I’ve felt for some time that SBC could be a competent if not quite good serious actor if given the opportunity (I think that’s true for most good comedic actors since comedy is a hell of a lot harder than drama)

Lincoln warned us not to believe anything you read on the web.

No one complained about Season 8 because of the visual effects being lacking. So how about we just keep this comments section positive, since it's celebrating the pretty incredible technical work this team accomplished? There are a million other places where you can complain about the writing.

Agreed. I was jut thinking the other day that The Boys is less a critique of superheroes and more an evisceration of comic book companies.

I watched the first episode last night and to my surprise it was actually pretty good.

Yeah most people seem to forget that The Bronze Age of Comics, which arguably began with ASM #121 in 1973 and ended in 1985 with Crisis on Infinite Earths, DKR, and Watchmen, ever happened.

For comic book fans, the idea that superheroes might not be paragons of virtue hasn’t been novel since 1986, when Frank Miller’s scripts for The Dark Knight Returns deconstructed Batman and Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ Watchmen created a superhero universe populated by deeply flawed humans (powers notwithstanding).”

Box office records are a deeply weird way of measuring how many people watched a movie. It never would have been difficult to track “tickets sold” if that’s something they actually wanted to do.

The fact that anybody cares a lot about box office records unadjusted for inflation is weird to me.

It’s pretty good. Personally I don’t really dig the animation, but the stories are very enjoyable.

Marvel: Infinity War is the most ambitious crossover of all time.

He’s that shitty trifecta of arrogant, dismissive and thin-skinned.

I have no opinion of his stand-up (apparently not missing much), but him and Colin Jost had no chemistry when they first started Weekend Update and Che was real bad at reading his lines.
