  • The Snyder Cut is coming, and so is the internet

    I can’t tell you how hyped I am for all these people to finally shut the fuck up. 

    Why does it bother you so much if you aren't interested in it?

    I'm excited to watch it because of all of the horrible personal things that happened to the director while it was being made.   

    It's not hurting anyone, a lot of the footage is already there, I don't see what the issue is.  
    I have to take issue with "it's not hurting anyone", because it is objectively hurting people. There was a bunch of rampant harassment and toxicity coming out of the #ReleaseTheSnyderCut crowd, directed towards anyone who disagreed with them. Actually releasing the cut teaches those people that these tactics work. Toxic groups in fandom will learn that if they whine and shout loud enough, they'll get what they want, so they'll keep on doing it, every time they don't like something.

    If it sounds like I'm being ridiculous, check out this brief Twitter thread from January about Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalkerhttps://twitter.com/broderick/status/1212766342664859650  This is the direction all large fandom discourse is headed in: baseless conspiracy theories, tribalism, and harassing stan armies mobilized against directors, writers, actors, producers, journalists, or whoever else they've decided is responsible for them not getting the exact film they wanted. Putting out the Snyder cut only adds fuel to the fire.

    ...and now to sit back and watch the slow motion train wreak of what has become a free folk twitter rant, my job here is done. Please plan to return next week for the Game of Thrones episode two spoiler preview, review if I an fortunate to get an advance viewing. That should be really fun.

    Alright, been putting together some theories as to the true identity of Huge, here's what I've got so far:

    a) A.Ron, under an alt account, as an elaborate troll
    b) Jim, under an alt account, as an elaborate troll
    c) A certain banned user of this forum, under an alt account, being completely serious
    d) The butcher
    e) The baker
    f) The candlestick maker
    g) Just some random person we don't know
    h) George R. R. Martin
