    I like his lovably goofy belief in every conspiracy theory going and how most people on the board react to it with the sort of strained indulgence you might give a ten year old who keeps insisting that Santa is a real person.

    wait, really? like what?

    He once made a thread on his board about this really great and totally reasonable and utterly factual documentary he'd just seen about 9/11 and recommended it to everyone on the board. It was Loose Change. Cue much uncomfortable umming and ahhing and 'well, actually Mark' comments.

    His love of professional nutbag and scourge of other-dimensional lizard-people David Icke is also a frequent source of amusement. Cue much 'I'm sure he has some valid points, Mark, but, uh, isn't he actually really really crazy?'.

    Of course, these may be things he has since changed his mind about or are opinions he only actually held casually. But I sort of get the impression that he's a conspiracy wonk.

    ahahaha

    that's great

    I've been reading my Ultimates hardcover recently for some reason.

    The more I read I realize after the edgy modern thing wears off every character is creepy and unlikable.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    I didn't like it that much when I read it originally. I think the main Millar stuff I liked was Civil War and Red Son. Mainly my thoughts while reading Ultimates was, "Who the HELL would pay $100 for jeans?" "Jan Pym is the biggest BITCH I've ever heard of who finds a guy being nice to her to be creepy" "Ultimate Jarvis needs to be shot in the head...Oh wait! Yay!" "Black Widow got implants? *sigh*" Although I was a pretty big fan of Hawkeye in volume one...then when he started using flamethrowers I got said and then I got happy again when he fired his fingernails at people.

    yea, in order to get more than an hour out of it i think you're going to have to stretch it out too much.

    i dont really see how you can make an hour and a half of worthwhile movie out of We3.

    look, three issues is about 90-100 pages of script, if not more and that translates to 90-100 minutes of movie time, which is about the length of a regular-ass movie

    Besides, doesn't Homeward Bound I and II pretty much prove that it's not hard to make a movie about a few animals wandering around lost and getting into hijinks? And that shit didn't even have government intrigue and death-dealing exoskeletons.

    They could easily fill time with flashbacks to their original lives (which might kinda suck) or the project being developed (which might be pretty cool), or perhaps some of their earlier parts of the work; earlier missions, being introduced to one another, etc.

    I wouldn't want them to stray wildly from what we have in order to fill time, but there's plenty they could draw from to fill out a bit of time if they needed to.

    If they can make a movie out of 300 they can make a movie out what by all accounts is a good three-issue series.

    See, this is why I could never make a movie. I would simply license the rights to Homeward Bound and then CGI some mad robot stuff all over the animals.

    I'd keep the voice of Michael J Fox too. Signed, sealed, delivered.

    I like the color of the new Hulk. But that preview makes me worry that it's going to be a lot of Banner, not enough Hulk, like the last one.

    the preview actually made me think there's be a lot more hulk. it looked like we saw a lot of different setups to action sequences, rather than the action itself. which is fine with me.


    i did like that they had the ultimates-style 'kick him out of a chopper and he'll transform automatically' thing at one point

    That Hulk/Abomination fight is taking place on the same block that Harland Williams killed a Diabetic Police Horse by feeding it too much in Half Baked.

    God I hope that scene at the end drops into super-slow-motion so a dove can fly between them. It's the only justification for yet another two-dudes-leaping-at-each-other shot.

    I think the trailer looks pretty bad ass but for some reason the Hulk's head seems too small or something. Anyway I'm looking forward to this.

    I liked the last Hulk movie, so I'm pretty excited for this one, especially since it looks like he'll be tangling with someone his own size.

    Clearly that means I'm better than you :). But you're right Nolan's comments were spot on with what I was hoping they would do for the movie. While Ledger's death was tragic I was really hoping they would not alter any of his performance.

    Not according to the interview in Empire. Abomination doesn't even show until late into the movie apparently.

    That....kind of sucks then, doesn't it?

    Because now all I'm expecting is Bruce Banner trying to get rid of the Hulk, the army creating the Abomination, Bruce using the Hulk to defeat the Abomination, and then Hulk winning and everyone is happy. Does that feel a little too standard to anyone else?

    I wouldn't worry too much about Abomination getting screentime.

    The director has said that there is a 26 minute balls to the wall fight between Abomination and Hulk in the middle of New York towards the end.
