Everything & Nothing: Where’s Your Elf on the Shelf This Weekend?

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.

TEN DAYS AWAY! WOO! Alright Exiles, how’s your Christmas buildup going? Have you built a snowman yet? Kiss anyone special under the mistletoe? What about stop a terrorist group at your wife’s Christmas party?

-Duke

Don’t forget to post your thoughts on The Last Jedi in our Let’s Talk About thread this weekend. And try not to discuss the film in here! Some are trying to go in blind, no matter how small the comment is, it can still be an Inception. Have a great weekend and enjoy the snow if you have it. (Can’t believed it snowed in Texas).

-DBMI

  • Oh no my theory is a good half the film takes place in an alternate reality. We’ve seen set photos trading Stark back with a reactor and in a SHIELD uniform. I want to think that maybe Tony or someone gets a hold of the time and reality gen and accidentally crafts a new timeline in an attempt to fix the manslaughter INFINITY WAR ends on.

    I can see them teasing F4. A lot of people think Reed Richards bought Avengers Tower from Tony and will turn it into the Baxter Building.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I predict they tease one of their newly reacquired characters in a post-credit scene.

  • I think 2 weeks is plenty of time. If you’re really worried, just add (((SPOILERS))) in front of your comments.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I could try and figure that out but I only use it for the watchlist
    I don’t review anything

  • I have a theory about Avengers 4 but I ain’t saying it if this thread is dead

  • TheGreenMalice

    Mortal Engines trailer… Crazy

  • Yea but then the recent comments will be back.

  • King Alvarez
  • do you have the link to your letterbox?

  • Aren’t spoilers allowed in that thread?

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Spoil away, pal! I think all the big nerds would have definitely seen it by then. 🙂

  • Indianamcclain

    The Best Buy steelbook is even better.

  • William Dhalgren

    I see what you did there.

  • TheGreenMalice

    I am apathetic about it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Shitstorm

  • So if I see The Last Jedi in two weeks and go to the Let’s Talk about page and comment is there gonna be a shit storm that my comments could contain spoilers or will everyone have seen it here by now?

  • But that hand drawn cover is something else.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s already been done

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I’m thinking about forming a band called The Lone Rangers. What do you guys think?

  • William Dhalgren

    As long as it’s not shaped like a fucking Death Star or something.

  • William Dhalgren

    I guess I misunderstood the argument. I assumed we were talking about the “big budget summer blockbuster”.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Roast time
    Hop on other there for all your roasting needs

  • Indianamcclain

    They look like something out of a PS1 game.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    New roast is in 2 and a half hours
    7:30
    Don’t be late
    I’m not tagging

  • Sailor Monsoon

    7:30 it is

  • That works!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s 5:02 my time
    So 2 and a half hours?

  • Oh right, global time… Er… a half-hour from now?

  • 7:30?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    DBMI said he might and grim reaper wanted to but they didn’t know what time it was
    Because i didn’t pick a time

  • I’m ready whenever. Are more people joining?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Oh and when did you want that roast?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Jerry is the best

  • I also hope I’m supposed to feel bad for Jerry, because I feel bad for Jerry.

  • Finally catching up on Rick and Morty. I hope the toxic fandom hasn’t ruined this for me.

  • I remember that CG looking pretty rough about a decade ago. Probably looks 64-bit at this point.

  • Indianamcclain

    The monkeys in Jumanji look atrocious in 4K.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    An hour!

  • Half hour episodes, or 45 minutes?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Black Christmas
    Watch it

  • I’ve been making a large dent in movie watching this weekend.

    Whoever talked about Better Watch Out here, that movie was good.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I want 10 episodes and 5 seasons.
    50 episodes.
    In and out and done.
    No drama should be longer than that

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It’s like letterboxd but for everything

  • King Alvarez

    I don’t understand Pintrest.

  • Aw, I loved it. Just finished the series last night.

    2 seasons of half-hour episodes? I wish more TV would take note.

  • YALL GET OVER TO DAT ROAST OF BLACK CHRISTMAS. LAST ROAST OF 2017

  • PS I’m heading home to Pottsville PA on Friday Dec 22.
    I’m going to try and get content loaded for the week I’m off work.

  • Church this morning
    Coffee and Comics
    Last Jedi
    Steelers vs Patriots

  • DryButSoupy

    I knew that bastard had to still be alive.

  • King Alvarez

    You love it

  • King Alvarez

    Whoops!

