I KOTOR 2 that wasn't a hot garbage fire in the second half of the game because it wasn't finished and just pushed out the door.
I love Obsidian but goddamn they cannot catch a break when being given time tables.
Also, there's never going to be a Jade Empire 2 or remaster and I will forever hold that against BioWare.
I got a mod on Steam, I think, a few years ago that was a bunch of restored content for KOTOR2 and I reaaaally enjoyed the playthrough. It wasn't perfect, by any means, but def made the game a bit better.
I will never forgive them for no Jade Empire 2, especially as it seemed they WERE working on one and then ditched it. It was probably my favorite Bioware game.
Completely loved Cruella. This film was serving up looks like it was going out of style. It was also shot in a really engaging way and had great tunes, so considering how heavily fashion features it really delivers. Aesthetically speaking I give it a 10/10.
I liked the story though that probably isn't going to be the selling point for most people; it had a good balance of dark and edgy with fun and campy. The plot is kind of Money Heist meets Gossip Girl? Devil Wears Prada meets Ocean's Eight?
In summary if gawking at cool dresses and fierce femme fatales is your bag, you're going to like this movie.
I love when I make up bullshit about my character's background on the fly in a scene, and then someone expresses interest and asks follow-up questions, requiring me to act fast to research the topic at hand.
That's how I learned the origins of so many types of window panes. And how far you would need to fall to guarantee you break your legs if you land on your feet. And that the French phrase for "incredible boredom" is ennui inouï, and it sounds hilarious. (On-we een-we.)
I don't know if this got lost in the shuffle (shuffle, noise, vitriol), but I never minded the idea of anyone saying, "Hey, this thing is awesome and we want to feature it." I think it's a great community-building idea, and I hope you keep doing it. Even if people disagree, they will know what you think is good.
The big explosion over ideas was because of the prerequisites.
My youngest child came home with a pilgrims and Indians themes project in kindergarten this year school year in WA state. Which was horrifying to me on many levels.
Public school instruction in the US is extremely fractured, not only state by state but district by district and school by school. (My older kids' elementary school would have NEVER done that, and also at the time was the main site for a native american students and families group for the district, and those parents very generously shared resources with the teachers, students, and other families about PacNW history and current culture!!)
There is such a strange deviation in how we teach people on a state-by-state basis. I spent my pre-teen through high school period on Maui, wherein we did explicitly discuss American colonialism and the annexation's effects on the modern day. That said, we absolutely did not discuss anything in lengthy detail that solely affected the mainland. This made it surprisingly frank, like in US history the teacher said "The Civil War was about slavery," and that was that. When I was in early elementary school, I lived in Georgia in which the textbook used was like "here are the reasons why states' rights are important..." so you can imagine how much unlearning happened in middle & high school there.
