    I mean he's only gotta do one more, at least

    Does he? By the end of Wise Man's Fear there is so much ground left to cover to explain how we get to present day, trying to tackle that in one book would result in either a horribly rushed novel with godawful pacing or THE LONGEST BOOK.

    I know but it's what Rothfuss says

    Hence my concerns!

    I was really excited to read an acclaimed fantasy series with a manageable number of entries, but I don’t think there’s a single thing Name of the Wind did that I didn’t dislike.

    I gave up on it midway, so it couldn’t even give me that!

    And it's already been released! And it's already in the Criterion Collection somehow!

    also Name of the Wind is a pretty blah fantasy novel

    read The Wizard Knight by Gene Wolfe instead

    cheese pizza definitely isn't bad, but I will almost never actually order one

    but if people are having like a pizza party or something, I will be happy to see some regular cheese pizza there

    The only reason I do not order many, many cheese pizzas is because my dad thinks it's super boring.

    Cheese pizzas are great and also the best type of pizza for dipping in sauce.

    Breezing right along, I saw The Death Cure having only seen and read the first Maze Runner book/movie (hated the book, thought the movie was fun) and I don't know what I was expecting, but after the 20 minute mark The Death Cure never, ever let's up until the end. It's intense, it's visceral, it's a war movie - there's a lot to like. Cinematography is gorgeous and the only acting missteps come from the seasoned folks; Barry Pepper isn't great, Patricia Arquette is good enough, but Aiden Gillen is Just Not Good In This Movie.

    Also the movie gets a full extra point for having
    a faceless terrorist zombies leader played by Walton Goggins

    There are some pretty clever pieces of dialogue and some of the set pieces are inventive and thrilling.

    After reading the Wiki for the book, I'm glad they kind of ignored... Most of it, in favor of a movie that's just a few cuts above brainless action.

    I saw the death cure this weekend and i honestly feel like we saw different movies. This movie is terrible from start to finish. It's terribly written, it's trite, all the bad guys have high powered rifles that can never hit what they're aiming at while the heroes have pistols that shoot death lasers at people.

    It's completely predictable YA genre trash from start to finish, and it doesn't even have a maze in it

    The plot was pretty thin, but the switch from a search and rescue to a full on war zone extraction was a change I didn't see coming. Plus some of the shots at the end were really, really gorgeous.

    And the maze was definitely there when Minho was undergoing treatment.

    I think maybe I expected less going in and was pleasantly surprised.

    Edit:
    Plus, Gally's reaction to Minho's apology got a surprise bark of laughter from me.

    Minho: Sorry I impaled you with a spear.

    (Beat)

    Gally: Nobody's perfect, man.

    When I've heard him say it on streams and stuff it's "Kvote," like "quote"

    You kind of smash the "kuh" and "voh" sounds together

    It's a stupid, pretentious name.

    As long as the quality remains solid it's a win win for every one

    He gets to have fun producing weird sci fi movies and the movies themselves get a boosted profile that they likely wouldn't if they were just original titles with no name recognition

    Paddington 2 was wonderful.

    And Hugh Grant almost steals the movie. The man is delightful.

    I really enjoyed the first one.
    On a related note, I was watching We Bare Bears with my wife the other night:

    "Wait his name is Grizz?"
    "Yeah, because he's a grizzly bear."

    After a short pause, she responds, "Ah, like naming someone Hugh because they're a human, I got it."
