze ans et d'importantes excavations ont été conduites par l'Institut d'archéologie et d'ethnologie polonais dans les années 1950, notamment par mon grand-père qui était lui-même archéologue. C'est sur l'ensemble de la documentation accumulée par la communauté scientifique, à la faveur de ces diverses fouilles, que je me fonde pour affirmer qu'il y a une chance pour que Jomsborg n'ait pas été fondée à Wolin comme les historiens le croyaient jusque-là, mais à côté. J'ai publié mes conclusions lors d'un colloque en fin d'année dernière. Mes homologues semblent prendre mon travail au sérieux.
À LIRE AUSSIDix découvertes archéologiques récentes qui contredisent les idées reçuesQue signifie le nom de la ville, Jomsborg ?
Le suffixe « borg » désigne dans tous les pays scandinaves les cités fortifiées. Le terme « jom » pourrait faire référence à la colline, ou plutôt aux deux collines, du lieu.
Pourquoi entend-on parfois dire que Jomsborg est la New York viking ?
Parce que c'est une image forte. Les Vikings ont créé en Grande-Bretagne, au IXe siècle, la ville de Jorvik qui est aujourd'hui connue sous le nom de York. Jomsborg était un important bastion avancé de ce peuple nordique, en Europe continentale, au Xe siècle. Ce comptoir commercial, établi par les Scandinaves, était une place d'échange de fourrures, de viande, de sel, d'ambre, mais aussi d'esclaves capturés à l'intérieur des terres. La population de Jomsborg était importante pour l'époque puisque la localité comptait autour de 6 000 habitants. Elle était aussi cosmopolite : en dehors des Vikings, des Slaves, vivaient aussi sur place des Russes et des Saxons.
Les Allemands ont fouillé la région dans les années 1930. Ils cherchaient des traces pouvant soutenir l'idéologie nazie qui prétendait que l'origine du peuple aryen était scandinave. Mais leurs attentes semblent avoir été déçues… Pourquoi ?
Les fouilles allemandes se sont concentrées sur le centre-ville de Wolin et une autre colline de l'île. Or Wolin a été fondée par des Slaves au VIIIe siècle, deux siècles avant la création de Jomsborg. Les artefacts retrouvés par les Allemands ne correspondaient pas à leurs attentes. Les poteries vikings sont moins raffinées que la céramique slave à cette époque.
Pourquoi Jomsborg est-elle mythique ?
Elle est évoquée dans la légendaire saga islandaise qui a édifié la légende de la tribu des Jomsviking au XIIe siècle. De nombreux textes l'évoquent sous des appellations diverses. Y compris en langue arabe ! Le prestige de cette forteresse a rejailli sur la ville voisine de Wolin qui a été connue, par la suite, sous le nom de Jumneta ou Vineta et qui a parfois été désignée sous le vocable étonnant d'Atlantide de la Baltique…
Pourquoi ? Parce que cette ville a mystérieusement disparu des cartes ?
