    The Market 2021

    Not at all. ESG is something that needs to die a quick death.

    Movies 2023 and beyond

    The trailer for it didn't do much for me. I didn't think it looked that good from it. Zhao looks like she's a good up and coming* director but with it being an MCU movie it's not like a normal directing gig. She doesn't have full control over the movie and really only directs the non-action...

    Movies 2023 and beyond

    I think we're going to be seeing more of it than just Black Widow too. My gut's saying that Shang-Chi and Eternals aren't going to great either. I'm hoping a little streak of them might change things. We'll see what happens. I agree with you though that the audience is a big part of the...

    Movies 2023 and beyond

    Glad to hear you're frustrated by this with the studios. I've been saying for years now that the studios are creatively bankrupt. It seems like they're scared to take a chance on anything these days. Someone I know keeps saying that producers need to go back to the '80s with hookers and blow...

    HELOC

    Just YOLO it and put the $37k into GME or AMC. ;) Two questions, will paying HELOC put a crimp in your monthly cash flow? Is your mortgage + HELOC low enough that when we see a correction in the housing market that you're not going to a mile underwater. I don't know if there's as big of a...

    Robin Hood Swindle...err IPO

    Wow, reading this makes me think even less of Vlad. Chris breaks down Robin Hood's S-1 filing. It's pretty ugly. I was already planning on staying away from them. This cements it. I really hope they crash and burn.

    Dune (2021)(HBO Max/theaters)

    I've been hoping that Joker might have helped with this. A $55m R rated moving bringing in over a billion at the box office had to have caught the eye of an executive or two. I'm hoping we see more of that with the big blockbusters starting to struggle.

    Ted Lasso

    Heads up that season 2 started this weekend. I never realized that we have so many Dutch posters around here, especially the regulars in P&R. ;)

    Dune (2021)(HBO Max/theaters)

    I'm looking at Ghostbuster as a wildcard. It might do what you're saying due to how bad 2016 hurt the franchise. I think there might still be enough goodwill from the first 2 though that if it's a good and fun movie then it might over perform. I can really see it going either way. I think...

    Dune (2021)(HBO Max/theaters)

    Add Ghostbuster to the list as a possibility too. It was getting good buzz off of its trailer. Those four are probably the only ones with a chance and it'll depend on how covid goes between now and then. The rest of the release lineup for the year is pretty weak. After last weekend I don't...

    Dune (2021)(HBO Max/theaters)

    To be fair, they haven't really released a good movie either. All we've really gotten are bad sequels and a too late franchise movie. Black Window should have done that but it was a dud. The national organization of theater owners blasted Disney the other other day of the way it was handled...

    Passengers

    +1 I didn't like it either due to the actions of Pratt's character. He was in a tough spot but it's one that you have to suck it up. What he did was morally despicable to me.

    Dune (2021)(HBO Max/theaters)

    I'm apprehensive on it. I really want it to be a good movie. I like Villeneuve a lot as a director so that's a plus. There's just little faith on my part right now for Hollywood to make an adaptation of an existing property and stay true to it. Hopefully they do with it and it succeeds so...

    Does Ayton not know how to slam dunk?

    Black Widow

    I don't think her backstory hurt the movie as much as the bad writing by committee and directing by committee that we got. To me the backstory was a bit more minor since it wasn't an origin movie and a lot of it had been given out in previous movies. But I agree on them needing to give more...

    Plus it has LeGone Brains in it. That alone is enough for me to skip it.

    Monty needs to give Ayton a wake up speech again like he did earlier in the series.

    Black Widow

    I agree. This movie should have really come out after Civil War. Marvel did ScarJo wrong with not giving her a standalone movie back then. Overall I found the movie to be subpar. I have ranked as one of the bottom tier Marvel movies. The story and writing in it wasn't good. It really felt...

    Bucks @ Suns Thursday Finals game thread 7-8-2021 - Game 2

    There's an idea. I should put a small screen at the entrance to my home theater that shows the score if I'm watching a game. Anyone that comes around can use it as a gauge.

    We already have medicare for retirement but it still needs to be supplemented. For the talk in this thread it needs to be reformed since it's not fully covering the needs of our seniors.

    Retirement Planning Thread

    Question that I just thought of reading Russ's last post. When SS calculates your distribution does it take your gross or taxable income? Or something in between? The HSA discussion got me thinking on it if maximizing it is then slightly hurting the SS calculation since the money is pre-tax...

    Retirement Planning Thread

    The lack of choices sucks, I have the same complaint with my 401k. I want more options, even "dangerous" ones like trading individual stocks. At least give us ETFs in them. But getting 100% tax free money with the HSA outweighs it. I just wish Ouchie make the retirement comment 7 or 8 years...
