    I replaced the backbone of my media server and have this upgraded ReadyNAS Pro stocked with a dump load of movies, videos, and TV shows. When I got the NAS I immediately replaced the CPU with a Intel Core2 Quad and added the maximum amount of RAM possible (8GB). The thing has been a bulletproof workhorse. It'll come in RAID5 X-RAID 13+TB redundant volume built from 6 WD Red 4TB drives. I'll probably end up throwing it up on eBay minus the media files, but who knows, maybe someone here wants an instant movie/TV collection of the gods. If it goes to eBay I'll wipe the volume, but this seems like a colossal waste - The collection is the result of over a decade of collecting. It has movies from all over the place, with a bunch of hard-to-find gems. I would literally go through greatest lists (cult classics lists, movies that never made it to DVD lists, horror lists, even RomCom lists, I didn't give a damn - all hunted down and added everything I came across that sounded interesting or had some cultural value.) The NAS has tons of horsepower to be the media server supporting your connected media player, home theater system. We homeschool our kids, so there's even a ton of instructional videos, documentaries, and audiobooks not included in the above totals. So if one of you hip cats can appreciate what's going on with this thing, shoot me an offer for just the hardware (I'll just leave the media on the volume, it doesn't have a value). Drop me some questions. If no one bites in a week, c'est la vie. (Before you ask, I upgraded to a ReadyNAS 626X, 10TB Red drives and converted the collection and NAS to a Plex server)

    Wow, Romier. You and I agree on almost every point about these Marvel Netflix shows. When has that happened? I bet we dress the same too.

    Really liked this one a lot. Just some mild problems with it, but I liked the twists, and loved the fierceness of it. I especially liked the homages to the original, like why the fuck were some kids denied trick-or-treating--That poor kid was sent to bedtime while the whole rest of the town were still getting candy!? I got scared a few times, and felt a good deal of tension. A worthy sequel to the first. The on screen murders were viscious, and managed to match the 1970s shock value effect, with modern-day brutality. I give it 4 out of 5 Friendzone Escapees. Carlos.

    Transformers: The Last Knight - I saw this movie as part of my Prime subscription. I think they owe me money.

    Blumhouse already admitted that they started work on the sequel, read that earlier in the week, and with this opening, expect it to be fast-tracked, big time! I liked it. Wife and daughter LOVED it! And my wife does not like horror movies whatsoever, but she raved about it. Guess I won't have to argue buying the UHD when it comes out.
