    Transformers was nice... Megatron gives out a hitler-ish vibe. Man even in cybertron, you cant get away from zombies! :ROFLMAO:

    Speaking of that ending, it was kind of underwhelming. Season 1 Finale was a blast and made us wait what would happen next in Season 2. This season’s finale is a twist on the singularity effect of time travel (that you can’t travel backwards only forwards) and the effect it causes on the timeline as we know it. It’ll be 2021 when we find out about it in Season 3. I’m thinking by then Number Five would’ve been a year older and his voice deeper so how they are going to retain his character’s age will be a challenge. This isn’t like Stranger Things where the kids grow up older.

    Season 1 had a lot of seemingly filler episodes, but had a great ending.

    Season 2 had a lot of great episodes, but had a rushed ending.

    Overall, I would have to rate S2 higher, as each character had their story arcs told well, and episodes were never boring (unlike some eps in S1).

    SPOILER ALERT. If you haven't seen it READ NO FURTHER.




    I think that finale insinuates that they went to a different dimension, a different timeline.

    They should've revealed Ben in the full episode of S3 na lang, because it negated the emotional goodbye they just had.

    We watched Weathering With You last night. Such a perfect movie to watch while the weather is rainy. It got us craving for a good bowl of ramen after watching it.

    Our thoughts on the movie is that it's not Kimi No Na Wa (Your Name.) Part 2, and it shouldn't even be so don't expect it to be the sequel that took 4 years in the making. But it's hard not to compare Weathering With You with Your Name because of the similar formula of a love story with a mix of supernatural stuff, and also for the characters of Your Name appearing in cameo roles in Weathering With You suggests that they have the same cinematic universe. Visuals are top notch once again, and the OST is fitting for the rainy weather setting.

    The theory is that when Vanya unleashed her powers in 1963 and changed the life of Harlan and other people then the course of history followed them back to 2019. It was as if they existed in another timeline or reality. The Sparrow Academy already had its seed planted in 1963 with Harlan and Lila possibly being a part of it.

    Rewatched An Officer and a Gentleman, which is from 1982 but it holds up pretty well. I had forgotten this movie starts with a Philippine Airlines flight, a jeepney, and subic bay.
    One thing I like to do in old films is watch the end credits to see if there were any stars in the cast who weren’t stars yet. For this movie, it was David Caruso (who portrayed one of the minor character officer candidates). And I didn’t even realize it was him till I saw his name in the end credits

    Transformers War for Cybertron 8/10 Well paced. I take offense in making Aleta a significant character, even more significant than Ironhide. She’s at best Prime’s girlfriend in previous iterations. I did miss Peter Cullen’s voice.

    I think it's the MTRCB's desperate attempt to stay relevant in the 21st century. Especially during these pandemic days when cinema movies are zilch and nada, they are WFH and twiddling their thumbs. Next up, they will want to regulate all of the internet, Youtube, Youporn, Pornhub, etc.

    I know that guy too, the MTRCB's lawyer Jonathan Presquito. Had a chance to work with him many years ago on a real estate deal, and he had seemed bright to me, at the time.

    Does it get better? Am on episode 6 and the characters are starting to resemble caricatures more than actual persons. Their lines are cheezy, and the situations are getting ridiculous. Seems like the producers were betting too much on the nostalgia factor.

    I stopped watching after Season 1 before it was on Netflix. Now I'm iffy about starting season two.

    Like others, it was mostly nostalgia that got me. Actually I wasn't a big fan of the Karate Kid series, even in the 80s when I was very gullible. What I realized watching this series now is that William Zabka (Johnny Lawrence) can't act for shit. No wonder his roles dried up right after KK1.

    I read somewhere they're teasing the return of Elizabeth Shue in Season 3. Now that may make it worth watching again.

    Nailed it. He sure as hell isn't lead actor material. One reason I might keep watching is to see more of Courtney Henggeler.
