@  Telly : (31 October 2020 - 12:33 AM)

i might watch spaced invaders. not scary in any way, but it takes place during halloween

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 October 2020 - 02:21 PM)

I think I'll watch The Haunting (1963), Carnival of Souls (1962) and The Innocents (1961) for Halloween.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 01:52 PM)

50/60's Twilight Zone, the 80's, millennium and recent ones also, all are in The Twilight Zone.

@  unluckiness : (28 October 2020 - 05:53 AM)

It's only fitting that SImpsons have halloween specials since it's been a shambling corpse of its former self since its teens.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 04:12 AM)

No I caught one of the latest one with parodies of Stranger Things which admittedly is horror series but Heaven Can Wait and The Shape of Water are Fantasy films. Plus implications of the characters being sociopaths or twisted has become a norm these days.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

Which probably adds to the "reasons they should just stop making more of The Simpsons" pile.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

You make it sound like The Simpsons becoming less repetitive is a bad thing.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 02:48 AM)

Remember when Simpsons Halloween specials parodied horror movies and would have the characters make off out of character remarks like "we chucked donuts at a old man for kicks."? they don't and can't do that any more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 October 2020 - 08:00 PM)

Tired of the same old Halloween stuff? Check out Tubi. The depths of the schlock available is astounding.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

I think the few up here were lost to bad placement, poor weather, and the usual language trap.

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

In other news, MICK FOLEY'S RETURN IS IMMINENT.

Perhaps at the Rock-themed 3-hour Raw in a couple weeks?

You could ask what's the point of TNA at all at this point. With ROH having a nationwide program available on free broadcast TV, I think they could make a claim for the title of second national wrestling promotion. I'd hope that up and coming talents would give ROH a serious look over TNA.

I hope so too. However with Bischoff apparently gaining more and more power in TNA, it's less likely he and Dixie would want to end TNA anytime soon.

Anyway, Daniel Bryan just main evented on Smackdown and had a pretty good showing against Henry.

I wonder what they're gonna do with his title shot. They teased him cashing in, and his doubts about cashing it in on Mania.

If I could attend the shows, I'd enter the CHIKARA give away. I'm hoping Jimmy Stackups enters. He deserves to win given his loyalty to the organisation. I couldn't think of a better ambassador for CHIKARA than a guy who dresses up as one of it's stars and nearly ended up in the ring with them!

On a different and positive note, TNA has announced that they has signed Ohio Valley Wrestling to be their developmental territory. Given the stars that OVW turned out for the WWE, this can only be a good thing for TNA. I'm just hoping TNA doesn't rush anyone through. I'm also guessing Jim Cornette isn't to thrilled with this.

Their developmental territory is WWE, ECW and WCW since most of their signings are castoffs from those organizations.

Thoughts on Raw RIGHTCHERE.

FILLERS! NASH BEING ELOQUENT FOR ONCE! RYDER IN THE MAIN EVENT!

Given some of the main event stars that the WWE is pushing right now went through OVW, this could be a good thing. Will TNA screw this up? Probably, but the potential is there for something great. Quite honestly, this has to be one of the smartest things Dixie Carter has done since buying TNA Wrestling.

IJ I agree that the needed the win, but the way the bookers had them do it just left the match with a flat finish. It could have been ended better, but that's just my opinion. Other than that a very strong Raw.

For Bella Rose Fraizer-Grant Sept 8, 2011 to Nov 26th 2011... Pop-pop will always love you!!!!

Pretending that TNA is actually a "major league" in need of its own "minor league" is not a smart move. TNA is not on equal footing with the WWE. They shouldn't be wasting money trying to be.

The Rock still has the promo skills. Cena just tries to catch up even with Mick Foley kissing his ass.

JOHN CENA: THIS IS YOUR LIFE was tremendous, though.
