I would watch Demented Batman and BadAss Superman go shopping for drapes all. day. long.
What results is a flashback to a true rarity: A happy moment in Constantine’s life. Six months before joining the Waverider, he met a young restaurant worker named Desmond and fell in love, setting down in New Orleans so they could move in together. But of course, that all ended in tragedy.
Every year the DC shows like to throw in things that make me say “woah how they get that character?” When Constantine said Neron I said oh shit out loud. Its another DC character I never expected to be in a tv show. I think I said it in AV Club, but I hope they cast someone great for him and not use cgi too much.
As much as I want to see Peele revive the Franchise, I don’t even know what Candyman *is* without Tony Todd. Who are you going to find like this??? I can’t think of any other black man working who has a voice like this that won’t break the budget for lozenges.
Well, she did say “oops...”
Don’t worry; one wave of her sonic screwdriver, and it’ll be good as new :-)
The first Predator is one of my favorite movies of all time. What I love is the fact that no one is or does anything stupid, for the most part. Dutch’s team are a bunch of badasses. But they aren’t bloodthirsty, they don’t kill for fun. They are a rescue/extraction team. Whatever arrogance they have comes from the… Read more
I dunno, I liked that they made the teens actual people with personalities and arcs rather than interchangable, color-coordinated cogs.
As a 36 year old man who loved the Power Rangers in my youth (“grew out of it” my Freshman year of HS), I was cautiously optimistic about the new movie, and while there are some things I was critical of (namely aesthetic things), there were times in the theater I was a kid again. Even aside from the nostalgia goggles,… Read more
Just *reading* your worst-case scenarios brings out my anxiety. I was certified open water when I was in college, and we did one deep dive in Pennekamp on a coast guard cutter that was sunk about 120 feet deep. It was the middle of the day but as black as night on the bottom of the ocean, and the sense of… Read more
My step-father was a scuba instructor and one of the first certifiedcave divers (his NACD ID was two digits long). He taught cave diving as well. In the Midwest, the best cave diving is in abandoned mines, so he did his training dives at Bon Terre mine in Missouri (an old lead mine). Read more
i’m an amateur diver & it’s so important not to take chances. i once went on an evening dive & although i had done all the calculations to be sure that i would be safe after enjoying a dive earlier in the day, i got an instant, pounding headache when i began to descend. i came up, took a break, tried again & bang -… Read more
Commented elsewhere, but I used to work with a guy who would dive and map unexplored cave systems for fun. He was absolutely brilliant, but he was also a completely different breed of human. Your list is a great sample of some of the stuff he used to talk about. Items 1,2, and 4 stand out. There are places on this… Read more
Pretty much everything you listed. Cave diving is super dangerous. It’s easy to get turned around in the dark, not even knowing which way is up, or get stuck in a squeeze and run out of air. Read more
