Me too.  Think I'll need to pick up my copy of Good Omens to read again. :(

He had been sick for a long time, though, and was understandably freaked out about the ongoing effects of Alzheimers.  That makes me feel a little better about him not having to suffer through that any more.

That's the one I got as well - definitely recommended.  There are a bunch of other extras, too, including (I think) four relevant episodes of Batman: The Animated Series and one of The Brave and the Bold.

I saw the animated adaptation of The Dark Knight Returns today (both parts), and it's pretty solid.  It's based on a great source, so all they had to do was not screw it up, and they didn't.  The art style matches the comic nicely, and some of the stuff is a darn-near perfect match for it.  I like the girl who did the voice of Carrie in real acting, but some of her lines fell a little flat here.  The guys who did Batman and Gordon were great, and Michael Emerson's Joker was a surprisingly nice fit for the way the character's written.  (He does a bit of a Paul Lynde impersonation.) 

There was an interesting feature about Bob Kane (one of the creators of Batman) as well.  It's pretty balanced, with footage of him and interviews that don't necessarily paint him in the best light, but then also some stuff with those same people explaining why it's easy to get a picture of him as a worse dude than he really was.  (Mark Hamill is in it quite a bit, as well as people like Bruce Timm and Stan Lee.  Pretty cool.)  And also, they don't forget to talk about the other people involved, like Bill Finger.  Didn't have time to finish it yet, but looking forward to doing so.

What was the fix?

Thank you for asking - I hate when I search for something that is going wrong and find a post where someone else had the issue and their last reply is "nevermind I fixed it."

I finally saw Big Hero 6.  I liked it.

Haha - yeah, their categories are kind of messed up.

On the subject of Airplane!, I learned recently that there are a bunch of scenes where it is a shot-for-shot remake of a movie called Zero Hour.  Here's a video showing at least some of those scenes:

My wife and I watched John Dies At The End tonight.  I think we both liked it, but man, it's bizarre.

I think that once he kills his main target, he's willing to be done, but they pull him back in and are like "we're not gonna let this go," so he has to kill the rest of them too.

When they
Code:
killed his dog
a few minutes in, my wife was pretty unhappy, despite the fact that I think she knew it was coming.  And I told her "they did it because it's so terrible that no matter what he does for the rest of the movie, you'll never think he went too far."  And you know what? I never did think that.  I did think the villains were mighty stupid for not just dropping the whole matter a time or two, though.

"Netflix is describing it as “Game of Thrones” for a family audience"

That sounds like one of the worst things ever.

Saw John Wick tonight.  Awesome.

Saw Gone Girl last night... not sure I'm glad I did.  It's a good movie, but I don't like dark realistic stuff.

I read Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, quite liked it.

I came across a copy of Name of the Wind cheap the other day, so that's up next.

Thanks, Yoda!  I have some coins to spend too, and I see some worthy stuff.

I felt the same way about the Tarzan book or two that I read.  It's very much "the white guy wins because he's white and therefore smarter and faster and stronger and just all around a better guy than anyone else."

You might check out the first John Carter book, though - I remember it being better about that kind of thing, although it's been a while.
