Thor: The Dark World — What Did You Think?

Quakeulf Ham-handed love sequences ruined it (233 comments)

If it did not have the love sequences between Portman and Hemsworth it would have been *cough* worth it.

Leave it to Hollywood to make dialogue awkward and cringe-worthy. It got good once the action started rolling, but there really was no chemistry between the two lovers, and Kat Dennings' character felt so forced I felt uncomfortable in the chair.

Special mention to Skarsgård for doing perhaps the best scene in the movie in which he uses shoes to explain the coming convergence. It looks like he had a lot of fun doing that and he seemed quite relaxed and confident in his role, unlike Portman who seemed off the whole time.

Stephen Elop Would Pull a Nokia On Microsoft

Quakeulf Re:Please pick Elop.... (292 comments)

I really like reading about these people who can just waltz into a company and run it into the ground and then jump on to the next venture as if nothing ever happened.

I can do the same for a lot less money. Please pick me Microsoft, I am more economically beneficial! :3

Critics Reassess Starship Troopers As a Misunderstood Masterpiece

Quakeulf Re:self-aware sendup of right-wing militarism (726 comments)

It's always a good thing by the governments to play the left against the right because in reality it has become more of a divide and conquer strategy to make people fight each other instead of fighting the government. Just look at what public officials can get away with these days.

Saturn In All Its Glory

Quakeulf Re:Popularity of space stuff based on replies (75 comments)

There are more than enough amateur astronomers out there. Or so, I hoped. Did they all turn amateur politicians and armchair generals now?

Saturn In All Its Glory

Quakeulf Re:Popularity of space stuff based on replies (75 comments)

You make an excellent point. After moving back to Norway from London I found the skies are a lot clearer there in general and that made me more interested in what is happening outside the limits of our stratosphere. Sadly not many people get to see the starry sky in all its glory due to pollution, and I guess that is a thing that doesn't help your thoughts and mind.

Saturn In All Its Glory

Quakeulf Popularity of space stuff based on replies (75 comments)

It seems that the trend her on /. is to reply less to space-related posts, and rather indulge in trivial online debates over something that happened on Facebook and whether or not choice is a good thing for Android.

This disheartens me. I have logged in again after a long period of inactivity to state my interest in space-related posts here and I would like to see more of that and less of trivial drama that may or may not be related to stuff that matters.

I am prepared to be downmodded for this but I am a willing martyr to get the point across.

Startup Founder Plays Tech Press Like a Fiddle

Quakeulf Re:Template (135 comments)

Well, every niche that has article writers is that, unfortunately. Gaming press is even corrupt to the point they are being told to give good reviews to the games.

I don't trust journalism for good reasons. I wish I didn't have to but they are making it hard for me not to remain skeptical.

I think the Ouya has a real competitor on its hands now. You could say it's bog, like Sonic the Hedgehog.

Google Forbids Advertising On Glass

Quakeulf Re:Why would I want the Google Glass? (274 comments)

Proclaiming yourself to be a geek and then proceed to buy a hyped-up expensive product by a big corporation does not correlate. Want to be a real "geek" then watch anime, become a brony and get a dakimakura. Bonus points for going to cons. Extra bonus points for dressing up like your favourite character. Extra extra bonus points for ending up on Your cosplay sucks.
