    Well, sounds like cheesy alien invasion movie. Can't help but imagining USS Calister color scheme. John's man bun, good god! Not many guys could pull that off! I have to give this one 5/10. Throw in dinosaurs I'd raise it to 6/10. Mycroft speaking alien gibberish to 7/10. Sherlock in sheet 9/10. Rosie accidentally pulls off that sheet 10/10.

    Introverts, how is your day?

    There are, but sizes like 8, 10, etc, or other type of size for other brand... and I'm not really sure what they stand for. Maybe it's for respective age? But that don't work for adult clothing, do they? :p But nevermind, moral of the story, do not buy clothing items for others, it's too troublesome. I wouldn't attempt it again....eh look! A cute beanie hat! A miniature Belstaff lookalike!

    Were you the conductor to his light or just creating trouble by hiding in the bonfire? Most importantly, what is your hairstyle? Hm? Hmmm?? And did you or did you not punch him in the face? TELL ME! I miss Sherlock, maybe I should really try S4 rewatch one of these days.

    Wonder Woman (spoilers)

    I'm very certain that they would continue in present day, therefore dropping those characters. Reason being, Wonder Woman is considered the most successful and well received installment in DC universe, I predict they would want to use it to bring up the rest of the franchise, therefore creating cameos for other characters like Batman, Superman etc just like what Marvel does (as in Dr.Strange & Hulk appear in Thor, Tony Stark in Spiderman etc etc), keeping those characters fresh and smoothen their path for another Justice League movie. Also, bringing Steve back from the dead would be too cheesy, and cheapen the first movie. I also think he has served his purpose, and for that, Diana still remembers him. Don't think they would be replaced by their descendants, don't see much point to that except maybe a very small role, something for sentimental value but not the main story line. That being said, I actually know nothing about Wonder Woman outside the movie.

    Who said that? I wouldn't say it's best superhero of all time. I think it's good, but it's not my favorite also. Not sure it's even in my top five superhero movie. To me, the best is still The Dark Knight, I have many favorite scenes and even kept the soundtrack back then. Batman Begins and the less of the trilogy, Rises, I think I even put Ironman 1 on top of Logan and also Infinity Wars. I also enjoy Dr.Strange more, this is quite subjective because I can't resist two of my favorite actors play both hero and baddies. :p

    What other TV shows do you watch?

    Good idea Carol, I see if I can write to him later. Magically, this time the forum doesn't give me trouble and let me stay :). (Update: log in three different times today and didn't experience any problems. Maybe my nose is getting more acceptable!) Or does it know that I'm going to snitch?? As TV Show, I'm following the new season of Westworld, and liking it so far, eventhough I feel indifferent with the characters, which is less tiring way to enjoy a show actually (by not obsessing with the character like certain curly one). Haven't caught the latest episode, the latest one that I watched 'Kiksuya' was a very good episode. As for Homeland, I was impressed with the first two seasons, but into season 5, I kind of lost my interest and couldn't even remember where I left it. I think they made greatest mistake that sort of make the show lost its mojo.

    I suppose it is more realistic and deals with real struggles that almost everyone can relate to. And I think it's gives something different than usual formidable superheroes and more into less glorious side of it.

    Introverts, how is your day?

    What do you mean as spacey? I don't drink coffee regularly but I drink two cups sometimes, and it'd make me want to do something.. something! Although the affect is not consistent, sometimes I just want to sit and watch TV. @FL Do you have to? I had an ex who was crazy about football and he would bring a piece of paper and strategized on how he would arrange his dream team. I'm not into football, but didn't really mind it and 'help' him strategize because after hearing him for a while, I came to know the strength and weaknesses of the players. But if it's too overwhelming, I'd just do my own thing and ignored him. Last month, as annually, I tasked myself to buy stuff for my acquaintances. They helped me a great deal before, professionally and I still rely on these relationship and maintain it with gifts to them yearly, which they appreciate since they are staying in place with very limited choice of merchandize. They like fishing, so I hang to that plus nitty gritty like scarf to their wives. BUT I don't remember how many children they have and how old they are, until last year one of them cheerfully called me to let me know the news that he finally had a baby boy. Which I wrote in his contact detail '2 months old as per november 2016', a precious snippet of information as I'm really bad at remembering children and their details. This year, thankfully, I got most of the gifts online, but when I was shopping for other thing I saw a cute little kid jacket that I'm pretty sure would be useful. However, I have no idea how big a 1.5 years old. And since I had it in my mind that jacket is a good gift, now I HAD to find a jacket. The bigger one, safer bet, were not as cute looking as the one that I noticed in the first place. There was no information about the size (it's not a clothing shop, but a big chain supermart), I tried to recall all the kids that I know but really had no idea if that would fit. Went around to check other clothing items to see if I could compare, but there was no clear info and I'm not familiar with the sizes eventhough I checked it online as well. So I walked around and went back to the jacket multiple times, spotting some unsuspecting shoppers with children but too reluctant to ask. Spotting some shop assistant but thought some looked too young to have children and stood there hopelessly and wondering if I really needed to talk to strangers and how far the comversation would drag. Apparently I must looked very lost, a shopper (a mother) and somehow an (finally) older looking store assistant approached me at the same time and asked me if I need help. :p So I asked them if 1.5 yrs fits in it and both of them agreed that it should. I said thanks and went my merry way. It shouldn't have been a struggle!

