Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (R. Johnson, 2017) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

Obi-Wan wanted Luke to kill Vader the same way Jedi have always killed bad guys in battle. But that's not what happened in the throne room. When Vader threatened to give up on Luke and turn his...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (R. Johnson, 2017) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

Luke turned to the Dark Side at the end of Return of the Jedi -- he gave in to his fear and hatred and damn near hacked his father to death. Yes, he pulled backafter slicing Vader's hand off, but as...

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

Network television is dying. Every major content creator in Hollywood is looking to start their own streaming service to compete with Netflix and Prime, because that's where the future lies, and CBS...

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

It certainly isn't popular at the level of Star Wars, but the box office receipts for the recent movies show that there's a bigger audience for Trek than the small sliver of hardcore fans who watched...

Re: More Star Trek TV projects (including Picard series) in development

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that CBS has a better idea of whether Disco's popular than we do, and if they're throwing money at a spin-off, they have good reason to think people will...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

There shouldn't be any move to impeach Trump over Russian collusion until Mueller finishes his report, but there's plenty of other stuff Trump has done that rises to the level of high crimes and...

Re: Official Trump Presidency Thread, Part 2

Nobody's saying everyone on the right is ready to blow up Democrats, either. But a large segment of the mainstream right, including the President and the NRA, is encouraging political violence in a...

Re: What changes are needed in the Democratic Party?

The national polls in 2016 were more accurate than 2012, and one of the leading election gurus in the country gave Trump the same chance of winning as a coing coming up heads twice in a row. The idea...

They never intended for women and black folk to vote, either. Why should we give a damn what they wanted? They're dead and we're running the country.

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (R. Johnson, 2017) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

The fact is, the Ghostbusters movie turned out to be perfectly mediocre -- but no more so than a dozen other remakes/reboots from the last fifteen years that nobody got up in arms about. If people...

Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (R. Johnson, 2017) The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

People were excited for a new Ghostbusters movie until the moment they heard the words "female Ghostbusters." Then they spent over a year, starting even before the first day of filming, predicting it...

It's something we should do on general principles, but as a solution for our current crisis there's a much simpler and easily achievable goal -- lift the cap on the House size. Right now it's limited...

Re: Supreme Court -- 2011 and beyond discussion

Yes, but it would require 67 votes in the Senate for a conviction, which isn't happening unless the Republican party completely implodes or a major bombshell comes out.

Re: The One and Only Great Moments in State Government thread

A lot of companies use "contractors" so they don't have to pay overtime or offer health insurance. I'd bet the barbers quit that one shop because the owner wasn't willing to offer them fulltime...

Yeah, it's like when people wear a T-shirt showing a prism refracting light, it's just an illustration of simple Newtonian optics. You shouldn't interpret it as a symbol of a popular '70s rock band....
