Jupiter Ascending might be the worst movie I have ever seen - LeonPhelps
It is not even laughably bad. It is just bad. I heard that Eddie Redmayne's handlers were trying to get the release date of this movie pushed back to after the Oscars so it wouldn't hurt his chances of winning for Theory of Everything. Hard to believe he made those two movies in the same year. H...

Madam Secretary - LeonPhelps
I never see a thread on this show. I enjoy watching it and it stays apolitical for the most part. The main character even defended CIA torture in Afghanistan and Iraq...she even ordered it when she was in the CIA. But my biggest complaint is they are too ready to violate the sovereignty of othe...

Does anyone else sometimes actually miss school? - LeonPhelps
I graduated with my masters over 9 years ago, but sometimes I miss the actual learning and test taking part of school. I dominated school and nearly always set the curve. My niece is in college now and comes to me for help. It just reminds me how very easy college is, at least LSU. It has made m...

My barber is retiring and I need recommendations for a new one - LeonPhelps
I have gone to the same barber for 18 years but he is retiring tomorrow at age 80. I need a new barber. I am not interested in a salon. It has probably been 17 years since I even had to say anything to my barber when I sat down. He just gave me the standard hair cut. Any recommendations for...

They really effed up Theory of Everything - LeonPhelps
The title indicates the movie will be about the scientific research of one of the greatest minds in human history. But instead we get this incredibly boring look at the struggles of caring for him. Why is that interesting to anyone?! I finally tapped out half way through when it was clear we we...

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull - LeonPhelps
I do not understand the hate for this movie. It is just a fun movie. I think if it was not an Indiana Jones movie and all of the unattainable expectations that came with after 20 years, it would have been considered a good movie but most haters - just like Superman Returns, another movie I really ...

Do you eat lunch by yourself at a restaurant? If so, where? - LeonPhelps
I work from home and only occasionally meet someone for lunch. When I am not meeting someone for lunch, I usually fix something at home or grab some food from somewhere and bring it back home to eat. But sometimes it is nice to simply get out of the house. It just seems weird to go to a restauran...

Withdrawstgeorge.com sent a petition to my home - LeonPhelps
It says it has me on record as signing the petition to withdraw, which I did, and provides a form to fill in and send back to withdraw my signature. I looked on the form and on the website but the organizers of this effort were too chicken shite to put their phone number anywhere. If you are going ...

Spin-off thread: sent back to 1770 - must establish monarchy or die - LeonPhelps
I posted this in the original thread but it is buried at the bottom of page 8, so I figured I would start another thread because the concept is really interesting to me and I like this twist on it. What if 100,000 people living today were sent back to 1770 with 100 of whatever they last bought an...

Have door-to-door proselytizers ever had any success? - LeonPhelps
2 old nice black ladies in their best Sunday clothes just rang my doorbell to talk to me about the Bible. I am a Christian and have zero interest in this. I cannot imagine a non-Christian even remotely wanting to be bothered at their home to try and be converted. I hate any stranger bothering m...

Am I the only one watching Forever? My new favorite show - LeonPhelps
It is the perfect combination of Castle (format), Sherlock (trope), and Highlander (mythology). And the acting is generally pretty good, at least from the two main guys, played by Mr. Fantastic and the Jeff Goldblum's dad from Independence Day. The flashbacks are great since the main character...

Why does every Bollywood movie have an unrelated dance and song number? - LeonPhelps
Even in the most unlikely movies like Slumdog Millionaire. I enjoyed the first Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, but the trailer for the second shows an elaborate song and dance scene. Why is this necessary? I read this on Wikipedia but it did not explain the why of it. [quote]Bollywood films ha...

How much attention am I supposed to give my dog? - LeonPhelps
I have had a dog for 12 years, my first and last pet I will ever have. She is a good dog generally other than pissing in the house on occasion, especially now that she is 12. I sometimes feel bad that I don't give her enough attention, especially after something like Marley and Me, but she is a do...

Book Board: Favorite biographer? - LeonPhelps
I love me some Ron Chernow and Walter Isaacson. I've read The House of Morgan (about JP Morgan), Titan (John D. Rockefeller), and Alexander Hamilton by Chernow. All excellent. I have read the biographies of Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, and Benjamin Franklin by Isaacson, also all excellent. T...

All the crap I pay with my property taxes - LeonPhelps
Property tax bill came in, and it pisses me off anew every year. I paid almost $1,100. Of that, maybe $460 is something that actually does or could benefit me (police, fire, etc). But I also pay the following that I in no way benefit from or utilize and find it criminal I have to contribute to:...

When does Guardians of the Galaxy get interesting? - LeonPhelps
I am an hour into Guardians of the Galaxy and bored out of my mind. I don't know who I am supposed to root for. This is just a movie about a thief without any exceptional ability trying to turn a profit. I've enjoyed every Marvel movie to date, but those were all heroes doing heroic things. This...

CW's The Flash is simply the remaking of CW's Smallville - LeonPhelps
Has anyone else noticed this? I watched every episode of Smallville and have watched every episode of The Flash to-date. Here are the similarities to me: 1. The "coming" of both superheroes was heralded by a major event - the meteors in Smallville and the particle accelerator explosion in The F...

Manning's passing touchdown streak - the other one - LeonPhelps
Most people are aware that Manning is closing in on Brees's 54 game touchdown streak. Manning is at 46 games now and can break the record in game 16 of this year. But there is another TD streak no one has mentioned yet. Manning has just tied the record for most consecutive games with 2+ touchdo...

Manning pissed at everyone for not being quiet at the end of the game - LeonPhelps
I thought this was hilarious. Seriously , though, shut the hell up when your offense is on the field. [link=(http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000416435/article/peyton-manning-not-happy-with-scoreboard-operator)]LINK[/link]...

City of New Orleans "Photo Safety Program" is total bullshite - LeonPhelps
I got a ticket in the mail recently from New Orleans through the "Photo Safety Program." I was on Canal, which has no speed limits posted anywhere that I've ever seen. It was at night and there were no other cars on the road. I noticed a flash while I was driving, not even near an intersection, b...
