I give it five years before they've nearly all transitioned to Kicks and Venues.

The “Let It Go” ad was meant to entice you to give up your gas-powered car, in an obnoxiously smug way, from a company who wants you to forget about their massive global emissions scandal.

Truly a rich and nuanced take. I’m sure no old crank ever thought the current properties that are being constantly remade and rebooted were crap. Read more

Is Boomer-made culture only universally beloved because the generation preceeding the Boomers is dying off (and not by pop-culture consumers anyhow), and most of it has been around long enough to hit peak nostalgia? Like, who's to say the Marvel Cinematic Universe or Harry Potter won't be seen as "universally beloved" Read more

Could we just replace Gibson with Tom Hardy again (or really, anyone else)?

So, they’re forced to raise the replacement creepy estate agent/neighbourhood overseer? Assuming it end with another couple (or Poots/Eisenberg again!) coming in to start the cycle anew?

I think moreso than how Heigl's (and Mann's) character was written, it's that she suffered from the Skyler White problem, where any rational adult knows they're in the right, but the production is also in love with showing off how awesome the shitty male leads are.

I made it through one episode. The conceit is interesting, most of the contestants are likable, but I can't suffer through one more reality show where the contestants are constantly obsessing over how to play the game.

Bits of Star Wars did actually come from real human life, but mostly in the set dressing. I mean, Lucas (who came from a small town and mostly toyed around with cars before escaping) literally named his main character Luke S (who also came from a small town and played around with landspeeders before escaping).

At this point, I don’t think anyone is going to kill Tom Cruise except Tom Cruise himself.

Apparently, 1976 was the last year when Hollywood made underdog sports movies where the hero loses in the end.” Read more

It's hard to say Dunkirk had a lead, it's three vignettes that come together at the end. I think he plays a substantial role in one of them, but there's a whole lot of identical looking white boys in that movie, and also Tom Hardy flying a Spitfire.

Pratt was working for years to transition from schlubby doofus to something more traditionally masculine, and had already gotten in shape for Zero Dark Thirty (probably Moneyball too).

The 10's have been kind of a shit decade though, maybe this is part of insisting hard enough that it's really 2009 so we can have a do-over.

You mean like here where the rear was already squat before the ATV was in the thing? Pretty sure that’s the air suspension deliberately lowered for loading. If a Model X can already handle 5 people in the back (figure up to 1000lbs there), an ATV shouldn’t be an absurd ask. No, I don’t expect the typical promo shot

Remember the “That thing got a Hemi?” ads for the Dodge Ram like 15 years ago? Appealing to stunted male egos is a massive driver in the modern pickup market (see also coal rolling, which this thing would admittedly suck at).

Based on Tesla's history, they'll only build like 5 at $40k, and ordering will only take place for 15 minutes at like 3am on a Sunday, but it will exist.

I’m in my 30s, a recent dad, and can’t wait for this to hit Netflix or something (like some of the other dads, there are no theatres in my near future). At the same time though, I’m obsessively into cars (and had toy GT40's growing up) so that helps. Read more
