  1. You mean the ones that tear your arm out of the socket if they lose at chess? The fucking starship got pulled into the Death Star with a tractor beam and they had to shut it down in order to escape. What other choice did they have than to stick with the plan and by plan I mean the shit they made up as they went along?
  2. Eh, Han is in it for the money nearly the entire movie. It's only after Leia's guilt trip and Luke selflessly volunteering for the Death Star attack do we start to see flashes of genuine heroism. That shit on the Death Star is all about Han knowing that dead men can't spend money and that Leia is worthless to him if she's dead. No reward, no reimbursement to Jabba for the lost shipments. Day One Han would be a likeable but morally bankrupt dirtbag and it might've been great.
  3. Barbarian was totally great and so subversive. The marketing plan was tremendous. The trailers totally do not prepare you for what happens in Barbarian, unlike most trailers that pretty much encapsulate the entire film in under three minutes. I'm trying to cobble together a review that will get posted in the Secret Satan project thread.
  4. I will be sad when VtM: Bloodlines 2 inevitably breaks the record and becomes vaporware. I have moved past Denial and am now in the Acceptance stage of my grief.
  5. That is fucking crazy. How do they resolve that shit? Flashbacks?
  6. Dodging is probably still in my muscle memory. I could do it in my sleep. Dodge / Invis / Headshot.
  7. I hate Solo because it builds on the revised Greedo bullshit. Han was ruthless. It was Leia's love and Luke's courage that made him want to be a better man. If Solo had kept the Han Shot First vibe, it would have probably felt a lot grimier like Andor does and that would've been a far better movie. The first fifteen minutes of the first episode of Andor has the tone I wanted to see in a proper movie about Han Solo..
  8. At least you've been playing the entire time so there was no ring rust involved.
  9. You even unlocked the achievement for securing all of the subclasses! Better late than never.
  10. Same here and all of the manual gamma and warm color adjustments in the world could not compensate for the darkness.
  11. John hates the Horror thread. Movies about young homicidal cannibals in love must be mainstream.
  12. Yeah, the world is a better place for the nude musician stylings of Teresa Nervosa and Zia McCabe.
  13. Went up to JMU to visit my daughter for Friends & Family weekend and of course we went to a showing of Smile after dinner and the football game. Smile is not entirely bad, but it is the not so good version of It Follows sans creepy cinematography. It does not come out and say that the threat is demonic, but it has all of the tropes of a traditional demonic malevolence movie and if your monster is a demon, you may as well come out and say it's a demon and follow the rules of a classic possession movie. Smile tries to be an onryo, demonic possession, and Lovecraftian horror joint all rolled up into one and doesn't really do any of those genres exceptionally well, but that's not to say that Smile is completely worthless. I'll probably write up a more detailed review for the Secret Satan project.
  14. I posted Trailer 1 here around the first of the month. This looks like dumb fun. I think I may check it out.
  15. My assigned review is IN~! Bonus reviews are pending.
  16. Good on Ali not to follow the Judo guy to the ground. RIP, Inoki-san.
  17. Kingston going full rabid Kawada was totally great. The only thing missing was the Ganso Bomb on an official to draw a fine and suspension. I am totally down with an angle where Kingston has a 8-44 record because he's constantly getting DQed for excessive violence after the bell. Muta came out and I was twelve years old again. Then I saw the grey in his beard and regretfully advanced in time to my current age. For a minute I thought we were going to get the Shining Wizard, but Matthews blundered backwards into the Stinger DDT. Probably a good thing since it took Muta like twenty minutes to get to the ring. Is Julia Hart taking bumping advice from Darby Allin? Because she really should stop doing that shit before she ends up crippled. That Lights Out match was depressingly blood free. At least Starks took those bumps as if he already had the proper number of cortisone shots waiting for him backstage. I co-sign Jungle Boy having the best performance of the card.
  18. Matchmaking for Raids is a terrible idea for Raids and dungeons, especially with CrossPlay being a thing and lag and cross-communication making the simplest multiplayer events totally frustrating.
  19. Karn just seems to have an overdeveloped sense of justice and he may come around later on and figure out that Andor is on the right side. I think that Karn's subordinate, Mosk, is the guy we probably have to worry about, especially since the actor playing him is Alex Ferns who also played the gigantic douchebag antagonist, Trevor Morgan, on EastEnders. Pre-Mor Security does not fuck around. I love how no one in the history of Star Wars has ever set their blaster to Stun since the Troopers tasered Leia in A New Hope. Where was Tony Gilroy when Solo was being pitched. That movie probably would've been 10000000 times better if had been as grimy as Andor is. I want a Solo do-over with Gilroy at the helm.
  20. Andor is fucking great. Chief Hyne may be the best cop boss I have seen in recent memory on any show. He knew the security dudes that were trying to shake Cassian down were up to no good, so he set them up with a dignified end and did not even bother with an investigation since he realized the dudes had it coming and got killed trying to extort the wrong man.
  21. Sometimes the ads on this site point to some really cool shit. C.R.E.A.M - Macho Man - Hoodie | TeePublic
