    What is all the fuss with Danganronpa?

    I think there's a fundamental flaw with this game that the DR fans don't seem to admit. No matter how self-aware you are about your characters being cliched archetypes, they are still cliched archetypes. Or to put it in another way: self-aware bad writing is still bad writing. This bad habit in...

    Amazing Spider-Man #656 - Resolve 4/5 It's inevitable that Spidey ends up a bleeding heart, but as much as I enjoy his messiah complex and pacifism, he does come off as a tad naive here. One of the many reasons comic book super villains get to hurt people is because they end up escaping...

    Amazing Spider-Man #655 - "Awakening" 4/5 Near the end of Brand New Day, we've encountered quite a large number of deaths that were largely tasteless in my opinion - specifically the ones in "Shed" and "Grim Hunt", two very well-received story arcs that are still popular today. But for me...

    The Avengers: Infinity War (Red Carpet Premiere)

    Yeah, I knew. It was obvious when certain characters died. But that ending still felt real in the moment of it, in spite of what I realized seconds after. I don't mind that there's a reset. It's still effective storytelling, and I don't see how they could've told IW any other way.

    The Avengers: Infinity War (Red Carpet Premiere)

    I could relate. I was speechless at the end. It's what I wanted to happen, but never expected Marvel to have the balls to go through with it.

    The Avengers: Infinity War SPOILER Review

    Because of the nature of the movie, I honestly don't know how to write a review for this without leaking important information that might even spoil the movie a little bit - so I won't. To further prevent people from accidentally clicking this thread, I'll be posting the link to the review...

    Venom (2018) Trailer

    I get your point, and I would agree but... there's no "Spidey" in this film for that parallel to work, unfortunately.

    Venom (2018) Trailer

    Yeah, that's how I felt too. Before Ruffalo came along and showed us what a truly bulky Hulk can look like, I would have excused Venom for not looking like his comic book counterpart since it might look silly or cartoonish. Now, after Avengers came out in 2012 and showed us how good-looking a...

    Venom (2018) Trailer

    Except it's not really semantics though. The "argument" was between what you find to be unique and what I don't, what you find to be so "different" and special but I don't. Hell, if that is semantics, every argument about whether if DC movies are just dark and edgy wannabes is over semantics...

    Venom (2018) Trailer

    Well, I was just responding in accordance to the context of your previous comment. You mentioned that he's unique because he's a villain who saves innocents and only hates Spider-Man. So let's break those words down. He's unique because he's a different kind of villain. Why is he considered a...

    Venom (2018) Trailer

    "Internal struggles" aside, the whole reason he appears "unique" is because he stands out as a Spider-Man villain, or as you put it, because he doesn't do all those cliched villain stuff when fighting Spider-Man. In other words, he's only unique because of Spider-Man. Take that factor away, and...

    Venom (2018) Trailer

    I actually liked the teaser more since it at least followed the dark and gritty tone of Venom as a character. He has all these aggressive emotions buried inside him, and that teaser summed that up very well. It also suggested that the movie's going to be something of a psychological character...

    Venom (2018) Trailer

    Yeah... I don't really know. I don't like the idea of Eddie becoming Venom without the main source of vengeance that caused him to be so angry in the first place... a certain webslinging superhero that goes "Thwip! Thwip!" I really don't like the idea of Venom going after evil corporate...

    The Avengers: Infinity War (Red Carpet Premiere)

    Yeah, that's what I meant. See my previous post in this thread with the spoiler regarding the fake-out.

    The Avengers: Infinity War (Red Carpet Premiere)

    Or, from the look of the trailer, just the dying in Tony's arms. lol Maybe he'll pull a Coulson like in the first Avengers.
