  1. Saw VIII

    Lionsgate has set a release date of October 27th, 2017. It's being directed by Michael and Peter Spierig who did Daybreakers which was mostly boring but another of their films, Predestination, got rather decent reviews. So, enough of a reason for cautious optimism?
  2. Everything Marvel

    The Captain Marvel movie will take place in the 90s where Carol Danvers and Nick Fury will be fighting Skrulls. So, when did Marvel get back the rights to using Skrulls? Because I remember, the main reason they used The Chitauri was because they didn't have the rights for The Avengers.
  3. Spider-Man: Homecoming

    Sony has confirmed the title of the film. Michael Keaton is in early talks to play the villain.
  4. The Doctor Who thread

    Once I realized what they were doing with it all, I loved it. It was a bit of a response to Capaldi's costume so it worked on that level but also just as a costume for The Master, independent of him. Honestly, it also helped that I had always seen that kind of costume if we ever did have a female doctor. So, now that we do, I do want them to go in another direction. BBC has up an interview with the new doctor.
  5. The Doctor Who thread

    Can I just say how happy that I'm not the only one putting serious thought into the costume? Like, seriously, I know how gay it is but the thing I'm looking forward to most about a female Doctor is the costume potential. Sure, a Doctor needs an iconic costume but if I were the costume designer for this series, I would revel in how much freedom was just given to me. Hell, we're talking about a person who is a woman for the first time, of course she should try different styles. Does she enjoy a dress that flows or one that shows off her curves? For that matter, dresses or pants? Blouses or t-shirts? Letting her hair run wild or wearing a hat or a scarf? And then you have Jewelry. Rings, broaches, bracelets, necklaces. All kinds of new avenues open.

    Get Out: I tend to multi-task when I watch movies. This is one of the rare films that I needed to give my full attention. It's a good horror film. It's a good comedy. It's good social commentary. It's so fucking good. This is The End: Meh. It's an SNL sketch that got stretched out over an hour and a half.

  8. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Wonder Woman: Since two of my roomies hadn't seen it. Police Academy: This was that series I watched all the time when I was younger. It's definitely a product of it's time and some of the humor is problematic to say the least. Still, it's also interesting because after this one, the series slowly went from being from being a police themed Meatballs to more slapsticky fare. The Mighty Ducks: It was on Netflix. I figured, sure, it'll be a good movie to watch during the afternoon. Flash Gordon: It was on one of the random multiplex channels so sure, why the fuck not?

  10. Everything about that movie makes my science brain hurt.
  11. The Convention Thread

    I was wondering what conventions everyone was planning on going to this coming year. I figured this would more easily allow people going to the same con to meet up, hang out, and, if necessary, plan out lodging plans. I am currently planning on going to (outside of the two tiny local gaming conventions): Ohayocon: Columbus, OH Jan. 29-31 though I'm only going to on the 30th and maybe the 31st. Gem City Comiccon: Dayton, OH April 5th. Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo: Chicago, April 16-18 Origins Game Fair: Columbus, OH June 22nd-27th thought I don't know what dates I'm going to attend. Gen Con: Indianapolis, Indiana August 5-8 though I don't know what days I'm planning on going there also. Mid-Ohio Con: Columbus, OH November 6-7

    Oh, totally.

    Which version?
  14. Every Film You've Watched in 2017

    Transformers: The Last Knight: Not the worst in the series but it such a convoluted mess with enough plot holes that you can barely see the movie through them. Also, has it become normal for movies to randomly change aspect ratios between edits? Is this a thing now?

    X-Men: Apocalypse: It's not the worst X-Men movie ever but it's far from the best. Moana: Since, I would say The Princess and The Frog, We've been in what I like to think of as The Disney Revival. It's been a series of films where you can't help but think that the next one can't be better than the last and you are usually wrong. Outside of just being a beautiful film, and this is coming from the guy who usually doesn't care for computer animation, it's terrifically acted and well-written. Then you have the music. Jesus Christ, this is probably the best music in a Disney film since probably the 90s. The Babadook: I've been meaning to watch this and, with the film's recent embrace by the LGBT comminunity for some weird reason, I figured, sure. What the hell. It's a pretty solid film. It's not scary but I don't think it's meant to be. It's more thriller to be honest. Odd Thomas: Another one that I've been meaning to watch. I didn't at first because the cover art was generic. Then I avoided it because of the death of Anton Yelchin. So, ended up throwing it on and it's okay. His charisma is what holds it together because, otherwise, the plot is pretty generic. Like, is there a single person in this town that doesn't realize he's psychic except the villains?

  16. Transformers 5 and Beyond

    Paramount is negotiating with Akiva Goldsmith to help in the creation of a writer's room to help create a multi-part Transformers sequel and a series of spin-off films. In unrelated news, did anyone else hear a very loud psychic scream coming from Atlanta?
  17. Transformers 5 and Beyond

    Yep. Two screens, each showing two movies, easy to do the shuffle. Sometimes you're lucky and the switch happens at the same time.

    Bring It On.
  19. Transformers 5 and Beyond

    I'm usually the person that gets the ball rolling with doing anything that isn't sitting in the apartment playing video games. My favorite drive-in has no arcade games or anything. Just two screens, some of those awesome drive-in ads from the 50s and 60s, and a snack shack that has seen better days but definitely has a charm to it. Honestly, the real charm of going to the drive-in for me is that I can talk during the movie. It's mainly used for bad movies so we can make fun of them but still.
  20. Transformers 5 and Beyond

    I'm waiting for one of my roommates to have his next day off so we can go see it at the drive-in, preferably with something semi-tolerable. Having read some of the reactions, the unanswered questions page on the Tirades Wiki is going to get so much larger.
  21. Star Wars, nothing but Star Wars...

    Ron Howard is stepping in to direct the Han Solo film.

    Said it on Facebook also but Happy Birthday, Bro! Look at a weird-ass wedding cake.
