  1. Season 12: Good Riddance Lewin!

    I can't even watch "Undercovered", that one pissed me off from beginning to end. Yeah I felt sorry for the perp's daughter and insurance companies suck, but HE STILL BASHED A GUY'S BRAINS OUT. The hung jury was bad enough, but the fact he was going to guy back to his wife and child like it never happened...I mean, couldn't the wife had been more horrified about what he did? And who in the right mind would let a man capable of that kind of violence still live with that child?! Dont get me started on the twin bleeding hearts of Serena and Nora.
  2. What Are We Currently Reading?

    So I finally read The Widow by Fiona Barton.
  3. In Memoriam: Celebrity Deaths

    RIP Koko. Hope you got to meet up with your cats and all your human friends like Mr. Rogers and Robin Williams.
  4. LMAO!: Hilarious Movie Moments

    We've been talking about how great The Wedding Singer is in the Romantic Comedies thread, and there are just so many funny parts, including Jon Lovitz' rendition of "Ladies' Night". Not to mention: "He's losing his mind....and I'm reaping all the benefits!" *evil smile as he slowly retreats behind the curtain*
  5. Twenty bucks says Drago or Drago Jr says "I must break you."
  6. Unpopular Opinions

    Don't worry, I don't group you all together. And I know fun movies aren't immune from criticism but I really feel like all the fandom does is just complain about everything. Or maybe I'm just so burned out from the assholes that even civil debates are exhausting.
  7. Romantic Comedies

    No judging! I think it's because the trailer looked so awful that I was surprised that the actual movie was not as juvenile than it appeared. I mean, yeah, there were the "yup, it's an Adam Sandler movie" moments and the whole "white people going to Africa" plot made me wince, but it was surprisingly cute.
  8. That's what it reminded me of too!
  9. Movies Based on Real People

    Casualties of War is another movie based on real people/real events that is really brutal: a group of soldiers kidnapped, raped, and murdered a village girl during the Vietnam War. The first time I saw it, I couldn't breathe. I was left feeling numb, horrified, and wrecked for that poor girl. It's even worse when Michael J Fox tries to get justice only to have his superior officers tell him to "just let it go". So yeah, particularly relevant viewing for recent current events. And when they are finally brought to trial, all of their statements/excuses can easily be compared to Gandhi scene mentioned below: They pretty much do the same thing, blaming the victim for "giving away their position", blaming the war in general, and Sean Penn even tries to divert testimony by recounting how he tried to give an injured child mouth-to-mouth. FUCK. YOU. YOU KIDNAPPED AN INNOCENT GIRL FROM HER VILLAGE JUST BECAUSE THE BROTHEL GOT CLOSED AND YOU COULDN'T GET LAID, YOU RACIST PSYCHO PIECE OF SHIT.
  10. Black Panther (2018)

    I don't know what I loved more: Chadwick giving his award to James Shaw Jr (Waffle House hero), or Michael B Jordan joking that he was amazed he won because he thought Roseanne had it in the bag. LMAO!
  11. Warm & Fuzzy TV Moments

    Chadwick Boseman not only inviting James Shaw Jr to the MTV Movie and TV Awards, but also giving him the Best Hero Award he won for Black Panther.
  12. Romantic Comedies

    The Wedding Singer was on TV, and it's been a long time since I last watched it. I still love it. I think it's an example of a rom com done right, even when it hits all the cliches and tropes. And it's nice to see an Adam Sandler movie where he doesn't play an idiot manchild. He and Drew Barrymore had good chemistry, which has been consistant even when their other movies together haven't been as good as that one. (Actually, 50 First Dates and Blended weren't terrible, but I digress). The airplane scene is the best. Call me sentimental, but I'm a sucker for how Billy Idol and all the other passengers are so quick to help him out with the impromptu performance. "Grow Old With You" never fails to be sweet.
  13. Unpopular Opinions

    It wasn't just the Kelly Marie Tran bullying: the trolls have said the most vile things about Rian Johnson, saying that he should kill himself or that they'd like to do it themselves. All because he made a movie they didn't like. I guess it's because I'm one of the ones that liked The Last Jedi, but this is just out of control. Not even the prequels got this much bile. All the nitpicking and bitching is taking all the fun out of being a fan.
  14. Unpopular Opinions

    I don't know if this is a UO or not, but I have come to hate the Star Wars fandom. Not the movies, the fandom. I get it, not everyone likes the current movies. That's fine. But the nonstop whining -- not to mention the toxic fanboys that took pleasure in tormenting poor Kelly Marie Tran off social media -- Jesus Christ, it was like the Ghostbusters debacle all over again. THESE MOVIES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE FUN.
  15. Romantic Comedies

    I never thought of it that way. That's an interesting and insightful way of putting it. My friend and I like the movie, but we kind of agreed that Summer was a terrible love interest.
