  1. The 13th Warrior . Birdie. I haven't seen this one in a while. It's a very solid flick for me. It's just somewhat lacking in a certain something to make it a classic. It's up there with Desperado as one of my favorite Antonio Banderas movies. Plus, who doesn't love Vikings with English and Irish accents?
  2. Just three for me : Canada, Mexico and Antigua.
  3. I had to split it up into two segments, but yeah, despite Snyders tendency for slo-mo I thought this was much better than the other version. Cyborg probably gained the most from this cut. Had a chance to watch Sunshine again for the first time in a long while. Easy par from me.
  4. That, good sir, is why I will gladly roll up my sleeve when it's my turn for a needle.
  5. Meanwhile, six weeks later, the Oilers were red hot, cooled off ( damn you Toronto!), got somewhat hot again and now are idle due to one Montreal player contracting COVID. I'm getting thrashed in my weekly fantasy hockey pool this week. I sure hope one of my four players ( neither of them are named MacDavid or Draisaitl) can save my bacon on Saturday night.
  6. This seems to be a requisite. The father of my stepkids is horrible with this stuff. So many times I've left the room as soon as I hear "Dad sent me this video". I try not to bash the guy in front of them, but I always want to reply "was it before the juggling cat video or after the one where the mom feeds her two year old wasabi?". They also always complain about mainstream media, but have no qualms about accepting crap from YouTube as the gospel. One of my daughters Facebook feeds ( she's been unfollowed for a while now) is literally the False Facts video has been removed pictu
  7. In our mens league we golfed a few times against a guy who looks like the above picture. No follow through in his swing at all, but man could he muscle some shots far.
  8. The first episode of For All Mankind dropped on Apple TV yesterday. I started to watch it, but I realized I have to watch season 1 again, because I’ve forgotten most of what happened.
  9. Ooh, thanks, I haven't watched that one in ages. I finally watched the Godfather for the first time a couple years back. I'll say this, it's better than the Deer Hunter.
  10. Casablanca and Gone With The Wind are on my list as well. I'll add The Color Purple Dr Strangelove ( I own the damn thing, but I repeatedly fall asleep after ten minutes) Seabiscuit The Blind Side I have also never watched any of The Fast And Furious series
  11. That's the setup on my golf cart. Full enclosure, propane heater, spare bottle just in case. The beginning and end weeks of our men's league can be brutally cold.
  12. I've really been having issues hitting behind the ball lately. I'm going to give this a try.
  13. I hope it happens, but wouldn't be surprised if it didn't. Granted, it's from crap I've read on the internet, but some of the smaller market teams actually want to shut down, as opposed to having to carry a full salary payroll with reduced, if any, profits. As an Oilers fan, I'd love to be able to see more games than two against Toronto and Montreal.
  14. Ravenous is one of my favorites. Thanks for the mention, it's time to dig the dvd out of the basement and give it a whirl again. I wasn't impressed with Bone Tomahawk, but I was shocked by that one scene.
  15. Anyone else get their email reminder to make picks for tomorrows tournament? I didn't.
  16. The Taking Of Pelham 123(1974) Eagle I'd never seen this before, but man was I impressed. This one is all thriller, no filler.
  17. I dunno, I seem to have a pretty solid lock on DFL at the moment. B
  18. The Day After (1983) Par. Made for tv movie from the Cold War era about what would happen to the States if Nukes were used in war. For '83 and a being on network television, this one wasn't bad. The visuals are obviously dated, but still worth a watch. There's a fair number of current actors who you'll recognize, too. Threads (1984) Birdie. This was the English take on the same subject, except shot with way less money and it followed a somewhat different direction than TDA. Honestly, I 'liked' this one more, although I have to admit that this is an even darker, bleaker take than
  19. I'm going to watch episode five in the next few days. I'd think this show was more weird that it is if I hadn't watched The Wicker Man last weekend. Amateurs. Don't get your hopes up on that one. The creator has pretty much put the nail in that coffin. I still can't understand the makeup used in season 2. I still can't fathom the decision to paint |Anna Torvs face that hideous off yellowish color.
  20. I watched it once, and once only. I caught a few minutes on cable a few years back, but quickly switched to something else. I watched Rising Sun dozens of times back when we had one of those old school huge satellites. Had a really good Connery 'kohi' impersonation for a while, too. It's been forever since I've seen a lot of his movies. Sounds like a good time to revisit a few.
  21. I actually liked the League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I kind of gave up on Connery after The Avengers, but all is forgiven now.
  22. Good for Bubba to speak out about his problems, and it's even better that he's found his own way of dealing with his anxiety. What struck me as somewhat odd is that there's not much mention of any sort of professional therapy. From my own experience, I've found it quite helpful, though damn expensive.
  23. Midway - Par. Fine performances from a well stacked cast. Never boring nor slow, yet it still seems to be missing that little thing that makes a good film great. Ed Skrein didn't wow me as the male lead, but he was still decent.

    NHL 2019-20

    Well crap, Tampa is still partying, and the Oilers next season is already looking gloomy. McDavid just tested positive for the 'Rona, and the teams closest thing to a number one d-man reportedly has an arthritic shoulder. Business as usual...
  25. @khalespace, if you haven't checked this site out already, do so. It's an easy home run for resources with a good membership base. Also, although I have neither the Mevo+ nor the Skytrak yet, from what I've learned the Mevo requires a fair bit of space to be used. Skytrak has a three or four second delay after each shot, which turns a lot of people off. And if you haven't finished your garage yet, it may be a good idea to plan ahead for some of the requirements you'll need. I finished my garage two years ago with a simulator being the end goal , (well that and heating the da
