I think we can agree they were backing everyone but the jerk

Yeah I mean most rules and regulations are basically don’t be a jerk, or don’t be an idiot.

  • don't be a jerk

  • don't be an idiot

  • don't hurt anyone

  • keep your hands to yourself

Like 90% of laws right here

Even the keep your hands to yourself is kind of covered by the top three.

Directors of Daniel Craig James Bond Movies in chronological order

Martin Campbell (Casino Royale)

Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace)

Sam Mendes (Skyfall and SPECTRE)

Which of these were fresh young directors needing attention?

see more

At the time Marc had only did indie hits stranger than fiction and monsters ball, finding neverland was a pretty big movie but wasn’t a genre movie. His professional filming career at the time was eight years long which is not very long at all certainly when all your films have been dramas up until then.

Cabin in the woods. Everyone dies because people are selfish. Just like in the real world.

I was confused why all the people dying in the underground wouldn’t count as a sacrifice. I like the movie but that never made sense to me.

WE were the old gods. And we were not appeased. When Weaver says how long they have left, that is how long the movie had left in run time.

The audience are the ones who demand the sacrifice, and the ones who destroy the world or continue it. Not good enough means no sequel and therefore the end of the world.

They didn't survive, but we can make them suffer over and over again by choosing to watch the movie.

Pretty brilliant, and so few people seem to understand that the movie was literally trying to appease the audience. Because that is why the movie exists. For us.

Oh I get why thematically but straight story wise it never made sense to me that a randomly assigned person had to be killed than say the people who died in the outbreak certainly some fit the role.

Potential Hobo highway, if I was a hobo in a colder state id just walk south to warmer temps for winter, and go north in summer.. Like a hobo migration. Just spend some money on a knife and flint, use that to live off the land during my journey. Also way easier than the AT which isn't to hobo friendly due to the amount of effort and prep involved.

see more

Fun fact a hobo is a migrant worker or homeless vagrant as opposed to a tramp who will only work when he is forced to, or a bum who does not at all.

Not quite but their demises walk hand in hand with the themes of the movie. Spoilers of course Borden is two men pretending to be one and as dedicated as they are it never quite fits one loved his wife, one loves Scarlet Johansson one tied the knots that killed Angier’s wife the other felt regret for it as he is the one who shows up at the funeral. In his case the “Evil” Borden dies in the same fashion as his biggest failure/biggest sacrifice the death of the woman his brother loved. Angier kills himself the first time he demonstrated the last teleportation for the theater owner.(not when he shot his clone when first trying out the machine, the gun was next to where he was not near where the clone appears across the room) but to his character and unlike Borden he continually kills the “original” version of himself and the copy goes on. Angier himself has become a copy of a copy of a copy and no longer resembles the man at the beginning of the film. This is shown when looking at Borden’s notes and says “ I don’t care about my wife I care about his secret” before realizing what he said and coming back to himself at the end of the scene. This is the turning point where he can still come back but in the end revenge consumes him and he literally destroys himself, over and over.

Edit: in the very end Angier (who’s name keeps getting auto corrected to angrier which I find funny) is killed how he kills the first clone of himself, his own greatest failure/the moment it is too late for the character, by being shot to death.

You do know a 40 hour a week job gives you way more free time than supporting yourself while earning a degree right. Even a light semester of 12 credit hours and about 20 hours a week working is well over 40 hours after homework and labs.

I had a similar situation later in college I would never want to go back to it. My life is so much better now

OTOH

After four films as 007, British actor says if he did reprise role, ‘it would be only for the money’

"I don't like it but I'll do it if you pay me" doesn't make for a very good headline.

I think his return has more to do with the tepid response to Spectre. If Spectre was a home run he would have definitely walked away. Danny Boyle can’t hurt things either. And also the money, it’s a lot of money.

Honestly, obviously he couldn't cash that in right now because that isn't how stocks work but he still has that wealth. Sure he couldn't spend it on a new yacht but he could use that "money" to pay his workers more.

see more

That’s also not how stocks work. Beyond the IPO the increase in stock price does not go to the company itself and remains unrealized until it’s sold off by the owner, who’s value that belongs to. The cash isn’t real and it doesn’t belong to amazon.

That’s because it IS shit.

Why would the aliens from Signs visit a planet that's covered in mostly water if they're "allergic" to water? Even just running around corn-fields at night, surely there's condensation on the corn stalks from the temperature dropping below the dew point at night.

