  1. Beginning to think that Eobard Thawne might be a habitual line-stepper.
  2. I may need to do the math on this, but I have a theory. Everyone keeps asking the logical question of why Leia doesn't remember Obi-Wan in ANH, but, does she ever actually meet Obi-Wan, or just "Ben"? I'm beginning to wonder if she ever actually hears his real name.
  3. I did too. First 10 minutes were peak Umbrella Academy insanity. Luther had the best line delivery in the history of the show with "Here you go. It's your ass"
  4. They used the Respeecher gimmick combined with Hayden's line reads. I don't think Jones ever entered the booth.
  5. As a series, I thought this had a few dips, but feel like it finished strong with the last two episodes. For a show that threatened to create some plotholes, it actually ended up creating some important context to some original trilogy stuff. Big fan of them actually explaining Obi-Wan calling him "Darth" in ANH, and everything in that scene was excellent.
  6. This is absolutely the best season in years. Probably since The Thinker season tbh. Look, I'd eat a shoe is Candace Patton told me to, but her being absent from the show has been a huge help tbh.
  7. I have to admit that I thought this movie was hilarious twenty years ago. I've also not watched it since 2002, and I can't imagine it holding up. I *do* still use the line "I guess that's why they call 'em nuts".
  8. I've heard that it is still a go. No way it's worse than Gotham Knights.
  9. I always assumed him being a Green Lantern factored into the creative plans for Superman & Lois, at least in the beginning. If anything, David Ramsay's show getting picked up may have changed the plans.
  10. Flash paid off the Diggle/Green Lantern angle, and pal, it stunk.
  11. I have no problem with Vader doing that, since it was established early on that he had Yoda levels of power. Add to that decades of training under Obi-Wan AND Palpatine, and it's way less offensive than someone like Rey doing it.
  12. I do think Brunson has peaked, but I remain confident that this peak will go for a few more seasons. Your mileage may vary as to whether his current output is worth $18mil, though. Unless a much bigger fish like Lavine is coming along, I think you have to pay him. To me he's a $15mil guy, but I have few doubts that Cuban pays him close to what he wants. Also, I'd be stunned if one of Bertans, Dinwiddie or Hardaway aren't traded before the season starts.
  13. That Vader/Reva fight was killer, and I thought it showed the full scope of Vader's power more than anything else in the canon. It reminded me of the fight at the end of Fallen Order, because you are conditioned to think that these characters have some higher level of ability, only to have Vader dispatch them with ease. The Obi-Wan & Anakin scene was excellent too, and it was great to see some actual teaching moments between the two.
  14. I'm actually planning to buy a physical copy when they drop, which is a practice I save for a few movies at this point.
  15. Hoping the Mavs bring back the trash bag jersey.
  16. If DC didn't consider it more of an upscale project, Superman & Lois would probably be gone too, since I imagine the budget is high. The HBO Max connection is a real parachute for that and Stargirl.
  17. Given that the Mike/Will/Jonathan crew got zero screen time in episode 7, I suspect we open the next episode with them finding the lab and getting Eleven out.
  18. Once again, Ewan McGregor is trying to carry a lesser Star Wars entry on his back. He has been good as always, but the total disregard for continuity in this show is frustrating. There are things in this that I like, and the skeleton of a good show is there, but the absence of Filoni being there to keep things in check is glaring.
  19. I put over this film earlier in the thread, but I'll double down on this being the most rewarding 3 hours I have spent watching a movie in a long time. I've been talking to a girl from India the last couple of months, and she did a good job of helping me understand why this movie was such a big deal, and knowing what goes on with Indian cinema in general. Seriously, watch RRR you guys.
  20. I love how they set it up too, because you fully expect him to get his shit rocked, and then he......doesn't???
  21. I'll never forgive him for getting "Pass the Dutchie" stuck in my head. Ok, so are we going to talk about Murray being the reverse Steve and kicking everyone's ass?
  22. Am I nuts, or did they blend James Earl Jones' and Hayden's voice together? I feel like they did something like that in Rebels too, but the line delivery felt way more "Anakin" than "Vader". Even some of Hayden's inflections were there. I found the Zach Braff cameo to be pretty funny since he doesn't give a single shit about Star Wars, and Donald Faison is obsessed with it. You know Donald is going to be hot about it lol.
  23. The new characters work, but I'm also a big fan of how well the Duffers play with the pairings each season. They are smart to not move Dustin and Steve from each other, and I really dig the Nancy/Robin pairing this season.
