Everything & Nothing: If You’re Home Alone This Weekend Don’t Be a Grinch

You guys and gals know the drill; “Everything & Nothing” is a weekend open post where anything goes. Okay, maybe not anything; but it’s a place to chat about stuff in the reel and real world.

Merry Christmas Exiles, once again another week has passed us by.

Don’t forget that this Sunday we are roasted The Grinch (the one with Jim Carrey in a dyed green yak fur suit). Hope you can make it 3PM EST.

Enjoy your weekend.

LET THE OPEN POST COMMENCE!

  • The trick for slipcovers is to slowly peel as much of the sticker off as possible, apply the goo, let it sit for a minute, then rub in a circular motion with the corner of a paper towel. Then wipe the remaining grease off with a tissue. You may also need to use a scraper after applying the goo (like the cap in that link), but you gotta be careful. It’s not perfect (you inevitably dent the cardboard a bit), but it removes the residue. Horrible Best Buy stickers come off pretty well. And the Duck brand smells like oranges 😀 #ThisIsWhyImSingle

  • It’s an adhesive remover. I actually use Duck brand. I got it on US Amazon. I found it on Amazon(DOT)ca but it seems pretty pricey. https://www.amazon(DOT)ca/dp/B00178MNVS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_t1_zOZlAbEMWRHXW

  • What is this Goo-Gone you speak of and where can I find it!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    No.

  • I will strike down upon thee with great trinkets and curious clutter those who attempt to remove and destroy my plastic brothers. And you will know my name is the Nerd when I lay my collection upon thee!

  • *blank stare*

    Not sure how you can not binge on Transmetro or Invisibles from beginning to end, but I recommend V for Vendetta.

  • *blank stare*

    “Better go punch a clown.”

  • *blank stare*

    I shall teach thee of mine sacred and holy path, that of the disk storage case. Thy covers shall be no more burden to thee, thy sleeve art shalt been known but only by holy JPG.
    Thy recycle bin shalt overflow with the blue and black plastic of the damned and ye shalt rejoice!

  • Finally watching Atomic Blonde. I’m kind of… bored…

    I hope this isn’t a sign of Deadpool 2.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It honestly isn’t much more than walking, throwing your hat and jumping.
    That’s pretty much it

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Call me old-fashioned (again!) but I can only function with the simple (S)NES two buttons and direction pad thingy. Otherwise, I’m lost. I suppose I enjoy the Lego games so much because it’s on the computer and it’s a question of hitting one or two keys at a time. LOL

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Then i recommend that new Mario.
    It’s great

  • When I’m at my drafting table, removing stickers from blu-ray slipcovers with tweezers and Goo-Gone, I can feel myself reaching my final nerd form.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    That’s kind of freaky. I don’t like this at all.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    That’s the part that caught my eye, too. That kid is not impressed with Hobo Santa.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    “You’re not supposed to get it.” – Mark Rutland

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I never managed to beat Zelda on NES, even with map cheats and the Game Genie. I’m not really good at those kind of games.
    I’ve got enough to gobble up my time. 😛

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Can the human fund be my bank account?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Me and you should do a secret Santa gift exchange. You can surprise me with Zelda and I can give you a $100 dollar donation to the Human Fund in your name. What do you say?

  • TheDeadFellow

    People are seeing The Shape of Water early and it’s fucking pissing me off.

  • TheDeadFellow

    The Grinch > BVS

    I mean this.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Y’all Motherfuckers need to get dat Zelda.
    It’s gobbling up my time like a pac-man eating ghosts

  • ResonanceCascade

    That’s how you know you’ve arrived.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    You caught me.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s the first thing that came to mind

  • The junkyard heap: Batman’s most nefarious rogue.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    …just roll out the way

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Get outta here!

  • @thatguywhopostsalrightgeez:disqus

  • WTF

  • I don’t get it.

  • Happy Sunday Funday
    Went to Steel City Con and Buffalo Wild Wings for lunch.

    Writing Christmas Cards
    Ordering Pizza
    Watching Steelers v Ravens

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon

    That ain’t the one!

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon

    Post that skeleton meme

  • Sailor Monsoon

    What the hell is this??

