I'm still waiting to see if my attempts to sign up for EI have gone through or not. Phone lines are impossible to get through.

@  furrykef : (23 March 2020 - 05:58 PM)

There's talk that they may have found a cure for the virus. Here's hoping.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 07:27 PM)

Yeah, our D&D sessions and just going out for drinks at local breweries is basically gone right now. We're thinking of doing remote sessions but it's still not the same.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 03:28 PM)

It just sucks cause my friends and I can't do our usual weekend stuff cause most of the restaurants we go to are closed or takeout only

@  furrykef : (22 March 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I know exactly how you feel.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Yeah, there's a part of me that, as an introvert, should be totally OK with the concept of staying home. But there's also a huge part of me that is incredibly unnerved by the concept of having the choice taken away. Before, it felt like something I wanted to do, but now it just feels lonely and sad.

@  A Fox in a D... : (22 March 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Ah, no worries. Thanks for clarifying. <3

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:31 AM)

I absolutely recognize that this is going to have a change in how we do things, for better or for worse. There's going to be some positive changes out of this and some negative changes as well. I get this is something we haven't seen in 100 years.

 

If I came off as insensitive, I should apologize and explained what I meant a bit more.

@  Wulfsbane : (22 March 2020 - 05:23 AM)

You misunderstand. My daily life consists of me going to work and going home. When I order food out I usually get take out anyways. See I work 2nd shift so my options of what I can/can't do is limited by time anyways and hasn't effected me as much, the only real thing being I can't sit down at the diner when I get out at 11pm-12am on a Friday night. So when I say I'm not changing much of my daily life it's because my routine is at a point where my interactions with people, in person, are limited to begin with

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Regardless of how you feel Covid affects you personally, there's an absolute change this puts on everyone globally, especially small businesses and at-risk people. It will influence how we look at the media landscape, how we deliver entertainment and services, and workplace practices going forward, some long term, some short, some good and some bad. These sort of pandemics don't come around with zero wake, and we've already seen that and are seeing it right now. If you don't think anything is different, then you aren't looking hard enough.

@  A Fox in a D... : (20 March 2020 - 10:09 AM)

No, Covid is it's already costing businesses and lives, and it's made life difficult for just about everyone I know, particularly in my industry where we've having to scramble to ship games from home. What you're doing is unwise and irresponsible, and you're not the only person in existence, so you can keep your "not really".

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2020 - 08:57 PM)

Not really. I'm still going about it as if nothing's different

@  GetCrazyWith... : (18 March 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Covid is going to screw up all our lives

@  RedAuthar : (17 March 2020 - 09:43 PM)

I know your pain Ben, I know your pain...

@  Shadow : (16 March 2020 - 08:13 PM)

Lucky you.

@  Wulfsbane : (16 March 2020 - 05:16 AM)

I still gotta work

@  A Fox in a D... : (16 March 2020 - 12:03 AM)

It's only boring if you make it so. I'm stuffing my quarantine with as much art as I can muster.

@  furrykef : (13 March 2020 - 07:16 AM)

Stupid COVID-19 got chess club canceled. I guess I should prepare myself for a particularly boring next few months.

@  furrykef : (24 February 2020 - 08:05 PM)

But I must say I don't get the hype. I think its pacing was bizarre, and it didn't seem to know whether it wanted to be a full-blown musical or not.

 

o.O; I thought the same thing after I saw it...especially about the weird pacing. Didn't mind Olaf tho'.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2

8/10

A solid sequel from Marvel that captures the same fun as the original. It was nice that we finally got a villain who wasn't there to be a scowling bad guy to be blown up like other throw away Marvel villains. Kurt Russel as Ego was great in his role, and seemed perfectly reasonable in his goals up until one pivotal moment I won't spoil. The ultimate scene stealer was Yondu who every scene he had was filled with laughs. Although, I feel this film is not quite as good as the first one. The character Nebula felt dry and didn't bring much to the film, as I feel more time should have been dedicated to exploring Ayesha who was nothing more than a golden piece of wood. The middle half of the film drags once the characters visit Ego's planet and kind of sit around for a while. The appearance of Sly Stallone in the movie was a surprise, who I hope will return in a sequel. One of the stronger Marvel films to come out in recent years.

