  1. I'm all for apartment living! It's just me so I don't care. I guess I'm lucky in that my neighbors are all pretty quiet and the rent isn't bad. I don't know if I would want to own a house unless I had a family and I'm not planning on that anytime soon. It makes moving easy, too, which I've been thinking of doing. Getting tired of the desert!

  2. Romeo and Juliet is a bad example as it was a different time and they were both young and stupid. ;D

    Sorry, but I would never back down on this point of view. No one's life should be so tied to another's that you simply cannot go on without them. You can, you're just choosing to take the easy way out.

  3. I guess WW must have operated under the radar for the last 100 years since yeah, it seemed like Superman was the first time someone like him had come along. Maybe she was Paris's best kept secret! She had to have been seeing as how she was jumping into action right away at the end of the movie.

  4. IIIIIIII....think that's a little different. I mean, a teenager shutting down because her boyfriend of a few months or so leaves her vs two elderly people who were married for 70 years? :p

    That, and I don't think anyone should be so dependent on someone that you cannot live without them, no matter your age.

  5. I ask because those movies portray a very weak female. Bella was basically nothing without her boyfriend. She went into a deep depression when he broke up with her, started committing acts of near suicide and didn't start coming out of it until another guy showed romantic interest in her. It's everything wrong with how women should be portrayed, particularly when the target audience is impressionable young girls. Yet this franchise made gobs of money and it was mostly a female audience driving that.

    Ugghh, I hate that character so much! That scene in the second one where she completely shuts down for months because her vampire boyfriend leaves her was awful. What kind of message is that supposed to send to girls? You should never be so emotionally dependent on someone that you can't function without them.

  6. I googled when the end credits started to see if there was anything to wait for.

    LOL, I did, too. No sense waiting around for nothing! I guess most of the people at my showing didn't as barely anyone else got up to leave during the credits.

  7. I have to say this movie was easily a top 3 in superhero movies. Period. It was fantastic. As lame as this may sound, it was fate that it took this long for Wonder Woman to come to the big screen. Gal Gadot was the perfect fit for the role and Patty Jenkins...well, if she could direct the rest of the DC movies that would be great.

     

    If someone could explain one thing for me though...

     

     

    Since I don't read comics, is it ever explained why Diana aged on the island but once she left the island she no longer ages? That was the one plot hole for me.

     

    Because Speed Force! :D

     

    But really, I guess for the same reason why immortal characters like Thor and Hercules don't age beyond a certain point. They just reach that magic age!

     

    Oh, and this movie was great! I agree about the No Man's Land scene, that was so good all the way through! My only complaint is the over use of slo-mo scenes during the action. It was starting to get annoying for me when they would keep doing it.

  8. I've never liked Kathy Griffin, but I was still aghast when I heard about what she did. I am glad she is facing some consequences for this. However, just like I am totally against painting wide swaths of Republican voters (or really any group) with single strokes, trying to claim that Griffin is representative of the left is absurd. I haven't seen support for what she did from any of my even far more liberal friends or in the comments on the left-leaning news articles that they have posted online. The statistician in me hates utilizing anecdotal evidence and I would not do so to try to make a claim that this is what all liberals are like, but I have no problem using it as a counter example against claims that this type of behavior is cherished by the left.

    I feel the same way, I hate when people generalize one side because of what someone did that's stupid or crazy. You have those types on both sides! I mean, what about the "patriot" who murdered two guys defending those girls in Oregon? I think it's safe to say he isn't a liberal! Left, right, it doesn't matter, they both got 'em!

    That said, this was a really dumb thing to do. A severed head, really? How is this supposed to be funny at all?

  9. I think I have ADD when it comes to playing games! I can't stay with one for long. I was playing this a lot but decided to jump back into Skyrim since I never finished the main story, never mind the DLCs. And oh, Fallout 4 was on sale for $20, so I went and got that. So far only a couple hours in but I'm liking it so far. Ugh! I don't know how people manage to get through some of these games so fast, it takes me forever to play through one.

  10. People were dying for him to be Bond and he ended up being one of the worst ones in my opinion. I NEED Idris Elba to be Bond.

     

    ANyway-- X-Men.

     

    The New Mutants is going to be a movie that leans toward horror. Curious to see if they stick to the plan and tie them to Cable instead Chuck.

    Demon bear storyline?!

  11.  

    There was a Gauntlet also in Odin's Vault, but Thanos also apparently has one.

    I think one is right-handed and one is left-handed. But why when there are only six stones, enough for only one gauntlet...

     

    Not everyone is only right or left-handed, you...you darned....handist!

  12. Spoiler, maybe, for people who didn't bother to watch The Sarah Connor Chronicles

     

    A good execution of writing against a viewer's expectations, when Derek Reese was killed in the beginning of an episode.

     

    LOL, I remember watching that episode with my brother. It was such a shock with how quick it was, I remember him going "What?! No!"

  13. The lame thing about the time travel stuff in Enterprise was that it never went anywhere. Who was the person in the future helping out those aliens in the first couple seasons? They purposely hid their identity and never bothered to reveal it! There's no reason to hide their identity if it's going to be no one important. :|

  14. I say try bike riding, it's how I mostly stay in shape and keep my stamina up! I'm not really into weights or anything but do push ups, pull ups and dips on a regular basis for upper body stuff.

    What I like most about it is I can just ride with my headphones on and just go for as long as I feel like. It's usually like an hour or so on average.

    I also stretch a lot which is really good for before and after exercising. I recommend this, as well! Throw on some ambient tunes from Youtube and just stretch for 10-15 minutes at least once a day.

    But! Like everyone here is saying, diet is a big part, I pretty much eat no junk food with the exception of 1 or 2 snack bars during the day when my stomach gets growly. It's tough to go without some of those junk foods but you get used to it, at least I have. And it's okay to have it once in a while, just as long as it's not too much or too often.