La ville n'a jamais disparu. La Wolin moderne a été édifiée sur l'ancienne Vineta. Mais son déclin a été rapide. Surtout après les raids des chefs vikings Valdemar (1131-1182) et Absalon (1128-1201). Seule a disparu la forteresse de Jomsborg qui la protégeait comme Hochburh défendait Hedeby au Danemark ou Borgen protégeait Birka en Suède.
L'été dernier, un auteur américano-polonais, Marek Kryda, expliquait avoir identifié grâce à des images satellites l'emplacement de la tombe du chef viking Harald à la dent bleue. Selon lui, cette sépulture serait située dans le village de Wiejkowo, non loin de Wolin. Qu'en pensez-vous ?
Aucune sépulture n'a été retrouvée à ce stade. Nous nous trouvons en présence d'une simple hypothèse. Rien de plus. Les sources nous indiquent qu'Harald est bien mort sur place. Mais la chronique explique que son corps a été rapatrié au Danemark. Jusqu'à preuve du contraire, c'est l'unique chose que l'on sache.
Jomsborg était-elle la capitale d'Harald ?
Non. Et pour une raison simple, on ne peut pas prouver que c'est lui qui l'a fondée. Et il est inopérant de parler de capitale pour un peuple qui n'avait pas vraiment de ville-centre.
Votre découverte suscite un intérêt énorme partout dans le monde. Qu'est-ce qui, selon vous, explique l'excitation autour de vos travaux ?
Le monde viking passionne les foules depuis longtemps. Ce peuple de conquérants titille l'imagination. De nombreuses œuvres, livres, films et séries ont réactivé le mythe ces dernières années… J'espère que cet engouement ne faiblira pas. Nous avons de grandes ambitions pour Wolin. Nous aimerions lancer, l'an prochain, une nouvelle campagne de fouilles. Nous aimerions pouvoir explorer le centre-ville et continuer les excavations sur le site de « la colline des pendus. » Nous envisageons de le faire avec l'Institut d'archéologie et d'ethnologie polonaise où je travaille, sous l'égide de l'Academie des sciences. Notre projet est soutenu par Karolina Kokora, directrice du musée régional de Wolin, mais aussi par la maire de la ville, Ewa Grzybowska. J'aimerais ajouter que nous sommes très reconnaissants que l'ambassadeur du Danemark en Pologne, Ole Toft, soutienne notre projet. Nous nous réjouissons aussi de l'appui de l'université danoise Aarhus et particulièrement du professeur Søren Sindbaek.
À LIRE AUSSIMais qu'est-ce qu'ils ont tous avec les Vikings ?L'enjeu n'est pas seulement scientifique. Vous souciez-vous également du développement du tourisme ?
Effectivement. Nous voudrions pouvoir faire inscrire Wolin sur la liste des sites patrimoniaux de l'Unesco. Par ailleurs, Karolina Kokora, directrice du musée viking, qui travaille activement à nos côtés, souhaite pouvoir agrandir ses espaces afin d'exposer nos découvertes. Cette actualité va donner un lustre particulier à l'édition 2023 du festival viking qui se tiendra cet été.

