”The films that have had the greatest cultural impact are not always the most exemplary. But for whatever reason, they seize the public imagination and run with it, often through a furious wave of subsequent mediocrity. Originally, former music video director David Fincher‘s ’Seven‘ didn‘t hold much promise marketwise, despite its inherent star power. Genre fans scoffed at the presence of Brad Pitt -- who was nevertheless no stranger to the dark side, with ’Cutting Class‘, ‘Kalifornia‘, and ‘Interview With the Vampire‘ already under his belt -- and the Tiger Beat set certainly wasn‘t going to respond well to the unglamorous characters and seedy set-dec.”
””But ’Seven‘ surprised everyone and spawned a wealth of imitations -- conceptually, stylistically and morally. Like it or not, it has become one of the pivotal genre films of the last decade.”
”The premise of Andrew Kevin Walker‘s screenplay is simple: a serial killemoral vigilante who uses the seven deadly sins-- gluttony, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and wrath --as his calling card. As detectives David Mills and William Somerset respectively, Pitt and Morgan Freeman are stock characters --the impetuous young rookie partnered with the jaded and tight-lipped wise-man-on-the-mountain-type (complete with recognizable literary name). Their performances fit the film, but are just components in a larger picture. Pitt tries too hard. The story is competently written but not especially clever.”
”So it comes as no shock that it wasn’t‘ to be Pitt, Freeman or even Kevin Spacey (playing the killer) who would prove the star of Fincher‘s thriller --it was cinematographer Darius Khondji ( ’Delicatessen‘, ‘City of Lost Children’ )and, to a lesser extent, Trent Reznor and the manufactured industrial aesthetic. Khondji likely owes a certain amount of debt to predecessors like Lars von Trier’s ’The Element of Crime’ and ’Zentropa’ --along with veteran chiaroscuro cinematographer Vittorio Storaro --but ’Seven’ unleashed monochromatic saturation as the new standard. Spanish ’Aftermath’ director Nacho Cerdà cited Khondji as inconsciously blazing a vital new stylistic path in Spain, with disciples like Alejandro ( ’Open Your Eyes’ )Amenábar, Jaime ( ’The Nameless’ )Balagueró, Juan Carlos ( ’Intacto‘ )Fresnadillo, and Paco ( ‘Second Name‘ )Plaza spearheading the New Spanish Fantastic shortly after.”
Seven‘ is permeated with darkness, but both its aesthetics and characterizations are essentially respectful throwbacks to grainy precedents like ’The French Connection‘, ‘Serpico‘ or ’Hill Street Blues‘ more than earlier genre efforts. Brown and blue hues wash over the frames and compliment the lulling sense of depression generated by the constant rain, the baroque Bach strings pumping through the library and Freeman‘s ticking metronome. Kyle Cooper‘s credit sequence alone would become the model for countless cultrate Hollywood thrillers and postmodern slasher pics.”
”The film‘s use if distressed typography and text-as-setpiece betrays its (somewhat forced) literary obsessions. Somerset‘s immediate familiarity with ecclesial minutiae and direful medieval prose finds a more realistic counterpart in the scholarly deciphering of the killer‘s cryptic messages. The end result is almost like a cinematic collage, which elevates the film to a standard appreciable to the trendy art-school-malaise crowd. Most importantly, though, Arthur Max‘s production design is distinctive enough to make it easily reproduced in lesser films.”
”Certain elements of ’Seven‘s m.o. --the inexplicable use pf 25-watt bulbs in all of the crime scenes, for example --are troubling, but the logistical sacrifice was worth it. The overall effect is one of relentless dread. One thing can be said about Fincher: He knows when to give you a payoff and when to hold back. The film‘s visceral excess further acclimatized the mainstream to unsanitized gore, while the less graphic scenes unbolted the imagination to a whole new realm of violent possibility.”
SEVEN‘ is simultaneously antiquated and apocalyptic in its sense of hermetic doom. Many reviewers place the film in New York City, although positive identification is deliberately avoided in favor of spatial alienation. Spacey‘s disturbed antagonist John Doe also seeks anonymity -- in addition to his self-ascribed nomenclature, he routinely slices off his fingertips to erase a key trait that makes him physically unique --but simultaneously challenges this anonymity with his high-profile ‘missionary work‘. He is methodical and calculated, but operates according to a faulty logic. In the end, perhaps Mills is correct in the assertion this his enigmatic quarry is ‘a movie of the week, at best.’”
”The unnamed metropolis‘ exhausted long-time resident (Somerset) expresses his regret over living in ‘a place that nurtures apathy as a solution.‘ And therein lies the film‘s moral stance; it is not John Doe‘s fundamentalist megalomania that Fincher’s subscribes, but to Somerset‘s quiet resignation, which is punctuated by brief flashes of disgust over a rampant nihilism. But when taken side by side, it‘s difficult to tell how Somerset and John Doe really differ in their opinions, and perhaps it‘s this paradox that is ’Seven‘s greatest triumph.”

2020.09.12 10:34 purplesatsuma123 Would I be able to use chargeback on my debit card to recover some money I paid for a hotel after I didn’t receive a promised free breakfast?

Essentially I stayed in a hotel in Somerset late August for an (extremely low budget) holiday with my partner. We specifically chose that hotel over others because it included a free breakfast even though it was a few more quid per night because this is still less than the cost of 2 cooked breakfasts for 5 days. The free breakfast is mentioned on the website I booked it on as well as the hotel’s personal website numerous times.
When we arrived, after paying, we were informed that there no longer was a free breakfast because of the pandemic. I understand that obviously but they didn’t give us any warning before I booked or even before I arrived or even before I payed... I can’t help but feeling like they purposefully withheld the information until I had already been scammed into paying to stay in a shit hotel for more money than other shit hotels nearby.
The receptionist said I’d be able to claim some money back, as had other guests, if I contacted their customer service line which I did.
To cut a long story short, after many frustrating interactions with their customer service staff, it does not look like I am going to be receiving a partial refund from the hotel directly. I have kept my receipts from the breakfasts I had to buy and have screenshots of the websites advertising the breakfast included with stays, as well as now in writing, confirmation from the hotel that they weren’t serving breakfast during my stay. Do I have grounds to make a chargeback for the expenses I incurred on my debit card?
I don’t feel like I’ve taken the piss by spending £4.50pp on breakfast per day but quite frankly I cannot afford to not be reimbursed for it and I only spent it after being reassured by the receptionist I’d be able to claim it back. I am quite sure they have committed fraud by selling me a product which did not include everything I paid for, and are also in breach of the consumer rights act.

2020.09.08 20:52 ottawan1 Is there something more I could be doing? (TW: domestic abuse)

Hello Ottawa --
I live in Hintonburg and have noticed a homeless(?) couple hanging around the last few weeks. They're often hanging around Somerset Square (where Wellington and Somerset meet).
I live on Spadina Ave and this morning, I was woken up at around 5AM by a woman screaming and a man yelling "I'll fucking kill you, I'll fucking kill you." My partner called the police immediately, but the screaming went on for a while. Eventually, they were right outside our house and I was able to see that it was the couple I had been seeing. He was continuing to threaten her and the one instance I saw, he grabbed her by the throat and threw her on the ground.
The whole thing was pretty violent and I'm quite shaken up by it.
This afternoon, I noticed they were together again in the park and she looked like she might have been walking with a limp. I can't help but feel like something more should be done. I know it's not really any of my business, but I can't help feeling that next time he could very well kill her.
Just looking for some advice! Thank you!

