    yea. we don't want to try to steal Paul's community there. if people want to chat about politics or the NBA or whatever, he's got a big Discord and places to do that. we'll have a few extra channels for side convos, but mostly we're sticking to awful movies. (and we have set up spots for our HDTGM watchalongs and Musical Mondays). that should keep it better focused and more forum-like, I think.

    Off-topic:RE: moving to Discord—how exactly is that going to work? I’ve looked at it and was pretty overwhelmed, If I’m being honest. No offense meant to the people who’ve worked on it, but it seems like huge numbers of people commenting in a variety of ways within several specific-yet-generalized categories (chat under HDTGM, for example, seems like it will be difficult to follow if you want to talk about specific movies/episodes because there’s so much going on). Maybe it’s because I’m 46, but I’m a little bummed that it feels so..complicated. and I’m concerned that the close-knit feel of the forum will get lost in the internet vacuum. That concern may be totally unfounded, but I’m basing it off my initial reaction to Discord. But I’m not against change, so I guess I’ll see.

    It is something we the mods are constantly discussing, and will be flexible and take any suggestions into account. We are going to use a few focused channels, especially for 'current' episodes. Every two weeks, we'll sort of 'clear it' in a way. If you want to talk about older movies/episodes, there's other channels for that to happen. People don't post Corrections & Omissions for old episodes anyway, so I don't anticipate too much cross-talk there. And really how often to people bump up really old threads here? We all stay fairly well-focused on the most recent eps. We'll have to see how the chatting develops though (and also consider how it is useful for Paul and crew) and be willing to adjust on the fly. I've been in some big Discords and discussions happen all the time and quicker. My biggest worry is it may be a little harder to write longer thought-out posts for Corrections & Omissions but we're confident it will end up there as we all get used to it. We are doing our best to set it all up like a forum, so to make the transition easier. Also, the big Discords I'm in have much more close-knit connections. We can chat a little more than we do here. Like, I don't know where almost any of you live, yet I chat with all of you all the time. We can converse now in Discord! That said, this is a pretty much purely a HDTGM Discord. I don't anticipate it being as broad as other groups, like Paul's own Discord.

    Good afternoon! Coming soon the HDTGM Message boards will be migrating to Discord! There are a few reasons for this, but most important reason is that the Earwolf Forums have become difficult for new listeners to come and participate. @JammerLea@AlmostAGhostand I have been working on making this transition as seamless as possible, providing a space that is inclusive where the HDTGM community can grow. As of now, the Discord Room, with Paul, Molly, and Cody's blessing, is officially open! Of course, there are sure to be a few growing pains, but ultimately, this will be an exciting step forward. Important Information: C&O's for A Gnome Named Gnorm have already been culled for the mini episode dropping 1/22 C&O's for the next movie will be pulled from both the Earwolf Message Boards AND The HDTGM Discord to be read on the mini episode dropping 2/5. After 2/5, ALL C&O's will come from the HDTGM Discord. I have great affection, and it's sad to see them go; however, after working on Discord, I do think it will be an fantastic change of venue. I hope to see you all there Discord Link: https://discord.gg/WbvbFyYp

    I’ll also argue that Inception-to me, at least—had a a melancholy, character driven center that was a successful thematic link to Memento. I know some people felt Inception was too schematically written, but I felt the performances really filled in what was needed emotionally. Tenet didn’t feel like it was character-driven at all and as a result just felt really empty. As a result, Nolan could have blown up ten 747s and I would not have cared. Bottom-line, I feel like Nolan’s recent films (barring Dunkirk) have done a 180 from his older work. He used to have a clear eye for where his characters were but not be great at shooting action/spectacle. Now he’s great at shooting action:/spectacle but has lost sight of his characters.

