Anyone who was hard on Robb after his initial article should retract. He’s been a really good sport about this.

Counter-point: Even if these are not production spec cars, this is the first time I have actually seen a Tesla (of any sort) turn a wheel in anger AND make it a full lap at balls out speed around a track with significant length. No overheating. No constant breaking down. Just legitimate testing and tuning. And,

Simple answer: Telsa have been doing electric cars a LOT longer than anyone else and testing the crap out of them, pushing their own cars to their limits hence, their engineers know how to ring (pardon the pun) the most out of them. Porsche et. al. are very, very new at this.

So many of these roads-not-taken!  Speaking of Ryan O’Neal, hes a decent actor and more physically plausible than Stallone as a heavyweight, but I can’t help thinking that his Rocky would’ve been a heck of a movie-of-the-week rather than part of the modern canon...

I doubt they were thinking sequels at that time, especially since what they did with those sequels was so different from the original, but while Troutman killing Rambo would have made the most sense as an ending I have to think test audiences would have rioted.

It was sequels, but Rambo DOES die at the end of the novel, which I’d read years earlier. Of course, novel Rambo does all his damage with a .30-30, not a conveniently loaded and unguarded M-60.

well could be. i dont know when you read him saying that, but he IS like 102, now.

Rumor has it that Stallone rewrote the ending of the movie to give veterans hope and also give himself a big dramatic speech.

Yeah, pretty much. Evil Dead had a couple of good bits in it but the torture porn stuff got a bit old after awhile. Don’t Breathe made me laugh, but not in the way he intended I’m sure.

Uh, we already got a totally awesome sequel to Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It was called Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 and, once again, it was totally awesome.

A live-action She-Hulk. Never thought I’d see the day.

Col. Troutman has always been interesting to me, he obviously lied his fucking ass off to Rambo in the first and second movies about caring about him and trying his best to get Rambo out of the rockbreaking place.

Well, done great information. I’ve driven the Model S and recently Model 3, I’ll never buy another ICE car.

Additional information from an EV daily driver (Tesla Model 3). I just hit 1 year and 16,000 miles.

Having never driven an electric car myself, how do you like the experience? I’m coming from a sporty high reving compact (RSX) and a fire breathing, tire smoking muscle car (SRT). Is spirited driving as fun when it’s electric and single geared? I ask because when next-car time comes in 10 years or so I’ll probably

There are novels that would never get published if they were written by an unknown. Dreamcatcher is one of them. I got a nice hardcover ARC of it when I worked at Borders and took it home to read over the weekend. About a hundred or so pages in I was like, oh, no, he’s not gonna... they’re not gonna... oh, for fuck’s

Thanks for the list! I’m familiar with some of these titles. Weird Detective sounds fun.

Nice! I didn’t know that about Ursa. Though if she’d gone with that role we probably wouldn’t have gotten Star Crash, either. Sara Douglas brought a real sense of aristocratic menace and contempt to the role (which is interesting because it seems that up util that point she was still known for playing ingenues).

I think The Shining was the third King adaptation, after Carrie and the ‘Salem’s Lot miniseries directed by Tobe Hooper from 1979.
