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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

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)

varies from person to person.

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 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.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

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

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

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)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

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

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

@  MEDdMI : (25 November 2019 - 08:53 PM)

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

Surprisingly, out of the 3 premieres we've had so far, this one has me most interested in the year to come.

 

Appreciate them bringing in Radu's coffee shop from the Kyle Rayner Green Lantern books.

 

Shouldn't Cody Rhodes' character be held in a metahuman prison?  Obviously, the real reason why he's there is because Amell wanted to do his friend a favor, but it seems a little unlikely that the character would be put there, or could be held there for long.

I'm actually rather curious about the "Grown up William seeks Oliver on Lian Yu" B-plot. Is it the future? The past with time travel involved? Something else entirely? Who knows.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

I didn't really catch on to that until I read the talkbacks.  That scene was so dark, plus I'm so used to Roy's eerily-smooth face.  This rougher look definitely suits him though.

 

I keep going back and forth on whether Roy is the new Green Arrow.  GA had Roy's habit of doing unnecessary parkour in the middle of battle, but I think that's meant to mislead us.

While I'll be a bit sad to see Arrow end but I think its about time, really, I think the show kind of lost its way in season 6 when they no longer had Oilver's back story and the season stories began to drag out and the villians aren't that great, the first four were desent, the fifth ok, I guess but he was bit more forgettable, the sixth, main villian, he just struck me as a bit of a moron or a hopeless cause, he built up to be someone who meant to be cunning and smart, yet, I just feel he lacks something to really make him really great, I think its what the actor brings to the role, he feels a bit standard bad guy, it might be just me on that! At least we can say Arrow had a good run with 8 seasons and two spin off series set in the same Universe, even if one is about travelling through time!

Based on comments made in interviews, it's been very clear that Stephen Amell was going to be done with the show after season 8.  I was wondering if they were going to try to keep it going with Green Arrow 2, but recent events in-universe made that very unlikely even before this news came along.  It's still sad news though, especially when watching Amell get choked up on Facebook Live.

 

Judging from the shortened season, it looks like Arrow will bow out shortly after Crisis, and Batwoman will come in as a midseason replacement.

CWerse would be a good name for it. I wouldn't be surprised to see the CWerse start to get cancelled as soon as the contracts run out. I mean, DC is pushing their own streaming service and all, so it would make sense to push the shows there.

It'll always be the Arrowverse to me.

I think even a smaller broadcast network like the CW can still attract a larger audience than a young streaming service at this point. The bigger danger to the Arrowverse that I see is its ability to hold on to its leads.

Melissa Benoist definitely has opportunities beyond Supergirl, I seriously doubt that she'll stay for 8 years. Grant Gustin doesn't seem to have as many outside projects, but after Amell, he's been there the longest, so I feel it's only a matter of time before he's done.

As an ensemble show, I think Legends can weather cast departures better than the other shows, but I feel its high costs and low ratings will cause it to end sooner rather than later.

It's been said that season 5 of Supergirl may be it's last (we are currently on season 4).  The rumor says that the ratings aren't very good and DC is considering making a Supergirl movie (with their whole not having more than one representation thing that would give them extra incentive to end the TV series).

As of now Flash seems to be the only show that still feels fun. Arrow has run it's course, and Supergirl is running it's politcal agenda much too strongly the last few seasons. Legends feels like it's been an afterthought since it was created. While still fun it's still clearly the Arrowverses b-team effort. Of course it sounds like Cisco is leaving the Flash after this season too, so there goes a good part of my favorite cast members there.