2020.08.28 10:50 theskyismyplayground 32 [M4F] #Somerset, UK - seeking partner in crime for immeasurable mischief!

Hey!
I'm stuck at work - send help! Some basics first! - Male - 32 - UK (SW) but location isn't an issue! - Friends, benefits, everything in between and beyond - Kitten-dad - Whiskey fanatic
Alrighty! Now that's out of the way - come and say hey :D I don't always bite! I'm a northerner wandering around Somerset - though have been living here for several years now! I'm a gamer, movie goer, lover of the outdoors and slight gym addict.
Ok! That's all the good stuff said, now for the not so good stuff! I have anxiety issues, probably why I find myself on here. Dealt with it since I was 14, in varying formats, with the accompanying episodes of depression. It's ok though. I know where I am, where I stand with it, what I can and can't do and... it's ok. I'm a big mental health advocate and try to help those who seem to be wandering down the same path I did!
I like to laugh, and more over to make others laugh. I'll say some pretty blunt things sometimes, but I never mean anything by it. Try me! Music - well emo/pop punk was my thing about 10 years ago, and to be honest I never really grew out of it! It's my easy listening. When I need something heavier, I'll lean towards some vintage Muse (#ShowbizBestAlbum) or some Killswitch Engage!
Movies - I'm a complete and utter sci fi nerd. In fact movies, books, TV shows - you name it. Space, space travel, space operas are my thing. My two favourite films being Interstellar and Sunshine!
You made it! Congratulations! I'm so proud of you.

2020.08.05 17:58 sdbedford7 Struggles after the effects of covid on the world

Hi all, apologies if this is the wrong place for this but I need to put this somewhere. This will be a long post so i apologise in advance.
I'm a 35 year old man in Somerset England. Over the years I've had some mental health issues but all pretty minor mostly about self esteem and confidence issues. About 3 years ago I git to a point where I was given medication ( unfortunately I cant remember the name ) this made me feel completely numb and after a while I came off ( as per instructions ) I later found that this particular drug was banned in the USA as people often had violent outbursts while coming off of the drug.
Since that time with the support of my family I have been much better and have managed to find myself a partner and fall in love , we got engaged and were due to be married in April this year .
Then covid came and as you'll probably be aware ruined all those plans, we live 3 hours apart and we were planning on moving in together after the wedding which both being traditional types worked well but as you've probably guessed this didn't happen either.
This whole year feels like constant heart break and disappointment. We have had other set backs with me being self employed and my wife to be being disabled we were finding getting a mortgage difficult and we then got rejected completely also work has been sporadic at best.
Fast forward to today and for the first time in 3 years I fond myself saying and feeling like I wished I could just sleep all the time , like there was no point in being awake.
I'm worried that I could go back to the dark place I was before which I obviously want to avoid at all costs!! I don't feel that I'm going harm myself or anyone else but I do feel similar to how I did when it started going downhill last time.
I'm a big believer in life being about maintaining a balance which works well for me and I'm a firm Christian so I pray often which helps too but I dont know how to contact someone to vent to. I don't want to vent to family as there are other issues they have for themselves.
Last time it took 6 months to get a call back from a mental health charity by which time I'd kinda sorted it out for myself . I know they are massively understaffed and underfunded in this country so I don't hold it as a grudge or anything but it does put me off calling them.
I guess this is part venting and part asking for some help? Sorry fir the long posts and thanks for reading if you got this far.

2020.07.29 22:34 kp313 Moving to Detroit from California

Hello Reddit,
I'm moving from Oakland, CA to Detroit this weekend. I'm originally from Detroit (born and raised on the Eastside) I haven't lived in Detroit since leaving for college in 2011.
Can you all recommend some great neighborhoods or apartments? I am 27 and my partner is 25. Our budget is $3k a month or less (so pretty generous for the area)
Thank You
EDIT: More context My company is allowing us to WFH indefinitely. I've been told that if I have to return to California it will not be until at least June or July 2021. My current rent in Oakland is $1350 for a bedroom in some random guy's house, and my partner was paying $2000 a month sharing a 2 bedroom in San Francisco. We were about to move into an 836 sqft apt in Oakland this Saturday for the low low price of $3800 a month. (Yes, it sucks out there) We were able to get out of the lease with some new Cali tenant law, specifically created due to rona.
So with high rent, small apt, and Rona we decided to come home and be closer to our parents. She's from Detroit as well.
My ideal situation would be $1500 for rent. I just didn't know where to start looking. I don't have much knowledge of the suburbs as I grew up really really poor on the Eastside near Denby HS. Like I've been to somerset mall once haha. And that was a few days before my graduation from MSU.
Not looking for anything "luxury," just somewhere decent, peaceful, and a chill spot to smoke weed in peace haha.

2020.07.13 00:54 Jd_2747 My experience today when I asked someone to give me a bit of space at Somerset

Today I went to go pick up something from a popular makeup store in Somerset. There were social distancing stickers on the floor marked so that it would be easy for people in line. The lady behind me was literally right behind me, breathing down my neck, so I asked her to please give me some space and indicated to the markers on the floor. She started mumbling "f***ing b***h" and refused to do so. I said, "excuse me?" and all hell broke loose.
This lady completely lost her mind and started screaming at me. She threatened to harm me several times, saying that she was going to call her daughter to do it. She said I was "disrespectful" and other things like that. This went on a good 5 minutes. The people at the store were trying to get her to calm down- I have to hand it to them, they did an amazing job of trying to de-escalate the situation. She wouldn't stop screaming and swearing. I didn't say one word to her other than what I mentioned above. It ended when I was let into the store. The staff were very kind and concerned about me, they even offered to call the police or security because they heard her threats, which I refused.
All because I asked her to social distance.
I just can't believe that this is the reaction when someone reminds you to adhere to the social distance guidelines. I am so ashamed to our country and this horrific climate. I just want to be safe and not get COVID or spread it to my family. I am currently separated from my partner because of border closings and it just feels like a perfect little microcosm of what is wrong with our country right now.

