  1. On the Talking Dead, the showrunner said that they made a joke about the song in pitching the sequence.
  2. I thought it was off to a pretty good start...Rick seems saner... things seem to be going well...until it rained zombies... Overall, I really enjoyed the episode.
  3. To confusing for the public to call it MLK, because of the movie about Harvey Milk titled MILK.
  4. Ian Hart is an actor who appeared in the last episode. I think Jeff's thoughts on the Cabin In the Woods connection are not connected to the actor...he was just pleased to see that actor.
  5. Seriously, isn't Baldwin doing this in reverse?! Aren't these the things that take you to rock bottom and THEN you convert?
  6. Seriously, if that is creating limitations, your animation team needs to try harder.
  7. Which will include the destruction of an entire city in a grand finale fight which was missing from the theatrical version.
  8. The only thing I could imagine that might be fun is a "Young Han Solo" film set years before Ep 4. But I cannot think of any other character that I would care about more of their back story. Young Luke Skywalker about a kid who wishes he could join the rebellion instead of the boring life we get to watch.
  9. Hmmm...I did not really find most of the Marvel films darker in tone... at least in comparison to the DC films. I found Thor, Iron Man and Captain America to be generally lighter in their tone, taking moments to breath and laugh, not remaining purely grim affairs. And that was also true of the Avengers...or am I misunderstanding what you mean by "lighter tone"?
  10. Oh, I do not doubt that...I am just attempting to apply retroactive logic to the film.
  11. It is interesting to me that none of the other zombies exhibit the use of tools, they are feral animals in a fashion, clawing and biting. But the little girl uses a weapon to do her work. Romero only showed tool use with Bub in Day of the Dead, and that was a triumph of teaching by the lead scientist. Day of the Dead is a favorite of mine. But anyways...it was not until Land of the Dead, a full 20 years later that Romero showed the Zombies learning to use tools on their own again. There are a couple of moments in NotLD where other zombies use rocks as weapons. The first zombie tries to smash in the window of Barbara's car as she flees, and later the lights of Ben's truck are also smashed by zombies using rocks, Can't think of a moment in Dawn of the Dead where anything similar happens. Good point...I forgot about that. I am pretty sure in Dawn, they just stagger around. The question is...when most zombies cannot do more, what causes the little girl to grab the gardening implement? Why did those zombies pick up rocks? Was the little girl close enough to human to have rudimentary and murderous thoughts? LotD seemed to suggest the zombies were evolving. Gaining a new, base concept of sentience?
  12. What should we conclude from the widespread popularity among various heathens and pagans of Mother Teresa, Saint Francis of Assisi and Jesus of Nazareth? That is different. I am speaking only of Bill Maher. (And just trying to take a moment of lightness here I was not being serious in least about Maher...hence the made up word "Poping".)
  13. Listen, guys...if Bill Maher likes the Pope, he is uh... Poping... wrong.

  15. I am pretty sure Criterion flash sales have been publicized in this thread in the past.
  16. And with the shutdown, you just know that will lead to more reboots!
  17. I am getting tired of DC/WB's tendancy for origin shows...especially ones that try and avoid central characters to the mythos they have. If he is taking on the famous Batvillains, the needs for Batman never arises. So the series would have to be about how Gordon fails and Gotham falls apart.
  18. I enjoyed it overall, but felt underwhelmed. I am willing to give it a chance. Whedon has had plenty of shows that got better and better... both Buffy and Angel were pretty shakey in their first seasons, and went on to stellar second seasons...
  19. SDG is allowed to have non-Catholics fill in for him?!
  20. Wait, what? Well, you were noting the real obsession with sexual matters lies with the newspaper. I was saying the 2012 elections were not quite as similar as Peter was making them out to be.

    Man of Steel (2013)

    Well, everyone knows that the earth's moon is...um...uh a weakness for Kryptonians? Making it the ideal...uh...prison? But not a weakness for Superman cause...er...
  22. Maybe Romney was not...but plenty of Republicans were wanting to fight culture war stuff at the time. So, to say they stumbled into it is an inaccurate painting of the last election... All to say, it is nothing like the scenario put forth by SDG.
