Yup, a live-action superhero flick that literally lacked any sense of self-awareness or irony.

It was like someone took Captain Planet and tried to make a serious social commentary piece based on it.

I remember really enjoying those Unfortunate Events books when I was younger. I tried going back and reread the first two books, but, I dunno, it's not the same. It's just kinda boring. Back then I didn't realize it was supposed to be a dark comedy. Now I do and it's not that funny, and fuck. The one thing I've always hated about books is how hard it is to imagine it 'correctly'. Like how the fuck am I supposed to picture the area around this character with so little detail? But on the other hand if they add too much it gets ridiculous and complicated and fuck, I don't wanna read anymore. I don't do it right.

Also that movie adaption was shit. Le funny Jim Carrey face in everything definitely makes it good, Hollywood
>>
>>253041146
It was,mbut it was in the context of the story, so it's fine

I'm not saying it's a masterpiece, I'm just saying that in an era where every hollywood blockbuster and animated film is the same exact thing all the fucking time because the fat cows eating popcorn like it, it's a breath of fresh air, it feels unique, and even manages to shove in some Social commentary about how big corporations manipulate the population, but since this is a hollywood blockbuster the message is that everyone is their own special snowflake

It's still there, but I'm not sure if the people watching it will get the hint and actually think about it later

I mostly liked the Unfortunate Events books because they actually showed a villain who managed to win more often than not.

Compared to practically every other book where the child protag wins the day because of the power of friendship or their mother's love, it was a breath of fresh air to see a bunch of kids getting the shit end of the stick at every turn and have no resolution.

I have more trouble with how characters actually look.

Unfortunate Events didn't really have this problem because of Brett Helquist's fantastic illustrations.

Coincidentally he also arted this cool surprisingly intelligent/funny fantasy that has some great themes about censorship and maintaining conviction in a world full of deceit and greedy self-interest. It's called Fly by Night.

Sometimes I wish I could just forget that I ever liked things so that the pain of when those things crumble apart wouldn't exist.

What happened to that part in everyone's brain that says "We better not"? Did George Lucas infected Hollywood with that plague? Is the government banishing shame and encouraging retardation because it gives them money and people something else to think about other than questioning why certain things in society?

I just don't know.

I think there were two spin-off/side books that add more clues. One is a "biography" of the Lemony Snickett character that reveals a lot about what exactly his role was, another is a cool (but probably hard to find complete) sort of experimental collection of in-universe documents and letters mostly pertaining to the Baudelaire family. Neither explains everything outright but offer clues that the reader can piece together.

Or you can look it up on the internet.

An essential part of becoming an adult, as well as a decent human being is to shame your intrusive thoughts, for as innocent as they may be, like a Calvin and Hobbes movie, or a cheap easy alternative to life, and respect the part of your brain that warns you not to do certain things and actually think about what you're doing

Oh and while I'm at it, this shit has been eating at me for years and years. I remember years and years ago there was some song about an ugly lady my kindergarden(?) class sang. And it got really complicated and funny because of it or something.

I think a Battleship movie could have been great, but modern hollywood is ass.

They were aiming for Teenagers with that movie. Most teenagers don't know what the fuck Battleship is and even if they liked the movie they wouldn't have checked out the board game.

The movie should have been a strategic war movie that aimed for young adults to adults. People who would watch it, enjoy it, and go out and buy the board game to play with their younger sibling/children.
>>
>>253046873
Like everything about the series tried to subvert normal children's series expectations, so I don't know why one would expect a straightforward, pat ending. Then again we were kids and that's what kids want.

They probably had like a fear of public speaking or something. Not everyone is good at the same things. Not everyone's parents read to them outside of school when they were younger. It's not like you lose anything by burning through an hour of English waiting for the class to popcorn its way to the next paragraph.

Also I know (or at least hope) you read Gatsby in HS. I think the first line is relevant in this case.

I just did not want to waste the time and the paper writing down the formulas I'd forget in a day. The teacher was a pushover and just gave me the grade I needed to pass for the hell of it.

I don't know if these were very popular but The Edge Chronicles remains one of my favorite fantasy universes even among "adult" fantasy lit. The world felt cozy compared to other stuff, but it was great how it avoided the usual high-fantasy tolkien-knockoff tropes and built this really bizarre, rich world. The illustrations didn't hurt of course.

Like, the George Orwell bolshevik allegory? Damn, you kids did not fuck around.

I never gave a shit about running series but I did read the shit out of goosebumps books when I was younger and even read the choose your own adventure ones which were bullshit in their outcomes. How the fuck was I suppose to know that my butler was going to wish me to be his servant after making a wish to become rich? Jesus.

Dude, i was in tenth grade.
And no one liked her either, she was a bitch who never let us do shit.
She was also our second teacher too, only lasted a month. After that, the school decided to have the actual teachers chaperone us.

The first one was fired for showing us a clip of that Jack Black movie based off a true story, Bernie, I think.
And was planning on showing us the whole movie, even though it wasn't certified by the school.

I remember in 1st grade this kid wouldn't let me help complete his puzzle. Another couple kids wouldn't teach me how to play shoot or whatever it was. I've never really been liked even though I've never really interacted with people. Not missing anything

I've never read this before. Recently saw it on a friend's shelf and just the title and cover cracked me up. Like, it's a time-travelling cat. That is funny.