2020.07.09 00:19 Stevenasaurus Tales from Terra 9: Glasgow

Greetings, Dokutahs. Back at it again with this week's Tales from Terra. Hope you enjoy!
Tales from Terra 9: Glasgow
Verna clutched her hammer tightly. While the slums of Londinium provided a temporary safe haven from those that wanted to follow her, she knew she wasn't exactly welcome here either.
She could sense many sets of eyes watching her as she walked down the street that was paved during a time her family was considered great. It was a trade that made her uneasy, no longer being followed by agents and instead being watched by vagabonds and beggars.
From what whispers she could hear, the street urchins mostly spoke about the spots where two rival gangs fought for control of territory. The frequency of these reports was concerning, lending a feeling of anarchy among the slums. To top it off, there was one name she kept constantly hearing throughout many of the conversations along with the mentions of victory: Glasgow.
Frankly, with the troubles in Londinium proper, the constabulary were probably not concerned with what was going on which likely provoked an escalation in the conflicts. The constant movement among the people of the slums was likely a sign the gangs were fighting nearby. Verna hoped to be able to avoid the fighting and just kept walking; she just wanted a place to rest for the night.
Her eyes looked up at a sign hanging above a door belonging to a small corner shop selling everyday goods. She reached into her pocket and pulled out all the money she had on her, revealing several coins and a ten pound bill. It was definitely enough to buy another cheap bag of potatoes to last her, but she had yet to wash the taste out of her mouth and felt like getting something different.
She approached the door and opened it, making the bells hanging above jingle. The shop was an intimate spot with only a few aisles that were lacking in variety while a constant smell of plastic loomed in the air. Verna looked around for a moment before picking up one of the shopping baskets from a stack by the door and putting her hammer in it.
The Liberi shopkeeper at the counter hiding behind a cage of steel bars looked nervous upon her entry, but seemed to calm himself when Verna walked by with her shopping basket. “Welcome...”
Verna nodded her head and smiled at the shopkeeper while looking around. She headed over to a stand where the fruits and vegetables were and took a moment to see if she could find a ripe apple. The apples all didn't look appealing, but considering she was in a slum, she couldn't exactly expect the same apples she used to be able to ask for on a whim.
She placed two apples in her basket and moved onto the cereal aisle. The cereals were divided between sugary ones marketed for children and ones that were mostly for adult that were more filling and nutritious. Cereal wasn't really part of Verna's diet prior to the troubles, but they looked to be the most filling items in the store.
Instead of going for a box of cereal, Verna's eyes landed on a large bag of trail mix that was mixed with nuts, granola, and berries. What was even more special about the trail mix was the sale sticker on the shelf, making it half price.
Having to buy things for herself was an adjustment that didn't take long for Verna. While it was nice to have things brought to her upon a simple request, there was something relaxing about walking around a store and picking out what she wanted and looking out for the best prices. In a way, it was blissful.
In fact, it was strange how calm things were, even in the slums where laws were more like suggestions. After seeing the scurrying of panicked servants and guard regiments who had no idea who to point their swords at, it was jarring to see other shoppers browsing alongside her while the faint music continued to play overhead. Verna's whole world had come to a complete stop yet the world outside continued turning.
After putting the bag of trail mix into her basket, Verna checked the cooler near the counter for something to drink. Just like the rest of the store, there wasn't much to pick from and her only choices were a few select cans of carbonated beverages or bottles of water of varying sizes. Not caring for brand or price, she took the biggest bottle of water in the cooler and put it in her basket.
Satisfied with her pickings, she waited in line behind another shopper and eyed the rack of newspapers right by the counter. They all had similar headlines but Verna's eyes focused on the front page of the Victorian Herald which had a picture of royal guard regiments preventing journalists from taking pictures of the palace.
Royal Family Moved to Waltham Autumn Palace, Denies Rumours of Insurrection.
Verna sighed. If some of the family were moved to the Waltham Autumn Palace, that meant not everyone made it out and were now pawns in whatever game was taking place in the palace and upper echelons of Victorian society. A sense of guilt took over her, would those who helped her escape have better served those who couldn't fight?
“Are you ready to cash out?” the shopkeeper asked.
The train of thought had taken Verna's entire focus that she hadn't noticed the customer in front of her had already left. Verna stepped forward and put her items on the counter while still eyeing the newspaper. She decided a few pence was worth seeing what the public in general thought about the incident and placed a copy of the Victorian Herald on the counter.
As the shopkeeper rang up her purchase, Verna tapped the counter and looked around again. The racks of candy by the counter looked enticing and Verna picked out a lollipop randomly from the small jar they were in.
“Oh no...” the shopkeeper muttered to himself after looking at the date on the newspaper and checking his watch.
“What's wrong?” Verna asked.
The shopkeeper picked up the pace of his work and quickly put Verna's items in a plastic bag. “That'll be eight pounds, sixty-five pence.”
“Is something the matter?” Verna asked again while bringing out her ten pound bill.
“You should leave quick,” the shopkeeper answered while handing Verna her change.
Verna unwrapped the lollipop and put it in her mouth while disposing of the wrapper in her bag. To her surprise, the flavour of the lollipop was quite sour, however, the flavour quickly grew on her as the lingering taste of potatoes had fully given way to the lollipop. She took her hammer out of her basket and was about to leave the store when the bells above the door jingled. Two rough looking felines—one man and one woman—stepped into the store and eyed Verna for a moment. Verna paid them no mind and walked past them, feeling their gaze on her.
“Mr. Webley, you know it's that time of the month again,” the male feline said.
“We just came back from dealin' with a bunch of boys from the Somerset crew so I'm not in the mood to haggle. If anything, that should tell you Glasgow ain't nobody you wanna mess with,” the female feline said.
Verna paused at the door when she heard the word Glasgow. Her hesitation didn't seem to go unnoticed as she felt the felines staring at her now. Hearing the female's words triggered a train of thought she didn't pursue earlier. With the gangs wanting to stay as far away from any government and law enforcement as much as possible, perhaps they were the key to finding sanctuary amidst the chaos in her life.
Still, she needed some time to think about that thought and left the shop with her bag and hammer in both hands.
The bells above the door jingled behind her which meant someone was leaving the shop. Verna kept walking forward but kept the shop's door in the corner of her vision.
“We'll be right back,” the male feline said back into the shop as he was leaving with the female.
“Hey you, stop for a sec,” the female called.
Verna ignored the request and kept walking. She could hear them still following her and whispering something between themselves.
The male feline stepped in front of Verna and held his hand up. “Hold up. Haven't seen you around before. Who the hell are you?”
Verna took her lollipop out of her mouth. “Please leave me alone.”
“'Please,' now that's a word you don't hear much around here,” the female feline said while joining her partner in blocking Verna's path.
“I'm not looking for trouble,” Verna said.
“With a hammer like that you must be rollin' with someone. Who you with? Somerset? Devon?” the male asked.
“No one,” Verna answered.
The male shook his head. “Bullshit. Look at you, you've definitely seen some shit. And since we've never heard of you, you must be rollin' with one of the other crews. So who is it?”
“I'm telling you the honest truth. I'm not with anyone,” Verna said with conviction in her voice.
Seeing that the two felines weren't going to accept her answers, Verna suddenly stepped forward and pushed through both of them, throwing both of them off balance.
“You bitch! You know we're Glasgow right?” the female yelled.
Verna continued walking forward.
“Hold up...” the male feline said, Verna noticing him taking out a cellphone in the corner of her vision.
“Call Morgan,” the female said.
“Hey, Morgan?” the male greeted into his phone. “There's a girl we've never seen before ignorin' us. She- Well, she's not just some girl she's got this big hammer and wouldn't stop when we told her to- Well, we even got in her face and everything we just didn't tell her to stop. What? Yeah, yeah, she looks tough. Might need a couple more people here. We're on Highpoint right now.”
