    2019 NBA All-Star Weekend Events (merged)

    So, I wonder what the Venn diagram looks like for folks who watch pro wrestling and those who enjoy the All-Star game. Seriously, not throwing shade. Your comment about "getting something different out of it" made me wonder about different individuals and their expectations and enjoyment of...

    what was the last movie you watched?

    You planning on sharing any particular thoughts or insights about these movies? That is kind of the point. I know these movies exist. It would be nice to get some kind of opinion of whether they are worth watching. I don't think anyone watches this thread just to get a straight list of what...

    OK....whatever. I don't see why anyone in a dunk contest who can't complete a dunk (especially with 4attempts!) should get any points. Do the 3 point shooters get partial credit for misses? Not arguing with you, just stating the stupidity of the rules they implemented for the contest.

    I had paused the TV to do something and came back to watch the skills and 3-point contest. I skipped ahead and saw someone trying a dunk. Like 4 times in a row. Missed the same freaking dunk 4 times. And still got 30+ points?!?!? Absolutely stupid. Turned it off for good.

    2019 NBA All-Star Weekend Events (merged)

    I refuse to watch the games. The lack of anything resembling actual basketball just turns me off. And the stupid dunk contest rules they have now make that boring. I like the 3 point competition, or at least I will until they find a way to screw that up, too. Skills competition is OK as...

    what was the last movie you watched?

    Oh, and I saw Alita: Battle Angel last night. Seemed to wander that boundary between a young adult film and something more substantial, but did neither in a very convincing manner. Seemed just a bit off on the dialogue or pacing at times, but I found it to be something different and overall...

    what was the last movie you watched?

    And I get that, too. But it really has turned me off of most "based on reality" movies. I know I miss a lot of good movies for that reason, but the intentional use of a movie as "propaganda" really rankles me. Be fair and stick to the story as best you can without intentionally making one...

    what was the last movie you watched?

    And it is stuff like this that really turns me off to "based on the real thing" movies. It absolutely chaps my hide that they feel like they are free to change "real life" stuff to make something interesting or push an agenda. Look, I get it. It's a movie. You have time constraints and you...

    Kings Magic Number for Playoffs?

    I think there is a certain time frame set aside as part of the collective bargaining agreement that teams can't hold organized practices, etc. I bet the players could organize something themselves if they want, but they probably can't have a coach there running things, etc. You aren't going to...

    Maybe. I only watch the events that Kings players are in most years. The laugher that the AS game has become completely turns me off. I want to see players actually trying instead of forming dunk lines.

    what was the last movie you watched?

    Here is a sample. Yes, I'm an engineer. Way too organized for my own good sometimes. I don't get rid of much. But I also don't have some of these movies any more. I think we've purged a few times over the years....

    Welcome mr barnes

    Yeah, I don't know. Attitude might be a problem. May not fit in. I don't know that the coach and management are both on board with this trade. Might want to waive him just to be safe. ;)

    what was the last movie you watched?

    Yeah, but I've divested myself of all my VHS (I think...) and my current library is both DVD and BR. I had a list I made in a spreadsheet a long time ago.... Ha! Found it! In 2003 I had 129 movies. I was even keeping track of the studio, rating, WS/P&S, audio format, length, year, etc. I...

    what was the last movie you watched?

    Hadn't thought about that, but thanks for the recommendation. I'll check it out. Likely have over 300+ movies myself, would be nice to have a database/list!

    What Deal Would You Make for Otto Porter?

    Don't be that guy. That's lazy. If you are putting it out there, throw up a link. Or if you saw it on a show, say what show and when. Don't make others do the work to verify your statement. It's not that hard to do a freaking copy-paste, is it?

    NFL thread (2018-2019)

    That was definitely part of it. But it was indeed a boring game (very little scoring, relatively few first downs, and a whole bunch of punts, many downed without a return attempt), a lousy halftime show, and a very poor crop of commercials. And I never was really in the running to hit on any...

    Porzingis to Dallas (split/merged)

    That's why he'll be a great fit in Dallas. At least if you ask me. Any time another team in the west adds bad players, I'm all for it.

    What's your guess for February?

    I'll try being a bit optimistic again and say 4-6. 3-7 more likely but I hope they can pull out something unexpected at least once this month.
