Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

Not necessarily. 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

@  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)

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.

@  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.

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:

 


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?

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

There's a scene of a large crashed something, suggesting alien arrival.

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.