  • King Alvarez

    I know, right?!?

  • King Alvarez

    Nope.

  • TheDeadFellow
  • TheDeadFellow

    Oops. Sorry. My enthusiasm for the film is really quite high, unfortunately.

  • No talk about TLJ! Do you not read what is written in the weekend post above? I’m gonna have to get Sailor to stab you.

  • Hey hey what does it say on top of this article? Dont post about TLJ in thia thread! Gonna have to start calling you Josh Lol

  • Lol

  • It is and I am happy. I was a bit concerned when I saw the trailer initially.

  • Lol. Did I write an article last night?

    “That’s my secret, I’m always drunk”

    Nah, seriously. My friend and old roommate came over last night and we just listened to music, had a few beers and talked. Haven’t done that in awhile, it was refreshing.

  • Yeah some bad shit behind the scenes.

  • Mines Port Rockwell.

  • Lol ypu just explained this site to me on the phone the other day.

  • TheDeadFellow

    My only complaint was that it was on the long side. It’s two and a half hours and it feels like it, especially towards the end. But frankly, a movie utterly packed with so much STUFF and such high ambition like this is nothing short of incredible. I can see why Rian Johnson is gonna be the dude to spearhead a new saga.

    Oh God you watched that? Shit. I was really looking forward to that film but then reviews dropped and my heart sank like the Titanic.

  • Indianamcclain

    So I’m seeing Twin Peaks: The Return making a lot of year end lists in TV, and film. Can someone tell me what’s so great about this last season?

    I did a Twin Peaks crash course before watching The Return. I saw both of the original seasons, along with Fire Walk With Me and enjoyed both for the most part (Season 2 had some weak spots). However, The Return didn’t do much for me.

    There are beautiful sequences in it, and I did think the actors did a good job. But the main problem for me is Lynch’s self indulgence. The show moves at a snails pace, and has about 100 different storylines but only wraps up about 10 of them by the end. What they did with Agent Cooper for the majority of the season was infuriating as well. Then there are scenes in there that go on for minutes where absolutely nothing is happening.

    Perhaps Lynch will come out and admit that he made this just to prove that his fans will blindly love anything he puts out, in which case I’d call this entire season a masterpiece. Until that day though Twin Peaks: The Return is one of the most self indulgent pieces of entertainment I’ve ever seen. I’m sure Lynch, and his fans will take that as a compliment.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Yes it is! Here’s ma profile: https://letterboxd.com/SpiderRider/

  • TheDeadFellow

    In my book, yes. It opened up to 90+ million in freakin’ January and wound up making half a billion dollars when all was said and done. Take a look:

    http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=americansniper.htm

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I made it 2 episodes

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Patti cake$
    It’s highly enjoyable but somebody owes Craig Brewer some royalties.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I have a notebook i write my shit down in.
    Plus my Facebook has a list
    Plus i have over 100 screenshots of films
    And now letterboxd
    Movies all over the place
    Edited
    I have no idea to answer your latest question

  • But I like your idea. Better to keep track of what I want to watch than with JustWatch. Does it recognize everything you search for?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m using it to keep track of the (say it with me now) obscure films i need to see.

  • I have all my discs logged on Blu-ray.com, but this sounds better. Think I have an account there too. Time to peruse, because all of my internet is full of Star Wars.

  • Guess I won’t post on Valentine’s Day.

  • Indianamcclain

    True. It’s not everyday that you get to see a man torn apart by two T-Rex’s.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I believe so
    It’s very popular

  • Is that was @thedeadfellow:disqus has? I think he has something similar to that but with a different name.

  • Didn’t we just have a talk about to stop drunk writing? ;P

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Like pintrest but for movies.
    It helps you keep track of the films you’ve seen and the films you want to see.
    You can write reviews, make lists or check out other people’s lists

  • It’s definitely the most violent.

  • When should we tell Josh to expect his copy of Wish Upon?

  • LUCKY

  • Damn I had high hopes for that one.

  • What is this letterboxd you speak of?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/fecfd6708e3b886a23c3a64afb8e99871923d4d9a296776ab43a16d162da5f07.png
    Finally made a letterboxd account.
    Don’t know why it’s taken me so long.

  • My main takeaway from the film was two women who saw the movie by themselves. As they were leaving they were discussing how it compared to the original trilogy, with the one feeling like Disney has watered down the franchise too much. And then the one pointed at the Greatest Showman poster and said, “Andrew loves him.”
    Boyfriend detected.