    Absolutely agree. In retrospect, the best word to describe any industry, especially Hollywood, would be "floundering." The bigger problem, however, is the movie is too obtuse to the point of turning people off. You'd need excitement and buzz for a true tentpole feature, and Tenet just doesn't engender that. Crossreference it with Inception, which could be argued as having a similarly obstuse plot point, lingering questions to the viewer, etc. On the face of it, though, it's "simpler." Like the old tenet (ahem, sorry) about writing science fiction-- "you get one thing." Inception's one thing is-- you can travel through layers of dreams. In Tenet, you start with one thing-- traveling "invertedly"/backwards through time, but then there's another thing with a war in the future, then another thing with arms dealers and artefacts, then another with who's leading the organization... What happened to saving something for a sequel ? The risk of trying to be so twisty is that your audience will turn around, then walk away

    I was fortunate enough to see it on the big screen here in Thailand. My first movie in a theatre in over a year! As an added bonus, I had NO idea what the premise was even about, as is often the case -- unless I'm going out of my way to pay attention, information about movies isn't as saturated over here. I only get enough information like titles and filmmakers and it's always a wonderful surprise to see a movie unfold fresh. In terms of spectacle, it didn't disappoint. The sound, the effects, the action. I was on edge, although that was likely just as much to the fact that the movie's plot demands your attention. I love time travel and philosophical mind trips, so I was all in, and pleasantly along for the ride. I anticipated a few of the "twists" of the conceit, but that didn't make it feel cheap; again, I was delighted when they happened. So as far as that goes, I liked it, but I can't say the enjoyment was very deep. Even if I was delighted, it was mentally taxing to watch the film, as any drop of attention threatened your entire comprehension. There wasn't much to grab onto beyond the spectacle, and the time travel/physics was both too strict and too loose at the same time. And people better than me have already analyzed to death the lack of characterization and the excess of, well, pretty much everything else. Someone said something something about a tale full of sound and fury? Oh, right. Ultimately it's signifying nothing. To have the fate entire film industry of 2020 riding on the reception of this movie was poorly chosen.

    All of the bad movies I’ve watched because of this podcast have led to this being my most frequently suggested movie on Amazon prime. Please do this movie!

    Hello, My name is Doctor Maurice P. Scondelbonce, eccentric billionaire. I had plans to create a Conan O'Brien Museum, but then I recently came by the news that his appendix has been medically destroyed. This will not do, folks. This will not do. The only way Conan O'Brien will be immortalized in one of MY museums will be via adjacency. Mr. Gorley, Ms. Movsesian, I am offering you the opportunity to have your very own museum. A museum in which YOU will be the headliner and this organ-wasting O'Brien will be no more than a side note of your legacy. In order to get the ball rolling on this project, please send your appendixes, and I will create a grand museum in your honors! Prudently, -- Dr. Maurice Pierre Scondelbonce

    Just watched this movie for the first time and this cheap dollar store knock off of Indiana Jones was so misogynistic and racists I could barely finish watching it. The main character is not a likable hero at all and Sharon stone’s character is extremely obnoxious- your typical blonde white woman in distress who bitches and complains about everything because if her “white privilege”. She’s absolutely useless and gets captured nearly dozen times by “black savages” and always needs to be saved. I would give this movie zero stars but that would be too generous.

    Because it’s currently “free” on Amazon Prime, I’m watching The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen at this very moment, and it’s... whew! There are no words. It’s like The Avengers for those with severe head trauma.

    At this point, I have to believe this is like how they've been teasing a Showgirls episode forever - in that they've got something special in mind for this movie and are just waiting for it to come together. Otherwise, I have no idea how this hasn't happened yet, because it is LEGENDARY ridiculous badness but so entertaining.

    So I signed up for this forum to specifically get this Movie on the show. I just watched it again, because I was bored and wanted to make sure it was as bad as I remember. I think this would be so hilarious. It is just asking to be made fun of. It has a 14/100 on metacritic. If that is not the perfect exmaple of how the hell did that movie get made, then I don't really know what is. I appreciated the MK and Street Fighter episodes, but I think this movie has those beat in all aspects.
