Sushi, in a rare case of having a clue, understands that despite the plot inconsistencies he can still enjoy the movie, because they are not highly relevant for the movie's specific universe and what it tries to do. Another Aussie, PKC, too expresses how he thinks these issues are true but minor once. But of them understand that Jack is just spewing a load of irrelevant crap that fails to address the actual strengths and weaknesses of the movie.
But watch how both just humbly express their admiration and humbly applaud him, without even thinking about expressing their own concerns. Why? Because they know that if someone rants this long and eloquently about something irrelevant he can and will just kill any contrary opinion by even longer, better worded hammers of text.
So yeah, I agree, brilliant debating skills indeed.
i dont pretend to have the depth of knowledge SJ does when it comes to these things. i hated that part of english, im the kind of person that wants to enjoy film/tv for what it is, rather than the (supposed) underlying wank of how complex or meaningful it is.
if SJ had said anything i disagreed with i would've mentioned it. you'll note that earlier in the thread my biggest gripe was the "tell, not show" that existed throughout the film.
i didn't express my concerns for the film because i don't consider myself very knowledgeable on the subject. i just know what i like or don't. you know way more stuff than me but i was still willing to correct some of your poor BSG assumptions
