You're right. I guess this was just the Regular Thinker.

Re: (SPOILERS) Infinity War and Beyond (Marvel Thread)

I think I'm enjoying analysis of Infinity War more than I enjoyed the movie itself. Here's one by somebody named PatrickG01: Into the Endgame: ‘Infinity War’ Analysis Lots of good thematic analysis. Plus, the idea that the reason Cap, Thor, and Black Widow got makeovers is so that we'll be able to t...

Re: A take so hot I think I got singed reading it.

This brings me back to why I didn't like the latest season of The Flash: the Mad Thinker's whole characterization revolves around him constantly taunting everybody else about how smart he is. But the other shoe never drops, and nobody ever gets around to pointing out that geniuses don't actually go ...

Re: Thundercats

I have no idea what video it was, but Arin told a story once on Game Grumps about being so impressed with the kind of color balance they achieved in Thundercats '11 that he reached out to the lead animator for professional advice, and got a lot of subtle stumping for a job in response. It clearly b...

Re: (SPOILERS) Infinity War and Beyond (Marvel Thread)

I liked how they just immediately got Thanos vs Hulk out of the way. I didn't. "Bad guy shows up and immediately kicks the ass of the toughest superhero to show how much of a badass he is" is such a lazy cliche. And they had him beat up Hulk and Thor in the first five minutes. It was fine...

Agreed, but the numbers also don't add up to 100%.

Yeah, even if you assume all of those numbers ended in ".5" and they rounded down, that would still only get you to 99.5.

Re: Thundercats

...I mean, I'll give this thing a chance. It's possible it might not suck. Sure, I'm not sold on the style, the tone, or the man-bun. But there really is some loving attention to detail in there. That intro is pleasingly kinetic and does a solid job of summarizing the first few episodes of TOS (and ...

Re: TV Series On The Television

Lucifer has also been cancelled. I'm okay with it ending where it did, but there's a campaign to bring it back.

Maybe CW will take it. They could use another show based on a DC comic; they only have six.

A new Alamo Drafthouse just opened in Tempe. (Or, officially, the grand opening is next Thursday. But they're running a training week right now, with discounts on food while the staff learns the ropes.)

Re: Let's all go to the movies~

I, Tonya is great, part white-trash Greek tragedy and part character-based absurdist comedy. The material is great (and sometimes postmodern; it tells us upfront that this story is being told by unreliable narrators, and occasionally reminds us by having the characters directly address the camera an...
