  1. End of the Year 2015

    The aforementioned A$AP Rocky, Kendrick and Sweatshirt albums are all great but Summertime '06 by Vince Staples might be my favorite rap album of the year.  I liked the Jamie XX album a lot too. My best of year would have to be Currents by Tame Impala though. Even if it's a little overlong, I haven't had an album hit me like it did in a long time. 
  2. The Flash

    I don't really care that a lot of people know, I just wish they'd stop using it to wedge conflict into Barry's love life. "I don't know if I should tell Iris/Patty the truth" is undercut when half the city already knows.

    Does Odell know that they can't use baseball bats on the field? I can't see why that would make him feel threatened in the slightest unless there were specific threats, of which there doesn't appear to be any.  Also, how am I an average game from Golden Tate away from the championship? Aaron Rodgers hasn't even been that good!
  4. The X-Men Thread

    This is her last contracted movie so I would imagine that you'll be getting your wish. Unless it makes $2 billion and Fox hands her a blank check to come back, of course. 
  5. Comic Book Films & TV

    Look at what Kingsman: The Secret Service made in a similar slot this year and you'll see why Fox is repeating it. R rated action movies is smart programming against typical Valentine's Day fare and even smarter when you have a following like Deadpool's. 
  6. EWB's Favorite TV Show 2015: The Voting Thread

    1. Mr. Robot 2. BoJack Horseman 3. Game of Thrones 4. The Flash 5. Brooklyn Nine-Nine 6. Silicon Valley 7. Jessica Jones 8. Agents of SHIELD 9. Last Week Tonight w/ John Oliver 10. Narcos 11. Red Oaks 12. Daredevil 13. Community 14. True Detective 15. Man in the High Castle Odd year for me since my viewing habits have gone down a bit and I'm woefully behind on Archer, Justified and Mad Men and didn't get around to watching Better Call Saul yet. The fight for #1 was tough because BoJack was so great but Mr. Robot is the first show in awhile that hooked me immediately and never let me go.
  7. The Marvel Cinematic Universe TV Thread

    Granted I never really watched Dexter so I don't have any reasons to resent him but my point is that a ton of showrunners/writers have missteps on their resumes and it's not always indicative of how well they can do the job. Especially since Marvel has shown to be pretty good at this kind of stuff so I'm willing to give him/them the benefit of the doubt.

    And Melissa Rosenberg (Jessica Jones showrunner) wrote the Twilight movies. Nobody's perfect.  
  9. General Television Thread

    I'm just a little over halfway through it and it's good but the writing isn't the greatest so it doesn't really live up to its potential. I've heard the last two episodes are where it really shines though so maybe they just stretched out the setup way too much.

      Holy shit this looks fantastic!

    Trade for Colin Kaepernick. 
  12. TV/Film you didn't expect to like but did

    The Vampire Diaries. I gave it a chance because it was being well-received at The AV Club but didn't quite expect it to crack my Top 10/15 of the year on more than one occasion.
  13. 2015 NFL Season

    Read the article. It didn't end up being true then because it came out a week later that Dorial Green-Beckham was arrested for an unpaid traffic ticket at the end of September.
  14. 2015 NFL Season

    Tell that to the Texans who opted for Clowney instead of Bortles, Bridgewater or Carr, none of which were really considered "franchise QBs". Obviously that doesn't mean that this year's class will have the same results but I don't think going for the "potential generational talent" is as big of a no-brainer as you're making it out to be.  Maxx's point about the Browns' inability to develop QBs is a good point but it's not like they've done great with the pass rushers they've invested a lot into either (Mingo, Kruger). Basically, we're talking about the Browns here. Damned if you do, damned if you don't. 
  15. General Movie Thread

    I don't think Fantastic Four will really derail anybody's career outside of Trank's. I think most people understand that the thing was a mess.
