yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Yeah, Mysterio's entire deal is that he's always a fake who does fakey things with suped-up movie FX. To the point where if something seems fakey in a Spider-man comic you got like a 90% likelihood on guessing Mysterio will show up shortly.

-ZacWilliam, Mysterio is so much about fake stuff that I'm half expecting Nick Fury to be completely fake just cause he's near him.

I hope that MJ figuring out the secret isn't a fake out. And I also hope she doesn't become the damsel in distress because Peter told Mysterio about her.

I find it a little odd to see Happy getting into hijinks in Europe. After that bittersweet cheeseburgers line in Endgame, I figure he'd be staying close to help raise Morgan. (How many of Tony's other friends could or would?)

Assuming that is Happy. One of the fun things about Mysterio being in this film is literally everything after "You do not ghost Nick Fury!" could be elaborate illusions.

Oh I'm not actually talking about Mysterio not being a fakey fake fake, no.  I'm talking about how they're gonna move forward from Endgame that is.

 

Ironbite-I fully expect the 2nd act twist to revel that Mysterio is exactly the dumb ass in a fish bowel that he is.

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.

 

My curiosity along these lines is piqued even more with this trailer. Mysterio's set himself up with Fury. Fury's not exactly going to be amused by Beck's antics when everything comes to head.

 

....Endgame spoilers....

Right? Infinity War was supposed to be my getting off point. Then I had to see Endgame. Now, as a lifelong fan of Mysterio and having seen Endgame...I gotta watch FFH.

 

MCU movies are like Oreos. You just can't stop going in for "just one more".

The instinctive reaction to hearing Mysterio talk about a multiverse is that he's lying, because Mysterio, but a part of me wonders if this is also Sony's way of connecting MCU Spidey with their non-MCU projects. "That's right, Tom Holland's Spider-Man and Venom and Morbius and animated Miles Morales all 'count'!"

 

Hey, maybe MCU Spidey, with his large support group of friends and confidants who know his identity and his wardrobe of super suits and lack of J. Jonah Jameson and now a butler with a jet eventually becomes the super-together blonde Peter from Spider-Verse.

I'm sure the core Avengers care for Morgan a lot, but I singled out Happy because he's the only one who's not going to miss her piano recitals because the Living Laser broke out of prison.  Although you bring up a good point, I never thought about what Old Steve would be doing next.

but a part of me wonders if this is also Sony's way of connecting MCU Spidey with their non-MCU projects. 

 

Aren't these films creatively under Marvel's control, though? Sony profits from them under the deal they made with Marvel, sure, but I thought part of that deal was that Marvel has total control over the writing. If that's the case, I'd think introducing the idea of a Multiverse might lead us eventually into the MCU version of the Secret Wars rather than being an attempt to tie in Sony's other Spider-Man works to the MCU (which I could see Marvel considering for Into the Spider-Verse, but probably not Venom).
