    the great thing about P3 paints is they use a liquid pigment so they dont seperate quite as poorly as standard solid pigment paints
  3. 2014 is as close as you're going to get. Highest-grossing films adjusted for inflation as of 2014[29][30][TFA] RankTitleWorldwide gross (2014 $)Year 1 Gone with the Wind $3,440,000,0001939 2 Avatar $3,020,000,0002009 3 Star Wars $2,825,000,0001977 4 TitanicT $2,516,000,0001997 5 The Sound of Music $2,366,000,0001965 6 E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial $2,310,000,0001982 7 The Ten Commandments $2,187,000,0001956 8 Doctor Zhivago $2,073,000,0001965 9 Jaws $2,027,000,0001975 10 Snow White and the Seven DwarfsS $1,819,000,0001937
  4. also it took 700mil LESS than TFA. that's a fair amount of "not giving a fuck" and i dont see ep9 getting more than TLJ.
  5. but that's not true though is it. As if all the star wars fans never became invested in the story and original films, then disney wouldn't have purchased it, lucas would have been a relatively unknown director. we'd not be having this discussion. they bought star wars. this is true. but they didnt buy it for any other reason than to make money. if they're mismanaging their IP through bad calls and decisions then they'll make less money. they'll make less money if they turn their die hard fanbase away through wanting to appeal to a different audience. one which appears to not really give a fuck if takings is a reflection.
  6. SOLO: A Star Wars Story

    who knows. i give up.
  7. China is a good comparision to this. China doesn't particularly love Star Wars. it doesnt have the connection that those "middle aged white dudes" have.therefore it doesnt get the views. If star wars is now deciding that it doesnt want to give those "MAWD" what they want in a movie, a franchise that they've lapped up every old shit from for the past 40 years in merch and side stories etc. then there's no mystery why the movie has made less than TFA. Disney has decided its time for a new generation. a generation with less money and different standards. when its those MAWD that have all the money and the rabid fervor of thier beloved franchise. Ive never been LESS interested in seeing the next star wars movie than i am after seeing TLJ. that's not becuase of some bullshit "oh you hate women" thing, its because it's not what i want from star wars. I wanted luke to be back and sort some shit out, i wanted a story that didnt just decide "to hell with continuity and sense" i wanted a reason to care for the "new" characters. i was given none of this. the next main star wars movie, now has: only chewbacca as an established continuing humanoid character. no han solo, no leia, no luke. it does have an undeveloped overpowered Rey which i dont have any emotional attachment to. a whiny weak main bad guy. and two dudes who have also been undeveloped, and one who's character was undermined in the name of character development and we now think is a bit of a dick. its not my star wars. and i yet am not even a middle aged white dude. i am getting there though. also i dont think a yearly thing is a problem. We'd dreamed about wanting this for decades. If we got awesome movies every year, we'd be lapping that shit up. underwhelming cash grabs with core problems? thats the issue.

    those pirates are great
  9. Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    the only shitty thing about that is their notice of "plastic sisters" on the clock. the ocmmunity has been crying out for it for years. and now its made a joke in their community video. im hoping its a "yeah we know, we're on it" kind of a hint.

    i broke one bit off just cutting stuff carefully from the sprue. looked like there was an airbubble in one of the 1mm thick tubes.

  12. The Man Utd Thread

    Hooked felliani? Has it finally sunk in?
  13. The Man Utd Thread

    He nearly scored with one of the few chances hes had. The issue is the midfield. If your mid is struggling your attackers will br starved.
  14. The Man Utd Thread

    We need lingard off, martial moved to left, sanchez moved in the middle herrera on id drop young for a proper defender too.
  15. The Man Utd Thread

    Summary of 2nd goal is Jones still hasnt remembered how to defend and scored an own goal instead.
