    Valiant attempt by Reyes but...

    He's off the picos (maybe) and fighting near-equal sized man in his prime, not children or senior citizens.

    Who wrote that? The judges' scores are handwritten, but the final result is done by computer. That's strange. I wonder what the procedure is.

    Now this is what I'd like to see more on this forum ☝️

    I found myself wondering what enables Jones to move so little and keep pressing without using much energy. It is probably due to his td threat.

    UFC 247: Jones vs. Reyes

    Reyes did surprisingly well, I'm glad it was a good fight even thought the judges fudged it up in the end. Jones did nothing except 2 harmless short takedowns while Reyes had Jones in trouble several times. Reyes kept moving which was probably the single most important thing in this fight. Again we saw that when Jones fights someone near his own size, he isn't as godly as his lovers make him out to be. Jones is used to moving only a little if at all to dodge his opponents' attacks which saves his energy allowing him to turn it up during the championship rounds. I think Jones was surprised how well Reyes was able to hit him. Reyes also used a lot of leg kicks (finally!). Jones used more, though. If irc Reyes put Jones on his bum countering his leg kick. I would have liked to see more of those. Reyes' takedown defense was surprisingly good too and he got up quickly without taking any damage. This was probably due to his size again. Jones is used to wrestling people that are like children compared to him. Take the leverage advantage away and suddenly his wrestling isn't that good anymore even though he defeated an olympian... If they do the rematch, I hope Reyes doesn't go the Gus route and abandon everything that worked while Jones's team comes up with improvements.

    Ah, the old Texas rules 😂
  7. I don't get it either. Someone said it was because you can't change the future - which is bs if you ask me. What exactly prevents you from doing things differently? Don't know if that's what the writers thought.

    Hmm... ok. Not very convincing I have to say. How's his tdd?

    A statistical loss? What's the reach difference this time? When the time comes, I'm hoping it will be someone more deserving, talented or interesting.

    What are you seeing Skill? Just looked at Reyes' higlights and can't find a reason to expect anything from this fight.

    So... anyone giving Reyes a chance?

    The Witcher also contained this song, surely hit material:

    Recently saw these: Watchmen: intriguing, smart, fun, rewarding. A decent sequel to Watchmen. Only the ending bothered me, like so many times in stories with time travel/destiny stuff. Didn't drag on too long, but went ahead with good pace. Thumbs up. His Dark Materials: Not great, but pretty watchable. Felt fresh. Interesting to see where it goes from here, beyond the movie (Golden Compass). The Witcher: Top of this lot. Kinda hard to digest all the names, places and timelines, but always interesting. Nice mixture of short stories and story arcs. Cavill is superb as Geralt. Never played the games or read the books, though. Been meaning to check the games... Looking forward to seeing more and I'm sure they'll work out the little kinks they had on this first go.

    Maybe they should have killed both Rey and Kylo and then throw in the broomboy. And evil broomboy.

    The Mandalorian discussion thread (Warning:Spoilers)

    This wasn't directed at me, but I'll throw in my 2 cents. I read most of the leaks. I never do that, but in this case I wasn't going to see it in theatres until my mate asked me. I prefer to go in without preconceptions. I still tried to go in with an open mind, not sure how well I succeeded. The evidence against the movie was crushing, but I was still thinking there might be a chance I could like it. People can twist things around to suit their agenda, for sure. It didn't work for me. Neither did TLJ, but it had a couple of cool moments. TFA I liked because after the PT it captured the feel of a SW movie and it was funny. Pretty much the only good things about ROS was the Kylo and Rey relationship.

    I thought this would happen in the movie.

    The Mandalorian discussion thread (Warning:Spoilers)

    I think the opposite is more true. As a standalone (as if like no other SW movies exist) it is better.

    The Mandalorian discussion thread (Warning:Spoilers)

    It was bad. Most damningly, it didn't feel like anything. Things just appeared out of nothing and then disappeared. Like a Harry Potter movie or something. Complete detachment. Blah.

    Oz's tv show discussion thread

    I'm 3 episodes in. Pretty good. A bit rough around the edges, but Cavill is great as Geralt. Some of the humour seems out of place. Loads of names and characters to remember with little to connect them to. Action's quite good.

    At least it looks like it won't take the most obvious route. Might be something original even.

    They're gonna do a Netflix series, am I right? Movie would be doomed for sure, but a series has potential.
