Nope. It's how I talk to users who try to stir up trouble, start arguments without seeing them through, and talk rudely to others.

Yeah, it's smart.

Gunn is pretty good at a few things, and those things have the effect of elevating lesser-known heroes or franchises. He can do weird stuff well. But I think, unless he has...

Re: The MoFo Top 100 of the 2010s Countdown

Sometimes, when there's a lot of similar films (like the LOTR films), one of them comes to act (even with no coordination) as a stand-in for the whole. I guess in this case it was too hard to decide...

Re: Sigma Male, "Cool" Pyschopaths: Jordan Belfort, Pat Bateman, Joker

My very general, first-blush thought is that this is a transitionary thing: for a very long time the protagonist was the good guy, and as the art form(s) (television in particular) evolved it began...

That's what the Oscar chat is: one big group cringe/eye-gouge.

James Gunn: has DC found its Feige?

Some interesting things here. The headlines (for me, at least):

Flash movie to kick things off (after a few smaller/animated things).