2023.05.29 07:15 abcvbfgbfg The Cannes movies everyone will be talking about this year

About Dry Grasses
The Cannes Film Festival is the world’s most prestigious, and serves as a launchpad for some of the most important films of the year, from Hollywood blockbusters to masterpieces from filmmakers all over the globe. This year’s Cannes, which concluded on May 27, is no exception.

It’s impossible to see every film at Cannes, of course, but what I saw was mostly great. Here’s a list of films worth watching for, culled from the sample I saw at the festival — a feast of riches from around the world.

In a remote village in the Eastern Anatolian steppes, Samet (Deni̇z Celi̇loğlu) teaches art to schoolchildren, pursues a girlfriend and a transfer to a better locale, and is shocked to find that he and his fellow teacher Kenan (Musab Eki̇ci̇) are the target of accusations from several girls in their classes. The story unfolds over a languid but engrossing 197 minutes, with the eminent director Nuri Bilge Ceylan exploring Samet’s misery and unlikeability with a wry and even generous eye. It’s a gorgeous film, in Ceylan’s typical naturalistic style, and one that follows the novelistic impulse, complete with a self-absorbed antihero at its center.
In the very near future, climate change and environmental degradation have left the world terrified of a roving cloud of highly acidic rain. But this threat is in the background for much of Just Philippot’s thriller Acid, in which a teenager and her divorced parents find themselves thrown together in a race to survive. It’s climate-change fiction, and thus it’s bleak; this is the kind of thriller without a heartwarming moment, instead reminding us that a future in which humanity is slowly exterminated by an unfeeling outside force isn’t one given to generating heartfelt Hollywood moments of connection and solace. In Acid’s future world, you can’t hide, and you sure can’t run, either.
Anatomy of a Fall
Justine Triet’s courtroom drama stars the great Sandra Huller as a writer whose son discovers his father lying on the ground outside their chalet near Grenoble with blood seeping from a head wound. What happened here? That’s the question, and the film slowly peels apart its layers, exploring how truths and facts become fictions in the retellings, whether they’re told in a courtroom or in a novel. Nothing is as objective and straightforward as our enlightened modern legal systems like to pretend, and our cultural prejudices about gender, emotion, and memory are all part of the story we tell. Anatomy of a Fall turns that fact into a scintillating, provocative thriller.
Asteroid City
Wes Anderson’s style (recently an internet fixation) is on full display in Asteroid City, which is ostensibly a background look at the production of a play about a group of people who accidentally end up stranded in a remote desert city around 1955. In actuality, it’s a movie about grief and the ways we try to process it: through anger, through acting, through magical thinking. But it’s also a movie about space, both outer and inner, and how and why artists keep trying to explore it. Anderson isn’t for everyone — frankly, he’s not for me — but this is a movie for the Wes-heads, and Jeff Goldblum’s role alone makes it worth watching.
The Breaking Ice
The Breaking Ice sneaks up on you, a drama about three young people — a finance worker (Liu Haoran), a tour guide (Zhou Dongyu), and a local who works in his family’s restaurant (Qu Chuxiao) — who find themselves spending a weekend together in a Chinese village near the North Korean border. As they roam and see the sights, they discover they have more in common than they expected. Anthony Chen crafts a meditation on trauma and depression, the kind that comes from deferred dreams, lost love, and an evaporated passion for life. The film borders on the sentimental, but never grows too cloying, in large part due to its light touch and charming performances.
Close Your Eyes
Fifty years ago, the venerable and venerated director Victor Erice made his debut, The Spirit of the Beehive, perhaps the greatest Spanish film in history. Close Your Eyes certainly feels like his way of bidding goodbye to the medium. It’s the story of Miguel Garay (Manolo Solo), a filmmaker whose last production was abruptly halted when his friend and lead actor suddenly disappeared without a trace. Now, after years of living in a sleepy seaside village, he has set off on a quest to figure out what happened, and the result is a moving mediation on existence, memory, and cinema’s potential to preserve them both.
Club Zero
Strange things are afoot at an exclusive prep school, where a new teacher (Mia Wasikowska) has been hired to teach a course on “conscious eating” to a group of teens. But as the students fall under her sway, the “conscious” eating rapidly turns disordered and things get extremely culty. Jessica Hausner’s mannered, deadpan film buries body horror inside a satirical facade, using smart ideas about disordered eating — that it’s frequently a response to lack of control rather than about body size — to tell a story about grasping for transcendence in a frightening, confusing world. A few gross-out moments and its generally off-putting demeanor make it not for everyone, but it shouldn’t be ignored.

2023.05.28 23:32 Slate_Man Using s709 as a Monitor Lut

Looking for some advice on a viewing LUT for a reality show that will be airing on cable. We are shooting Slog3/ S.Gamut with the FX9. I’ve heard that s709 is more designed for cinema applications, but could it be used for a monitoring LUT for a show like this? Or should I stick to something more like 709 (800%) from the FS7 days.
This would only be for village, the operators will use the Gamma Assist tool. Thank you in advance for any wisdom on this subject.

2023.05.28 22:41 Dammas33 Introduced a new generation to D&D.

My granddaughter, 10, and grandson, 6, have been asking me to show them D&D ever since we went to the cinema to see the movie.
Granddaughter wanted to be a druid that could change into an owlbear. Grandson had seen one of my miniatures who has a big axe and wanted to be him. I briefly made up 2 character sheets, grabbed a load of miniatures, some dice and off went.
Long story short, I just made up rules that they could understand, they fought ghosts, (miniatures I'd grabbed,) spells were cast and weapons were swung and the ghosts defeated. But, with the ghosts also came a mist that stole all the children in the village. So next time, they are going to try and find out what happened and I'll slowly start bringing in rules as we progress.

