re: The ATL Thread 4/18: Nationals @7:35 EST - auyushu
[quote]I am close to being OFF the Newcomb can be a starter train. Guy cannot throw strikes.[/quote] Yeah, I'm leaning towards both him and Sims being relievers at this point. At least they both have the stuff to be high leverage guys. Would make the Simmons trade a pretty huge bust though. Lu...

re: Late but The Dark Tower Poster - auyushu
[quote]Meh. Not as excited about this as I once was. They are changing so much about it that it's hardly even the same story.[/quote] Yeah, I was leery to start with on this one. That leaked trailer looks like garbage....

re: Is this the future of movies? - auyushu
[quote]Yeah but listen, he can't bitch about "kids these days and their damn CGI" if he thinks about this rationally. He needs to be reactionary. [/quote] I liked the fact he was bitching about the CGI movies made for 16 year olds and admitted he went to see Kong in the theater and liked it....

re: Marvel's Iron Fist is bombing with critics (viewer discussion begins on page 5) - auyushu
[quote]I went back and read some of the reviews, and a lot of the hate is SJW BS. White male appropriating eastern culture, sexism, mansplaining, etc. Also a lot to do with the plot being similar to batman begins. It seems like the majority of them watched episode 1 and just stopped. [/quote] Yea...

re: Marvel's Iron Fist is bombing with critics (viewer discussion begins on page 5) - auyushu
[quote]Im on 7. Why are the critics giving it so hate? I like it better than Luke cage and it got rave reviews. Only reason its not better than JJ for me is JJ had David Tennant who was must see for every second he was on screen as the purple man [/quote] Yeah, I've watched 5 episodes and I don't...

re: Best backfield trio in your school's history? - auyushu
[quote]You must be young because n my lifetime, Bo Jackson and BRENT fullwood were the best RB group I have ever seen on any team. [/quote] Yup, Fullwood is easily the second best back I watched play at Auburn during my time. I was too young to watch Cribbs and Brooks until they were in the pr...

re: Why Does this board love No Country for Old Men? - auyushu
[quote]Bardem was of course amazing but so were Jones and Brolin and others. [/quote] Woody was good in his role as well, but it's rare for the Coen brothers to not get good performances out of their cast. There are some interesting ideas in the film, but perhaps for me it's that I've seen or ...

re: Why Does this board love No Country for Old Men? - auyushu
[quote] Some people can enjoy brilliant film work, some can't. I honestly think it's something your mind either has or doesn't. You can either catch the things that make No Country great, or you can't. [/quote] Eh, you are oversimplifying to the extreme here. No Country is thought of as average...

re: So are the cavs benching everyone tonight bc Lebron can't handle the boos? - auyushu
[quote]He isn't wrong about the stat. Through 14 years no one has played more minutes than LeBron has logged, nobody.[/quote] Guess we are talking playoffs and extended number of games then with that if it's true. Wilt averaged over 6 minutes more per game than Lebron in his 14 years. Wilt blows ...

re: So are the cavs benching everyone tonight bc Lebron can't handle the boos? - auyushu
[quote]Wilt Chamberlain? Kareem? Big O ? Elvin Hayes? Karl Malone may be in there because it's not Lebron. Probably some more old school players I can't think of. [/quote] He's wrong about that stat, but the only player who has played in the past 35-40 years and averaged more minutes per game ...

re: Book board: help me decide what to read next - auyushu
[quote] I didn't make it through the first book a few years ago. Probably read 90% of it but I wasn't a big fan of the vague realms and powers in the book.[/quote] I liked the first book a great deal when I started, but many people suggest starting with the second book in the series and then bou...

re: 2017 #5 Auburn Baseball (30-12) and #9 Softball (39-8) Season Thread - auyushu
[quote]Explain to me how Anfernee Grier's Single A numbers were so poor this year, but an article I read said he's the Diamondbacks #5 prospect and expected to debut in the majors around late 2018 or early 2019. Is there really that big of an adjustment from high level college ball to low level mino...

re: If "They Live" was made this year..who would you cast the film with? - auyushu
Chris Pratt for the Piper role, the Rock or Common in place of Keith David. Meg Foster could be played by any number of people. But much like most Carpenter films, should never be remade. Perfect as it is....

[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...
