    Doesn't Netflix usually make their own new subtitles/dub when they take over projects like that?


    All the original Netflix series that are foreign language have Dubs and Subs for the most part, so I expect this to be the same...but with a show that already has a dedicated Subtitle track, I don't see why Netflix would redo it.

    And hey, at least it's not as bad as the stuff on Disney + getting a "Close Captioning" subtitle track on a tonne of stuff, so half of it is wrongly heard by the algorithm.

    Side tangent. What are you doing on tiktok, QT? Are you making super cute dance videos?


    I blame my nephew for showing my wife and I the app and constantly laughing at the content, and now we both are on it just to watch others make clever videos. It's like a YouTube account for me, following interesting content.

    Wife wanted me to make super cute dance videos with her, but I can't dance to save my life and neither can she...

    Is there also a demographic issue with Twitter. I.e TikTok and insta have a demographic that isnt going to be as responsive to Trump? Twitter is more aligned with his core base.


    As someone who is on TikTok, believe me there are a fair number of Trump supporters on there....they are far, far outweighed by the anti-Trump people mind you, but there's enough Trump supporters to be noticeable.

    But largely, yes Twitter is the biggest pool of his base, and the bots that seek to pretend to be his base.

    Would be sort of fun if, now that we're approaching the election, Twitter just banned the president. What would it do to Trump's communication? Would he shift to tick tock? Or Facebook? My Space?


    I always wondered what if Twitter was not a US company...like if it was made and run from ANYWHERE else in the world (barring Russia) then the POTUS would have been shut out of it YEARS ago.

    That said, I would LOVE to see him try to shut them down...it would be a laughably bad idea to try to force a privately owned company to operate only as he sees fit or get shut down.

    Beyond that, he won't shut them...becuase he has no where else to spit his randomness that is seen by most of his base...they MIGHT be savvy enough to flip over to Instagram....MAYBE, but the majority of them are not savvy enough for any of the other widely used social media platforms...like Try TikTok Mr. President....the Chinese company that owns it would stomp down hard on your rhetoric.

    Zack Snyder has made one decent movie, and that came out fourteen years ago. His entire career is a study in a man whom does not understand the concept of subtlety, or of complexity. He has exactly one tool in his story telling arsenal, and that is a sledgehammer. That DC thought it was a good idea to give him of all people the reins of their superhero franchise is beyond absurd.

    Nah, I realize I'm in a minority enjoying the majority of his work. I don't expect everyone to like it. I can see the reasons why others don't like it. For the same reasons I don't like Rian Johnson's Star Wars effort.

    Mother Boxes are .....


    It was less a request for an explanation, I could tell they were basically infinity stones. More a problem with the name. Mother. Box.


    Ah! I misunderstood. Well, they were invented by Jack Kirby in the 1971? It was also invented by a scientist on Apokolips named Himon (not making this up)...I don’t know if that explains it. There is also a character named Granny Goodness who runs a sort of torture ring and trains women to be scantily clad warriors...make of that what you will. There is (as noted by Primateus) Father boxes, a grandmother box, and an orphan box. I think the tone was meant to be "family", but yeah it comes across as weird. But then it was 1971 in comics, a really psychedelic era.

    I don't understand what warner bros gets from this snyder cut, either

    A) it's better than the whedon version and they look like chumps for spending all that money reshooting it

    Or

    B) it's as good or worse and they look like chumps for spending the money to release the snyder cut


    It’s because Warner Bros is under new management now. The new caretakers are interested in seeing wha Snyder had planned. Beyond that HBO is launching a streaming service they need a hook. Disney spent a bunch of money on The Mandalorian, this is their spend....if that makes sense?

    EDIT: This is also not unprecedented, 1980's SUPERMAN II was famously recut and re-released in 2006 as The Donner Cut because WB had replaced Richard Donner way late in shooting with Richard Lester, and Donner was not happy with the result. It took years, and a change of guard at WB to do it, but he finally got to release his intended cut of the film. And The Donner Cut is in every way superior to what Lester did in 1980. It's almost the same situation, just without the suicide of the daughter.

    I've not actually watched it yet. I've been awaiting the English dub (and a theatre release in Canada)...but I hear it's insanity and sets some things on their ear.