Stallone isn't just a cameo either. His character is a legit one right outta the comics. An important one too. There's a good chance he and his team will be back.

Alien Covenant

5/10

I found this a rather mediocre sequel that failed to do anything overly new with the Alien creature or the world. What Ridley Scott here has done is continue his Prometheus story,only this time make David the main character who is also the villain. This film on its own feels about on par with the last one, only with more of the xenomorph actually in it. Any intrigue he established in the last movie with the engineers is written off in a abrupt flashback which seemed to only add more disappointment to them as poorly thought out in general, with fans having much more interesting ideas of where to have taken them. Rather than focus on the fear of the Alien being an unstoppable horror and surprising us with new things from it, Ridley Scott has turned his sci fi tale into a self indulgent story about creationism. I find the character David an allegory for how egotistical and up his own ass the director is. Making bible references in your sci fi horror is not deep or meaningful. It's tripe. Just like this movie.

Leo the Lion (2013). A film I was more or less dared to watch. I don't think I can give it a rating because it is so incomprehensibly bad that it's good. Kind of like Sharknado, but in an entirely different league of bad. I recommend watching it for the sheer WTF factor, which increases exponentially with running time. If you get motion sickness or are easily disoriented, I recommended skipping the first 90 seconds.

Shin Godzilla

6/10

Well I had some hype for this movie, as this was a radical new take on Godzilla. After all these years Toho finally took a risk on reinventing Godzilla to be something different than the same old lizard that saves humanity from another monster. While this new version I feel is not as cool looking as the Legendary Godzilla, it does have an interesting evolution. What ultimately is wrong with the movie is the complete hollowness of it. Their are no real characters set up, as they are just walking mouthpieces who sit down and talk about government things for most of the movie. What should have been witnessed is more carnage from the ground view of people being trapped and crushed in the devastation left behind, holding back on what the aftermath of disaster survivors go through and the trauma that no real Godzilla movie has yet to touch. The effects for a japanese film were pretty good considering this Godzilla was CGI...although its smaller forms do look incredibly dodgy. The climax of the movie was very anti-climatic with Godzilla not so much defeated but temporarily halted until the next movie rolls around. It feels relatively on par with the last American remake, and could use some fun the 1998 remake had.

Saw the new Sonic movie with my 3 year old daughter. Now, I have been so far removed from anything Sonic for a good decade now so I have to admit I went into this feeling very happy sharing an old favourite character with my little girl without having an ugly 'oh this better not fucking suck' attitude.

My daughter loved it. Of course she loved. It was a kids movie through and through.

And me? Well, what can I say? I loved every minute of it too, watching it through her delightful and innocent eyes. We both had a very good time.

Prime, old boy. How are you mate?

Such a fun movie we had to see it twice. Completely missed the after credits scene the first time. Very nice touch. Also, did I see echidnas attacking Sonic during the opening scene?

Things been pretty good this end good sir, just the same old same old this end. Still doing the convention circuit and collecting the autographs. Actually managed to meet the man... Or would that be "Shape" himself, Nick Castle a couple of years ago.

 

And yeah that was some Echidnas at the beginning of the movie. No doubt Ken Penders popped a chubby over that.

You sonovabitch. Choke on that autograph along with your damn pulse rifles. Still need to watch that new Halloween...

Good to see you're still poking around mate; It's been a life time or two.

Yes... Penders. I'm tipping he's looking for a new lawsuit as we speak.

You think that's bad? I got a Good Guys doll sitting in the corner of my room too. :P

 

And yeah you should totally check out the newest Halloween movie. It was actually pretty damn awesome and Nick Castle even returned to play The Shape for one scene too. Better be quick about it as a sequel is releasing later this year.
