I just watched The Bourne Legacy, it has a 6.9 on imdb. That movie was infuriatingly bad, it rustled my jimmies. So I guess lol imdb ratings.

Indeed. Fanbois' relentless defending of all the glaring flaws is pretty lol though.

I kinda liked Bourne Legacy. The plot doesn't hold super well, but it's a competent, well made action film, without a whole ton of super CGI ness.

Thought the first 3 bourne movies were very good. I was told - strongly - not to waste my time with the 4th. So I didn't

Bourne movies made me wish I was some kind of uber-trained assassin when I was younger so I have fond memories of them.

I'd imagine they're all screamed out by Sunday afternoon. Friday night and Saturday evening football surely wear a soul down.

That happened and it was glorious. Then the second half happened, lol Saints.

Is that better or worse than Ralph Wilson naming the stadium after himself?

Didn't Ralph Wilson spend a boatload of his own money to remodel that stadium to stay in a crappy market when almost any other owner would have told the taxpayers "Pay up or we are leaving' ?

Ralph Wilson can call the stadium whatever he wants imo.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

I think the state chipped in virtually all of the cost, he named the stadium after himself, and then they proceeded to miss the playoffs every single year.
