Everything & Nothing: The Road To Black Panther

 

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.


Does anyone ever read these short introductions to the weekend thread? I feel as though I could ramble on about anything and none of you would be the wiser.

Instead of turning this into a mini rant like I originally planned, I’m going to suggest a friendly bet. I bet that Black Panther will be the most successful MCU film ever. If I’m right, each and every one of you that takes the bet has to write a review of a film of your choosing. If I’m wrong, I’ll eat an entire bag of black licorice. Which as you all know is the food of Satan.

So what say you Exiles?

Black Panther vs Avengers: Civil War.

Let the betting commence.


 

  • Yippie!

  • Lex

    No fear! I am back!

  • William Dhalgren

    It doesn’t need it, but it certainly allows for it, since the story revolves around the Predator returning to hunt during the hottest years. Now that I say that, I wouldn’t be surprised if someone decided to connect the Predator to global warming and make an allegory of it.

    Anyway, back to my point: Seriously, you could set a Predator film in just about any time period. It would be basically the same movie, but that’s never stopped anyone before.

  • William Dhalgren

    I need to go back and give that another watch. It’s a pretty small movie, right?

  • Peacesquad

    Excited for Black Panther guys!!

  • Every year

  • I usually am.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Prepare for schlock

  • Just noticed it’s on Amazon Prime. Might check it out.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yes

  • The Michelle Rodriguez one?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s terrible but I’ve read some pretty strong defenders of his latest film

  • Bullet in the Head looks so bad compared to old Walter Hill films. I hate seeing directors past their prime.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s true.
    He didn’t become a badass till a couple of years later

  • Indianamcclain

    I don’t think he was a big star back in 1989 when they filmed Predator 2. But I agree, Danny Glover was an even worse choice than Adrien Brody.

  • Sorry if that’s spoilery. Then again, I don’t know if it’s true.

  • Oh man, what could’ve been…

  • Indianamcclain

    Suburbs? This is the first I’m hearing about this. We need a trailer already.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I would’ve bought Wesley Snipes

  • Indianamcclain

    It’s hard to top Arnie in terms of someone who could believably take on the Predator.

  • I can’t argue that, but if they’re gonna make sequels I wish they would use a greater variety of settings and time periods.

    EDIT: Again, curious how Shane Black uses those rumored suburbs.

  • Indianamcclain

    That’s probably the only redesign that I like.

  • Indianamcclain

    I didn’t know know he played Scarecrow. I loved him as the Question in Justice League Unlimited.

  • Predator 2 ain’t a masterpiece, but I think it’s worth your time.

  • Indianamcclain

    I like Lethal Weapon Gary Busey, and Bill Paxton.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Don’t you bring them into this!

  • Indianamcclain

    To be honest Predator is one of those films that doesn’t really need, or allows for a sequel. Though I am excited to see what Shane Black does with it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Fuck yeah he does

  • P.S. Jeffrey Combs rules

  • Do you like Gary Busey and Bill Paxton?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m not going to say you can skip it but you can skip it

  • My main takeaway from that season is how terrifying they made Scarecrow. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/bddba2e4799c6422814fd27cd90b794843b2926299c868883ccaf5553eae5a86.jpg

  • Sailor Monsoon

    They ain’t all gems

  • Indianamcclain

    I still haven’t seen Predator 2. No reason in particular, I’ve just never gotten around to it.

  • Indianamcclain

    Rewatching Batman TAS Season 4. “Love is a Croc” is easily one of the worst episodes of the series. I liked Baby Doll in her initial episode, but she’s pretty annoying in this episode.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t buy glover as a badass either.
    I don’t buy nuffin!

  • I might give Predator 2 the edge for originality. But I completely agree with the second part of your comment.

  • I think my main gripes are…
    – They treat the original Yautja like shit
    – It’s almost a remake

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s definitely better than the second film and is a masterpiece compared to alien vs predator 1&2

  • Indianamcclain

    I still like Predators. It’s not on the level of the first film, obviously, but it’s still a fun genre movie.

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Duke got the zingers tonight.

  • It’s about time one finally dropped.

    Wait, what type of ball are we talking about here?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Monsoon dropped the ball.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I want brody to be the last man standing but it could’ve been like battle royale.
    Where there was no main character and you didn’t know who would be the ultimate badass

  • You mean like if Walton Goggins was the last man standing?

    EDIT: More like Topher Grace, because Goggins is badass.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I wish it was a twist that he was the lead.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He’s amazing in it but i just don’t buy him as a badass.

  • I guess I like that they didn’t typecast, which is weird because I’m all about the action heroes.
    And I like how committed Brody is. He’s also kind of an irredeemable asshole in this role.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Brody in that is the perfect example of an actor trying their damndest to crawl out of a pit of miscasting.
    I like him in the role but that should’ve been the rock

  • Reeeally curious about The Predator, especially after all the reports.

  • I’m watching Predators. I hope it’s better every time I see it… but I like Adrien Brody.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    My expectations are looooow
    Edited
    It can’t be worse than amazing Spider-Man 2

  • I sure hope it proves me wrong.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Venom has potential as a character

  • It’s growing on me.
    But if there’s no Spidey, I don’t see the point.

  • Someone had to make it

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I can see it

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I like this joke

  • TheGreenMalice

    Tom Hardy as Venom is still just a rumor, based on that trailer.

  • I can’t fathom this.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Hard rumor from the rumor mill:
    Woody Harrelson is Carnage in the new Venom film

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Touche

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He’d be amazing as Hugo Strange

  • – My appreciation for Walter Hill is growing
    – His shootouts are explosive
    – Gina Gershon has always been a babe

  • I’m due for a rewatch.

  • I quit Facebook this month…

  • *pal

  • He’s in The Dark Knight in spirit.

  • For a minute you got my hopes up

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • Sailor Monsoon

    Why is Tom Waits not in more movies?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Crowding in on my turf eh?
    I’ll allow it

  • I didn’t know The Orville was airing a new episode tonight.

  • Lol Inwas fine. Made a mistakenthough

  • TheGreenMalice

    Always refill your health bar before moving past the drill bits… noob.

  • TheGreenMalice

    Bout time. Later loser.

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • Yeah had to urn background music off gor it

  • TheGreenMalice

    Shits Fyre!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    But it’s soundtrack isn’t

  • TheGreenMalice

    That game is a fad…

  • Yep.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    You fell.

  • Currently testing live streaming capabilities:

    http://www.twitch.tv/dontbemeaninternet

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Ah very nice

  • TheGreenMalice

    Probably, but I still have a backlog of PS4 games I am working on. I picked up FF XV and Dishonored 2 not long ago.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You’ll get to them faster than you think.
    There’s not that many great triple A switch games

  • TheGreenMalice

    I was watching videos for Celeste the other day, and I have played the first Steamword. I may get around to these eventually.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’m not good at math. I’ll take your word for it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Technically it’s 1 out of 7

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Oh I’ve at least seen Dirty Mary Crazy Larry. 1 out of 4 aint bad.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Dirty mary crazy larry/ race with the devil 2 pack
    OSS collection

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Now I know to avoid Houston.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I also recommend celeste, battle chef brigade, golf story and steamworld dig 2

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    More movies I haven’t heard of. What are those first two?

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon

    2 day shipping baby

  • Curse you Monsoon!

    *shakes fist*

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Shhh
    It’s too late now

  • All you got to do is see 15/19 of the films to be eligible! I let @childofbellona:disqus use his 13 tho! Be a participater Ben! Don’t you want to be part of the sweet Facebook shares!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Good hunting my friend

  • By the end of February! And you only need to see 75% of them. Just leave the ones you haven’t seen off!

  • TheGreenMalice

    Oh, I am not paying retail. I will find them cheaper. I am kicking myself for not buying Mario a couple weeks ago for $38.

  • February!

  • Is it arriving via drone?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    There are no deals.
    If you’re not waiting till black Friday, you might as well buy them now

  • TheGreenMalice

    Now I just need a deal on Zelda and Mario…

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Welcome to the party bud

  • TheGreenMalice
  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Tango & Cash beats all.

  • LIQUID TELEVISION

  • Same! Couldn’t get into GOT!

  • I do.

  • I refuse to believe that being born in 1980 makes me a millenial.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I tried.

  • TheGreenMalice

    It would have worked better a week or two ago…

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Then walk outside and wait until I call you, then walk back in. I’m not ready.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I know.

  • TheGreenMalice

    You have always been one of my favorite people on the site, even from back in the day.

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • William Dhalgren

    No, Ben.

  • William Dhalgren

    Ladies and gentlemen: The Dunning-Kruger effect.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I am never early nor late.
    The party doesn’t start till i show up

  • TheGreenMalice

    May the force be with you.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Just make a list of the pixar films you have seen.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    You’re too early. The party hasn’t started yet.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    9n

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yeah
    I win nerd

  • Alright.
    Sorry Duke.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t understand
    Was MacFarlane a robot the whole time or is he a duplicate of his clone that died on that asteroid?

  • I… I didn’t know that raptor was attached…

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I love the raptor at the end.

  • William Dhalgren

    Check and Mate.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Nope
    Stop yourself

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • Unintentional selling point…

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Michael Caine is fun and Japan is wacky.
    I just saved you 90 minutes

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I wanna talk about the season finale

  • CTRL + Z

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Patience.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Get it outta there!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Watch the first
    Skip the sequels

  • I actually just put Cars 2 in my DVD queue…

  • Just The War for Late Night.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Me neither. But if it’s by the end of March like Monsoon says, then I think I might watch them. There’s enough time.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Go watch star trek

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Books?
    Who reads books!?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I watch Star Trek when I decide I want to watch Star Trek.

  • I’ve never seen the Cars films sequels, so I’m using that as my excuse not to participate.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    By the end of March

  • William Dhalgren

    How many Conan books and comics have you read, sir?

  • I like to imagine if we ever hit it “big,” there’s a sudden influx of users and we’re the host/nerd at the house party who realized that it got out of hand.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    When do we have to send New Duke our Pixar rankings?

  • TheGreenMalice

    Shouldn’t you be watching the new episode of Star Trek?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    It would be our highest shared article.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The sad part is, if i was to make an article that simply said that, it would get more comments than my regular reviews.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I think it’s his Magnus Opus.

  • 👏🏼👏🏼

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Incorrect

  • Sailor Monsoon

    “It was fun”

  • Me!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    If they have blu’s, it’s probably bleed over from the dvd box

  • DO IT

  • William Dhalgren

    Keep dreaming, youngblood.

  • William Dhalgren

    He was a terrible Conan.

  • William Dhalgren

    You’re missing out, Kemo. I’m quite the hugger.

  • I could’ve sworn my $5 bin was full of blus, but it’s been a while.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    No hugs.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    No more than 2 minutes
    And they need to lower their blu ray box to 5 dollars
    That two dollar difference is keeping the untouchables off my shelf

  • NOOOOO

  • Russell has comedic skills.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Two minutes tops.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I thought he was the best part of that film.
    He didn’t elevate it but nobody could

  • William Dhalgren

    Wow, if we keep agreeing on stuff we may have to hug.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I thought the movie stopped dead
    But I’m also not the biggest fan of that movie

  • William Dhalgren

    Red Heat is a winner. Wal Mart bins are for suckers.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I used to do it all the time but now I haven’t in probably six years. I don’t know that I ever bought anything that way either…maybe the Rocky and Bullwinkle movie…

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Used Cars goddamn it!

