  1. I wish my younger daughter wasn't afraid of the first movie. I'd love to see this in the theater with her. Maybe I'll try her again with the first movie.
  2. I'm going to send you the Premiere files and media for my 40 minute documentary to see how long it takes you to render it on your beast. To which you will respond 3 minutes later with a YouTube link.
  3. It is an interesting dilemma. Can you wildly vary these movies in tone if you're going to integrate all of them at some point? All these movies have humor and goofiness in them. But Thor 3 jumped off a cliff in this regard. These movies are ridiculous to begin with, but Thor 3 just said "screw it" to the point where stuff just didn't make sense at all, but it was OK, because it was a comedy. Then the Thor 3 movie narratively rolls directly into Infinity War where Thor is blown to smithereens while crying over his dead brother's carcass. I thought it worked just fine. They can flip back and forth like that. They can have a DeadPool movie where he's always talking to the camera and then put him in Avengers and work him in without breaking the movie. And I think the same is true for the "look." Black Widow can use a "Minority Report" muted crazy blooming aesthetic and then throw her in an Avengers movie where it is all colorful. Although I don't think they "need" to do that. But I think it would work and would like to see it.
  4. I like stories with good characters and the people who make trailers never emphasize the characters. It is always the flash. I've learned not to be too rash in my reaction to trailers that do this because there might actually be good characters and dialog. I wish trailers like this would give me more to latch onto but I know it is hard to create trailers that do that. But I wish the main character projected more than just a Conan the Barbarian vibe.
  5. OMG, you should read the comment sections below news articles about this. It is like 98% hate. If Portman is all-in, then that makes me even more excited. Thinking actors aren't into the project is always worrisome. I can't believe Hopkins did Thor 3 because HE gave the impression that he was done with this stupid superhero bullshit. And by that I mean he literally said: "I've Done Two--That's Enough." -Anthony Hopkins Enough is enough, unless... its not?
  6. I'm very sensitive to political correctness. But Marvel gets a free pass on everything they do because it's usually great. A lot of people are rolling their eyes at a female Thor. Because they assume it is a forced mediocre progressive move. I might think that too if I didn't see Thor 3 and didn't read the comic. This is gonna be fantastic. But I totally get after the Bond announcement this would make eyes roll. I wish I could explain to them all that no, this is gonna be awesome.But I can already see the Rotten Tomatoes review bombers sharpening their tomatoes.
  7. I would love to see the pitch meeting to Natalie Portman for Thor 4. I've been under the impression that she was done with playing damsel characters for marvel. I imagine Hemsworth and Waititi had a looooong dinner with her trying to convince that things would be different. It will be funny. It will be tragic. You're gonna die of cancer. You're gonna save the world. It's gonna be hilarious.
  8. I'm not saying that "blade" needs to bulk up to kill vampires. I'm saying that Ali needs to bulk up to play the lead in a superhero movie. I'm pretty Peter Quill didn't need a six pack to fly his ship in the first Guardians movie either.
  9. Wow. This all looks awesome. Top to bottom. In Kevin Feige we trust. I have to admit though, Ali seems a little skinny for Blade. I assume he'll bulk up.
  10. That's actually my favorite part of this. It's like hulk in the comics where Banner is so frail and weak. The juxtaposition of a dying human who can turn into the most powerful superhero is awesome. Love that story.
  11. Obviously not as familiar as you are. My concern is that they boxed themselves in a corner with Asgard being gone, Odin being dead, and Loki being dead. What percentage of those "many" stories work given the above?
  12. Makes me wonder what the Guardians Franchise is gonna do with Thor. I thought they were getting away from Thor movies. With Asgard gone, Odin gone, Loki gone, Thor fat and hanging out with Guardians, the Thor franchise doesn't seem in prime position for a sequel. Unless it is a transitional movie, toward a female Thor. And fat Odinson sticks with Guardians or something.
  13. I'm not a big fan of this franchise. I've just never thought the Bond character was that personable. Just a robot hero, although I have certainly enjoyed many of the movies. If they just replace a male robot with a female robot this is completely uninteresting. But if they take this change as an opportunity to upend the whole franchise in an interesting way, which I don't think they'll do, color me interested.
  14. Saw Spiderman. Thought it was really good. Enjoyed the personal stories way more than the first movie. Liked the iron Man 3 -esque plot. Can't wait to see what the future holds.
  15. The good news is the longer you wait, the greater the impact of your upgrades. I can't edit 4k video with my rig, I need to use proxies. Which is fine. I have no problem with that. Not having to use proxies isn't really that beneficial. If anything, buying a new rig will just make transcoding proxies faster. I think I'd still render proxies anyway if I thought it would get me better performance, which it would. I use SteamLink to play PC games on my TV. Not sure if I lose anything between my PC and my TV in doing that, making upgrading for games less beneficial. I played DOOM through SteamLInk and it was awesome.
  16. I have one question about fire damage and frost damage. If CLAYMORE IS (Physical +300) and ICE SWORD is (Physical +150, Frost +150), aren't they equal? Or if an enemy has a frost weakness, there is some sort of weakness multiplier that puts the frost sword above. I am mowing down Irithyll of the Boreal Valley right now. But I'm cheating a little by now using the the BOW a lot more to clear the way. Feels like cheating, but it also changes up the game a bit making it even more fun.
  17. I guess the good news is I haven't brought in help yet and I haven't used embers, I've stockpiled them. Also, I just destroyed the ""High Lord Wolnir" so fuck him. The war rages on. Love this game. Thanks Romier.
  18. Geez, the developers really loved contra huh? Wow. Talk about a spiritual successor.
  19. My computer is still so damn fast, I can't justify another build. Though I don't play a lot of games on it anymore. I've never had a computer so long. This is my best computer ever.
  20. I know that people love the bosses. But they represent the potential end of the game for me every time. Every time I'm like "This is it, this is the end of Dark Souls 3 for me, if I don't get by this, I don't get to play this awesome game anymore." So far of course that hasn't happened. But I know how good you are at this game. So you saying you had a hard time pretty much ensures I'm done for. We'll see. Last night I accidentally walked into a boss fight "High Lord Wolnir" ... meaning the level seemed short to me, I was not prepared for another boss battle so soon. I got one-hit killed. I don't even remember him touching me. I just died somehow and was like WTF. If this guy can one-hit kill me I'm screwed.
  21. I thought Maleficent was a great movie. A wonderful surprise. I much prefer these darker alternative takes instead of a live-action remake. I really like the movie Mulan because I'm a sucker for the underdog hero stories. Just can't get enough of those. The trailer did not touch on my favorite parts of the original in that way. It made her look like more of a badass like Black Widow. I've had enough of "Females in leather who kick eveyone's asses because, well, because that's awesome that's why" characters. I prefer the approach in the original where she wasn't a bad-ass female character. She was a competent, motivated, and smart character who was over her head and yet somehow continuously surprised herself and others. Like Captain America in the first movie before he got his powers. Or like in Karate Kid... you never got the feeling that Daniel was the best. But on this day everyone underestimated him and on this day he was the best. I hope they don't make her a ninja, because then that dilutes the tension of her being in peril. Also, seeing her on the battlefield wearing nothing but some sort of robe or dress with her long hair flowing in the wind, reminds me of videogames where woman are completely inappropriately dressed but they look beautiful so that's all that matters. Its what they do with Black Widow. She doesn't need any type of shield or vest because, she would look less hot that way. I hope that scene is explained by her being attacked at an inopportune time, and not because she is some invisible chick who doesn't need proper warrior attire.
  22. What a bitch this was. The abyss watchers. I was a little afraid this boss would be the end of my Dark Souls experience. Because I knew that no buff or leveling would help me. I need to PLAY better. Dodge better. Be smarter. And I wasn't sure I could do that. BUT I DID! Dodge. HIT HIT HIT. Run away. Regroup while they fight each other. Dodge. HIT HIT HIT. Run Away. Regroup. YAY! Beat him. And now I have new areas to explore which is my favorite part of this game. The fun continues! I can't believe how big this game is. I checked the walkthrough and I haven't scratched the service yet. And I read a message on the floor of this boss fight that said "The real game starts here." What?! I don't know if they're saying the game is going to get harder or funner or both but I'm scared.
  23. Damn this game keeps on giving. At the point where my advanced leveling is allowing me to die a lot less. That is until I got to the snow area. These guys kicked my ass. Just regular frigging guys at the beginning of the level just destroy me. I googled it and found out it is a DLC area. Wonder if it is not level appropriate, but fuck that level. Can't get enough of this game. Its just Bloodborne all over again. I find inventory management to be annoying though. Switching weapons. Sometimes I'll over-load myself by adding two weapons, making myself slow, just so I don't have to go into the menu system to switch out weapons. And I find it annoying to change my outfit, tracking down the best outfit against curses and poison while maintain proper load. I wish I could create presets or there was an "optimize for poison" button. I never use my embers. Even when I need them. Since I die so often, I'm afraid of using an ember, dying, and wasting my stuff. So I never use it. That kinda sucks. Or maybe it is good. I don't know. I used an ember once and it actually worked and I won. But I feel I got super lucky. I bet 90% of the time I'd just waste it.
