  1. Venom

    Just rewatching the trailer of this. They call the bad guy Carlton Drake but for some reason I keep thinking he has some sort of connection with Homecoming Flash. Not just because hes Indian. But I keep wondering if they are wanting to make a statement. Probably nothing really but for some reason just seemed like 2 dots connected there.

    Really? I used to live there from like 2005-11 and yea it was really ghetto. I think I might wanna go back if it is up and coming. I have to live up here near @WizardHawk

    Maybe look in the Arlington or Grand Prairie area. @Desperado82
  4. The Box Office

    Problem isn't with her preaching. Or Rian Johnson, or Abrams or w/e is doing it. The problem is they focus more on what they want to get across to the audience rather then focusing on telling a great story while trying to get a point or two across. There are parts of Marvel movies that become preachy. But they mask it incredibly well with the entertainment. They don't let the message come before the story itself or the entertainment. That's the problem with Disney handling this. They have focused on getting certain messages across. Abrams for all his fault with the first still knew how to fit his message in with the rest of the story with subliminal comments or situations here and there. Rey telling Finn to get his hand off her. As in this woman doesn't need to be rescued by a man because she can do it on her own. Little bits and pieces like that throughout the film. You can even argue that her getting the best of Kylo was in that film was due in part because of him being seriously injuried. Considering Abrams built up Chewy's bowcaster for the entire film as being able to one shot anyone and kill them. He knew how to mask it and still make it interesting and fun. Say what you want Abrams copying A New Hope, but he knew how to justify the characters and situations and what they did and why they did them. It was plausible, it was debatable. I still gotta see Solo, I've been very hesitant but I may see it tonight. But that has been the problem thus far. The worst stories are the ones that try to force a message in where it just doesn't fit. All of Canto Bight, Rose, the white dictators, all are forced messages.

    Oh I agree completely. But this, "it's the new ESB, and is gonna be remembered as a all time classic in 10 years" or w/e is complete nonsense. The main reason why Disney bought this franchise is to make money. All others fall by the way side. Now they will always turn a profit with these movies just because of the fanbase old or young. But you gotta assume that the higher ups are sated but not nearly as happy had TLJ made the kind of money everyone thought it could including them. With the Solo movie not doing as well as one would hope you gotta wonder if they start taking it safer with future stories and keep a shorter leash on creativity.
  6. Top 10 NFL rookies that will exceed expectations?

    Yea it's the reason why I didnt include Callaway on my list. So many new faces, bad influence with Gordon who probably his mentor now, new QB, new offense. And......its the browns.

    I think those stats are going to get worse as time goes on. The only thing that one that will break any records at this point will be episode 9. And that very iffy at this point. As far the solo movies are concerned. I think it will get worse considering they are pushing out more and more movies.
  8. Teams to change 'location' names?

    Name is still bad. You have all kinds of animal names and generic names that reflect different culture parts of our country. Then you have the "Titans" that just stick out like a sore thumb. I suppose you could make a case for the Giants having a over the top name but that name has been around for a long long time. The name Titans seems like someone was either compensating for something. Or Adam's who was probably senial at that point put all his eggs into one basket then that basket broke and he had to scramble for something else. It just doesn't fit among the other names of football.

    Depends on what you consider inconvenience.
  10. TACT XVIII: Zeke's Whacky Weekend Adventures

    Oh Well you said children throwing a tantrum so you threw me for a loop there.
  11. TACT XVIII: Zeke's Whacky Weekend Adventures

    Is Colin Kaep there?
  12. If you were an NFL GM how would you do business?

    Find another GM job by the end of the day. Won't be able to survive Jerruh.
  13. Teams to change 'location' names?

    Sounds less weird then the Titans though. Still don't know why that name was accepted besides Adam's one of a kind ego. Which is saying something with some of the other owners in the league past and present.

    So TO is the cover of Madden this year and........hes in our Jersey. Not a 49er or a Eagle's jersey. I had to laugh because that's actually awesome imo.
