What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

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.

For those of us who never read the comics, which I believe I represent a fairly large percentage of the overall audience, most of this stuff is new. The only thing we know is Stane's movie death and know nothing about his suicide. We don't know the Mandarin at all, etc. If they tie in the Ten Rings back to the first film then it fits more of the universe together for those of us who weren't aware of them or the comics.

I think a lot of things may work nicely in front of a general audience...although they might not be completely adherring to specific story arcs in the comics which might incite a bit of fanrage. IM2 didn't up the game very much in regards to suit tech or baddie from IM1. It was a good film that went a long way in fleshing out Black Widow, Nick Fury, etc. But part of the fun of Iron Man, at least for me, was seeing him do cool new things with the suit. In that regard Avengers actually did a whole lot better job of upping the game. You have Tony with the new de-suiting machine on top of the building which was pretty wicked. You have the new suit which afixes itself mid-air, etc.

Whiplash's finale was rather short. His threat seemed greater in Monaco without the suit he had later in the film. The drones just didn't present a threat. They mowed them down without any issue. It was like the drones were shooting blanks. Then you had that cool laser thing Tony did but all that did was just make the threat even less intense.

IM3 needs to up the game on both Tech, which will certainly happen with Extremis if they do it right(just watched the Marvel Knights motion comic on that), and the suspense if they bring in some credible people who can be more a threat in the final act.

-ZacWilliam, also not against Ben Kingsley as the Mandarin, but being Chinese is kinda who the Mandarin is. I mean his name IS "the Mandarin". Maybe Kingsley's character really likes oranges?


Well, a Mandarin was originally "(in the Chinese Empire) a member of any of the nine ranks of public officials, each distinguished by a particular kind of button worn on the cap." so I could see it as a name of a powerful crimlord/terrorist operating in China. Alternatively, maybe he's super secrative and outside of his direct subordinates, the only thing anyone knows about him is that he speaks Mandarin Chinese (and thus it's a shock he himself is not Chinese)

QUOTE(DrSpengler @ May 30 2012, 01:58 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
"It would be an Abomination."

I love these movies like nobody's business, but their way of using the character names only as "sly jokes" has kinda gotten old. Did Whiplash ever get a name drop in "Iron Man 2" or was he strictly called Vanko?


Blonksy is referred to as the Abomination by Sitwell (Coulson's sidekick) in Marvel One-Shot: The Consultant. So that name, at least, stuck.

QUOTE(Database @ May 30 2012, 02:17 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
AIM and MODOK would be really good film material. A terrorist group focused on super sciences is right up Iron Man's alley for these movies, plenty of material for special effect fights with any number of super weapons or other tech they've stole or devolped, before revealing their greatest creation: MODOK a human super computer that can easily out think anyone with access to tech that would give anyone trouble in straight fight.


I was always hoping they'd use AIM as the antagonists in the Ant-Man movie. SCIENCE! versus EVIL SCIENCE!

I was more diappointed that they decided to basically make him Crimson Dynamo but didn't make him Crimson Dynamo. And now they can't use Crimson Dynamo. Booooooo!


There was plenty of time between activation of the bomb and detonation for Vanko to slip away. Not to mention, nothing stated implied his suit was rigged to blow and it wasn't just the Hammeroids.


They'd have to recast him, since Mickey Rourke pretty much burned his bridges with Marvel while trying to publicity for The Immortals (referring to director Jon Favreau as "having no balls" and saying the Immortals is better than "some Marvel piece of !@#$"

I agree with you that he could easily be alive. You do NOT put a big flashing light in your chest if you want to try to take your enemy out in an explosion. You do it so he'll run away, giving you time to limp your broke butt to safety. icon-fire.gif

QUOTE
Speaking of Ghost, I'm disappointed. If they're still squeamish to be using the Mandarin, then go with Ghost and the Spymaster instead. Strikes me you could easily use the Extremis plot with those two, without having to tie in Mandarin.

It's funny, Ghost was strongly rumored before all this casting stuff came out. I was kinda looking forward to seeing him.

QUOTE
Speaking of the Mandarin, and speaking as a long time Iron Man fan, I hope he doesn't show up in the films. Mandarin is Iron Man's iconic villain...but his motivations are hopelessly undefined.

Eh, if they're changing his race, now is as good a time as any to create some defined goals for him.

QUOTE(Rust @ May 30 2012, 02:56 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
That was the story that convinced me the Mandarin just isn't villain material. He's the go-to Plot Device when a story falls to pieces or they just need filler. If I want Tony to match wits with a evil genius, I'll stick to his tussles with Doctor Doom.

As mentioned, the movie rights to Doctor Doom are wrapped in the Fantastic Four license, and Fox will likely do everything in it's power to keep them, so Doom is out as a potential option.

