  1. For something that got such terrible reviews, that still seems high.
  2. She'd likely also have to make a report to Child Protective Services.

    Aladdin (2019)

    "Sultana" is also what raisins are called in a lot of English-speaking countries. I can see why they steered away from that.
  4. I guess with Code Black canceled, Med is going to be doing the same storylines as New Amsterdam a few weeks apart now.
  5. She did not violate anything in this case. The parents of a child under the age of 12 have a right to any and all health information. After 12, kids get a limited amount of confidentiality.
  6. Might also help to do more to lock down the cast. Someone getting sick like Michael O'Hare did would be unavoidable, but the other cast changes...
  7. As OTT as the plot was, I legitimately liked basically all of the performances, including Bloom. They all had good character moments.
  8. DPT, Doctor of Physical Therapy. I've said before that I identify with Iggy a lot, being a schlubby gay psychiatrist who lives in NYC. Every thing that he confessed to Martin was something I think about myself. I don't think I've ever had quite that kind of emotional reaction to a TV show before, and it was to this show, of all the damned things.

    Morbius (2020)

    Wait, is this officially an MCU story?
  10. I'll add Octavia Spencer for same.
  11. I am slowly, slowly slowly catching up on things that ended up in the backlog. Maybe it's just that I'm feeling, for a minute, the stress of the last few months melting a bit, but I found the last few minutes incredibly moving. Is that enough to overlook how ridiculous the rest is? I'm honestly not sure.
  12. They probably want to have a content pipeline for when Peacock launches. This is a show that they own.
  13. I think she was introduced last season as a foil for Sharon. She was the one of fired Stohl because...reasons.
  14. Jackie Brown is Tarantino's best movie.
  15. The hospital CEO (CFO?) with the crazy eyes.
  16. That, and it also makes it the 9/11 parallel more direct.
  17. I'd never seen it, but Madea just rushing in at the last second is one of the funniest things I've ever seen.
  18. What about Tyler Perry? I mean, I don't find much appealing about his films--and his moralizing in particular--but I'm also not the target market. And I give him all the credit in the world for being one of the few filmmakers to regularly employ women of color over 40.
  19. For the first time, something was credited as being "Based Upon Star Trek: The Next Generation Created by Gene Roddenberry." I assume that will be on the main show as well. It's a rather sobering thought that we are further away from TNG than TNG was from TOS.
  20. Any discussion of "Children of Mars" should take place in our conveniently-located Picard Forum.
  21. It gave me a lot of 9/11 flashbacks. I was amazed how powerful it was despite almost no dialog.
  22. I prefer Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The former has quite good performances (even if it's just Depp doing Depp) and good cinematography. The latter has awkward performances from child actors (Veruca excepted) and quite a few singers who can't sing. It has a good performance from Jack Albertson, one good song, two good memes, and the boat ride scene and the collective scar it left on the psyche of Gen X as the only things going for it.
