  "Lao Yang and Eddy both work for a company called CREC (Chinese Railway Engineering Company). They have just set up camp near the remote mining town of Kolwezi in the Katanga province of the RDC. The goal of the company is to redo the road - covering 300km - that connects Kolwezi with the capital of the province Lubumbashi. Lao Yang is head of logistics of the group. He is responsible for the equipment, building materials and food (mainly chickens) to arrive in the isolated Chinese prefab camp. The Congolese government was supposed to deliver these things but so far the team hasn't received anything. With Eddy (a Congolese man who speaks Mandarin fluently) as an intermediate, Lao Yang is forced to leave the camp and deal with local Congolese entrepreneurs, because without the construction materials the road works will cease. What follows is an endless, harsh, but absurdly funny roller coaster of negotiations and misunderstandings, as Lao Yan learns about the Congolese way of making deals."

This thread has me looking for a good hewing axe again. I want to find an old one that's a bit fucked up looking so someone will sell it cheap. Easy to fix up and rehang.

Fuckers like that wranglerstar lad has the ebay prices, and the like, sky fucking high these days.

Nah, I have axes that fit that role well already. Couple of felling axes and a gransfors bruks small forest (a favourite bit of kit).

It's the offset wide blade hewing axe thing I'm looking for, like in the image.

It's a want, a tool for a fairly specialised task, so I'm not going to stress it. Still I would love to hand process at least a few beams or something for a project. Pure satisfying idea to my mind.

  Comedians have to plug their comedy shows by going on local morning shows and they are always terrible to do. They are super early and the hosts always ask the same dumb questions no matter what town you are in.

Well Tom Segura decides to have a little fun with them and comedy magic ensues.

Well because my tablet can’t install the new FunimationNow App I will have to remove my current app. Is there any other apps I can use for a Android based tablet like Funimation that shows every anime in English Dub. I thank you for letting me know this.

I've had a very positive experience with Anime Mobile, a free application produced by (IIRC) animefreak.tv, but their content, at least as served through the mobile application, is overwhelmingly subbed rather than dubbed. If you can overlook that, give it a shot. Bonus: it allows you to download episodes to your device, and keeps them sorted by series in an organic library.

I just saw it. I went into it expecting a terrible movie with a good Batman.

I got a decent movie with an amazing Batman (I actually like Ben Affleck more than Michael Keenan).

The story was stupid as shit, though, but I'm going to withhold bitching about that until the 4 hour director cut is released. It might tie everything together. I'm hoping for a situation like the Total Recall remake, where the theatrical version sucked and the directors cut kicks ass.

I mean, a lot of the elements were there, I loved how it began showing a mere mortal's perspective of the Man of Steel fight scene, which would be terrifying. The atmosphere was probably the best thing about the movie, except for Batman pretty much killing everyone he came across. Well, not outright killing, more like killing through influencing the environment. I love that side of Batman.

One thing that deserves its own standalone movie was the scene where Bruce was dreaming about being Batman in a post apocalyptic world. That was amazing and there needs to be a post apocalyptic Batman movie with Ben Affleck.

The worst offense this movie has going for it is casting Jesse Eisenberg for Lex Luthor. Which baffles me, since casting is usually one of the few things Zack Snyder is really good at.

Also, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor was one of stupidest decisions ever made.

Should have gotten Sharlto Copley. Every role can be improved with Sharlto Copley.

I'll admit I was iffy about Affleck just from his turn as Durrdevil which other then Jennifer Garner's tits and Micheal Clark Duncan and Colin Ferrel hamming it up was a really shitty movie. Its actually kinda funny in retrospect that the movie had two people who would go on to make comic book gold, Batfleck of course and Jon Faveru who would direct the 1st Iron Man movie that started the MCU, while Daredevil would be remade into a fantastic tv series.

I'm glad he proved Daredevil wasn't his audition for Batman and actually plays a damn good Batman. I wouldn't say he is the best Batman, Keaton is the best live action and Kevin Conroy is perfect voicing Batman in the animated shows and games. That might change once he gets his own movie to shine though.

I think they should have just used Micheal Rosenbaum from Smallville. The show itself was kinda meh but Rosenbaum made a fucking excellent Lex.

Copley I think might make a good Riddler.

