    I like how the plots get progressively more insane.

    Every time I see clips of the 90's spidey I cringe. I think it has to be that he never really felt like Spider-Man in the show in terms of look or movement. And I can't remember the Silver Surfer cartoon at all.

    Thor made $66 million in the US, above Hulk but well below Iron Man 1, even with 3D pricing.

    I guess that would be the bar to set Green Lantern at, Captain America a little higher (like 80 million) just because he's more recognizable.

    they were projecting a $60 million opening weekend, so Thor pretty much performed to expectations

    i saw it again yesterday and liked it even more

    i didn't catch it the first time, but i laughed out loud when Thor called Agent Coulson "son of Cole"

    Man that show was such a cluster fuck at the end of it all. The whole portal thing just got out of control.

    I understand in terms of looks but how movement?

    As much as a loved Spectacular Spider-Man I think you guys are being a bit too hard on this show. It introduced a lot of 90's children to the character, that much you can give it. And Hank Azaria as Venom is just badass (though I couldn't help but imagine Duff Man saying some of Brock's lines :lol:)

    Spider-man Unlimited recently got added to Netflix, and oh my god...

    After a few minutes in, I had no idea what was going on. Oh, and the whole thing had this McFarlane wanna-be vibe to it.

    I have great memories of the Spider-Man and X-Men animations but unlike Batman Animated I avoid watching them today because I don't want to ruin the magic much.

    Thor was good and it did pretty well considering it's a new movie franchise with a main star I can't even remember the name of. Now if Karnilla and Balder appear in the sequel it'll be cool.

    In the 90's Spider-Man was drawn by McFarlane, Larsen, and Bagley, who all made him much more acrobatic and "spider-like" in the way he would webswing, hang on walls, jump around, etc. It was a strong difference from the Romita house style Spider-Man was in in the 60's and 70's. The cartoon never really got across the acrobatics of spider-man, it just looked like a bulky guy climbing the walls or doing his usual web swing across that ugly 3D cityscape.

    The action on the show was pretty tame. Punisher used guns that shot nets, and Carnage had knives for hands but never cut anyone.

    Yeah, I love how he would make this massive spike out of his arm then just bitch slap someone with the broad side of it. That's totally what sharp things are for.

    But for me, 90's spider-man is all about getting to see any comic anything cos I grew up in a hick-ass, comic-less town.

    and why the hell did they not let spiderman throw a punch? were they afraid kids were going to learn how to punch from him?

    It's cool if they want to swing from buildings and wrap people in things, just no punching. We have to draw the line for the children somewhere.

    The x-men was better for that. Wolverine got mangled a bunch by Sabertooth, and got to use his claws on all sorts of robots.

    Same thing happened in the TMNT cartoon, they really only got to use their weapons on robots.

    This was one of the things that bothered me about Samurai Jack: every single thing he cut - no mater how organic it looked - turned out to be robotic on the inside. I mean, I understand why, but it was still annoying.

    As for "Thor", I enjoyed it, but I thought that it was really rushed. I think they should have either cut content, or made the movie at least half an hour longer. All the Earth scenes, especially, moved at a really high pace.

    I kept trying to figure out what was what in the Asgardian armory, but wasn't able to really make anything out. What did everyone see in there? Also, I remember people saying that there are cameos at the banquet scene at the end, but I completely forgot to look around the table when I was watching the movie. Whom did people see there?

    not sure as to what the exact artifacts were, but i'm pretty sure one of them was the
    Eye of Agamotto. also, when the Destroyer is killing the Frost Giants, you can see the Infinity Gauntlet for a split second

    as for the feast at the end, Walt Simonson, Louise Simonson, and (editor) Ralph Macchio show up, though really only Walt is identifiable

    I haven't read much stuff with Wolverine in it except for around the late 80s/early 90s so it may be different now but he never really used his claws in killin a heck of a lot even in the comics.

    I remember in the 90s x-men when wolverine got scratched by sabertooth, and they made a big deal on how not even Wolverine could walk away from that and he was all bandaged for a whole episode.

    I think Matrias meant that Wolverine's healing factor is hella powerful these days, compared to the early 90's or when it took months to grow back an eye that got ripped out.

    There was no other way to have a Samurai cartoon on Cartoon Network with that much violence. I did find it hilarious, though, that they got really gory with the robot stuff, substituting oil for blood and having Jack cut things in half with oil spurting out.

    I realize that. They did what they had to. And, hey, I absolutely loved the show; it just got a little monotonous after a while. Also, I got the impression that the only non-robotics in the world were Jack and Aku.

    Thank god about "Fringe", but they're cancelling "Breaking In" already? It's like 5 episodes in and I'm really enjoying it for a mindless comedy. It was doing okay in the ratings too, they shoulda given it a season at least.

    I was looking forward to Locke & Key instead of buying the comics, like with Game of Thrones, but now I guess I have to give the books a look.

    Lots of changes to the Spider-Man musical. Less Arachne, more Goblin and MJ, basically more of a Spider-Man story it seems, which should help. And Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa helped with the script, a broadway guy who did write a good Spidey before OMD.
