Re: South Park (Comedy Central) - Season 20 Thread

Was wondering how they would handle the election, makes sense to go back to Giant Douche vs a Turd Sandwich. Laughed for most of the Garrison stuff. Not amazingly funny but astute, can't wait to see...

Lo And Behold: Reveries Of The Connected World (2016, D: Werner Herzog)

Caught Herzog's new movie at the IFC Center in Manhattan last night. Like most of his films, people in the audience started chuckling as soon as he spoke, but there was a fair bit of humor in the...

Re: Brooklyn (2015, D: John Crowley), S: Saoirse Ronan, Emory Cohen, Domhnall Gleeson

I'm not big into romance films but this hit all the right chords, and the acting is really quite remarkable. Also they managed to do a period film on the cheap which is impressive in itself. I can...

re: Warcraft (2016, D: Duncan Jones) S: Fimmel, Patton, Cooper, Foster

I'm in. Huge battles, clash of civilizations, world building. But yeah, the CGI bothers me; it's still early though, they may be cleaning that up before the film release. But as of now too many shots...

Re: Short term investment advice post-real estate sale

The place I'm looking at is new construction and won't be available until early next year (it's a second round of townhouses that are going up). I keep hounding the sales agent to keep me updated so...

Short term investment advice post-real estate sale

Hi guys,

I recently sold my condo in Brooklyn to move to CT for a new job, and I made a fairly good amount on the sale. I'm thinking of buying a townhouse here in March or so, so I'm trying to...

Phoenix (2015, Petzold) S: Hoss, Zehrfeld

This German film is finally opening states-side and I highly recommend it. Pretty unconventional story with great performances, not your typical Holocaust-related fare (just in the sense that it's...

Re: Vanilla Ice stole my blu-ray player

This whole case baffles me. Not to namedrop but I spent some time with Ice and he's an intelligent, introspective guy. I just don't see him burglarizing a neighbor when he finally has something going...

Re: Clouds of Sils Maria (2014, Assayas) S: J. Binoche, K. Stewart, C. Moretz

I know Stewart gets bagged on a lot for appearing emotionally detached, but I've always found her to exude a type of quiet intensity in her acting. I'm glad to see her getting recognized.

Re: Broad City (Comedy Central) - Series Thread - New show produced by Amy Poehler

Didn't know there was a live tour until you just mentioned it. I checked tickets for my area (sold out, both shows) and it's up to 160/tik on stubhub. Guess I'll keep checking as it gets closer. Let...

Re: Long Running Shows you Didn't quite get to the End of

Watched all of The Office until the season after Carell left, then gave up. I also stopped watching DS9 after Terry Farrell flew the coop. Aaaaand never finished Babylon 5 because they kept moving it...

Re: Movies you wish did better?

I finally watched The Golden Compass a few months ago and thought it was fine, not great, but better than I expected. Aside from the ending. I was really bummed it didn't do better because the second...

Re: Movies you wish did better?

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. I loved that movie so much (it was my favorite film of 2007); it killed me that it didn't do better in theaters.

Re: American Dad! (Fox) -- Season 11 Thread

Ditto. It was such a small thing but very funny.

Also agree that this was the best of the TBS episodes, which definitely haven't been any less tamer than the Fox ones. Glad to see they're keeping...

re: Broken Lizard's Super Troopers 2 (4/20/18)

Not to be Debbie Downer but I wouldn't put any stock in the new headlines about a sequel. We interviewed them in 2009 and got identical quotes. I won't believe this is happening until I see a photo...

Re: Malaysia Airlines flight reportedly shot down over the Ukraine

Yeah, someone taught the rebels how to operate a sophisticated weapons system like that, no way they just looted it from a Ukrainian base and knew hot to work it. Unless some of the rebels are former...

re: Malaysia Airlines flight reportedly shot down over the Ukraine

Yeah I don't know who at Malaysian Airlines thought East Ukraine was a great area to fly over. Seems poor judgment on their part to say the least.

Re: Game of Thrones -- "The Mountain and the Viper" -- 6/1/14

Welp, didn't see that coming. Wasn't even sure we'd get the whole battle since they waited so long into the episode. I think I have post-traumatic stress disorder after seeing that fight.
