Re: The Last Jedi, possibly solved

I finally saw this movie on Netflix yesterday.

I enjoyed it. It was a nice movie.

Re: Transformers Generations Power Of The Primes.

I didn't like the name change either. Slug doesn't fit the character at all. They should have chosen something else.

Why is the triceratops Slug instead of Slag?
It was changed because Slag is a an obcene word in the UK.

I'm not defending it. Just stating why Hasbro changed it many years ago.

Transformers Generations Power Of The Primes.

I managed to get a complete set of all new Dinobots toys. This has been the first full set of the original Dinobots released since the 80's. But they also include a feature that has been begged for by Transformers fans since Transformers The Movie. They combine! Volcanicus is the name of the combine...

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

There has always been more to Jean Grey than the Phoenix. She has a ton of story potential that hasn't really been tapped. Because the writers treated her as secondary at best. She was always supposed to be the heart and conscience of the X-Men. That's a vital role. Not a secondary one. It makes her...

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

You wanna know why they did that?Now,mind,this is just a rumor i heard,so take all this for the grain of salt it's worth........ CBR's parent company got bought out by Disney,who practically forced them to throw Marvel under the bus.An exec @ CBR got mad 'bout it and threw Star Wars under the wheel...

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

I paid for Phoenix Resurrection: The Return Of jean Grey though the online comic book store I get my books through now. Well every week of release of that series, CBR.com shamelessly spoiled literally every issue the day each came out. And it genuinely made me angry at them. Because they ruined my r...

Re: DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

The other obsession that DC has that is annoying to the extreme is: Jack Kirby's Fourth World characters. There is no time in which they are not ever-present. They are always seeing use somewhere in DC's books. It's a nonstop onslaught. The writers act like they have no other characters to write sto...

Re: DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

I can see where a large number of people dislike it,h-e-double hockeysticks i even understand why they do,but i will play this much of a Devil's Advocate for DC; their at least trying to make it an intresting story instead of just dumping them in already established like Marvel would've.....

DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

DC merging Watchmen into the main DC Universe only elicits one response from me. That I will take my money and spend it elsewhere. I do not like Watchmen. I never have. It is not the type of story I find entertaining. And its influence has become ever-present in modern comics. To the point that it i...

Re: First Strike: A Hasbro Comic Book Event

I heard about the Sitterson mess long after I ordered the first two issues of Scarlett's Strike Force. And I had really been looking forwaard to that book. Because I like the team of characters. The people who lose out with the book's cancellation are the ones who were primed to buy it. It's the fan...

Re: First Strike: A Hasbro Comic Book Event

That sounds depressing. IDW in general hasn't been overly impressing me with their crossover setting. I love the concept, but Revolution was overall "okay", as opposed to the fun/awesome of the He-Man/ThunderCats or Future Quest crossovers. I followed Revolution. And I liked it well enough. It crea...

Re: First Strike: A Hasbro Comic Book Event

Wait, what hero did they turn into a villain? I haven't read the book yet, but I looked up a synopsis and I don't see any heroes becoming villains. Joe "G.I. Joe" Colton himself was revealed just before First Strike started to be the Baron Ironblood. The very founder of G.I. Joe was revealed to be ...

Netflix's Death Note

Out of morbid curiousity, I watched this movie. It is the american adaptation of Death Note. The series of Japanese live action movies I purchased years ago. And greatly enjoyed. This movie? This movie suffers all of the problems with an americanization of a foreign property. They went for more gore...