“You got trouble headed your way, might as well stop and answer our questions or there's gonna be a scrap,” the female warned.
Verna sighed and leaned against a lamp post. She stared at the two felines while putting her lollipop back in her mouth and swishing it around.
“You seriously want to fight?” the male asked, a slight crack in his voice.
Verna didn't say a word but briefly took out her lollipop so she could take a sip from her water bottle. Once she was done quenching her thirst, she put the lollipop back in and continued staring at the felines while swishing around her lollipop.
After some time, a car with faded red paint and several dents parked next to the curb and several other felines got out. Out of the entire group, two of the felines caught Verna's attention.
The first one was the driver of the car who was a short young woman with tanned skin and golden hair wearing a green jacket. The second was a taller feline with pale skin and white hair wearing a blue jacket, tight black pants, and red boots. Along with a general vibe of dread, the second feline's face featured an expression of excitement.
“Boss?!” the male feline called.
The white-haired feline crossed her arms. “This her?”
“Looks like it, her hammer's right there,” the tanned feline said while walking around the car to the white-haired feline's side.
“Boss you didn't have to come,” the female feline that trailed Verna said.
“When someone makes Ruby and Wendell nervous, they're someone I wanna see,” the white-haired feline said.
Verna crunched on her lollipop and disposed of the stick into her bag. “So you're the boss of Glasgow?”
“Name's Indra. Tanned shorty right here is Morgan,” the white-haired feline greeted.
“I'm sorry if Ruby and Wendell were rough with you. Let's start all over shall we? May we know who you are?” Morgan asked while squinting at Verna like she was looking for something.
Verna was taken aback by how polite the gang member was. Her facade of bravado faltered for a second which prompted a smile from Morgan.
“I'm not with any gang if that's what you're wondering. Honest,” Verna said.
Indra nodded. “Alright, I think you're tellin' the truth. But thanks to Ruby and Wendell here, everybody on the street's seen you disrespect Glasgow so I can't exactly just let this fly. How can I protect my people when people think we're a bunch of second-rate street trash?”
“You protect your people?” Verna asked, remembering what she was thinking about earlier.
“It's a rough world out there. The strong prey on the weak. But it's an alright deal for me; I'm always lookin' out for a great scrap so anyone wanting to hurt Glasgow's gotta go through me,” Indra explained with pride.
“I misjudged you gang types,” Verna said with a snicker.
Indra snapped her fingers which prompted a feline who rode with her in the car to open the trunk. “Anyways, enough talkin'. It's nothin' personal, but I gotta teach you a lesson.”
The feline brought out two weapons and handed them to Indra. They were serrated daggers with guards around the handles covered in spikes similar to Verna's hammer.
“Let's take this into this alleyway,” Indra said while gesturing Verna to follow her.
Verna sighed and joined Indra in walking down the alley into a small parking lot behind some buildings. She put down her shopping bag on the trunk of a parked car and stood in the middle of the lot as Morgan and the other felines formed a circle around them.
“You know, you could always join us,” Morgan said with a smile on her face.
“I've been running around from place to place, maybe settling down could be nice,” Verna said while smiling back at Morgan.
Indra laughed. “That's great! Once we're done here, you can call yourself part of Glasgow!”
“We still have to fight?” Verna groaned.
“Like I said, it's a pride thing. You can skip the hazin' if you fight me here right now,” Indra said with a smile while entering a readied stance with her daggers.
Verna also readied her own stance. While she didn't doubt her own strength, she didn't like the odds of her hammer going against Indra's daggers. Even if she could block one, the other would be open to knife her. She needed a way to even the odds, with such a great display of pride from Indra, perhaps that was the strategy moving forward.
Verna approached Morgan which prompted Indra to immediately step in between them.
“The hell you doing?” Indra asked angrily. “This is between you and me!”
Verna ignored Indra and smiled at Morgan while offering her hammer. “Would you mind holding this for me?”
“Umm... sure?” Morgan said while reluctantly taking the hammer.
Verna went back to where she stood and readied her fists.
“Oh ho ho! A girl after my own heart! Alright, I'll play your little game,” Indra said, her feline ears perked up as she removed her daggers and heading over to the nearest Glasgow member.
“Indra, I wouldn't do that if I were you,” Morgan warned, a smug grin on her face.
Indra nonchalantly passed her daggers off to one of her lackeys. “Shut it, Morgan. If it ain't a fair fight, it ain't a good fight.”
“Don't say I didn't warn you,” Morgan said with a shrug.
Verna smiled as Indra got back to her starting position and readied her own fists. The two stared at each other for a moment before walking circles within Glasgow's cordon.
“Come on... Come on!” Indra goaded, her fists eagerly swaying forward and back.
The other Glasgow members cheered and taunted as well, but Verna didn't take the bait and continued moving while keeping her fists up. She tried to remember the times she inspected the Royal Guards or Armed Forces during their combat drills and the few lessons she received before her parents ended them. Controlled encounters were probably not the best experience to use against a street brawler but it was all she had.
Indra inhaled loudly before rushing forward and launched a series of blows. Verna raised up her fists to her forehead while bending forward so her arms also covered her chest and abdomen from the relentless assault. Indra's fists had a choreography to them, one striking just as the other's momentum was stopped to prevent any moments of recovery.
Verna adopted a staggered stance with her legs so her right leg which she had back could support her despite how hard Indra's assault pushed. She felt Indra's fists stop and looked up to notice her clasping her hands together and bringing the massive combined fist down, aiming straight for her head.
Verna came out of her defensive shell and grabbed both of Indra's arms while shooting her right leg forward from her staggered stance to knee her in the stomach. The incoming attack was aborted and Indra stumbled backward as the knee came close to hitting her.
“Not bad,” Indra said while eyeing Verna for a moment.
Verna shook her arms, feeling the sting in them from constant attacks. “You've got quite a punch.”
“Well you're gonna have to get used to it!” Indra yelled before charging at Verna again.
Verna prepared her defensive shell again. The first punch from Indra was absorbed by her arms but she was immediately met with a punch to her waist which dislodged her from her defensive posture. Verna stumbled and immediately jumped back to get back in control.
Indra smiled and charged again, launching an assault that was much slower but aimed at specific weak points in Verna's defences. Verna threw up a hand or an arm, whatever she could to block the incoming strikes. The defence stood firm and Indra backed off and growled in frustration before returning to walking circles in the cordon.
Both Verna and Indra spent the next minute walking and catching their breath. Verna's chest pounded as hard as her fists while her breathing was as fast as Indra's punches. She wasn't expecting Indra to be an easy opponent, but she also wasn't expecting her to be this difficult; she could see how Glasgow managed to get such a fearsome reputation with someone like Indra at the helm.
Verna slowly regained her breath and noticed Indra was still panting heavily. The last few exchanges had seem to drain her which left her vulnerable. Not wanting to waste the opportunity, Verna clenched her fists tightly and rushed forward at Indra.
Indra hesitated with her eyes widening, giving Verna more than enough time to close the gap and throw her punch. She put as much force as she could and aimed straight for Indra's face. However, Indra regained her composure and covered her face with her left arm. Verna couldn't pull back and her fist smashed straight into Indra's elbow.
Indra stumbled over from the impact but stayed standing. Both Verna and Indra clutched their fist and elbow respectively, groaning from the horrific impact. Verna moved forward but was immediately met with a leg sweep from Indra that sent her to the ground.
Verna mostly broke her fall but was still scratched up from the pavement. She regained her bearings and got on her knees as Indra stepped toward her, towering over her like a lord over a servant. It was no use, her choreographed duels and fights from the palace were no match for a real battle. The drills certainly helped with her defence, but it would break eventually and there was still the matter of attack. If she wanted to win, she needed to fight like a street brawler, not a guardsman performing for tourists and locals.
Before Indra could act, Verna lunged forward between Indra's legs and pulled on her tail which made her yelp.
“You dirty motherfu-” Indra yelled as she took Verna's hand and threw it off before leaning forward and holding Verna's hair while winding up a punch.
