    I saw two movies from the pre-code era starring Canada's own Norma Shearer--THE DIVORCEE (1930) and A FREE SOUL (1931). Even though Shearer plays a free spirit in both, ultimately she gets married...

    I watched BIRTH OF A NATION in film studies--at least the first part, I think I only saw clips from the second part which is about celebrating the K.K.K. It might be a horrible movie, but it's...

    Honestly, it was Zatanna's search for her father. Not that I read it as the issues came out. The first issue of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA that I ever bought was 52 and Zatanna's search concluded in...

    You're putting the blame on continuity, when really the source of your frustration comes from the writer, editor or publisher. Continuity is just the tool that is used to tell the story. If a novel...

    Continuity is a way to indicate there's some point to the comic book you're reading, beyond the story at hand, and there's a reason for you to come back next month, because it will all make sense...

    It's a comic book, so nothing has to make sense, but to make sense of how Kryptonians could observe Earth or any planets beyond their solar system, you have to bring in a lot of fantasy ideas.

    Thanks for the suuggestions. Some good ideas for me to think about.



    I've studied several languages, but I'm better at reading than hearing, so on the youtube videos I turn on the captions. And...
  8. Poll: Ha! I got it wrong. I swear I read about him in...

    Ha! I got it wrong. I swear I read about him in the letter columns back in the day and thought he was a teen. But I guess I had it wrong all these years. It made some sense to me that his art wasn't...

    Given the etymology of "man" (from Proto-Indo-European "man-" meaning human being) that is the gender neutral word. But I know the court of public opinion has ruled that doesn't matter and I'm never...
  10. Poll: When Carmine Infantino got kicked upstairs in...

    When Carmine Infantino got kicked upstairs in 1968, Irv Novick's Batman was very much in Infantino's style. He changed his Batman later on, when the Neal Adams version was the model. But I really...

    For me, they had the obvious solution all along right in front of them. Barry--the Flash in the 31st century/Wally--the Flash in the 21st century.

    Barry settles down with Iris in her home time of...

    This is just a selection of ten episodes. I could list another ten and they'd be just as essential viewing. This is one of my favourite T.V. series of all time.

    ▪ "The Cage"--I say "The Cage"...

    If I could, I'd like to recolour Wally's outfit with the yellow, like his Kid Flash suit (my favourite). It would be so easy to do with that design.
  14. Poll: Other than the odd job here and there, I think...

    Other than the odd job here and there, I think Infantino left comics (or they left him) before his skills declined that much. If the art in the 1980s is weird, I see that as more a failure of the...

    Isn't everyone in the U.S.A. ready to sue companies at the drop of a hat? I would think theatres want to avoid lawsuits from customers exposed to the virus--no matter what some governor says.

    My friend in Austria sent me a video on Whatsapp where some German lady goes on an anti-vaccine diatribe--I wasn't listening too close, because I knew where this was going. So my Austrian friend...

    Not on topic, but this image is such a glaring example of what I find wrong with modern comic book panels that I have to call it out. Overly embellished backgrounds and colour effects that distract...

    I was mad at myself, after my last post, as I forgot to mention SUPERBOY. That was like SUPERMAN: THE IN-BETWEEN YEARS.

    With Superman, you've got live action T.V. shows covering just about every phase of his life. You've got SMALLVILLE, THE ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN, LOIS & CLARK: THE NEW ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN,...

    DER GÖTTLICHE ANDERE (2020)--in English it's called DIVINE, although IMDb has it listed as THE BIG OTHER, the actual translation is "The Godly Other"--written and directed by Jan Schomburg, starring...

    From looking at all these lists, my conclusion is that the movies universally disliked tend to be super-hero, fantasy or science fiction. Wow, if they just stopped making those movies, the film world...

    In all the time that the vaccinations have been rolling out, have there been any deaths from the vaccines?

    I can understand a little healthy caution, but I don't see why reasonable people are...

    This touches on something off topic that I'm quite peevish about. I don't like how the origin of Superman has been overembellished. In the straight Jerry Siegel origin, Jor-L and Lora have no time to...

    Personally, I like the design for Kid Flash more than the design for Flash. From the moment I saw it, I just thought it was really cool. But I think you need to have the right hair for that look--the...