  • Proceed at your own risk, but I may have found an Italian(?) blog that reposts everything we have. http://rgrththrth.org/thing/filmexodus/filmexodus_roasts_the_grinch_2000

  • We have to count upvotes first.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Did i win the roast?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Rope is damn good

  • King Alvarez

    Rope’s a great movie, Phillip just gets a little over the top at points. But I guess that’s part of the role. Hadn’t seen it in years, and didn’t really pick up the homosexual overtones I read about, this time or when I first saw it. Neither did my wife.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Rope is one of my favs. It is interesting to hear your take; I myself never noticed any overracting but perhaps I’m partial. 🙂

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    That lousy vermin chewed an archway through the plaster. I don’t think it escaped. We are going to put expanding foam in the crack. It’s got no chance now. That thing better not make it three nights in a row to disturb my sleep … GRRRR!

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I watch a lot of old interviews and tv clips on YouTube. It’s really a saving grace for that. I thank the people who will transfer recordings from VHS tapes. 🙂

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I just close my eyes.
    I never watch red band trailers

  • Indianamcclain

    I heard about it ahead of time, and as soon as it started playing in front of Lady Bird I walked out for a couple minutes.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s a hard sell

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Tokyo Godfathers literally got cut for another film.
    The new article (12 days of blah blah blah) was supposed to be about that film but i found something more obscure while writing it and it had to get the axe.
    But go check out Tokyo Godfathers if you haven’t.
    It’s amazing

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You gotta get a switch
    That new Mario game is the cats tits

  • Literally waiting an hour for the new RP1 trailer to drop.

  • King Alvarez

    Watched Dunkirk on Friday and Rope last night. Not sure what will be the movie of the night tonight yet. Dunkirk was great. Rope is a little over acted, but what do you want from a stage play in movie form? Jimmy Stewart was brilliant as always.

  • King Alvarez

    The Thing.

  • King Alvarez

    I also feel like there has been less new surrounding it so far. I’m pretty devoid of info as well.

  • King Alvarez

    Valhalla Rising!

  • King Alvarez

    I will have to watch that one alone. Can’t convince the wife to watch it.

  • Poppity is instantly cooler knowing she plays Lego video games.

  • King Alvarez

    I can’t find two good seats next to each other early enough. I stupidly waited too long. I will have to disappear from the internet for like a week.

  • William Dhalgren

    Poisoned! Poor little guy!

  • William Dhalgren

    My wife refuses to watch trailers all the way through now. She hates how much they give away now.

  • William Dhalgren

    I have found some really good stuff in the last few days. I put YouTube on my TV’s Roku, and have been exploring a bit. Have never really used YouTube for anything of substance.

  • William Dhalgren

    DMZ has been just OK. Not great, not bad. Don’t bother with Klaus.

  • William Dhalgren

    Yeah, the Klaus series has been disappointing, tbh. But I have a subscription at my local shop and I keep forgetting to cancel that book. I hate to NOT buy it, because they’re a small shop and I don’t want them to get stuck with them. So I just keep buying them and reading them.

    LOL

    I decided on Transmetropolitan because I have loved the others.

  • William Dhalgren

    Had a blast. A wee bit too much whiskey, I think. But fun.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Just enough time for me to spoil it for you. Rey’s parents are still a mystery for now.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    It’s trying to communicate in mouse code. 1 scratch for cheese. 2 scratches for Christmas hat.

  • I watched Santa Who?, the documentary I Am Santa Claus and then the MST3K version of Santa Claus. Also just finished playing some Titanfall 2, which I bought a year ago and never touched. The documentary was the best part.

  • Hello.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Yes, I love them although I don’t play them very much at all anymore. I had nearly all of them at 100% but then they either got reset or had to be re-downloaded. It’s too hard to do it all again, so I’m just having fun.
    I was a massive Super Mario fan back on NES and SNES. I was unbeatable. I will still play Pac-Man to decompress sometimes although the online versions are hardly the same as the arcade ones.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I love that you’re into the Lego games

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    No, we just had breakfast and now I’m playing Lego Marvel Superheros with my kids. Fun stuff!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Not pops!

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I think everyone’s out to lunch, Sailor. 😉

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Dracula Club!
    Assemble!!!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s what i assumed

  • Indianamcclain

    The red band trailer for The Shape of Water gives away a lot of the movie.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I would gladly employ her services! 😛

  • Ripley would have a field day!

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Ah, yes, in that case I agree with you. I’m ok with older stuff going up.

  • Maybe it’s scratching to let you know it wants a Christmas hat ;P

  • I don’t mind family guy. But when new episodes of hit tv shows go up just so they put up the spoilers right away that’s when they should be taken down.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    LOL I’m not sure the one at our house has a cute little Santa hat. 😉
    I get goosebumps anytime I hear it scratch and get near the wall.

  • Mine was a lot of fun. What about yours?

