    Is Philosophy Useful?

    in General Discussion on 18 May 2014

    The thinking skills acquired from studying philosophy are definitely useful when applied to other areas, but its not useful if studied on its own - if "useful" is defined as something which promotes tangible accomplishments in the world. While it can be beneficial to the development of a person, it will not lead to actual advancements without the help of another science. I agree with Tyson on...

    in Microsoft Discussion on 14 May 2014

    What a legendary phrase. I don't think any company has ever used a lack of sales as an opportunity to brag. This will go down in history as one of the greatest PR spins of all time, at least in my mind. Of course the logic is terrible, but that's what makes it all the more epic. Playstation fan or Xbox fan, I think we all can sit back and enjoy this glorious spin with a smile. My only issue...

    Ah yes, someone mentioned Kung Fu Hustle. Great movie, probably one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. It's available for free on YouTube (in parts), so you have no reason to not watch it. Haven't seen Shaolin Soccer though....

    impertinence said: So, your issue is you didn't find it funny enough, and don't care about any of the other aspects of the movie other than the lack of obvious slapstick moments? All I can say is that of you don't find Walter Sobchak's rant in the coffee shop when he is asked to not swear so loud funny you probably won't like the humor in the movie. I think that scene is hilarious, and...

Many of the readers here at VGC are old enough to have been there...so it does have a special place in our hearts for being just a little different than all the other crap they release every year.

    impertinence said:I enjoy the Big Lebowski very much, and I also see a lot of people who don't like it. Typically the people who don't like it view it the same way you did, just at the surface. If you take no enjoyment from the quirkiness of the characters and just see the movie for the jokes expecting a knee slapper then I can see why people would be unimpressed. To me it's almost...

    impertinence said:I am tempted to ask the negative question, what is it that makes you think this movie is as shallow as a summer blockbuster comedy? It's almost incomprehensible to me that anyone who even remotely cares about movies would make that comparison, so an explanation would be grand. It makes sense treat a something as average by default, before actually adjusting based on...

Based solely on my experience of the movie, I would expect it to be the former. And if it's the latter,...

I think the problem with the movie is one of pacing and story structure, but the direction, acting, and writing is definitely above average. If you're looking for a great Coen brothers comedy, I highly recommend...

    Movie Recommendation Thread.

    in Movies Discussion on 06 May 2014

    I've seen two recommendations for "The Big Lebowski" so far. I'm going to go ahead and recommend you not to watch it. Movie isn't terrible, but it's extremely average - one of the most average movies I've ever seen, actually - and really not worth your time. I think most of the people who recommend it today do so because of nostalgia. Although it is possible that standards were so low in the...

    *Obviously sensationalist title intended to boost views and gamrpoints. **No spoilers in the OP, although future posts may have them** Short Story: I'm dissapointed with the movie and confused about the fans of the movie. A lot of people have told me that this movie was one of the funniest, most well-made films ever, but that alone is not why I'm confused. Normally, I would ignore such praise...
