re: T.O doesn't make the HOF - Baloo
Owens never led the league in receptions or receiving yards. Not once. In fact, he was top 5 in catches only twice (never higher than 4th) and top 5 in yards only three times (highest was 3rd). He also was a tremendous pain in the ass, which likely had a negative effect on the teams he played fo...

re: Birdman - Baloo
It's actually a condemnation of Hollywood for making soulless superhero films which have no cultural "importance". What this movie does is jack off Broadway and "The Theater", which is playing off of Hollywood's massive insecurities. ...

re: Bands With Most Underrated Drummers - Baloo
Bill Stevenson was the drummer for Black Flag (well, for a time, but in their most prolific period), the Descendants, and All. He was a key member in two of the greatest hardcore bands of all time, and All is pretty great as well, though not quite as elite. He's also one of the biggest producers in ...

re: Puckheads Unite! Season Long NHL Thread - Baloo
I'm pissed at the Isles on general principle. And not for repeatedly elbowing Tom Wilson in the head. I get that, and I like the fact that Tom Wilson doesn't just reside in the Isles' head space, he's looking at school districts there. The Isles' complete obsession with Wilson fills my heart with gl...

Hey, look who came out of his two months of hiding! I didn't write the Pens off, to quote me when the Pens fired their coach, [quote]They've played like horse manure most of the year, but they still aren't that far out of a playoff spot if they get their stuff together.[/quote] And then I...

re: Does anybody else not care for all the superhero movies and TV shows? - Baloo
I do wish they would make a deeper dive into some of the more unique corners of the comic book universe. I think we could have an awesome Lazarus or Nowhere Men film, and people wouldn't even know its a "comic book movie". Something like Ed Brubaker's spy stuff (like Incognito or Fatale) would be re...

re: Everybody's a Critic: Or How to Define the M/TV Board - AO Scott, NYTimes - Baloo
I do think groupthink and backlashes happen. It would be silly to argue otherwise. And sometimes, people just like being contrarian. That said, I feel that most of the major voices on this board are secure enough in their opinions that they usually don't try and put up a falase front. Most opinions,...

re: Let's discuss "Armageddon" - It is on Netflix this month - Baloo
One of the true virtues of the film is that, like Con Air, every member of the talented cast knows the movie they are in is a total piece of shit, so they just ham it up to the nth degree. That is not a criticism, that's why the movie is a total blast. It's completely ridiculous at every turn, bu...

re: Everybody's a Critic: Or How to Define the M/TV Board - AO Scott, NYTimes - Baloo
I do like the democratic nature of critical debates in the internet era. Anyone can contribute, but let's not pretend everyone's voice holds equal value. Your opinion is only as good as your argument is persuasive. Shouting at someone "This stinks!" doesn't convince anyone, you need to articulate wh...

re: Buying digital releases of Disney Vault Movies - Baloo
They haven't done it yet, but you do not own digital copies. If it is not on your server and in your possession, you do not own it. You are allowed to view their copy. This isn't just Disney, but all of those Digital HD copies that come with your Blue Ray... if you do not actually download a copy an...

re: Two questions about Casablanca. - Baloo
1. No. They were implying she got around, just not that she had an STD or anything. Just that she slowed the German advance because they were too busy having sex with her. Sort of an inverse Face that launched a thousand ships. 2. We drink remarkably little as a society, historically speaking. Dr...

re: What does the $5 milkshake scene mean to you? - Baloo
I've always viewed Jackrabbit Slims being about nostalgia. Tarantino traffics in nostalgia, and while this was just his second movie, it is a conscious throwback to the hard-boiled crime films of the 1970s. And one of the biggest things in the 1970s was nostalgia for the 1950s (think Happy Days and ...

re: Finally watched Mad Max: Fury Road - Baloo
[quote]No background story, no character development, not much of a plot. [/quote] There is a lot of background, you just have to pay attention. The movie doesn't just lay everything out for you, but it sketches out these full backstories in brief character moments, which is wonderfully efficient...
