re: Point Break remake - classictiger
[quote]No, just no, who thought this movie needed a reboot?[/quote] Because Hollywood doesn't give two fricks about your moral "no reboot" high ground. They care about all the revenue they can generate from the retread formula. Much less effort than having to come up with an original story. Most ...

re: Kobe Bryant retiring at end of season - classictiger
[quote]Kobe Bryant retiring at end of season[/quote] Did he really have a choice? Father time + injuries have completely caught up with him. He is 1/3 of the player he used to be. He is playing on lagged reward money. No one is gonna sign him next year, except for the league minimum (and not the ...

re: Spotlight - classictiger
Great investigative reporting movie. But what you see is what you get. The two hours are spent on uncovering the Catholic Church child sex abuse scandal in Boston, MA and surrounding areas. This leaves little time for any real character development aside from their investment in the story. Given the...

re: Trainwreck tonight - classictiger
Saw it Friday afternoon. Really enjoyed it. It dragged a little, but not a lot. If you don't like Amy Schumer then don't go see it. The movie is a vehicle for her brand of comedy and she is in almost every scene (makes sense since she wrote the screenplay). Btw, Tilda Swinton as Amy's boss is gre...

re: Someone tell me about Movie Tavern - classictiger
[quote]Is the food good? Cheap? Trashy clientele? is the 3D good? [/quote] Went to one in Williamsburg, VA. The food is ok but pricey. You are definitely paying for the convenience. Clientele was not very trashy but I am sure this varies by locale. I cannot speak to the 3D quality. For me it...

re: Does ESPN's Chris Broussard consider himself a journalist? - classictiger
[quote]Sports "journalism" these days is basically just who can tweet a story first, regardless of accuracy[/quote] Yep. And it is all about who can "report" the most outrageous thing. This and Adam Shefter's post of JPP's medical report have to be major black eyes for ESPN. And I am glad ...

re: True Detective S2 headlines HBO's most disappointing Season Ever - classictiger
[quote]I'm really hoping True Detective is going to be good. I just finished season 1 and really liked it a lot.[/quote] In some ways perhaps True Detective is the most unfair criticism of the three since it has a basis for comparison. However, the fact that the director Fukunaga and the original...

True Detective S2 headlines HBO's most disappointing Season Ever - classictiger
Perhaps a bit of hyperbole, but this critic thinks all three shows premiering on Sunday--True Detective, Ballers, and The Brink are not very good. [quote]The lineup of shows that launches Sunday, June 21, on HBO is the most disappointing full lineup the network has ever assembled. It banks heavil...
