Re: Rogue One, etc. [spoilers probably]

I did not care about any of these characters specifically (I can't even remember their names except for Jyn) but I went into it caring about them because I knew what they did and what it led to. I kept them in the context of the full galactic war, which also made the movie really bittersweet, becaus...

Re: What is your favorite game of all time and why?

Also Guitar Hero. I am putting off going next gen until my 360 Guitar Hero controller breaks (or RDR2 comes out) because that is pretty much the only thing I play. I think it just broke, too, so it might actually be time.

Greatest Unassuming Christmas Movies Of All Time

A lot of great Christmas movies are subtle. They are set at Christmas and their plot has little to do with the holiday itself - but the context can have profound thematic importance (or a comedic purpose) that almost exists independent of the film itself. Which ones are your favorite? Not Christmas ...

Re: ESports

Yeah poker is not athleticism. Lying is not a sport. If you turn lying into a sport then you are a goddamn sociopath.

Re: Do you guys like Neegan?

I remember being so let down by the Weatherman. The TV spots had Nic Cage waltzing around with the bow and quiver and I really was expecting some medieval onslaught version of Falling Down. That Negan wants to be "the cool" teacher definitely speaks to his insecurity and suggests some emot...

Re: Do you guys like Neegan?

From wikipedia: "Before the outbreak, Negan is playing Ping-Pong in his garage with some of the neighborhood boys who attend the school where he works. The boys refer to him as "Coach Negan". After defeating and belittling one of the boys, they run off and he instantly expresses regre...

Re: Most Overrated Bands of All Time

Led Zeppelin. Yes they were great but give me a fucking break. Blues standards and acid ramblings. If I brought you a song I wrote about Mordor or the Misty Mountains you'd tell me to fuck right off. Too bad nobody did that to Robert Plant. The Beatles, except for George Harrison. That guy was amazi...

Re: ESports

Endurance gaming does, but only technically. It really does take conditioning and lengthy training to be able to stand at an arcade machine for 2 days straight. Professional gaming ought to exist, and the culture should be big, but it is in itself no way an actual sport.

Re: Let's talk about characterization

The thought of Michael Caine as Emperor Palpatine just gave me a hard on.
