  1. And....I just survived another round of cuts. This one has to do with consolidating two of our core business units. Lots of IT jobs are going away on this one, but I've been told I'm one of the "out-of-scope" jobs, meaning they're keeping me in my position. This one was the scariest ever. (I probably say that for all of them) Thought for sure they would give our databases to an offshore firm this time. Carlos.
  2. Any new updates on The Abyss on blu-ray/UHD? Carlos.
  3. Keen to hear your thoughts on A Cure for Wellness. Oh yeah, well Chicken Pizza, bitches! Carlos.
  4. Train To Busan - Not a single gun fired, nor a bladed weapon used. Even the handy-dandy baseball bats were used sparingly. There's only so many times you can watch a door being closed in the nick-of-time before you get bored. While normally I really like fast-moving zombies in zombie movies, the pacing of the movie did not work for me. The attempts to tug at heartstrings were too drawn out and ineffectual as well. I give it 2 out 5 Seoul-less Monsters. Carlos.
  5. I do thank you, because 7DIH had escaped my radar somehow. But I stand by TDP being funnier. It slayed me in ways not seen since Airplane, Something About Mary, and Arrested Development. Carlos.
  6. Please tell Dale that the scene where Vinny first comes to meet the guys in the cell is my favorite comedic "misunderstanding" scene ever. And also when the incredulous Brooklyn-style exclamation "I shot the clerk!?" Is read back in court as a matter-of-fact confession, we'll that's just genius. Carlos.
  7. This sports mockumentary is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. Please go watch it immediately. Carlos.
  8. Did they put the guns back in E.T.? I seem to recall Spielberg saying he regretted tinkering with his movie like that. Carlos.
  9. Wow! All over that. Thanks for the head's up! Carlos.
  10. "It's an industry term." -- Mona Lisa Vito. Carlos.
  11. A Cure for Wellness - The first 3rd of this movie is absolutely brilliant, combining some gloriously well-shot scenes, allegorical imagery, rising tension, and an unsettling dread. Then it loses nearly all the well-earned psychological mind-fuckery, and becomes just another fantasy-mystery movie. I give it 3 out of 5 eel-gotten gains. Carlos.
  12. And that's why we keep renting them. It's like a gateway movie. Carlos.
  13. 50 Shades Darker - A little steamier than the first, but still mostly garbage. I give it 2 out of 5 missing billiard balls. Carlos.
  14. Logan - Sure it was gritty and violent, but it just didn't deliver any thrills aside from shooting and slashing. Also, the plot was very direct and devoid of any surprises. I give it 2 out of 5 Mostly Mute Mutants. Life - I'd like the two hours of mine back, please. A Martian octopus battles a bunch of really stupid, really selfish astronauts. But, some of them were Russian so maybe they were colluding with the alien, I don't know. I give it 1 out of 5 votes for a Russian Water Tentacle. Carlos.
  15. I have the Roku 4 and the FireTV. I give the FireTV the edge because you can install KODI on it, and it opens up a world of possibilities. Think of Usenet - anything you would be able to find there, you will be able to find on the KODI apps.. Bearing in mind that i'm strictly a 1080p shop, I think they are about equal on picture quality.. Twitch is too wide on the Roku, and I haven't been able to figure out how to shrink it to fit my TV. Netflix and all the others are fine, however. My main gripe with the FireTV is really, really bad Judder when scenes pan, whether watching netflix, or Amazon Prime shows. It's so bad it infuriates me. But, I just recently discovered a hidden option to set it to 24 Fps, but I can't say for sure how well it works just yet. Carlos.
