  1. Galaxy Quest. It's everything a good spoof should be. Alan Rickman steals the show, but not without some competition. Great all around.
  2. Scanners. To me, this is among the best "people with powers" movies ever made. Michael Ironside is also terrific in this.
  3. I'll second Mark Gruenwald and nominate John Buscema for his work on Conan and The Avengers and David Michelinie fof his work on Iron Man, Spider-man, and Aquaman.
  4. It's been mentioned several times already....Green Lantern. It was worth it for Mark Strong as Sinestro alone. In fact, had the entire movie been about Sinestro...I'd have been fine with that.
  5. I've upgraded a large number of villains to 6th ed..including all of the characters from Scourge from the Deep, Demons Rule, and Roadkill, along with a good chunk of characters from other books.
  6. The 4th ed VIPER sourcebook also had a villain who could turn into a dragon.
  7. Wasn't there a group of native American villains in Creatures of the Night...The Totems(?) or something to that effect? I think it's an idea that can be revisited...especially in our "get the hell out of my country" current MO.
  8. Generally liked it, but I hated the public revealing of Peter Parker. I like it when the heroes have to deal with their secret IDs, but the makers of the MCU apparently don't. Second cut scene on the surface seemed pointless, but lends itself to a lot of questions.
  9. Honestly, I've gotten a huge amount of use out of Champions in 3D.
  10. Atragon Game of Thrones Scanners The Human Vapor Secret of the Telegian Gorath
  11. I've used him as the comic relief he was intended to be. My biggest story with him so far is him gaining reality altering powers....somehow(must be all that Luck) and then attempting to marry all the superpowered women on the planet (thanks to a remark from one of the players muahahahahahahahahahaha!)
  12. I have to disagree here. I can name a number of kaiju movies that are good films. Mothra vs. Godzilla, Atragon, Matango, Rodan, The Mysterians, and Battle in Outer Space for starters. I mean...what do you consider a "good" film? All of these films boast excellent effects, casts, and scripts. These aren't elements of good films?
  13. Shin Gojira has the double problem of being boring and having an essentially lifeless Godzilla. I must protest your point on "terrible effects" comment. Do you truly expect a movie from 1954 to boast CGI? The effects were very comparable for other films of the time. The only films boasting better effects were those that had enough time and money in the budget for stop motion animation. This was not that common in the 50's.
  14. X-Men: Dark Phoenix.....and it was actually pretty good.
  15. My review on Facebook: Movie review: Godzilla; King of the Monsters(2019). So it is finally here...the latest Godzilla film made in Hollywood. Does it live up to the hype of the admittedly awesome trailers. Well....yes and no. First off, let's get this out of the way. This movie does not surpass the Golden Era of kaiju movies(those made before 1975). They were a product of the time, place and circumstances in which they were made. They will never be duplicated. Okay Rob, but for us casual viewers, is it worth seeing? Sure. It generally has that fun popcorn movie feel and the movie for the most part entertains. The Good: The monsters all look great and are truly impressive on the big screen(especially in IMAX): The soundtrack is appropriately epic and features some of the themes from the original Japanese kaiju movies: Rodan's intro is the standout scene in the film and is truly spectacular. The Bad: The script is fairly weak as are the all the human characters. And before you get all in my face about how kaiju movies are all about the monsters...I'll simply answer by saying the best kaiju movies have both interesting humans and monsters. The script definitely feels like a "plot by committee". I swear that Charles Dance was hired just so he can utter "Long Live the King". He's suitably menacing but his character is written so paper thin that it is hard for you care. Not nearly enough Rodan and Mothra. It's truly a shame as the design work on both was great. The Ugly: As usual in Hollywood films these days, all the characters have to have quips and one liners. Also as usual, most of the time they're not very funny. Rodan and Ghidorah don't have their original roars. Why use iconic monsters if you're not going to use the elements that made them iconic? The monsters don't really wreck anything. You have a bunch of monsters and a huge Hollywood budget and we see no city destruction scenes. We get a background shot of a destroyed Washington DC(used in the trailer), but we see none of it happen. So you're going to deny us seeing King Ghidorah wipe out The White house? WTF? Even 1968's Destroy All Monsters...with its miniscule budget...treated us to world landmarks being destroyed and a great all out attack on Tokyo. Here....nothing. Unforgivable. It makes the film feel less epic than the script is trying to tell us it is. Overall, worth seeing, but it won't change anyone's mind about monster films. Out of the 30 odd Godzilla films, this sits firmly in the middle. Nothing embarrassing and for the most part entertaining, but nothing to write home about either. Grade for monster fans: B- Everyone else: C