I know the popular they were demons fan theory but I always thought the aliens came as a grab job preempting an invasion. Literally came to Earth to grab a bunch of humans for study and see if the planet is worth invading or stealing from.

Read his IMDb page, just because he hasn’t had a film financed by Hollywood since 1977 doesn’t mean he hasn’t worked with some big Hollywood stars, and big Hollywood stars are what sells a movie. Nearly every one of his films since 1977 has been distributed and screened all over America

I doubt James Gunn is done making films, I doubt he’s done making films for the umbrella Corp that is Disney. He’s just removed from Marvel, I wouldn’t be surprised if he directed a Fox R rated movie in the future.

Unless, I dunno, Disney buys Fox.

No I mean under Disney. Like I said I don’t think it’s barred him for ever working for Disney just not the PG-13 friendly Marvel property.

I believe you can get it anytime (pre-existing conditions probably excluded) but it is cheaper when the pet is young.

I was denied for my older dog and adopted dog because they could not determine his age. So not all the time.

I like it for what it is? A starting power rack that aligns with my goals. It’s rated for 800lb I have 400lbs mounted on the side and do pull-ups (I’m 200 pounds) with no sign of problems. Pretty solid feel after I bought Titan Olympic weight holder for 2x2 power racks, and mounted my weight on the bottom. The shipping however is a god damn nightmare. The bench came a little late but the rack came a week and a half late with a box beat to Hell. There was a nut, bolt and two washers missing because the accesories package was ripped inside and there was a slight dent in the frame but that didn’t effect the stability of the rack itself. By complaining to amazon I got a couple of months of free prime and a percentage off the product, not too bad.

Not preparing a speech. I thought I'd just go up, thank everyone for coming and sit back down. Short and sweet, get it out the way. That's exactly what I did, without mentioning my parents or my wife.

I didn’t give a speech at all and never really thought about it until reading your comment. I figured my brother gave a speech my sister in law, both our parents and family friend gave a blessing. I thought it was enough talking I thanked people personally.

In Disney World Epcot and Epcot world showcase were originally planned to be a permanent worlds fair. Future world had pavilions sponsored by big companies to showcase aspects of the coming future, Ie. Gm presenting the world of motion a dark ride to showcase how we used to travel and how we will travel in the future. The world showcase sponsored by the very countries they represent was to show aspects of different cultures from around the world. This was stated very early to be a permanent worlds fair. However we can see that the popularity for such a thing has wained as Disney is injecting their properties into the pavilions in Epcot.

Epcot is by far the best park of Disney in my opinion, but my wife and I had an argument about the Elsa Frozen ride being there. I didn’t think it belonged, because Epcot is supposed to be more of a view of different parts of the world and not fairytale characters.

see more

I think it’s a fair opinion however the vast amount of people prefer the characters and Disney is in the business of mass appeal. I hate to inform you but more characters are on their way, France is going to have a Ratatouille ride that is ported from the one in Euro Disney, elements of Coco will be inserted in the Mexico ride, Mary Poppins Meet and greet is coming to England and the biggest break from the old formula is the Guardians of the Galaxy show coaster replacing the universe of energy ride.

I don’t necessarily disagree with you but this is what’s happening because the numbers for Epcot were faltering so much. We could always still drink around the world, they can’t take that away from us.

I have never learned how to ride a bike.

When people say "this will be as easy as riding a bike" my brain always immediately thinks "yikes".

I just learned how to ride a bike last week and I’m 35 years old. It feels great to learn new things and to feel myself getting more skill as I practice.

I also can't ride a bike, and I'm 25. The problem is feeling like an idiot wobbling and falling off a bike as a fully grown man while children ride past me.

Also I have a car

I’m 35 years old and I just learned how to ride a bike last week. It’s never too late to learn new things and you should never give into the fear of looking like an idiot. You will miss out on many of life’s experiences if you’re too afraid to try.

When Broadway theaters have a 1500 seat capacity and Disney Florida has like 330,000, the scale is a bit off.

Also a broadway show lasts 2 1/2 hours or so while Disney’s parks are available for 12-13 hours a day many productions running constantly throughout the day rides and many different forms of entertainment. It cost me 170 dollars to see my fair lady it would cost me 120 dollars to be in the parks for a full day.

I see you fast through the daylight hours

IIRC if you look at the average life-expectancy increase from the recommended amount of daily exercise, it is actually a net gain.

Also you are also in a better shape to enjoy that time.
