  1. Watched this last night with the family.It had its moments I must say. The acting was pretty bad, but it was pretty creepy. My biggest complaint is it felt like a shot for shot rip-off of Grave Encounters. which is a movie we really liked.
  2. I don't think it will do amazing. I mean the original SJ was unique in that it had the blending of animation and real life (ala Who Framed Roger Rabbit). That was something that brought viewers in even if you were not basketball fans. Now we know SJ2 will be a CGI-fest. Heck tampon commercials have CGI in them--so this is not something new that will wow people. The first SJ franchise brought in 6 BILLION in revenue. When SJ came out it was at the height of a player driven NBA. They were celebrating their 50th anniversary. You had Jordan, Barkley, Shaq, a young Kobe. You had the Bulls trying to make history. This was an exciting time for the NBA. Now, the NBA is exciting for another reason--player movement. Don't get we wrong, I am a big NBA fan, so this year is going to be great to watch, but back then everyone could identify Larry Bird, Charles Barkley, Dennis Rodman and Magic. How many current NBA stars could the average, non-NBA diehard person identify picture wise, outside of LBJ, Curry, maybe Harden (because of the beard)? There just isn't that non-fan attraction to this movie. Here is biggest thing. MJ vs LBJ. MJ embraced the Looney Toons role. He was charismatic and easily the most identifiable athlete in history. He was funny and could pull off self-deprecating and do comedy. People liked MJ. Lebron is different. He is an amazing player, but he is not likable. IMO he takes himself way too seriously. Sure he is extremely popular but no where near MJ level. I just think this is a big mistake for LBJ to try this. It smells of him following in the footsteps of MJ and he can't. There is only one MJ.
  3. I have 6: Mantine Whiscash Onix Lapras Vaporeon Jynx I have always been a big IV watcher and would scan anything that I caught that appraised as amazing. I have 640 guys in my Dex and every one of them has a number and letter next to their name. With the addition of Shadow Pokemons in this latest update, I am going to have to expand my storage, but I haven't seen one yet. Last weekend the Entei raid was insane here. There were 2500-3000 people gathered downtown around the museum playing. I caught 2 shiny ones. The Mudkip event is this weekend. We have a very active Pokemon community here.
  4. This movie is going to stink. A Lebron vanity project as he continues to try and follow in MJ's footsteps isn't going to be good at all.
  5. I have lived in Colorado Springs--now Fountain all my life. My wife and I are the rare natives. We love it here, but I have to tell you the last couple years have really tested our patience. First of all--traffic. I am a very fast driver, but in the past 3-4 years something has happened where I am now the slow guy on the road. The growth of the city has brought so many new people in from other places and all of them seem to need to go 20-30 over the speed limit at all times. My wife is a careful, slow driver and not a day goes by she isn't getting honked at. Last year was a record year for people being killed on our roads and we are set to match/pass it this year. Marijuana---yeah, I know everyone is all Wow it is legal--how exciting. The moment it became legal, the number of homeless people in our town exploded 10 fold. You can't go downtown anymore. Every corner has a peddler on it. Crime has gone way up. Illegal grow houses are everywhere.I had one two houses up from me and we are in a nice neighborhood. Weather--last summer our house was destroyed by hail. I mean baseball-softball sized monsters. We had to spend 40 days in a hotel while our house was rebuilt. This year we haven't had them that big, but the last storm broke out all the window effects and sunroof on my Tahoe. My wife's car is like someone took a small hammer to every inch of it. We had zero car payments last year. We now have two. We have been told this is a ten year cycle and we are now in year three. We are not going to replace cars every year. Our house has doubled, almost tripled, in value and we have a nice sum built up in equity. I am turning 50 in two days and plan to retire in 3 years. My wife can retire in seven. We have one daughter in college and one a sophomore in HS. When we retire we are seriously thinking about selling and moving somewhere quiet like Idaho or even Wyoming. We live in a world of Amazon where anything can be delivered via a simple keystroke. I won't miss all this nonsense.
  6. My wife wanted so badly to believe this movie, but she loves the Dybbux box stories and movies, so I will give her a pass.
  7. This. Forget everyone else I am going to get in the shortened line at It's a Small World while everyone else is looking at this fight.
  8. Took the afternoon off and went hunting with my daughter as today was the Armored Mewtwo launch. We were in a group of 125+ people walking and managed to catch two. Very good day!!
  9. Don’t wear one so.... Everyone can tell I am married by that exhausted, beaten down look in my eyes.
  10. Basically just hit appraisal and keep anything strong to amazing. Then use Poke Gene (you have to download) to further realize if you want to keep. Still don't have a Groudon--daughter and I tried a raid today with two lower level players---wow, that sucked. Next week the armored Mewtwo come out in raids. Already working on setting up groups to go after this.
  11. You are reading my mind, I would love to see Iggy back in Denver. He would be that calming force the 2nd unit needs. I feel Denver was counting so heavily on Porter coming in and making an impact, they sat on their hands in FA. Now with his future (still) up in the air, they need to do something to counter the arms race going on in the West.
  12. I am going to let the Lakers know I am available. I can be had for league minimum. I can wave a towel enthusiastically and bring Bron his water bottle. My dribbling and conditioning are suspect, but I bet I can average a good 60% from the FT line. Heck. they need to fill out that roster somehow.
  13. First unicorn was tough—-was getting a little frustrated. Really looking forward to some walking tomorrow and getting some PG and HP time in
