Re: Movie Reviews

Umbrella Academy (Netflix) Came out a while ago (Feb 2019), I'm just now getting around to it. 10 episodes long, probably should have been 5-7. Enjoyed the first 3-4, dragged a little in the middle, went cringe towards the end, and had a moment or two of "why would you do that?" and ended on a "Rea...

with transcendent devils, do you mean primal fear devils?

Re: There we go

I'm going to steal and alter Michael Malice's comment about how you know if someone is left of center or more right of center...the original statement goes something like this is: Ask someone this: Are some people better than others? (No context...just answer the question) Someone right of center w...

Re: Chainsawman

I reread the hell chapters (64-66). Makima came out ahead against the Darkness devil, who they imply is one of the transcendent devils, though he got a big stab in at the end. She also was able to command the head to speak just by touching it, and it was an enemy as well - so there doesn't seem to b...

Re: There we go

There's also some dependence on context and popularity. When you're really unpopular you're the "extremist radicals," but when you have a large enough amount of support politicians come out in droves. Most recent right one I can think of is Trump supporters. If they were extremely few I imagine they...

Re: Boku No Hero Academia

More chaos. This is getting pretty nuts. I guess the Nomus are just there to prevent the "how is Shiragaki winning against an entire hero corp" argument. Or the author having to think up more quirks for other heroes I suppose too.

Re: There we go

It's a bit more nuanced than that. There are things that BLM has been calling out that needed fixing - like police militarization. But the protests look white because the majority of people are white, especially in areas like Minneapolis. The protests in Atlanta had much larger black representation....

Re: There we go

I believe in the power of prayer and walking around the neighborhood is not a bad idea if you are keeping your distance, maybe wear a mask. Also forgive me for not knowing the abbreviations but what is MIL/FIL again? i dont think your FIL should go walking around until his isolation is over. if a b...

Re: There we go

...my wife and I had the exact same question. We got married at 26. We were super broke, so wanted to wait a little to be financially stable. By 28 we were on the upswing. At 30, we talked about it...but I had the job that had me traveling so said let's wait a little more. By 33 we were ready. Baby...

is 35 too old to start a new career? My wife and I were talking. Our daughter will definitely be a dentist. Seems like it would be completely different than Engineering.

Re: Boku No Hero Academia

I was afraid Midoriya would’ve somehow been the one to “stop” Shigaraki. Good to know that’s not the case, as for Gigantomachia and the others, I imagine that’ll be how Shigaraki avoids capture. Waiting on the new chapter, but missed your reply before - I wouldn't be surprised if Midoriya still has...

Re: There we go

I understand your point in fact my initial reaction at the charges was I thought that was a bit much. However, the AG has a case based on what he presented at the press conference. It should be noted that the AG is up for reelection, that could or could not mean anything lol. The fact that he waite...

Yeaaaah, no. Again...he shot the taser AT the cops. They aren't going to be thinking "Well, let me just get his car and..." He resisted arrest, assaulted police officers, stole a weapon from the officer and then shot it at them. Naturally they are going to give chase because they don't know what he...

Re: There we go

i think it is a reflex reaction on why they chased, someone took something of yours so your reaction is to try to get it back? I was almost robbed near chinese new year and of course the smart thing to do is to let the robber take my cell phone and replace it and blah blah because he could of serio...
