  1. I've read the gun had blanks, not live rounds. Even still, why was Baldwin aiming in the direction of the crew? Was it part of a scene or was it carelessness on his part?
  2. https://www.thedailybeast.com/alec-baldwin-film-rust-stunt-gun-misfire-kills-crew-member-wounds-another?ref=home I still don’t know how, with everything that happened with Brandon Lee in the Crow, this could happen again. Maybe not aim and pull the trigger at anyone who isn’t in a scene? Tragic and mind blowing. I hope for Baldwin’s sake he and/or the production have good insurance.
  3. Guarantee the so called “experts” at one pointed to this asshole as proof of voter fraud…
  4. A distant cousin of mine just notified the family that her husband (late 60s/ealry 70s) is now brain dead due to a covid-19 infection and the family is in the midst of getting his affairs in order before taking him off life support. He was fully vaccinated and caught it from one of his unvaccinated teammates on his hockey team (who was younger but still required being hospitalized). Unfortunately many anti-vaxxed individuals refuse to think of vaccines like seatbelts or drinking an driving laws. They have no ability or willingness to consider the concept of probability. Had my cousin’s husband played with fully vaccinated teammates and opponents he would more likely not have caught the virus and hence wouldn’t be brain dead. Again, probability seems like too difficulty of a concept for some.
  5. Well, yes and no. It’s true that Biden has attended less press conferences, but at least there are (weekly) press conferences. Trump did away with them almost entirely for the middle two years of his Presidency. As for Biden’s comments, that’s not uncommon for the President to be advised as to which reporters to call upon. Since the Ford administration most reporters submit their questions or topics ahead of time to the White House Press Office to allow the administration an opportunity to provide information when the questions are asked. I do think Biden is monitored and managed in part because of his age. It’s not ideal that the President is older than fuck. But considering Biden appeared to be the only candidate the Democrats could put up to beat Trump, it’s better than having a Trump second term.
  6. Thanks. Unfortunately I live in Canada and our version of HBO Max doesn't get day-one theatrical releases. It will likely be four or five months before Crave (our version of HBO Max) carries the film for us cheap streamers.
  7. 1.... https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-news-loses-it-over-woke-superman-motto-theyre-telling-us-not-to-love-our-country?ref=home 1.... https://www.thedailybeast.com/fox-news-loses-it-over-woke-superman-motto-theyre-telling-us-not-to-love-our-country?ref=home
  8. Merged two threads that were discussing the same topic. Updated thread name to include the title of the single.
  9. I’ll likely wait until it’s on a streaming site (netflix, HBO, or Disney). I finally watched the original film almost a year ago and it was the weirdest fucking thing I’ve ever seen.
  10. Yeah, I was and still am a big fan of the Nolan films, but I get what you're saying. For me Nolan's films haven't aged as well as I thought they would, particularly the last two. They seem more a product of their times, less so something timeless. I've ended up liking Batman Begins the best of the three now, which I never would have thought back when they released. It's funny when you look back at each Batman-universe film or era, they kind of speak to the times. Nolan's films, particularly the last two, had elements of global finance/crime and the disease that was its response (the third was a pretty hard repudiation of the Occupy movement). The Joker is a full-throated response and examination of the trends/currents that explain the Trump era. It will be interesting to see how this new film fits into current trends and themes. Pattinson's Batman appears to be the most emotionally charged Batman we've seen in movie form.
  11. Looks like Covid-19 took down Colin Powell. He was 84.
