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)

@  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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 November 2019 - 12:01 AM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  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.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 08:35 PM)

But that's not you doing something, that's something being done to you.

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:28 PM)

Unless a meteor crashes down on your bed while you're in it.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 07:08 PM)

I've been trying for the last few hours to find an argument to counter this... and I can't do it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 November 2019 - 03:32 PM)

The most dangerous thing you can do is get out of bed in the morning. Everything else that happens is a consequence of that one terrible, terrible decision.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Driving, by itself, is dangerous. Anything done to compromise the concentration of the pilot just makes things worse.

@  Benbot : (25 November 2019 - 12:46 PM)

Actually, I think you could make a reasonable argument for saying driving with glasses is dangerous. That is, more dangerous than driving with contacts or perfect vision. You have poor peripheral vision with glasses.

'Course, at this point, we now have four different hero groups: the Team, the Outsiders, the Justice League, and whatever Batman's posse is called in this show (they've been working their own agenda after Bats quit the League).

 

In 3x08 Wonder Woman refers to six hero teams in parallel operation. If I count correctly: planetside Justice League, spaceborne Justice League, Miss Martian's Team, Batman's adults, Robin's youths, and Nightwing's squad.

 

Beast Boy declared the inception of the Outsiders in 3x16 / 3x17, so I guess they constitute a seventh team.

yeah, there isn't any creative incentive to not do a cliffhanger ending if you know there's going to be a next season... or if you know there isn't going to be a next season...

 

leave a show with a cliffhanger in today's market... there's a good chance another cable network I mean streaming site, will buy you and give you another season after fans demand it

I'm late to the party and only on ep 15.

Stuff I want to say would be

While I like the Teen Titans Go voice actor (aka Michelangelo, hehe), I prefer the season 2 voice. He was more distinct and refreshing.

Did they try to go for a transgender thing with Halo saying she might be he or it or whatever? I get skeeved when I see some of the romantic parts (her and Brion, hints of Tigress and Will Harper. I do know Aqualad will get someone though).

I do hope the ending credits mean something soon.

I'm so happy the animation got better in the second half.

Jason Todd? the dead Robin that Beast Boy saw in the goggles? Was he active and died between S1 and S2?

Loved that Icicle Jr remembered Superboy and congratulated him on getting engaged, haha

For all intents and purposes, Halo is treated as female in every scene of the season outside of that one.

 

They probably did it since her life originating from a Mother Box (in other words, a machine lifeform rather than an organic one) makes her an unique being in and of herself.

I just saw the ep (18 where they fight Klarion) and they had Halo kissing that rebel girl.

The ep annoyed me a bit because they kept referring to a funeral as the reason why Impulse Bart and Jaime weren't around. I had to look up online to find out that Joan Garrick died (I did remember wondering why that hospital scene was there in the previous ep) but they didn't even mention it.

It doesn't explain Jaime being absent though. And Static said the name Mrs Bennet, and googling said Dan Bennet was Blue Beetle but it still what his deal was. Death anniversary?

this show has it's own lore, and lore it inherited from the larger DC continuity (/ies) in general. I won't suggest a research deep dive into things you're having questions about Fero, but you could do that if you wanted to... it's just going to be a lot of effort for what essentially amounts to 

 

"a thing that happens in this show's continuity is similar to events that transpired in the comics in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's 90's 00's,10's and currently are happening in DC comics... or are entirely made up just for this show."

 

as for the funeral, sometimes if somebody your friends with goes to a funeral, you go with them for support even if you didn't know the person who died... 

 

*shrug* I don't even remember that part to be honest

Well, the funeral was a side thing that just niggled with me cuz I was waiting for a clear explanation that didn't come.

I did finish the series though. I wasn't too into this version of the Anti-Life Equation, which is just slavery again. Them fighting the mind controlled League is a retread of the Starro tech used in the S1 finale.

Any why was Elongated Man affected adversely, like the human Lanterns? Granny said metahumans are fine but non metas react negatively. I don't know Elongated Man's origins but his stretching ability must have affected his DNA so he should be considered meta.

Plus there's alien DNA of Superman and Hawkwoman; is their baseline DNA considered meta by human standards to fit Granny's field?

Cyborg coming in at the last minute was just a lucky break. If Beast Boy's team didn't go on that mission, if Victor didn't go to the portal, the universe would have been screwed. Very chancy for everyone.

On the finale, Brion must have been pushed by that psychic advisor to murder Bedlam. So when the truth comes out, he'd be absolved of guilt. Seriously though, M'gann should have sensed it.

Gay Aqualad was kinda meh since he was almost always stiff and had a no-expression personality. One of the only times I remember him having the spark of a personality was at S2 when he went 'you dare lecture something me, after you let Tula die?!' (I get shivers at his VA's delivery) but then it turns out he was just faking all that time.

I mean not all gay men are ... flamboyant. It has never been in his character to be 'the life of the party' or anything like that.  So him staying this way has never really bothered me, its just who he is... a stoic dude who does his job and keeps his own council. 

 

I doubt very much that Brion was coursed into doing it... to me it played like he just needed somebody -anybody to give him a justification. He wanted to do it. So he did it.

 

yeah, sometimes it really is just dumb luck that keeps evil at bay.  its one of the ways you can have the good guys win all the time and still keep the bad guys a viable threat next issue.

 

as for Elongated man.. yeah he's a Meta... Meta basically means "anyone with super powers"  .. it's not like 'Mutants' over in marval... 

 

in the comics he got his powers by drinking a rare fruit extract from Tibet... in the flash tv show it was the particle accelerator (like it always is) lol 

 

they might have just shown him getting effected by it more because it's easy visualization to show the stretchy guy is in pain by having him get all limp and floppy...

Oh, comic Aqualad was revealed as gay before YJ Aqualad, right? (I'm never calling Kaldur as Aquaman!)

The telepathic advisor guy did say he was push people to do their dark impulses so that's what he did with Brion. But I'd actually be happier if Psimon (aka Baby, hahaha) would have been the new member of the Light.

It's a poor showing to have Elongated Man be melty since they're going out of the way to say that 'normals' were affected adversely, since the melty look is so metagene looking. Guy, Hal and John weren't even writhing or whatever.

Anyhow, I'm glad Will and Artemis are out of the way so Will can find someone else, please. Can't wait for the Legion!

Bendis is reviving Legion and, urgh, I do hope it does well but he leaves and someone better continues it.
