I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

I started this thread so we can discuss the film without constant spoiler tags.

That entire third act was the greatest on screen spectacle any Superhero fan could ask for! And I truly love the old Marvel trope of misunderstandings between the heroes causing epic battles before they team up.

Definately a great movie and it's gonna be hard to top with the sequel. The humor mixed with action really worked well IMO, everything seemed to be timed really well. Definately saddened by Coulson's fate though. icon-screamer.gif

Even though I'm hardly familiar with some of Marvel's stuff, I was really excited when I saw Thanos, even though his name escaped me...I guessed Thanatos first, which is close...my friend stood up and asked "Who's a nerd in here? What was that dude's name?" as it escaped us both, but we realized the gravity of his dramatic head turn.


Hulk ended up being one of the funniest and one of the best characters, even though he wasn't on screen for so long. When he punched Thor and wiped the floor with Loki....everyone lost it.


And also: Shawarma. Dear god, the shawarma.

We were convinced that Coulson would be revealed to be alive at the end of the movie. We see paramedics run up to him literally a second after he dies, and we never see his body again after that. Figured it was Fury bending the truth to get the team to work together.

I'm still half-convinced that's exactly what happened, and we'll be seeing him show up as a surprise in the next one.

In the meantime...did it drive anybody else crazy how there were two or three scenes where they forgot to turn on Stark's chest light under his T-shirt?

Yeah I really hope Coulson didn't really die. *SIGH*

I didn't notice Tony's lack of a chest light under his shirt, whoops,lol.


Hulk punching Thor and whiping the floor with Loki (and interrupting his speech) was freakin hilarious. I'm really happy with how Hulk was handled this time, "Hulk smash" indeed. icon-ironhide.gif

that settled it for me that it was thanos. there was a group of people walking passed me after the movie discussing who it was. a girl said it was either red skull or thanos. i made mention of the courting death line and how much he loves death that it couldnt be anyone else

i hated that they killed coulson icon-screamer.gif dirty bastards. i also think this caused a change in stark. he seemed a bit more serious after he died

it didnt drive me nuts, but i did notice it

anyone else catch stark saying he was an "l.m.d." at the beginning? i liked that

im definitely gonna have to go see this again
When I die I will surely go to Heaven for i spent my life in Hell

I loved the pace of the movie. Made it go by without me wondering what time it was.

Oh man. Loki's face after getting slammed around by the Hulk. That was amazing.

I loved how Banner was all "I'm always angry" and then turned into the Hulk without any effort. The end of the last Hulk flick showed that he was practicing so it's good to see all that hard work paid off.

The thing I didn't get was why did Hulk attack Black Widow and Thor on the ship, was it because he was in a rage? He seemed much more controlled in the final bit, saving Iron Man, is it because he got to smash things? - Edit just realised this is being discussed in the other thread.

I'm going with the staff effecting him. Remember when he picked it up and didn't realize it?
This also plays on comic history where Loki controlled the Hulk which brought the team together in the first place.

This was a great thrill-ride. So cool seeing all those guys on screen together after all these years.

Hulk punching Thor and then later wiping the floor with Loki were just epic - Count me in that camp.

As for Tony's chest piece not lighting up, we are talking about the scene where he and Loki have a chat. I'm almost sure that right before that scene Jarvis makes mention of turning off the Arc chestpiece. Listen for it if you go see it again.

I think Loki's staff was bringing out everyone's anger as everyone in the room was fighting and even getting more and more in a rage. I think that plus the sneak attack on the helicarrier was too much for Banner to control his rage so when he transformed he figured Widow must've been the cause for his anger. Then of course anything that attacks him becomes a target to smash, enter Thor and then the pilot.

No, it's throughout the film. Just random shots and at least one whole scene where it's not lit for no good reason.

Well, in that instance, that's obviously so that Loki won't see the light shining through his shirt and hence won't realise what's wrong when he pokes him with the staff and it doesn't work.

I just didn't like the mismatch of the Hulk from the first part to the second part. Two different Hulks if you ask me.

Especially how terrified Banner was at the beginning about turning into the Hulk.

I understand the Hulk and his blind rage, but he seemed pretty confidant at the end about being able to control the Hulk.
