Yes, but that’s what I mean — Let the Right One In gave an explanation for the minion behavior which made sense within its framework. The motivation in most vampire stories is less clear, which is why most omit human minions and just have the main vampire served by lesser vampires that they created.

My issue with IM3 is that everything after the twist is pretty much downhill in terms of quality. Like, the rest of the movie was with Guy Pearce playing the villain. Honestly, the other female character who was the revealed to be the villain in the Extremis arc the movie was based on should have been revealed the be Read more

I agree. Darkness is raw and emotional, and enough to be remembered by alone. I was young enough my first Springsteen was Born in the USA, and when Tunnel of Love hit I realized who he was and went back to Nebraska and was amazed. Read more

Endearing in that he could ensnare an audience of 15 million people, over 20 at his peak. Some of that was lack of competition, but he hit a nerve of white Boomer aggrievement. When you grow up in that environment, he comes off as an everyman who “tells it like it is”, of course it was all bullshit and he was a draft Read more

I’ve often struggled with it, too, but his creativity is staggering; it should not be separated from his art skills when trying to understand his legacy. Read more

I remember the 60's revival in the late 80's: all of a sudden my school had flower power kids and hippies wearing tie-dye shirts. By say 92 was when the 70's seemed to come back: I can remember going to ‘disco nights’ and if memory serves they kind of reference it in “Reality Bites” with Janene Garofalo’s character.

A band that wrote Panic cannot be said to have no sense of humor.

After half a dozen songs I get bored of Moz in any incarnation, but The Smiths definitely had jokez. You kind of need a sense of humour that thinks using “Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head” as an opening line is a hot zinger, tho. It doesn’t register with a lot of people.

Twilight Struggle - If you are going for “best” in the modern-age (excluding chess for example), it’s not even a question. Why? Because this game spent years as the number one game of all time on BoardGameGeek.com, and still ranks #9. That’s #9 out of tens-of-thousands. Read more

I nominate 7 Wonders Duel. Not only is it a great distillation of the original 7 Wonders game into a bespoke 2-player version, but the mechanics are tight, the artwork is beautiful, and due to the multiple ways to win (especially with the expansions!) every game seems like it’s entirely new.

Plays 2-4 but excels as a two player game.  Just the right amount of conflict in taking actions denying pieces with enough different strategies Read more

I’ve said it. Clean shaven, Momoa is exactly what a live action Namor should look like and can manifest his alpha male arrogance and anger easily.  Momoa’s only weakness might be Namor’s aristocratic elocution.

You’ll never find me on the side of “the CIA definitely didn’t do it” in any scenario, but that podcast had some serious problems.

Wind of Change was definitely overhyped. I enjoyed the history, but the lack of resolution made it feel very anticlimactic.
