  1. Do we really need to hide spoilers?
  2. Yeah Snipes needs to back in blockbusters and they'd be hard pressed to replace him. Just take the whole continuity as is, merge it, just don't mention Blade:Trinity.
  3. Shit, no rush like. Good health and everything else to her.
  4. Doesn't work for me on Chrome for Android. Will it ever and is it expected to? Can it be found through Discord and how would you do so? All I'm seeing right now is a grey rectangle.
  5. Is there any reason they can't retcon the entire series into the MCU? I mean, rights, smights, they own everything now, or soon will.
  6. This covers a lot of those issues, and I'm pretty sure it's a primer for the US and new audiences in general. It touches on a few worrying things, like Dredd appearing as a noble oppressor and the Punisher logo turning up actual law enforcement vehicles.
  7. I like the look of it, I like the art style, even the third time round, it's still got some charm and character of it's own. Also, the Simpsons with feels? That used to be called the Simpsons. =[
  8. I personally want to see a sequel, the racist tirade can be incorporated into the character. Just make him racist. ALF in the Family. What would that make him? A racist, pull-the-ladder up person of colour. I'm possibly a little too keen to test the limits of satire, but It's a character type I'm seeing more in daily life, so why not?
  9. New characters please. OK, maybe this statement holds up, but you can at least try, if they let you, if you want to. That's a big if, comic characters have gone on to make billions of dollars for their owners, how many of their creators have really got what they deserved from all that? But they can still try, if they have publishers that allow them. I'm not deep into Marvel mythos (and I think it might be time for DC to go take a dirt nap) but how often do they bring in new characters, and how often do those new characters return? I remember Dust and that birdlike dude
  10. Pierce Brosnan's Irish... Still need to see Skyfall, heard good things. Did they fall into a one good, one shit pattern? Spectre was annoying nonsense, yeah I can take the we do good spying, they want to do bad spying. But MI5 brass effectively forming a Scooby Gang to fix things...er.. and Bond blows up the baddies base with a single bullet was a bit too much when they did it in Quantum of Solace, that shit should take a round of MP5 fire into the glowing bit at the centre of the base. Bond's a spy, Bond's British, Bond's dickish. With so many versions, those are the only real
  11. What's the worst that could happen? But I am also looking forward to the movie where all of the characters get to have a fight.
  12. If they really want to get topical, they can bring in Chief Cal...
  13. So much of the appeal for me, is that Dredd is often the antagonist to far more engaging characters. There's the revolutionary America (her name, taken from the no longer extant country) or Chopper and the other sky surfers, doing what they have to to obtain enough freedom to make life bearable. But for the actually villainous, I really want to see them bring in PJ Maybe, a seeming idiot, but mostly savant who leads a decades long crime spree since childhood. Always being just out of reach of the Justice Department, like a bug that can't be squashed. He plays with ever
  14. Slight variant, the Cathartic Church?
  15. First off, got to defend Rosanne at least on one point. She didn't threaten to bake Jews in an oven. She as a Jew (or occasional Jew if you want to be cynical) did an interview and posed for photos with an acerbically satirical Jewish lifestyle magazine. I seriously question the integrity of a journalist that reports it as such. Also, I liked that show, the original and the reboot and wish we lived in an age where an actor's ability to pull off comedic and dramatic roles was seen as entirely separate from their ability to have a coherent opinion on current affairs. Like, it turns out fucking A
  16. Been listening to some classics. It's good to revisit guilty pleasures once you've abandoned the concept of guilt.
  17. I've been run over by far too many hype trains to get truly excited, but I'm looking forward to this. There's been talk between the two movies as to what is the proper tone for Dredd, truth is there never was a consistent tone for Dredd. It's been running almost as long as 2000ad has, and they got bored and they tried new things and it could be a wildly different kind of story from one week to a next. Usually it's about meeting an entirely new group of citizens, learning how they live and more often that not how they die. If they can stay true to that and keep the ideas flowing, it'll be some

  19. I've really no idea what this series is going to be, nor do I think there's been any details, now would be a good time to wildly speculate! Personally I really like the direction it's been taking with Discovery (I'm only five or six episodes in, don't spoil me) and hope it follows on from that thematically. Definitely want to see it painting more nuanced chaotic worlds, hopefully we're truly done with the spaced out laudanum'ed vibe of the Nineties (thought I love it in its own way)
