    Why hasn't anyone posted the new Road House trailer yet?

    This looks way better than it has any right to be. Gyllenhaal doesn't have the coolness of Swayze but this looks damn fun. McGreggor is a perfect movie villain.

    (Also I liked Rebel Moon)

    Just watched this.

    There's a lot of little bits I like in Roadhouse 2024, but overall this a terrible movie. Not B-movie material. Just bad. Bad script, bad dialogue, so many missed opportunities.

    Gyllenhaals version of Dalton is funny and charming in places, but it's with the hint that there's a violent sociopath hidden behind the smile and dead eyes. Second half of this film nothing he does is laudable from the audiences perspective. He's just bad at his job and apparently a terrible person.

    Also I've not seen post-production dubbing this bad in a modern movie. Both Connor McGregor and the Sheriff dude sound like they're Italian actors from a Bud Spencer movie.

    I just read the first Vorkosigan Saga book, Shards of Honor by Louise McMaster Bujold. Heard a lot of good things about Bujold and wanted to read some Space Opera.

    This was a trap! This is a love story masquerading as a War focused Space Opera! I was looking for space battles and political treachery, I got the treachery but the real trick was making me enthralled with the protagonists relationship.

    I almost dropped the book during the first chapters but damn if the writing didn't keep me hooked. Pretty untraditional story arc too. The book ends just as it's getting complicated.

    I bough the sequel right away but I'm jumping to book 7 "Barrayer", as it picks up the day after the first book ended. I think this book ends in tears.

    I finished up Stross' SEASON OF SKULLS. I hate to say that I can give this one a 2.5 at best. It falls in line with THE ANNIHILATION SCORE as my least favorite Laundry universe books.


    Next up I'm finally starting THE GIRL AND THE STARS by Mark Lawrence. This one is long overdue for me.

    I got 20 pages or so pages into Season of Skulls and bounced off the book. I'll try it again later but like you write, this side story is not the main attraction.

    I want bureaucratic spy necromancy, I want to know what the Laundry is turning into during Case Nightmare PM is an Elder God and God damn it I want Bob back!

    This THE CROW remake looks not bad. Not bad at all.

    It's a sequel series to The Inbetweeners?

    I like too think of it as a spin-off from Neighbors.

    I think you need therapy and probably some kind of medical treatment, Mal. How boring is your daily existence that you find it imperative to jump on this forum every few weeks and pick a fight with people?
