  1. I liked the movie well enough. Ben Affleck did a killer job as Batman and even an older Bruce Wayne. Lex manipulated and was smarter than everyone. Doomsday should have been saved. Luthor in jail but with the scene intact of him putting Zod in the water. This leads to a solo Superman flick where Lex escapes prison and releases him. That way we would have gotten solo Wonder Woman and Superman flick and Batman gets this movie and Suicide Squad to have some background on at least three of the members. Then at the end of Doomsday Lex accidentally activates a beacon in the ship which Darkseid is shown in an after credits scene picking up.I say accidentally because Lex at this point is not wanting to destroy Earth or the people on it. Leave this movie more or less how it is. Just with Diana leaving on the plane and the 20 minutes of doomsday and funeral replaced by Lex in prison, superman helping rebuild the Senate building and Alfred and Batman building information on the other 4 possible members. That way in Justice League, Bruce can gather all of them because he has been keeping track of them. And this went on a tangent... Oh well still liked it enough. More of a slow burn compared to Marvel flicks and I liked the atmosphere.
  2. [Spoilers] EP601

    I am just over here waiting for them to address the Immortal Bandit running around..
  3. I don't think it will be an all out attack. I wonder if we'll see the captives seriously injured or killed then left outside the gates. Since the whole season has kind of revolved around when to kill and such. Leaving the captives injured on the ground with walkers decending seems like a good way to end it.
  4. At her stage it would be pointless. No teeth, no nails. The most it could attempt to do his poke against her but even then it's so tiny. Unless having the rotting fetus in her causes massive infection.
  5. Also maybe the mistake you're making the mistake of letting the skin color of a character be the one you identify with. I liked Tyrese the most. Identified with him the most.
  6. Why can't I delete this quote when I reply on my phone? Blacks, gay's, Asians, etc.. all plot armored please. We need to ensure we don't use any trope ever.
  7. Daredevil series 2: spoiler thread

    Finished it. I liked it for the most part. Jon Berthnal's Punisher was as brutal and sympathetic as the character can get. Certain plots were underdeveloped/underutilized. I would have preferred the Blacksmith plot being carried over to a solo series. Even to the point of the ship exploding being the last of Frank we see in this season. And they nailed the Punisher.. Even his pain tolerance was subtly portrayed. The amount of damage done to him and he just kept on trucking. Good season over all. Would have preferred the Hand being more distinct than a bunch of Ninja's. Just felt overly cliche.

  9. Star Wars Episode VII THE SPOILERS AWAKEN

    Okay now that I am on my computer I can type out my thoughts. It was a pretty good film. I liked it, the action looked more real than the prequels and I laughed at most of the jokes. I enjoyed it but I am critical of movies that I both like and dislike. This movie has wasted potential. The cast for the most part is great and they mostly do a great job. But the plot to me suffers because it becomes A New Hope reboot over paying a homage. We can argue this all day but homages are great when they aren't most of the movie. Hero knows they will be captured hides important data on droid. Droid is found coincidentally by someone who has a connection in the story. Captured hero is freed by not-quite-a stormtrooper Heroes escape on the Millenium Falcon Hero is given lightsaber part way through film. Heroes skirmish with villain and lose someone important in one way or another. Villains have super weapon that destroys an important planet. Heroes have inside info how to destroy super weapon. Against all odds super weapon is destroyed. Yes there are differences but this movie suffers because it switches objectives 2/3s of the way through. If you were to take the plot of all the movies of OT it more or less goes like this: A rag-tag group of heroes uses stolen plans to attack and destroy the enemy superweapon. The villains retaliate for the destruction. In defeat the heroes both try to hide out and learn new ways to defeat the villain. They find themselves at their lowest points. Having regrouped and grown as people the heroes make a list ditch effort to finish off their enemy for good. Force Awakens: Heroes are looking for Luke Skywalker but then realize there is a new super weapon and need to destroy it on the fly. The whole movie could have been the search for Luke Skywalker with fights and chase scenes. Can anyone here say they would have been dissatisfied if that had been the movie? Heck most of the movie was exactly that and it made it enjoyable. Heck without the super weapon plot it would have made more sense. We see how strong Kylo Ren is with his force mental abilities. Imagine if instead of a super weapon we had Snoke controlling large swaths of the population with force powers? Or at least enough to make the Empire/First Order a viable threat? I mean honestly the Empire has been effectively messed up twice now yet they are still seemingly as strong if not arguably stronger than before. Snoke is in control of the Republic through sheer darkside and has the Rebels on the run again. They are obviously looking for Luke because he's the strongest light side user anyone knows. The dark side wants to kill Luke because he is the only threat Snoke faces. Heck this could even lead to Ren being a redeemable character who was mentally controlled by Snoke when he did the thing. And there's the movie and we can plug in most of the things that happen after the Starkiller reveal into that story line that we like. I didn't dislike the movie and I enjoyed a lot of it. I particularly liked Kylo Rens struggle. He was a very human villain. It was pretty awesome and I remember taking a moment after he stopped Poe's blaster shot in mid air. I never felt he faltered even with the mask off. Removing the mask simply humanized him. I like the idea of Rey being mind wiped. I thought of that the moment she started being strong in the force. I don't hope she is anyone's kid though. I'm sorry but after all the coincidences of plot in the other six can we get a non-family tie in? I liked the idea of Luke, Han and Leia being split and separated by Ren's switch. It's rather believable and would feed better into a plot of a resurgence of the Empire. The three biggest heroes from the last war are suddenly torn apart by a close event? That would weaken the republic greatly. I liked the idea of Finn being a stormtrooper switching sides. Though I didn't like how he was terrified of killing and battle to only then kill and fight so well on the other side. I think it dampened his arc a lot. At the end he did feel a bit more sidekick than a full fledged character in his own right. Though his ability to use a lightsaber probably comes from a latent force ability. I mean if we were to draw comparsions Luke-Rey force strong hero, probably going to be the one to bring down the Sith. Leia-Finn force latent hero Han-Po smart-ass pilot 3.5/5 for me. The camera work is pretty great, the CGI blends well with physical world and stunts and most of the characters are well done. I hope that the fanfare isn't as bad next flick. I kind of understand why it was in this one. I just wish a little bit that it wasn't. There was a lot of potential and I felt it was squandered for nostalgic feel.
  10. Star Wars Episode VII THE SPOILERS AWAKEN

    Finn was totally messed up. Oh man I don't like killing or fighting.. Oh well guess I have to kill to survive.. If he can change that implies they all can change. Not a bad movie overall though I would have liked some different plot points. Oh well.
  11. Westeros Battle Tournament 8

    What a terrible update...
  12. Are we getting a mobile skin?

    Is there a reason i see a bunch of japanese esque characters?
  13. Why doesn't matter. If everyone is infected then there is probably no cure. No vaccination. Knowing why does nothing to move the plot forward.
  14. Ray Donovan [SPOILERS]

    I like the more centralized plot of this season... It's nice that they can tell a story without it being Ray go here, go there, go there, go back, go here.. all in thirty minutes
  15. The Great Panic was an idea explored by World War Z
