  1. I was at DeShauns house yesterday and I asked to use his towel to dry my hands and man that thing was stiff as a board and pretty small.
  2. The Northman, I watched it at the theater on a big screen and visually, great. Main part of movie, ok. Last third or so of movie not so much. To each their own, some will like it, most will not.
  3. My opinion. She didn't plan on letting them escape. The tracker was a back up in case they came for her and got away. At the end of this season they will need to believably explain why no one is after Leia now that they think she is part of an underground rebellion, maybe they wash it off as only Third Sister was after her. So unless she spends the time between this show and ANH entirely with the Rebellion it will be hard to explain.
  4. I think the drama is still there but MTV edits some of it out, we didn't see the Ashley - Josh issue last year. But yeah, now that its serious money they are drinking a little less and making better decisions, dammit!
  5. Going to revive this topic to say that The Challenge All Stars is pretty good this season, added new younger all stars and every cast member has been to a final so no softies. Also for those interested there will be a mainstream CBS channel The Challenge starting in July. Cast from across CBS reality shows, 500,000 grand prize, top female and male go on to compete in a new show, The Challenge world?, can't remember title, on Paramount+. It will pit winners from several different challenge shows across the world and the new CBS one.
  6. Is he the guy who represented Robert Kraft?, cuz he "got him off"...
  7. Not a surprise since it came out that they provided Watson with a NDA to give the massage therapist. Hmm...why would he need that. And they provided the room for him to use. I mean it became comical last week when Watsons lawyer said it wasn't illegal to get a happy ending..
  8. It would be interesting if it got tied in and made sense. Could use the adults that are already in Russia for the plot.. still, get out of Dorne and leave it behind.
  9. I love every minute of this. I just wish the Browns couldn't void his contract. They should have to eat it for getting him while all of this was still unsettled. That or if they voided it they had to pay all that money to womens shelters and the victims. Lets not give Browns fans the bends... start them out on one year as Lions fans and then move them to Cinnci. I think the shock of going straight to CInnci fans would be too much for their systems. Let them suffer one more year.
  10. Binged this over the last week, and like someone mentioned above, doing it this way does blur the details unlike GOT were we had a week to rewatch and analyze every damn little thing to death. I love this season so far. When I love a season I sure as hell don't want less of it so I don't understand the wanting shorter episodes. Why would I want less of what I like? That said if something was to be cut... Russia = Dorne.... just quit it. Unless there is some earth shattering reveal we had to be in Russia for this is just annoying. I mean how did Hopper do that to his foot and then walk, run, and fight on it? Like most I like the way they are handling the OG's as they were called. They are getting older and have different interests and will grow apart some and the show at least addresses that reality. Overall I'd say this is a huge improvement over last season and one of my favorites.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. He heard that there is young actress in Obi-Wan who runs a lot so he wanted to remind us that he can too!
  14. 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.
  15. Yeah I remember when they were both there in Minne...great duo
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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.
