Is the movie as boring as the poster? #shotsfired

Vertigo in Space.

I loved Ad Astra, but this poster doesn't really capture it for me. Could be for just about any space movie from the past decade.

My buddy saw it and said half the theater was asleep. Straight up snoring in there. Can’t say for myself though. Although wasn’t Lost City of Z kind of a borefest as well?

Wow... interesting... choice. :neutral:

Portraits are surely a pain in the ass when you can just feed your fanbase 8x8 birds and bongs, but it's still kind of disappointing the portrait series has fizzled out this hard.

So they finally bring back the SW Portraits after a year and half but raise the price $30 (not including their new tax) so the majority of the conversation surrounding the release is about the price hike and not the print itself.

Make Mondo Mediocre Again.

Ouch... I hadn't even noticed. Just assumed it'd be around the same as usual. Not sure I can justify when I already have the 'original.' :(

duh. of course, and like I said - If I were him I probably won't care to do them either.

My criticism here applies to the roll out of price hike. Maybe it was necessary with ACME, but I doubt it. Doesn't even matter - it's just silly/sad/stupid that the majority of the conversation about the print is about a price raise.

$80 vs $50/$40 ... you're going to buy it if you like it. People just like to complain about anything. What are you going to do with that extra $30? Couple Chick Fil-a sandwiches? Point is, if you'd buy it at $50 and not $80.... you shouldn't be buying it at $50 in the first place.
