i see an especially cheap Asylum / Syfy production in the very near future. »
HOW much of an MCU nerd am i? I'm losing my shit because this is 2 blocks from the hotel i stayed in in April. »
DC really dropped the ball (SHOCKER) by NOT doing a straight up hero / hero team up movie, instead jumping directly into Justice League Issue #0 with "Dawn of Justice".
doing a 2 hero Brave and the Bold movie would've differentiated them from the Avengers "full team" formula, and since they're SO hesitant to do… »
i'm waiting for the grimdark Kroft Superstars reboot from a studio hungry for some of those sweet "shared universe" $$$ »
the current broadcast TV model is OVER. Everyone knows it, and it's UGLY what people will do to make or keep a buck before it's all said and done.
i traffic commercials for a TV station. Glorified data entry, basically. Commercials are assigned to an advertiser's contract with an arbitrary, random "ISCI" code, decided… »
funny - i was just waxing clever on fb the other day about how some studio should reboot the Kroft Superstars lineup into a shared universe. Makes me happy i'm not the only olds around here. »
i've had times in the past, when i'm going through personal stuff - anxiety, depression, etc. - where Jedi-isms hit the spot (up-to and including the prequels, which i generally hate. But Qui Gon's "your focus determines your reality" has gotten me through some tough times)
when the REST of the world seems crazy,… »
I'm not the most seasoned traveler in the world - at all - but i'm gonna have to go with City Museum in St. Louis .Human habitrails like the ones pictured above cover the interior AND exterior. Repurposed and recycled materials cover the building, there's a school bus and AIRPLANE atop the roof (which you can… »
yeah, this was what popped into my head, too. Probably the earliest example of trope-subversion and expectation-bending... »
jesus, yes. I'd have better feelings about the human race overall if more people were talking about the fact that MM is the sort of one-note "funny man" who'd get tiresome drunken frat party. »
what's with #5? They're all amazing, then I'm looking at a painting that looks like a bad photoshop. Is it supposed to be post-modern or "meta" or something? »
like some other commenters here, i dig the searching for Master Skywalker bit, too. What i'd REALLY like to see is him play it all "crazy wisdom" style. Maybe he's been meditating off by himself for 30 years, with no idea what's going on in the galaxy at large. It'd set these movies apart from the EU, it's something… »
"have "the character" return later with a different actor in the role." This, this, a million times THIS. Old soap opera trick, and comics / superhero universes are nothing if not soap operas. Add to this that the new Tony Stark / Steve Rogers, etc. will likely be interacting w/ all new CHARACTERS as well, developing… »
This is just fresh in my head. I wouldn't go so far as to say, "it doesn't MATTER who created Ultron", but for the purposes of the MOVIES, where Tony is already the resident scientific genius, it just makes sense.
it's not as if there isn't already a ton of things they've changed on the way from the page to the screen. »
i just watched some of that footage of him reading... is Mr. Gibson not in the best health? Or maybe he was having an off day? Hope not, it's just weird to hear him being not so biting and sardonic... »
^^^ THIS. i'm not SUCH an MCU nerd that i can't point out when a movie's bad (IM2 for instance) but the fact that robot army is tying DIRECTLY into A2 shows just how much Marvel knows what they're doing... »
