Re: Jab's Builds! (Orga! MUTOs! Gamera! Pacific Rim! Gipsy Danger!)

huh- one of the back-issues I got recently was a reprint of the issue where The Wasp marries Yellowjacket. Some interesting stuff: * This being the late 1960s, the heroes are still in the "they all know each other casually, but only meet at weddings" phase. But it's funny to think that the X-Men wer...

Re: The Box Office Topic

The thing is, the "All-Time" movie lists seem to ALL quote the recent releases as the all-time leaders, ignoring inflation entirely. You even need to find a different section of Box Office Mojo to find one that factors it in- the sidebar on every movie lists the film's placing in various headings, a...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Orga! MUTOs! Gamera! Pacific Rim! Gipsy Danger!)

Finishing up many of the Godzilla builds, I'm struck again at the reaction it got on here. I still kept it to a "Four-posts-a-day" routine since they're pretty simple builds and the information on, say, Baragon hasn't changed since 2011 when I last posted him, but people REALLY commented a lot aroun...

Re: The Box Office Topic

Yeah, inflation is a funny thing. It bugs me when people tout Lion King and Frozen as the All-Time Animated Films, when looking at Snow White renders the comparisons moot, when you judge inflation. Of course, older movies tended to accumulate their grosses via re-releasing to theatres every few year...

Re: Warhammer 40,000 (Warlord Titan!)

So are the Battle Titans only Forge World-type stuff? I don't think I've seen their like at the GW stores in my area. The use of flyers has definitely increased across the board, probably when they started building better "pegs/platforms" for them. Though they never took off as much in Fantasy, the ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Orga! MUTOs! Gamera! Pacific Rim! Gipsy Danger!)

I always liked this quote too: "There are things you can't fight - acts of God. You see a hurricane coming, you get out of the way. But when you're in a Jaeger, suddenly you can fight the hurricane. You can win." That's the interesting thing about the film, to me- I wasn't entranced by it, and was ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Zilla! Baragon! Orga! MUTOs! Gamera!)

You know, which how hard everyone else is acting in the movie,it makes me wonder if you couldn't just edit the scenes with the monster out and edit anything else in and it wouldn't make for a better movie. Off-topic, but I've always wanted to do this with the old Star Trek: The Animated Series ; Mo...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Zilla! Baragon! Orga! MUTOs! Gamera!)

Cloverfield did have two follow-up movies of sorts, 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Cloverfield Paradox , but I have no idea how they tie in to the original movie, if at all. From what myself and the rest of Weyland-Yutani(tm) can figure out,this is how they interconnect.....* brings out chalkboard and...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Zilla! Baragon! Orga! MUTOs! Gamera!)

*walks in and sits down, facing you, THE VIEWER* I'd like to talk about Gamera for a minute. I'm a big Gamera fan. I own all the movies with the exception of Gamera the Brave, which I intend to rectify as soon as I can. But Gamera.....Gamera had a place in my life at an early age. A place that led ...

Re: Jab's Rifts Builds (Dragon & Splugorth Juicers! Burster! Mind Melter! Crazy!)

Oh man- this next group was fun. I mean, the builds are simple and boring. But taking the piss out of Siembieda and his goofy OCC ideas will never not be funny to me :).

Pacific Rim

PACIFIC RIM: [/u] - Pacific Rim was a pretty kick-ass movie. While I wasn't in love with it like many others were, and I found the fight scenes a little too same-y and easily-won, it contained a lot of memorable scenes- more than you usually get in Big Dumb Action Movies. Featuring very few stars (...