  • William Dhalgren

    Yeah, I can’t really fault him. Bad casting, bad writing, bad directing, bad idea all around. But he was hype for it. Wanted to write his own sequel. LOLOLOLOLOLOL

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I second this motion.

  • Waiting for my wash, about to watch Red Heat…
    Springboarding Cap’n’s comments below:
    Who of you has dug through a completely disorganized Wal-Mart Walmart bargain bin for more than 5 minutes? Be honest. I’ll be the first to raise my hand.

  • William Dhalgren

    LMAO

  • William Dhalgren

    I worked there when I was a teen. Wal-Mart can go blankety blank itself.

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • Cap_N_Jack

    I may be having a very similar youth to you.

  • William Dhalgren

    I failed to mention I was by myself. Under the bleachers.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He was in a horrible conan film

  • William Dhalgren

    Whoa.

  • There are dozens of us!

  • William Dhalgren

    He was a horrible Conan.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Me too!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Get outta my house attic bros

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I hate the Wal Mart, it just happens to be the only store of its sort in my town.

  • William Dhalgren

    I’ve been wrong before.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Nobody is nostalgic for work

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I may be having a very different youth than you.

  • I gave that show two tries. Couldn’t get into it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It really doesn’t deserve more print than that

  • William Dhalgren

    Damn. That almost makes me want to shop at Wal-Mart. Almost.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Game of thrones should’ve won yo ass!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You are incorrect

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Russell and Schwarzenegger, yes.

  • Can’t believe I’m saying this, but Justice League won me over.
    It was the first time I can remember where he wasn’t just grimacing and growling.

    EDIT: Don’t get me wrong, the movie is trash, but I liked him.

  • William Dhalgren

    Handjobs under the bleachers on Friday night?

  • William Dhalgren

    I’m not a big Momoa fan.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    “Braven was fun.”

    –A Monsoon Review

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I highly doubt it. But I’m not sure the other two can either.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    You got something to say?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I haven’t seen cliffhanger in forever. We’re talking about Guardians of the Galaxy. He showed up, and the movie went up a level just for him being there.

  • Maybe unintentional comedy. https://youtu.be/eS47L5yU2k8

  • It’d be hard to disagree with you after seeing Rocky.

    Can Stallone do comedy tho? Not action comedy but straightforward comedy.

  • Oh cool. I dug the trailer. Looked like the kind of little thriller I would eat up in the early aughts.

  • William Dhalgren

    The Last American is a worth a look. The art is interesting, but an acquired taste. Longbow Hunters is awesome. I’d read it in loose issue as a young fella. I’ll probably end up reading all of the Transmets. I don’t feel strongly enough about the rest of those to recommend them.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t know if I’m going to be writing a review about it but Braven was fun.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I could watch that for hours

  • William Dhalgren

    You’ll be here soon enough.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I guess it’s good at what it wants to be. There were things that I liked (their rivalry with Not Hank Hill and Daria), but it wasn’t really my thing.

  • TheGreenMalice
  • William Dhalgren

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I disagree immensely.
    Even in cliffhanger he couldn’t hold his own against rooker

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I don’t mean that as a negative. I think when he showed up, he elevated everything around him.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I think I might have if I was watching tv in the era where they were a big thing. But I got into them after they were no longer in the public eye and the voicework and wordplay makes me laugh every time. I think they’re genius.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I’ve not read many of those. I have read all of Transmet (because Warren Ellis is like unto a god). I’ve read Descender, I’ve read DMZ, and I’ve read Rai.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    That’s a pretty solid deal.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I hated Beavis and Butthead.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t think anyone has accused Stallone of having too much charisma

  • William Dhalgren

    OK, starting with 2017-Present

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    He stuck out because he has too much charisma.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I knew it.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Watch it, old man.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Damn

  • William Dhalgren

    I’ll look it up, Cap. Thank you.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Sadly no. I was hoping so. It doesn’t appear to be streaming anywhere (much like Simpsons).

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s not on hulu?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t remember it being heavy but it’s definitely not an action film

  • Cap_N_Jack

    This is my feeling as well. I like it, but I don’t think I’ll be binging it like I do with Beavis and Butthead.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I think king of the hill is amazing but I’ll never watch it again.
    And Johnny Depp’s episode is the second best thing he’s ever done

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I almost got the first four seasons of King of the Hill for 20 there today…but I wasn’t sure I’d get my money’s worth.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    They have some great deals on shows

  • So I’ve heard. Haven’t watched it yet, but I assume it’s a bit heavy for my mood right now.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Cop Land is a great film

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It was a good find for 20 bucks at the Wal Mart.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s a hell of a collection

  • Sailor Monsoon

    But Used Cars man.
    But Used Cars…

  • Cap_N_Jack

    The collection I got also came with the movie.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Huh, I had the opposite read on GOTG2. Whenever Russell opened his mouth I felt like he was in a different movie. Stallone on the other hand felt like a fitting part of the batshit crazy pirate universe. Plus his delivery of the line ‘No he did not.’ makes a lot of a little,

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yes

  • Sailor Monsoon

    True but he’s always consistently good.
    And i thought Russell was the best part of GOTG 2 and Stallone was one worst.
    He stuck out like a sore thumb

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Was the fourth the new episodes? I think those are really, really good.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I was surprised too. My instinct was to say Russell, but I didn’t like his turns in Hateful Eight or GOTG2. And then it hit me that Stallone is the only one of the three who has moved me emotionally (First Blood, Rocky…and possibly Creed).

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I have the first 3 box sets
    Never bought the fourth

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I bought the complete Beavis and Butthead on dvd and I love it. I like Office Space. I like Extract. I like portion of King of the Hill. I enjoy Silicon Valley a lot. But boy do I love Beavis and Butthead. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/37f7a6e712eb11e86914043fbf7a21a78bb3cdf4eab91719347f729da2f0b8c5.gif

  • Hmm, I’d say that depends on the movie.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Sold on both

  • Speaking of blu-rays, they’re some of the straggler movies in my various multi-feature discs. I try to watch a blind buy every Sunday.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s really interesting

  • William Dhalgren

    The first is obviously awesome. This one is hilariously bad. And sometimes hilarious.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Well, like I said, my big recommendation is Prophet. It’s a modern take on weird euro-sci-fi from the heavy metal area. Every page is another big sci-fi concept too weird to ever be seen on the silver screen. I deeply love it and it’s short.

  • TheDeadFellow

    That it is.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t think there’s many things I’m more nostalgic for than old MTV

  • William Dhalgren

    Yep. Jumping in shower. I’ll try to make a list when I get out.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It’s when you cheat at Battleship.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I haven’t seen either

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Oddly, I think I’d stick up for Stallone as being the best actor of the three though.

  • TheGreenMalice

    What is pegging?

    🙂

  • William Dhalgren

    I don’t think I’ve read anything by him.

  • Russell is the most fun actor of the 3

  • Cap_N_Jack

    He writes primarily old-fashioned hardboiled noir books that owe something to 60s and 70s cinema. It’s all dames, PIs, violence, and occasionally some sci-fi mixed in. Good stuff.

  • Cap_N_Jack
  • William Dhalgren

    Never heard of him. Let me google.

  • William Dhalgren

    What are friends for?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I just resisted making a pegging joke. You’re welcome.

  • William Dhalgren

    Have you seen this one? This is right up Sailor’s alley.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Aw
    Well ain’t you a peach

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Also, if I had to take a wild guess, I bet you like books by Ed Brubaker.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    How does the sequel look older than the first one

  • Cap_N_Jack

    That’s awesome. That’s mostly what i like too. Care to tell me what stuff you’ve enjoyed. I’d love to make (or take) some recommendations. I mean, if you haven’t read Prophet you’re missing out…

  • You got me.

    I just found out one of the main actresses is the sister in BTTF

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Big trouble in little China.

  • William Dhalgren

    I don’t know why I never read past V1. I remember liking it. And, yes, I read comics. Probably 10 or so trade paperbacks a year. I just don’t read superheroes unless it’s a must-read or a classic that has been recommended again and again.

  • William Dhalgren
  • Cap_N_Jack

    I didn’t know you read comics at all. The author of that (Jonathan Hickman) is one of my very favorites. I’ve read almost every comic he’s written

  • William Dhalgren

    You should join us on Hangouts, Cap. What I gotta do to get you on there?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I found a coded message in New Duke’s post:
    “Starting Bosom Buddies”
    “Starting Bosom Buddies
    “Staring [at] Bosom[s]”
    “Staring at Bosoms”

    I for one am shocked.

  • William Dhalgren

    What about it so good?

  • William Dhalgren

    East of West, yes. Only Vol. 1.

  • William Dhalgren

    Hi.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I haven’t even heard of these.

  • William Dhalgren

    I woulda pegged you at 67 at best, man.

  • William Dhalgren

    Big surprise.

  • William Dhalgren

    Me too.

  • Starting Bosom Buddies. The opening along is hilarious.

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Fuck your obnoxious generalizations.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I love it too…I mean I own the extended cut…

  • Which is the most fun?
    – Lock-Up (Stallone)
    – Red Heat (Schwarzenegger)
    – Executive Decision (Kurt Russell)

  • Indianamcclain

    I love the movie, but I agree.

  • TheGreenMalice

    It depends on what source you use, but the term was coined in the mid 80s, and almost all of the date ranges end in the late 90s. There are some that end it in the early 2000s. Your ranges are completely off base.

    After 2000 hasn’t been given an official name, but are usually called Generation Z or Post-Millennial. The Millennial generation is Y.

  • Wth millennial now includes early 80s? I thought it was 1989-2000.

    Although I also use millennials to describe anyone born in 2000+

  • TheGreenMalice

    A love rock?

  • TheGreenMalice

    I think there might be one, but not sure…

  • Depends how stereotypical of one you are!

  • DryButSoupy

    I thought we were Marshall.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I want to throw a rock at you sometimes.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m 112.
    But I’ve been told i don’t look a day over 80

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t think there’s anyone here that was born in the 70’s.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    You’re in your sixties. That’s the only thing that explains how many movies you’ve seen.

  • TheGreenMalice

    Early 80s to early 2000s is the general range. Throw a rock in this community and the chances are high that you will hit a millennial.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    We’re all millennials

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    That’s for when I’m joking.

  • Where’s the gif?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’m a millennial so go fuck yourself.

  • DryButSoupy

    I don’t bother with 4K. In fact, since blue ray players still play DVD’s, if I buy a movie that isn’t, like, a favorite, I still get DVD’scause they’re cheaper.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s a modern blockbuster that has a cannibal holocaust reference.
    Which gives it a pass in my book

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I guess I was bored throughout, but I would gladly take a spinoff about John C Reilly.

  • Nah. I’m good with bluray.

    I’m so anti-millennial it hurts.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I like ’17 one.
    It’s riddled with cliches but i thought it was fun

  • Maze Runner is goodn

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Still, I’ll take the messy ambition of the ’05 one vs. the sterile pandering blockbuster of ’17 any day.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    But more lumpy might turn into a jaimie bell situation

  • Cap_N_Jack

    You say that like there’s some reason not to have a ton of time with Lumpy.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Okay, so you’re describing yourself.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Or literally any other character.
    Fuck, I’d rather have more time with lumpy the cook

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Yep. I would rather have had more time with Adrian Brody or the coach from Friday Night Lights.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s one of the most pointless subplots in film history.
    It kills the film dead and adds nothing to the plot

  • Me either. It’s a snub to millennials for constantly wanting the newest tech.

    I can bash millennials since I am one.

