Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I mean, dude was a total cunt, but he was such a good cunt! I liked his relationship with Fisk, and he just really sold the performance. He was a great number two villain.
Good character moment for Karen, though. I didn't see that coming.
Overall, I appreciate the phenomenal work the show did with Matt and Fisk. The latter is probably the best MCU villain to date - sorry, Loki - and Matt is definitely the best superhero in terms of story, arc, and just general embodiment of the character. Evans is a great Cap and is enjoyable as far as that goes, and RDJ makes a great RDJ, but Cox is so goddamn believable as a man struggling with what it means to be a hero, and what that takes, and how precarious is the state of one's soul.
Wesley was well done also, and I liked Claire. All the other characters are fine, and often entertaining, but I hope the next season fleshes them out a little more. This isn't a complaint, really - I'm content having three or four really damned good characters - but there's untapped potential in these other folks.
Also, fun fact: took me eleven episodes to realize "Wesley" was his last name and not his first.
My take on Snyder is that he is good at big ideas and he is good at awesome moments. MoS had a good big idea - what if Superman is kind of an alienated asshole? And it had great moments, or at least great looking moments.
But he didn't know how to bring that shit together. His least controversially good movie is still 300, and that's because the movie was just about a bunch of totally rad looking fight sequences.
I'm surprised Fisk isn't even more fucked up than he already is. Christ.
I thought that was a nice misdirection. I totally thought his dad was going to get whacked by the loan shark, and maybe little Willie was going to get revenge or something. Nope, just a good old fashioned hammering.
Nice job setting up Fisk's violent outbursts.
Also, the reveal about the painting was really poignant. Probably my favorite episode so far.
...when everyone else has the same potential to cause damage or kill. Yeah, that kid killed people in an unpleasant way, but she had to touch them. She had all the same killing potential as if she only had a knife.
I am so sorry for you. It must be terrifying to live in a place where everyone can crack open a mountain from half a mile away just by thinking about it. How do you even sleep at night?