Either way, it would help to have Lex act like Lex and not the fucking Joker. With all the stupid little twitches and manic bullshit you could tell Zuckerburg was trying to ape Heath Ledger's Joker.

That was bad for multiple reasons. One, Lex Luthor even Lex Jr ain't the fucking Joker. If they wanted the Joker they should have had Jared Leto mosey on over with his grill and play the twitchy psycho.

Two, Ledger's Joker wasn't even that great. All sure, it was fine I guess but severely overrated. If Ledger hadn't taken a dirt nap he'd be remember as a good Joker but nothing special. He irritated me mostly because of how unrealistic he was despite how people kept calling the Nolan films realistic. Because some guy having any army of people willing to do his bidding including attack cops and sew bombs in their stomachs is realistic. Having access to military grade weapons and explosives and able to plant those explosives everyfucking where is realistic. Able to tie up a body of a guy in broad day light and toss him off the roof of city hall is realistic.

I was going to see Hardcore Henry yesterday, but they took it out of the theater because it wasn't doing so well.

I thought I had time, they were only playing it for a week and a half.

I'm sure it's playing at other theaters around here, but the only reason I have occasional movie days is because my brother gets me in for free.

I guess I'll check it out when it comes out on dvd. Which sucks, I wanted to see the POV action in theater.

I'd be really interested in a Punisher MAX movie if Tom Sizemore were Castle.

Or Jason Isaacs. In case you don't know who that is, he's the British cavalry doucheofficer in Patriot. He was also in Black Hawk Down, Green Zone, and Fury. Soldier with Kurt Russel, and Windtalkers too.

You'll motherfuckers need to go watch Daredevil season 2. Jon Bernthal is a fitting Punisher.

Also do they really need another movie about a guy who lost his family and just goes around killing people? Wouldn't mind if he showed up as a side character, but not enough substance for another standalone imo

The Punisher works best when he is not part of the heroverse, though.

He's the collective pressure valve for readers to hate and take revenge on the criminal, the corrupt and the soulless elements of societies. Reading about Jared Fogle touching kids or ex-cops raping and murdering 19 year olds and then butchering and dumping them alongside the highway in suitcases doesn't make me want to see the Punisher beat up and arrest the Scorpion or goddamn Baron Zemo.

They read it because they want to fucking do something but goddamn America's legal system is so monumentally fucked that vigilanteism makes more sense than putting a fucker on trial. Justice is bargained and double-dealt and redefined and bought and sold. I want to see sick fucks ventilated because I can't do that in real life.

The Punisher is the hate we all feel, and the fist we wish we could throw into the face of the current flawed justice system in America.

Right. The Punisher is a more adult take on Batman. Early on Batman used guns, but it was very early, and at the same time then it was more focused on fantasy, as it had vampires, etc.

Already by 1940 Batman had been "sanitized" and started going away from the grittier pulp/noir styling and was marketed to a younger crowd with Robin, actually pre-dating Batman getting his own comic. Over time we had stuff like Ace the Bat Dog, etc. till it became the over-the-top 1960s Adam West TV show.

In the MAX line, the Punisher, (or at the time just Frank Castle,) is a 'Nam vet (again). At the will of writer Ennis, Frank's old; he's been active for 30 years as the Punisher, or close to it, and he drops the goofy super-hero uniform, but (possibly) gains (almost) superpowers. In the MAX origin comic, Frank seems to make a deal with some unspecified dark power to survive a botched operation. However immediately he is found near catatonic, being the sole survivor of what seems to be vicious melee combat. So it's definitely left open to reader interpretation.

Punisher was not only an embrace of the vigilantism of the Western-genre resurgence at the time (1974), or sort of an answer to Batman, he was also one of the first true anti-heroes to hit it big. He was embraced by a public that had lived through Watergate, and was largely disgusted with government/authority.

The Punisher was also a bit of a mistake, if you will; he was designed to be a tier-2 supporting role character and his popularity caught Marvel off guard. This helps explain the thin-ness of his character and the sort of archetypal roots and personality early on.

Watched the Punisher episodes with my roommate, who was watching Daredevil. I thought the speech at the end was a little much, but overall very good. Put the Tom Jane and Ray Stevenson movies to shame.
