no, i just thought the 3rd one was f—-ing epic. »
hey Rob - how bout a follow-up article about which of these had the best VHS covers? I've never seen any of these in full, but rented plenty of them based on the awesomely lurid marketing. »
my ex was an "alternative (to) medicine" practitioner. I can't say that's the reason for the divorce (if it was one of the reasons, it's relatively far down the list), but i don't miss making excuses for why it was okay for her to separate fools from their money. And i went through them all: Quantum woo, the… »
Agreed about the lines. But for all the reluctance towards straight-up men-in-tights in modern superhero movies, the Vision looks AMAZEBALLS. »
yeeeah, i guess it'll happen again, but i'm doubting it in the science fiction / fantasy genre world. Only because THERE, even if it would hit the heights of a Star TREK, it'll still pale in comparison to what happened w/ Star Wars.
The last time i felt like something came close to that sort of culturally pervasive… »
(calling it genre for the alien-abduction and demonic possession storylines)
I can't believe this show isn't better remembered. It was a parody of soap operas that very often veered into REAL soap opera territory, and did it more sincerely and more seriously than the source material.
it's also the show that caused my… »
THIS is the shizz that vegans should be focusing on. (i'm not one, for the record, but i am fairly sympathetic) This and animal welfare / husbandry (as opposed to 'rights'). The thought of humans (animals) eating other animals - so long as the other animals aren't shoved into itty-bitty pens and stuffed full of… »
HOW much of an MCU nerd am i? I'm losing my shit because this is 2 blocks from the hotel i stayed in in April. »
DC really dropped the ball (SHOCKER) by NOT doing a straight up hero / hero team up movie, instead jumping directly into Justice League Issue #0 with "Dawn of Justice".
doing a 2 hero Brave and the Bold movie would've differentiated them from the Avengers "full team" formula, and since they're SO hesitant to do… »
i'm waiting for the grimdark Kroft Superstars reboot from a studio hungry for some of those sweet "shared universe" $$$ »
the current broadcast TV model is OVER. Everyone knows it, and it's UGLY what people will do to make or keep a buck before it's all said and done.
i traffic commercials for a TV station. Glorified data entry, basically. Commercials are assigned to an advertiser's contract with an arbitrary, random "ISCI" code, decided… »
funny - i was just waxing clever on fb the other day about how some studio should reboot the Kroft Superstars lineup into a shared universe. Makes me happy i'm not the only olds around here. »
i've had times in the past, when i'm going through personal stuff - anxiety, depression, etc. - where Jedi-isms hit the spot (up-to and including the prequels, which i generally hate. But Qui Gon's "your focus determines your reality" has gotten me through some tough times)
when the REST of the world seems crazy,… »
I'm not the most seasoned traveler in the world - at all - but i'm gonna have to go with City Museum in St. Louis .Human habitrails like the ones pictured above cover the interior AND exterior. Repurposed and recycled materials cover the building, there's a school bus and AIRPLANE atop the roof (which you can… »
yeah, this was what popped into my head, too. Probably the earliest example of trope-subversion and expectation-bending... »
jesus, yes. I'd have better feelings about the human race overall if more people were talking about the fact that MM is the sort of one-note "funny man" who'd get tiresome drunken frat party. »
