It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

Wow, honestly wasn't expecting a trailer unto like after Endgame.

 

And yeah I know that time table is kinda unreasonable but still wasn't expecting one.

 

 

-ZacWilliam, it looks fun. It's neat to see a live action Mysterio. I hope too much of the plot doesn't hinge on the VERY obvious twist of whats "really" going on with him and the monsters.

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.

Looks good, everything I liked about the first movie's tone is back.  Probably the movie I'm looking forward to most this year after Endgame.

 

Mysterio actually looks badass, that's pretty much a feat in itself.

 

I always cringe when I see someone get tranqued in movies, I worry that one day, somebody's going to fall on the dart and get it driven into their neck :p

 

I have one tiny quibble, and this is a little more about how Spider-Man is handled across media in general: I don't like how he's becoming a hero who's about the suit, and getting upgrades to win the day.  I'll reserve judgment for how the stealth suit is used in this film, but I've been seeing the trend in the comics and video games, and it feels wrong.  (And yes, I get the need to sell toys, and I'm already planning to snap up the Marvel Legends for this film.)

 

That all said, I think the red-and-black suit looks sharp.  Arguably the "original" colors for Spider-Man, I wouldn't mind if this became the default MCU suit.

Let's be real, "collecting" anything is just part of the nerd mentality.  For all his appeal, deep down, Tony Stark is just a technology nerd who likes to build powered exo suits.

Others have pointed it out, but I think it's important to remember who the trailer properly introduced and the context in which he's being introduced.

 

 

As for the Suit Parade...I'd like to point out that Peter left his suit at home and then Fury tapped him. Obviously Fury's supplying the suit/s. Yes, it's a means to sell more merchandise but it's also a logical means by which to get Peter into a new suit.

 

Happy hitting on May was...odd.

 

That theme chord at the end. I'm pumped.

Well, I expect it's a "teaser" trailer because most of that stuff is probably in the first half hour or so, before "Iron Man and Thor rolled into one" does his heel turn.

Watched the trailer, looks ok but I'm not super exicited for this, was surprised by Fury's appearance but exactly why is he trying to recruit Spiderman, seems kind of out of character, he is a kid after all and surely there are better heroes worth recuriting or is Fury trying to build another set of Avengers to replace the ones who are going to die in End game?

I must admit, when Fury appeared, my mind quickly went from "Neat, I wasn't expecting that!" to "Ah, Christ, I hope Peter's not just changing one father figure for another." His support system in these movies is wider than I like to begin with.

 

 

Mysterio, Hydroman, and Sandman?

 

And Molten Man, from what I understand.

Of course, given who we're dealing with here, I'm assuming these "Elemental Men" are just Mysterio's "Omnidroids", rather than the real deal.

 

There were rumours that Keaton was going to return in this film in some capacity, though.

I'm curious as to Mysterio's end goal here. Setting himself up to be a hero through illusion is a means in and of itself, but the MCU is established enough that he has to realize he's screwed the minute a real threat appears.

I really don't like how comfortably middle class MCU Peter is. I was willing to ignore it last time because they implied the school was for smarter kids but a trans Europe trip isn't cheap.

Also 'MJ' just feels like they dreamt up a woke OC and slapped a legacy name on her despite little to no connection with Mary Jane, partly because they already used up Spidey iconography in 2 cancelled series.

Actually, it's still plausible.  My last job was at Cottey College, a small private women's college.  It's HEAVILY supported in terms of scholarships, having been founded by the Philanthropic Educational Organization, a group dedicated to providing educational opportunities to young women.  The average family income of the students there is actually lower than for most state colleges.  They have a two week European trip as part of the curriculum every spring, and students whose families can't afford it have their way paid with grants.  It's not implausible that Peter's school has a similar grant situation (especially if Tony Stark has started throwing money at it!), which is why the whole class gets to go even though many of them are of modest means.
