  1. A Message For Everyone:

    TCW vs. Rebels debates are not allowed in the Television forum. As in, discussions that descend into TCW/Rebels (or any show vs any other show) bashing/gushing will be subject to Mod action. Contrasting the themes, story lines, characters, etc. between the shows is allowed (welcomed, even). "Versus" debates/arguments, however, are a deal-breaker.

    What up y'all. DLT back in full effect, or something like that. I randomly stopped posting because I started a YouTube show, but I feel like it's pretty well on its feet and I don't feel the same time pressure as I did before so I'm back. I won't be here as much as before since it's still very time consuming...and TCW is over...but I'm back. If anyone happens to be interested, I'm proud to say after only a few months at it and no money for paid advertising I'm over 1,600 views right now. The show is all about Pennsylvania state politics and is from a left-wing perspective. I know there are some people interested in politics here; if you remember Keith Olbermann hopefully you remember his Worst Persons in the World segment, I do a homage to that called the Worst Pennsylvanians of the Week that allows for a bit of comedy. http://counterpointpa.org/

    Also I can't believe I posted that without mentioning that I really couldn't have started the show without a ton of logistical help in various areas from none other than our own Seerow.

    I would watch but I'm afraid most of it would go over my head. Nice to see you again, though.

    Hey DLT. Looks like you've put a lot of work into your site. I love the background music in the Worst Pennsylvanians segment. XD Keep up the good work. I'll probably watch a good amount, since I'm more often liberal than not.[face_flag]

    But back on the subject of local commercials, here's a spectacularly horrendous local ad that they usually play in the theaters around here during lull time between movies, but rarely on TV.

    This video of a guy doing some "Jedi freerunning" in Tatooine Utah's Goblin Valley is pretty cool:



    Don't try this at home!

    Ha, priceless! Oh the horrible **** my dogs have eaten over the years, including actual ****. :p

    My moment of hilarity today came from a Sony warranty doc. I got a new pair of headphones, and decided to check out the warranty info when I came across this gem-

    "[limited warranty] does not cover product issues caused by any other reason, including but not limited to product issues due to commercial use, acts of God, misuse...."

    I can just see the excuses they've heard regarding broken products that warranted that specific part of the clause. XD

    Those guys definitely need to be called upon to play future SW film extras.

    Even if they're not as good as the Star Wars Kid.

    I just watched X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the first X-Men. I don't know why everyone said Origins was terrible, I thought it was really good, and X-Men was alright. The first fight scene at the start when Wade used his swords to deflect all of those bullets was insane! I didn't like how they turned Wade into Weapon XI, because it was so weird and it would've been better if he's still been a good guy that was working with Wolverine.

    Wow... Just as I was typing this I found out that Wade becomes Deadpool! I'm guessing most people already know that, but it's surprising. I just don't see how he could turn into a hero after what he became.

    I also just watched Now You See Me, and it was way better than I expected it to be. Great storyline with a huge shock at the end, and Mark Ruffalo was great, he's an awesome actor. I'd give it an 8/10.

    Here's an updated list of my movie ratings so far this year:

    1. Furious 6 - 10
    2. G.I. Joe: Retaliation - 9.5
    3. Star Trek: Into Darkness - 9
    4. The Wolverine - 8.5
    5. Gangster Squad - 8.5
    6. Olympus Has Fallen - 8
    7. Now You See Me - 8
    8. Iron Man 3 - 7.5
    9. The Lone Ranger - 7.5
    10. Pacific Rim - 7
    11. Oblivion - 7
    12. Oz the Great and Powerful - 7
    13. The Internship - 7
    14. Zero Dark Thirty - 6.5
    15. The Hangover Part III - 6
    16. The Impossible - 6
    17. Scary Movie 5 - 6
    18. 21 & Over - 6
    19. This Is the End - 1

    I too liked Gangster Squad. It was like LA Noire: the movie.

    Yeah, the new Star Trek was killer. (The only one on that list I've seen.) I'm psyched (not as psyched as for TCW, but still psyched) for the new Thor movie this year. I loved how there was a ton of the story in Asgard in the first one and I hope it's like that again.

    The director's Alan Taylor from Game of Thrones, and that alone has me excited for Thor: The Dark World.

    Yeah, Thor 2 looks great. But then again, I always like the MCU films. :p

    July alone I saw 4 movies in the theater.

    The Way Way Back- A nice little film (filmed in the town right next to me to boot!) The lead actor was great, as was Sam Rockwell. It was interesting seeing Steve Carell playing such an unlikable character too.
    Pacific Rim- ****ing awesome film. The leads were decent, but the supporting cast really stole the show, especially Charlie Day and Idris Elba. And it looked amazing. Del Toro did not disappoint with his premise of giant mecha fighting Cthulhu-esque monsters. Definitely my favorite movie this year so far. :D
    The Conjuring- Pretty decent horror flick. Nothing amazing, but it didn't suck either.
    The Wolverine- Pretty good. A lot better than Origins, but it felt short. I'd almost say the mid-credits teaser was the best part of the entire movie. But there were some really good action parts as well.
    42- Saw this On Demand. Harrison Ford was great, easily the best performance he's given in over 20 years. The guy playing Robinson was good too. The script was good, lots of good humor as well as good portrayals of racism at the time.

    Yeah, the new Thor movie looks great! I can't wait to see Thor and Loki working together, but something tells me that won't work out too well.

    If the film ended in them brohugging and air-fiving..... I fear I will be forced to refrain from ever venturing on Marvel-related message boards again. The Thoki shipping is bad enough as it is......................
