Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

Yyyyyeah, that's ANOTHER one that Marvel shouldn't be recasting. I think J.K. Simmons even said on Stern recently that he wants to play the role again.

Not only that he wants to, he even hinted that there'd been some talk about it on some level.

 

So if Sony's not averse to reusing any previous actors, they could do a helluva lot worse than sticking with a proven favorite who's also picked up an Oscar nomination in the meantime.

I'm really curious how Civil War will work. To be in anyway like the source material you need a certain population of Super powered folk in the Universe. Adding Spidey and Black Panther should help but they really need more, and that's a LOT of stuff to intro in one film AND continue the character story lines from Cap 2...

ZacWilliam, there are lots of ways they can make it work I'm just curious what form it ends up taking..:

I still want it to be as little like the source material as possible.

 

Just "Cap and Tony disagree on something", now with extra added "and Spidey in the middle". Beyond that, the movie could be about the three of them trying to order lunch.

MCU Civil War will result in Tony coming up behind Bruce and pushing him down some stairs yelling "PARKOUR!"

 

Spidey, traveling by, misinterprets the comment and spends the rest of the movie paranoid that Stark has discovered his secret.

We already know from the interviews Feige did around the announcement that the disagreement is going to be over whether the super heroes have to answer to the government/authorities.

But yeah, it's certainly shaping up to be a busy film. If I'm remembering correctly, all the following have been confirmed for it: Cap, Iron Man, Black Panther, the Falcon, Black Widow, the Winter Soldier, Crossbones, Zemo, and now Spidey.

How would I do Civil War?

I'd suggest in A2 that superheroes were becoming a bigger thing and there are more. Then I'd start Civil War with some version of the Stanford Incident ( I'd prefer not to kill the real New Warriors though cause I LIKE them). Iron Man responds by thinking we need to get all Super Powered folk on sides as a Government sponsored Avengers Army. Cap thinks that's a terrible idea given how Hydra turned SHEILD into. Some actual Villian escallates thing and the disagreement turns into actual combat between two teams. Cap gets Black Panther. Spidey starts on IM side then tries to make peace petween them. Eventually they work together enough to take down the villain ( Baron Zemo?) and that leads to Iron Mans view triumphant for the moment and Cap arrested.

I fully realize that's not as awesome and intricate and surprising a plot as Cap2. That was a really great film. Honestly I don't know how to make Civil War into that good a story. I would have prefered their fake tease of "Serpent Society".

-ZacWilliam, the Serpent Society is just so fun and campy if done in their wonderful themed costumes. Plus Diamondback.

I'd almost suspect that with how late Civil War likely is in pre-production (got to get it out by May of next year), that Spidey's role will be akin to an extended cameo/minor role (like Phil Coulson in Iron Man 1) simply as a precaution from Sony dicking around with things.

 

Personally, if I was doing this and if Sony is really game to leave the creative side to Marvel, I'd do a "transition" film in 2017.  Start the film with the Peter Parker we all know and love, and pull a "Metal Gear Solid 2" and flip focus to a Miles Morales based Spider-Man film.  To me, that'd be a GREAT way to to cover most basis: the companies get the recognizable Spidey for marketing, Marvel/Sony get to do a new origin film without retreading the same material for a third time, Marvel gets "their own" Spider-Man to integrate with the greater MCU and it would help distance this version from the prior installments both in time and by giving audiences a "new" Spider-Man, something fresh for the films.

 

But that might be a little too optimistic.

What's interesting about Spidey in the MCU is the fact that most of the heroes (and villains) we've seen so far don't maintain secret identities. From the end of the first movie, Stark was very openly Iron Man, and we've watched the impact that has had in the lives of those around him. Everyone knows Steve Rogers is Captain America. Heck, Barton and Romanov barely even have codenames.

 

With Spider-Man and Daredevil we'll be seeing the seeds of 'masked' heroes that spins the MCU version of the Civil War story. It's an interesting dynamic to add to the mix.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

iirc, MArvel has been pushing at getting Spidey for Civil War since they decided to do it. I would theorize that he has role in it, and that if it wasn't him they'd use another siimilar 'young idealistic hero' to fill the basic role.
