Flat design by dark nowhere (4.00 / 1) #1 Sun Nov 15, 2015 at 01:59:51 PM EST
I am a fan of flat design in the sense that these 1980s faux-3D widgets and similar space-cluttering elements have to go at any cost. Feedback is important though. Strong but lightweight contextual signifiers are good.

This talk of efficiency in context of the web is hard to swallow. Flat design usually comes with a moderate-to-high dose of minimalism which I find helps more than the residual ambiguities hurt. The comment about younger users in the conclusion: we could say the same about older users and what they're used to—older web design trends have their fair share of atrocities.

Chill out, snowflake.

The only thing I liked about it was how all of the movement on screen was punctuated by percussion. Given all the buzz, I kept waiting for something brilliant to show up on screen. It never arrived.

It was a kind of hymn of self-congratulation to the old-school Hollywood middlebrow. Haha, look at the action movie stars, aren't they dumb! Hoho, look at the theatre people, aren't they pretentious!

I'm not sure how self-congratulatory it was. The main representative of the old-school action hero was a guy who kept trying and failing to kill himself and who suffered from some pretty bizarre delusions.

I think it was more intended to satirize both Hollywood and Broadway. There's probably a community somewhere that got all of the inside jabs and thought the movie was hysterical in the same way that I think South Park is hysterical.
