  1. Um… David? I think you may have forgotten something.

  2. Yup… like the podcast…

  3. I figure this is a good place for this:

    Gavok, please write your review of Turtles Forever. I just saw it last night, and… and… *sniff*

  4. “-A brief visual aide to prove that I’m a huge TMNT fan:”

    Still don’t believe it /armcross

  5. My favorite has to be Batman. Nope, not Dark Knight or the Tim Burton ones, but the Adam West Batman! Yeah! That movie is freaking HILARIOUS!

  6. -See you, space cowboy!

    Hmm, is there a trailer for the Keanu Reeves version yet?

  7. @Gary:

    The Adam West Batman movie has got to be one of the greatest comedies ever made on accident.

  8. My favourite part in the Adam West Batman movie(apart from the exploding shark, obviously) was when Batman deduced the identities of the perpetrators.

    Gordon: Could be any one of them, but which one? W— which ones?
    O’Hara: [gasps]
    Batman: Pretty fishy what happened to me on that ladder.
    Gordon: You mean, where there’s a fish, there could be a Penguin.
    Robin: But wait! It happened at sea! See? “C” for Catwoman!
    Batman: Yet… an exploding shark was pulling my leg!
    Gordon: The Joker!
    O’Hara: [It] all adds up to a sinister riddle. Riddle-er. Riddler?
    Gordon: Oh! A thought strikes me! So dreadful I scarcely dare give it utterance.
    Batman: The four of them. Their forces combined…

    It’s the utter insanity of their reasoning, combined with the fact that they were right that I love. The succeeding scene should be a copper who overhears their conversation realizing that he no longer lives in a world that makes sense, then either putting a gun in his mouth or smearing his face with white make-up then applying lipstick.

  9. I think Marvel’s supernatural line was called Midnight Sons.
    Y’know, the first thing Blade 2 made me think of was the Devil May Cry games. I recall describing them both as “very loud and thumpy” to a friend, they both shared the sword and gun combination and I could’ve sworn Blade performed jumps identical in arc and weight to Dante’s.

    I actually prefered War Machine to Iron Man when I was a kid, before I’d read any comics that featured them. He had the better colour scheme I thought, and I tended to go in for secondary heroes most of the time(always liked Luigi better than Mario, Tails over Sonic etc).

  10. So glad I’m not the only one amused when I see an issue of Giant-Size Man-Thing.

  11. My favorite Batman film is Begins, and then Forever and B&R(they are fun), but the Adam West show stands above them all

    The Losers looks fantastic and I can’t wait to see that

  12. The Jonah Hex movie supposed to be out in June, I think.

  13. The “Chicks dig the car” line was in both Forever and Batman & Robin.

    In Forever, Batman says it to Nicole Kidman when she’s trying to get in his pants, and in Robin, Robin says he wants a car (rather than his motorbike) because “chicks dig the car”, prompting the stupid Superman comeback.

    And I am such a nerd.

  14. @Jordan: The Adam West Batman movie has got to be one of the greatest comedies ever made on accident.

    I’m pretty certain it was on purpose. They definately seemed to have their tongues rammed so far into their cheeks it’s a wonder they were able to speak any lines.

  15. There should just be some kind of tag you can insert into your post so you don’t need to disclaim “I am a nerd” every time you make any sort of post on the internet.

    Also, my wife is excited for the Jonah Hex movie – she’s only aware of the character through seeing me read the comics, and she believes Josh Brolin and Megan Fox – Fox in particular – are going to turn it into a huge trainwreck.

  16. I WAS going to say to David that he really, really doesn’t need to see the Power Pack movie, but then I remember that the reason I’ve seen it so often is because it’s a regular viewing favorite with our eldest girl (10) and is a permanent fixture on the Xbox hard drive. I’d say whatever they were aiming for when they made it they clearly missed, but I guess it was just made for a different audience.

    I’m also probably one of the few people who thought the Daredevil movie was okay. Not fantastic, but okay.

  17. Wait, what? Power Pack movie? I gotta check this out…

    And Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is the best Batman movie, ever, bar none.

  18. @Lugh: Well yeah, those of us who waste hours of our lives rabidly writing on the internet about comics are nerds.

    I was more disputing that David was ever a child *rim shot*
