    What did he keep calling the film crew? Filthy liberals? That was kinda hilarious, with touches of Man Bites Dog.

    Yep, I had about the same sentiments on Roger Stone doc. And I had no clue who he was beforehand. I think he is, unfortunately, at least somewhat powerful.

    Is this thread broken now too?

    Trump team spin is strong with this one though, I hope GOP doesn't follow suit. As I saw others point out, by Comey stating his memos were handed over to Mueller shows that the Donald is basically under investigation now. And besides McCain's ramblings I feel like no Republican in the hearing attempted to out and out discredit Comey, which makes me feel slightly better because I didn't have high hopes for that hearing. I mean, there were signs of spin like focusing on "hope" and such, which irregardless is still an attempt to persuade and that falls under obstruction.

    @jenn McCain was... weird.

    He was unsuccessfully doing some high level mental gymnastics to conflate (possibly on purpose as a weird gotcha) the email server investigation with the Russian hacking and interference investigation. And Comey just tried to clearly explain that they are two different investigations and the former was closed, but McCain kept asking how he could have a conclusion about one but not the other.

    Or just being completely clueless about modern technology, like thinking "oh emails? hacking? those are all things that happen on the internets so they must all be related in some greater investigation about the campaign." But the email server investigation just happened to coincide with her campaign, they were not interrelated.

    I think they screened both of those Weir films at the Trylon recently. I haven't seen them tho. )-:

    Which, speaking of, Trylon is going to be closing soon for their remodel.

    Yeah I just didn't see those things as cliches/tropes, or at least bad ones. I'm happy the heroes are scientists. And the romance kind of fit in with a story about connection and loss, which other people have taken as being another metaphor in the film. But I mean I haven't seen this movie in over 6 months so not all that stuff is fresh in my memory. Which speaking of, I forgot how much I also loved the soundtrack, which I think had a lot to do with how emotionally moving it was for me in the theater. For me it all just came together in such a way that I was willing and ready to get swept up in it.

    Also @junea, I was actually curious what your perspective as a linguist would be, but I had assumed that you would have the opposite reaction to it than what you've stated. (-;
