Re: Ready Player One (2018, D: Spielberg) S: Cooke, Sheridan, Rylance, Mendelsohn, Pe

As someone who thought the source material was fun but not really well-written, this movie was a bit of a step back. Sure, there are a ton of pop-culture references, but they are almost all (with a...

It replaces the part on ludus. There is a race instead of a quest. Almost none of the key stuff is the same and there are no gates.

He used love against him ... Georgie’s love of Bill and his fear of making Bill angry at him.

Re: It (Andy Muschietti, 2017) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

As with most King stories, the ending was the weakest part ... I had thought they might keep some of the original ending once they introduced Bill’s “he thrusts his fists” chant and then had Beverly...

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (Edwards, 2016) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I thought the same, especially about that recurring cue.

I really enjoyed this in IMAX 3D and was glad they didn't try to shoehorn in some cheap escape. The only this that felt too "mechanical"...

Re: Beating Dead Horses: The Hillary Clinton Recount Chronicles

I'm not sure how a recount checks the integrity of the machines used ... and even if it does AND there is evidence of tampering, what has the chain of custody been for those machines to prove the...

Re: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Yates, 2016)—The Spoiler Filled Reviews

I thought it was OK ... it was interesting to see the US side of the wizarding world but I thought that the two different stories they were trying to mesh together didn't go too well. I haven't...

Re: 2016 Presidential Election Part 2: Armageddon Edition

The results I'm seeing show Clinton up about 550,000 votes. Where are you getting 2.2 million?

I'm assuming he's a captive and that's why the first DS had such a catastrophic weakness .... ;)

Re: Timeless (S1E02) -- "The Assassination of Abraham Lincoln" -- 10/10/16

But in the continuity of this TV show, they would be, as evidenced by her sister's photo surviving in her locket.

Re: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 07/31/16

My main problem about the story is that it resorts to time travel and uses it in a very uninteresting way. Rowling destroyed the time turners in book 5 for a reason ... they remove stakes in the...

Re: When did you give up on the Highlander franchise?

Stopped watching after 3, unless you count the "renegade" cut of 2 as another release.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 07/31/16

The script from the West End 2-part play has now officially been released. Any one else pick it it and give it a read?

I'd rate this script-only experience as very mediocre. It's a shame that a)...

Re: Stephen King's Dark Tower-reading advice

I thought that the revised Gunslinger was a much easier read. I don't think the revisions make it a must read, but they definitely make it an easier read.

Re: Star Trek Beyond (Lin, 2016) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

Just because it's the Internet and unnecessary comments rule ... this movie got bigger laughs from me than the new Ghostbusters.

Re: Ghostbusters (Feig, 2016) — The Spoiler Filled Reviews Thread

I went in with low expectations and this movie didn't deliver at even that level. I didn't have any huge laughs and the origin-story stuff really dragged. The continuity of the rules of the world...

Re: Stephen King's The Dark Tower - (2017, D: Arcel) S: Elba, McConaughey

Are there to be sequels? From the images and captions, it looks like they are trying to hit most of the story in a single crack ... there seems to be parts of The Gunslinger, Wastelands, and the last...

Re: Game of Thrones (S6E09) -- "Battle of the Bastards" -- 6/19/16

It felt a little against GoT ... usually people die for stupidity. It was probably an easier death than Rickon could have ever hoped for ....

Re: Last stage show you attended?

I just saw the new national tour of Phantom of the Opera in Indy last night and it is a neat version of the show with updated set design and staging ... very enjoyable.

Re: Better Call Saul (S2E04) -- "Gloves Off" -- 3/7/16

Another great detail was that Crazy 8 was wearing a Tampico polo which I'm sure was his uniform for his family's furniture store.

re: Stephen King's IT (2017, D: Andrés Muschietti)
