Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Saw it, enjoyed it. Though one thing keeps 'bugging' me.

 

It's in the trailer so not really a spoiler. Hank can shrink his lab building and cart it along like a suitcase.

 

Except when you tilt it like that, wouldn't everything in the building shift/topple over/ and go everywhere?

 

Every time you'd make it large again, it should look like a hurricane hit the place. Yet that never happens. :rolleyes

 

It doesn't bother me take much, but I can't help but notice it.

 

 

Well, 

 

1. We only ever really see one room in that building; I assume all the important equipment is bolted down for travel. 

 

OR-

 

2. It's been established that Pym's tech changes density; that's why Ant Man is STRONGER when he's small. Maybe when the building & everything in it shrinks, it all stays in place because it's suddenly too heavy to move independently.

I imagine it's all just bolted down. Movable objects like rolling chars and whatnot may have built-in electromagnets that activate upon the building being shrunk down.

 

What I'm more curious about is what happens to already-shrunk objects or people when they're inside an object that's then shrunk itself.. IIRC there was a bit during the car chase where Ant-Man is already shrunk down inside the van, which Hope then shrinks. I guess he'd just get smaller? And what about Hank, in the quantum portal, in the shrunken building, inside the van which then shrinks?!

Can a Marvel zombie explain the Quantum Realm? Is that even a comic thing? I know about the Microverse and I assumed that's what Ant-Man would be going thru in the movie but what's the Quantum Realm?

Is it something from Fantastic Four but MCU Ant-Man hijacked it for himself? Even the Microverse is Fantastic Four.

I presume that when they shrunk the building then shrunk the car it was in, that was when Hank lost his signal and had to recalibrate.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Yeah, it seems to be performing roughly on par with the first, which is probably where they expected it to be.  Nobody was expecting Avengers numbers out of it, after all, and it's hard to compare to Black Panther since that was such a surprise mega-hit.

 

Its foreign totals seem a touch low right now, but it looks like the film hasn't opened in most of Europe or China yet, which is where the big money comes from.  Europe is worth a good 30-40M collectively, and China probably about 50M.  The movie is actually doing a lot better in Thailand and Taiwan than the first, so I'm not sure if that's signs the movie might have longer legs in China as well.

Finally saw this.  One quick thing that me and the wife were discussing:

 

Luis says that he really wants a suit of his own, even if it has minimal powers or even no powers at all.  Next Ant Man movie, Luis, through some turn of events, finds himself putting on an old, malfunctioning prototype Ant Man suit.  The suit doesn't shrink or grow properly, but does increase his density making him essentially un-crushable. He becomes:

It's funny, but I think my favourite part of the film was the intro, which was technically a rehash from the first film.  Maybe because it was a scene with hero'ing and actual stakes.  The rest of the film was pretty light on those two aspects, unfortunately, so definitely not really much of a superhero movie than a film about people with science-y powers pursuing personal agendas.  That's a bit of a letdown.

 

That's actually what I ended up liking best about this, because that feels so distinctly Marvel. Yeah, Marvel has these great epic stories, but there is a lot more "Adventures in Science" stories, specifically in the early days, Scientists with powers just using their powers and not always being heroic with them. Hell, that's pretty much the majority of the Fantastic Four's premise. They're not really Heroes, they can be yes and will gladly step up when needed. But that's kinda secondary with them, they are explorers of the unknown. This is the first movie that makes me think a good Fantastic Four movie could be made.

 

We've got so many other Heroes being heroes movies, that I just very much appreciate then... um... 'small' scale of this film, and how they're not really any heroes, not really any villians, Its just, mostly, two sets of science powered characters wanting the same goal for different but valid and understandable reasons. Besides the Arms dealer who is a nuicence at best. Ghost is the clear antagonist yes, but she's living on borrowed time and is desperate, and yet she can still be talked down. She just wants to live, and that makes her much more interesting then Yellowjacket.

since it's basically confirmed at this point that we'll get some time travel shenanigans in Avengers 4, I wouldn't put it past them to do an original Avengers (from the comics) group shot at least once.

 

Hope doesn't need to be around for that and neither does Scott
