Re: Denis Villeneuve's DUNE

I agree that the song felt out of place. It was a very weird choice and definitely my least favorite part of the trailer. I was also hoping for a better look at the Baron than the tiny glimpse we got here, as well as some of the other Harkonnens besides Rabban. But the costumes, armor, set designs, ...

For the past several years, acclaimed French director Denis Villeneuve has been quietly working on a new, big-budget adaptation of Frank Herbert's monumental science fiction opus, Dune . While information about the cast and crew have been known for some time, as well as the fact that this will be th...

RIP Chadwick Boseman

Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman died of colon cancer on Friday. The following message was posted on the actor's Twitter feed : Chadwick Boseman Twitter statement.jpg This is truly shocking news. Apparently he had been battling cancer for years, but had never publicized his condition. I don't kn...

Re: New Mutants film in development

So, fully five years after it was first announced, this movie has finally come out. And I'm pleased to say that I think it was worth the wait. It's easily the best X-Men movie since Logan and Days of Future Past , which is fitting since it will probably be the final X-Men movie until Marvel reboots ...

The Batman

So DC just had their big FanDome event, and hell if it doesn't look like they may actually be trying to make a comeback of sorts. There were trailers for the long-awaited Snyder Cut of Justice League , Wonder Woman 1984 , James Gunn's Suicide Squad reboot, and last but certainly not least...this. NL...

Re: U.S. Election 2020: "It's all a joke."

So, to recap the year thus far: the country is tearing itself apart, 44 million+ jobs have been lost, the debt is higher than ever (and all the politicians are like "Nah, it'll be fine!"), the Federal Reserve has declared a currency shortage, crime is at record levels and many major US cities have l...

Re: U.S. Election 2020: "It's all a joke."

The majority of the protests I've seen on the news and online have been peaceful, while the US military seems to actively try to agitate them with tear gas, rubber bullets and armed thuggery. That might be the majority of what you've seen, and I'm sure there have been some of those. Probably. But t...

U.S. Election 2020: "It's all a joke."

So, you might not have heard about this, but there's another big presidential election here in the U.S. this November. Unfortunately, it looks like our choices will once again boil down to: More Of The Same -or- Even Worse This is a particularly raw deal because, as you may also not be aware, the co...

Obscure by Dir en Grey WGpAXOimoHI The most infamous track from Dir's pivotal 2003 album Vulgar , and I don't think it would be exaggerating to say that this is probably one of the heaviest songs ever recorded, by anyone. The official video which accompanied its release is also legendary, but unfort...

Re: COVID-19 Pandemic

I can accept the two-week lockdown as a viable "oh SHIT we FUCKED UP" response, after realizing they'd screwed up the testing and the approach to testing and that the WHO had been regurgitating China's political propaganda in lieu of medical facts; and if they waited to see how fast corpses piled u...

Sooo, it's been a few months. Was beginning to think the site had been shut down. I'm compelled to ask: how's everyone doing?

I honestly thought the site was deleted or something, it was down for so long. Yeah, that's on me.

We're back, with a new look.

So you may or may not have noticed, but the forum was down for a couple months. But now it's back, and with a fairly dramatic new look, too.

I'm curious to hear what everyone thinks about that. :geek:
