    I didn't think I'd ever appreciate the first 2 either. THen came the Last Jedi.
  4. Today
  5. For me, this group of Avengers is what comes to mind when I think of the team--Avengers Classic: Thor Iron Man (even though I really don't care for the character at all) Captain America Vision Scarlet Witch Hawkeye Wasp
  6. Was trying to keep it down to five members, same as the original comic Avengers.
  7. No Tara or the Doctor that started all of it? CES

    Watched the Incredibles 2. It was a blast. Favorite parts were Jack Jack versus the burglar, and the theft of the incredimoble. CES

    What "Pulp" have you read lately ?

    I recently got "The Blood And Thunder Guide To Pulp Fiction" by Ed Hulse. It seems to be geared towards the collector but has some useful appendices with a list of "Notable Books About The Pulps",, "Small Press Publications Specialising In Pulp Reprints", and "Must Have Anthologies Of Pulp Fiction" (Murania press. 2013).

    Foswell Syndrome

    Foxbat (secret ID: Freddy Foswell) has the Psychological Complication "Thinks He's Living In A Comic Book (VC,Total)" and acts accordingly, so he would be kind of like Deadpool, I guess. What if this was a recognized form of dementia in a superhero universe? I've made it as such in my current Champions campaign and named it "Foswell Syndrome" in his honor.

    Worst action movie clichés

    Oh and while we are talking movie cliches I would like to recommend "The Bigger Little Book Of Hollywood movie Cliches" by the late Roger Ebert.

    Worst action movie clichés

    I have to agree with this one. You would think that the hero would at least dispose of the guns ammunition, just in case the mook regains conciousness and the hero needs to come back past him .

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    In my childhood, my parents drove the family to the drive in when this movie was on. I think they believed something else would be playing. My mother asked the same question ("what were they thinking?") and my father suggested she figure it out if it bothered her so much. It seemed like a challenge, so I gave it a shot. The original Broadway musical was Lerner and Loewe; Paddy Chayefsky was hired to write it; Joshua Logan was brought on to direct it; Lee Marvin had joined the cast. That's a handful of Tony's and a handful of Oscar's, so Hollywood figured they didn't have to do a good job on this film to make money at it. What did I watch? Scared Stiff I was in a mood that suggested I avoid thinking too hard.

    for two or three years now, it's been the general assumption that the Blazers want McCollum gone and really, really want to trade him for a "more valuable" piece. But McCollum is desirable, to the point that if Portland really wanted to unload him them would get no shortage of takers. But they haven't traded him. Is it possible, just mildly possible, that they might actually want to keep him around?

    Paint Your Wagon -- One wonders what was going through the minds of the studio executives at Paramount who approved this. A musical western with three leads who couldn't really sing (though I have a soft spot for Lee Marvin's "I Was Born Under a Wandering Star"). Surprisingly enjoyable. (Amazon Prime) Batman and Harley Quinn -- Batman, Nightwing, and Harley Quinn have to team up to stop Poison Ivy from turning everyone into plant people. For me, it was one of the few missteps by Bruce Timm, and felt a little flat. (Amazon Prime)

    Who Is Your All-Time Avengers All-Star Team?

    I said there was a catch. Ok, let me try again and I'll make sure to only use characters that were officially Avengers but never Defenders. Let's see, we need a leader with brains AND the ability to survive long enough to impart his plan to the rest of the team, so, Mr. Fantastic. Now we've got to have some pure muscle, let's add The Thing. Then we'll need some characters that can infiltrate, hit hard from a distance, tank some damage and, oh yeah, fly, so let's throw in the Storm siblings, Sue and Johnny. OK, now... wait... I did it again. Never mind, I'll just put down my favorite characters: Henry Pym (yes, the one in the lab coat) Moon Knight Dazzler Machine Man Mr. Immortal Jack of Hearts

    The more the new/recent Star Wars films go on, the more I appreciate the orginal.
  21. Me too. But I don't know where I'm going to find that very often these days. Especially as a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and superheroes. Even movies that others have praised for having those qualities (Deadpool, Logan, Arrival) left me entertained but not exactly overwhelmed. But that's about all that I can really expect, what with the way movies are made and all. I've learned to be realistic about these things, and so I can usually find enough to like about the MCU movies to consider my two hours well spent, even if I don't always feel like singing their praises from a mountain top. I can't say the same about DCEU movies, or sci-fi movies in general these days.

    '17-18 NBA Thread

    Well did find an article on espn.com on possible Leonard trades, as for my takes (this possibly was done before draft) 1. LA Lakers for Deng, Kuzma and Ball (Magic getting a little bit Lauvergne) Uh, no. Popovich is not going to deal with LaVar Ball, just no. If you switch out Ball for Ingram then that could work. 2. Philadelphia with Derrick White for Robert Covington, Markelle Fultz, and a pick Unless they can get Leonard to stay long-term, might not be worth it for Philly really. Leonard would most certainly be valuable, but Covington is a good fit for Philly's style in my opinion. Get Leonard for several years worth it. For 1-2 years not so much. They had also had Portland essentially for McCollum (be interested to see Enforcer's input) and a couple of option with the Celtics (one for Irving as a keypiece, the other with Hayward and another guy I forgot-possibly Rozier). Celtics would be a good fit, thinking about, in a lot of ways. I'd say Lakers and Celtics are the best ideas I've heard (though I haven't heard it mention much but Cleveland would be good if LeBron is out, if they can find another solid option to join Cleveland-a healthy Cousins?). In my opinion Philly would be better finding that one more solid player through FA (or if they do make a trade, more for a guard). And I don't think LeBron would be an optimal fit for Philly with Ben Simmons already there. George would fit more seamlessly if you want a star forward in FA.

    And Solo's lack of success might be a shame in one way. THe 2 people I did talk thought it was an average-ish movie. It seems to have suffered the repercussion for the Last Jedi being so damn awful

    Well, we don't need he who shall not be named having anything more to do with writing-directing after Last Jedi. Has he done anything of note other than Looper? (and I suspect he lucked himself into that success)
