What does it say about my life that this trailer made me smile more than. Anything else this week?

I am confused about Netflix 3D and how to find what they really have. I know they are not encouraging it, but it's still there and I can get a list on the PS3. BUT,

Cruising last week I happen to find the 2007 Animated Beowulf in the 3d list. Watched it again and enjoyed it. First time in 3D I think that helped with the weird CGI attempt at the human actors.

Today, I notice it is gone from the offered list, BUT, is still in my recently watched que. Okay, it transferred out quickly. I clicked on the one in recently watched, and low and behold, the 3D version is still available. If I search Beowulf I can find the 3D version. So now I have to wonder, what is being kept hidden in the search function if anything that I may want to see specifically in 3D and how to find what they offer.

So, has anyone come up with an effective way to search them out on Netflix?

recorded it and watched it at lunch today, did not like it.  The main character is a brit (which just doesn't jive for me) and the first episode takes place in Atlanta.  Was very predictable.

Lot of chick shows for me this summer:

Call the Midwife (S1+S2), Weeds (S1-S3), Young Justice (S1 - this was better than it had any right being), Murder She Wrote (S1-S2, our "put us to sleep show"), Orange is the New Black (S2), Attack on Titan (S1), Knights of Sidonia (S1), Arrow (S1), Game of Thrones (S4 - saw free on one of those free HBO weekends), Top Gear (various seasons). And watching S2 of Bates Motel now which is very good.

If we had Stars we would also be watching Outlander which we both liked the pilot.


Season 2 of Young Justice is good too. Try Green Lantern:TAS

I agree that the way Jonathan Lent was portrayed was the biggest miscasting of a character, and even that Clark's character reasonably flowed from it. The net effect was not a Superman that I thought was true to the character.

The performance was a bit ... unleavened.  I do hope they passover any further attempts to extend this story line.

Been a long time since I've seen the shorter ears. It's hard to get the effect on the iPad, but looks pretty good.

It doesn't matter anyway because it's all about the CAR!  Chicks dig the CAR, amirite?

I've actually softened my hatred for Affleck for the role. Not that I think he's a brilliant actor or anything, but looks and attitude wise I think he could probably pull off a younger, cockier Bruce Wayne.

What finally changed my mind is that I started reading about Arkham Knight, restarting my Batman comics, etc. and I realized that as I was doing this I wasn't thinking about Bale's Batman anymore. I had moved on to other mediums and they were their own take on the character. And I was still enjoying them a great deal. I kind of had this "aha" moment when I realized that Batman vs Superman is its own entity. It exists in its own bubble, and Affleck's Batman doesn't have to adhere to Nolan's trilogy anymore than Nolan's trilogy had to adhere to Burton's or Schumacher's films. So why not give him a chance. If Clooney and Kilmer couldn't destroy my love for the Dark Knight, then I'm fairly certain Affleck can't either.

That might have all changed in the New 52 for all I know, I have not been that keen on the reboot.

I've only watched the first 10 minutes, but I enjoy that version of Krypton much more than how it's been portrayed for the last 30 or so years. It reminded me of the pre-John Byrne Krypton with thought beasts and fire falls.

As I said, not seen this yet, but I have seen Justice League: War (the New 52 based animated). I also rewatched Superman (1978) lately. If the Man of Steel character is like the one in War, I much prefer the older characterization.



I finally did watch this on HBO in 3D. My ability to suspend belief was exceeded because of some of the things, but I agree with Batman in one of the Super Hero Cafe episodes. "'The Man of Steel' was not inspiring."

All in all 1978's, with all it's silliness is still a better Superman movie IMO.

(Even if you've seen it already, go watch Dog Soldiers just to like werewolves again.

I prefer the classics.  So that's why An American Werewolf in London is always at arm's length at my place for such an emergency.  I also reach for 30 Days of Night whenever I get depressed about the state of Vampires in modern film.

One of my favorite werewolf movies, nay my favorite, is Gabriel Knight- the Beast Within. Sure it was an FMV game, but if you sit back and watch the story, it a good one.

