$44m might not be much for an opening weekend either but let's also remember that the movie looked really dumb on its face.

Seems like something someone would say if they only used 10% of their brain. :|

In Topic: Ray Rice Suspended 2 Games

A 2 game suspension here is ridiculous..

That said, comparisons to drug suspensions are also foolish.

If I recall correctly, and I very well may not, a lot of the drug penalties, suspensions, etc., are part of the collective bargaining agreement. I don't believe that there are equivalent guidelines for domestic abuse accusations, convictions, etc. So while the penalties for weed may be stupid and extreme, they were collectively bargained and their application doesn't require any thought from the league. Doling out punishment for something like domestic abuse requires some mental energy, and with that in mind, are we really surprised that the NFL got it wrong?

I get the objection to brevity of the suspension, but an apples to oranges comparison to drug suspensions is not only intellectually lazy, it's a needless distraction from the larger, actual issue.

8 is about what I would give the original. The issues with the pacing, balance, and AI are too big to ignore.

I never got into the multi, which is why I'll probably end up double dipping. I'm interested in the "making of" stuff, too.
