Tell us a tale, anon. Anything that you would think we'd find most interesting. A startling night on the town? A funny gamer moment? Your coming out story? Whats your story?

Non format specific (use green text or normal format)

I'll start:

I used to work in a movie theatre back in 2014. It was in a very populated city so there was a verity of co-workers. One of them was named John, who was a very flamboyant homosexual. So much so he would always wear an ascot to work even when we wore uniforms. He was new and the brother of the manager at the time. I, being fairly blue-pilled and open to new social relationships, chose to strike up a conversation with John through out our shifts together.

A few shifts down the road and one day John came in seemingly depressed. We haven't built up much of a friendship other than the shifts we worked together but I did my best to be nice and ask him what was wrong. He said something along the lines of a relationship problem and I offered fairly good advice to handling it.

A week or two later, we worked together again and once again he had the same sort of relationship problem. It hit me as weird at first because I felt like his first issue was pretty well resolved with the right decision making skills but to my surprise it was with a new partner. Brushing it off in the assumption that the last one was just the end of a longer relationship, I offered advice and we went along our way.

This back and forth went on for the remaining three months I worked at the theatre. It was like every week he'd have a new issue with a new boyfriend and they all revolved around petty high school girl drama and "he said, she said" faggotry. It was also relieved at some point that most of these men came from a Grindr app. Needless to say my patience with John was wearing. Even if it was a new relationship, he refused to learn the same lessons he was given from the last 5 or 10 men he fucked before hand. I was nearing my final week when I final gave in with giving up with his bullshit. "Why" I asked him "Why do you keep meeting up with these men you meet on an app? Don't you thin you want to take a break if you're really think you're being stalked by this guy?"

John paused momentarily to reflect on the question. "yeah," he giggled, "but I like having fun"

"Heil hitler, nice dubs", I began. But suddenly realised I was talking to a raging homosexual. How raging? Well let's just say both of his ample heads were red and bulging. "You a nazi, Billy?" he said, for Billy is my name. "Quite so although we find the term nazi to be quite offensive as it is a slur and not at all a nice thing to say to one whom you accuse of being thereof" "Soz Guv'nor" Then he turned his head away and spat and walked on. We set forth across the street like two streaks of bacon on the asphalt mesa straddling the dividing line between chaos and order between cooked and raw. My arm hurt so I thought about John he was real swell that John I should look him up some time. I supposed I should tell you about John. Well John was 185 cm tall he stood perpendicular to the Earth most of the day but was known to become horizontal in his more intimate moments. He had a face that looked sad like a youthful looking man looking sad though he was not morose by nature just in countenance. We had taken to calling him John of the sad face as a subtle jibe towards his habit of carrying around a copy of Easy Rider (1969) 4k HD [YIFY] at all times in case someone tried to hassle him, which they never did due to his biker attitude and cool biker bandana. At that very moment someone shouted out "faggots in the road" and a group of local youths and laborers began laughing as myself and Eric wheeled around desperately searching for the uncouth haranguer as he continued "get your faggots in the road" and we realised to our mortification that he was refering to a nearby pail of wood. "Thank you good sir I had forgot them momentarily upon this avenue". "No problem luv" And then we saw him dressed in bad biker attitude gear and assless pants smoking a cigarillo. He stood about seven feet tall and was completely hairless even around his juicy anus. He eyed us wearily like a freshly face raped whore reliving her childhood abuse in the moments before another nigger shoves his nigger aids cock down her throat. "Are you a faggot by any chance?" I inquired. "Depends on what you can pay" "Ahh a business man or as I like to say commerce sense" I began wheezing with laughter at my witticism. With dreadful tears in my eyes I turned to my companion who was convulsing like a retard with dreadful guffaws. Even the faggot was laughing and we could see his anus winking sympathetically in the sunPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Overrated or properly rated?

Europeans romanticize him because he looked kind of gay in photoshoots, while nips are ashamed of him because he advocated for nationalism and even killed himself for it.

Assuming OP means overrated or properly rated by shut-in edgy weebs, he's properly rated, but for all the wrong reasons.

San andreas review

This is simultaneously an extremely enjoyable movie, and entirely forgettable.

In execution it's arguably the best "disaster movie" made since maybe the original batch of them, however it's script is so generic in its design that it comes off as extremely bland. The action is very fun, and the performance by Rock, Daddario, and most of the main cast are good. However I couldn't tell you a single thing about what happens in the story or any of the characters names until I rewatched it for this review.

The strangest thing about the film is the step-dad character played by the guy who was mr. fantastic, he seems like a nice guy well enough, but then he just abandons daddario with no build up and then gets killed. It's such a bizarre no build up occurrence and is the only less than ideal thing in the film. Other than that it's hard to find "flaws" or "plotholes" with what's occuring, but sometimes good execution isn't enough.

Films need SOMETHING to make them real, a perfectly logical approach isn't enough, sometimes that can be a performance, normally LITTY MAN Dwayne Johnson delivers that, I've watched countless films that are complete trash that he's in like skyscraper for example but he doesn't do that for this film, He's good in it, and a lot of fun in the moment, but I don't have a strong memory of what he does in it.


I can reccomend this film as something to watch on like tv or something, but it isn't worth going out of the way far.

Baywatch Review

Baywatch is where the whole "litty" meme began and frankly it's only really an enjoyable film if you keep the interaction and way rock promoted the film in mind.

