My mom told me about that. Horrible! What is wrong with these people? Trump gets a lot of the blame, that's for sure. But ultimately it's on the idiots that listen to him.
I "kind of" wish I was there so I could get in trouble for assaulting the original perpetrator. lol
I wish any of us that would have stepped in against this asshole would have been there. It's like that guy in NY that assaulted the Asian lady. The security and people inside the building did nothing, other than close the doors to the building. Or the guy on a bike that was assaulted while people just walked by like they didn't even see it. We can't just all sit back and let this happen.
Is that what they teach you at superhero school?
You didn't go to the same one, Cap?
All they taught me was how to sell war bonds. I had to figure out the rest myself.

Yeah, in your defense, it was after HS and you were just a scrawny little runt from Brooklyn before the change. But, you were always willing to stick up for others even against the odds.

So at risk of spamming this thread...

[really late to the party]

Before the pandemic, I had seen a total of 2 marvel movies. Traditionally I am just not into giant budget action movies with tons of CGI. But we watched them all as a family because my son kept pushing and, you know, there was a global pandemic going on.

I was really impressed with what Feige et. al. have done.

You’ve also gotta appreciate DC for coming along and showing how hard it is to do this right. If you really want to enhance your appreciation for the MCU movies, watch the DC crap.

I really enjoyed Zach Synder's 4 hour Justice League. I'm guessing you haven't watched it.
Wormwood/Superbone 2019/2020 season bet: Suns win < 30 games, Wormwood wins, else 'Bone wins. 1 month avatar shame starting July 1st of winner's choosing. ACCOMPLISHED! 34 wins in a shortened season! Like it mattered. We rarely see Wormwood anyway!

I haven’t. But I’ve seen the theatrical cut and was underwhelmed.

The extended cut of BvS was better than the theatrical cut, FWIW. Still can’t hold a candle to Marvel.

Not worth it to me to watch bad movies so I can appreciate good ones. That is like saying I have to eat little ceasars to appreciate.... anything else. No thanks.

To be honest, we did skip 6 of the 23 (yes, there really are 23!). Skipped Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 3, both of the first Thor movies, and 2 Ant-man movies. Also haven't watched Far From Home just yet, but will soon.

I'll have to check that out (BvS extended).

I'm a bit of a fan of the MCU, and I'd say your choices to skip are generally pretty reasonable. IM3 has its moments but the ending is a mess; I think I like it better than IM2, though. Thor 1 to a lesser and Thor 2 to a greater extent are pretty joyless, and only really worth watching if you like Tom Hiddleston's performance as Loki. Incredible Hulk is right on the edge of not even being canon in the MCU anymore. I liked the Ant Man movies as heist-with-superhero-trappings joints, but their appeal is going to be limited by how much you like Paul Rudd. I think he's reasonably good in them, and I like their relatively smaller stakes after a lot of end-of-the-world stuff in the bigger movies. Maybe just watch Ant Man 1, and if you like its silliness, you'll probably like 2 as well.

Of those, the one I didn't enjoy the most was Iron Man 3. The Ant-man ones were funny and more comical.

Nail salons are predominately Asian owned and were not shot up. You just proved the point... He did not shoot up Massage envy he also did not shoot up an Asian market. He specifically shot up Asian massage parlors.
For the record, the massage ladies were like oooold and the reporting on it was slanted to the point of embarrassment:

It wasn't related to sketchy sex stuff as much as it was a race related hate crime. And hate crimes tend to be directed against a specific demographic by definition, BAMF.
Are you arguing against me dude. I'm Taiwanese and think its a hate crime. What is not clear here.
Ok -- thanks for clarifying. Guess I misunderstood your posts.

Agree. It's a great discussion but I totally forgot what this conversation was about until I scrolled back to the top.
What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton
