Scott's a good guy.

Much the same thing could be said of Plan 9 from Outer Space.

So I'm CRUSHING some pasta salad right now, and you'd better believe there's olives in this bad boy.  Also I guess sun dried tomatoes?

post #5307 of 5563
Kalamata olives or get to fuck.
post #5308 of 5563

I don't know what that is.  They're black.

post #5309 of 5563

Fuck that noise. Stuffed green olives.

It would be amazing if this became the Millennial generation's Rocky Horror, with smart ass teens and twentysomethings going to midnight showings in superhero cosplay after pre-drinking at that one cool uncle's house. I'd love for Justice League to be so bad that it becomes immortal.

kalamata- aka: Greek Olives. The bigger, sometimes pitted ones. Much better than black

Vince Vaughn as Batman.

I-I-I-I just can't. I can't. I have to go to another thread.
post #5318 of 5563
Wait, who wanted Vaughn as Batman?
post #5319 of 5563

I mean, Brawl on Cell Block 99...

What did I just watch?  And what's with the color grading?

post #5322 of 5563
Vince Vaughn is... Car Puncher!
post #5323 of 5563
He is kind of a McRib of an actor..

The next movie from the Bone Tomahawk guy.

post #5325 of 5563

Wasn't really into Bone Tomahawk. 

post #5326 of 5563

The point is there's worse choices for a big beefy bruiser than 6'5 Vaughn.  

 

Like Jon Hamm.

post #5327 of 5563

Christmas Hamm. 

 

White Christmas.

 

Black Mirror!

 

Great episode. 

post #5328 of 5563

Did you just have a stroke and then die?

post #5329 of 5563

I may have seen something flash before my eyes. 

 

oh look, a bright shiny ball!

post #5330 of 5563
Ok someone definitely call him some help.

Anyway Justice League.
post #5331 of 5563
Carno, tell us if having a stroke before watching it makes Justice League a better movie, okay?

Tim League.

 

Kinda kooky.

 

Justice Smith?

 

Up and coming.

Only if you understand slurred speech. 

post #5333 of 5563

Vaughan has weird lips just like Keaton! DRAFT HIM FOR BARTMAN!

 

I do feel for Affleck a bit tho. Batman was his childhood dream, but that dream became a booze drenched nightmare!

post #5334 of 5563

Batman and Daredevil were his favorites. I recall he did an introduction to a TPB of Kevin Smith's '98 Daredevil run and then later admitted playing the Man Without Fear was a mistake (I disagree).

Nah, Jon Hamm was perfect for Superman. Batman...meh.
post #5336 of 5563

Hey, y'know who recently got out of a big superhero franchise and might be a good fit for Batman? Hugh Jackman.

 

not serious.

post #5337 of 5563

As someone who openly professes their love for Bryan Singer's Superman Returns and strongly likes Snyder's Man of Steel... it fucking amazes me how they keep making the same mistake onscreen (and fail to see it). Take a lesson from John Byrne's Man of Steel run. Stop making him so powerful right off the bat. It's hard to relate to your hero when he feels no pain. Why Indiana Jones and John McClane continue to be so revered. They bled. Made mistakes that almost cost them their lives. And even after winning the fight, they were left limping, bruised, hurt - didn't just shrug it off and moved to the next action set-piece.

 

Donner and Reeve showed you can embrace the Boy-Scout and still make it work. The character always has a resurgence when the world is in turmoil. For every "Superman is so outdated!" claim (You are guaranteed to hear this once a decade), you hear an overabundance of "If only there really was a Superman" after a national tragedy and the world openly accepts the notion of a selfless hero. Hence why Sam Raimi's Spider-Man exploded the year after 9/11.

 

Always thought if I did a Superman movie (HA!), I'd address the hokiness of the character right off the bat.

 

Lois: Why are you doing all of this? You're just one person.

Superman: Because someone has to... and I can.

 

I'll shut up now.

post #5338 of 5563

While I don't think Superman being powered down is at all the problem with this Superman, I do prefer the Animated Series approach of scaling his power down dramatically.  As they as about that show, they wanted to give the impression that their Superman could probably be killed by a tremendous force of some kind, his strength has limits etc.  That way Livewire can shock him with lightning and it can hurt him a bit.

He should be Luthor, right?

post #5340 of 5563

He would be infinitely better, yes.

Dwayne Johnson. 

 

The Billionaire-Bastard Lex, even more topical now. Push the angle that Lex is Superman in all but his powers.

post #5342 of 5563
He can't be TWO DC villains. That's just MADNESS!
post #5343 of 5563

As non traditional Lex goes I quite like that one.  Dwayne has this very phony persona lately that would play into it perfectly.

Freeman?

More like Free-Roman.
post #5345 of 5563

Just that entire phony smiling nice guy who's beaming in happiness all the time.  Fuuuuuuuuck off buddy.

post #5346 of 5563

Is Freeman Tyrese?

post #5347 of 5563

Lex Luthor in today's environment would be on Social Media, streaming, tweeting out and instagramming bullshit like crazy. Always on the perceived "correct" side of the argument. Not unlike celebrities we've seen outed as hypocritical creeps (Weinstein, Spacey, Takei). Even has his own copyrighted slogan, "At LexCorp, Lex Cares."

 

That's how I see Johnson's Luthor.

post #5348 of 5563

It's perfect.

 

And Tyrese is legit insane. Like, I'm confident he needs to be diagnosed as bi polar at the very least.

post #5349 of 5563

Someone's gonna write a think-piece on Lois Lane's micro-arc in Justice League. It's problematic as hell and wildly untrue to the character

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
She's completely shut down since the death of Superman. She writes puff pieces about kittens instead of hard-hitting journalism. When Clark comes back. She apologizes to him for being so weak. It's only at the end of film, once he's back, that she has her mojo back and can write again. Basically, Lois Lane is presented as being nothing without her man in her life.


What a strong female character.