  • I just can’t do YA. I’ve tried.

    EDIT: Hm, phrasing.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I also resent that there’s no payoff to the Jaime Bell plot, even in the extended edition.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The film is overlong and should be trimmed a good 25 minutes but the good shit is really good

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Yeah, that’s my favorite.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Make everyone uncomfortable.
    It’s the only way

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The fight against the two t-rexs is still awesome

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Kong ’05. There are at least three breath-taking sequences in that, bolstered by the emotional connection one had with those characters. I don’t know if you strip away the films surrounding them which is better, but I still want to say ’05.

  • I wanna give the slight edge to ’05, but I don’t know how much of that has to do to CG/blockbuster fatigue. I was thrilled by the V-Rex fight in theaters.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I don’t know what this is supposed to mean.

  • Better King Kong fight scenes?

    Kong ’05 v Kong ’17

    Let them fight!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    **Reads 20 minutes after buying for the beauty**

  • What I find always cheers me up is watching something that always puts a smile on my face. Something care free and simple. Not sure if that helps but works for me.

  • Only buy ateelbooks for films you will watch time and time again. DOnt buy for the beauty

  • BOO

  • That’s Sailor Russian pet seal. It’s the source of his gypsy powers.

    @sailormonsoon:disqus

  • 4K is for millennials

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I did that and they asked me to stop. They said I should read them or leave because I’m making the other students uncomfortable.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Go touch em
    With your eyes

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It’s funny, I can see volumes of Saga from where I’m sitting in the library at this very moment.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    The line must be drawn.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    “Sticky, confused, and alone in front of a computer”

  • Sailor Monsoon

    To quote every woman in my life
    “Damn, that was quick”

  • Sailor Monsoon

    “He died the way he lived”

  • Cap_N_Jack

    My atlanta review is live people. http://filmexodus.com/review-fxs-atlanta/

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Probably dehydration from all your porn watching.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I don’t think we need anything past blu ray

  • I do not understand this reference, but uh… live long and prosper.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Oh I’ll be long dead before that happens

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’m having First Contact Picard speech flashbacks.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Future you is a lucky dude.

  • I’m fine with blu-ray being my final format.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    8K says hello.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Fuck i wish.
    My eyes would be flooded with cartoons and porn non stop

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Encoded contact lenses. You put them in and watch. It’s the next big thing.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I wish

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It won’t go past 4k.
    That will be the last version.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Is that you?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Now I remember why I don’t buy movies. DVDs become Blu-Rays, Blu-Rays become 4Ks, and so on.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s the thing about personal taste.
    Everyone connects to things differently

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You made the right decision

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I don’t begrudge you loving it. It’s constantly raved about and I’m readily willing to admit there’s something about it I’m just too dead inside to connect with.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Jack.
    My heart.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I want to love Saga, but I just don’t. Ever read East of West, Prophet, Injection or Lazarus?

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Sailor Monsoon

    Who could afford such extravagances in this economy?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Get a room.

  • Indianamcclain

    It almost makes it look like an Asylum movie.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’ll comment twice

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Look for it tonight. And comment to make me feel loved.

  • I thought it was a D2DVD remake at first.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Write a review!

  • Indianamcclain

    That’s the worst one

  • Indianamcclain

    The worst offender of that is the Blu-Ray cover for Near Dark. They tried to get it as close to Twilight as humanly possible.

  • I’ve actually been putting shows in my task app, to make the glut of choice less intimidating, haha. What a glorious time to be a fan of media.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Yeah, you’ll love it.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    This is different for him. Replacing the wide-eyed energy is a sort of melancholy pathos. It’s a show about being lost in a world that doesn’t fully make sense to you but that you desperately want to be alive in. It’s like if you filtered the coen brothers sensibilities through the urban african american culture of Atlanta and threw in a little Louis CK for good measure.

  • You sold me on “Louie, but better.”

  • Cap_N_Jack

    That’s where I’m watching it yes. Be aware it’s a very specific sensibility. I didn’t actually expect to connect with it.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    It seems we’ve all got a rotation or a list these days.

  • You said it’s on Hulu? I’ll add it to my rotation.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Glover can do no wrong

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Wow guys, Donald Glover’s Atlanta is really stellar.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I see. Thanks.

  • I’ve only participated in a couple through Reddit. Someone buys a bunch in bulk, and then mails out the discs to individual buyers. I think they keep shipping costs lower this way. Obviously risky though. I think you need to get pretty familiar with users before you take that plunge.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    This is helpful. How do group buys work?

  • You watch the deleted scene? Wasn’t much, but I dug it. https://youtu.be/MxquS8JYUuY

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It’s fine. I interpret every upvote that way.

  • When you wish there was a “I support this” button instead of a simple “I like this” upvote.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s as bad as it gets.
    That’s worse than the Secretary one, which was made to look like 50 shades of gray

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’ve been waiting for an adaptation of the girl who owned a city for most of my life.
    But Hollywood will most likely fuck it up

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • If you really want an enabler, r/steelbooks makes announcements, and Hidef Ninja often does group buys from other countries (they often have the best steels).

    Plain Archive, Nova, and Kimchi are also suppliers. But I’ve gotten most from Zavvi.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    So you’re saying they should market films to look like me?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s the redbox effect.
    You gotta market every film to make it look like whatever is hot right now.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Agreed. Blade Runner, while not YA, was a nice subversion. And Ender’s game is a nice double subversion (i.e. you are the chosen one, but only because you are tricked and forced into being such).

  • Sailor Monsoon

    There’s not enough films about teenagers dealing with apocalyptic threats that aren’t about the “chosen one”

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I hate when dvd editions change up the graphic design. Wal-Mart has a rack of unrelated movies out with cardboard slipcases made to make them look like the poster for 50 shades of grey.

  • Indianamcclain
  • Cap_N_Jack

    I want a version of these where it turns out teens are entirely ill-equipped to fix their dystopia and the adults have to step in after they get killed…but market like it’s just YA.

  • Boo-urns.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The creatures are cool but they’re less than .5% of the film

  • The creatures are neat, though, so I’m in the black.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It ain’t great

  • Indianamcclain

    At least it has the illustrated logo from the poster.

  • Watching The Maze Runner. These guys are sure well-fed and groomed to be surviving on their own. So much coifed hair.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Negro
    In Spanish it’s called negro

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Does it come in black?

  • Indianamcclain

    Yep, that’s it. If ain’t broke don’t fix it.

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • Cap_N_Jack

    Thanks.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    On…our…hands….?

  • Indianamcclain

    While we’re talking about steelbooks, I’m still waiting for someone to release steelbooks of Batman (1989), and The Fly (1986) with their ORIGINAL theatrical posters on the cover. There’s a steelbook for Batman, but it has a weird photoshopped version of the Batsymbol on it. I want one that looks like the VHS cover. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a1c2015a3f845c46b2a92418006120102e04e68c296f6311230df70aed98e82e.jpg

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Take a hike, pal.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I think we got a serial killer on our hands..

  • Cap_N_Jack

    And personally, I would say the business probably has to trump the personal stuff too (I was thinking recently how Aranofsky and Villeneuve probably feel awful today having both cutt Johann Johannson scores from their last films).

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Sailors got his thumb on the pulse of….People without pulses….

  • TheGreenMalice

    Thank the Dark Lord, I have been saying this since the release of TDK. Finally you get it.

  • Indianamcclain

    Again? It’s good to know you’re on top of this stuff.

  • Indianamcclain

    Right? That’s messed up. But I mean if you’re a studio exec that doesn’t like a directors cut/vision you’re kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place at that point.

  • Indianamcclain

    I think so. They have steelbooks that I haven’t seen anywhere else.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Okay, cool. So this is a pretty good site for this stuff?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I mean, it would be crazy rough if he got fired on top of his family stuff…

  • Indianamcclain

    Here’s the right one. https://m.us.zavvi.com

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Its the best looking blu ray in existence

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I would screenshot his obit but it’s all the way down there

  • Indianamcclain

    Sorry wrong link. Hang on

  • Poppity 🎀

    I admire you for opening up because it takes real guts. I know how you are feeling because I have off days as well even with the aid of medication. It has taken several months to get the proper type and strength of meds, with it constantly needing tweeking. It could be that your current anti-depressant is no longer effective enough. Honestly, it sounds like you could probably increase your dosage. Prepare yourself for a transition period for it to really kick in as well, though you have probably already experienced that. I adjusted mine quite significantly at the end of last month and I was in a daze for two weeks, almost feeling dumb. It’s only been a few weeks that’s I have felt back to my old self again.
    Definitely go and see your doctor. Don’t hesitate to talk about how you are doing here on a regular basis because Lord knows we’ve all been there and are likely still there! 🙂

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    OHHH, I remember that one being really cool. I still haven’t seen it, but I’ll look into it.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

  • Indianamcclain

    R.I.P Reg E. Cathey. He was great in a lot of films, but I mainly remember him from The Mask.

    Alright, so steenboks? I’m thinking about starting a collection. I have a vast digital library I’ve acquired over the years but my physical movie collection is really poor. Anything I should know before potential wasting time and money on this hobby?

  • Indianamcclain

    Now there’s a rumor that Zack Snyder was actually fired from Justice League. What went on behind the scenes of Justice League is more entertaining than the movie was.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    There are too many people who refuse to accept that the world they see is not the way the world is for everyone.

  • Jooshua

    That sounds like a devilish cocktail. If you were near me I’d take you out and we would party it up until you were kicking ass and being the badass you were so rightfully meant to be. Depressions sucks. I’m familiar with it and I’m aware of how it can be. Just know that you are not only awesome.. but loved.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Wind River is a pretty damn good movie.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Thanks. I sincerely appreciate it. My depression manifests itself in me thinking, even if I know it’s factually not true, that no one really likes me or enjoys being around me, so I appreciate it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That-a boy

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Agreed

  • Jooshua

    Hey Cap. I’m so sorry to hear about your woes. I don’t know how much stock you put into internet life, but I think you are an awesome possum. Everything is going to be okay my friend. You are going to kick life’s ass and be the best, most legit AF human being on the planet. I think of you in the highest respects and that you are going to go through this life kicking ass and taking names. All salute Cap_N_Jack!!

  • DryButSoupy

    BMD can be very judgey. Progressivism is the new Puritanism.

  • Feel better Cap!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Ooof guys. Not doing so hot today. Having trouble making myself get out of bed and the depression is getting worse. I may need to go to a doctor if things don’t pick up in the next couple of days.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Good man.

  • (runs into class late with papers falling out of my books)

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Sadly no. No it is not.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I’d love to hear your take on any of this William. I tend to think your last statement there is entirely accurate, but it’s also why I stay quiet. I have the moral and social views of the past generation (I’m conservative, Christian and kind of uptight), but I think our country is irrevocably moving in another direction. I’m not mad about it. It’s out of my control, but I want to believe what I believe without fighting all the time.

  • Is Atlanta Russian for Back to the Future?

  • Beautiful.

    This might be the seventh sign, people. Duck and cover.

  • William Dhalgren

    I’m trying very hard to not add my thoughts on all of this, and I’m having more and more trouble justifying censoring myself. I’ve grown tired of deferring to people I disagree with in the hopes that they will respect my right to disagree with their values. Hasn’t happened yet. We’ve just allowed one moral majority to replace the old moral majority.

  • William Dhalgren

    Fight? No.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Sailor knows all about dem trap hoes

  • Poppity 🎀

    The problem is that the Disney features are immediately coined as Classics upon their release. There is no argument about it and no one seems to question it.

