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?

What do you think the chances of this movie dove tailing into Malicificent of Once Upon A Time and Disney making its own shared movie/tv universe, although without fanfare, like they are doing with Marvel?

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.

even Hook?

got to say I'm not liking the Wonderland spinoff as much as I thought I would.  Alice and the other guy aren't very likeable, the Red Queen seems to have as much acting ability as one of the CGI props, and Jafar seems like he would be more menacing to airport security than to anyone else.

Even Hook. Love of his life, Neal's mom. They were as married as they could be without a ceremony. Common law I suppose. Then there was the time Neal spent in Neverland aboard the Jolly Roger as Hook's surrogate son. So, yep, I count Hook in that number

*edited to correct characters

Interesting start though, hoping the mermaid (I'm assuming Ariel) comes back soon.  Is it wrong that I'm hoping Baelfire bites it so Hook and Emma can hook up?

So wrong. You'll kill all that tension for the inevitable triangle!

I am still holding out that Regina is the MOST related to Henry.  eek

I haven't seen any of the items in my queue showing Super HD yet, but looking forward to the 3D content.

All I saw were very few, I think children's shows from Europe maybe? CGI. I am just hoping that my search parameters were off.

No one ever asks me (mainly since I am a nobody) but, of I was DC, I would consider a Books of Magic mini series if I wanted to tie movies and tv into one universe ala Marvel.

Books of Magic would introduce the magic side of the universe (Constanine, Stranger, bumping into Deadman, Zantana, Hell, Fairy, etc.). I think that could open up the rumored Justice League Dark movie. Constantine could spin off of that. Think of the guest stars and cameos that opens, not to mention bads that were introduced at the club.

Otoh, I'd rather "Song for Orpehus" be on HBO than American Gods.

Commissioner Gordon is coming to FOX.

It explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon and the villains who made Gotham City famous. In Gotham, Gordon is still a detective with the Gotham City Police Department and has yet to meet Batman, who will not be part of the series.

it is really odd that this didn't end up at the CW along with Arrow and The Flash...

So who are we talking about? The Roman? Carl Grissom? I thought part of the deal with Batman's colorful criminals is that he somehow "creates" them as a psychological response.

There was a lot of Internet outrage in 1989???

UUNet was on fire.

Oh you kids and your "web".  I know there are several here who remember Compuserv, People Link (iirc became AOL), and GEnie before "windows" and "www".  You know, back when there was one window and a dropped /tell or /whisper could lead to divorce, even though it was tougher to get the logs.  smile

So yes, back them, I was a GEnie user, coimic, movie, game roundtables.  Thursday night with Scorpia trying to get hints on whatever Adventure I was playing on my Apple II or Amiga at the time.  The  discussions were always fun, I think I still see several people I was active with on Quartertothree, though they wouldn't remember me.  DennyA is one.

Anyway, Keaton had only done comedies up to then, I hadn't seen Clean and Sober yet.  Burton insisted that his Batman was not going to be the Adam West type, leaning heavy on Miller's Dark Knight Returns.  But KEATON???  so yes, there was a lot of discussion.  I remember my my comment was along the lines of "after seeing Clean and Sober, I think Keaton can do it."

You should have seen the B5/DS9 talks going on.  The anger from JMS and some from Ron THorton about how B5 was pitched to Paramount who turned it down, then came up with their own Space Station based show afterwards.  That and Video Toaster issues doing SPFX on the Amiga.

Fun times.  I was more active on boards back then.

I think overall this is a non story,but what the it is

Timberlake wants to play The Riddler

Justin Timberlake has said he would be interested in playing The Riddler in the forthcoming Batman v Superman movie.

Since Ben Affleck signed up to play Batman in the film many fans have objected to his casting and a petition to have him removed now has more than 85,000 signatures.

But JT jumped to his defence and during an interview on New York radio station Fresh 102.7 the star said: "Ben Affleck as Batman, I like it. I worked with Ben last summer and I've seen his process. I think he's a brilliant filmmaker. I think he's an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people."

