    There’s some problem with this given we have long lived species for whom 20 years would be a year or so at most… but really, a smart story could still make that kind of work.

    TFA was originally...
  2. I think that’s fundamentally, even an idealized...

    I think that’s fundamentally, even an idealized and consistently executed ST would still have one weakness against the PT - the era as its own separate asset, which is more what this thread is about...

    The ST era was already a bit shakey after TFA, though it *could* have been carefully finessed into a different and fun era. After TLJ made sure to bury the new heroes, deny and advertise an even-more...

    I’ve been thinking over some of the coldness this film got from mainstream audiences and some of its direction and story decisions.

    It occurs to me that there was one major change to the story...

    Adam Driver’s Kylo aren’t rots into The Last Duel… and without the Force, and even with decent fighting skills, he gets killed before he has time to assault Marguerite because no one likes him, he’s...

    Reviewing Bellichek’s assistants trying their hands at being head coaches and crashing and burning, the most likely answer is that most of them try too hard to do everything he does and keep his old...

    Here was the idea I had for an evil Batman who could appear in an Injustice game, and going somewhat in the opposite direction of most Dark Universe versions, replacing their more ostentatious evil...

    With Houston, you can tell that much of the dysfunction is deep rooted in the front office and beyond; it make its dysfunction seem worse in some ways than regular dysfunction.

    Zero emotional connection is better than “This character should be reduced to the abused arm candy of my favorite monster.”

    I can respect people who don’t care about the ST characters.

    I don’t...

    “Toxic” ships aren’t the product of a bad combination of characters.

    They’re the product of writing that becomes sociopathically apathetic towards one character; it’s toxic because one must hold...

    Feige’s maybe the best at adapting material into a multi-film franchise.

    Lucas is the best at building a monster of a franchise across multiple media from the ground up.

    Writers keep on seeming to miss how much Tim’s general formula for a successful book depended on some civilian scenes, or how much same sex romantic interests don’t really change a character if there...

    Yeah, there’s plenty of room - as I said earlier, the logistics of getting the right talent is the hard part… but the Bat Books have had that before.

    Chuck Dixon used to be basically the...

    I think part of the reason I’m cold on this design for Riddler, rather than being against it for another supervillain, is that the Zodiac killer was very much actually (and horrifically) trying to be...

    Studio “interference” can only be good or bad, while the third, more likely option for what they do is “nothing” in a practical sense, which is a different, more passive problem. At the same time,...

    Ben Solo has been a cancerously dull, unoriginal, and disappointing failure of an appealing character concept and actor choice ever since Rian Johnson wrote TLJ’s script. And his toxic fanbase just...

    I *love* Penguin’s look here, and I like the design of Riddlers’ outfit. It just still feels a little on the nose as “We want Riddler to be The Zodiac Killer because we have zero confidence in any of...

    Okay, now, that I would agree with.

    It’s arguably that Tim should be linked with Barry in terms of showing how little actual helpfulness/very real harm could be done to a character Didio even...

    That was never the case during the Post-Crisis years when they first expanded them, nor was it the case when Inc. kicked off a new Renaissance for the properties. Nor did it stop Green Lantern from...

    I’d still disagree, though I should clarify my opinion a bit:

    Didio’s support for Tim was in a “shape” and style that was still harmful to him even as an asset Didio wanted to use, while Tim’s...

    That growth was ultimately the biggest asset his time as Red Robin pre-New 52 had going for it… and let’s face it, that book under Fabian Niceiza and Chris Yost *was* Tim using his networking skills...

    One possibility tied into Fett’s title of “Daimyo;” the feudal connotations, and his repeated insistence on the idea of ruling through “respect” instead of fear, could end up heading towards a more...
