"Movies have gotten worse" Would you agree or disagree? Why? 🎬

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I have the impression that this generalizing statement refers first and foremost to the mainstream Hollywood setting. At least I can't think of any comparable ensemble that is so frequently in flux and subject to criticism.
But I would basically differentiate between different film producers, film types (real or animated) and countries. Personally, I watch very different films; German, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, French and don't leave it at the USA alone.
Moreover, this criticism should refer to different parameters of film production: Plot, directors, script, excessive use of CGI effects, camera work, acting performance, etc.
"Back then" technology was different and you didn't have as much leeway in development as you do today.
Miyazaki, for example, in his Ghibli films wants to preserve the time-honored tradition of hand-drawn production, which involves a lot of effort and work, but achieves a beautiful effect, which is why he got into a dispute with his son, who wants to resort to computer animation and modernize the whole thing.
I would look at the whole thing more differentiated and not necessarily put the earlier film production as the ultimate in the film industry and rather put it into perspective with the present.
Nowadays, a lot of garbage is produced that is just supposed to look fancy, but only serves as entertaining entertainment (see "Ready Player One"). However, there's nothing reprehensible about that either. Not every film has to live up to a standard of profundity and artistic excellence. Sometimes shallow entertainment is desirable and good, only it should be criticized appropriately.
There are enough modern-day treasures that shouldn't fail on the premise that movies are invariably bad these days; especially if you move away from the Hollywood bubble and look at movies outside the mainstream.

Ram-Don from Parasite (Korean Movie) it's no particular reason, it just looks really yummy. And Butter Beer from Harry Potter, because I tried many dishes from Harry Potter but I never tried Butter Beer and they make it seem so special that I kind of wanna know the original taste of that beer.

besides japanese and korean, which other languages of music do you listen to?

Ooo there's a lot that I listen to like Chinese, Indonesian, Maori, Romanian, German, French, Spanish, Icelandic, etc. despite not speaking their language😊 it's not even just the pop or mainstream, but a ton of traditional/folk music as well😄
Here's a Nordic lullaby that I just recently discovered (the vid is also so calming) :D

German native, English fluent (daily conversations) - plus a bit of Russian, 2 years in school, mostly basics; Korean, good basics with a lack of vocabulary (and still missing some grammar like adjectives); Mandarin, 4 months of casual learning, more basics left than I thought it would, as I just found out while watching a Chinese series. xD
It could be more, it could be better, but I'm satisfied right now. I'm able to read 4 different alphabets fluently and to understand basic conversations. It makes me able to connect in a very unique way and I'm enjoying the improvements I make without putting pressure onto me.

Polecisz coś na netflixie?

Sweet home i Nevertheless (jestem w trakcie oglądania). I wcale nie polecam tych dram przez aktora... Zamierzam obejrzeć wszystkie koreańskie dramy z netflixa w których gra Song Kang, ale to trochę potrwa. W sumie mogłabym jeszcze polecić A Korean Odyssey, mimo że nadal tego nie skończyłam. A podchodziłam do tej dramy jeszcze zanim miałam netflixa. Jestem okropnym widzem.

Any Korean fantasy world. I read a lot of fantasy manhwas and i love the worlds so much. Imagine having mages and magic, royals, nobles,elves , dwarfs, those magic academies etc. It's pretty exciting to me and I'd love to live there.

What is your favorite accent? 🙂

AdrianaRafaela98’s Profile PhotoAdriianna Rafaella
I enjoy many of them.
I'm only thinking of places where English is the first language or a common vernacular, not places where people acquire it in school or business.
My favorite accent would be British. They just sound educated and sophisticated, and they actually use proper words the way the English language is supposed to be spoken. Of course they have their colloquialism just like a lot of other languages but they didn't butcher the English language.
Eastern Asian accents. Especially on girls. To be specific are Japanese, Korean, and Chinese accents. I don’t know, I just find them really cute.
English accents on anyone are charming.

Do you try to make it a rule to study French or whatever language you're learning and devoting your free time towards improving a language?

