    "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones" Talkback (Spoilers)

    "His death was a necessary loss. Soon I will have a new apprentice, one far younger and more powerful." We can't say for certain that Sidious had planned quite that far ahead (though, "And you, young Skywalker; we shall watch your career with great interest."), but (at the risk of getting ahead...

    "Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones" Talkback (Spoilers)

    Even if I'm not "supposed to" I love the new trilogy (not saying anything bad about the original) and I have some thoughts on this... I always assumed Dooku was pretending to be Sifo-Dyas, but in doing a quick Google search, the expanded universe Sifo-Dyas did order the army after the Jedi...

    "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" Pre-Release Discussion (Spoilers)

    There sure are a lot of stories out about this thing (didn't realize there were still more). The thing that gives me pause about this version is Fox followed the two Transformers movies with Jennifer's Body where she played whatever that was and Jonah Hex, where she was an Old West prostitute...

    Smallville "Pilot" Talkback (Spoilers)

    I'm trying to get caught back up on Smallville talkbacks this weekend and figured I'd better start at the beginning. Mega-bump or not, I really enjoyed being able to see the pilot again. I don't own any Smallville on DVD and other than the odd in-season repeat or the season finale right before...

    "Daredevil" Reboot Pre-Release Discussion (Spoilers)

    Because you saw Eclipse and thought it was poorly directed?

    Most favorite commercial?

    Aside from the Super Bowl there aren't many great car commercials, but I love the line from a recent Acura ad (with the voice of actor James Spader)... "...If your winters are tougher than this, you don't need a new car. You need a new place to live." Sometimes, I seem to live in one of those...

    Smallville "Hydro" Talkback (Spoilers)

    I'm not trying to be overly critical of your comments, but without looking back and citing specifics, I recall some where you were more responding to the general attitude of those who posted in the thread than anything else. That's not quite asking a question, but it's kind of the same thing. If...

    Smallville "Hydro" Talkback (Spoilers)

    Geodude, if you want to offer thoughts of episodes of Smallville you have recently watched, that's fine, but I think you're going to have a hard time (and already have) getting people to engage in a discussion with you about an episode that they may not have seen in four years. If you don't...

    "Green Hornet" (Feature Film) Pre-Release Discussion (Spoilers)

    So I don't know about anyone else, but I am so excited for all-day Syfy TV series marathon tomorrow... I mean today, that I can barely sleep. I had to get up and format the talkback for it just so I could get some rest. I'll have that up tomorrow before it gets started at 10 a.m. ET. :cool:

    "Green Hornet" (Feature Film) Pre-Release Discussion (Spoilers)

    As someone who has maybe not been completely thrilled with this version of The Green Hornet, but was still very excited to see it, I was disgusted with this commercial. I was thinking some comedy was fine, but I do not need my super heroes singing along to the radio. :shrug:

    "Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark" Broadway Play Thread

    I caught it by chance and found it pretty interesting. I don't expect I will be seeing it, but I'm genuinely intrigued in a mostly good way.

    Most hated commercial? (Part 6)

    I think Snuggie must be doubling down on being annoying. They know their backwards robe is annoying, so they decided to take up another level to stay in the public eye. It's the only thing that makes sense.

    Shows that you feel really should have gone HD by now

    You must have a regular TV then because HD on an HD TV is glorious. I find even on a regular TV the image is a bit sharper, but the HD TV is what makes it worth it. Plus, broadcast networks that don't even air in widescreen/letterbox are cutting off more and more of the picture as TV shows are...

    Most favorite commercial?

    Do woodchucks chuck wood? I think we all know the answer to this. :D I am also enjoying the new Pepsi ad with the Pepsi Max truck driver and the Coke Zero truck driver in a diner. It's a new version of a Pepsi-Coke truckers 1995 Super Bowl ad. The guy behind the counter is actually the Pepsi...

    "Marvel Studios' The Avengers" Pre-Release Discussion (Spoilers)

    It's not really that surprising, Favreau may not have a long directing resume, but it includes the two Iron Man movies, which as we all know were big box office and Elf did pretty well too. As a director, Whedon, is primarily a TV guy at this point. Serenty may be loved by many here (I haven't...

    Most favorite commercial?

    I was going to have to bring this thread back by this weekend if no one else had, because GEICO has returned with a couple more "Could switching to GEICO..." ads. I haven't even seen one of them on TV yet... Did the little piggy cry wee, wee, wee all the way home? Is a bird in the hand worth...

    "Ghostbusters (2016 Movie)" Pre-Release Discussion (Spoilers)

    An issue or two ago in Entertainment Weekly there was an article about Bill Murray and how difficult he is to get a hold of since he fired his agent. It is entirely possible he doesn't actually know what is going on. Preview on

    "James Bond in Skyfall" Pre-Release Discussion (Spoilers)

    Ugh. I've heard some about this in articles about other things, but seeing it in full text is upsetting. I apparently need to do some research on this whole MGM thing, because I thought they went bankrupt years ago which is why Sony/Columbia is involved in the new films and FOX put out the...

    Most favorite commercial?

    The "Could switching to GEICO..." man is back with a new batch of my favorite commercials. :D Was Abe Lincoln honest? Does a former Drill Sergeant make a terrible therapist? Can fútbol announcer Andres Cantor make ANY sport exciting? Is having a snowball fight with pitching great...
