I’m not ready for this final season! My favorite is definitely the solution to the trolley problem. When he stops her and says, “Hey, guess what? I just solved the trolley problem.” my eyes just teared up so much. Read more

A tear wouldn’t “bubble off” either, though. It’d just cling to the eye/face due to surface tension until it was wiped off.

After reading a few opinions on either side, I still think I’m going to go in without having seen the original.  As some people said, a lot of people have already seen it (I’m not sure why I never did.  Just wasn’t as aware of it as a kid for some reason, then never got around to it later), and you know the studio was Read more

Assignment accepted.  Looking forward to tackling it with a fairly blank slate, then going back and checking out the original after the fact.

The one and only time I subscribe, for the Lord of the Rings crate, was back in November I believe. Still waiting... :/

I subbed to the LootWear for Her sub in March or April (because they were advertising a limited edition Dark Phoenix kimono) and haven’t gotten any (that’s 5 boxes....). I finally cancelled my subscription like 3 weeks ago because I’m tired of the crap. They were screwing around when they had the MineChest too.

There have been a lot of repeat items and tons of delays. But I got an email saying that they had been sold and purchased...

I finally bowed out after they repeatedly failed to ship the second Star Trek box and eventually delivered subpar crap that was clearly last minute replacements. Read more

I cancelled my sub in May, right after the awful nemesis box - there were several duplicated items, they didn’t even have their guaranteed 1 shirt per box in the last crate.

It felt like a giant “Fuck you” to their fanbase.

I basically only subscribed because paying $12 per month for a decent graphic tee was a pretty Read more

I was literally thinking: “damn, where the hell is my D&D lootcrate?”... it’s the only one I ever purchased from them and nearly 2 months late :/ Read more

They keep sending me boxes even though I stopped subscribing and kept charging me for them. Unbelievable.

Loot Crate just charged my credit card last week and still owes me 3 boxes knowing this was coming.  Read more

Hey, if you like this show, make sure that you watch Aggretsuko. They feel very much like cultural counterparts - they’re both about young adult women . . . animals wrestling with existential dread.

And if Aggretsuko doesn’t get a third season, I’ll fling myself into the sea.

I’m sure there were some other concerns as well - like, Henry Cavill is a movie star. Does he plan to be in a TV series for the long haul (okay, it’s Netflix, so 3 seasons)? He’s the star so replacing him would not exactly be easy. I’m sure he has a contract that says like hey you wanted this role, you absolutely must Read more

For what it’s worth, one of the more-involved people other than the Dassani brothers was Amin Matalqa, who has a significant history in Jordanian cinema. (His film Captain Abu Raed was the nation’s first submission for Oscar consideration. It’s quite good, if you want to check it out.) He directed two of the five Read more

She survives because they had no idea how to keep the show going once they got past the novel’s story. Everything has consequences ,then suddenly they don’t. Even from episode to episode, the events of the previous episode don’t matter. She openly defies Aunt Lydia in front of a group of commanders and...nothing. The Read more
