A laser tag Waiting for Godot episode is seriously blowing my mind.
The running gag of Dennis manically and aggressively supporting Dee was amazing.

Plus, one of the characters let Johnson get back at all those online neckbeards who wouldn't stop whining that "Ryian ruined Last Jedguywaaaaaaaaaaaaa", which, of course, is always a good thing.

The timing belt in my car snapped while driving. It's a nightmare where I have to pay 500 to put a new timing belt on and see how fucked up the engine is from the snap. Like they could be all, this engine is trash. Maybe get a new one.

This is not a good movie, or I mean to say you can tell that the dude who made this movie is a shlocky hack, and yet through some bizarre confluence of the universe, he made a good movie. About eighty percent of that can be credited to Ethan Hawke who is never anything less than fully convincing as a bit of an asshole who is losing his damned mind over all the spooky shit in his house. The rest of the credit goes to the haunted home movies which really are unnerving and fucked up in the best way possible. Everything else is pretty trash, the bad guy and the ghost kids look pretty silly, Vincent fucking D'onofrio of all people shows up to explain the plot via skype, and ohmygod that last shot is just the worst fucking thing ever, a goddamn child would have known not to pull that corny shit at the end, but they just couldn't help themselves. Overall though, good spooky time.

How much superhero shit do you people need? Parodies, homages, deconstruction, reconstruction, superheroes who kill, swear, fuck, others are fun and cartoony, these ones are grounded in real life, these ones live on the moon. Just ... jesus, is this what it was like with westerns in the 60s?

Basically I watched the first episode, nodded my head at some of it but was turned off by it's sense of humor... the script is lacking because Lindelof. It just wasn't spectacular enough to go through the trouble of pirating the second episode... then I heard about the dildo and was like :shifty: :shifty: :shifty:

I was like the first guy on Korea. And not just the Oldboy, I'm talking A bittersweet life, memories of murder, a tale of two sisters, the good the bad the weird.

I agree that we've been over-saturated with superhero media for the better part of the past two decades now, but the bubble will pop eventually, and there is an upside to this glut, as a genre's most interesting works can often came about after we've become exhausted with its conventions, and then filmmakers start radically breaking the mold of those conventions, like NerdWriter explained here with Logan:
