Weird - learn something new every day.

Under an overpass is an ideal place to hide during a tornado.  Normally lying flat near the side.

Going back for the dog instead of sending your indestructible alien son?  Unreasonably idiotic.

And that was all WITH Chris Nolan's guidance...

I thought it was stupid that Zod didn't throw up his arms and surrender when Supes was about to commit genocide.  "Whoa - whoa - whoa!  Alright!  You win!  I'm genetically programmed to do anything possible to protect these embryos... So let me just fly this baby to some other planet.  No need to exterminate a billion innocent unborn Kryptonians!"

Joe Quesada comments on Man of Steel

As a comic book fan, I wanted to love that movie so much. I just think at the end of the day, Zod was the hero of the movie to me. He wanted to save his race, and Superman didn't let him. Zod, in this particular incarnation, struck me as not necessarily an evil man, he had his orders, he had a mission.

I had the same exact reaction - one of the big failures with the script, IMO.

WB hitches their wagon to Snyder

Because obviously Man of Steel didn't bomb like Green Lantern.

I'm in the same boat.  I think they've diverged a bit from the books.  I also don't remember anything like the ceremony at the end from the books.

Book Spoiler:

Reading the Wiki - it looks like in the books only Summer ever encountered the traitors... what was left of them.

I think it was "in production" for a good, long while rather than being resurrected.  There was controversy with season 3 where they didn't air a couple episodes that were critical of BET.  That led to creative differences when they started on season 4, to the point where McGruder dropped out as showrunner.  And I speculate that what they did was wrap up what was already in progress to produce season 4, which they're calling the final season.  I'd be nice if these ratings prompt CN to reconsider that course.

After a long, long hiatus, The Boondocks returned to Adult Swim last night.  And people watched.  It was the highest-rated TV show in the 18-34 demo across all channels, broadcast & cable.

So Archer ends, and The Boondocks returns.  Nice transition.

Sure. If you're going to boycott the movie, then I assume you will find out where he eats, shops, gets gas, etc. And boycott those places as well, right?  Crap, he likes tacos?  Guess I'm done eating Mexican food.   ::)

Not anywhere near a logical argument.  If Singer made me tacos, I wouldn't accept them.  If he owned Taco Bell, I wouldn't eat there.  But the fact that he might like them has no impact.

Singer was the DIRECTOR of this film.  That's the CEO.  The guy in charge.  Totally different than what you're trying to argue.

People need to think a little more about the outcome of their actions before doling out punishment.  And this is all assuming he did anything wrong - Singer is being viewed as guilty until proven innocent.

Apparently the fact that he throws these annual parties is not disputed.  The idea that he throws annual parties that focus on child rape should shock anyone.  But in Hollywood nobody raises an eyebrow.

From what I've read - accusations from a victim who has already had a number of successful cases.  So it's an accuser with some credibility.

So you'd go to a movie directed by Jerry Sandusky (assuming a quality movie with actors you respect)?

But THIS STORY?  It's a whole new level of creepy.  And while I had begun to warm up to the idea of this new X-Men film, now I feel like doing that would just be wrong.

I keep coming back to one question:  If Jerry Sandusky directed a kick-ass X-Men movie, would I go to see it?  And it's really hard to answer yes.

I'm less concerned over the fact that dude's suing because he was molested at a molestation party he probably should have avoided, and more concerned that Singer ATTENDED child molestation parties.  Allegedly...

Definitely one of the best characters IMO.

Who doesn't have a lot of friends in King's Landing...

Whose patron was just accused of poisoning the king...

Well this is unfortunate...

Normally going to an X-men movie doesn't pose a moral dilemma...   :P
