  1. Its the only Star Wars movie I saw twice in the theater, I made a promise to two friends who couldn't make it in the same viewing so I saw it twice two days apart. The romance subplot is contrived but you got to get Luke and Leia's parents together somehow, so I plowed right through it as something that had to be there. I think Lucas tried the detective mystery genre with this one but if so it failed horrendously. Sure we get the Tyrannus question answered when Dooku and Sidious meet but who and why of Sifo-Dyas are left to Expanded Universe to explain. But man that last scene with the Im
  2. The Trump voters in my FB friendlist have been doing 12th Amendment posts the last three days and its starting to get to me.
  3. 1st episode. "Well, if the Emperor can survive, why not him too?" Sigh. On the whole, a good episode even if Tremor was strong in this one. 2nd episode. "I really hope this is a teeny-tiny graveyard and not a nest. Nope, a nest." Look, I admit, I'm one of those who was cringing about the egg eating, even if I did not complain online about it (this one time here now excepted) and yes they are unfertilised and equivalent of IRL eating of chicken eggs but come on. Looking at the mother doting on them like that and then the story playing the child eating them as comedic was...ugh.
  4. Trump asks about replacing electoral college with loyalists
  5. I wonder if he pays for tips about his own side: Trump Supporter Arrested For Requesting Absentee Ballot For Dead Mother
  6. Plus being sick got him out of one debate and stopped Biden's attack ads while Trump's own kept going.
  7. Careful. The Incompetent Criminal defense was what Trump boys used with that Russian "adoption" meeting but it can fit here as well.
  8. You want to get Iron Man 3 plot?! Because that's how you get Iron Man 3 plot!
  9. Apparently he has been forming his team way before election: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9OklK9JBmA
  10. Oh no, is he going to piss into the bed(s)??
  11. Bernie -> Health and Human Services
  12. What happens if Trump drags his election court cases past the December 8th deadline?
  13. I'm more worried about the security briefings former presidents are entitled to.
  14. What if he runs again in 4 years and does a Cleveland?
  15. Drax's got nothing on me. Also, a return hi. Different shop. More books. Contract ends in December, might apply to the local library.
  16. No Star Wars, you say? Well sir, that's playing dirty Rick and Morty is pretty high on the list of re-watches MCU movies (I'm particularly fond of the Infinity War and the first Thor) Justice League Crisis on Two Earth and Gods and Monsters. Come to think of it the JL and JL Unlimited shows also get a lot of eyeball time Blue Mountain State Disney's Aladdin 60s Batman show American Ninja (not the show, you heathen. The movie!) Let's add some classy artsy fartsy now. Granada's Sherlock Holmes series
  17. Books. My dad will get a book of crossword puzzles, my best friend some graphic tpb of Deadpool/Rick&Morty/something by Mark Millar, another friend will get couple of birdwatching books.
  18. On the last point, yes, you're right, there's a difference between superpowers stories (the Red Queen series, like Hunger Games but with superpowers) and superhero stories. And thank you for these suggestions, I'll make a list a check my library system's availability.
  19. I've read the trilogy (there's a fourth book out now concentrating on the story from a supporting character's perspective), it's all right. I have read better and it is a very slow and unexciting narrative but I recognise the author's cred on her background research, especially on subjects like Elizabethian London/England and the history of alchemy. Closest soundbite I could reduce it is it's a supernatural Outlander. I have watched the first episode of the tv show so far and plan resume as soon as my work schedule let's up a bit.