As a comedy, there really are few memorable jokes in the film, the most obvious one I can think of is the fat jew kid getting his penis stuck in the pool chair, other than that it's really more just "comedic interactions" and banter. Efron and dwayne have decent chemistry, but it's arguably one of his weakest comedic outings to date, that being said the plot isn't as obnoxious as some of the other films he's been in, and it being a more "adult" comedy does wonders as it isn't constrained or neutered like some of the family comedies the rock was in in the mid 2000s, Rock really only works in a Pg-13 and up setting, which is why his returns to WWE in the PG era have all sucked ass pretty much universally. He needs to be able to talk his style which this film allows him to do.

The cameos from the old baywatch cast are fine, but as someone who wasn't really attached to the old tv show it was somewhat odd constantly hearing references to how "they're just lifeguards why are they solving crimes" but I picked up pretty quick that it was the plot of the OG Show, and understood the jokes from there.

Alexandria daddario is really fucking hot in the movie, as is the girl who they got to play the modern version of pamela anderson's character. However the titilation in general throughout the film is surprisingly limited, and I would have liked a bit more, and at least SOME female nudity in an R rated comedy film. I suppose that's a modern cultural change, but if this was made in the 90s or the early 00s I can imagine this being much better. Anyways, I don't really enjoy seeing gratuity in films personally, but at least daddario has gone nude before to great success and this is the exact kind of thing that would help a film like this, especially if it's played up for comedic effect.

The biggest strength of the film is when the female indian villain gets blown the fuck up at the end, it fuckin rocked seeing a woman fucking die a horrible miserable death on screen. Badass man

Gridiron Gang, Snitch, and the case for soundtracks

For one of the last "litty reviews I'm going to do here (video tomrrow plus big discussion stream) I'm gonna compare two movies, Gridiron Gang, and Snitch.

On paper, Snitch is a far more interesting film, having the rock as a civilian go undercover to save his son from an unjust prison sentence is a fun setup for a good thriller/action flick, and the amount of shootouts, car stunts, and tense scenes should make this film an easy win. Conversely gridiron gang is the exact kind of movie I should hate, a "feel-good" story about poor dindus at juvenile prison coming together to make a football team, and going on to triumph over the evil wacist whitey time in the playoffs. Everything about this film screams "not good" on paper, but the movies differ in one MAJOR category that makes snitch a bland forgettable flick, and Gridiron gang one of the most enjoyable films Dwayne has been in. The soundtrack

The soundtrack in gridiron gang is just fucking incredible, it soars, it builds, it's classical in design, but has some influence from prog-rock as well the composer was the guitarist for YES back in the day. Conversely the soundtrack in Snitch is bland, forgettable, somber, and drags what could be tense scenes of action into slow trudges through monotony. There's a scene where a semi-truck does a full crazy drift flip off a turnpike, and the music playing deafens all the noise, and just has low drone shit going on. I understand you want to go with a serious tone, but this doesn't enhance that, it just makes the situations less impactful and tense. Gridiron gang's soundtrack takes boring scenes and makes them incredible, Snitch's takes crazy scenes and makes them boring. This combined with the AMAZING speeches rock delivers in this film which are word-for-word lifted from the documentary this film is based on make Gridiron gang an extremely emotional, fun, and just all around great film to behold. I can't recommend it enough, at least for listening to rocky's speeches and the OST on jewtube or something. Snitch is okay as well, but not something you should go out of your way to see in my opinion

The Jesus narrative in Walking Tall (2004)
by, litty!!5R7V6Dzn3I

In honor of litty week, I will post my scholarly review of Walking Tall (2004) in relation to the Jesus narrative.

Here are the timestamps that allude to the film operating on 2 levels:
At 2:40, Chris Vaughn sees a mother leaving her child to obtain drugs. This is comparable to the many times that Jesus witness's degeneracy and Pharisees who don't fulfill the law properly just as how this mother isn't doing her duty.

Chris tells his nephew that it will rain. The nephew doesn't listen, but it ends up raining. This is like Jesus prophesizing and people denying him.

At 9:27 there is secrecy when the nephew asks Chris if he killed people. Chris doesn't respond, Jesus displays this type of secrecy many times in the gospel of Mark.

At 16:18 Chris witness degeneracy at the casino. This is like Jesus witnessing degeneracy the temple. The casino represents the 2nd temple. It is the central hub for all of Judaism and contains immoral things occurring within the temple.

Jumanji
-Anonymous

Since it's litty week I thought we should discuss the litty little summer romp that was Jumanji, and it's sequel Jumanji: The Next Level. What do you think of the new soft reboots? I thought the first was a decent little flick. The body swap premise is fun and the cast absolutely go with it. Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart basically play the same duo they always do, Jack Black does the camp thing (which is not as annoying as you might think) and Karen Gillan plays a shy inexperienced teen, which made my dick hard. The comedy is pretty broad and you probably won't laugh more than once or twice but the interpersonal stuff with the teens is actually quite well done. There are some genuinely good lessons for younger audiences beyond the played out "be yourself" or "stand up to bullies". There are even some RAUNCHY jokes in there for those of you wanting some raunchy summer fun.

Second one is definitely weaker and feels like a retread, the only real thing that feels fresh here is Danny Devito and his black friend making a bunch of "old people don't get vidya" jokes which is about as good as it gets. After that it just feels like the first film again. Awkwafina adds nothing, I don't know why the fuck she gets all these roles, I hate her voice, her acting, her look and everything. They try and change up the scenery to a desert, then a snowy mountain but it really does nothing to change the fact that the concept is exactly the same. They could've mixed up the characters a bit, both in real life and in Jumanji, that would've helped it along. The emotional core of this film is the two old guys and the film would've been better if this was the focus instead of the break-up sub-plot. Unless Jumanji 3 completely drops the ball this will definitely be remembered as the worst of the trilogy.
