  1. Watch, Watched, Watching: The Director's Cut

    I haven't seen the theatrical release in years and years. I personally like it more than the director's cut because it just gave the film more background, and more of a noire feeling to have the Harrison Ford voice overs. Have you seen both versions?
  2. Deadpool v SkullpoopL: Dawn of Spoilers

    I'll give you The Dark Night, but Unbreakable? First off, it is most certainly not a comic book movie.Secondly, it was a good movie the first time through. watchable the second time with the understanding of the twist, and then a total snoozefest any other viewing. This is not unlike many early M Night films. (I smell dead people.) To me, the best superhero movie ever made starred Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, and Margot Kidder, but I will freely admit it is for nostalgia reason. The first Richard Donner Superman movie was released when I was a kid, and I have never again captured that kind of magic in a movie theatre during a superhero movie. Objectively, I'm not sure it is top ten, but it most certainly is my number one.  Deadpool Doesn't break the top 5 on my list, but it most certainly was a fantastic movie, and one that I will be seeing multiple times.     post script... I hope no one takes offence to me bickering with Veltigar in this Entertainment subforum, I seem to be the Joe Bob Briggs to his Roger Ebert sometimes. As a personal note, I would like it to be known that I have a lot of respect for how he writes about and communicates his obvious love for cinema. I keep that respect, even when my mouth is agape because of how polar opposite our opinions are quite frequently. 
  3. Batman and Superman III : Batfleck Rises

    I don't think that looks much like the below picture at all... Like I said... Kevin Smith ate Robocop,
  4. Batman and Superman III : Batfleck Rises

     Also, one last comment here tonight. Whatever the hell they dressed Ben Affleck in to do this movie certainly doesn't look like Batman. It looks like Kevin Smith ate Robocop, 
  5. Batman and Superman III : Batfleck Rises

    Or, I don't know, Maybe make a counter proposal to Zod so as to teraform Mars, or another planet into Krypton so as to avoid a huge fight and save an entire race of beings at the same time...   Instead, you had a petulant, whiny, hipster Superman help destroy entire cities without once stopping to help the regular folk until he decided to kill his enemy. 
  6. Deadpool v SkullpoopL: Dawn of Spoilers

    Howard the Duck wasn't in the end (or finale) of the movie... He was in the epilogue (or post credit.)  Also, the entire cast of GoTG was spot on incredible in the thing. Especially Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesal, and Dave Bautista.Everyone was extremely likable and funny in the film.  I actually rate Deadpool as the second best comic book movie of the last two years behind only Guardians. It has taken over the number two spot from Ant Man for me.
  7. Deadpool v SkullpoopL: Dawn of Spoilers

    While you do have a point that some writers take the cheap and easy way out in R rated comedies, and Deadpool certainly didn't do this for the majority of its gags, you once again lose me when you talk about GoTG being "bad". The end of that movie featured one of the most hilarious sequences ever to be put in a comic book movie.  How dare you talk bad about the lead singer of Mouse Rat !!!!
  8.  Well, for the last three or four years, I have been working on a book series and a TV adaptation I have been calling "The Roadies". I just found out the name will be taken. I really hope this show is successful as it is about what I do for a living.  
  9. Watch, Watched, Watching: The Director's Cut

    If I gave 10 of my friends an infinite amount of time to guess the phrases and sentences that will come out of my mouth during my lifetime, this just might be the very last thing that they would guess.
  10. Deadpool v SkullpoopL: Dawn of Spoilers

     Just when I think that I am going to agree with you finally in one of your posts, you have to do something like this. Chris Pratt is comic gold, and GoTG was outstanding on a comic level. There was nothing at all mediocre about that movie.   Deadpool is very funny as well, but having far more content on the table because of the R rating gave it an easier road. When you get to make dick jokes and anal sex innuendos, you just don't have to be as creative to get a laugh. (Although the humor in Deadpool was creative as well as crude to be fair.) 
  11. Deadpool v SkullpoopL: Dawn of Spoilers

     I enjoyed it considerably more than I was thinking I was going to. I had really liked the marketing for the movie, but I had a feeling that it would have been the best part. Turns out, the movie itself was full of wit and charm from start to finish as well.   The Zambonii scene had me in the aisle laughing, and Morena Baccarin stole every scene she was in. It is for adults though... Don't take the kids.
  12. New Star Trek Series on CBS

    I love lens flare. I think they are delicious.
  13. Avatar 2 is still slated to go head to head with Episode 8 as far as I know.
  14. NFL Post-Superbowl L : Wheeling Off Into the Sunset

    I'll have it noted for the record that The Cowboys did not draft JFF...
  15. Hey, 

     I have recently done a fair bit of communicating with Jack Bauer24, and you were absolutely right to call me out for the tone that I had been taking with him. I just didn't realize that I was talking to a 15 year old kid that was doing his best to try and get along and talk about things that he was passionate about. I actually feel bad for some of my behavior. 

     The good news, is that his posts have significantly improved, and he is really starting to contribute. I have done my best to encourage him. In the future, I will pay closer attention to the first time you call me a bonehead about things.

    Hope you are having a fantastic day, and thanks again for keeping this place straight around here.
