Ha! Point taken, though I did mean smooth more like they look slick and sharply dressed.
The Brinkley story reached a weird apex in 2017, with there being two movies in development on it (one with Matt Damon attached, the other with Robert Downey Jr and Richard Linklater) - both based on different source material that had come out that same year (the former a book, Charlatan, and the latter an episode of… Read more
So admittedly, I only half watched it while doing other things. But I’ll say, B is probably where I’d put it too. I’m a sucker for monkeys, so the 2nd episode monkey stuff worked for me. The show never really quite approached that level of absurdity again though. I 100% missed some basic plot points (why is his wife… Read more
Easy way to earn some good will for the sequel, cast Middleditch as Tails.
Release the JK Simmons cut! The picture of him bulking up in the gym is practically a meme, can’t believe he did all that for the 2 minutes of screen time he ended up with.

There’s never any ambiguity about her being a piece of software or a tool, she is just straight… Read more
I remember that nutrigrain ad from back in the day! I shared it on many a message board in that pre-YouTube era (it wasn’t a real ad btw, just a gag, if you google turnpike films you’ll find some more of their gag ads).
I always wondered if the Nolan line “I’m not wearing hockey pads” was a shot at this script (where their Batman is wearing spray painted hockey pads).