  • Year One

  • Looks cute tho

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    We have an unwanted early Holiday presence: a Christmas mouse. The little bugger has been scratching inside the wall for a few days now. It woke me up at 4am and I’m too bothered to go back to sleep. We put poison in the wall crack but I guess it didn’t take the bait. (I truly hope it’s the only one.)

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/db95c4abae9abbd5223a39cdf6368a3623fe45306326d5772911bd5a865cec3a.jpg

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Shhhh! Don’t complain! Enjoy them while you can! (Especially for those of us without streaming services.) 😉

  • Like don’t get me wrong. I like watching family guy clips but how is that not copyright infringement?

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I had never heard of that, how interesting! I suppose I could see Mark Hamill in it and it would have been interesting to see him bring the quirky side of Mozart to life. That laugh is really an interesting characteristic. 🙂

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Of the ones I’ve read, I’d rank them thusly

    Batman Year One
    Daredevil
    Transmet
    Paper Girls
    Klaus

  • ResonanceCascade

    I almost never hear about Amadeus these days, but it is an incredible film.

    Apparently Mark Hamill played him in the stage play around the same time and was allegedly the director’s favorite for the film, but the studio didn’t want Luke Skywalker in the movie. Not sure I believe the second part, but it’s a fun legend anyway.

  • ResonanceCascade

    They’re like animals. I HATE THEM.

  • William Dhalgren

    Same here.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I liked DMZ
    Batman/Daredevil/V for Vendetta are all classics
    Never heard of klaus and witch
    So my vote goes to paper girls

    Because i just got it and i want to know if it’s any good

  • Indianamcclain

    I’m seeing it on Friday at 11 pm.

  • William Dhalgren

    I have a stack of graphic novels by my bedside, and I’m having trouble choosing which to read next.

    The Invisibles: Say You Want a Revolution
    Paper Girls
    V For Vendetta
    Transmetropolitan: Tales of Human Waste
    Transmetropolitan: Year of the Bastard
    DMZ: Friendly Fire
    Daredevil: Born Again
    Batman: Year One
    Klaus and the Witch of Winter

    Thoughts?

  • ResonanceCascade

    I’m glad I got the earliest possible tickets for exactly this reason.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Rented dave made a maze
    1 down
    7-ish to go

  • Indianamcclain

    It’s weird because they’ll be quick to take down certain reviews with trailer footage, but bootleg clips can stay up for an extended period of time.

  • “Elli-ott”

  • YouTube needs to up their restriction policies

    Nooo, their bots are rogue enough as is.

  • B.B Phone Home Alone?

  • YouTube needs to up their restriction policies. It amazes me how people can upload almost full episodes of shows in 4 parts and they don’t get taken down.

  • But there’s no way they can get money from them.

  • Oh yeah it made like $750M. It was huge. Narnia 2 did $500M. After Disney gave up the franchise it never did good again.

  • You just earned some awesome points my friend.

  • Indianamcclain

    Views

  • TheDeadFellow

    Fuuuuuuuck I hate that. Like what posses them to do that?

  • Home_Alone_BB_Ben?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’d watch anything involving Michael J Fox. Love that guy.

  • Indianamcclain

    Once Last Jedi is released I’d recommend staying off of YouTube in case bootleg clips show up in your recommended section.

  • Indianamcclain

    I seem to remember the first Chronicles of Narnia, which came out around the same time, being a bigger hit. Maybe I’m mistaken.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    This year was back loaded with great shit.
    I had to wait almost 10 months before i had a solid top 5

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I watched that doc listen to me marlon, just to see if he mentions it

    He doesn’t

  • ResonanceCascade

    My top ten list has shuffled almost entirely over the last two months, and I still have at least ten acclaimed movies left to see. Crazy year.

  • Dat Dom Casual font doh.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yes sir

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It comes out the day after Christmas
    Treat yo ass

  • The studio is not called Studio-Free Studios! Good god!

  • Including Michael J Fox!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It had a crazy amount of talent behind it

  • Never heard of this one… Welp, looks like I’m headed down a rabbit hole of unreleased films.

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • I appreciate a good slow burn.

  • Yup

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I just don’t have the time
    I can watch two films in the time it would take to finish it.
    But it’s definitely on my list

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I’ve got it – the late Nora Ephron! She had to have made the cut!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I hate it

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Vince Vaughn is bad fucking ass in it.
    But it’s a slow burn. The action doesn’t happen till after the first act

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You better not have cut one of mine!

  • True but some of y’all wrote some great reasons why.

    I think everyone will be more interested in the individual rankings bc some of those are crazy.

  • Those are mighty big words to be spewing around these parts.

