How much for measles?

I'm sure they could make up all sorts of stuff that could be interesting.  Indy 2 was good enough when they used non-Christian relics. 

Indy 4 was just an uninteresting relic, or at least the story was told poorly.

They could do Egyptian relics, Asian relics, etc.

Heck, look how cool the intro to Raiders was when they were looking for the gold idol that didn't even have mystical powers.  Just a well told mini-adventure to capture an archaeological prize while attempting to not get shot with a poison dart.

I think Chris Pratt might be decent in this role.  Less interested in Bradley Cooper.  I thought Pratt did a good job in Guardians of the Galaxy.

I know it feels "wrong" to have someone other than Harrison Ford play Indy, but I think the character is great and the story lines are fairly endless (assuming they're done well).

I look at this kind of like the James Bond series.  Should they have ended the Bond series after Sean Connery stopped being bond in 1971?  I still think he is the best of all the actors to have played Bond, but I've generally enjoyed all of Bond actors and movies.  I think Daniel Craig in particular is very good in that role.

If the Indy movies are well done with a different actor, then I'm all for it.  Harrison Ford was in Indy 4, but that didn't help it be anything other than a really average movie.

Wow, that's a hell of a bomb.

How does it compare with "Howard the Duck"?

Does anyone use the web site It tracks prices on Amazon. Just put in the item you want and it will send you alerts when the item goes below your selected price. It will also show a line graph of price changes.

I just used it for H&R Block Deluxe tax software. It is currently at $27.36.

I use this for Lego sets.  It worked wonders on being able to get sets 30% off for about 18 months.  The past six months though have been different.  Amazon hasn't had good markdowns on Lego.

Still a great tool for getting deals though.

I just deleted this game from my phone the other day.  What a piece of crap.  Its so unstable.  I swear the thing crashed during 75% of the attacks I did, leaving me with no winnings and all my troops are gone.  Very weak.

I wonder with JJ Abrams leading this film if we'll even see much previewed or pre-released merchandise like we've seen in the past from a Lucas led company.

Is there any hint of a Wave 8 in this line?

Saw it yesterday.  I thought it was just meh.  Not bad, but okay.

Too much battle and not enough plot, which I think was the danger of making this book in to three movies.

I agree with the previous comments that LOTR was far superior.  I've watch all of the LOTR movies several times afterwards.

This was entertaining, but I'm not sure I'll ever seek out The Five Armies to watch again.

Clearing out the rest of my unopened Galactic Heroes.  All are near mint carded/boxed.  Let me know if anyone here is interested, otherwise I'll be dumping a lot of these with Toys for Tots at noon on Friday.  We can work out a volume deal if you're interested.

Gone to Toys for Tots.

New Mad Max: Fury Road - Official Theatrical Teaser Trailer

I really, really liked the first three Mad Max movies.  I'm pumped that there is a fourth.  I know they've been trying for 25 years or so to make this. 

I like the new Max, and I think Charlize Theron could be awesome in this movie too.

Has anyone seen the Lego Advent calendars in stock and go on sale lately? 

It seems starting last year there was far less stock of all of the advent calendars.  I didn't find a single one marked down last year, and haven't seen one in stores in weeks.

I've always tried to pick up this year's version on sale to give to the kids the following year, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen again this year.

I think you mean Monica Belluci, she's topping 50 but she is hot as all hell.
I never get tired of watching her in a movie.

You're right on both points.  My bad. 

She is hot as hell, but you don't see too many "old" Bond women.

Looks like the young Bond woman is Lea Seydoux
