Holland’s in his 20s, so he’d be perfect for a CW series about Bond during his early secondary (high school) years. Read more

In a way, you also have to admire Nintendo a bit for not going for those easy cash grabs too though. Yeah, people hate on them all the time for being “out of touch” and not listening to what the people want, but on the flip side they also don’t just monetize the crap out of something once they have a big success on Read more

..oddly enough the phrase(or a variant of it saying something was “gas” meaning it was funny) stayed in Irish vernacular until the early 2000s at least, so   I didnt spot that at all..

I think CBS will redeem themselves with the upcoming 10-part Langoliers mini series.

And whereas unlike a cyborg like Cable, who is also a mutant with one of the wildest backstories in all of comics, Cyborg’s backstory is usually “He’d be dead from his own stupid/wreckless behavior if other smarter people hadn’t kept him alive.”

It’s so weird. I’ve always thought of The Stand as a road story. The world falls apart and everyone starts travelling. Some to Nebraska, then Boulder. Some to Vegas. A lot of the character development happened on the road, but they’ve cut almost all of it. It’s very strange. They’re hyper-focused on very particular Read more

EA has done a terrible job with the Star Wars license, I wish they gave a chance to make Star Wars games to some other company!”

I put in 50 hours on PS4, between switching over to stadia, where I’ve now logged 150ish hours. I’m on my second playthrough, and I’m over the moon for it. Yeah, it has rough edges and bugs, but my favorite games of all time are janky, buggy messes, so i don’t sweat. The world is beautiful, the exploration is fun, the Read more

Is Sony even selling the PS5? There hasn’t been inventory for like two weeks now. It’s not even on sale. It’s like it never came out. I wanna buy it and I wanna give Sony my money but they have no interest. This is the worst console launch in history.

I mean I have over 100 hours in and am still having fun so it’s definitely well worth $60 for me. I’ll wait 6 or 8 months, do another playthrough and probably get another 100 hours out of it.

It’s also in an interview so someone was actually asking him a question, it’s not John Cleese offering a bad take no one asked for on Twitter. Read more

With the caveat that I have not read Mr. Beans’ statement in full, I have to say the parts quoted in this article sound like really good points. And then this article sounds like a perfect example of what he is talking about. Maybe the author of this article meant it to be like a meta ironic commentary? Like what bean Read more

There's like a dozen cancel hashtags on Twitter at any given moment, but the AV Club still thinks "cancel culture" is a manufactured boogeyman of old white guys.

This beating up of Rowling is getting old. You go back to the original statement that caused this ruckus and its not a fraction as ‘offensive’ as the media’s retelling of the story implies. Is J.K. Rolling a 20-something suburban American hipster who struts around wearing being ‘woke’ on their sleeve? No she isn’t.

Frank Miller’s Dark Knight had not one but two sequels. Yes, it was also a surprise to me, so, I’ve read that third iteration, named Master Race. It’s about some master race. Read more

Greg Kinnear is my favorite casting choice so far. I think they did a good job casting Harold and Flagg, too. I’m not as bothered by Tom Cullen as others are, but I read before it came out that he was supposed to be more PC and he seems almost exactly like he was written and like how Fagerbakke played him in the 94 Read more

You sure about that? Because I was a kid in the mid-80s (b. 1977) and the games I have the fondest memories of from back then are the brutal execution challenges that were pulled directly from video games’ roots as quarter-munchers in arcades. Read more
