Mania Box Office Report: Guardians Score 2nd Best Weekend (Article) - 8/11/2014 5:18:52 AM

For the first time in my life, I went to the movies alone....and only GOTG was able to make me do this.

The experience before and after the movie was not pleasent but the movie was great...saw it a second time with a friend and she loved it and the experience was way better. Somehow seeing movies alone isn't my thing...and I have enough guy or girl friends that eventually, I can find someone to go see it with me.

But I will NEVER pay to see this new TMNT movie...kids might love it but, it just looks awfull.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Teaser Trailer (Article) - 7/28/2014 12:06:07 PM

Can't wait for this one...don't remember the book and how it ends but, this teaser was enough to wet my appetite once more.

Mania box Office Report: If LUCY fell (Article) - 7/28/2014 8:29:46 AM

How about the fact that the Hercules movie was mostly shown only in 3D theatres and hardly any in regular theatres? Bet the studios aren't talking about THAT issue. Many people don't like 3D and yet they still force the issue by not even allowing to present the movie in both format.

So based on that issue and I can't find a place that shows the movie in non-3D at normal hours (I have a life in the weekends so it if only plays at 12pm, I can't make it), I won't see Hercules...I want to...but the stupid ass theatres and suits who are forcing down my throat this 3D shit aren't getting my $$$.

boxker,

Tigh was accepted because he was in a reboot version of BG, not the original character. Just like the new  Ultimate Spiderman (Miles Morales) is accepted because he's in the Ultimate world...and dare I say, just like the future crapfest of a movie Fantastic Four with Johny Storm as being black...it's accepted because it's Fox and whatever they will do will most lieklly be crap but is also rumored to be based on the ultimate version of the FF.

Yes it's a plan which becomes a gimmick, but if it's done well sometimes it's worth to give these thing a try.

Ahhh, monkeyfoot, how I've missed this...

boxker, from my end, I'm sharing the fact that who cares if it's a woman or a black person. I think whatever change they make will not be permanent because the original characters never go away.

I didn't see many people saying Falcon should NOT be Cap because he's black...or that this new lady should not take the hammer of Thor...didn't see that written by anyone in fact.

The difference is that the ''gimmick'' aspect of it all is what's troubling. It should'nt be an issue that a black person or a woman picks up the hammer...it should just be about characters evolving and switching for whatever reason of the year it needs to evolve.

You can't change skin color of a character that's already established or the gender because...that would not be accepted. It only makes sense that a new character takes over an already established one and go forward temporarally and then come back to the orignal character.

Evolution is a bitch sometimes...OMD anyone??

Part 3

The fact that the Comic industry as a whole is still not as popular as it could be even with all the TV shows, movies and Cons around the world, any press is good press I say...but my message to Marvel, DC, Image and such...if you do a change, do it right and do it for the right reasons and make sure your marketing department sells the right thing, not the skin or sex part, concentrate on the character part.

Now...that is it from me...for now, mouahahaha.

Part 2

Why? Because anything that is different about a character has to be big these days...it can't just happen within the comic itself without warning people something's coming up, it HAS to be announced. That's the world we live in...news, big hook, big splash....the web is talking about it, the news are talking about it, the Comic Cons are doing panels about it. That has become almost the only way to make something big, huge in this day and age.

Captain America has quit before and Thor's hammer has changed hands before. Cap has been replaced by a few people already and is only logical Mjolnir gets pick-up by someone else once in a while.
