John Oliver's crew just did more Investigative Journalism for that one show then ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, and CNN did in the entirety of the past 12 months.
I'm thinking more of Hellraiser: Revelations. Never heard of it — don't feel bad? Doug Bradley — fucking Pinhead himself — only knew it was happening about ten days before production was due to start. He passed, and he really seemed upset by that. I'm certainly not going to defend the Hellraiser franchise beyond… Read more
Call me when the fan film of LEGO reproductions of dead celebrities as gender-swapped, steampunk Disney princesses re-gender-swapped as super heroes is ready.
And may God bless us all.
Yeah, even though Highlander is a really open-ended concept, I can understand keeping one of the MacLeods as the protagonist, if only because the title is nonsense otherwise. But why are the Kurgan and the plot of the first film so important to a reboot? If they want to leave it open for sequels—and why else would you…
HIGHLANDER: There Has Been Only One!
I rather liked how in the recent X-Men movie, there was really no reference to the fact that he is a dwarf, and it had no particular bearing on his character (unless you wanted to read stuff into it yourself). It must be annoying to so often be cast in novelty parts based on his height.
The Dark Energy one is probably the worst offender on the list, if only because it was the entire setup and explanation of why the reapers were doing what they were doing. Instead of getting the stupid "lol organics and synthetics never get a long!" the reapers wiped out civilizations because the continued use of the… Read more
tl;dr "We almost lost the rights and didn't want people to make money off of something that we're sitting on. If we're not going to do anything with it, we're scared that someone else will."
This ignores the many practical advantages mirrors have, such as the fact that they use no electricity, still work if they crack, cost very little to produce and don't require any rare earth elements, etc. Read more
In the modern series, he doesn't explicitly claim to be one very often, but in the 60s and 70s? Constantly. He was actually meant to be a GOOD example of one, in the British TV/Film Trope mode of the Scientific Hero. But he was always more about serendipity than hard science.
Prosecute swatters as attempted murder.
He's Neil Fucking Armstrong, first man to walk on the moon. If he wants these things, they're his. Good chance they'd just have been left on the moon anyway. I'm sure "on loan" means they'll be at the National Air and Space Museum forever. Either way, he got to cherish them as his own private mementos for the… Read more
$35,000 for a bed? 35% of American households live on that (or less) each year. That the company is able to sell $35K beds but not $3K ones tells you pretty much everything you need to know about their customer base. That they're modern America's version of royalty, not filthy peasants like the rest of us. The… Read more
This is straight up lifestyles of the rich and famous, except it's pretending that these people aren't an exclusive, pampered and privileged elite? These are not fucking residential homes, they are palatial estates. Eat the rich etc etc etc
