If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

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.

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

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.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

Unless most of the Apocalypse cast comes back for Dark Phoenix, it'll probably feel like a bit of a strange continuation.  I suppose they'll be able to get most of the kids, but are McAvoy, Fassbender and Lawrence done with X-Men at this point?

Because 1) They reset the timeline so none of that ever happened. And 2) they did a horrible job of it the first time.

Yeah but X3 is an affront to God and nature that, much like the Wolverine Origins film, is rapidly being buried as never having actually happened.

 

That said, I have zero hopes for a Dark Phoenix film because Fox hasn't spent any time developing the cosmic side of the X-verse, and really a dedicated tale about the Dark Phoenix would require the same amount of set up that the MCU's Phase One required. Much like how Warner Brothers somehow thinks they can jump straight into the Justice League with only a movie's worth of groundwork laid, Fox doesn't seem to grasp that the Dark Phoenix requires more then just a 11th hour reveal at the end of a film as set up. But then, they did the same thing to Apocalypse.

 

Seriously, after the success of Disney and the MCU, you'd think the competitors would start figuring out why MCU movies are making wads of cash.

I love the concepts of any one of those. But having not introduced the Shi'ar or even the possibility of life outside of Earth in the X-Men movie universe, I just don't see how they could do Dark Phoenix any kind of justice.

I doubt Deadpool will be a disappointment. The people working on it care too much (as evidenced by what they could do with the budget of the first movie). This isn't just another paycheck for them. It's a love project. Those tend to do well.

I hope New Mutants does do well. I absolutely adore Wolfsbane and Magik. Kinda like how Blink really thrilled me to no end in Days of Future Past, I'd really like to see the movie introductions of Wolfsbane and Magik to be received well.

Has James Mangold expressed any interest in doing non-Wolverine X-movies? You'd think Fox would want to keep him around considering how well his 2 movies did.

Fox also should've thought to poach Whedon before WB did. How many other big name directors have an X-Men run on their resume?

Well one of those is already true, as she is going to be part of Fox's TV series "Gifted".  She'll be played by Jamie Chung.  Who I think is a good choice considering Fan Bing Bing played her the first time around (Jamie being American would be better suited for a more meaty role in an English speaking production than Fan Bing Bing, since English isn't her first language).

 

I just hope the look and abilities are the same or similar.  Granted the effects would be as magnificent as DoFP's were, but here's hoping.

Simon Kinberg states that his version of Dark Phoenix will be "grounded, human, emotional & not too intergalactic."

which means they've missed the hugging POINT of an X-Men story YET AGAIN.

what did you expect? these films have always only been "x-men" in name only

 

 

 

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will bring back the cast of X-Men: Apocalypse, including (the usual suspects)
.
.
.
 
Kinberg previously confirmed that the next X-Men movie would jump ahead ten years from Apocalypse, offering a 1990s setting for the sequel.

 

even for comic book time, this is just get ridiculous now. (i think) 30 years is supposed to have passed in these films yet they all look like they did in he first one!

 

also, i am sick to death of dark phoenix. its been done like 5 different times in every media (and this is the second time in film!). i dont doubt its a classic, but there are MANY x-men stories out there to adapt from (not that they can get those right either though). why keep coming back to this one?

 

that said, ill still end up seeing it and buying it on bluray cause ive got all the other x-men movies. no point in stopping now. and who knows? maybe ill actually enjoy it (but i doubt it)
