I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

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.

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...
