My wife and I are re-watching all episodes of The Twilight Zone. That's how refined we are. :badbone:

Nothing wrong with that!  Married with two toddlers and trying to watch twin peaks is a patient task.  In the Lynch mood and watched Lost Highway.   Still took us three evenings. 😴

Right?!  This gif actually reminded me of the first few seasons of  southpark.  Same type of movement achieved.

Oh my god.  I haven't kept up this season.  These gifs are enough.   :magni:

Well....we finished the first episode and I'm so glad this popped up on sk.  I don't frequent many other forums and this group is solid in intelligent criticism.  I am in love.  The characters, which I admit will take time to memorize, are so unique and alive.  The Lynch typical music to the rich landscape. The only dated issue I saw was the roadhouse fight scene.    :ganishka:  Very excited to see where this goes.

Lmao, it is suicidal in that "noose my childhood with a cherry on top" sense.  :slan:  I love the franchise and had no bias or critical opinions of the first four.  Hell, I had to sneak around to watch them when I was younger.  Resurrection came out when I was in 9th grade.  Obviously the first two truly are the meat and bones in the same way the terminator series is.  I went in knowing the reviews were terrible and idk, for me it just didn't do the negative reviews justice.  It was that bad.  Like the ultimate screw you to fans.  Hey, do you like Alien?  Yeah!  Do you like Predator?  Say whuuuu?  We have the ultimate story for you. With the writing power from two iconic storytellers in Uwe Boll and Liefeld, we present...AvP!!!

John, I'm not trying to flip you shit, just that this one really let me down.

There have been days I've thought about checking it out, but I'm afraid the bad taste will be all that's left in my mouth.  I really must have hated the first to not give the second a shot.

Far Cry 5 First Look: A Montana Uprising
<a href="https://youtu.be/Kdaoe4hbMso" target="_blank" class="new_win">https://youtu.be/Kdaoe4hbMso</a>

As much as I'm sick of the divisive states of America, Far Cry 5 has me hyped immediately.  A fresh change for the series was needed and I hope this delivers a great experience.

I must have confused the sprite moving frantically with multiples for each memory, or parts of her ego.

Has anyone brought up the condition of this last sprite or any of them?   I believe this last one will be very weak or even try to get away from the crew.  Especially where we're headed.

Truly amazing.  I can't add much that hasn't been said already, but one thing making me curious is the pace.  We could be at that last piece next episode,  :femto: or perhaps the next few episodes.  Hard to tell.  Our Casca is almost back.

Bruh...Count me in.  https://youtu.be/iIMrFnl5NiA.  Strangely, this Castlevania animation looks a little better than a certain series most recent adaption.  :troll:

lol so you walked out 5 minutes before the end?

I don't remember, but man was that a terrible premise alone.  I can't imagine anyone would have trouble doing better.   I enjoy the alien movies, not saying they're all great or even good, but those are pretty embarrassing.

I walked out of AvP at the "I'm in love with a predator" part of the story.  As if I needed any other reason and there were many.  That movie was so bad that it far surpasses any logical defense.  It needed Chris Hansen to intervene.

I was hoping from the fairly fresh take from the critics that this one would be a surprise.  Judging from the unanimous perspectives on here, I'll wait or just avoid like the vs.

I love Lynch but never got around to watching Twin Peaks.   One of the few shows I want to stream and plan to do so soon.  Heard no spoilers.   I'll stay clear of this topic until I'm done.

Lmao, true true.  I just didn't have my inner critic back then.  That Feldman sound alike is truly cringe worthy.

Bloodborne, Nioh, uncharted 4 also great.  Let's not forget lords of the fallen.  :ganishka:  Zelda is one I want to dive into.  Even if Ninetendo doesn't offer a few exclusives any time soon I could just get a switch for my daughter.... :slan:

Horizon zero dawn completely surprised me.  I'm only six hours in and can be confident in saying this might be the best open world game I've come across.  Keep in mind robots aren't really my bag.  For the few exclusives Sony has this one is going to the top.  Also replaying Code Veronica on dreamcast.  Not aging gracefully and my oh my has dialogue evolved.  :isidro:

What's weird is a few people I work with thought it was too emotional and touchy-feely.  Eh, that wasn't my issue or even issues with this one.  I feel like I'm in the minority for the masses too.  Groot must be too cute or some bullshit.  I'm pretty much completely on the same page you are incantation. This is one of those movies I couldn't even allow my fandom to overcome the shortcomings.

Apart from the :???: spoilers, I've got nothing against the story, I agree with a lot of your points, it's the execution that I didn't like.

I'm gonna assume you played this sometime in the last few years.  I played it the year it came out and thought it was quite amazing, minus the save system.  I wouldn't dive into Berserk until years later.  Assuming you did play it now vs then, that's not a very fair statement considering we're talking the Sega Dreamcast and when many played it early 2000.

Did you even read All Star Superman?

We literally just got one. Don't expect to see it until later this year.

I own All Star Superman.  In fact that's one of the only graphic novels I really didn't enjoy.  Idk, just really don't see the fuss behind it.  Red Son, Earth One, even Death Of over that any day.  Supes really isn't my cup of tea, so there is that.  I'd love to upload a pic of all my graphic novels, but I truly suck at getting that done on here vs the easy way on social media.

Ah c'mon, that was a "teaser."   :ganishka:   Thought there was another convention soon.

Personally, Watchmen is more of the zenith of deconstructionism in comics in general, not so much super hero comics. I'd say that the zenith of super hero comics in a classical sense is All Star Superman.

I can not get behind or understand the raving amazement for All Star Superman.  Of all the critically acclaimed stories, that one has me scratching my head.  I'd take watchmen over that any day of the week.  Even TDKR is better written, though the art is atrocious.   I'd put Kindom Come as the king as far as D.C. Is concerned.

There any news on the next trailer for TLJ?

Guardians Of The Galaxy 2 was ok.  I'm a big fan of this movie tv series Marvel has built the last 10 years, but this one especially is feeling like those late episodes with more filler than even I want before the finale. 

There's a good movie in there, but Gunn writing this solo, too much feels like he tried too hard. Did you like Groot, Rockets quips, the one liners?   Cause this has them doubled up in a way that felt too reminiscent to AOU.  I would say GOTG2 is slightly better than that.  Kurt Russels Ego was great.  The emotions were more feely than the first, but even then over half of the movie gave me that "get on with it" numbing bore.

One thing to note is this takes place soon after the first, and on top of that there is a four year break in the timeline between this movie and the final (I hope) Avengers part1/2.

Wendy's came in with the smug and savage comments. 

I was referring more to how everyone started making fanart.

Hmmmm.   Not what I gathered.  :farnese:
