  1. It was entertaining, even if not without problems, some of them typical of the superhero genre- how come Elektra lasts more than 3 seconds against Cage, for one- some of them of the show itself, specially the villains not feeling particularly threatening, even if they were well acted. There were some improvements from the other shows- at least it looks like Iron Fist can fight, for one (probably because Finn Jones actually had time to train), and with 8 episodes there wasn't really a lot of wasted time like on some shows. The banter between the four of them worked very well too. Also, can we PLEASE end the "introducing the villain as he butchers some animal to make him look threatening" trope? It was great when it started with Tywin, it worked fine for Limehouse, but now it seems it happens in every goddamned show.
  2. FIFA selected 12 coaches to run for the Coach of the Year award: Massimiliano Allegri Carlo Ancelotti Antonio Conte Luis Enrique Pep Guardiola Leonardo Jardim Joachim Low José Mourinho Mauricio Pochettino Diego Simeone Tite Zinedine Zidane Basically, a mix of people that earned the right to be there and people who are there blatantly for name recognition alone. Zidane will win this one even more easily than Ronaldo (and deservingly so), but I'd like to see Jardim and Tite being nominated as well (although they won't).
  3. One of them says Marty's laundering would be noticed way sooner, but .
  4. Finished it. A solid show, but nothing really revolutionary.
  5. I don't know how a show that portrays a murderous drug dealer sending a teenager to be an unwilling suicide bomber that blows up an airplane mid-flight only to murder a presidential candidate (that turns out wasn't even there in the first place) counts a positive portrayal of that murderous drug dealer.
  6. Once the Emmys choose an actor from a show, they'll nominate him every year and usually only him from the same show. See GoT, which each season apart from one (and even then it's debatable) had someone being better than Dinklage, yet he kept being nominated and even won in a year in which he was clearly embarrassed to win.
  7. 2017 and people still vote for fucking House of Cards *sigh*...
  8. Also: Drogba (well, he's older, but reached his prime around at the same time as Rooney), Eto'o, Muller, Villa, Ibra...and that's just the strikers.
  9. I wouldn't go that far, but he's good. His motivations are solid and understandable, and not just "DOMINATE THE WORLD!RRRR!".
  10. This was pretty entertaining, certainly the best Spidey movie in the last 10 years. Very unambitious and always funny, occasionally hilarious. It's not perfect by any means- too much Stark and Happy Hogan, not enough good material for Keaton (but when there is, he delivers, in a really great scene), the fight scenes are fine, but unmemorable- but overall it captures well what a Spider-Man movie should be. Oh, and stay until the end of the credits. Being patient is the right thing, I promise.
  11. Fantastic finale. I wasn't expecting to see Chuck going so soon, but it was fitting- he really had no reason to live for anymore. Also, unless Chuck had a will (which, granted, is possible) wouldn't Jimmy get his share of HHM? That's a potential story for s04.
  12. Jesus, it has been nearly three years since the 7-1? I AM getting old... Also, Puel was sacked by Southampton. I wonder whom they got in line to replace him.
  13. Also, keep in mind is that Tony is one of the few, if not the only person in the world that we seen can see that can build technology that can match the best Wakanda has to offer- it certainly makes sense Wakandans would try to keep a positive relationship with him.
  14. Nah, she mostly disappeared from the books shortly after that when the team split up. Cyclops was even dating Colleen Wing.
  15. "Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!" Poor Phillip. The entire season was to break him one step at a time. And yeah, Stan's girlfriend is a spy. Has to be.
