There’s no real way to get confidence other than to just get it.

you can either level up the hard way, or just buy the upgrade.

yeah, possessed your facts are either a bit out of date, or just based on your experience.

no hard feelings.

maybe you don’t have fast enough to pull 1080p from amazon, or else you are using their PC browser based video which did used to suck, and probably still does. but on my Roku Amazon is certainly a much higher bitrate than Netflix, both at 1080p. but i also don’t care.

Metropolis (1927) (Whichever restoration was available on Netflix)

OG Netflix with Discs or Newbie Netflix which is pathetic Streaming?

Boy you sound grumpy. I know that Netflix streams are lower bitrate than Amazon, and I guess other’s too? But hot damn, I wouldn’t call it pathetic by a long shot.

Of course dowsing is real. It’s just there’s a risk of digging up the odd evil severed head once in a while. 😉

lol.

i need to have a free day to watch some MST3k with a friend. oh i should have done more of this in college when i had the time…

That’s the majority of what I did.

The rest of the time was spent trying harder than watching porn.

Lol.

Knob Creek 100-proof bourbon mixed with ginger beer.

I mean, not right at this moment, I’m at work. But it’s on deck back home.

Wink wink.

Is it literally on your deck? If so I’m gonna steal it.

The <em>Stranger Things</em> Thread

I did finally finish this last week or so. The last two episodes were a bit over-the-top for me.

Overall I enjoyed it but I think season 1 was much better.

Ranking the Star Wars films

Rey’s marksmanship is a perfect example of the sexist bullshit that is the Mary Sue argument. Think how common it is in movies (not just Star Wars) that a guy picks up a gun for the first time and his aim and ability is never questioned. Yet they go out of their way to show that Rey isn’t perfect with a blaster but people call it out anyway.

The Luke comparisons are legitimate. Not because he’s a Gary Stu (although seriously guys, if anyone’s a heroic author avatar, maybe it’s the character that shares George’s name?), but because the truth is no one watches Star Wars and questions Luke’s ability with a blaster, like the thought never even occurs. The fact Rey is held to a higher level of scrutiny is just proof of the sexist skepticism of the capabilities of female characters and women in general.

The only post worth reading on this page.

They’re little red kiosks at supermarkets or drugstores where you can rent a movie or game for a couple bucks a day (it charges your card every day until you return it). They’re usually pretty convenient and carry Blu-Rays, too.

I honestly am surprised they still exist.

why? the prices is unbeatable. and they are generally super convenient. if i want to rent a blu-ray of a film i want to see, but don’t want to purchase, it is half the prices of renting it on a streaming service. if the prices of streaming rentals ever matches redbox, then i will stop redboxing.