If you watch the scene, Whiplash is beating the crap out of Tony and Rhodey and it was only through the use of the Chekov's Repulsor Blast that they defeated him. I like to think Whiplash's suit handled the fight so well because it was specifically designed to battle people in Iron Man suits, while Tony's suit is more generalized and meant for fighting people who aren't in suits.

Well
HIGHLIGHT to view:
One of the actors playing a villain (Coldblood, specifically) was seen in the suit.)

As for Ant-Man, what Darkstream said about villians applies to heroes too. It's not the character that' s boring, it's how he's written. Personally I think there's a lot of meat on the Ant-Man bone.

-Genius level scientist who has made extreme breakthroughs in the fields of artificial intelligence, robotics, entomology and most importantly physics. It'd be really fun to see him in a room with Stark and Banner.
-He can shrink down, while retaining the strength and speed of a fullsize person. In addition, this can allow for some "Honey I shrunk the kids" style alien landscapes to help give the movie a unique feel.
-He can grow to enormous size, increasing his strength to levels that only characters like Hulk and Thor can really compete with
-He can communicate and control insects, which is especially handy when you're now smaller than an insect
-Quite possibly would be the first superhero duo to be make into a movie, since Wasp really isn't his sidekick: she's his partner. Plus you wouldn't have to shoe-horn in the love story like so many other movies do: you can start them off already in a relationship even. icon-fire.gif

So long as they leave the "Hank Pym is crazy" and the wifebeating stuff out, I would adore an Ant-Man movie. He's just a fun character and his power set is really unique.

Nah, marvel wussed out of doing alchoholic Tony. I doubt they'd do spousal abuse Pym. I especially doubt Disney would let them if they wanted to.

But as far as "only interesting thing" one thing I forgot is that he built Ultron, who is a fantastic Avengers villain.

Ultron in turn built Vision, who is a pretty beloved member of the Avengers.

Except NO writer, imho, has EVER made him not a complete bore and who is almost completely useless. About the only "good" thing he's ever done was make Ultron who became one of the iconic Avenger villains. Not even EMH has made him a good character to me. Even Mandarin with all his various interpretations tends to be interesting in at least some of them and has enjoyable moments. He might be a plot device most the time but he's a memorable plot device. The only thing people ever remember Hank Pym for is one over-exaggerated panel that made him a wife beater to the point that its become almost common knowledge, as much of a misconception that it is, that he is an abusive crazy wifebeater. I don't think he's ever going to over come that no matter how good a writer you put on him.

Pym has done a lot of interesting things, people simply remember his mental breakdown over everything else (btw, Reed is shown in comics hitting his family more often than the single time Hank hit Janet, which occurred during a mental breakdown, so why is it he's considered this amazing family man and Hank is always called a wife-beater?)

Hank really just needs to be portrayed how he's always come across. He's a mad scientist trying desperately to be a hero, instead of a villain.

Becuase Reed has done Fantastic things rather then just "interesting" things, which end up more memorable. If Hank had memorable moments other then that, maybe people would remember him for them instead.

Well, aside from the Ultimate Spider-Man cast.

Tried feeding Janet to his Ants after spraying her with Insecticide while she was shrunk down. Also a later conversation between other teammates reveals Hank had been abusing Janet since College.

...and then Blob bit her head off.

Ah Ultimates. "We need a way to top Hank once hitting his wife while out of his mind guys, I KNOW! WE'LL MAKE IT SO HE'S ABUSIVE, MONSTEROUS, AND MURDEROUS!" And people wonder why I'm hoping Reed and his Children win?

The whole Ultimates Universe needs an enema.

It got one...that completely changed up the status quo so much that familiar faces just...don't exist anymore.

Ironbite-and then they killed off Spider-Man.

Thankfully, the Marvel movie series seems to have just taken the best from the Ultimates and ignored everything else.

Did some digging on Coldblood, since this is the first I've heard of him being in the film. Not much to the guy, nor is he a regular Iron Man villain (Indeed, he seems to have never crossed paths with Tony), but if the movie is about Extremis and have a potential military angle with Tony's designs...and turns out he was a member of S.H.I.E.L.D. too.

Huh. He actually would make sense for a film like this.

In a world where China already controls a lot of the world through business, 'old Mandy might be a "little" too on the nose, but I don't care. He's the hugging Mandarin and needs to be in an Iron Man movie. Make him a business man, have his mission be about turning the world upside down to create a new world order ruled by him out of China and his corporation. Make him be a sly player like the Anti-Christ has been portrayed in fiction; make him Tony's Moriarty. ANYTHING. Not unreasonable.

Or have him wear the rings that used to power a dragon's space ship. I don't give a hug, but Marvel has done well with these moving pictures, the Mandarin deserves a chance.

If you want to know more about Hank Pym and his characterization, I urge you to read Mighty Avengers #21-31. Dan Slott made great strides in making him more than just the guy who hit his wife and made Ultron.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.
