Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

...They DO want a positive Superman, though! That was one of the number one criticisms of the direction that Zach Snyder took Superman: they made the character an Objectivist-style hero, and it didn't fit with who he was. As for being justified in deciding immediately he's a threat, you're talking a...

Re: Superhero/Comic Based Films & Tv - Vol.2

Going through each of those versions, it's really hard to add anything to something so thorough, but: Burton's Batman is almost gleeful in how he kills people. Like, he kills a SHIT ton of people in the first movie (you know there was a lot of Joker minions in that Axis chemicals plant), and in the ...

Re: FML general thread [8]

he worst part is that my biological prime is behind me, my body will now steadily lose its functionality over the course of many decades. Good God, one foot in the grave already!

^ You've taken this argument very personally, Ray: you've inserted some personal attacks in there that I fail to see have any bearing on the discussion. That being said... ...Batman, as he exists now, is character that exists because of failures in the system. The system has failed, so someone steps...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

The property of Godzilla runs the gamut so widely, from dead-serious and almost horror to straight up batshit insane, it would be IMPOSSIBLE to fail at somehow merging Godzilla with any other property. There's, like...a Gojira for everything from drama to comedy.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

ABB: If all it took for a story to gain universal appeal was being well-written, than there are a lot of great writers today and throughout history that would like to have a word with you. By that same token, we live in a day and age where 50 Shades of Gray gets movie deals. It's a lottery. It's a l...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

It's a lottery: just because you can put all the effort possible into carefully crafting a story using the most bizarre or inane premise possible, doesn't mean it's going to be good. Or, if it's fucking amazing, it doesn't mean anyone is going to like it! You might be the only person who sees the br...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

A dorm, or a barracks: I mean, if they have to work for a paramilitary organization piloting robots, I can't see them necessarily living on their own (at least until an op-tempo has been established).

I think 'dorm mom' Misato would be precious in the best way.

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

You aren't obligated to write the story. And yet, you felt obligated to make a reply, and then mock everyone for not being able to follow up on that. And it's doubtful anyone would, because in context of the two stories you chose...it would probably be a shit story. That's how odds work: you might w...

Re: Internet toxicity (Social media, fandom shipping, etc)

Tumblr is sort of like a game of telephone, and things start getting reblogged and spread faster than they can be sourced. ...speaking of Tumblr, is there any way to actually scroll through all of your Tumblr followers? I haven't actually looked at that in a long time, and I've decided to scrub out ...

Re: Internet toxicity (Social media, fandom shipping, etc)

It's easy to get caught in that 'heat of the moment' demand to throw something out there. I've done it, too. Emotions are really a devil for us in that respect.

Re: Internet toxicity (Social media, fandom shipping, etc)

Bear in mind, a lot of that is being deliberately stoked. It's tough to grind down through the 'Russia meddling' issue without it becoming political, but the fact of the matter is...it's there. Those bots and false accounts sit on both ends of the spectrum, and it's not uncommon to find Russian bots...

Re: From Your Lips to the Author's Ears: Story Ideas

Because silvermoonlight challenged you to write a story . That's why we expected you to do it: you're claiming that it can be done, and you're insisting on it, so...show us. It's telling that you put it out there, act rather snidely towards us that we can't 'grasp' it, but then demonstrate that you,...

Re: FanFiction Requests/Recommendations/Discussion etc.

No that's never been done I think that would work if you made it steam punk/Victorian but in really serious, hence the Evangelions could look kind of horrible and creepy because there armour doesn't fit well enough so you see more of the alien underneath. The play on horror could be based on the ha...

Except there are some things where you're just asking for too much skill. I mean sure you can put mud in a stew, and you might make it work....

Re: Internet toxicity (Social media, fandom shipping, etc)

Some things never die on the Internet, and it's why you have to be so careful in what you post. It's what makes Facebook so insane to me: people have to own everything they say, and some of the things they say there are absolutely shocking. Under their own names!
