It's one of my biggest pet peeves. I love beautiful cover art on books and I hate to say I do judge a book by its cover. There's this book I want its a Swedish horror novel and every single copy I can find the cover is a still from the movie adaption. I hate being this picky but when I know the original cover art for the book is nice I don't want a film poster on it. I almost don't even want to get the book. I've seen this trend happen with a lot books that turned into movies and frankly I don't care that it's a movie. I'm here for the book! I don't want to see the movie cover I want to see the original book cover. I love how unique book cover art can be and I feel like slapping the movie poster on every new copy does the book a slight disservice. I know im sounding like a cover snob and I know there's more to books than the book cover but I cant help but being annoyed when it's all I can find for new copies.
Edit: on a happier note here's some of my favorite book covers.
Edit edit: I'm sorry I didn't realize this was such an overused topic on the sub. I have only been a member on this sub for a few months so I didn't know. Was just a little rant and don't have any reader friends irl to share it with so I came here instead.
Pelicans Coach Stan Van Gundy voiced his support of Cuban's new policy of not playing the anthem before every game. Curious to see how this pans out. There's now both an owner and a coach speaking out against the playing of the national anthem before games.
>If you think the anthem needs to be played before sporting events, then play it before every movie, concert, church service and the start of every work day at every business. What good reason is there to play the anthem before a game?
I've finally got around to watch AKIRA and man I was just blown away at the art style, the music, the story. The detail alone in the animation is by far the most spectacular hand drawn animation I've ever seen.
The story leaves you wanting to know more and more about what is going to happen next, what it all means, and pulls you into the Kaneda, Tetsuo, and what Akira is all about.
I'm sad I haven't watched this sooner and just want to watch it again. I know there's so much I've probably missed on the first watch through and just wanted to share my excitement!
How will this story end? With a bunch of apes selling with paper hands? Or with a bunch of autists doubling down and going full retard. WSB has given happy endings for years to pay for FD's. Do we really want to throw away all those back alley blow jobs? Do we want this show to end with a fizzle, or with a ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
Mark Cuban's speaking fee is $75,000. He just came here and unloaded his wisdom for free. For the benefit of our cause.

Jerk off, collect yourself, lets show Melvin what the fuck we are made of.

i miss going to the movie theater.
i miss the crowds and the popcorn. i miss planning my weekend around what movies were coming out. i miss the laughs and the hype. i miss the disappointment and the sadness. i miss the 10 PM thursday night showings with no one else in the room. i miss not caring about anything else for 2 hours.
i really miss going to the movie theater.

Why in the ever living fuck did they spend money on a bullshit scene that never happened of bellatrix and fenir greyback and whoever else burning down the Wesley home which never fucking happened instead of using that money to do a marvolo gaunt memory scene?! It pisses me off every time. When I saw it in theaters I was like WHAT THE FUCK?! THAT NEVER HAPPENS WHAT ARE THEY GONNA DO FOR THE NEXT MOVIES?! but surprise surprise they just act like it never happened. Ok I'm done being so angry it just makes me so mad every time I watch. Also side note. When Harry is in Dumbledores office after seeing the real slughorn memory (in the movies) and Harry tochrs the ring and does the snake neck and Dumbledore says magic especially dark magic always leaves traces he's realizing Harry is a horcrux and I just realized that now and I've read the books 10,000 times and seen the movies that many as well and I JUST got that
Edit: wow I didn't think this would blow up! Thanks so much for the awards!! They're the first I've ever gotten. Thanks for all the input guys I tried to read all the comments. Good discussion after a drunken rant!!
It’s actually shocking to me that it never happened, considering every other YA fantasy of the day got that treatment. All the cover art for this series is beautiful and, as much as I like the movies, I’m beyond happy none of it ever got sidelined in favor of badly photoshopped images of Daniel Radcliffe against a smoky backdrop.
