I think you have a bit of a problem there @jlw


#3

I like movies?


#4

You like A MOVIE a little too much?


#5

I’m just offering the best pairing, not declaring a preference.


#6

I still think someone missed an opportunity when they neglected to title that film Destroy All Aquanazis!


#7

What are these “rainy days” of which you speak?


#8

I get lots of them… though I didn’t watch Das Boot today. I watched The Black Hole which was pretty to look at but so obvious they had no clue at all how to end the movie.


#9

What? It’s gotta be fall into a black hole, right? I mean, everything goes in eventually so the audience is expecting to go there.


#10

no more like the an angel like being escorts the heroes through a heavenly passage to a white hole and some planet and the villain ends up in some hell lake of fire and all the trimmings. which is kinda WTF?


#11

That’s kinda judgey, black hole.


#12

Wasn’t really clear who the bad guys were. Seemed to me the Palomino crew interrupted a late stage, privately funded, research expedition because they disagreed with how the Cygnus ran.

Robots were cute tho.


#13

But if does happen to be raining, Blade Runner.


#14

Titanic


#15

Late stage capitalism?
