I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

Personally, I see nothing wrong with giving Venom non-Spidey origins.  By focusing on just Brock & the Symbiote, it adds a bit of depth to both characters, rather than just having Venom being an extra violent clingy Ex, or Brock just being the worst reporter.
 
That being said, these trailers haven't convinced me that Sony can do a good Marvel film, without Marvel holding their hand.
 
Still, I hope to be pleasantly surprised.  And if it comes out good, than there's a chance it could be incorporated into the Marvel films.  I mean, the idea of doing bad guy origin movies has merit, since it can set up a future super hero film, in which you don't have to incorporate the villain's backstory into whatever story you've got planned.


That seems to be what Sony are hopingbfor. They're betting on Venom being a success and thus being the lynchpin for their tiny little piece of Marvel. By throwing up plans for Venom, Black, Silver Sable (possibly?) and Kraven the Hunter, there's been speculation that they could either be trying to build a universe to slot a Spiderman into, should they get sole ownership back. Or, they plan to serve up their group of to Marvel with a 'do you want these in your MCU? Can we have some money?'

This is all just grain of salt speculation of course.

PG13 and supposedly cut down to under two hours.

Not a good omen, but then again this movie's almost the epitome of "damned if you do; damned if you don't."

I can't disagree with the decision. A world where a Venom movie exists but 13-17 year olds couldn't go see it on their own would feel fundamentally wrong.

This doesn't bother me.  I'm sure that there'll be an Unrated or R cut on the Blu-Ray, and then I'll be able to judge both and keep watching the one that I like better.

This does not seem like the BEST angle to present on release week...

 

 


In an interview with ComicsExplained, Hardy said that all his favourite scenes had ended up on the cutting-room floor. When asked "What was your favourite scene to film?" he said: "Things that aren’t in this movie."

The Taboo star continued, in a possibly tongue-in-cheek reply: "There are, like, 30 to 40 minutes' worth of scenes that aren’t in this movie... all of them. Mad puppeteering scenes, dark comedy scenes. You know what I mean? They just never made it in."

 

 

On the other hand, it's good of them to clear up the rating thing.

 

 


"There isn't some phantom version of the movie," Tolmach told comicbook.com last week. "Everyone is asking us that. Is there an R-rated cut sitting there? There isn't."

 

"We only ever talked about this movie as being PG-13," director Ruben Fleisher added. "What I've said in the past is that we wanted to push the violence to the hilt. The Dark Knight was always a huge reference point for me, personally, just as far as how far you could take a PG-13." https://www.telegrap...venom-cut-film/

I saw it and thought it was decent.  At least as entertaining as Spider-man Homecoming and oddly similar in how Peter interacts with the AI, albeit Venom is a much more humorous counterpart.

Yeah, it was funny. I don't recall it when I read Venom though. But I was reading his adventures during the Erik Larsen Mark Bagley art David Michelinie writer times. I dunno what happened after, like Agent Venom or after the Planet of the Symbiotes.

Totally not liking that spoiler you put too. Geez. Someone new would have been nice.

It does sound like there's an R rated cut and Sony are just denying it because they want a competitor to MCU.

 

I mean MCU has the Marvel thing sown up. Deadpool was R because it fits the character and it was the only way to offer something different. Getting tired of the MCU? Have this edgy 4th wall breaking piss take that maaaaybe is in continuity with them?

It was okay.  I think the big "reveal" mid-credits inspired more chuckles from the audience than awe, but I guess I can see the casting as a sort of contrast to the villain from this movie (who was kinda forgettable, anyhow).

 

I was pretty amused with how much more easily I connected with Eddie Brock without his ever-lame and misplaced "YEW TOOK MAH JERB" motivation for hating Spider-Man hanging over his character.

Venom’s comic origin was perfectly fine for a villain. If the anger wasn’t misplaced, we’d be on his side, not Spider-Man’s.

Venom’s comic origin was perfectly fine for a villain. If the anger wasn’t misplaced, we’d be on his side, not Spider-Man’s.

 

It was his own dumbarsery that got him fired.  Spider-Man just caught the real Sin-Eater and didn't even know who Eddie Brock was.

 

On top of that, that wasn't even how the original Sin-Eater story was written.

 

So Eddie's origin is literally... a dumb retcon.  Michelinie even admitted he didn't put a lot of thought into it because Brock wasn't meant to last too long as the symbiote's host.  Then he got too popular and they were stuck with him.

 

At the very least, Michelinie's original idea for Venom as a woman who lost her husband and child had a little more weight to it, even if there is that same misplaced anger.
