| Movie/TV Board|| Power Rangers Spin Off - I want a good Mech Warrior Movie Please - TygerTyger on 2/24/15 at 11:50 am|
Any of you ever play the Mech Warrior/Battle Tech RPGs back in the late 80s? There are a lot of novels written that go along with the story of the game and really flesh out the world and its characters. The PC games went even further and the first two were a LOT of fun.
I'd love to see them make ...

It was painfully ironic to hear Ms. Rice tell us that the danger we face today is not as serious as the dangers we faced in World War II.
Anyone who has actually studied the period that led up to World War II knows that the Western democracies followed feckless policies remarkably simi...

| Movie/TV Board|| Chris Pratt as Indiana Jones - TygerTyger on 1/28/15 at 9:42 am|
Ignoring the bigger question of should there even be another Indy movie, I must say that Chris Pratt may be the only actor I can see in the role. Pratt has the right look, the screen presence, and the leading man qualities. He's the right age, and he's proven he can be an action hero.

I was looking for a spare set of keys this morning and realized that the missus has managed to create 3 junk drawers in our house. What the hell? Sure, I can see having one drawer for all the miscellaneous stuff that doesn't seem to fit in to any other category for proper storage. But three? And al...

I guess this is the best place for this so here goes.
Can any of you fine folks recommend a ceiling fan that moves a lot of air for a home worout room? The one that's in there is builder grade and doesn't do squat.
I'm hoping to spend around $200, but willing to go higher if necessary.

I just don't get how in the hell this movie gets such a high rating. I consider myself a pretty smart guy, with a decent appreciation for movies. I watched this turd last night and I honestly don't see what about this story even warranted it getting made. It isn't even Lifetime Movie material.
