  1. Can Zelenskyy run in the Russian election against Putin?
  2. Anyone else preparing to go to the solar eclipse on April 8th? So far I have six people going with me to Niagara Falls, since the path of totality goes right through it (and Buffalo, NY). Got me some cool steampunky welder's glasses rated for eclipses too. Next one isn't until 2099. I missed the last total eclipse 50 years ago because it was too cloudy. I was in Grade 4. I've been astronomically bitter ever since!
  3. You're both nuts. I didn't think the first one was more than getting surface level details right, and left so much out. This part 10/10 got the story correct, focused on the right things, and was incredibly immersive for the whole run time. Edit: I'm rewatching the first part, only managed to see half of it before watching part 2. But part 2 does improve my appreciation for part 1.
  4. Got mine weeks ago for a 6pm show tomorrow. Strangely the only other seats taken in advance is the one immediately in front and behind me. I might move, that's creepy!
  5. A June premiere in the U.S. And the opening few minutes:
  6. Because you're so sheltered and wholesome.
  7. Surprised to open up Netflix just now and see the SAG awards promoted at the top there. Anyone know if any part of it is worth watching? Edit: oh yeah, Pedro Pascal is kind of drunk.
  8. good thread, covering the history of the military space industry and their cost-plus gorging on the public dollar.
  9. I think he made up that part where but you know what? I'm going to accept that. That's the answer. It happened that way.
  10. It's not exactly alternate history in terms of specific events retold. It's more a flavor of the times (vaguely pre to post French revolution, with a Prussian neighbor that seeks to take advantage, and eventually English style parliamentary politics). Secret identities, spies, con men, resistance militias... It's fun.
  11. I didn't understand how Master Chief was in one moment talking about Copper Team MIA on some far away world (Epislon Eridani?) and then the next moment concluding the Covenant was on Reach. What did I miss?
  12. The movie is a mishmash of the first two books, The Book of Three, and The Black Cauldron. But you would know that by now. There is a book of short stories set in Prydain too, The Foundling and Other Tales, but I wouldn't say it's a must-read. Loved the Prydain Chronicles as a kid and reread multiple times. I would take breaks from Lord of the Rings to reread. I understand there was development on a movie or tv series about 5 years ago but no news on that since. Westmark is excellent. I'd call it a secondary world with alternate history like G G Kay's post-Fionavar novels, except aimed at teens.
  13. Dropping that line No. ok, who is "She"? Neither of them thought to ask that?
  14. I don't know any of these characters, does this claim hold up?
  15. Interesting cast: Voiced by Natasha Lyonne, Maya Rudolph, Kieran Culkin, Keke Palmer, Stephanie Hsu, Bowen Yang and John Waters.
  16. A friend is trying to figure where to put his next documentary out. He's had them on National Geographic channel, Apple TV, Amazon Prime, and elsewhere. A teaser and a clip:
  17. also Best Editorial Team - Feature, Best Character Design, Best FX - Feature, Best Production Design - Feature.
  18. It used to be you'd have to wait years for the next robotic lander to launch to the Moon. Seven weeks into 2024 and now the 3rd lander of the year is on it's way. It's going to the south pole On schedule for a February 22 landing. Remarkably, Intuitive Machines has two more lunar landers to launch this year.
  19. Sounds like an adult version of character has been cast, I'm assuming in one of Paul's prescient visions:
