Anyone else like Agent Carter?

I find it interesting. it is nice to see a strong female lead (shame it is a mini series, but being set in the past can place limitations). I do love seeing all the old cars and the cool outfits (Carter's red hat makes me think of Carmen Sandiego)

@renchamp: yeah, movies have always been unregulated territory. We've talked about it a number of times since I became a mod but nothing concrete ever came of those discussions.

Just looking at the movie section again I have to say you are right to bring this up. It was bad when I became a mod (first act as mod was to delete a good number of movies), but now it's just a little rediculous. I mean, Gumby: The Movie? And there are so many public domain character based movies it's rediculous. I think we need to work on what we want on the site because like would, say, Dexter's Laboratory: Ego Trip be acceptable seeing as Dexter does have appearences/a series?

Also (and this is important question which decides the fates of hundreds of movies): you said if the movie had a connected comic series OR a solid appearence base the movie should be added...so how directly should these movies be to their comic books? because clearly we don't want the ballets, but what DO we allow? Like The Adventures of Robin Hood or any of the Alice in wonderland movies? Where do we draw the line? we want to keep movies like Alice in Wonderland because those are unique adaptions whose style had comics/appearences (even if the characters are public domain), but do we allow all the rest because agrubably we could site the illustrated classics and other simi-connected comics? We just need to clarify that one point so we know what we allow and what we don't.

@rorie related to movies: when the site was revamped there was mentions of pages we didn't want to delete as they gave us hits on people's search results. Clearly we don't want the televised ballets based on the Hunchback of Notre Dame as Renchamp mentioned and we don't want to allow the addition of movies simply because a public domain character is in it. I guess what I am asking is: can you give us any info related to search hits and movies?

My main focus is: http://www.comicvine.com/alice/4005-21451/movies/ as clearly we have TONES of Alice in Wonderland movies (and already I can identify a good number that should be deleted but I will keep them if just to use as exampled of what we allow and what we won't)

Look out guys, I just got a big boost in seniority.

Look out! it's an old person! Run away or he'll tell us for the thousandth time how, back in the day, he had to "walk barefoot up a hill in the snow" to ban a person!
