  • New Watchmen Official Teaser Trailer

    I'm a little vague on what the conversation around Moore is in this thread in regards to the movie but FWIW, Moore feels like DC broke faith with him about making more Watchmen content behind his back (the prequel comments specifically, but I think this applies to everything). I'm not steeped in the comics community but every time I hear comics people talk about it they generally agree both Moore got fucked over and also Moore is a gigantic asshole. I don't know how much this feeds into why fans don't like the movie. Personally I think it's pretty good.



    Moore also knew he was signing a work for hire contract and the Charlton character analogs he created would be owned by DC and they could ultimately do whatever they want with them.  

    I've never heard Dave Gibbons (he's the artist of WM) ever complain about all the royalty checks he's received all of these years. 

    Frank Miller also wrote a seminal work for DC around when Watchmen came out (Dark Knight Returns) and even though that version of the character has been used by DC with and without Miller's involvement, he's not gotten as bent out of shape about it as Moore has.  

    It's just part of the business, but Moore still likes to complain.  A lot.

  • Marvel Writing Question

    As others have said there's been many different writers throughout the MCU, but for my money the key ones are Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. They wrote the Captain America trilogy and since Winter Soldier it seemed like the MCU started to move in the overall direction that the Cap movies headed and before you know it they were tapped to write Infinity War and Endgame. So essentially it feels like they're THE writers.
    Exactly, that's why I only really care about the movies Cap is in.  All of those are the ones that really matter to the overall story. 

    People can have fun with the other ones, but if you want to watch the main MCU story in, let's say, a groundhog day type marathon setting, I would just stick to all the MCU movies with Cap and maybe IM one. 

    Additionally, that is why I think Cap will be back sooner rather than later whether that is Evans returning or them recasting the character.  He keeps the story going.

  • 803 - “The Long Night”

    My only explanation for Ghost surviving and never being seen again (until next week) is that while they are charging the wight army, Ghost sees a squirrel in the forest and ran straight to it chasing it for the entirety of the battle.

    Thank you squirrel friend, for saving our good boy Ghost from being sacrificed in the most senseless battle maneuver we've ever seen.

    I just think that Ghost is smarter than the Dothraki, he probably smartly ran the other direction once he saw how many there were.

  • Avengers Endgame - Full Spoiler discussion

    Ok, I this movie had some very high highs at some points and it was very slow at others and I had some major issues with others. Kind of the very good, the bad and the ugly.  I know they grade on a curve for the MCU movies, but I'm surprised the RT score is so high. 

    I really enjoyed the focus on Hawkeye, he's a core avenger in the comics and it was good to see him getting all that screen time. That scene at the beginning was heartbreaking.

    Fat Thor was a silly joke that went on far too long.  I thought for sure the drink his mother gave him in Asgard would thin him down or once he stopped constantly drinking beer he would thin down quickly.  That scene with his mom was very good and Rene Russo did a great job taking care of her boy.  Such a good scene of a mother's love. 

    I really, really enjoyed Cap wielding Mjolnir, I saw it coming a mile away (comic history and AofU when he moved the hammer a bit).  That was good, but it enters a massive plot hole on how Mjolnir is with him and not with Thor in the past. I get alternate timelines/multiverses ala DC comics, but that is a TON of handwaving.  I like the very end giving him his moment with Sharon.  I don't want to see Falcon trying to be cap, that was a massive failure in the comics.  They did do a good job though leaving it open for Cap to come back whenever the subs screw up though and if the actor ages and wants to come back, it makes sense story wise.   That was a perfect denouement for the entire movie series IMO. 

    I liked Scarlet Witch, she should have been the one they focused on more instead of other newer female characters IMO.  She's a core avenger from the comics from WAY back, she should have played a bigger role. 

    The Hawkeye/Black Widow stuff was good, very emotional.  She's getting a movie and Vision is going to be in the SW/Vision Disney+ show, why didn't we get to see them at the end?  I was surprised that such a big character didn't get more play at the end of the movie.  

    Unpopular opinion on here I'm guessing, but Carol Danvers is just a terrible character.  She's way too OP'd and frankly has nothing but disdain for the avengers.   I really don't look forward to watching here in anything going forward.  She's not Superman or WW, why on earth make her be the dues ex machina at the end to "save" everyone?  Again, what the Hell is she doing when they are literally trying to save the Universe?  I did think they REALLY used the bacon gauntlet at the end with the girl power charge.  Went a bit overboard there.

    Wish we got more Dr. Strange instead of star lord, he's just a better character and I enjoyed the nod at the end to Tony.  They've done a good job with him, I'm more excited to see him moving forward than I was after his first two movies. 

    I enjoyed Spider-man playing keep away with the gauntlet at the end, very true to the character. 

    IM will be back somehow (this is ultimately a comic book and no one stays dead forever), but they did a good job with him in this movie.  Very sad at the end, but fitting for the character. 

    I'll probably have to watch it again to catch all the easter eggs, but damn it's probably 20 minutes too long.  

    The Stan Lee cameo was golden and again it was glad to see the heart of the MCU get a happy ending. 

    Now bring on the X-Men and let's get these core avengers back in 6-7 years for a big X-Men/Avengers crossover!

    I didn't hate the last jedi, but I wish JJ directed all of these and Rion Johnson hadn't been involved. 

    Lot of bad decisions they are going to have to fix during this film.
