  • 'Watchmen' TV Series From Damon Lindelof In The Works At HBO

    Good news for A.Ron, that dick quota is going to get filled with Dr. Manhattan every week.  My only wish is that they cast Justin Theroux for the part, for obvious reasons.  Because he's a great actor.
  • 310 - Lantern

    Started to feel kind of bad for chuck but then remembered he told jimmy he wasn't all that important to him so yeah... #fuckchuck. We don't need no water let that mutherfucker burn!
  • 310 - "Somebody to Love"

    Solid solid season finale and solid season overall.
    Season 1 - A
    Season 2 - A+
    Season 3 - A-
    I really hope this isnt the last season. This is easily one of my favorite shows.
  • American Gods - 108 - Come to Jesus (No Book Spoilers)

    The whole episode we were reminded how Easter, an ageing symbol of spring had been long forgotten. I think aesthetically it would have worked so much better if we saw her wrinkles behind all her makeup and frills. She shouldn't have had her youth restored until she went full goddess at the end. Gillian I can understand, and the blurring effect would really work with that charachter - giving her a creepy, fake glossy feel. But she is a NEW god. Don't use that blur effect on an OLD god - you're mixing your metaphors. 

    It happens in Hollywood WAY more than we realize, on men and woman - but the human eye can pick it up when it's done poorly, or too much.

  • Last Movie You Saw & What Did you Think

    Re: Logan, do I need to have seen all of the Wolverine stuff to appreciate/understand? With all the Logan hype I feel it's a gap in my film knowledge that I need to fill, but I've never seen a single X-Men or Wolverine movie!
    Not at all. As long as you have a super basic understanding of who Professor X and Wolverine are, you'll be fine. Professor X is the leader of the X-men and ran a school for gifted mutants. He has vaguely defined mind powers. He's kind of a paraplegic jedi.

    Wolverine is the product of a lab experiment where superstrong metal was infused into his body. Because of this, he has regenerative powers and can make metal claws come out of his knuckles.

    That's all you need to know.
