Alan Sidney Patrick Rickman, 21 February 1946 – 14 January 2016

Cancer. Again.

This shit has got to stop, I can't have this go on all year.

>Shovel billions of dollars towards cancer prevention/vaccination and we still don't have the means to prevent even celebrities from dropping like flies from this shit!

Blame it on pharmacy moguls squashing down on any significant advances in cancer research. They'd rather have a cure that works slowly or doesn't work at all, than something that will heal the patient in few short therapies. Former brings them more money, latter doesn't.

A cure would make them more money than any treatment.

Cancer is a complex malady that is still not fully understood.

Most of them would still wind up like Tom, calling things "far out" and "groovy" in 1998.

No wonder nothing in this trailer looks like a Star Trek movie.

I can't be as bad as the 9/11 trutherism in the last movie.

I mean… it can't, right?

Ugh, just one year away from an acceptable age to die (in my books anyways)! Rest in the ages of space, Bowie. You were a star that was high enough to get a constellation to call his own.

ID: aa14c  No.827

One of those pop culture icons that you knew even if you didn't listen to his music.

Died only a couple days after releasing his album. I didn't even know he had cancer, let alone battled it for 18 months.

ID: 8d468  No.828

And as I said to my friend, look at Keith Richards….72 years old, chainsmoker, does all kinds of drugs, looks like he got every drop of life sucked out of him, and he is still kicking it like it's nobody's business.

The truth is your genetics are the single biggest determining factor. Your lifestyle just minimizes or exaggerates your risks. But if your risks are really low to begin with, you may not be raising them that much at all.

>>I didn't even know he had cancer, let alone battled it for 18 months.

No one did. As seems to be the tradition in the UK lately, he kept it private until it was over.

(Though if you watch the videos for "Blackstar" and "Lazarus", it's fairly clear–the former has the skeletal corpse of Major Tom featured prominently, while the latter has Bowie bedridden singing lyrics like Look up here, I’m in heaven / I’ve got scars that can’t be seen / I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen / Everybody knows me now.)

Another legend has ended, hopefully the last one for the year of 2015.

Rock on in the halls of Heavy Metal Vahalla Lemmy!

Soooo….after years of being spent in development hell, the sequel to ID is finally coming out. Most of the old cast will be coming back, with exception of Will Smith, due to him demanding to be paid 50 million $ for his role. Instead, his character is only mentioned as dying in a test flight accident involving reverse-engineered alien tech.

My only reaction to the trailer is…it all looks so painfully generic. Still better than what Star Trek Beyond trailer has shown.

>it all looks so painfully generic.

And the first movie wasn't?

This is either going to be decent movie, or a good bad movie. I'll take either one to be honest.

ID: 933ba  No.807

If it sticks to the original's style of "a few huge sfx setpieces then action/light comedy/tension drama", then it'll be a nice change from "everything exploding constantly". Happy to see Jeff Goldblum mumbling it up, Pullman makes a good Ex President Beardy, and hey Judd Hirsch is still alive and looks alright for 80.

Not sure how I feel knowing ID4 was 20 years ago, tho.

Dude looks exactly the same, it's time to frisk him for hellrings.

ID: 757cc  No.810

Has he ever been in anything with John Stammos or Keanu Reeves? Or if they meet do they have to try and take eachother's heads?

ID: 1f538  No.811


I wonder if he drinks earl grey tea like Patrick Stewart?

So, this came out while we were down.

Since we have no collapsing threads or spoilers yet, let's keep the big huge surprises out. (It's been months, long enough most of the rest of the fandom has given up the spoiler warnings, but seems only fair.)

I've got a theory Mac is precognisant. He doesn't speak because he doesn't want to accidentally change anyone's fate if he knows things will be alright. He speaks up when things will turn out crap if he doesn't

That's a damn good theory and I love it.

How did Harry just reference Zork? Shouldn't that be, like, impossible?

ID: 8ffe6  No.702


Before the term became rather corrupted by the internet, "meme" meant "an idea or information that propagates itself regardless of its original context".

Zork is pretty memetic among nerd culture, he probably picked it up from one of his friends.

That makes sense.

But man, Changes is exausting to read. Everything is so high stakes and so tense throughout every scene with no wind down. I keep finding myself needing to take a break every two chapters so I can relax.

I won't miss the rape-y crap in his movies, but I'll sure miss his taste in horror.

Rest in Peace, Wes Cadaver.

>Previous rap battle was, for no particular reason, in lego form

>This one it's Ellen vs. Oprah
>Their Oprah is thinner and more attractive than the real thing ever was
>Raps are pretty tame, and they steer well clear of anything that could actually offend Oprah fans (cracks about her weight, about how her following's like a cult, about how she's endorsed what's basically scientology's sickly baby brother, how she's more narcissistic than Trump, etc.)
>Reaffirms that female versus female ERBs are basically the equivalent of Diva Matches

Man, this season started off so strong, too.

Good thing they weren't about history
they OCCASIONALLY do history ones but the whole point is person A vs Person B having a rap battle

The WWE moment of silence, ten bell rings, and tribute montage.

(I like that you can tell who does and doesn't know who Roddy was in the WWE lineup.)
