| Movie/TV Board|| Favorite Shakespeare adaptation? - Master of Sinanju on 8/26/14 at 10:23 am|
Mine is Olivier's Richard III from 1955.
The opening soliloquy is one of my favorite scenes ever. It actually combines the opening of Richard III with another soliloquy from Richard in King Henry VI Part III.
| Movie/TV Board|| Fantastic Four 2 and Galactus - Master of Sinanju on 8/19/14 at 9:24 am|
I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I liked the Fantastic Four movies, even with their flaws. And the biggest flaw, IMO, was the watered down villains.
Dr Doom is in the conversation for GOAT supervillain character, but he is a mere shadow of himself in the first film.
I thought Rise of the Sil...
| SEC Rant|| Where are your season tickets located? - Master of Sinanju on 8/15/14 at 9:39 am|
I just got mine this week! :Nana:
I am in Section U4-BB of BDS. I've had them since the 2010 expansion.
They are upper deck (:yack:), but on the aisle, so I don't know if I will give them up try to move down.
Where are yours, and have you considered giving them up due to rising costs or b...

| SEC Rant|| Do you rewatch your team's losses? - Master of Sinanju on 1/24/14 at 8:54 am|
I know a lot of posters like to rewatch football games, either because they attended it and want to see it on TV, or because they want to see the little things their teams did right or wrong.
Of course, this is easy to do when you win big, but not so much fun after a painful loss. And every SEC ...
| Movie/TV Board|| Pain and Gain - Master of Sinanju on 5/12/13 at 8:54 pm|
Anyone else see this wild and crazy movie? I had no idea it was actually based a true story - and the real story was even more bizarre than the movie.
I thought it was very funny, and the actors did a great job with these over the top ridiculous characters.
I'm planning to track down the book...

| More Sports Board|| Will the Crystal Football still be given on the field after the title game? - Master of Sinanju on 1/23/13 at 1:17 pm|
Before the BCS, the crystal trophy was given to the #1 team in the Coaches' Poll, after a vote a day or two after the season ended.
During the BCS, the title game winner was automatically #1 in the CP, so the trophy was given out immediately after the game on the field.
Does anyone know if the...
| SEC Rant|| Is Notre Dame's defense better than LSU? - Master of Sinanju on 12/10/12 at 1:39 pm|
Some talking head over the weekend said the Alabama offense is about to play a defense the likes of which it has yet to face, led of course by Manti Teo.
I understand that everything is hype and hyperbole leading up to the big game, but is the ND defense the best Alabama will face? Statistical...
