Well, at least the character I really damn like got to the third and he's not even an antagonist of the show he is in. So I guess it's good enough. Shame about Claire though, really.
Pretty good idea that was. Entertaining. Good work on doing this. And yes, well done all participants except some of the mindless ones. You know who you are. I'd say it's a success, so I wouldn't mind seeing some more of those some time later.
That's a hard one though. Crime genre, and I believe you mean like detective genre, is the one that requires a lot of... logic!
We are low on logic most days here.
Well, not too late yet, really. We haven't really started anything important.
I got DC, Ecstasy, Jack and Gwynn there already, so you can ask any of them to add you to the group.
Hmmm... seems like a much darker one than what we saw in Godzilla (1998). May be a good thing. Good to see Ken Watanabe on the list - I like that guy. But I have to say - that sound effect they play over and over in that trailer... I swear, I feel like that sound effect is getting very old fast )
Alright. We have 1 admin and 3 mods. Should be enough. Thank you for volunteering and I will be making the group now.
Comparing to most previous matches, this one is damn easy. Makishima can't even be compared to the heavyweights we have on the first place match, and out of all top 4 we have, he is the smallest in comparison. So I will vote Alucard here. For personality, lack of mercy and his general attitude of 'let's kill everyone here'.
Well. This one is difficult for me. I know both of them, I know they both are damn good villains in a very different settings. And I actually don't really like both of them on personal level.
So. I can't really pick anyone here, so I will vote for Rebel to be the main retard of the contest and to scratch his embarrassment of a 'voting' from this.
Nice! I was wondering where the hell is that game! They were getting to a pretty damn nice bit of the story there too.
So, we have now the proper civil war on our hands.
I honestly can't confirm any of this, really, but if I am to believe the news - the actual fighting has started between separatists and the Ukrainian military. And I mean the fighting with actual shootings and all.
People in Donetsk region took over the administrative buildings. I wrote about this, I think. And now Donetsk region is operating with a sort of 'people's governor'. It's quite confusing and, as I do not live there, I can't really say who holds the power there atm. But separatists are strong there, and they created blockades, took over buildings and armed themselves.
Here I want to remind you people that at the Geneva meeting it was agreed by all participants that situation can't be escalated and every illegal armed force in Ukraine should be disarmed, amnesties should be given out and the problems we have should be talked about.
So, what did out government do? About right sector fucks, it did nothing. About separatists... they send the actual army to fight them. Yeah... you can probably see the inconsistency here.
I can tell you the reason though. See, you remember referendum in Crimea. Which ended with them going to Russia, right? Well, now Donetsk region states that they will not participate in presidential elections in Ukraine, but they will hold their own referendum the same as Crimea. And the important thing about it is that Crimea was autonomous republic already, it was a special case among all regions. But if Donetsk would actually hold that referendum and go separate from Ukraine, it will be a precedent that would likely make all other eastern regions to go separate.
So yeah, right now this situation is being dealt with not by talking, but with military force. Now, I said already that I can't confirm any of this, but there are talks about 10-20 killed on both sides, about civilian casualties, about military attacking Sloviansk city and retreating for now. I can't find any good video feeds, the only online videos from the region are of minor gatherings of people in bigger eastern towns. I have to say, though, what is happening right now is that unelected 'government' we have trying to hold the power they got by supporting armed civilians loyal to them and sending troops to attack armed civilians the are against them.
And seeing how now it's not rioting people with molotovs and police with riot shields holding groud agains each other, but people with proper firearms and military transports on both sides openly shooting for the kill, we probably now have the proper civil war here.
Wanna give us a summary?
No. And, you know, it's extremely well-known work. Goddamn movie is listed as the number 1 on imdb. Also.
Sometimes, there are good books, but we just don't want to read anymore no matter how good it may be...
That reasoning (and I use the word 'reasoning' very broadly here) doesn't really correlate with question about summary.
