  1. So this infrastructure bill has been cut back so much that I don't even see why they're freaking bothering with it anymore. The reduced bill will be inadequate and will just be used as evidence of failure in the mid terms and the next presidential election. As usual, progressives compromise while the Right gives up....nothing. It'd be nice if sanity, justice, and progress won once in a while. Sigh....I'm so tired of being disappointed in America.
  2. Cool trailer, but can a decent movie be made with such an obvious villain as the focus of the story? I mean he flat out kills a guy just for being near him. And....Shazam really needs to be in this.
  3. Humans...especially Americans...only respond to catastrophe. Sigh....
  4. It's really hard to find light at the end of this increasingly dark tunnel. Sigh...
  5. Ran through a variation of Imaginary Friends.
  6. I've already lost family to Covid. I no longer have any sympathy for anti vaxxers or anti maskers. I tried to be considerate, but that doesn't work when only one side is doing it. At this point, I don't care what sort of pain and suffering they receive. Let them feel what they're inflicting on others. It's wrong...but that's where I'm at right now.
  7. My sister died of COVID this morning. So god damn pointless and preventable.
  8. Many of these have not held up well....
  9. None of it matters. People literally need to be dropping dead in the streets for anyone to care. We're that far gone. Sigh....
  10. Conservatives are perfectly fine with government as long as it aligns with their values and interests. Do you think they'd cry about "big government" if that government overturned Roe vs Wade? Not a chance.
  11. I'm tired of the progressive side having to make all the compromises though. Compromise is supposed to be a two way street. In America, it's the progressive side giving ground until the conservatives are happy while they give up nothing. That's not compromise to me.
  12. The only reason that the Reps are letting it go through now is that they feel they've sapped it enough that it will fail to bring positive results.....which they'll blame the Dems for. Again....too early to get excited.
  13. I wouldn't get too excited. The bill was scaled back quite a bit from the original plan.
  14. Round 2 shutdown coming up...
  15. My players are powerful at this point, but their teamwork tends to be off and on. The Ultimates use teamwork to make up for their relative lack of offensive punch. The contrast works.
  16. I updated AA to 6th Ed and changed Neon's name to Gaslighter.
  17. This was my official FB review.... Movie Review: Black Widow (2021). With the never ending delays on this film's release, it was almost inevitable that the expectations around this one would surpass what we actually get. This film in many ways reminds me of Solo. There's nothing particularly wrong with it, but there's nothing that really stands out about it either. If it hadn't been made, I don't feel like we would have been missing anything in terms of its impact on the MCU. Now....I'll freely admit this film would have felt much better had it come out before Infinity War. As it stands, this movie can't really offer up much excitement as we already know where this story ends. Taskmaster was the big draw for me and that ended up as a disappointment (and not for the twist everyone is complaining about). Dave Harbour's Red Guardian is probably the best thing about the film. I also appreciated seeing Rachael Weisz again (a favorite of mine since 1999's The Mummy). Again, there's nothing embarrassing here, but it just doesn't pack enough of a punch visually or dramatically for me to give it more than an average grade. So...this one gets a C+
  18. We do movies at the theater because it is a rare opportunity for a date night, but all of these reasons are perfectly valid too.
  19. Mega Monster Battle Ultra Galaxy Legend: The Movie- Essentially the "Infinity War" saga of the Ultra series. Lots of kaiju (and kaiju fights), more backstory on the Ultras, and decent CGI. I really don't have anything bad to say about it. It's fun and totally worth watching.
  20. My last option pick is The Cosmic Cube. Location is the Blue Area of the Moon (as per Marvel) Title: Dark Mirror Plot: The Grandmaster forces a conflict with the prize being a cosmic cube. As usual, he has other plans aa well. The players are all vaguely similar, but opposite: Homelander/Mon El, Loki/Mask, Phoenix/White Violin, Mastermind/Daredevil/Sensor Girl Much of the story's intrigue comes from the interaction of the game's various players.
  21. Option pick....Mastermind! Mastermind (Jason Wyngarde) - Wikipedia
