  1. I teared up a little watching the footage of early voting in Fairfax, Virginia. All those people literally risking their health (and lives!) to try and do what's right. Knowing it might not matter yet being so concerned it won't matter that they'll show up at the earliest possible moment to try and do what they can against it, I don't know. I'm kind of a huge cynic (and there's maybe a thin edge of cynicism in the actions of these people, too) but it really moved me! Probably something broken in my brain (or in my politics) that this mattered to me but the nation's longest lasting protest move
  2. I don't understand what you mean. If I had to guess, well, I assume you (and maybe Zathras?) are talking about The Big Lebowski (1998) but I don't really see the connection outside of maybe the setting, broadest possible genre definition, and maybe maybe maybe tone.
  3. Can you tell me the title of the Coen Bros. movie this is trying to imitate? If it's more than one, then, which ones?
  4. ImdB tells me Elisabeth Shue is back for one (1) episode this season (how????!) so I guess I gotta watch that episode.

    I was about to post a GIF of Linda Carter shaking her head 'No.' but I thought better of it at the last second. I don't want to go down that road! Can't just be dropping easy GIFs every which way! And, besides, who am I --- Mr. In-Charge-Of-How-People-Act-In-A-Pandemic? Have fun! Stay safe!
  6. The re-design makes me nauseous. (No, wait, that's an innate feature of me as a person!) What I mean to say is this : the re-design induces feelings of nausea in me. I'm not exaggerating for comic effect or anything like that. When I scroll down the page it seems like I'm standing over a vast empty starfield and the posts themselves are superimposed over it, floating above a plunging abyss. It feels like I'm on top of a tall building and reading words written on large signs held up over their own heads by people walking on the faraway ground. (I get a similar-but-different type of
  7. I kinda feel like by 2016 Crowe was well on his way towards his decline and Gosling was into his ascendance. I see the movie as a story about a widowed down on his luck PI with a daughter to raise, it's the origin story of him meeting his violent but generally even-tempered partner, it's kind of a movie about a TV show that never happened — one in which the Ryan Gosling guy is sort of the main guy, the Russell Crowe guy is that guy's older partner / mentor figure. Yes, I know what the title of this movie is! I still think that's the deal. (I understand this probably makes no difference and the

    Excited to head on down to the ol' movie theatre and catch a double feature of Tenet (2020) and New Mutants (2018, 2019, 2020). Just gotta make a quick stop first at the Broad Street pump to fill up on well water. Will make sure to lick the handle a few times before I leave, just to be safe!
  9. Saw it again yesterday. Not to be grim but the smog alert and pollution business and stuff ("don't say and stuff!") feels especially timely with what's going down nowadays. Stay stafe, uh, entire Pacific Northwest!!!! It's a 'Dudes Rock' movie, yeah. Surprised they haven't re-teamed since; not necessarily a sequel or anything but another period piece detective flick would be welcome. This isn't my favourite Shane Black, nope, not by a long shot, but seeing as it doesn't feel like he's ever gonna recapture the old magic I'd sure rather watch him do this kind of self-pastiche than I
  10. Feel like the following is the obvious joke about a film that's been delayed for three years based on a concept that's nearly thirty eight years old in a film franchise that is itself two decades out from the start but nevertheless — Old Mutants! They should've called the movie Old Mutants! (Also : they apparently managed to leap the hurdle of correctly spelling 'Sienkiewicz' in the closing credits but somehow goofed on 'McLeod'.)
  11. Oh, one of the rules last time around was 'No porn.' That should probably go w/o saying (although it's a genre that IS readily available on lots and lots and lots of major streamers!) but I figured it might be a good idea to mention it before we got started.
  12. Yeah, under these circumstances, weekly probably makes the most sense! I wasn't actually trying to suggest a change to your format — just remembering the closest we got to something like this in the before 'fore.
