    Art looks gorgeous, but I categorically cannot muster the slightest interest in anime where the story is some online game crap. I don't care how much they dramatize it with flashy scenes, if it's all just a game environment then it's all zero impact for me.

    At least with the likes of the Tron movies, there's an actual personal stake in the situation. Heck, I think even the old Digimon series had crossover like that, making it inherently infinitely more interesting than kids driving around some avatars online.

    I liked the first and only season of sword art online because it did have stakes, and I liked that him and love interest got married in the real world when they got out, and it had a happy ending and neither of them was stupid enough to ever put on one of those murder vr headsets ever again

    not epic high art, but a short anime with a solid beginning middle and end that added stakes to the "you're in a game" setting

    I swear one of these "you're in the game" animes had a really creepy incest part to it.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    It's similar to "too bad they never made a sequel to the Matrix", except the SAO stuff gets way worse.

    I've only seen clips of it, so I don't know if there's a specific line, but it gets real bad.

    since we're off the rails, i don't want to be wrong but i don't remember any of that stuff in any of the other SAO shows...please don't tarnish my memory. Definitely people can watch the first one and it's fine. The gun one is kind of interesting, everything else is forgettable.

    They were roughly on par, which is what I think made the movie work so well as Tango & Cash 2.0 and what I'm hoping they don't diminish in the sequel. I do find it odd they'd just write out Van Wilder's love interest Elektra so quickly when it's not like she became a big name star, kind of undercuts the last movie's b-plot.

    It comes out in the second season that they're not actually related but they do live together like brother and sister. My memory of it is she meets him in game, falls for him and they find out who each other is ooooooh snap.

    Anyways, I know everyone loves Zach Snyder so glad to see that zombie heist flick looks like fun.

    So I generally dislike the "nearly people fast and smart" zombie, and I don't care for Zak Snyder; however, that trailer is working hard to make me ignore both of those things. Excellent use of "The Gambler," too. Hmmm. On the other hand, the trailer for Man of Steel was definitely the trailer of a movie I would love to see, so I'll wait for some verdicts to come in first, I suppose.

    Yeah, I think if they can manage to defeat Thanos at some point, I'll finally catch up on the series.

    But only if it involves a Twisted Metal-style race in which they race for the pink slip for the Infinity Gauntlet.

    Let's be specific. They're "going into space" in what looks like the Fiero from the last trailer with rockets strapped to it, wearing either old Russian Space suits or dive helmets.

    Like whatever the fuck is going on there. I get the feeling they drew the short straws.

    Remember back in Fast and Furious when Dom was a street racer and truck hijacker who spent half his life in jail after beating a man into a coma with a wrench because of a track accident that killed his dad? He was hijacking VCRs.

    Mostly, watch S1 and stop at the midpoint (if you haven't seen it yet, I won't spoil it, but you'll know when). The second half is rough.

    But I really like pretty much all of S2. There's a whole stretch where it's just "hey were a bunch of dipshit kids/young adults playing a game together, this is pretty cool" and it was just a decent watch.
