Doing another bump because I'm looking for attention... (and an Ice Crusaders comic)...

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

It's great. I mean, insert your (my) standard complaint about an over-CGI-reliant finale here, but, honestly, I really enjoyed it. It looks lovely throughout — it's worth watching for the early fight sequences (especially the much-praised bus fight at the start) but it's basically Marvel does Crouching Tiger/House of Flying Daggers.

Obviously, if you insert "Marvel" at the start of that sentence then for a non-trivial bunch of people that invalidates the rest of the sentiment, but I really enjoyed it. Stick with it for both the mid-credit and end-of-credit sequences.

I have to admit, I did manage to catch it at the cinema here in Oz (finally), and wasn't blown away... but caught it again with the family on Disney+ last weekend and enjoyed it a heap more the second time around.

Had a similar experience with Black Widow, and pretty sure I'll do the same with Eternals. These recent Marvel films do seem to grow on you...

I might have mentioned it a few times....

I remain baffled as to why you keep watching them. Surely, at some point in the 25+ movie franchise you must have thought: these aren’t for me…?

Alas its part of my job to know the deal with these fricking things.

I take no joy in this, I would switch places with any of the saints in their moments of agony any time.

No idea what it is you folks do that require you to know the deal with the Marvel films, but the active hatred of them is obvious!

Speaking as someone who actually works on the Marvel films and therefore having to watch them multiple times to know them all backwards, I can say that I manage to find things to enjoy in most of the MCU output. There's always things that you think could be done better or differently, and there's a couple that I do find easily forgotten. But I'd rather go into them looking for positives. Much healthier all round!

This goes for all forms of entertainment, I guess.

THE ROAD WARRIOR

Gonna get lynched for this but it's probably my least favourite of the MM films and at times embodies some of Millers worst habits as a director. Still a fun time in the first and final acts with a lot of drag in between.

I reserve my judgement and remain silent due to a crushing feeling of horror and deep, deep disappointment.

Hey folks - been a while since last I asked, but thought I'd try my luck again - anyone happen to have a copy of the 2000AD Diesel promotional prog?

Pretty much the last prog on my wants lists - been after it for a while! Bit hard finding it down here in Oz.

If any of you fine folks feel like sending a copy down to sunny Sydney, I'd be happy to take it off your hands for a reasonable sum of galactic groats.

Cheers all!

Oooo. If you don't want it Bojay, I'll have it!

Yeah, this looks a little stiff and Superman looks like one of the guys hanging around Hollywood Blvd forcing you to pay him money when you take a pic with him but I trust Miller. We'll never really know how this would have looked once it was polished up but Miller's got a good head on his shoulders. He'd have pulled this off. I mean, honestly, could it have ended up any worse than what's currently going on in DC-land...?

I probably should have pointed out that only the actors playing Wonder Woman and Martian Manhunter are shown here, the rest of them are Weta Workshop guys...

Armie Hammer was playing Bruce Wayne/Batman - the guy is 6' 4" on his own, with the Batsuit on he was nearly 7 ft. It was - impressive.

On the other hand, DJ Catrona as Superman was about 5' 7"...

Plenty of apple boxes on set...

Just had to post higher res versions of the costume test images from George's JL:Mortal.

So, so happy this film never got made. Though seeing Megan Gale as Wonder Woman was a pleasant experience. Poor bloody Immortan Joe nearly expired under all those Martian Manhunter prosthetics though.

It is somewhat sobering to think that it was Happy Feet that finally enabled Fury Road to get made...

I never quite understood what that weird sequence with David Bowie in FBI HQ was about... but I love the fact it's there.

Such a lovely and strange scene  :lol:

I connect it to the disappearance of agent Desmond and Cooper. That he came from where they went. Arriving in a vision, a bit like Cooper later does when he is asking Laura not to take the ring.

I'm hoping you've seen the big chunk of deleted scenes from the film with Bowie?

I love seeing his character cameo quickly in TP:FWWM - one of my favourite Bowie moments in film - but those deleted scenes are just bugnut-insane...

The David Bowie sequences from both the final cut of FWWM and The Missing Pieces are "explained" in Twin Peaks series 3, along with a whole lot more bugnut insanity. Highly recommended if you can handle 18 hours of full-on David Lynch.

Well, having FINALLY finished this f-----g terrible film I've been on, I might just have time to watch series 3!!

Then again, maybe I should be bugging Tharg as to whether he might have a spare story that needs an artist.

Tough choice...

Must make for quite an interesting relationship with your senior managers when you know that all them have faced death and killed people on a daily basis.

I think the word you're looking for there is "sobering"...

Great stuff.

Been really enjoying the Thrillcasts of late! Keep up the excellent work Molch-R!
