I’m watching MST3K The Touch of Satan and I recognized a name in the opening credits of the movie: Director of Photography Jordan S. Cronenweth. Eleven years after shooting The Touch of Satan, he shot Blade Runner.

Last Jedi retailer exclusive packaging for BD (and 4k!) leaks. Hopefully the standard release just has theatrical release art as with TFA and RO.

Here’s the standard art:

Wtf is a “multi screen edition” and is there a normal edition without the lame border? Also, the last two SW movies included a DVD with the Blu-Ray, so why stop now? Is it just no longer worth it for them to print more DVDs?

Han - Solo Movie ** Spoilers **

I don’t see why that would delay a trailer, unless they really want to include the words “From Director Ron Howard” in it or something.

I’m not a fan of men who needlessly get paid billions of dollars just to give each other degenerative brain diseases.

If I could, I would dismantle every sports organization on the planet. They’re disgusting glorifications of barbarism and cruelty.

If only it were possible for all teams to lose all of their games, then everyone would be disappointed. That’d sure make me happy.

Hamlet (1990) - 3.5/5

MST3K (movies rated on own merits)
Hamlet (1961) - 2/5
(would be lower if not for Ricardo Montalban being the voice of Claudius in this dub)
Girl in Gold Boots - 0.5/5
Time Chasers - 1/5

Terrible DVD/Blu-ray Cover Art
Time

I assume that cover is rather indicative of the product, and doesn’t seem particularly ugly by any compositional standard, so… what’s the problem? Not a fan of the corny tagline?

The Place to Go for Emotional Support

Hi again. I’d like to thank everyone for the well wishes, and return such wishes, especially to Bingo right now.

Some new developments have come up recently with Phil, which is not his name, but what I will call him for the remainder of this post. I came out to Phil a couple of days ago. Crush notwithstanding, we’ve been good friends for a while and I figured it was okay to tell him. He said he already suspected for a while, which struck me as odd, as all my other irl friends who are currently in-the-know seemed to be surprised by my coming-out. Phil went on to say that he had-and I promise, I’m not making this up-been analyzing my sense of humor for months and reached the conclusion that I wasn’t straight. The next day, I apologized for coming out (I apologize for everything regardless of whether I have any reason to, it’s a thing). He replied by saying, “no, no, this is good!” and gave me a surprisingly enthusiastic smile and thumbs up.

He never said anything about his own sexuality, though. Maybe I’m looking too hard into this out of desperation, but straight guys don’t tend to analyze their bros’ sexuality, right? That isn’t exactly a “no homo” thing to do. Also, a mutual friend told me Phil’s never seemed interested in girls, and they’ve known each other years longer than I have.

So now I just… ¯\ _(ツ)_/¯

Star Wars &quot;Official&quot; Canon Content Thread

The main Star Wars comic is pretty good as well, but apparently it goes down hill, especially in the art department.

I quit picking it up after issue 12 because I thought the story got dumb, but Stuart Immonen (Superman: Secret Identity) was the artist on #8-12 and it was fantastic. I can see how it would be downhill from there.

Hey everyone, life is shitty, so it’s time for a rant!

For nearly ten years, my parents forced me to compete in local swim teams. I always hated it, and was always vocal about it, but they didn’t care. Not too long ago, they finally let me quit. All it took was the threat of suicide, which I was seriously considering at the time for several reasons. Today, I was guilted back into swimming by my sobbing mother who just wanted to see her little boy finish his senior swim season.

In other news, I’ve suddenly fallen pretty hard for a guy. He’s probably straight, but even if he isn’t, any relationship I pursue with him would result in my execution and subsequent trip to hell. I continue to daydream nonetheless, and hope God has mercy on my soul whenever I do die.

I also need to apply for college scholarships, because I still haven’t done that.

Could you tell me a little bit more about Brazil?

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh… Monty Python’s 1984? Yeah, I’ll go with that.

Does that have anything to do with George Orwell’s 1984 novel? Thanks, by the way!

Yeah, that what I was saying. It’s not actually an adaptation or anything, but shares antitotalitarian themes.
