  1. "Immigrant Song" in the teaser trailer for Thor Ragnarok is probably my all-time favorite use of licensed music in a superhero movie. After that, it'd be a toss up between the Pump Panel remix of New Order's "Confusion" at the beginning of Blade and the Jackson 5's "I Want You Back" at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy.
  2. Good Omens. I'm two episodes in and loving it. Damn Netflix for bowing to pressure from watchdog groups and refusing to give it a second season!
  3. His having already seduced them previously was probably a pretty effective obstacle, though.
  4. If for no other reason, this movie is going to give me a laugh when the ComicsGate types start whining about social justice warriors betraying the devoted Eternals fanbase by gender-flipping treasured characters like Ajak and Sprite, or making Kingo and the Forgotten One people of color.
  5. Hmm, but how many repair crews would he put out of work by doing his thing so quickly and cheaply? And we all know who's behind construction work in big cities...
  6. Yeah, and while the White Witch normally has versatile magic powers that are quite limited in scope, there have been periods where you'd probably need a 500+-point VPP to depict them.
  7. Does... Batgirl have Batman's face printed on the thighs of her outfit?
  8. Pre-2000, I'd have placed the Hulk above the X-Men in the popular consciousness. His TV show got him a LOT more name recognition than any amount of comics, and arguably he was still more recognizable than all of them except Wolverine after the X-Men movies.
  9. I'll second all of those except Hackers.
  10. Ripley in Alien was originally written as a male character, and I think just about all that was changed was the first name and pronouns. The trick to writing a strong woman is to write a strong person, not just a collection of macho cliches. Gender isn't necessarily important to doing so if the character is three-dimensional and engaging.
  11. Justice League was my immediate thought, but since someone else has mentioned it I thought I'd dig a little deeper. Hot Pursuit. 7% RT score. I genuinely liked the antics of Reese Witherspoon's and Sofia Vergara's characters. I particularly enjoyed the running joke of news reports about them in which Vergara's character kept getting older and Witherspoon's kept getting shorter. Plus, Rob Kazinsky got naked. Vinnie Jones' best role is in Galavant. He sings!
  12. Clearly, she's a super-villain who can hit her enemies with accelerated time while keeping herself young.
  13. The Feedback Limitation on the build I posted above means the power doesn't prevent the character from being affected by the attack, it just also hits the attacker with it.
