nobody here has moved past Wave 1. maybe if they hadn't crammed it with repaints....

@  Noideaforaname : (25 June 2017 - 06:46 AM)

Nitro's gonna be a pain in the butt to find, isn't he?

@  Pennpenn : (25 June 2017 - 03:51 AM)

Actually, on the subject of TLK toys, the voyager Nitro Zues or whatver looks pretty good. If I see it cheap I might give it to the Thunderwing head.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 09:58 PM)

Been playing a bit of Saints Row 4 and honestly the Blast Blast is hilariously overpowered.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 05:23 PM)

It actually has half decent gimmicks too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 04:03 PM)

It's still crap but at least it takes up less space.

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 10:31 AM)

I'd rather have Armada Sideswipe than Alternator Sideswipe.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 June 2017 - 09:50 AM)

What he's really doing is buying all the sideswipe, so that after the apocolypse.. He'll have an army to take ove the world!

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2017 - 09:00 AM)

We could be taking this the wrong way. What if this person means to sacrifice their own money to prevent Armada Sideswipes from falling into the hands of those who don't know better?

@  Rycochet : (24 June 2017 - 06:26 AM)

People say silly things online all the time, usually followed by a smilie or a wink. Take away the context and they go from being a joke to absurd hyperbole.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2017 - 06:07 AM)

But that would miss the entire point of hyperbole.

@  Pennpenn : (24 June 2017 - 06:03 AM)

Well that's a stupid attitude from someone who would waste a lot of money. I mean, they should just... not buy movie toys?

@  Bass X0 : (24 June 2017 - 04:52 AM)

Most insane thing I read of the day: "I would rather buy 100 Armada Sideswipes and PRiD Airachnids than buy any Bayformers crap"

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:10 PM)

His dialogue is full of allusions to his infamous lookalike, though sometimes as subversions. Oh, and sometimes he sings Karaoke. Check his rendition of "My Way", it's on Youtube.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:09 PM)

The entire idea behind the character is that he looks and talks like Hitler, but is actually a good guy. Maybe with a dickish attitude, but he's not the villain.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:08 PM)

Alfons Hatler is a supporting character from a German Edgar Wallace parody movie and its sequel.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

I'd like to remind everyone that Alfons Hatler exists, which is all sorts of awesome.

Epilogue is the worst thing to happen to mankind. And I'm including, like, all the wars and stuff.

@  Evac : (23 June 2017 - 02:11 PM)

... Did Linkara cover that one?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 01:50 PM)

the comics where Barbara quit being Batgirl after she was beaten into a miscarriage.

@  Boomhauer : (23 June 2017 - 01:20 PM)

His choice to be Batman had more punch when he was a completely normal guy met with the same dillema instead of the DNA garbage that muddies the message for no other reason than to give Old Bruce another ass-kiss before the show is over. It's a boring episode whose entire concept is repeating things already known and spark Squawkbox arguments.

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 01:11 PM)

But he still chose to be batman. Not only did he chose to be batman, he did it better.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 12:46 PM)

I have to agree.. Part of the problem with Epilogue is it takes away from "Terry CHOSE to be batman" and changed it a bit to "Terry was designed to be batman."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2017 - 12:13 PM)

Do you mean the DCAU continuity comics or Future's End?

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 11:36 AM)

can we all at least agree it's a better ending for Batman Beyond than the comics?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 June 2017 - 10:52 AM)

There was no evidence of it to support it in the show, and generally using someone to MAKE a batman is a jerkish thing to do.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:37 AM)

why does it matter?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (23 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

I think the problem with Epilogue was making Terry effectivly Batman's son.

@  Benbot : (23 June 2017 - 10:24 AM)

what's your problem with it?

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 10:02 AM)

Epilogue give a great end to Batman Beyond and even has a Mask of the Phantasm character

@  MrBlud : (23 June 2017 - 09:55 AM)

I don't post in the Shoutbox often, but when I do, it's to confirm "Epilogue" is garbage.

@  Paladin : (23 June 2017 - 08:43 AM)

even "Epilogue" ? (braces for that argument again)

@  The Predaking : (23 June 2017 - 08:26 AM)

Yeah, miles is only used when accuracy doesn't actually matter, or we're dealing with americans.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2017 - 03:55 AM)

We even use "miles" in similar contexts in German even though we use kilometers for actual measurements.

