  1. Sicario 2

    Yeah that part also got me. He has no problem killing the children of drug cartel leaders in the first one, but suddenly this girl has to be rescued for no reason at all. He didn't even hesitate to shoot Kate after telling her she "reminded him of someone very special to him (his daughter?)". Yeah, none of it makes sense.
  2. Sicario 2

    I can't believe nobody has commented on this movie since December when it was released two weeks ago. I saw it today about an hour ago and man...I have some qualms with this movie: First of all, inconsistencies and plotholes: At the start of the movie the helicopters have thermal vision which allows them to find the group of migrants, but then when the boy goes on his first crossing later in the movie, they just duck in some trees to avoid being seen? In the first movie, it's heavily implied, if not outright said that the Jefe at the end of the movie was the man responsible for killing Alejandro's family. Heck, the Jefe even recalls who his family members were. Now we're supposed to believe that Carlos Reyes is the man responsible?! In the first movie, Matt is just a CIA operative who isn't really a soldier, but in this movie he's full-blown tactical command/soldier? What? At the start of the movie, they try really hard to insert the narrative of Islamist Extremists and get you all emotionally invested in guys blowing themselves up in America, but then they completely abandon that aspect of the story and ONLY touch on it later saying "They were US citizens from New Jersey!". What the heck? How do you start the movie with that and then completely ignore it? Why even have it, then? Why not focus on Mexican Cartels smuggling over their own suicide bombers?! This entire movie ignores that at the end of the first Sicario, with the Jefe now executed things are supposed to descend into chaos and the Medellin is supposed to restore order, but none of this is ever mentioned and it's almost like this movie just ignores that all of that even happened. When Alejandro is initially kidnapped it's completely dark outside and the blackhawk pilot is overheard saying they're 15 minutes away, but they don't even reach the site of the shooting until it's well past sunrise?!? Now for my thoughts on the movie and the plot: The entire premise of the movie is that in order to rid ourselves of the Cartels, we need them to fight each other, and the way to start that is by kidnapping the daughter of a Cartel leader and then making them think it was another cartel so they start fighting. However, none of that actually happens. We never meet Carlos Reyes. The cartels never fight each other. The entire movie is basically them kidnapping a girl and then spending the movie trying to get her across the border or something? Nothing ever happens to the Reyes Cartel or the rival cartel, which is my whole beef. They "rescue" a girl by kidnapping her and then taking her across the border? The hell is that?!? Lastly, when Alejandro is shot in the face by the kid, I was extremely disappointed to see him not only survive that, but then mentor the kid at the very end. What a garbage ending. IMHO, it would've been a lot better had he executed Alejandro and seconds later the blackhawks show up, murder everyone and that's the end of the movie. Mission accomplished. Also, I hate that he took that kid under his wing. That's completely out of character for him and completely ruined the ending for me, because I know they're setting up Sicario 3 with that.
  3. Better QB Right Now: Russell Wilson or Drew Brees

    I was 100% expecting this thread question to be another Wilson vs. Luck travesty, but damn this is a good question. I think right now you still have to give Brees the edge over Wilson, but I think they're certainly on the same level of QB's. Hard to evaluate and compare them since they're such different styles.
  4. Lesean McCoy Accused of DV, PED use

    Odds that the entire instructions on what Shady wanted done are in his emails or text messages? Pretty good. As far as football goes, Bills are gonna be baaaaaaaaad and his fantasy value is tanked now.

  6. Madden 19

    Madden ratings are garbage. You know it. I know it. The Madden team knows it. Everyone knows it. I've wasted so much energy over the years complaining about the ratings that it's just not worth it. They're absolute trash, and ultimately they'll change after week 1 of the pre-season, and every single week after that and after the Superbowl when the finals ratings come out - THEY'LL STILL BE TRASH. When you have a company that refuses to have ratings people for each division who will accurately rate each team and player, this is the result you get. Also, none of this matters because all they care about is Ultimate Team and even there the cards that are released for players are trash in terms of their ratings.

