Re: This is the thread for people who died, died.

Billy Graham was probably the last espouser of vile socon politics who wasn't personally hypocritical until Mike Pence came along.

I didn't say gritty, I said adventure.
I'm specifically responding to the Ian McShane photo. If he were in it, it'd be gritty.

The one hope I see is that Neil Marshall will direct some episodes. He directed the great horror movie "The Descent," and "The Blackwater" and "The Watchers in the Wall" for GOT.

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

Everyone on Twitter should be liquidated. Nowadays that would constitute a literal coup against the state. Not saying you're wrong, mind you. I mean all their property should be seized and sold at auction and that they should be sold into slavery. If there aren't enough buyers, they should be force...

Re: Worthwhile intertubez finds

Bari Weiss is a doofus, and she got into a turd storm largely for sextupling down on the initial bad tweet. Friedersdorf is a doofus for not recognizing this, and for glossing over the "eternal foreigner" bit with his "immigrants are as American as everyone else" bit, which is great though it smells...

Re: I don't wanna see that!!!!

Ready Player One looks dumb. At some point we need to have a year zero on pop culture nostalgia. I dunno. It looks okay, but probably too young for my geezer tastes. I like the way Iron Giant has become a 'we nerds know it's good' thing. As for pop culture nostalgia, year zero would have to predate...

Re: 17-Year-Old Says 'I Could Buy an AR-15,' Gets Arrested

All the people saying the FBI dropped the ball on the kid in Florida, was he doing anything illegal that the FBI could have credibly done to stop him? The guns were obtained legally. Investigate and find out he was planning a shooting. He would have stepped over the "attempt" line at some point and...

That would be the best sick joke ever. One poster featuring him with the cast and the same one where he's been removed.

Re: To Infinity War and Beyond: the MCU Thread with Spoilers

The split makes sense, but the conflict is dumb. Every conflict they mention in the movie is one where no one would reasonably choose different. I think was all "everyone dies unless we act now" except for the one about the bioweapon at the beginning of the movie, which still seems like the right ca...

If the choice is between Stalin or Hitler winning, Stalin is the clear preference.
