Unless Absorbing Man is forced to absorb something really shitty, how is this a fight?

B.P.R.D. The Devil You Know #15 brings an end to the comic book Hellboy saga (and universe)? Anyone read it? Thoughts on the ending?

I’m a little confused as to where the humans escaped to, and what happened to Liz.

Looking back and my opinion hasn’t changed from my original impression.

The strength difference between Cap and Hulk in the MCU is vastly smaller than the difference in the comics.

Agreed, but this is due to comic book Hulk completely outclassing his MCU counterpart much more than there being any equivalence between MCU Hulk and MCU Cap.

Debate / Re: Will Trump go down as the worst president ever?

I should clarify that I haven't read the report, I don't have the time. Or the inclination, if I'm being honest, or the ability to understand the legalese. But I value the opinion of the people who post here.

I.e. Is Trump tweeting his displeasure about being investigated being considered obstruction of justice? As a layman, I find that very underwhelming, even if it meets the legal requirement of obstruction, particularly if he wasn't given a formal warning by a judge (not sure what judge that would be.) On the other hand, if Trump straight-up had Mueller fired, I can understand how that would be obstruction.

What are the things being considered as obstruction of justice, in layman's terms? I.e. I get that if Trump had successfully ordered someone with authority to fire Mueller, that would be obstruction. I get that since the person who he ordered to do so refused to do it, Trump dodged a bullet.

Wait until the Rock finds out Elba brought some 18th century British redcoats.

Really embracing the superhero stuff

Looks embarrassingly bad.

Marvel Zombies / Re: Rank their rogues galleries from best to worst

Fin Fang Foom is cool, even if Iron Man had to pull a Kingpin to get him. Ghost and Living Laser aren't bad either.

I like those two a lot as well. Really cool visuals.

Ghost was also a breakout character in the most recent Thinderbolts, IMHO.

“Tyrion said balls! [snicker] This show is so naughty!”

“LOL Jon asked Arya if she’s used Needle, he doesn’t even realize how uber she is!”

“Damn right you have to earn a queen! Cersei is so fierce! You go, girl!”

What I imagine people who enjoyed the premier were thinking.

BTW Arya’s flat affect since she got back to Westeros is annoying as hell.

You guys are really sleeping on Whiplash, Blozzard I, and Blizzard II.

The prequels had phenomenal worldbuilding and some good acting (Ian McDiarmid chief among those, obviously). Lucas is a great idea man and overall director, he's absolutely terrible with dialogue, regardless of trilogy.

What made me rewatch them (the second and third ones, not the first) was initially watching clips of McDiarmid on YouTube. He was so good as the Emperor. He stole every scene he was in.

I remember disliking the prequels when they came out but enjoying them more when I rewatched them last year. I think the first time around I was expecting movies similar to the original trilogy. The prequels are very different in mood and atmosphere. They are operatic, and as subtle as a punch to the face, and the acting is very over the top, but once you get over that there’s quite a bit to enjoy. More importantly, they stand or fall on their own. They don’t rely on nostalgia for the first trilogy. They are epic in scope, which makes the over the top acting seem appropriate. The visuals are awesome, you can tell a lot of thought went into even the small details, like a transport ship that only appears once.
