    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I know Affleck is WB's golden child right now but a lot of his recent movies have been stinkers. I might be in the minority but while I don't dislike him as much as I did in the early 2000s, I don't see him as anything other than serviceable actor-man.

    I thought he was best in those awkward Kevin Smith films; otherwise, he seems generally too wooden, even for Batman.

    I've kept going and enjoyed it for a while, but Episode 8 was really awful.
    The introduction of Diamondback was awful, from the gimmick bullet that made no sense, to the cache movie and bible quoting to the "I am your brother line". Just cartoonish, in the worst way. And he was otherwise not interesting Rosario Dawson is great, though.

    His best performance was in Dazed & Confused, but I'd agree that Kevin Smith got the most consistently decent work out of him.

    We finally circled around to watch the last few episodes of Jessica Jones. I have to agree with whoever it was who said that the quality really dropped off towards the end. I was mostly just sitting around wondering why it was taking so long for the story to play out.

    Looks fantastic. Not getting much of an Old Man Logan vibe to it, but it looks like we may be in for something unique here.

    In keeping with my habit of watching shows weeks/months after everyone else does, my wife and I watched the first episode of Westworld last night. It was interesting and thought-provoking in ways I didn't expect. It made me reconsider all those hours I spent playing Skyrim a few years back.

    I'm really enjoying WW much more than I thought I would. Production value is top-notch as expected from a marquee HBO show and the theories people are coming up with are fascinating af

    I was surprised at how much I wound up thinking of it after the fact. I almost want to go back and re-watch it to see what I missed the first time.

    Speaking of thinking shows,, Black Mirror is back. I watched the first 2 episodes and found them extremely chilling (if not a bit schlocky). Def not a show for me to binge watch at 4 AM

    I was waaaay surprised to see they framed the question of robot consciousness around Julian Jaynes's The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind. Earlier, a friend had joked that the book seemed to fit Willem Defoe's Green Goblin character, but it makes perfect sense when considering an android breaking fee of the voices/commands heard from its masters....

    If no one's read the book, it's really fascinating. Huge explanatory power, and a very well-written and entertaining history of early civilization even if you don't buy 100% into its premise.

    If the movie is half as good as this trailer, I'm gonna like this a lot. If it's like the first two Wolverine movies, I'm gonna be really disappointed.

    That Logan trailer was awesome. Kinda looks like The Last of Us.
