Scorcese is a terrible director and should be a full-time screenwriter.

2022.01.24 13:39 TuneBride Scorcese is a terrible director and should be a full-time screenwriter.

Like 99% of people who have watch movies, I've been exposed to Martin Scorcese's filmography. By now, I've seen almost everything he's done. While I do like his movies and I am not saying they are themselves bad, I think the man is a so-so director at best and absolutely horrible at the worst times. I love his screenwriting though, and consider it as important a part of Americana as the Superbowl, Hemingway or jazz.
But I've just watched The Departed for the 3rd time in my life and finally realized what makes his movies fall short of greatness for me. Lack of in-scene continuity, edits too quick to make any kind of impact in story-telling, split diopters for no discernable reason, scenes that linger so long they test the ability of the amazing talent he has been blessed to work with over his career.
I'm sure my cricisims aren't anything he hasn't had throw his way before, but the idea that they can be ignored so that he can be considered one of the greatest directors of all time is ridiculous to me. I don't know what kind of director he is behind the scenes but I assume he's great to work with. But his final product doesn't reflect that assumption. He seems to get away with poorly executed concepts simply because of how good they are on paper. I find myself having to force my perspective in order to enjoy his movies and overlook the nearly-amateurish way he constructs a scene.
He would better serve the film industry he loves so much as a screen-writer, rather than a director and I wish I could see someone else take the helm behind the camera in his projects. Maybe use him as an assistant director? But certainly don't let him in the editing room.

2022.01.24 13:39 lavender_dreams1 Shall I remove him from everything?

He broke up with me last week after 3 and a half years. We had been arguing for a while on and off but it was nothing too serious, until we had one argument and it all boiled over, and he told me he wanted space. After a week of “space” he finally broke up with me, which is what I was expecting. But it still hurts so much. We still have each other on social media and talk on and off throughout the day, and he will sometimes act as if nothings wrong and then when I start to think maybe things will work, he turns around and reminds me we aren’t together.
It hurts so so much and I just want him back. I’m trying to distract myself as much as possible, going to the gym, etc. but all I want is to hug him and hold him. Am I making a mistake still talking to him? Should I just bite the bullet and remove him? I am really hoping we have a chance in the future, shall I just remove him, will that make his heart grow fonder? God it hurts so much. I love him so much.

I had omicron earlier this month, my symptoms cleared up, but I will get what feels like the onset of a panic attack (heart races, tingling in hands, sometimes hard to swallow), several times a day, and especially at night. Is this in my head or is this happening to anyone else!??

2022.01.24 13:39 Significant_Cold7746 Which ski resorts to hit or avoid this season?

Planning a trip to ski early March. I hear some resorts have more covid related staffing and management issues than others. Are they all about the same, or some to betteworse than others? Some in our group have Epic pass so they have a preference, if service is similar. We are thinking of looking for lodging on the south side. Advice?

2022.01.24 13:39 LuminousWorldStories [FOR HIRE] Passionate Editor / Writer who can help bring YOUR STORY to life!

I'm an experienced editor and writer who is passionate about great storytelling and vibrant characters, from short stories and novels to comic books and webcomics!
Specializing in Developmental Editing and Editorial Assessments, I also possess a sensitivity to language and its usage that makes me adept at Line/Copyedits in a variety of genres and styles to ensure that language is strong and meaningful for a reader. Whether you're writing a 30-page comic, a memoir, or a fantasy trilogy, let me help you make your writing—and even more importantly, your STORY—the very best it can be!
Creators who work with me frequently note my creative power and eagerness to explore even the most minute details which, when combined, produce a unique attention to detail that elevates storytelling to the next level and ensures that your message reaches your readers. With an innate sense of the nuances of linguistics and language, a lifetime of reading and a passion for storytelling as an art form make me the type of editor who understands works far beyond their surface details: someone capable of pulling out themes and ideas within a story that even you, the story's creator, may not have been fully aware of! Working with me, you will have a mentor, teammate, and cheerleader invested in your story's success.
Interests and specialties of mine include character-driven works of literary and creative fiction, particularly in the Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Romance, and Magic genres, as well as the Young Adult (YA) and emerging New Adult (NA) genres. I am currently working on my own Fantasy series, a multi-volume illustrated series that melds the spirit of the Japanese Light Novel with western Romance and Monomythic traditions for a literary-inclined NA audience. I work frequently with stories that don't fit squarely within singular genres, and especially appreciate atypical or unique works that push me to use all of my skills.
Rates range from .03-.08 for editing ranging from the final proofread to in-depth line edits and Developmental edits (minimum $100/job).
Consultation sessions via voice chat (Discord, Streamyard, etc.) at a rate of $35/hour (minimum 1 hour).

I can't wait to work with you next!

2022.01.24 13:39 Conan__The_Librarian On the meditation channel on Alexa, 'A' is the constant quarter note drone/tonic .. why does C# Phrygian work so nicely here?

I'm actually assuming the whole droning vibe is in A major but C# Phrygian pulls me right in .. the entire piece just bounces off the tonic A and to all the other notes of the Ionian scale but C# Phrygian seems to be an answer .. wondering why that is!

I've always prioritized skills, but left a bit in mana... I'm WL 3300-something now.
At this level I've got a ton of skill points (posted my skill set up in another post) and am unsure how many points it's worth leaving for starting mana versus pushing skills up.
At the moment I have 23,498 total skill points with 5,348 unspent for +37,436 starting mana.

2022.01.24 13:39 Content_Insurance_96 I no longer trust my inmigration officer, if sabotage what could I do?

Bonjour à tous!
PD: I can read French but I can't really write.
I've been working for almost 5 years now to get a work permit through the Regular Skilled Worker Program for Quebec. It's been a long journey and I'm quite close to the finish line. The thing is that I no longer trust my immigration assessor, I can no longer fully trust that he would not sabotage the process.

So I was wondering if, for example, he would send an incomplete folder of documents to the migration office or in some way sabotage the process, what would be my recourses? What could I do?

Thank you so much! In any case, I hope everything goes well and I'm really looking forward to a future in Canada!
