TR Memescape

  • I think that PM uses almost any topic with the intent to shock other people and that he holds pretty much no beliefs of his own. I am pretty sure that PM is the walking embodiment of schadenfreude and lacks anything resembling the conceptualization of a soul. He is not worth even trying to shock, because he is incapable of so human an emotion. But thats just my opinion.

Just watched the 8th episode.  Good stuff. Hopefully there'll be another season (as it looks like there will be).

The Slippery Slope Of Nostalgia

Stranger Things manages to encapsulate all of the worst elements of clumsily-crafted television--clunky dialogue, blatant sexism, and poorly written characters and scenarios--all celebrated under the auspices of nostalgia, a wistful pining for a past that perhaps never existed. I believe the sensation people are actually nostalgic for is how they remembered television/film looked and felt in the '80s, not what the reality was. Either way, it's a bleak yearning. To revel in a state of nostalgia is to be comfortable; this is dangerous because comfort is in direct opposition to change and growth.

We are currently experiencing an absolute explosion of quality, dramatic episodic programming that rivals the best dramatic Hollywood feature film releases. Spectacle may still fill theater seats, but television is where many entertainment aficionados now turn for their story fixes; these stories have all but dethroned the Hollywood feature film monolith. Unfortunately, Stranger Things does little to nothing to propel us forward into this Golden Age of television.

This is bizarre. She managed to pull exactly what isn't a part of the narrative as her description of the narrative.

ah, the blatant sexism of a show that subverts the horror movie cliche of killing women for having sex and portrays single mothers as awesome people and slut shaming as a really shameful dastardly act

Have to say, Winona Ryder is amazing at least in the first 5 episodes.

eta: this article isn't bad overall, so maybe these are shit examples being quoted more than endorsed.

the betchel test is one of those things that's always seemed more interesting in aggregate than for understanding individual films. like BMI for how unhealthy a population is.