I live in Belize/Canada/Nicaragua/USA, why are you posting on a Saturday?!
Because I'm writing this from Europe in the future where it's already Sunday. Timezones be crazy.
Why are there a bunch of non-board games in the board game list?
Because the Tabletop games category on Kickstarter includes anything remotely related to board games and sometimes things slip through my filters.
Why is this future award winning board game and literal saviour of humanity missing from your list?
Sometimes my filters get a bit overzealous and discard actually valid projects. If you feel something is missing for this reason, leave a comment and I'll add it (maybe).
Can I donate all my money to you?
Can you help me promote my game?
Please no. I make lists. Nothing more.
Your list is full of errors and now my vacuum cleaner sucks!
Indeed, this fine piece of code runs purely on meatballs and schnapps, so anything can happen. Leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.

2023.05.27 08:00 Block-Busted 'San Andreas' (2015) - This live-action film by Brad Peyton had a budget of $110 million and received 48% on RottenTomatoes with 5.2/10 average and 43/100 on Metacritic.

2023.05.27 04:50 Average_Owain Still possible to beat FE1?

I've been playing through the 30th anniversary release of FE1 recently, and I might be stuck. I'm on Chapter 22, and I have the Starsphere and the Lightsphere, but I don't have any way of reaching the northern village in a timely manner -- Michalis' forces are too plentiful before the thief ransacks the place. Without that village, I can't get Starlight, and without Starlight, I can't get Falchion -- so am I already softlocked? Is Medeus already impossible to defeat?

2023.05.26 21:14 Freezing_Moon Possible hints for films being shown on the second half of Season 5 and beyond!

As we wait for the second half of season 5 to start, I decided to gather up all the information I found so far pertaining to episodes that may be coming in the future. If anyone has any other clues or information please leave a comment. If you don't want any spoilers then don't read any further, but also keep in mind none of these are 100% certain, they are just ramblings from an obsessed mutant trying to kill time while waiting for Joe Bob to come back on air.
-Darcy tweeted that she hopes they air the Joe Bob's Drive-In Jamboree 2021 show this season. During that Jamboree they aired Night of the Demons (1988) with Linnea Quigley and Amelia Kinkade as guests. The second movie was Torso (1973). The 2022 Jamboree had Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982), Rock 'n' Roll High School (1979) and Bubba Ho-Tep (2002). Knowing that they had these movies at the Jamborees and they may end up airing these as episodes means they will probably not be showing any of these movies during the regular seasons. Link
-There was a post made earlier this year from somebody on set with the marquee displaying "SEASON OF THE WITCH". Most likely the 1973 George Romero film. I was comparing screenshots from the sets of each season and it seems to be from season 5. No other season had a blue light in the trailer window, but some of the items seem to be different (skeleton positioning, blankets behind/ to the left of Joe Bob are missing, cement blocks under tv positioning) but it could be that Yuki wasn't done setting up or could be that the set from the second half of season 5 is slightly different. Or it could be an intentional Halloween 3 joke, we don't have much info on this and the original poster seems to have deleted their tweet. Link Here is a side by side comparison with the season 5 set.
-Joe Bob had put in a request to book Village of the Giants (1965) with director Bert I. Gordon as a guest but he passed away in early March at age 100. They could still show the movie as a tribute. Link
-Anime night could be coming sooner than later. Joe Bob mentions it at the end of Stepfather episode during the mail bag. He says: "We have discussed at great length actually how we can do horror anime and when to show it and how to show it. We have our dream double feature all planned out so definitely I think you might see that sometimes soon." And then Darcy tweeted this picture earlier this month. If you read the teleprompter it mentions japanese animation. I noticed that in the picture Joe Bob is wearing the same shirt as the Stepfather / Freakmaker episode. For a second I thought maybe it was some outtake dialogue that didnt make it into the show, continuing the subject of anime from where the mail bag left off but there are enough differences to say its a different episode. Joe Bob is wearing a different bolo tie, boots and pants. Also behind him during season 4 theres a shelf on the wall with bolo ties hanging from it, while in season 5 there are bull horns at the same location, which is what is in the picture Darcy tweeted. Here is a side by side comparison of the tweeted picture vs the set from season 4.
-Joe Bob Jamboree 2023 line-up. The 2023 jamboree will be in Vegas on Oct 6th-8th. They announced that Friday they will be screening movies from the winners of the World Drive-In Movie Festival. Saturday will be the traditional live double feature in the style of “The Last Drive-In,” with celebrity guests and ongoing commentary by Joe Bob and Darcy, but in keeping with the tradition of the show, the movie titles aren’t being announced in advance. Sunday is the Sleepaway Camp 40th Birthday Party with a cast and crew reunion of the 1983 cult classic, followed by a dusk-to-dawn marathon of all four “Sleepaway Camp” movies. Link
-The Last Drive-In will be on hiatus until June 23rd, when we will roar back with one of the classics of world cinema. A classic of world cinema? Could be anything really...
I have to thank u/DwightYoakamHat for posting most of these months ago, but I figured rounding all of these up into one post would be convenient for people who are trying to guess which film they may be airing next.
See y'all on the Livethread June 23rd
The Drive-In Will Never Die

