I know, I was pointing out that weak leads is part of the deal with Star Wars.
A fair point. I mean, except for Anakin. That one is rock-solid.

What's next? Accusing a man of assault because he didn't realize that the naked woman who voluntarily sucked his dick wasn't interested in doing anything sexual?
Look, the second time she sucked his dick, he should have picked up on the subtle irony.

Everything here was open, though delays on more western and southern schools. Not here or in DC, though.

Re: Spearfishing With Luke: The Last Jedi thread with spoilers!

The lead character could have used a little work Name one Star Wars movie where that isn't true. Just needing "a little work" is a triumph relatively speaking. Relax, dude, I'm agreeing with you. But I think she needed a bit more work than Luke, for example. More of his failings are plot-oriented t...

True. They then saw that they didn't work, the cure was worse than the disease and changed their tune.
There is still a strong segment of that community that didn't change their tune, though. They are pretty noticeable in DC and PG County.

Rogue One was good and original. I would rank it as slightly below Empire as #3 in the franchise.
Yeah. The lead character could have used a little work, but it didn't spend all its time throwing back to previous movies.

Spearfishing With Luke: The Last Jedi thread with spoilers!

Finally saw it. I’d put it in between RotJ and “I have the high ground!!!” in quality. Still too much Mary Sue, this time in Rose and Finn, not Rey. But they kept it to a dull roar. Finn is now the only real hero character. Admiral GenX Millennial Wannabe was completely unnecessary. Fold all that in...

Re: cars and how they get that way

The article's point is that people would be doing this on purpose, to make the cars stop for them, basically meatspace trolling, which is really really dumb. That's different from accidentally stepping out in front of a bus. Someone hasn’t driven in the right neighborhoods or you would have encount...

So you can know if he deserves money for reshoots when his costar didn't/wasn't able to negotiate that into her contract. Other way around. Williams had a reshoot clause in her contract, Wahlberg didn't. Meaning he was able to say "lol fuck you pay me." Awkward thing is, they're represented by the ...

I suspect a lot of girls are still taught to be afraid of their sexuality. I don't think the current sex-negative trend in feminism is helping.

Re: When journalism goes bad

It feels like the racist veneer description is a bit too simple. By analogy the left just wants free stuff paid for by people they don’t like and left elites want the power to decide who gets what. There is some truth there but I’m not going to say that’s all there is. I think conservatives worried...

Also Stan Lee. In both cases, a 4 year old could physically overpower the alleged perpetrator.

I’m clearly exaggerating. It would take at least a 6-year-old to fight off Aziz at this point.

Re: Orange is the new President

What bothers me about this is that if he’d said the same thing in prettier language, it wouldn’t be news. You’ve seen this attitude on the left and the right, and this “scandal” is more about a violation of making the subtext text than it is about immigration policy. There is some serious deflection...
