Re: Star Wars

That helmet looks silly and the realization that it does nothing but change his voice for no reason undermines the character. I mean, emulating Darth Vader is fine as a character trait and all but wearing a voice changer helmet to do so is Spaceballs shit. The mask, voice changer included, makes se...

Hello, Zeak! :w00t: It's always nice to see familiar faces from the old days. Glad things are going mostly well for you. You should stay around a while.

Re: Star Wars

The next season of Rebels will be the final season, as many expected. Sad to see it end, but also glad that it'll get a proper ending unlike Clone Wars. Dave Filoni teased an image of a character Warwick Davis will be voicing, Rukh. Those of you familiar with Legends will know that... Rukh was a bod...

Re: Star Wars

Meh, the teaser screams "be hyped by some vague and fast cuts of cool scenes" too much. That's what teasers are. You already know the fan boys are going nuts analyzing each and every frame. We'll get more plot details in the second trailer prior to the film's release. I've been watching S...

Re: Superhero Films & TV

Guardians is the primary culprit. It works really well with GotG2, given Star Lord's backstory as well as the overall tone of the franchise; Fox on the Run has got to be one of the best fits of any of these trailers of the style. The usage of Credence Clearwater Revival and the Animals also made se...

Re: Superhero Films & TV

I want to go see the movie just for the Hulk part. Side note: I'm getting really tired of this trend over the last year or two of using throwback 60s, 70s and 80s hits in film trailers. They make for really fun trailers, but the novelty is wearing off fast because they literally use it everywhere no...

Re: Hollywood's "Ghost in the Shell"

I saw the movie the other day and I enjoyed it just fine. The whitewashing wasn't a big deal, and I thought it was balanced quite well by the abundance of other cultures clashed together within the city. I even thought the twist was appropriate for what they were working with (it wouldn't have reall...

Re: Best boy

Kaworu is an Angel designed to obliterate Shinji's psyche, a task he performs with great efficacy. He is "best boy" if your criterion is weaponized affection; Yes. Everyone is using their own arbitrary standards for best boy, and I would argue that each of the male characters is "bes...

Re: Best boy

As much as I despise the character, Kaworu is obviously best boy. I'm surprised no one else has brought him up yet. Given the Christ associations and such, he's the closest thing there is to "perfect". Wasn't the original intention of the character supposed to be everything that Shinji was...

Did you seriously not catch any political commentary in Logan, because it was most definitely there. From the issues of immigration and the current refu...

Re: Superhero Films & TV

The Dark Knight is a legit good movie. It would be as loved today as it was a decade ago for being highly entertaining as an action flick, as well as being smart and philosophical as a character study. This may be anecdotal, but I've seen tons of people compare Logan as being the 'TDK for X-Men movi...

Haters gonna hate. You can't be everything to everyone, and there's going to be things you like that others don't. That is the nature of individuality.

Re: Star Wars

Given the unique relationship between Maul and Ezra, as well as their connection with the holocrons, I'd say it was pretty necessary to have Ezra involved somehow, even if he was sidelined. Ezra needed to be rid of his connection with Maul. Anyone else catch the reference to TPM and Qui Gon Jinn's f...

Re: Anyone else feel dislike towards EoE nowadays?

I love EoE. Sometimes I'll simply throw it on without having watched the series immediately prior. The emotional message of it all really speaks to me, even to this day (though I admit, it's been some time since I've viewed it; my copy is currently stored upstate at my father's place). The original ...