With the rush of battle taking over, Verna didn't even think about her next move and shot herself up, shooting her head into Indra's chin. Indra groaned and stepped back while Verna rushed forward and took her by the shoulders as she arched her head back and sent it forward right into Indra's.
The impact lasted barely a second before both of them fell to the floor, groaning while holding their foreheads. Verna blinked quickly and shook her head while she tried to stand, her legs moving as if they were made of jelly. The feeling was quite unpleasant but she could see Indra was having the same problems. If she could just stand before Indra could, she could end the fight.
Verna clutched her chest as her heart felt like it was going to burst while her breaths had become desperate. Despite this, she was able to regain her bearings before Indra could even sit herself up. She took a few steps forward before falling to her knees and tackling Indra to the ground. To ensure Indra couldn't escape, Verna climbed over Indra and pinned her down.
Indra covered her face while Verna let off her own relentless assault of punches. Every once in a while, Indra tried to strike back between Verna's punches but was easily deflected.
Verna watched carefully how Indra tried to fight back, taking note of the opening that left a portion of her face exposed. She waited after a few more of Indra's attempts before finally exploiting the opening and going for the finishing blow.
Upon impact, Indra's arms went limp and immediately flopped off her face and onto the pavement while her eyes opened as wide as they could. The fight was over and the Glasgow gang went silent.
In her bloodlust, Verna winded up another punch. Before she could follow through, she felt a hand grab her wrist. She reflexively turned around and was about to throw a punch but stopped in time to see it was Morgan who had flinched from Verna's response.
“The f-fight's over,” Morgan said, trying to look stoic as she regained her composure.
Verna took a few deep breaths before sighing and falling off of Indra and onto the pavement. She almost wanted to laugh. Despite how much she was hurting and bleeding, she couldn't deny that she felt amazing, especially after winning.
Her head was still spinning from the headbutt and the bruises on her arms had become more visible. After a bit of time, she finally sat herself up and saw Indra was doing the same.
“Boss, you okay?” a feline asked as she knelt down to help Indra stand.
Indra threw off the feline's help and stood up herself. Verna also stood up and stared at Indra as she walked up to her. Her forehead had a giant bruise on it and was bleeding from her mouth, she looked to the side and spit blood onto the pavement before staring at Verna with clenched fists.
Verna clenched her fists as well and braced herself for a second round. However, that second round never came as Indra fell to one knee and bowed her head.
“Boss?!” a feline yelled.
Indra raised her head and looked at the gang member who talked. “Who the hell you calling boss?”
“What?”
Verna was just as confused as the Glasgow gang. The only person who wasn't surprised was Morgan who was staring with crossed arms and a proud smile.
“People are gonna find out I was beaten soon. They'll all be after us soon. Only way to keep the dogs back is for the one that beat me to take over,” Indra explained, rising from her kneel.
Verna gasped at the prospect of leading the gang. She only wanted to hide among them, she never envisioned taking control. In fact, being the face of Glasgow was probably not the best move when there were other forces in play looking to capture her.
Still, she had gone through this whole song and dance before. From the days of leading the games with the other noble children to forming factions within the palace to now, there was something about her that drew others to her, to want to follow her.
After some thought, she started to come around. The people that were after her had more than enough resources to find her, it wasn't whether or not they'd find her, it'd be how she'd respond once they did. With strong fighters and people who know their way around the streets people like Verna never walked, perhaps she would be safe after all. Still, she needed to be constantly on the move if she didn't want to end up surrounded and put the people who looked up to her in danger.
“Anybody got a problem with that?” Indra asked.
There was silence from the Glasgow gang. Indra eventually walked back to the gang member she gave her daggers to and brandished them, prompting nods and exclamations of agreement from the gang.
“Looks like nobody's got a problem with that, boss,” Indra said to Verna.
Verna kept a hand over the bruise on her forehead. “I wasn't expecting this, but I'll take command. Strength does follow strength after all.”
“Well, boss, we're waiting for your word,” Indra said.
“There's gonna be a few changes,” Verna said, “we're no longer gonna be a gang of thugs and brawlers. We can be more than that and I'll make sure that happens.”
“The hell is that supposed to mean?” a gang member asked.
Indra took off one of her daggers and punched the gang member who spoke up, immediately sending them to the ground.
“Show the boss some respect, asshole!” Indra yelled.
Verna pointed at another gang member. “You, stand up straight.”
The gang member paused but immediately straightened himself when Indra approached him.
“You guys are tough, but lack discipline. Once I've gotten a chance to heal up, we're gonna work on that. Now, take me to your hideout; I need some sleep,” Verna commanded.
The gang members bowed their heads and began piling out of the alleyway back to the sidewalk where Verna first encountered Indra and Morgan. As Indra and the other gang members departed, Morgan stayed in the parking lot and approached Verna, struggling to carry both Verna's hammer and shopping bag as she offered them to her.
“Congratulations. I had a feeling you were gonna win,” Morgan said with a smile.
“Really? Rooting against your own boss?” Verna joked.
“In a way, you were already my boss,” Morgan explained.
Verna froze and squinted at Morgan for a moment, trying to see if she recognized her from somewhere. “What do you mean?”
“I know who you are, My Lady,” Morgan whispered.
“What?”
“Come on, a girl that talks nice and can handle herself in a scrap shows up not long after there's rumours of stuff going on in the palace. The rest of the gang didn't figure it out, but I did,” Morgan explained.
Verna laughed, immediately groaning after her laugh triggered some pain. “I take it you're the smart one in Glasgow, huh?”
“My humility says no, but my objectivity says yes,” Morgan shrugged.
“Maybe one day the others will learn, but for now can this stay between us?” Verna asked.
“Of course, My Lady,” Morgan said while bowing her head.
“How long have you all been operating in the slums?” Verna asked.
“Almost a full year,” Morgan answered.
“I'd hate to have to rip you away from your homes,” Verna started, “but as you know, there's people looking for me so we can't exactly stay in one place.”
“Well, you are the boss, can't exactly go against your word if you wanna move,” Morgan said.
“Yes, I am the boss...” Verna muttered to herself.
“So where we going?” Morgan asked.
Verna sighed. “I don't know, we'll figure it out as we go.”
“Boss! Morgan! The car's ready!” Indra called from the street.
Morgan gestured with her head to leave the alleyway and lead Verna out. The gang was gathered around the car and waiting for them. Indra got into the back along with two felines while the driver and passenger seat were left open for Morgan and Verna. As for the felines who couldn't fit in the car, they were waiting on the sidewalk like an untrained security detail.
“So, boss, do you wanna be called boss or something else?” a feline asked Verna.
Verna stopped to think about it for a moment as she watched Morgan get into the driver's seat. “Call me... Siege.”
“Siege? With a hammer like that you should be called Sledge,” another feline joked.
“If you knew anything about me, you'd know it's a pretty fitting name,” Verna said while getting into the car and closing the door.
Upon the closing of the door and Verna putting on her seat belt, Morgan drove the car off and made a U-turn in the street. The car ride was soothing for Verna, the peace and quiet, the relative softness of the seats. After days on the run, days sleeping on grass or whatever she could scrounge together, and days freaking out over any little sound, she'd take a seat in a beaten down car any day.
The constant soft whir of the car was enough to make her doze off. Meanwhile she grew comfortable in the old leathery embrace of her car seat and seat belt, for a second, she almost felt like she was home. With such a blissful thought lingering, it was enough for her to close her eyes and finally get some good sleep.
END
Thanks for reading Dokutahs! Couldn't help but slip in some They Live references into the fight scene lol.
Unfortunately I haven't been able to keep up with reading operator files lately so I actually have no idea what next week's installment is going to be. So I appeal to you, to help me figure out what I'm gonna do next week. If there's an operator you know that has an interesting backstory from the files, just post their name and I'll have a look at the files (Don't worry, I'm not looking for you guys to write my next chapter for me I'm only looking for a lead). Anyways, see you all next week!

