Fuuuck!

I like parts of Buffy Season 6.

 

It's all right. 

post #3056 of 3585
That's nice, Boone.

I wasn't talking to you, Brad, I was talking to Bort!

Tara's death?

 

The worst.

Ahhh but Willow's vengeance? Pretty great. I mean I know that fit into some trope and everyone got angry but dark Willow skinning a guy? Yes please.

Henry Cavill has broken his silence.

Dear followers,

It is time to finally set the record straight in this moustache fiasco. Pictured above, is not a set on MI6 but is in fact the latest in a series of weapons being designed by Warner Bros and Paramount Studios to combat the entity know as "Henry Cavill's Moustache". There has been no discussion over whether to shave or not to shave for the JL reshoots, simply a relentless campaign to put an end to the seemingly inexorable conquest of this despotic 'stache. It is not a question of IF I should shave - it is a question of how can we possibly be victorious against such a beast without bringing our own doom raining down upon us.

Walt's response?

 

Predictable.

My love for villains being skinned alive by powerful witches out for revenge for their lover is very well known around here. I've never hid it. My second less talked about love is witches being talked off the edge by their best friend since childhood who know the Snoopy dance.

I actually caught a rerun of this recently and while I always loved that show there are so many things in it that bother me now. Xander is much less endearing now. He suffers the most from Whedon speak. There is still great stuff there but honestly I think I prefer Angel more now. I don't know if calling it more mature is the right word because.....that feels silly but it feels more polished or something.

I cannot ever imagine watching that Buffy TV show but, to each his own..

Well.....you could probably IMAGINE it.

post #3070 of 3585
Well....yeah :P

I cannot imagine INVESTING in it, I guess is a better way to say it..
post #3071 of 3585
It's clever, quirky and well put together.

And considering it wasn't on a prestige cable network, Buffy/Angel has a very strong authorial voice and through line.

Man of Steel 2 should be an adaptation of the Manchester Black/What's So Funny about T.J.A.W. storyline.
 
It would accomplish several things:
 
1.)Give Superman some time to reflect on the detritus of the Snyderverse version and discard it in favor of his "classical" outlook ... basically, having the character self-correct its own portrayal onscreen in a movie.  
 
2.)Cure the "grimdark" ethos that has permeated Superman by forcing the audience to accept that Superman being a "boyscout" is a positive attribute, not an outdated anachronism .... specifically, why executing bad guys in the street, while satisfying, is not a good route for superheroes to take.  It's a self-reflective moment for the audience, shining a light on their own mob mentality.  It was a really powerful sequence in the comic, and if executed well, could be just as powerful on screen.  
 
3.)Give us a non-brawler superhero opponent.  Killgrave and Edgeofmyfork have been badly needed breaths of fresh air in terms of villainy for Marvel specifically because they are NOT fucking brawlers.  Luther could have filled that role, but he was not compelling in BvS.
 
4.)It is a story about ideas.  Much of the DCEU, with the notable exception of Wonder Woman, has drawn from comics that may have been classics, but were not exactly "philosophical" in tone.  More idea driven stories, please.

I enjoyed it.  Not as much as Angel, but quite a bit.  I think you would be surprised.  It took me a long time to get past the intentionally stupid name and boot it up.  I would say The Zeppo was the episode where I realized I loved the show.

I watched Buffy from the start, so I was 13 at the time and it ended when I was 19. Those were formative years for the ol' Bart. And while I defend Whedon in general, because successive projects have shown that his style can adapt and be palatable to a mainstream audience, Buffy is him in a pretty raw form.

 

Basically, I would never recommend Buffy to a grownass man in 2017. And if I did, it would have to be a curated experience that skipped most if not all of season 1.

Saw it in my early 20s.  Still thought it was good, though a bit dated at the time.

 

You can appreciate a work of art even though you've progressed past the phase in which it would speak to you directly.  

post #3076 of 3585

We're still fucking talking about Buffy?

 

 

EEEEHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

post #3077 of 3585
But there are sections of it that now read as incredibly tedious and literal!
post #3078 of 3585

So what are the current odds Whedon's Batgirl actually gets made?

post #3079 of 3585

Zero if Boone has anything to do with it.

If Jaime v. Grey Worm fight speculation and Mothra and Rodan's breath weapons (or lack thereof) are fodder for CHUD discussion, an aging poorly, but at the time culturally relevant, Joss Whedon show can be as well!

I hope he adapts the Wonder Woman script and uses the rumored strip club scene.  As I'm sure we all do.  

 

...right?

The first two things are about current or in development projects! The latter is about something from YEARS AGO.

 

EHHHHHHHH

I first watched Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster (which featured Rodan+Godzilla+Mothra vs. Ghidorah) when I was four years old.  Their respective fighting styles and the merits and detriments are an issue that I thoroughly discussed years ago.  The topic is old and stale to me.  For you, it is new and fresh and worthy of discussion.  For someone who hasn't seen Buffy, that show might not be an old and stale topic, even though it is to you.

I didn't watch it until I was a grownass, in about 2010.  I was extremely skeptical going in, but it is still great.  At least from S2 on. I'd cosign on cutting out nearly all of the first season, not out of grownassness so much as 2017ness.  With all the streaming options we're drowning in nowadays, it's hard to tell someone they need to wade through 12 hours of mediocrity to get to the 100 that are good. 

 

That said, Fraid, do that shit.

It's what put her on the map.  And as far as I know, still handily the best role/performance she's ever had.

I understood that reference, and agree.  

post #3098 of 3585

When I saw characters with names like Willow, Xander, Faith, and Angel, I knew that I would never be able to watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

 

Now, give me a show where characters are slinging monikers like Ser Gar Ban Zo of the Blood Hamlets, and I'm all yours.

Look what you fucking people have done to the DC thread.
