Watto's Junk Yard / Re: Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

I'm interested in hearing reviews from people who aren't emotionally invested in the movie being a huge hit.  I've been reading a whole lot of "OMG THIS IS THE BEST MOVIE EVER" stuff from people I know are huge DC fanboys (and who didn't think MoS was a crapfest).  It's coming across as a bit desperate.

Was that supposed to be a child predator thing?  I was too busy thinking "what's this idiot doing" to really take in the scenery.

I generally don't feel the need to point out unrealistic/illogical scenes in fictional tv shows but the Dr. in the pharmacy and with the car was just plain dumb.

They're doing all kinda dumb stuff.   I think with the doc she was trying to build up courage or something.  Extremely ill-advised, but somewhat understandable.

Eugene is extremely lucky they ran into Daryl's group, otherwise he'd have been the only leverage they had to get into Alexandria, and that likely wouldn't have boded well for him.  And I'm surprised Daryl didn't notice a dozen guys creeping up on him.  City life is making him dull.

What? Last Crusade was good.

It was good when I was a kid.  Watching as an adult, there are some pretty big flaws.  Most of the franchise characters become cartoonish caricatures, which is unfortunate.  Even Indy is buffoonish.

Kind of a weak first couple of episodes.  Entertaining, but not very consequential.

That's what happens when you do all the stuff on a computer instead of dragging a dude on a rope behind a truck.

Was that Agent 33 from Agents of SHIELD as the fingerless Savior? Sure looked like her.

That was not Maya Stojan.  According to Wikipedia, the role was played by Jeananne Goossen (though not credited on IMDB).

Preacher premiere date - May 22 at 10 PM.

Quote
An encore presentation of the pilot episode will air the following Sunday, May 29, with back-to-back airings beginning at 9 PM. New episodes will resume Sunday, June 5 at its regular 9 PM time slot.

So I guess it's going to premiere after the finale of Fear the Walking Dead, then take over the prime 9 PM slot.  I'm skipping Fear this time around - season 1 was garbage, and I can't imagine the characters are gonna get any better.

Carol is taking stock, and not liking the balance.  So yeah, that might point to her end.

I thought it was a great episode.  Very tense.

Kinda odd with the cult-of-Negan.  Still trying not to spoil the show with the comic, so I don't know if that plays out the same.

And funny how a whole group of people will pile into a room that must reek of gasoline without so much as a second thought.   ;D

I haven't read the comics either, even tho I've heard that someone dies, but I wonder after all the fighting each other how do you even team up again as Avengers how do you be 'friends' again?

He's called Thanos.   8)

And I get the sense that the government wants to hold both of them responsible for the creation of Ultron which led directly to the Sokovia incident.  I think it is precisely because of that particular incident and it's causality that leads Tony Stark to play ball with the government regarding the registration and control of super-human activities.

OK, I'll buy that.

Okay, maybe I'm the only one but I don't get it...

Why not just put Hulk in there and call it Avenger 3?

Because contracts.   ;)

It'll be interesting to see how they adapt the comics to film.  My main problem with Tony agreeing to be controlled is that he knows that Hydra pretty much controlled the whole government just two movies ago.  The World Council.  Everything.  So that's who he wants to put in charge of the Avengers?

And each of those big destructive events - what would have been the outcome had the Avengers not acted independently?  New York City nuked & the world conquered by aliens.  Every special/consequential human on earth executed.  And total global extinction.

So it just seems there has to be a breach in logic to go along with the "we caused this destruction" argument.
