THE CRINGE-WORTHY INTERNET THREAD

This is old now, but this goes to show you how behind I am on modern movies. I didn't even know a Ben Hur Remake existed till tonight... I instantly knew it wasn't going to be good. I dug around the net and found lots of critiques of the film. All of which I share the same opinion.

I grew up to 1959's Ben Hur with Charelston Heston, one of the best actors ever, in my opinion. One of his greatest films. I knew this remake would never compare to the 1959's remake, ever. ANd I was born in the 80s. It wasn't like I was alive back in those golden days of great actors. But my mother did have great taste in films. It's very rare that I'll sit down and really enjoy a good film made in the 2000s+

And this reminds me why I haven't gone to the movie theaters in well over a decade and a half, let alone care to watch a lot of new films. And why I hate new music and such. It's always about appealing to a wider audience. Gaming, Movies, Music...you name it.

Bit of a rant, but meh... I just hate mediocre stuff. -.-

I like Bill Wyler's  films, but the fan base is pretty much a niche audience now.  Little things like cinematography, choreography and directing are dead arts in Hollywood now.  CGI explosions, 3 second frames, lens flares and other gimmickry have ruined cinema.  Not to mention actors who can't act and directors who can't deliver.

I saw that clip in a documentary years ago.  After the show was she refused the date and didn't go out with him.

She liked him enough before she met him in person ;) Lucky her that she trusted her instincts and refused to go on a date with him.

Also, "bananas" ? Really? That alone was something to be weary of ;)

Zarna Yoshi...she's the 'Hugh Mungus' shrieking lunatic from maybe a year ago.  This is an old video and she's lost a ton of followers on social media.  That's a good thing but she's still worth cringing at.

That would be a sight to see. Though, I don't watch Kraut's vids, but I have watched many of Warski's non live videos. And he has no way to challenge youtubers like Stefan Molyeux and Styxhexenhammer666. He's way out of their league.

Well, they did it.  They went after the alt-right...and Kraut has deleted all of the videos on his channel.  SomeBlackGuy no longer wants to talk about the alt-right.  Andywarski is cool bro'n it on his own and he's not talking about the alt-right.  The only one left is Sargon of Akkad and he's making a complete ass of himself.

It's a drawn out story but the gist is they didn't understand basic principles like causality and other tenants of true debate.  They wanted to skip the preamble and go straight to the rhetoric, and the people they were debating weren't SJWs and feminists so that ignorant bullshit didn't work.  Since they kept losing debates they made a Discord chat so they could talk about doxxing and exchanging information.  That got leaked and now their chief goon Kraut is long gone and the rest are flapping in the wind trying to salvage their viewer bases and what little credibility they have left.  There are plenty of videos about what happened...oh, and MundaneMatt was wrapped up in that doxxing shit too.

All told is was great watching the skeptics spurge and freak out once they realized they were up against people who didn't panic during a confrontation and lose their train of thought.

I saw andy comment yesterday on one of Stix's vids about him.  I used to follow some of them including Sargon but I limited it down to just Stix for a long while now. After a while Andy just got annoying. He spews crap to sound cool targeting the left. No real arguments. I regrettably used to follow IW from November last year to early 2017. AJ is annoying as fuck. Always interrupting guests.

The only journalist that I really like from IW is David Knight.

Forgot to mention that I also still follow James Allsup.

Although to be accurate it should say, "Liberals". I personally know two Democrats who haven't quite pushed their heads the whole way up their asses yet...

lol...

Not sure if anyone saw it. Got the impression maybe not. But incase if you didn't, the part that I'm laughing and cringing was at 0:36 to the end of the video. What the guy starts spewing.

All I can think about is how many rays and beams irradiate your crotch when you walk through the checkout bays...

I am also tickled to be one of the 30% that doesn't own or use a Smartphone. I still use my beat-to-hell flip phone from ten years ago!

I couldn't. I had to upgrade. My old phone woudn't work with the newer systems. :( It was older. Never failed and had reception that worked 10 feet underground in a morgue. That is another store for another time.
