In Topic: The Nightmare Scenario

18 December 2014 - 11:11 AM

So if the Panthers December performance turns out to be not good enough to get us to the playoffs but good enough that it saves the jobs of most - or even all - of the coaching staff, how do you expect you'll react?

 

I don't really know how I'd react, but isn't it frustrating that it feels like we ask this exact same question almost every year? Ugh. I can think of maybe two seasons in the last ten years when we weren't asking this question in one way or another.

 


In Topic: Serial Podcast

12 December 2014 - 02:41 PM

My wife and I listened to the first five episodes in one day. We're hooked. We'll probably get caught up this weekend. Great story and I think the podcast format for this kind of storytelling is incredible. I was so skeptical. I love a good murder mystery and was concerned how well I would connect to the story without having images of the people, the place, etc that is provided through film documentary format. But it's great - let's your imagination run wild within the context of non-fiction, and I love that. Highly recommended.

I like how the Vikings viewing area that's blacked out is a big middle finger.

In Topic: And the new James Bond movie will be called.......

I grew up with Brosnan and the 007 movies he starred in were mostly bad. I don't believe it had anything to do with Brosnan, those films just had horrible scripts and dialogue.

 

My impression of Bond, not based on books or anything but the films I've seen, is that he is a sophisticated British gentleman. Craig simply does not have that super man appearance. His face and hair just don't scream superior genetics like Brosnan's did.

 

Craig looks more like an ugly Bond villain than Bond.

 

At the time I hoped they would pick Clive Owen instead of Craig.

 

I hear you. The great thing about Bond is that each actor has brought something different to the persona. Brosnan certainly embodied the polished gentleman persona, you're right about that. Daniel Craig is clearly the flawed and rugged Bond. Brosnan was self-assured with a smile - almost arrogant. Craig is self-assured with a grimace - welcoming of the danger but doesn't seem to enjoy it.

Get rid of Daniel Craig. He'll be bald soon. Pierce Brosnan was a way better bond. Craig has no presence and should never have been a leading man.

 

I am not a huge Daniel Craig fan, but you must be the first person to ever express this opinion. Pierce Brosnan is widely considered to be one of if not the worst Bond actors of all time along with Lazenby. Many regard Daniel Craig as one of the best, second only to Connery. Not saying this is my opinion, just stating what I have perceived to be the consensus. Personally, I have definitely preferred Craig over Brosnan.
