    Alma wasn’t shown forbidding any mention of Bruno — Pepa, for one, also seemed to instinctively dislike hearing about him for reasons that had nothing to do with their mother. Nor did she exile Bruno, he left because of how the whole community seemingly reacted to him.
  2. Rue's plotline this season is basically a long form version of Homer setting his high school diploma on fire and dancing around while the flames spread. Lexi's play looks like it's going to be a full-on roast of the rest of the cast, which should be hilarious/sad.

    There no reason that men and women should have different required elements. When they did have required spirals for women it regularly stopped the program dead, so I always considered those being ditched a huge improvement also.

    People who want to do a spiral sequence can do one in the choreographic sequence.

    The top two US dance teams have already said that their preference is to split the two segments between them.

    The issue there is that you can only split two disciplines and by prior USFS procedure Nathan and the #1 ice dance team get right of first refusal on that. So there's not likely to be room for two women, they'd have to pick just one of them -- which is a problem in this case because in the short program you'd want a skater with a reliable triple-triple, which Mariah and Karen don't have. We're through day 1 of Canadian nationals as well, nothing terribly surprising has happened so far. Madeline Schizas is 13 points ahead after the women's short (the only person to both skate clean and do

    LMM is such a great songwriter, every song has so many little lyrical details that you only get several listens in -- like in "What Else Can I Do?", where Isabela's line "I'm coming through with tabebuia" is echoed by the non-plant-aficionado Mirabel as "she's coming through with that booyah!"
  8. Including video clips of Pink and Jennifer Lopez made those almost insultingly easy (I knew them already, mind you, but even people who weren't music fans would recognize the latter at least).

    The Last Duel (2021)

    Driver's character was having a pretty decent time until the very end.

    The Northman (2022)

    Sort of inspired by the Scandinavian legend that also inspired Hamlet, Robert Eggers leaves older English dialects behind for Dark Ages Iceland, reuniting with Anya Taylor-Joy, whose debut role in The VVitch presaged big things for both of them. He also coaxed Björk to appear onscreen again after she decided she didn't want to do more movies twenty years ago because Lars von Trier was a huge asshole.
  11. It creates alternate timelines upon their return.
  12. This movie solidified that I think Willem Dafoe's Green Goblin is the greatest comic book villain performance of all time. In general, I was a bit surprised at how much the Raimi movie characters felt like themselves here despite the wildly different aesthetic and writing style of the MCU. Maybe they brought some of the gravitas with them, because this film had a lot more genuine emotion than is often found there. One of the best MCU movies, in my opinion. And also, this was the first time since the pandemic start that I felt like it was a 'true' theatrical experience in terms of the

    No, that just means the Kingpin is a hard man to get at.
  14. It's a famous musical. Obviously it's not hot new IP or anything (though most of what's hot at the box office right now is IP dating from about the same period as the musical). Ultimately all you can do is try to make a great product. I'm not sure a run like that is really possible in the current pandemic box office, because so far it's been brutally difficult for anything other than action/horror to do big numbers. That was a trend that predated the pandemic, but it's only increased as older audiences have been much slower to return (in the nightmare scenario, of course, they don't,
  15. I thought Final Jeopardy was way too easy, and then 2 of the 3 missed it completely.