  • Poppity 🎀

    I have to agree with you on this one.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Youngest woke me up at 5am. The only good thing I can say about that is that I saw some of the events live. Since there is an 8hr difference, most of the action happens when we are sleeping. And bonus, they did an interview with Albert de Monaco this morning. I’m strange.

  • Poppity 🎀

    A little birdie told me that The African Queen is still up on the AFI 100 for a review. *whistling*

  • Poppity 🎀

    You should have to watch all 100 if you lose!

  • Poppity 🎀

    I like it. I reminds me of a retro arcade game, like the library in Maniac Mansion.

  • Poppity 🎀

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Should’ve watched goodfellas
    But seriously, I’m hoping next week is better

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Just the ol’ clinical depression acting up. Been a long week.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    And hopefully your night turns around

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You ain’t wrong about that

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I love the world they created for John Wick
    It made me want to learn more about the minutia

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Same with politics and religion.

    Sorry to be morose, I’m having a rough night.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Looper is a great example actually. The details that sold me on that world were the little ones (the eyeball drugs, the junk flying motorcycles, the gold bars). Another favorite example is the initial John Wick which elevated a basic Liam Neeson action story just by setting it a world where assassin’s have hotels and codes of conduct.

    I think it’s a principle that goes for most genres, it’s just more noticeable in Sci-fi. I want specificity in details. I don’t want a generic cop type hero. I want a wry-humored, not quite washed up new york cop with an implied emotional inbalance but a good heart. I don’t want generic wild west, I want sweeping vistas, characters who talk without contractions, and a sense that the past is another nation.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    There is no point.
    You’re never going to convince anybody of anything and you’re just going to end up pissing everyone else off

  • TheDeadFellow

    Larry Fong, baby!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Attention to detail.
    The bigger the budget, the smaller the world’s get.
    I don’t know how you feel about looper but i believed in its universe.
    It felt like effort was put into its world where something like the DCU falls apart the second you think about it

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Nah, it rarely is. I used to fight on slashfilm about gender politics all the time and it made me really unhappy. It’s not like I know anything anyway so what’s really the point?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Huh, yeah, I could get behind that. I just hope it’s weirder than the trailers sold me. I have this obsession with sci-fi that has weird little touches to make it feel more other-wordly. Part of my frustration with something like Star Wars is how little the world is stretched in each installment. Meanwhile some of my favorites like Gattaca have details like the six fingered pianist thrown in that make the world feel unpredictable and lived-in.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    BMD
    A certain celebrity that we just mentioned was involved in a certain scandal and i threw my two cents in.
    Wasn’t worth it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Sci-fi Casablanca

  • Cap_N_Jack

    On here or just in general?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’ve opened that can of worms once and it did not go well

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m imaging clicking on everything with a sassy comment attached to each part

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Agreed. I’d not force my own sexual mores or policies on anyone.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s a very complicated situation with no easy answers

  • Cap_N_Jack

    What is the idea though? I don’t mean this as a put-down. I like high-concept weird sci-fi where I can find it, but I can’t figure out what the hook is for Mute.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Can’t wait
    I like ambitious ideas and i try and support them as often as possible

  • Cap_N_Jack
  • Cap_N_Jack

    I don’t know. I was too hard on the first trailer (something about it looked cheap to me), but I like Rudd and I like Moon a lot (minus a final voiceover, it’s a masterpiece). What about you?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Ok, I take it back, I’m going to go on my brief rant. I’m very old-fashioned sexually. I don’t sleep around and I’m really careful about never seeming too forward. I don’t think this is the right stance for everyone in the world (though it is right for me), but I think the free sex atmosphere of modern dating makes situations like the ansari one common if not inevitable. I can’t tell you how many stories similar to that one I heard during college. I’m not saying guys aren’t to blame (they are), but sex gets so screwy when it’s always an option.

    God, I sound old.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I still feel like stabbing you though.
    Just cuz.
    But soaking of bowies progeny, you looking forward to mute?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It sounded like he was drunk and he misread the situation.
    But now every man in Hollywood has a target on their back

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I doubt it will. I don’t want to go into a long thingummy that is ill-advised but I don’t think there’s enough damning evidence for Ansari to go down with the Weinstein sinking ship.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I like the second season more
    I dig the show and i hope that harassment allegation doesn’t kill a season 3

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I assumed. But I’m a jerk (despite our new commenting policy). I’ll make us even by making a typo of my own. That work? You get the massage?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Boy you know i already done edited it!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    You mean other than Duncan Jones?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I keep seeing Wind River mentioned around here so fine, I’m watching Wind River now. I’ll report back with my findings.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    How do you feel about that show? I liked the first season a lot but not so much the second. I also think its clear function as a voice for Ansari’s socio-political opinions is a mixed blessing.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The man had too many good songs

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I completely forgot he was in that

  • Cap_N_Jack

    He really does. He’s also a highlight in the first season of Master of None.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’ve seen that video and i agree.
    He improves every show he’s apart of

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Nah, I was in a thrift store earlier and they started playing Changes and I just had to stop and listen like I had never heard it before.

  • Cap_N_Jack
  • Sailor Monsoon

    The only way you could offend me is by saying David Bowie is overrated.
    Dems fighting words

  • Cap_N_Jack

    He really is. There’s a video somewhere of him and the cast of bob’s burgers reacting to the bob’s burgers porno and he ad libs this bit about his ideal porn being a woman riding a horse in a totally non-erotic manner that is just amazing.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    H. Jon Benjamin is one of the funniest people on the planet

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It’s really good. H Jon Benjamin’s work as Jason and the Coach in that make me laugh with almost every line.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Well again, my goal was not to offend so much as put out feelers on how people felt. I didn’t grow up with them, and I just don’t find there to be much substance there.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I love me some home movies

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I couldn’t remember if it was him or triple h.
    It was disappointing

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    lol. I’m guessing the other guy was Brock Lesnar. Yeah, that match could fit on a gif but it was fun.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Then watch them!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yes they do

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I had it to watch the goldberg vs somebody that I’ve already forgot fight and it lasted like 5 seconds.

  • Are there even more than 100 good musicals?

    Do Disney animated films count as musicals?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’m legitimately shocked. You’re full of surprises.

  • Never! There’s good shit out there to watch!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I actually did for a month

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I like them more as well but i don’t think that’s enough to consider them overrated

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    You have the WWE Network?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Get your free month. They have a lot of fun stuff on there (home movies which is an underappreciated animated comedy for example). I can’t afford anything sadly.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I mean, I can’t judge by studio, but some non-disney animated films from that era that I like better are Prince of Egypt, Iron Giant, and Mask of the Phantasm.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Hulu is the only streaming service i don’t have

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Even if the scripts are weak are the characters are unmemorable, the soundtracks are stellar.
    Which puts them ahead of every of animation studio in existence.
    Till pixar that is

  • Cap_N_Jack

    The songs are indeed pretty good.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    You’re a monster…

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The songs are still good.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It’s on hulu (which somehow I have a free month trial of despite having taken advantage of that deal twice before).

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I wrote that after you posted yours

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I have not the cable so i have no idea when I’ll be watching it

  • Cap_N_Jack

    See above.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It’s really something special (I say having watched two episodes). I feel like it’s the show I wanted ‘Louie’ to be.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    State your case. Or don’t. The important thing is I value your opinion and respect you for it whether you state it overtly or not.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s been on my list

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I disagree

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Thanks for the recommendations everyone. Somehow I ended up watching the first two episodes of Atlanta on FX. It’s really, really good. The show has a distinct voice that mixes humor, surreality, and bleak purposelessness into a really intriguing, well-filmed little series of episodes.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You better have watched goodfellas

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Stop that

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Yeah considering I’m stepping the top 10 to top 100

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’m with Sailor.

  • DryButSoupy

    It’s a modern classic.

  • Nothing can top the bet Sailor and i have put together.

  • I got that. I almost watched it tonight.

  • DryButSoupy

    I think Black Panther is going to be big…not sure about the biggest Marvel film ever. But I’m not going to take the bet…because you could be right. I hope it lives up to/deserves all the praise it’s getting. Wonder Woman didn’t, and I think this has the same “social change” momentum behind it.

  • DryButSoupy

    I don’t even know anymore.

  • Wait a minute. Are you telling me that MTV doesn’t stand for Music TV anymore? What decade is this?!?!

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • DryButSoupy

    I wish I could speak in Cockney rhyming slang. I might have to see if Rosetta Stone offers a course….

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Funny. Just mentioning that movie puts me in the mood to see Snatch.

  • DryButSoupy

    You’ve probably seen it, but Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels always puts me in a good mood.

  • William Dhalgren

    You tell em, Ebenezer!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Agreed.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Icarus. Victoria. Both on Netflix. First is a documentary, second is a movie filmed in one long take (long live the long take!).

  • Kemosabe 🦇
  • DryButSoupy

    What the heck do the Grammy’s and MTV have to do with music?

  • I have a habit of blind buying

  • Oh I know. And it was awesome. Makes me sad we won’t see these characters again.

  • William Dhalgren

    Yeah, mine too.

  • William Dhalgren

    Oh, Duke.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    There’s an after credits scene, btw.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I love the style of that movie.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    You own more than 50 movies that you haven’t watched? What is this madness?

    Edit: 136???!!!

  • TheDeadFellow

    It’s dumb as hell but in a good way. It’s stylistic as shit and gloriously so.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Atta boy.

  • My goal is that by the end of the year I’m down to only 50 movies I own that need to still be watched. I’m at 136 rn.

  • Spamming the open posts with the Grammys or MTV music awards and whatnot. I don’t see none of y’all doing that!

  • I didn’t even get through the first episode of the revamp. It get any better?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s terrible

  • TheDeadFellow

    That’s fine. He just gets on my fucking nerves.

  • William Dhalgren

    I have not seen any evidence that would lead me to believe that J-Mart is our “resident obsessed music lover”.

  • I was about to lose my goddamn mind if Skull Island didn’t show the reunion of the WWII soldier with his family.

    Skull island is a solid blockbuster.

  • William Dhalgren

    I’m afraid I’m not convinced.

  • DryButSoupy

    Burn After Reading isn’t the best Coen Bros film, but it’s solid. Brad Pitt, of all people, is pretty funny in it.

  • TheDeadFellow

    The only correct answer imo.

  • TheDeadFellow

    He was the one who started the whole “Rey is a Mary Sue” thing, blabbed about some rather questionable things about Amy Adams’ character in Arrival and – in an action that did not surprise me – has been accused of sexual assault in which it led him to stop gabbing on twitter like he usually does.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Piece of shit.

  • Has anyone seen the video where if you slow down Adele she sounds like Sam Smith?
    @joshuamartyniouk:disqus our resident obsessed music lover

  • Going in Style was pretty funny and charming. Don’t know if it’s on Netflix.

  • Ocean’s Eleven
    The Meyerowitz Stories
    Back to the Future

  • William Dhalgren

    Get busy livin’, or get busy dyin’.

  • William Dhalgren

    Of these options: Full Metal Jacket.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I mean, worst case scenario I get bored and just watch Shawshank redemption again which is on Netflix because really, with that movie, why would you ever not watch it again?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Some options I have:
    The cloverfield Paradox
    Goodfellas
    The Godfather Part Two
    Being Elmo
    Full Metal Jacket
    Ocean’s Eleven
    The African Queen
    The Wedding Crashers
    Burn After Reading
    A Serious Man
    The Meyerowitz Stories

  • William Dhalgren

    Well, that’s never worked for me, my friend, but whatever floats your boat.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I don’t know. I’m depressed but I’m a weirdo so if a sad film is good enough it will still cheer me up.

