re: The best Mafia movie ever made? - auyushu
[quote]The Godfather is my answer to the OP. I also want to say that the most underrated mafia movie would probably be Miller's Crossing IMO.[/quote] This all around. Godfather is the best, but Miller's Crossing isn't that far behind in quality. What's the rumpus?...

re: I want to talk about Pan's Labyrinth real quick. - auyushu
[quote]Never hear of this but I will check it out. Thanks.[/quote] Definitely should, almost as good as Pan's labyrinth and characters from that movie actually have a cameo in Pan's if I remember right. I'd also suggest City of lost children as another similar style movie that's great....

re: Star Trek: Discovery - auyushu
[quote]No way is Discovery better than DS9 [/quote] Yeah, I enjoy Discovery quite a bit, but it is not even close to DS9. The first season of Discovery takes a little bit to get going but is a really good storyline. How they fixed the historical/timeline issues in the second season was well d...

re: "The Hunt"- Have you seen it? - auyushu
It's entertaining, wouldn't pay whatever they are charging to rent it, but definitely worth watching at some point. Gilpin is awesome as the main character....

re: What are you reading? - auyushu
[quote]inally decided to read Red Rising. Excellent read, loved it. Just finished the first trilogy and moving on to the second series now. Is it as good?[/quote] The first two books have been as good as the original trilogy I'd say. Darker and more gritty than the first three though....

re: What is the one game that you wish you could change the result? - auyushu
Auburn-fsu title game 2013 season and last year's final 4 game against Virginia would be pretty even here. The 1988 earthquake game against Lsu wouldn't be far behind since we would have played Notre Dame for the title had we not lost that game. Having Oklahoma lose at Okie state in 2004 inste...

[quote]John Carter was way better.[/quote] Oh yeah, no doubt John Carter was much better. Just remind of each other due to the way the media slamming the movie helped lead to it bombing....

re: Is Waterworld worth the watch? - auyushu
[quote]For those too young to remember, in the lead up to that movie's release it became this weird media whipping boy[/quote] Yeah, it was very similar to the John Carter movie situation. A very solid movie that got crapped on for having a high budget rather than the actual quality of the movie....

re: The Broken Earth Trilogy - auyushu
It's a great book series, extremely well written. And while I've seen plenty of comments online from and about the author that make her seem uber woke, I didn't find the series heavy handed or preachy at all....

re: What’s the best novel/book you’ve ever read? - auyushu
It's tough for me to narrow things down to one book, but if I was going with just one I'd probably choose Catch 22. To kill a mockingbird, A Storm of swords would a couple close behind or on the same level....

re: What makes Rod Carew so nondescript compared with other baseball greats? - auyushu
Carew was immortalized in a hit Beastie Boys song in the mid 90s, that's pretty good for a guy that retired in the mid 80s. I think most of the guys who played primarily during the 70s and early 80s are a little under the radar, except for the most elite guys. I don't even hear about guys like Mi...

re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - auyushu
[quote]Funny how he took Sandersons writing course I think[/quote] You can kinda see it in the attention to detail with his magic system (not on the same level as Sanderson of course, but nobody is really). McClellan's writing/characters are more on the level of wax and Wayne Sanderson rather tha...

re: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Recommendation & Discussion Thread - auyushu
Yeah, I was impressed with McClellan across the board really. He managed solid world building, solid plot, solid writing, and really interesting characters. Taniel and Ka-Poel are awesome. He's definitely one of the top few new authors I've read over the last decade....

re: America(ns) need schools - auyushu
[quote]NLCB/testing was a reasonable idea that has gone horribly, horribly wrong.[/quote] Nothing wrong with the testing itself, but funding should have never been tied to the passing rates for tests or failure rates. That's what has caused the vast majority of the issues in education, with paren...
