Dude, are we on the same page or what?! I love the original Jameson portrayal, and this is one of those cases where the hair is part of the character. THE HAIR!!! I DEMAND PICTURES OF THE HAIR!!! Make a montage where Jameson puts on a wig if you have to justify it on-screen (hint: you don’t, he’s awesome) but MAKE. Read more

In all seriousness? My money is in New Mutants 2 and even 3 coming before Mr. Martin’s next novel. And I’ll add two post-Cavill generations of Superman films for good measure.

Anyone else watched this and got this song re-stuck in their heads?

I’d rather say I fell into the trap of not explaining further in order to avoid turning the comment into a 10-page manifesto. You are right about all your points here, and I share them. But to explain my point a bit better, I have literally seen the same exact people eviscerate the Snyder movies (the DC ones, not Read more

You are right, the math for the project alone doesn’t seem to make any sense. I think this is more about the publicity. Oscar Wylde once said “There is only one thing in life worse than being talked about, and that is not being talked about.” So I’d be willing to bet at least a good chunk of the money is there to Read more

There is one thing I don’t get about The Snyder Cut as a movement. Previous Snyder movies (Man of Steel and Martha v Mart... I mean, Batman v Superman) were met with all sorts of critiques by the fandom, as in “Oh no, Superman is a murderer” or “I can’t hear the name Martha anymore, WHY DID YOU SAY THAT NAME!”... and Read more

Anyone else noticed all the parallels you can draw between Horde Prime and Steven Universe’s White Diamond?  The calm, terrifying demanor, the hive mind powers, the way they absolutely rock in white clothing... If White Diamond had not changed, can you just imagine those two either together, or on oposite sides of the Read more

Ok. I was in the camp of “The Snyder Cut is a myth”, and to be honest, if they are throwing 30 million bucks of work into it, I kinda still am, as it looks more like they caved in to pressure. Having said that:

My mother, who’s 83, has this terrible penchant for believing anything she sees on TV news. She doesn’t even have a favorite network, she simply changes channels and stops wherever she sees news. We have tried to warn her, not only because of COVID-19, that not everything she sees can be trusted at first sight, but Read more

I am on board with this idea. I am also on board with bringing a bucket of popcorn and watch all sorts of forums and comment sections across the net getting ready for the battle between the crews of “Gods please don’t touch my precious Prime timeline cannon” versus “This is fun, who cares about cannon” versus “This is Read more

If he happens to have a script or screenplay or project stored somewhere, and it is found posthumously, you just might get your wish in a way. I wouldn’t put it past Japanese people to drive the the project “like Miyazaki san would have” if such a thing happened, effectively bringing his workstyle back from the dead.

Based on the clips that have been released so far, this Horde Prime fellow is striking me as White-Diamond-level creepy/terrifying. His moves are so coldly calculated... Calling Catra fresh out of reviewing Hordak’s memories?  That means he knows how backstabbing she can be.  The whole dialogue felt like a thinly Read more

No, soldiers and healthcare workers are not the same. And I don’t advocate war if that’s what you mean to tell me. I used war as an example of how whatever is considered “ethical” at any given moment in history is also subject to the circumstances of the moment. My intention was no more than that.

And I say “we” as a Read more

I’d argue that war is always unethical in the sense that it unequivocally involves a cost in human life, yet we humans often go to war, and during wartime, we kill in the name of a given cause, often citing the greater good as a justification, thus the ethics of war time are radically different than those during peace Read more

I see your point.  Still, if theaters do nothing, the very reasons you stated are a one-way street to bankruptcy.  They can’t open right now, so they either figure out a business model that works, or they go the way of the dodo.  The one thing they have in their favor is the rights to show new movies first, so how do Read more

I think it would be prohibitively expensive, suicidal even, for cinemas to create their own streaming platform, and not just because it is expensive as hell to do. Cinemas today (as in three months ago) don’t sell movies. They sell the experience of leaving your house, watching the movie in a big screen you can’t have Read more

Yes, I think they should, temporarily, as a way to show support. Let’s put it this way: If people didn’t like theaters, they’d be all closed virus or no virus. Not everyone owns a 65-inch TV and a surround sound system, so even in the Netflix world, there’s room for the theater experience, and when this is over, Read more
