@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2019 - 12:03 PM)

I had no idea the beeb was renting out the dr.who writting staff to hollywood.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 11:50 AM)

A poodle, some clouds, and a giant drop of water

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 May 2019 - 05:53 AM)

Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"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

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

@  Cybersnark : (20 May 2019 - 08:52 AM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  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)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 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?

The Wrap is reporting that "Blacklist" writer Jac Schaeffer is penning a script for a potential Black Widow movie. Given Marvel's schedule, the earliest we'd see it is 2020.

Minor point of note: She's not a writer for the TV show "The Blacklist," as your post might imply (and as the article doesn't really clarify), but rather one of her screenplays was part of the 2014 "Black List" of well-regarded unproduced scripts.

Basically, means she's probably a decent writer. Even though she wrote that pre-Coco Frozen "short" that everyone hated.

so if they're finally talking about this now, that almost certainly means they're gonna kill ScarJo off in "Infinity War" so they can recast with someone cheaper right?

Man, I totally whiffed it on that one. Thanks for calling me out on that.

In other news, in my excitement I missed that the article was written by Umberto Gonzales, who made his fame with phony superhero rumors when he worked at Latino Review. Thankfully, Variety has heard the same thing from their own sources, so that's good. They make a point of mentioning that the film hasn't been greenlit yet, which I take means it could wind up not happening at all.

Would people be interested in a Black Widow movie that doesn't star her?

I know at this point, I feel it's kind of too little too late. :/

Like the character a lot, just think they should have done it by now.

I'll be honest, this sounds like the first Marvel movie I would have zero interest in. I just find Black Widow deadly dull honestly.

She's the "sexy spy with a dark past but a heart of gold trope" and while that makes her kinda unique in the comics it's a dime a dozen in movies and not a trope or a film-type I have any interest in at all.

-ZacWilliam, I mean there are ways they could make her more interesting to me, mainly by tying in characters I like (send her after Dr Doom, team her with Banner) but on her own in the type of movie that her character fits, really not there for that.

Eh, how many movies with a "sexy spy with a dark past but a heart of gold" as the main character have been released in the last 10 years? Like, MAYBE one a year?

Meanwhile we have like 6-10 superhero movies coming out a year and that's not a problem.

Also, Atomic Blonde was fantastic and if they could do that, but with crazy superhero stuff, I'd be down.

Eeyup. I don't like ScarJo and I think Black Widow is the dullest character in the MCU. I'm pretty sure the only reason she was in Avengers was that she was the only female character that could be shoehorned into Iron Man 2.

The irony here being I've been hyped for a Black Widow solo film since her "recruitment" scene in the first Avengers. She stands the traditional spy tropes on their head a little bit, allowing her to both be the damsel in distress and the cool operator always in control of a situation.

Scar Jo has already done too many movies too close to this since she first portrayed Black Widow.

I'm not outright against this, but I will need convincing to get on board.

Count me as cautiously optimistic this movie does well. Scarlett Johannson is a damn good actress, but I fear if things go wrong, this could end up like Solo did - people complaining that it wasn't necessary despite being a decent film.

I'v always found Black Widow super dull as a character. She's generic Russian sexy super spy #2343. She's fine as a supporting character but in her own she's just a generic action movie cliche.

A Black Widow film might be the first Marvel film I purposely skip. And I love Marvel films.

-ZacWilliam, unless they give her a superhero co-star who's fun and/or a trailer that is Thor: Ragnarok level kick ass I can't imagine caring.

put hawkeye in it too. they seem to work well together, and theyve got the history. i just dont think widow by herself would be interesting enough. give her someone to work off of and it might work

 

ill still it regardless...

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.