Not anymore! France for the French! Travel is mere luxury-. You can't really immigrate anywhere, so I do not bother learning. The lockdown isn't ending in my lifetime! Au revoir Paris.
There's plenty of people on here from all around the world whom I'm sure would be happy chat in their mother-tongue. It's a great way to improve your vocabulary.
My plan was to devote 30min a day for language improvement (through listening to podcasts, learning new grammar stuff) + try to watch movies in that language every now and then, buuut I couldn't stick to it. ''Life got in the way'' but I really only have myself to blame for it. I'll try to start over; Studying a language, to me, means watching TV shows in that language. For example I found that my French had become a bit rusty, so I watched "La Forêt", a French TV show.
I'm not as rigorous with it as I'd like to be, but I often use my commute time on the way home for it. Just to keep the wheels turning in my head so to speak. I do anki/flashcards sometimes during my break when I'm not talking with Ginny and on my offdays.
Basically, how much time I devote is essentially random (sometimes none, sometimes hours) and how much I feel like doing. I guess the key is to keep doing it regardless. I do think sticking with 1 or 2 until you've mastered those makes more sense though. I don't really have the answers to doing it right, it's just how I do it.
The longer part is do it until you brain fries, which when you start to learn a language happens in 1-3 hours; you just kinda shut down. There's like a multiplier effect the longer you go as well, meaning your more likely to retain things the longer you study every day.
Whatever is best for you. I don’t really set times, I set tasks. I listen to one 15 minute audio lesson and review my Anki deck then level up once on Duolingo. I’m not going crazy on it right now as I have school to do as well.
Currently learning Latin, Spanish, and Japanese. They actually work pretty well together, because Latin and Spanish make it easier to learn the other, Japanese has a similar grammatical structure to Latin, and learning 3 different languages has made my mind better an analysis in the few weeks I've added Spanish and Japanese to my list and helped me stay interested in language learning and not get burned out. However, it is worth noting that I tend to focus on one for a few days to a week, and then focus on another one, and so on. This isn't really on purpose, it just shifts according to my interests at the present.
One. Korean. I plan on learning it for life. Maybe down the road (like a decade at least since i'm a beginner) I can pick up french again. I took french for six years in school and did really well because I engaged with it and did self study outside the class, so I'd like to pick it up again. But even with that foundation;

Oh she looks so sweet, I am sure you're enjoying your time with her. the comic is called it's mine, a korean webtoon. I have also finished reading vagabond.. finally xD and planning to read "erased". Don't know if you've already read it or watched its anime adaptation.

Alexandrite170691’s Profile PhotoRokeia
I'm not familiar with either of this, sadly. So, vagabond is a finished manga? I should probably finally try and move past the few first chapters...
Didn't read much of manga lately (in fcat, I have a pile of unread comics, some of this were bought half a year ago or more). Tried Beastars, it's nice, not much different from the naime so far, though.
The last manga to impress me was "Madam to Oyuugi", but that probbay gives away my, so to say, unhealthy sence of humor.

Does anyone else absolutely love Korean movies but hates the fact that the words aren't always synced properly with the video? Netflix made me mad about kingdom that show was super good and actually scary.

I think I saw that one. Yeah that sound synching is awful. Why wouldn't Netflix get that fixed? I couldn't finish a few shows like that because it drove me nuts. Lol 🤦🏼‍♀️

Okay! I'm watching this tv show, actually a Korean series, and through out the storyline I keep getting these sinister vibes. I watch and watch till the end, and if you're someone who watchs tv, you ought to be familiar with the post-exposure thoughts, and thus I have some of these thoughts, and for this specific show God knows what a sick bastard the writer was. The show actually had some of the most problematic people I ever came across, with emotional disorders and all... I hope people who watched this show got to understand what they have been to.

Do you have a memorable road trip story?

