  1. Katie Sackhoff and Katheryn Winnick were my top two, but I'm open to seeing what Larson does with the part.
  2. 2019 Oscar nominations for Best Picture: “Black Panther” “BlacKkKlansman” “Bohemian Rhapsody” “The Favourite” “Green Book” “Roma” “A Star Is Born” “Vice”
  3. What movies do you think are more deserving of Best Picture? I'm just curious; to be honest I don't even know which films have been nominated.
  4. The Green Book was mostly funny, though it obviously had some heavy moments. Mahershala and Viggo deserve whatever awards they win.
  5. Euro. Metal. Duh. Metal bands you probably haven't heard of: Volbeat vs. Lacuna Coil
  6. Just got back from Alita. The eyes didn't bother anyone--just made it really obvious that she's a cyborg. As slikmar noted, it was highly compressed--the movie effectively covers I think three volumes of the manga. Not issues--volumes. The film also was not remotely as violent or disturbing as the manga.
  7. One wonders how professional sports remain solvent in a milieu of supers. My family is dying to see Captain Marvel. I confess I've been avoiding the trailers, as is my custom for movies that I assume I'm going to see in the theater regardless, so I have no idea if they're any good or not.
  8. Vader and Behemoth are pretty well known, but the Finnish metal scene is where it's at. HIM, Ensefiras, and Nightwish, and of course Apocalyptica hails from there as well.
  9. I actually don't want Force ability to be genetic. At all. I get why you're-a-wizard-Harry is a popular story, and why it's almost necessary for background reasons. But I'd rather Force ability be the result of character and hard work, rather than some kind of latent royalty.
  10. The NFL has settled the Kaepernick lawsuit for chump change around $70M.
  11. *observes Cancer crashing PETA into each other at 0.99c*
  12. I would like for them to get completely away from SW altogether. Wrap it up with Ep IX and make way for something new. Not gonna happen because franchise and IP, but hey.
  13. The SW franchise feels like work at this point. Which is unfortunate because even the worst of these films had their moments. Ren and Rey in Snoke's throne room. "Luke" confronting Ren on Crait. Finn and Rey's meeting on Jakku. Ren's obvious conflictedness throughout. It's just that we have to endure so many plot holes and so much poor characterization to get to these.
  14. Can you post your credit card info here?
  15. And he's still doing that in the Disney trilogy, so...
  16. That's why I focused on Luke's record from the originals, to show that he's not supposed to be a Mary Sue in the first place.
  17. I thought Psylocke's costume worked great onscreen, but the obvious fanservice doesn't set a great example.
  18. Well, let's see. Luke vs. Tusken Raider: Raider. Luke vs. Trash Compactor Beast: Beast. Luke vs. Vader I: Saved by Han. Luke vs. Death Star: Luke. Luke vs. Wampa I: Wampa. Luke vs. Wampa II: Luke. Luke vs. Vader II: Vader (singlehandedly). Luke vs. Rancor: Luke. Luke vs. Vader III: Luke. Luke vs. Emperor: Emperor. I get a record of 4-5-1, which is thoroughly average.
  19. Hey, congratulations! Also, don't blow all your money at once on stuff to fill any new digs. Homes can be surprisingly expensive...
