    I don't know where else to post this but can anybody who has ever had their hair cut on a black barbershop give me an over/under on the number of Peter Rabbit Blu Ray covers hung up on the wall?

    I drive by one fairly often, and I can confirm the random placement of Spider-Man/Marvel stuff. At night you can see inside quite easily, and they definitely have this vibe at that location.

    I watched John Carter since we were talking about it here recently and it's on Netflix

    It was actually rather fun, I will admit to a fondness for that kind of pulpy swashbuckling nonsense, and I gotta appreciate that Stanton got a huge budget to make a movie about a thing he personally loved and was excited to do. shame it didn't work out for him

    the barber I go to has some couches and stuff, TVs, and definitely a big appreciation for Marvel movies, but they also have mirrors and regular barber stuff.

    last time I went, they were watching Return of the King and my barber finished but I stayed to watch the end with them.

    "my friends, you bow to no one."

    "HOBBITS GETTIN' THEIR RESPECT, FINALLY!" cried one of the couch guys.

    I bought a collection of the John Carter books because the old copies my dad gave me were approaching "has to be kept in a climate controlled case and you can't touch it with bare hands lest your oils rot the page" territory

    on the front of the dust jacket it says "now a major motion picture!" ah sweet innocence.

    John Carter was a good movie that was hindered by the fact that no one remembers A Princess of Mars so no one knew who the fuck John Carter was. They should have just named it after the books, at least then there'd be an interesting title to pique curiosity.

    I saw Birds of Prey. Overall I ended up liking it quite a bit. Harley Quinn is nowhere on my favourite DC characters list and I hadn't watched Suicide Squad, but Margot gradually won me over. The rest of the cast I loved from the get go, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as the Huntress was fantastic.

    The fight scenes were also inspired, Chad Stahelski (John Wick) being involved was a smart choice.

    The fight in
    the prison with the sprinklers is something I'm going to think about for a while, to say nothing of the funhouse.

    Maureen Dowd completely missing the point of the movie is unsurprising, and yet how she phrases it is totally shocking.

    here's the dope ass fight scene from yes, madam i keep talking about

    https://youtu.be/EM6ydVoBrhk

    This movie fucking rips.

    Michelle Yeoh has had one of the wildest careers I can think of. The god damn range she has. Has anyone been so successful as both a Hong Kong action star and as an international dramatic actor?

    there's a scene that involves raw sewage

    it's not super grotesque but it's definitely meant to be gross

    Yeah, maybe. He likely has the bigger action legacy, but she might have more of a dramatic legacy, at least internationally.

    But I can’t stand to put them against each other like this. They’ve been through too much together.

    Honestly the bit that got to me worse than that was
    when the Parks are discussing how Mr Kim smells. I dunno why but that got to me. It was like I could smell the mouldy radish smell they were describing.

    Plus Disney wasn't brave enough to shoot a major motion picture where all the characters had their jibblies and bits out the whole time.

    That was gross in a society way, the flood scene is gross in a squishy way

    All these years and I've been thinking it was a spin-off about Noah Wyle's ER character

    Yes but the core message of the film is that
    Capitalism makes us all into parasites in some form or another. Either we callously leech off society, or we fight over scraps from the table.

    yeah, the title of the movie is purposefully ambiguous as to who parasite refers to for a reason

    I saw Downhill, the Julia Louis-Dreyfus/Will Ferrell remake of Force Majeure

    It was...fine, it was a louder and dumber version of Force Majeure that was half an hour shorter and in that 30 minutes cuts out a few of the most interesting sequence of the original, one of which is the one that makes the whole thing come together, and adds in some completely forced and unneeded backstory to a really simple story

    It wasn’t a waste of my time or anything but it certainly wasn’t great

    The Hunt for Red October is pretty good if you can get past Sean Connery's russian accent.
