  1. Yeah, after Mazes & Monsters and the satanic gaming panic of the 80s, I don't imagine Wizards of the Coast thinks any publicity is good publicity. Probably best not to associate your IP with murdered kids.
  2. He has to change our litter boxes rather than vice versa?
  3. I wonder how intentionally planting these in graveyards would work out?
  4. At least they did nod to Sivana's mad scientist role by having him collect info on all those people with similar experiences, complete with the Claire-Danes-in-Homeland working walls all over his office. And with the Seven Deadly Sins connection, he became more like Sabbac than Black Adam.
  5. It probably helped that Sam Jackson has been in almost as many movies as Michael Caine and they they had lots of footage from the 90s to refer to.
  6. Children + chocolate fountain is a very compelling reason for me to NEVER go to a Golden Corral. These days I avoid buffets except Asian restaurants, which in my neck of the woods are still exotic enough that very few kids are in evidence other than the owner's family.
  7. David Hyde Pierce had already stepped down from the Abe Sapien role, which makes that character's absence sting a lot less.
  8. Last weekend I had a strong urge to see a movie in the theater and Isn't It Romantic? was the only thing on that appealed. It turned out to be fairly funny, and for once Rebel Wilson didn't annoy me.
  9. I'm a bit surprised by how well Aquaman has done internationally (is still doing, I guess?). I had fun watching it, but never felt like I was seeing anything particularly special except maybe the part set in Sicily.
  10. My understanding is that studios get a bigger slice of the pie from domestic box office, so that's weighted more heavily than the same gross from international theaters. Also, with Disney involved, ancillary merchandising is a big consideration. I'm not sure how that shakes out in the US vs. international markets.
  11. Reads to me like that minimum of 1 point means that if it's a single half d6 rather than x 1/2d6, you're still guaranteed to do one point of penetrating damage regardless of the roll, but if it's something like a 3 1/2d6 attack you have to roll 4-6 to get the extra point added to the total from the three full dice.
  12. That could be a fight... I'm fairly sure Sparrow's breath is high enough proof to be lit on fire and dehydrate Aquaman. The news about Wonder Woman 2 is not good, but if anyone in DC's employ can pull a coherent movie out I'd say Patty Jenkins is that person.
  13. Friday night I had a dream that was like watching a movie. Set in an alternate 1940s or so based on the cars and some of the outfits, but in a Mediterranean country that was a survival of the Roman Empire. Russell Crowe and Diane Lane were the emperor and empress, and there was some kind of soap opera going on among other members of the royal family and assorted court members. Very Downton Abbey-ish if it were set in a palace with open air terraces over the sea and jade pillars everywhere.
  14. This one makes sense, as I'm pretty sure she has a stage outfit somewhere that could easily be modified for the role.