In 2017 my family and I decided to vacation with my wife's girlfriend who lives in Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Along the way we visited Washington D.C. and went sightseeing. We saw the following sites i.e. Washington Monument, Jefferson Monument, Lincoln Memorial, FDR Memorial, WWII Memorial, Iwo Jima Memorial, Korean Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery, Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, JFK's grave, RFK's grave, the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum, United States Botanic Garden, the Congressional Building and the Whitehouse.
If you have not visited Washington D.C. I would highly recommend it. Give yourself at least two days and make sure you wear well made walking shoes.

What is your favorite dish that you learned to make in 2020?

SuYuk... It's Korean pork belly, marinaded in doenjang and steamed in the juices from onion, sweet apple, garlic and bay leaves. It is the simplest hands off dish, has a fantastic flavor and you get a bonus of par cooked onion and garlic, just begging to be carmelized in the same pan with the residual pork fat and served along with or as part of another dish.
I haven't been following many recipes too closely, but I did a couple recently. I made the Mbakbaka that was posted a while back and will definitely do it again. The other dish we made recently is Mar y Muntanya from Joyce Goldstein's Mediterranean: The Beautiful Cookbook. We did it with rabbit and prawns. It's a nice herby tomato base with a picata of almonds, hazelnuts, garlic and bitter chocolate mixed in at the end. The nuts gave it a really nice texture and the chocolate gave it a deep rich flavor.
I know it is not something that amazing compared to all the other awesome things on here but I finally learned to make a tasty tomato pasta sauce. As a 12 year old who has almost no cooking experience learning to make that was the best. Thank you to all the people on this subreddit. Reading your posts and reading the comments to my post I was able to make something that I love. I made some chili oil, ginger scallion oil, shoyu tare, found some really good noodles, nailed my ajetamas, been using better than bullion for broth. It’s better than anything in town. But then again I live in a Midwestern America Asian food desert. Experimenting with braised beef noodle soup- nothing works as well as beef for that. It’s worth the hassle to find Sichuan peppercorns.
My personal favorite is frogmore stew! (aka as beaufort boil, lowcountry boil, and a few other names). Its corn on the cob, smoked sausage, new red potatoes, and shrimp all boiled in water with a bunch of old bay seasoning or crab boil. It ends up being nothing like an actual stew because its not watery at all after you strain it but it is absolutely delicious. My favorite easy weeknight recipe is chicken fajitas. Cut up some raw chicken, throw some olive oil on a pan and get the pan warm. Throw the chicken on and throw some spices on the chicken. Then once chicken is about done throw some onions on there. Then just grab the rest of the toppings (lettuce, tomato, sour cream, cheese, salsa) and by that time the onions should be done. Takes probably like 15-20 minutes start to finish. If you want any more I just spent my last three years in college cooking just about every night and I can hook you up with some more of my favorites.

Quel est ton plat préféré ?

I love talking about food, lol. It is really a broad question that you ask though, so excuse the long post. I really adore Indian food in all its magnificent forms and variety, and will have to say it is my ultimate favourite (that is, if I have to pick a regional/country cuisine). Then, I also love Asian food, specifically Japanese, Chinese and South Korean dishes and recipes. I also have a soft spot for many Italian and German dishes, and there's no breakfast better than a full English one :D
Indian cuisine - varied and regional, all the different kinds of (what we call) "curries", stews, breads, pancakes. Dishes like Rogan Josh, Biryani, Vindaloo, Butter Chicken, Litti Chokha, Rajma Chawal, Dahi Vada, Pulao, Bhuna Ghosht, Korma, naan and roti, etc. Japanese cuisine - being very Western here, but I love good sushi and sashimi, miso soups and odun noodles. I also love Hayashi rice, onigiri, yakitori, omurice, kakuni, etc.
Chinese - so extremely varied and regional, but from ramen to different kinds of stir fries, dim sung, century eggs, hotpots, dishes like Kung Pao, Peking Duck, Dandan noodles, Mapo Tofu, braised pork belly and ribs, and of course the Westernised dishes of Chop Suey and Sweet & Sour pork. I think most of my favourite Chinese dishes are of Sichuan cuisine origin. Korean - these are some of my favourites: seaweed soup, Oritang soup or stew, Maeuntang fish soup, Kongnamulbap (rice with bean sprouts & pork), kimbap and Kimchi. Italy - all kinds of pasta, risottos, breads and pizzas, cured meats (hams, salami, sausages) and cheeses. Their desserts are also to die for i.e. gelato (ice cream), panna cotta, tiramisu, biscotti, etc. Germany - eisbein of course, and also dishes like rouladen, prinzregententorte, rippenbraten, schnüüsch, many of their sausages like bierwurst, blutwurst, leberkäse, bratwurst, mettwurst, etc. and several of their sour milk cheeses. Ok, I just love food, from all over the world. One of the most entertaining foodie programmes I've seen recently was Ainsley Eats the Streets, a different country's street food every episode. It's my Sunday morning ritual. I make hash browns, bacon, sausage, tomato, mushroom, onion, and a fried egg stacked on a plate with as much hot or iced tea as I care to have, while I catch up on my video games.

