Magsj, fuck you for fucking me, I'm eloquent enough. I'm the one who introduced the word "ain't" to philosophy.

I fuck you and that's the thanks I get? [-(

Ain't don't need no introductions, so how so?


Much more realistic than most action films and Kung Fus, but with just enough unrealism to keep the viewer entertained... the brutalness in the attacks and kills are harsh yet compelling.. for me.

Judge Dredd 2 was disappointing, as Mother would have been offed ages ago.. as her character was revealed more and more, I thought.. who would let that cruddy old bitch run them/run things? Even Mother in Futurama had more clout and power, and that's coming from a cartoon character.

It was a good impression of my mother. Never underestimate the leadership capacity of the opposite sex, something painfully misunderstood in modern gender equality studies for the workplace. Men rise to leadership roles around women, and women make good leaders of groups of men, and it isn't from a suppressed sexual attration of chauvenism, but because they exploit noncompetitive roles assigned to our parent, who isn't a direct role model. Very few men model themselves off of their mother (other than Trixie- did you ban him again?),and vice versa women tend not to model themselves off their father. This area of exploitability remains for leaders of the opposite sex.

I've seen groups of men lead by women by sexual allure, but being maternal plays out very differently.

Being called "mama" is no coincidence. She nurtured people on brute violence, and got a corner on a product with high payoff and the ability to higher guns fast. She had the top floor, didn't have to sorry about competition from any direction except down, other gangs had to worry about it both directions, and never had the full height advantage of bring able to have interlocking lanes of fire covering the hallways below. A small outfit can rapidly expand from the top down. Her priorities would of been food supply and water, as well as ammo. A much smaller force could absorb larger forces below with those advantages. Notice special forces like to land on rooftops? Forts are on the high ground? Similar idea.

TBC:

The only hold it seems to me that she had was protection.. for them.. from each other, but that wasn't made evident enough to make the story plausible enough for me.

I see it a lot, women sit around a group of guys, large guys, hostile guys.... They are effectively the matriarch even when it doesn't even occur to the men. They don't keep older, post-sexual women around in their crews for the pregnancy free fun they can have. It is that maturnal instinct, men will get rid of guys they can't accept, which is most anyone, buy women can enter into any gang or tong they want, and make significant trespass men would never tolerate from other men, or even breeding age women.

A younger woman can achieve this status, but she becomes essentially unsexualized. Think about Queen Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen. That's the constraints of leadership and reproductive courtship for women in paternal dynastic fuedalistlm, a lot more sexual options in a democracy, but not nearly as wide as many women today think. Aristocracies tend to have the Max mix on loose sexual mores and leadership roles. You can let any old whore mix government and fun in the bedroom, changing partners, in a system like the British empire had in Kenya in the 60s with the whites settler elites. Booty ran the show.

Not a world I am remotely familiar with or would want to operate under, so still a disappointing film to me.. along with Captain America and other such similar tripe.

I want to watch it again, just so I can pick it apart some more. I also want to watch The Raid again but for the opposite reason.

There's a raid 2? :shock:

Not sure about it from the trailer I just watched, so will check further to see if it's worth taking a couple of hours out of my life and daydreaming for.

I thought Secret Defense, a French mystery drama (1998) was really refreshing to watch in terms of movie tempo (it's a slow tempo movie - I would compare watching this movie akin to enjoying a meal in France), as it comes out more natural and unrushed compared to the current movies which are hyped up in terms of speed, action and personas. Many movies, especially in Hollywood, are becoming more and more unnatural and fantastic. Everybody is a superhero, or wizard, or has secret ESP abilities, and I think with CGI it's only going to get worse. Don't people want to watch how normal people react to life anymore?
