    Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3

    Well, I think we can all agree that what Sideshow Bob and his cohorts won't do is take this kind of public relations risk. Just remember what they did when that poor kid in Disney World got drowned by the alligator, or to the fat person on ABC. They took action immediately and pretty much stayed the course and let things die down. They figured there are two options here, either be loved by everyone or be hated by everyone. That way, you are never ever stuck on just one side if things went sideways. It's a good business move.

    Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3

    You know, somewhere, Sideshow Bob and his minions probably huddled together, and decided that there might be more skeletons in the closet, then they imagined the furor if Disney hired the guy back, and then later on, they found out something else about Gunn. Either in relation to his tweets or something else. And it went public. Then it would look horrible for Disney because they didn't vet him well enough. Basically Gunn is too risky an asset right now. Give it five or six years, if there are no controversies, they can probably figure out a way to bring him back on some smaller projects, and then go from there. Basically "rehabilitate" him like Mel Gibson.

    Yamato 2202

    I look at it this way, 2202 is better than a good number of shows out there. But it failed to live up to the standards set by 2199. The writing became overly dependent on the next big thing. Think about the progression in the series. Ep 1 had the new Gatlantis battleship, by Ep 6, the same battleship was cannon fodder. By Ep7, there were a million plus of these ships combining to form the stupid cannon. While to meet the threat, Earth turned to a cut and paste machine. It went from a few dozen new ships to more ships than you can possibly count. By the way, that million plus battleships could've sure been useful during Saturn. The puffing up of the threat level just make no sense at all, surely Gatlantis didn't discover their spamming power in the intervening three years, so what made the Gamillas able to fight Gatlantis evenly in the years before. Then there are the paper cutout bad guys. Zordar's motivations are just baffling. He wants to destroy the universe by making Teresa intervene... huh? The only redeeming thing right now is the Desslar storyline. Which IMO managed to boost the last four episodes. Which incidentally makes Gatlantis actually relevant. The main problem is that the bar is set too high. Just like it was for Macross Delta, it failed to live up to its predecessor, Macross F.

    Please don't mention GS. As subpar as Yamato 2202 has been, GS and GSD was just at a completely different level of bad.

    Yamato 2202

    you realize that means next year at the earliest. How many episodes did they saw were in this show. If it's a 26 episode run, it means two more sets of movies. Probably finishing theatrical release in March 2019. I just don't want to wait that long. BTW, I actually thought that this set was a bit of an improvement over the last four episodes. Primarily because of the Desslar development. The fleet battle was... meh.

    not yet, seem like those guys are still working on it. Although the raws have been around for a while now.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    80 J, according to what I heard on the drone digest podcast. The EU came up with a pretty interesting overriding rule which drone has to be registered. If the drone can impart a maximum of 80 J or more on a human body, it must be registered. I have to say, this is a pretty novel way to think about things. Rather than registering based on size or mass. Drone have to be registered based on the amount of damage that it can do going at its maximum velocity. I am curious how they come up with the definition and conditions for velocity, but I like the scheme.
  9. no way, now Infinity War is just perfect to transit out the old, Goodbye RDJ, Goodbye CE, Goodbye MR, Goodbye CH... and bring in the new blood, find some new guys to be X-men, and oh, we can keep RR. Cheap guys hopefully. Transferrance will just happen.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    Looks like there are two Rodans from the trailer. And the king still seems to have no arms... sad.... As for Godzilla, shouldn't he be collapsing into a heap from his own weight? The fatty.

    Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3

    Remember, building the future is all about tearing down the past. What was acceptable yesterday is abhorrent today. It's the case today, and will be the case in the future. Consider the movie Dr. No, there was a scene where James tells his helper (a black guy) to go fetch his shoes. Today, the screen writer would be fired for even thinking such a thing. But back in the old days, it was considered acceptable. People and the times change. Now, thanks to social media and the internet, everyone is an a-hole to someone. Too bad the public as a whole has taken on the persona of the thinnest skinned jerk that happens to be online and that's what sells. That said, Gunn did some outstanding work with GoG, it'll be interesting to see if he can be "rehabilitated" in the eyes of Hollywood. Hopefully, Disney will do something and promote some new talent to take over GoG. Well, they only have one more GtG movie to go.

    Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3

    You mean like a bunch of monkeys? If so, I'd agree. But the problem is that with the internet, it is literally so powerful that taking it away from people will enable all sorts of negatives. Only if the Winter Solider doesn't get to keep his arm, I wonder if Rocket can get Cap's shield. But I do hope that GoG is a stand alone without extras or anything like that. While I think the Thor/GoG part of IW was hilarious, Marvel shouldn't go to that well too often. Team ups should be selective and meaningful, not every Captain America need to pull in all the cast of the Avengers.

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    So, in that last shot, was the various airplanes flying in formation with Godzilla? Not that Godzilla could fly or anything, but if Godzilla was a Macross, and those planes are flying around. You know what I mean. Were they like on the same side going into a fight with the real King, Gidorah... and hence the images of those planes getting trashed by the King...

    DC Aquaman

    Hopefully it'll be an empowering movie just like WW. Don't ask me who it should be empowering, if I had to guess, I would say fish. But only to the extent that they should strive to be tastier on the dinner plates.

    Even MORE remake madness.......

    Only if they bring back Sarah Michelle and then brutally kill her off mid season in a non-resurrectable way to help permanently establish the main character

    Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 3

    I like the idea of Taika taking over GoG3. He did a fantastic job with the last Thor movie. A little new blood would be refreshing. Too bad about Gunn, he did make a pretty good pair of movies, after all, GoG was never really as popular in Marvel comics as the other brand names like X-men or Spiderman. His movies were certainly better than the Iron Mans and the first two Thor movies.

    Yamato 2202

    Why would they want to when they can basically spam warships. I think I can demoralize an enemy enough by just suddenly showing up with bucket loads of warships. Just have the right copy machine and its easy. Although they haven't said as much, those guys probably 3D printed all of the DNs

    Yamato 2202

    I would guess the destruction of Saturn doesn't mean much to the solar system. I mean, literally the mass of Saturn didn't disappear, it's still there, just scattered. However, the addition of Gatlantis to the system could be a big problem, because it's like literally adding another Neptune size planet, it'll screw some things up for sure. But since this is Yamato, we'll just handwave this stuff away. Although it'll be really cool if they didn't.

    Yamato 2202

    True, but the original didn't make the WMG such a big deal. It's 2199 that made WMG such a big deal. The injunction by Starsha, the endless complaining about Kodai on whether it's ok to use the WMG, I mean it was literally the first half. Then, practical reality threw out the rationale for not using the WMG. I personally think Weapons of Mass Gratification (WMG) should be used as often as possible. But oh well. I am more interested in the first two episodes, seem to be lot of Desslar developments there. Will see if the sub makes this any more interesting

    Yamato 2202

    Hmmm, the raw is out, and I have to say, Syndrom was right: "When everyone's super, no one will be." Remember when the WMG was a big deal? Remember when a ship was sunk, it was a big deal? (Ok, I don't remember that either with all the fodder we've seen), but the cookie cutters really went to overdrive in ep 17 and 18. Sigh... I'm just hoping the subs will make this more interesting.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Ok, that looked like Firefox repainted from the front. Do you have to think Russian to fly it? Their power point looked entertaining, although I like the idea that they built this thing with FAST packs in mind. Still waiting for overwing mounted FAST packs, guys. That's the only thing about the power point which might get me excited.

    Black Widow

    They can't afford to cheap out. ScarJo is expensive, think she raked in $20M for age of Ultron, probably just as much for the Infinity Wars, and more. They might be able to get cheaper enemies, fill in with Renner, and such, still not cheap, but not nearly as expensive. Jackson might be a no show because he is just too expensive even for a cameo.

    Then we can get Hawkeye again... alrrrrrrrrrrrrrrright. Just what the world needs, more Hawkeye.
