Yes I'm enjoying Doom Patrol imensly, much more the Titans, Aloong with Cliff and Crazy Jane Mr Nobody is another highlight for me he also does a great job as the narrator in a wonderful Morrison meta way.   Danny the Street episode was just class.
Didn't know Happy season 2 had dropped my gut have to have a poke around see where it's at or when it might drop on Netflix.

Just back from the other Captain Marvel (Shazam).  Lots of fun just on the right side of cheese.  I don't really know too much about the character except what I e caught on the J.L cartoons but overall a fun little romp.  Don't know a lot about the legal hassles but oh my I can see the similarities with the other other Marvel Man (Miracleman).  i clapped when the rest of the Marvel family showed up.
D.C. Seem to be on a bit of a roll at the moment, Aquaman was more fun than it should've been now this, maybe they should give the big two a break for a while and concentrate on the also rans.

Off Topic / Re: The Older Dads Thread
« on: 07 March, 2019, 08:39:13 AM »
Congrats I myself just had my first on 2 years ago at the age of 42, like you I was worries about being an older father and thought my daughter may get teased when she goes to school about having a granddad for a dad but if you look around its becoming the new normal to have your kids later and really no disadvantage to the kids.  Like others have mentioned it actually is an advantage as you tend to be more grown up and have much more time for them.  I'm also of short attention span and was worried that after a coupl of months I'd get board of her but what do you know 2 years later and she's still the center of my world and the best thing I've ever done!!
I just found out 2 weeks ago she's going to have a little brother or sister around October/November so very happy again.  Good luck you'll find its the greatest thing ever to happen to you.

Titans recently which wasn't too bad but seemed to only be half a season the way it ended.
Been binging on Season 2 of Runaways, very good episode 6 or 7 being a particular standout though there are still another 6 episodes to go and I'm not sure where they are going to go with it now.  I remember reading the comics when they first came out but the storyline seems quite different in the series compared to the comics but the characters all seem pretty spot on as far as the actual Runaways go, the parents are no where near as evil and bad as they were in the comics infact said they are quite sympathetic in most cases (except Wilders mum she's just an outright bitch).  Definitely worth a watch.

Bumble Bee, well it took them what 5 - 6 attempts but I think they finally made a decent Transformers movie (though I didn't mind the first one for all my sins).  The opening 15 minutes or so just gave me warm tingles for the original series which I guess it was supposed to (and proof the original designs can work in live action) and the rest wasn't too bad too, sure it was all a bit ET and Iron Giant but if you're gonna rip off some movies you might as well go for some good ones.  That wrestler guy was okay but the whole military sub plot was a tad undercooked, the main girl did pretty well good little actress and quite cute too but way too young for me these days l, the real star was definitely Bumble Bee he was so well done, solid and endearing. I liked lots

Mortal Engines, quite entertaining and some nice miniature work I do believe not all CGI (though there was plenty of that too).  A tad predictable in spots and even though it was very Steam Punkish it definitely cribbed quite bit from Starwars I think i saw the Hester I'm your father bit coming from along away off.  Unfortunately it'll probably flop as it isn't a remake, sequel or super hero movie.
I recommend though if you get a chafe definatly worth a watch.

Well finally got around to watching Venom, was expecting the worst but really quite enjoyed it.  A lot funnier than I expected, the interplay between Venom and Eddy being the highlight, the bike chase was veery entertaining but the final fight a bit of a mess but I suppose should be expected as it was two CGI  messes just going at each other.  3 out of 5 from me, didn't knock it out of the park but certainly better than a lot of the reviews would have you believe.

Wow, now that was an awesome episode, probably one of the best new Whi  episodes yet.  I've never really thought about t that period of history and how totally unfair it was to people just because the colour of their skin but that was an eye opener for me.  Even had a bit of a tear in my eye at the end and I'm not ashamed to admit it, top TV

just got back from Pacific Rim Uprising, even more Anime than the first, from the plucky teenage pilots to the Evangelion sort of drones when they were deployed and taken over by the Kaju brains they looked very Evangelion to me.  I had fun, the missus enjoyed it wasted a couple of the characters that were in it from the first poor Mako didn't hve much to do before she was knocked off and di't like the reveal about Dr geiizler but it was fairly predictableand no Ron Pearlman was a bit dissapointing but overall a decent blockbuster watch.   The new Jagers a quite a bit more nimble than the old lot but I suppose that could be put down to 10 years of advancements, oh and the actress that played the head of the Chinese corporation that was working on the drone program was absolutley geogeous.
Fun 3 1/2 out of 5 stompy robots from me.

Episode 3 is just about one of the darkest things I've ever seen left me feeling so downprobably because I became a dad last year I just couldn't handle the the infanticide 
Great series but like I said number three just a little bit too dark for me

Dune, i tried to read this years ago when i was younger but it never grabbed me but now in my more advanced age I'm quite enjoying it.  The David Lynch movie actually isn't too bad a version of the story all things considered I wonder if Veldiview still has this in the works as he might be able to pull it off judging by what he did with the Blade Runner sequel.
Speaking of sequels are the sequel books worth reading when I'm done with this one I heard very mixed reviews of them and have been told he doesn't really finish the story?

And a fun time was had by all, this was great, cinema erupted in laughter at the right moments probably funnier that Guardians of the Galaxy.  Absolute blast, Blanchet having fun chewing scnery as the bad guy, Hulk making friends, Loki getting a good arc, Valkarie was a bad arse and Thor being a riot.
Not to mention Rock monster man nearly stealing the show, knowing a couple of Kiwi's i swear I've met him before  :lol:
Will watch again when comes out for home butat the moment probably my favorite Marvel jam yet.

Well I think that was way better than the first, i actually managed to stay awake through this one the first movie while i admit it is very good on certain levels it does always put me to sleep, this had my interest right through it 2 hour 40 minutes.  As mentioned spectacular looking and the sound was earbleedingly good too.
Two thumbs up.

just watched episode 1, enjoyed it, but I'm not really are hard core trekkie I like all of the series even Voyager its good to get some SF on TV but I dont know how the hardcore Trekies (Trekers???) will get on with it.  New Klingon design is a bit full on not sure they can explain the change with a virus thingie that they did between the original series and later ones.  I like Orville too but no wheer near enough dick jokes.

Okja - on Netflix, damn they are getting good at making movies, both mad and sad and happy the whole lot, very good story well acted nice mesh of Korean and Holywood film making.  From the director of Snowpiercer but way better and the damn Superpig was absolutly adorable.
Also watched Train to Busan the otehr week, a great Zombie movie when you think they couldn't do anything original with zombies anymore strongly recomend both.
Also while not a movie it is in Netfix GLOW (Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) is great too, binged all 10 episodes in two day and well worth it.