@  The Doctor Who : (23 June 2017 - 02:40 AM)

Makes sense, really. Colloquialisms exist in their own weird little universe where terminology can persist after it's no longer relevant otherwise.

@  abates : (23 June 2017 - 01:17 AM)

We also measure car milage in kilometres but still call it milage.

@  Bass X0 : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM)

No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:06 PM)

AMC knows it, freakin $7 for a regular drink

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

Nobody ever said "Wolverine" or "X-Men" out loud during the whole movie did they? Although there were several clear and obvious visual references to both. 

 

Was there any references to the other guy with claws as being related to Sabretooth? If not, there should have been. Does Sabretooth have a son in the comics? I forget.

 

I also didn't stay to see if there were a post-credits scene. Was there?

 

And X-23 needs her own movie now.

No post credit scene (Im in the USA)

 

 

To say this film is brutal is an understatement. Not just in violence but in its tone.
 
A fitting end for Hugh Jackman imo.
 
 
Pros
 
Jackman/Stewart/and Dafne Keens acting. 
You can feel how old and tired Logan is . 
Keen portrays a feral child with a hint of sentiment well.
IMO This is Stewarts best performance. for the most part in previous X-films, hes played a benevolent, saintly Xavier.
In this one, he is sarcastic, bitter, funny as hell, and yet tender at times. I feel he should be nominated for an Oscar.
 
The fight scenes are very well-shot, bloody and unnerving for both Logan and x-23. You see all the impacts and there is minimal CG.
It even gets Mortal Kombat esque at times.
 
The growing bond between X-23 and Logan is slow  but touching .
 
Boyd Holbrook plays Pierce as a "charming southern gentleman" and may be one of the few times a henchman is more interesting than the main villain in an X-film.
 
the odd decision to have actual X-men comics in the movie doesnt take you out of it. It's used as a meta joke as well as serving as a plot point.
 
the music felt somewhat Western and Terminator 2 inspired.
 
the end - SNIFF :sad:
 
 
Cons
 
The main villain is shown very sparingly and plays an even lesser role in the final battle.
the other Reavers besides Pierce arent notable or any characters from the comics (that I could tell)
 
There is a character made from scratch for this film who appears at the end of Act 2.
While it sort of makes sense given Lauras origins, I was personally hoping one of Logans previous villains would have appeared.
This character doenst get much screentime out of fights so it may not bother you as much as robot Silver Samurai imo.
 
Like Deadpool, the villains are mostly functional for the plot but arent developed much or super memorable.
 
 
Notes: He doesnt wear the classic costume at all (No big loss as this type of story wouldnt fit)
 
 
Overall: A powerful character drama with great action. Much BETTER thanApocalypse.
              8.5/10

I thought it was Sabertooth at first. I would have been fine if they tried calling him Daken.

Pierce was pretty cool. The kids were terrifying at that part. (They're not New Mutant tho. Comic Rictor isn't a telekinetic type)

It would have been much cooler if it had actually been Daken in appearance and (slightly altered) backstory despite such a movie not being focused on Daken.

didnt gabriella call him wolverine the first time she saw him? and when the comics are shown, wolvie says "we have an x-men fan"

 

so the deadpool part was an actual part of the movie? i thought it was just a new teaser trailer. though the several firefly posters promiently shown confuse me. i guess its cause morena was in the first one? is she in the second? and i liked the "nathan summers coming soon?" on the phonebooth

 

though i want now more than ever for hugh to come back and make a deadpool movie

 

as for the movie itself, its was good. dont feel a need to see it again til it hits blu ray though

See, Fox, I knew if you put your mind to it, you could make a good Wolverine movie.

 

(No I didn't, this completely surprised me)

 

The pre-(opening)credit scene was hilarious, but I didn't take it as being part of the movie. It was just a short, like a Bug Bunny cartoon. Only much more appropriate.

 

Honestly, I wish New Mutants would pick up from here. It would have a purpose and its name would make sense, two things that won't remotely be true when taking place during the McAvoy/Xavier era.

This was a really awesome film.  I really enjoyed how they "realistically" portrayed how lethal an actual Wolverine character would be.  The guy has stabby knives coming out of his hands!

 

I saw that "Bonebreaker" was a character during the credits.  I was disappointed not to see a guy who was a torso riding around on tank treads.  Not sure which cannon-fodder Reaver character he was supposed to be.

I'm gonna miss seeing Jackman and Stewart play those roles. :( (I'd love it if they filmed a sneaky cameo for Deadpool 2)
