  1. Season Three Talk: FFwSB

    I believe she mentioned that Democrats will need well over 50% of the vote to capture at least 50% of the House. So since your vote doesn't count as much, it's actually more important for you to vote.
  2. Race and Ethnicity in the Movies

    Reading the articles about Crazy Rich Asians, the whole "Asians are unattractive" thing caught me by surprise. Sure, everyone's got their own eye, but you've never seen a handsome Asian man? 'Cause I sure have.
  3. Except that was basically the plot of The Incredibles 2...
  4. The Casting & Recasting Thread

    Watching Avengers: Infinity War, during the scene between Thor and Rocket, the thought crossed my mind that Chris Hemsworth would make an interesting James Bond.
  5. I can see a difference between firing someone over something gross they said yesterday and firing someone over something gross they said 10 years ago. Is Gunn a better person now than he was then? I don't know. He's a better-behaved person, at least.
  6. Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)

    I see what you did there... (Michael Douglas once co-starred in The Streets of San Francisco.)
  7. This article has some good context: https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/7/19/17590302/trevor-noah-france-french-ambassador-araud-world-cup
  8. The Star Wars Saga

    So, any chance we'll see Ewoks again in the next movie?
  9. Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017)

    I managed to see this a while back, and my impression was that Judy and Peter did remember the game. They certainly seemed more interested in Alan and Sarah than kids meeting their father's boss would be.
  10. Season Three Talk: FFwSB

    I remember seeing July 18th.
  11. The Star Wars Saga

    You got the receipts for that claim?

    Because they provided the technology that Scott used during CA:CW. Aiding people who violate the Sokovia Accords is a violation of the Sokovia Accords. There's a chance they could have prevailed in court (Scott stole the suit) but as mentioned above, they didn't trust the system. And Scott didn't act like he was dragged to Germany against his will; I don't know why "dragooned" is the default setting over "volunteered." I'm in the camp of liking the smaller scale movies just fine; not everyone has to save the world. And it helps with Marvel's long-running third act issue. Most of the time, the third act is a big action spectacle, but the action doesn't have much suspense. Will the Avengers defeat the alien invasion? Of course they will. I think CA:TWS had a third act that finally had real suspense. Not whether Team Cap would save humanity from Project Insight (of course they will) but whether Cap would have to kill his newly-rediscovered best friend to do it. Here, the third act had more options than just victory or (unthinkable) failure. Granted, I was pretty sure that Janet would make it back and she'd be able to fix Ava, but that was a conclusion I came to during the third act, not right before it started. The other thing about scaling down the villain threat is that they're already dealing with something big and scary: the Quantum Realm. They could have made that the villain, and I would have been just fine with it. I had a good time, and I look forward to seeing it again.
  14. After watching CA:CW on TNT, I'm reminded that Ross is in the line of succession for the presidency. I would really rather not see that come into play.
  15. All Seasons Talk: The Complete Job

    I believe the Italian and her people were protecting him while he took care of Moreau.
