    are there any AMC theaters in Oregon at all, actually? I don't recall ever seeing a theater that wasn't Regal in this state.

    Not that I know of. Fuck this gay state.

    They gotta make a Spider-Man cycle ala Sonic cause this game is kinda looking good.

    Ripping off Batman AA and AC is the best thing they can do, combat wise.

    I just realized this, but has anyone been watching the DC Nation block? Are any of the little animated shorts worthwhile?

    I caught it the last two weeks. They had a Plastic Man one that was pretty good. Titans too. I think they're going to be hit or miss though.

    EDIT: Plastic man short

    This is why Lauren Faust (executive producer of that and My Little Pony) is the best.

    I don't get Cartoon Network, so I'm not exactly sure what DC Nation is. Is it just a bunch of clips that get played between Young Justice and Green Lantern?

    Also, how is Green Lantern?

    It's okay. Unfortunately it's a step down from the Timm-verse in quality.

    It's okay. Unfortunately it's a step down from the Timm-verse in quality.

    There have only been two episodes so far!

    And it's surprisingly star warsy. Hal is Han Solo, Kilowog is some weird mix of Lando, Obi Wan, and Chewbacca all smashed together, Attrocitus is Vader, the weird planet-ship the Reds have is the Death Star, Aya is Edi from Mass Effect, and... uhh

    I'm sure more parallels will come forward soon. Honestly, I kind of like that they shifted the tone, because it feels much more science fiction-y than the GL books have felt in the last few years. That's a bonus in two ways, because not only do I dig the bigger sci-fi focus, but I also dig the refreshing amount of difference from the books.

    That's no excuse. Young Justice was able to keep that quality from the pilot. It's make the GL cartoon look pathetic.

    Over the past few years the comics have focused on the "space cop" aspect. Hal's supporting cast on Earth hasn't been seen in years, excluding carol since she's Star Sapphire. It makes sense to tap into the franchise's similarities with Star Wars.

    Man, Young justice has been getting better constantly but it is still not close to being that good.

    Young Justice has been excellent IMO. Definitely worthy enough to be the Timm-verse's successor.

    What's wrong with that? It gives Robin another personality quirk. It's better then making him an almost cipher like with the Teen Titans cartoon.

    My problem with YJ is that they really don't even try and get the characters right. Wally was never some weird combo of Impulse and Beast Boy (in personality), even when he was a kid. Dr. Fate comes off as some sort of pseudo-villain d-bag.

    The only characters that come off feeling close to how they should, are Batman and Captain Marvel.

    That said, I still find it pretty enjoyable. The animation and costume designs are fantastic.

    I think with a more human face we'll get a more expressive performance. without a human face, the pathos of the character would probably get lost onscreen.

    I really doubt he is going to be brimming with pathos as is

    he looks super goofy and not intimidating

    him being naked is fine if he is properly bestial since it implies he is just a wild goddamn animal

    but he still has a pretty human face and other features so it just looks really silly and awkward

    The new trailer for Ultimate Spiderman shows Fury giving him a motorcycle that shoots webbing, along with the iron spider suit that behaves more like a regular Iron Man suit than one that augments Spidey's powers.

    I mean, I know this show is not geared to adults or anything, but man, they're not even trying to hide the fact that one of their goal is to sell as many toys as possible.

    I know I'm probably being too negative on the show, but they sort of brought it on themselves by choosing that title. If it was just a new Spider Man cartoon, or hell, call it the New Adventures of Spiderman and his Amazing Friends or something, and it would be an easier pill to swallow.

    In other cartoon news, a trailer for Superman vs. Elite is out;

    http://www.mtv.com/videos/misc/749050/superman-vs-the-elite-trailer.jhtml#id=1681043

    The style is really, really cartoony. Curious if that'll jive with the subject material.
