re: What going to be the bigger clusterfrick in 2022- World Cup or Olympics? - Freauxzen on 6/2/15 at 1:47 pm
I don't understand how these gargantuan events became "charity" to ill-equipped countries to make them feel better about themselves. The Olympics should rotate through about 8-10 countries. Same for the World Cup. It has nothing to do with inclusiveness and everything to do with capabilities. ...

re: The Rock to star in Big Trouble in Little China remake - Freauxzen on 6/2/15 at 8:41 am
[quote]There are just some movies that belong to a particular time and place and simply can't be divorced from their context. "Big Trouble in Little China" is just about the most quintessential mid-'80s cheese imaginable. I don't care about the fact that they're remaking it. It's their choice. But a...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

[quote]I think was kinda overshadowed by the success of The Office running at the same time[/quote] Yup. And, as much as I like the Office, I feel P&R was way more consistent.

[quote]What most people forget about in the cord cutting discussion though is the freedom it allows. People get so glued to the TV with cable.

re: Great Concepts that were Poorly Executed - Freauxzen on 5/29/15 at 7:37 am
I still like Identity, and Idiocracy for that matter. But I understand why they would make the list. Sunshine Not that it's a poor movie, but with a different final 15-20 minutes it's probably up there with Children of Men as the best of the modern science fiction films. Great concept though....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