  • Indianamcclain

    Maybe the best thing about any new Star Wars trilogy is that it’s an opportunity for a new generation to see the OT. Perhaps that’s even more important than the movies being good themselves.

    The prequels introduced me to the Star Wars Universe so I personally have a hard time hating them. I think the same thing will happen for the kids watching these new films.

  • Indianamcclain

    The trailer looked interesting.

  • Indianamcclain

    Best Jurassic Park sequel imo.

  • Indianamcclain

    I need to revisit Tinker, Tailor. Was kind of bored by it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I think the studio fucked that film

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Glad to have you.
    Have some fancy cheese.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I thought this was hilarious…which may mean it’s time to go to bed.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Nor I. They were used sparingly and amusingly. There was no attempt made for them to be Minions…or ewoks.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Which is incredible to me since Tinker Tailor and Let the Right One In are both perfect.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The best music

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • ResonanceCascade

    But seriously, I’m looking forward to watching The Orville. I hear it’s great.

  • ResonanceCascade

    Seth MacFarlane on most weeknights?

  • King Alvarez

    ‘The Snowman’ might be the worst movie I’ve seen all year.

  • King Alvarez

    I didn’t hate them as I thought I would.

  • King Alvarez

    It was worse than I expected. So much of the trailers aren’t in the movie, weird editing, lazy misdirections and just plain boring.

  • ResonanceCascade

    The Snowman looks soooo baaaad. Poor Michael Fassbender needs to fire his agent.

  • King Alvarez

    Me too. Minus a few little things. Overall I thought it was well done. In other news, I just watched ‘The Snowman’ and wow, was it atrocious.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Who knows 82 people!?

  • Going to see Star Wars tomorrow

  • Someone mailed me a Porg for Christmas.

  • Lost World Jurassic Park and beers.

    Fun Fact- ive mailed 82 Christmas cards so far this year.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It’s so damn good.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Really? I guess I feel like his performance is less nuanced than say, Terrence Howard or even Jake Gylenhaal. Jackman does angry really well but it felt like the character gets a tad simplistic in the middle. But I’m not trying to make fun, he was really good in it. My favorite performance by him is likely still the Prestige.

  • Indianamcclain

    American Sniper made huge bank domestically.

  • Indianamcclain

    I’m optimistic about it, but you’re probably right.

  • I love it, but that’s true: It really tests one suspension of disbelief.
    I think it might be my favorite Hugh Jackman performance too.

  • William Dhalgren

    American Sniper was a blockbuster? I have to agree with Indiana, Fury Road is the first summer blockbuster in a long time that I can remember having an R rating.

  • William Dhalgren

    Jar Jar wins, dude. Jar Jar wins.

  • William Dhalgren

    Heh, makes me want to rewatch it.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Nah, it started with American Sniper and then was cemented with Deadpool.

  • William Dhalgren

    By porn music.

  • William Dhalgren

    I think I’m ready to join you in the “I don’t care about Star Wars” brigade.

  • William Dhalgren

    I think all this is gonna do is make good men and women leery of working with one another while the pervs go on about their gross work.

  • William Dhalgren

    That’s not the only thing they’re bad at.

  • William Dhalgren

    I love the popcorn. But I am not yet drunk.

  • Who’s drunk and has 2 thumbs and loves The Orville?

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    I saw Coco. Damn fine film.

  • Kemosabe 🦇

    Music is good for drowning out all other distracting sounds, instrumental music is less distracting than music with lyrics/singing. It’s the least distracting distraction. Helps you focus better.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    But this month is dead!

  • TheGreenMalice

    I am trying to avoid everything until tomorrow. So far I am successful!

  • Indianamcclain

    So far it’s my favorite film from this month.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Hopefully the shape of the water is a success

  • Indianamcclain

    I feel like there’s a grace period of at least a month before websites start posting spoilers in headlines.

  • Might not go til January lol. I’m pretty busy until then. Either I go tomorrow or January. thats how free my schedule is for a 2.5 hour movie.

  • I’ll touch on it but 2017 had like 5+ R-Rated blockbuster smash successes.

  • Indianamcclain

    When are you seeing the film?

  • Indianamcclain

    Looking forward to it. Although you could say that started with Prometheus, or Mad Max: Fury Road.

