Scarecrow plays the LONG game fighting Batman.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:17 PM)

I had to "delete" the download, and now the video is working correctly (as a streaming view).

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 January 2021 - 09:16 PM)

Strangest error? I downloaded the rental for Batman: Soul of the Dragon, and when I went to play it, it started an episode of Scarecrow And Mrs King. That show IS apparently part of my library (probably snagged it when Apple offered premiere episode for free), but I don't recall ever claiming it....

death comes for us all. what difference does it make how?

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 January 2021 - 06:26 PM)

It's only murder and that is all, why should I feel the way I do...

@  Rufus : (25 January 2021 - 01:37 PM)

It's only murder if it comes from the Murder region of France, otherwise it's just suspiciously deceased.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 January 2021 - 09:17 AM)

It's only murder if they find the body, otherwise it's just a missing persons case.

There was a five season anime with wearing relics as the premise.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 January 2021 - 01:16 PM)

You don't wear relics, you enshrine them.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 06:23 PM)

Wrong holey... and probably the wrong way to dress too.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2021 - 06:09 PM)

If your underwear is old and holy, it is considered a relic and should be protected with your life.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 02:04 PM)

That's the argument we keep making: but I still need to wait till feb 8th minimum to replace my holey underwear.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:57 PM)

Personally I'm glad Ontario wasn't so misguided as to try to define what is or isn't "essential" for big box stores like Walmart to sell. If someone is stuck at home literally for weeks and unable to go out, who's to say a new TV or game console isn't essential (if only for one's sanity) if theirs breaks down?

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:55 PM)

Although fortunately, Ontario's daily cases and positivity rate has been on a steady decline for the past week or so; if they can get the vaccinations back on track, there is some hope.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:53 PM)

And as far as Canada's lockdowns go, I'm guessing none of them will end until late March, or perhaps the beginning of April. What small businesses that might be left at that point will be allowed to open for their going out of business sales.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:52 PM)

Unfortunately the CEO of Target Canada made more money by running the company into the ground than he ever would have had he made it a success, so there was zero incentive to succeed.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 January 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Target made some serious mistakes when they came into Canada. They focused on opening like 150+ stores within a 2 year timeframe and had no online infrastructure whatsoever; their website literally only contained legal blurbs and a store locator... lacking even the ability to see what they sold in stores, or if it was in stock and, if so, where. They should have started with 1/3 the number of stores with a full online experience including online shopping and inventory checking

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:35 PM)

See; quebec is under a new lockdown, have been since the 26th. It's supposed to end the 8th of february, but probably won't. Stores are only supposed to sell necessities (in deference to the stores which are closed.), but the quebec government made no effort define what counts as a "necessity", only punished them for getting it wrong. So I can buy all the candy I want, but not underwear, boots, winterwear, small appliances. Hell, my brother had to explain why he wanted a FUSE when he needed to fix his stove shortly before new years.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 12:31 PM)

Targets don't exist in canada anymore. They lasted like 3 years before abandoning the market. But even if they WERE still here: they would be under the same poorly defined restrictions as walmart.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

Target's better-

@  wonko the sane? : (22 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

HA! my walmarts can't even sell underwear. There's no clearances going on up here.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 January 2021 - 11:31 PM)

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

I have a best friend that, if he died, Id be a complete and utter wreck. Hes effectively a brother to me, and if one of us had to jump off a cliff to save the universe, wed probably fight to equally save the others family like hawkeye and Natasha.

Ill fight for him and his family, equally as much as my own. Yes. Theres love within friendships.

In other words, not all love is romantic or sexual. Platonic love is a very real and, in many people's cases, very deep thing.

 

Disney's Brother Bear and Frozen were even all about that kind of love.

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.

Thing is, if we'd been shown that Hawkeye and Widow had a relationship truly that deep at some point (maybe if there's bee a movie showing them working together as SHIELD agents?), then it wouldn't seem forced to me.

If you took the Hawkeye and Black Widow from Avengers:EMH cartoon, and put them in that situation, I could buy it much more easily.

 

Part of the problem is that Renner seems to be a flat wooden actor who can do action stunts but seems to be as emotionally withdrawn as Christian Bale (when Bale isn't being a spoiled brat screaming as a member of the production crew).

Again, they've had moments of genuine affection and friendship since the first Avengers film, when Natasha went out of her way to break Clint free of the brainwashing instead of just straight up killing him. I'm really not sure what exactly you want to make the relationship seem real to you when it's been one of the most consistent of the MCU.

 

Seriously, Clint and Natasha have more screen time together than Nat and Bruce, but nobody bats an eye that those two became an item off screen.

Pretty much, yeah.

 

Thanos got it into his head that halving the population of Titan would solve it's problems. Regardless of whether or not it would've worked, they didn't do it, and everyone died...save him. And thus he made the logical leap that he was right. So he's got it locked in his head that doing the same thing on a grander scale will solve everything. He has to be right, because if another alternative works...well, we saw him taking an alternate route in Endgame, didn't we?

 

I'm glad he's dust now. Dude was a jerk.

The "double the resources" thing doesn't really work though if you apply some thought to it.  The logistics of it seem too complicated for even the Mind Stone to manage.

 

Like, where do these resources go?  Will the planets suddenly be overrun with natural resources like flora and fauna heedless of the people inhabiting those places?  Or suppose they get put in a neutral place.  Is there any guarantee these resources will be distributed fairly among the civilisations that need them?  Not everyone's needs are the same.

 

And it simply wouldn't be in character for Thanos.  He doesn't want to rule or manage anything.  Would his army be in charge of making sure everyone gets what aid they need?

 

Plus, he's a cynical, sociopathic butthole.  OF COURSE he's gonna wipe people out.  It's the fastest, cleanest, easiest way he can see.  He thinks doing it randomly is fair and just, which is what, Two-Face Logic?  And Two-Face is SUCH a stable individual...

I think it is partly an inertia thing.  Thanos always had an idea that he would gather up all the Infinity Stones and fix things in one snap, but he didn't wait for that to happen.  He was going planet to planet doing his plan manually and he had no means to double the resources just by showing up with some space whales.  By the time he got the stones, he was pretty set in that idea.

this time last year i was pulling my hair out in anticipation in seeing this. the culmination of an 11 year, 22 movie experiment that we had never seen the likes of (though always wanted to), or if it would even WORK. and try as they might, no one else has been able to duplicate it. we laughed, we cried, we even said "wtf?" a few times, but we all had a good time and enjoyed the ride

 

this scene still gives me goosebumps after all these years. the first time theyre all together in costume

 

avengers1.jpg

 

then of course theres this

 

ca.jpg

 

while thats an awesome scene, its nothing without one of the loudest pops from an audience ive ever heard (this isnt from my theater, though its damn near the same). and just because i waited 7 years to hear it, but it was worth it (found a vid with both scenes combined with a reaction)

 

 

whether the mcu goes up or down in the future, this was a fantastic experience and one im glad i was able to take part in

If all this had happened a year ago, it would have indefinitely postponed Endgame. It would have been pushed to November but then not opened anyway because nothing got better (my prediction for Black Widow). Sometime like 9 months after scheduled release, they'd have put it OnDemand. No audience reactions. All the "abandoned society" scenes totally unbearable.

Good timing, huh?
