    Again, guys, enough with the name calling (both sides, BTW, have been equally guilty of this). If you don't like something, fine, but leave it at that. Besides, nothing said here is going to change...

    Her pansexuality is something that is mentioned by a few people, but isn't really seen in print or on screen (and most likely never will, except via an obscure hint).

    Having said that, Batwoman...

    I agree on both counts. Having Supergirl accidentally stepping on Lena's foot would be only slightly worse as a catalyst for her going evil than what we are seeing now: "You have betrayed my right...

    I could see it happening if they were being outrageous, but for hand holding? I'm with you, Kirby.

    This storyline only gets worse and worse for me. Wrestlers go from hero to villain much more believably than Lena currently is doing.

    All the women on this show are lovely, but Catherine is still my favorite.

    Sure - Once Upon a Time in America, for one (which is an example of a "failed" film that is not viewed as such today).

    Blade Runner is another "failed" film that got a directors cut a decade...

    I guess it depends on how much it would cost WB to put together, something I have no clue about.

    Hmm... since you have only read The Illustrated Man and (I believe) Fahrenheit 451, here are the other essentials to read:

    The Martian Chronicles - his greatest sci-fi work, IMO.
    Dandelion Wine -...

    As someone in that camp, it's so grating, unnecessary, and devoid of any empathy for the large-enough number who support the films. But most of these type of posts (and the hyper-sensitive ones from...

    Who should write a GA regular? Elliot S! Maggin, of course. Nobody wrote a more fun Ollie than his. :D

    It wasn't directed at you specifically, mwce - in fact, you have been a perfect gentleman. But others here don't know when to stop posting.

    Latest books: The Age of Napoleon (1975) by Will and Ariel Durant, the eleventh and final (yay!) work from their The Story of Civilization series. It took a couple of decades to actually read them...

    Guys, enough with the name calling. Whatever side of the Snyder divide on, respect the other side's opinion or you will be given an involuntary vacation from this site.

    True, but as much as I enjoyed Romero's interpretation as a little kid, I'm so glad the O'Neill-Adams version was around by the time I started reading comics.

    I agree. If they had stuck to just one vision, it would have done significantly better.
  18. Well, the former is a quality film featuring the...

    Well, the former is a quality film featuring the most famous supervillain of them all, while the latter was a Frankenstein-like merger of two disparate visions. I guess I'm not that surprised. :)

    The Clown Prince of Crime is seriously laughing his butt off at his Ha-Hacienda.

    Polarization-wise, the current era resembles the beginning of the American political parties and the Civil War.
  21. Again, the top billionaires today don't compare...

    Again, the top billionaires today don't compare to the richest from the 19th century in real dollars. It's not even close. Now if all those anti-monopoly laws and acts since then weren't in place,...

    Gates and Bezps look like pikers next to their 19th century counterparts. Rockefeller and Carnegie between them had over a half of a trillion dollars when adjusted for inflation.

    True. It wasn't all about corruption, either. One of the big reasons why Rome died was the adoption of Christ in place of the Roman gods, since the early Christians were more concerned about the...