  • YAAASSSSS

  • ScreenRant is notoriously bad at not spoiling stuff. They have about 20 SW articles and they do shit like “so and so final blah blah means [SPOILER]” but the title alone is almost a spoiler.

    Smh

  • Not to mention the return of the r rated blockbuster (*cough post on that coming soon cough*)

  • Indianamcclain

    I have a feeling that 2017 is gonna go down as a historic year in terms of Hollywood. We’ve seen the collapse of both Fox, and the Weinstein Company.

    Hopefully, sexual assault against both men and women within the industry is also coming to an end. Though I still have mixed feelings about how the allegations were handled.

  • TheDeadFellow

    SUPREME LEADER SNOKE IS ACTUALLY A BUNCH OF PORGS

  • Spoilers yeesh

  • Hahaha Sailor is the only person I know who could churn out a good review with depth every day no matter what the movie is. I couldn’t do that.

  • TheDeadFellow

    I was pleased by it.

    Greatly.

  • King Alvarez

    Me too.

  • TheDeadFellow

    So I saw The Last Jedi.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I felt really mixed on it. It has great direction and it had me for the first half but in the third act especially, things got so far-fetched that I checked out.

  • Indianamcclain

    I love Prisoners as well

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Oh God yeah! That’s one of my favorites of all time (it flips back and forth with Social Network as my favorite Fincher film). I finally got around to watching Prisoners recently, and my main takeaway was that I should rewatch Zodiac, a superior serial killer film with Jake Gyllenhal.

  • Indianamcclain

    I did see Zodiac for the first time which was awesome. I can retroactively say it’s one of the best films of 2007.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    It is long, but as with most Fincher joints, the pacing is so sharp, I don’t tend to notice.

  • Indianamcclain

    Only problem I have with it is the runtime. I keep forgetting that it’s over 2 hours long when I revisit it.

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Finally used my MoviePass. It sucks that you can’t reserve your seat in the app, but it’s still very easy to use. Paid for itself after one movie. I’ll be seeing that Space Wizard film tonight.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    He said
    “That’s my favorite rob zombie song”

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I get distracted

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    How about Daily Duke? 😛

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I was standing in line at the register tonight and my kid, who hasn’t even watched all the Star Wars films, starts telling me about spoilers after he saw an advertisement for the film. I asked him how he knew and apparently that’s the chatter in the schoolyard. So, word to the wise – avoid school children. 😉

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I like music every now and then. If it’s something very personal and dramatic, it definitely calls for it. However, it’s likely to be instrumental only so not to distract. 🙂

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Not even Classical? That is supposed to make you smarter somehow. (Studies have shown something to this effect.)

  • THAT IS NOT DRAC U LA!

  • Truer words have never been commented.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Maybe that’ll be a new years resolution

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Porgs
    Porgs won the war

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I wish i could write to music.
    I need shit to be silent like the grave.

  • From the get-go it can’t be like Logan, because that one despite being stand-alone greatly benefited from almost 20 years of background with these characters/actors.
    I get what you mean though, but I don’t trust Sony, and frankly like I said below I’m pretty sure I’d rather they just fail so they’ll stop their Spider-verse non-sense (ideally they’ll fail financially while still making a good STAND-ALONE movie I guess)

  • I consider myself to have a fairly open mind, but I did not like the Jim & Andy documentary. This “enlightened” Carrey kind of just seems like a product of fame and fortune. I’d love to “lose myself” and have no worries, but I gotta pay the rent. And I’m still not convinced that method acting is much more than an aggravation to the cast and crew.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    That fandom has only been around for Like 7 years and will die in about 5.
    Star wars has been around for 40 and will never die

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Say it louder
    He can’t hear you

  • I’d like to think it’ll be Sony’s Logan, but I’m not holding my breath.

  • My comic shop had signs saying “Star Wars Spoiler Free Zone”

  • Not this guy. Worst I’ve ever done is ask for my money back after the theater owner kept letting people in for Catching Fire resulting in there not being enough seats. He gave me a ticket stub for a free movie. I’d rather have gotten my money back

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Damn guys, Fight Club really holds up. I don’t know that the way it’s been embraced is because of its darkly ironic messages, but damn is it well put together.

  • DryButSoupy

    I’m gonna have to disagree and say that Walking Dead (tv show) fans are the worst. They don’t deal well with someone criticizing their show. It’s personal.

