    GRRM's Age

    The popular meme of "sweet summer child" really applies to this one. Also, the first volume of Fire & Blood was released in November.

    Cartoons you'd like to see remade?

    Among those already mentioned: Gargoyles, ReBoot, Pirates of Dark Water and Adventures of the Galaxy Rangers (actually I wouldn't mind seeing the latter in a live-action format) BattleTech - didn't see many episodes, but it was cooooool!!! I wouldn't mind another version of Jonny Quest.
  3. HoMM V was the first one made by Ubisoft. It had all the elements to be as great HoMM III, but for some reason, they cut back on some of the features, though at the same time they did add some. They limited the hell out of the map editor, which was such a strong feature for HoMM III. I remember spending hours creating a map with a scenario in mind, only to find out there was a very limited number of town you could put in it. Then Ubisoft decided to change things up more, including the title structure, and the 6th one really wasn't that interesting or fun to play, not to mention the introduction of the online signup BS to get additional rewards. The seventh in the series had potential, too, with a well rounded skill system for the heroes, and more diverse factions and unit rosters than the 6th, but it was ridiculously buggy. It's actually the only one in the entire series for which I was able to finish all the campaign chapters. I suppose that speaks to the difficulty of the game, as the 3rd one was hard as hell. As it stands, this series probably one of the least supported in Ubisoft's library.
  4. Yes, considering the overall list of nominees, I don't mind Black Panther being there. Objectively speaking, it was the most solid blockbuster film this year, even though my preference is Infinity War. It's another nomination in a recent line of SFF movies that received a bit of a token nomination, like District 9, and even Blade Runner 2049, and in the process avoided fan backlash. It doesn't have many other nominations, none in the categories that should enforce a win (writing, directing, and acting). I am in full agreement with Black Panther's nominations in the music and costumes categories, and I'm glad it didn't get nominated for visual effects, which weren't that great. (Not sure what the Critics Choice Awards were thinking giving it the win there) I haven't seen many award-worthy movies this year. I'd say Ryan Gosling could have been there for First Man, but I've only seen Rami Malek out of all the contenders, so not sure if I can call it a snub. But First Man probably should have gotten a spot in the Best Picture category, and its music (Justin Hurwitz) is definitely a snub. It seems the Academy loves Alexandre Desplat. A small snub is Aquaman not getting in the visual effects category. Not sure why the ADHD inducing effects of Ready Player One are better, First Man's visuals were fine, but sub-par other space stories, imo, and... Cristopher Robin? ok...

    Football: the winter break

    Once again, Ronaldo has caught up to Messi, and even over took him, since I believe the fine he has to pay for defrauding the Spanish government in taxes is greater than Messi's.

    Anyone bored with Ironfist?

    Pretty sure there was a thread around here. And there is the main Marvel Netflix thread. Anyway, I'll echo the late to the party line.

    THE PUNISHER now a Netflix series

    As has been mentioned in the Daredevil thread, about the only hope for these shows to stay as they are is for Disney to put them on Hulu. Of course, the immediate problem with that is the original Marvel/Netflix deal was that if they leave Netflix they can't reappear except after 2 years. But there may be some negotiating going down over that currently. The outcry over Daredevil's cancellation was strong enough, I think, to warrant some attempts.

    You mean worse than the Hand plot?

    THE PUNISHER now a Netflix series

    OK, so overall I really enjoyed it, mainly because of the strong action moments, as well as good exposition for secondary characters, but I agree there are issues.

    NFL 2019: Wild Card, Mitches!

    That fucking idiot who lined up wrong. The Chiefs had the game there. You're on the edge, and you fail to see where the ball is? Send that guy to join the Bears kicker.

    Not that different in the US. That post-apocalyptic movie Io got put on the banner, not The Punisher.

    Bumping this to discuss new episodes. I've watched 4 episodes so far, and I'm enjoying it.

    Star Wars Thread: I KNOW WHAT THAT IS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Both Rebels and Clone Wars start that way, but they get more serious as the story moves along. That being said, I'm not watching the current Resistance show, because I don't like the animation style, and the premise didn't grab me. It looks even more childish than its predecessors.
