He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 October 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Each part of a combiner is a complete toy in itself, so no, not really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (03 October 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

@  RichardT1977 : (03 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

Originally Galoob made Micro Machines, but Hasbro bought Galoob.

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 October 2019 - 09:49 AM)

Hasbro owns the IP, but licensed it out to WCT. Hasbro owns Tonka, but hasn't actually made a legit Tonka product in years. Basic Fun (IIRC) is taking that over next year from the existing licensee

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.

My dad used to collect issues of Shazam! so I'll have to go check this out. The trailer actually looks pretty good, I don't remember Shazam acting like a kid in the comics but I didn't read a ton of them and it's not a big problem for me. 

 

It depends on which version of the character (traditionally called "Captain Marvel," which I mention mostly because of the supreme irony that the Marvel Comics character with that name, which has caused trademarking trouble for the Shazam/Captain Marvel character for decades, just happens to be getting a live-action movie for the first time ever at almost the exact same moment as Shazam). In the Fawcett era, the Captain Marvel personality was fairly distinct from that of Billy Batson. I can't really speak for the pre-Crisis DC version, but post-Crisis, Captain Marvel's personality really was just Billy's, and although Billy (as Marvel) tried not to act like a kid, it would still come through in various ways.

I collected the one by Ordway and Krause in the 90s and the Captain is very respectful and decent. There were only a few times where he wasn't acting too good to be true. (Jealous of Freddie's athleticism and his family before Freddie was crippled and orphaned. Arm wrestled Superman just to see who was stronger).

The thing I recall from Billy was that he was POOR. Like, he attended parties to honor Captain Marvel just so that he could eat. He kept his boy reporter job to pay the bills during the day and moonlit as a dockworker in his stronger Captain form for more cash. He also had to stay under the radar so child services don't find out that he's living by himself. He had real civilian problems but weathered them like a champ.

I wasn't happy with Geoff Johns updating him into a mouthy, selfish kid of the 00's. I didn't read enough of it but he lost his invincible innocence in the effort to modernize his upbringing. (Like how Walk had a strip going with how Bruce probably watched the Pokemon movie if his parents got killed in the 90s instead of Zorro in the 50s or whichever).

I didn't read how Billy matured with sex awakening in Geoff's JSA (was he into Power Girl? Or Star Girl? Or Tornado the wind girl?) but that was pre 52, I think.

I'm cool with Levi so I'll see how it goes. Looks to be funny, even though we lost the Captain's squeaky clean image.

Warner apparently has enough confidence in this film to start holding critic screenings a month early.

 

and the initial reviews are pretty positive.

Based on the action figure line, I'm thinking there's going to be at least one scene where Billy distributes the power among his siblings.

I just saw it as well, and I liked it way more than the other Captain Marvel film.

Of course, I know next to nothing about the Captain Marvel/Shazam universe so having no preconceived notions definitely helped.

 

The film doesn't take itself too serious, which it shouldn't because even for a super hero property, the premise is pretty silly.  They managed to turn said silly premise into a really enjoyable 2+ hours.

 

Pros:

Spoiler

 

Cons:

Spoiler

 

Totally worth seeing, and this is coming from someone who has skipped every DCCU film since BvS (oh, and caught Justice League on a long flight and half-watched it).

 

I would describe it as DC's PG-13 Deadpool character.

 

EDIT:  Shit sorry - used "Spoilers" in the tag instead of "Spoiler."
