MCU: Most Successful Franchise in US History - Freauxzen
Not worldwide, but interesting nonetheless: [quote]Spider-Man, Shrek, The Lord of the Rings, Batman, James Bond, Star Wars and Harry Potter all have one thing in common. Their films have grossed less money at the domestic box office than the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But then, in looking at thin...

Oh the Academy Awards, shall you shower us with your self-interest and pageantry that we may bask int he glory of fun film conversations.

Chuck Season 5 SPOILERS - Freauxzen
Might be the worst season of a close to great show. The whole season, just never knew what they wanted it to be. Ended in a TERRIBLE way for the overall tone of the series. Wasted their best villain for some 4-episode villain with a terrible arc that led to the bad ending. Just bad all around....

Completed: The Shield - FINAL THOUGHTS (Spoilers) - Freauxzen
Starting my watch of the Shield, I hear it's good. By Episode 3, it's quite good, pretty enjoyable, I'm hoping the bigger arc gets more exciting, otherwise there are better cop procedurals. At least now. Update: Yeah that's right, Season 4 if just under 2 weeks. I don't watch this show at...

Fun with Data and Trends: Movie/TV Edition - Freauxzen
What would be some good trends to try and find in film and/or television (other than the PCU research project)?

The Year of Parity: 2013 - Freauxzen
Did anyone find this year to be remarkably balanced across the board?

Top 200 Movies We Agree Don't Suck: 2013 Edition - Freauxzen
It exists! True story is, I lost the first run of this somewhere in the ether. For two reasons: I usually do this on Google Docs, and for some reason, their tracking actually sucks.

Julius Thomas for Torrey Smith? - Freauxzen
I would be getting Thomas and giving up Smith. Mostly standard scoring. I've grown to really like Smith's consistency at WR, so I'm hard pressed to do it, even though I feel I should. I still have Cruz and Megatron at the other spots, so I'm pretty comfortable with 2 WR1s. Pretty big dropo...