  • DryButSoupy

    In fairness, most people would probably act that way at practically any movie. People are the worst.

  • DryButSoupy

    Oh yeah. Duh. Sony. WTF was I thinking?

  • Spidey is with Sony actually, the Fox deal has nothing to do with him.

    And for now they have a weird deal, it’s something like Sony still owns the character but they “borrowed” him, so they are still producers on the movie but Marvel basically makes it (that’s why Homecoming was actually good, lol)

  • DryButSoupy

    Well, originally wasn’t Spidey going to revert back to Fox after a set number of movies? With Disney buying some of Fox, though, that’s probably out the window. It’s all madness. Madness.

  • DryButSoupy

    I’m spending less time in certain places online because I’m trying to avoid spoilers. I don’t want to know who wins the Star War before I’m able to watch the Star War.

  • DryButSoupy
  • That’s not Dracula!

  • Something better for you (not saying I didn’t enjoy that).

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U6dxYka2tRk

  • smh I think that was another reason I avoided watching the films for so long. The hype and fandom is ridiculous.

  • I haven’t had regular monsoon a day since like November!

  • King Alvarez
  • King Alvarez

    Late is 10pm these days, right?

  • I mean, I don’t have a problem with a Venom movie without Spider-Man, or any other villain without Spider-Man. In fact, that sounds rather refreshing and new, to have a movie about the “villain” without having the hero involved. However, basing a universe on this is absurd and surely can not work for Sony or the MCU in the long or even in the short term…

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I agree the whole thing is ridiculous but it’s no more ridiculous than the comic industry.
    I literally don’t see the difference.
    The problem is when they’re bad and this films cast is giving me hope.
    Michelle Williams usually doesn’t sign up for garbage

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Good news bad news
    You’re about to get a new list and a huge end of the year write up but that means no time for monsoon a day till January

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I used to love staying up late and would often get my best schoolwork done at around 2am. Now I’m toast before midnight. If I lay down during the day for any reason, I tend to nod off. LOL

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    Yeah, basically he said that Louis C.K. was a “one-time offender”, meaning that he would not repeat his gross, perverted behaviour. Damon should STFU at this point.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I’ll try to be a Dracula tomorrow or Monday morning if I can. 😀

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I am so out of the loop with this Star Wars Madness! I am missing the daily dosage of Monsoon, I must admit.

  • Yes, but having a SpiderVerse without Spider-Man is the dumbest way to do it, it’s ridiculous.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    All things will be universes.
    Single films don’t exist anymore.

  • I don’t care.
    Hell, it’s even worse if it’s good because then they will continue making their parasitic Spiderverse universe.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    It could still be good.

  • I love Tom Hardy, but this umpteenth attempt from Sony to build a shared universe is pathetic, nonsensical and will surely end up damaging the superhero brand.
    F*ck that movie, and f*ck them

  • Hahahahah

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Star wars kills everything.
    That’s why y’all ain’t getting my new list till Monday

  • This thread is deader than Luke’s relatives.

  • Sailor Monsoon
  • Which one?

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I just watched a Dracula film.
    It wasn’t that film though.
    So not exactly relevant.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Dracula Club Assemble!!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    “Can you guys cool it? It’s a movie.”
    It’s star wars.
    Star wars fans are the worst fans and it’s the biggest fandom

  • Have the jedi taught them nothing?!1

  • AMC employees got cursed by SW fans after the projector broke so the screening was cancelled. Can you guys cool it? It’s a movie.

  • True.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    But spurlock outed himself.
    No one came forward yet

  • Add Morgan Spurlock and Dustin Hoffman to the sexual allegations list.

    And Matt Damon is under fire for his comments he mad talking about the sexual allegations. Alyssa Milano tore him a new one.

  • Makes me sort of want to see the film sooner than later.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Oh yeah, you’re not alone, fans seem evenly split. It’s super interesting to me. I liked it a lot, but it’s not my favorite thing so I am just enjoying sitting back and watching.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Star. Wars.

  • William Dhalgren

    161 comments? Where is everyone?

  • William Dhalgren

    Duuuude.

  • William Dhalgren

    Spoke to my wife’s cousin tonight (he’s about the same age as me) and he despised this film.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    This craziness surrounding the reaction to the Last Jedi is fascinating to me. I’ll be really curious how it settles out in a week or two. It definitely improved Force Awakens for me but I know a lot of people feel like TFA was the better film.

