"Star Wars is a junkyard of cinematic gimcracks not unlike the Jawas' heap of purloined, discarded, barely functioning droids" Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix
Alien "An empty-headed horror movie with nothing to recommend it" Dave Kehr, Chicago Reade
Fight Club "When you see good actors in a project like this, you wonder if they signed up as an alternative to canyoneering" Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Lord of the Rings: Return of the King "An uneven movie with yawns aplenty" David Sterritt, Christian Science Monitor

Unpopular opinion here. To be fair the LOTR review has some validity. It's cool watching big as a fan, but there is a full 40 mins during the last act where the movie keeps trying to end but just won't, makes it kind of a slog to get through, especially after almost constant action of the rest of the movie. I would say that it is actually pretty poorly paced compared to the other two LOTR movies

Eh, to be fair I could list 5 reviews famous critics were spot on as well. I don't think you can say they usually are or aren't, as we can pick out evidence to support either claim. I think we can take critics AND user scores with a grain of salt. Because lets be fair here.....user reviews are total shit too. It's either 0/10 or 10/10 by biased angry reviewers. The honest user reviews get tossed.

If you believe in the whole science in the supernatural it could be stuff like ectoplasm causing his DNA to react or mutate into a half ghost boy somehow. Or perhaps being in both the ghost zone and the real world at once(being in to different places/dimensions in the same time) due to turning on the portal while in the machine transformed his body to adapt to the change.

Are you getting your candidates mixed up? Hillary's the one who doubles back on everything she says. Hell, just last week she claimed to be against TPP when she's been for it since the beginning of her campaign. Trump backs up every claim he makes, even the fucking wall.

Never said anything about Hilary not flipflopping. Just pointing out that its hard to claim either one of them believe anything their saying. They've both been in the eye of the public so long that theyve both flip flopped on just about everything, and they're both just saying the things they need to to get elected.

It's been awhile since I compiled them, so I had to search a bit in my comments. (Note that this is copy/pasted from a different comment of mine a long time ago)

Trump: "I support the ban on assault weapons [...]"
Trump: "You have the constitutional right to keep and bear arms. You have that right and they want to take it away,"

Trump promised again to do away with gun-free zones, which include schools and military bases. [Some time later] While he decried gun-free zones as “ offering up candy to bad people” he backed away from axing all of them as he said the week prior, telling CNN they would only be eliminated “in some cases.”
----------
On March 31, Trump said the country needed to eliminate the national debt and that he could do it “fairly quickly” without raising taxes.

“I would say over a period of eight years,” he said

Three weeks later, he told Fortune “you could pay off a percentage of it” in a decade ...

Trump: “People said I want to go and buy debt and default on debt, and I mean, these people are crazy. This is the United States government,” he said on CNN on May 9.” “First of all, you never have to default because you print the money, I hate to tell you, OK?”
----------
Trump: “By self-funding my campaign, I am not controlled by my donors, special interests or lobbyists. I am only working for the people of the U.S.!”

Mr. Trump has said that he may need as much as $1.5 billion for the fall campaign, but that he will seek to raise it from donors rather than continue to self-finance.
----------
Trump: “I would bring back waterboarding, and I’d bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding”
Trump: “Frankly, when I say they’ll do as I tell them, they’ll do as I tell them,”
Trump: "I will not order military or other officials to violate those laws and will seek their advice on such matters.”
----------
Trump initially said the country should absorb Syrian refugees.

“I hate the concept of it, but on a humanitarian basis, you have to,” Trump told Bill O’Reilly on Fox News on a Tuesday night in September. “But you know, it’s living in hell in Syria. There’s no question about it. They’re living in hell, and something has to be done.”

The next day, Trump said the country couldn’t welcome refugees fleeing the Syrian civil war.
“Look, from a humanitarian standpoint, I’d love to help. But we have our own problems,” he said on Fox on Wednesday night.

Trump: “I’d close up our borders to people until we figure out what is going on,”
Trump: “I didn’t say shut it down — I said you have to be very careful, you have to be careful on who’s coming into our country,”
----------
Donald Trump called for “a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” in a statement about “preventing Muslim immigration” in December.

He later amended his stance in an interview with Fox News, saying the 5,000 Muslims serving the United States military would be exempt from the ban and allowed to return home from overseas deployments. He also suggested that current Muslim residents — like his “many Muslim friends” — would be exempt, too, and able to come and go freely.

Trump: “We have a serious problem, and it’s a temporary ban – it hasn’t been called for yet, nobody’s done it, this is just a suggestion until we find out what’s going on,”
----------

There was some other stuff, but I'm running out of characters and am a little too tired to continue googling. Hopefully it's not too poorly formatted.

Also, I tried not to include anything directly concerning defeating ISIS since it's a relatively new and complex issue. [End of copy/paste] There is likely better stuff out now, but haven't really cared or had much time to look into it recently. Though I'm not trying to get into an argument over these things.

I'm not defending the extremism though. And they're obviously not a monolith, there is demonstrable diversity of opinion within the BLM movement, the same with Islam in fact.

Are you saying they are a monolith?

People with other mental issues that don't pose a threat to anyone, are seen as victims in need of help. They're not told that there's nothing wrong with them, and that their ailment isn't something to be helped.

Hell, I'll even go as far as to compare the whole thing to pedophilia. Yup, I know it's extreme, but fuck it. Non-child-molesting pedophiles, who would never actually perform acts with children, are seen as not only people in need of help, but are villified and seen as a major problem in society. I'd argue that, since a lot of people are bothered by this mental gender culture we have, either from annoyance due to the kind of people that usually have it, or because they find it strange and don't want it around them, it's not really up to the individuals with the issues to decide whether it's a non-issue. I mean, pedophiles that don't hurt anyone don't get to decide that what they suffer from is normal, and that they can be open about it in society.

Let's be clear here, gender ROLES are abstract, but sex is biological. Masculinity and femininity are abstract concepts but males and females have concrete differences that are as plain as day. I'm not saying that gender dysphoria isn't real, because it definitely is, but the thing is there have been studies that show that gender reassignment might not even help and in fact might hurt the patient psychologically.
Here are some links:

I have a few colleagues in psychiatry and have heard them say that the problem with these researches is that intersexual people are usually included in them, as they go through same psychiatric hospitals as transsexuals, and intersexuals far more commonly have second-doubts about their treatments. Of course they can't talk that much about their patients, but one of them said that almost all of the intersexuals have had some regrets while the transsexuals not really, and those who did, it's been because of surgery complications.
Personally I think long-term reasearch would be preferable, since any big surgery leaves you feeling blue for a while.

Anecdotal evidence.
#119 - zaphodcoolfrood (08/20/2016) [-]
Yeah, that's why I said gender and not sex.

Don't get me wrong, gender reassignment can absolutely do more harm than good, to themselves. I was speaking more along the line of the kind of intolerance that objects to their very existence. If they're not hurting anybody then why even care? Let people live how they want to live and all that jazz.
