Looks expensive. Do I look like I just robbed a bank?
Scratch that, you'd need to rob like 10 banks to afford that.

The monks had to eat pine cones and drink poisonous lacquer sap for at least two years to be able to self-mummify. It's basically religious suicide. Ask A Mortician has a great video about this if you're interested in learning more.

Well, self-mummification was a thing among monks in Asia. It's outlawed in most places now for obvious reasons.

... without being too restricted by the character's personality as outlined by the previous movies.
So yeah in principle I agree, I just don't really see how James Bond of all things became the point of contention. That guy was played by so many different actors and his personality also changes with each movie apart from the few very basic traits. So I think it would be quite easy in this case to just say it's a code name and make a movie with a female protagonist.
Then again, I guess that would kind of ruin the point of James Bond which has always been oriented towards straight male audiences, I mean some of the old movies are just straight up sexist so I guess making this a progressive franchise wouldn't really sit well with the audience. (2/2)

Lol thanks, I hate it when people just blindly down vote without giving their opinion, it doesn't help the discussion at all.
I suppose you're right. I too am tired of all these remakes that have been popping up lately so some fresh franchises would be welcome. I just feel like this is a situation where you can't really win – either you remake a character, that gets people pissed. Or you make a new one with the same archetype and genre, that will get you accused of copying another franchise. The second one I think is especially perilous to do because if you're an indie filmmaker using the same archetype and concepts as a big franchise owned by a big company, there might be lawsuits coming at your head. And we know how trigger-happy some companies are with lawsuits... I suppose the best solution is to make a spin-off with different characters in the same universe, that way you get the publicity that comes with a big name and you get to use your ideas... (1/2)

It's usually not the teacher's fault that the school printers suck ass. In many cases they do this to make tests more interesting instead of always doing multiple choice or whatever. But they definitely should take the bad quality of the images into account. In my experience they usually don't because one or two kids managed to guess it correctly so "the entire class just must've not been trying hard enough".
I still don't envy teachers though, it is an incredibly ungrateful job and you need to be really passionate about it not to implode after some time.

Honestly I'm the timid (read: boring) friend and I feel the same when I overreach my socialization limits.

Ha! That comment is gold.
(But yeah James Bond is indeed an asshole in general. Not to mention the straight up rapey stuff from the earlier movies)

@xvarnah I agree that it's better to make a new character than just cash in on an existing franchise, BUT I feel like people who say they want to remake superheroes and famous male characters into female characters may have a point in that most of these characters were created at a time when strong women weren't really a thing (unless they were fighting fucktoys) and those characters already have a well established franchise behind them, so it's a lot harder for new female characters to get popular because they don't have an existing franchise behind them and also might get accused for trying to rip off these existing male characters.

You're welcome, though for anyone who isn't a fundamentalist nut this wouldn't be a compliment.

I use a cup so for a brief moment about twice or three times a day my toilet/shower looks like a murder scene and I hope it makes Satan happy

I haven't seen the movie yet (wait has it even come out yet?) but I think he looks okay. Personally I think it'd be cooler if he didn't have the blue paint on him and just wore blue clothing like on that one magazine cover/poster/whatever it was (it circulated around the internet for a bit a few weeks ago), but I quite like the design, especially that little bit below the necklace that looks like it's just holding on its own (it's probably part of the necklace but I like it anyway) and the translucent tattoos on his arms.
That said I'm against unoriginal remakes in general so I don't have high hopes for this. I just feel a bit sorry for Will Smith because I feel like he's going to get a lot of undeserved hate just because he can't fill Robin Williams's shoes, but I mean c'mon, nobody can.

1: It's an old Jewish story that didn't make it into the biblical canon for reasons specified above
2: Read the story. Adam tried to rape Lilith. Just because it was in the brief moment before the servers went up doesn't mean it's not a bannable offense, only if the admin wasn't such a dick.

Yup same.
I have some features I could flaunt but damn would I not feel comfortable actually flaunting them.
I was used to wearing pants for the first like 18 years of my life and even now wearing a skirt feels so... naked. Like I fear that people can see my underwear when I walk up the stairs, and I generally don't wear any shorter skirts than mid-thigh.
(I'm not a religious modesty nut I just don't feel comfortable in revealing stuff)

No
Evening was made before Adam since while God was creating the Earth, seven days passed
Not to mention it's just a bullshit story so I don't know why anyone would want to use it as an example of anything