  • TheDeadFellow

    It’s the sand, right? It’s coarse and gets everywhere.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s much better than John Wick 2

  • Sailor Monsoon

    There’s nothing to write.
    It’s either star wars or empire and everyone knows why
    And everyone knows why attack of the clones is the worst

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I sometimes listen to Enya, so I would say yes. 😀

  • I think it comes out soon on bluray. I’ll pick it up then.

  • Yes Ben and Sailor I award you the “I didn’t know I’d be happy you two wrote nothing until now”

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    It’s ok. I did not know much about him until I watched the movie. He had near misses with death because he practised fasts that would last for weeks at a time. In the end, he was shot very much in the style of Pope John-Paul II.
    The movie is worth seeing at least once. Attenborough directed it, Kingsley is beyond amazing, and Day-Lewis has one of his first speaking roles.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    When You break it down like that, it sounds way more impressive than it actually is

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You’re welcome

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I keep forgetting John Wick 2 exists
    You gotta see brawl in cell block 99 my friend

  • My top 10 rn has Logan and John Wick 2 battling for #1

  • Some of you guys wrote SO DAMN MUCH for those rankings. Whether you like it or not this post is having multiple pages or it’ll be a mile long.

    Nice writeups tho

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The shape of water is the number one film i really want to see before i make my list.
    I’m skipping mother and all the money in the world and if i miss star wars, i miss it

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s easy peasy baby

  • TheDeadFellow

    The three I want to see before I can start are Last Jedi, The Shape of Water and All The Money In The World. Plus I’ll also throw in some other stuff like mother! in the mix.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I honestly had no idea someone killed him.
    That’s how little i know about history.
    I thought he died of pneumonia or some shit

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’d like to hold out because there’s a handful of movies i really wanted to see by years end but the top ten waits for no man

  • TheDeadFellow
  • TheDeadFellow

    I’ve seen about 48 (and counting) myself but I’m going to hold on making an official top ten until March or so.

  • William Dhalgren

    Anyone else like instrumental stuff like this? I found this last night by accident and like it a lot. Not sure I would file it under Celtic. It’s pretty different from the usual New Age Celtic anyway.

    https://youtu.be/pUfGjWYpE-I

  • William Dhalgren

    Man, that sounds like work.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    That’s a rough average of nearly one per week added to the other random/obscure stuff you watch on a daily basis. That’s consistency.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Please don’t tell me I “spoiled” it for you. 😉

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m preparing my end of the year mega movie write up and I’ve seen 47 films that came out this year.
    I thought it would be more.

  • Crazy to think that in 2005, King Kong’s $550M box office was universals 4th highest grossing film overall.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Never got around to it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    ……somebody assassinates Gandhi….?

  • TheDeadFellow

    IT’S SNOWING OUTSIDE U GUYZ

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s my 2500th film
    Which, if i watch an additional 6 films on top of my regular movie a day schedule, should be my last film of this year

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It was already written!
    But if it’s any consolation, it’s a great post

  • https://youtu.be/dXlao2KNYjQ

    First 30 seconds are clever. Rest is meh

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    That’s too bad. 🙁

  • God dammit I gave ya all day to write it! If I saw this comment I wouldn’t have done a post.

  • I got a Christmas supper/party to go to too!

  • He’s stubborn.

  • Return of the Jedi is the best of the OT so get on it!

  • Nah Streisand didn’t make the cut.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Campion may very well be your overall winner. You MUST have her. It blows my mind that you didn’t come across her before.
    Also, how about Streisand? She’s a pretty decent director.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    @ChildofBellona:disqus in right on the money. You should definitely do the book.I I would think that finding a publisher is the hardest part.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Back to School is highly quotable and a great classic. Dangerfield killed it everytime. What a legend.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Or The Piano. Or The English Patient. You are missing out. Amadeus is a fucking genius film and I would recommend you get the uncut/extended version for the greatest viewing experience. I’ve seen Gandhi many a time and it still holds up but there are some scenes that are rough as hell (too realistic). I always feel strange when I recognise the actor who assassinates Gandi in other films. LOL

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I don’t know if I would be efficient, however. Sailor would easily convince me that his purchases were necessary at the same time as getting me to buy my own swag. But I cannot be angry because he opens me up to new cinematic horizons! 😛

  • 🎅Poppity🌟
  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Festivus board game?! Can I play?

