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)

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.

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

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)

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 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.

I got Mega Man #8 and, wow, I was pretty happy with it! Great issue with Mega Man dealing with the first bot (brutal!) and the psychoness of the next encounter. I didn't like what happened to Mega Man in the first arc but, here, it was pretty awesome for some reason. It's soooo evil yet also so bad ass icon-hotrod.gif

Will get into detail next time. I caught up with Sonic Universe too and now I get the sadness of Nicole. Bravo to Tracy's writing!

Ok, I juuust read Sonic the Hedgehog #234.

What... the... HELL?!?! Nobody takes out the humor relief character. It's his fault for being so serious lately. Damn though. Where did that come from?

Ok, Silver's role is suddenly extremely vital now. He HAS to change the past, not the present. This is, of course, if it's a confirmed fatality. If it IS, then Silver has to work fast.

Sally's been tampered with already (its an upgrade but still sorta like robot rape?) so what happens to her when she gets de-roboticized? Naugus was able to restore Bunnie, even with her modifications so his crystal spell can still work.

I thought Naugus could be redeemed but, well, he did want Elias to be eliminated. Hmm.

Man, if Flynn ever works in DC or Marvel, he's going to do great. BTW, haven't seen Scrambled (or Universe 36) but, aaaaaaw, Tracy's no longer doing Universe issues? That was a long run on his part but, oh well. I was hoping for a record number of 100 straight Tracy issues icon-hotrod.gif

Mega Man #11 - Ugh, I should really find time to properly compose comments to Flynn. Really loving the new issues. It bites that the last four Robot Masters had to be crammed in one issue when there were two Robot Masters per issue previously. Air Man should have been taken out by the leaf shield being sucked into his intake; I felt that was a missed opportunity. Metal Man put up a GREAT fight so it's a shame it was cut short. Flash Man, wow. It was only a few panels BUT they were part of his stage! Even sneaking around!!! His stage DID have alternate paths! Quick Man was, well, too quick. He shouldn't have died with a smile on his face. LOVED the ending scene! It's about TIME!

So... much... HAIR!!! LMAO!

BTW, I love how Flynn shows that Mega Man keeps using leaf shield. Sure it's not the usual weapon to beat the Robot Masters but it shows that even partially virused Mega Man is prone to being on the defensive. He used it on Bubble, Heat, Crash, Air (normal). Works for Mega Man as he really doesn't want to fight anyhow.



Sonic the Hedgehog #235. Heeeeeey, is that Antoine's The Journal notebook? I think it was in one of the Sonic Super Specials where it was drawn by Dave Manak where he goes under Robotropolis to search for ... something. Maybe the kudzu plant thingy. He uses a Power Ring which, as he explains, enchances a person's natural talent so he was able to slice up a droid.

I can't remember what issue that is so I can't confirm. Pretty cool of Flynn if he linked it to that.

So Silver is stuck now? Great! He'll be a great heavy hitter not that Bunnie's gone. And, WOW! I betcha Bunnie's off to the Desert place to visit uncle Beauregard to be LEGIONIZED to get her robot limbs back! Man, I HOPE NOT! Let her keep her normal form and just have her pack a suit like Rotor (weird as it looks). But if she does go there, let her bump into Mighty and Ray as they search for Mathilda, YEAH!

Nicole being removed was... sad. But I don't enjoy the political side of things. Makes me feel dirty (and not in a good way.) (Lol)

LOL at Sonic losing his cool all the time. Muttski can talk to him now because of the babel fish, right?

Secret Freedom Fighters... Elias - leader. Silver - powerhouse. Um, Thrash - wildcard. Uh, Nicole - tech support. Bean and Bark - probably going to pop up because they're Flynn's favorites.


Sonic Universe #38 Scrambled Part 2. Woo, page time for Hope! OMG, she invented the Sonic 3 fire shield! Sooooo AWESOME!!! That was great moment too. Pretty cool that Flynn used those cannon fodder guards that Dulcy's boyfriend chinese dragon killed in... #107 of Sonic the Hedgehog? Wow, it's been that long? I would have been happy if Snively really just want to have a family again but I couldn't help by laugh when he devolved into a megalomaniacal speech. Laugh then cry. Poor Hope. Those Egg transports of Eggman look weeeeird, LOL! I have little hope that Regina and Snively's reunion will have a good outcome but, y'know, I kinda want their relationship to be real, instead of Regina just using Snively like that (which she never showed). It was Snively who abandoned her, really.

Mega Man #12 is out?!? @#$@#@%!!! I can't get my copy until next week!

Yeah, Sonic dragging Silver like that was funny yet freaky. Silver really pushed it though when he started grasping at straws and thought Bunnie was the traitor. That's when he deserved a small beatdown.

HA! I'd actually like to see Sonic and Silver battle it out. Sonic really wouldn't stand a chance against TK.

From the notebook, I'm assuming the traitor is Geoffrey. What if the traitor timeline has already passed and it was Patch, the Evil Antoine, when he did infiltrate the group.

Now I'm thinking it's the unlikeliest of the Freedom Fighters. Nicole going Maverick again. Or maybe Miles the Evil Tails (he looked pretty schemey evil the last time the Suppression Squad came over). There was a double of Tails that Mammoth Mogul used before. Maybe part of him will return (I don't think it was absorbed by the real Tails. Real Tails doesn't have the double's memories)

Anyhow, poor Silver. Not allowed to go home until he figures out the real traitor. Guh, what if it's Mecha Sally and not really an internal traitor anyhow? Oh well.

That was my assumption--that Silver just knows one of the Freedom Fighters went evil and screwed everyone over, and is only assuming that that means there's a traitor.

Well, I realize that I'm potentially the only one excited about it, but CBR had a couple of great new interviews with the people heading up the NEW CRUSADERS initiative, and they talked about quite a bit, including the fact that the series will be offered as a print comic a few months after it debuts digitally.

This was the best news for me, since I lack any kind of iDevice, and was pretty much going to have to just wait and hope for collected editions anyway.

Isn't the 'pot leaf' (lmao!) a symbol of royalty or something? I didn't play SONIC THE HEDGEHOG or whatever the game so I don't know what the design is for but I remember Scourge wearing the leaf as a crown during hedgehog havoc (Amy, Rob, Silver, Metal, Rosy etc free for all when Scourge used anarchy beryls). I assumed it was an established authority/king symbol. I don't recall if King Shadow or King Sonic wore one in 30 years later.

I'll check out the New Crusaders if I get access to it cuz it's got Flynn and Bates on it. I don't want to check previews so I don't know how long Bates is staying at Mega Man. Fly-girl and the Web seem like they'd be the obvious pair up, lol.
