    While I don't really disagree that it was easier to go in cold to a movie back in the day. I would point out that the hobbling was in the trailer. and the Siskel and Ebert review

    So I finally found the time to listen to the Spider-man rewatchable, and I just have to circle back to something His point, which is correct, is that to someone coming in cold to Spider-Man, the Raimi movie is the better starting point. The backstory he's talking about with Homecoming isn't...

    Remy ceremony Wed. 4/20 at 6:30 on NESN...

    So to give the Sox the benefit of the doubt, what this sounds to me like is that they asked Orsillo, he dithered getting back to them, they went on with their planning and had all the events in the ceremony locked in and then Don rolls in at the last moment with his video message. I mean it's...

    I wouldn't say Charles hates everything, he's just generally more critical than people like Mallory or Van who are both exceptionally Pollyanna'ish when it comes to this stuff.

    And most importantly, it's the first Marvel movie Kevin Feige was a producer on. if there's any pre-MCU movie most responsible for the MCU it's probably X-men. Though I suspect Spider-Man is the better regarded movie now. Certainly had a less, uh, problematic team behind the camera. I don't...

    I figured it was going to be about the announcement of his next book.

    This is obviously strictly imo, but Document to New Adventures in Hi-Fi is peak REM, and they never were quite able to recover from Berry leaving the band. Though, there is some good stuff on their last two albums.

    Dang, that's quite a get for The Ringer. Considering she has a book about the history of Marvel Studios coming out I'm pretty sure she's going to be added to the Ringerverse stable.

    Katie Nolan: somebody should make a thread about her

    friendo, you said this which, whether you intended it or not, has amazing "tell me you don't know who Katie Nolan is without saying you don't know who Katie Nolan is" energy considering the touchy areas Nolan occasionally wades into include topics like "toxic masculinity (my words) in...

    Katie Nolan: somebody should make a thread about her

    Yep, that a perfect culture fit with Barstool. Meadowlark is the most natural landing spot for her with The Ringer in second place, then mayyyyyybe Crooked Media since they're branching out to sports/pop culture, or none of the above because hell if I have any special insight into what she's...

    What do you do when you've already written for every other sports publication in the world? Cut out the middleman! Substack was always the obvious destination after he announced he was leaving the Athletic, but I dunno, sixty bucks a year is roughly what the Athletic and Defector charge, and...

    Higher Learning isn't the great example you think it is because it was emblematic of the problem that the Ringer staffers were complaining about at the time. Namely, Simmons happily let his inner circle host podcasts, but by and large the minority representation were people brought in from...

    I know why they do it, but Binge Mode's insistence to only reference other series they've covered when making examples in Binge Mode Marvel has some huge "please I'm begging, read any another book" energy

    i dunno, I'm just an ordinary salaried bum, but saying you have to work fifty hours a week before you get OT is messed up.
