Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

The reason is even worse. :(

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

Well it's a bit too heavy on Seth Rogan and Kato kicks all kinds of butt. Really the best things in the movie is the car and Kato. I could really lose Rogan and be happy with it.

Kato fails. Considering they're following the role in Bruce Lee's footsteps, a cantopop "star" that relies on CGI and wires was easily the worst direction to go in.

im confused. why didn't Kevin Smith direct this? he's been wanting to do it for years. and yes I know I at one time he was going to do it but then dropped out. But he's worked with Seth before in Zack and Miri make a porno. I think this a missed opportunity for both.

However, its decent.

Which is the point of the Green Hornet. You could lose Hornet and just focus on Kato and it'd be awesome. It's a product of the times really.

If you're going to criticize in a jerkish way, you should get it right. Jay Chou is from Taiwan and is a very influential singer/songwriter, and as far as I know, writes and sings mostly in Mandarin and not Cantonese (Cantopop meaning basically Hong Kong)--you know, since he's Taiwanese. He's not known as an actor and he's made a few duds in the process (Kung Fu Dunk...ouch), but that doesn't put his "star" status in any kind of question. It's pretty immature to just poo-poo something simply because we can't get the original ever again. In the realm of Bruce Lee remakes, both Jet Li and Donnie Yen have turned in fine interpretations of Chen Zhen in Fist of Legend and New Fist of Fury (Yen also just did Return of Chen Zhen last year), respectively, without tarnishing anything. Give Jay Chou a chance.

I haven't seen it, but CGI and wires doesn't necessarily mean Kato won't be cool. How many recent great kung fu movies HAVEN'T used CGI and wires, for that matter?

Well, that's the thing. He dropped out precisely because he didn't want to direct; he doubted his ability to. So his script sat in a drawer. Then Rogen turned in a script, and during the search for a director Smith was probably never even a consideration.

How do you figure? Other than Bruce Lee being the most memorable part of the TV show (and for stuff he did after the show, for that matter), Kato has never really dominated the franchise.

And the trailers made it look like a self-parody, anyway.

If you're going to correct someone at least do it correctly.

Seth Rogen

PS - The movie was horrible. You can tell that Gondry hated his time on set and that Rogen had way too much creative power over the direction the movie took.

It's a pretty fun movie. It could have been a great movie if Seth Rogen wasn't in it. He just quite franky sucks. Not as bad as Will Ferrell or David Spade (Just go away. Both of you. Go away. PLEASE!), but still pretty low on to good actors list.

I did like that it was about an incompetent hero. Car was cool. Liked the door guns.

P.S. - Green Hornet was a radio show first, so why is it in the comic section? I'm not sure if there's even is a comic...
