Re: Avengers: Age of Ultron

I liked it. It has issues, but I liked it over all. I felt the Ultron story was exactly what I thought it would be above. It felt like it came on too fast and it wrapped up too neatly at the end. That said the depiction of Ultron was fun and I actually enjoyed that he was a twisted version of Tony's...

Re: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

I admit I was being a bit hyperbolic in my previous post. I was never saying Olmos SHIELD is "bad". My problem is they all appear to be big hypocrites. They are the anti-secrets SHIELD. That seems to be their mantra. Everyone should be out in the open because secrets were their downfall previously w...

Okay that is just the opposite reaction to everything. I don't know what to say other than I disagree.

Re: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Yeah this whole May being upset at Coulson for keeping secrets is some season one level BS. They are secret agents in a secret organization. It's totally okay as long as she is in on all the secrets? Is she really that petty? It felt really weird coming from May. Bobbi and Mack's comments that they ...

Re: Netflix's Daredevil

Agreed. If they do another season I hope they give us an episode about her to get in her head. I feel like we spent most of our time seeing how she was helping Fisk come out of his shell, but not why she wanted to be with Fisk. I don't know maybe it was there and I didn't pick up on it. I'll have to...

Re: Netflix's Daredevil

Well they have a tremendous amount of ground to cover in these episodes so it doesn't really slow down to reflect on thing. I think the take away is not that the subplots were dropped but that the romance in all those situations failed. Karen wasn't suited for either of them and I think the narrativ...

Re: Netflix's Daredevil

Ziryab, I don't think you can go wrong reading the Frank Millar run and his "Man Without Fear" mini series. It's the run that form the modern depiction of Daredevil. Before that era Daredevil was much more light hearted and swashbuckling. Daredevil has had many good writers over the years. The stuff...

Re: Netflix's Daredevil

This is my favorite of the "TV" offerings from Marvel so far(and I really liked Agent Carter). It's definitely a much better fit for a Netflix show considering how dark and gritty they made the theme. The Fisk stuff is probably my favorite part. I can't believe they did such a good job with him. The...

I want to hate new SHIELD so much, but they have Kirk Acevedo and The Admiral on their side. Two actors who are awesome. They are laying the Civil War stuff on pretty thick though huh.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

The two characters did appear to go to "naked space" with their clothing on though so that's notable. I guess in the BFT universe "naked space" is a very conservative place now.

Re: The Official Gundam Build Fighters Try Anime Thread Mk-V

Try will end up as a bad Gundam show no matter what its fans say. I hear Destiny, 0083, AGE, IGLOO, 08th, ZZ calling you guys :) Those are all bad? They all had their good parts and aren't the best Gundam has to offer, but I'm a bit bummed that you lump them together as a collection of garbage. I l...

Re: Ep. 157 - The Tryhards Halftime Report!

yeah I guess all I was saying there is that I can understand all those complaints, but for those reasons they just don't bug me. Since I was watching it in a relative vacuum I had assumed that the buzz was positive for the show since I was liking it so much.

Re: Ep. 157 - The Tryhards Halftime Report!

I do agree with gunform1010 on the last part though. Granted it wasn't covered due to it being Episode 20 that just came out, but instead of focusing on the team aspect of the series and showing that the Power of Friendship (trademark) - a staple of this type of show - could overcome an angsty hate...

Re: Ep. 157 - The Tryhards Halftime Report!

Thanks for summarizing it and saving me the grief. I think the guys nailed it. It's a shounen show. All that wouldn't be out of place in a shounen show. I wonder if people would be as critical if it was Luffy, Goku or Jo Jo pulling the same stunts.

Re: Ep. 085: Alien series

For the bottom three movies if I was forced to rewatch them I'd rate them in the following order: 1. Alien 3 2. Prometheus 3. Alien 4 Alien 3 for all it's problem has some things going for it. Charles Dutton and Charles Dance are awesome in the flick (as was Sigourney). The location of Fury 161 is w...

Re: Marvel's Agent Carter

This show has been great. I think the smaller episode run really helped it out since it kept the show on a good pace. No episode felt like filler. I kind of hope they do this sort of thing more often for the smaller Marvel properties. The fact that this show was a period piece really help it feel fr...

Re: Ep. 157 - The Tryhards Halftime Report!

I'm curious to see why people are so negative toward the series (considering I'm liking it so much), but then again I'd rather not turn my eyes into burnt out holes by reading hate threads. I would figure people would give it some slack considering it's a free stream of a current Japanese show. The ...

Re: Ep. 157 - The Tryhards Halftime Report!

I think I'm in the minority definitely but I actually like Try better than the original series mostly because it embraced that sport tournament feel. I agree with SBR that I'm digging the 3 of 3 fights and it definitely gave me a King Of Fighters vibe. Also it helps showcase teamwork and tactics rat...