  2. Unforgettable Characters: The film boasts a cast of memorable characters who contribute to the intense atmosphere. Jong-goo, portrayed by Kwak Do-won, delivers a remarkable performance as a conflicted and desperate father.

  3. Masterful Storytelling: Na Hong-jin skillfully weaves together elements of horror, mystery, and suspense, creating a narrative that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats. The director's attention to detail and meticulous pacing add layers of tension and unease, building up to a chilling climax that will leave audiences spellbound.

  6. Thought-Provoking Ambiguity: One of the film's most intriguing aspects is its ambiguity. Na Hong-jin deliberately leaves room for interpretation, allowing viewers to grapple with multiple theories and conclusions. The narrative challenges audiences to question their own perceptions of reality, adding an intellectual layer to the horror experience.

2023.05.25 19:58 SilvoKanuni History is Littered with Good Dead Men - Barnam Pt. III

An explosion of light in the sky, stars bursting forth and down, swooping low to the ground and gliding in streaks of white and yellow and blue. Hadr sat in a small field, legs crossed and hands on his knees, his eyes closed and yet his inner eyes open. They marveled at this congruence of worlds, the sky above with the world beneath. The starts twisted and twirled on their way from the heavens, intertwining in some areas and breaking apart in others, coming to the ground where they formed a great torrent of light beaming strongly out into the west.
In the distance, people rose from the ground, molded by the coming together of clay and starlight, forms taking shape in the darkness of the night sky illuminated by the glaring brightness of the river of light. In the sky still more stars burst into existence and fell to the world. His inner eyes shifted, turning to look behind him, to the east. They saw a horse with a mother and child, trotting further and further against the current of light. They turned now back to the throng of people emerging from the ground. Fifty, sixty, a hundred? Hadr's eyes watched this group for a time, seeing them come together and apart in a great mass and throng and dance, before a beam of light burst through them and the whole group collapsed, leaving behind just a small shimmer.
Hadr awoke with a start. He had been in a trance, trying to touch the other world and see what should be done. Had he fallen asleep and dreamt, or had that truly been a vision from beyond? Sometimes there was no way to tell. He brushed off his hemp robes and rose to his feet, knees popping with each step. He looked around his chambers, hearing a faint rummaging beyond the wall where someone was looking for a jar of grain or bundle of tools. He liked living in the storehouse. He liked being the center of the faith, of healing, or the everyday lives of Ibandr. What to do, what to do, what to do. The old Sinnamit was at an impasse.
His mind went to the previous night, standing by Huttl’s home, helping his young son onto a horse. His mother Mauain hopping up just behind him. She had a bundle of food, a small knife, and some other goods tied into a small cloth of hemp wrapped around her shoulder. The boy had something similar, smaller. A few tears, kisses, and embraces later and the horse was sent off with a clap on the rear, off into the east to the Anug tribe the Sinnamit knew well. What would await them?
“We could stay in Alendr,” Mauain had mused, “only a few days from here.”
Hadr and Huttl had considered it, but Hadr said, “I am not welcome in Alendr, and I cannot guarantee safety there. Further, though, with the Albayet in the Anug, on the river Duf. They know me well,” he nodded, “I saved them many years ago from a plague, they will remember my name."
When the boy and his mother had left, Hadr and Huttl spoke for some time. Bartl, Huttl’s brother, came. Who would they go to in the night? At dawn? Where would they go, who would they confront? Would they fight? Would they kill?
At one point, Bartl asked, “Why are you not welcome in Alendr? They city is much closer, they could find someone sympathetic to them there. The Duf is so far away, so many problems from here to there. A mother and son, alone, with only a horse? Dangerous, Hadr, quite dangerous.”
The old man shrugged his shoulders. “Alendr has had many problems, far beyond the starving times. What we are seeing here? The Zivold taking everything from you all? The Zivold in Alendr did something similar, before Barnam was born.”
Huttl's eyes widended. “I’d never heard of that."
