It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 PM)

Good luck! (or break a leg if it's like theater luck...)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

Seth Green did other things like supporting roles and more in movies and TV shows.

 

What about Jonathan Brendis what did you think of his performance?

 

I enjoyed the novel since i was 10 when i read it and saw the miniseries first when it debuted on ABC, this new adaptation is quite good but i always liked the adult part of the story better than the kids one as i seen kids vs monsters done better in Monster Squad, The Gate etc. as i feel adults going on an adventure against a monster feels fresh in my view and this looks like it's gonna include the hate crime scene that was too much for the miniseries and what Pennywise's true form looks like than the stupid looking spider from the miniseries.

Saw It chapter 2. No extra scene at the end so no worries about that.

I'd have to say, the first one was better. Yeah, I do love seeing the adult versions (except James MacAvoy) because they resemble the kids (especially Eddie. Hader as Richie was pushing it. Adult Ben looks like Ricky Martin with a goatee, hehe).

But they changed stuff from the novel! And it's not for the better. Like, they changed the character of some of them and omitted the further use of a few more. Because of that, some parts of the film seem like loose ends not tied up properly.

And beating It was, not that good (can't say why) or at least not as good as the first one. In the first one, it was that It was stuck on one shape when focusing on one kid so the others were able to attack them. When It focused on another, the remaining kids attacked again etc. Yes, I know that's not in the novel but it still makes sense. In Chapter 2, urgh.

Still an awesome fun thrill type movie for the CGI jump scares and such. And with more comedy so the relief is better afterwards. But the first one is better. Like, I wanted more of Richie being a Trashmouth and Eddie being a hypochondriac. Bill was meh (I'm tired of him). Everyone in the cinema was just gushing whenever Ben pined after Beverly, haha

Sorry to hear its not as good as the first, I also thought the adult parts of the book were probably stronger.

Still, realy forward to seeing this as was surprised at how good part 1 was despite the changes. I'm annoyed they got McAvoy as he's a bit distracting.

Richie trash talking It is probably my favourite part of the book. Didn't like all the weird kid sexual stuff, KIng books have a lot of that in them though.

It's just my opinion though. I mean, folks could still like it equal or better than the first. The changes and omissions from the novel MIGHT go unnoticed by folks who don't know about it.

Actually, I'd like to know how they do take it. Like, do they feel this was incomplete or if this was out of character etc.

I feel like watching the first one again, to re experience the thrill, hehe.

It was okay. I get why they had to make the changes they did (because the turtle stuff was ridiculous) but how the writers had the the final confrontation happen was kind of a contrivance. It's a decent movie but the first was waay better

Saw it Saturday.  It's a good movie, but yes, not nearly as good as the first part.

 

The adult actors are good and all that, but I guess it doesn't have as much appeal with the adult versions as it does the kid versions.

 

The film loses that Goonies vibe.

One thing that was a little off from me, was it seemed as though Richie (Bill Hader's character) had seen the first movie.  At least one reference (Pennywise's dancing) was something he hadn't seen but made a joke about it.

Just back from it, seemed a bit like a parody of the first at parts I felt. Plus I don't really see why it wouldn't just kill them all as kids, it had plenty of opportunity.
