What are somethings and movies that Datalounge does not seem to care for?
I noticed not many people here is excited for Catching Fire the movie, because I posted several threads over the past few months and every one of them flopped. I guess it's the age gap. I probably wouldn't like to watch 20 year olds when I get to be 60 either.
'I probably wouldn't like to watch 20 year olds when I get to be 60 either.'
Were your other threads as snarky as this one? No wonder they flopped.
A movie aimed at 14 year old girls is unlikely to be a high priority with middle-aged gay men.
I responded to several Catching Fire threads, but they didn't exactly, well, catch fire. There were just too many threads at once. If there had been only one, perhaps it would have received traction. You should try one closer to the opening and call it the "Official Thread" or some such thing.
I think part of it is Jennifer Lawrence hate not so much Hunger Games hate. There were plenty of popular threads about the first film here.
My only interest in Catching Fire is Sam Claflin who plays Finnick.
Will Liam Hemsworth be keeping his mouth shut and removing his shirt, OP? That's the only thing of worth a 20-something has to offer me.
OP, honestly: what exactly is there to talk about? I say that as someone who *likes* Jennifer Lawrence btw, and also liked the first "Hunger Games" movie. If you've read the books, you already know exactly what will happen. (It's for this reason that I never understood the insane fandom for "Harry Potter," "Twilight" or "The Lord of the Rings," either.) If not, you've probably figured out the basics of the sequel from the trailers.
If anything, I'm more looking forward to seeing her in the new "X-Men" movie next year.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
