    I actually just watched the first half of this movie for the first time tonight. Had to pause it to let my dog out and now go to bed. Not sure about finishing it. That’s just me.

      Two words: Chekov’s Buttplug

      You’re missing out. It’s a slow boil, but then it kicks into gear. Not to mention that everything else at the beginning makes sense and has callbacks. It’s such a thrilling ride!

      It takes a solid 45 minutes before it even begins to get rolling, and by the end it’s absolute pandemonium. It’s wonderful.

      That movie is such a rollercoaster you owe it to yourself to finish. It’s just an accelerating spiral of weirdness.

        Idk after a certain point the weirdness just becomes an excuse for tricking the Academy into giving awards to a movie that delivered half of its emotional journey through exposition.

        And it worked, dammit, I DID want a refutation of nihilism told through anal dildo kung fu, it turns out.

          Yeah but I think if you average out “direct exposition” and “mind-boggling WTF” You come out in a good place.

      Here’s what you do: watch act 1 sober, then when act 2 starts you pause the movie and take three big ass bong rips and press play.

      Honestly, it’s fine. If the humor doesn’t click with you it could be a struggle.

      It didn’t click with me, either. I think it’s fine, but it’s a weird one to have been the mainstream hit that it was.

    I did not like Alan Wake 1 and hated that movie. Alan Wake 2 is just a GPU benchmark to me.

            To state my opinion? Do you just want a circlejerk?

              I just don’t see why you bothered to comment. You haven’t played the game and don’t intend to play the game, so you’re really not in a place to leave a constructive comment.

              I obviously can’t stop you, nor would I if I could, I just don’t see how your post could be construed as constructive to the discussion.

                But there’s no rule that all comments has to be constructive.

                A comment can be meaningless opinion (like this one)

              I don’t watch sports. I don’t waste my time in sport related posts saying “I don’t care, I don’t watch sports.”

      Doesn’t really seem spoilery to me at all. Alan Wake - and Remedy in general - is very into surreal weirdness and world fuckery. He’s mostly talking about audiences being receptive to pushing creative boundaries.

      I am genuinely confused as to how that’s a spoilery headline. Genuinely.
