Yes, I think projectile weapons kick ass over plasma and heat ones. But hey, they must’ve have worked around hull design to make sure they are bullet proof.

I sure hope Pablo is the good guy here. I’m tired of seeing him as a traitor. Oops. Spoke too soon.

I came here to ask why Djimon Hounsou (Korath) hangs out with Lee Pace (Ronan) in GotG. Now I can shut my mouth. I am immensely satisfied with the explanation.

I thought (maybe I am wrong) that this was the same technology utilized by Zack Snyder with 300, then BVS that segueway to WW. But it was different thing altogether.

Dammit, Matt, I was avoiding the fact that I was born in 1969, when astronauts walked on the moon (and nowadays are subject to scrutiny) and the interwebs was yet to be conceived, although data transmission was already being used by prospectors in the jungle at 282kb. But I do love technology, even if I stick to my Read more

This is from a very, VERY reliable source: Jessica Chastain is actually Android 18 sent to find anybody with superpowers ad crush ‘em. You didn’t hear it from me.

Now, now, there’s no need to nit-pick this early (Did I just said that? What’s the point of having a discussion anyways, hee-hee!) I was working at TOEI when I got immersed and fell in love with manga and anime. Doubtless both version of Alita is close to my heart. Back then we were trying our own casting calls for a Read more

I dunno. When Wizard magazine was doing casting call, I voted Tico Torres as Wolverine, which says a lot about my picks, but Jackman was cast and it stuck, well and good. Maybe Jason could still do Lobo, and Aquaman at the same time? Not in the same movie, of course. No other actor with that height, build and looks Read more

And I loved the way Hiddleston played the bored rockstar, very much what Rice wanted for Lestat on her books but I’m avoiding the fact that Swinton is much too beautiful to be a monster. Maybe because the angel image she gave us stuck. But hey, remember Del Toro’s beautifully frightening winged blind Read more

This one is good, if you can ignore that the vampires are too beautiful, it was painful. But yes, monsters just the same.

Oh, and there’s a lot of hideousness masquerading as the good samaritan or the kindly person you thought you knew. Del Toro’s references can be jarring but yes, honest. With a monster you know where you stand. Mexico is not that to far removed from the Spanish-influenced Philippines. So I dig what he conjures with his Read more

This is turning out to be a good day for me. I mean, I picked up this book a year ago, and have re-read through it about 7 times already. The setting is entirely alien to me. The culture, the mythology. And it works for me, given that I have recommended this to a younger reader I know. But I don’t worry about the Read more

You made my day brighter, considering I was having a really, really bad one. Of course, goes without saying (and probably somebody already asked this question) but if Vader or, say, Kylo Ren picks up Rey’s light saber, will turn to red or green? Read more

So I guess, Roland didn’t even lose a finger somewhere in the movie?

Yup. peter’s been doing that since time immemorial. or at least as far as I can remember reading newspaper strips and comics.
