So with all the new changes to the forum I just wanted to reach out to everyone that was a regular, lurker or fan of the Ultimate Universe forum. Feel free to send me a pm or just post here and we can figure out how to keep our love for the UU around. I know we didn't all agree all the time but I really felt a sense of connection based on Marvel's alternate Universe and I'd like to keep it going. So Plawsky, Wyo, DRZ, Agemoni, Mr. Monster Munch and all the others hit me up.

Nah, you probably will get a forum. The Avengers don't have one yet either. I haven't been in CBR that long, but maybe the forums we have right now are the original forums? They still have to update it all.

Have the Ultimate and Avengers forums been absorbed into the Marvel Comics forum? If that's true, I'm pretty sad. The Ultimate Universe deserves a forum. For those who don't know, I used to be Doctor Malekith. I only posted on the Ultimate boards a few times, so you might not know me. It's been a crazy day.

I only have three episodes of Orphan Black left. I stand by that Maslany is the worst actor on the show. The acting has gotten better though. As good as it is I have to admit that I'm a little disappointed that for this genre how standard the show is though. It's good, not mind-blowing by any stretch of the imagination, but good enough for me to keep watching.

It's a weird move, this is meant to invite people more with these new rules, but at the same time, those same people who threatened with rape, they're still going to re-register as well, so it all depends how serious the moderators and users take these new rules. Because a swift ban, should literally mean a swift ban.

So I was in the Games forum and I thought, "Hey, there should be a thread for people to post their Let's Plays and such." Then I checked the rules and that would be self-promotion and so I couldn't make the thread :(

If you are civil and like comics, you fit the buddy criteria. Welcome! :D

Yeah, the sub forum was an incredibly positive place. The X-Forums were fun for a good internet joust and some more controversial (dare I say debaucherous?) topics, but the Ultimate forums were very friendly and accepting of any type of fan. Hardcore, cynic, newcomer, optimist, movie lover, indie fan, whatevs. Kinda like the Hufflepuff of the old CBR.

It has been great actually. I only have XO: Wolverine and The Wolverine left to watch before the 23rd. A buddy of mine currently has my copy of The Wolverine because he never saw the extended cut so I'll need to snag that back from him soon but I agree that the added scenes should have been left in. I also thought the appearance of blood in the movie helped it feel more like a Wolverine movie. His claws are sharp, the movies should show that lol.

But Revival takes place in rural Wisconsin. The town has been quarantined because the dead are coming back to life, but they are Not your typical zombies. They're called `revivers,' and they are talking and walking around, and acting just like themselves for the most part. No one knows what the cause is or how to stop it.

I have no idea if it clone never read or seen the walking dead.

But Revival takes place in rural Wisconsin. The town has been quarantined because the dead are coming back to life, but they are Not your typical zombies. They're called `revivers,' and they are talking and walking around, and acting just like themselves for the most part. No one knows what the cause is or how to stop it. Officer Dana Cypress, who is investigating the revivers. Her dad is the sheriff and has assigned her to the special task force. The story revolves around Dana and her family, including her son and younger sister, as this small town tries to deal with all these newly revived people.

Huh. Seems interesting enough. Guess I'll check it out. Thanks!

I want to say 10/10, but I'll lower it to 9, because there's this one bit that I don't really mind all that much, but it is stretching things a bit far. You'll probably figure it out in the opening pages.

Just post a few more times and you're golden.

Also, what would you guys think if I did become a mod?

Okay, well I'm looking forward to it, and I hope it delivers.
And about becoming a mod, just go for it is what I think, and good luck with it.

You know, this sounds similar enough to George Romero's Empire of the Dead comic series.

All I can even afford to get is Amazing Spider-Man. I'd make my wallet cry if I even attempted getting anything else. Miles Morales...wait for me...

If I were still pulling it, I'd give you the digital codes, but Bendis's writing on this book moves at such a glacial pace that I get frustrated when I try to read anything of his issue-by-issue.

YOU PHILISTINE!

Seriously, the entire series is on Netflix so you need to get on that!

All that's been stated on it is that it's a prequel focusing on Saul's business before he recruited by Heisenberg.

No, I don't think it does at least anyway. But the premise of it is that the zombies are starting to feel humanity and they start to talk and try to co-exist with humans. But it sounded like revival because of the zombies walking and talking.

