@kylepinion Gotta get em all. Then when they do a remastered rerelease at a larger size in 2025, get those too. @kylepinion Yes, although he had some pretty good fill-in guys! But I am glad to see you pulling a Callahan yet again.

@tinyhandprez Old people liked it. If the Academy Awards nominated it, that's what that means. @kylepinion Get all the EC books! Except all the recolored ones. You can pretend those don't exist. @Grendal1969 Agreed! Both heavily Star Wars inspired but with a twist. Strong characters and great visuals. Licensed but not lifeless. @MatthewElmslie The ending is fine.

@deathchrist2000 @newjasonhorn It’s Lost. The others aren’t even in the running. @BenjaminBirdie You gonna say that to his face? @factualopinion Get used to that. Time is the new MoviePass.
@TomKingTK What about a crossover that ties the promise of all those ads together? What’s the secret behind the TRUE history of the DCU? @Kevin_Church I never understood the complaints about participation trophies but if that's how they are distributed, now I get it. @ianmacewan @andykhouri I remember a time as a teenager when some younger kid asked me “do you remember Star Wars?”… @d5tar_ @andykhouri @NickDerington Stagecoach maybe?

@kylepinion Corum is a big yes! @heartimecia What’s a “preoder”? Is that spelling part of the joke? @JAMALIGLE Why would he ever be inside the armor, hard light or metal? Because it’s cooler that way. Same with metal vs light. @thisismrking Yes. It’s that one.We watched Old Guard last night and my kids were waiting for All-Star by Smash Mouth as a music cue.

Or, rather, some of us watched all 4. Others did...not. '80s called and wanted to let you know that today's the 40th anniversary of the New Teen Titans 💥

Justice League > Wonder Woman (the movie). #releasethesnydercutohyouarekcoolI am watching Justice League with @tinyhandprez though. She will likely have hot takes that will never be published.I am doing it, and by doing it I mean watching Justice League again. Is this the Snyder Cut??? JK don’t @ me.

I feel robbed.I admire the audacity of casting David Thewlis as a supervillain. #wonderwoman @ubi905 Haha all I remember about the finale is that there is so much CGI. @revsully Oh I’ve seen it before, but after watching the bonkers Batman V Superman, this Wonder Woman movie seems so slow and dull.It’s a good scene, though. Wonder Woman scaring the entire German army into retreating.The first Wonder Woman scene is 75 minutes into the movie. It’s been a long wait.
