I've never read any comics myself so I can't say anything about them or their quality, but judging by the movies I've seen (which has actually become quite a sizeable number in recent years!) Marvel have a much more compelling roster of characters than DC. The only DC universe I'm even a little bit compelled by is Batman, and I don't even like Batman - just the characters surrounding him

    It was amazing. Well they got some of the English wrong but it was still amazing.

    I buy online usually, Amazon is my usual hunting ground.

    Maybe now is a good time to comment that His Holiness Joss Whedon isn't as amazing as the Whedonites make him seem.

    I don't know, Joss Whedon is pretty cool. Ever seen Firefly? or am I the only one? That show was the best. He also wrote or helped write the screenplay for Toy Story. !

    edit: May I inquire why this thread is called the death of the C&M daily chit-chat?

    His Whedonness isn't a god, but he did a fine job with Avengers so I'm happy to see him make another one. It will give me a change to buy and wear this t-shirt:



    I'm less thrilled to see Joss is going to make a TV show. Firefly I liked, but not Buffy nor Angel. Dollhouse I didn't get very far into so I can't say much about it. If he's working with already established stories and characters it could be interesting. I could see him making some kind of Runaways TV series.

    That he did. And I'm very thankful for that. That script laid out the foundation for the series and Pixar as a whole.

    He also worked on Disney's Atlantis movie, which I enjoyed.

    Avengers was also Disney. This Marvel TV show? Disney again.

    So, Whedon + Disney seems to be a good match. XD

      Not all movies are that long. Movies that are only about an hour and a half are ideal for me. I like biographical films the most. I'm more of a music person than a film person though.

      I really need to watch Toy Story 3. I loved the first two as a kid.

        I can only pray for your future if you honestly do not have the patience to sit through (on average) one and a half hours of film. You mentioned you like anime, yes? As much as I despise anime, maybe you should try to treat movies as if they are back to back episodes of a particular anime? I’m assuming you, with the attention span of a hamster on crack, cannot handle the long waiting at cinemas and specifically, the lack of being able to pause or rewind a film. So, here’s an idea. Download/buy/rent out a film of your choosing, as long as it’s not anime or based off an anime. Try watching that film for as long as possible and when your miniscule attention span has had enough of the film, pause it. Record the time you finished watching it at and count that as an ‘episode.’ At a later point in time, try watch ‘episode 2’ of the film. Repeat until the film has finished! Now you can enjoy film and simultaneously appease that molecular-sized attention span!

        Uh, what’s the point of watching something if you’re going to fast-forward through the boring parts? Don’t you feel confused by the sudden twists and turns of the plot? How are you not left feeling dazed and confused, so to speak?

        You've NEVER seen Toy Story!?!?!

        GO! Fly you fool! :D
        Try not to cry too hard during the third one, though. That movie is beautiful. :'(

          You should really watch them all. Indeed, the first one is the reason why your beloved Joss is an Oscar nominee. Third one's the best, though. Makes me well up every time I think of industrial incinerators.

          See, now that everybody's talked about how emotional the third one is, I don't know if I'd find it emotional. There's been too much build-up, you've set my expectations for teariness too high and now I'm not confident it can compete with them.

          Anyway I haven't seen LOTR either, and I've only seen Star Wars Episode 1 and Episode 5. I didn't see the big deal about Episode 5, but Episode 1 lived up to every word said about it. Every terrible, hilarious word.

          Is this something you do often? XD When I first saw the movie, that's what I thought the sad part would be. But it just got sadder. :'(

          Fly you fools! :D LoTR is really good. I love the chemistry between Gimlee and Legolas. And Merry, Pippin and Treebeard are fantastic. (also Gollum/Smeagol is just the best)

          Also, everyone should watch star wars. You know those internet things that pop up and and make you type a bunch of weird letter/number combos that are really hard to see, to check if you're a human? I've heard you get triple the amount if you haven't seen star wars.

          Oh, and Toy Story 3 will live up to the hype. *sob*

          EMPIRE STRIKES BACK FLIPPING-- oh, I'd never convince you. Instead, let me post this rifftrax which makes fun of Episode 2.

          I didn't get that teary-eyed. It's a Toy Story movie. What unfortunate event looks like is about to happen, is so clearly not going to happen. XD

          But, Up? Up gets me. Every single damn time.


          And wow... what a range there. You saw the best and worst of the Star Wars flicks. I love V. It is amazing. However, it does not stand on its own. I don't think you can appreciate it without having seen IV first

          God, I forget what order the movies are in. IV is A New Hope, right? Because that’s the one I rewatched a couple of days ago and I loooooved it. I couldn’t help imitating Kenobi throughout the movie, lol. (These aren’t the droids you’re looking for. These aren’t the droids we’re looking for.)

          Yup. Kenobi was cool

          Now go watch it again! But this time the "Revisited" fan edit. Seriously, it is impressive

          I've just never really been able to enjoy old movies the way everybody else seems to lol. If they made a remake of Episodes 4-6 I think I'd love it, but I just can't get into the classic vintage feel the way everybody else does

          You're probably right though, I probably should have watched 4 before 5.

          It's the same reason I'm sure I'm going to enjoy the new Total Recall movie, even though I couldn't handle the original. That could also have to do with Arnold Schwarzenegger though.
