I’m an Android user but it always troubles me how many people I meet that say “Oh yeah Android is better because you don’t got to pay for anything. I got this app my brother installed that lets me watch any movie for free!” Read more

Iron Giant is just cameo’ing in everything. Must be all the alimony payments from his marriage that fell apart in the early 2010's.

You bring up a great point on Ixalan and something I’ve noticed while running Dungeons and Dragons games in that setting. While I love the idea of fighting vampire conquistadors, it’s a lot to cover them, the river folk, AND pirates! I’ve ran two campaigns in that setting and this is probably why each have really only Read more

I’m imagining the kids that aren’t satisfied with the bluetooth controllers will split responsibilities across different ends of the machine. It’s going to be beautiful chaos. They’re going to play terribly but get a kick out of it, save for the one older kid that’s shouting at them to stop blocking the screen. The Read more

I too want to see the adventures of cowboy/FBI agent JDM and his pet rat that he rescued from corporate overlords.

The ridiculous opening scrawl about CRISPR was all I needed to feel okay about the $15 I had dropped to see it in theaters. That, and the fact I just left a beer tasting event and was feeling pretty drunk.

Pacific Rim aside, my favorite Kaiju movie from the modern era is still Rampage. It’s fun, it’s dumb, and I can actually see what the monsters are doing as opposed to straining to seem them through the middle of rain, a blizzard, a dust storm, and underwater. The humans actually get fun stuff to do in the movie rather

I think this is part of why tabletop roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons are becoming increasingly popular. When you’re playing DnD you’re basically playing make believe; something that as an adult doesn’t happen very often. As a game master, I can make a whole world for my players to explore, who then show up Read more

The NYPD kept pulling this in New York last summer. Whether it was a bunch of people getting shoved onto the Brooklyn Bridge to spend the better part of the night there or folks walking around Prospect Park in broad daylight getting pushed into blocked off streets. It was some Battle of the Bastards from Game of

The “we don’t have solid numbers on how much they reduce the risk” is your answer. The CDC is still monitoring all this but doesn’t have enough data yet. As more time goes on we’ll likely get a better idea of what’s safe and what isn’t, like the update we’re getting today. Read more

The continuity Marvel has is really only good if executed correctly otherwise it’s just constrains your storytelling. It makes more sense to make a bunch of series and films people independently enjoy and then cross them over if need be. I much rather prefer a universe where someone can watch Discovery, Picard, or Lowe Read more

The original’s grasp on its title was extremely flimsy at best lol.

Reading this article reminds me a lot about growing up with parents that had very different (albeit not strong) religious viewpoints. My Dad is a “Christmas Catholic” that when I asked who god was at the age of five responded “He’s a big guy in the sky that created the world” (I distinctly remember him cleaning the Read more

My sense of scale is all screwed up by this. Is that a big cat or a small bear?!?

Less dramatic but my cat did charge at a cockroach that was racing at me from across the kitchen. Saw my life flash before my eyes. Read more

The self-reflective gut punch that came to me was when her dad brought in all the old sitcoms on DVD. Like previous to that I was wondering why the heck someone like Wanda would be so into classic sitcoms. And then I got reminded of what global media is and how we often take for granted the wealth of fun, escapist Read more
