Wow. I have neither seen the movie nor read the book. Very good example though. There's a certain power that a writer has when they're able to make their audience feel some emotion to that depth-- anger, heartache, whatever it may be. Don't you think? I'm actually interested in the story now. Thank you for sharing.
ANOTHER THING THAT PISSED ME OFF ABOUT THAT MOVIE...It was a really good and well-done movie, but once you start fucking with time like time travel or perceiving the future, it's all bullshit. I instantly lose my "suspension of disbelief". In this case, I was furious because 1) I appreciate good science fiction, 2) I have a BS in physics - just like the husband/father chracter, and, most of all, 3) I had invested 2 emotional hours in this film and it was suddenly thrown away with that bullshit "twist" about time. I felt ___I____ was raped.I get angry whenever I think about this movie and even more angry about everyone who thinks its beautiful or the twist ending is greating. No one ever really mentions the impact on the husband/father as if all he is is a sperm donor in some sick masterplan she was informed of by talking to the Heptapods.This guy did an interesting article about the movie when it came out.www.cinemablend.com/.../arrival-ending-6-burning-questions-were-still-thinking-about
Yes, that's exactly what I mean. You're left wondering why the hell he chose to do it. At least in books, you generally read the character's thought process in their before/during/after actions and there is SOME clarity. So frustrating!

You didn't mention the specific comedian so I'm wondering if that was intentional.Initially it sounded like a biography but leapt into some sci-fi. Sounds interesting but I'd have been thrown off by that too.
Totally intentional, It wasn't a biography it was there attempt at fiction, but I deliberately decided to not mention the author, I mean that reflects badly on me. That's essentially me saying that I think I'm being a nice by not slagging someone off but that my opinion actually makes any difference at all. I come across as humble but really it suggests a hidden arrogance lol
Hey you!!! Haha I didn't even imagine that would happen in a video game but now I can see it perfectly.How does he transition to a badass? Is it out of need to survive?
As time goes on in the game he acquires more skill, connections money and better weapons and armor. He learns social graces appropriate for the time and generally stops acting so dorky. In the beginning of the game you end up having to fight the town drunk for money he owes. You can barely do that successfully. As time progresses you’re able to take on multiple heavily armed and armored opponents and win... though it takes a lot of training and up grades to get to that point.
It’s not so much out of a need to survive but he’s taken into the service of a Lord and is sent to accomplish tasks for him... as well as numerous side quests for others.
I enjoy that show too. I'm not as familiar with the characters.
Very true. And the book is usually a better experience!Or they choose an actor that you can't stand. I LOVED the book Water for Elephants. Hated seeing Robert Patinson play the lead. Ughhhh
Ha so agree... It's so frustrating lol
Second mention if Tyler Perry! He's in trouble! 😝What about Stephen King?
Stephen King is batshit crazy. His books are typically 10 times crazier than his movies. For example, in the book “It” there’s a moment where the Losers club is wandering the sewers in search of Pennywise the clown. The kids get scared and they all panic. So Beverly, a 12 year old girl who was a victim of sexual abuse decides to sleep with every single one of the boys IN THE SEWER to calm them down. Not only is that completely unrealistic and completely insane, what on earth compelled this man to write about a child orgy in a sewer with a man-eating demon clown on the prowl? Another example is “In the Tall Grass”. I’ve never read that one, but Netflix made it into a film. If you don’t want spoilers, then stop reading here. But a woman is literally fed her newborn baby. Literally the moment the child was born it is killed and fed to its own mother. I get that Stephen King is a horror fiction writer, but the depths that this man is willing to go is insane.
Holy effin shit.I remember reading about the orgy scene that never happened in the movie (probably for the obvious reason). That's nuts.
Ohhhh that would be an awesome career! Is that what you're heading towards?Tyler Perry writes funny and serious!
Nahh but its what i shouldve majored in
It would be so fun to work on a movie script or set! There are so many jobs that go into it.
Yea i talked to a film editor and he said you gotta be in the biz for like 5-10 years before you even get remotely close
You can't be a movie buff without finding flaws in something...So. Sarcasm?
I just love everything. And everyone. I smoke a lot of weed. I'm hungry.
Well that's just beautiful.
"I'm such a victim so I better be a dick too" oh bite me!!Sorry, riled up now.
Lol I'm not familiar with Wattpad!It's frustrating when you learn the character and then suddenly make a huge, outofcharachter change! Ugghh Lol your riled up response made me laugh because that's how I get too!
Yessss! That's essentially what happened in a book that I just read. I was frustrated with the time invested!
I totally agree. It would be even more frustrating for someone who was reading to get to that point and then be so disgusted that they stop
Dumbass. Heard in in Red Foreman's voice.
FUCK YEAH!!! ;)
Worse than that is how the murderer doesn't capitalise on this and walks slowly after them 😆
Who the hell downvoted an answer like this?Same here! All. The. Time.
omigod I just noticed that :( eh whatever. It's usually movie characters that don't get with another character that makes me mad
Which character were you frustrated with? Or was it the author?
The entire premise that the male character does so much for her. I mean he freakin spends years building her an entire house, and everything else he does and yet she hardly does anything for him. Just seems like 95% -5% his effort vs her effort.. that’s not reality.
So the author
