  • 205 - "Rebecca"

    I am going to guess:

    The brothers' dad knew where the $14k went and couldn't tell Chuck, wasn't quite the saint Chuck makes him out to be, and Jimmy knows the real story but has kept his pact with his dead father.
  • 203 - Virtù e Fortuna

    I think Bernard transferred the file to himself. It explains the shakiness and why Charlotte Hale seems almost playfully annoyed with Bernard in the presumed present timeline- because looks like she got away with Abernathy but the information was no longer there and it keeps eluding her.

    Is Bernard shaky because he needs more brain juice, or did he download Abernathy’s secret hidden programing?

  • Goddammit, Louis.

    I’m waiting for Plantation World. 

    It seems that in the future, white people are really jonesing to get back to their colonizer ways.

  • Article on Solo and dark screenings - don’t blame the cinematographer

    No, you can blame the theater.  I am sure the cinematographer didn't make a mistake and had the correct calibration targets when he made the film. I don't think the cinematographers need to handicap themselves because movie theaters can't be bothered to get their projection in spec.

    Red Letter Media complained about the darkness too. That was the one part of their review that annoyed me, because I think they should know better about projection issues these days. Then again, maybe they'd still say that if they saw it on a good screen. (Or maybe they did see it on a good screen, but you'd think they'd say that.)
    But if you see every movie in the same theater and one movie in particular stands out for being too dark or muddy or whatever, you can't really blame that theater, regardless of maintenance.  Like, I've heard a LOT of people say Solo was too dark.  Never heard people saying that about any other movies in such volume.

    I’d probably go with Breaking Bad Season 4.

    Disney is a business. 

    TFA - Estimates put profits north of $750 million

    RO - Estimates put profits at $319 million

    TLJ - Estimates put profits at $417 million

    Even if Solo loses money or barely breaks even, that's a pretty damn good track record. Disney's only concern here is making as much money as possible. Why would they take a risk when, thus far, they've already made well over a billion dollars in profit on this franchise? 
    The problem is that Disney has a major property (Marvel) that have numbers that look like the reverse of these.

     Positioning the people behind Star Wars as the evil Empire that need to be taken down? Calling for a woman who has overseen four films, three of which have been massive critical and commercial successes, to be sacked because you personally didn't like them? I don't understand it anymore. I mean, I get it, I like the films as they are now, so it's not like I'm going to have much to complain about, but I have to believe I wouldn't be acting like this even if I hated them.
    I think the big DC fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's head for a while.
  • Sharp Objects Ep. 2 - "Dirt" - No Book Spoilers!

    Camille could be acting.  Though you'd think in such a busy body town that people would know she had ben pregnant, unless she "went away" for treatment, supposedly for something else, at a residential facility at some point in her youth.

    I don't buy that Amma is Camille's daughter.  You'd think that she would know if Amma were her daughter or not, and there is no recognition at all of anything other than a distanced half-sister relationship.