    I tried to multiquote Pseud's above post but ended up clicking on Sheerluck's profile 4 times (even when I tried to adjust my banana finger to click higher). So don't be alarmed Sheerluck, I am not stalking you, I'm harmless and very well behaved. Believe I had not said my welcome, Welcome! Anyway, please don't tell me that I'd find Trump when I go trekking. Seriously! Also I tried to quote your previous post, Pseud. Your mom is so nice for putting up both you and your dad! I'm light sleeper myself and know how monstrous I feel when there is constant disturbance to my sleep. Great to hear it works out FL. Wow you guys have lots of Sherlock related dreams.

    YES! I supposed I'd like Brussel sprout, because I like vegetable and brocoli is my favorite, but haven't tried any as well. I dreamt about Sherlock being real the other night, with those curls and coat, and he seemed to be in my life that I met him often. Then everything escalated and there was a gasp.. a villain trying to impersonate him but with bad wig and ugly coat . Oh somehow I got to help him but then got into trouble and he came to rescue me (bahahaha) wearing a disguise. His disguise? Straight hair! but I recognize him because he still has that gorgeous face. That's about it before my alarm woke me up and I sat there thinking,"What just happen?!! I need to tell everyone in the forum!"

    I hope everything sorted out FL. I think communication is always the key, and it's way more important to sort unhappiness with people you care about. Sometimes it's just an easily corrected misunderstanding, as long as both parties are willing to work on it. I have learned that expressing unhappiness actually very relieving to do instead of keeping and trying to endure it. There is an art to it though about how you express it so it's not easily misunderstood. I haven't got the hang of it as well in all the years of my existence. Sometime I hit right on the target, sometimes I shoot myself in the foot and sometimes I ruin relationship.

    what what?? I tried :sm it gave me short cut to emoji that seems to contain sm in their code, but then they disappeared as fast as they appear. Now :sm :sm :sm they refuse to repeat what they showed me. Glad to know that you feel like watching it! I do understand why it appeals to lots of audience though, and it has decent quality in term of presentation, and it could be enjoyable if you treat it just like another popcorn movie. Having said all those crap above, I'd still catch the third movie, because I'm curious how they could save it and probably make it as good as the original given the premise (it's totally savable) or mess it up badly that it'll become as just another freak, monster movie. All I wish (not all, I lie) is that they dedicate more time to filter the rubbish, actually do sensible research about animal behavior (which should be a big factor in the third installment) and stop repeating the scenes of the classic for the sake of trying to imitate it. I actually like where they leave it but as above, they could screw it far more easily than save it. Anwyay @Arcadia, you'll be pleased to know that you are being mentioned in the movie. It comes up very obviously at least twice! @Artemis, I also find it often that I hate things that people love. Sometimes it's the overwhelming reaction and praise that elevate my expectation way too much that make it fails miserably. Avatar is one of the example. I had heard too much good thing that when I watch it, errrrr, yes? Okay it looks colorful, but...?? As for the CGI that is wildly praised, I'd say CGI in FInding Dory short stories is way better (although it's done later). I mean, it is easier to create those whimsical colors in CGI than realistic ones, so I was not impressed with that as well. However, for the Black Panther, I caught it without reading and hearing anything about it except seeing the trailer once, and I don't find the the trailer interesting as well. It just happened that we wanted to watch a movie to kill some time and thought at the very least, Marvel should be worth the time. But noooooo..... *dodge tomato*