  • Indianamcclain

    Any particular reason why you haven’t seen Return of the Jedi?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/073653e9b37fce39cf78e37349be9d366e62e4d9428b6fc7ddda370218009ce2.png
    I’ve seen this film but I’ve still never seen return of the jedi
    Or the sound of music
    Or Gandhi
    Or Amadeus
    Or a single wong kar wai film
    But I’ve seen the legend of hillbilly John
    That’s my life

  • I know, I failed and mentioned it down the line. I mean, I only watched it every weekend with my friends for 2 years… But that was 20 years ago, so…

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s also what I’ve heard

  • I just get a Scarlett Johansson/Major vibe from this.

  • William Dhalgren

    Probably

  • Indianamcclain

    It is. If anything Dave Franco’s performance was the thing that felt a little off for me.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You drunk

  • Indianamcclain

    The twist is the most interesting thing in the film, and Douglas Trumbull’s effects are awesome as well.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’ve heard his performance is easily the best part of that film

  • William Dhalgren

    And you dont even know it.

  • William Dhalgren

    I don’t believe for a second that John Oliver (or any of these fucks) does anything because he thinks its right.

  • William Dhalgren

    I don’t think it really matters.

  • William Dhalgren

    And, I ain’t gonna lie, I have always liked TFF.

  • William Dhalgren

    TMP is a fucking good movie. Whether you’re a Trek fan or not.

  • William Dhalgren

    Huh?

  • Indianamcclain

    It works within the context of the film. When you start extracting clips for a trailer it does seem off.

  • William Dhalgren

    His speech patterns seemed wrong or exaggerated in the trailers. Was throwing me off.

  • William Dhalgren

    Christmas party with my closest friends tonight. Kilted up for it and brought some Bushmills Red. Someone put on some funk, poured some shots, and that was that. Good times.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He’s really fucking good at depicting real life people.
    I’m really excited to see what he does with shel silverstein

  • Indianamcclain

    Disaster Artist was pretty good. Definitely one of Franco’s best performances.

  • Indianamcclain

    The Prince of Darkness score is also a favorite amongst a lot of fans.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I bought the thing board game and it’s just sitting there, all alone.
    All alone.

  • They done goofed.

  • No. Tomorrow I’m playing the Festivus board game. I have to go back and get a refund. They should know the difference between midnight and say, 11:59.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Based on how you worded it, I’d assume it was tomorrow but that sucks that you have to wait another day for the gremlins

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Too late

  • So if you bought a ticket to a movie that starts at midnight tomorrow, would you not assume that was happening tonight?

  • Feel free to write it if no one else has.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I believe it was

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yes
    Yes i did

  • You bought that peanut butter film you want us all to watch.

  • TheDeadFellow

    (remembers that Dunkirk comes out in a few weeks)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1VJ39nVIBk

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Man, I’m way behind because i was just about to write this article.
    Why isn’t this trailer bigger news?
    This is the film that Cameron was supposed to make after Avatar and it feels like it just got dumped on YouTube

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I didn’t buy that film

  • You paid $55 for a film in German?

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon
  • It’s true.

  • Like?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yeah but I’m buying shit that’s cool!

  • NO! That’s not how it’s supposed to work! I nominate @poppitypop:disqus to be your sponsor

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s probably true

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Me!

  • Not gonna lie, my local Sunrise just got their Fox shipments in, so I cherrypicked all the 80s blu-rays. Guess who’s watching Back to School tomorrow!

  • Admittedly, it looks better than what I was expecting from Rodriguez, but I’m cautious about it… I don’t think it will be a big earner either. I kinda think the uncanny valley is intentional here. I like it, but I bet most viewers won’t.

  • Ghost in the Shell 2? https://youtu.be/aj8mN_7Apcw

  • They’re so young and thin!

  • I think it was one of your recommendations for this season, haha

  • Oh, gotcha

  • I know I’ve commented about liking it. Probably the LTA for PotC 5

  • (covers my stack of discs in blanket)

  • Maybe it was a comment lol or when you did that post on the franchises.

  • Normally you can be ejected without refund for talking. The parties encourage sing a long, quotes, etc

  • It’s better than 4.

  • When did I review it? lol

  • Bad sailor. Who’s your sponsor?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Diabolik dvd is my new favorite site
    I just found it a couple of days ago and I’ve already ordered 150 dollars worth of swag

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I want refn to introduce jodorowsky to him because i want jodorowsky to be a villain

  • TheDeadFellow

    Alternatively, Refn could be a boss fight or something. Because Kojima.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I think he would’ve already been revealed but seeing him do shit with del toro would be awesome

  • TheDeadFellow

    So that explains everything.

