This thread is dedicated to recommending a book you read in the past year.  One book (per comment anyway). Here is my 2022 recommendation: Hail Mary by Andy Weir.  I really enjoyed his other books such as The Martian and actually liked this one better.  Would make a terrific movie as well.

I hope you enjoyed season 1 as much as I did! It's going to be a long time until season 2 so I decided to put together an 8-episode guide prediction which I'll share here. I have no inside knowledge but I have read the comic. This post has changes from the comic that I think make it more compatible with an episodic TV show. Obviously, this isn't how it will actually go down. But it is likely to go down something like this so major spoilers. Stop now if you haven't read the comic book. Spoil...

First off, we should all be ashamed that we do not already have a Breaking Bad thread. There. I've said it. We are all bad people. Terrible people really. What kind of forum doesn't have a Breaking Bad forum? I'll tell you what kind: One that has something to hide.  A forum that feels like the subject matter hits too close to home.  But the time of hiding is over. The final season is here. Discuss. Spoilers. (duh)

My hopes are so high for is movie! I'm wondering if Clark Kent (with glasses) ever makes an appearance?

Putting aside the debate over whether the  I in Into is capitalized or not, the movie was terrific. No spoilers in this post. Having managed to avoid spoilers going into the theater I was surprised again and again as the movie progressed. It’s very much a character driven story.  Sure, there are some great special effects and some surprisingly detailed depictions of Earth in the 23rd century (more than I think we’ve ever gotten in a Star Trek film). Because of th...

My wife and I saw this on Friday.  I won’t put any spoilers in this post but suffice to say I was fairly disappointed.  Tom Cruise did about all he could do with it and the production values were amazing but the story fell flat for me. 6/10.

We closed down shop last Friday and migrated to our local movie theater to see “The Hobbit”. I’m very interested in hearing what others thought.  Here are my thoughts in no particular order: I did not enjoy 3D 48fps viewing. It’s distracting The movie could be best described as giving unlimited budget and control to the ultimate Tolkien fan and letting him indulge in that. As a border-line obsessive Tolkien lore guy, I loved every single minute of the movie...

The whole Stardock gang took Friday off to go watch this. I'm a bit of a comic's nut. I'm the guy who spend $50+ a month on comic books so I very much enjoyed the Knightfall and other references and nods to different story arcs. I enjoyed the movie immensely and will likely be going back again. There was some troubling pacing and the usual frustration of "Oh come on, people with automatic weapons would solve this in a heart beat."

I've recently discovered a British show called Merlin. Anyone watch this?

Ok. So who’s going to see this? So far, I’ve managed to stay spoiler free.

My teenager son and his friend came across “Bible Man” and have put their own audio commentary on it. Warning, if you’re religious, you’ll probably find this offensive.

So who has been keeping up with this? As some of you know, the concept for the family tree in War of Magic was inspired by this series. Great series of books.
