    Default Controversial Opinions (For Everything Other Than DC Comics)

    'Cause the DC Comics one got silly with non-DC stuff, let's have one here, yeah?

    Right then. To start us off...

    Metal is not dead! Metal lives! And not just old bands or old singers, there's good new stuff, too. Sebastian Bach still knocks shit over with his voice, and Huntress is hard as hell tempered in the fury of the devil (cue metal scream yyyeeeaaaaaaaah!). It's still a thing, still strong, just not as popular at the moment.

    And, my other, more general controversial offering is this: It's okeh if people disagree with you. Doesn't make them horrible. Doesn't make you wrong, right, or more right because people disagreeing proves they're idiots and you must be right. Just means you and they disagree.
    Patsy Walker on TV! Patsy Walker in new comics! Patsy Walker in your brain! And Jessica Jones is the new Nancy! (Oh, and read the Comics Cube.)

    Night of the Living Bore! Zombies bore the hell out of me. Zombie books, comics, movies, and shows--ONE COLOSSAL BORE. And folks who are fanatical about/obsessed with zombies are a walking/talking freaking bore too. Ha.

    NOTLD 1 and 2 were really good and that's it. It's kind of amusing abusing zombies in that mall game from Capcom and it was fun giving kicks on the butt of zombies in resident evil online. The rest is garbage.

    t hedge coke is probably expecting this from me:

    Metal is not dead! Metal lives! And not just old bands or old singers, there's good new stuff, too. Sebastian Bach still knocks shit over with his voice, and Huntress is hard as hell tempered in the fury of the devil (cue metal scream yyyeeeaaaaaaaah!).

    2001: A Space Odyssey is a pile of shit.
    If a movie has no interesting characters, a computer planning to kill everyone just like that, 50+ minutes of silence and slow activity, and ending that looks like someone high wrote and built up....

    I mostly like the film, but I'm with you on the ending.

    Even though I probably like classic Metallica more, when it came to writing catchy melodies and hooks, Dave Mustaine was probably a little bit better than Hetfield and Ulrich.

    Has much as I like Carol Danvers, I really don't see this supposed "big push" to make her "Marvel's Wonder Woman" coming from Marvel as a corporation ( movie announcement non-withstanding). I think a lot of that talk is wishful thinking among fans. All Marvel as a company has done is relaunch her series a couple of times and feature her in a couple of Avengers titles, which isn't anything more than they've done for Black Widow and She-Hulk.

    Now sure KSD was pushing the character and there's lots of enthusiastic fans on the interwebs, but Marvel as a company? If they were really pushing her they'd do what they've done for other titles...go on television, press releases to non-comics media etc

    I wouldn't call it a pile of sh!t, but I find it super overrated. It's very nice to look at.. and that's it. It bores me to tears.



    My controversial opinion is, the more I learn about organized religion, the less I want to be part of it.

    I used to be very religious, and I still believe in God and Jesus, but I feel that the vast majority of church leaders just want to take advantage of people. I don't need an stranger to tell me how to live my life. I can think for myself.

    t hedge coke curses:

    See? If those girls drink like Lemmy they still have days of recording time left in their lifespans. Days!


    Su-Metal: "NOOOOOOO! Lemmy have big WART on face!"



    Moametal: "Hee, Su-metal have big black mole on face, too! Just had removed!"

    To remain controversial, Motorhead just never tripped my trigger. Too much "fast=good" and Lemmy sings like he's been gargling with gravel. I was much happier with AC/DC and Judas Priest.

    Kiss are my equivalent of that. A so-called 'classic' band that I just cannot see what all the fuss is about. Another kid in my school that I HATED was a huge Kiss fan and that affected my opinion of them. But even as a 40+ (only just) bloke I just can't get into them.

    I can live without Black Sabbath also. Heavy Metal Heresy!!

    EDIT - Oh, and I always thought that Ratt were a much better band than Motley Crue.

    I didn't mind them back then, but they were never on the same level as the Rolling Stones, the Who, and Led Zeppelin to me 40-something years ago
    A bat! That's it! It's an omen.. I'll shall become a bat!
