37% ouch. Only 10% more than BvS.

I was hoping for a substantial jump, maybe low 60's or 70's.

meh.

MaxRennC'mon, Red. If you're out there, give us your insight.

Would expect a special guest appearance if it were Man of Steel 2, but it's an ensemble cast and Superman will prob only show up for 10 minutes @ the end.

Takoma1There is a running joke in The Muppet Movie where one character will scream "That's a myth! A myth!" and then a woman with a lisp will appear and answer "Yeth?". For the longest time I thought she was just responding to the "th" sound at the end of the word. Then, on like my twelfth viewing I was like "Myth sounds like 'miss' with a lisp!!!!". A revelation for my 10 year old self.

At the end of Ace Ventura, when he turns the detective around to reveal she's actually a man, I totally did not understand that he just had tucked his penis. I thought that the idea was that he'd undergone sex change surgery but kept his penis and had it moved to the back of his body. I found this very, very confusing. The strong (incredibly homophobic!) reaction of all the men led me to believe they'd had sex with the character which was why they were so disgusted.

I watched the flick with my younger brother - As a 13 year old I understood the joke. As a 7 years old, he thought she'd crapped her pants. I suppose the joke sort of works both ways. haha.

Baadrone1 of the 2 post credit scenes has leaked online. Based on that scene and the trailers I predict somewhere in the 50-70% range.

wonders how one post credit scene can dictate the quality of a film that came before it...
Recently the one from Ragnorok, was terrible, (the 2nd scene with Goldblum) - was so annoyed I waited the length of the credits to see it, but didnt ruin the overall film for me.

Death Proof
88 Miles Per HourAnother one for Ghostbusters - Recently saw it again and noticed Ray is eating some stay puft marshmallows earlier in the movie, forget which scene but the bag is definitely there.

Dana has a bag of them, too. When she puts her groceries on the counter and the eggs start exploding.
Did you ever notice that the image on the monitor when they have the possessed Louis hooked up to it shows a Terror Dog instead of a human head?

the terror dog scene is more obvious - but yes, thats the scene I was referring too - Dana had them on her counter when Peter inspects her apartment.

Chief WibiwokeBased on the mildly positive early responses, I'd say it ends up somewhere in the high 60's.

my prediction as well. Not expecting Wonder Woman number's - but so long as it washes the taste from BvS then cool.

78% for Jason Momoa

Momoa looks to be the best thing about it.

I suspect if this deal goes through, the more adult properties like Deadpool and Logan etc, will be exclusives to the streaming service they've announced. Basing this solely on how they've handled Daredevil and Punisher.

That is amazing.

Although on a side note, I like to think that Jeff Goldblum dresses like that in real life and rides around on a scooter.

It really is - Not sure if Blanchett was just playing up the part of not happy to be there, or if she really wasnt happy to be there, haha.

Movie was bonkers - Glad they went all out with it instead of making it serious like its predecessors. Perfect use of Immigrant Song. PERFECT.

One thing I noticed, in the teaser trailer it shows Hela destroying the hammer in an Urban area, then in the movie that scene occurred on the hill top - The other thing I noticed is her hair looked differently in certain scenes, so was wondering if they did any kind of reshoots on this.

One thing that did bother me is Mark Ruffalos performance - I get this movie wasnt really going for serious, but when he first turns into Banner after being the Hulk for so long his performance came off as overly goofy and not in a good way.

The 2nd post credits scene with Goldblum was totally useless. Why bother throwing it in there at all?

Other than those few minor things, damn it was fun to watch.

Gotta go with Jason on this one. Freddy was menacing but was kind of a wimp when you realize how to beat him.
also there's no better horror movie kill than this.

88 Miles Per HourI thought the 2nd episode was rather boring considering all the action scenes. The other thing that bothered me is, how they suddenly played up that Jesus has a conscience.

Morgan on the other hand, holy shit...give that man his own zombie hunter show.

It was boring despite all the shooting and all Ezekiel's scenery chewing and then back to the shooting and then some manufactured drama between Tara and Jesus and fuck it, let's have some more shooting. And as so often happens on this show characters do a complete 180 from their previous persona and belief system according to whatever the writers have come up with. Morgan was a pacifist and now he's John Wick? Don't get me wrong though, I prefer this Morgan but how about investing in some actual development and evolution and not this BS shorthand. I liked Rick's stuff (and the callback to year 1 of all things!) but it looks like this season is going to be exactly what a lot people were worrying it would be.


The Morgan arc feels reasonable to me. There were a few episodes last season that established his 'code' - and I think it was the S7 finale where he decides that his code no longer works in the world he lives in. Jesus by comparison, wasn't set up properly to have a moral code, other than the hint given by his name. That its taken him so long to speak up about it is another story. You figure that while all this planning was going on regarding the impending war with the Saviors he'd have said something to Rick or Maggie like, hey, I'm not cool with randomly murdering people.

And while we're on the subject of poor character arcs. Tara is the new Carol. Last season she barely held it together, and suddenly she's head shotting saviors with a silencer and making trip bombs. But Carols arc felt more organic, Tara's is wtf.

Robin McDonaldAfter a year of ?building up some respect for the father I lost a lot of it for the clumsy unintelligent way he went about his rescue. If there is anything that defines Rick's people is they have learned to be smart and capable. ?He could have drove closer or called out to him.


And for the second time in the episode I don't understand why Neegan was not shot on sight. He's out in the open bragging his ass off and threatening their doom. My biological imperative would have kicked in immediately the same as if I saw a tiger or Hannibal Lecter coming towards me. Just shoot. I am not going to try to survive for hours in a portable office with Neegan.


Yeah, I get that Rick was going for a bit of diplomacy but it was a little grating that he didn't just shoot him on site. Gabriel being a priest and all I can understand not wanting to shoot him in the trailer.

I thought the 2nd episode was rather boring considering all the action scenes. The other thing that bothered me is, how they suddenly played up that Jesus has a conscience.

If I remember correctly the guy has already killed a bunch of people hasnt he, so seems rather odd that he'd suddenly develop mixed feelings about gunning down Neegans crew.

Morgan on the other hand, holy shit...give that man his own zombie hunter show.

Robin McDonaldI was too busy with work to watch. Not sure when I will get to but I'm looking forward to it.
I think Walking Dead usually opens with a huge epic sort of episode or pair of episodes then quiets down a bit.?
Did it do that last night?

Yes. the premiere was pretty much all fighting. The preview implies the 'war' with Neegan will be the crux of S8. Cant imagine every single moment of each episode will be them fighting so there will most likely be slower parts.
There will prob be some good scenes with
SPOILERS
2 characters who are trapped together.?