“I never spoke of it. I passed through there on my return from the Albayet in Duf. I stayed with the Albayet for five, maybe six years, and Alendr was a different city on my return. The Zivold killed the Sinnamit, claiming him to be the possession of Kloponin, a trickster within tricksters, from the Outer World to send the city into ruin. The plague had spread to Alendr somewhat at the time but not to any great extent. Still, the Zivold jumped. Within months the whole city was screaming for the Sinnamit’s head, pushing him into exile from the city and so he fled to the north, but the Zivold was not finished. He had been born with a caul and called himself worthy of being both Sinnamit and Zivold.
“He hoarded the blackshine and only days before my arrival, he brought out the missing Sinnamit, who he had captured and tortured, and killed him in what he caleld the great ‘Festival of Defending against the Rosvastatn’. A great big blackshine blade in the throat.” Huttl and Bartl stared at the old man as he spoke. “His blood still stained the steps of the storehouse when I came through. They chased me out when they found out what I was. Fervent they are there now, in their belief that their Zivold is a champion of Vastatn and all the spirits on the world, among the Paroxl even, if you can believe that. Hateful of any ‘pretenders’ such as me.” Hadr shook his head, “so no, I do not believe that city to be the safest. I have not returned since then, but I cannot believe it to be any different.”
Hadr shook his head. What to do, what to do, what to do. In the room next to him, through the wall, he heard the sound of copper on copper, the sound of someone sharpening a blade.
Up, down, up, down, up, down. The undulation of riding horseback had always annoyed Barnam. Such a process, painful at that, it was to ride a horse anywhere in haste. In leisure, sure, but when you had to get somewhere fast? The horse was a nightmare. It got the job done at the cost of sore legs, bottom, and back. At least it forced his mind into a lull, blank and unthinking. Would he hear from his father again? Up, down. What would happen to Ibandr? Up, down. Would Hadr guide them all to safety? Up, down.
He felt his mother behind him, her arms wrapped around his as the horse trotted ever forward, the river Luzum to their right. Above them clouds dotted the sky, occasionally covering the sun as a brief respite from the everpresent glare and heat.
“We must move away from the river.” She hadn’t spoke much the last few days, only when they stopped to find shelter to sleep, eat their rations, and let the horse graze and drink. Not many travelers were making the way between Ibandr and where they were going, but those that did paid them little mind. Along the Luzum they’d occasionally spot someone paddling along the river, standing in a boat filled with small jars and vessels and bundles of hemp, using a long stick to guide their way along the river. The little bits of life in the broad, flat expanse.
On their eastern way Barnam had seen a handful of buildings, empty of life and people and crops. Ruins of channels that had been built, small but enough to support a small village, had dried, as unkempt as the houses that were slowly crumbling. The first day they stopped at the first small, empty village they found. The sun beat down on them, few clouds to provide shade, no trees or rocks or other ruins to shade them on their journey. The village looked large. Not the size of Ibandr, nothing was, but still there were a great many houses and buildings. Some stood on their own, some in groups of four or five as in Ibandr. In the middle of the village a small, round building that must have worked as the great storehouse did back home. They walked through it but only found a handful of jars, mostly broken, all empty. They made some bedding here, the largest of the buildings in the small village, and slept the heat of the day away. They tied the horse with a frail hemp knot by the river and let it eat and drink as the sun made its way down to the west. Then, Barnam and his mother were off on their journey east again. If the night became too dark, without fail they’d find another empty village and rest for a time.
In the morning, they’d ride until the sun beat down on them. Find a settlement, sleep. Let the horse eat and drink, ride until the darkness made it difficult. Sleep in the open or in another settlement. Repeat.
At one point the boy asked his mother where all the people had gone. “Ibandr, when I was a girl, was not what it is now. When my mother’s mother was a girl, it was much the size of these small villages we’re staying in. Or so I’m told. When the river floods, washing away all our small crops and we turn to rely on the storehouses, people come to Ibandr. When the river dries, much as it did this past year, people come to Ibandr. When the Anug turn their horses to raid these small villages, their people flee to Ibandr. When the rains come hard from the sky, Termet angry or happy or something in between, the people come to Ibandr.
