For me, I’m not sure if it was the original trilogy that clued me into Leia as much as it was Force Awakens. I’d seen a recent Carrie Fisher - and Billie Lourd elsewhere, which probably helped - so I knew that couldn’t have possibly been her. Hadn’t seen Cushing in a while, for...understandably good reason haha I also Read more

So was I the only person who totally didn’t even notice that Tarkin was CGI? Sure, logically, when I thought about it later I realized, “Wait, Peter Cushing is looooong dead, that must have been CGI,” but in the moment it blended in perfectly. For the record, I noticed with Leia immediately, but I’ll grant that’s more Read more

Not OP, but I’m ok with new playable characters in fighting games as DLC. Now, when a company releases a game and then there are 3 or 4 characters that are available on day 1, that’s bullshit, obviously this is already on the disc. But a few months later, or steadily over the life of the game? That I’m mostly good Read more

Haha that’s also very true. I definitely didn’t mean that obsessing over the how isn’t fun, common or worthwhile too, I know I do it and there’s something to be said for trying to figure out how “the machine” works. Depending on how well a show/comic/film/book/game etc pulls off its execution, we’re more or less Read more

For me, this seeming contradiction is ok, and here’s why: ultimately, even in a story about a legal case, “Why isn’t Matt Murdock compelled to appear in the courtroom” isn’t really a big/deep question with larger personal implications as much as it is a detail to advance the plot. When people dismiss the inherent Read more

Now that I think about it, I just might have seen all three of those examples you mentioned - I’ve definitely heard that Dragonheart score a million times - but clearly none of them left a particularly strong impression, as I don’t remember any of them that well. Read more

It’s funny you say that, because I know for myself - and I’d suspect many other viewers - the only films I’d seen Thewlis in are the Harry Potter ones, where he played the pretty much universally beloved Professor Lupin. So I definitely didn’t automatically associate him with being a bad guy. Read more

I’ll actually somewhat defend the origin repetition up to this point; we’re on a pretty nerd-centric site and probably tend to talk with other pretty detailed fans. But there are a LOT of people who either a) easily forget these things or b) are under 15ish and legitimately haven’t seen the origins portrayed on Read more

That comparison really made me stop and think for a bit, as while I really enjoyed and still defend the way Lost ended, I have been...rather uncharitable, to put it lightly, towards the RTD finales, specifically the S3 Master trilogy, Stolen Earth/Journey’s End and The End of Time, mostly because I felt like most of Read more

I mean, it’s been 7 straight years now. How many more years does LeBron have to roll over the East before it seems like nobody else there has a chance either? He’s played in a whopping THREE games where his team faced elimination throughout the Eastern Conference playoffs over those seven years, and none since 2013. Read more

Oh please. I suppose when the only thing that stopped the Bulls from winning likely a decade’s worth of titles was Jordan retiring, twice, things felt really competitive, and when the Lakers threepeated or the Heat won two straight there was this level of whiny hand-wringing. And I guess it’s great for basketball Read more

That’s true, though it also seems fair to point out that neither the Warriors nor the Cavaliers really “tanked” in the sense that it was their plan to suck for years and end up with great players. They were just horribly run organizations for years - if not decades - on end who finally stumbled into competent Read more

Fair, though is it really that much better to have a constant “Hey, maybe this time it’ll be different” only to find out, “Nope, it’s not” for literally over a decade? Those Celtics won 11 of 13 titles, including 8 straight, and made the Finals one of those other two years. We talk about LeBron dominating the East Read more

Is EA ever going to do anything with the Burnout series they’ve just left to die? This will be the tenth multiplatform Need for Speed game (ninth if you don’t want to count NFS: Nitro) released since Burnout Paradise came out and all we’ve gotten was one downloadable spin-off. I can’t be the only person who Read more

Echoing everyone else here, Binding of Isaac is fantastic. It’s on a very, very small list of games I have on multiple platforms, as it’s probably the game I’ve spent the most time playing on PS4 and also gets more time on my 3DS than Pokemon Sun or Smash Bros. I simply can’t get enough of discovering new items and Read more

I’m not OP, but I think they meant hoping in some year FIFA adds actual women’s leagues, like the NWSL, in career mode and teams to play with. I’d definitely appreciate it, and it would probably allow for more national teams too. That’s how I took it, at least.

I think a lot of the problems people have with said criticism come because I don’t think think I’ve seen a single criticism of Kaepernick’s actions that then also addresses why he sat. The why is very important here, and if someone’s going to criticize him sitting because of that issue, I’d like to hear at least an Read more

Not OP, but I think they’re related. I think he didn’t get a shot because he was washed up, but had the domestic violence not occurred, he probably still gets signed somewhere, at least as a backup or on a practice squad. I think the PR nightmare he would’ve presented, when combined with his diminishing skills, was Read more
