Watto's Junk Yard / Re: X-Men/Wolverine Movies
« on: Today at 01:14 AM »
Wow.  This story is horrendous, to say the least.  From reading some of the stories about the plaintiff, he and others have already successfully sued other defendents for molestation.  So this isn't just someone who's looking to do a hit job on Bryan Singer in advance of one of his movies coming out.  And evidently in Hawaii, where some of the legal action is being pursued, there was a window of opportunity to pursue a lawsuit for sexual abuse that is due to close very soon.  From what I gather the statute of limitations may have passed for any kind of prosecution.  But a judgement against Singer in civil court will without a doubt damage his reputation as a filmmaker.

I know that there have been some fanboy grumblings about Bryan Singer and his homosexuality.  Some of that has revolved around him and his casting of Brandon Routh in Superman Returns, and an overall unseemly angle.  I chalked a lot of that up to fanboys not liking the movie, being cruel and homophobic.  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.

He'll probably end up Making the next X-men movies in Europe with Roman Polanski.

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars Episode VII

If it's going to be a relative....I hope it's a child or grandchild of a sibling of Obi-Wan's.  It would make more sense and preserve the Obi-Wan character as we know him.

I have the last two Marvel Agents of SHIELD episodes to watch and I'm liking it, but I don't get excited to watch as I do Person of Interest, Justified or Blue Bloods.

I have Turn on my DVR, I'm at the point I'll watch an original AMC series on faith.

I saw it yesterday in IMAX 3D.  Awesome movie!  The end credits scenes were excellent as well!

Vintage Kenner / Re: Latest vintage acquisition
« on: April 1, 2014, 01:01 AM »
Not really new acquisitions for me, but I am doing a little work to some vintage playsets.  I replaced the foam on my vintage Dagobah playset with some repro foam off of ebay and I also purchased some repro foam for my Death Star Trash compactor.  I am also going to see if I can replace the old broken turret.

I'll post some pictures when I'm done.

There was a storyline in the comics called "The Hunters", which I thought would be too disturbing for the tv show.  After the whole Lizzie story, I think they could pull it off.

If it makes you feel any better Jesse, I have a monocle packed in my bug-out bag.

I laughed for 5 full minutes at this one...thanks!  :D

I already don't like how Quicksilver looks.

I think it fits with the claimer group that they would go after Rick.  Rick strangled one of their group to death and let him turn to use as a weapon against them.  They aren't above payback for that.

I never thought Terminus was the safe haven they were advertising...but I have know clue what the motive is for the obviously horrible things going on there.

Yes...there are some horrible things going on there.

i didn't like it
i get what ur saying jesse and i'm not saddened about it the way i was when hershel died. no attachment to these kids like hershel, i mean i figured they die eventually, but still. that just seemed wrong. a sister killing a sister. then carol having to kill the other wow. hasn't her character been thru enough. if i was in that situation i don't think i could've killed a child. probably wouldv'e locked her in the house n left her to her own demise/survival then looking at her and pulling a trigger just ouch don't think i could've done that. obviously she had mental problems that couldn't be dealt with in that world.

This story sort of paralleled a story from the comics.  There were twin boys whose parents had been killed by walkers and Andrea and Dale (who were a couple in the comics), took up responsibility for watching them.  One brother killed the other similar to how it happened in the episode (I didn't hurt his brain, he'll come back).  While everyone in the group was debating on what they should do, it was Carl who shot him in the middle of the night.

I'm down to the last 3 episodes and I really wish Hasbro would make that Jedi Fighter Yoda is flying!

Watto's Junk Yard / Re: JD Book Club: What Are You Reading Now?
« on: March 15, 2014, 08:33 AM »


Started this last night and I'm about 50 pages in.  So far it's typical of Clancy and its just a bunch of story lines to get started.  I imagine after about 100-150 pages it will really take off.

I'm reading this one now (received it for Christmas, but it's tough to read with a 3 year old and a 4 month old in the house).  It's crazy on how it's paralleling what's going on in current events in regards to the Ukraine!

I watched the first story arc about the Tuffs and Fives.  If the rest of the series was telling stories similar to this, I would have liked it so much more!
