@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:33 AM)

I can dig it

@  unluckiness : (19 June 2018 - 08:21 AM)

So Thunderbolts with giant robots?

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:22 PM)

Thundercracker, in particular.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:21 PM)

Some of the Decepticons start to really enjoy being the good guys. Well, they enjoy the act, at least. They find fulfillment in their assumed personas.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:20 PM)

Except SHockwave eventually betrays his teammates and teams up with Skynet.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:20 PM)

Starscream becomes the young, eager Nightscream, and so on.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

Megatron becomes the noble Megabolt, taking cues from Beast Wars Silverbolt.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

A Thunderbolts-esque masquerade.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:19 PM)

In order to do so, the Decepticons pretend to be the good guys and take on different personas.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:18 PM)

So Megatron decides that hey, the Autobots are stillback on Cybertron, so why not team up with the humans, defeat Skynet, then double-cross the humans?

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

Unfortunately, the Skynet/humans war is already going on, and Skynet is evolving rapidly.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

The Decepticons discover Earth and want to plunder its resources.

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

It would have a really crazy twist:

@  Nevermore : (18 June 2018 - 06:17 PM)

I've had this crazy idea for a Transformers/Terminator crossover for years.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:20 PM)

Specifically I'd like to see Skynet's army rise up against him (he did refer to them as an "army of slaves" in Genisys), or even perhaps a peace-minded iteration of Skynet that's existed in a humanoid form long enough to gain some compassion for the human point of view

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:19 PM)

A peaceful resolution would be satisfying for me (it's the only resolution possible in The Matrix series, too), but I think the majority of Terminator fans would walk out think WTF?

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 June 2018 - 05:15 PM)

I liked Clarke as Sarah as well, although I read a lot of complaints online that she looked too young, but I thought she was pretty badass.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 05:11 PM)

I think across these movies, there's a very compelling story about a progressive temporal arms race driven by mutual fear in which Judgement Day keeps getting pushed back, which only gives both sides more time for technological development, and the only true resolution to it is cooperation. But cooperation will never come about because each side fears being wiped out by the other.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2018 - 05:05 PM)

Genisys basically made Sara Connors' entire motivation in stopping judgement day stem from not wanting to sleep with Jai Courtney. and really, can you blame her?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 June 2018 - 03:52 PM)

I'll give Genisys another thing, Emilia Clarke made a damn good Linda Hamilton. (As for Jai Courtney looking nothing like Michael Biehn, that just supports my theory that it's not always the same "Kyle Reese" sent back which would explain why John Connor looks different in almost every movie.)

@  Rycochet : (18 June 2018 - 02:54 PM)

I'm not, I'm lost in music.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2018 - 12:59 PM)

@  Waspinator : (17 June 2018 - 11:03 PM)

On the subject of a Mega Man movie

@  Msol : (17 June 2018 - 04:47 PM)

Man I really wish Slash was blue instead of red. Swoop looks off as the only blue one. What a missed opportunity!

@  Otaku : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 PM)

@Bass X0 So, getting back to Mega Man as a movie and smart-aleck answers, wouldn't Astroboy (2009) count? ;) Otherwise, I'm torn; part of me is glad they haven't tried given Hollywood's track record.

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 01:52 PM)

and some TV show...

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2018 - 01:35 PM)

John Connor?! John Connor! JOHN CONNORRRRR!!!!

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 12:26 PM)

Pretty sure that's what happened to John Connor in that last one

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 12:17 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2018 - 11:49 AM)

@Nevermore Rice of fhe Macheens: taking over the world with evil robots the size of rice grains.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:36 AM)

It eventually goes off the rails, but the bones of an interesting story are there. I enjoyed it more than Rise of the Machines or Salvation

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 11:26 AM)

There was Genysis, Jujjmend Dae, Salvayshon and Rice of the Macheens, or something.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2018 - 11:25 AM)

I actually re-watched Genisys the other day, and I'll give it one thing. The beginning of the movie with the pre-Terminator 1 future scenes all looked really fantastic.

@  Xellos : (17 June 2018 - 11:08 AM)

Five, actually, with a sixth in development. Varying degrees of cannonicity between them, though.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 07:59 AM)

There was only two movies, right?

@  Paladin : (17 June 2018 - 07:08 AM)

overall, lousy. there's one great one, one pretty good one and everything else under that brand sucks.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 June 2018 - 06:52 AM)

uuuhhh, what do you think the terminator movies are?

@  Bass X0 : (17 June 2018 - 06:35 AM)

Why has Mega Man never been given a Hollywood movie?

