You’re right, the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, the Iowa Writer’s Workshop, and the Ames Laboratory are all just urban legends. Iowa’s higher learning institutes are totally the laughing stock of the nation.

Never forget that JJ Abrams didn’t direct Cloverfield. It was directed by Matt Reeves, and written by Drew Goddard.

Rumor had it that the actual reason that HBO was denied permission to film at the University of Iowa was because there’s no way that Lena Dunham would be accepted to the Writer’s Workshop, and letting them film there would have reflected badly on the Workshop’s reputation. I watched half an episode and honestly could Read more

For the record, I enjoyed Mafia 2 - but I agree with your comparison to the first one. The first Mafia told a completely original story with great characters and a gripping finale, while the second just seemed to lift all of its major story beats from Goodfellas, with a mostly one-dimensional main character to boot.

The guy’s opening remarks were factually correct, and do not sound at all ridiculous if you have even a cursory knowledge of special effects, lighting, and camera technology. The more you talk without actually watching the rest of what he has to say, the more you embarrass yourself. Watch the rest of the video before Read more

Yeah, they do have forests in the outer ring that they could get lumber from. That was one of my gripes about the show - three of the most massive walls in the world were constructed around farms, villages, and a massive city in less than a century, while titans were in the process of overrunning the world. But they Read more

So, am I the only person that noticed that the “You let your family die” taunt was written with the same handwriting as the Joker’s on Robin’s outfit?

I dunno - I think it’s only emphasized when it’s noticeable. Antonio Banderas’ height is almost never mentioned in the media, but you put Tom Cruise next to Nicole Kidman and she’s made out to be some kind of giantess Amazon, even though she’s only 5’11.

Actors’ heights always surprises me. At first I thought, “Wow, Christie is a tall as shit,” but then I realized that she’s as tall as I am.

Rumor has it that Lawrence Krauss spent the entire runtime of the movie throwing popcorn at the screen and screaming “TELL ME ABOUT THE FUCKING CHLOROPLASTS!!”

Don’t forget that it was too long and filled with exposition, but also needed an additional hour of exposition about the blight and shuttle engines. Read more

My biggest surprise is the amount of times of I’ve seen people claiming to hate the S1 finale because it was “stupid,” but then immediately claimed that they thought that either Marty should have been the killer or a literal Eldritch abomination should have jumped out of a magical portal in Carcosa.

We may have constructed enough nuclear weapons to eliminate nearly every form of life on this planet several times over, but it sure is arrogant to come to the conclusion, in the face if continually mounting evidence, that we are capable of inflicting a completely unnatural and likely apocalyptic amount of damage upon Read more

That’s actually what makes Williams a really interesting composer to me, believe it or not - that he’s either phoning it in, or creating themes that help to define an entire decade of filmmaking. I honestly can’t think of another cinema composer that’s had that kind of career.
