I think the level of violence he has chosen to pursue is more distracting from his cause than highlighting it. How many people can grasp a deeper meaning when so many horrific images are being thrown at them in a rapid succession.


Movies can have extremely potent messages conveyed whilst holding back, being restrained. Example, I remember being shaken days after watching "Requiem For A Dream", it really stayed with me, and it made me think. It still managed to have graphic sex scenes, and it showed a degree of violence, but it did not go overboard, becoming borderline ridiculous (Death by erection in the eye), and thus managed to keep it's message highlighted, without being distracting.

Another favourite movie of mine is "Dancer in the Dark". Which manages to have no sex, and minimum violence (northing more than you would see on Law & Order or such), but still, be a voice against the way we treat immigrants, the way we treat those less advantaged than ourselves, and the death penalty.

I know I sound like every modern art hater out there, but I just think he could have been more imaginative in his writing. If I were forced to make my mind go to such a dark place, and think of the most horrible things out there, yes I could probably come up with these images. So to me it feels like a lazy metaphor, and it doesn't feel very refined.

 My 2 cents.

Y'know, Ramza. I see it now, kinda.

It's a metaphor, so it's always going to be a stretch, but it still doesn't sit totally right with me. Maybe if I saw the movie? Who knows, I'm not going to watch it, I know that much.

Have a happy birthday Starmongoose! I hope the weather here will agree with your visit. :)


Thanks, guys! :D

Me too, though I've learned never to hope for much when it comes to Scottish weather. No doubt my dad will insist on having a BBQ, whether it be sun, rain or snow.

@Mesh: I don't mean too D:, it's just a series of freaky coincidences and totally not related to the fact i've spent the last 2 weeks in your air-vent, looking at you. I ran out of food days ago, and am now just living off belly button lint but I think it's worth it.

Happy birthday! Scotland is in my top 5 of places to see. Beautiful scenery and excellent booze? Count me in.




It is lovely :)

Though I love it for the fact, no one lives there! It's Emmmpty, outside the 3 or 4 major cities that is.

D: I don't know what this thread means.

Are we just meant to say what we are doing? Or going to?

I'm flying back to Scotland to see my family for my birthday, tomorrow. Dad is picking me and the bf up at midnight in Edinburgh airport. Then Saturday is my birthday, so I will be making the rounds to see my family with my hat in my hands.

Isn't the PSP2 in the hands of developers right now?

I keep them. I like watching things pile up, books, music, games.

I like looking at a pile of something and thinking "I finished all of them".

All my arty friends try and pull the same trick, trying to make everything an allegory for some deep political message, but from what I've read of the movie, it just sounds like another shocking, squirmy, extremely violent horror flick.

But who knows, let people see whatever they want to see, eh.

Yeah, you're right, but I don't think any amount of grinding would have helped you with her. You just gotta be pretty fucking lucky half the time, keeping at least one member in zombie, so when she uses Megadeath (Or Slipknot, Cradle of Filth, whatever the spell was called) on you, you can phoenix down like crazy.
