Vietnam War Movie Recs

Re: Vietnam War Movie Recs

My memory, for whatever that's worth, is that we talked about how we couldn't trade picks in just some rounds and not others, since I don't think that's even possible through the site. I dunno if...

This is pretty...

Leaving aside that those leagues need parity to function in a way fantasy leagues do not, they also do it because the last place team still has the same roster afterwards, so they give them a draft...

First off, thanks for the response. It's very substantive and thoughtful. :up:

We did the same thing in the previous football season. I'm sure it's come up before then, too, even though it never happened back in the day.


Because the switching has to be agreed on.

Hey Fredrick and I have swapped draft slots: he gets 2nd and I take 5th.

Re: Rank the following neo noir thrillers

Why would we want Se7en to "teach us something" as a noir? I can understand preferring films to do that sort of thing, but in the context of noir, the idea that it's going to be about hopelessness...

It's the internet, everybody's afraid their opinion will register as just another opinion (even though that's what it is), so they often toss on some ornate insult to maybe help it stand out. ;)

Re: Ford vs ferrari movie with bale/damon

I dunno, not only do you have the "new entrant" thing, you also have the fact that Ford is a collective, and at odds with itself: the "heroes" of the film are not Ford, but the two guys, the real car...

Yeah, PM me for specifics. I think we'd want a minimum of a week for organizational stuff, once the poll closes, before posting the thread and getting things started.

Re: Ford vs ferrari movie with bale/damon

Eh, I'm not sure if "underdog" can be reduced to "total size." The point of the story is that they're the underdog in this area. They make lots of cheap, slow, efficient cars for people to drive to...
