I mean for you maybe but that logic can be used for a lot of historical things. We know the holocaust was bad. Do we need a movie about it? We know OJ did it. Did we need a mini series about it? etc, etc, etc. Entertainment in general is pointless and pretty much any subject matter would be boring if not for well a well written script.

I'm not being cold hearted...I'm just asking, why dwell on a tragic subject matter & label it entertainment?

I don't think anyone is going to deny that America still has some serious race issues going on...why stoke the fire?

Does anyone watch Broadchurch to comment on what it's like?

We're also getting the director/writer taking over The Who series, the whole franchise will definitely have a different approach to story-telling.

That's a pretty good team-up to begin with considering they'll both know each other's styles, strengths & weaknesses.

Cook up a story for him to parrot, coach him on what to say. If he says he thought his life was in danger, he can get off. It's that simple.

That's exactly how it's gonna play out & the public know that.
It's the only ploy he's got.

I know it's unprecedented but hell if I was his Union Rep, I'd be distancing myself away from him regardless if it cost me my job.

I remember copping a lot of shit saying 12 Years A Slave was a pointless movie.
I mean we already know how cruel & morally wrong slavery was...why bother making a movie to remind us of it?

Of all the different themes a movie/series can be based on why bother with an "alternative timeline" based on "what if slavery was still legal?"

Juz saying, no matter how well written or enthralling this series may be, the subject matter is boring.

A better plot would be What If this series actually set precedence to bring back slavery!

Well it's been over a week so there seems to be no time limitation to giving a statement.

I get he's entitled to Union representation but wtf are they supposed to do if he's guilty based on the few facts we know of?

Meanwhile, in Minneapolis, a woman calls a cop about a disturbance near her home. She goes out to meet them, in slippers and a bathrobe, and one of them shoots her dead. The officer already has multiple complaints against him in a career that's spanned all of two years.

I'm honestly surprised it's taken over a week to be mentioned here on HC.
Obviously we've been hearing about the incident & updates every day here in Australia...it's sad, unfortunate & mind boggling.

The mere fact that the officer refuses to give a statement & it is his legal right not to speak about is just....WTF??!!?

Also I do have sympathy for the killer cop's partner. Firstly to have been shot across whilst sitting in the passenger seat & now being placed in that situation of telling the truth & facing being labeled a snitch by his colleagues for it.

And the fucking police commissioner's statement regarding why the body cams weren't turned on....that after only 8 months in use, cops were still getting "used to turning them on" is just fucking ridiculous!

Guy Ritchie's King Arthur.

Thoroughly enjoyed it!

Surprisingly it wasn't as violent as I expected from Ritchie but it had some pretty dark imagery at times.
The fantasy elements blended nicely into the story...especially the use of creatures summoned by the mage.

Some humorous banter between the characters but casting Aidan Gillen (Petyr Baelish from GOT) as a good guy was an odd choice...kept expecting him to have an ulterior motive every time he was on screen.

I didn't like the generic army of suits Tony had to fight - it's the typical drone army that Marvel seems to do so often.

It was the highlight every IM fan wanted to see but it was also the biggest disappointment of the film.

It was a pretty tedious battle to sit through just to get to the end credits.

If that is true, as much as I love GoT, they are turning Dragonglass into the end all of plot devices, Kills white walkers and cures grey scale? And its mentioned in a book no one gets to read and some how everyone else forgot about? And there is a shit ton of it under an empty castle?

Well the Dragonglass also stopped Benjen Stark from turning into a White Walker when the Children Of The Forest shoved a shard into his chest.

But the most obvious reasoning was that Shiree Baratheon was cured of GreyScale & she lived in DragonStone...above the mine.

Haven't read the books so I don't know if this is obvious or not...

Apparently one tv fan has freeze-framed & enlarged the image of the page where Sawmill reads about Dragonglass...

It mentions, Dragonglass can cure Greyscale...which is pretty lucky considering Jorah is at The Citadel & Daenerys is at Castle Dragonstone where lis beneath a mine of Dragonglass.

I enjoyed the series as a kid but I honestly can't remember what it was about.

Really dogged the Eagle ships.

Insert montage of Peter experimenting to figure out how precisely his spider-sense works, and VOILA!

Between wet dreams, morning glories & Spidey sense...he's gonna be a very confused teenager!

You will get "citizenship" upon arrival.

"It says you're from Tatooine. What kind of Commie Land is that?"
