re: The Big Short (spoiler free) - SoGaFan
Feel free to blame the ones taking the adjustable rate mortgages and the government for encouraging the loans to a wider segment of the population, but just remember what started the whole housing bubble. The banks had found a money tree with the bundles, and to keep feeding the beast, they needed m...

re: Crackpot ASOIAF Theories SPOILERS - SoGaFan
It was fantastic. I have to laugh my arse off at how brilliant it was. :lol: :bow: However, for some reason it also gives me hope that tomorrow, he just casually throws down a "it's finished."...

re: Former Bama players lead the NFL in tackles - SoGaFan
When a team is led by a secondary player in tackles, it usually isn't a good thing. Also, if a secondary player is leading in tackles, doesn't that mean they are likely being relatively torched with completed passes on their watch?...

re: Industry response to Kodi, etc. - SoGaFan
Well, it sounds like screeners might not be around much longer especially of films that aren't out in theaters. They were always an expensive proposition for low budget movies, and the fact they are now being used by people to make pirated downloads, yeah, I think they get phased out pretty quick. I...

re: Star Wars TFA Makes $247M in Opening Weekend; Up To $1B Worldwide - SoGaFan
[quote]Crazy that Ridley and John only made 445k for the film. They get a stake in the film but only after it surpasses 1 billion [/quote] Yeah, but with very few film credits between them, they can both now likely get upper 6 figures/low 7 for next 1-2, not too mention their agents have a lot m...

[quote]none of that happens in a hard money environment[/quote] There is no such thing anymore and really there hasn't been in decades. Also, wasn't the boom and bust cycle of the late 1800s and early 1900s all taking place in "a hard money environment?"...

re: Would Ralphie had beaten Scut to death? - SoGaFan
Just to put this here. Never noticed that when the leg lamp arrives, the front of the package says "His End Up", with the T conveniently cut off. :lol: Nothing subtle about that......

re: Who would you like as Young Han Solo - SoGaFan
Clearly Captain Malcolm Reynolds. Basically, Joss Whedon has already made this movie with the Firefly series, and they won't be able to improve much on that. ...

re: Question about Rey in Star Wars... *spoilers* - SoGaFan
I really don't think people are taking into account how much emotional turmoil Kylo Ren was probably in at that time, and as we all saw in Empire Strikes Back, unless you are very focused, you end up being lost amongst the power of the Force and not in control of it. ...

Force Awakens score - SoGaFan
I have to give John Williams huge props for this. I was laughing when I first heard that it would be eligible for Oscar consideration, just because I figure it would be too derivative, but he really has taken the touchstone elements of the original score and then expanded upon them seamlessly. Rey's...

re: Question about Rey in Star Wars... *spoilers* - SoGaFan
Not to mention in that 30 minutes, she goes from being terrified of being called by the light saber/Force, to being somewhat "taught" by Kylo Ren's own actions to how to harness some of its powers. There is also some speculation that, before being dumped on Jakku, she had started initial training. ...

re: Most memorable line(s) of Star Wars: TFA? (Possible Spoilers) - SoGaFan
[quote]I thought it was kind of cheesy. BTW, if they have a space ship, why does Rey have to climb the long-ass staircase? Couldn't they just have landed at the top of the hill?[/quote] Why not google Wudang Mountains? That is the first thing I thought of when she was having to climb steps to an ...

re: Why are the SW prequels fair game for criticism, but TFA somehow sacred? - SoGaFan
Jesus, no one doesn't acknowledge there are plot holes in ANY big action franchise, including Star Wars...including the first trilogy. Who the F cares? Seriously. It was an enjoyable movie. I am actually beginning to feel sorry for the people out there that can't just enjoy it for what it is- a grea...

re: Favorite lines from The Force Awakens (spoilers) - SoGaFan
I LOVED Han Solo retracing the hands the Falcon fell into and why in the intervening years. That was just PERFECT. I also rather loved Chewie trying to impress the Resistance doctor.. :lol: Oh, and one more that I can't completely remember, but it was Han Solo saying that he never asked that q...
