I feel like that’s a YMMV thing, because Old Luke was the highlight for me.
It’s so depressing looking forward to seeing Dune so much but knowing deep inside the reality that the sequel is surely not happening.
Well, to her credit, Rowling did certainly transform YA literature. When I was growing up in the ‘80s, “Young Adult” novels tended to be very serious things, like S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders and Judy Blume’s Tiger Eyes. They were generally about all the ways your life could get screwed up between the ages of 12 and 21… Read more
It’s 2009 all over again. Republicans have lost the Presidency, the House, and the Senate and handed the new Democratic President and Democratic majorities a massively damaged country. Republicans will now do everything in their power to obstruct any meaningful solutions to help fix any of the problems we face and, if… Read more
The Daily Show did a round-up video of all the petty shit (mostly) coming from right-wing media and it was just sad. From the Peloton to Biden being sworn in ten minutes early to him not fixing the vaccination program (that previously didn’t exist) in his first couple days in office. Read more
This is just emblematic of capitalism wanting to get in the way of altruism. Will it harm theaters to do this? Yes, but by completely ignoring the problem and kicking the can down the road, they’ve now completely and compliantly allowed the entire industry into this model where they’re completely held hostage by… Read more
That’s a whole lot of snark considering we’re in the thick of a raging pandemic, particularly for a film that was already a grim, hard sell. I love movie theaters but the world has changed. It was already changing and hybrid releases were inevitable, this just hastened the change. I have no doubt we’ll still have… Read more
No, thank YOU. The fact that that was off the top of your head is amazing!
[Flaming Eye of Sauron thrashes as Barad-dûr crumbles and collapses after the destruction of the One Ring, in view of the Army of the West’s last stand at the Black Gate.]
In order to help the poor, you must give away enough of your money to become poor yourself is what I’m reading. So yeah I can see why someone might have a hard time running as a progressive.
A Boomer would have said pound sign.
4 kids was the dream back when my college BF and I were starting to plan our wedding. I still have names picked out for all four. But we broke up at age 22 and I chose to focus on growing as a human, rather than growing humans, that early in my life. I’d watched Idiocracy, I knew the statistics were against me (if I… Read more
I admit I don’t go to either Regal or AMC, but I do frequent Cinemark (or did before the hell times), and they always advertise their Classic Series, where they show 6 remastered movies every month. Stuff like Ghostbusters, Ferris Bueller, Casablanca, etc.
Would ya believe calculator typo? Totally my fault. Good catch.
I dunno, I think there’s a lot of good stuff online if you know where to look. The problem is the lack of human curation and the unrelenting faith in dumbass algorithms. It doesn’t help if you watch a lot of crap out of morbid curiosity. Garbage in, garbage out. But I’m also lazy about watching the “good” shows — I’m… Read more
