FOSS is good when it threatens capitalism and gives power to otherwise marginalized voices. It is not inherently good, though, nor is it a means to itself

The footage of that Beirut explosion is confronting. I won’t post it here, it’s almost overwhelming

@ben_hr Oh my God it all starts flowing in. At least Stallone's Dredd was entertaining, even if that wasn't always intentional.

There was:

Russell Crowe as Javert
Gerard Butler as the Phantom of the Opera
Vince Vaughn as Norman Bates
Topher Grace as Venom
Kevin Costner as Robin Hood

and just to top all the horrible whitewashed roles, I'll go with
John Wayne as Genghis Khan

Has there ever been a more blatant act of miscasting than Stallone in Judge Dredd?
