    Captain America: The Winter Soldier made more money worldwide than Man of Steel did, though. Which is kind of amazing if you think about it: A guy wearing the American flag beat out the most...

    I'll just put it this way:

    If an actor came long today and brought to life a comic book character as accurately and completely as Romero embodied the Joker of the time, fanboys would be bowing...

    Pay attention to what's in the background of several of the shots in the Collectors' Menagerie.

    Avatar will never be the next Star Wars. It did great as a movie, but it would require a LOT more multimedia appeal and success to get anywhere near Star Wars. Toys, video games, books, comics,...

    The movie was pretty excellent, but no sequel. It's great as a one-off and deserves more success and recognition than it's getting, but not everything needs to be a franchise.

    The thing is, "humanity" doesn't always mean "do the right or compassionate thing." Humanity can just as easily mean "I'm really freakin' messed up in the head." If Sandor wasn't "on her list"...

    I think people might be misreading Arya's state of mind in leaving the Hound.

    I didn't take it as her being stone-cold. I took it as Arya not being able to bring herself to do it because "He's...

    The comic book Age of Ultron storyline had both time and dimensional travel elements to it.

    We've already heard rumors of a 1940's scene (with Haley Atwell and Paul Bettany).

    As I said.... (Bold portion above).

    To be clear, there's nothing at all wrong about liking Stannis as a character. He is in fact an interesting character despite being (in universe) "boring" and...

    Stannis isn't enthralled by magic. He chose to use the Red Priestess, and that makes him culpable in her actions in Westeros, which she routinely takes in his name, for his benefit. He was also...

    You do have a point here.

    All in all, I'd say the first FF wasn't "bad" so much as "mediocre." And ultimately I think about 80 percent of the flack it gets is because (of course) they totally...

    Stannis is harsh, but he isn't by any stretch of the imagination "just." Justice must be tempered with compassion, and applied fairly. Stannis grabs people to burn basically at random because the...

    I'm not sure. I think TF4 breaks the top 3, but there MAY be franchise fatigue that kicks in there. Excitement seems lower for this one than previous outings.
