    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.

    New Macross TV Series in 2018

    What? you guys don't like Luke drinking purple titty milk? How xenophobic.... Yeah, I do have to agree though, outside of Reylo fighting the guards, the movie pretty much sucked. Still glad Disney made a bunch of money though, because it's not like you can get it back. Imagine if movies were based on payment for satisfaction, Hollywood would've died long ago... or came out with some really good stuff.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    can the MV-22 fit into a C-5? I assume there is probably an amphibious assault ship or a base somewhere in Europe with Osprey in place. By the way, you guys did just have the 100 anniversary of the RAF, congratulations. I was over on your side of the pond as well this week, in France actually, and I commented to one of my British colleagues about whether they should've considered borrowing some Junkers, Heinkels, Stukas and Messerschmitts flying alongside the Spitfires to commemorate the finest hours of the RAF. May be have a mock dogfighter over Buckingham palace.

    New Macross TV Series in 2018

    Up to ep 13, Delta was quite watchable even tho there was still not enough mech action. Although if you've liked Frontier, Delta is a bit of a let down. Would suggest that you watch the first half unaided or with only moderate consumption. Then before starting episode 14, it would be a nice time to have a break anyhow, get into the good stuff, start with some nice wines, then go for the hard liquors. get a few bottles, so it'll last through the remaining 5 hours or so. Try a mixture of tequila, whiskey, vodka, old Bailey, etc. Have a drink every time there is a scissor on the show (you'll know what I'm talking about after the first few episode) or if the combat action is indistinct because of the explosions followed by the points of purple and green lights representing the fighters. Definitely have a drink whenever the full Zentradi who is reminiscent of Picolo from DBZis on screen. Then at the end of Delta, you would have had a fine experience, and you'll remember fondly Macross Delta.

    Christopher Robin

    This looks fun... nothing is impossible, and nothing is what I do everyday
  14. No I'm not, I am thinking that Sideshow Bob need to reduce costs, and he is already paying RDJ, CE, CH, and MR too much, actually he should toss in SJ in there too along with SJ so that the costs keep going down. Then, the only guy who costs so much would be BC and CP. The rest can be new up and comers who the House of the Mouse can pay much smaller wages.
  15. I personally hope they are willing to do a pay off at the end of avengers four, and kill Tony, Cap, and may be Thor and Hulk. A nice way to tie off the first three phases of MCU. They have more than enough materials to go on moving ahead, and it's time for Spiderman to grow up, there is no more need for daddy figure, and Cap need to take a permanent breather (too many language problems).
  16. honestly, without net neutrality, Sideshow Bob will just start making deals to get access to pipes. Besides, if Comcast truly does that to Disney, you can bet the Justics.e Department will come right in.. You can throttle the little guys, it's much harder to throttle the big guy without getting a bunch of lawyers in your face.
  17. Wait, if that's the case, why are you cheering on Comcast. You can ignore Sideshow Bob and his wares. But if you're in certain parts of the country, you really can't ignore Comcast unless you cut the land line cord, and tether everything off of the phone.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    Not anything that fancy, remember some of the AMRAAMs on the F-22 have ejector racks or something like that, right? So why not add a top layer on the F-15, thickness wouldn't be more than 30 inches, have ejector racks that can push the AMRAAM up and away before launching. Two large pods resting on the of the jet intakes and extended back to where the tail is. Then add in some ejector rack so that those pods can be jettisoned to either side in an emergency.... ok, sorry, too much Macross and too little reality. Next I'll probably want armor along the wing root structure.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I'll be more impressed when they slap a fast pack on the F-15s, ala VF-1; may be put equivalent weapon pods like the CFT style takes they have for F-16 and F-18. Those could add at least another four missiles. The topside of the F-15 is incredibly underutilized. I figure as a missile truck, you don't need as good a rearward visibility.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    What a waste, the centerline has nothing on it, can't they slap on a pod with four more AMRAAMs? 12 AMMRAAMs seem to be not nearly enough for an itano circus. But I suppose, they could have a fuel tank there and make the idea of a linked missile truck to an F-35 a reality. Wait, is that a tailhook on the F-15? Didn't know the 15s had one.

    Cobra Kai

    agreed, it seems that even old fuddie duddies can be entertaining. Oh wait, F***, I'm one of them. GODDA***IT.
  22. Cue Dr. Evil laugh, I bid $100 Million, oh wait, $100 Billion. I am sure old man Murdoch is smiling ear to ear, or at least his kids must be.
  23. Bob Iger, CEO of Disney. I just like to call him Sideshow Bob because he isn't Walt. But it's all tongue and cheek fun, anyone who knows how Iger has operated knows that the man has done a fantastic job at Disney. Yes, raising prices at the park is not good for consumers, but would you rather have 10,000 more people a day crowding in Disney? ESPN and ABC are kind of on the downside these days even though they still bring in a good share of the revenue. But that one is a trend problem, one that Sideshow Bob is tackling by moving his distribution online like Netflix. The man has greased the wheels for Disney for the next decade, I feel sorry for whoever has to replace him. It'll not be quite as bad as coming in after Walt or Steve Jobs, but whoever it is has to think about how to advance the Disney empire to the next level, and it's a tall order. I would agree that I'd rather pick Disney than Comcast because the latter has a much more horrible impact on our lives than Disney. You can always choose to go without Disney, going without Comcast can be a lot harder depending on which part of the country you live in.
