Tim Miller and Linda Hamilton admitted they hated the thumbs up ending from T2. They probably hate themselves.
seems like an appropriately corny ending for a movie that also utilized George Thorogood's "Bad to the Bone" without irony.

Sorry, I needed a place to vent about all this.
also, I don't really have any better job-hunting advice than what was already posted. depending on how badly you need money right now, you could also find some volunteer work to a) stay busy, b) pad your resume, c) do something meaningful, and d) hopefully meet more people that might happen to know of some job openings (assuming it comes up in conversation). but, you know, still have relationships beyond such transactions.

that's all I got. in the past I've gotten jobs through a rehab program, the current job I'm at I got on my own but I was still working at one of those jobs beforehand so it wasn't like I didn't have a back-up.

I don't have much to offer than what's already been said here, but I just wanted to wish you the best of luck, Slent :up: Living alone at a young age is never easy, but I'm sure you'll be able to manage it. Just keep on looking.

Really? I've gone back and forth loving the movie and finding it overrated but not once did I ever looked at that part and cringed or wish it wasn't there, it always felt genuine within Cameron's limits as a filmmaker.

I should clarify that I find that stuff corny in an affectionate way. Aliens has a bit of corniness too. they're still very good movies.

Thank you so much for all the advise, everyone. I'm sorry for being such a drama queen about it. I will try to post something actually movie-related soon.

There are two search options located in the upper section of the webpage: one to search within the topic/thread you're in and another one to search in the overall forum.

FWIW the only part of the search function that works for me is bringing up a particular user's posts. Trying to search through those, or from scratch, or in a particular thread, just results in a blank page

BTW, I have a job now. I work as a caretaker for a mentally and physically disabled child. The mother only speaks French and Italian, my French isn't that great but we still manage to communicate to each other everything that's necessary. I'll probably have to look for a second job in the future because it's not that many hours, but for now I'll manage.

Thanks! This might sound awful, but since I usually feel like a worthless human being, it's nice to be able to actually help someone through my work. I still feel worthless, but at least I'm contributing something.

Admittedly, I've had a couple instances similar to that in the past. It really sucks to go through that, and I don't have a lot of advice to offer, but the best advice I can give is to keep sticking to what you enjoy doing as I find that it really helps on darker days.

Every so often I think about the brief period of my childhood when it seemed like Hollywood wanted to inject as much Sinbad into my life as humanly possible with Houseguest, First Kid, and Jingle All the Way. I guess three films in two years only seems like a lot when you're a kid. Pretty sure watching Houseguest was the hardest my brother and I ever laughed at anything, even topping The Shinning and Homer Badman. We were definitely confusing "talking quickly" with "actually funny."

I'm not sure why I feel compelled to talk about Sinbad. There has to be some significance here. Maybe the word Sinbad is just fun to say.

There's some sort of meme or something that's basically, "Oh no, it's the inevitable consequences of my actions" or something like that.

Is anybody familiar? Is this a thing? I remember something like this.

I'm not aware of such a meme, but that does sound like the template for 90% of Guardian op-eds. "I was a direct contributor to [awful thing]. Now we must stop [awful thing] at all costs."

I feel like we're building up Bong Joon Ho up to some unspeakable status. Like when you watch his movies now, people won't like them out of spite.

Already happening. Stock in Bong is falling. It's time to re-invest in Ha Nong-Jin, Kim Ji-Woon, and Kim Ki-Duk.

Yeah, that's often the problem with these sort of things. Film Twitter is already turning him into some kind of meme like they did with Herzog and Lynch (though both of those kinda leaned into it).

Film Twitter is great because you can see stuff like Scott Derrickson being super-excited for Sam Raimi taking the next Dr. Strange, or Chris McQuarrie offering screenwriting advice, or film critics eagerly introducing newbies to new Korean films, and also it's terrible because of so so so so so much else.
