@maniac2312: Oh man, That sucks you lost access to that account. I just noticed that this list is roughly 11 years old so I'm guessing it was created during Shadowland, also my comment is 5 years old now. Yeah, the Widow is a good story, I'd definitely give it a read.

Ouch. This review is brutal. Honestly, the only thing I cared to see in the movie was the end credits scene because it reassured us that Henry Cavill is still Superman. Everything else looks messy, I might wait for the DVD release unless I have friends who really want to see it in theaters.

@riddlersriddle: True. Who knows what'll happen? Brandon Routh got a better outing as Superman in Crisis on Infinite Earths too. So maybe sometime in the near distant future, these castings will remerge. The good thing about a character like Raphael or Hellboy is that those characters are largely voicing roles and so they could reuse the actors in a rebooted film franchise. Just look at how many times Peter Cullen voices Optimus Prime.

@riddlersriddle: that's why this news from Andrew Koji about returning as Storm Shadow was disappointing. After watching Snake Eyes I had hoped to see Henry Golding and Andrew Koji play Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow in a better movie, sounds like that better movie isn't happening. I also thought the Turtles casting in the new TMNT movies was good particularly Alan Ritchson as Raphael. It's a shame they weren't used in better movies. That's why I'm glad Thomas Jane made Dirty Laundry so he got a better movie than the 2004 film.

@riddlersriddle: it's always disappointing when good casting gets squandered on bad movies.

@riddlersriddle: Yeah. It sounds like the direction and writing were atrocious. I heard Harbor was fine in the role, just undermined by everything else with the film.

@riddlersriddle: Yeap. The first one was directed by Jonathan Liebesman who directed Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans, The Killing Room, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (oddly enough TCM: TB was also produced by Michael Bay). The second one, Out of the Shadows, was directed by Dave Green whose only feature film directing credit is Earth to Echo, but also directed a few short films beforehand.

The 2019 Hellboy movie was panned. It currently sits at 17% on Rotten Tomatoes based on 223 reviews from critics with 39 critics giving it positive reviews and 184 critics giving it negative reviews. Basically, the vast majority of critics didn't like it.

@riddlersriddle: The IDW TMNT is still running, the trades collect the story arcs that have finished and not the current arc. The funny thing is I haven't seen the TMNT films that Michael Bay produced. I have seen the original live-action films and the 2007 CGI TMNT film where Chris Evans was Casey Jones. I think coming to realize how bad the Michael Bay-directed Transformers movies were when those TMNT films came out made me pass on them even if Bay was a producer on those as opposed to a director. Maybe I'll watch them someday. Maybe when I see Transformers The Last Knight, Hellboy (2019), and Fant4stic I'll watch those TMNT movies.

@riddlersriddle: good call. The IDW stuff is the current stuff so it's probably going to be the most accessible. Yeah, that's effectively how I approached TMNT, Transformers, and GI Joe was starting with the IDW stuff and working backward. Granted with GI Joe and Transformers I read the IDW trades for the Dreamwave Transformers and DDP GI Joe comics with IDW's original content for those franchises. I knew a bit more about the Ninja Turtles going into the comic because I watched the cartoons on the CW For Kids so I knew about the Turtles, Shredder, Splinter, and the Foot as well as Casey, Krang, Hun, Baxter, the Purple Dragon, and Bebop & Rocksteady.

@riddlersriddle: Yeah it's basically that an honor roll type thing. Recognized for doing well in school.
