You can't levy a "Gosling has too much personality" argument against him. His best roles feature a distinct and remarkable lack of personality in his characters, from Place Beyond the Pines to Drive.

2049 is a technically genius and stunning movie that doesn't at all feel its actual length, but the story is pretty under cooked. It's right up there with films like Revenant or Children of Men that make for amazing cinematic experiences but don't leave much room for thought afterwards. In that way, 2049 is a bit of a disappointment compared to its predecessor, but it's still fantastic.

Really not surprised at all with the domestic box office reception. Nothing about it or its marketing was targeted to large demographics.

And if you haven't seen it yet, absolutely get an imax or comparable ticket; the audio and visuals were jaw-dropping at the XD theater I attended.

There are electric currents flowing in space and that is what powers the sun, not an internal nuclear furnace.

Good god, do people believe shit like this? Take an elementary physics course. Please.

To be fair, I eat Chipotle more than once per week... but what kind of idiot gets tacos? Everyone knows you get the most food by ordering a bowl and getting a tortilla on the side... so halfway through eating the bowl you can MAKE a complete burrito. It's two meals in one!

Also, kind of a bummer that chorizo didn't take off. I mean I love it, but it really needs cut with another meat and not taken on its own: hence, chori pollo.

In an interview with The Washington Post in 2016, Horner said he thought Trump won the White House because of him.

Massive regret at having helped birth this fucking sideshow of an administration?

Can an engineer explain to me why it's taking humans so fucking long to create bigger hard drives?

Because flash memory is inside everything and there's not enough of it to go around. SSD demand is finally starting to pick up beyond enthusiasts into the enterprise markets. Increasing flash memory production isn't something that happens overnight, and manufacturing plants cost billions of dollars.

1) Can I play this without having played Avernum 1 & 2? How much story am I missing? Will I be totally lost?

Having only played Avernum, the story was pretty forgettable fantasy trash. The game itself was pretty good, but man are those graphics a hurdle.

Actually, while I totally respect her foster rescue parent, I'm not a fan of the whole "treat reward system".

Whether you are a fan or not really doesn't matter, because it works, and is the universally accepted means to train dogs. You eventually stop giving them treats for simple commands, but they'll keep performing anyways. That's what training is.

Yeah, we'll get a purpose built vehicle for this within 10 years. Probably closer to scooter sized than car sized. Also, fully electric, I imagine.

It doesn't matter what they build. It's not cost-effective or convenient. Most people will gladly pay the couple of bucks to have someone bring it to the door then make the effort of going out to get it themselves. If you're already throwing shoes and clothes on to do so than you may as well just pick it up or make pizza at home.

You've clearly never delivered pizza before or worked in service industry. Most people are fickle and cheap and tip next to nothing.

Most people don't care to support an industry charging a "delivery fee" and then expecting people to tip the delivery driver. I haven't had pizza delivered since that asinine fee showed up.

Any shared wisdom on controlling a dog while walking?

Any and all dog training is about rewarding good behavior. Getting a dog to walk well starts inside the house. Get your dog to look at and listen to you regularly on command. Get your dog to sit on command. Get your dog to stay on command. Get your dog to come on command. Get your dog to "leave it" on command. Once ALL THAT is done, you can start using your toolbox to have nice walks together. Same rules apply outside; reward your dog for keeping pace and not pulling, get your dog's attention on you the moment before he gets distracted by something, and just periodically practice other commands as you go.

The game was not good. Not even in passing. Not even if it was even on Steam for a Steam sale.

I played maybe thirty minutes. This game really is that bad.

He's a product of America and capitalism in general, or did you not notice who somehow got elected PRESIDENT recently? You can't train generations of children that greed is good and selfishness is a virtue and then reprimand them for following through.
