  1. This is definitely trolling. Did you get a good chuckle out this, kaitain? Show up out of nowhere to shitpost and then vanish? In any case, if this ever were to happen, it would be the last time I’d have anything to do with the MCU.
  2. A moody two-note theme for Batman? That’s new and innovativ...oh wait.
  3. JW is going to “compose” liner notes for the expanded and properly remastered Star Wars box sets coming out this year. Isn’t that right, forum lurkers who are working on the project as we speak?
  4. I’m going to indulge my inner Principal Skinner in saying that all the ridiculous Desplat-bashing I’ve been seeing on this forum had better come to a right pretty end right pretty quick.
  5. Marian, this is a beautiful gift to us fans! Thank you very much for these instructions; I feel I'm about to lose a good part of my weekend to learning about the world of custom Lego! A quick question: what is the meaning of the number after the comma in the parts list? (For ex., what does the 11 mean in "3958, 11") EDIT: I think I figured it out; those numbers refer to the color codes at bricklink!
  6. What's all this about JW acting? Wasn't his cameo in TROS the first time he was on film? If his "supporting role" in Dial M is a real thing, then I'll need to check it out. Did he have a speaking role?
  7. I'm watching this now on Disney+ as I idly wait for the Super Bowl kickoff. I gotta say, this film is truly special. No one makes a movie like James Cameron, and no one but him could have made a plot as derivative as this one engrossing. This thing was filmed almost 13 years ago and it looks like it could have been released to theaters last week. The computer effects haven't aged a day and the film flows in a way that makes it kind of timeless. No gimmicky editing, just straightforward storytelling. I'm excited for the sequels. Go 'Niners!
  8. I liked Black Panther more than most of the phase 1 movies, but perhaps more for Ryan Coogler’s abilities behind the camera than anything else. For a director with no prior experience with blockbusters or big budgets, he created a film that more than holds its own against the work of seasoned pros.
  9. Venmo must not be big outside the U.S. But here it quickly became the Uber of money-sending apps (“I’ll Venmo you my share of the bill.”)
  10. I agree with you there about his writing. It’s hard to explain, but it’s like his choice of adjectives and adverbs somehow make reading him 15% more difficult than it needs to be.
  11. Well, if it’s not too late to jump aboard the bandwagon, count me in. What would be the most convenient way to remunerate? Paypal? Venmo?
  12. What’s wrong with filming it in San Francisco? Personally, I’m curious to see if I could be selected as an extra. SF is a 30-min BART ride away for me and I’ve never seen a TV or film crew in action, so it’d be a neat experience.
  13. For all the crazy success Titanic brought Horner, there’s no evidence that he knew what a gargantuan hit his score would be, is there? I always imagined he treated the gig like any other.
  14. I don't follow basketball much and didn't realize LeBron passed Kobe in all-time scoring only yesterday. To read about Kobe's congratulatory messages, and see this quote: “I don't know if people want that or want to have this kind of contentious thing where you don't want records to be broken or people there to surpass you,” Bryant told USA TODAY Sports. “You should be happy for the person that comes after you to be able to surpass things that you've done. It's kind of juvenile to think or to behave any other way.” ...reminds me that Kobe was a true class act as well as an amazingly talented athlete. This is just a terrible tragedy.
  15. He was 41, Gianna was only 13. Untimely deaths (celebrity or otherwise) are all the more crushingly sad because the world will never know what they could have done, what ways great or small the world might have improved, if they hadn't gone so soon. May everyone lost today rest in peace.
  16. That's largely what I do. The show switched to 16:9 high-def at S20:E10.
  17. This was a fascinating read. Any chance you have more you can share from this 6-part article? Edit: I was able to track down the six parts at the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. For those interested, click this link, which should take you to Part 6. You can scroll to the bottom to find links to the previous five parts.
  18. Part of me wishes I could have stayed engaged with the show as much as you all have, since I liked the first two seasons a lot. (mstrox's legitimate concerns notwithstanding, it must be exciting to know there's a fourth season coming.) But then I think of all the great television, movies, books, and god know what else there is waiting for me and that I'll die before ever getting around to enjoying. I have so limited time for this stuff to begin with, I realize I shouldn't misspend any of it on stories that lose me. None of us should!
  19. My wife and I are trying to make it through Season 3. After episode 5, I've thrown in the towel. The characters have become close to unbearable. Everyone has an attitude and yells at each other all the time, it seems; the police chief is a shambling prick; the jokes are lame, and it's plain ridiculous that (1) four kids could basically spy on and tour themselves around unseen a (2) secret Russian science experiment thing straight out of Man in the High Castle that (3) was somehow built half a mile underneath a shopping mall with absolutely no one knowing. And I'm sure whatever that flayer thing is will end up being dealt with by the kids the same way we've seen in the previous two seasons. So I'm out. Killing Eve, on the other hand...
  20. I've posted in other threads before my feeling that there is no better time than now to get full and final SW expansions done. The Skywalker saga is complete, SW is at peak awareness in the populace, JW is available to supervise, MM has proven his chops and demonstrated his interest in the project and apparently already done a bunch of the necessary work back in '97 (not to mention whatever was rescanned for the blu-ray film saga boxset coming out soon), and the planet allegedly still has a CD pressing plant or two to stamp out the product. All the planets, stars, moons, and asteroids have aligned for this to happen. Really, the question is, if not now, when? When can it possibly get better to get 'er done once and for all? Is it time for a letter-writing campaign?
  21. The Elfman train keeps chugging along! I can't recall the last time there was this much material of his coming out so quickly.
  22. I’m with you there. AFO is actually a purchase I kind of regret making because there isn’t much on there that I care for. I should have put that $36 toward filling some catalog gaps in my collection from the reseller market.
  23. What?! Bite your tongue! I came to this thread just now to post that I love the Dolittle theme and to ask who else is playing it on an endless loop. The little brass fanfare at 1:09 is a delightful moment. One of many!
