    Friend, assuming you are asking this question in good faith, I will say right now that there really isn't an alternative. Discussions of art and culture are inevitably going to intersect with politics, because you can't discuss the messages behind the media without revealing at least some your political orientation. I would suggest instead examining within yourself why you would expect to avoid "politics" in general or if it's really just a particular kind of politics that bothers you and why.

    We need to talk about Party Time. Whose dog is that?! Why does he rsp? How does a dog in 1912 know rap? Was he planning this rap? Like is he the cruise director for the animals? Would you burst into rap about party time if a mouse thanked you for not ending up "in someone else's digestion "?

    I literally cannot believe that this movie ends with a “Hey, the movie’s not over yet...” That is fucking bonkers!

    Not even sure where to start on this. So, I'll just start at the beginning. The music in the opening is very strange sounding. It sounds like parts of it are being played backward. This kind of reversed music played under a lot of the movie. It would have been so much better without any music because the backward sounding music was kind of unsettling.

    As the person charged with cleaning up the mess when real trolls show up here, OP's criticism of the show is pretty mild. HDTGM has unquestionably gotten more political since 2016, going so far as to publish minisodes about June's book and an interview with a local politician. I skipped those, not because they don't align with my politics—I'm an atheist feminist who would be delighted by either a Warren (sigh) or Sanders presidency—but because my podcast time is increasingly rare these days and I can barely keep up with the main episodes, let alone side missions. When this thread was started, I hoped it would be met with the stony silence it deserves and then forgotten, since it doesn't violate any of the stated forum rules or warrant deletion. Some of the responses are getting close, though.

    I'm literally just sitting here cackling actually petting a white fluffy cat like a Bond villain. YOU ARE ALL WELCOME!

    I don’t know about you, but I enjoy graffiti that randomly mentions a music genre— which would be a non sequitur if not for it being anachronistically performed at that very instant.

    I get the cathartic impulse to clap back at this poster (believe me), but it’s a lose-lose endeavor; as evidenced by the initial post and their response, this commentator (who interestingly enough only has two posts on this message board, btw) thrives on negative attention and here we are giving them exactly that. We live an increasingly divided and conquered culture, and resorting to their methods (playground name calling) is just fuel for their fire; they were just waiting for a response to their drama-fueled post and here we both are giving it to them. Ultimately, what’s the point? Let go of the anger and frustration they are so desperately trying to manipulate you into, starve this post and just let it wither away into obscurity. They want to leave and get their little two cents in in the process? Mazel tov and whatever... Hey, no one’s keeping them here, right?

    What I still don't get is how Scott Speedman thought he was too big to return to this series.

    Yeah but it fails at world building in such spectacular fashion while those have found the right formula to excel exceptionally well. That's only if she can take him "Higher." I never saw this film but have seen the others in the series and I realize that the prequel is easily the best of the series because it's Michael Sheen acting the fuck out of a horrible story and making it palatable. The first one is insane for how quickly they try to create a world filled with lore and backstory but try to focus on Kate Beckinsale being in a skin tight bodysuit. There are interesting ideas like getting memories from a person's blood, which was an idea introduced in the first one when the vampires are going to bring their next leader up to speed on current events after a hibernation period, but then they started using it every 10 minutes in the sequel and it was quick diminishing returns.

    I was OBSESSED with the first movie, Queen of the Damned and Buffy as a nerdy tween girl. Honestly these movies are what a 2000's Hot Topic would be if it could be a movie and I love them (and Queen of the Damned) for that ridiculous fact. I'm not even going to touch how stupid crazy the prequel movie was.

    This for the win! I just realized: Underworld is like John Wick for goths, or Fast & Furious for manic depressives.

    The second is pretty great. I think my least favorite is Awakening, but it’s been a while since I’ve seen it. The point is: these are perfect movies and anyone who disagrees with us are dumb-dumb wrongheads. Oh, and Scott Speedman and Scott Stapp are 1000% the same person, right

    I admit I wasn’t excited to see a political interview in my feed. I also didn’t listen because I don’t vote in LA. But I know a lot of people do. I think it’s within Paul and June’s right to use their platform for, what they think, is the greater good. This is a free podcast. They don’t owe me anything, On the other hand, I also wonder what is about JUNE’s politics that is offensive? (Moreso than Jason’s 9/11 jokes?) It is a fairly well-known fact that women run for office less than men do. I think both parties could benefit from June’s book. I sincerely hope this isn’t another example of the forum complaining that Cameron Esposito is too loud, when Jason and Pete Holmes were also shouting. (And without knowing what is in other people’s hearts, I cannot know.)

    I remember when I was a kid, my dad always complained that the cartoons I watched would rot my brain. Most probably weren’t this crappy, but some probably were.

    THIS MOVIE IS INSANE WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA?! I tried to rewatch it because unlike gigi it was not as fresh on my mind and if my memory is correct I saw The Room, Titanic II, and this all in the same weekend in 2012, so I literally blocked everything except the Dog Rap out of my brain. But as I tried to rewatch I was struck by that first scene of the ship sinking how they just reused the same animation over and over as new things happened to the ship. It was too hard to watch that stupid girl's face go through the same surprise multiple times.

    Oh fuck, their “mucho gusto/put on your dancing shoes-to” song had me baffled.

    I thought it was weird they made him from New York. I know Americans were on the Titanic, but he's just a detective. It would have made way more sense to have him be English. I think you're right it's "funnier" was their thinking. Speaking of unusual choices for character ethnicities, what was up with those mice? Why are there offensively caricatures of Mexican mice?

    Yes, she definitely stayed on but didn't sing Nearer My God to Thee. Weird. YouTube commenter bobisheaux says:

    So my big question was did they give this movie to like three different animation studios so they could get it out faster? There are so many different styles and quality of animation. You have the cartoony people, the more realistic people and then the animals. There is no consistent style for any of them or any reason. If you were to tell me they took two separate movies about the cruise ships and tied them together by doing their own in house animated sequences I would 100% believe you.

    This movie motivated me to clean my apartment while it was playing in the background! Thanks, movie! I usually procrastinate on stuff like that, but for 70 minutes, you changed my ways!
