But The Pillows prefer to kill you with Poison Rock'N'Roll

But is anything killing you softly?

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 03:03 AM)

Oh don't be ridiculous. Some things are killing us quickly!

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2018 - 09:23 PM)

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 02:29 AM)

How dare you! You KNOW Eevee is the obvious choice!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 December 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Finished mine a few days ago, and just bought myself (I really shouldn't have, but did anyway.) let's go pikachu with the pokeball.

@  Cybersnark : (05 December 2018 - 03:47 PM)

Mostly. There's a book en route to my mom's house from the UK and I don't know if it'll arrive before January.

Christmas shopping: complete.

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

(which would lead to a bunch of bad jokes about him selling a line of cashews, almonds, and pecans)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

That would make sense per the precedent of Kamen Rider OOO ("Kamen Raidā Ōzu").

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:35 PM)

Wouldn't it be pronounced "Kamen Rider D's"?

@  fourteenwings : (05 December 2018 - 11:37 AM)

Kamen Rider Dream Drop Distance?

@  Sabrblade : (05 December 2018 - 09:57 AM)

Kamen Rider DDD, or "3D" as it would be pronounced.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 December 2018 - 06:50 AM)

Dedede is secretly a Kamen Rider? You know what? Why not. I honestly wouldn't be suprised!

I love the rigged Mattel Electronics football game.  Fits right in with the Walkman cassette player from the first movie.

Ok, i saw an advanced screening. There's... five bonus scenes at the credits (I think it's five but I might be thinking they were part of the actual movie before the credits. I list five) so wait until the very, very end of everything.

General thought, rather emotional. My friend, who's a DC fan and didn't watch the first movie (gasp!) said it was forced (jerk). While I thought there were smarmy moments, I still got emotional anyway at two parts.

Ask me anything.

Just saw it. Loved it.
Its definitely more emotional but I really like this crew. A couple of the jokes didn't work for me but maybe 9/10 did.
Maybe not quite as good as the first but it's close.
Music never landed as well with me this time either. Im still gonna buy the cd again if there is one though.

I actually didn't like the abundance of drama. Everybody kept with the theme so it got tired for me. I still teared up with one of them though.

Honestly up there as one of my favourite Marvel films. In my opinion it's more developed than the first.

While it does retread some tropes, the plot itself is different enough to feel special and it brings a lot of new stuff to the table that develops both the team and the galaxy as a whole.

It's a Newcomic (apparently)

Long story short, it wasn't as good as the first, especially in the first half which was over indulgent with silliness. Fortunately it tempered out by the second half and became fully engrossing. I'd give it 8/10.


Ok Spoiler question: Was Stalones group at the end supposed to be someone? I'm not familiar with the comics.

I dunno.  The intro scene was easily the most entertained that I've been at an MCU film.

 

Some of it seemed very forced at times, but overall, I really liked this film and would definitely go and see it in the cinema again.

I never thought I'd say this about any of those characters, but holy crap, can we get that movie right now? Stallone at age 70 still looks like he could smash a brick wall with his chin and walk away, whistling.

I've read more than a few of the older books, enough that Martinex, Charlie-27, Nikki, and Starhawk (obviously) were easy to figure out. Really loved seeing Krugarr there, I'd be delighted if that guy earned another cameo in Doctor Strange. Who was the head though, was that Mainframe? It's been a while and some of the details are a bit foggy. The original books weren't particularly interesting and I didn't stick with them for long, I think I enjoyed them more when I was a kid. But the cameos still left me giddy.

 

What an exuberant movie, too. And they hit a lot of the right dramatic notes! With me, anyway. 

I've said for years that "Brandy" by Looking Glass is the perfect song. Validation of this magnitude is going to make me difficult to live with for the next week or so.

Saw it last night. No, it wasn't as good as the first (which might be in my personal top 3 all-time). Yes, it was still excellent and a film I'll be more than happy to see multiple times. I'm taking my sons to the matinee Sunday, and was excited for that as I was walking out of the theater last night.

 

It was exciting. It was engaging. It was funny. It was emotional. I cared about these characters.

 

And holy balls, that Stan Lee cameo. All the wide-eyed, cheer-stifling, finger pointing at that cameo.

I thought it was good. Not as good as the original. Much sloppier storytelling and script here.

Also, I'm really hating these sequels where they take all agency away from the characters. This story felt like the Guardians reading to events happening around them, rather than them having a say in their own story. It really makes a difference in the feeling of the story. I did like the change in theme this time around...
