Current TV Shows / Castle Rock (Hulu)

Anyone checking it out? I’m hearing chatter online that the guy found in Shawshank might be the Devil or a powerful demon. As such, I’m interested in checking this out.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Teen Titans Go to the Movies

Pretty good movie. Not rip-roaring funny throughout, but it has its moments. More story-oriented than the TV show, and it’s practically a musical.

The time travel portion is probably the comedic highlight of the film.

General Chat / Family vacation part 50: here we go again
« on: June 17, 2018, 10:08:50 PM »
Another year, another joint family vacation with the brother-in-law. Day 1 goodness:

1) Leaves 2-year old alone with 3-foot long metal fork to roast marshmallows in an open-flame fire pit (family s’mores night at resort). Sister-in-law yells at him for this (an elderly stranger spotted my nephew alone and came to take control of the situation before she got there). Brother-in-law felt that his 2-year old was fine.

2) Sis-in-law has to get her 5-year old back to a safe depth in ocean, as he was neck deep. Brother-in-law was in charge and felt ok because his kids can “swim pretty well”. They cannot actually swim without floaties/lifevests. No floatation devices were in use at the moment.

Music, Movies, Tv and Books / Incredible 2

7/10 compared to the first movie being a 9/10.

Has some really cool scenes, and the Screenslaver was a decent villain. Just doesn’t flow as smoothly as the first, and the ending is not as satisfying.

ICT / IW Thor vs Hela

Thor with Stormbreaker takes on Hela. Different outcome?

ICT / Iron Man from IW vs Cap and Winter Soldier
« on: May 08, 2018, 12:04:10 PM »
Let’s replay the scenario from the end of Civil War, except Tony has his nanotechnology suit.

Does Bucky get killed? Or can Cap still pull an upset?

ICT / MCU Thor vs Ego
« on: May 03, 2018, 03:20:34 PM »
Spoilers for Inifinity War may be present. Just go see the damn movie.

Anyway, Thor (as seen at the end of Infinity War) fights Ego.

1) He doesn’t know about Ego’s weakness at first, but he might find out during the fight due to Ego blabbing. Or he might just intuitive think to dig into the core of the planet.

2) Thor knows about the weakness to start the fight.

ICT / Thanos vs MCU gods (spoilers)
« on: April 29, 2018, 08:39:35 PM »
So let’s say that Ego, Odin, Hela, Dormammu, and Sutur (amped by the flames) all survived and decided to confront Thanos on Titan to prevent him returning to Earth. Thanos is just missing the Mind Stone. Can the assembled gods defeat him?

ICT / MCU Battle: Thor vs Dr. Strange
« on: April 28, 2018, 09:15:16 PM »

Thor has Stormbreaker. Strange has the Time Stone. Who wins a fight to the death?

Current TV Shows / A.P. Bio
« on: April 20, 2018, 06:37:21 AM »
Genuinely funny show. Love the kids and most of the supporting cast. The main character is a slightly more competent and smarter version of Dennis from Always Sunny, but it works very well in this setting.

ICT / MCU Cap vs [spoilers for Jessica Jones]
« on: April 01, 2018, 10:23:03 PM »
Cap vs Jessica’s mom:

1) Arm wrestling.

2) HtH fight with no shield.

ICT / Zorro vs Three Musketeers
« on: March 05, 2018, 07:59:06 PM »
Antonio Banderas Zorro (from end of Mask of Zorro) battles the Three Musketeers from Man in the Iron Mask. Can the young Zorro defeat three retired Musketeers?

ICT / MCU Black Panther in elevator scene
« on: March 01, 2018, 06:36:50 AM »
T’Challa replaces Cap in the Winter Soldier elevator scene surrounded by SHIELD agents. T’Challa is in civilian clothes but has his Panther-herb powers.

Does he succeed? And does he do it more or less easily than Cap?

Game Cage / How about a Star Wars game by Monolith?
« on: February 23, 2018, 09:39:36 AM »
Monolith and the nemesis system used in LOTR... but applied to a Star Wars game. I think this would be incredible if set in the Old Republic days with the player running into bounty hunters, Sith, and all manner of monster aliens.

You could tweak the system for obtaining allies. Maybe using Force mind tricks for hostile enemies (with some being immune) and currency for neutrals like bounty hunters?
