  1. Saw them. Thought they were neat! Wish there was more episodes. Always enjoyable to shovel the Star Wars into my eyes and ears. Had a visceral dislike for Toby the Astroboy and his stupid trashcan jetpack-backpack companion. Hated his dumb fleshy face, hated his hopes and dreams, really just could not stand his whole deal at all. I wish the Jedi hunter had killed him, sliced him right up, but seeing as he survived their battle I can but hope there's no hyperdrive on his T-16 Skyhopper so he's doomed to spend the rest of his existence drifting through the cold void of space. Liked the
  2. Summer of '99 at first. Joined up again in Summer '05; I did so a couple more times in between, too.
  3. Saw it! Loved it! The movie super duper surprised me by avoiding doing something that I was sure it was heading towards — a hacky twist that's still latently present within the movie itself but I was glad that it avoids explicitly foregrounding. I'm fairly sure what I'm thinking of (it's kind of a spoiler, I suppose) is even now providing fodder for dumb dumb YouTube clickbait video essays about 'The True Hidden Secret Identity Of Gawain', actually, no, whatever, I shouldn't be so dismissive of the imagined and assumed opinions of unknown others, that's not my bag, go with God.
  4. Yeah! Pretty odd when you consider that it all comes from a grand sum total of two (2) lines in ANH : "You fought in the Clone Wars?" and "General Kenobi, years ago you served my father in the Clone Wars." That's it. Nothing else in the movie and nothing else in the rest of the Original Trilogy.
  5. I gave up on this about five minutes in. The animation style is stilted, weird, downright unheimlich. It reminds me of the brainwashing animatics from the Jonathan Demme Manchurian Candidate (which also co-starred Jeffrey Wright!) or those rotoscoped flicks like Waking Life and the Philip K. Dick one whose title escapes me at the moment, wait, it was A Scanner Darkly and it was ALSO directed by Richard Linklater!!!! And the voice acting in it registers to me as equally off-putting, everybody’s performance is just way too low key. I think I’ll skip this show until and unless they adapt
  6. I take stuff fairly often. My body! It hurts me! You've gotta be careful, obviously, because too much of it at once or too regular use of the stuff will ... I'm not actually super duper clear on what'll happen. Burn a hole through my belly? Mess up my internal organs? Imbalance my humours? In any case, I haven't exhausted all the available remedies offered by the local apothecaries. There's still more kinds of pills to pop. I've been exercising fairly heavily (for me, that is, by my own personal standards) this summer and for a few weeks there that seemed to offer me some relief, the p
  7. I gave up about an hour and fifteen minutes into it. Wasn’t feeling it! None of the jokes really landed for me (because they were mostly my least favourite kind, Mr. Monopoly, just an unending sequence of Mr. Monopoly jokes over and over again) and there was maybe one (1) halfway good action sequence in the entire picture up to that point : when the three varieties of soldier action figure (the movie emphasizes how Peacemaker and Bloodsport are basically the same, yeah, but so is Rick Flag!) are being carted away in the back of a jeep to their deaths and they have to frantically best their cap
  8. Saw this. While plugging away on the stationary bike, mind mostly vacant, but a few thoughts nonetheless: 1) You'd think it'd get kind of old to just watch these characters overcome obstacles (and themselves!) while a Top 40 hit plays on the soundtrack. It doesn't! Can't wait for more of it! Every time a rocket blasts off, fun. Every time they use their deepfake tech to alter existing footage, fun. Every time they'd kill off a 'real' person, fun. 2) Every single thing I looked up that seemed implausible at first blush ended up being absolutely real, or real enough
  9. I didn't watch the show when it was airing (well, that's not strictly true — I saw the one episode everyone always went on and on about, I didn't like it, figured the show wasn't for me) but a couple years ago I sort of half-watched half-eyed most of the show from about the middle up until the end. I liked what I sort of semi-absorbed, I didn't really give it my full attention, I could tell I was missing out on something special though; should probably go back to the beginning and watch it properly. I think anyone really really excited about the movie, who really really expects it to
  10. Going to put this in a quote because spoilers follow -
  11. I think I'm pretty much the same as I was when I was 18. I don't think I'd get along well w/my 18 year old self, wait, how are we even interacting!??? Is this time travel rules or what!? Did he find a time machine!? Did I!? Who built this time machine!? Okay, ignoring that critical issue for the moment, I think the question of how the two of us (the one of us, actually!) would get along together is kind of silly when there's so much I can warn me about the world that's coming between '05 and now! I imagine we'd put aside our differences and learn to overcome our similarities and then just
  12. I feel like this is in some strange impossible (and obvious! I bet I'm not the first guy to make this joke!) way karmic retribution for Hannibal Buress being a landlord. If he'd only invested his money in, like, weed start-ups instead then Bill Cosby would still be locked up. His sin redounded through time and has freed the guilty! (Obviously, seriously, I blame the prosecutor. No, wait, I blame society.)
  13. I saw the pilot a couple years ago! I liked the scene where she banged the baker! Or, wait, was it the guy who became young in the pilot and banged a lady baker!? I don't remember who banged who but I remember there was banging!!! (Okay, I'm 9/10ths certain that there's a scene where the guy becomes young, seduces a lady baker, they bang, he runs away right after, and when her husband/boyfriend walks into the room and smells something off about the situation she just says something like : "Was just doing Zoomba.") I didn't find it sufficiently compelling to keep going w/the rest
  14. I can't seem to be able to 'like' this post. I get the following error message after I try : But, please, rest assured — I like it v. much! Glad you're home! Glad you're well! May things only get better and better for you from now on! [edit : whoops! it worked now! I like it! It 'like'd!]
