Random Pictures and Gifs (now with winning!) [NSFW]
Time

The only relevant things in that skyscraper of pics are the “before smartphones/after smartphones” and the George Lucas images. The rest is “I’m a fat, out of touch loser and I’ll blame it on the kids”.
Don’t be that guy.
This is coming from a middle aged man. If you don’t have presents and people around on your birthday, it’s not the internets fault.

Guys, I’m stupid. I found this question in a bunch a stupid riddles. I guess I just don’t get the joke

Question:

How many bricks does it take to complete a build made of brick?

Answer:

Only one - the “last” one

huh? I get it. Could someone please explain what I am missing?

The last brick needed completes the build.
It doesn’t say “How many bricks does it take to build a building”, but “How many does it take to complete a building”.

And Zootopia winning seems really dumb - even though I haven’t seen it.

Pixar usually dominates the category, but hasn’t been doing much besides sequels lately.

As you have kids, that’s kind of a surprise you haven’t seen it.

Didn’t you read Huzeniey’s review he posted here? Who would want to see Zootopia after he dropped the obviously not-crazy truth about that deviant, mind-corrupting film, much less take their kids to experience such filth?!

Most pointless SE change?
Time

Frank your Majesty said:

This would mean that at least in one of the two scenes it is a deliberate choice to recolour the sleeves. All this makes the change only more baffling to me. They took the time and attention to make these two scenes match, but broke continuity in so many other scenes

Ya know, if they only did it in one instance and not the other, I could understand that maybe they wanted to make it seem like two different lizard-men. But changing both… there’s no reasoning. It’s really the most pointless change.

David Brent: Life On The Road 2016

LOVED this! I’m a big fan of the U.K.'s The Office, but had reservations about this movie. It was nearly perfect. I had eyes full of tears at the end and laughed just about the entire runtime. Great story, great laughs, GREAT POINT to the whole thing.
I can’t recommend this enough. It’s streaming on Netflix and I think most here would feel better for having watched it.

Having just viewed the original terminator it made me think how just like Star Wars it was far ahead of its time. I also was waiting for A Digital Mans extended cut additions of the extra scenes which made a more rounded take of a true classic.

I love that edit! That the final scenes at Cyberdine (sp?) have never been added to an official release is a mistake in my opinion. Really creates a strong tie to the sequel.

Han - Solo Movie

Judge said:

I’m a bit worried about this movie for a number of reasons. Actually, worried is the wrong word. I’m far too jaded about Star Wars to worry about anything these days.

For one, I get the feeling that this film will totally ruin Han’s arc in ANH. He goes from “cynical smuggler who cares only about himself” to “rogue who sacrifices his own interests to save his friends” in the course of the film. That’s his character. If they try and make Han out to be a good guy in the standalone movie (which they will; this is Disney we’re talking about here) it will spoil his character progression. This will make his whole subplot in ANH completely pointless.

This is why I’ve said that a movie about Lando would be much better. Lando seems to have gone through the life changes we see Han make during the OT before we meet him. There’s a much better backstory to tell with Lando and, obviously, Han could still be there.

I’ll grab a digital copy until the disc has something to offer. The lack of features is disappointing, but there being a fourth Star Wars film I wanna own is neat!

^ I love that image! Makes me laugh every time.

Question- the thing with red hair, are those supposed to be the creature’s feet? Even though she’s wearin’ some kind of outfit that seems to cover her feet, it’s got toes and toenails. What’s goin’ on there?

There is no real reason for Disney to release the OUT, because then they wouldn’t have a carrot to entice people to see Episodes VIII & IX.

There is an entire generation of people under 30 who have never seen the originals or even remember them; so the SE is just how it always was and will be.

Your second sentence negates the first.
