An experiment - would you choose your 10 favorite movies or sequels to them? - Methuselah
Ok. Here's the setup - You will be confined to a comfortable house for one month. You will have all the necessary comforts except that your only form of entertainment will be your choice between your 10 favorite movies or a never before seen sequel to each of them. The only information you get ...

Design an afterlife (no matter what your religion or lack thereof) - Methuselah
OK. You get to design an afterlife. What do you do. Is it a place of reward AND a place of punishment? What would you perfect "heaven" be? Clouds, angels, valhalla? 42 virgins? What about "hell"? Would you go with one at all? If so, would you make it eternal? Or some place where peo...

Did S5 of Game of Thrones show a quality drop? (might contain book discussion) - Methuselah
I think it did show somewhat of a decline compared to previous seasons. Don't get me wrong. I don't think this season sucked or anything like that. But I did find it took a step back from it's best work. First of all, I am not one who takes issues with hardly any changes from the books. I ...

Is the recent "golden age" of television series on the decline? - Methuselah
Spin off thread from the True Detective discussion: - With the True Detective series kind of faltering and GoT loosing a bit of quality this past season and things like Breaking Bad and Mad Men now in the rear view mirror, is the golden age showing signs of abating? The last couple of AMC att...

Who is the biggest A-hole on True Detective S2? (spoilers through current epi.) - Methuselah
In a show where there are tons of people vying for this particular honor, who's the biggest jerk so far? I'd have to go with the Mayor of Vinci. Though the black lady that is a higher up with Rachel McAdam's department is close....

How bad do you want the Tigers to win a NC in football this year? - Methuselah
Does it keep you up at night thinking about it? Would you give up a night with a supermodel if it was guaranteed to result in a NC? Would you take a losing season next year for a NC this year? Would you sleep with a slump buster a week for the entire season if it worked?...

Is the being naked part of "naked and afraid" the stupidest conceit on the tube? - Methuselah
Yes. I'm ashamed to say I've watched an episode or two of this show. The being naked part of the show really has next to no relevance to the show at all. (The only thing that ever comes into play are foot injuries/diseases for which they could have just done a "shoe-less and afraid") I gues...

Book readers and Hodors unite - envision Danny's and Tyrion's meeting words - Methuselah
Since we're all in the same boat on this one, I think we can all participate. (Fellow readers - please don't drop any stray tangential book info so that we can hopefully avoid spoilertags). My poor attempt: Danny: You are reported to be a King Slayer and a Kin Slayer. Why should I not execu...

Best gratuitous use of boobs in a major motion picture - Methuselah
What's your choice? I'm going to go with Adrienne Barbeau in Swamp Thing. (I may be fudging a bit on the "major motion picture" part of that. :lol: [img]http://methuselah.smugmug.com/Misc-images/i-9wcd3bV/0/M/MV5BMjA5MDU0MTMxM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDYyMTM3NA%40%40._V1_SX640_SY720_-M.jpg[/img] ...

What kind of leader would Sansa be anyway? SPOILERS -show & book input welcomed - Methuselah
All of the discussions I've seen of Sansa of late suppose either that she remains a victim or becomes a leader or force for righteous vengeance (ie: what passes for justice in GoT land) But if she was able to "find her strength" and somehow become Wardeness of the North or some other leadership...

Is it difficult to make classical literature into good movies? And what the best - Methuselah
I understand classical literature is a pretty nebulous term - lets say for the purpose of this discussion it's defined as one of those books they assign in high school or college or that is on one or another of the top 100 lists out there. Seems like relatively speaking you don't see a lot of the...

Spin off thread - Let's discuss the star and average rating systems for movies - Methuselah
This question was inspired by some conversation in the Avenger AoU rating thread but it goes far beyond that so I figured it might be a good topic for a stand along thread: Do you consider a 2 out of 4 star, a 2 1/2 out of 5 star and a 5 out of 10 average rating (or star rating if there are any ...

Give me some advice on buying a new 42-46 inch t.v. - Methuselah
My old workhorse tv in the living room is finally on it's last legs after about a 20 year run. (that thing weighs about a ton but it's been a great t.v.) The limiting dimension is really the width - a 40 inch absolute limit (though really anything much above 38 inch will be cutting it close. So ...

Some of mine: 1- Born Free 2- Homeward Bound 3- Babe 4- The Ghost and the Darkness 5- Free Willy Full disclosure - movies like Old Yeller and The Black Stallion should probably be somewhere on the list but it's been so long since I've seen them I don't remember that much about them. ...

Is there a soldier's paradox -thinking about home while deployed and vice versa - Methuselah
In reading up on some stuff on Appomattox yesterday I came across a section on how veterans from both sides formed many Veterans groups. It made me think - from everything I've seen and read (I've never served) it seems like while in combat situations, soldier's long for home and loved ones and a...

Anybody ever go on any major cross country road trips to see the U.S.? - Methuselah
Furthest I ever went was here (La.) to Aspen and that was mostly a straight through trip. (We were in a Suburban and had like 6 people who could drive) and a good chunk of the trip was at night. So it wasn't a real "experience Americana" type of trip. Anybody got any good stories or just reflect...
