re: Alien: Covenant Prologue Clip - auyushu
[quote]I don't understand the casting. Why are they in this?[/quote] Paxton was one of the best parts of Aliens, and McBride could easily fill a similar role in this one based on that prologue clip....

re: Book board: help me decide what to read next - auyushu
[quote]The Riyria Chronicles or Riyria Revelations by Michael Sullivan. [/quote] Excellent book series that finished well. I'd recommend the OP read this or the First Law series over anything else mentioned in thread. If you wind up liking Abercrombie a bunch I'd check out Mark Lawrence's book...

re: With Baseball days away, create your all-time SEC Lineup (based on MLB success) - auyushu
I'd probably go with Tim Hudson over Lee at starting pitcher if we are talking complete MLB career, though Lee had the best 5-6 year peak. David Price will likely outpace both in a few years though....

re: Frank Thomas alleges that Ivan Rodriguez used steroids - auyushu
[quote]You're a bit biased, but none of these guys started speaking out against steroids until testing came into play around 03-04.[/quote] Do some research, Frank was speaking out against it in the middle to late 90s. And while I'm a little biased, the facts support my argument on him. There is ...

re: Frank Thomas alleges that Ivan Rodriguez used steroids - auyushu
[quote]He's just awfully defensive and has gone out of his way to proclaim his innocence. You can tell he's not the smartest guy in the room. [/quote] Out of his way to proclaim his innocence? The dude was calling for steroid testing while he was playing back in the 90s. He's the only player who...

re: Godfather 1 or 2? - auyushu
[quote]1 is a contained work and Michael has a full character arc 2 has the Vito backstory but Michael isn't all that interesting [/quote] This is how I feel about them myself, I prefer 1 because of that. The Vito parts in 2 are excellent, but the rest of the story is pretty meh. 1 is great...

re: Anyone else swear off SNL? - auyushu
You shouldn't be watching because they suck and have mostly sucked for over a decade outside of the SNL shorts with Samberg, not because of what some writer posted....

re: Is Josey Wales the best badass western? - auyushu
[quote]I like it more than Unforgiven, but not as much as Good/Bad/Ugly and Once Upon/West. [/quote] This for me as well. Josey Wales and The Wild Bunch wouldn't be far behind those though....

re: Favorite Stephen King book? - auyushu
[quote]Absolutely. Night Shift and Skeleton Crew are must reads for any King fan. Jerusalem's Lot, Survivor Type, The Jaunt, The Most, One for the Road, The Ledge, Quitters, Inc., Battleground[/quote] Yep, Night Shift is actually one of my favorite King books period, mostly for the ledge, Quitter...

re: 33 science fiction and fantasy books coming in 2017 - auyushu
[quote]Same for Jim Butcher. Peace Talks (Dresden Files #16) has been in the works for what feels like forever.[/quote] Eh, it's annoying it's taking this long since he's been so fast with the others, but Butcher isn't even close to being on the Rothfuss/Martin level. Still, it's problematic w...

re: Civ 6 - auyushu
[quote]I have a picture like that one but worse. 44 religion units on the screen.[/quote] Yeah, they need to make you need an open borders treaty to move on your lands with religious units, or seriously change things up. Maybe add a casus belli when you can attack them for no warmonger if they do...

re: The ATL Thread Offseason Edition: Braves acquire Brandon Phillips - auyushu
[quote]Also interesting that some people within the industry are starting to value Acuna over Albies. As I said, I think he is a big, big piece and would not be surprised if Rays preferred him over Albies either.[/quote] Not really hard to see why with Albies being a super high floor guy and Acun...

re: TOffical AU vs. Vandy game thread 23-16 GAME - auyushu
[quote]We still put up a fight with run defense, but it seems two consecutive opponents have figured out how to neutralize our line with these throws. This shurmur kid has been awful by any standard and he's shredding us! [/quote] Yeah, Vandy running on us earlier is mainly just due to the dli...

re: Pettway's Stars - auyushu
[quote]His running style reminds me of Rudi Johnson but I don't think Rudi was near his size. I honestly don't remember a feature back that was as thick as Pettway though Ben Tate was up there too.[/quote] He's got similar upright style and size of Brandon Jacobs but has better agility with those...

re: First time watching Miller's Crossing - auyushu
