Why would you say that? Dredd didn't take its inspiration, plot, action set-pieces and tone from Diehard did it? But it did take them from The Raid... The Raid 2 is a similar movie with a larger...

This is an interesting question... Does the Columbo character have two eyes or one? i.e. Is Falk's glass eye playing the role of a real eye?

Re: Will Amy Shumer lose weight?

This is a fantastic thread; although I am more interested whether or not she will lose her plagiarist writers.

I think they should have gone older with the Spiderman casting... yes I know Andrew Garfield is 55, but he was playing a college student.

I love the grounded Marvel shows on Netflix.

DareDevil is a 9/10 for me, great pacing, great plot, great arc, great action.

Jessica Jones is a 7.5/10 for me, purely because it lost its way a...

I think I have made a friend.

It is funny that you would obsess on the Ghostbusters trailer and then turn the subject; some might argue that you are a contrarian... some might. Not me of course....
