Discover the Force / Movie Heroes / Re: Movie Heroes Battle Packs

I said before this line launched that how that movie does will be very telling of this line's future, and I think the movie has done worse than they anticipated.
Not to beat a dead horse, but I think TPM3D did pretty much what they projected it would.  The BD is already planned for spring, so it doesn't sound like they expected this to sit in theaters for months and months...

TPM was not projected to be #1 at the box office.  It is not a first-run film, it is not on as many screens (as Journey 2) and it is critically maligned.  I have read that TPM grossed just around what they projected it to.

That IS awesome.  LOL!

Dude, TPM did not "basically flop" It's the 5th highest money making film of all time.  It sold a sh#t ton of product.  The problem was that Hasbro and everyone thought it would sell a double-sh#t ton.

Quoted for truth.  Even this re-release did as good as they projected, better than the last 3D makeover, Disney's Beauty and the Beast.  That said, this toy will languish on shelves.

I read that too.  I don't think he makes a case, but he does bring up a few interesting points.

Went to see this on Friday.  I liked the 3D.  To me, the "in your face!" stuff is gimmicky 3d whereas using the technology to add depth to a scene works better, IMO at least.  I am in the minority of people that like this film.

AC is going "eeew!" in his mind.

This trailer has turned me around on this film a bit.  I did not like the casting of Garfield as Parker, but he seems to fit the bill, at least in this trailer.

I read once that one F-bomb gets a film a PG-13 rating, and two is an automatic R.  Not sure if that holds water.

Total non-story.  However, she's right.  Welker catches that pass, then the Patriots win.  Just like 07, it took a dropped pass and a miraculous play for NY to win (this is not a knock on NY).  All I keep thinking about is "what if" Gronkowski hadn't been injured...

I am watching for a S2 marathon, so if anyone catches wind of it, a head's up here would be super-appreciated!

The show returns February 12th.  I would expect a marathon all day.
I searched my cable company's guide, including their iPad app, to no avail.  The AMC website shows a marathon immediately preceding the new episodes on 2/12  The mini-marathon starts at 1:30PM.  Season one airs the night before for those wishing to catch up on all 13 episodes.  Thanks for the advice, Matt!

I think this tops my "Most Anticipated" list for the year.  I have been waiting 30 years for this movie.  It looks awesome, and I love Joss' work.  Can't wait!

Little known fact, Gasgano Never Talked.

when a crowd of 2+ people walk side by side and don't allow any room for people walking in the other direction.

Ugh, that pisses me off too.  If there are four of you, then walk 2x2 down the hallway and leave some room dammit.  You don't have to be 4across, arm-in-arm like you're skipping down the friggin' yellow brick road or something.   ::)

This!  Also, don't walk in the door of Target or Walmart or the grocery store and then stop dead in the entrance and try to figure out where you're going.  I can't tell you how many times I've almost run over someone from behind because they walk in the door and just stop.

Like Jman said, one of these days I'm going to just start pushing people out of my way.  I have a feeling that the first time I find myself standing over some Cornell ******bag, who is face down in the Target entrace with my boot on his neck, it's going to be the happiest day I've ever had.


This one is right near the top of my list.  God does this irritate me!
