It's hard to believe this movie is 13 years old. I know it's no "underrated gem" or anything, but it's a great movie that should always be celebrated. And with it being that old, I'm certain there are a lot of younger people that haven't seen it.
Jason Segel came out of the gate with his first written film and nailed it. And it's all thanks for Judd Apatow. Jason wasn't getting work after Freaks and Geeks was cancelled and same for Undeclared (both Judd Apatow shows). Judd gave him the advice to write something for himself so that he has something to sell to a studio rather than auditioning. What Jason wrote became Forgetting Sarah Marshall.
"I'm so sorry, Fred," the therapist replied, "but I already gave them to Michael."
Use this post to discuss whatever you want! Future dream casts, trying your stand up career, crying shenanigans about this season's robbed cinnamon bun... it all goes here. Just remember to be civil and keep opinions here and not in the speculation threads. Thank you!
Do you guy's find yourself completely forgetting that Sarah was 12 when the outbreak hit? Given how young she died, I constantly remember the fact that if Sarah hadn't died that day, she'd literally be older than most of the character's you encounter in the game, and it just kinda blows my mind, knowing that those characters were fully grown adults, and I never put Sarah's age into perspective, as she died young as hell, and in the beginning. Sarah was born in 2001, so she's actually older than Henry (by 7 years) older than Abby by 16-17 years, 19-18 years older than Sam. And what I just realized, which completely BLOWS my damn mind, that I never noticed, is Sarah's actually slightly younger than Tess. In 2033, Tess was in her late 30s, around 37-38. In 2033 Sarah would have turned 32. So Tess was only around 5-6 years older than Sarah, being born around 1995-1996. So at the time of Sarah's birth, Joel would've been 16-17, and Tess would've been around 6-7, just a wee lad. It's incredibly interesting to think about, honestly. For me, it kinda puts in perspective how badass Sarah could've possibly had been, had she not of met such an unexpected end to her life.
In the movie the Terminator, the Terminator killed 17 cops trying to get to Sarah Conner. Could it do the same thing if all those cops were replaced with the most badass cops cinema has to offer (or at least the most badass without repeating actors)?
The following hero cops are inside the station:
Here is the police shootout in case you need to refresh your memory. Everything starts the same with the Terminator smashing through the front doors of the station and killing the officer at the reception desk. All the hero cops are in the office area and have whatever weapon they would realistically have at their desk plus whatever they can get from the armoury.
The Terminator wins if he makes it to the rear parking lot of the police station to see Sarah Conner escaping. The cops win if they destroy or immobilize the Terminator.
BONUS: Judge Dredd [Karl Urban version] versus the Terminator in an empty police station. Can Dredd take on the Terminator solo?
Today is the 100th anniversary of one of the worst -- and potentially least known, incidents of racial violence in the US -- the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre.
This tragedy left at least 78 and and up to 300 people (depending on source) dead, mainly Black; over 800 people were treated in hospitals, and up to 6,000 Black residents were rounded up and interned for several days.
Additionally, one of, if not the most, propserous black community in the country, Greenwood, was destroyed; 35 square blocks of Tulsa, burnt to the ground. From wikipedia:
"About 10,000 Black people were left homeless, and property damage amounted to more than $1.5 million in real estate and $750,000 in personal property (equivalent to $32.65 million in 2020)."
What was the proximal cause of this massacre and destruction? 19 year old Richard "Dick" Roland (Born James / Jimmie Jones, and whose last name was corrupted in the press to Rowland), took a break from his shoeshine job to go to the Drexel building, the only one nearby to have a "Colored Only" restroom. As Roland entered the elevator, operated by a 17 year old white girl named Sarah Page, he stumbled, grabbing Page's arm. (Some sources say he stepped on her foot). This startled her and causing her to cry out.
A passenger in the elevator saw the incident and reported it as assault. Roland was arrested. Rumours circulated that he was to be lynched. Around 75 Black men, many of whom were WWI veterans, rushed to the jail to prevent this. Even though the sheriff assured them of Roland's safety, a shot was fired by one party or another. This started a firefight that left 12 dead, and started off the mob violence resulting in the death and destruction detailed above. It stopped when the Oklahoma National Guard was called in and imposed martial law.
Fearing reprisal, , Tulsa’s sheriff, Willard McCullough, and deputy, Barney Cleaver, one of the first Black law officers in Oklahoma, spirited Dick Roland out of town.
Charges against Roland were dropped when Sarah Page wrote an exonerating letter declining to press charges.
Sarah Page also disappeared from Oklahoma.
Here is where the mystery comes in. What happened to Dick Roland and Sarah Page? According to this Washington Post article, (which also serves as the required link for the mods), Dick moved to Kansas City -- as did Sarah. A... keep reading on reddit ➡
This seems relevant for this sub. Big McElroy energy in this one (I assume that's a required notation to post here).
