Re: I'm not enjoying Lost Light

I don't care. I don't believe it's intentional that he made Tailgate such a terrible character, and if he did, he did too good a job because quite frankly I was tempted to cheer Fangry on. In fact, I only probably didn't because Fangry murdered a guy to do it. Between Brainstorm and Nightbeat tellin...

Re: I like comics, How 'bout you?

All the Spock chat above has reminded me to recommend to everyone the comic Superior Foes of Spider-Man. It's really great. It's my favourite book after MTMTE, for some similar reasons, comedy, ensemble cast, engaging art. I can understand it being a hard sell, but I will try and pimp it a bit. It's...

Re: This thing...

This was a very interesting thread and actually the kind of thing I was hoping to read when I thought to pop by here after just seeing Windblade's cover image in the solicits. I didn't know about the writer kerfuffle, so cheers for all of that. My thoughts about the new female gender character being...

The tone was all over the place in Superior, I came away not sure what the writer wanted me to to think. The opening action sequence is just annoyingly grimey and trying to be badass. Then there's the whole 'people are bad and stupid' section with the Horizon cast. Max is manipulated and bought off,...

Top movie, straight-up honest action film with good grasp on what it needed to be. I wonder what it's going to look like on DVD, I don't have one of them that 3D tellies and this is the first 3D movie I want to own at home.

I guess it's horses for courses but I honestly think the story would be better received if the art was more moody in layout, akin to a crime comic say, than like the trad superhero stuff we've been getting. I don't mean to dump on the artists with that, I wish it's something all sides of the creativ...

Not any of mine and not most if the ones I have read. Apologies if you feel I am creating a criticism to rail against, but I don't think I am. I think my word choice was uninformative. By poor visual storytelling I meant things like the splash of Prowl posing whilst festooned in guns, and the appar...

Prowl's up to something, guys. He and Starscream are mirroring each other, Starscream's just done an info-dump of his actions/plan over the course of the series, which has all been fairly obvious and in the open for a Decepticon, because of course he's the 'good' bad guy. Prowl is the 'bad' good guy...

Don't pay the wine if you can argue that their communication was misleading, and/or suggest that you will indeed bring your own bottles and ask if they can provide glasses (pay a small charge for that), then go along the wholesalers and get some cheap plonk.

For me, it's not so much that it's been done before - what hasn't, really - nor that we were able to work it out that it was a possibility - we're not idiots, it's a serial medium with thinking time inbetween installments - it was the way it was written. Such a slow, creeping build of wrongness, the...
