    1. SOLLUX CAPTOR

      yall know the drill by now

      Sollux rather transparently divides into "sol-lux", the Latin words for "sun" and "light", respectively. As such, his name would literally mean 'Sunlight Catcher'.

      If one would switch the S and P in his name it becomes "Pollux Castor." Pollux and Castor are the two brightest stars in the constellation of Gemini. It is also worth noting that Pollux is a red giant, while Castor is bluish white, complementing the red/blue duality theme. Castor and Pollux were famous mythological twins, which is where Gemini - Latin for "twins" - gets its name. Pollux and Castor were also the names of two characters in the movie Face/Off, a Nicolas Cage flick that came out the same year as Con Air and one that John Egbert has a poster of in his room.

    1. Mr. Russell, or some version of him, assays the role with a weird, disrupting digital face-lift that’s meant to suggest the young Ego, but really only makes you contemplate whether this Benjamin Button-style age-reversing is going to become an increasingly standard (and creepy) industry practice.

      So, in Ant Man, there is the same thing with Michael Douglas. I totally think it will be a common thing. Not just for flashbacks but for actors who want to play the role "younger."

    1. The first, say, one hour and thirty-five minutes of The Circle are enormously powerful, in an intelligent, worry-inducing kind of way. The film’s last fifteen minutes, which feel rushed, don’t quite measure up. The ending is ambiguous, confusing, and strangely open-ended. But maybe that’s only appropriate. It feels the most like reality.

      This is better than the NYT review said.

    1. Empire Strikes Back is the rare sequel that manages to outshine its predecessor.

      Wasn't expecting this!

    2. As film genres go, science fiction is often the one that’s hardest for folks to get into. Literal-minded moviegoers often have a hard time with worlds where anything—and everything—is possible and, well, some people just don’t like space.

      I guess this is true. You either love it or you hate it.
