“Door Dash for bears.” Laughed out loud at that one. Blaine Capatch is one of the funniest people on the planet.
I guess I didn’t know that Be Kind, Rewind was at all divisive. I remember it as very funny and surprisingly sweet. I’ll find it and watch it again, because... I still think I’ll find it funny and sweet. I don’t get out much.
If he fails in the attempt to own an NFL team, is his next step game show host, then president? Just checking.
You gotta put a TJ Miller type in the middle of these sci-fi horror things, I know. I do wonder how long it’s going to be TJ Miller though.
I just love Jim Gaffigan. He puts a ton of work in to make his stuff look conversational and smooth, which it does, always - and you never see him struggling with that. He’s reliably funny, often hilarious, and when he veers off from “clean comedy” it’s subtle and all the more subversive.
My favorites, although Marvel took pains to note they were alternate chronologies, are Deathlok (I think Luther Manning is blown up in 1990) and Killraven, which I think begins in 2018 when Killraven escapes the Martian gladiator pits (the Martians came back in 2001, having figured out how not to die from the earth…
I went through a John Brunner phase after I first read Stand on Zanzibar in the late 70s. Shockwave Rider, The Jagged Orbit, and The Sheep Look Up, and a bunch of his shorter ones. What I love about his futures is that, rather than take one or two then current trends and extrapolate, he looked at everything going on.…
Stephen King’s not-so-great Mr. Mercedes trilogy is worth a watch, if only for the ways it’s improved upon the source material.
Thor and Valkyrie road trip, with Jane Foster Thor along for the ride...
One thing I’m curious about: Do these guys still get paid for working on said projects?
Probably it depends on the deal, but usually I would think they must. Although - Letterman once asked an actor (maybe Harrison Ford) who was getting big paychecks per movie: “Do you just get a check? Are you SURE you’re getting…
I wouldn’t mind if it was titled “Quiet...2 Quiet...”
That movie has been made enough. That and Spiderman, c’mon, Hollywood
Anyone who hasn’t seen “To Be Or Not To Be” needs to drop what they’re doing right now and watch it
Michael Crichton’s Rising Sun (1992) was a particularly not good book, but one of its alarmed-by-technology rants predicted that digital photography would get so good that soon it wouldn’t be admissible as evidence in court. (Or at least not sole evidence, without things like witness and forensic backups.) I think…
Pitt was so, so good in Snatch. I don’t know where he learned it or how long it took him, but that ridiculous accent of his? According to someone I know who lived in Ireland for years, that was authentic as hell. [And I liked it even before I heard that.]
Got away Scott free, must have been a polar bear./Great reference,wrong pole.
It’s obvious that the bears have developed a human level intelligence and are waging a war against humanity in order to enslave us.
The airborne delivered bear commando program was suspended by the CIA in ‘15; I call bullshit.
So what’s the line? You can’t be racist unless you say racist things to five people? Seven? Fifteen?
People voted for Trump counting on cruelty to non-whites being a feature. It was part of his platform
