'Take that! People who care about things!'

@  Rycochet : (15 July 2020 - 11:02 AM)

With Brian, he stopped being the voice of reason and started to be the right wing notion of a liberal, someone who's lazy, pretentious, doesn't work at anything, is every bit as abusive as the rest of the cast and only wins arguments with strawmen.

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

Of course, I stopped enjoying Family Guy around that time, so my bias is clear. XP

@  Otaku : (15 July 2020 - 10:54 AM)

Is it because they changed or we changed?  Stuff that was charming, or at least, funny at first can get really annoying the longer you know a person... and I find that can go for fictional characters as well.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:45 AM)

One example is Family Guy where around season 8 Brian is suddenly reviled by everyone and has acted way out of character since.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 July 2020 - 03:44 AM)

My least favorite thing in fiction is when it changes hands so you get a author, writer or showrunner who hates a character or messes with a arc/layout.

@  Paladin : (14 July 2020 - 06:18 AM)

the correct answwer to "who shot first" will always be "Harrison Ford if he ever hears that hugging question again."

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 July 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Han shot first. Plain and simple.

"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

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)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

I'm surprised they're going with the alien origin, honestly. Ultimate Universe's "Science With Good Intentions Gone Wrong" origin seems like a better cinematic fit, honestly.

 

And yeah, the Guyver parallels are pretty apt. Heck, the Guyver INTRO makes a better trailer for Venom then this trailer:

Are they definitely going the alien route? I thought it looked vague enough that it still could have been a government experiment or something.

As long as this is separate from the MCU's Spider-Man, I don't really care what they do with it. I doubt I'll bother with it; watching that trailer finally makes me understand what other people feel when they talk about comic book movie fatigue; although in this case it's just Sony movie fatigue.

 

Sony should forget about making new films and focus on releasing catalog titles on 4K Blu-Ray... at that, they truly have no equal.

"No, the symbiote does not take over and control you! How the hell did Venom swing around that tower without touching anything, can he friggin fly? WHY does Venom have EYEBALLS?"

 

Its jumping than flying from what I can tell, as for the eye balls, it just makes him look more threatening.

 

As for this movie, I think its likely to end up being a Box office bomb because outside of comic book fans and those who saw Spiderman on TV as a kid/teenager the charater of Venom isn't that well known, much like a lot of Spiderman's foes to the general public, plus the fact they seem to be leaving out the vitial element of the alien getting a copy of spiderman's powers from Peter Parker, its just going to be a movie that not worth seeing and likely appear in the cinemas and be out within the space of a month or so.

 

The question that remains is how hard will this bomb for Sony, enough for them to sell the rights to Spiderman movies and all the rouges back to their rightful owners, Marvel?

However good or bad Venom does is irrelevant when they got "Into the Spiderverse" hitting a couple months later, and early reactions for that have been quite positive.

Sadly, despite the crazy train that is this movies eventual end, Sony are still ploughing ahead with their Silver and Black (Silver Sable and Black Cat) movie that Amy Pascal really wants.

Much like Venom, though to a slightly lesser extent. I really don’t see those characters carrying a seperate film.

They're not even second-tier, they're more like fourth-tier. Black Widow has been in movies for like 6 years and they can't even make a stand-alone for her. Who the heck cares about Black Cat?

I'm still not completely convinced this will be that good, but that last shot is the money maker for this. I'm just afraid that last shot of the Symbiote fully envolping him as Venom won't be until the final act.

Not a bad trailer, and I like the vibe of it. I think that I will wait to see more on this before deciding on whether it is worth buying or just a rent.