Favourite song at the moment?

“Riot Van” by Arctic Monkeys, one of their older pieces, but I only recently started listening to the album and the song gives me a warm feeling that very few songs ever give. It's Korean but I have yet to find any other artists in any language with this kind of chill, so fit to walk home just after a sunset, after getting off a 30 min bus ride, taking a deep breath of the brisk evening breeze from a long day of work, and looking up, seeing the stars waking up to in the night sky.
He's a garage house artist, and his music makes that clear. He's also worked on the soundtrack for Lethal League. My absolute favorite song from him is Ordinary Days V2. Synthcity and Smooth Arrangements are also really good.
Haha, I absolutely love that kind of thing. I hate trying new music usually, but when I accidentally run into music that I find myself loving it's the nicest feeling. I recall hearing someone playing Paolo Nutini songs in my neighbourhood years back, and I specifically searched him out to ask who the artist was, that's definitely my favourite accidental music I've found lol.
Not my favorite because I can never choose a favorite, I just think everyone needs to experience it at least once. In the dark, with headphones. It’s an out of body experience.
I've mostly been listening to Sonic Youth's album Daydream Nation, which no matter how popular is, I still believe is their best album: a perfect blend of experimentation and accessibility, and a good starting point if you're considering checking them out. I've been listening to their song The Diamond Sea as well, which just puts me in a state of trance, despite half the song being Thurston and Lee messing around and making noise with their guitars lmao. One of my favorite bands for sure. I listen to an unhealthy amount of Phoebe Bridgers and Lana Del Rey, but some months ago I listened to Fiona Apple's Fetch The Bolt Cutters and fell in love immediately! Now I'm getting into her other albums and I liked everything so far, so I highly recommend her music!
Anyway my favorite song at the moment is Faith Healer by Julien Baker, it has that kind of "driving down the highway with the windows down" feeling, can't really explain it but I think that's awesome!

hi :) I'm sure you get asked this a lot, but I haven't found a working answer anywhere on the internet so I am here to annoy you about it: how do you acquire video files that aren't downloadable in hd anywhere (e.g. viki videos)? If you'd prefer to answer privately here's my twitter handle: amunamuu

Hi there. For this question its really difficult to answer. It depends on what drama that you are searching for. But for convenience here are the list:
1. Korean drama (bl drama included) - dramaday.net
2. Thai bl - this one is scattered. For example :
if the series is aired on linetv, you can go to copyvid.com and paste the link of the video.
If via wetv, I usually try to find it on dailymotion (account like BLS Ori is such a helpful channel to find the series but over time the series got removed because of copyright so make sure to download the series asap when it come out)
3. Japan drama (bl drama/ movie included),
You can go to nya.si and fond any torrent link
Or go to nosoba page (justpasteit/nsbc2)
4. For chinese drama without logo, you can download via torrent on domp4 website
As for the rest, you gotta find it yourself. That's all I know. May it helps :)
