I have not gotten to see this movie yet so this should be taken with a grain of salt. I was HOPING I would be pleasantly surprised that this might actually end up being a good movie. All signs however seem to point to a cinematic disaster of... well the attached image tells it all. There has been no really positive reviews of this movie. The critics I usually ignore, but no one has come out saying they liked it either among the actual fans. The response has been a lot of meh to "Oh the Humanity!!!"
So, I have been trying to get myself to a con for years now, and I've decided to get myself setup to go to the Dallas Comic-Con this year. It is October 16-18 at the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. I'm looking forward to it, and I'm going to have to save up just to transit there. I probably won't be reserving a hotel there, even if I live on the other side of Tarrent County, but that's mostly cause it will already be booked. I will just have to try and live with it.
I think it should be pointed out that in every iteration of this site I have had but one real rule I TRY to adhere to. Freedom of Speech is absolute. I don't ban folk for disagreeing with me, I don't silence anyone who has something to say against me. I argue, I debate, I speak out, but I never ever silence people.
In this day and age I think it's important to reaffirm that truth.
This is to let you all know that the Bookshelf Group is now open. Bookshelf is my name for the Drupal setup I have here on Fanbards, and will try to turn into something that can be shared with anyone for any type of writer's community. Anyone interested in joining the discussion or ading their support can join me there and keep track of my progress, offer suggestions, or provide some assistence.
Bookshelf will be where all work towards improving the Fanbards site and the Drupal shell for similar sites will take place. You can come in and discuss features requests in the forums, comment on posts, and basically help out as we try and create a better site solution both for Fanbards and other sites with similar missions.
One of the things I’m hoping to do with the group is create new worlds for everyone to take part in. I’m hoping that as I research, create, and develop others will chip in ideas, or stories, or artwork to support this endeavor. The idea being that we shouldn’t JUST be fans of stories and reinterpret them. WE need to spend time creating new worlds and populating them with ordinary people in extraordinary situations. We need to come up with races and beings and philosophies beyond that which we already know.
So I found this movie a few years ago on Netflix called Lunopolis. I watched it and it was in my opinion a fun movie. It was interesting, it was shot in the style of a found footage documentary and it seems interesting. I purchased it on Amazon Instant and the DVD copy with commentary and such. So I liked it and paid for liking it.
I sw thing of fight choriogrphy for Star Wars this morning. I'll try to find that particular clip later. In the mean time I did a search on Youtube nd found this selection of Lightsaber Duel videos that are fanmade so, enjoy :)
Well, while Warner Bros. may not have been thrilled at the leak of Suicide Squad content that was supposed to stay exclusive to COmic Con, they have decided that they would just up and release the trailer. So We got the Batman v Superman trailer then we get this today.
It's just kick ass how we get such great stuff over time.
Last week was the San Diago Comic Con, and this weekend was a big weekend for a lot of fans of the DC universe. Those who went to see it got to see trailers for Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman. I'm very very looking forward to the expansion of the DC Movie-verse, and hope it will be just as good as the MCU has been so far.
Here's the good quality trailer if you haven't seen it.
Earlier today I received a Facebook message from the current owner of Evamade. Due to real life commitments she no longer has any time to fully realize her vision for the Evamade community. So I am now going to be integrating it into the Evafics.net archive site. That part shouldn't be an issue, I'll just have to add more stories from the deep dive. we'll be doing that a lot here I think, and anyone willing to help is appreciated. Just contact me when you have the time if you want to help.
OK, there is a channel on Youtube called Bat in the Sun that produces Super Power Beat Down, a Web series that takes two characters of modern comics movies, whatevrr and puts it up to who would win in a fight. Tek hates it cause it's by popular vote... which is apparently how the GReen Ranger defeats Ryu from Street Fighter...
... I say if I can drop a giant Dragon Robot on you I win.
Anyway, here is Deadpool and Domino vs The Joker and Harley Quinn!
Well, according to AnimeNewsNetwork there is a new Vampire Hunter D series currently in development. You can find the entire article here but basically there is going to be work in creating a CGI HD Series of the books.
This will probably be my only contribution to the discussion/Massive Torrent of noise round yesterday's Supreme Court Decision if only because I find it to be kick ass.
My position on Gay Marriage has always been along the lines of "I'm not Gay... I have bigger problems to deal with in my life." Let's be honest, if you don't find people of the same sex desirable then this doesn't change your life one damn bit, no matter what side you fall on the debate.
It's time for E3 this week. I have kept up as best I can, and already I've seen stuff to like. First off, the big thing for me. Xbox One will have full backwards compatibility with Xbox 360 games coming this holiday season. Combined with the 1TB model released this week and things are looking good.
#000000" size="3">I've been thinking for a while about many things. It's interesting to note that in the fandoms we have been inundated with some idea that people are free to post what they want but are protected from having to answer or even receive negative commentary about their work. The idea of “IF you Don't Like it, Don't read it.” has infected all parts of life. Frankly it is an idea that needs to be stamped out.
#000000" face="Calibri" size="3">So I’ve been linked to a lot of “Men’s Right’s” posts condemning Mad Max: Fury Road. I haven’t’ seen the flick yet, frankly I think the only thing I dislike about it so far is the fact that Max (Tom Hardy) is the one doing the voice over in the trailer. I’ll go into that in another article, but it’s an artistic opinion. I wonder though, how many people, both with these alpha males and cheering Charlize Theron on understand how long Sci-Fi/Fantasy has had strong lead or supporting female characters.
WEll, I was tooling around Hulu and I found something interesting. Now, if you have Netflix or Amazon Instant or any video service and enjoy Doctor Who Classic Episodes, you know tha tthese services do NOT have all of the Classic run on them. I'm not sure why or what BBC is doing, but they just don't.
Enter in Hulu which in fact DOES seem to have the entire run of the Classic Series, including An Unearthly Child, Series 1 Episode 1. Thank you Hulu.
I was looking at what came down on Facebook and saw this from GeekxGirls.com. It's a whole load of workout routines based on superheros and comicbook characters. Frankly this sounds kick ass, especially since they have one for those of us who wish to be Batman.