    Also calling it: Refn is going to have some capacity of involvement in Death Stranding.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Oh they’re great friends
    Refn was the one that introduced him to mads

  • TheDeadFellow

    Oh Christ, apparently Hideo Kojima has been meeting with Nicholas Winding Refn.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Ice harvest is good stuff

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Maybe he attacked him like hoffman “attacked” those women
    Sailors cooking up dem hot and spicy takes

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He liked the 5th one!?
    God damn it duke

  • I agree with you.
    They Live us good too

  • Ah in that case then maybe relevant but Oliver could have gotten Hoffman’s approval first. I’m sure if they’d have talked about it before they could have made the situation not seem awkward.

  • I got the quote wrong. Internet fail.

    https://youtu.be/STjkQk7zedw

  • I’ll have to look for it after mah shift.

  • Indianamcclain

    I think the problem is that Star Trek 5 feels like 2 different movies. They could’ve made a whole film about a villain taking over the Enterprise, and converting members of the crew.

  • Read his review.

  • What are “relax noise restrictions”?

  • Joe Newman

    No, it’s not really explained. It reminds me of a Doctor Who two-parter.

  • No, they give you props and relax noise restrictions. They’re selling a sweet new Mondo tshiri

  • Oh, I had The Ice Harvest and Mixed Nuts in front of it, but they’re stuck on “long/short wait.” A downside to their mail service.

  • Indianamcclain

    So he’s just some random God? I was assuming that maybe they explained what he was, and I missed it.

  • He a fan of the Captain Jack Sparrow Show?

  • I think Duke will have words with you two gentlemen.

  • I probably deserve it.

  • Rocket boots.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Think of it like coal in the stocking

  • I know, brother. I was joking. It’s the rocket boots.

  • So my Christmas marathon will now include… Pirates of the Caribbean 5? This is what happens when I don’t keep track of my Netflix DVD queue.

  • Joe Newman

    Trapped being.

  • Indianamcclain

    I meant the one that they confront near the end of the film. He says that he’s been trapped on that planet for a long time.

  • Very much so. Especially in this area.

  • The first scene when they are having a camp fire.

  • Indianamcclain

    Lucky

  • Here in Canada yeah.

  • I was going to write this exact same response.

  • Indianamcclain

    For me I think there’s a time, and a place for a conversation like that. Cornering someone at a Q&A in front of their peers doesn’t seem appropriate. But that’s just me.

  • Lol he was quoting Swingers.

    Flavortown.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yeah but it’s a relevant thing
    Not only is it a hot topic but the film is literally about sexual harassment
    The RDJ thing was bullshit journalism

  • Mr. Canada I like that.

  • Oh, I think I was quoting Guy Fieri, lol

  • Indianamcclain

    I feel the same way.

  • Indianamcclain

    Who exactly was the omnipotent being in Star Trek 5?

  • It’s a Swingers reference. A la “That’s so money”

  • Definitely not. Tarkin was worse.

  • Indianamcclain

    Someone’s doing a double feature?

  • I love Star Trek 5 and St:TMP is great on a scifi scale on its own merits.

  • Seems extremely left field. I remember an interview RDJ did once to promote a Marvel movie and the guy started asking him about his fathers death and stuff and RDJ left. Hoffman didn’t come to the Q&A to talk about sexual allegations. I feel John Oliver was there hoping to get a scoop.

  • Didn’t get to make The Room/The Disaster Artist screening tonight but thankfully they’re doing another one tomorrow.

    Paul Solet (Bullet Head, Grace) interview up in an hour. Just finished transcribing.

  • I’m not sure what this means (good, I hope).

  • Indianamcclain

    I finally watched Star Trek: The Motion Picture, and Star Trek 5. Neither were as bad as people made them out to be.

  • Interesting. I’m not a big fan of “audience participation,” but I might give it a try for a movie I’ve seen a lot.

  • You’re the man behind the face.

  • I’d definitely notice without the controversy. No question.

  • Didn’t get to see it. Just read about it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I just read it.
    He did what he felt was right.
    I would feel bad for hoffman if i thought he was innocent but i don’t

  • Indianamcclain

    No, the Drafthouse hosts the movie party. They give you alll sorts of props to use while you’re watching the movie.

    I went to a movie party for Tim Burton’s Batman and it was awesome. They gave us Cap guns, along with Scratch & Sniffs. They also threw fake money in the air during the parade scene.

  • “Merry Christmas you dirty rascals”.

  • Curious what you mean by that last sentence, but I’ll leave it for your post.

  • I’m interested in knowing what people would had thought if we didn’t know. Like if nobody reported about the moustache controversy. How many people would have been like “Was something up with Cavill’s stache?” I think a lot of people had a problem with it bc they were looking for it so therefore it was more noticeable.

