If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

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.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

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.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

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

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

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

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)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 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.

With the rumor coming up that Matthew McConaughey could be under
consideration for the Captain America film, I was wondering how you
guys would cast the movies... It's hard for me to think of guys that are
shaped the way you'd want Cap and Thor to be shaped, who also have
the blonde hair and blue eyed look. I know that those things can be
taken care of by hair and makeup, but who would you cast?
Yep.

Well I can't find any pics of him and he's probably too old now, but Billy Smith, who played Thunder on the original American Gladiators was pretty much Thor incarnate.

Yeah, but it's going to be hard getting people into the seats by billing the
movie with "BILLY SMITH from the AMERICAN GLADIATORS!" That's the
biggest problem. There's tons to people who look like they could play both
Captain America and Thor, but not many NAMES, I mean, real stars, who
would be able to look like Cap and Thor...
Yep.

Then they might as well get The Rock to play Thor then.

But realistically, like you said, very few people fit the bill, even fewer that are stars.

Giving someone blonde hair and blue eyes is exactly the toughest thing to do any more. (Hair dye and colour contacts)

I think the key is finding good actors, regardless of what they look like.

Matthew McConaughey maybe look(somewhat) like Cap, but he's a horrific actor. (Also, Cap is not Southern. No no no no no no no no no no no no no no no)

Thor's a much harder cast than Cap is and I have no idea what the possibilities even are. Thor'll have to be a lot slimmer on screen than he is in the books.

I'd throw Thomas Jane and Aaron Eckhart out there, but they're already kind of
taken, although I'd love to have Thomas Jane as Captain America. From what I
could tell of my time on the Punisher Set (3 WHOLE DAYS) he really loved what
he was doing and wanted to make an amazing movie no matter what. But really
I'd love to see either of their chins in the Captian America cowl...

After seeing Karl Urban in LotR and Pathfinder I think he could pull of a more
svelte Thor. Maybe Dominic Purcell for a much hardier one, and then just to
round it would with three, maybe Josh Holloway (Sawyer from LOST).
Yep.

A ripped josh holloway(with someone properly shaving him) would be pretty good as Thor, actually.

I'd buy it.

I must agree. Coloring can be tailored to fit the part, talent can't.

I agree 100%, but who would fit both is what I'd like to know. If it comes down to
it I'm 100% in the "Bleach his hair and put Contacts In" camp. I want someone like
Downey who is an absolutely inspired choice for these two characters. It just so
happens that Downey is the spitting image of Stark in my mind, so everything was
perfect there...
Yep.

Too bad he's probably too old now, or you could just cast Dolph "I will break you" Lundgren as Thor. Just toss a wig and some armor on Ivan Drago and he's good to go.

Cap would also need to have a presence, be inspiring, as that's fundamentally important to the character.

Something Mcconaughey could never, ever, ever pull off.

Oddly I think that for Cap I would like to see Christian Bale

and one of the best people that I could think of for Thor is Viggo Mortensen.

I just think that Bale could do a heck of a job pulling of the all american soldier.

And I think that Viggo has the right rugged looks and decent enough acting skills to pull of thor with the right makeup.

Channing Tatum would make a good Steve/Cap (he's playing Duke in G.I. Joe)

and despite his pro wrestling past... Bill Goldberg is a pretty good actor and could pull off Thor. (or maybe even Odin)

I don't know anything about Captain America, other than what the character looks like, and the first thing that came to mind was Thomas Jane. Like you said, he loved what he was doing with The Punisher, and because he didn't like how they were treating the character, he left the sequel. That's what you want out of the star for these kind of films, someone who is willing to take it seriously.

That has been rumored on and off, but the last rumor I heard almost a year ago was that they were looking at Journeyman's Kevin McKidd.
