Is it ever explained why a human would want to transfer their memory to another body when logic dictates that is not you anymore. as in you can't transfer consciousness from body to body, it doesn't work like that.

This is where any story based on this premise falls apart for me. I think SOMA handled it quite well.

Does cooking alcohol count? because that's a harder choice.

1. Watching people talk about and dissect Star Wars on the internet.

2. Empire Strikes Back.

3. A New Hope.

4. Return of the Jedi.






20. The rest of them. Because the only reason anyone talks about them is that they have Star Wars in the title.

I wanted to jump in after looking a the nonsense that was Destiny 1 from afar.

Anyone got a lowdown on what the issues that people are having with this game?

The wow thing happened way before and i'm not sure it has anything to do with the current incarnation of it.

Here is the context of what it currently means:

The Cult of Kek, also known as the Church of Kek, is a satirical religion based around the worship of the ancient Egyptian deity Kek[4] (also spelled Kuk or Keku), an androgynous God of darkness and chaos who is often depicted as a frog or frog-headed man in male form or a snake-headed woman in female form. On 4chan, the character Pepe the Frog is often considered a modern avatar of the diety, who uses ancient Egyptian meme magic to influence the world, often by fulfilling the wishes of posts that end in repeating numbers.

There is some egyptian god who is a frog that is called kek so it helped create the whole thing.

Some people use it for nefarious reasons and some people just use it as a spoof of religion, just like any symbol it can be used by anyone and for any reason.

Okja 2/5

It seems that all Korean directors that go to Hollywood are doomed to fail. I don't know if it's the language barrier or something about the Hollywood pipeline but none of the Korean directors have had a good movie thus far (Maybe Snowpiercer).

Way overlong and meandering scenes where not much happens and none of the conversations matter.

The characters are all cartoon people and extremely unlikable, even the small girl!

The dumbest part though, is the main conceit: a corporation creates a super pig that can feed the whole planet and replace the current farm animals.

How this is turned into an evil plot i don't know...they are literally solving world hunger.

Paths of glory.

Probably one of the best war movie ever made. The ending is just devastating and get me every time.
