    I, Tonya (2017)

    I saw about 20-30 mins of this movie on a plane ride. From what I saw, the performances were good. I agree that AJ was really good. I hated her character so much. I also liked what I think the movie was going for, in principle at least. What had me stop watching was MR playing 15yo. That took me out of the movie. And I found out I couldn't really take the "this is everyone's version of events, who knows what is the truth". I appreciate the full warning though. I like black comedies and this was going for that. I guess I was expecting more truth especially since I have forgotten everything abou
  2. I never remember Shaw killed Han until someone brings it up. I blame too many movies (not really a complaint) and a lot going on. And I think that might be the one of the 2 movies (one being Tokyo Drift) that I didn't see. I saw a trailer. It just made me more excited to see this movie. (Surprised my screen didn't melt from all the hotness.) The fact that this franchise doesn't take itself too seriously, is ridiculous for ridiculous sake, is one of the things I like about it. Agreed, that Shaw and Hobbs working together was one of the best things about the last one. I'll be perfect
  3. I liked the movie a lot for much of the same reasons people here liked it. I've only ever seen JDW from a few episodes of Ballers and LH from Spiderman: Homecoming so they were as good as expected, better, especially LH since she had more to work with here. My one grip is the weird almost ending with Ron and Patrice moving towards the door/window/can't remember. This is definitely one of those movies that who watch once because it's pretty hard to take. Initially, my answer was going to be since it's based on a true story, then the actress was probably cast because she re
  4. I love this movie! It had me cracking up from beginning to end. I had no idea it was based on a true story.
  5. @topanga: Where I'm at I don't have cable, just the streaming services. When I get cable again, I'll check it out. I just presumed it would be on Netflix forever.
  6. Is this show still on Netflix? I went looking for it and couldn't find it. I Googled to see what I could find out and nothing.
  7. Would it be MLK? Did he ever travel that far west? I think JFK or Bobby are more likely.
  8. Just finished reading all 32 pages after finally getting caught up for S8. My big question after reading all the pages, is it clear from in the books (I haven't read them) that the NK wants/needs a dragon? Some posters made it seem like the NK was waiting for Dany to come with a dragon; like he knew she had the dragons and just had to bide his time. I didn't get that impression at all from any season. Maybe I wasn't paying attention. I alternately loved the pacing of this show and hated it. This last episode really brought it home for me. It took fucking forever for anyone to go anywhere
  9. Thanks, coppersin. That was what I was talking about. I don't remember that. At least one question answered.
  10. Saw this movie a few months back and forgot to post. I liked it. As has been mentioned already, the casting was great. My favorites being Chris Hemsworth, Cynthia Erivo, and Lewis Pullman. To look at Hemsworth is to assume he's costing on this looks. He nailed it as this Manson-type. Cynthia Erivo can sing! Act, too, yet that voice got me every time. I really felt for Pullman's character. He truly convinced me in every scene he was in. They really brought a lot to their roles, which admittedly they had a lot to work with. I didn't love the movie because I kept waiting for it to come toge
  11. I saw this a few months ago and forgot to post. I really enjoyed it. I didn't know much about her so this was very informative. I'm in awe of her brain and strength. I loved her relationship with her husband.
  12. I really enjoyed this. I wasn't sure how the being in the computer screen was going to go for me. It worked. I went in for John Cho and stayed because the story was well done mostly. The suspicious of his brother was a little much for me but upon reflection, David's character isn't in his right mind. And his brother probably figured it wasn't the best time to mention he'd been smoking weed with her. So I guess it makes sense now. Maybe I'm a bad mom because I don't know that I would throw my life away for my kid doing something so dumb and weird. She did say he's special. So does t
  13. Saw this movie earlier in the week. Loved it! I've had a crush on Constance Wu since I first saw Fresh Off the Boat. And Michelle Yeoh since Crouching Tigers, Hidden Dragons. Now Henry Golding. The screen should've melted from the hotness. I haven't read the books so I have no idea what's the same and different. It was tropey yet done well so I didn't care. My biggest pet peeve is I'll never understand how person A can know they want to marry person B, plan to propose, but that person B has never met Person's A family or know anything about it. I would've said said yes to Nick, too
  14. From what I've seen where I go for fic, there's plenty interest in Valkyrie and Valkyrie/Thor. Could there be more? More than likely. There are plenty reason why certain characters generate fans and shippers more than others. In my experience, het pairings in certain universes aren't as big as slash ones. And in this case, since Valkyrie didn't interact with any other female characters in the Marvel universe, the potential pairings haven't occurred just yet for some fans. I've seen a few slash pairings. We'll see what happens in after A4. I'm wondering the same thing. C
  15. This is from several pages way back. I had to repost it. Still cracks me up. I saw the movie last week and it's taken this long to really process it. It was an emotional experience. I needed a drink after and to sleep to recover. I'd put this in my top 5 Marvel movies (listed from #1 to #5): Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Thor: Ragnarok, Spiderman: Homecoming, Captain America: Civil War (which might as well be called Avengers: Civil War but that's a topic for another thread); At the time different characters died, I wasn't thinking about sequels so I was gutted.