“With any hardship, Ibandr is the only city for some time with a wealth of food and horses and fish and people. The further you go, the same story it is with Alendr.” She paused, then, “or so I’m told. These years have been especially hard, and the number of people you see in our old home is much greater than I’ve ever seen in my youth. They all come from here, though,” she said, patting the walls of the home they were sitting in, "places like this."
Barnam’s mind came back to the present. Up, down. Everyone was coming to Ibandr. Up, down. Ibandr or Alendr, or some other city he’d never heard of, farther than he’d ever dreamed of. Up, down. Was anyone else leaving the city? Up, down. Was anyone else but them?
“Alendr is up ahead, we must turn now,” she repeated, and guided the horse in a slow arc away from the river.
Bartl and Huttl stood at the head of some fifty people, Hadr close behind them. The throngs of people were surrounded by others, merely onlookers. In front of them, the great storehouse of Ibandr, guarded by four men wearing only their loincloths and a cowl to guard their heads and shoulders from the sun. In their hands they each held large sickles or blades of copper. Huttl held his blackshine in his right hand, and raised it in the air as he shouted, “Zivold! Show yourself to us! To Ibandr! To the people from whom you have stolen!”
Huttl could name each one of the guards. Each one from a different family who had become loyal to the Zivold in the past years, bonded to him now by the starving times and the takeover of the storehouse. There was Gordon from Matina, Turturt from Gudin, Pol from Assath, and Xalhal from Mureb. There were certainly more families who had bound themselves to the Zivold, and from there others who bound themselves to them on the off chance they got extra grain, extra fish, extra clothing, extra anything. The Zivold's prominence ran deep in the city.
Behind Huttl the crowd threw jeers at the guardsmen, calling them cowards or brutes or beasts. No one left the storehouse. No hint of life within the storehouse at all despite Hadr having assured them people were coming and going all morning. Then, in the homes surrounding the storehouse, more men with copper scythes and sickles and blades walked out. First in the homes directly opposite of Huttl and the crowd, then the ones next to them, then the ones behind. Faces Huttl had known but also those he’d never seen before. Faces from Gudin and Matina, sure but also from families he’d considered friends, Paliatl, Hossan, Dur, Yol, Billet. So many clans and families the brothers had once approached for aid. So many clans and families who had told him no but the secret was safe with them, swearing even on blood. So many betrayals, to the brothers and to the city.
“Hadr,” Bartl called, “Hadr, make the oath.” No response except for the grumbling of the crowd, the clinking of their weapons, the prayers they said to their chosen Paroxl. “Hadr? Hadr!”
Huttl turned to see Hadr was gone, his mass of hair off in the far distance breaking away from the crowd and running back from they had come, the line of the Zivold’s guardsmen letting him pass. “Traitorous Kloponin bastard!”
Laughter from inside the storehouse. “You thought my Sinnamit would not tell me everything you blubberous fools! You thought my people would not tell me everything?” Huttl saw the Zivold make his way out of the storehouse now. He was a good deal taller than either Huttl or Bartl, and both stood a half-head higher than the rest. The Zivold wore a robe of fine material, unlike the rough hemp clothes the brothers and most others in the city wore. His was made of cotton and danced around his figure as he strode to them, flanked by his guards. “You thought wrong to steal from me. Oh you have certainly been problems for some time. But no more. Kill them. Kill the great traitors of Ibandr.” And it was only then the two brothers understood why it had taken so long to find those willing to their cause. The Zivold owned everything, so it seemed the Zivold owned everyone. Everyone who mattered, at least.
And so the fighting began.
When it was over, the streets outside the storehouse were painted in the blood of the fallen. Sixty-one dead men lay in pools of blood and gore. Eight were the Zivold’s guards and the rest those who tried to take the city back from them. One body in the throng, surrounded by four guardsmen, lay with his face in a pool of blood, right arm outstretched. At the end of it, clutched tightly in his hand, a small black rock.
Context: The attempted removal of the Zivold goes poorly for the citizens of Ibandr, and the Zivold is able to cement his hold over the city. As Barnam and his mother travel east, Barnam learns that a great many of the smaller settlements in between the bigger cities of the Luzum had been depopulated, their people migrating into the city as each crisis they face becomes one crisis too many. Alendr, one of Ibandr's neighboring cities, has also seen a similar thing happen to it, where the Zivold has assumed the title of religious figure as well as city owner (rather than head).

