    I don't know... Jonah comes off as too much of a braggart to fit Peterson.

    Yeah, I agree with all his points:

    1) Peterson is relatively mild. He says some weird things but he's not going to lead an army of followers to some sort of violent revolution. There are far more...

    What bothers me is that he is conflating two things... and that's what strikes me as deceptive, and part of...

    Ok. I hear you.

    I didn't know about his climate change talks till I checked them out on youtube now. Yeah, those are pretty loony. He keeps saying the climate scientists are driven by a political...

    Yeah, but it includes 'repeated use of wrong pronouns' as a form of discrimination or harassment.

    He was arguing against laws that compel speech. It's a very straightforward free speech argument. We do have laws cropping up (in USA and Canada) that make using the wrong pronoun an illegal matter,...

    Yeah, I mean I don't see the point... this is a pretty blatant direct reference to Peterson. Little attempt to mask it. So Coates must be expecting a backlash. Is it really worth it? I mean is...

    The artificial swagger walk that women do. It is soooo fake and cringey... It takes me right out of the movie.

    I can only say what works for me and what doesn't work for me. I agree with most of the examples mentioned (old Jackie Chan films are great action scenes... can see everything, great choreography......

    Interesting you mention Agatha Christie. When I read your post I first thought of Arthur Conan Doyle and Sherlock Holmes books... then I read online that Doyle has very flowery prose.

    cool! No, I haven't read it. Thanks for the suggestions!

    Very interesting. So we the reader wouldn't feel the tension if we didn't know exactly what the characters are thinking and that includes who the guilty and innocent parties are...

    I do like the...
  14. Dune novel - why did Frank Herbert reveal the traitor so early?

    I'm just finishing the first third of the Dune novel.

    I'm enjoying it so far, but I'm surprised by one thing. The first third of the plot involves a traitor in the House Atreides who is going to...
  15. cool! Thanks!

    cool! Thanks!

    Thanks! I'll check those out.

    I don't mind descriptions of characters' states of mind (although this wouldn't fit the screenplay style which is all show don't tell). It's the physical descriptions...
  17. Do you know of any novels that read more like screenplays?

    I like screenplays because they keep descriptions to a minimum. It's filled with dialogue and action... things to keep the plot moving.

    I find descriptions in novels generally extremely hard to...

    You're right it's a great premise. Here's two examples that used the premise before Groundhog Day:

    1. Short story "Doubled and Redoubled" (by Malcolm Jameson) published in 1941.

    I also recommend Marvel Unlimited.

    It seems current Marvel children's titles seem to be geared more towards young girls as the protagonist. I don't know if young boys would have an issue with...

    Reading Dune again after years. I remember not liking it the first time, but I'm really enjoying it this time. I think because I know some more background on everything after seeing a bunch of...

    For me the world of superheroes (at least Marvel since I'm not so familiar with DC) is so ridiculous that most of the time... attempts to make statements about the real world falls flat. eg: like...

    Ah ok. I haven't read enough Golden Age... the stuff I've read on MU (Captain America, Submariner) does feel campy to me, but not as much as Silver Age.

    So why didn't golden age Batman kill golden...

    I'm having the opposite reaction at least with regards to "superhero" comics. I'm disliking modern superhero comics more and more and preferring golden-age/silver-age. I do really like Ms. Marvel and...

    The fact that the films succeed by reducing the dark aspects is more impressive to me. I mean we already know the audience likes "dark".