  • Stop spoiling my hopefully awesome post.

    But yea I’ll definitely be talking about Flashpoint but not to reset the universe.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Slow your role, Mr. Canada.

  • I guess so, but I liked the first half of that movie a lot more than the second.

    His buddy for Best Supporting Actor.

  • Did you reserve the theater?

  • Don’t feed after. Got it.

  • That’s so money.

    Flashpoint. Flashpoint. Flashpoint. Keep what works (Wonder Woman, etc), and scrap the rest.

  • To each his own. I found it very distracting. Took me right out.

  • That’s awesome!

  • Indianamcclain
  • Indianamcclain

    No, he was hosting a Q&A for the 20th anniversary of “Wag the Dog”.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    On his show?

  • Indianamcclain

    I did the same thing. I watched every trailer, and tv spot for that film. However, for Last Jedi I’ve only seen two trailers and that’s it.

  • Ooo I missed her. We’ll talk over email.

  • Indianamcclain

    What did you guys think of John Oliver confronting Dustin Hoffman? I thought it was inappropriate personally.

  • William Dhalgren

    I, for one, like lemon.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You’re out of your fucking mind

  • If I leave an action film with a feeling to go kick some ass, the film did something right. So JL had that going for it.

    Post coming money relating to my experience with JL and where I think the DCEU should go next.

  • William Dhalgren

    In some ways I agree with you, but I purposely know next to nothing about this film, and that adds an element of excitement that was absent from TFA for me. I gorged myself on news for that movie.

  • Agreed. After that it was fine.

  • God no.

  • Holy smokes. That’s crazy.

  • Indianamcclain

    Those are fun

  • William Dhalgren

    -Not sure where Kemosabe lives.

    -I did not know oreodogvomit before our previous home. That’s where we came to know one another. He was kind enough to invite my son and I to see Rogue One with him and his Star Wars fan group here in Austin. He texted me out of the blue a month or so back and asked if I wanted to go see TLJ on opening night. I had slipped this year and didnt realize that Alamo had started selling tix. So, thanks to him, my son and I have tix opening night. Dude is a seriously nice guy, man.

    -This would be my second time meeting an Exile IRL.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Put her up against lexi Alexander.
    Both have 2 films (lexi actually has 3 but nobody has seen the 3rd) and they’ve both directed superhero films

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I desperately want to talk about the film i just bought but i can’t because it’ll ruin my last Christmas recommendation.
    But suffice it to say, buying this film is literally a dream come true.
    I’ve wanted it for a long goddamn time but it’s only ever been available in an out of print Japanese laser disc.
    Edited
    William Dhalgren has been encouraging me to write a book of the 100 most obscure films ever made and if i ever did, this film would be number 1 with a bullet.

  • I didn’t find it that noticeable. My call is everyone should quit their whining about something barely noticeable. It doesn’t take you out of the film.

  • Nada. Jenkins almost didn’t make the cut since she’s directed 2 films. But she’s too popular to not include.

  • Indianamcclain

    I thought it was at its worst in the opening cell phone vid.

  • Never!

  • I didn’t find it that noticeable. You could tell it seemed a bit off but I was expecting way worse. Sometimes I thought it was fine.

    That one meme going around about cavils face was further photoshopped it seems.

  • Yeah, it’s a Drafthouse movie party. This will be my first movie party.

  • Indianamcclain

    Seeing Disaster Artist tonight, then driving an hour to see Shape of Water tomorrow.

    Completely forgot that Star Wars is coming out next week. I’m not nearly as excited for that as I was for Force Awakens.

  • Indianamcclain

    I wasn’t aware of the stache removal going in, and even I could tell that there was something wrong with his face. I was questioning if that was even Henry Cavill.

  • Indianamcclain

    Is it at a theatre?

  • Indianamcclain

    The snow was awesome! I went on break at work around 9 and we made snowballs outside. I haven’t seen snow like that since 2003.

  • Indianamcclain

    What’s your favorite John Carpenter score? I think Escape From New York is mine.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It better get a best original screenplay nomination

  • Gremlins. Midnight.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Deservedly so.

  • TheDeadFellow

    So any thoughts on Get Out scooping up major awards from critics circles? Deservedly so or no?

  • – Do you live near Kemosabe?
    – Did you know oreodogvomit before [redacted]? Is this the first Exile meetup?

  • TheDeadFellow

    Yeah, in terms of how increasingly absurd they get. All true, however.

    Yeah, it sucks.

  • Yo bold my pulls

  • The college stories sounded like cartoons?