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:32 AM)

Considering at least half our workforce is not of "German" descent, racism should really have no place at our workplace.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:23 AM)

The one thing that really fascinated me was how he was so adamant that his kids have to learn German that he insisted on only speaking German at home. I'm not saying that this is the one true way to do it, but I did respect him for that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:22 AM)

Always cheerful, always friendly. Leaves behind a wife and three kids.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:21 AM)

I'd have done this either way, but in this case it particularly pissed me off because the deceased coworker was literally the nicest person you could possibly hope to meet.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2018 - 04:18 AM)

He deserved it to be suspended. What an imbecile.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:17 AM)

****ing disgusting racist.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

Guy was immediately suspended from work.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:16 AM)

He literally said in my face "they only make a big fuss because that token negro died". I said "dude, what are you saying?" He said "my parent taught me to say what I think." I said "bad enough for you to think like that." and then reported him.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2018 - 04:15 AM)

So I told this other longtime employee that I was planning to go to the funeral, and he went on a tirade about how "other people had died too", and this was only treated as a big deal because this guy was black.

Hoo boy, after the stunt Iris and Wally pulled in this episode, keeping Joe in the dark about Iris's future death is really gonna come back to bite everyone in the butt worse than ever.

 

Also, brief visit to Supergirl Earth in this one!

That Earth-hopping fight was unexpected and the kind of stuff I love this show for. Also, I had qualms about Julian joining the team, but he was on fire this episode.

Waiting for one last shoe to drop regarding H.R., as they seemed to be implying he did something much worse than multiversal travel at some point.

Is there any particular reason why they can't keep vibing forward to Iris's death to see if their efforts are having an effect on anything?

Just caught up with the latest ep, pretty good, thou the scene with Isis breaking into the Arms dealer hide out kind of got me thinking, padlocks, are they always undo when someone strikes them with a piece of metal in the fictional worlds?

 

HR, I seriously doult he has stopped broadcasting his novel into the multiverse.

 

The vive brawl was ok I guess, it was a little amusing to see them crashland on the coffee table in Supergirl world.

Some serious stupid this ep. How about, instead of trying to teach Wally phasing by having him run full speed into a wall, maybe you could teach him the hand phase first?

Who knows, maybe they'll kill off Earth 1 Caitlin completely and have her return next season as a Caitlin from say the Earth Supergirl is from, they did that with Dr Wells, granted that was also the Reverse Flash attempting to get his powers back, thou I didn't really like how they killed him off in season 1 finally, or at least the aftermath because what happened should of really shook up the status quo, Zoom's demise was much better, thou I think the door is open for him to return one day in some form or another. The current central villian, I'm not majorly keen on currently because its all CGI and that is rather boring for a major villian to be unless they have some real talent and thought in their creation, thou that merely my view.

I was thinking that kind of thing, too. Certainly she's entitled to move on, but in the context of a fictional show like this, it seems like they're turning her into "brainy potential love interest (with Killer superpowers)." Just doesn't sit well somehow.

I don't feel like Caitlin is the potential love interest, it's more that they've never really known what to do with her and so she's the one getting lots of romance plots so the writers can claim they are actually doing stuff with her character.

 

Some serious stupid this ep. How about, instead of trying to teach Wally phasing by having him run full speed into a wall, maybe you could teach him the hand phase first?

 

I was thinking since they have the whole course upstairs for him to run through why not set up some thin paper walls or something if they really wanted to go for the full-on treatment? Not everything has to hurt, Barry.

 

I feel like they were trying to take that plot with Joe's girlfriend's daughter somewhere (not her obsession with Kid Flash, but her rubbing the West clan the wrong way in general) but then they forgot.

I thought the idea was that the failure of each relationship (not just romance, because it starts with her mother) breaks her heart more and more, driving her closer to becoming Killer Frost.

That's not a half-bad idea actually, but I don't get that vibe from how they've played it. Speaking specificallty about the romantic relationsghips, each time it seems like a clean reset with only a few token mentions of the previous relationship. It was particularly notable with Jay, where after pining over Robbie for a bit [her main character feature for what felt like quite a while] it was soon like nothing had happened.

 

I'm in the "doesn't sit well with me" camp, because it seems like such a waste of a good character and performer. I mean, CISCO moved on from being the one-note Nerd Reference Villain Renamer Guy (and while his recent angles have leaned on angst it's pretty justificable angst!), which I'm pleasantly surprised by. He seemed like the easier one to fall into a rut writing.

It's kind of her thing though isn't it?

 

In the comics she's always been a scorned lover and that's why she's evil.

In the comics, she's the inspiration for the new Justice League Dark team, so they seem to have decided that they need to give Killer Frost a shot at redemption in the comics so as to make her fate less preordained in the show.
