Re: BriarThrone Reviews: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS)

But yeah, in episodes 1-6 and Rogue One, we never hear people say things like "damn!" or "shit!" or "Did you see that?! Did you see that?! That's what I'm talkin 'bout!" , or even things like "that's cool". It's just weird to hear phrases like that in Star Wars when you have several movies establish...

Re: BriarThrone Reviews: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS)

To me using 'hell' as an expletive makes more sense for Star Wars than referring to a metaphysical location. Star Wars has shown that the various cultures do have their own philosophies and religions. Even the Jedi acknowledge that when they speak of "The Will of the Force", they speak of it as a m...

Re: BriarThrone Reviews: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS)

Right, but it was actually referncing Hell the metaphysical location, not using Hell as an expletive.

Re: Jab's Builds! (Slashfang! Necrosan! Gargoyles! Goliath! Brooklyn!)

Thinking about it, it's kind of hard to figure out what an "average" gargoyle is in terms of strength. Goliath is considered powerful even by gargoyle standards, so he's definitely not standard. There were gargoyles with a similar build, such as Leo, Kai and possibly even Broadway when he fully matu...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Chaos! Blizzard! Slashfang! Necrosan! Gargoyles!)

Goliath was an interesting leader in that, while having most of the qualities of the typical 80s leader like Optimus Prime, Goliath was also flawed in many respects. He could lose his temper, be stuborn about certain things, made mistakes, etc. But he was also damned clever, as his rivalry with Xana...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Chaos! Blizzard! Slashfang! Necrosan! Gargoyles!)

Coming up with a top 10-20 list of animated series would be tough for me, but if I stuck to strictly western series, it would likely include: Gargoyles Avatar: The Last Airbender Batman TAS Justice League / JLU The Batman Batman - The Brave and the Bold Avengers : Earths Mightiest Heroes The Spiral ...

Re: Bendis moving to DC

So they're going to give Bendis a Superman book? The guy who is best at writing talking heads, flawed protagonists and street level adventures is going to handle . . . SUPERMAN? Why not put him on a Batman book or a new Outsiders book? Let him have his weird ragtag bunch of misfits series that he's ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Chaos! Blizzard! Slashfang! Necrosan! Gargoyles!)

Definitely looking forward to this. Gargoyles is definitely one of the best tv series (animated or not) ever, and probably my favorite television show of all time. I do agree that other shows have an edge on it in certain respects (better fight choreography, consistently better animation, better hum...

Re: DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

I think Veidt saved the world the only way he knew how- his plan was elaborate, and he didn't overly trust John- his plan was based around STOPPING him, as John's existence exacerbated global political problems. Well that's the thing: Adrian was WORKING with John. The work he'd done with John was t...

Re: DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

I was never really a fan of any of the Fawcet characters myself(thought their origins were all a little to "out there" for my personal tastes),but i was(and forevermore will be)a mega-fan of the Carlton heros(and in all honesty Booster Gold always struck me as a Carlton hero,anyway) And as a side-n...

Re: DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

Personally,i'd perfer it if DC gave this type of attention to their Carlton characters that Watchmen was supposedly modeled on..... I know, right? Bring back Capt. Atom as a legit military minded flying blaster/brick rather than the quasi-Dr. Manhattan they tried to turn him into several times, hav...

Re: DC's unhealthy Watchmen obsession.

I think that, on its own, Watchmen is a solid story, but it was designed to basically be self-contained. Having stuff take place before and after it, as well as integrating it into the larger DC universe, contradicts the whole notion of it. I also didn't like it when people started trying to make he...

Re: Lead cast for Shazam! film.

I really hope all of the signs pointing to a Shazam film primarily inspired by the "Curse of Shazam" storyline prove to be incorrect, because to me at least, it would be a mistake. If you're going to introduce a version of Captain Marvel to a wide audience via a film, and claim that it's going to be...