Well, I'm trade-waiting the Ultimate books at the moment, so there's no rush to catch up. :D

Oh, good, me, too. Only All-New Ultimates and Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man, though. I've no interest in UFF.

So about the thread name…

I meant to change it, but then I moved it. And then I remembered that I'm not a moderator over here, so I can't change it anymore. If you guys decide on a new name, PM the Community Mod and ask him if you'd like.

That said, I'm not sure how long this will stay a thread of its own. One of the goals of this new setup is to be more inclusive and less cliquish. Having several off-topic threads based off the old boards seems to be a bit counterproductive in that respect. Just a warning.

Yeah but there's already like 3 different Community topics, one more shouldn't hurt and these new forums are meant to be more welcoming than ever. It would be counter productive to be rude to the people who have been active here long and suddenly are out of an sub-forum, a sub-forum that was active mind you.

Like I've said - I wasn't behind the changes. I miss the Ultimate Subforum more than anyone, I can assure you of that, but we can move on.

Neither am I in charge of what our policy becomes on these types of chat threads; we're working on it. I know we have our community that's been built over the past several years, but we can adapt to changes. We'll see where this goes over the next few weeks - I'm sure nothing is set in stone just yet.

How Hellboy forum (http://community.comicbookresources.com/forumdisplay.php?18-Hellboy) got to keep it's forum is beyond me.

Since alot of people are going to see Amazing Spider-Man 2 tonight, here's my review of it again: (http://drzblog.tumblr.com/post/83859491804/the-amazing-spider-man-2-movie-review)


https://31.media.tumblr.com/f7576a69c9ccd3cf91c02ec2686caf5c/tumblr_inline_n4m1e4WgGA1qjtjj7.jpg
Marc Webb returns to his Amazing Spider-Man world with a fluid sequel continuing the story, with the Peter Parker (Andrew Garfield) & Gwen Stacy (Emma Stone) relationship going through the ups & downs. What makes Amazing Spider-Man 2 stand out is that we have these two excellent actors with such great, believable sexual chemistry. It expands the concept of superhero movies & gives us a movie that focuses on youth’s passionate love.

Spider-Man’s charm comes not only because of his cool powers, good costume & a great villain gallery, it’s downright the fact that he is such a human being and a real hero. Spider-Man’s spirit is performance with great detail, from within the action sequences through saving human lives to montage scenes of everyday assisting: saving a young child from school bullies, helping people, etc. Spider-Man takes great notice on the people and his surroundings, using his clever quips to encourage people in today’s cruel, narcissistic world where no one truly gives a damn about anyone but themselves. Peter Parker, while abandoned as a child, was still raised in a home of loving & appreciatory parents thanks to Uncle Ben & Aunt May (Sally Field).

This is why the villains of our story, Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx) & Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan) are his opposites. Max is a lonely person who suffers from it, delusional that fame would bring him joy & lacking any proper social skills. He is a brilliant minded scientist being taken for granted. Harry Osborn is the prodigal son of the great Norman Osborn, but all he’s done since 16 is drink scotch, date models and waste his father’s money because Norman doesn’t even love him. They both suffer loneliness, because the world hasn’t shown them tenderness. There’s a great chemistry between the actors; they’re both miserable, but also creepy. However, I do want to nitpick about a certain villain character: Dr. Kafka (Marton Csokas). Who on earth thought a “German mad scientist” was needed for a Spider-Man movie? Why is there a doctor with such a ridiculous name? Why does it have to be a mad scientist who speaks with an awful German accent & listens loudly to Strauss? C’mon now, this was some awful stain on the movie.

The combat sequences are a spectacle; they’re not choreographed action beats of fists & kicks, but a beautiful acrobatic demonstration of the total imagination that only a character such as Spider-Man can achieve. It’s very pleasurable to look at, with Electro sporting a very kick-ass theme song composed by Hans Zimmer, the Magnificent Six, Pharrell Williams & Johnny Marr. The Point-of-view shots of Spider-Man web-slinging & slow motion demonstrations of his spider-sense tingling danger are truly visual entertainment that does justice to the character.

Marc Webb’s story spins webs of new stories, but the way things ended for the Amazing Spider-Man 2, I am more keenly interested in the announced spin-off movie the Sinister Six than I am for Spider-Man 3.

The Hellboy forum is actually sponsored by the official website and it's just hosted on the CBR forums. I don't think they would be allowed to get rid of it just like that. Plus, Hellboy is awesome.
