  1. The past week Watched Stranger Things new season and I loved it. I am sure if I took notes I'd remember the parts that were slow or off track but I liked this a lot more than last season. Now I'll go to the Stranger Things thread and remember all that and be told it sucks! Also watched the first couple episodes of The Boys and loved that even more. For some reason I like flawed "heroes" more than most. To me Homelander is more realistic than Superman. Going to have bad days, get mad, lose control sometimes. Obviously not the degree Homelander does, but it would happen. Watched Ambulance on Peacock. It was slightly better than I thought from the previews, I expected garbage and this was an ok action movie. The one thing I found that kept taking me out of the movie was the obvious drone footage. It was like the movie was advertising just how much a drone can do on a film set. One scene they flipped two cars basically just so the drone could fly underneath one of them as they flipped to get a cool shot. And yes, it was cool shot, but you could feel it was staged and just seemed out of place.
  2. Well, my thought on why he was there Watched the three episodes this weekend and loved them. Homelander is a toned down Donald Trump, or maybe thats' backwards!? The worse he behaves the better his numbers and the more fringe people come out to support him. Also, I am sure I am not the only one who thinks
  3. He heard that there is young actress in Obi-Wan who runs a lot so he wanted to remind us that he can too!
  4. I enjoyed this episode right up until the last part of the battle. There in lies the problems with this type of power, you show Vaders strength but then the same wall of fire he just extinguished erupts and allows Ben to get away? Put the fire out again or force pull him to you. IMO it would have been better to have the droid pop out of the fire and attack like a Terminator catching Vader by surprise allowing Ben to escape. One last gripe, I'm tired of seeing Leia run already, believe we have seen her run for extended period of time in every episode. For some reason when she runs I see an Ewok running. I was also surprised at the level of carnage Disney let Vader do, gives me hope for future shows.
  5. Yeah I remember when they were both there in Minne...great duo
  6. Wow, just heard that Marion Barber was found dead today, 38 years old. Had a rough time since he left the NFL, mental issues. Loved watching him as a Cowboy for a few years.
  7. It's something they have been doing since the covid shut down, at least for the bigger movies. I've seen similar openings with the stars for other ones. Nice touch. I went to a Friday matinee, work schedule necessitated it, and it was mostly empty. I have an app so I can check what seats are sold and pick mine and I usually check like three showings for three days and see what is mostly open and all the showings were like that. It must have picked up after I saw it. Saw plenty of friends on social media went and loved it, two different ones have gone twice.
  8. I accidently deleted my genius response and don't feel like typing it again! One thing, the screening I went to was maybe 20% full. Same day and time of the week for Dr. Strange and it was 80% full and yet Top Gun set records? The night showings must have been selling out
  9. I think she did good, I just think they gave her too much of a spotlight. I had more of an issue with the inquisitors. 3rd sister is clearly ambitious and gets chastised for it, but isn't ambition and personal glory a part of the dark side? Why act like she is doing something unexpected. Also, do we know her(3rd sister) backstory in the animated series or books? I am assuming she is one of the children we see in the opening Order 66 sequence, a couple of those kids were black females.
  10. I don't know the minutia of Star Wars, never read the books or watched the animated shows so maybe this has been covered. If Obi-Wan is concerned about Lukes safety then shouldn't he be on a different planet? I mean if the Inquisitors find him on the same planet, same "neighborhood", as Uncle Owen Skywalker shouldn't they wonder if that was a coincidence. The inquisitors may not know Uncle Owen is there but Darth Vader has to know. So him even being there puts Luke at more of a risk while he is being hunted. If they weren't hunting Jedi then yeah ok he should be ok.
  11. Also watched it today, on a large screen, which enhances the movie. Pretty good for a almost 40 year old sequel. I read a review with 3 former Top Gun graduates who said its pretty accurate. They of course recognized flaws like Maverick riding the elevator with the jets but overall spot on. The other major flaw was call signs, the said most of them are not flattering like Cougar and Wolf...usually its a nickname you don't like based on something you screwed up.
  12. Watched Top Gun Maverick today and there were no where near the same amount of people at it as there was for Dr. Strange a few weeks ago. I liked the movie, plenty of action and the story worked well enough. There were a few too many sequences that mirrored the original but that was expected. Still recommend to see this on the biggest loudest screen you can. Some movies just need it. This isn't going to win an oscar for best picture but it was a good enjoyable movie. One other note, related to the movie
  13. In fairness the boy dying was an unforseen incident. They were in the middle of no where, what are the odds of him showing up? So yes, that was a heist you could root for. Even your comment about helping destroy lives, people who are addicts are going to find a way to get their fix, if not the blue then some other drug.
  14. Survivor finished last night, I liked the season, thought there were some really good players in it. But.. Good season but ugh.
  15. Ray Liotta died, may have to watch some of his work again in remembrance. The man was a narrator almost on par with Morgan Freeman, well maybe not on par but damn good in his own right.
  16. Goodfellas is one of my all time favorites and he was perfect in the role. Field of Dreams was another one, Cop Land, he was also good in the recent Shades of Blue, tv cop series. He will always be Henry Hill though.
  17. To be fair, I'm invested in 3 pages worth and I just want to see how it ends!
  18. Ok, I remember something from his deposition leaked, that he acknowledged one session ended with the girl crying. He texted her after it apologizing and asking if there was a way she would be comfortable working on him again! But yeah, he is innocent and all 22 accusers are lying. Just when we thought the Browns were on the way up they find a way to out Brown the Browns.
  19. Get ready to enjoy Meg Ryan at her maximum cuteness. Also, keep a white hand towel nearby since everyone sweating in the movie may induce you to sweat too.
  20. Did I miss something new or is this the general fuck them since they signed the person potentially responsible for sexual misconduct with over 20 women, even before that issue was settled, to record setting deal?
  21. Well I guess I'll bite on this. I didn't hate the ending of GOT. I thought they had a better way to end it, my personal choice would have been Jon Snow getting beheaded in the same square that Ned did. Beginning and end. I think this and many other forums dedicated to ASOIAF are not fair representations of the general viewing public because we read the books and were heavily invested in it. We had years to build up what WE thought should happen and how WE thought it should end, so when it doesn't happen our way it seems worse than it maybe really was. And one other thing. KEEP THE BIG BANG THEORY OUT OF YOUR MOUTH!
  22. I was surprised Howard died but as soon as I saw the candle flicker the first time I knew Lalo was there. I guess he sees Saul as a cockroach since he appears to have decided to go after him when he saw it scurrying in the sewer. My guess is Kim's conscience kicks in and she can't handle the guilt and splits. Either the vacuum cleaner route or just leaves Saul the old fashioned way. I can't see them killing her, IMO that would destroy Saul and he wouldn't be the Saul we know in BB. Will be interesting to see how they handle the Howard mess. Does he just disappear? Not sure how they can explain him being killed there without exposing Lalo.
  23. Re watching Top Gun right now, first time in years. Man, I forgot just how many scenes there are where people are sweating
