Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

@  Gamma V : (18 May 2019 - 03:28 AM)

Haven't been here in a long time.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

@  Trpodeca : (17 May 2019 - 11:09 PM)

I voted. Boy there are a worrying amount of parties which sound like fascists.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 May 2019 - 04:14 PM)

So I guess I shouldn't try to tie in The Room.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2019 - 02:29 PM)

I was just talking cheesy in a dated filmmaking sense, not mind-bogglingly god-awful.

@  Sabrblade : (16 May 2019 - 11:49 AM)

Well, certainly The Last Airbender is worse at being a Superman movie.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 May 2019 - 11:31 AM)

Is that better or worse than The Last Airbender? I mean, they're both terrible, but....

@  RichardT1977 : (16 May 2019 - 09:28 AM)

And the worst Superman movie is "Dragonball: Evolution".

@  Paladin : (16 May 2019 - 08:01 AM)

the best Superman movie is "The Iron Giant." You cannot convince me otherwise.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 10:16 PM)

At least even in the first Christopher Reeve movie, when he caught Lois that first time, the background kept scrolling down for a second to indicate it wasn't a sudden stop.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 10:10 PM)

I guess you had to have been there. I did like the beginning a lot, though; the stuff on Krypton and in Smallville. The movie just got so cheesy once it got to Metropolis, though, it's kind of painful

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 May 2019 - 06:25 PM)

The performances, the cinematography, the significance of a comic book adaptation being treated like a real movie. Silly stuff like that. :)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 05:17 PM)

Yeah, I've never really understood what people loved so much about it. Other than the score, of course, which was one of Williams' finest

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

and it's not even the dumbest part in that movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 03:16 PM)

Flying Lois around was fine; it was all the Can You Read My Mind nonsense that ruined the scene

@  Sabrblade : (15 May 2019 - 12:08 PM)

The recent Shazam! movie had Billy bumbling his way through learning his powers. But all or most of it was genuinely funny.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:27 AM)

But yeah, in retrospect it makes me cringe the way he caught and carried the helicopter in his public debut in the first film...

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

(she wasn't in III long enough to be flown around)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

You mean the Donner movie, the Donner/Lester movie, and The Quest for Peace (for which I don't know the director)?

@  unluckiness : (15 May 2019 - 11:09 AM)

At least he didn't try to fly lois around like in the Donner movies.

@  Cybersnark : (15 May 2019 - 10:45 AM)

My favourite is still from the first episode of the 90s Superman animated series, where Clark initially tries to catch the falling plane by its tail... which snaps off in his hands because physics doesn't work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (15 May 2019 - 09:46 AM)

I think it'd be boring if a hero could use their powers perfectly right off the bat and not have any unforseen consequences (though I also don't keep up with a lot of superhero stuff, so not familiar with those scenes)

@  Dekafox : (15 May 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Overseas, Kamen Rider Gaim did something similar after Kouta(the main character) got his transformation belt. He tried to do a whole bunch of mundane things with it cause he thought it'd make him better at them and they all go horribly wrong.

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 08:59 AM)

superspeed causes enormous friction on fabric. the 1990 Flash had the same issue and it was mentioned in "The Incredibles" too...

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:45 AM)

Arrow didn't have one (though Oliver got hurt a lot in flashbacks), Supergirl already had her powers, LoT gang also already had their powers mostly and in Black Lightning discovering your powers seems to be more associated with emotional trauma than anything comedic

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:43 AM)

In the Arrowverse shows... I guess The Flash accidentally ran so fast he shredded his clothes? (totally not a chance to showcase Grant Gustin's "I'm not Glee kid anymore!" physique)

Yeah, Dru's the one I look at and go... huh? Also, maybe not a fan of this "Mistress" thing, because it sounds like she's replacing the Master, and I would much prefer the Master to remain in play.

Buffy going to BOOM! was a surprise indeed, since I thought Dark Horse was doing a decent job with the series.

 

I like the designs a lot and can't wait to see what BOOM! does with this series. Plus, they got Firefly too! Now give me an Angel comic. :)

Boom is on fire right now. They've always done good stuff, but I feel like they're levelling up.

 

Dark Horse losing these books is a HUGE shock though. I wonder how fans will take to a reboot after years of This Is Genuine TV Canon, Honest.

Well, there's not a lot to hold onto in the first issue, because it's... the first issue, but I enjoyed it a lot.

Spoiler


Some fun to be had. Bring on next month. There's a lot of appeal in a fresh, unencumbered Buffy universe.

The art is damn fan-frigging-tastic. Dan Mora is an absolute godsend to this book. I think he needs to work harder at evoking Anya, but he's got Buffy, Xander, Willow, and Giles absolutely nailed. Great stuff.

 

The story was somewhat choppy and disjointed, and it also seemed, I dunno, somewhat superficial? As someone online elsewhere said, it feels like its rushing, but not going anywhere important. I think they really need to work on the pacing, and some of the dialogue is a bit off as well. For example, Buffy definitely looks like Buffy, but doesn't quite sound like Buffy as yet. 

 

Still, it shows promise, and I'm a hard one to please when it comes to Buffy and Angel. I'll definitely read the next issue, and give this title at least 5-6 issues or so to find its footing.

Good first issue. Liked the reveal of who was writing the 'thought bubbles'. No Angel surprisingly, although that is okay since they had so many people to reintro. I'd guess its probably because Boom doesn't have the rights (yet). Oh well, I'm sure he'll show up sooner or later since he's such an important part of the universe.

That's what I figure: he'll show eventually, perhaps in "season" two.

Say what?!

https://www.pastemag...mic-just-8.html

This week, BOOM! Studios pulls its own vampiric Beyoncé move by revealing a surprise Angel series just eight days ahead of its release in comic shops—and exclusively in comic shops, as there will be no immediate digital distribution for two weeks. BOOM! pulled this off by shipping equal quantities of Angel #0 to match orders of Buffy the Vampire Slayer #4, which features Angel’s first appearance in the new continuity and leads directly into his solo series’ zero issue.
