I know “tossed salad and scrambled eggs” was supposed to refer to the crazies who called in to Frasier’s radio show, but I can’t help thinking the producers did that to sneak in a reference to eating ass.
It certainly, eh, backcasted it.
Congo and Sphere were both better as books than on film. The Andromeda Strain (the original movie) followed the book so closely the book may have been the screenplay. Sadly, in most of those cases you can’t even blame the movie studio for the bad adaptations; Crichton usually had a hand in the screenplays. Crichton…
I agree, and I LOOOOVE the 13th Warrior. I just found it hilarious that they transplanted what was sooo obviously a Scotsman into a Viking culture.
I could win the lottery later and this would still be the best news I’ve gotten today.
Well, yes. You also had Kievan Rus intermingling freely with Geats, while both are speaking proto-Norwegian. When you’re dealing with historical films, mish-mashes are almost inevitable simply because no one in that day and age had played Crusader Kings II.
Monday night is my night to cook
Tuesday night we go and visit your mother
wednesday is the day that business is conducted.
It really should be released on the 6th of March, not the 8th, as that is Wednesday, and we all know what that means. I mean, it’s when everything is just right.
That kid is like 80% head. And of that 80%, that head is like 40% gaping maw. 20% chin. I’m guessing 3% brain.
The casting is less problematic than you’d think. At the time it’s set (10th century according to Google) Spain and parts of France were controlled by an Arab Caliphate. And the medieval Mulsim world was incredibly diverse and cosmopolitan. Up to an including high level government functionaries.
The 13th Warrior AKA The Eaters of the Dead, while not sci fi, could be considered ahem ‘hard fantasy’. The movie and book were more about new cultures encountering each other, how gross everyone is compared to your own culture, while traveling in a viking forest.
They want their own David Hogg. Just that the two kids stand up for very different things.
Not wanting your classmates to be shot dead: bad.
Wanting to be able to harass whoever you want to harass without being held accountable? Good.
No, I’m done, I’ve have it. This kid and his friends are being treated like fucking royalty by Republicans and right-wingers, while the Parkland School shooting survivors are still being insulted and mocked by the same people praising these kids. Fuck this shit. Dead kids? Who cares. Survivors? Who cares. Catholic…
They’ve been in the spotlight for a long time. They’re considered a hate group by the SPLC and are reportedly becoming “more militant.” They aren’t protected from the spotlight (there are articles about them based on this incident) but people don’t know what to make of them. It’s like coming across the Westboro Church…
White privilege is the media falling over itself to apologize when it thinks it misread a situation. If these were African-American kids, we never would’ve seen alternate video or explanations.
What makes you think she’d be such a good executive? She has no executive experience, something that people like even Bernie, Booker, and Inslee do. Where do you see this “steel” and what does it really mean? What makes you so sure she’ll sign into law such progressive legislation? And most importantly, what makes you…
That’s really good point, often a Democratic Presidency is as liberal as it’s Congress. Do we really think that a President Harris would veto a liberal policy put on her desk by a liberal Congress? Not a chance.
“What if one of the people who was assaulted by R Kelly becomes an offender? We gonna crucify them too?”
