  1. Old skool on 'roids… Me likey. But I wanna see people start putting some G-Tech meters on-the-dash of some of these restomods though--see how much of a quantitative difference the modern addons make.
  2. Thank you, good sir, for keeping us so entertained.... All hail Ming!
  3. Finally, a "more perfect" Mospeada replica bike--from Harley Davidson?!? , Did a bit of a double-take when I happened upon this pic. The H-D "Pan-America' ADV bike appears to be slated for 2020 release. With some aesthetic changes to the front windscreen; rear of the seat; the exhaust pipe.... , The US-spec version will have a big ol' 1250 cc engine stuffed in its frame. But what if it were optimized for light weight and handling, with something like a 500 cc powerplant, eh?
  4. Many thanks for the link. Yes, I suppose Alan Moore's thoughts on where the characters' arcs should go are pretty much irrelevant, as he intimated that he's effectively divorced himself from those earlier works. Still, I can't help but wonder: how much will his thoughts and feelings on the superhero genre have changed or evolved in the 25+ years between writing Watchmen and that interview? i.e. It begs the question: just how much "Birth of a Nation" is in that original incarnation of H.J., eh?
  5. Okay, so I was thinking about trying to check this series out. Then I happened upon a review article on ep 6, "This Extraordinary Being." Apparently, this episode has an surprise reveal, that changes the legacy of a major original character from the comic. Nah. Y'all can miss me wit that bullsh*t. At first blush, this seems like an attempt at doing something outlandish and nonsensical just for shock value, and to generate clicks/views. No wonder Alan Moore wants (Hollywood) people to leave his sh*t alone.
  6. Hehe, anyone who's seen a Formula 1 or other racecar from the 60's - 70's--back when aluminum monocoques were beginning to become the standard--without its bodywork will appreciate the "similarity." Actually, that's not really a fair comparison. This guy looks like he's actually got more protection...
  7. The thing that always "horrified" me about that movie was the ending. Even as a kid, I realized: in order for Maximillian to accommodate/save Dr. Reinhardt, there would have to have been some, er, hasty amputation(s).
  8. Speaking of Stallone's sequels...this one never gets old for me. Hah! Old. Just think, though: none of this would have been possible, if Stallone had stuck to the original book ending.
  9. Wow. Just. Wow. That is awesome! I can only think of the epic stop-motion animation battles that could--nay, should be made with such an impressive fleet.
  10. Aw, man.... Formula 1 champion Niki Lauda has passed, age 70. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/motorsports/f1-great-and-aviation-entrepreneur-niki-lauda-dies-at-70/ar-AABFeqU?OCID=ansmsnnews11
  11. Hehe, so they took the "Superman is a dick" theme, and cranked it up to 11... This one may be worth checking out. Saw the newest trailer; man, that bit with the fluorescent bulbs was cringe-tastic. All I could think was: Man, I dunno about the kid, but that waitress is effin' hard core; how is she not freakin' the fu** out?! Pretty sure I'd be like: OMG! OMG! Don't touch it! WTF! WTF! Fuuuuuuuuuuu!
  12. So how long before more super-soldiers start showing up in the MCU? We know the Russians and Americans have managed some degree of success in re-creating a serum to enhance soldiers. The Russians managed to do it with Bucky, and even upped the output somewhat with the 5 sleeper-soldiers--before Zemo kills 'em in their sleep. Was there any reason given for their not trying to create more? Also, AFAIK I think the significance of Gen. Ross having "dusted off" the super soldier program to give Emil Blonsky his enhancements in 2008's The Incredible Hulk has gone largely understated. I
