Re: Jab’s Builds! (Wreck It Ralph 2! Samurai Shodown- Yashamaru!)

Wait, how did Venelope get out of her game? Wasn't a huge part of the first movie the fact that she CAN'T leave her game because she is glitched? It's been too long since I've seen both- I couldn't tell you. To be honest, it feels like the time between movies made the writers kinda forget their own...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Dragon! Troll! Banshee! Wreck It Ralph 2!)

There's nothing wrong with wanting "MORE"- by those standards, then even Belle, Anna, and Ariel are villains. SURELY it's reasonable to be bored with life and want something more out of it. Not when doing so will potentially and literally destroy the world around her. They basically had to BS a way...

So I feel their situations are similar, except one was driven by selfishness (Turbo's desire for the spotlight) and one by simple desire for a different, more exciting life.
So they're both driven by selfishness, then.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (The Jersey Devil! Dragon! Troll! Banshee!)

It's just weird how WIR2 undermines the whole story of the first film. The first film was about the concept of "identity", about figuring out who you are, how you interact with people, how you communicate with each other and figuring out your obligations to other people. Ralph has a very important o...

Re: DC Comics rumored to have a new 5G Initiative

Kind of sad that this is the first time we've seen anyone attempt a Crisis on Infinite Earths adaptation. Granted for the sheer scope of the story you'd either need a direct to video animated film series easily 3 or 4 movies long, or a 13 episode 50 minute per episode Netflix series. Though if I was...

Re: "Guardians" Russian Superhero Flick

Not precisely a superhero film, but there was a low-budget urban-fantasy/horror/action film done back in 2010 called "Hellbinders" featuring Johnny Yong Bosch and Ray Park as part of a trio of supernatural demon fighters. The group includes a literally soulless John Wu style dual pistol wielding mer...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Ultra-Crazy! Blood Riders! Larhold Barbarians!)

And one more reason to love Carella - He gave Cyber-Knights a way to get more out of their iconic weapon. Well, assuming you don't do what I do and just give the Cyber-Knights the same damage progression as the Mind-Melter, but still! It's the thought that counts.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Jabberwock! The Jersey Devil! Dragon! Troll!)

Every time I see Grendel, I always flash back to an old cartoon called Mighty Max, where the titular Max recruited several other heroes from mythology and folklore to lead an assault against the series big bad, Skullmaster. Beowulf was one of their number. During the big fight, Max gets threatened b...

Re: Login

Nope, just failed again. Sigh. Damn. I'm honestly not sure what else to do. You're the only one I'm aware of having this issue, and the fixes I've got for similar issues don't seem to be working. It might be something on your end, but I'll keep looking into it. I'm genuinely sorry for the headache ...

And not remembering login issue is back. And of course my "fix" above does nothing. Sigh.
I'm going to try something that's worked in the past with similar issues. You should receive an e-mail shortly, follow the link in it and let me know if it fixes things.

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Destroyer 'Borg! Ultra-Crazy! Blood Riders!)

It seems like C.J. here really "got" Rifts in a way that even Kevin Siembieda didn't, and that Kevin might have been better off as the property owner and general idea guy (given he did produce iconic stuff like the Coalition, Glitter Boys and Cyber-Knights), while Carella would have been a good "det...

It's not a big deal, but I am having to login twice on my mobile to successfully login. The first time it says invalid form request. I haven't tried it on my Mac yet
Keep me posted. If it persists I may have a fix for that.

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

I'm honestly not sure how to feel about Feige being involved with Marvel Comics. I don't want the comics to be reflective of the movies for the most part, but if he's replacing guys like Joe Quesada and Jeph Loeb, I have to look at it as a positive thing. Overall I suppose the way I look at it is th...
