"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.

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.

@  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.

@  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.

Can't read it.  What was said?  Also, what does that mean for projects like the New Mutants, Kitty Pryde, and Madrox.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix will be the last proper Fox Marvel movie, presumably also the last in that continuity. The crew behind the camera has been thanked for their work but their services will not be needed any longer, as everything is moving to Disney. Apparently, the X-Men being integrated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe is a done deal, and merely awaiting the approval of the merger. Kevin Feige is “hoovering up” all of the Fox-Marvel characters, and is already planning for them all to go into Phase 4. This includes the X-Men, Deadpool, and Fantastic Four. In what capacity and with what actors was not discussed.

 

I know they shuffled the schedule a bit; could this now come out AFTER New Mutants?

 

and "side projects" mean nothing; if nobody's actually working on anything it's just as easy to scrap.

Dark Phoenix is February 2019, New Mutants is August 2019.

 

Hopefully they don't muck up Deadpool, as Kevin Fiege has noted that the formula for that one works.

I was really hoping this merger was going to just leave the X-Men separate. Not because the X films have been particularly good overall, but because I think there's still lots that can be done with other characters before retreading Xavier/Magneto/Wolverine again. Give us Thunderbolts, Nextwave, Annihilation, a decent FF, Doom as the villain of Phase 6, whatever, just no more bloody Logan...

For some reason FOX has decided to drop the "X-Men" part of this movie's title.

 

It's now just "Dark Phoenix" (with apparently a circle around the "X").

this is dumb even by FOX standards.

DOFP left me with pretty high expectations for future X-Men films, but Apocalypse let me down. While Logan was fantastic, it also left me somewhat depressed if that's the ultimate fate of the DOFP-corrected timeline. The X-Men films are a bit of a roller coaster... but one I can never quite resist the urge to keep going back to in the hope that the journey will ultimately be satisfying, somehow.

 

At the moment my enthusiasm for X-Men is high, as the original trilogy was released on 4K blu-ray this week with fantastic new transfers that breath new life into the films... even X3. And thanks to DOFP, X3 is now tolerable to watch since it's no longer an (unsatisfying) end, but a means to an end. Now we just need Deadpool to use that fancy Carl F. Bucherer time watch to tweak the end of Logan and give us a happy ending.

See, thats the thing with Logan. It isn't the end of the DOFP timeline. It isn't the end if Any X-Movie timeline. It is a completely seperate universe all its own and, although certain movie events may have happenee in the Loganverses past, they didn't happen quite the same way as in the films.

Mangold and Jackman tried to be really clear on that. :)

So the trailer is basically HEY KIDS, DID YOU ENJOY X-MEN THE LAST STAND?!

HERE IT IS AGAIN! EXCEPT WITH SANSA STARK AND JLAW!


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

So just like X2, they tease the cosmic force Phoenix only to scale it back to a "Jean's actually secretly evil" plot.

 

Also Magneto is still in these films despite his relevance to them ending in DOFP. I get it, Fassbender is amazing. But the character of Magneto has long worn out his welcome and there are other X-frienemies. I don't even see a whiff of Sinister, who was teased at in Apocalypse.

 

I remember X3 jaded me so bad that it took a friend literally shoving a DVD copy of First Class into my hands and not allowing me to bring it back to him until I'd watched it for me to even give First Class the time of day. And it was honestly a great film - not without problems maybe but certainly the best X-Film to date to that point. And I got so excited for this new direction for the Franchise...and I watched the filmmakers throw all that promise - that chance to do things differently - bodily down a flight of stairs.


Edited by Rust, 27 September 2018 - 04:37 AM.

Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

Well there are hints that they are trying to do the space possession story with the Phoenix but other than the Blackbird/X-Jet breaking atmosphere there isnt a lot to go off of in the trailer.

I like Fassbenders Magneto but cant we go one core X-men movie without Magneto? But really other than the lack of what Apocalypse teased at the credits scene I really dont mind what I see. But thats both ways. Its just indifferent good or bad so far. But l would like to see the Phoenix story done better than X3 at least.
