21 Worthless Sonny Bunch Review Of The New Avengers Movie

Note to the Free Bacon: if you're going to have someone review a Super Hero movie, make sure it's someone familiar with the source material and genre.

Because everything Sonny whines about here is a set trope of Comic Books, and is *exactly what audiences want to see.*

No, there's no "dramatic tension" and "no stakes" because you know none of the main characters are going to die- or even if they do they'll be resurrected later.

The CPS gig pays better, and has better advancement to management.

Exactly.

Also, if your definition of "dramatic tension" is that there's a good chance of a main character dying (or even a beloved supporting character) then you don't want to watch any action movie made in America. We don't roll that way (as a rule).

The Europeans sometimes do that, but Americans want the hero to kick ass, take names, chew bubblegum, and get the girl.

The guy who directed Equilibrium even said it about the penultimate fight (the one between Taye Diggs and Christian Bale)- "I saw no reason to make this a fight scene- everyone knew from the beginning who was going to win."

Atlanta police shot and killed a handcuffed black woman on Thursday after she fired on two officers from inside a patrol car, the city's police department said.

The woman had been arrested and was in the back of the vehicle in downtown Atlanta around 5 p.m. local time, Atlanta Police Sergeant Gregory Lyon said in an email.

She then fired on the officers, who were also black, sitting in the front of the car, Lyon said. The officers returned fire. The woman was taken to a local hospital where she later died, he said.

103 Ummm, WTF.



Atlanta police shot and killed a handcuffed black woman on Thursday
after she fired on two officers from inside a patrol car, the city's
police department said.



The woman had been arrested and was in the back of the vehicle in
downtown Atlanta around 5 p.m. local time, Atlanta Police Sergeant
Gregory Lyon said in an email.



She then fired on the officers, who were also black, sitting in the
front of the car, Lyon said. The officers returned fire. The woman was
taken to a local hospital where she later died, he said.

Must not have checked her snootch when they patted her down. Still, if you are going to fire at cops, from the backseat of the squad car, whilst handcuffed, it's prolly best not to miss. Would be my recommendation.

But yeah, I'm trying, but can't think of the slogan that will go along with these riots.

My guess is they didn't handcuff her properly.
Though that doesn't answer how they missed a gun when they searched her.

My best guess (just going on what you posted) is that she was arrested for a non-violent incident (public intoxication or something) and so they didn't consider her a threat. Not considering her a threat (still my speculation here) they didn't do as thorough a job searching her as they should have, and didn't handcuff her properly.

Which shows very bad judgement.

Yeah, but if you're handcuffed properly (wrists facing outward, behind your back) it's nigh-impossible (for most people) do anything with your hands. Your hands will be facing the wrong direction for you to have any control, and with your elbows bent like that, it's very, very hard to slip your legs through to get your hands back in front of you.

Which indicates to me that she wasn't handcuffed properly.

After dinner, and over the cigars (I must say they do know how to stock good cigars at the National Socialist Club), we had a very instructive discussion about the coming equality of man and the nationalisation of capital. (Jerome K. Jerome, The New Utopia)

I think the problem here is that everything proposed is always external, while the actual problem is internal motivations of individuals. I know many black people who work hard, get married, have kids, and live decent, criminal free lives. They are not the problem. It is not a monolithic culture.

But people who really and truly believe their is no hope outside of somebody ELSE doing something for them are stuck and will never make it out of poverty or criminality. And it's damn sad and infuriating to watch because there is really nothing I personally can do about it - it has to come from the people themselves. But any mention of this is immediately decried as racism.

The media are irredeemably corrupt. They don't need to be held responsible for particular actions. They need to be destroyed.

My modest proposals:

Copyright law protection should run exactly as long as patent protection i.e. 20 years. Everything released before May 1, 1995 should be in the public domain. That includes almost all of the Disney catalog, including "The Little Mermaid" and "The Lion King".

Every year broadcast spectrum should be auctioned.


It should be much much easier to win a liable case against a media organization. Since they are professionals with layers of fact checkers, they should have to meet a higher standard of accuracy than the guy at the water cooler or some guy with a blog.


It would be unconstitutional to tax content in newspapers or magazines. However, taxing advertisements seems just dandy. And I see no reason that a special surtax on advertisements for full page advertisements for designer clothes or watches that cost more than most people make in a year in the New York Times should be problematic.

Some of what reporters do meets the legal definition of burglary. Check the laws in your state but you may be legally justified in shooting them when they are on your property.

I don't understand. If the injury occurred in the vehicle what are they going to accuse the cops of doing? There was another prisoner in the vehicle who was unharmed. Was he better secured?

Just the anger and list of charges is a bit surprising. She's charging a whole bunch of cops with a whole bunch of crimes.

i read the Ultron 8-track origin comment to the mrs. She replied, funny thing is, I don't even know if that's a joke or not.

In her defense, after reading the comments I'm getting the impression that it's a joke, but honestly, I still am not sure.

Friend's husband is guarding the BCPD HQ. I'm sure the mostly peaceful "protesters" won't seek any vigilante justice or anything.

279 Anyone watch Blackish? Funny show--I'm trying to catch up. Watched an episode last night where the main character's wife was appalled at some of the things her husband and in-laws were saying. "That's racist!" she gasped. "Nonsense--black people can't be racist!" was the reply.

She has major Resting Bitch Face. I wouldn't want a prosecutor with Resting Bitch Face going after me.

Posted by: JackStraw at May 01, 2015 10:58 AM (g1DWB)

281 Hold on... so you're saying some prosecutor is going to make a decision on whether to prosecute someone, based on something other than the evidence gathered regarding whether a crime was committed or not, but rather on whether it is politically expedient to do so?

This is another one of those made-up comic book back stories... right?

282 C'mon folks, our legal system follows a logical sequence of steps from end to beginning-

1. Inflict punishment on local businesses
2. Declare a narrative
3. Inflame public passion
4. Declare guilt of the accused
5. Identify the accused
6. Select a designated victim
7. Cherry pick the evidence
