  1. Assuming the rest of the universe grows at the same rate as this pest-riden planet. He could have reduced it to 10% of course. So I reckon the imaginary Marvel Universe procreates at a slower rate. Maybe Thanos adjusted everyone's libido too! 😮
  2. I think 10/10 is justified. For this type of movie it's about as close to perfect as you are likely to get. Personally I never liked these "cosmic" team ups in the comics and up until now have not enjoyed the film equivalent. This one, unusually, managed to deliver on the hype. Given the huge number of characters they can't all get backstory but what we get is quality. They do well taking Thanos beyond the pantomime. The scenes with Gamora and the flashback to his home world combined with the decision to drop the "courting Death" idea produce a villain that is at least an understandable psychopath! On the acting side my MVP Award goes to Chris Hemsworth. His scenes with Rocket were excellent. Not many actors could deliver the jokes while retaining the underlying sadness. Awesome. And lastly I don't usually seen movies on their opening weekend but I was glad I went early to avoid the inevitable spoliers that will come. Marvel managed to surprise me and it's rare that a movie does that. And if I had made bets on which characters lived and died I would have lost all my money! Black Panther and Spiderman? No way could they be in any danger.

    If Douglas Adams was still alive I would expect him to edit his H2G2 script to say "a species so primitive they still think smartphones are a good idea."

    The Flash

    The silly thing about the jail time is not the courtroom shenanigans but the fact he was caught by police coming up the stairs to his apartment. That should have been plenty of time for post-speedforce Barry to move the body, clean the floors, remove any evidence and still be found watching TV when the police bust his door down.

    In the UK you can drink wine or beer in a restaurant at the age of 16 if you are with your family and they purchase it for you. I have always found it odd that America is still so puritanical about drinking. That at 19 you are not considered responsible enough to buy a beer but owning an automatic rifle is fine.
  6. I thought the LMD storyline was excellent. Current season ain't bad. Still not sure where they are going with it and I rarely like time travel stories. So there is that. It needs to acquire a direction imo. I miss Fitz :-(
  7. Yeah! Those #### recast Thor as a blonde! Gingerists :-(

  9. She goes on to say she would only be interested in directing a super hero movie if the hero had “really complex psychology”. Which suggests she has never seen a super hero movie.

    Traveller, anyone?

    We could go on ;-)

    Communication in Startrek is a little murky. They have face to face communication but sometimes it seems to take a while for that to be established. Which is an interesting game mechanic. They also drop bouys when in danger, which kind of suggests their instantaneous communication is dependent on their relay infrastructure. So might not be available when out in the wilds. Which again might be a good game mechanic.

    Wonder Woman

    I read that as "it was cool in Captain America, let's do that too."
  13. “If I calculate my own carbon footprint, that's a bummer,” Traer says. “But if I calculate it for Batman, things get interesting.” - I completely disagree ;-)

    Who wins Squirrel Girl vs Batman

    That's what I fail to see, any humour at all in it. Amusing superhero comics are very difficult to get right. Probably because of the built in absurdity of it all. Superheroes have to be played straight, even if played for laughs. Especially when played for laughs. That's probably why characters like this fall flat for me.
