re: What was your most memorable movie theater experience? - GumBro Jackson
My most epic movie experience was watching a re-release of Lawrence of Arabia at an old-school movie palace in Washington DC. Everything was just so huge and majestic. Felt like the glory days of movies. Other memorable trips to the theater were watching Pulp Fiction with friends and a rowdy crow...

re: Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery on Netflix today - GumBro Jackson
I watched this last night and thought it was enjoyable, but not quite as good as the original. I thought it actually started a little slowly, then picked up and was very entertaining, but for me the ending was a little flat. The characters (beside Blanc) were not quite as engaging as in the firs...

re: What cartoons do you remember most fondly from your childhood? - GumBro Jackson
I always enjoyed the action/adventure cartoons. I really liked GI Joe, Transformers, Ghostbusters, and D&D. For reruns I liked Johnny Quest, Space Ghost, and the Herculoids. I also watched Scooby-Doo and Looney Tunes. When I was a little older I had mostly stopped watching, but still liked Ba...

re: How many seasons is too many for you to start a new show? - GumBro Jackson
I understand where the OP is coming from. I usually only watch about 4 hours of non-sports TV per week. If a show has a bunch of seasons and a lot of eps per season I'm less likely to dive in bc it would take me too long to get through it. Edit to add, if I start a show when it only has a couple ...

re: What celebrities have you met? Were they nice or a jerk? - GumBro Jackson
My coolest celebrity interaction was when I met Billy Bob Thornton at a restaurant bar. My girlfriend and I had finished our meal and were killing time at the bar bc it was pouring outside and we didn't want to get soaked trying to get a cab (this was pre-uber). He was really friendly and we chatted...

re: How did the Peach Bowl become such a prestigious bowl game? - GumBro Jackson
Yeah, when i was younger it was pretty far down the list. As others said, Fiesta made a move to join BCS, and leapfrogged cotton. For years the Peach bowl overpaid participating teams to move up the pecking order. It had great support and sold out for years. Then when it was time to bid for NY6 ...

re: Does anyone else get mildly annoyed at a life experience being called ‘a journey’? - GumBro Jackson
Dante called life a journey in the opening line of Inferno. That was in the 14th century. I'm sure there are older examples. This is now a new thing. https://www.fulltextarchive.com/book/Dante-s-Inferno/...

re: Do you plan to have a mortgage on your primary home for part/all of your retirement? - GumBro Jackson
As others have said, it can make sense if you are making more than your mortgage rate, but I personally plan to pay mine off before I retire. In part for the psychological benefit. I just want that security. ...

re: I’m thinking about becoming an NHL fan - GumBro Jackson
I never watched as a kid, but I moved somewhere with a team and I have to say the games are awesome. I live in Raleigh so I'm a Canes fan. I'd say just watch some games and see what team appeals to you. Just don't be lame and pick a team whose fans are full of themselves like any of the Origi...

re: Dan Snyder Hires Bank Of America To Sell Washington Commanders(update) - GumBro Jackson
I lived in DC for a while. I supported the team and went to 12 or 15 games over a few years, but they lost me through the years through a combination of Snyder's mismanagement and scandals, horrible product on the field and terrible experience at the stadium. I had mostly checked out anyway and when...

re: Did your favorite sport change over time? - GumBro Jackson
College football has always been my #1 sport. I am not as into it as I used to be, but it is still my #1. My #2 has changed. Used to be MLB, but is now tennis. In general I watch a lot less and don't care as much about sports as I used to. ...
