Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

This was just recently posted by Mike Mignola:
 

Okay, here's some news--
There IS going to be another HELLBOY MOVIE.
It's going to be an R rated reboot directed by Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game Of Thrones) and starring David Harbour (Stranger Things) as Hellboy.
More news to come soon--
 
definitely want to see how this develops...

No one asked for this reboot they asked for a Hellboy 3 with Perlmen (myself included)

While 1&2 were visually stunning, and some parts of the characters were extremely well done.   I found the shoe horned "romance" was quite odd (seeing all the media for Hellboy, places the Agents at best akin to Bond with a girl/guy of the adventure).  Abe's crush (in 2) was fine, the stuff with Liz felt like a bad fan fiction.

The cartoons they made, Blood and Iron, and Sword of Storms... were very much on point with the comics.  Also the character of Liz was WAY more appealing in the toons.

Hopefully they continue on that strain.   But really, I'd have preferred a Troll Hunter's-esque cartoon series in the veins of the above.  Add in Johann and Roger....   Personally I'd love to see a BPRD movie, focused on Abe's past and horrible fate.

I'm rather optimistic.

An R-rated Hellboy reboot holds zero appeal for me.

Perlman IS Hellboy. The late, great John Hurt IS Professor Broom. And we haven't got the delt Toro Hellboy 3!

Unless this R version is done with the same care as Logan, it could just end up as a blodfy, swear filled mess of tasteless humour because 'mature'.

I hope they take the right lessons from Deadpool and Logan, though i'm not inspired.

I wouldn't worry over much about it being akin to Deadpool.

Hellboy isn't a comedian.   While he's snarky (and can be amusing), as is Abe and Liz...   the Hellboy/BPRD series is not a humour filled one.  It's tragic and violent for all involved.  Extremely so.  One can only hope they chose the R-rating to do it justice.

This is one of those rare occasions I actually agree with 2017^

 

Del Toro made the two films for me and Perlman is Hellboy. With neither it's going to work it's butt off to convince me to see it.

Maybe, since it's R-rated, we'll get some full frontal nudity.

Just copy the Simpsons and have an extended nude skateboard sequence.

Yeah, I also agree with 2017 for once. I'd much rather have a third del Toro Hellboy. It just doesn't feel right without Ron as Hellboy.

4th? 5th'd? Whatever it is, Pearman makes Bellboy, and as I recall, actively wants to reprise the role. While Del Toro would be ideal, I think Neil could possibly do it justice. Dog Soldiers (his best film) and Doomsday both give me hope for this, but it will be a real hard sell without Pearlman.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Perlman is the voice I hear when I read Hellboy comics. He is Hellboy! The new guy will only ever come across as knock-off not-Ron Perlman.

Sorry to be contrarian, but count me amongst those that never really got in sync with Del Toro's take on "Hellboy". Del Toro's technicolor imagination never fit with the horror/noir tone that the original Hellboy books tiptoed through. I really feel that "Hellboy" would be much better served with a sub-$100M budget and a studio like Blumhouse at the helm and hold high hopes for this reboot.


Yep.

I want to see Hellboy 3, not a reboot, if the reboot fails, there's always plan A, the sequel people have been waiting for and if that falls through, they might as well go and make a TV series based on the charater, comic book TV series can do well if done right.
