I don’t think the tone of the DC movies so far has been what’s doomed them. Nonsensical plot points, scenes that start something and proceed to go nowhere, and pacing that allows them to wallow in their own shit for an hour before suddenly ramping the narrative through a building – that’s what’s turned these things from “movies” into “collections of half-formed ideas barely held together by themes that the characters constantly shout at each other.” And when that complaint was put through the I Need To Get This Down To 140 Characters Or Less Translator, it apparently came out as “Needs more jokes!”

The Marvel movies can be pretty funny. Ant Man, Guardians Of The Galaxy, and every line from Peter Parker in Captain America: Civil War are all humorous without feeling like someone went through the scripts with a red-tipped pen to make sure that these costume parades got some ha ha’s. And that feeling is super important, because it at least gives off the illusion that once we enter the theater, we’re being put into the hands of competent filmmakers who know how to manage a mood, and not the wallets of executive overlords screaming “GET ROBERT DOWNEY JR. FOR A CAMEO, YOU FUCK!” at every opportunity.

But adding lightheartedness to a movie is not a tonal Band-Aid. We already saw that applied to Suicide Squad, and that thing ended up seeming like a tug of war between two totally different Suicide Squads. Batman v. Superman would not have benefited from some sprinkling of whimsy. To create a movie that can handle a mess of jokes, you have to rebuild it as such from the ground up.

5 Gripes About DC Movies That Totally Miss The Point

@jasonsalillas fucking surfing the concrete ramp…spray everywhere 🌊 (not really but you can imagine what it would be like).

I seem to keep missing this detail in the campaign.

What kind of ship does the Mynock crew use?


1. I love that this is how you asked this. 

2. The Mynock is a heavily modified GAT`12 Skipray Blastboat. Its main modifications are that it has a shallow second floor (basement) that contains all it’s cargo space, a cage that they use as a brig, and a fresher. that’s also where the on-ramp is. And it has a turret bubble on the top that bacta sits in. Whether or not all this hugely affects the silhouette shape is up to you. You can’t see the turret bubbles on the Millennium Falcon at all. Not everything that’s in that ship can fit in that ship. *shrugs* 

I guess at this point it’s engine’s also a major modification, but that doesn’t affect what you see. 

Naomi’s first move tonight was a freaking huricarana on the ramp, then preceeded to beat the rest of the heels like they were low tier Metro City baddies in Final Fight.

If she doesn’t win back the title Sunday…

So I've been toying around with the notion of building a serious commander deck instead of my usual fare of Norin the Wary, or Kemba Voltron. I've also been looking into Rashmi, Eternities Crafter due to pulling a foil in a Kaladesh pack a buddy got me for my birthday. What I'm trying to ask is, is there a way to build her without constructing an elfball deck or an oppressive control deck?

Yeah. Chaos and big dumb silly spells. Bring to Light, Urban Evolution, Unexpected Results, tons of mana-doubling effects, ramp into something ridiculous that nobody expects or doesn’t do anything super effective. Maybe Prosperity or Minds Aglow. 

Rashmi Random Group Hug Ramp.

Guess what baby I saw you complain about me posting links in chat once and I've been doing it more and more recently just to make you specifically angry. I'm glad for the feedback, boo. I will ramp it up now.

How could I ever complain about JoeJoe? This is how I know it’s a fake one


I have an idea for a mini series (possibly three parts?)

Pretty much what happens is that some major attack leads to Annabella unleashing a new found power. A cry so powerful it rivals Black Canarys. The cry causes that any animal in the near by area run ramped and for nature to spiral out of control… sound familiar? Well it is later discovered that she’s not actually a metahuman but instead was blessed by the god Pan when she was born. Now that the god is dying she’s offered a choice to replace him on Olympus or stay on earth but risk losing her powers. (If you’ve ever read Percy Jackson this is kinda based off that).

Would anyone like to see this? Cause I’d love to work on it the only problem is that I have no idea how to start it.

to the driver of the silver minivan who deemed it necessary to blare their car horn at me after i found myself sitting at the round about after a series of cars came shooting off the off ramp making it impossible for me to go forward without getting hit:

1) i hope that whatever stressors and microagressions you had collected that day were blown away with your car honking

I think they needed to do this storyline of jack going north as it's what is right but I also think they have taken a massive risk! I don't think he will leave the show but if answers aren't given in the last four episodes they will lose viewers and possibly not get a season 5?

All of your messages are sort of the same so I’m just going to combine them all (:

  • There is no way Daniel is leaving the show. Jack will be gone for an episode or two, but will be back. They may even do a “missing in action” story to ramp up the drama, but he’ll be back. And despite what Brian Bird says, season 5 is a certainty. The ratings have never been higher and every episode this season has had more viewers than the week before. Hallmark is not stupid! 
  • I think Dan will be back by the finale. If I’m correct, it seems like the timeline matches up with when he went to shoot “Timeless” on NBC and I think they took the opportunity to stretch his absence out just. He better freaking come back. 

If it ends on some dumb cliffhanger people are going to be very upset.  I feel like they could do something like that.  It honestly wouldn’t surprise me.  Then Brian Bird would force fans to beg for another season which he seems to enjoy (and expect).  Losing Dan would pretty much ensure the demise of the show.  I do think and hope Jack will be back by the finale as well.  It was right that he left and, like I’ve mentioned before, Jack and Elizabeth needed to face this part of Jack’s life so I think it’s ultimately a good thing but if the show drags his absence out for an extended period of time, they can’t expect the fans to be happy with it.


Good wood - how have I never seen this before? Might just be the coolest pad I’ve posted to date… especially if you’re a hardcore skater. The ‘Merello House’ by WMR architects in Pichilemu, a coastal resort southwest of Santiago in central Chile.
