I was surprised at how thoughtful the conversation about just what to do about the Celestials ended up being. It’s not capital-D “deep,” but it was a lot more nuanced and interesting than I think we usually get with sci-fi blockbusters when they get into things like this. (Also Karun and Kingo in particular during… Read more
I was pleasantly surprised by how charming Kit Harrington ended up being, I didn’t really get that from him in Game of Thrones, but I really bought him here as a totally safe, well intentioned guy that you could fall for if you’re an ageless hottie with matter changing powers.
I agree with this. The final trailer is maybe the closest that comes to the actual film itself, but the other promos were trying to pitch it as another MCU movie when tone wise, it is very much…Not That. And I think that’s reflected in how some people are reacting to it.
So, Man-Bat from Harley Quinn? Yes.
Yeah I’m with you, man, this was something of a dud. Chuckled at some bits, but nothing made me cackle like a dipshit like last week or the Mr. Nimbus stuff a week prior. The Cap. Planet stuff felt like it was missing an edge or even a different angle on the material—like, no duh her “kids” just pimp her out to anyone… Read more
I’m pretty certain it’s canon that Lord Shaxx got pegged by Mara Sov after reciting Shakespeare so yes, Destiny Fucks
It feels like they wanted either a long season or another one to go out on a bang, but then that didn’t happen, so they tried splitting the difference. And it...didn’t work! One story thread is kinda interesting before being cut off at the knees (Sheidheda), and the other just got more dull the longer they kept… Read more
Heh, now THIS is the age of the geek, eh?
This time, Kratos must deal with...the dreaded Old Navy winter clothing sales
People are comparing this to Game of Thrones, which is inaccurate because The 100 revels in its own absurd bullshit, and I love it
Ash I am right there with you, because I started Inquisition again pretty much the day after the Gamescom demo and it still fucking rules. Forgot how much I loved the incidental banter between everyone.
One of these is still ongoing, the other owned up to the stuff he did and was also very clearly done in bad faith, and the other actually is a big part of one of their media arms and can’t be easily disposed of. Read more
While it’s certainly a given that anyone who has a TV show or movie coming generally soon are a lock in for this, it’s others you kinda gotta wonder about. Quake is mentioned in the single player portion of the beta, so that feels right. Mar-Vell or War Machine...maybe?
Love that my single player story about the failings of a venerable code can’t stand against those who don’t play fair to begin with becomes a supernatural sword slashing horde mode with buddies. Read more
All of these dudes are doing a lot to say “I don’t please my wife and make sex all about me.”
