  1. What movie are you watching?

    It's weird to say because he really is a big star, but I think Bradley Cooper is one of the more under rated actors of the past decade. I thought he should have won best actor over DDL for Silver Linings Playbook. DDL was good as Lincoln, but I don't think it's even in DDL's top 5 roles. Cooper carried SLP in my opinion. Cooper has done comedy, action, and drama and excelled at times in all of them. Not a flawless resume, but no one has that. Another under rated aspect. His voice work as Rocket in the MCU has been exceptional. He doesn't pull a Ryan Reynolds and you just hear his voice (which is what most actors do in voice only roles) coming out of the animated character, I actually forgot it was Cooper when typing the section above, but then remembered when looking at his filmography. That he does a great job and you really don't know it's him if you didn't know already is a testament to that work.
  2. Stan Lee, Marvel Comics co-creator dies at 95

    Kind of depends on the person. If it were me, i'd kind of like the idea of being CGi'd into cameos like that, but I definitely see why some people wouldn't like that. If any doubt, then i'd say don't do it, but still do the things like have him in background pictures or some other little subtle tribute that doesn't detract from the plot.
  3. Stan Lee, Marvel Comics co-creator dies at 95

    They should continue his cameos by having him in pictures in the background of future MCU movies. Still honors him without resorting to CGI'ing him (unless he wanted that, but I have no idea).
  4. Fortnite

    The thing that I dislike the most is being able to deploy the glider whenever now. Completely eliminated fall damage and any risk in building up.
  5. Stan Lee, Marvel Comics co-creator dies at 95

    I knew it was coming sometime soon, but it stings nonetheless. I grew up reading X-Men comics, and have been able to share the MCU with my boys in the past few years as they've become old enough to enjoy it. I'll always have a debt of gratitude for the countless hours of entertainment that Stan Lee and his contemporaries at Marvel have given me and my family. Rest in peace and EXCELSIOR!
  6. The Saints come marching in

    I don't think I need to explain which one we are going to be
  7. What movie are you watching?

    Rewatched Dunkirk. Even better the second time around. In 10-15 years when the recency bias is gone I still think this gets talked about as one of the best war movies ever made.
  8. Deadpool 2

    On the contrary, if this did well I think we'd continue to see dual theatrical releases. R rated release, DVD release, a couple months after the DVD release a PG-13 theatrical release. Dipping into the trough 3 times per movie as opposed to 2. Then probably an "Ultimate DVD" release that includes both versions. Plenty of stupid people that will buy all of these. I'll continue to see the R rated release and ignore everything else.
  9. Movies & TV News/Buzz Thread

    There is an old script that Crowe rejected from about 12-13 years ago where Maximus ends up as a time traveler fighting in a bunch of the worlds famous battles across time. https://www.theguardian.com/music/2009/may/06/nick-cave-rejected-gladiator-script Gladiator is probably my favorite movie of all time, but I don't think this is going to work. At least they aren't trying to shoe horn in Crowe as the main character.
  10. NCAA football

    I've only got Xbox One, and not to mention little to no free time. Love the idea though.
  11. Game of Thrones - Winter Is Here

    It was definitely a joke. If that actually happened, the show would likely be terrible enough that I would have quit watching by then.

  13. If not Day, then who? If there is a high profile guy out there that we have a legit shot at getting, sure, but i'm not seeing that guy. By all accounts Day is a big up and comer, sometimes you just have to roll the dice.
  14. Not familiar with the source material at all, but couldn't he grow a beard at any point? Maybe Geralt doesn't have a beard at the start, but then grows one for "reasons" at some point during the season.
