Why did you capitalize blacks?

Boromir: (pensively) What new devilry is this?

Gandalf: (eyes tightly shut and trembling) ... (opens his eyes and says grimly) A bah-lack guy.

Only thing too spoilerish for me was Stark on the boat safe. Really cuts the tension now when I see the film.


Sounds interesting, even if I am pensive. But hey... this is the next cycle. Shit will be different.

Best part? No origin story flick!!! I'm sure there will be a flashback to Uncle Ben at some point, but no rehash of the very very well known origin story of Spidey.

Her singing was fine... just fine though. I guess when Disney ran the actress spectrum of "hot/can't sing" to "singer/not hot", Emma Watson fell somewhere right in the safe middle zone.

Yeah, I also like how Stark is hitting Peter with advice that he had to discover back in Iron Man 3. The advice rings true on its own, but it's bolstered if you know the backstory.

Anyway, his friend is 100% gonna die. Maybe even 110%.

Meanwhile in New York City, a test to measure the basic literacy of teachers is being dropped because they dunt score too bigly.


On one side, they eliminated this as being one of four other rigorous paid tests teachers needed to get certified AFTER getting a college bachelors degree. I can see the reason for eliminating a superfluous test.

But they chose this one specifically because they didn't like the the outcomes based on skin color. I think the better route to take: examine the test to see which areas were causing the rift in results. Eliminate any cultural biases in the test. But if you find that none exist, then the problem is in the candidates... not the test.

Oh well, looks like I'm done. The ranking system is even fucked up. Lost one match that went on for 15 minutes, and my rank went down 25 points. Won the next two matches... 1 point and 10 points. Baffling.

Later won a match where the monster player froze up for an easy slaughter. 15 points.

I hope someone makes a better FPS team monster hunter. Hunting down giant monsters on a team is cool... so much that I put up with a few days of this crap game.

I'd say Obi for sure.

Force TK is what really wins it for this Uber version of Mace. Mace wins 8.5/10 unless Jack's sword can somehow block Force attacks.

Never say never. Jack has done some outrageous shit.

Downloaded this as well. Havent played it yet but i thought they did a massive patch to counter some of the issues your talking about. Makes me wonder how bad it was before

I heard online that the PC version got a major update before the developers abandoned the game. Consoles still have the original/legacy version.

I have a real hard time just finding a game, which sad as fuck for a FREE multiplayer ultimate game version only two years old. Sometimes it crashes during matchmaking, so that is part of the problem. But I think people just give up on this after a few tries because of poor balance.

After MoS and Batman versus Superman, there is literally nothing they could put in this trailer that would get me excited. I have to wait to hear what the reviews from critics and fans are after the film is released.

Yea I'm pretty surprised people think this looks good or amazing. Did anyone actually get the trailer tingles watching this? I find it pretty weak, for a trailer. Very fast cuts with little of  anything. And are they going black and white for the flick? Wtf.

On the flip so the DC guys don't go hog, I also found the guardians trailer to be pretty bad but for other reasons. Just so many bad fucking jokes. Like they're Milking those jokes hard.  And they're making drax more over the top moronic and clownish which I feel is the wrong direction, big time.

Hopefully theyre decent flicks but fucking christ

My hope is that 95% of Drax's humor is in the trailer. Because I like him for the occasional quip or as the straightman. Not to be the awkward goof all movie.

Neo's post about the trailer being a lot of bonus footage (like Rogue One) gives me faith. For example, I heard that Baby Groot hooking up the stereo speakers was purely for the trailer.

Without belt he has a bit of a tough time.

Well, sure, it isn't easy if your pants keep falling down.
