    Ripoff is a strong word. Game of Thrones is Dune. Star Wars is Dune. The Matrix is Dune. The New Testament exists because somebody time-traveled back with a copy of Dune. Every incredibly tedious book by Neal Stephenson is Dune. Not a lot of people know this but a whole lot of Dune is taken directly from the books of Lesley Blanch. Asimov himself admittedly ripped off Edward Gibbon for Foundation. Everything is usually based on something or influenced by something else. Literature, specifically scifi and fantasy, has always been about allegories, world building, and character development. The classics in those two genres that are just repeats from the old serial mags from the 50s and 60s are endless.

    You can't fit Dune into any number of reasonable hours proportional to what studios will actually allow. The reason LOTR got that sort of investment by Bezos is because it's an established brand. Nobody knows what the hell Dune even is. We are lucky we're even getting this.

    Sometimes I forget how much of a niche community the scifi community actually is. Like, if you surveyed 100 people on the street how many of them could even say they've read anything by Asimov? It's hard for me to fathom Dune being classified as a sleeper but I guess it is due to the popularity of the genre beyond comic book movies. To me it's always been right up with The Three Musketeers or Don Quixote. Even more impactful than LOTR was to fantasy. Dune has always been and will always be king.

    Movies We've Seen Thread

    My favorite part of Abducted in Plain Sight is at the end when the guy tries to take the "you're doing this only for fame and money" angle, and normally when that happens the jejune sides of America harumph said accusation into truth; but finally in this instance even the courts were like "go **** yourself buddy."
  5. This thread is the Jetnation version of sitting through Revolutionary Road.

    Kap and NFL Settle

    First it's because he's being unpatriotic. Then there is no collusion case, he's just not good enough. Now the NFL settles the case and he's a sellout for accepting the settlement. How convenient that the line keeps moving. Big mystery as to why.

    Kareem Hunt Signs with Browns

    You know, if you read the posts in this thread in the cadence and intonations of 1980s WWF wrestlers, things make a lot more sense.

    Bargain bin veteran free agents?

    You think that smoke coming from the engines of planes is just smoke bro?
  17. Here’s the reality of things: Very few, and I mean an extreme minority of people actually have the balls to go for what they want in life. Time moves pretty fast, one day you’re 21 and on top of the world and then the next you’re pushing 40. The last thing you want to have is looking yourself in the mirror, wishing you could have given something a shot when you were younger. Those who judge and chastise the ones who do take the plunge tend to be people living with that very regret. Good for him. If this is what he wants, go for it. Life is too short to not at least give it a try to do what makes you happy.
  19. I mean yeah if I wanted shirts that would match a sweet pair of dad jeans I suppose we could go cheaper.
  20. That's none of your business.
  21. Thank you for further displaying the dilemma in jpegs and links. That you think $30 for a t-shirt is a lot of money says a bit more about you than it does the actual cost of the merchandise. I think you may want to sit back and consider that it's 2019, not 1989.
