      I think Sony is operating at an extreme disadvantage and being stupid, as usual. Spidey can be sectioned off if need be from the larger MCU, and Spidey's supporting cast can be kept to his films. But I don't think it will come to that.

      Spiderman's main connection to the MCU was Tony Stark, so if they do lose rights to him they have already mined most of that material anyway.

      Can't Disney just buy Sony? They practically own the rest of our souls already.

  2. For some reason I woke up reminded of Katie Holmes' masterful ploy that got full custody of her daughter away from Tom Cruise and the CoS in a lightspeed divorce. Quietly keeping an apt in NYC and taking work that filmed there, and doing it all in record time before he knew what hit him. If you told me Katie fuckin' Holmes would be the woman to outwit Scientology I'd never have believed you. A move worthy of the soaps.

      I heard that GH has its 2-bit cult story but somehow I think that they lack the imagination or creativity to write something akin to the Katie Holmes story. That story is more classic daytime soap (i.e. 30 years ago).  Maybe a good primetime soap on AMC, Netflix, Amazon or Hulu.

  3. Yoof Twitter embracing The Golden Girls on Hulu makes me happy.

      I signed up a month ago to watch Handmaiden's Tale and saw TGG.  I was over the moon.  I just need to remember that damn password!  

  4. Adrian Lyne is making movies again and I'm excited. He's never been given enough credit.

  5. Guess I slept through the spam. Can someone explain the mess this time?

      Someone came on and started posting thread after thread in the Spoilers and Off Topic pages.  Pushed all the real stuff off of the first page of each.  I think the script was in Japanese?  Not sure tho.

      Chinese characters, I'm pretty sure, which makes sense considering that China, as well as Russia and the U.S. are countries that have become known for producing hefty amounts of spam and malware.

  6. RIP Russi Taylor

      Totally Minnie was one of my favorites back when I was a kid.

      Like, I get that the character may be the lead, but after the stories about her being hell on that set as well, there's the fact that I'm sorry, but she is not a bigger name than J. Lo yet.

      It seems like she hides behind "driving representation for Asian Americans in media" to excuse her bad behavior. Despicable.

      She's always been like this.

      Well, you know you're a lunatic when your ex accuses you of adopting a baby and passing it off as your own.  But reading about the weight loss and inability to remember lines or blocking makes me wonder if something else isn't going on beneath the expected tantrums.

      @Khan Agreed, this is long-standing lunacy mixed with pills, booze, and age-related dementia. I believe she has been in an assisted living facility for over a decade -- she's not that old or immobile, but assisted living says to me that she needs to be monitored 24/7 and has done for some time.

       

      Sad to hear about her being like this. I know she's always been cray, but she remains one of my fave actress from the late 60s and 70s.

  7. I may not care for Riverdale but having Shannen Doherty guest star to headline their Luke Perry tribute is a classy touch.

  8. Dawnn Lewis is in the new animated Star Trek series! That takes me back.

  9. Federal charges for R. Kelly. That's All Folks!

    1. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      It's what Kelly deserves.  Hopefully the young ladies who are still under his influenced can be rescued.

      Jeffrey Epstein needs to face a similar fate and Weinstein needs to face some serious punishment as well.

      *Stefano DiMera voice* Throw him out the window...now. In all seriousness, these people really do need to be punished seriously and be in prison for the rest of their lives.

      Yep.  And again, there's more where those came from.

      The seismologists missed the mark by saying that the 6.4 earthquake was a culmination.

  11. Our newest SON member is trying too hard.

  12. Very pleased with a certain Stranger Things 3 spoiler.

      Well, that should be fun and exciting to watch.  [/sarcasm]

      CC really had an It Factor that went beyond her looks. I thought she was hilarious and much more subtle than the part of Cordelia might lead you to believe. I'm stunned she didn't get more work beyond Angel (and a walk on in Veronica Mars). I hope it's not because Joss and the producers blackballed her in the industry because she *dared* to fall pregnant during S4 filming.

      I was mortified when I next saw her playing Jason Statham's girlfriend in The Expendables. Talk about low rent (Statham was at the time).

    4. Cat

      Cat

      We've all got rent to pay, lol. Gotta give it to Statham. +20 years playing the same enforcer character in the same film the industry keeps greenlighting! 

  13. Netflix [!@#$%^&*] up the first new translation and dub of Neon Genesis Evangelion in decades is a lot to process lol

      It sounds like they also decided to straightwash a relationship between two men. Just one of many reasons I'm wary of Netflix's direction...

      With that I think it's more an example of the new subtitles now hewing very close to the original Japanese language nuance and not necessarily paying attn to the character context, but it's still a step back. I grew up watching that storyline and I'm not happy about it, but I believe it is a foolish error of exactitude. Whereas omitting the profanity is just dumb.

  14. Booksmart is my favorite movie of the year so far, and Billie Lourd steals it. As funny as her mother and grandmother.

  15. This is a very candid conversation. I've heard differing things about whether or not Pompeo is part of the drama at Grey's, but I do admire her bluntness. https://variety.com/2019/tv/features/ellen-pompeo-taraji-p-henson-greys-anatomy-empire-1203232936/

      I take it she's not a fan of Patrick Dempsey. 

  16. Folks (not me) are getting security warnings for SON again.

  17. Seems like ODAAT may go to Pop, of all places.

  18. Man, I forgot how dreamy the old Robin of Sherwood series was when I was little. Spawned my mother's fascination with the music of Clannad.

  19. I already enjoyed the new She-Ra, but adding Geena Davis makes it about 100% better.