  • Watching Force Awakens now. The Last Jedi has made this movie better.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Yes, but Blu-Ray > Streaming, any day of the week.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I get that reference

  • Sailor Monsoon

    But it’s free on Amazon prime!

  • Sony is making a Venom movie.
    That’s bad.
    It’s starring Tom Hardy.
    That’s good.
    But it’s not in the MCU.
    That’s bad.
    It has the director of Zombieland.
    That’s good.
    But he also did Gangster Squad.
    That’s bad.
    Venom will be an anti-hero instead of a villain.
    Can I go now?

  • AGENTS OF SHIELD

  • TheDeadFellow

    The Lost City of Z is going for 10 bucks on Amazon. This is me after seeing that deal:

  • Thanks for the info

  • Indianamcclain

    And people are enjoying it.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Watch that shit again son.
    It holds up

  • Sailor Monsoon

    And it has a crazy cool cast

    All The Money In The World screenings happened today. Embargo is up despite the GG nominations and is expected to be lifted on the 19th, according to this tweet:

  • Indianamcclain

    Good Time was pretty good, so I’m open to it. I don’t remember being a huge fan of the original 48 Hours.

  • Indianamcclain

    I still can’t believe there’s a sequel to Skyline out right now. The first film is terrible.

  • Indianamcclain

    Your boy Superman is officially part of the National Film Registry.

  • Indianamcclain

    The Drafthouse in Austin showed Die Hard in 35mm 2 weeks ago, but I just found out about it last week. I’m still kicking myself in the ass for missing it.

  • Back in the day it showed the tally. I miss that.

  • Going to the 3D show tomorrow. IMAX on Sunday.

  • Poe Dameron also has swagger.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    I’m actually excited for it

  • William Dhalgren

    No

  • Sailor Monsoon

    The safdie bros are remaking 48 hours

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Nah, I try to go to bed by 11 at the latest. Usually 10.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Haha, yeah, that was my wish too. I think you’ll like it.

  • TheDeadFellow

    For Rian Johnson to make a Star Wars movie to piss off people who though Force Awakens “played it safe”.

    Only one way to find out if I really got it and that’s tomorrow.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    High five yourself and pretend it was me

  • There can be only one Basement Bros!

    Wait…

  • Just be careful driving. It’s slippy.

  • Workin’ in the morning, workin’ in the evening, workin’ at suppertime, when pizza’s on a bagel you can eat pizza anytime.

  • Get out!

  • Sailor Monsoon

    1:30 is going to be early for me

  • It’s true. All of it.

  • You ever stay up late? I envy my high school days where I’d watch movies until 2am still wide awake. Now I’m ready to sleep at 11PM max

  • Not if you a Dracula boiiii!

    (takes Vitamin D)

  • I’m in the ripe 20s. Combine Cap and J-Mart’s ages and divide by awesomeness and you got Duke lol

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Pops is never lame.

  • For me studying like the night before the final my marks are ridiculously solid. I always wonder that if I pushed myself a little harder and didn’t procrastinate as much how many 90s I’d get lol

  • Amen. Knife bless.

  • Sailor Monsoon

    Welcome to the Dracula Club baby

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Look, I’m a comfortably heterosexual man, and I can without hesitation say that Oscar Isaacs is a beautiful man.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Actually I work my ass off at the beginning of projects so the end of the semester is when I’m already done with everything. It’s crazy stressful…but not at finals time. People really loathe me at finals time…

  • William Dhalgren

    Michael Jordan’s Feet?

  • William Dhalgren

    You have one of those little time rewinders that Herminone uses in Harry Potter?

  • William Dhalgren

    LOL

    How old are you, Duke?

  • William Dhalgren

    You really do, man. Poe would look way better in the metal bikini.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Yeah, I did that yesterday. Well, until 11. Then out running for an hour, then wasted time for a couple of hours, and then class. I do not know how my grades are so solid…

  • You know if you sleep in until noon the whole day really ends up wasted.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Yes. Yes I did. I need to go home and rethink my life.

  • William Dhalgren

    Wow. You went there.

  • No wonder you haven’t commented on a Movie Mashup!

  • 😐

  • William Dhalgren

    Aw, now you broke me. I HATE mash ups!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    They’re 100% real.

  • William Dhalgren

    Michael Jordan Franklin?

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I have a tab of that one open atm anyhow.

  • My bad. Fixed.

