re: Tales from a former SR-71 Blackbird pilot - Volvagia
I'm not sure if there really is that many degrees of separation between what we can pull off and what is pubically known. It's not a question of technology, but national and political will. Back then you had massive pressure and fear regarding our capabilities vs the Russians. Necessity is t...

re: For those on Desktop, click "Go to Beta" link at top of page to test out new version - Volvagia
Not a fan of the layout at all either. Something about the color placement and banners seemed off balanced. Features are okay, not definitely not essential. Would much rather new features to be incorporated to the current design as background enhancers rather than up front features. Yahoo/Go...

re: Netflix Original: 13 Reasons Why **SPOILERS** - Volvagia
What's even odder is the fact that the actress that plays Skye, the most heavily tatted character, isn't tattooed herself. It was all for character. Guess it was all to dip in a pool of cliches so not to waste additional time on characterization for them. ...

[quote]they definitely live what they are preaching[/quote] Isn't that kinda the problem? You think multi millionaires and people who live paycheck to paycheck follow the same exact rules of personal finance? The opportunity costs of a mistake is massively reduced in the former case. ...

re: london has fallen - Volvagia
Yes, because a movie where the Secret Service runs out en masse from a fortified stronghold to get mowed down by machine gun fire as opposed to trading space for time waiting for the heavy reinforcements to arrive is a cerebral masterpiece. ...

re: Favorite "Jack Ryan" movie? - Volvagia
To be honest.....as good as HfRO is....Shadow Recruit. I felt it captured the essence of Clancy's Jack Ryan the best, as well as being a decent reboot. Was saddened when any thought of a sequel/franchise was DOA...

[quote]hannah blaming people for not chasing after her was pretty weak. [/quote] It was. But for what it is worth, it struck me because I have been involved with a depressed individual before. And when she was at her worst, approaching rock bottom (and no, it didn't happen often), she did ...

re: The Mist series on Spike - Volvagia
Not really liking the liberties they took with it. Specifically the apparent psychological effects of the Mist itself. It kinda takes away from the whole point to make the mist that insidious. It's supposed to just be the unknown, and uncertainty. Monsters? Okay. Internal conflict among ...

re: Trashy woman loses her mind at restaurant - Volvagia
We got it. The point is that the example sucked. No one said start filming at the slightest mishap. But when someone is behaving irrationally, escalating the issue, and you are the subject of the wrath? Hell yeah film that shite. ...
