I doubt many are collecting them for profit, I think it's just more of a nerdy compulsion. They're pretty cheap and come in just about any character you'd want. I'm not crazy about their design, but occasionally you'll see one that fits. The only one I have is of Vegeta. I haven't seen DragonBall Z in a decade, but he was just too cute. Actually collecting them seems like a nightmare, but to each their own.

I like looking through them in stores just to find the terrible ones. There's one of The Mountain from Game of Thrones, who doesn't really have enough iconic features to look like anyone in particular.

And just look at these abominations...

There's nothing wrong with respectful movie speculation, but the circumstances makes for toxic internet fodder. We should be proud. Here people are discussing the morality of dead celebrity etiquette, with only one person spouting off jokes. Some people on other social media are throwing around "good riddance" and smiley face emojis. God only knows what the hell is being said on Youtube.

I worry people will inherently give all credit to Joss Whedon if the movie is critically well received. I certainly wasn't expecting it to be good, but the trailers did make it look more playful than the other DC fair. Hell, Batman v. Superman's entire plot was basically an apology for Man of Steel's ending, so someone is listening. Then you've got Joss Whedon jumping in, who only makes things better. There's no telling how much the final product will stray from its original path. I'd hate for Snyder to hit the mark again and lose credit due to a family tragedy.

Death ProofOr are we violating the poor little snowflakes rights by not letting them annoy the shit out of everyone else in the theater?

I generally hate it when people throw the insult "snowflake" around, but the term is more than appropriate for whiny little dipshits like this guy. How is this even a topic of discussion? He's a dipshit. His date was probably a dipshit. They're both entitled little dipshits. Real life needs to give this guy a good slap to the face.

BadLieutenantThat's horrible news, and the prospect of speculating on its effect on a movie feels pretty grotesque right now.

This is how I feel. The circumstances of his departure from the film are heartbreaking. I can only imagine the whining, speculation and inappropriate jokes that will flood the internet. It's been easy to pick apart Snyder's work from the last few years, I'm certainly guilty, but I've always had a soft spot for him after Watchmen and Dawn of the Dead. Anyone who can't sympathize with someone who's suffering because they make bad movies is a piece of shit.

Shut the hell up, Hazel.

Am I crazy, or are the new posters who show up just to ask for help remembering movie titles the same person?

I just can't muster up enough interest to start this show. I'm burned out on zombies, especially straightforward ones. From commercials, fan talk and the few episodes that I've seen, it's hard to tell what sets The Walking Dead apart from anything else. A sheriff leading around a band of survivors in a post-apocalyptic zombie world seems incredibly run-of-the-mill. Even the color scheme looks generic.

1.) Emma Stone (marriage material)
2.) Christina Hendricks (abundantly juicy)
3.) Gillian Jacobs (I'm obsessed with her face)
4.) Sophia Vergara (big Latin boobs)
5.) Kelly Brook (ultimate body)
6.) Isla Fisher (cute incarnate)
7.) Jenna Fisher (from girl next door to straight up cougar)
8.) Emilia Clark (mother of trouser dragons)
9.) Ariel Winter (thick, petite and shamelessly trashy)
10.) Alison Brie (because I'm not very original)

Honorable Mentions: Anna Kendrick, Ashley Graham, Emma Watson and Taylor Swift's legs.

3.) His role in The Other Guys is the only that makes that movie worth watching

2.) Reno 911 (Best Cameo Ever)

1.) That time he saved Eugene

Dwayne Johnson is someone who's just too cool not to love, even though I don't like his movies. He's a celebrity with no baggage. He's a damn unicorn.

I love that Jimmy and Chuck know each other so well. The accusations they constantly throw at each other are always true, despite looking like paranoia to everyone else. How will the show go on after their feud is over? It's been the heart of the show for three seasons, and it's finally coming to head.

I thought he was amazing in Tusk. Both his roles in Tusk and Red State were wonderfully sinister. I would love to play those sort of characters, there's just something so maliciously fun about them, and boy does he nail them. I watched Tusk again recently and had looked him up afterward. I had no idea that he had played McGraw or been one of the Australians in Django Unchained. He really stood out to me and inspired me with his ability to bring characters to life. It's a shame to lose him.

Obi SpenobiI've enjoyed going to the theater in the last few months more than I have in a long time. A theater in a neighboring town was bought out by Cinemark, which is one of those recliner/lounger chains where you pick your seat ahead of time. Luckily, this luxury seems to come at no extra cost,

We have couch seating out here and if you're of age you can enjoy a glass of wine with your movie. I love the couch seating. it's like sitting in first class on an airplane but it doesn't cost extra.

It makes a world of difference. I had no idea that the theater experience could be so comfortable.

WooleyI go to a theater that only allows patrons over the age of 21.
That helps.

I miss a theater we had called Cinebarre, which was a restaurant/theater combo that only charged a couple of bucks for a movie ticket. Minors had to be accompanied by an adult, completely cutting out the middle school crowd, which is the worst demographic of people to share of a theater with since they're basically just there to loiter and socialize. Honestly, that age group is pretty much the most unpleasant thing about society in general. Having worked with the public for a long time, I'd sincerely prefer to deal with a bus load of inmates or special needs adults as opposed to a small group of pre-teens.

I binged Season 2 over the weekend and loved it, now I'm eager to start Season 3. I'm glad everyone seems to be digging it.

A theater in a neighboring town was bought out by Cinemark, which is one of those recliner/lounger chains where you pick your seat ahead of time. Luckily, this luxury seems to come at no extra cost, with extra cheap pricing on matinees. I've yet to run into any obnoxious people and was impressed at a respectfully calm family with four kids who sat in front of me during Kong: Skull Island. Could just be luck, though. I'm well overdue for a noisy asshole.

What's funny about my Kong experience, despite being in a near empty theater and being forced to choose our seats ahead of time, was that two old women decided that they'd sit right next to me and my friend on an otherwise empty row. It ended up being fun as one woman in particular was a lively old coot who clearly loved Godzilla. There's nothing like an eccentric grandma-type who can shoot the breeze with you about Mothra and Ghidora. I made sure they knew to stay after the credits.

I really enjoy the slow burn of it all. It's not obligated to give us thrills like Breaking Bad, so it really lets us soak in these characters and their methods. But I'm with you on worrying about the show's longevity. It's definitely not something that could go on indefinitely, and wouldn't make sense to end up with more content than its parent series. And from a creative team that happens to be known for their attention to detail, it's very strange that Mike's granddaughter is perpetually ten years old.

I'm not much for Anime but really enjoyed the Attack on Titan show. The Titans are wonderfully creepy. What's with anime and filler, though? There's a three episode arc devoted to one character moving a boulder.

DeschainChuck's endgame seems to be to get Jimmy disbarred because on the surface Chuck doesn't like his conning ways but may be due to a deeper sibling rivalry/jealousy thing as we've seen in previous seasons. If Chuck succeeds I'm guessing it's what drives Jimmy to start practicing law under the Saul Goodman alias.

But can you do that? Set up shop, in the same town, under a new name, after being disbarred?

I feel like it's already a given that Jimmy will win. The question is how, and at what cost? I'm also wondering how Gus and Mike are going to turn Hector into everyone's favorite mute. Will it be intentional, or some Ted Beneke shit?
