What people say about blackcomet

- Jerry. Jerry rigged.
Both spellings are correct.
They shouldn't be. Say "jury rigged" out loud. It sounds retarded. Alabama retarded.
Jury-rig, jerry-rig, jerry-built
A little-used definition of jury is intended or designated for temporary use. It’s a nautical term of unknown origin, and in its early use it usually appeared in the phrase jury mast, referring to a temporary mast put up to replace one that has been lost.1 This is the source of the verb jury-rig, meaning to assemble for temporary use, and its derivative adjective jury-rigged.
Jerry-rig is a variant spelling of jury-rig. One could call it incorrect because it entered the language several centuries after jury-rig and is obviously derived from a misspelling of the original, but it is widely used and is accepted by some dictionaries.
It would be easier to dismiss jerry-rig as incorrect if we didn’t have the separate adjective jerry-built, which means built of bad materials. Jerry-built may or may not be etymologically related to jury-rig (its origins are mysterious), but all major dictionaries agree that jerry is the correct spelling in this case.
Whatever, both ways are correct despite your personal feelings about some words.
>> to 3,
Say "nigger rigged." That's definitely correct, and appropriate, and we're
on the internet.
where i grew up, we always just said "rednecked"
I'm from the south. We call it "fixed"
- We don't need to speak of it. We know.
Why don't we need to speak of it ? it's a good show.
There is no need. Anything we say we all agree with. It will be a short conversation.
Well I hope the movie is good.
Scarlet is good with action and has a lot of experience with wires, thanks to Marvel. I hope the script lives up to the anime story. Not saying they should pull from the show, rather tell the story in the GitS style. And hope the director doesn't muffle the story just to make the movie visually appealing
I'm not sure if Snyder's characteristic style will fit well with the GitS theme, but I'm cautiously optimistic. However, I am wary about any sort of attempted localisation on any series, especially this one.
I was using Snyder as an example. While he has great visual shots, he is not the best storyteller. And I am not familiar with Rupert Sanders' work, so I can't assess his value.
I just hope they get the right mood. I don't care if they retell the first movie, start before she joined section 9, before she joined the military, or after the Solid State Society. I agree though, copying the show is a bit of a lazy way to do it, and will loose them some points.
I think the GiTS story vibe is important. And I hope Scarlet does her research on Mokoto. I don't feel like it's a good idea to add your interpretation of what the character should be.
I was using extending your example, sorry if that wasn't clear. There are lots of directors who push their style too much, and whose styles wouldn't fit well. I personally hope they don't go too wild with the story, unless they're getting a lot of help from the original writers.
I hope they nail the rest of the team, too. Kusanagi is important, but I can see them messing up her relationship with Batou, or drastically changing the other characters and getting away with it, because they're more in the background.
I know this is iffy for a lot of fans, but I hope they don't explore a love interest with Batou. Or at most tip toe around it.
I can't think of anyone who is right for Kusanagi. Batou, Micky Rouke? He has the right physique, and can change his accent.