2020.07.07 10:40 Passionofawriter Advice on discouraging dangerous overtaking

Hi reddit,
I'm new to this subreddit, although I've been on reddit for a while and I've been cycling for as long as I can remember. I'm usually pretty confident on the roads - growing up in London, you kind of had to be to get anywhere before there were any segregated cycle lanes. I even spent a few months working full time as a bicycle courier, both on my normal bike and (after that was stolen...) on a big heavy cargo bike with three wheels and a box on the front.
I've always had my fair share of dangerous overtakes. In the city, I would sometimes take the lane to discourage it and if anybody got too close I would catch up with them at the next set of lights and have a conversation. Being a small woman, I know I'm not that intimidating and half the time these conversations went well and resulted in regular commuters on my route giving me space. Also it helps that in the city I was the same speed as or faster than traffic, so I didnt feel uncomfortable taking the lane.
During Covid I've been living with my partners family in rural Somerset. I've ran and cycled through the surrounding roads for the past few months with no issue. The countryside is gorgeous, the people are friendly. Generally everyone treats me well on the road, are patient and give plenty of room. But last Sunday, I went on my weekly ride and by the end of it had a good long cry because I was shocked. I lost count, but if I had to estimate I'd say about 20% of vehicles overtook too close for comfort - within a metre. Maybe 5-6% of cars overtook within half a metres width. All on single track, bendy and hilly country roads where the speed limit varies from 40 to 70mph.
I don't know if its the fact its July and no one can travel much. I don't know if suddenly people are driving that haven't driven in months. All sorts of bad overtakes took place - most just whizzed past too close, some unnecessarily so (no opposing traffic) and some because they didn't want to slow down to wait for a point in the traffic flow where they could. I had a couple of drivers overtake almost into oncoming traffic, where the opposing car had to do an emergency stop to avoid collision. The worst thing was convoys of overtaking cars, where if the first car overtook badly or just pretended I didn't exist all of them would. Some pulled out really close behind me, some almost clipped me and made me shit my pants and almost lose my steering. On average every 10 minutes on my 3/4 hour ride I got this sort of experience.
What I want to know is how I can stop this from happening. I feel taking the lane like I do in the city will just encourage aggression from these drivers, especially as even when I did try it people still attempted overtaking and usually this would scare me so much I'd stick more to the left than I usually do.
Is there anything I could do to reduce dangerous overtaking like this on country lanes? Does anybody else struggle with this, and have they found tactics which help them mentally with this, or even physical things like getting a horn?
TL;DR Ive gotten a bit scared on my last ride because of dangerous overtaking on the rural country lanes I'm used to. How could I prevent overtaking? What do you guys do mentally/physically to this end, and to keep yourselves from getting scared of taking the lane when it's necessary?

Making the Most of Festival Fun in Lockdown Ease – Kicking off with the Glastonbury Experience
Thank goodness, time for lockdown ease, with due care of course just in time for the start of the festival season ! So ok we still can’t get out the Hunters Wellies, tents & wheelbarrows and travel miles but we could venture into the garden or even stay indoors and re-create the Glastonbury experience this weekend. A festival that was so excited about celebrating its 50th Anniversary needs recognition for its amazing achievements, presenting some of the best in our world of music over the years. So set yourselves up, stock up on wine, beers, paper straws, loo roll, crystals and let’s do this. Glastonbury has changed the lives of so many people, visitors, artists and pilgrims from all over the world. One of these is Lui Krieg, known as King Lui in Glastonbury, crystal sound healer and musician and his inspirational story shows just how much this festival can mean to some.

Lui tells all…
‘ I need to go back in time 26 years ago, it was in 1994 when I was with my family, with my partner Tessa and my son Kai, we were up in Pudsey near Leeds visiting Tessa’s parents and camping out in the backyard. One Morning a newspaper got delivered the old way, it went flying over the fence and landed on my tent. I opened up the newspaper and there was a one page ad advertising the Glastonbury Festival in Glastonbury, Somerset. I had never heard about Glastonbury before, this was my first visit to England, I always thought I’m not going to come to England because I thought it was going to rain there all the time but that has changed because we have such beautiful summers here. Anyway, I opened the newspaper, I looked at the Glastonbury festival ad and I said “Tessa, Kai, we’ve got to go there. It’s happening this weekend”, and so we jumped into the van (we lived in a van at the time like travellers do), we drove down the M1 and we bypassed London and headed towards the A303, driving down the road, great rock music on and suddenly went over that hill and there was Stonehenge right in front of me, the first time I saw Stonehenge with my eyes and I was screaming, I was like “wow, wow, wow” and suddenly a magical journey began. And I think for everyone who drives from London to the Glastonbury Festival, this is the point of entry, passing by Stonehenge, being reminded of our ancient history and our magic land that we have here. So, driving on, suddenly coming into the Vale of Avalon and seeing this Glastonbury tour from far away and again I had a very very deep emotional moment and I suddenly recognised that I was coming home.
So, we drove to Pilton and we arrived at the gate, small problem.. we didn’t have a ticket for the festival. So, I talked to one of the guards and I showed him these magical creations that I do that are now available in Stone Age here right behind me because I create jewellery and I create magical objects. I showed him these and I told him we drove all the way from Germany just to come to the festival but now we don’t have tickets. So, what happened, believe it or not, he said “oh why don’t you drive up to Michael Eavis’farm house and ask him if there is anything he can do” and so we drove off and we knocked at his door and Michael Eavis opened the door and he invited us into his living room and we started to talk about our journey, about what we do with the jewellery and our magical tools and we were able to convince him that we should be part of this Glastonbury festival. So, he said “yes, go over to this gate and just tell them this and that and you will be in”.
There we were, inside the Glastonbury festival having the most amazing time. We set up a stall, I was selling pendants, we were connecting with the people. It was a brilliant festival, the sun was shining, no mud, everything was perfect.
So, after the festival was over, we decided to head down to Glastonbury town, and my god what a welcome it was for us. We arrived in the town, parked down by the tour, walked up the tour and something very special, magical, happened. On top of the tour, the first time that we went up there, I met somebody who was wearing one of my pendants that I had created and he had purchased off me five years earlier in India, in Goa. So that I took as a very very good sign. And then a magical story unfolded and we went down to the gallery at the bottom of the Glastonbury tour and we went in there and again we showed them our magical creations and they said “wow, you can have an exhibition here tomorrow”. And so we went there the next day and we opened the stall and our creations were so well received and it was such a beautiful day and we immediately realised that this is the place that we should make our home and that’s when we decided we’re going to go back to India, we are going to pack everything up and we are going to move to Glastonbury, the ancient isle of Avalon – probably the most magical place on planet earth.
So I want to give a big big thank you to Michael Eavis, the organiser of the Glastonbury Festival, the world famous amazing gathering of artists and performers and musicians’
This year will certainly be unique, but no doubt will be celebrated with due respect by all our amazing presenters, broadcasters and journalists and if we can have fun at home, in our gardens, social distancing wherever we need to – we can still have an amazing time and look forward to all the future festivals which we will cherish and enjoy even more.

