SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

Optimus looks like his Siege figure. Maybe this will be canon to the Transformers ongoing comic series at the moment.

@  Cyoti : (06 February 2020 - 05:13 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (06 February 2020 - 05:02 PM)

I doubt megatron will fall for that friendship stuff.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 February 2020 - 12:39 PM)

Okay, Mr. Burns. What's your first name?

@  Paladin : (06 February 2020 - 12:21 PM)

i believe you have a letter for me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (06 February 2020 - 12:11 PM)

I would be totally against Simon Kinberg writing and directing this, given that he co-wrote "The Last Stand", but he's been killing it with his work on stuff like Logan, Legion, and the Gifted, so he's earned a second chance at the Dark Phoenix Saga.

 

According to my Entertainment Weekly issue, he knows that The Last Stand version of The Phoenix Saga was butchered and he wants to make the best version possible to make up for it. I will believe it when I see it.

Not the suits at the end of Apocalypse, but still very much blue and yellow outfits instead of black. :)

I'm all in favour of that uniform. It's also the first time it feels like we've got an actual x-men line up properly again in ages.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

The suits that are carbon copies of the early 00s Morrison era belong in First Class? Really?

Color scheme close, but the yellow stuff is an X (like the New X-Men stuff from Frank Quitely) rather than a T (for shoulders and down the middle) like they are here.

Well, at least it's in keeping with the First Class tradition of teasing comic accurate costumes only to abandon them within the next movie.

 

Yeah, I'm still upset about the lack of mileage we got out of Fassbender's 60s Magneto costume.

Yeah, I remember some people decrying it as stupid when his DoFP costume was revealed. But I loved it.

I really didn't care for his DoFP outfit. Way too "modern tactical body armor" for the time period, and the helmet redesign was stupid. Then Apocalypse happened and the less said about that costume, the better.

 

 

First Class Magneto was a callback to the classic comic book look while still being a evolution (Or rather a prototype) of his outfit in the first X-Men trilogy.

Yeah, I would have passed on Lawrence given the way she was phoning it in during Apocalypse but hey, if the script convinced her to say yes maybe she'll be more into it. Glad to see Fassbender return once more, even if Magneto is getting really played out in the franchise. I'm hoping now that we're into a new timeline maybe they won't try to shoehorn him into a villain role but have him and Charles reconcile and make him a teacher at the school.

 

New Mutants worries me. I get wanting a scarier movie, but shoehorning more characters into the mix doesn't feel like a good idea. I worry that one is especially going to fall victim of executive meddling.

I think they should let Magneto go at this point.  He's definitely run his course.

IMO, he was utterly out-of-place in Apocalypse.
