Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Skull Island: SPOILERS
« on: March 09, 2017, 05:18:25 AM »
The wait & anticipation sure paid off...if you like the genre then this movie delivers the WOW factor.

This movie is gritty. It's got that Platoon/Full Metal Jacket vibe meets creatures from Riddick's universe.

Kong is huge!
LOL you barely see his entire figure on screen unless  it's a long shot, otherwise close-ups are just facial features or a hand or a leg stomping on something.
He's impressive but because of his sheer scale you don't get to bond or feel compassionate about him...he is a revered God to the natives on the island & a peaceful co-existence exists between the two.

There is no Beauty/Beast, hero & heroine love triangle here. Kong doesn't fall in love with Brie Larson's character, Mason. He sniffs & senses she isn't a threat & so far, that is that.

Tom Hiddleston plays the competent hero that doesn't take up too much screen time. Some moments where you can imagine him as the next Indiana...

Goodman plays the character he's famous for...likeable & trustworthy until he reveals his ulterior motives.

Samuel Jackson starts off with good intentions but slowly loses it when he realises not everything can be solved by killing...life only makes sense if it's a battle.

John C. Reilly is the comic relief but in a good way. Once you understand he's been on the island for 48 years, all his eccentricities are easily accepted.

Brie Larson isn't the damsel in distress. She's strong willed & although the starring female role, this story isn't about her & Kong.

There's one scene that's PIS & leaves you scratching your head but I won't bring it up until other peeps have watched it.

Simply, this Kong rocks!

Food and Fitness / Are Vitamins & Supplements Effective?
« on: February 08, 2017, 07:32:12 AM »
I injured my ankle about 10 years ago & it's never healed fully.
Every few months I get a sharp nagging pain that takes days to subside.
The doc says it could be arthritis setting in.

So the chick at the pharmacy gets me to buy multi vits, fish oil capsules, magnesium/citrate & glucosamine/chondroitin pills.

I've been swallowing 12 pills a day for the past several weeks & have no idea if they're actually effective or not.
Even my doc suggested they may be a waste of money...

Anyone else popping pills?

Anyone watching this?

Sci Fi drama with Thomas Jane.

Decent storyline with a heavy BladeRunner feel.

Ask The Staff / Can A Mod Update My Profile Info?
« on: October 21, 2016, 10:48:45 PM »
My email addy attached to HC is no longer valid so I can't reset my password.

I can access HC thru my pc however for some reason my phone needs to re-log & I can't do that as I've forgotten my password.

Is there any chance a Mod can re-edit my profile for me & update it with my new email address?

Cheers.

Scenes don't necessarily have to have Bats in them.
You might've hated the movie overall but liked one outstanding scene.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Gruesome Scenes.

What's the most gruesome Or disturbing scenes you've seen in a movie?

That curb stomp scene in American X still haunts me to this day.

General Chat / Facebook Recognition?
« on: April 14, 2016, 04:08:15 AM »
Does anyone know how Facebook (& I assume other social media outlets) recognise "people you may know"?

I can see the pattern of names in my phone contact list or people I've emailed in the past but then other names pop up of people I haven't seen, contacted or spoken to in over 20 years. Nor do I have these people's contacts stored in my phone or computer. And these people aren't even "a mutual friend" of someone I already know.

Considering I've only joined Facebook about 2 years ago & my current mobile no. is under someone else's name, I'm constantly surprised at the names (from my past) that constantly pop up as people I know...it's Big Brother level of scariness.

DC Drones / Killing Joke Question
« on: March 04, 2016, 10:23:29 AM »
It's prob been over 30 years since I read it but the ending always bugged me.


Was Bats laughing so hard at The Joker's joke that he was bracing himself against The Joker's chest OR was Bats actually strangling The Joker?

Just kinda seems out of place, Bats would let down his guard to find The Joker's joke hilarious. Especially after the violence done to Gotdon & Barbara...

Yet when I've asked friends the same question, they were surprised that the last panel could be also interpreted as Bats strangling The Joker. Possibly to make him stop laughing.

Any thoughts?

DC Drones / Batman's Multiple Titles.
« on: January 22, 2016, 07:50:40 AM »
Is Batman the only character that has multiple titles to its name?

I haven't bought or read a comic in ages so it was a bit overwhelming to look at all his titles & not be familiar with the continuity of the various storylines happening...

Is it overkill or does it work?

What other characters get more than one title to their name?

The latest Call Of Duty Black Ops III for the X-Box 360.

Can anyone tell me if the Zombie level is included in the disc OR does it have to be downloaded off the net?

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Movie Scenes That Gave You Goosebumps.
« on: August 11, 2015, 08:44:48 AM »
Whether it's the "WOW" or freaked out factor, what particular scene in a movie has personally affected you?

The subtle feel good ending of Birdman was a wow moment for me.

General Chat / Bitches & Money WTF?
« on: May 06, 2015, 09:00:46 AM »
So my brother works for a chain of serviced apartments in the city.
Mainly for long term residents but some rooms are rented out for overnight, short term stayers.
Very common for high end hookers to stay for a week or 2 before management catches on & asks them to leave.
Common also for drug dealers to stay & make their bulk buy or deal until their stash runs out.
Close enough to the casino also to launder their proceeds.

Anyway this chick's suppose to check out at 11am but doesn't. So my brother lets himself into her room & she's still sleeping. Gives her an extra hour to pack & leave before the maid comes in to clean & prep for the next guests.
The chick takes an hour longer but eventually leaves.

You know it's natural to sometimes forget & leave behind your toothbrush, maybe a charger left in the wall or some loose change in the drawer....
This chick leaves behind a clear plastic bag full of $50 & $100 bills.
A fucking wad 3 inches thick!

The entire hotel staff are freaking out, convinced it's drug related cash & scared of the repercussions, no one even thinking of skimming a little off the top.
After trying numerous times to call the chick up, my bro calls the cops...

I'm just thinking this chick was most likely the mule in the operation & is probably dead by now when she goes back to her boss without the cash.
Stupid bitch.

General Chat / What's The Public Perception Of You?
« on: February 10, 2015, 08:11:10 PM »
Man, this is hilarious.

I can never flag down a cab late at night. They slow down, take one look at me then drive off.

Cops will also slow down & eye me out when I'm by myself at night.

Random people ask if I'm dealing.

I make bank tellers nervous.

A crowded bus, people standing up...no one will sit next to me.


BUT if I sit by myself at a cafe having a coffee & reading a book...I become a stranger magnet.

I get gifts in the mail with a "Thanks for being there" card but no name attached to them.

Then there's the random old lady who will stop me on the street & ask if I can help her carry her groceries into her home....

How do you think the public sees you?
Or what image are you trying to project to the public?
