Rick and Carl and the Andy Griffith theme, funny idea there-
There are a great many things that make Black Panther a Marvel film like no other, but one of the most striking things about it is how thoroughly familiar the world of Wakanda feels. Not in the sense that you’ve seen anything like it before (trust me, you haven’t), but rather that seeing it feels like coming home.
It’s not about how many parts there are, it’s about whether there is a good reason for it or not. Harry Potter did it because they didn’t want people to sit through a 5 hour film so they split a book that takes 11 hours to read on average. The Hobbit did it because they thought making a 4 hour book into a trilogy with…
Please show me this pose that shows up in every other issue where Peter Parker is showing off his giant ass.
Because 100 paragraphs is insanely too long for anyone to reasonably be expected to read especially on a Monday afternoon...
Holy crap was there a lot of television this year. While we’ve already covered our best and worst shows of the year, there were many specific moments in these series, as well as memorable highlights from shows that didn’t make it into our Top 10 list, that we’d be remiss to not highlight—or remind you of how awful…
Clarification: Daryl’s attacking Negan after Abraham’s death is what lead to Glenn’s death.
...because ‘meh’ is the same as openly contemptuous, and being ambivalent towards or even contemptuous of Blade Runner is the same as being openly contemptuous of geek culture? Well, I guess I better turn in my geek card (and throw away all my Arthur C Clarke books and delete my saved episodes of Humans) and refrain…
It’s important to have a geek on board for technical expertise etc., but a lot of insight comes from those that didn’t grow up geeks or weren’t already bias toward the same conclusion. Outside perspective is a good thing to have!
How DARE they give their thoughts on a movie!
Yeah, what audiences want out of a movie has changed drastically since Blade Runner was made. Look at horror movies from the ‘70s and early-mid ‘80s versus horror movies in the ‘90s. Or even action films: No way the original Vanishing Point would have been made into a wide release film by the time the TV movie remake…
Can you be more specific? I don’t feel like this indicates that Beth and Charles don’t like science fiction, or that they despise fans of science fiction. I think they just don’t like Blade Runner. That’s perfectly fine; I consider myself a fan of science fiction and I think some Dr. Who is garbage.
I am imagining you sitting in an office interviewing people about turtles.
Is this a younger person thing? It’s a slow movie. With a slow burn. A lot of movies from the 80s were that way, and I think if you grew up watching more recent movies your attention span might not allow you to sit still to really take in the view..if you think Bladerunner was boring, try watching Star Trek: The…
Germain is still traumatized from the crash of his Lego Millenium Falcon, so we need to cut him some slack on these minor details.
I starred then unstarred. Didn’t want to be the one that took away 69 stars.
I still think Theon unknowingly finger-banging his sister while riding a horse back in Season 2 is still my favorite incest in the show.
Don’t forget the endless “X inches of snow” jokes.
My favorite joke I’ve seen so far:
