  1. How did Roe prevent anyone from deciding how to live in their state?
  2. Has Putin bothered to justify his insistence that no other countries can intervene in Ukraine "or else", while he accepts boots and hardware from Belarus?
  3. Well either you don't know your sex positions, or you aren't talking about the bear scene from Supertroopers. Either way you are wrong.
  4. What even would Rand's purpose in the show be if he isn't the DR? Virtually his entire arc in the books is fulfilling prophecies and reconciling himself to his fate and dual identity. So what would they do with him?
  5. There's a tighter shot, I think when Paul is on the ground, that I'm thinking of. And, to be clear, I'm not taking a position that it should be viewed as problematic. I just noticed a depiction that i knew some people may take issue with.
  6. Right. The gorilla chest beating was a little on the nose as far as hitting on racial stereotypes. Honestly I noticed during the film and then immediately moved on, until I recognized the point that zorral made being missed. And, fwiw, the expressing of rage was completely apropos for Jamis, in the moment. And GCB is certainly a way that humans, being primates, use to express fury, or frustrated aggression. All I would say is that I noticed and thought it was... a bold choice.
  7. I think ya'll may have missed zorral's point, which was not, "was it narratively appropriate to have the Fremen character, Jamis, beat his chest and growl like an angry gorilla?"
  8. I'm waiting to hear that Bela is a named character with a rock solid contract for the actor.
  9. Right, which just makes Stilgar's approach to the situation even more curious. Like, he knows who they are, and would be fully steeped in the mythos, so why would he think to dismiss, let alone lay hands on, Jessica? And what was it about being BG that enabled Jessica to wrap him up so handily? Are martial arts part of their skillset? Did I miss her using The Voice, or was there some other/new aspect of her weirding ways that wasn't effectively made apparent in the scene? Because it looked to me like she just outclassed him, but he reacted as though she'd used some mystical hoodoo on him.
  10. In the scene where Paul and Jessica meet the Fremen, Stilgar attributes Jessica besting him to her weirding ways and it isn't clear to me at all what she had done to clue him in to her abilities beyond just being a more competent fighter than he'd anticipated. What did I miss?
  11. The monkey does look pretty good, tbf.
