    SO much bigger.

    And yes, I'm aware that making friends is an important part of the film industry. I can very easily make myself the most sane person in the room. I have no delusions of auteurism, and my only guiding philosophy is to make it work, because anything can. If I ever built up any clout though (and I mean WHATSOEVER), I will go full Kubrick immediately.

    See, selling myself is one of the things I'm best at. Combine that with genuine expertise and watch out.

    But I am an armchair expert in the worst way. I've spent years absorbing film theory, screenwriting rules and formatting, tricks I've learned on the Internet, and my only actual practice has been with stop motions.

    But I just have a drive. I need to do something with film. Even if I'm just a key grip or an assistant, I just need to.

    Oh, you're a TKA (Teacher's Kiss Ass)?

    Just joking. Man, how's film school? I'm nearing the point where I need to decide if I'm gonna blow a whole bunch of money on that or if I'm gonna need to blow all that money on a bunch of "Trial and error" (shitty short films seen by a few thousand at best on Youtube).

    You're a teacher now? "Professor SMOG?" I like that.

    You need to flaunt that. Tell people you have a degree in telling them that the Transformers movies suck. Watch them tell you that there's no real expertise on the subject of film; what the movie forum has taught me is that narrative craft is a myth!

    Five was a guesstimate. I do pretty much the same thing. They don't really have distinct identities in my mind, just a blob of hate and vitriol calling themselves "victims". Sorry, but Boo freakin' Hoo. Somebody on the Internet is questioning your taste.

    And it is pornographic. They're just indulging themselves, and there's nothing wrong with that. The problem comes when they get wierdly defensive and cagey about it. We should just be more laid back about our porn. I know I am, because I feel no shame in admitting that every time I write porn, my autocorrect changes it to pornhub because of how much more often I write that.

    Because there are two of us and like five of them and so we should just give up. It's entitlement, pure and simple. We're calling out their pornographic impulses, and they don't like it, so we're the assholes. Even though we're just doing what they're doing (much more coherently, mind you) and advocating something much less reprehensible.

    If I didn't think my opinion was better than yours, why would I even have it?

    But apparently I'm trying to "win" discussions. I'm... Not quite sure what that even means but it's been thrown at me a bunch so apparently it's some crushing, argument destroying insult.

    I'm also apparently trying to "debate" instead of "discuss". That's a new one, and I'm not quite sure what the distinction is there.

    Well, it is a thread in the Movie forum. The level of discourse is automatically handicapped.

    You seem disappointed that no one did though... You called us philistines...
