    Yamato 2202

    OMG, we're now spamming Andromedas... frakk YEAH, who needs DNs when we can spam Andromedas.... I think I counted something like a dozen Andromedas. Which makes sense given how many we saw in the last episode. Gamillas Andromedas, and is that Berger? Wow, so, they weren't kidding when they said Gamilas got provided with Andromeda class carriers. A new color scheme on the Andromeda, which shortly gets another sword through the bridge. Hmm, is it even the same Andromeda? I think that ship is the Andromeda, note the name on the side of the bridge... could be an indication that this is an Andromeda class ship. It is kind of a nerd-gasm, this is starting to feel like Michael Bay Transformers, throw in a bunch of stuff that could be anything, and hope people don't notice. For example, why are there DNs attached to the left side of each Andromedas? They are gluing ships on now? If so, why not the right side? Or may be there is, and we don't see a picture of it. I like my junk piles to be symmetrical please. Oh, wait, I was wrong, there are two DNs glued to each of the Andromeda, making it a super duper Andromeda. Now my sense of symmetry is satisfied. But why DNs, why not glue two Andromedas together, or may be even three of them. I wonder what it means when there are different color scheme Andromedas. In fact, I think those red ones are all Gamilas types.. But it's hard to tell. And seriously, where is Desslar. Not one image of him in this trailer.

    So wait.... Nagini has been around for that long? Oh man, someone call PETA, obviously that snake has been abused.

    Geez, I didn't know there were many C5s left over. Well, except for the ones used to ferry POTUS gears.

    Top Gun 2 is comin

    Exactly, they need to be able to mount at least seven of those pods to make it worth while. Like I said, two over the FAST pack tanks on the Rhinos, may be two more on top of the wings, and two beneath. Then the cernerline pod. Please remember, we're talking Hollywood here, you can never have enough missile pods or missiles, or Mig 28s. And by the way, why is this a Navy fighter without carrying Harpoons or SLAM-ERs. Just utterly unconscionable, next you'll tell me that the air launched Tomahawks are too big to fit into those pods.

    Top Gun 2 is comin

    Is that thing carrying all those pods at once? I guess I can see that, mount two over the wings, two more on the FAST pack, two under the wing, and what the hell, that thing on the centerline could make it seven. Let's see, if we take option one, six pods equals to 24xAMRAAMs. Itano circus anyone? Although that needs to happen before his backseater activates the centerline pods and call for the drones.

    OMG, that was so obvious. You can even have Maverick with quippy lines like "I used to fly those."

    Top Gun 2 is comin

    No I think he shot down 3xF-18s. Maverick's training methods. If you can dodge a sidewinder, you can dodge a ball.... I'm really curious on how they will portray Iceman. I wonder if we can get some real opposition this time, SU-37s, may be Mig 29s. They can be Russian or North Koreans, but not Chinese, because the China movie market is huge...
  8. Or a slob in desperate need of a paycheck that he is willing to sit there for eight hours to get into make up and put on a ridiculous looking set of spandex. There is no reason why that person cannot be a hero. In between the lines, see you later Cavil (never was) and Afflectk (has been), there are hundreds of guys like you we can pull off the street for a new Superman and a new Batman. Hell, may be we can get back Bale bat again.
  9. Oh no, and here I was hoping to have a Superman with a mustache. It would've been so appropriate too. I guess no Darkseid for a while, or may be in this DC universe, they unceremoniously kill Superman and Batman off screen.

    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.

    Yamato 2202

    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.

    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.
  18. 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's 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
