[font=verdana, geneva, lucida, "lucida grande", arial, helvetica, sans-serif]I also like the fact that they (Orville) aren't using the same technology as ST. Namely, Teleporters. Want to go somewhere, take a shuttle bitches. Makes for more interesting plotlines, as you can't just teleport people in and out of trouble. Last night's episode wouldn't have been possible without some hokey "the zoo is shielded, no teleporting is possible" gimmick.[/font]

[font=verdana, geneva, lucida, "lucida grande", arial, helvetica, sans-serif]I think they are striking the right balance between comedy and drama and providing some really good characters to explore further as the series goes on.[/font]

I love the Noir version. Seen it several times. Not what I was looking for this time though. So the Anti-Cheese version of PM and AOTC is fucking GREAT. I don't know if we are allowed to link to warez on here, but most of the popular torrenting sites like TPB have them. PM me if you need help.

Just watch the first 15 minutes of the PM. It's a staggering difference.?

Watching The Hobbit trilogy morph from a bloated ball of disappointment into a single movie masterstroke has kindled a fire for more. I'm sure at least one of you brigands can recommend a top tier prequel fan edit. Do tell please. I trust people on here more than your average Redditard.

edit: I'm 15 minutes into the Anti-Cheese Phantom Menace, holy crap!

BaadroneIt's odd that some people lay all the blame on Disney while it's Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy making these decisions.

Flagrantly incorrect.

RookI got a chance to meet Nicolas Myer briefly at a con, had him sign my blueray of TWOK

I was expecting Orville to be more of a parody, given MacFarlane's track record. Was pretty surprised that he was playing things pretty straight. It was him living out a childhood fantasy I suppose. The scenes of the ship leaving space dock especially, MacFarlane had this "Omg I'm a starship captain" look on his face. But I don't know if you can fit a decent sci-fi plot in 30 minutes. I enjoyed the show, the crew jokes were pretty entertaining. But holy shit, the aliens shoot worse than stormtroopers.

Catbus Most overrated fantasy figure since Drizzt "Tyler" Do'Urden.

THANK YOU. Every time some wispy-eyed R.A. Salvatore reader starts gushing on that motherfucker I want to stab myself in the ears with a pair of scimitars. The embodiment of a high fantasy Mare Sue.
Only D & D character anywhere near as annoying is Elminster.


Daenerys' character started out with promise in the first season, but everything about her now is exhaustingly one note. Easily one of the weakest remaining characters on Game of Thrones.?

She's truly awful.

Jack and Kate from LOST, especially after season 1 when Demon and Curse got jealous of Locke's popularity and minimized him in favor of those other two. This of course lead to David Fury (writer of "Walkabout" one of the best eps in TV history, unquestioned) to quit the show in protest. Eventually the show spiraled into oblivion.

Buffy season six told us everything we needed to know about how much of a feminist Joss really is. Barf.

Good riddance.

TeamCanadaDestroyed is too strong, yet The Lost World: Jurassic Park's final Michael Bay'ish romp through San Diego keeps it my 3rd fav in the series (JP3 is my fav come at me brus... no annoying kids).

I suppose The Phantom Menace could've been saved by not having a. Disney channel ground battle & b. future Lord Vader playing VR galaga in space.

JP3 lol

i've seen everything

although iirc you're the LOST fanboy so i guess there we go

i love you

DeschainArya got horror movie-scary there.

arya was the only likable part of this ep for me.

her cunt big sister wrote a letter betraying her family. arya had enough cause to off her there but didnt.
this is the same sansa that was a total cunt to her growing up, betrayed her with joffery, got her friend murdered, her pet exiled then she's writing letters home to kill their older brother. arya is accurately reading sansa's inner desires for "nice things".

IllyriaHard for me to get over how stupid the whole 'let's catch a WW and show it as proof' plan is. Especially considering they could deal with Cersei in very, very short order.

I didn't think it stupid at all but it occurs to me she's just ruthless enough to try to weaponize it. Like catapult ?it into a castle of an enemy.

The idea to capture a wight is pretty dumb all the way around. First of all, when have we ever seen them in small manageable group? They're ALWAYS in huge hordes, Jon should know that. And I'm pretty sure by the time they got to KL, the wight they capture would go back to just being a decomposing corpse. They tried the same thing in the books with a reanimated hand but it just decomposed. I think the wights have to be somewhat near their re-animators for them to move.

Also who the fuck cares if Cersei believes them or not? Do they really think she's going to send troops up to the wall? No fucking way. She's not going to be helpful at all nor will she honor any peace agreement.

The whole thing is just to give us an all star suicide squad to go up there and fuck around. Which is pretty damn cool even if the reason behind it is shaky at best. They should have just said we want to scout the area around east watch due to Bran's report and confirm where the army's proximity to the wall. This whole capture a wight shit is entirely unnecessary imo.

My prediction is more than half the dream team dies, probably beric, thoros, tormund and jorah. The hound fights his way to safety and jon is rescued on a dragon. Viserion is killed by some crazy Night King special power and resurrected as an ice dragon.

Also Cow please again try and defend the mad queen committing acts of gross terror against a surrendered foe.

9/10

An excellent and underrated movie. The only positive credit I'll ever give Man of Steel is that it made lots more people realize how good Returns is.

edit wtf is this thread

Dany just burned all the remaining food left in the 7 kingdoms. Even if they beat the army of the dead they're all going to starve now. Thanks Dany.
