Long time since we've had a ginger baddie.  :hmm:



Actually the real one kinda looks like Pedro Pascal after a couple of steroid cycles.

Quote from: Admiral Yi on July 09, 2024, 07:23:23 PMMy enthusiasm for Mandalorian is fading.  Pretty formulaic.  Fly to new planet, new cut scene exposition, blast new bad guys, fly away.  Chase scenes!

Yeah, I gave up early in season 2. Andor (sp?) was much better.

I mean - nobody is going to force you to watch anything you don't want to.  I (and I think a lot of other people) thought that Mandalorian Seasons 1-2 were pretty great (the ending to season 2 was pretty epic) - but that season 3 where they undid everything from season 2 it became formulaic.

I thought Gladiator took place in some alternative timeline where the Republic was restored after the death of Commodus in the Colosseum. But here I see the Year of the Five Emperors and the Severans happened anyway. Huh.

I've seen people say Danny McBride would have been a good visual fit.

I am, somehow, less interested in the weight and convolutions of Einstein's brain than in the near certainty that people of equal talent have lived and died in cotton fields and sweatshops.

Hip hop artists Cypress Hill makes 28 year old Simpsons joke come true by booking an act with the London Symphony Orchestra.

No word yet on whether Peter Frampton will be able to make it.

Bailed on Mandalorian, ep 1 of Andor look funky.

Appears to be a conscious policy of Disney to cast plenty of prepubescent kids but not so many 14 to 18 yr olds.  I assume to avoid the creepy factor.

I've gotten free apple TV via barclays. Weird offer but ok (worth a look Brits).
Not sure if there's anything on there I've not already seen bar Silo :hmm:

Silo is worth watching. Quality is a bit up and down but I enjoyed it.

Oh yes! That timeline, where Rome was founded as a republic: forget about Romulus and Remus.  :D

Best part of Gladiator 1: at the end the lady reminiscing about the glory of Rome and the foreign slaves looking all inspired.

Won't be as fun as Cannon sequel of a well-known movie, back in the day.  :D
There was no sequel to Braveheart or Armageddon. So sad! :(

The Senator's dream was to restore the Republic.  That doesn't mean it happened.

The movie ends with Commodus dying in the arena after being slain by his dying mortal enemy.

Five seconds after the film ended, Pertinax rushed down from the stands and announced he was Emperor. Five seconds later he was killed by the Praetorian Guard.
