Re: The Witch (2016, D: Robert Eggers)

It doesn't matter to the family, but it matters to us as the audience. It turns the movie from being a cautionary tale about faith and isolation (and thank you for pointing that out, I didn't make...

Re: The Witch (2016, D: Robert Eggers)

Re: The Witch (2016, D: Robert Eggers)

Just got home from seeing this and have been trying to figure out why the critics seem to be giving this so much praise.

Re: Mad Max: Fury Road (Miller, 2015) — The Reviews Thread

I didn't read this whole thread just to hate on the movie. With a 90%+ for both critical and audience reviews on RT, I'm assuming I'm missing something here. I gave the examples I did so I wasn't...

Re: The one and only ANDROID thread....

I need to take a look at the G3 in store. The lack of water resistance is a real negative though. I've actually dropped my phone in water before (luckily no damage and I had insurance anyways). If it...

Re: Guild Wars 2

Played all weekend, and had a bunch of fun. Sadly work's not been letting me play much since then.

It's been a pretty successful launch in my eyes, but no MMO launch is without problems. Probably...

Re: Guild Wars 2

The game is more PVE focused than the first one was, but there's plenty for both types of players to do. And the WvW stuff will be fairly PVE friendly too.

Also, they've already served 5 months in jail and that will count towards their sentence. So I guess this...

Re: Is it possible to not like your own Opinion?

Did you not have brothers and/or sisters growing up? Kids do this all the time. Some people never grow up.