  • William Dhalgren

    Let’s qualify this: What are you in the mood for?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Ok people, recommend some movies to me. I want to watch something I haven’t seen tonight…preferably streaming somewhere.

  • William Dhalgren

    Watching the Winter Olympics with the wife. This is putting a damper on my movie watching plans.

  • William Dhalgren

    Como chingas, eh?

  • William Dhalgren

    Oh, sweet. I have Hell or High Water on loan from my dad and he told me a couple of weeks ago that he has Wind River to loan me. I’m a big fan of Sicario.

  • I’m loving it so far

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    That’s a fun movie.

  • ResonanceCascade

    Hell or High Water, Sicario, Wind River. Sheridan calls it his Frontier Trilogy.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Ay dios mio…

  • William Dhalgren

    What makes up the trilogy?

  • William Dhalgren

    Prince of Salad

  • Second film today that stars John Ortiz. Ditto for John Goodman.

    This too is Unprecedented!

  • Watching King Skull Island. Love the opening title card.

  • Man I want to watch that again. Haven’t seen it in ages!

  • Well they are referred to as the Disney Animated Classics so there’s validity in his comments there.

  • TRUTH! Not for all of them! Lion King I think is good. The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast aren’t that good imo. However, Aladdin, Mulan and Tarzan are great!

  • William Dhalgren

    I also disagree with this. A classic film is a classic film because of consensus. That I dislike a classic film does not stop it being a classic.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Working my way through a Ray Bradbury short story collection at the moment, but perhaps when I’m done with that.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I don’t follow. Let’s take an example: The Lion King. The film is, as far as I can tell, a bonafide classic. Kids love, it’s been canonized, and the songs are widely known.

    Now, I saw it and did not care for it. Not because of its status but because I think the film is legitimately weak in a number of ways (bad pacing, thinly drawn characters, and a predictable plot). As such, I might talk about it as being a classic film I dislike.

    I could, of course ,simply call it a film I dislike, but I think that’s less descriptive. I’m not lending credence to anything by referencing its status as a classic as recognized by a large number of people who aren’t me. In fact, I’m lending needed context to my criticism of the piece by establishing that it’s rated too highly.

  • William Dhalgren

    Short book, too.

  • TheGreenMalice

    By using the term classic, you lend credence to the term. If you truly felt the way you do, you would not acknowledge that an overwhelming majority feel that they are of the highest quality. You would simply state your opinion of the films without a qualifier. That is unless you were simply trying to get a rise out of the community.

  • It’s a slippery slope, my friend.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I looked it up. Sounds very interesting. I’ll look into it.

  • William Dhalgren

    It was Sammy, wasn’t it?

  • William Dhalgren

    Cap, I think you would like this book I’m reading. 334, Thomas Disch.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    We have our ways.

  • William Dhalgren

    Who told, goddammit?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Fine, you caught me. You died. this is purgatory. You masturbated too much in your youth to get to the good place.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I disagree. Strongly. Classic means the masses judge them as being of the highest quality. To denigrate a classic is to disagree with the masses. It’s a valid move.

  • William Dhalgren

    I don’t feel stable.

  • William Dhalgren

    Fake news.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    You had a small stroke. You’re stable now.

  • TheGreenMalice

    You can’t call them Classic and denigrate them at the same time. It’s an oxymoron.

    True Story.

  • William Dhalgren

    What just happened?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    That is entirely fair. I think from a certain perspective most obnoxious personal traits can be viewed as biological in nature (making people like me who act judgmental fairly morally despicable).

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Putrid Orifice Seismologist.

  • William Dhalgren

    Post office singer

  • TheGreenMalice

    I think it’s pretty clear listening to him that he has issues (for the lack of a more medical term) that he can’t control. I think they cause some of his more irritating personality traits.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Eh, I find I’m no longer much interested…I might be growing up…or something.

  • Indianamcclain

    Maybe Hunchback of Norte Dame will be up your alley.

  • Batman: Gotham by Gaslight
    Going in Style
    Once Upon a Time in Venice

    All really good solid films. Individual thoughts coming in next week’s what’s on the grill!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Some of which can still be heard in the initial teaser.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I had not until late last year. A girl was involved. I felt mediocre towards the movie. I lied to the girl. We are no longer together. True story.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    True story: I’ve never seen the Lion King.

  • William Dhalgren

  • William Dhalgren

    LOL

    Ugh

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Pile of Slugs.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I am also curious about this. His persona seems obnoxiously, and I feel like a tool for typing this, ‘woke’.

  • William Dhalgren

    Point of sale.

  • William Dhalgren

    Not defending him – my impressions of him haven’t been… positive – but what makes him a mysoginist?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Hot Take:

    Classic Disney films from the 90s like Lion King and Little Mermaid aren’t much good outside the lens of nostalgia.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    What did you watch and what did you like?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    He just seems…too self-aware. Like everything out of his mouth is calculated to either engender your love or offend you to an extent that he can feel haughty about it.

  • William Dhalgren

    Nah, you’ve made yourself clear. I was misunderstanding your intent. I just wish these two films would have used the Alien mythos as the jumping off point to do something different. I couldn’t care less about another Alien slasher film series.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Piece of Shit.

  • Willis is a PI. So he’s got a couple cases to take care of while taking care of personal business. More kinks come into play so it’s really great watching him and his partner juggle all these cases within a small time frame to secure everything.

  • I did something unprecedented this weekend. I watched every movie I recently bought within 24 hours of each other.

    UNPRECEDENTED!

  • POS?

  • Yea not a fan of new format.

  • Indianamcclain

    It’s really sad. He was so charismatic, and likeable when he was younger.

  • Indianamcclain

    I love how Donald Pleasance’s character takes sole credit for stopping the Anti-Christ when he’s being hauled away on a stretcher.

  • Indianamcclain

    Right, deleting comment

  • Going to see Prince of Darkness tonight

  • TheDeadFellow

    Max Landis is a misogynist, snide, self aggrandizing POS who’s barely written anything of decent worth, so your dislike is justified.

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Indianamcclain

    Villeneuve’s composer Johan Johansson passed away.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Looks like you’re starting with old episodes because the new ones are terrible

  • William Dhalgren

    I need to see both of those.

  • William Dhalgren

    What’s a happy Saturday jackass?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Been watching screen junkies movie fights. Turns out I really like Elijah Wood and really dislike Max Landis.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Mine as well. Somehow was raved about and still ended up underrated.

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I put down the merchandise and walked out. I don’t have a good physical collection so I’m still considering it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’ll give it a watch if it hits Netflix

  • ResonanceCascade

    If what I’ve seen (so it and Sicario), I also prefer Wind River. Sicario is a meaner, leaner, movie but Wind River has a lot more soul.

    Edit: or did you mean Hell or High Water?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Hell or high water was my film of 2016

  • TheDeadFellow

    To me it was. Especially the flashback scene and the coda at the end.

  • TheDeadFellow

    It’s my favorite of Sheridan’s tbh. I found it very emotionally raw with easily some of Jeremy Renner’s best work in it to boot.

  • TheDeadFellow
  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    The first two movies are canon for me. The rest are fan fiction in my eyes. Prometheus was it’s own thing and after 2 viewings on Covenant, I’m done with the those films.

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    It’s solid. Not super depressing. Nice slow burn of a flick.

  • ResonanceCascade

    I really like Wind River. I need to go watch Hell or High Water and round out the trilogy.

  • ResonanceCascade

    Yeah, I’d like to read it. Sounds like you landed about where I did on the movie, except I disliked Prometheus (though I respect it for trying to dig into some interesting ideas and being gorgeous).

  • ResonanceCascade

    I don’t think Scott and Lindelof set out to make it anti-science, but I think that’s kind of what they bumbled into. Between every scientist acting like a complete idiot, the flippant way it tosses evolution out the window, and Shaw “choosing to believe” stuff for no reason and then somehow being right about it, the movie had a weird message about blind faith (and I know a lot of people of faith were frustrated by its depiction of faith too, since Shaw’s idea of it was ludicrous).

    I guess I’ve given the impression that I wanted an atheist screed or something, but that’s not at all what I meant by “gods” (in this case, creators/rulers) or “faith” (in this case, just being stubborn and believing in stuff that you just totally made up).

    I’m not trying to be anti- or pro- religious, I just think the way the movie treats its ideas was pretty dumb.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Got a copy of Wind River and the soundtrack for Phantom Thread today. Probably going to watch the latter tonight and get depressed. Plus it’s cold outside, so it’ll make for perfect viewing conditions.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Everything needs more Noomi Rapace.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Liked it but prefer Prometheus. It lacks the grandeur of that film, the human characters are pretty underdeveloped and the third act Xenomorph fight is pretty redundant in comparison to the Lander fight (which was fucking awesome).

    But it does make for one hell of an exercise in space nihilism, with watching Ridley Scott basically thrashing his fists against the wall for two hours with killer gore, beautiful visuals and an awesome turn(s) by Michael Fassbender. I actually did a piece on this movie a few months back if you’re curious to read it.

  • ResonanceCascade

    I didn’t care for her character in Prometheus at all, but I love her as an actor.

  • It’s actually a decent flick. The story is good.

  • Happy Saturday Jackasses

  • Sailor Monsoon

    MUTINY!!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I think Bruce Willis is the absolute worst movie star turned DTV actor.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Heaven’s no

  • liquidsoap89

    Guilt is not an emotion I can comprehend!

  • You seen once upon a time in Venice?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I hijacked nothing

  • Saw a trailer for Hitmans Bodyguard. Looks better than the other trailers I saw.

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    Overall not bad, but easily forgettable movie. They need to stop retro fitting scripts to Cloverfield them. I liked the first two way better.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    No dice

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    Don’t!

  • William Dhalgren

    I just meant that that idea isn’t new or intersting at this point. I don’t remember thinking Prometheus was anti-science. Why do you think that?

  • William Dhalgren

    You spelled his name wrong, ya ass!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Needed more Noomi Rapace.

  • I see you hijacking the John Gavin post!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Stop yourself

  • DONT DO IT

    (do it)

    Jk, steelbooks aren’t worth it!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I think I’m going to start collecting steelboxes. They’re pretty cool. At Best Buy. Thinking about buying Incredible Hulk right now. Bourne Identify is nice too. Valerian is better than it has any business being but that movie was lame. I’m about to impulse buy. Someone stop me.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Tsk tsk

  • I don’t talk to the loons Ben. I like sanity.

  • I read it yesterday!

  • ResonanceCascade

    I think that’s the other thing that I think allowed me to enjoy it: I went in with the mindset that the movie was not part of the Alien franchise. I’m protective of the mystery around that thing on the Nostromo.

    Much as I love Aliens, I didn’t even like that Cameron turned them into animals. To me, the alien is much more intelligent and impossible to understand than just being a Xenomorph beast or someone’s genetic experiment. It exists in the primordial cracks of the universe, and we can’t even really comprehend what it is.

    But as a sci-fi thriller, I thought it was pretty solid.

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    I’m watching it now. Not as bad as I expected, but also it brings nothing new to the table so far

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Buckle up

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    It’s not nearly as bad as I was expecting so far

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    Sad. I love his scores. Fist heard one of his albums ms years ago, before he got composing big movies.

