  1. Fowler, let's leave elsalvaje "Everybody is an Uncle Tom who doesn't agree with my views on race" loco out of this, shall we? I mean, I agree the dude is a major league ass-hat, but he didn't even comment on my original post.
  2. Fences was...technically competent, at best...I guess. Viola Davis pretty much phoned in her performance and didn't really try to evolve from beyond the 2010 stage revival she starred in (and I was lucky enough to attend), Saniyya Sidney was pretty wooden, Jovan Adepo was okay in a one-dimensional "angry black teenager" role. Shot selection and staging were decent, but nothing ground breaking. I question Denzel's choice of camera filters but that falls as much on the cinematographer as Denzel. Hardly a "Best Director" worthy film, certainly nowhere near Dances With Wolves or Braveheart in terms of actors directing themselves.
  3. So after this movie bombs will he finally start work on Sherlock Holmes 3?
  4. http://ew.com/movies/2017/01/23/karen-gillan-defends-jumanji-costume/ LOL at Social Justice Warriors freaking out over Karen Gillan wearing a skimpy costume to get horny teenagers into movie theaters.
  5. Is there a reason Mike Tomlin was wearing a giant crucifix necklase during the game?
  6. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/10/world/australia/michael-chamberlain-dingo-baby.html?_r=0 As our Australian/New Zealand-based posters already know, MIchael Chamberlain, the father of baby Azaria who was kidnapped and killed by a Dingo in the Australian desert, died back on January 9th.
  7. Live By Night was a fucking mess. Kind of like David Lynch's Dune where giant chunks of the novel were glossed over in 30-second montages with narration.
  8. So all the Earwolf podcast archives past six months are now behind a paywall....
  9. CNN just pointed out that Obama ending the policy of automatically granting asylum to Cubans who sneak into the U.S. via land routes is going to severely affect MLB, as Cuban players will now have to prove they were political dissidents facing human rights abuses in Cuba, or else they'll get shipped back.
  10. Jesus Christ, they actually signed Rosie Lottalove. I guess we should set up a betting pool on how long it'll take her to accidentally cripple Blue Pants with her sloppy work. Might as well sign Mickie Knucles too, while you're at it. WTF is Vince's obsession with morbidly obese "monster" divas? Bertha Faye, Kharma... Dump Matsumoto and Aja Kong were the exceptions, not the rule.
  11. I watched WWE for the first time in a year last night on the HULU repeat of RAW, simply because I wanted to see Chris Jericho win a title belt. At one point, Roman Reigns Irish Whipped Jericho and Owens into opposite turnbuckles and this is what his move-set consisted of: - running clothesline into a corner - running clothesline into the opposite corner - Samoan Drop - clothesline - missed jumping punch - jumping punch That was Reigns' repetoire of moves. You go from Omega-Okada to Reigns' punching and kicking everyone and is it any wonder why he gets shit on. It's almost as if Misawa-Kobashi 1/3/03 never existed.
  12. For those too young to remember Gerard Jones was a fairly prominent comic book writer in the 80s and 90s. He made his name on independent comics like "The Trouble With Girls" and "The Comic Book Heroes," a 1985 coffee table book that presented the history of Marvel and DC from the Silver Age to the Shooter Era. He eventually became the writer of the post-Crisis "Green Lantern" and had a major hand in creating Malibu Comics' Ultra Verse line. Along the way he developed a number of deep friendships with members of the comics industry: Mark Waid, Mike Grell, Mark Evanier, Chris Claremont all counted him as a friend. It all fell apart in 1994, when he was fired off of Green Lantern for either refusing or being unable to kill off Hal Jordan and bring in Kyle Rayner. As the 90s became more grim 'n' gritty, Jones became more and more disillusioned until finally in 1996, he released an updated version of "The Comic Book Heroes" which was more a bitter, scathing indictment of the post-Dark Knight Returns, Image Era of comics then an updated history of the industry as a whole. After that, Jones pretty much became persona non grata at both Marvel and DC. He tried his hand at webcomics, but in the pre-Patreon era, there was little demand for t-shirts of "Custard the Trumpet Playing Dog" and Jones ended up eking out a living writing "Ranma 1/2" before even that dried up in 2001. Jones was friends with pretty much everyone who was involved in the comics industry in the 1980s, which is why everyone was on Twitter on Friday acting like he was framed, at least until reports of the actual evidence started leaking out on Saturday, then everyone suddenly got real quiet.
  13. My only New Year's wish for Marvel is that, with all the fan backlash against Clone Conspiracy, Dan Slott is finally tossed off the Spider books. Make Gerry Conway the head writer for a year or two as a "caretaker" and let him retcon the giant continuity snarls that Slott created: put Gwen and Ben back in the grave, reveal that the Black Cat running around and murdering people and acting like a crime lord was actually a malfunctioning Life Model Decoy and the real Felicia Hardy has been undercover for SHIELD in Europe or something, have Peter go back to being a freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle, make Mary Jane stop acting like a selfish b*tch towards Peter and return as his primary emotional support, make Dr. Octopus and others who learned Peter's secret identity forget it again. Also, bring back Sue Storm and Reed Richards, but "merge" Sue with her Ultimate version (gorgeous, single, and in her early twenties) and have her become Namor's primary love interest. And one last thing, ban John Romita Jr. from ever working for Marvel again as punishment for the gang-rape scene he drew in Kick Ass 2. Same goes for Mark Millar, obviously.
  14. To every business that closed today (Monday) "for the New Year's Holiday"... Fuck you. New Year's was yesterday. Some of us have errands to run and today is our only day off this week. Just because Xmas and New Year's are on a Sunday, doesn't mean you get to take an extra day off. It simply means you only get Sunday off, like every other week of the year.
  15. No, more like a massive hack/shutdown like the April 2011 PSN collapse.
