James "Whitey" Bulger found dead in his cell.

Never saw Black Mass with Depp. Any good?

Depp's makeup sometimes seemed overkill, but it was all well acted IMO.

It's an intriguing and ridiculous story to as Bulger was kind of enabled by government by abusing his protected status as an informant.

I enjoyed it.

Don’t get some of the weird hate his passing is getting.

I watched the Friday night show and don't remember much about Lee then but I see this is all based on a blog post from yesterday. I like Maher but seems like a dumb argument.

I also saw another celebrity acting like Stan was no big deal that people make him out to be. I don’t remember who it was.

Not sure he's hating or just finds the surge of comic book inspired entertainment among adults culturally confusing; he fails to see any merit in them as entertainment.

Also, he just wants to ignore Stan Lee was just a likeable public figure though with a lot of nostalgia around the properties he created or helped launch.

I think its partially old man yelling at clouds and part he's one of those me me me people that feels the need to have everything measured to their liking and needed to insert himself in because he needed me me me time to balance it out.

Pete Shelley of the Buzzcocks. You guys are probably too young to know who that is. Era of Sex Pistols. British. Wrote lots of snappy pop-punk songs. Good guy, not the typical arrogant, angry jerk you'd associate with punk. I listened to plenty of their music when I was a teenager. He died at 63 of a heart attack.