  • Fake Star Wars plot points thread
    / / / / /

  • William Dhalgren

    I have to wonder how much of that has to do with the content and how much has to do with…other things. We’ll have to have this convo in The Let’s Talk About thread. This will devolve into trouble for people who havent seen it real quick.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Yeah, I don’t like that so much.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Cough, Senator Jar Jar, cough.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I feel like Finn’s metal bikini was almost sexier than leia’s too.

  • Rode in from the past thanks to Deadpool and Cable

  • William Dhalgren

    Those Hutts, man. They do delight in the carnal pleasures…

  • Cops actually are cops. He goes to jail. Says “it’s ok. I stopped them” to his friend at the telephone meet up jails have. ends with him walking down the hall back to his cell.

  • William Dhalgren

    And Boba Fett onto Jar Jar’s tail. A crazy train of lost Star Wars characters!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Hehe, I knew who you meant.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    What’s the alternate?

  • Michael J. Fox! Don’t you play games with me Cap!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Eh, by that point Finn’s orgy with the Hutts had deadened me to surprise.

  • I thought it was crazy that Senator* Jar Jar was holding on to the tail of the TaunTaun.

  • Agreed. Ending had some plot issues. Original ending is much better than the alternate version though.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Megan Fox’s middle initial isn’t J man…

  • William Dhalgren

    I was stunned when Lando rode in on the two headed TaunTaun in the third act of The Last Jedi! How about you guys?!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    What was your wish?

  • I’ll probably see it next week. SW won’t ever be opening weekend for me unless MJF stars in one

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Yeah, I love the first 2/3, but the last 1/3 is so full of holes that it sort of ruined it for me. Still, Peele seems like a great director.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Not bad exactly, but it’s weird for a movie to be a critical darling and have fans be so split. It’s the reverse of things like Transformers.

  • TheDeadFellow

    I mentioned that earlier. Guess I got my wish for Last Jedi.

  • TheDeadFellow

    SEX SLAVE! OOOOOOOOOOOOH SHIT! Chris you better get the fuck outta there, man! You in some Eyes Wide Shut situation. LEAVE MOTHEAF-

  • you have ti write “spoiler” in singular for it to work

  • Well finished Get Out. Solid movie. I’ll put spoilers around what took me out of it;

    – Don’t know how he could have got that cotton in his ears.
    – Brother should have been dead with that boche ball to the head. Or loss of blood
    – so if they enter into their brains or take over the body or whatever, why do they still act so weird? And the grandparents so weird too?

  • Is it that bad?

  • So far I’ve been right on a couple things and only have one minor issue with it.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Haha, you guys, Rotten Tomatoes has Last Jedi at 93 % for critics but only 53% for fans. What a time to be alive.

  • I know I know, I’m just jesting.
    Though a movie ideally shouldn’t be watched while being distracted by dumb stuff like Disqus

  • Giving my thoughts.

  • Who’s watching Get Out next week? xD

  • You’re never lame : )

  • Bait!

  • Right? Lets have some respect for people watching it next week lol

  • What are you, asking for spoilers?
    Stop fooling around and watch the movie! Tsk

  • Get Out is slowly getting me creeped out. Can’t tell if the daughter is in on it or not.

  • DryButSoupy

    Workin’ today. Workin’ tomorrow. Tuesday and Wednesday will be my weekend.

  • Same.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I hate Star Trek, sorry guys. :-/

  • Star Trek Discovery!

  • Watching Get Out because I need a break from all the Christmas movies I’ve watched (literally just been Deck the Halls).

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    LOL I was just referring to his original taste in movies. It’s actually a compliment even though I was making a lame attempt at being humorous. 😉

  • Mad skillz!

  • Green blooded animal!

  • He’s way more important than a Sailor Junior. : ) Ben can only be Ben. There can only be one.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    You are out of your Vulcan mind!

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I took the bait on that one. Naughty Duke!
    Oh well, Bing will be making an appearance on Classic Film Talk twice next week. It’ll be spirited around here no matter what! 😉

  • Yes let’s switch to Star Trek.

  • I always do feel lost myself when I disable them. But, it’s safer this way.

  • As we all do. But it’s a necessary must.

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, I christen you Sailor, Jr.

  • But we can compromise and only talk about the Star Wars Holiday special!

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I second this notion! It’s Christmas, people!!!

