    [–] While I would love a Kamala movie, this is very saddening to think about. CricketPinata -1 points ago in marvelstudios

    Mostly troll accounts have said negative things about Captain Marvel on YouTube and Twitter, people don't realize that those the septic system of the internet and don't represent the opinions of a significant amount of people.

    You can't be institutionally racist to the majority group that has the majority of the political power.

    You can systematically be prejudiced against white people in China or Zimbabwe, but you generally can't in say France.

    YouTube comments are bot ridden trash heaps for anyone and everyone.

    YouTube is more interested in demonetizing educational channels and handing musicians royalties to troll farms, to ever be interested in getting rid of any of the comment bots.

    [–] 'Star Wars: Episode 9' Has Completed Principal Photography CricketPinata 1 points ago in movies

    The thing is Waterworld isn't really consider a 'bad' movie by most critics. It is decidedly average as far as the critical consensus is or was concerned.

    Read up old reviews on Rotten Tomatoes or Metacritic, It is mostly positive or 'mixed', with only a handful of really 'it suuuckkss!'- reviews.

    Most of the criticism of the film was on it being a rip off of "Mad Max", it's budget and cost overruns, and claims of Kevin Costner's vanity in regards to the rumors about spending a lot of money doing stuff like digitally retouching his hair.

    [–] TIL Della Porta (1563) invented a method of writing secret messages inside eggs. Ink transferred from the shell to the boiled egg inside. The message could only be revealed when cracked and peeled CricketPinata 1 points ago in todayilearned

    Some people think that the original method is exempting a step, or purposefully obscuring something to make it harder for authorities to detect or replicate.

    Some people have indeed been able to get images to appear within eggs, but methods used aren't clear or uniform because the pours on the egg aren't regular.

    It is, but some people believe that there are things purposefully exempted from Porta's method.

    You need to use a dye or pigment, they didn't.

    This discusses a method that worked but they had to do it slightly differently, and it wasn't super clear because the pours in the egg shell aren't uniform.

    [–] Role breakdown for the new Ghostbusters CricketPinata 1 points ago in ghostbusters

    If you look into some of the behind the scenes emails that were leaked in the Sony hack, Ivan and to an extent Aykroyd were ignored and kind of bullied. Amy and Feig kind of snicker about him in the emails and talk about how they will avoid interacting with him and making fun of his suggestions if I recall correctly.

    [–] Role breakdown for the new Ghostbusters CricketPinata 2 points ago in ghostbusters

    I think you have got it down with the tone they are probably going to aim for.

    Kid's being haunted and terrorized, maybe they are related to the Ghostbusters maybe they aren't, dig up Ray, maybe Ray calls Peter and Winston who come and help.

    I had the idea that maybe something that wants vengeance on the Ghostbuster's is going after their kids, and they are forced to come together to protect them again.

    [–] Role breakdown for the new Ghostbusters CricketPinata 2 points ago in ghostbusters

    I think you have the right take and right idea. The more I think about it, the more I think that the lead kid will be Ray or Peter's kid.

    How I am imagining it, it will start like a conventional ghost/horror film with the kid being haunted, and it slowly is revealed that it's some supernatural force that wants vengeance on the Ghostbusters.

    So they will be forced to rally and all come together, and it turns out everyone connected to the Ghostbusters is being haunted.

    I imagine something like a more sophisticated version of "The Boogieman Cometh", mixed with a story like "It" or "Stranger Things".

    And the Ghostbuster's have to reform and rebuild to figure out what's happening to them.

    A smaller more intimate storyline that is more about the Ghostbusters and their families as character pieces, with a big adventure/horror story at it's core.

    I feel if he is going from this angle, he may even be bringing his experience from when they gathered at the house in Martha's Vineyard to write the first movie.

    When they originally pitched GB84 to Columbia they didn't have a script, so Reitman, Ramis, and Aykroyd all gathered their families at some cabins on Martha's Vineyard, and the kids of each family all hung out together and saw the town while their father's all worked day in and day out at writing the script for the movie.

    The idea of families being brought together, and the father's working together to solve a problem, it feels like there are some good bones for an idea there.

    Just an idea I had.

    [–] What are the chances that the filmmakers will try to digitally recreate Harold Ramis for GhostBusters 3? CricketPinata 5 points ago in ghostbusters

    I feel like it will be low, Reitman grew up with Harold Ramis as like a member of his family.

    If there is a way for it to happen and for it to not be forced or inappropriate they will do it if it serves the story.

    Otherwise, I feel it isn't necessary for him to make a physical appearance.

    The FS7 is a good camera, but sees more use in situations where traditionally you'd be using a Cx00 Canon.

    If you're going to use a Sony for narrative, you'll most likely use a F55, F5, F65, or Venice, those are all of the Cinealta cameras that are still in common usage.

    [–] Almost as many people in Japan view the U.S. as a “major threat” as those who view an increasingly antagonistic China as a significant global concern, a new poll has found. CricketPinata 1 points ago * (lasted edited a day ago) in worldnews

    Robert Maddox is the Professor of History at Pennsylvania State University, he's a professional historian.

    Here is the cached version of the article: https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:-qJBj00lwiYJ:https://historynewsnetwork.org/article/52502+&cd=16&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=us

    If you would have read the rest of my post, I go over that detail extensively in it, the SBS says that Japan would have MAYBE surrendered 3 months AFTER the Atomic Bombings, ONLY if conventional bombing continued. That's their actual conclusions, the atomic bombs and surrender immediately, or three more months of conventional strategic bombings.

    The failed coup is entirely relevant, most of the upper leadership were totally against surrendering even after the atomic bombings, thus putting into doubt that conventional bombing or an invasion would even have done it.

    The Emperor himself said that he was personally motivated to surrender by the Atomic bombs, the allies were lucky that the Japanese surrendered when they did.

    The debate between the Traditionalist Perspective that the Atomic Bombings accelerated the Japanese surrender or were necessary to end the war and the Revisionists who argue that it was not is complex, and hardly "settled".

    Of the books listed on the Atomic Heritage reading list about the debate, 4 of the 19 take the Revisionist perspective, the most dominate opinion in discussions on the matter are towards the traditionalist perspective that the bombings accelerated the end of the war, or were necessary.
