cass, can you not

I'm watching Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, and a while ago I watched The Losers

While this is hardly an apples-to-apples comparison, it's still an staggering contrast. Neither makes much sense, or is expected to, but each of the handful of "badass" moments in The Losers has about as much pointless awesome badassitude as the average random second of FF VII. Everybody jumps, shoots, emotes, explodes, fires rays, or makes understated derogatory sounds all the time. After a while it becomes normal, and changing channels (yes, I'm watching TV --- how 20th century :P) feels like a jarring mental slowdown.
