Re: Thor: Ragnarok Teaser Trailer

So Led Zeppelin in this trailer and the one for the new King Arthur movie. Not that it isn't cool, but they used to be notorious for not letting their music be used for just about anything.

Re: Youtube advertiser's exodus and demonetization

I've seen a few videos by YouTubers who have pointed out that Google/YouTube has tended to de-monetize videos that are conservative or right wing while giving leftist video producers a more or less free pass. I might be getting this confused with how they required people to be logged in to view some...

Re: Logan

Minor note, but Logan, Professor Xavier, and X-23 were in Oklahoma City when Charles had a seizure. Their journey starts in Mexico, they go through El Paso, Texas, stop in Oklahoma City, OK. That's where the professor has his incident. They move on to the farm(somewhere, it's not really stated wher...

Re: Logan

When the bullet was first shown in the movie I assumed he planned on shooting it into his brain through his nose. Have it ricochet around inside his indestructible skull, with no way for his healing factor to push the bullet out. Sneeze it out? Or cough? I don't remember where (in a movie? maybe an...

Re: Logan

After re-watching the trailer, I just noticed that some the vehicles being used were marked as police cruisers. Were local law enforcement agencies involved as well, or were the Transgien operatives just faking? I'm pretty sure there was at least a stretch where real law enforcement was involved. P...

Re: Logan

I'm a bit surprised that no-one has picked up on the fact that in X-Men Origins, Wolverine was shot in the head twice with adamantium bullets which destroyed his memories but left him more or less intact, yet against his clone one bullet blew his brains out. Yeah, that was ridiculous. Either one or...

Re: PacRim vs. Skull Island Monster's RAR

The MUTOs from Godzilla might be an issue but I think the skull crawlers would be good practice. The "MUTOS" are big and tend to have that EMP effect. It's more of a big deal in the novelization of Godzilla (he can't start his atomic breath because of it) but they seem to have to keep on t...

Re: KONG (spoilers possible)

In the Peter Jackson Kong the apes were partners with the ancient Atlantean civilization of humans. A similar thing could fit with the current timeline with there being something odd about the humans on Skull Island. I'm presuming it will fit in with Mothra at some point in the next Godzilla movie o...

Re: Everything Not Quite Right With - The End Scenes from Rogue One SPOILERS and yes its contains the Vader scene!

I originally saw a question in regard to the scene as to whether it was for the Fanboys? My initial response would be, "yes, but it is still cool". In hindsight, I'm starting to think that besides the Fanboy wank elements it also works to show how much effort Vader is putting forth at that...

Re: Logan

Honestly, continuity wise this movie is a bit of a mess, in fact some parts do not make sense. For example the events of X-men 1 are wiped out as per Days of Future Past and Apocalypse, yet they are still referenced there. So they cannot be part of the same timeline. This leads me to think this bei...

I'm to about episode 8. Like most of the Netflix Marvel shows I can only go so long before I have to take a bit of a break. With Iron Fist I'm not sure how long it'll be until I feel like going back to watch the rest. I think Vendetta covers the issues with this show very well, and I agree with Gene...

Re: Job hunter’s interview cancelled after she asked about her salary

Is that even legal? Up here it's not - while there are plenty of indirect methods an employer can use to discourage employees from talking amongst themselves, they are not allowed to flat out make it a part of company policy, nor demand that you do so. If it's illegal no one has challenged it, and ...

Re: Job hunter’s interview cancelled after she asked about her salary

If you're being headhunted, the conversation usually starts with 'what would it take to get you to move'. Yeah, but that's a different scenario to applying for an advertised position with a different etiquette. I think the usual is to wait until they offer you the job, see what they are offering in...

It's not like they try to hide what their employees make....wait... My employer does, and it is against company policy to discuss how much we make amongst ourselves.

I forgot to mention the Hueys. In the '76 Kong they shoot the shit out of Kong with him only getting a little payback. I think this movie was that payback. :D It's nice to not have a super sad depressing Kong movie for a change. I think I would have liked the character more growing up but 5 out of t...

Re: KONG (spoilers possible)

I think some of the main characters can be linked back to those from other Kong movies. Brie Larson's photographer is reminiscent of Jeff Bridges character from the '76 Kong. IIRC, he was a environmentalist that stowed away on the ship and talked his way into staying on as a photographer. Tried to h...

I do have a few logical issues with it (I know, Kong =/=logic), namely, we see a Super Stallion, four Hueys and what I think is a Sea Knight take off from the ship, all parked on the deck. A few minutes later there are somehow seven Hueys buzzing around. Weird. Also, during the fight in the boneyar...

To be fair, the storyline of the LMDs (Deltites) trying to replace everyone in SHIELD is a fairly old story.