  • The ultimate hit.

  • ResonanceCascade

    I didn’t really think it was Nietzschean thing, more of a Frankenstein (or more appropriately, Promethean) “the created destroys the creator” kind of thing. Definitely not groundbreaking, but much more interesting than the weirdly anti-science vibe that Prometheus had.

  • Godspeed.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Never stop believing

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It felt like cynical parody.

  • William Dhalgren

    Stop believing?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    No cause of death yet

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Don’t

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    My wife isn’t home, so I’m watching Cloverfield Paradox.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Someone from house of cards!
    Reg. E. Cathy
    At least Google his name ya ass!

  • Oh okay. Yeah I wasn’t sure if you agreed with them or not. You should tell the author to watch the movie Kids.

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    What?!?!

  • Someone from House of Cards and I’ll be doing a RIP for the other guy in a bit.

  • William Dhalgren

    Yeah, I didn’t feel that strongly about it. I saw it alone on a Sunday morning, and that was kind of a weird time to see it maybe. But I thought it was a letdown for sure. I guess I was hoping Scott was ready to go in a different direction with these set of films. Questions surrounding creation and the engineers were interesting and worth exploring. I really wasn’t interested in seeing a bunch of photo-Aliens butcher humans for four or five movies. I can watch the original series for that shit.

  • Those twizzlers were garbage Poppy! Worst Halloween candy!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Who are the other two?

  • That’s 3 deaths within 24 hours

  • I should have explained. My university has a lot of terrible op-eds. Like the Big Mouth one. I can’t an article seriously when they spell the show they’re bashing wrong. Big Mouth not Bigmouth

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I have no idea
    Edited
    He created a rejected score for it

  • William Dhalgren

    Was he originally going to score BR2049?

  • Definitely not the worst in the series, and it’s gorgeous (like all of Scott’s films), but there were too many cooks in the kitchen. I stand by my thinking that Ridley should’ve made a new franchise to explore A.I., God, etc.

    Hollywood needs to stop explaining cool, mysterious things. The Xenomorph isn’t even an alien anymore!

  • William Dhalgren

    Nietzche pronounced God dead in the 19th century. Over a 100 years ago. It’s old hat at this point, man. It’s not provocative or particulalry interesting to me and it’s ground that has been covered again and again in sci-fi. I say this as someone who is not religious.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Johann Johannson has died

  • William Dhalgren

    Not the worst. I think the problem I had with the movie is that the beginning held such promise. The whole first third is filled with some of the best of what sci-fi can be (hopeful, for one thing). I know it’s an Alien movie, so I knew what I was getting into and hope wasn’t one of them, but to go from those visuals and that subtle, slow build up to another hackneyed gore fest was a huge letdown. Throw in Bruce Lee Monk Philosopher David and yet another expedition of dumb people and the whole thing just didn’t work for me. It felt like two different movies pulling in different directions and tearing its central premise apart in the meantime.

    I need to watch it again. Together with Prometheus, there’s a REALLY interesting and gorgeously-imagined science fiction film in there trying to get out, but as two independent films they both leave a lot to be desired. For me, anyway.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I disliked it immensely but i believe deadfellow loves it

  • … I don’t think it is.

  • ResonanceCascade

    There are definitely moments of stupidity that were frustrating (quarantine, you idiots!). But I felt like the stupidity in Prometheus was a lot less forgivable. These people are just colonists, those people were trained scientists.

    I also had serious thematic issues with Prometheus that Covenant didn’t share. The whole “overturning Darwin” and “faith trumps science” stuff felt wildly out of place in a futuristic sci-fi movie. I wouldn’t say Covenant dismisses those ideas so much as it destroys them. Prometheus created gods, Covenant obliterated them.

    The shower scene was unnecessary, for sure. I just thought the good outweighed the bad overall.

    And speaking of alternate universes, I do not accept either of these movies as prequels to Alien. I’m willing to enjoy them for what they are, but when I watch Alien, that Spacey Jockey is not a giant Greek god looking dude in a suit, and David did *not* make the unholy monster that killed the crew of the Nostromo.

    I was disappointed. It wasn’t as bad as all the sequels after Aliens, but it was worse than Prometheus imho. As always, Scott delivered a film that looked good. Wonderfully shot. Good design. Good locations. From the set design to the cinematography, it was top notch. The performances were generally good. But the story. Not only the story but the way it’s told. The way it dismisses the questions raised in Prometheus. I accept that these characters are dumb now. I realize that Scott’s Alien franchise takes place in a parallel universe where those with the jobs requiring the most intelligence are most likely to be idiots. So that didn’t even play into it this time. The cliche shower scene. The “twin assuming the other twin’s identity” cliche. It was just bad.

    Again, just my opinion.

  • Tanis11

    Gotta go with the Redvines! Or any off brand licorice. Not a huge fan of Twizzlers unless I am in a pinch.

  • I know @blackbirdblues:disqus has had a half finished review on the film in private for the site. Otherwise idk what we think

  • ResonanceCascade

    What’s the consensus on Alien Covenant around here? Maybe (definitely) it’s because I went in with low expectations, but I liked it way more than Prometheus. Like a solid 7-7.5 outta 10. I’m really surprised that so many people I’ve talked to think it’s the worst one of the whole series. Worse than the theatrical cut of 3? Worse than Resurrection? Worse than Requiem!? Utter madness.

    That lander getaway was a my second favorite action sequence of the year (after the apartment in Atomic Blonde).

  • William Dhalgren

    The results are similarly anyway.

  • William Dhalgren

    I had to google Kendrick Lamar.

  • William Dhalgren

    To all you Exile Readers: I highly recommend 334 by Thomas Disch. It’s less a novel than it is a series of interconnected short stories, but it’s very good. It’s a dystopia set in NYC in 2025, but the society it portrays hasn’t advanced far beyond where it was when the book was written in the 70s. It’s darkly satirical, at times horrifying, but very compelling. Maybe moreso in light of where we are compared with the time period it was written in.

    The first cover is probably the most apt, but I love the second. The last is the least apt, but I love how bizarrely off the mark it is.

  • Indianamcclain

    I thought Kendrick Lamar was doing a song for Black Panther. Didn’t realize it was an entire album. It’s just like what Prince did for the Batman Soundtrack.

  • DryButSoupy

    I looked at that gif for like, 20 seconds before I realized that was a gun and not a little bong.

  • You guys are crazy. Young Guns is great. So is 2.

  • I don’t know, it’s silly.

  • Yes.

  • DryButSoupy

    Does it count as “reading” if it’s an audio book?

  • My university had an op-ed on why the show was sexualizing child sexuality.

  • New Duke had a date!

  • Thanks : )

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Someday I’ll see that film

  • Sailor Monsoon

    DRACULA CLUB ASSEMBLE!!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I might take you up on that

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Go to bed

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Oscar curse

  • They eat it everyday. I’m sick of the smell.

  • Speak for yourself. I’m just going to bed now.

  • Yea it’s strange. No relation whatsoever.

  • Josh invited you!

  • No way am I paying $40 for it if I can bet it off to Sailor!

  • Poppity 🎀

    LOL So it seems!
    Duke was commenting over at The Neutral Zone and Sailor happened to pop-in as well. Duke made the offer and Sailor sealed the deal. I give credit where credit is due.

  • Poppity 🎀

    I was thinking the exact same thing!

  • Poppity 🎀

    Sour deal, man. Duke chickened out on Nashville. If you need help with the musicals list, I’d be more than happy to help.

  • Poppity 🎀

    I thought that you had already locked-in Nashville for the AFI review. Naughty Duke!

  • So Josh just got us trolls and anime fanatics?

  • Poppity 🎀

    Not true. It was you and Sailor.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Were you banned for speaking your mind or something?

  • Poppity 🎀

    I can’t imagine you being banned from anything. What is their problem, anyways?

  • Poppity 🎀

    HAHAHAHA That’s one of the best ones I’ve seen!!

  • Poppity 🎀

    I bought the entire Brady Bunch collection and it’s one of the best purchases I’ve made. The lessons are still valid in today’s world. Love it!
    I have 3 seasons of In Living Color but I don’t watch it much anymore.

  • Poppity 🎀

    That used to be the tagline for NBC’s primetime line-up, I believe. Odd that they would use it for other shows but perhaps they are all NBC shows as well. I’m too lazy to Google it.

  • Forrest was discovering himself. Felt more like a Jen-nay.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Peter fucking Gallagher!

  • Poppity 🎀

    I think it’s a prequel of Forrest Gump.

  • Poppity 🎀

    It means an automatic camel toe. :-/

  • Poppity 🎀

    I say it should be for his use of the word “Feckers”.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Since it was approximately 2am for me, I was snug in my bed and fast asleep like you are now. Zzzzzz.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Did you sent him a vile of your blood? LOL

  • Poppity 🎀

    I saw it on cable and I was really disappointed. Why Bridges chose to do this after Crazy Heart is beyond me. The acting was just bad and the story was just poorly played out. Awful.

  • Poppity 🎀

    I could also see Eric Stoltz, independent of the BTTF connection.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Ginger Rogers (without the dancing)

  • Poppity 🎀

    I can definitely see that! 🙂

  • Poppity 🎀

    I was really disappointed with Young Guns. So much so that we threw away the DVD after one viewing. The only worthy Carlos-Emilio duet is Men at Work.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Ooh, please, do tell.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Never underestimate the power of a refrigerated toupée. 😉

  • Poppity 🎀

    I thought he had been sporting this look for a number of years. Perhaps the comb-over has dwindled and it just making the shiny scalp that more apparent.

  • Poppity 🎀

    The only time I liked something in Twizzler-format was when they marketed these Starburst vines that looked exactly like licorice but in bright colours. They were quite waxy and had the exact consistency of a Twizzler but were slightly fruity. Not surprisingly, they didn’t last too long.

    That’s a really good tactic in not getting people to steal your stash. 😛

  • Jooshua

    Do you ever feel like there are just too many movies and shows to watch? Like can they just chill for a year while I catch up? I feel like I have hundreds of movies I need to watch. It’s got to a point with TV shows where I don’t even want to watch a pilot because it might be good and then I got to add it to my ever growing weekly list.

  • Jooshua

    Adam Brody

  • Another excellent thing to do!

  • Tanis11

    Dammit Duke. ANOTHER thing to do this weekend. 🙂

  • Tanis11

    Speaking of J-Mart, where has he been. I feel like I haven’t seen him in awhile.

  • Tanis11

    I remember Lovejoy, Sean Luke, and Sans_Fi used to be pretty active. Those ones pop out at least.

  • Big Mouth is funny and innovative. I hope pre-teens are watching it, even if it’s not “suitable” for them. It’s like if health class was entertaining.

  • This worked. Thank you.
    Also I had to log back into Twitter/Disqus to leave this comment, because I forgot what clearing the cache does.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Psst
    I actually don’t hate it.

  • Tanis11

    I am partial to science fiction so I liked it. That said….it is full of a ton of cliches, extremely predictable, and not very memorable. It does nothing to separate itself from other films and for every question that is answered, 2 more arise. Could be interesting if they expanded after this one but who knows.

  • Tanis11

    “I’ll eat an entire bag of black licorice.”

    I am one of the few that keeps Black Licorice in business. I fucking love it. And whenever I am with a group a people I intentionally purchase this candy just so no one asks for tastes lmao.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Because it’s accurate.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    But it’s accurate

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    That caption hurts my heart.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    M’lady says i look like the main character of Vikings but i don’t know who that is.
    So i was going with personality.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    What did you think?

