  • Need help!! Just got out and loved it, but drank a ton of water at lunch during the movie. Ran out when he meets the girl underground and got back when he leaves her holding the baby. What did I miss?
  • @A_Ron_Hubbard - I hope you and @Jim don't look at it as "failure." Been divorced. Been laid off. You tried an experiment, and it didn't work. If you're lucky, you learned something from it and can move forward. Even though I am just one listener, …
  • I'm only on Ep2, so I have only skimmed some of these posts. I like the story so far (it is a lot of high-fantasy names to process), but the show needs a $$ injection. SFX, costumes, settings, lighting, etc. When I saw the devil in Ep2, I thought th…
  • It sucks that it worked out that way. After seeing a run of music industry biopics recently, I feel like at least this part of show business is based in reality. I have a friend who tried to start an internet-comedy thing with some former Comedy Cen…
  • @mft9186 I enjoyed it, too.  It should be obvious that it’s derivative of Taxi Driver to people bc Deniro is in the movie. But I bet most millennials and younger haven’t seen Taxi Driver. They probably haven’t seen Fallen Down.  I thought the perfor…
  • @bizmarkiefader - Finished Jedi Fallen Order last night. Agree, it is better than the plot of the new trilogy. Even though it takes place before ANH, they could have adapted that story to come after TLJ. 
  • Just saw Rocketman. Was a bit disappointed. It wasn’t bad, but I had high expectations. I was expecting a typical bio pic, but parts are like a musical, which broke me out of the story. And I don’t think his story was that compelling, as great an en…
  • And if you’re awake after the surgery, it’ll feel like someone poured acid in your eyes. 
  • Had LASIK when I was 29. Had worn glasses / contacts since I was 5 due to severe astigmatism. I forget what my vision was, but I couldn’t make out the top line on the eye chart.  At the time, it was the best thing I had done. Went to a top quality p…
  • @Dee He keeps popping up. And I’ve seen him so often I forgot he’s British. I’m watching The Irishman, thinking he and Bobby Cannavale are the next generation of great American actors. 
  • Stephen Graham Snatch The Irishman Boardwalk Empire Gangs of New York To name a few...Always great, usually very different roles. 
  • JaimieT said: Murderbear said: 1917 is made to be one long continuous shot. My guess is that it will be better directed than Joker, an okay film.   Weirdly I want to see it less now. That sounds... horrible.  That can't be. But e…

  • I have also read (unverified) that the rockets used yesterday were older rockets that are easily detected by US defense systems. Supposedly, Iran used less modern equipment knowing that the US/Iraqis would have time to evacuate the base. I am only h…

  • For All Mankind has been pretty good. It's basically Man in the High Castle + Mad Men + Apollo 13. I would say it's a solid B show.
  • I rewatched IV and I with my kids, to get their takes. They loved them both, but are still waiting for BB-8 to show up. My own perspective on IV is largely unchanged. Lots of action, good world-building, lots of mystery. Some questionable things her…

  • @Teresa from Concord - The story was supposed to be that Lando had a daughter at some point that was lost or kidnapped. It wasn't necessarily Jannah, but it wasn't not Jannah. He was inquiring to find out. Hinted at in the Visual Dictionary and expl…
  • What is the premise? I heard mixed reviews, but my wife was interested in watching it.
  • 50 min into the podcast...a couple of points I think maybe missed.  1. The Mastermind’s OG purpose was to make the world a safe place for real Elliot. To this extent, Elliot was wearing a mask and we saw his superhero side in his drawings. Somewhat …
  • @Dee, It appears to be, but that title doesn't mean anything to me. My wife is well-read, so she might like it. I was just floored at the number of responses to it in HBO's twitter. It was like every other response. It got cancelled last month, so …
  • awookiee said: And this is the exact reason Amazon fucked up big time by releasing it all at once. There was 9 days of discussions about the new season and now there's been a 7 day gap since the last message.  I agree with you, but I also …

  • This is hope for the franchise. The last two episodes were great. 
  • A) Hatorian’s original post is spot on about the problem with The New Trilogy (Kathleen Kennedy’s approach) I imagine Disney remade A New Hope as TFA bc they want a new, younger audience (I mean market for new toys...my toddlers know R2, but they …
  • I will stick to there being crap in everyone of the films that doesn’t pass the sniff test, but bc most of us have watched them since we were kids, we’ve come to overlook those flaws. 
  • I wrote a whole long paragraph and it was wiped out by the forum problem.  Short answer is it’s worth finishing and rewatching. I have it among top shows of all time with Breaking Bad, The Wire, and Mad Men.   
  • LOST Mr Robot was pretty good. So was The Night Of. Game of Thrones was awesome. And technically, BSG’s pilot was the mini-series, which was amazing.
