@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:20 PM)

Unless I decide to do a voluntary Saturday shift.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:20 PM)

I can stay up 2 or 3 AM, sleep as long as I want, do my chores, go to work, and look forward to two days of weekend, every week until the end of the year.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:19 PM)

Working permanent late shift is awesome, despite the weird looks my coworkers give me.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:18 PM)

Especially now that I have every Saturday off.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2018 - 05:18 PM)

I'm so glad I have a guaranteed five-day work week.

@  Paladin : (25 May 2018 - 01:58 PM)

first day off in ages & I wound up baked. and not in the fun way...

@  Telly : (24 May 2018 - 10:22 PM)

one thing im worried about if i get it is im gonna love it and then ill be lost in gundam models lol

@  Telly : (24 May 2018 - 10:21 PM)

ill have to keep an eye on that one

Bandai just released a new Zaku in the Origin line, looks like the new definitive at the HG price point

@  Liege : (24 May 2018 - 12:42 PM)

@Telly try the HG rather than the RG, there are a ton of great Zaku variants that are doable for beginners

If there is an economic system, somebody will find a way to abuse it for personal gain.

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 01:18 PM)

@unluckiness I believe you are correct, but I didn't feel like looking it up so I didn't want to mention it. If that is the case, it isn't "capitalism" anyway. Maybe crapitalism (crony capitalism).

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:46 AM)

Like richard said, it's not inherently less healthy than table sugar. It's unhealthy in how it's in everything, leading to increased calorie intake that we don't even realize.

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:43 AM)

Also you try organizing a boycott of Coca frigging cola and see how far you get. Not to mention all the other processed foods that also make use of it that aren't as notorious for it

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:42 AM)

I believe the US government subsidizes corn farmers to such a degree that corn is stupidly cheap, making corporations lean towards it far more

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 08:41 AM)

@SHIELD Agent 47 If HFCS was "caused" by capitalism, all it takes to solve it is people NOT buying it. As is, products that use actual sugar and countless alternative sweeteners are available. At least for big brands like Coca-Cola. ;)

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:40 AM)

And if doing so means that eventually is longer and less filled with complications, well, that junk food had better be the best junk ever

@  Otaku : (23 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

@Paladin Quality of life. So many things I enjoyed as a kid have caused (or at least aggravated) health issues later in life. By later, I mean it started in my mid-20's. XP

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:39 AM)

THere's a difference between having some and constantly stuffing your face with calories.

@  Paladin : (23 May 2018 - 08:33 AM)

we all die eventually. why not enjoy the stuff that tastes good in the time we have?

@  unluckiness : (23 May 2018 - 08:26 AM)

HFCS is never good for you any way. It's nothing but monosaccharides basically

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 May 2018 - 11:32 PM)

*sigh* Wouldn't be that much of a problem if not for Western capitalism.

@  RichardT1977 : (22 May 2018 - 05:45 PM)

The only thing that makes HFCS more unhealthy than sugar is its lower cost.

@  Telly : (22 May 2018 - 03:20 PM)

looking at a video review and seeing all the tiny parts makes me think twice about it anyway

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2018 - 03:04 PM)

You should probably ask in the Gundam thread.

@  Telly : (22 May 2018 - 02:52 PM)

is this any good? i dont know about gundam models but want a good zaku https://www.amazon.c...0C7D2WQ09A9A9MZ

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:33 PM)

Dammit, and I was just about to hook up this Coke IV directly to my bloodstream, too. Killjoy :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 May 2018 - 12:28 PM)

Recommendation: if you're going to fill your body up with junk food, try real sugar instead of HFCS.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:10 PM)

Not so much that it's worth the extra money to buy it in glass bottles all the time (I think the most you can get is a 6-pack of Coke in glass bottles around here, and it's signifcantly more expensive than 6 plastic), but every once in a while it's nice to drink from an old-fashioned bottle

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2018 - 12:08 PM)

Personally, I find they also tend to taste better out of a glass bottle compared to the plastic ones used most of the time

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2018 - 11:27 AM)

None that I know of, but it's a neat fact. Sodas in glass bottles stay carbonated.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2018 - 11:00 AM)

what vending machines still use glass???

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2018 - 10:54 AM)

And it won't lose carbonation if it's a properly sealed glass bottle.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:51 AM)

The drink is safe to drink for a good while after, the expiration date seems to apply to how "good" it will be. Usually the carbonation gives out before anything starts growing or it becomes unsafe to consume

@  Paladin : (22 May 2018 - 10:31 AM)

out of curiosity, how solid are the expiration dates on soft drinks?

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Sure does feel like they are shoring themselves up against losing a significant source of revenue...

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2018 - 10:25 AM)

So I guess Hasbro is going to be making Overwatch toys now

@  Otaku : (19 May 2018 - 02:17 PM)

@TM2-Megatron Yeah, it is like @TheMightyMollusk says. The catch is that usually means they can contain beef, and I confirmed it by pushing my luck. XD So... yeah, if going to the theater was about watching the film, it might be worth potentially resting on the balls of my feet while technically sitting in the chair, but put it all together... and I just wait to watch it at home. Oh, and ticket prices, always ticket prices.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2018 - 10:24 AM)

woot woot! Korean barbeque for dinner!

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 May 2018 - 05:51 AM)

It's meat scraps. Whatever's left over from cutting up the more choice cuts.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 May 2018 - 11:26 PM)

Well, the hot dogs Cineplex has (pretty much our only big theatre chain) around here are quite good, but I have no idea of the composition, and honestly, it's probably better that way.

@  Otaku : (18 May 2018 - 10:01 PM)

@TM2-Megatron In my case, shouldn't risk the hot dogs, either. Maybe if they are guaranteed to contain NO beef (can't digest it anymore >_<).

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 bet if I watched this movie 100 more times, I would never be able to tell who was supposed to be who.

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