  • Indianamcclain

    I didn’t hate it, but the film hasn’t stuck with me. Not that interested in revisiting it anytime soon.

  • Indianamcclain

    Agreed

  • Indianamcclain

    I do think there’s something to be said for letting a film speak for a filmmaker rather than the other way around.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Because it’s a topic he’s had to answer for almost 30 fucking years.
    I’m not saying he’s not an asshole but he’s answered that question a million times and i know I’d get fucking tired of answering it if i was him

  • I would have never guessed you’d look like a cross between Chris Pratt and Seth Rogen

  • Indianamcclain

    It’s pretty bad. I rented it and had to force myself to finish it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You look nothing like him

  • Indianamcclain

    I liked the first film. It seems like its sequel is more popular.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    A couple of years ago, it would’ve been Chris Pratt but now he’s superhero hot.
    So i guess I’ll begrudgingly go with Seth Rogen

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Valentine’s day weekend
    Black people want a superhero

    In that case, Ryan Gosling.

    I gave the new Cloverfield Paradox flick a shot the other night. Fell asleep about halfway through. Gonna attempt to finish it tonight. So far I don’t find it to be particularly bad. It’s just not very engaging.

  • Ooo true but I’m a bit younger than he is.

  • William Dhalgren

    Oh, were we being serious? Like, who looks like us?

  • William Dhalgren

    I wonder if Doc Brown still has that time machine…

  • William Dhalgren

    Wesley Snipes.

  • William Dhalgren

    Yes, sir.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Go for the high-quality Rupert Grint and take Domhall Gleason.

  • William Dhalgren

    Yyyyyyyeeeeeees?

  • 80s Michael J Fox if any time period is allowed.

    More realistically: Rupert Grint. I can’t think of any other ginger actor.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Game Ok, FilmExodus. It turns out they are making a movie about your life. I want an actor to play you.

    My pick:
    Dan Byrd

  • Pretty sure I know who the ripper is

  • So @childofbellona:disqus and I were talking about the Exiles we lost to BMD and other places earlier so I went back to the very first slashfilm in exodus thread to see who all commented there that have since departed.

    I also found this about whether we should invite the J-Mart back then:
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a165df1cdcf60ba53223926c82e309db051350d52741fc172d29671e7d17c072.jpg

  • Kidding. I’m told I resemble him.
    Why do you hate him?

  • Why?

  • I take this personally.

  • Locked in a basement, according to DBMI.

  • I assume you’ve seen all of these? Equilibrium and Reign were some of my top “underrated” recommendations.

  • William Dhalgren

    That’s exactly what John Titor would say.

  • William Dhalgren

    Young Guns isn’t as good as I remember it.

  • Apparently he’s quite the player.
    Also a pathological liar, but that’s neither here nor there.

  • Exactly. I hope this cools off before people witch hunt his career.

  • Oh yea he’s great in the role. I still want him to be a regular on a sitcom again.

  • Do it!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    The response.

  • So far so good.

  • Is that the review, or the response to being asked to write one?

  • It’s a dogshit MIB wannabe.

    So basically MIB2.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Yaaaa boiiii

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I was so-so on it but I came around by the end. It’s a show that has my interest for season 2. The world they set up allows them to explore some cool ideas and I’m down for more.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Shit.

  • I fixed it.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    True. He basically played a lawyer who used his disability to garner sympathy and manipulate the court. He came across as charming and despicable at the same time. It was all pretty humorous.

    And?

    The ayes have it.

    No such person was a registered Exile.

  • And Gary David Goldberg created Family Ties and co created Spin City.

  • William Dhalgren

    You’re John Titor, aren’t you?

  • I’ve watched a couple episodes. The only problem with that is to fully understand id need to watch the whole series and that’s going to be a no from me. But I can’t wait to watch him on Designated Survivor.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Well, just hanging around the general plaza. There’s a Best Buy and a B&N not far from it, among other things.

  • William Dhalgren

    I’d like to see him in a top hate, spats, and a cane.

  • I’m sure I can convince my friend to watch it when I visit lol

  • William Dhalgren

    I think Malice’s body might have been snatched. I haven’t heard him utter “the words” in a loooooong time.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    And Spin City has the same creator as Scrubs.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I just finished yesterday.

  • Ahh. He’s also great in Spin City and the MJF Show.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Have you seen him in The Good Wife? He was so good.

  • King Alvarez’s Evil Twin

    Into my second episode of Altered Carbon. Interesting enough so far.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I’ve seen it and it changed me. The nudity was tasteful.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I meant Family Ties.

  • TheGreenMalice’s ballet show is a must see!

  • He’s not in Home Improvement…

    Also he holds up bad films. Half of his films would be garbage if MJF’s natural awesomeness didn’t pull them out.

  • TheGreenMalice

    No spaces.

  • GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT lets go!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Not arguing, I have no strong feelings, I was honestly curious. I’ve not seen him in much outside of BTTF, Teen Wolf, and some Home Improvement. He’s also one of my favorite guest stars ever in two episodes of Scrubs where he’s heartbreakingly wonderful.

  • The Green Malice ballet show is a must see

  • Charismatic, charming, funny, plus he’s got perfect comedic timing. To deny him as one of the best comedic actors that aren’t comedians is a sin.

    Plus he’s able to blend pretty well into more dramatic fare like The American President with a natural ease

  • You’re right. He’s the greatest in everything.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Leave off “actor.”

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Honest question: why do you think he’s that great? I’d love to hear your case for him. To me, I find him charistmatic, charming, and funny, but I’ve never thought of him as one of the greats.

  • Also, y’all don’t forget to send me your PIXAR rankings!!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    If those things existed, I would protest them and hold book burning events.

  • Michael J. Fox is the greatest actor.

  • Well then… no comment.

  • I’m watching The American President than Batman: Gotham by gaslight

    Edit: TAP sure ends suddenly.

  • Jezebel has a real fucking hard on for him. I feel like their game is to keep dredging up whatever they can stretch into an unflattering and creepy story in the hopes someone will come forward with an actual #metoo story about him. It’s pretty fucking pathetic. Tarantino has been handling it all like a class act though.

  • Cap_N_Jack
  • Why are you are an artist? You’ve got the heart of a true poet!

    I raise my glass to you too sir.

    No Duke the movie.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I vaguely remember Coheed & Cambria.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Come on Kemosabe, TheGreenMalice is more than his catchphrase and shouldn’t always be reference in tandem with it. Have you caught his off-broadway one-man show? Or tracked down his book of free verse poems?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    It’s not a Batman movie so the jury’s out.

  • William Dhalgren
  • Also, ask if you can kiss them. If they say no you say thanks for your time and move on.

    I loved the trailer for that film. All else is lost in time, like tears in the rain.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Pantsuits? I mean, yes…

  • Tarantino is an ass. With a weird voice.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I saw the movie 9 appear on my Netflix. I’ve seen that movie—I think it was good actually—but I remember next to nothing. As if my mind was wiped Men In Black style.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I love and value you New Duke much as I love and valued old Duke. While our community was not without leadership prior to your renaissance, we lacked a driving force and passionate voice. You, through the sheer dedication to your craft and love of film transformed us from an oasis in the desert to a thriving metropolis. I raise my glass to you.

  • William Dhalgren

    vaisitrani defected, too. (Not sure if I spelled that right.)

  • Cap_N_Jack

    To this day I only remember The Last Airbender because I was excited before I walked in. I have almost no memory of what actually occurred on screen.

  • William Dhalgren

    Come back, Kyle! We’re your old buds!

  • William Dhalgren

    Exactly.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    …me away. So I watch it every night.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    It’s one of those movies you see and forget.

  • It blew

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Plus, and I may prove myself ignorant for pointing this out, I don’t think it’s fair to equate all forms of tense working relationships with abuse (much less sexual abuse).

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I don’t remember hating it but it made almost no impression on me.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Has anyone seen R.I.P.D.? I remembered that movie existed and I’ve never seen it.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    That’s alright, I have been banned from the AVocado part of the AVClub for a while now.

  • Indianamcclain

    I actually feel kinda bad for Tarantino. I didn’t realize that he actually helped Uma Thurman with not only with her statement, but getting the footage of the crash as well. Also, Thurman said that she’s already forgiven him for the choking scene, and she didn’t have a problem with the spitting scene.

    Now the resurfaced Stern interview is admittedly bad, but it just sounds to me like he was just misinformed. You can clearly see that this recent movement has set its sights on Tarantino, but I don’t think he’s done anything that calls for his career to be destroyed.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Surrogates is a movie I haven’t thought about in years.

  • No doy.

    If I wanted fucking puns, I would have said “shoot me a J Mart pun, fuckface”

    M’kay New Duke?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    If J-Mart has a love life and I still don’t, I stand the risk of getting very depressed.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    For some reason I thought Replacement was the movie Surrogates for a second. It was an odd second.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    The Replacements is a masterpiece.

  • BOOO

    Probably laying down the law on some honeys.

  • William Dhalgren

    Touché.

    Peter fucking Falk

  • Where the fuck is J Mart?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    V for vendetta
    Reign of fire
    Equilibrium

  • Which ones are those?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Damn right

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Peter fucking Dinklage

  • William Dhalgren

    Peter fucking Scalari is pretty rad, tho.

  • William Dhalgren

    Peter fucking Sellers!

  • William Dhalgren

    I managed to snag 3 dystopias in one afternoon.

  • William Dhalgren

    Oh, right, I forgot.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Peter fucking Frampton!

  • We’re not shitlets we’re feckers

  • Very nice.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Ditch it

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s garbage without him.
    I could only tolerate the Edgar Wright episode because Edgar Wright

  • HOW DARE THEY!

  • Never trash. Haven’t sold either. I mostly give old DVDs to my cousins or friends. Otherwise i keep em all.

  • That’s a diqus issue that happens to me sometimes.

  • William Dhalgren
  • Just about home. Was a nice winter hike.

  • William Dhalgren

    Peter fucking Citera!

    Wait, is this a game where we shout out random Peters?

  • Work.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I feel ya but it’s just so good

  • William Dhalgren
  • Indianamcclain

    It’s not a rumor. Pryor’s wife confirmed it.

  • William Dhalgren

    Say it anyway!

  • William Dhalgren

    I’m here, therefore I am.

  • Indianamcclain

    Neither have I

  • William Dhalgren

    Yeah, they’re called teenagers.

  • William Dhalgren

    What up, shitlets?

  • TheGreenMalice

    I don’t have anything nice to say…

  • TheGreenMalice

    It’s basically a flail for your feet…

  • “What Netflix disc did you get?”
    Me: “The Maze Runner”
    “Ew, why?”
    “I heard it has monsters in it…”

  • Do you ever sell/trash discs?

  • Avoiding us?

  • The Three Disqusteers: Ben, Sailor, and Duke!

    Where everyone else at?

  • (head explodes)

  • Is it even a blind buy anymore if you blind buy everything? 🤔

  • I’ve been meaning to watch it again for a year. But there’s too much other stuff that I haven’t seen yet!

  • I’m still trying to get used to the new Movie Fights.

  • God help you if you wandered into its path.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I agree to your terms

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Deal

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It still didn’t work

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I rewatch breaking bad every year

  • I probably will. Did you see my bet wager comment?

  • TheGreenMalice

    Fucking exercise disguised as a toy. That’s some fascist bullshit my parents bought us kids back in the day.