When asked if the he could be tempted to play Robin alongside Affleck's Batman, the singer said: "Not a chance in hell. I ain't playin' Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie."

However, Timberlake then added: "Now villain. I'll tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough, is the Riddler. The Riddler is my favourite villain.

"The Riddler was like a sociopath. He was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I wanna play proper crazy. I'm ready. The Riddler. Gimme a call."

Criminal genius The Riddler made his comic book debut in 1948 and was famously played in 1995's Batman Forever by Jim Carrey.

Director Zack Snyder announced at the San Diego Comic Convention in July that Batman will join Superman in the sequel to Man of Steel and it is reported that shooting for the movie will start in Michigan early next year.

Jim Carrey?  *urk*. Frank Gorshin is the definitive Live Action. (My feelings of the superiority of most of the animated versions is well known here)

You know what the Affleck outrage is similar to?  The outrage when Heath Ledger was cast as The Joker in TDK.

Give it a chance.

Great comparison. Couldn't remember my initial reaction to that news so I found the thread and we were all pretty okay with that one.

There's more to the internet than Gaming Trend.

yes, but it is a cold, dark place out there, and you never know when you might run into a Wandering Hepcat.  they are very fruitful, you know.

I've not seen a lot of outrage to Affleck/Batman.  But then I was on the Internet when Keaton was slated for Batman. Now, there was some outrage that turned out not to be warranted. After that, I am always willing to wait and see.  Daredevil, that I have lots of problems with, was not bad because of Afflect's acting from what I remember.

I think after TOS and TAS,i will stick Star Trek 1-6 movies in before starting on TNG,then after TNG watch Star Trek 7-10

For Star Trek 1, I would suggest the Director's Cut, not the Theater release, if you can find it. It was, IMO, a better version. A bit tighter and less purple cloud.

Picked this up yesterday for real cheap at Best Buy (price match, reward zone, gift card brought it down to $2). Then I went through the story mode. Pretty good, light plot, fun dialog. I enjoyed seeing dome of the non-traditional looks for the Elseworld heroes.

Now on to battles to see the endings. Any reason to keep the game after that?

Ok. Either I am just a sucker for all things Bat-animated, or else this is actually good. I've watched the first two episodes now, and decided that a gun using Alfred works quite well in this set up.

Anyone else watching? It wasn't until the ign reviews started coming in that I did, it's now On Demand from CN.

(Disclaimer: I've also enjoyed B:TAS, Justice League, Brave and the Bold, appreciate the 1966 Batman as a comedy, and like the Terry Gennis Batman Beyond character much more than Batman Beyond as a show)

Quote from: Fireball1244 on July 24, 2013, 01:40:08 PM

"No one would have believed in the last years of the nineteenth century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinised and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinise the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water."

In fact, the rest of the opening paragraph is excellent, as well:

"With infinite complacency men went to and fro over this globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter. It is possible that the infusoria under the microscope do the same. No one gave a thought to the older worlds of space as sources of human danger, or thought of them only to dismiss the idea of life upon them as impossible or improbable. It is curious to recall some of the mental habits of those departed days. At most terrestrial men fancied there might be other men upon Mars, perhaps inferior to themselves and ready to welcome a missionary enterprise. Yet across the gulf of space, minds that are to our minds as ours are to those of the beasts that perish, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic, regarded this earth with envious eyes, and slowly and surely drew their plans against us."

Even better when listening to Richard Burton recite a good deal of it in Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds

Unfortunately not. frown  Nobody has found a way to get this to work on the PS3.

I believe there is a way for it to work on the Wii though, believe it or not. Someone has been taking the weekly custom releases and converting them to work on the Wii. I have no idea how you get them to work on the Wii, however, or if you need to mod your console or not.

All I know is that if you have an Xbox and the old version of RB3, there are no mods needed at all.

Thanks for the answer. Not the one I wanted, but thanks

Hockey Thugs! It works!  Not like those stupid Dark Knight movies where the villain count is low and there can be a story developed.
