  1. Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    What is the ultimate goal of making the audience hate Oliver for whatever action he does/doesn't take here? Dude's already at Dean Winchester levels of self-loathing. Anyone with half a brain cell knows prison isn't a fun place to be. He can't be Hero!Oliver while locked up, so....what's the point?
  2. Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    I'm sure TPTB want to forget NTA's various betrayals from last season, but I'd love a little bit of compare/contrast with Roy and NTA. Heck, shooting a mentee with an arrow shows that Oliver cares (e.g. Barry.) NTA wishes Oliver cared enough to shoot them.
  3. Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    I feel like I already said this a while ago, but I can't get over the logistics of BS being DA. Like, she goes to bed at a reasonable hour, gets up every morning, drinks her coffee, reads the paper, then heads into the office? Sits through meetings? Participates in office birthday celebrations? How would she even know how to assign cases to the ADAs? How does she know what to charge people with? Is she part of the city's softball league or bowling night? Picks us her dry cleaning? Does she write in her journal how much she misses melting brains? It's so beyond dumb; I just can't.
  4. Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    LL 1.0 should have had all her cases thrown out as soon as she was outed as a vigilante. LL -2.0 should do about the same quality job as her predecessor.* Seriously, Oliver should have zero problems in prison if he just held a seminar on how to contact your lawyer and get your conviction overturned for both past offenders and anyone this version gets convicted. I still don't understand why no one is saying she's not LL and get her investigated. It's not like other weird shit hasn't happened in this city. At the least, Felicity should send an anonymous e-mail to Buzzfeed. (I wouldn't trust the Starling City journalists. I'm sure Diaz has provided every newspaper in town with a shiny new 3D printer.) *I'm aware none of this will be addressed
  5. Searching (2018)

    I saw it a few days ago, too, and really enjoyed it. I was sucked into the mystery of Margot's disappearance. The ending didn't quite work for me, as it seemed very Lifetime movie dramatique, but I don't know how I would have ended it so I was fine with it. As soon as they said Margot was in a cliffy, ravine area, I figured she would be okay because, for some reason, I zeroed in on one of the news stories in the background when Cho was searching for news that said a hiker survived being lost for 5 days. But the tension was ratcheted up nicely towards the end. I liked how realistic the websites were content wise. As an example, as soon as he searched her disappearance and Reddit popped up with all the conspiracy theories, I was like, nooooo, don't go there, it will only lead to bad things, lol. On a shallow note, dude who played Cho's brother was hawt.
  6. Small Talk: The Quiver

    I'm impressed @Mellowyellow. Last week I was in a public speaking class at my work, and all of us were in our 30s and 40s. And the majority of us were terrified. It's great he's starting so early so he'll be comfortable speaking in front of others.
  7. What sucks for me is he's not even open to different viewpoints. He says he is, but when presented with explanations of why x and y is problematic, he doubles down on being awful. After other news today about recent scandals (for lack of a better word) and apologies and what one has to do to rehabilitate oneself, I keep thinking about Chris Hemsworth's apology for dressing in Native clothes for a costume party. His apology came, like, a year after the actual event when no one was even talking about it, and it was sincere and reflective, and you could tell he listened to whomever spoke to him about the situation. In short, be more like Thor, SA.
  8. I will stick up for SA on turnaround time. I've seen production try to screw over actors with regards to turnaround, and SA was in the right here about the time not stopping until makeup is off and he's on his way home. Additionally, it's likely the AD would have put the blame on SA, so while SA may be a terrible jerk on set otherwise, he was right to stand up for himself in this instance. On another note, if he did defend his Texasgate stance, ugh, I can't with him. ETA: Having seen @Trisha's comment above, and as a (former) Texan, he can fork right off with his apology regret.
  9. Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    So, maybe 1/3 of the season will have Oliver separated from everyone. OK. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Could be great character development for the other 2/3 of OTA; could be a disaster. Can't wait to see which it is. :D
  10. Spoiler Discussion Thread: The Sequel

    Are we thinking Oliver will be out by the crossover, or will him getting out be part of the crossover plot? Or, none of the above?
  11. You know, that's not a terrible idea. He should consider it.
  12. The Starling City Times: News and Media about Arrow

    I wasn't going to watch the promo but all the bike murdering talk changed my mind. Hah, that was terrible. Always consistent, that CWPR!
  13. Not sure why but I thought that was a gif and both waited for it to autoplay and then clicked on it. 😣 I maintain if you're going to show SA in the shower, you best be showing those beads of water sliding down his back. It's the least I deserve for sticking around for 6 years.
  14. Crazy Rich Asians (2018)

    Here's the Notes on a Scene with the director, Jon Chu. I am impressed, as I would have never guessed that much CGI was used.
  15. Daveed was cast in the Snowpiercer show, but after the show runner quit, I'm not sure what's happening with it. I also don't know if it shoots in Vancouver so all this typing might be pointless.