    Sorry about your dog. Cleaning can be therapeutic.

  • Irish remedy, eh?

  • Avoid the yellow variety.

  • Yeah. They still had the uncanny valley thing going on, but at least they looked polished.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m betting hard money you have jenkins vs bigelow

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I saw snow for the first time. So yeah, I got that going for me.

  • King Alvarez

    Worse than Leia or Tarkin in Rogue One?

  • Sorry, I’m cranky today, haha

  • *sigh* thanks for ruining my fun Ben lol jk

  • I’ve done that already too haha. Haha send me who you think should be there. I’ll send you who I have and paired and we can work out any kinks

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Righty-o
    I’ll even put assign them with who i think would be their best competition.

  • There’s no debate. Even the effects team said they didn’t have enough time to make it look good.

  • Give them an inch, and they’ll take a mile

    … of garland! 😀

  • Spontaneous decision to see JL while at the mall. I will but to bed the Cahill Stache debate once and for all!

  • TheDeadFellow

    OH MY

  • Not even. Yours are tame to a couple.

  • *wonders if Campion made the cut*

  • Feeling under the weather – my entire family was sick last weekend- Uncle Stevie got it
    Going out for beers after work-
    Comic book convention on Sunday

  • TheDeadFellow

    Got an email of when the dog is going to be picked up: Somewhere between the 14th to 16th. Breaks my heart but it has to be done. Mum’s going to arrive home a few days later and she won’t even be able to say goodbye, which sucks.

    Also did some cleaning around the house today and even got to meet up with a buddy who visited the house telling me all sorts of insane stories of former lovers and the college he went to. Some of the stories of the latter almost seem like insane cartoons.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    That will be interesting for sure. They are currently doing a Jane Campion focus on ARTE, so I’m enjoying it. I caught The Piano again last week (a great flick) and they played Portrait of a Lady though I did not get into that much. Campion also has a second season of her show Top of the Lake: China Girl. The storyline is a bit easier to follow than the original Top of the Lake that aired in 2013 but I’m still quite lost.
    Looking forward to the new female-oriented LTF! 🙂

  • TheDeadFellow

    lol, of course I’m the one with long quotes.

  • King Alvarez
  • I put everyone’s up but then I usually drop a couple from each. I might add them all. Depends. Some of you wrote some good stuff but it’s long. Except at least 2 of everyone’s TO not make it.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Are you going to use everyone’s quotes for the Star Wars rankings or just a select few?

  • William Dhalgren

    Thank you, Sailor.

    😛

  • William Dhalgren

    I’m ready for a break. My busy season is about to come to a close next week, and it should be pretty lax for a bit after that.

    The wife and I got out and saw Three Billboards last night, and we both pretty much hated it. Sucks, too, because we were stuck in a theater watching a terrible movie instead of enjoying the first snow we’ve had in 7 years.

    I finally got around to reading Peepland last night when we got home, and it was a real disappointment. But I snagged some other graphic novels that were recommended to me at the second hand bookstore yesterday – I will probably get into those this weekend.

    Going to see The Last Jedi with my son and oreodogvomit (THANK YOU oreodogvomit!) next week, so that is something to look forward to.

    Hope all you Joanies and Chachis are keeping it real out there.

  • I was actually going to email you. I had about five I couldn’t decide from. I got my 20 picked but send me an email and I’ll double check to make sure I didn’t miss any.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I will give you a list of female directors that need to be included

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The best kind of random

  • It was extremely random.

  • William Dhalgren

    Some cool shit.

  • Wtf did I just watch?

  • Time for an UPDATE on AFI, LTF, and SW RANKING!

    In news that I’m sure @poppitypop:disqus will be pleased with, I’ve decided to expand my LTF! Female Directors miniseries into a full blown season due to there being way more popular female directors than initially thought.

    @sailormonsoon:disqus you’re next for AFI 100. @thatguywhopostsalrightgeez:disqus you’re on deck for the 19th for Citizen Kane. @imastardogchampion:disqus follows you on the 26th with It’s a Wonderful Life.

    Also, last day to send me the Star Wars Rankings. Post gets made this weekend and will be up on the 13th.

  • King Alvarez

    I don’t have a lot planned. Hopefully I get around to watching some more Punisher, and a few movies I’ll need to convince the wife to watch. Last weekend we watched Crooked House. Pretty good Agatha Christie mystery. I also put together my 10 favorite albums of this year on a playlist. The only movie score to make it was BR2049. https://open.spotify.com/user/jtrevenen/playlist/1RuUmjPYyl54s1fAbtUmvj
