  1. Shoot. That is hard. Were I the praying type I would pray for you and your mom. As is I have my fingers crossed for both of you, and am hoping that it is just a technical difficulty.
  2. So I hear from some circles, but at least where the professional reviews are concerned, the number are the numbers. You can go read the reviews in the original publications. Also, I have watched BoP twice and enjoyed it both times. So, I have no difficulty believing that it would get 78% favorable reviews.
  3. Hmmm, I have noted that Birds of Prey at the top of RT's popular streaming movies list. It cost $20 to stream it, so maybe it will wind up making a profit after all. This thought makes me happy, because while I don't necessarily want a sequel with Harley Quin, I really liked BoP's Huntress, Black Canary and Renee Montoya. If BoP acquires enough of a fan base, maybe they will set Batgirl, whenever they get around to making it, in the same universe.
  4. The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars & Motor Kings
  5. Some news sites handled it better than other and got comments from the senators involved before going press. Ultimately, the quality of the news you receive varies widely depending upon the source you get it from.
  6. IIRC, you live in Sacramento. I live a short way away in Modesto and work in a hospital lab. At our hospital we have about a dozen rule out coronavirus cases. Of the cases that we have sent out for testing, none have come back positive. But here is the stinger, only three have come back so far. We have been forced to send them to the health department for testing, and the health department has been incredibly slow getting back results. I suspect that Sacramento is in the same boat we are, full of hospitals with lots of possible coronavirus cases and waiting on slow to come tes
  7. Cool. I never heard of Jasper Fforde before listening to Early Riser, but now that I have I am interested in trying our some of his earlier stuff.
  8. Just finished listening to Jasper Fforde's (no, not a typo) book Early Riser. It is set in an alternate Earth which is colder than our own an most people in the Northern Hemisphere hibernate during the 4 brutally cold winter months. Our protagonist, Charlie Worthing, is not one of the hibernators. Charlie has taken a job with the Winter Consulate where he must contend with brutal cold, zombie like nightwalkers, unimaginative but aptly named Villains, the mysterious winter folk, and the nefarious HiberTech corporation. This was an enjoyable listen. Even though this is British sa
  9. I think they may have been hinting at that with Renee's mask at the end of the movie, but I didn't get a good enough look at it to say for sure. If I go back for a second watch, I will pay more attention to it.
  10. It has let other big budget, Warner Brother movies have crappy audience ratings. Why would it do any favors for BOP?
  11. True, but it has a very solid audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes, so presumably is getting positive word of mouth. Scott Ruggels take on it not withstanding. Also, really it his no real competition in the action genre for the next month. So it may be able to stay in the theaters long enough to break even or even make a profit. I think she was just saying that she like trailers and the director and cast interviews, and that is fair.
  12. Gail Simone's thought on the Birds of Prey movie
  13. No, it is getting a sequel in August of 2021, but nobody associated with the production has said anything about a reboot. Though, it new director, James Gunn, may choose to not honor every last thing from the 1st movie and they have already said that Margot Robbie will be dressed differently than the first movie. https://www.digitalspy.com/movies/a837989/suicide-squad-2-cast-trailer-release-date-plot-news/
  14. Just got back from seeing it. This movie is the cinematic equivalent of twinkies drizzled with chocolate; absolutely no nutritional value but still fun. Harley Quinn, Renee Montoya and the Huntress all made it onto the screen pretty much intact. All other characters are clearly the DC cinematic universe versions and share little in common with comic book counterparts. Personally, I was willing to accept them as elseworld variants and enjoy them on there own terms. YMMV. I had a lot of fun at this movie. Despite having a large ice tea right before the movie the movie
  15. *Raises hand* "Me, me, me, me!!!" Just thinking about the sex scene from Do The Right Thing still gets me a little twitterpated. Also, I like women around my own age. I am funny that way.
  16. Clearly, you have never tried Pabst Blue Ribbon
  17. I'm missing something here. The number of primarily rural states well exceeds the number of primarily urban states, so rural states as a block will always get to decide the control of the senate. Why isn't that enough power to ensure that they don't get steamrolled? Why do we need a president decided by the EC as well?
  18. I think Cassandra meant to say Potsie. It was a continued riff Happy Days.
  19. In the New Mutants, pretty much everyone except Robert De Costa was either poor or borderline poor. So, I think they felt they needed one rich character for contrast.
  20. Certainly not how I remember the character, but okay, if that is his current look, then I guess maybe we should give the movie one a pass. However, apparently the woman in charge is suppose to be Dr. Cecelia Reyes. Did she get a skin bleaching in the comics too?
  21. I am not convinced that they are necessarily planning ending with a single universe. That is where the comic book went with it, but latter DC went back to having a multiverse. Multiverses are just fun, so why throw away a perfectly good one. However, if they do go to a single universe, their will probably be only super watchdog organization, and as far as most people are concerned that will be as it always has been. Personally, I would go with Argus for that role since I can envision both Alex Danvers and Odell working for different divisions of Argus, but I can't envision them
  22. A darn good movie that's sequel now has a release date.
  23. It saves them money on feeding Smaug.