    Yes, police confirmed that there was a home invasion and she was beat up.
  8. Lesean McCoy Accused of DV, PED use

    I'm over here secretly hoping it was Joe Flacco so we can see Lamar Jackson this year.
  9. Lesean McCoy Accused of DV, PED use

    You know for a fact he did that? If so, you're behind in the times. The woman already amended her original story to say that McCoy's "people" did that to her.

    And what I'm saying is that statistically, this isn't even remotely true.

  12. Lesean McCoy Accused of DV, PED use

    @Broncofan The new claim is that he wasn't there personally, but sent people to beat her up/beat her dog up or something. Her story is falling apart faster than a Dean Pees defense in the 4th quarter with the game on the line.

    Do you see what you're doing already? First it was "any decent WR who can play" and now it's "He's never had an AJ Green". That's exactly my point. It's never good enough for Flacco. Q in his prime? "He's not a #1!". Steve Smith Sr? "He was past his prime!". It doesn't matter. Russell Wilson's best WR has been Doug freaking Baldwin his entire career, who was a UDFA. Doesn't seem to impact him. Oh, and he's never had an offensive line. Oh, and his run game fell to crap once Lynch left. Still hasn't really impacted his play. Yeah, a lot of top QB's have top WR's or targets, but one major point that is often ignored there is that the reason those WR's become that good is because of the QB. Joe Flacco doesn't do that for anyone. You're either a stud when you come here or you're not. He's not gonna elevate your play at all and make you look better. Furthermore, while Flacco has never had that top 5 WR, he's had many years of great supporting casts as a whole, featuring guys like Ray Rice, Todd Heap and Dennis Pitta just to name a few.
  14. What Are You Thinking About v.CC

    Kevin Hart definitely plays one of the Thai soccer players. They'll shave his facial hair and pass him off for a 16 year old as the "comedy relief" of the bunch. Soccer coach gets played by someone like Dak Sheppard and everyone is saved by Dwayne Johnson or Mark Wahlberg.

    Our offensive line this past year was actually pretty damn solid. I don't know where this narrative is coming from that they weren't. And the year before that we still had a solid line as well, with Rick Wagner, Yanda and Stanley. Throw any above average QB behind that and we'll see much better results. Flacco has displayed absolutely nothing to indicate that it's as simple as "if you just protect him...". For example: Top QB's when under pressure. Notice who is #1. Yeah whenever the Patriots lose on opening day everyone flips their ****, but by week 3 it's gone. Flacco is never on any of these lists - pressure or no pressure. It really doesn't matter if we protect him or not, because he doesn't particularly shine either way. Oh trust me, I've seen Flacco with "good" WR's. You know what happens? Nothing. His stats don't improve that much, he still plays average-at-best, and all the fans go "HE NEEDS A TOP 5 WR! WE HAVE NOTHING!". They did it when Mason was here. They did it when Q was here. They did it when SSSR was here. They did it when Wallace was the #1, and there's literally no indication of that stopping now that Crabtree is here. If you don't believe me, just look at his career stats. The only outlier there in TD's is the Kubiak year. But he still had SSSR for 2 more years, yet his stats didn't elevate. He had Q from 2010 to 2012 and Q averaged like 5 TD's a year here, and Flacco's stats remained pretty much the same as his career average. Basically what I'm saying here is there is absolutely no statistical evidence that indicates that Flacco plays better when "we just get him a decent WR who can play". We've done that throughout his career and nothing's changed. If you want to see what you're going to get from Flacco with WR's who can play, just go back and look at the countless years we had Q and Torrey. Q and Mason. etc. etc. etc. it's always the same, except for the Kubiak year, where the difference was everything around him was good. The system. The run game. The WR's. The TE's. Everything. That's what you need to make Flacco even look above average, apparently.
