Re: Netflix

I watched Kubo and the Two Strings with my son yesterday, visually impressive, but slightly predictable....for me. Not so much for my son who at first wasn't into it but by the end wanted to watch it a second time. Kubo might be a little scary children 5 and under. I can see that. Not knowing much ...

Re: MOVIES: Indiana Jones

Man, Tesla, you were always an acquired taste back in the day on the old boards, but wow....you've evolved into full-out GET OFF MY LAWN mode these days. The Last Crusade barely tolerable? Most of Spielberg's filmography is drivel? Good lord, man. The rate at which you trash nearly every film/show m...

Re: [TV] Arrowverse

I haven't missed an episode of The Flash. The first season was beyond phenomenal, but sadly it has gone steadily downhill since. I still dig it, but this current season needs to wrap up in a extremely satisfying way for me to blindly commit to season 4. The other shows....well, I've seen a handful o...

Considering he wrote it all in the a month, he did a fantastic job.
That he did, and you beat me to it. ;)

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Michael Giacchino's scores for the Star Trek movies really didn't do much for me and when I first read that he was to be the composer for R1, I wasn't too excited, but I must say that Giacchino's piece for the most emotional scene in the movie really is beautiful and effective, like most of his sco...

Re: Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Yes, very much looking forward to next Tuesday. Of course, with Mrs. Rollafett being off that night as well, I won't get a chance to dive in until the following night, and even then it won't be until after I get Rollafett Jr. to bed.

Re: Star Wars Episode V The Empire Strikes Back

Don't know beef from anything about Bodhi 'cause I haven't seen Rogue One yet. However, in ESB, it was Rogue Squadron, all the speeder crews had Rogue numbers, and, when they went against the Imperial Walkers, Luke was "Rogue Leader." Now, maybe that can be retconned to be a naming in honor of the ...

Re: Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith

Actually doctors do acknowledge dying from a broken heart. It usually happens to couples who have had long stable loving relationships and often passes away within a month. The grieving places a strain on the body. Or a better, more recent example, may be Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds. A couple...

Re: Last Movie Watched

Doctor Strange . Not bad. Not great, but not bad. It reminded me of certain portions of Batman Begins , really. And Stephen Strange seemed almost like a cross between Christian Bale's Batman/Bruce Wayne and Chris Pratt's Peter Quill. Cumberbatch's accent also needs a little work. Not sure why they ...

Re: Last Television Show Watched

Twin Peaks, 4 episodes from season 2. Mrs. Rollafett had to talk me into watching this years ago, and I didn't regret it. Now, a new season is fast approaching on Showtime and we want to refresh our memories prior to. It's still good, but good lord, is the pacing flat out glacial. I've had to fight ...

Re: Netflix

First post on the NEW Galactic Sentate! WooHoo!!! Anyways, for me... - Daredevil - Jessica Jones - Luke Cage - Sigh....Iron Fist....like pretty much everyone else who watched it, I cannot find much redeeming value in this show. SO far below the quality of the previous Marvel shows, and I wasn't even...
