The Escapist's Videos

I know I already have one of these for Zero Punctuation, but this one is more for, well, everything else. Especially when various hosts will talk about any form of entertainment.

 

Not to mention its a lot easier to watch these when I'm not watching them on their Ad Filled Website. Which is why I post this Video before any others.

I originally didn't want to talk about this because I hate the movie(s) musical(s).... I mean dammit, those were so effing lame. Couldn't they have done those movies without the stupid singing? The children singing is so irking I would eventually have the same reaction every time I'd see a Kids Bop commercial during Adult Swim. Or when The Land Before Time sequels just outright sucked.

I'm Hoping now that Annie's dad is purely a politician & not rich. Because I want to be mad at Warbucks for being part of The Status Quo. And if he were African American I would then feel the need split hairs. Just because I would then have to have the fear that I'm somehow coming off as racist. When all I really want to do is be mad at a rich jerk for being a rich jerk.
 
Then I applied my Logic to my Batlogic & now I realize I don't want a Black Batman after all.
 
If anything I want The Waynes' to stop coming off these rich people that give back to a city that constantly fails to prevent crime. They could still have a monopoly on Gotham's public transport. But they never give back to the city unless they're the only ones directly profiting from it.
 
Then I want Bruce Wayne to refuse to fund the Gotham police because his parents were kill. Although if the Gotham police were properly funded they might not have died. Instead of Bruce Wayne giving money back to a city that still fails to lower the crime rate.
 
Then when Batman shows up no one believes its Bruce Wayne. Because Batman wants to prevent Gotham's crimes where Bruce Wayne could care less.
 
Then during the whole Robin / Nightwing time line (if it ever went that far) you could then have Dick Grayson mad at how much Batman & Bruce Wayne contrast. And if Bruce Wayne had funded the Gotham police then Dick Grayson's parents would still be alive.
 
From that point on if there were anymore Robins it would stem from Bruce Wayne's urge that Batman can never be wrong. Even though Bruce Wayne can & should be wrong just to maintain the contrast between the two.

Even if taken as metaphor I still don't want to see this movie. Because someone is going to take this as real & therefore good. Where if I had to take this as real I'd just see it as evil. Because its a massive genocide. And if only humans have souls to these people then you have to factor in every other animal just lost their only chance at life. So yeah I can't help but to find that evil.

I'm so far behind on watching these.. I'll catch up soon tho. ^_^

 

Jim's rant about Whales makes me feel (a little) bad for even doing Micro Transactions, but is definitely worth watching.

My hatred for Facebook comes from my hatred for their website. And I rather not support said website in any shape or form. Even if that means no longer wanting The Oculus Rift. I also think the idea of Oculus Rift use in public argument is a bit of a bad straw man. He might as well say console gaming is dead for the same reason.
