  1. Which State/Province do you live in/come from? Ontario, Canada What makes your state special/different to others? Ontario is one of the thirteen provinces/territories of Canada, and is the province with the largest population (13.5 million), and is known for a variety of diverse landscapes that encompass the province's one million square kilometres (415,000 square miles). Ontario is home to the city of Toronto as well as the national capital of Ottawa, but also vast forest ranges and over 250,000 lakes. Ontario is connected to four of the Great Lakes, and is home to Niagara Falls. Some notable Ontarians are Tim Horton (famous Hockey Player turned Restaurateur), Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, Drake, Jim Carrey, Dan Akryoyd, Mike Meyers, John Candy, Leonard Cohen. Fun Fact: Many Canadians are known for saying "Eh" or "Sorry", to the point that Ontario introduced the Apology Act, which in essence means that use of the word "Sorry" is not an admission of guilt. Sorry. What local foods is your state known for? Ontario is Canada's largest producer of fruits and vegetables Beaver Tails. No, not genuine Beaver Tails, but rather a pastry made to resemble one. Chains now exist in numerous countries, but it started in Ontario. Maple Syrup is heavily produced in Ontario, as are Maple Candies. Poutine is general Canadian food not specific to Ontario, but certainly popular here. Ketchup Chips and All Dressed flavoured Chips are also big in Canada. (All Dressed chips combine Barbecue, Ketchup, Salt & Vinegar and Source Cream and Onion.) What special buildings do you have? The CN Tower (Former "world's tallest free-standing structure") Canadian Parliament Building (Roof is made of copper, and has such turned green)
  2. Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life is Calling (Directorial Debut) Blue Collar See No Evil, Hear No Evil That being said, I would be just as excited to hear discussion about Superman III.
  3. Good episode guys, and apologies for the lengthy feedback. Regarding my question about your favourite of the film scores from last month’s roster, Ian recapped the scene from the Holiday, where Jack Black’s character (a film composer himself) performs a rendition of the “Driving Miss Daisy” theme, and recounts its importance in the history of film scores. Well, I wouldn’t be able to sleep if I didn’t point out the irony of this scene, as Composer Hans Zimmer wrote the music to Driving Miss Daisy, (something Black’s character points out), and Zimmer actually scored The Holiday. Zimmer is a longtime collaborator of Nancy Meyers, so I’m sure this was in the script and is a nice little nod to their friendship.
  4. This was fun, thanks for this guys. I used to watch this as a kid, and (even then) I have always found that this show felt incredibly rushed. Upon rewatching it all these later, I’m realizing that this is probably because these episodes have pretty much wall-to-wall music. For a 20 minute episode there is probably 17-18 minutes of music, which is pretty outrageous. Especially when you compare this to other animated Superhero programs of the 90s, specifically STAS and BTAS. Speaking of BTAS, I always felt a large influence from that show on this Spider-Man series. Especially this first episode, the plot of which very closely mirrors “On Leather Wings”, the first episode of BTAS, featuring the scientist turned villain Man-Bat.
  5. I'd second this recommendation, and think it would be a nice change of pace for you guys. It is very recent, but I don't know of any TABHAL rules against that. Also, not that it is any incentive, but I too would provide feedback if you covered it. And I most certainly do not mean Email-Bot; that bit is tired.
  6. 'No Time To Die' release delayed from April to November Oof.
  7. Hop Fuzz The Doctor and the Devils The Beautician and the Beast
  8. Dalton as well - because he is simply the best.
  9. Favourite Featured Actor: Andy Serkis Favourite Review: North (Elijah Wood) Worst Movie Covered: Well, Wilsons, I had to think a long time to pick my worst picture of 'The Year of the Rings'.. about a tenth of a second. And, believe it or not, its the same one you chose.. its North. Favourite Jingle: Bob The Train "We Go Song" Most Anticipated Subject for Next Year: Michael Keaton or Daniel Day Lewis
  10. The Skeleton Twins, Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters. If you find the latter two too similar, you could throw in Welcome to Me.
  11. That definitely seems to be the case and is a great (and somewhat frightening) real world connection. And seeing as the episode plays out as it does, it can be assumed that the Watchmen universe is a universe without Donald Trump, as he now could not have been born in 1946.
  12. The Veidt characterization is very suspect, but I was willing to get on-board with it so long as we would eventually figure out what is going on and where exactly he is in time and geography. I do feel it has gone on too long, however. Now that we know he is Speaking of Lady Trieu, I like her inclusion to help represent Vietnam as part of the United States, but I will admit I find her plot and scenes to be fairly boring. Most theories about the show all circle back to her, however, so I am curious to see just how involved with everything she was. Regarding the representation of the horrific racial history of America, I sadly have to admit I was completely unaware about the Tulsa massacre in 1921. I don't know if that is because I am Canadian and we aren't taught about it, or if it is for other reasons, but regardless; I am thankful to the show for bringing it to my attention. This is explained in a document found on Peteypedia. In short, New Frontiersman was in fact printing excerpts of the journal: “ 'Rorschach’s Journal' sold thousands of copies of New Frontiersman, but for most people, it wasn’t apocalyptic revelation. At best, it was outrageous entertainment from an outrageous outlet." The editor could never verify the authenticity, so it never made it further than the die-hard believers. The entire document is worth a read however, there is more history filled in regarding this and multiple journals. It also confirms numerous people (mostly Government) are aware of the truth regarding 11/2. Some other theories to consider going forward:
  13. Okay, I'm glad someone else is watching the show now, because I am dying to talk about it! Some minor details you and Dan have pointed out in TMTM have come back in major ways.
  14. I did a double take, because I thought that was John Glover reprising his role as Lionel Luthor. But he looks great, along with everyone else in the photos
