Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - 75

The first sequence of the movie (which is great, btw) is a prime example of why this series works. It's more interested in the characters and the humor than it is the big set pieces, and it knows how to mine both for maximum entertainment value.?

Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) - 95

This might become my most watched movie of the 10's. Probably already is.

YOU HAVE MEDDLED WITH THE PRIMARY FORCES OF NATURE, MR. BEALE, AND I WON'T HAVE IT!

One of the reasons the 70's is the greatest decade of American cinema.

I downloaded an indie baseball game called Super Mega Baseball, and it's super mega fun. The sequel is coming out with online multiplayer this year. I expect all of you to get good before that happens.

Chris Gethard: Career Suicide (2017) - 60

I'd imagine this would be pretty cathartic to watch for someone with a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, so it has that going for it. I do think the trend toward more raw, emotionally vulnerable standup (if there is one) is probably not a bad thing, but it's never going to get better than that Tig Notaro set. Chris Gethard's aight, but he's no Tig.

Community - Season 1 (2009-2010) - 75

This is a thoroughly enjoyable show, but it's kind of interesting to me how much funnier/better Harmon has gotten with Rick and Morty. Obviously, they're not directly comparable, but I think Roiland's improvisational style is a huge boon to Harmon, who had evidently locked down standard sitcom storytelling into a fairly staid (if not effective) formula.

JeanI feel like throwing a Rabid-style snit fit right now, but I won't.

Because you're too embarrassed?

There's nothing for me to be embarrassed about. You assumed that because I asked that question that I didn't consider the possibility that you meant you were already in law school and that Trump was joining you, which is wrong.

People buying this = 0.

I can't be held responsible for the forum's poor theory of mind :nail polish emoji:

After listening to The Canon podcast rip this movie apart, my impression of it went from nonplussed to annoyed. It really is a nothing movie.


FYI - I'm pretty sure you're using "nonplussed" incorrectly.

Hm, apparently I'm using it in the bastardized, North American way, like "begging the question" when you mean to say "raising the question." Wow, who knew.

I bet you get compose/comprise wrong, too, you vanilla gorilla.

What's the difference? The dictionary I'm looking at uses one as a synonym of the other.

You should take a lap, Jean.

I will not.

Yet it gets 45? Out of what, 1000?

There's a difference between a nothing movie and a horrendous or offensively bad movie. Come on, now.

Saturday Night Fever (1977) - 60

Look, I get that this movie is much more nuanced and character-driven than a movie about a bunch of guineas sliming up a dance floor has any right to be, but oh my god. Somebody please go back in time and take a flamethrower to disco culture. It is Western civilization's greatest shame.

Girls - Season 5 (2016) - 80

This season feels a lot less directionless than some of the middle ones, and it ends on a super strong note. I get that directionless has always been kind of the point, but it's great to finally start seeing some actual growth for these characters. I had a conversation over lunch with a girl who identifies the most with Marnie, while I identify the most with Hannah. I don't think it's going to work out between us.