2023.05.25 09:41 Art_Kot How to help a suicide survivor?

Around a month ago I have visited a concert and met there someone with who we were close around 11 years ago. He looked fine, just changed his hair, smiled at people and assisted the staff to sell drinks and food. Later on, as we have chatted, he has shared that he has attempted a suicide. No details were shared, but I sort of understood that it was in the late 2021 or in 2022.
He has added that "now" he has 3 dogs which keep him from ending his life and "runs" on alco and, as he said, "drugs". He is a metal "fan" and regularly worked (and works) at the concerts and festivals. I have never seen him "totally drunken", no. Just a bit "funny" while at a festival / show (when not working there). As for the "drugs", he has mentioned, he has to take them to be able to sleep.He has also mentioned that he had (or may be still has?) a depression. So, may be there are also meds for that.
All I could figure out (with the assistance of our own friends) is that he is not together with a girl he was with a couple of the last years and that as they fell apart, he had basically stopped being in touch with people who also were in touch with her.
He has hugged me at that show when we said our good byes and it shook me down to the bone, so sudden and strangely pleasant that hug was. To be precise, I was at that show after a bad break up 2 days earlier. I felt sad and came there to hang out with friends. And among them saw him (totally unexpectedly and so). I hugged him back, took his head in my palm, pressed towards myself and I was almost crying, gulping for air and I could not imagine that this hug could have never taken it's place. I wanted to just keep holding him. And he told that it's important to enjoy the moment, because there is nothing "there", he knows it really well.
Next day after, before his departure home, we met for a coffee and we spoke of the regular things. Work, bosses, concerts, covid, dogs. We laughed and it felt all good. At one point I have felt it's okay time to ask what happened and why he has attempted to take his life.
He cut that topic off, smiling, saying he did not want to talk of and that "he knows, how to manage it".
And we continued talking about whatever shit alike there was nothing.
We stay in touch since then writing over a phone. Couple of messages each day. No romance.
At some days he seems to be positive, at some - heart breaking, saying that he lives for his dogs and runs on alco and "drugs" (I assume, it's meds).
I do not know what to do. I am trying to always keep up all the good things I know he likes (or liked when we were in touch, really closely). But speaking about travelling for example, I "hear" that he has no interest in that "anymore". On the other day he watches my travel pics and comments about the beauty of the places I've shot.
Guess, he is "fresh" enough and therefore is still being attracted to the "darkness". I just fear to do smth wrong.
I hope to read the successful stories about suicide survivors fighting their darkness, what helped you, who supported you and what was the right things in this support?
We live in the different parts of a country, so, I can not "simply" drag him out for a cinema or a coffee session. It's also is a problem, that he lives in some "village" with 50 people. Kilometers away from a big city..