2020.06.23 00:01 dazza12 48 M4F UK (South West)

48 years old, overweight (I'm selling myself well), but with lots of love to give to the right person. Based in Somerset but willing to travel up to 50 miles to meet the right person.
Always told I'm a nice guy, but everyone I meet doesn't seem to want a nice guy. Do you like nice guys? I'm considerate, gentle and will always put you first.
Recently divorced, have 3 children, only one under 18 who the ex-wife and I co-parent. Not looking for a mum for the youngest, but someone who will be there for her if needed. I'm a hard worker and have at least half of the week free as I work away from home. I work in IT but I promise I won't bore you.
I am a bit of a geek. Like Marvel, a bit of DC, into some weird stuff on Netflix and Amazon, like box sets, and I like my gadgets. You get bonus points if you're also a bit of a geek. I like to joke a lot, and it's good to be able to share in-jokes and geek puns with someone.
I have a range of interests and try to keep myself busy. I try to keep active too, but it's better to exercise with a partner.
What I have learned at this age is that there's no point worrying about things I can't change. So although I've gone through a few bad times in my life and have the inevitable baggage, I now know what's important and what I should focus on.
If you like to 'Live, Laugh, Love' - keep scrolling!
There's a lot more to know about me, so if you're in the UK, particularly the South West (Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Wiltshire, Bristol etc.) then give me a shout.
I'm on most of the popular messaging apps. Please note I can spot a scammer a mile off, so if you're looking to scam - don't waste your time.

2020.06.12 20:45 peterwaller Farage Sackin

I am just an ordinary working class person who knows nothing of politics but I just heard that Nigel Farage has been sacked from LBC. I think it is disgusting that this has happened and Nigel was the only person my partner and myself ever listened to because he was the only one who EVER spoke about the issues that matter to us, the only one who EVER spoke the TRUTH. This is the last straw for me this country has been ruined and I am not doing a thing to help it any more. That he has been silenced like the presenters before him who dared to speak about the subjects that matter to so many people, Brexit, Immigration and now the BLM movement and statue removal etc. I feel completely drained and empty with no one left to fight for me who has the power to do it. I know that millions of people feel the same as me but we are not collective and the media know this. So they take away our voice. I HATE THE MEDIA AND EVERYTHING THAT IS GOING WRONG. What can i do now? Thank you Nigel for making me more aware of all that is bad and going wrong and that the media and government hide and deny. I am truly sorry that you the last one are gone. And to put the icing on the cake...what does James Obrian say about it> thank god we have our radio station back" The worst biased presenter we ever heard:
Pete Waller. Somerset.

2020.05.30 02:23 tonnie_taller 10 Most Intense Cat & Mouse Thrillers, Ranked According To Their IMDb Scores

Read more on WordPress https://ift.tt/2XGGkoS
While thrillers tend to come in many shapes and sizes, there’s one common thread that connects almost every movie in the genre – tension. How that’s achieved varies from movie to movie, with some trapping their characters in a deadly situation, while others may present a compelling central mystery for its protagonists to unravel.
RELATED: The 10 Best Thrillers Movies Of 2012, According To IMDb
One of the most common narrative devices found in the genre, however, is the tried and true ‘cat and mouse’ game. This usually involves a character being pursued by an opposing force, only for the pair to one-up or outsmart each other at every turn – resulting in a tense series of near misses and close calls. Whether the protagonist is the cat or the mouse depends on the movie. Still, the device remains a staple of the thriller genre, so much so that many of the best thrillers ever made build their stories around the idea.

10 No Country For Old Men (2007) – 8.1

One of the many Coen Brothers movies that could be considered a masterpiece, _No Country for Old Men_is based on Cormac McCarthy’s relentlessly bleak novel of the same name.
The movie focuses on hunter Llewelyn Moss, who stumbles upon millions of dollars amongst the bloody aftermath of a botched drug deal – only to be pursued by the cold, relentless, and terrifying criminal Anton Chigurh. The resulting game of cat-and-mouse is amongst the tensest ever put to screen, ending in suitably abrupt fashion, something that only hammers home the point of the movie even harder.

9 Heat (1995) – 8.2

Famous for pitting legendary actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro against each other, Michael Mann’s 1995 crime classic _Heat_follows Pacino’s Lieutenant Hanna as he attempts to foil the final robbery of infamous criminal Neil McCauley.
RELATED: Al Pacino: His 5 Best & 5 Worst Roles (According To IMDb)
The final confrontation between the two characters is incredibly satisfying – and surprisingly poignant – with both men unconsciously recognizing the cost of their respective obsessions. In fact, Heat_’s story feels so sprawling and layered that Christopher Nolan even used it as a prototype when working on _The Dark Knight.

8 North By Northwest (1959) – 8.3

This wouldn’t be a list about tense movies without at least one Alfred Hitchcock title present. Released in 1959, _North by Northwest_tells a classic tale of mistaken identity when advertising specialist Roger Thornhill is mistaken for a government agent and is subsequently chased across the country.
Featuring some of the most iconic action sequences in all of cinema – including a helicopter chase and a tense showdown on Mount Rushmore – _North by Northwest_is Hitchcock at his very best.

7 Oldboy (2003) – 8.4

While _Oldboy_is widely considered one of the best thrillers ever made, it’s also one of the most disturbing. The movie sees drunken deadbeat Oh Dae-su kidnapped and locked in a windowless room for fifteen years, only to be released in the middle of nowhere out of the blue.
It’s then up to Dae-su to track down the man responsible for his imprisonment, however, he may not like the answers he eventually gets. Showcasing some of the most visceral fight scenes ever put to film – as well as a series of truly shocking twists and turns – _Oldboy_manages to be bizarre, powerful, violent, sickening, and hopeful all at once, cementing its reputation as perhaps the finest Korean thriller ever made.

6 The Prestige (2006) – 8.5

Despite being one of Christopher Nolan’s lesser talked about movies, 2006’s _The Prestige_is undoubtedly amongst his best efforts, with its meticulously detailed and satisfyingly devious script making for a brilliantly-spun mystery thriller.
RELATED: 10 Most Villainous Characters In Christopher Nolan Movies
The story focuses on two rival magicians – played by Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman – whose escalating attempts to one-up each other become increasingly dangerous, eventually reaching deadly new heights. Containing some of the most impressive cinematic rug-pulls of the 2000s, _The Prestige_is anchored by terrific performances and an incredibly sharp script.

