Black Panther (with some spoilers)

I really don't want to overhype it, because the Disney/Marvel hype machine is strong enough on its own, but the more I think about it, the more I really, really love this film. It's definitely got layers to it, which is exactly what I want from a superhero story. Marvel has made good, fun superhero

Black Panther (with some spoilers)

I'm pretty hesitant to take anyone seriously when they say the latest Marvel movie is the best Marvel movie yet and it totally changes the superhero game, because they literally say that every time. And while I have genuinely enjoyed every Marvel movie except Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark Thor, they

What are some shows that make you feel... better?

Right. I found Arrested Development to be cringe-worthy in a lot of ways, too. (Like all of Season 3 with Charlize Theron. And the entire George Michael/Maeby storyline.)

What are some shows that make you feel... better?

I mean, to be a little fair regarding the take that Arrested Development could stress someone out: it is a lot of uncomfortable plot threads. Like, the *entire* season 3 plot with Mr. F and realizing that he's dating someone with mental disabilities and seeing that train speeding over the cliff is k

What are some shows that make you feel... better?

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Community are usually my two go-tos.

But undoubtedly the show that has given me the most joy for so many reasons (that I can't guarantee will apply to you) is Lady Dynamite.

The Cloverfield Paradox (review so kind of long)

TL;DR version:


If you told me that this film was only made a "Cloverfield" film after its initial shoot, I wouldn't be at all surprised. It wants to be Event Horizon without being anywhere near as visually scary (it's visuals are usually stupid here, actually). It also wants to be Sunshine with

The Cloverfield Paradox (review so kind of long)


Did you feel like Event Horizon was a little too scary and didn't spend enough time explaining another completely separate movie? Did you find Sunshine could have been better with less compelling characters and a more poorly defined inter-character dynamic, in addition to providing unnecessary exp

Ant man 2 trailer

I especially feel like as superhero movies get a little more serious and as Marvel especially prepares for Infinity War, it will definitely be nice to get something a bit lighter and that stands more or less on its own.

Ant man 2 trailer

To me, Ant-Man was great in the way that it mixed the "unashamed of the source material" elements of Phase II Marvel with the smaller scale and scope elements of Phase I Marvel. It felt smaller, more personal, mixed with creative action sequences utilizing an unusual power that we haven't really see

@jet presto (godzilla anime)

Eh. It's fine.

I'm all for animated Godzilla stuff, as I think you can tell some really cool and unique stories that you can't in live action. The "Godzilla in Hell" comic was amaaaazing! And you can tell that that story, or this one in this anime, would never get the green light to go ahead bec

@jet presto (godzilla anime)

Cool. Then that means it is probably structured like one of the good Godzilla movies. Can't wait to check it out!

Fun fact: Godzilla is Jewish!

(Just kidding: he's non-denominational.)

@jet presto (godzilla anime)

Oh sweet! Thanks! I knew it was a thing, but didn't know it was on Netflix. (I canceled my Netflix account recently, but got login info from someone else, so I'll definitely check it out.)

Also, @Jo Nathan, if ever he visits this site again.

Has anyone in here seen the film "Spring Breakers"?

Still haven't seen it, but I've heard good things about it.

best songs to drink to?

Yep. It was generally popular back then for writers to take old songs and just replace the lyrics (especially with more patriotic ones during times of war), so Francis Scott Key did that with his poem/song "Defence of For McHenry," which grew in popularity and, over 100 years later, became the natio

best songs to drink to?

Fun fact: the US National Anthem is just a poem sung to a popular drinking song from the early 1800s.


I don't know that I really have any songs that I specifically think of as ones I like to drink to. Pretty much anything Fleetwood Mac, Queen, B-52s, or Talking Heads really just gets me in a g

@nullfather (RE: Star Trek)

I always feel bad that I never got into Star Trek, but, well, I never got into Star Trek. I wasn't into Farscape as a teenager, but haven't really been able to get into many sci-fi shows. I know Babylon 5 is supposed to be good, too. But I dunno. Something about it just doesn't connect with me... I'

Blade Runner (2007 Final Cut)

The cuts don't ultimately have a ton of differences. The addition of the unicorn stuff in later cuts is the biggest, and most consequential, as they actually wind up changing some pretty key elements of the story (namely whether Deckard is human or replicant). For me personally, I always kind of wis

Acclaimed/Popular/Culty movies you've yet to see

I mean, all things considered, I've seen a LOT of films - modern and classic - and there are more films every day that pop up on my list. I still have to watch Good Time and The Square and The Lure and the Killing of a Sacred Deer from this past year! Never mind all the films I've missed in the pas
