See it's these kinds of things that make me want to shelter myself from the internet (apart from here of course). The hardcore 12 Years fans especially are borderline unbearable. They literally just stomp there feet and frown whenever a different films wins anything. The anger towards O'Russell especially is something to behold.



I know this is always my go to for internet arseholes, but nothing matches the fallout from when Crash won best picture. The level of crazy from Brokeback fans was through the roof. My favourite comment was from a teary person who swore to make a cattle-ranch in her heart for the characters.

Yeah it's a weird one. I was thinking The Comic Shack might be the best place for it but I'm not too sure. Where the hell are the mods when you need them?


I'd say Lists. It actually says "Post your lists here", I've had mods argue with me on that before though.

The same day, one person who had been to see WOWS (and had reluctantly enjoyed it) claimed that it was a film about greedy capitalists exploiting the vulnerable, made by greedy capitalists to exploit the vulnerable (which means, by that logic, there's going to be a lot of films you'll have an issue with). The aforementioned person from the other post then chimed in that this is why he should go and see 12 Years A Slave instead, before I pointed out that it's distributed by Fox.

I dunno anymore.

I still can't believe people can watch WOWS and not think the characters are scum, or that everyone involved think the characters are scum. I think some people would have been happier if Leo kept having a little angel and devil pop up on his shoulders to argue over his actions.

This was my argument with The Bling Ring. Oh, Coppola doesn't explicitly show that these are immoral people, she must be on their side then.

I'm so happy people are being morally confused by Wolf and not spoon-fed morals. It may result in a lot of anger, but at least we know Marty comfortable still doesn't give a fuck about leading the audience by the hand

Yeah, and yet I've seen a few people who were like that with The Bling Ring but were saying what you were saying about WOWS.

Seriously, it would've made my year if Franco had been nominated at the Oscars.

I actually made a Facebook post the other day asking for a moments silence for the lack of Franco nomination. A girl commented and suggested I watch Trash Humpers. I've never been more weirdly attracted to someone in my life

As interminably boring as Spring Breakers was, Franco was easily the best thing about it.

Not fair beacuse you posted in the middle of the night.
Under the circumstances I'd say mid-day the same day is pretty good.

Music lists go in Audio though. And book lists go in books - and we've had comic/graphic novel lists in the Books section before so I'd certainly say there. The only odd one is TV because it's also visual - but even then, the main lists still go in Small Screen.

And if we are being pedantic - it DOES say all lists in here. BUT Lists and Top 10s is specifically one of the Film Forums. Look at the front page

But its general Art and not just comic book. It would also not find much of an audience in Books.
I still think Off Topic.

I've only just realised that there are TV lists in lists. Why arent they in Small Screen dammit?!!!!!!

To be honest I think Lists would also be fine. My suggestion would be Lists or Off Topic.

We've never had any list in Off-Topic although we do have the Theatre thread there.

I should fess up - I assumed we were talking comic books because that was mentioned. Looking at Garv's original post does widen it out a bit, although there he does specifically mention comic art. WHo knows - maybe a list in Off-Topic would give it a bit of a gee up? And fine art is technically off-topic from every other named sub-forum!

Go with Shool and put it in Off-Topic or put it in Comic Shack - your choice. We're happy either way and will sort it out in A51 (or move it back if someone shifts it for some reason!).

Thanks. I'll probably end up posting it in Comic Shack because y'know, it's all arty and stuff.

Well ok if you dont want anyone to look at it.
If you want people to see and comment, I would still say Off Topic.

Your choice of course since I have no idea what the list will look like.
