Links?  I don't know what you are talking about international interviews.

I think Superman Returns had huge potential and the scene where he is flying and using heat vision to melt the glass and protect people is just PERFECT superman and creative outside the box thinking about Superman's powers.  I think Man of Steel had someone what good fight scenes, but in the end it was Superman just using brute force.  I really want to see Superman be creative and smart with his powers.  Using all of them for outthink, and maneuver his opponents.  But very few movies show that side of Superman.  He should be having fun showing the futility of the bad guys evil actions to them.  That is an important trait of Superman's. 

Batman also has a style of fighting.  It is misdirection that leads to fear and mistakes.  Batman toys with enemy is a very brutal way, picking his targets eliminating them from biggest treat to weakest, and uses the weakest to get information...But it isn't about showing futility and invulnerability...but about causing as much fear as possible.

The Flash is the community hero.  He is about building a better community and that includes trying to reason with his villains and form relationship with them.  He understands above anyone else that these are humans and people and if you can reach them they can be saved from their life of crime.  Superman has that hope too, but he tends to be more global.

Wonder Woman is the warrior.  Get the job done with as few casualties as possible, but she is like Batman and will give no quarter.  But she is also an ambassador which means she struggles with how she would like to handle the situation and how she should handle it. 

If you can't get these 4 characters right, you can NEVER get Justice League right.

Yes, it is true.  I know about the Red Sparrow program and I would assume that too originally.  But then they had the family dinner scene and that was too comfortable to be just we were close in that program...it seemed to be really playing up the family aspect of the movie.  So there is that.  I wonder if they are setting this prequel up to allow for a future Black Widow replacement.  You know one with an actual Russian actress and accent.

I thought the white eyes were weird, but then I realized that if you were truly trying to hide your identity hiding your eyes might be wise and important.  Plus it plays on the fear and alienation of the character...it makes Batman less human and more scary.

As for the DC Movie Universe, I think they don't have to give it up, just make better movies in the universe.  The Aquaman movie wasn't great but it was watchable.  Shazam was worse than Aquaman, but watchable.  Start populating that universe and slowly make it less dark would be fine. 

DC as a comic company (in recent years) has seemed to have more powerful heroes but a darker universe.  Like when things go bad, it is almost never a small thing, and events that happen can get twisted fast.

I like how Mission Impossible typically feels like old fashion film making, but Marvel usually doesn't.  It isn't a knock or anything, but the Mission Impossible series has been hitting so many home runs lately, it is a better and franchise in my opinion than James Bond. 

As for Black Widow, it will be interesting to see if she can carry a movie on her own.  If they emphasize the spy elements, the lore, and world building, it will work because it will be truly about Black Widow's character.  If it is just an action movie with a mission then I don't know what to think.  It was kinda silly and annoying the idea of the big fight between the two sister and find out they are sister.  Like, I don't know who writes this stuff, but that is just stupid. 

You know what would be a better scene, them actually talking, but trying to assess if the other is trying to kill them or not.  Like Black Widow's "sister" is doing subtle things like positioning herself to have an advantage IF they fight, or trying to poison her and Black Widow is quietly countering the situation because she is just better at it.

I will not be happy until we get the Super Mario World Dinosaurs. The triceratops bosses and then those two hit dragon things.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch/Wii U)
« on: November 30, 2019, 05:23:41 AM »
Breath of the Wild is unapologetically hard at the beginning of the game.  It very much feels like the Original Zelda where every encounter (or screen) is dangerous and can kill you.  It is ruthless and exploring the unknown is dangerous.  It is fun, but because I haven't played this kind of action game in awhile, dodging and timing is tricky.  I have seen the game over screen an embarrassing number of times.  The experience is great though.  It is the first time I can truly say a 3D Zelda felt like the 2D Zelda's when it comes to exploring.  And getting from point A to point B can somewhat time consuming, a little frustrating, and perhaps dare say occasionally boring/work.  The world and experience is amazing so far.  I can see why it is such a brilliant and amazing game.  I can also see where some people see the faults.

