I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

There is absolutely nothing wrong with either of the previous two FF movies. I love them both. All they need to do is get Reed, Sue, and Ben to return, tweak the Thing effects to look better, and cast a new Johnny.

Seriously. We don't need a damn reboot.

You might not think so, but execs will until they get a film that makes back its budget at least 4-7 times over, which Rise of the Silver Surfer failed to do.

I'd argue that Doom was a terrible interpretation and the general tone and writting of the film rather missed the sense of exploration and pulp adventure that the FF has at its best.


-ZacWilliam, they weren't the worst superhero films I've seen. I would kinda like a Reed who came across as rather smarter and more focused. And an Invisible woman that did the same. Torch and Thing were fine but I doubt you'd get either back now.

Well after turning Galactus into a giant Cloud of doom it's their own fault. Admittedly a ginormous man in Purple and a tuning fork helmet wouldn't fly much in reality but they could of done much better.

But I'm with Magnus. The FF movies were decent enough as they are. I wouldn't mind Alba being replaced or Doom getting some one new. Replacing Johnny is a must now that Evans is now cemented as Cap But I'm cool with Chiklis as the Thing and Gruffudd as Reed still.

Doom I'll willingly give you. But he's a remarkable difficult character to get right both in terms of writing, acting, and especially looks. The actor would need to wear essentially an Iron Man suit covered in a costume to effectively pull it off. Not that I'm saying it's something I wouldn't happily want to see. icon-arcee.gif

I think one of the major things that ticked everyone off in Rise of the Silver Surfer was the whole Galactus thing. It tainted everyone's opinion of the whole film.

I didn't know anything about Galactus or much about the Silver Surfer before seeing the second Fantastic Four movie, and I still thought it was completely awful. Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis tried admirably, but the script, direction, effects, Thing suit, and Jessica Alba were all just terrible.

Definitely best rebooted, with the originals ignored. Shame it can't be by Marvel themselves.

Sue and Johnny Storm can both be black, why not? I do think it's stretching a bit more if they're of two different races and adopted or half-siblings or something. Keep it simple, and hueswap both or neither.

Maybe Donald Glover can be Johnny.

If they can accurately capture the spirit of the characters AND tell a compelling story, I won't care what the actors' melanin levels are.

He is...and he isn't. I can't defend Rise of the Silver Surfer, but to me the first FF film worked because Doom wasn't Doctor Doom, ruler of Latveria and destroyer of all who opposed him. He was Victor Von Doom, businessman and philanthropist. In what is essentially the first outing of the character, the fact he came across as "off" is to be expected. Doctor Doom has had dang near 50 years of continuity building him up (and making him fall down...I'm looking at you Wearing the Skin of my Dead Ex Girlfriend Victor) - a film only having a two and a half hour run time isn't going to do him justice.

But taking it from the perspective of Victor Von Doom, who rules a Board Room and not a Country...I find his characterization acceptable. Also I'm probably one of the few people who actually really did enjoy his initial outfit. It retained that classic feel while being more in line with - again - what a businessman would wear.


I still fondly regard The Fantastic Four as one of the better Super Hero adaptations. The Rise of the Silver Surfer...I do not.

Rise of the Silver Surfer started off having a great doom, but once he was healed by the surfer's powers he was back to being not awesome again, which is a shame, because Doom running around with Surfer Powers should have been great.

In the first movie Doom's master plan was to shoot lightning around the city. In the second movie he just wanted to surf regardless of the dying planet.

No, Doom sucked in both.

In the beginning of rise when he was moping in his castle talking to himself? That could have been great things. And the surfing itself was fine, the ignoring of the dying planet; not so much.

But yeah, losing Doom to Fox is the worst part of them keeping the license. Now him and Tony will never time travel on the big screen together and that makes me sad. And no Dr. Strange crossover. And...

To be entirely fair, it's not that far of a stretch if you discover one day you can shoot lightning from your hands that you decide to take the opportunity to go on a GTA style rampage for no other reason then UNLIMITED POWAH!

Of course if this does turn out true, the funniest part will be seeing how they rewrite Johnny Storm into a black guy in the comics.

I like them all because they're talented actors who fit the roles. Aisha Tyler can do just about anything, and I want a bit of Geordi Laforge in my Reed Richards.

I'm actually going to be slightly disappointed if we don't get an all black FF.

Personally, I liked the casting for the original movie except for Sue. They cast a pair of tits instead of real talent. Johnny, Reed and Ben were all fine.

I don't agree because I don't feel those actors fit at all, regardless of skin color. mostly Burton. I love the man but I don't want Reed to be an older man. I LOVE the Ultimate comics for making him younger, current status notwithstanding. They are a family but it's also an action flick. Plus he's rather short and I've never seen him hit those sharp, disconnected tones Reed would have.

I just don't think any of those fit.
