    When was the last time the US raised federal taxes, during the first Bush administration? Incidentally, we wouldn't be having this conversation right now if a government-funded research team hadn't invented the internet.
    Well why does Meg keep bringing up corporations? For state taxes that Amazon actually ends up paying? No its the federal taxes that grab the Canada headlines.

    Duke should move to India where there’s still a caste system.

    He’d love it. It’s exactly what he wants.
    Third world countries aren't exactly my thing. So no, I dont think I would.

    Why do you always bring up how you hate poor people so much, and think anyone who has nothing and wishes things were different is “entitled”?

    To you, poor = lazy. And that’s such a horrific viewpoint I can’t even begin to sympathize with that kind of world view.

    That the discussion includes some asides from We Love Amazon thread feels fitting somehow.

    Just curious, where in my posts do you get these profound statements. "hate poor people" / "anyone who has nothing is entitled" / "poor = lazy" / and just the statement "poor".

    For all the "republican spin talk" on MC, this takes the cake when it comes to spinnnn. This is spin zone to the MAX.

    Last I checked Duke is at least a moderate GOPer so no one should be surprised by any of his posts.

    Does anyone (still) use Letterboxd?

    Thinking of starting up my account again & I'm wondering how/ why people use it. Is there a trick to it being a doubleplusgood experience that I'm missing?

    I use it. It is excellent for keeping up to date with the general consensus for a film from people whose taste you trust. (Pick who you follow well.) Also a good way of keeping track of what you have seen, though I use an Excel sheet for that. Add people read what you write occasionally!

    (90+ = canonical, 80-89 = brilliant, 70-79 = strongly recommended, 60-69 = good, 50-59 = mixed, 40-49 = below average with some good points, 30-39 = poor, 20-29 = bad, 10-19 = terrible, 0-9 = soul-crushingly inept in every way)

    Yeah, probably my most visited website. I love how easy it makes it to keep track of what I'm watching. I use the average rating of movies to help guide what to watch next. Overall I find it a visually stimulating and easy-to-use representation of my movie watching life. Of all the websites that have been around that help you catalog and rank your movie-watching, it's far and away the best.

    One (minor) downside that I can't figure how to shake (other than just to watch fewer movies and care less about them) is that I have this creeping sense of gamification in the way I think about watching movies that's directly tied to juicing my stats on Letterboxd. Not to compete with others, but to impress myself mostly. Nevertheless, it's a great site and I'd love to be able to follow you on it.

    Quote Quoting Martin Scorsese
    When I was in England in early October, I gave an interview to Empire magazine. I was asked a question about Marvel movies. I answered it. I said that I’ve tried to watch a few of them and that they’re not for me, that they seem to me to be closer to theme parks than they are to movies as I’ve known and loved them throughout my life, and that in the end, I don’t think they’re cinema.

    Some people seem to have seized on the last part of my answer as insulting, or as evidence of hatred for Marvel on my part. If anyone is intent on characterizing my words in that light, there’s nothing I can do to stand in the way.

    Many franchise films are made by people of considerable talent and artistry. You can see it on the screen. The fact that the films themselves don’t interest me is a matter of personal taste and temperament. I know that if I were younger, if I’d come of age at a later time, I might have been excited by these pictures and maybe even wanted to make one myself. But I grew up when I did and I developed a sense of movies — of what they were and what they could be — that was as far from the Marvel universe as we on Earth are from Alpha Centauri.
    continued: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/11/04/o...se-marvel.html

    I had guessed that his response would come earlier, and initially wondered why he spoke out now, weeks after the initial story broke.

    "The Irishman" is in limited run now and premieres on Netflix November 22.
