Re: Oscar Contest 2021

Ugh. Error with the number of best pic noms and the list isn’t in the order I usually put it in. I’ve temporarily closed voting and will fix in the morning.

Re: Oscar Contest 2021

Let me know of any issues. For the first time in decades, the Academy changed the number of categories and I had to rewrite a lot of code to account for it!

Speaking of nostalgia... one of the most watched videos in YT history was uploaded 15 years go today.

Re: Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Got my second jab today! My son had his first last week and my daughter is getting the one dose version next week. The wife got hers back in January, so that will be all of us done soon! The city I live in is already at 30% of the population having had at least one dose of vaccine, which is really g...

Re: Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Interesting article in the NYT this week about how the US and UK are in much better positions than the EU when it comes to the vaccine due to the more aggressive moves they made last year helping companies working on them. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/03/20/world/europe/europe-vaccine-rollout-astraz...

Re: Disney's Raya And The Last Dragon

Note the above HT video is FULL of spoilers!! And...it’s not so much the usual HT treatment as just a plot-picking exercise, and a pretty unfunny one at that. Whatever they say about the elements, Raya just *works* as a slice of entertainment. I’ve been thinking about this more and more today, and ...

Re: Live action Tom and Jerry Movie

Watched it the day it came out but with Raya and Spongebob out around that time too, I forgot all about this! I guess that's a pretty damning indictment there! Agree with most everything -- especially the music, and except for Chloe Grace Moretz. I thought she was charming in it and totally threw he...

Re: MoviePass lowers subscription price - dramatically!

Regal, AMC, and Cinemark all have their own monthly pass service now so not likely a repeat of their old model. I’m betting some kind of movie streaming or rental service, assuming it’s not some sham announcement.

MGM logo

Heard some negative comments about the new MGM logo, due to it being a bit much and taking away focus from Leo. But after seeing it, I really like it. I'm going to link to it rather than embed it since the video here would be lower resolution: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLR9-ymUvjE They've also...

Re: Space Jam 2

Even this week when Speedy was getting mentioned as possibly being cancelled, Mexicans on Twitter were up in arms! Sad that the studio would worry about what Hollywood thinks they would be offended by rather than asking them themselves.
