DC Comics Gay Character Revealed (Article) - 1/16/2015 6:58:25 PM

My brand new Ka Bar 1212 arrived yesterday.  And I already cut myself.  Lol!  I tell ya what though...that goddamn thing is so sharp I didn't even know it til I looked down and saw blood oozing from my finger.  Tiny little nick though.  No biggie...

AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON Trailer #2 (Article) - 1/12/2015 11:04:00 PM

All their minds are going to be corrupted by Ultron, resulting in the Iron Man/Hulk battle.

Batman V. Superman TWO films? (Article) - 1/12/2015 8:44:07 PM

Violatorr/ElBaz, you certainly addressed my questions well enough.  And if those questions are more thoroughly addressed and/or answered in these future movies then even better.  You guys have to please bare with me.  Again, I'm just a movie buff.  I got into this site many years ago during the Cinescape days and the days of development hell lists because of the movies.  I never got into comics.  Sure I have a fair grasp of the major characters and stories, but the very question I just brought up is something that doesn't necessarily register with me, or many others, as a non-comic guy.  I certainly understand it.  I just look at things from outside the comic universe.

With that line "I'm gonna tear you apart from the inside" I think it's going to really set up Capt. 3 and the Civil War story line.  And I don't even read comic books and I'm figuring things out and getting into it!  Lol!  Go me!

Back to my original point.  What about friggin' Hawkeye?  Dude hasn't had his own solo flick, so who the hell knows what he's been up to?  Maybe he's busy banging Black Widow in his off time or maybe he's just sitting in his one bedroom apartment jerking off to midget babysitter porn.  Either way just drop him into Iron Man 3 and I bet that movie is at least a little bit better.

Thank you, redhairs!  That's exactly my point as a non-comic person and strictly a movie guy.  Like it or not, if you're going to make these semi-grounded movies out of comic book stories and superheroes then you're left with the inevitable problem of making it at least somewhat plausible.  What's plausible about Thor fighting on earth all by his lonesome?  What's plausible about Captain America figthing a SHIELD revolt by himself?  What's plausible about Iron Man saving the president, and subsequently the world, by himself while also fighting off a complete nervous breakdown?  Again, I get it.  That's how it goes in the comic books.  But these are movies that are meant for the masses.  And the masses ask these questions.  If you want to turn these characters and stories into movies, especially a series of movies that tie in together, you should address these things.  That being said, the formula seems to be working fine.  But the questions are there and they're completely valid.  Otherwise we're left with Batman and Robin...

NEW Justice League: Throne of Atlantis Clips and Images (Article) - 1/11/2015 11:12:31 PM

Is this tied in at all with either the JL or JL Unlimited series that I've been watching now and then on Netflix?

And I will agree (for once) with blankczech on the point about "Where the hell is everyone?"  As someone who never got into comics it just doesn't make sense to me why at least just ONE Avenger wouldn't come to the aid of Ironman or Cap.  I mean, I get it.  They're solo movies.  And the others are "off on their own adventures."  But seriously?  You're telling that even Hawkeye, the kinda honorary Avenger in this whole thing, was too busy to help save SHIELD or give Tony a hand?  And I would argue that the involvement of Hawkeye might have even made Iron Man 3 better.  I watched it again last week On Demand (HBO or Starz, whichever was actually free with my subscription) and it really is one of, if not THE, weakest of all the Marvel movies, IMO.

I guess that's fine if this is true.  As long as they don't put off Part II until 2021 or some shit. 

Mania Box Office Report: TAKEN with Taken 3 (Article) - 1/11/2015 10:44:47 PM

Went to see The Gambler on Friday night, a late 9:55 showing, and there were a LOT of people there to see Taken 3.  Gambler was really good even though it wasn't exactly what I was expecting.

And I can't imagine I'm the only one who wasn't impressed with Five Armies, or the entire series as a whole.  I thought GOTG was a far superior film so the only reason I can think of as to why Five Armies overtook it is just the predigree and people wanting to finish what they started with their investment in the entire Rings series altogether.  It was just not as good as Guardians.
