  1. 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.
  2. Honestly, I've gotten a huge amount of use out of Champions in 3D.
  3. Atragon Game of Thrones Scanners The Human Vapor Secret of the Telegian Gorath
  4. 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!)
  5. 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?
  6. 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.
  7. X-Men: Dark Phoenix.....and it was actually pretty good.
  8. 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
  9. I just finished seeing it. It was a generally good and entertaining film. I thought they did a bit too much "name dropping" for the sake of nostalgia and Rodan and Mothra both get screwed in the screen time department...which is really a shame as the new Rodan design looks terrific. This won't displace any of my top five Godzilla films, but it is definitely in the top half of the series. I'll probably need to see it again to process it a bit more.
  10. Only a few more days for my most anticipated summer film!
  11. Success with general audiences means more big budget kaiju films....
  12. Early reviews are in...mostly positive. Let's hope it continues!
  13. In Avengers/JLA 4, Superman is able to use it to help defeat Krona. After the battle, he's no longer able to lift it. Thor says...." My father is stern, but not stupid. In times of need, certain worthy individuals are worthy of lifting it. " I imagine something like that taking place in the MCU version more or less.
  14. The Legion of Doom from the Challenge of the Superfriends TV show had villains of wildly varying power levels(and many of them were nerfed to make them less powerful). That said...you could use almost any villain from the CU as long as they can work with others on a semi regular basis: If you're looking for close analogs... Luther: Holocaust, Doctor Destroyer or Professor Muerte(I think the latter is the best choice). Brainiac: Interface Bizarro: Viperia Captain Cold: Frost or Icicle Solomon Grundy: Ogre (or perhaps Deadman Walkin' if you want to keep the undead theme) Cheetah: Pantera Riddler: Any of the bad guys from Dark Champions: The Animated Series would do. I'd probably pick Penny Dreadful. Scarecrow: Freakshow Gorilla Grodd: Ape X(or an evil Dr. Silverback if you want a more scientifically oriented bad guy) Giganta: Gargantua Sinestro: Galaxia Toyman: Black Harlequin Black Manta: Mantara is a close fit, but you could also use just about any aquatic themed villain that suits your fancy.
  15. I'd like.... A GREAT FF movie with a comic accurate Doom Namor movie(there's more to work with here than you might think...especially if you show him in various time periods. He also has cool foes.) A Hawkeye stand alone film with Hawkeye's REAL personality. Wonder Man I wouldn't mind a stab at Alpha Flight, The Thunderbolts, or Machine Man either
