Re: The Boys

In classic comic book settings, the people who happen to get powers are, relatively often, people who can be strong and courageous and selfless enough to be heroes. I like that. It's a noble, aspirational, optimistic view of humanity. In The Boys, heroes are victims of a manipulative institution see...

Re: The Boys

There were things I didn't like about the series, but overall... WOW. It's very black-pilled, and OF COURSE the villain is a corporation capitalizing on superheroes... but I thought it was a good story, well told. Looking forward to the second season. If I could snap my fingers and make things happe...

Re: Dresdenverse- is parkour a magic word?

I'm pretty sure it's just Dresden being aggressively goofy.

Re: Avengers End Game

There were lots of cheers in the theater, but a few moments where everyone audibly groaned and heckled. Good movie, but not on the level of Infinity War. Didn't have that level of emotional impact.

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

Really though, it can best said about the complainers, "If you think that comics shouldn't be political, what you're really saying is that you deeply regret that you've grown up to become the kind of person your favourite comic book character would punch in the face." Said by idiots who v...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

There used to be a button you could click saying "Not Interested," along with one that said you WERE interested. There was a percentage displayed of how many respondants were interested in seeing it. This was, of course, heavily weighted in favor of the movie, because most of the time, yo...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

The media did a bad job. They called it "review bombing" when there were no reviews. People were just using the "Not Interested In Seeing This Movie" function on the site as intended. There is no evidence of brigading. Just a lot of people making the decision Disney didn't want ...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

What type of product? Superhero movies? What about this movie is so objectionable that makes it so that you don't want to see further movies of a type you enjoy? BAD movies. Unimaginative, formulaic movies. Movies full of plot holes. Boring movies that drag. Movies featuring poorly cast actors who ...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

I've heard reports of empty theaters, and now I'm reading about record-breaking ticket sales. That's odd.

Regardless, if this movie can be interpreted as a success for Marvel, then Marvel will continue making this kind of product. Therefore, I'm out. I'm done.

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

I may have said this before but I'll say it again anyway, the movie will no doubt be successful but as we've seen with previous movies such as Black Panther box office success doesn't necessarily equate with quality. I dunno. There is a lot less excitement for this movie than for Black Panther in t...

Re: Captain Marvel MCU

I used to like Carol back when she was Warbird but since the first Civil War I've come to like her less and less. The MCU version seem to be a combination of all the worst aspects of comic book Carol. Not only does it look like she's going to be 'Captain Marry-Sue' she's the embodiment of 'Female c...

Re: Jab’s Builds (Terra! Supergirls! Kyle Rayner! Mr. Twister!)

Also, my favorite Batman versus Deathstroke battle also sums up how I feel a fight between them would go. Slade has an clear physical advantage over Bruce, such that anytime Bruce tries to directly compete, Slade wins. Slade is able to outrun Bruce's batarang toss, knock Bruce out of the air, etc. ...

Re: Captain Marvel, Jr.

This will forever strike me as just incredibly odd. It's just weird how some writers will just decide certain things about a character without giving it much rational thought. Gail Simone did something similar a long time ago on another board, where she chimed in about the relative powerlevels of S...
