I once had a turkey try to FLY across the road right in front of me... :rolleyes:

The stupid bird came right in my driver's side window and hit me in the face.
I still have no idea how I managed to not run off the road - I had to slam it's head against the dashboard a few times before I could finally manage to wrestle it back out the window...

You ran afoul of a foul fowl?


Netflix has a new movie called The Old Guard. They're a group of immortal warriors lead by Charlize Theron. It's not bad. It's based on a graphic novel. I'd rather it be based on The Highlander. I enjoyed the movies and series. I'd like to see a return of that world.

For the first time in its 34 years, DragonCon is cancelled. They're going to do a free online "best of" with some new original stuff.
All the major cons here Sweden has also been cancelled. Gothcon had earlier a longer consecutive streak than Gencon If I understood it correctly.

Are smaller local governments fighting larger governments over COVID-19 in other countries like they are here? We have mayors fighting governors, governors fighting the president. I know party vs party is not unique to The US. At least our politicians don't get in slap fights or throw furniture like I've heard happening in other countries in the past.

My state is going to pass 3000 total deaths probably today. Things looked like they were improving until about 2 weeks ago. Now it's all on the rise again. In some places hospitals are bursting.

Dude, I just watched that like yesterday. They went into the first area and they all had swords/axes. I was wondering if this was some lowkey Higherlander movie. It turned out not to be, which I guess was a little disappointing. Not a bad movie though.

I thought I read that there was going to be a reboot of the Highlander franchise, either in movie or tv form, but it's probably one of those things where it was talked about and then never happened. Like I think there was supposed to be a Xena reboot that apparently died. Thought I read something of a Buffy the Vampire series reboot, but haven't seen anything about that. Lots of supposed reboots, but seems like most go nowhere. Though a surprising number randomly appear. Just read the other day that the Wonder Years is going to be rebooted. I'm sorry, but without Winnie, I don't know how this show could ever be successful.

Yeah but this time with a black family. You'll get a black Winnie Cooper. 😝

I've heard the same on all of those except Xena.

When I saw the blades I thought the same thing. It did have a little Highlander feel with the flashbacks, but it needed the romance flare Highlander had.

Yeah, but I'm older now, so even if it has its own version of Winnie, it just won't be the same. Although to be fair, I'm unlikely to watch it regardless of how the show turns out. But, I also know I'm not the target audience of the show, cause if I was, they'd all be elves going to military school and occasionally having battles against orcs. Either fantasy or scifi (Tao and Orks?).

I had the feeling that Andy had been around long enough that the romance in her had died. Like, she has loved and lost and no longer wants to love again, which kinda brings us to why the events happened as they happened.

I like your version of The Wonder Years. Danica Mckellar could so play an elf.

So, do you think there are plans for an Old Guard sequel? Did they leave it open enough?

It's an unfortunate aspect of so many movies nowadays that they pretty much always build an out into their movies. So many movies end and then have that cut scene immediately after that leaves the possibility of a sequel. This used to be done well, particularly in horror movies, but I feel like now it's done way too often.

So yeah, I think by adding in that last scene, they are showing us that there is a possibility of a sequel. I don't know how Netflix determines which shows should actually have sequels though, so no idea if it'll come to pass. But I'm guessing IF there is a second movie, it'll be some sort of revenge movie. Not at the other immortals though, I don't feel that the asian woman would hate Andy (although she totally could - why didn't you come and find me, even though seriously, trying to find someone at the bottom of the entire ocean is basically an impossible task) but hate the humans who did that to her. And the dude she's talking to didn't seem angry either. More accepted his punishment, figuring he'll talk to them again in a bit. But he wanted to help people and it was the humans who took it too far. So I could see them working together to kill "some group" of humans and Andy and her friends trying to stop them.

Or something entirely different than that. I feel they left it open enough that the sequel could probably go anywhere.
