Re: Baseball in Decline?

A few things. First, do you know what the new helmet rule is? Helmet-to-helmet impacts are already not permitted. The new rule they’re implementing is not that. This is when players make impact, they’re not allowed to initiate contact with their helmet, which is what every running back does when ru...

Re: Baseball in Decline?

I mean, it's nice that you got to hear someone on the radio who didn't have that problem, but a lot of people who have won't be talking anyway because they've killed themselves.

Re: Baseball in Decline?

That rule isn’t going to do much to eliminate concussions or just the general impacts during the game. Would you like football to be banned? You should probably ban hockey and soccer as well, along with boxing and MMA. My point is, there’s lots of things that aren’t good for us but we do it anyways...

Why did video games have to stop being so RADICAL?

Re: Baseball in Decline?

Also, while I don't think any sport will disappear any time soon, the NFL's stupid new helmet rule (can't use the helmet as a weapon) will cause the sport to fall further than the MLB. It seems like the NBA is the only major sport in America where the people in charge aren't complete dinosaurs with...

Re: The Room (Best movie ever)

It's pretty great. One of those movies that can't wear out its welcome, no matter how (in)famous it gets. If you like The Room , I strongly recommend checking out A Talking Cat!? and Fateful Findings (or any other Neil Breen movie). I wish I had the time to seek out more weird, no-budget insanity li...

Re: Can video games be adapted into good movies

A major part of the problem is that video game adaptations tend to be in genres that are often hacky anyway. Non-Asian martial arts movies. Horror movies. Monster movies. Add to that the further hackiness endemic to licensed properties, and it's no wonder that you end up with garbage like Alone in t...

Re: New Tomb Raider Movie!

Update: The recently released RAMPAGE 2018 movie is not great, but strangely is said to be a better movie then Tomb Raider 2018!: https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/rampage_2018/ Not necessarily. Setting aside that there will be many more reviews after it's released tomorrow, while Rampage has a high...

Re: Does this suck?

This is interesting but not consistently successful, and there are serious issues with it overall. I hope that my enthusiasm for some of your past writing shows that I'm coming purely from a place of good faith. The biggest and most generalized problem is how the world of the story is approached. I ...
