You could pick any one out of a dozen or so examples from The Americans, which uses licensed music better than any other tv show in history. My pick would be “Brothers in Arms” from the same episode.

A really underrated movie. A great piece of work by William Friedkin, whose directing career is an absolute enigma to me. He did direct some episodes of CSI as well.

A local theater ran Emmet Otter around Christmas 2 years ago, and my wife and I went to see it. It is arguably my favorite theater going experience of my life. As a young child when it first released, it was a Christmas tradition for me, so seeing it on the big screen was really special to me.

They could do the game during the two year gap between ME1 and ME2, which had the Andromeda Initiative in development (since the ships leave prior to ME3, IIRC) and everyone trying to pick up the pieces after the Reaper attack at the Citadel. Liara could be on the planet you visit where you find the wreck of the Read more

Probably going to finish my No Guns playthrough of Fallout 4. Melee and throwables/mines only on Very Hard. Melee is absurd if you plan out everything in advance and prioritize specific perks, but I didn’t want to do that and let it be a bit more organic. Of course, I still did a lot of the same things I would have Read more

Yeah, endings are not King’s strong point at all. A perfect, more recent example is 11/22/63, which was terrific until the last 1/4 or so. Read more

The story (from Perrette) is that Harmon brought his dog to set, and it attacked a crew member, who needed stitches from whatever injuries he sustained. Harmon didn’t think it was a big deal and continued to bring the dog, which Perrette took exception to, and she reported it to higher ups. Read more

My wife and I just watched it over the weekend, and it was still a fun way to spend an hour and a half. As others have noted, nothing really groundbreaking, but a relatively fast-paced comedy that has some warmth to it, but not enough to make it overly or cheesy or anything. Read more

Harding was probably my favorite part of Inquisition. I loved her reports and commentary.

That, and then the pause and “nah, it was dumber than that” line are perfect.

We started going through the process of looking for/buying a house last Summer, and my wife started watching HGTV stuff pretty frequently, and I watched some with her. Over time, we started watching more, eventually having what basically amount to hate-watch marathons of some of the shows. Read more

Wait; didn’t Sauron forge the rings in the Second Age? His defeat by Isildur and crew was the end of the Second Age, I think; Frodo met Galadriel basically at the end of the Third Age, which lasted ~3000 years. Of course, I may be misremembering; the history of Middle-Earth, while really interesting, is pretty dense Read more

You know, I am usually on board with most of your takes about stuff like this, but that goddamn “Brothers in Arms” portion of the episode killed me dead, so I disagree. I thought it was a perfect use of the song and the episode’s time, and thought “With or Without You” was a great thematic choice as well.

Also, as an Read more

My theory for Captain Marvel has long been that she will swoop in, either at the end of the film or post-credits, and basically say that she is going to rock the shit out of Thanos. Since they’re not doing Adam Warlock just yet, it makes sense to me to introduce her in that way. Read more

FWIW, immediately following the end of the game, there was a line of UK players shaking hands with KSU players. They showed it once on screen and then moved off, so I couldn’t tell you how many players did, but handshakes did happen.

Although, to be fair, the title track itself is more about drugs and such (IIRC), but whatever.
