"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

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

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)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 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)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

@  Gamma V : (18 May 2019 - 03:28 AM)

Haven't been here in a long time.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

I loved the trailer, but I'll be honest that the trailer teaser game me more goosebumps and feels. That said, this looks amazing, can't wait to see where they end it and what they set up for "Avengers 4"...

 

1) about 20 seconds in there is a couple, i think it's scarlet witch and I can't tell who else.  Who are they?

 

Scarlett Witch and a humanized Vision.

 

 

2) I'm guessing the fight in the woods by Wakanda means that there is a stone there? 

 

If they put the "Soul" Stone in Wakanda, I'm going to give them a sideways glance for being a little racist. But that's it.

Hnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng. So good.

This is all I wanna talk about today.

 

3) Loki's got the Cosmic Cube again. That seems bad. It also looks like his scepter is being used to pull out Vision's Infinity Stone. Also bad.

 

I thought so, too. But I watched it again and the design is completely different. It's Corvus Glaive's weapon, I'd wager. A few from the Black Order are there to be seen, albeit briefly.

I had 2 questions.

 

1) about 20 seconds in there is a couple, i think it's scarlet witch and I can't tell who else.  Who are they?

 

That's Scarlet Witch and Vision in a skin suit, if it's the same scene we're thinking of.

So tell me do you wanna go?

Hehe. It's funny.  Thanos' workout gear is a cosmic wife beater.   He puts on his real clothes when he has to deal with other people in a "professional" setting.

Interesting.  You'd think this is his more casual attire, and the other his battle gear.  But I guess it's warrior outfit versus ruler outfit type of thing.

Someone on another site called him Stone Cold Steve Thanos, and now that's all I can think of him as.

There's a lot to like in this trailer, I'm just wondering how the hell they can fit it all into one movie.

I can't believe they're actually, really going to kill off their core cast in A4. Though I guess after like 15 movies with Iron Man / Cap / Thor, they really can't keep doing them forever and no one would accept a re-casting within the same storyline. It isn't like James Bond that is always magically beginning with every new star.

 

im kind of looking forward to some of them going down. not that i WANT people to die, but EVERYONE surviving EVERYTHING is getting old and a teeny bit unbelievable now

 

 

see dc? THATS how you make a trailer that gets people excited!

 

course it helps for the movie to be good as well, but dc needs to take baby steps :p

 

Someone better drop the "Today, everyone here is an Avenger" line in this movie or the next one.

 

screw that. ive been dying to hear "avengers assemble" since the first avengers. thought we were gonna get it at the end of ultron, but weadon decided to be a tease. i even hollered "you mothers!" when they cut cap off and went to the credits lol

 

ill be there opening day

Eeeee! Ron Lim art! Teehee! :) :) :)

I really hope the Soul gem isn't in wakanda. It's too much to have the tessaract and the necklace Agamotto to be on Earth already then. That'd be half the gems and it's Earth bring the center of the plot universe again.

Thanos looks a bit weird without his helmet, but for a CG character he looks pretty good. Generations better than Steppenwolf, who looked like a PS3 era boss.
