Los Ingobernables DVDVR (11/11)



  1. LZ Granderson is leaving ESPN after 17 years. His exit post looks back on his career and includes a couple anecdotes regarding mistreatment he's received as a black gay man at ESPN: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/more-sports/lz-granderson-leaves-espn-after-17-years-“espn-is-not-the-same-company-it-was-when-i-started-and-im-not-the-same-man”/ar-AAMTTGI?li=BBnb7Kz
  2. Well, Apple IIe and IIGS games in my case but, yes, the Epyx ones. I liked all of the events but mainly Hot Dog and Biathlon.
  3. Yeah, I agree. I guess Winter Games worked well for pretty much every event. Maybe Summer Games, too, but I'd have to think about it. Most of them throw in some stuff that they have no idea how to do right (pole vault or high jump or something) and then make it way too complicated and just mess everything up.
  4. Hey, at least she's not actively defending torture anymore.

    Hey, it worked for Herb Brooks...

    Good thing it wasn't Kenny Golladay that was injured.
  7. Not a photo but a tidbit nonetheless: I live in a ranch-style home. It's an older one and the A/C is not exactly balanced. If the upstairs is comfortable, the basement is freezing. Since we use the basement a lot (my wife & I live down there), we tend to keep the upstairs a little warmer (thermostat is currently on 76). I mention all this as backstory to explain why I use a box fan all day, every day, when I'm working (I work from home). Anyway, my black lab has figured out how to adjust the fan so it blows directly on him. I've got a big round one that tilts. And, darn near every day, I'll be working and suddenly notice "dang, it's warm in here". I'll look over and there he is, having bumped the fan - intentionally - so it points down and blows directly on him as he lays on the floor with me. If it was once or twice, I'd say maybe not intentional. It's been 40 or 50 times, at least, now.

    Took me about 15 replays to figure out what the heck was going on but, yeah, Ibe is out of line there. Can't be going for killshots on your own teammates. WTF.
  9. Jed Hoyer: Bryant, Rizzo & Baez are all big fat liars about wanting to stay in Chicago! https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/jed-hoyer-threw-baez-bryant-and-rizzo-under-the-bus-after-trading-them/ar-AAMRcad?li=BBnb7Kz
  10. And the comments on the Butler, ScarJo, Stone, and Blunt stories are almost all the same - people ripping the actors for being "greedy". As opposed to the company...
  11. Some more details: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/business/business-news/gerard-butler-sues-olympus-has-fallen-1234990987/ Apparently the producers are doing all kinds of shady nonsense with their books.
  12. Mariners "fans" keeping it classy as they go after Erik Swanson's wife: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/mariners-erik-swanson-pleads-with-fans-to-stop-threatening-wife-after-blown-lead/ar-AAMPg35?li=BBnbfcL
  13. Seems like intentionally throwing a bat into the stands should be a pretty big no-no, regardless of the outcome of said action.
  14. A trio of movies I've watched the last few days: The Bounty Hunter - Gerard Butler is a former cop now bounty hunter who is sent to bring in... his ex-wife (Jennifer Aniston). Implausible hijinks ensue. This movie is not good but it's perfectly fine for what it aims to be - a brainless comedy carried by its two leads. 5/10. No Way Out - Kevin Costner is Commander Tom Farrell, a Naval hero assigned to be a liaison for the Secretary of Defense (Gene Hackman). Farrell is involved with a woman (Sean Young) who is also involved with Hackman's character. Hackman kills her in a jealous rage and Costner is tasked with running the investigation/coverup. What follows is a decent thriller marred by a stupid ending that really makes not much sense. This is very much an 80s movie in construction - the look, the sound, everything is very much of the decade. Good movie, higher rating if not for the (IMHO) bad ending. 6/10. Me and Earl and the Dying Girl - Greg is a high school senior just trying to get through his final year. Earl is his best friend and movie making partner. When a friend of Greg's mom tells her that her (the friend's) daughter has been diagnosed with leukemia, Greg's mom tells him to go over and make nice with the girl under the assumption she can use the company. Greg does so reluctantly but he continues going over and a bond is eventually formed. What follows is a sweet story of friendship. There's a lot of cliche here but it still works. The movie is carried by its three young leads. Greg (Thomas Mann) and Rachel (Olivia Cooke) are particularly great. Reviews on IMDB praise the movie for being realistic and having great adult characters. Ehhhh...not so much. The teens are pretty realistic and the dialogue is realistic (mostly) but the adults are terrible. The history teacher is yet another ridiculous "cool teacher". Greg's parents are over-the-top weird and quirky. Rachel's mom (Molly Shannon) is alright but a little creepy as she seems to be hitting on Greg. This is a serious drama with a lot of laughs. Particularly funny are the movies that Greg & Earl make - they take classic movies and alter the titles (i.e. "A Box of Lips, Wow" for "Apocalypse Now" or "9:28 AM Cowboy" for "Midnight Cowboy") and then make a movie from that title. The titles are funny for sure. This is another one hurt by the ending, IMHO - the very, very last bit with Greg applying for college doesn't work for me and we never really see the final movie he & Earl were working on. Overall, this is a good movie though. 7/10.
