    I haven't been interested in most Millar things lately, but that endorsement has me intrigued now. I'm always a sucker for Immonen art anyway.

    She does Spidey webcomics, sorta like USM for the Tumblr generation. They're charming, but I dunno if they're the right credentials for ASM. I'm glad for her getting the gig though, if I would buy this issue (I dropped ASM last year), it's to support her.

    That page reminds me a bit of what I didn't like in Larroca's art in the Vader series, but much worse.

    Happy birthday Mike!

    Bloodborne has been kicking my ass and bringing out my nightmares for my waking self to see. And I'm having a great time.

    A lot of the voice acting feels really flat to me, though to be fair I've thought that with just about all of the animated movies post-Red Hood.

    This is my favorite version of C-3PO's first appearance in TFA.

    I personally rank the Star Wars(of the main series, can't really place Rogue One yet) in reverse chronological order. TFA has just about every single thing I want to see in a Star Wars movie. I think where ESB has TFA beat is in character development and stakes, but I dunno if that's quite fair since this is an introduction to a new saga.

    First trailer.

    If you were going to check out other Godzilla movies, I recommend the very first one from 1954, and (my personal favorite) Godzilla Against MechaGodzilla from 2002. The former, of course because it's a classic. The latter is a very fun romp, with just enough worldbuilding and character development. It also has some NGE inspirations, which is why I was onboard with Shin Godzilla from the start. It has a sequel called Tokyo SOS which is a serviceable retread plus Mothra.

    I've watched this several times and I lose it when he starts smacking R2.

    Teen Titans Earth One vol 2 - The first one was my favorite of the Earth One line. This, I didn't quite love as much, but I get that it has to be more plot-based than character. I really enjoyed it regardless. Raven continues to have the best characterization, which is great because she's my favorite Titan. I love her friendship with Starfire so much (And I got relationship vibes). The rest were equally well-done, but Slade Wilson is the one that is hard to get a read on. 
    The art by Andy McDonald is pretty good. It retains a similar vibe thanks to Brad Anderson's colors, but I still think that the Dodsons are better storytellers.

    I'm with Don here. I haven't rewatched it since, but I loved it (and considered it my favorite of the season) from the first part. There's some stuff I found quite harrowing personally, like the scene in front of the church. Maybe I wasn't as politically aware, I only really started considering it when I saw a Facebook post that referred to the aliens as "Zysis." I also found Jenna Coleman as Bonnie quite fun, and the twist threw me for a loop the first time I saw it. Maybe it's one I shouldn't revisit, to preserve the feeling of loving it, but I dunno.
  14. Davedevil added a post in a topic The last *good* villain adaptation?   

    If I could divorce myself of the image of Terence Stamp, I might say MOS' Zod too. I dunno if I care much for Shannon as an actor to begin with though.
    Watching the Ultimate Edition, I really liked Eisenberg's Luthor. His manic nature probably made him seem more of the Joker in the form of Lex like one of those Elseworlds mashups, but his actions were appropriately Luthor.
    I think she's an original character so it's not really an adaptation but Lena Headey's Ma-Ma was great.
    I'm probably biased but I'll mention TASM's Lizard. I thought Ifans did a good job with the sympathetic side of Connors' character. Maybe something was lost in Billy and Martha's absence, but it wasn't glaring in the film. (Though come to think of it, Billy would've worked with the "absent fathers" theme of the movie. Hmm.)

    Shin Godzilla - Could've lost 15-20 minutes without suffering much, but man did I love this. Despite the talkiness, it never stops being engaging. There's some amazingly crafted monster scenes here that are easily in the upper tier of the genre (One scene in particular was breathtaking). A very daring movie for the franchise and hopefully the beginning of a Godzilla resurgence.
