You're right, I should have said it was awful. ;)




A bunch of pics but I'm not sure how many of them Raven posters would find interesting. :D

We really liked Mystic Manor. It took me a second...

Postscript, had Tomb Raider Cradle of Life on TV this morning while I was messing around downstairs. I had forgotten a good chunk of the movie takes place in Hong Kong (to be fair, I had forgotten...

Le Saboteur, I wanted to say thanks for all your suggestions. We got back from our trip yesterday and had a great time.

Yes and Ms. Marvel is set in the 90's (thus the use of a pager in the bonus scene). As the only two MCU movies between now and Avengers 4 we won't see any fallout until then.*

I'm with Pale Horse, good, not great. Probably better if you're a die-hard Marvel comic nut (I'm not) but for me it doesn't live up to the best of the MCU. My top 5 of the MCU are still (in some...

Well we were going to do it anyway, just for the gondola ride, but we just found out that the gondola will close for maintenance the day we arrive through the day we leave. So now we're considering...

The Russos may but I don't believe when push comes to shove that they'll have the final say. They may walk away but Disney will find somebody else to carry the torch until its far past played out.

You trust the heads of Disney and Marvel not to overdo a good thing and run it into the ground? Have we been living in the same world the last ~20 years? Because from my POV that's exactly what...

One aspect I've always liked about Indy is the overlap with the "golden age of travel", especially the clipper ships across the Pacific. I've found some great histories of the era (China's Wings is...

Oh yeah, I completely agree with your take on the movie, just not your take on Gen X. :D

And now, as a solid Gen X'er, I'm going to disagree with you. :D Your take on Gen X doesn't match anything me or my similarly aged friends feel or grew up with.

I will agree that yes, the original...

I agree with Raiders112390 here. These movies are made with a different viewpoint and one that IMO doesn't represent why Star Wars has been so enduring. That doesn't make the viewpoint wrong or not...

Sadly that's a little outside my price range. Too bad, because I'd love to see that lounge.

Actually considering going to a Rangers-Dreams game while I'm there.

Planning our first trip to Hong Kong in a couple of months. Anything particularly Indy-like I should plan on seeing while I'm there?

The book isn't amazing, in fact a lot of it is pretty sub-par, but it is fun. These trailers have none of that fun. It turns it into a bad CW teen drama with way too much CGI. I have no idea who...
