Uh. It’s not like the movie reviewed well, did it? Your argument is like saying you need to play a bad video game to know it’s a bad video game.

And if you have knowledge of Queen and how wild and dark the real story is, a glossy Hollywoodised version of that really doesn’t sound like it could ever be great.

It hoovering up award nominations and even the odd win seems to slot into the anomaly category with the likes of The Blind Side and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Sometimes movies that are at best ok seem to do well, and I’m not even talking about ones that meet the standard of quaility to be regarded as proper Oscars bait.
61% on RT with an average rating of 6.1/10, so fairly average. Which, outside of Malek's performance, is how I heard most people describe the movie.

I only drink Texas Tea.

Oil, that is.
This is the second time this week that something giant bomb related made me remember the beverly hillbillies.

I assume you've never been to the south? The tea will give you diabetes, but it's absolutely delicious.
I'm from the south. The way we make iced tea is too sickeningly sweet for my taste. I much prefer hot tea.

Apex, huh.

...Welp, see ya later.

Having seen the movie in theatres I'd agree with this extremely. That said, watching it at home and losing the Queen over big theatre speakers would drop that score for me.

I gotta try Sweet Tea, but I so rarely eat American food and it's always dumb shit that looks and tastes ludicrous and makes me feel like shit.

Except for Target's blue chips. Besides losing my job, Target Canada closing cost me those tortilla chips and I'm not sure which I miss more.

You basically need to go to the south to get actual sweet tea, since even northern sweet tea isn't even close. Tbh, I try and avoid it just because it's got so much sugar in it, but it is delicious with some southern fried food and greens.

We had to move pokeMONday night combat for this?
Don't get me wrong, I'm into it. It just reminded me of

Yeah, I'd like to go down there once to try a bunch of rich food talk to approximately zero people. I have an aunt from Newfoundland who married a southern guy and comes up to visit once a year or so. I remember sitting down for a meal with them and the first words out of his mouth were something along the lines of "What's up with those people with the turbans on their heads up here? They really do that?"

Quickest I ever downed food, that meal. Obviously they aren't all bad. I just dread the ones that are.

I bought a bunch of different imported dried chillies from a Mexican grocer and I'm gonna try making chili con carne from scratch this weekend.

Some said the word Texas, so it makes my post relevant.

I have never understood the difference between chili and chili con carne. Is the latter more soupy? Also how hot are those chilis?

it's Final Fantasy VIII's 20th anniversary and I'm thinking about it a lot and I'm slowly realising that, to me, that game was way more formative than I ever gave it credit for even though I never finished it until I was in uni
