Re: Hannibal

Apparently they are planning s4 to be red dragon and s5 to be silence of the lambs, if everything comes together. That's pretty cool.

Re: Actors Who Actually Exist in Their Movies

Are we still updating this? In Ted there are two, Ryan Reynolds' character is referred to as a "Van Wilder" lookalike, and Seth McFarlane's character complains when people say he sounds like Peter Griffin

Re: Bechdel Test

This is kind of why the Bechdel Test is important. As Mazer mentions, it isn't a measure of whether a movie is good, but simply a measure of whether there is a baseline female presence in movies. Presumably in a utopian ideal there would be an equal measure of movies that fail the Bechdel and revers...

Re: Bechdel Test

I have more to say about this than I have time right now, but since Mazer mentioned Bridesmaids: am I the only one here who think Bridesmaids was actually a lot more misogynistic than a lot of films that fail the Bechdel test (which again, I don't think is a good measure for whether something is a ...

Spoiler
I don't think you're supposed to be sure that he killed Freddie. Personally I don't think he did but I don't know. I think one of the coolest reasons for the reboot-mentality is you legitimately don't know what will happen next.

Re: Hannibal

It's really more like a reboot than anything. Same characters, some events/dialog taken from the movies/books, but different story altogether. I can see not liking it if you expect it to be a more faithful representation. If you don't like season 1, I wouldn't expect you to feel differently about se...

Re: Good movies purposely overhyped so other people watch th

Dunno. The movie that first comes to mind is Attack the Block. It's a very entertaining movie, original and has some great moments, but I was disappointed because it was fine but not "this is one of the best movies of the year" as it was touted. I suppose there's some overlap with cultiness since th...

Good movies purposely overhyped so other people watch them

Was listening to the B-Movies Podcast and they mention a phenomenon where you see a small movie that is very good and worth watching, or even just solid and worth watching, and you feel the need to tell people IT'S THE BEST MOVIE EVER because you know they won't go out of their way to see it if you ...

No, I'm still working on them, just more slowly.

I noticed they revamped 417 and it's actually way less awful and kind of fun.

Re: Candy Crush Saga

Read a candy crush forum where a couple people claimed to have :3stars: all the way through 485, with 297 being the last holdout. I still see 182 as pretty unlikely without using a chocolate bomb adder at the start (then, it's trivial). So I'd be curious as to whether they used such things. Even wi...

Re: Candy Crush Saga

445 didn't seem that hard. It's a matter of doing things in the right order and also getting the fruit to fall naturally into the 2nd column.

Re: Candy Crush Saga

yeah, I noticed that colorbombs+choc bomb is worth a ton of points. I guess that's what I should be focusing on.
