That's not Amy Adam's real face, is it?

“Hello, I'm Leonard Nimoy. The following tale of alien encounters is true. By true, I mean...false. It's all lies. But they're entertaining lies, and in the end, isn't that the truth?

The answer is no.”

Anyone watched Siren?  What is like, as a tv show?  Is it geared toward teenagers like the Vampire Diaries, The Originals, etc, or is it a targeting a more mature audience?

Man, Three Billboards is awesome stoned.  I was blubbering like a baby.

Ditched the 3rd reel, which I think kind of wanders.
I'm up $25 on DGuller.

The Skeleton Twins. Kristen Wiig and gay Bill Hader are twins with issues. Very good low-key drama. And of course Kristen Wiig is so fucking hot.
You are gay.

Watched Bumblebee, the latest in the robot-punching movies, but this one wasn't by Michael Bay and has the girl from True Grit in it. Was pretty entertaining. 7.5/10 John Hughes Horse-Girl Movie.

The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.

I heard the Cybertronian Wars scenes are amazing nostalgia gems for those who loved the original toys/series.  I hadn't watched or read anything about it till a few days ago.  The thought of a Michael Bay free Transformers movie appeals to me.  I think I might actually try to catch in in the theaters.  It seems like a movie that would lend itself to the big screen/sound system experience.  Did you watch the regular or 3d version?  (Is there a 3d version?)
"Love to my country actuates my present conduct, however it may appear inconsistent to the world, who very seldom judge right of any man's actions."

"...this was a bitter tormented soul, a sinner who mocked both gods and men. He served but found no pride in service. He fought but took no joy in victory. He drank, to drown his pain in a sea of wine. He did not love, nor was he loved himself."

My conscience hath a thousand several tongues,
And every tongue brings in a several tale,
And every tale condemns me for a villain.
Richard III, 5. 3

Last Days of Stalin sure was a fun movie.  I wished it went on for another hour.

I think the world could have done without a 70’s Stalin.

It was barely OK in the end, but instantly forgettable.

 :huh: It was one of the best movies of 2016.