Yeah, the Marvel live action film division is stomping all over Warner Bros..  However, the DC Animated division of Warner Bros has consistently put out films with better stories.  You'd think DC would find some way to capitalize on that.

After hearing that Netflix was cutting 3D offerings I was surprised to find things like "The Croods" listed for show. It may be that where is up is just what is left in the pipeline.

Among them is something called "Scary Tales.". I watched the first episode and will watch the rest. It is a series about older versions of fairy tales. Each episode is divided into two segments. The first one dealt with Red Riding Hood, complete with cannibalism and and slaughter, and then the story of Bluebeard. During the segment there are interviews with people discussing the truth behind the stories and the state of the world at the time. I am looking foward to Cinderella's step sisters getting their eyes pecked out.

Almost any Adventure Game.

They always sound so appealing, but end up never reeling me in.

.

Does that go for the Gabriel Knight games too?  I love adventure games, but those stand out to this day. I include Grim Fandango and the Tim Schafer stuff in that list. Monkey Island for example.

I never liked text adventures, spent too much time trying to figure out how to get the Babel Fish in my ear. biggrin

Disclaimer: I've not yet seen Man of Steel, so this question comes from ignorance.

Has there ever been a story where Superman killing has come to a good ending?   

I just watched the JLA animated arc on the Justice Lords, Injustice, etc. I think there was one about killing Zod in a pocket universe, but even that had some bad repercussions as I recall.

Does that mean no DC universe movies until 2016?

I guess the TV shows will lay ground work for the movie then, which I guess is not too bad an idea....Batman cameo on Arrow; Superman caught in a magic web in Constantine; Flash fighting parademons in Central City. Jim Gordon's relationship with Batman built up through Gothom for his chance to give Batman advice before "vs" Superman.   icon_biggrin

I am on the binge end if the watching world, for the most part. Mainly for shows with meta arcs. American Horror Story for example. Episodic shows, like Bones, not worried about. 

I certainly prefer to wait for the end of their run. TRON Uprising is an example. My own style of watching fits right in with Netflix Original programming.

in a way I kind of miss the months of having nothing new to watch; it kind of takes away from the magic of the start of the TV season slywink

I miss the special Saturday morning new season preview shows. When Saturday morning cartoons were fun, we didn't need moral or math lessons, and old man Wilkerson was also taken down by those meddling kids and their dog.

I just finished Breaking Bad (thanks marathon) and still have the entire season of Bates Motel to watch, face off, glee, several others on dvr, supernatural still hanging on netfix, etc. not sure if I can take too many more new shows

It's a brave new world that rerun season is a thing of the past. (well, really, it's a brave OLD world since I think reruns were unheard of until the 1960s).

I am looking forward to Being Human(American), Lost Girl, and curious about the new werewolf show with Supergirl.

Saw it today, enjoyed it. My personal tastes wish that the sci-fi was toned down and the Myth/Magic was more. I miss the Mythic beings of the old comics too, so its my personal tastes on the current interpretation. If Dr. Strange is tied into this universe, then actual magic exists and so why not mythic gods?  Stan Lee, always a pleasure to pick him out in these.

Now, can someone explain the ending of the movie to me.. The throne room scene?

PS4 will not support 3D Bluray at launch

I'll say what I said when the Xbone came out with this news.    I don't watch 3D blurays so it doesn't affect me.

That is odd, cause a Sony executive recently (after the news came out that the Xbone didn't) said that it did. I don't watch 3d Blurays either though, so either way, I don't care.

That would kill any PS4 purchase for me.

I just deposited my PS4 + games cash, so I'm good to go. Next project is to get my PS3 moved over to the living room so that my kids can assume 'ownership' of the system. How does that work in terms of IDs for them? Can I create IDs for them as children, or should they just piggyback on my id?

Thursday night on my ride home from work I plan to swing by my local Gamestop just to see what the line looks like. With a midnight launch I'm assuming people will be lined up hours and hours ahead of time.

If you happen to know where I can still score a PS4 local, drop me a line, please.  I'd love to avoid the line wait.

Thnx
