BL is going to do an expose on "The secret underground film forums and how they're undermining Hollywood" He's going to talk about how he went undercover in film forums for a "few years" to get this info. :D

You know, as much of a gamer that I am, I've never seen an episode. Just haven't gotten around to it.


From just surfing the internet I'm aware that
Sean Bean and Aquaman's characters have been killed.

I'd say if you have the free time read the book series first. And when you're done just watch the TV series. Since the TV series started diverging when they caught up to the books. My friend is really into it. I'm eh on it.

Also, there's no magic swords or talking animals or other fantasy shit in the book if you guys were getting your hopes up. Lot of graphic rape though.

Wow. Looks like Solo is coming in way under expectations. I think they released it too soon and there was also no real anticipation for a Han Solo movie anyways.

Btw Last Jedi was great and did tons of box office. No one is as half excited about a Solo movie. I will see it at some point, though.

Yeah but The Last Jedi also made $600 million domestic and was part of the new trilogy. That was only 5 months ago. I think people were getting a little fatigued from the franchise and it would have helped had they released Solo in December like the rest of the movies.

Also Deadpool 2 gave it a good pounding in its second week of release.

True. I also agree that releasing Solo after Deadpool 2 was a bad idea.

The last time I listened to Springsteen at any great length was an HBO simulcast in 2000. I've heard his albums of course, but I don't play him often.

I really love "Blinded by the Light" from the debut.

As someone who thinks and has always thought that nothing worth saying could ever be said in 140 characters, and someone who is completely ignorant of what anyone might be saying on Twitter about anything, I don't think Twitter has any effect on film culture as I experience it. Ignorance is bliss!
