Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Official Movie Thread
« on: April 2, 2018, 03:27 PM »
I'm on the fence about Ready Player One...  I loved the book so much and the movie makes many significant changes.  Having said that... it all circles back to the same place.  After thinking about the movie, I understand why the changed things they way they did.  It probably works better for the movie format but there were things in the book that I really wanted to see on the big screen. 

I was an enjoyable movie and my son (who hadn't read the book) liked it a lot.

Anyone else make it through the whole Season of Discovery? Overall I enjoyed it but I don't want to give away anything too spoilery if folks are waiting for other means to consume the content.

Say, do you like chocolate? Do you like peanut butter? Do you like Cheerios? If so, give Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios a try.

Hmmm... I've not heard of this Cheerio iteration... I will have to check it out.

My kids now swear by Krave cereal... its a chocolate / graham cracker cereal.  They eat dry, right of the the box as a snack these days.

Yep, I just assumed it would be Abraham, especially with Fear moving towards Houston. Well, I love Lennie James so hopefully it will be a good cross-over however they weave it together.

Anyone else stick with CBS All-access for Star Trek Discovery?  Mid-season finale aired last night.  I really enjoyed these first 9 episodes.  Probably my favorite show that I'm currently watching.  It helped that we already invested in the CBS All-access for some of the other content.

Loved Season 2... probably not quite as much as Season 1 but itís really close. I like it felt like it focused a bit more on Dustin and Lucas.

Finally finsihed watching the finale... Yes, this season has been much better.  Interesting to see that they managed to destroy two viable "home bases" in half a season  ;D  I'm actually reasonably interested to see how everyone gets back together now.

Anyone still watching this show?  I've found this half season to be a little better than the past seasons but still nothing like "appointment viewing".  I am suprised by the dumb choices the characters keep making but lets face it... that's a hallmark of the Walking Dead franchises.

I watched episode one this morning. I liked it for what it's worth. We already subscribe to CBS All access (my family has an unnatural obsession with Big Brother and the whole back catalog of other shows, like Amazing Race and Survivor), So I'll continue to watch. I doubt I would pay the sub fee if it was just this show.

I really enjoyed last nights episode with the exception of the Gendry/Raven/Dragons showing up so fast issue.  Its a shame there isn't a better way to communicate than Ravens but I'm willing to overlook the "time travel". 

When the Dragons showed up, I couldn't imagine that would be the end of the Night King but I certainly didn't expect the lance throw!  Definitely changes the game for Dany's army.  I did think for a moment when Jon went off all rogue again, he would get a chance to ride his own Dragon.

I sure hope Arya is setting up Littlefinger via the long Con... otherwise, the whole Sansa and Arya storyline is very frustrating.

The giant crossbow is kind of dumb but whatever.

I swear that's the same Crossbow that Bard used to kill Smaug.  Its a shame they decided to go down that same path.   I hope Drogon isn't missing a scale on his belly.

I think you have him confused with Jim Ward.

I haven't thought about Jim Ward in years... thanks for the flashback!

:'( Not my favorite Bond, but his movies are still fun to watch and were part of my youth.

I'm going to go with "not the best Bond, but still my favorite Bond".


RIP, Sir Roger Moore.  :'(

Totally with you guys on this one... not the best James Bond but but he was my James Bond.  The first Bond from my youth that I watched and always a favorite.

The end credits were fun too.  The extra scenes were great, but they had some other little bits of animation through all of it as well.  If you watch closely, some of the lines throughout the credits just say "I AM GROOT" then change to the actual name after a few seconds.  Did anyone spot Goldblum's Grandmaster in one of the picture bubbles?  Not even in the Guardians movie, but a nice link to Thor's upcoming flick.

Yea, I caught both of those during the credits roll as well.  Its funny how Marvel has created a way that everyone stays until the last blip of the "reel" is finished.
