The New Guy

The New Guy (1/8)

  1. That's only slightly better than a cloud. I despised part 3 of that trilogy.
  2. Proud owner of both games. Still play them regularly. Duck Tales is the largest reason my NES still gets use because it is such a good game for short plays. Nowadays games made from other franchises have the stigma of utterly sucking. That stigma always makes me think back and wonder what happened. There is a massive amount of NES games made from outside properties that are just flat out fun to play.
  3. I second that. She is right at the glare mark. I don't really have anything against this other than why they need to give such a weighted billing.
  4. I have great to pathetically great knowledge about pretty much every incarnation of the turtles (including the anime, but that really isn't worth going into beyond a passing mention) other than the "current" (it is on hiatus I believe) comic run. For some reason that I don't even know, I haven't ever picked up the current books.
  5. I wouldn't say he's the worst thing, but he definately isn't all that great
  6. episode one didn't do anything to grab me but since your are setting up a "deadline" for the end of ep two, I suppose I'll give that a go as well
  7. I feel like some of the humour would be too quick for kids but I do know that my whole theatre, including myself, was laughing loudly on several occasions.
  8. very very very good. The turtles all have very distinguishable characters, the voice acting was all very strong (even though Mako felt wrong despite being the performance I was most looking forward to), the action sequences were amazing, and the plot developed extremely well (it is much deeper than the "monster's on the loose, they're taking over the world, ahhh!" that it has appeared to be from ads/trailers/teasers). If you go in expecting something good and fun and turtley, you will get it from this film. That and "black betty" will be stuck in your head for another year.
  9. The review pretty much just tells me everything I already expect going into the movie. And I will be going into the movie. I'm excited.
  10. Zing! She hasn't really have a big enough body of work for me to settle on a similar opinion of her, but I am not too far away from agreeing.
  11. that is probably the most awkward looking she's ever been drawn. Canary is looking good in the back, though
  12. First, I hope this proposed 300 follow-up isn't a sequel, loose or otherwise. Second, Alba's Nancy Callahan is not the title "dame" in Sin City 2. That would actually be Ava Lord, rumored to be played by either Angelina Jolie or Rachel Weisz. Shut up, you! The media never makes stupid mistakes like that! I hope they can wrangle up the same cast for pretty much every character. There is probably only one or two that I wouldn't be sad about changing actresses. And they might not even be the same characters so much as grouped together in my mind as the same. I, too, hope the follow-up isn't related to 300 in story at all. I'm really curious what myth has grabbed his attention.
  13. I didn't know there was a "halfway between the United States and Mexico." I always thought they were adjacent. Damn my poor geography skills. God, Captain Punisher looks stupid. So far everything points to the impact of this simply being a costume change for the Punisher. I want substance. Fantasy: Bucky kicking Frank's ass for wearing the stupid costume.
  14. Too bad it is winter. I'm not really a huge fan of 300 but I feel the LotR comparison is unfair. I despise LotR in their movie (and book) forms. 300 was better than that. Nerd blasphemy I know, but LotR compares to Star Wars in that aspect. The source materials create great stories... but are told horribly.
