Am I the only one that doesn't think this guy is Wolf Pack or am I missing something? Seems like an old timer from HairLossTalk but said a large amount inconsistent about transplants, meds etc with his posts over there. Very different writing styles too.
Yes, as far as I know.

There are also these people who feel he isn't him, so don't feel badly about it.

Or: how - in my case - legal and moral views can differ.

@JeanLucBB , you might have seen this one, as it was directed by Haneke

Probably well-known to our Norwegian members. The main actor is wearing a wig for this movie, too...

One of the two main characters is portrayed by https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2273799/?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm

and I confess, I've fallen in love with her. I have not had this since seeing Lily Collins in "Abduction", but I can't stop being in awe of her. And I'm kind of relieved to notice it, since she's not a prefect 10 and, most notably, my age @JasonStatham :wave:

Yes, on the condition that I stop whining about only 1-5s liking me on Tinder. Ah, well, let's see how long I can access this site. :P

Glass was bad, and I mean it was really cringingly bad. If it wasn’t for the high profile actors and familiar characters, there were moments I would have thought I was watching a B movie. I kept desperately hoping something would happen to justify the incoherent plot choices, but up to the completely anticlimactic end it was awful

Really disappointing because I love both Unbreakable and Split. I’m going to pretend this one didn’t happen and think of those others as standalone films. Really not sure what M Night was thinking on this one

It was beyond pathetic, it really was. The funny thing about the story, is that is sucked so bad that movie companies rejected it.
He never changed the story. He ended up using his own money to make the movie.

He's really stupid if he can't understand why people didn't like it.

I watched all of the vampire diaries and most of the originals. I'm not ashamed to say TVD was my favorite show, and I was pretty bummed for it to end, especially with how the ending could have been a bit better.

I might check out the Charmed reboot series this week. I've always been a fan of the more "feminine" shows, but they also happen to have more elaborate drama and character interactions. Most people who bash on these shows watch dumb stuff like anime or capeshit so its not like it matters anyways...
How is anime and comic book stuff dumb?

I agree with everything you said about it.
I think I like second season more, even though for me first season was easier to follow. I do have to binge rewatch it one day because I do miss some nuances with the plot first time around. (Especially around the original creators of the AI Hopkins and the original humane bernard(can’t think his name)

It’s funny because on HairLossTalk they used to discuss (think exodus really ) about one day theoretically being able to buy a perfect looking AI and programming them falling in love with person ..and to me that’s like the equivalent of paying a gold digger to be a girlfriend/wife. It’s both fake.
I guess the rational is it’s programed to be real, therefore it is, and then it evolves. But if it evolves and becomes real, it won’t stay falsely in love. It might even feel resentful.
The AI loves you. The gold digger doesnt

I dont wanna go full female hating sluthate mode but come on lmao

This is so simple

Look I don't want to be cynical about women in the United States, but I do think an artificial woman in
the United States could "turn bad" if introduced to other women. She would be stealing money out of the
guys at the moment and stealing his credit cards, let's just be honest about it. :? :wtf: :shock: :o

An artificial intelligent robot that doesn't nag, gives me sex whenever I want it, that does sound kind of good
at first. But I would lock her in the house, and turn her off when I'm going to work.

She's not human, so I don't want to hear any negative remarks about that.

About Game of Thrones.

There probably not that many fans of Game of Thrones in Europe, since it shows at 12:00 AM in the morning?

That said, was the second to the last ending terrible or what?

We all know that Arya will kill Cersei and Jaime on the show finale.

I wish Yara would take the "Iron Throne", because she is a lesbian.

If it’s a simple a concept then you should be able to effectively counter without going ‘ full female sluthate mode.’

I think we watched 2 different shows.

I’m hesitant to say anything because I think in Europe and Australia they are behind a season.

I don’t find her sexy but I saw this before all the hype and it sucked me in like few shows do these days.

Then it became very hyped so I don’t know how it holds up versus the hype since I saw it before and had no expectations.

Blade Runner 2049, Ex Machina, and Alita Battle Angel (to a lesser extent) attempt to explore these issues. You should watch them.

There are several issues though. Among them, "love" is fairly complex, if a robot actually loves you it might be so similar to a person that the distinction becomes irrelevant.

However, if it's just a plush doll saying "I love you !!! I want to blow you right now !!! Would you like a hug ?" on repeat then that has no value.

R, I was listening to Stern the other day and he was complaining a TON about how dark a recent episode of Game of Thrones was. An episode which was a long epic battle... but the lighting was so poor that he couldn't see the action. I dont watch Game of Thrones, so I'm curious, if you saw the episode, is he right? Callers mostly agreed with him. Of course the whole convo was hilarious.

Am still disturbed about what you told me regarding Scott the Engineer. And apparently he hasn't appeared on the show for like a year and is never mentioned anymore. Eh
