  1. Yeah...sure. Anyway, yes, Canada is doing pretty well all things considered. Re-opening has begun snowballing as businesses realize they will in fact be able to do business. Almost every restaurant is dine-in here at this point, with proper social distancing policies in effect of course.
  2. Watched Life Itself (the Dan Fogelman one) this evening with the girlfriend and....it wasn't bad? Don't know what the critics saw that resulted in a 14% RT score. Clearly the audience disagreed, given the 83% audience score. We enjoyed it. 6/10
  3. Soooo the Bubba Wallace incident was a whole lotta nothing. Congrats everyone.
  4. The nature of those breakdown videos is that they waaaaay overthink things. The movie will be fine.
  5. https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/ontario-records-lowest-number-of-new-covid-19-cases-in-nearly-three-months-1.4994349 Great news for Ontario!
  6. Speaking of games, recently started playing Watch Dogs for the first time (for $9 bucks on the X-Box store, why not?). I'm kinda hooked.
  7. Ah, gotcha. We'll see what comes of it. What's the general feeling on COVID over there in the UK? Fear? Desperation to open up again?
  8. If I was in complete denial about it I wouldn't be talking about taking risks because I wouldn't believe there are any to take. Anyway, may as well end this here because you aren't addressing my point.
  9. Meh, I'm not sure. It will get old quick. There's only so long people will keep up the buzz and conversation before saying "release the damn movie already or I'm out".
  10. So #BrownFragility and #BrownComplicity are trending on Twitter. For real. Check this out I can't anymore. 😂
  11. You make a good point. It's easy for me to be cavalier when I'm talking from BC. I'm fortunate to live here. And yes, I'll definitely still wear a mask. I don't get popcorn every time I go to a movie anyway so the few times that I do, I'll take it off, chomp away, then put it back on again until I feel like eating more.
  12. Surprised at this, but just glad they're on the way to re-opening. I was fully willing to wear a mask whenever I'm not eating or drinking, whether it would have mattered or not.
  13. You're basically advocating for another lockdown or close to it. Otherwise, what's the point in anything opening up? The idea is that anyone who goes to a restaurant, theatre etc. is accountable for their choice to go in the first place. They assume risk of a fellow patron making them sick. Could that result in lost lives? Maaaaaybe, but again, if you want to avoid that then you may as well advocate for everything to close up shop again because there's no point in them being open. Also, what's your take on the mass BLM protests in this context?
  14. Theatres are opening up no matter what. Are you saying nobody should go then, because if we do we're all selfish? If theatres are opening, it's because the appropriate authorities have deemed it okay to do so. Are you saying nobody should show up? Furthermore, and back to my point, it's on other people for showing up knowing there's a potential risk of getting sick. Don't want to risk gettick sick because someone several seats away takes off their mask to eat some popcorn? Don't go then! Everyone who goes to the theatre, or any public place right now really, has to know they're assuming some risk. While we're at it, do you think all the BLM protesters are selfish? Sure, most of them are wearing masks but we're predictably seeing cases go up again. Hmm, I wonder why that is.
  15. Huh. I hadn't heard this. I figured clinical approval - which hasn't happened yet, to my knowledge - would be necessary before an order of this magnitude.
  16. I am aware, and that's my entire point. I realize we can't avoid the court of public opinion but that's why I'm counting on the grown ups - aka the studio, Spielberg, etc. - to not engage in that and wait for due process, like how WB handled the Johnny Depp situation leading up to Fantastic Beasts 2. Let Twitter and woke folks cancel away. They have no power but to rage amongst themselves (so long as nobody caves to it - I know that they in fact do have a lot of power nowadays with people in power caving ).
  17. It's not about theatres just "caring about the money" Concessions are what keep theatres in business. I absolutely expect theatres to continue selling popcorn and drinks and there to be some leeway with the mask policy so people can eat and drink. People have to accept personal responsibility here. Theatres are waiting for the go ahead from the authorities to open so they're playing by the rules. After that, it's YOUR choice to actually go to the theatre or not. If you think it's dangerous, don't go and then blame the theatre if you get sick (or if you make someone else sick). I'm going to the theatre as soon as it opens and you bet I"m going to celebrate with a popcorn and drink! If I get sick, that's on ME.
  18. Uh, no. I'm waiting for some sort of investigation to take place and then waiting to see if he's actually charged and then convicted? Have we completely forgotten the concept of due process and how a court of law works in the age of cancel culture?
  19. I agree, especially with a movie like this as you said. If Ansel is indeed guilty, the movie is toast.
