    How far is Gotham from Metropolis? Is it like NY to LA, or NY to Philly?

    Wiki says it varied over the years, but in the Batman V Superman movie they say:

     

    In the 2016 film <i>Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice</i>, director Zach Snyder confirmed that Metropolis and Gotham City will be portrayed as geographically situated right next to each other, on the opposite sides of a bay, similar to Oakland and San Francisco.<sup id=”cite_ref-22″ class=”reference”>[22]</sup>

    Wait, what?

    So for board purposes it’s like Minneapolis/St. Paul and it’s Hotdish v. Sandwich Loaf: Dawn of Pot Luck

    Saw Creed. Thought it was great. Lots of references to past Rocky movies but unlike in Rocky Balboa they actually weren’t forced. Not that I hated Rocky Balboa, it was okay in a tacky sort of way, but this is actually a very good movie. Good acting, good plot, good directing, the references weren’t forced and fit. Was kinda surprised actually.

    Don’t you think that Mama Creed should have given Rocky the name of her financial advisor?

    I’m starting to fear that the new Star Wars may suck. I hope I am wrong.

    You’ve got a bad feeling about this, you’re saying?

    Side by side cities? Blech.

    Gotham is definitely the Oakland, and Metropolis the Sab Fran.

    Batfleck doesn’t seem like a such a pussy in this movie, so there’s one plus.

    St Vincent is another great Bill Murray performance

    Nice to see Spike Lee’s still got it at the box office.

    As much as I think ID4 is in the running for all time greatest bad movies that doesn’t look promising.   :lol:

     

    Loved The Night Before. Funny as fuck.  Enjoyed Bridge of Spies but man, we get it Spielberg — the US is a nation of laws, you don’t need to hammer it home in every movie and have your lead deliver a speech about it.  And aren’t Gitmo allegories a little fucked out by now?

    I wasn’t a fan of St. Vincent namely because of that one trick pony and generally unfunny McCarthy.  That and it mostly reminded me of About A Boy.

    For my reference, this thread is spoiler-friendly, enter at your own risk, correct?

    I think so though for big reveals I think we are a bit more discerning. If we don’t want to put the SW spoilers here I think that is a good policy.

    Ehh. It’s Bill Murray doing Bill Murray things.

    Watch Lost in Translation again.

    I was kinda torn whether I’d be interested in that “In The Heart of The Sea” that just came out. Trailer looked decent. But Ron Howard has been spotty at best IMO and definitely overrated by most. Not everything has been bad, but I definitely don’t consider him a top director. But I was probably leaning towards seeing it. Now reviews are mixed so I’ve swung back to leaning against. Probably doubtful now.

    I can’t tell if the new Star Trek trailer looks amazing, or it’s just been too long since I’ve listened to Ill Communication.

    Didn’t they use Sabotage in the first JJ Abrams Star Tek movie, when young Kirk stole the car and drove it over the cliff?
