It's John. It's not like he has any other pressing matters.

He "watches" 10 movies a day - that's got to take a toll...

Braden basically calling him retarded was definitely the straw that broke the camel's back lol.  Also, the environment on here really isn't particularly mean-spirited and definitely not toxic; whatever though, he'll probably be back within a month.
John has been around for many years and has seen how vicious our sense of humour can be.  He's just being N/A (my dad owns a movie theatre) because people call him out on his shіt here, which I doubt happens to him at home considering he's an only child and his parents seem to spoil him.
Oh, I agree with you and don't place blame with you. I'm just saying that he definitely does take more shit on here than most people and that probably got somewhat tiresome or something, I dunno.

2 - He's become ultra, ultra liberal. When he's not tweeting about movies he's retweeting everything that's horrible/awful/evil about conservatives and everything that's great/purist about liberals.  So our political discussions where a lot of us have become more central has likely irked him (though he didn't mention that specifically in the farewell speech, I'm extrapolating here).

I've been pointing this out so many times to y'all.  Y'all just kept ignoring it, but I've been saying it's a matter of time since he got sick of y'all's political onions and left.
goodbye!

While true - I think it's been a lot more tame recently (at least since I got back - I don't know about beforehand).  Now, maybe consider this...

Back in the day, John took shit every single day - he was like a punching bag, which he called a lot on himself with the whole age thing and the Kate Tyler thing and the reviewing movies he didn't watch thing and the Chris Stuckmann plagiarism thing, etc.  He was probably numb to it...

However, recently, things have been very quiet regarding John.  Until yesterday when he got hit on a couple of fronts.  Perhaps his immunity to it had weakened because he wasn't really used to it anymore, so it hit him harder being criticized...

I don't know - just a theory I suppose.

I never saw those posts.  Were those before I came back?  I had no idea until I read through some of his Twitter stuff.

I suppose our political discussions would fall into the same trap as the Oscars, where excessive politicization of an explicitly apolitical medium would prove to be grating. However, he doesnít have to read those threads if he doesnít want to. Even then Iíve found our political debates to be relatively constrained and not all that dominating of board activity, so Iím not outright seeing the problem unless heís actively trying to avoid hearing/associating with dissenting opinions, which is not the right attitude for him to have for midterms (and since his home state has a gubernatorial election no less).

I mean, the political discussions have mostly involved Diego, Me, and Kale.  Flounder never even took part in them.  And, it's not like any of us are even conservative - I'm probably the closest of the three, but I'm right in the center.  Never heard any objections from him during the discussions.  However, looking at his Twitter feed, he's close to a pussy-hat wearing angry cys-gender marcher...

Jeffblum was the only ďtraditionalĒ conservative on the board, and even then he had more of a Ron Paul style libertarian conservative bent where his social conservative stances were more of personal preference than wanting to impose them as law. I suppose Iím technically right of center even if I donít really identify as conservative (I suppose being raised in a Republican household does that though I donít think I have a place in the modern GOP). Like Diego Iíd definitely be more libertarian/classical liberal. Even so itís healthy for your own opinions to have such debate.

This does remind me of this post he made after Fidel Castro died:
Apparently Cubans here in Florida are very happy about this...

...I can't wait to get back home.

I was raised in a pretty heavy liberal household in Cali, but I moved close to center at a pretty young age - like around 16, 17.  I don't fit either box because I'm gonna be close to 1/2 on one side and 1/2 on the other when it comes to a lot of the main issues.  But our political discussions on this board, as far as political discussions go, haven't really been very volatile at all.

I thought you said you didn't like this site's politics either. Which confused me, because I don't know what this site's politics are.

Also, Jeffblum was actually a pretty traditional conservative. Anti-abortion, hated weed (granted, I do too, but I still think it should be legal), and the most religious user on this board. The guy voted for Ted Cruz, and if Ted Cruz is a libertarian so is Ayatollah Khomeini.

Ted Cruz scared the crap out of me.  That dude is as conservative as there is in the world.

It's John. It's not like he has any other pressing matters.

He "watches" 10 movies a day - that's got to take a toll...

You know, this is something I kept meaning to bring up. Even if we go by the most skeptical estimates of his claims, he's still undeniably watched thousands of movies, and far more than any one of us (with the possible exception of you, I suppose). That's thousands of scenes, thousands of characters, thousands of plot turns, tens of thousands of camera shots all bouncing around somewhere in his memory. This really brings us to the question: what exactly you think he's learned from that?

I remember I used to think that seeing a sufficiently high number of good movies would sort of let you do them on auto-pilot to at least decent level. This was bolstered when I read Empire interview with Scorcese where he said he has a TV in every room and there's always a different movie playing on each of them so there's always background noise for him. Then, Danny shared that video of MOS/BvS apparently having visual parallels to Renaissance art, and it showed that Snyder clearly saw them, yet learned nothing but how to stage a similar shot, while missing all the context. So, I do wonder what John would consider like, 10 most important takeaways from however many movies he saw by now.


2 - He's become ultra, ultra liberal. When he's not tweeting about movies he's retweeting everything that's horrible/awful/evil about conservatives and everything that's great/purist about liberals.  So our political discussions where a lot of us have become more central has likely irked him (though he didn't mention that specifically in the farewell speech, I'm extrapolating here).

To be fair, I do not think he is as far on that spectrum as Danny. Remember how John saw Death Wish and thought it was decent, even as those like Danny kept on going about it being conservative propaganda, etc.? I think he gave a good rating to the very same Ghost in the Shell that irked Danny so much as well.

You should go look at Flounder's twitter account.  Literally every post is about either movies or pushing/retweeting far-left liberal agenda.

Haven't logged into my Twitter for close to a year now. Started an account early last year after the first Justice League trailer because I thought it would be fun to engage Danny's brethren. In practice, I soon followed Xinhua to see what their perspective was like and they accounted for 60%+ of everything I saw, even after I followed a dozen more reasonably active accounts. It did have its benefits (I found out substantially more about Africa, and learned everything that was relevant about their One Belt, One Road about half a year before Western media finally woke up to it), but it was ultimately way too exhausting. I never really wanted to engage in 140-character arguments in the first place, so there was no other point logging in.

Anyway, back then, I did follow both him and Danny, and Andrew. At the time, I remember all the truly inane hysteria being retweeted by Danny, while Flounder and Andrew were generally RT-ing the same kind of stuff, and Flounder's account was more about his Letterboxed stuff, actresses' photos and general movie arguments. Let's see if it actually changed...
