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.

@  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.

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)

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

Saw it. It's fun! But it gave me pause when they kept saying the s-word over and over. I know it's already ok to say it here ($#!+) but, well, I guess I'm old fashioned. Would that they said crud or crap.

I'm only going with the Jerry Ordway Power of Shazam series since that's what I collected. I haven't followed New52 and didn't even know about Shazam Rebirth until today.

Btw, the deadly sins weren't identified.

Wrath - gorilla like
Greed - extra arms
Glutton - obvy
Envy - smaller
Lust - ... I guess the long tongue
Pride - ... I guess the winged one?
Sloth - ... ?

She should have been white, darn it.

Edit - folks in cosplay at my screening



Also, since I didn't read this Shazam Rebirth. Gay?

I don't know much about this movie, but I do know Asher Angel who plays Jonah Beck on Andi Mack is playing Billy... the Kid? Anyways, in the latest episode of Andi Mack he and his friends have the following conversation whilst discussing their school's Costume Day.

 

 

Jonah: I've got my costume.

Cyrus: What is it?

Jonah: Average kid before he finds out he's a superhero.

 

I know Andi Mack is Disney and Shazam! is WB/DC but there's no way that line just happened.


All that really matters is we could be friends

So I cant be the only one who saw this?!

As expected it is a nice lighthearted change of pace for the DC movies. Though a few scenes would prevent me from recommending it as a family friendly movie. But overall its a good move.

Loved it. Talking to my wife, it reminded me a bit of an 80's era film in that I was surprised by some of the SFx being as "scary" as they were? Like I imagine there may be some nightmares for the littler ones. Shirt-bombs aside, I think that side of it really earned the film its PG-13 rating.

 

So is Djimon Hounsou the first actor to have not insignificant roles in both DC and Marvel at the same time (and even more so - in two films that technically have the same-named title character)? We've obviously had plenty that started in one and went to the other, but it seems like a first.

 

Spoiler

 

Anyway, I really can't make any complaints about the movie. Usually the day after, even if I enjoyed the film, my brain can't help but find little nitpicks - but I got nothin'.

I'd say "it was so much better than the other Captain Marvel that it's not funny," but it was funny as hell.

I loved it, so did the audience, so did my 1940s fanboy dad. Given the semi-obscurity of the character I was surprised by how many of the concepts they introduced correctly. All of the principal actors SOLD a goofy, cheesy idea. Particularly Mark Strong as Sivana, a very good mix of funny and scary.

And yeah, speaking of scary / gross, some unexpected bits in there for a kids movie. Kind of like Temple of Doom.

One continuity error:

There was a lot of stuff like that toward the end. Maybe there were some bigger edits. There's also the mystery of the actor credits for Mrs. Sivana and Sivana's twin sisters.

There's also everyone but Mary getting a hero moment at the end, which has to be a weird editing decision. That's the only way I can explain it.

In the comics Mary was an equal to Shazam just with female patrons. The other family members all had the same powers too just with one trait more accentuated.

I read the Geoff Johns Gary Frank New52 compilation (ended same as the first extra scene) and I dunno if I would have liked the more colorful and human ish deadly sins Vs the gargoyles.

I watched it for a third time and listed down the superhero names thrown out.

Thundercrack
Mister Philadelphia
Power Boy
Captain Sparklefingers
Zap-tain America
Sir Zaps a Lot
Red Cyclone
Maximum Voltage
Human Powerstorm
Frequency Flinger

I must have missed a lot more during the YouTube video. I think Thundercrack was written with the full ThundercrackER in the YouTube titles. Can someone confirm?

Counted 5 instances of $#!+ . Pedro said crud so they could have just gone with that.

Maybe he wasn't into the music?

I read the Geoff John's and Gary Frank issues plus the first four issues of the new series and I didn't see any indicators.

If it's a new movie thing, maybe the comics will follow suit?

Which comics? Golden Age? New 52? Because I know for a fact that wasn't true in the post-Crisis era.

Fawcett and Pre -1985..     then it was the same as Shazam for a while, until she got Black Adam's powers and used Isis's set of female patrons.  Then Flashpoint happened and I didnt read new 52/rebirth so I don't know about those..

In Ordway's Power of Shazam series, Billy, Mary and Freddie shared the same power pool. If Billy was 'Captain Marvel', he was on par with Superman with strength. But if Mary and Freddie powered up, his strength gets halved or goes to thirds.

I don't think it's the same with the new family.

Downside of building a franchise around child actors- they need to immediately get to work on the next entry before everyone starts to age out of the project.
