re: Smokey and the Bandit - Arksulli on 8/1/21 at 11:08 am
It was a movie that knew exactly what it wanted to be, and then pulled it off. I will get some heat for saying this, but that is one reason I still enjoy watching "The Princess Diaries". Was it an all time great? No. But it knew exactly what it wanted to be and pulled it off. That is refreshing....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Living in Tuscaloosa, AL and Waco, TX - Arksulli on 7/31/21 at 3:46 pm
In all honesty I would lean towards Tuscaloosa. It seems like a doable drive now but if a concern is proximity to family I can attest to you that that 4 hours away is vastly better than 8 hours away, especially as you grow older. 4 hours is doable. 8 hours turns into a major trip once you get so...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: Why is it so difficult for Hollywood to make good movies? - Arksulli on 7/31/21 at 8:55 am
Because, by the very nature of the beast, you are going to get more average movies and more piles of poo than good movies. You might look back at, just a random date, 1937 and say "My God, look at all the classics that came out that year!" They stand out because we overlook the piles of garb...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Honestly? He's got a decent shot. The issue I can see him having is that he's going to go from Texas being the second banana to Oklahoma in football to being middle of the pack in the SEC. At best. Even though Texas was vastly underwhelming their name gave them cache over the likes of Okie S...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

The ratings, from what I have heard, have been in freefall. As in bad enough I'm surprised they gave them one more season. Had I been the head honcho at the BBC I'd have shown Chibnall the door already and brought Whittaker back just long enough to "kill" her and regenerate into the new Doctor. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Sheer depth is my main concern. If we play like we played last year the team will fight hard, but we have a dearth of SEC talent on the squad. I think the Pittboss will get us there eventually but I expect we will lose some games this year just from running out of players. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
