    U.S. Politics- SCOTUS 2: The Election Strikes Back

    There has to be something else though, doesn't there? I mean, conservatives get everything they want and more if Trump is removed and Pence is put in place...hell, they'd get a Justice with even stronger conservative credentials and the exact same runner stamp for all their little tax games...

    Random Alolan geodude in the wild this morning, as well as digletts appearing in my nearby box, but haven't gotten one of those yet...

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    One would hope this plot hole will be resolved with Avengers 4, seeing as we haven't seen Hawkeye yet. Though there is some strangeness to Scott's case...

    You have one of those 2000 slotted pokedexes don't you?

    Actually got three shiny squirtles...no shiny sunglass ones though. Do people actually keep these special pokemon if they're not great for battling?

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    I agree that there needed to be some hand waving...but I'm not 100% certain I care. It's a summer movie. A comic book movie. It isn't required that we worry too much about the real world ramifications of the plot, provided it hangs together in rough form. That there was ultimately no true villain in the end, I found interesting. Ghost had specific motivations that made basic sense. The effects for her phasing I thought were very nicely done. I think this movie might suffer a tiny bit from its connection to the overall MCU. If it was all out there on it's own, perhaps a bit more time could have been devoted to exploring the Quantum Realm and its secrets. As for the physics of the shrunken items, yeah, it's something you need to not think about too much, but it is somewhat consistent with source material.

    What’s your all time favorite book series?

    Pern. Not the stuff after Anne though. That stuff is drivel and terrifying If we're talking favorites, and not best, then I do enjoy Turtledove's Timeline 191 series. Also Mccullough's Masters of Rome. ASOIAF is a given.

    Yet there is a substantial group that thinks TFA is the bee's knees...but I digress...

    Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Spoilers

    I liked it. It wasn't, as you indicated, heavy at all, and that may have allowed the various stories to falter a little. Ghost may have needed a little more, true, but indie walk out of the theater wondering if she was actually the villain. And the small Bill Foster twist did cause me to start. The first post credit scene might have been decided upon after the fact with Avengers being out, it it nicely framed the timeline and set up Ant Man credibly to be in the next Avengers.

    Yes! A simple and elegant name for a less than simple or elegant read.