5 The Departed (2006) – 8.5

A perfect example of how to do a remake right, Martin Scorsese’s celebrated gangster epic The Departed_is based on the 2002 Hong Kong movie _Infernal Affairs. Chronicling the cat and mouse game between criminal-turned-FBI mole Colin Sullivan and undercover cop Billy Costigan, the movie took home several statues at the 79th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Film Editing.
With its cast firing on all cylinders, _The Departed_weaves a rich tapestry of the Boston criminal underworld, standing out as one of Scorsese’s very best – which is saying something.

4 Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) – 8.5

Often singled out as an example of the rare sequel that’s better than its predecessor, _Terminator 2: Judgment Day_takes the tense sci-fi cat and mouse game featured in 1984’s _The Terminator_and ups the ante tenfold, boasting some of the most impressive action sequences ever put to film.
In a twist on the formula, _Judgment Day_sees the previously antagonistic T-800 protect John and Sarah Connor from the even deadlier shapeshifting T-1000, with the movie’s script perfectly balancing action, humor, plot, and heart.

3 The Silence Of The Lambs (1991) – 8.6

Alongside 1934’s It Happened One Night_and 1975’s _One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Jonathan Demme’s _The Silence of the Lambs_is one of only three films to have won the ‘Big Five’ at the Oscars, taking home the awards for Best Picture, Director, Actor, Actress, and Adapted Screenplay.
RELATED: 10 Best Serial Killer Movies From The 80s
Following fresh-faced FBI agent Clarice Starling in her hunt for the terrifying serial killer known as Buffalo Bill, the movie is most well-known for its scenes featuring cold-blooded cannibal Hannibal Lecter. Despite only having eight minutes of screen time, Lecter brings a deeply unsettling yet oddly mesmerizing presence to the movie.

2 Seven (1995) – 8.6

Arguably David Fincher’s magnum opus, 1995’s seminal masterpiece _Seven_delicately treads the line between thriller, horror, and police procedural. Its rich characters, compelling story, and gruesome central mystery culminate in one of the most iconic climactic sequences in film history.
The movie tells the story of Detective Mills and his more cynical partner Detective Somerset – played by Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman respectively – as they attempt to track down a ruthless killer whose murders are inspired by the Seven Deadly Sins.

1 The Dark Knight (2008) – 9.0

Due to its status as a comic book movie, it’s easy to forget that at its core _The Dark Knight_is essentially a sprawling crime thriller, with the philosophical tug-of-war between Batman and the Joker serving as a gripping, tense centerpiece for the movie.
Of course, it helps that it’s packed with top-tier performances, white-knuckle action sequences, and a fantastic script. In fact, The Dark Knight is one of the rare films that became instantly iconic, working its way up to the number three spot in IMDb’s top 250 films of all time.

2020.05.25 20:02 autotldr Somerset hospital closed to new patients to halt spread of coronavirus World news

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 63%. (I'm a bot)
A general hospital in Somerset has temporarily stopped accepting new patients in an attempt to stop the spread of Covid-19 on site.
The hospital had experienced a "Spike" in infections and was being closed to new patients so a deep clean could take place, according to John Penrose, the MP for Weston-super-Mare, who tweeted that he had spoken to local health chiefs.
The trust said there were arrangements in place for new patients to access treatment and care "In other appropriate healthcare settings in the area should they need it".
We currently have a high number of patients with Covid-19 in Weston general hospital.
"While the vast majority will have come into the hospital with Covid-19, as an extra precaution we have taken the proactive step to temporarily stop accepting new patients to maintain patient and staff safety."
"This is a clinically led decision and we are being supported by our system partners to ensure that new patients receive the care and treatment they need in the appropriate setting, and we are continuing to provide high-quality care to existing patients who are being treated in the hospital."

2020.05.23 16:42 Elementaryfan Somerset's switchblade in "Se7en"; subverting Chekhov's Gun trope

Spoilers
Chekhov's gun is a pretty common trope in literature, cinema and television. TV Tropes does a pretty good job explaining it. The definition goes:
Chekhov, master of the short story, gave this advice: If it's not essential, don't include it in the story.
The term has come to mean "an insignificant object that later turns out to be important." For example, a character may find a mysterious necklace that turns out to be the power source to the Doomsday Device, but at the time of finding the object it does not seem important. The necklace was essential to the story, but its introduction downplayed its importance. Chekhov's advice was not necessarily to conceal importance, but to just not spend time on things that are not important.
A lot of people consider the phrase "Chekhov's gun" synonymous with foreshadowing. They are related; a gun that goes off in the third act that hasn't been in the play at all before then is going to feel like a real Ass Pull, but that's not key to the meaning of the phrase.
Indeed, plenty of short stories and novels, as well as movies and TV shows (especially the ones of thriller, mystery and horror genre) still follow that advice/trope. But there are some cases (rare, but most commonly found in movies) where that trope is subverted. One of the particularly good examples is Se7en, and its portrayal of detective Somerset's switchblade.
To say that Se7en subverted the trope is arguable, since the swutchblade, in a way, does serve an important use in the end. But that doesn't play out the way most people would expect it to.
Detective Somerset's switchblade is featured multiple times throughout the movie, though it is not portrayed as particularly significant. We first see it at the beginning, on Somerset's nightstand, while he is getting ready for work. Around halfway into the movie, Somerset uses his switchblade to cut the paper cover on the back of the painting in the victim's office; and his partner, detective Mills, actually inquires about the knife. Later, near the end of the movie, Somerset seems to practice his knife-throwing skills, using the switchblade and the dart board on his living room wall.
All that is a clear example of foreshadowing. Why focus on Somerset's switchblade so much, unless it is important in some way? It stands to reason that it will play a big role in the climatic final scene. Many people who first watched the movie probably expected some kind of final battle, where Somerset's switchblade will play an important part. Maybe Somerset will use it to stab the bad guy during a deadly fight? Or even throw the knife at John Doe in the crucial moment?
But nothing like that happens. Yes, the switchblade is used in the movie's climax, but not as a weapon against the villain. It isn't used to save the day in the last moment, like many people might have expected. Somerset simply uses his switchblade to cut open the box that John Doe had delivered into the desert; thus revealing the horrifying truth, and playing right into John Doe's plan, up until the bitter-and bleak-ending.
That also fits the dark, nihilistic tone of the movie: things don't always turn out the way we want them to, good guys don't always win, and no matter how hard you try, there are some things you just can not stop nor fix.

2020.05.21 14:11 Rimmsel Shaking ground?

Hey everyone, this morning around 8am my partner and I both woke up to notice that the ground of our 3rd floor apartment was shaking/rumbling slightly. It's been going on intermittently for the past hour now and I'm very curious to know what it is. This is the first time we've felt this before: the floor has a faint wiggling feeling that gets picked up on a phone ritcher scale app and wobbles some upright appliances very faintly. We're near the Chateau Saint John, by the Somerset overpass over the highway and the train tracks (I'm not familiar enough with the area to tell you the neighborhood name, sorry!) Is anyone else experiencing this or know what it is?
