I’m in the same boat. JW wasn’t a brilliant movie by any means, but it wasn’t nearly bad enough to actively dislike, and I consider it the second best of the whole franchise (the original being first, obviously). Read more

It’s especially obnoxious because he’s a fucking awful director whose most successful adaptation is incredibly simple jingoistic bullshit that is pretty to watch, much like the original comic, because Snyder is not capable of anything more complex than that.

Also, Vincent D’Onofrio in military heavy mode is fun. Also, that one really incongruously lengthy death-by-pterodactyl.

He’s been spamming my comments too but I’ve been dismissing them. I’ll just leave this tweet here for his benefit.

Fair enough, unless it’s a peanut butter, crispy bacon, & lettuce sub, which I just invented in my mind and, having done so, might have been tempted to go home & experiment with if I was either younger (less harmful consequences) or single (I would never hear the end of it).

If they bother to do a commentary track for this on the DVD/Blu release, the AVClub HAS to resurrect Commentary Tracks of the Damned.

Careful now, peanut butter is arguably humanity's greatest achievement so far. It's going to be hard to pick a winner whenever we finally get around to time travel.

Don't forget that it also has excessive quantities of every single Subway sauce which combine to make the entire thing dark & Unpalatable. You'll be spending a lot of time on the toilet if you survive the Snyder cut sandwich.

I feel comfortable calling the 1st movie one of the best adventure flicks I’ve ever seen. Curse of the Black Pearl doesn’t get enough credit for how smart it actually is. Dead Man’s Chest is a much dumber movie, but I loved the introduction of Davey Jones, the EIC and I enjoy the romp that is the 3-way sword fight Read more

This actually sounds like a great idea..but maybe the execution was lacking. Reminds me of the rebooted Battlestar Galactica, which took a 1970's cheesy series and turned it into one of the best TV shows ever by going completely the other way with its premise than the original did. Read more

Maybe you remember Fantasy Island, though no one would blame you if you didn’t. ... the show hasn’t left much of a cultural footprint”

Anybody that had a tv from 77-84 was aware of Fantasy Island. And while you might feel it’s reverberations in 202, there was a long tail of it’s cultural influence. “Ze plane! Ze Read more
