Re: Hello again from JoshuaDunlow

Hey friends. Its been awhile, real life has been extremely hectic. I got evicted from my home, been battling my depression and stress. Plus I got a operation coming up in 11 days. I suffer in daily pain from a broken disc and my peripheral Neuropathy. So that's why I am rarely around, it puts a big...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Actually, you can listen to the audio of the incident right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hlMr8Z5-d98 Hey, I was wrong; I thought Ben Jacobs might have been shouting (not screaming, just raising his voice as we've ALL seen reporters do on multiple, multiple occasions when questioning politic...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Paul GIaforte plead guilty in Montana, where the assault took place, not D.C.; he admitted his initial account of the incident was a lie when audio surfaced AND eyewitnesses came forward, including Alicia Acosta of a Fox News affiliate. Giaforte and his campaign manager first claimed the reporter gr...

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

I'm also really disappointed with the nihilistic notion that set off Namor's apparent mad-on for the surface world: the idea that humans on a beach would just stand by and watch Atlantean children die. I know, commentary on how people will just watch as a beached dolphin or similar sea animal die f...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

The case DID "go to court", where Giaforte plead guilty to misdemeanor assault and was sentenced to community service and anger management therapy. Though I imagine he would have been more than capable of managing his "anger" if the reporter hadn't been considerably smaller than he was. Bullies and ...

Re: Daredevil Season 3 gets political

Journalists aren't victims in the modern era? While I fully realize A-list reporters and pundits in major markets command handsome salaries and perks, and certainly cache within the Beltway, the Coasts, and academia, there's another side to the argument: https://observer.com/2018/06/capital-gazette-...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Kronk! Yzma! Treasure Planet! Brother Bear! Enchanted! Giselle!)

Man, Disney's well really ran dry for awhile there after the Renaissance, up until Enchanted ; I've never even seen any of these, though I've read Atlantis and Treasure Planet are actually decent, if not memorable. But the others range from bland to bad, and just have me wondering how creative can n...

Re: Size Issues in RPGs

Probably over-complicating a bit. Sometimes as fans/gamers, we have to step back and remember that rules mechanics are just gross simulations of reality-and in genre games, a gross simulation of fictional stories. In M&M terms, Growth gives bonuses to STA, and giant-sized character and monsters usua...

Welcome back! You really do some terrific builds. Good to hear about positive developments in recent weeks. All my best!
Thanks, I try to come up with some interesting things.
I like the challenge of looking up the meanings of some of your character names in the dictionary!

Best ideas/performances from bad movies?

A question I've pondered lately, especially regarding superhero cinema, though it could apply to any "geek-culture" genre film (science fiction, fantasy, anime)-what concepts or characterizations (by a particular actor/actress) stand out as worth keeping canonically in otherwise badly-executed (or e...

Re: Jab's Builds! (Shan Yu! Tarzan! Jane! Queen La! Dinosaur! Atlantis!)

MUCH respect for Michael J Fox; he was struggling badly with Parkinson's during his really critically well-received guest runs/recurring star bits on Boston Legal and The Good Wife . And he mostly played against type both times, especially in the latter, where he portrayed an Alex P. Keaton-type who...

Re: The T-Verse (Earth 75): Beast Man & his Beastiary!

Welcome back T-Man! Thanks. Things have been interesting, to say the least, lately. I ended up gaining physical custody of my youngest daughter about a month ago in a surprising turn of events. There are things that still need to be done on the legal side but overall it has been a relatively smooth...

Re: Rumours: People want an all Female Avengers film

As opposed to many ensemble action/thriller/heist films where all the leads are male? The Expendables, Ghostbusters I-II, Oceans 11, 12, 13, LOTR ? I don't understand the seeming assumption of some here that averting the "default" which has held sway for so long automatically means other components ...

Re: Jab's Builds! (A Goofy Movie! DuckTales! Quasimodo! Esmeralda!)

Yeah, unfortunately for Ms. Moore, ALL the movies were she was THE lead (instead of being 2nd lead to a major male star like Tom Cruise or Michael Douglas) flat out flopped. And she took herself way seriously as an actress, despite very limited range. Then her intended comeback vehicle, the Charlie'...

Re: Rumours: People want an all Female Avengers film

I'm not above being wrong. So far, evidence has said no. But if Captain Marvel does well (and I'm talking Ant-Man level numbers), it may prove that it's time. We can't use Wonder Woman, simply because it's compared to the rest of the DC movies, and let's face it, that wasn't a high bar to clear. Ei...
