    NFL Thread

    The nerve on Beckham to complain that the Giants didn't target him enough in that playoff loss to the Packers. Beckham dropped one touchdown and dropped another pass that killed a drive. This was on top of his "look at me!" posting of that pic down in Miami beach. Beckham wasn't the only reason the Giants lost that playoff game but was definitely a big reason. It certainly wasn't Eli...Eli played one of his better games with almost 300 yards passing. The idea that the Giants "did him dirty" with that trade to the Browns is also ridiculous. They traded him to a team that if they don't implode with all the egos will most likely be a playoff contender. They traded him to a team with that has a QB that is a rising star and can scramble. They traded him to a team that included Beckham's best friend and old wide receivers coach.
  2. I'm happy that Brandon will get another chance at playing Superman.

    Crawl (2019)

    I saw the movie recently. I didn't think it was bad and it was impressively shot but I thought the movie needed humor. Jaws is an edge-of-your-seat thriller that plays it straight but it had humor and clever dialogue. There's no humor whatsoever and every piece of dialogue is cliché and forgettable. The only humor the movie shows is the choice of song in the end credits. Crawl isn't a bad way to spend an afternoon but it could have been better.
  4. I never read Sam's run as Captain America but Bucky's run was great.

    TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    I was reading that Back from Eternity was the name of the remake. Yeah, the cast in Five was really good and the film was well-made. The runtime is just right and never outstays its welcome.

    Orvillian Media: Wireless Telecommunications Facility

    Hulu is probably a better home for it. I'm just disappointed that it's not going to be back until the end of next year. I don't think that does them any favors.

    Avengers: Endgame (2019)

    I wonder if that's a nod to Infinity Gauntlet #4 where Thanos and his lover kill the Marvel heroes in many brutal ways.
  8. My initial thoughts is I'm more excited about the TV side of things than I am than the movie side. Particularly Falcon and Winter Soldier and What if. I have no interest in The Eternals or Shang-Chi. Black Widow isn't exactly something I'm batting down the door to see. But providing the reviews are good, I will of course see all of them. This seems like it will be Marvel's time to experiment, particularly with the lesser known properties. They've more than earned the right to do so. Strange should be trippy and I'm glad that Wanda will be a part of it. Thor: Love and Thunder is definitely the one I'm most intrigued with and I guess we should have seen this coming when Portman did that little thing for Endgame. Definitely the most intriguing and good for Jason Aaron for getting credit here. I'll be looking forward to this the most moviewise. I can't wait for What if. Jeffrey Wright is a GREAT CHOICE for the voice of Uatu and I never realized how much until he was cast. I noticed Spider-Man wasn't listed. I guess some things still need to be worked out with Sony. It's interesting that they'll be waiting at least four years for a Black Panther sequel. Mahershala Ali as Blade was a surprise and cool announcement. Poor Wesley Snipes. ;) I suspect he'll be part of the new movie though. Everyone has been looking at FF and X-Men that everyone forgot Blade. Looking forward to when X-Men gets developed again and it makes sense to give them a rest for a little while.

    Five Came Back was a good movie, featuring a young Lucille Ball.
  10. I'm glad Hemsworth wants to return to Thor but it's him with the Guardians that I want to see the most. Guardians 3 with Thor is the only post-Endgame movie that I'm looking forward to.
  11. THIS! This definitely annoyed me. I still call the original Star Wars "Star Wars" though I do occasionally specify. But that naming convention didn't come around until the late-90s.

    Game Of Thrones In The Media

    I've put Game of Thrones out of sight, out of mind. This season shouldn't be winning for Best Drama. But I am glad to see Alfie Allen finally get a nod. I thought he should have gotten one for Season 2. Emilia did do her best acting this season I would agree but she's not even in the Top 15 in terms of best actors on the show. EDIT: I'm being EXTREMELY GENEROUS by saying she's not in the Top 15 of actors on the show. I don't think she's even in the Top 40.

    TCM: The Greatest Movie Channel

    Destination: Moon is on tonight. I saw it a few months ago and found myself really enjoying it. It's definitely hokey in parts and one character is so damn unrealistic and annoying. But I love old sci-fi movies.
  14. Yeah, I also thought that Lucas was pretty much pushed to the background this season and got lost among the whole Mike/Eleven/Max stuff.

    S03.E13: AKA Everything

    I would agree that locking up Trish in the Raft would be over-the-top. She broke bad but was not a supervillain. But like I said, she'd definitely be a great choice for The Thunderbirds.
