re: What is the difference between a 'movie' and a 'film'? - TheTideMustRoll
A movie is made to entertain you. A film doesn’t give a shite whether you are entertained or not as long as you receive its message. I love both of these titles, but I illustrate my point thusly: [i]Interstellar[/i] is a movie. [i]2001[/i] is a film. ...

re: Dave Grohl on how his Queens Of The Stone Age gig almost broke up Foo Fighters - TheTideMustRoll
I don’t know, the first Foo Fighters album is pretty fricking badass. It had a really unique, odd sound that is nothing like the rest of their catalog. I owned their second album, and it had some standout songs, but it was much more arena rock than the first one. I never bought any of their others as...

re: Bama fans, do ya'll claim 15 MNC's, or 17 with 1930 & 1941? - TheTideMustRoll
I have no freaking clue why we chose ‘41 instead of ‘45 to stake our claim to. ‘45 we could at least make a decent argument for, although the Army team that year is generally considered one of the greatest teams of all time. ‘41 is inexcusably bad. With our history we leave out legitimate years to c...

re: Democrat plan to protect illegal alien criminals from deportation & change America - TheTideMustRoll
The hell are you talking about? The issue isn’t “Why let these other people in, they commit crimes at a higher rate,” the issue is, “This bill specifically allows convicted criminals into the country.” Do you see the difference?...

re: Popular Vote/Electoral College argument - TheTideMustRoll
So, again, I ask you: in your “majority rules” proposal, what prevents candidates from running national campaigns pandering exclusively to the four or five most populous states?...

re: Popular Vote/Electoral College argument - TheTideMustRoll
People who argue for the end of the EC fail to understand that it is set up to prevent candidates from pandering to only certain high-population areas of the country to get out the vote in those places and stuff the ballot boxes for a win. It’s what makes it where candidates don’t run national campa...

The ‘84 election - TheTideMustRoll
I was just a kid for the ‘84 election. In the lead up to November of that year, did the media act as if they thought Mondale had a real chance? Or did they go ahead and accept Reagan’s reelection as a foregone conclusion?...

Why the Democrats are losing the culture war - TheTideMustRoll
Despite having some degree of control over most mass media outlets in the country, the Democrats are slowly losing the culture war. I think this is down to one key factor, and it was on full display last night. For all of their accusations against Trump about his use of hyperbole (and these are to a...

re: Fun times over on DU - TheTideMustRoll
[quote]an act of resistance resonates.[/quote] This really gets at the core of my hatred for the Democratic Party. Resistance to what? Too much freedom? They talk like we live in Khmer Rouge Cambodia. Set Trump aside and just focus on life in the US in the 21st century. What is it that people rea...

re: Give me your independent, arthouse, weird shit - TheTideMustRoll
[i]City of Lost Children[/i] and [i]Begotten[/i] are good choices. [i]Come and See[/i] is also excellent - a war movie, but a war movie set in a fever dream. It conveys the horrors of the Eastern Front far more starkly than any Western war movie ever could. Also check out [i]Un Chien Andalou[...

re: Is Axl Rose the Last Great Rock Star? - TheTideMustRoll

You don’t start a band because you don’t want to be a rock...
