    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    Very bad decision. I'd say that Cavill's casting was one of the best decisions Warner Bros made regarding their DC movies, probably eclipsed only by the Patty Jenkins and Gal Gadot hires. He's had the misfortune of being in movies that stumbled or outright fell, but none of that was due to the actor.

    TV characters you base game characters on.

    James Hong!
  3. Allan Heinberg, if I'm not mistaken.

    Okay, WTF was I thinking?

    Didn't she send serpents to poison him in his crib when he was an infant, too? Cosmetic Transform in the hands of someone modeled after a jealous goddess whose husband had a wandering eye suggests spoiling someone's looks to me. Maybe image inducers, or nanotech that doesn't do any real harm but makes hair fall out, features coarsen, skin go unpleasant colors/textures, etc.

    Senator John McCain Has Died

    I didn't always agree with Senator McCain, but he had my respect and admiration. The world's a poorer place without him in it.
  6. The first one was so evocative for me, I think it became a matter of diminishing returns as more stories were written.

    Jessica Jones on Netflix

    Consider alcoholics and their high tolerance to alcohol. It's the constant exposure that builds it.

    A Human Firewing

    I've got some inspiration to suggest for her look if you go the "like Firewing" route: https://www.popsugar.com/fashion/photo-gallery/23202769/image/23202789/Tilda-Swinton-Candy-Magazine

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    I've yet to see any evidence that Ruby Rose can act, but her personal life plays no role in my skepticism about casting her. My main thought was "well, this means she can't be cast as a DC character I have any interest in, so good."

    Foods for those that just don't care anymore

    All eight of those sound like they boil down to thin excuses for the writer's personal distaste for it. When I think of drinks that lead to terrible decisions, Fireball isn't on the list that tequila and Jägermeister have etched their names on with a blowtorch.

    Star Trek 4

    Also, why I was relatively happy when he took over the Star Wars franchise while loathing the first two Trek movies he did. (I didn't think the last one was awful, but it had almost none of the deeper meaning and philosophical exploration I associate with Star Trek).

    Should have kept Paul Rudd as Ant Man:

    What Have You Watched Recently?

    Annihilation. Really interesting, thought-provoking sci-fi movie for about 85% of its length that falls apart for me just before the end. Though I will admit that one of the scenes I didn't like featured the most powerful soundtrack composition I've heard since Close Encounters, and I've been hearing it echo in my head for the last two days.

    I have a dream. (and MAN was it wierd!)

    Had a weird dream last night about being back in college with the Ashmore twins as dorm-mates in some weird dystopian society that looked like it came from a Zack Snyder movie (urban blight, everything was gray or black and it was always night or so overcast as to be indistinguishable from same). There was a murder mystery mixed in, but I don't recall who it was that got killed or why college students were trying to solve it.

    The Coming Epic Failure of the DC Movie Universe

    He was never actually named onscreen, was he? Just summarily executed for shock value with no respects paid afterwards and zero connection to Clark Kent? I'm proceeding with the assumption that Jenny from Man of Steel is a gender-swapped version of the character until something different is said or shown in a movie theater.
