    Only thing I'm not sure about is what partner he was referring to who slipped and hit his head and died in his sleep from a brain bleed. Hercules died from heart disease(according to Wiki at least) and Powers is obviously still alive.

    I think he’s talking about S.D. Jones. They tagged briefly, and Jones passed from some kind of stroke-related brain bleed.

    I've watched Goodfellas a thousand times and never thought of this, but if the higher-ups in the Lucchesi family found out about Billy Batts getting killed, why didn't they whack out Jimmy too? And for that matter (if they knew he had something to do with it since Billy was last seen in his restaurant), Henry? 

    I thought about this on my last watch too. I’m pretty sure Paulie compromised with the Lucchesi family so it’d be one of his for one of theirs. They wanted satisfaction and were reasonably sure it was someone from Paulie’s outfit. Of the three, Tommy is clearly the easiest one to point the finger at for Batts, plus he’s the biggest liability. Jimmy is an earner and Henry hadn’t become unreliable yet.

    Would have liked to seen Austin do more comedy 

    “Uptight urbanite Jason Segal moves to the backwoods to finally write his novel and discovers his neighbor is a Stone Cold Steve Austin type” could absolutely have been a comedy that I watched on Netflix or Prime in the past decade and forgot every moment of as soon as it was over.

  4. Let’s get real, there’s a history of sexual sadism inside all-male locker rooms in sports in general, and it’s been notoriously bad in wrestling. Because it’s ultimately about power, the “ribs” like the eyebrow shaving seemed to overlap to the women who were abused while the sexual abuse aspects were often present in the ribs on the men.

    Superbad is really very wholesome. 

    My supremely genteel grandmother was one of those old people who would just show up at the movie theater and see whatever showtime was coming up soon, so she saw Superbad and enjoyed it. Of course, she also took me to both Kill Bills because I was underage and would watch the Candyman and Hannibal Lecter movies without batting an eye.
