re: Speaking of War films... - TheTideMustRoll
I've been wanting to see that movie for a long time. Where did you find it? To answer the question in your OP: even though everyone sort of knows about the movie from the incessant "Hitler reacts" memes, I'll still say [i]Downfall[/i]. It is easily one of the most incredible films I've ever seen....

re: Did Anakin fulfill the prophecy and bring balance to the force? - TheTideMustRoll
There's definitely some truth to this. [i]Phantom Menace[/i] is weirdly self-contained for a movie that is supposed to set the scene for a trilogy. ...

re: Official Battlefield 1 Thread - TheTideMustRoll
(Finally) unlocked the Chauchat last night. I like everything about it, except the magazine size. As a support player, I like to find a spot along the enemy's approach to an objective with a good sightline and set up with bipod extended. If I pick my position correctly, I'll run through a 20-round m...

re: Did Anakin fulfill the prophecy and bring balance to the force? - TheTideMustRoll
Not a good script, no, but Lucas ruined [i]Phantom Menace[/i] by casting such a young actor as Anakin. The script clearly intended for Anakin to be around 16. If he were, everything would make sense - the "meet cute" with Padme, his advanced skill with pod racers and robotics, the Council saying he ...

re: Did Anakin fulfill the prophecy and bring balance to the force? - TheTideMustRoll
I read an interesting take on this question somewhere that I really quite like, although it does depend on Lucas thinking years ahead when he made the OT, which is questionable at best. But, anyway, this theory says that although the Jedi obviously think they are the good guys, in their own way they...

re: Official Battlefield 1 Thread - TheTideMustRoll
I haven't gotten to use the siege howitzer or the trench raider kit yet. I'm still trying to finish up the LMG challenge to get the Chauchat. I'm only 5 or 6 kills with the Lewis Gun away. The Lewis Gun has grown on me. I'm not very good when trying to use the telescopic sight, but if you go pron...

re: Hidden gems (great shows that aren't widely popular, to be precise) - TheTideMustRoll
[i]The IT Crowd[/i] - Absolutely a can't miss if you enjoy British-style humor. [i]Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell[/i] - An excellent miniseries, especially if you have read the book. I do worry a bit that if you haven't read the book (which is very dense), you might be a bit confused, but I wou...

re: Should the Entente have invaded Germany at end of WWI? - TheTideMustRoll
You're looking at it from the "now" perspective. You have to imagine the scenario you propose at that moment in history. You're asking, should the Entente, when Germany offered what was effectively an unconditional surrender, turned it down and continued to fight? What would they have kept fighting ...

re: In the future sleep may be obsolete. - TheTideMustRoll
J.G. Ballard wrote a short story a few decades ago in which a group of men were selected as test subjects for a new procedure which eliminated their need for, and ability to, sleep. At first everything seemed to go well, but after some days had passed the test eventually resulted in all of the subje...