  • Ill rewatch some stuff every 3-4 years. Family Ties and Breaking Bad are in dire need of a rewatch.

  • I’ll actually probably regret my decision soon (they’re dropping other network shows left and right). But I still don’t rewatch TV enough to justify owning seasons.

    … except my classic cartoons.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Oh yeah

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You’ll probably like it

  • 80s + 80s Tom Hanks = Instant Buy

  • I buy it to watch it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Peter fucking scalari!

  • I bet its a blind buy.

  • (Googles Bosom Buddies)
    That just raises further questions.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You liked Gotham by Gaslight enough to buy it?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    What’s skip it?

  • Josh got us Poppy!

  • Netflix don’t got them classic 80s gems tho Ben

  • Not really.

  • Is that like Bop-It?

  • My walmart haul:
    – Batman: Gotham by Gaslight
    – Once Upon a Time in Venice
    – Going in Style
    – Bosom Buddies complete series
    – Remington Steele s1
    – Remington Steele s2

  • I keep reading this as Skip-It, and getting the damn jingle stuck in my head.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s really fun

  • When Netflix streaming really hit its stride, I traded in like 20 seasons.

  • Skip-Bo is amazing!

  • I don’t need you to do 6 AFI films.

    Here’s what I’m thinking. If BP is the #1 worldwide MCU BO champ I’ll review Nashville in addition to Oklahoma! That’s two 2hr+ musicals.

    If it doesn’t become #1, you review Nashville for AFI 100 and have to do at least a Top 10 list for all time greatest musicals.

  • Pffft speak for yourself.

  • TheGreenMalice

    I couldn’t listen to the new episodes… say what you will about him, but he brought something to the table.

  • Send out the bloodhound (Josh).

  • You’re a double-exile.

  • TheGreenMalice

    I mean, their site name is pretty over dramatic…

  • Sailor Monsoon

    15 cards.
    I had a goddamn 15 card advantage.
    I had one card and m’lady had 15.
    And she still fucking won.
    She is a fucking skipbo beast

  • ResonanceCascade

    I watched every Sellers Pink Panther movie one week when I was home with strep throat. It was awesome.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Absolutely.
    I’ll review 6 afi films
    And you have to review Nashville
    Edited
    Plus the other one you owe me

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Nobody buys tv shows

  • Do you want to make this interesting?

  • Does anyone else hate the “MUST SEE TV” box set packaging. Absolutely the god damn worst. I got Quantum Leap and its flimsy outside and it’s got a loose sliding design. Would pick up Knight Rider and Miami Vice but they’re in the same packaging. It sucks. Thinking of sending mill creek entertainment an angry rant

  • Local Walmart has so many 80s films. Too bad most are on DVD but there some great 80s shows I’m toying with getting

  • We need to track down other banned BMDers and bring em here!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I mostly miss the canon

  • It’s true. Damn true

  • TheDeadFellow

    He actually has a Letterboxd account he updates and was just on a PBS doc about the MeToo movement, if you’re curious.

    Still an asshole tho.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He’s a piece of shit but i miss him

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s ma boy

  • It was 1970s baby
    Everything happened

  • Its fun.
    I enjoyed it.

  • I just finally Googled the fucking shit and the nginx site recommended clear cache.

  • Black Panther is going to blow everything else away in the MCU….its going to top Civil War

  • TheDeadFellow

    I actually think the site is nice to be on now, considering that Devin Faraci’s stink isn’t on there anymore.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    You’re missing nothing

  • Sailor Monsoon

    No caveats.
    I think it’ll beat every mcu film

  • Got banned from Birth.Movies.Death. They can be pretty thin-skinned.

  • TheDeadFellow

    So many actors/directors/producers/etc. have shit against them that quite frankly, it almost can be baffling to keep track of. It’s almost becoming a game of playing darts of who to tackle en masse next.

  • Poppity 🎀

    I am having an issue that just appeared tonight. Whenever I click on a new article, I have to log back on to Disqus because my information has been erased. I never had this happen before. Sorry to add to your headaches.

  • ResonanceCascade

    It’s so weird that Singer has been like Teflon in all of this upheaval, when the allegations against him might be the most numerous of all. Him and Spacey were two peas in a pod.

  • Yeah they kept saying SSL issue… Which is weird. Since we never oredered and SSL

  • TheDeadFellow

    That sounds like a decent bet. Probably something around 700 to 800 domestically to boot.

  • TheDeadFellow

    As does Bryan Singer.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s a crazy crazy world

  • Infinity War should make $2B. Especially since I think there will be some surprise cameos.

  • They’re not too bad!

  • Poppity 🎀

    Spacey apparently fondled Richard Dreyfus’s 17-year-old son and just this week, a questionable picture of Dreyfus himself surfaced of him groping a fan. Nuts.

  • Poppity 🎀

    I hadn’t heard that but it sounds on par with Spacey’s timeline and with his personal tastes. He spent many years in seeming exile in the U.K. and granted he did re-establish the Old Vic in many ways, I think he had to bail from the U.S. for different reasons.
    I’m surprised this guy didn’t sell his story to the tabloïds because tongues were wagging about Spacey’s sexuality for years.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s unfortunate that every stage actor in the business has a spacey story

  • Poppity 🎀

    I have had mixed feelings about Brando ever since I saw him with a stick of butter.

  • ResonanceCascade

    Did I ever tell the story here about the time I was at a weekend-long party and met a young gay actor who was bragging about sleeping with Spacey? Because that happened (circa 2009). I mean, dude was of age, but baaarely.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Gross.

  • Poppity 🎀

    LMAO And just like that I’m on top of my game!

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’m just throwing my hands up. Sure why not. This world is crazy.

  • Poppity 🎀

    Burgess Meredith would not approve.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’ll take that bet.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He had a look about him

  • Poppity 🎀

    It looks to be but in true style, it’s now being denied by Pryor’s daughter. I would tend to think this is true and that the daughter is trying to preserve his memory. Enjoy Brewster’s Millions!

  • I think it’s a spinoff of Forrest Gump.

  • Poppity 🎀

    He actually looked quite good when he was younger. Indeed, Spacey likes them young. :-/

  • Do I have to delete my filthy bookmarks?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Ah.
    I completely forgot that was a film

  • TheDeadFellow

    It’s going to make money, as all Marvel films do, but nothing will beat what Avengers did in this franchise (except for maybe Infinity War).

  • You should clarify solo film @sailormonsoon:disqus. No way BP beats first Avengers.

  • I’ve seen the Steve Martin ones.

  • Is that actually true?

  • I’ve heard estimates close to $200M for opening weekend

  • TheDeadFellow

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

    I’m going to assume this will happen between some of our users one day. Don’t know who the fight will be between tho.

    Anyway, I’m hanging out with a friend at the mall tomorrow. We considered seeing The 15:17 To Paris but the bad reviews kind of soured us on that, so it’s just going to be a day of hanging out. Not bad, if you ask me.

  • TheGreenMalice
  • Sailor Monsoon

    Loggia is probably 80 in that pic
    Which is 65 years too old for spacey

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m trying to use my powers of deduction to solve this riddle and I’m coming up milhouse

  • TheGreenMalice

    I know, I haven’t been to the theater since that one laser pointer in space documentary…

  • Poppity 🎀
  • Sailor Monsoon

    Because there’s literally nothing else playing.
    It’s made a billion dollars by process of elimination

  • Poppity 🎀

    No, Brando was dynamite as confirmed by many, many sources.

  • TheGreenMalice

    I may go see Jumanji this weekend… How the fuck is that thing still in the theater.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    “I’ve had better”
    “Now that Robert Loggia?”
    “Dynamo”

  • TheGreenMalice

    That’s the first thing I thought!…

  • ResonanceCascade

    Boy, that’d be even better. “Yeah, I slept with Brando. Meh.”

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Every single day of my life
    Unless he was shit in the sack

  • ResonanceCascade

    I mean, wouldn’t you?

  • ResonanceCascade

    I can see it happening for sure. If it were coming out in the summer, probably not, but it has pretty much a month to itself. It should do crazy money.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Very true

  • ResonanceCascade

    The weird thing to me isn’t that they had sex, but that Pryor didn’t brag about it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I think black panther will make more than deadpool 2.
    Which will make all the money

  • Yep, it’s just a tad more than Deadpool, which was R-rated and is currently the biggest opener in February.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s extremely conservative.

  • Yep. BO predictions are around $150 million opening weekend, Iron Man Three made $174,144,585. I’m going to go ahead and assume estimates are conservative, because why wouldn’t they be?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Which is now what I’m going to assume was brando’s pet name for pryor

  • Sailor Monsoon

    People want that Black Panther

  • I’m betting Black Panther will make a billion worldwide. Iron Man Three and Captain America: Civil War are the only solo MCU films to have done this, and ymmv with how solo Civil War is…

    Wonder Woman’s cultural cache, good word of mouth, and well-received prior appearance carried that film to $821,847,012 worldwide and that’s DCEU, which as everyone knows, sucks balls. Black Panther has cultural cache, good word of mouth, and a well-received prior appearance. He also has the MCU, a Kendrick Lamar album, and no competition in theatres.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That’s really interesting.
    Good for you Brando

  • Poppity 🎀

    Quincy Jones revealed it this week and Pryor’s widow confirmed their liaison. Apparently Brando also had an affair with Marvin Gaye.

    https://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/entertainment/celebrity/richard-pryors-widow-confirms-comedian-11995304

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’ve never heard this rumor before

  • Poppity 🎀

    Taking a look at the News of the Weird, does anyone have any thoughts on the supposed sexual relationship between Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor? (It is awkward just putting those two names together.)

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/da50576d2c94f8748f0710adb17af7379cf3797e1868245153dda39d11da128a.jpg

  • Cleared my cache, history etc., and the home page is working again.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Its just another superhero film.

  • Poppity 🎀

    I like the sticks, it beats urban life anyday. Even if I had the choice, I likely wouldn’t go to see it. Nothing modern much interests me. :-/

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I think Sellers is to comedy, what Olivier was to Shakespeare.
    That man had a gift for improv that is second to none

  • Poppity 🎀

    Robert Loggia saved what he could from that movie. 😉
    My kids love all the PP films but they got slightly less funny each time. Plus, living in France, I can only find his unbearably exaggerated accent humorous to a certain point.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Get outta here, you hellspawn

  • Sailor Monsoon

    “I have no idea what this Black Panther thing is about..”
    Move out the sticks pops!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Trail of the pink panther soured the entire series for me

  • Poppity 🎀

    Ewwww. I know a guy that likes to eat his super stale.

  • Poppity 🎀

    This won’t surprise you but I have no idea what this Black Panther thing is about.
    I myself hate any type of licorice and anise flavouring. Bleurk!
    I’m not a betting lady. 😉

  • I’ve sealed my fate.

  • Poppity 🎀

    hahahaha Or Jean Reno! I have not seen the remakes. As much as I like Martin, I just can’t see anyone doing this but ol’ Pete.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    What’s your stance on circus peanuts?

  • That’s not Steve Martin… /s

  • Poppity 🎀

    The insanity!!!

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c536c76453b384c4ceed541be2c8806d314fed15639e4a1b3af12e686a9cbfbe.jpg

    I own most of the films aside from the ones without Sellers. Nothing beats the original, honestly.

  • – I also think Black Panther will be the most successful MCU movie
    – I like black licorice
    – I don’t know where this leaves me in the bet

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Here’s an insane confession
    I’ve never seen a single pink panther film

  • Poppity 🎀