Thanks for the advice all. You have been helpful.  I would have gotten Odyssey from your advice without the sale.  But Zelda is going to be fun.

Decided to go with the sell so Breathe of the Wild. Is the expansion content necessary or is it not really that big of a deal.

I understand the opinion of Sunshine but why Odyssey?  I know many complain about the number of moons and some of the tasks being too hard or obtuse.

I have actually read several posts online saying Mario Odyssey is a better game than Breath of the Wild in structure, mechanics, and design...but Breath of the Wild is just so innovative.  I am kinda sad because Nintendo USA decided not to give us Odyssey at 30% discount so that is affecting my decision somewhat. 

I am curious why Magiccow thinks Odyssey is one of the worst 3D Mario games.

Thanks for the advice.  I was leaning toward Odyssey because it seems like an more casual experience.  I am not a completionist so I don't need to get everything in both games.  But I do need something that I can play for 15 minutes or 30 minutes and put it down.  Maybe Breath of the Wild is that experience, but maybe it isn't.  I just know that Breath of the Wild is a super revolutionary game for Nintendo and Odyssey is the perfect refinement of the Super Mario 3D formula.  Thanks for the help.

I am going to get one new game for my new switch this weekend.  I can't decide between Breath of the Wild or Odyssey.  I need something that can be casually played and just pure Nintendo magic.  I love both series equally.  Thoughts?

I have struggled to get on Disney + it often says that the internet connection is too slow.  I read an article describing that they had no idea how much demand they were going to have and basically the core program was under performing.  That they were going to be rewriting the program from the ground up within the next 2 or three weeks.  I really want to watch some shows on the service, but so far I have only been able to watch like 4 full episodes of various shows and movies.

Or it could just be a dark Blue and Grey color films better and it has nothing to do with being kid friendly but designing a costume that will look dynamic on film.  I mean the previous Batman Costumes don't really scream dynamic images.

At the moment Disney+ has positioned itself as the definitive secondary streaming service it really is a specialty service for families. The people saying that the service doesn’t have good original programs right now are right. The lineup is weak. But the potential is very strong.

I wouldn't mind seeing a younger Nathan Drake storyline.  Since that won't mess with the games stories and can therefore build cannon on top of the games instead of retelling stories.

Much better design and much better feel for the movie. Making Sonic an alien is an odd choice. Also they showed too much of the humor and jokes I think. But Jim Carrey looks like he is having fun so that should be interesting.

Saw that the Hulu original Runaway series is on D+ already. How about Cloak and Dagger?  I hope original exit Star Wars shows up eventually.

Disney+ is out.  The design and the interface is good.  Though, I have had some problems with series and account buttons overlapping.  I have also had some problems with loading and the design getting stuck.  I don't know if it is a problem on my end or the problem is with the servers and bandwidth.  I am curious if others are having problems and if Disney has enough servers and bandwidth for this service.  I am sure they will get things ironed out.

As it is, I have only watched one show and one short.  I watched the Jeff Goldblum show just to see if service was working.  It is a strange show, and I am not quite sure what I watched or if it was good.

Yes The Batman got better and better as they figured out what they wanted to be.  Batman: TAS and Justice League are my gold standard for any comic book animation.

The Batman got better after season 1.  I think season 1 was them trying to figure out what they wanted to be and season 2 really showed they figured it out.

You know the Popeye's Chicken Sandwich stabbing, I almost feel like Popeye's is happy for the negative news.  I mean how many people are thinking, damn I need to try that sandwich if people are willing to stab someone for it.  But the truth is, there is NO WAY, that stabbing happened ONLY because two adults wanted a Chicken sandwich.  It's a CHICKEN SANDWICH, from a fast food place.  Adrock's review sounds exactly like what I would expect.
