Yeah, it's a copy of that.

@12 I might have misunderstood your post, but I did read it. It seemed to me that you did not want to look up "postmodern", yet you didn't know what it meant. Quote: "When something is postmodern, to me-it means something that is from the future, could not be theoretically made, but engineered into something that fits the present." I don't think that this matches the general meaning of the term, or maybe I just don't understand what you are saying.

Thus, I suggested you review the standard definition before critiquing it's use in this review, which I think was a pretty standard usage.

I would summarize the term "postmodern" as "self-referential". Based on Paul's summary (I have not seen the movie), the movies is self-referential, and thus, "postmodern": Example 1) Michael Keaton (best known for playing Batman in the 90s) plays an actor who is best known for playing a superhero in the 90s. Example 2) "Birdman" sounds like "Batman" and stars the star of "Batman". These are self-referential because anyone who knows about movies will not be able to avoid seeing the connection between "Batman" and "Birdman", and it is apparently intentional.

By the way, you need to develop a thicker skin, like Batman.

Or maybe you are making a clever, post-modern parody. Your suggestion that I am a "quintessential passive aggressive person this town doesn't need anymore" sounds like a reference to Batman kicking the villains out of Gotham!

Have a good day (seriously).

What about for someone who never, ever sees this kind of movie but is from Seattle? Will I appreciate it, or is it too cringe-worthy to watch (no offence, and am sure it is a good movie for the genre)? Maybe rental-category?

@7, you should probably just go look up what postmodern means.
Oct 21 Jude Fawley commented on Well, That Didn't Take Long: Mark Driscoll's Comeback Tour Began Last Night.
That final quote about not believing something you read about someone you've never met is a pretty song argument against believing in Jesus and reading the Bible. I don't think he's thought through what he's saying very much.

Now, if these cops can't perform their jobs and feel safe doing so, while following basic use of force guidelines, they should quit in protest.

Wow, sounds like a movie about an insufferable man.

What an idiot. He's very smart, I'm sure, but totally clueless. He showed his true perception of the situation, them found out it was the wrong thing to say.

She sounds like some sort of narcissist. Which would be okay, actually, except she also sounds like she has no common sense about how to handle different situations, and that's a bad sign.
Oct 2 Jude Fawley commented on Tao Lin Accused of Abuse and Literary Theft.
Considering that he's a writer, I am surprised how hard it is to parse Lin's quotes. Who said who who doesn't want to talk about it more than who has? Maybe this is just a rushed off email but still...

Any Twin Peaks jokes?
