  1. I was reading through this thread too quickly and thought you were talking about Darby O'Gill and the Little People.
  2. I think I've read that the Skrulls in general is a situation like Quicksilver where both Fox and Marvel can use them. The Super Skrull character, however, belongs to Fox.
  3. Yes. I think they got him back at the same time they got Punisher and Blade back.
  4. I'm not saying you're wrong, I just thought it was interesting. Since Walton Goggins is in his stable of actors now, and since he was so successful with adapting Elmore Leonard for Jackie Brown, I kind of wish Tarantino had directed an episode of Justified. He directed an episode of CSI, so why not? QT directing a scene between Olyphant and Goggins could have been awesome.
  5. I saw an interview with Tarantino where the interviewer asked him what he would say if someone told him that Jackie Brown was their favorite Tarantino movie. QT said that if he was being snotty he would say that person isn't a Tarantino fan, because it's the least Tarantino-like movie in his filmography.
  6. I was just about to mention this. I loved the movie. I'm ignoring some things I would normally nitpick because of nostalgia and excitement, but overall it was awesome. I have to say, though, I was super disappointed when the actors from The Raid showed up, I immediately thought we were about to get one of the coolest fight scenes in a Star Wars movie ever, and then... nothing. But, yeah, overall it was great. I can't wait to see what Rian Johnson does since I'm a big fan of his movies (especially Brick).
  7. I'm definitely more excited about Batman vs. Superman than I was a week ago, but I'm not sure where I stand on Suicide Squad. I think it looks good. I'm sure I'll see it in theaters and enjoy it. But the more I see of it, the more I am convinced it will be exactly like the Assault on Arkham animated movie -- and I'm not sure how I feel about that.
  8. Apparently the guy we saw in season one was just a random Drowned Priest. It wasn't actually Aeron Greyjoy, so we still haven't see him yet.
  9. I think the fact that Melisandre came across Thoros in the show and learned about how he resurrected Beric Dondarrion coupled with the fact that she just showed up at The Wall right before Jon Snow's stabbing makes it very possible that she will bring him back to life. Thoros said he never really, truly believed in the Red God and that he was at his lowest point. But he said the old words over the corpse of Dondarrion and he came back to life. You have to think Melisandre is in a similar place with how everything with Stannis went and how she apparently misread all of her visions and is responsible for the death of Shireen. But she can still say the words over Jon Snow's body, and when he comes back to life her faith can be renewed and she will have possibly saved the real Azor Ahai.
  10. I've seen people speculating online that Mack and Bobbi are secretly working for S.W.O.R.D. I noticed during Mack's rant how he specifically mentioned how he was fed up with all this "alien crap", so that could definitely be it.
  11. My thinking is that -- given his history -- Bogut probably won't be healthy for all of the playoffs. If he's hurt and misses a series, then the Warriors become very vulnerable. People don't talk enough about how important Bogut is to the way they want to play, and not just defensively. He allows them to play inside-out on offense and he's also a great passer. I just don't trust him to stay healthy, so I don't know if I can go all in on their chances to win it all even if they are my favorite team to watch this season.
  12. So... They just said on NBA TV that Rose isn't playing tonight and may be getting an MRI. Is he hurt again?
  13. I recently watched The Equalizer with Denzel, and I enjoyed it more than I thought it would. It got me to thinking, though. What are the best movies that have a badass unstoppable hero? We're seeing action movies like The Equalizer and the Taken movies lately, but what are some other examples? What movies have a hero who just runs through the opposition -- even when they get to the end of the movie they still just completely destroy whoever the big bad is? I also don't care about genre. It can be an old school action movie, revenge flick, superhero movie, western, etc. Just looking to get everyone's opinions on what some of the best examples of this are.
  14. You can't discredit Harden because he gets a lot of points from free throws. Drawing fouls is a skill -- one that he happens to be the best in the league at doing. He's been getting to the line like that consistently for a while now and he knocks them down. But really just look at the fact that Houston is 4th in the ridiculously loaded West right now, and a lot of that has been with Howard out. That's why I said Harden is having an MVP-type season. He has carried them and is having a really great statistical season, but they're also winning a lot. I really don't think best SG in the league is even debatable right now. Second best is where it gets interesting with Monta, Butler, Thompson, Wade (when healthy), etc.
  15. Monta is having a pretty good year so far, but let's not get crazy. Harden is the best SG in the league, and I don't think it's all that close. He is having a legit MVP-type season.
