I feel like this sub-forum needs a "random thought of the day" thread so i don't start a new thread everytime a thought regarding entertainment pops up in my head lol. Please be courteous and use spoiler tags if you are discussing plot-lines. Thanks.

They're making another one? I enjoyed the first one, which along with Rocky, Raging Bull, and The Sandlot are the only sports movies I've ever liked. I think it mostly has to do with The Explosions In The Sky soundtrack though.

Pretty disappointing year for films. Mad Max was fun and Ex Machina was interesting. That's it really.

oh, yeah original film was great, but i was referring to the tv show, movie. last i heard, they were trying to do a crowdfunding for it, but it might be scrapped... speaking of raging bull, i need to watch that soon.

another random thought: loved that portlandia episode, one more episode haha, is battlestar galactica really that addicting?

That's my favorite Portlandia episode. I can relate to the binge watching addiction, especially with Breaking Bad.

I really want to watch Battlestar since there are so few good Scifi shows. Of course it's not as bad as fantasy shows. Honestly though, how have we had 60 years of tv, and only one good fantasy show? (Which is really going downhill)

haha, same with breaking bad. i was lucky enough to not have seen it til all 4 seasons were made available on netflix streaming. i binged watched all the seasons within a week or so. did the same for walking dead season 2.

hmm, look like battlestar is not on netflix streaming. such a shame, was looking forward to checking it out. ugh i guess i'll watch this show, the strain. looks kind of promising.

I was told that Astronaut Wives' costume were what people actually wore in the early 1960s....I had no way to knowing with all the Black & White shows.

I can't count the number of comments I've read on this forum from people not wanting to go to the movies alone. Believe me, no one cares. I went to the mess that was Mad Max: Fury Road recently, and the only other people in the theater were 4-5 guys by themselves. Many times I've spotted single women as well, and dozens of times I've been the only person in the theater, which can be a treat (most recently for Avengers: Age of Ultron). People aren't looking at you.

I really want to see Inside Out Now. People have been going crazy about it like it's the best Pixar movie yet, outside of The Toy Story Trilogy.

I think Marvel Comics lost a lot of readers today, and I may be one of them (at least when it comes to new comics). I'm only a casual reader anyway, primarily around the releases of these new movies. Sometimes I'll buy comics and not get around to reading them for months. I'm doing that with the "Secret Wars" big reboot event, where they're effectively "destroying" the entire Marvel Universe and replacing it with something lame.

Spider-Man has been one of my favorite characters since I was a kid. Today they announced that Peter Parker will no longer be the main Spider-Man after this event, but will be replaced by Miles Morales, the "social justice warrior" experiment from a few years ago (he's black and hispanic, and already replaced a murdered Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe). Marvel Comics is no longer a company centered around storytelling. Today it's focused on pandering to special interest racial and gender topics, influenced by screaming SJWs who have never read a comic but have made comicdom the latest target of their calls for "diversity" at all costs. Today Captain America is also black and Thor is a woman. Instead of creating new superheroes who fit the racial/gender parts they feel are lacking, they're taking established and legendary white and male heroes and changing their races/genders. It's truly disgusting, disrespectful and disheartening.

The inventor of the web injection thing (from the wrist) also won't be getting anymore money because the patent expired.

The two best movies of 2014 were made for a combined budget of 12 million dollars. It's amazing what a good story and quality actors can do.


Nightcrawler and Whiplash in case you were wondering.

Went to Full Metal Jacket in the theater yesterday. This was overheard from a group of younger guys in the theater.

"You seen this before?"
"No, I saw the remake."
"This was remade?"
"Yeah."
"Wait, are you sure?"
"Dude, I'm sure. Is Jake Gyllenhaal in this?"
"No."
"Dude, look it up."

(Of course he was thinking of Jarhead. Wrong war, even.)

I AM in a world . . . of sh*t!

The Bachelorette is a mess.
That one contestant will go into history as the only one to sleep with two Bachelorettes.

No wonder he's still single.
