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.

Watched it over the last couple evenings.

It's pretty good. Fucking sad at times though man, people dropping like flies.

Worth watching I'd say.
I am going to download the new season of Hell on Wheels now I think haha I have a taste for the setting again.

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.

  You are part of a team of scientists using time travel to study early humans and hominids, you can have them listen to one song and study their response.

  Probably something like this.

It's slow, builds slowly, and would let the early homonid get accustomed to the new sound. I'm pretty sure bombarding someone that is used to rocks, sticks, and birds chirping as a soundtrack wouldn't really yield any useful information; it would probably just sound like noise to them.

Well if we're going to go all srs bznuss on the thread...

Single instrument, easily identified indivdiual notes and chords are differentiated easily, slow enough pace for notes and chords to register before moving on to each measure, but still a wide range of tones, octaves and speeds.

Could provide some interesting data on how the early hominid brain cued on different volumes and frequencies, and relational data to evolutionary psychology for pattern recognition within sound patterns which could be used to infer an early developmental capability for recognition of vocalization and language development.

Would be interesting to take an early hominid and put them in an FMRI and see how a non-verbal holotype genus brain substructures activate when listening to the music versus natural sounds of, say, prey organism vocalizations. I wonder if a non-verbal hominid uses an analogous area of the brain for musical processing as we homo sapiens use for speech recognition.

Hey don't act like you wouldn't fuck a cave bitch. Its the ultimate fuck. You'd be doing some historical shit. You'd be the first to do anal, the first to do some ass to mouth, the first to tell your women to shave before you go down on her, the first to go down on her, the first to do cow girl, and the first to break some poor bastards heart.

Everything you do you can pass it off on your own, changing the course of human development and knowing that you did it first. In the butt.

Plus considering the average size of ape dingles, even an average dude would feel like a goddamn horse compared to all the inferior cave dongs and would both frighten and arouse the cave woman with your superior shaft of future wang. They would tremble in terror and lust, falling before you like children before Anders Brehvik, unable to resist your mighty meat and your revolutionary come-on lines they never heard before.

You would be a towering inferno, a stiff idol which the women worship without hesitation. A hairless (mostly hairless) god that is superior in every way to the poor beta cave men.

Plus in the modern day you can say truthfully that you fucked everyones great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great greatx50 great grandmother.

that's to be expected when the first one is based on a memoir and then you make stupid sequels based on bullshit screenwriters' ideas who havent ever served or seen combat.

why is this a surprise to anyone?

  The Man in the High Castle - an American dystopian alternative history television series produced by Amazon Studios, Scott Free, Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Productions and Big Light Productions. The series is loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. The story is an alternative history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II. The United States has been partitioned into three parts: The Japanese puppet state of the Pacific States of America, which comprises the former United States west of the Rocky Mountains; a Nazi puppet state that comprises the eastern half of the former United States; and a neutral zone that acts as a buffer between the two areas, called the Rocky Mountain States.

The pilot debuted on January 15, 2015 and was Amazon's "most-watched since the original series development program began." On February 18, 2015, the series was picked up for a ten-episode season, leading to the remaining nine episodes being released on November 20, 2015. A second season of ten episodes has been announced for a 2016 release. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Man_in_the_High_Castle_(TV_series)
