  1. This is unrelated, but I really fucking hate that “retarded” is trickling back into the casual lexicon.
  2. I wonder if Amazon has a sense that a non trivial part of the original movies’ enduring popularity is the emphasis on relationships, kindness, handsome dudes, etc. Jackson seemed to whiff on that a bit with The Hobbit movies tripling down on battles and CGI porn.
  3. I mean this with kindness because I’m talking about my people, but this is a WILDLY “always online” perspective. Ridiculously so.
  4. He came up to me to tell the story with tears in his eyes and called me sir, how dare you.
  5. Anything that even sorta implies that Thanos might have had a good point is probably not a direction the MCU wants to head down.
  6. Nintendo has only really cared about making Nintendo adapters since the GameCube days and other than the stumble that was the Wii U this has worked out remarkably well for them. I’m not saying that literally nobody will not get a Switch or Switch 2 because they bought a Steam Deck instead, they’re just wildly different markets. Roblox Corp is worth almost as much as Nintendo. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Animal Crossing sold 10M more copies than BotW. They’re in the same space, they just don’t care, and they shouldn’t.
  7. I’ve largely finished the Hoth units (Rebel Vets, Tauntauns, and the big shooty canons) I started ages ago. I should make my own damn thread once I finish.
  8. Nintendo does not give a fuck about Steam deck and those platforms are not going to compete in a meaningful way.
  9. Honestly cannot remember the last time I used in game PC chat instead of private Discord channels.
  10. With Overwatch, Call of Duty, Halo, and Gears, Xbox has become THE premier place to be called the n word over voice chat.
  11. Bold moves for a self styled feminist to assume Gadot thought he was threatening her because English isn't her first language. If you're gonna swing might as well go for the fences I guess. EDIT - Also a big set of nuts on Whedon to have the audacity to ask “who does that” about threatening women. Read some industry news you dunce.
  12. As long as most / a non trivial amount of elites can not only weather but thrive through things like the recession, real estate crash, pandemic, etc., why would they be motivated to change anything? They just get to buy things on sale. I assume they either don’t believe climate change is going to be as bad as people anticipate and / or believe it will present opportunities.
  13. Wade got it right. I'm not saying he sucks or anything, he's obviously great. I just don't think he's going to be considered the greatest player ever, certainly not undisputed.
  14. If "being considered the undisputed greatest tennis player of all time" means picking over the dregs of Rafa and Federer in a relative talent void, sure.
  15. I did, mainly because of my long standing love affair with accessories. Whether or not you’d need it is probably a personal thing.
  16. I’m glad to hear this is good, I’ll check it out. I thought that Cena was surprisingly flat as Peacemaker in The Suicide Squad, so this is a nice turn.
  17. Batman goes out of his way to make sure this doesn't happen in the comics, sometimes to pretty extreme lengths. Yes it's a contrivance, he's friends with people who can think / move much faster than the speed of light, who wear magical jewelry that lets them do whatever they want, both of whom regularly get their asses beat. Again, I'm not saying it's impossible to tell a good story about Batman where he kills people, to a story about Spider-Man where he doesn't think, "with great power comes great responsibility," and so on. I just personally prefer movies about characters to have a focus on what makes them unique in the first place.
  18. Rob must have been seen Bored Ape Yacht Club art, realized that it's significantly worse than even his own feeble output, and concluded he was just leaving money on the table.
  19. The chase was unintentionally comedic and I loved it for that, but... yikes. The main issue I have with the show at this point is that I don't really have any idea what Boba Fett is doing or what he wants? I feel like Mando went out of its way to make you care about a non-Boba Mandalorian by making the show about Mando's relationship with Grogu, his creed, etc. Boba Fett feels like he has nothing more going on than being cool helmet guy. He's a crime lord that doesn't seem interested in doing crimes, and he wants tribute and respect but doesn't seem to want to do the work to get either. I love Star Wars, so you show me Boba Fett, Tatooine, some cyberpunk kids on amusement park ride colored vespas and I'm going to watch but it feels like the show hasn't tipped its hand yet. But you know... Danny Trejo with a Rancor is awesome, 10/10, no notes.
  20. You miss all the shots you don’t take, which I suppose is not the MOST tasteful comment in this situation.