  • 🎅Poppity🌟

    I understand the purpose but I use the recent comments stream to keep track of comments. Now I feel a bit lost, to be honest! Damn you, Star Wars phenomenon!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I got skills!

  • Impressive once again.

  • I scan the headlines looking for stuff I can read and smh at. L

  • Lost… in spaaace!

  • Where art thou, Jason Eisener? https://vimeo.com/5048966

  • Cap_N_Jack

    They’re writing is awful right now…but the same is true of the other sites I normally read (AV Club).

  • It shows up in my Google feed a lot, but I’ll usually just glean the headline and then read the story elsewhere. What can I say… I’m petty.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    I do too. I don’t really click anymore but I like to know what’s going on via headlines.

  • I’m pretty surprised you still go there!

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Thank you! It’s not intentional, but those books and films have such a strong design sense that I still take it as a compliment.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Not supposed to look like a D, just supposed to replace it. And yes, drawn by myself by hand.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Everyone needs to watch this, even people who don’t play video games.

  • Listening to 80s music
    Bizarre Love Triangle by New Order

  • King Alvarez

    HA! We’ll see if that actually happens. Then maybe minds can be lost.

  • King Alvarez

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I wish I was that witty and vengeful.

  • Eh, you never know. I’m not sure how they announce their results, but I don’t think it’s completely impossible that it ends up being at least mentioned. Judging from the comments several people typed in their own picks. We’ll see I guess

  • Huh. So it does have a (very inconsequential) effect, good to know

  • I never do that for a couple reasons:
    – I doubt they count them
    – no way would there be enough to make a difference

    It’s mostly there to prevent “how come so and so isn’t there” allowing you to vote for whatever you want.

  • Pushes comments to the bottom if you go by best. So if you and me both have comments with 10 upvotes, but yours has 1 downvote, mine will appear before yours.

    It used to take away an upvote but not anymore.

  • /redacted has a New Angie who’s losing her mind over Taranatino doing Star Trek. It’s funny.

  • Question of the week: What’s the purpose of the Disqus down-vote?

  • Interesting.

    Or maybe you’re just saying that so I don’t go and fix it bc you’re still traumatized over Woody Woodpecker.

  • DBMIs been doing that ever since someone spoiled Thor 3 for him lol

  • TheDeadFellow

    Whoever turned off the comment stream on the site is a smart man/woman.

  • Yeah, their nominees aren’t the best, but there’s an option for you to write in your own pick, just do that 🙂

  • King Alvarez

    working for me

  • I also got a Harry Potter vibe from this.

  • Is the header gif working for anyone? It’s supposed to be Buddy the Elf in the revolving door.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Pretty good. Got caught in some other writing things for fun but the Go review is coming along nicely.

  • 🙁

    How’s the Review Roulette ‘Go’ing? (I couldn’t help myself with that pun)

  • It was “either vote for superhero comics or Saga”

    I didn’t read why they were picked so idk if there was an issue count or nominations before that but no Archie Comics noms? They’re doing some of the best shit in the industry right now.

    So I voted for Saga whenever I could because Fiona Staples is the best comic artist working rn.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Spiders are precious creatures and should be treated as such.

  • TheDeadFellow

    Last Jedi this Saturday at 12:45 in the big screening room. Oh mama, this is gonna be interesting, especially considering the jarring critic/audience scores on RT right now.

  • TheDeadFellow

    In your dreams, pal.

  • How come?

  • King Alvarez

    Thank you sir!

  • Well that voting just pissed me off.

  • After this weekend no more Star Wars talk!

  • Very nice. Is that a hand drawn spider from yourself? If so that’s impressive.

    Is it supposed to look like a D tho?

  • Cap_N_Jack
  • Cap_N_Jack

    Almost wrapped my finals work…which is cool because it’s not due for another four or five days.

  • Cap_N_Jack

    Enjoy!

  • Important message for all comic readers:
    Go support your favorite creators by voting for them in the different categories of IGN’s “Best of 2017” award: http://www.ign.com/wikis/best-of-2017-awards/Best_Comic_Book_Series
    IGN is the biggest website that regularly talks about comics, so the results of the votes over there will surely be taken into account by the industry.

    Oh, and don’t miss out on today’s YouTube Pop Culture Friday, it celebrates Star Wars and should be a great way to get exited for the universe and refresh your memory before watching The Last Jedi.

  • King Alvarez

    The Last Jedi, tomorrow morning, 10:45. Nothing else matters after that.
