  1. Is this thread title a reference to the opening line of Aaliyah (RIP) song, "Try Again"? If so, my pants have dropped, my palms are open.
  2. Delta Goodrem

    I'm so ready for her new album - I'm beyond moist, I'm sodden. Delta is mu thinspiration, my idol, my secret place.
  3. Is it quiet in here? Or is it just me?

    It probably does have something to do with it... Collective passion dying.
  4. Is it quiet in here? Or is it just me?

    I just have more of a life now. (I realised that sounds like I'm saying one had to have no life to post on here before, which is obviously not true, but rather I'm much busier in my real life with...just bits. I have a boyfriend, about to go into third year of uni, etc etc.) My internet use has changed - I am actually a member of loads of forums for various things, but now only visit a few and rarely post, as I'm usually just going to them for information/news/opinions. I only visit a few now - N-Europe, a big Madonna forum, a kinda random but major Tori Amos fan forum that is quite the community but the members are kinda sick of Tori Amos in any case, and sometimes (but I usually forget) a Heroclix forum where I first met ReZ (<3), but again my interest in that is gone.
  5. And isn't that very telling... Expectations of types of films etc.
  6. No, I like that. Reminds me of Blue Velvet. *always a good thing*
  7. I did like how in principle the 'get rid of his venom and he's done' was still present in this version of Bane (his mask), but not really explained. How was it keeping him alive/strong? It felt like we didn't need to know. But I liked how it was the same principle as his venom supply (it being his achilles heel).
  8. Finally saw it after 2 weeks in the countryside of the Turkey/Syria border*. SPOILERS!!!! I really enjoyed it, it was great. I need to see it again as I was very tired (on Turkey time, 2 hours ahead), but still loved it. It was a bit messy at points, as it had so much to cram in, and it did feel a bit odd how there were SO many new players and lots of time given to non-costumed characters - BUT in the end it worked. And even though I am a Batman demon with knowledge to the ends of the earth RE: his entire history and rouge's gallery I still physically gasped when the 'real villain' was revealed. I think I was just really tired/delirious :p. Cause obviously I knew it was a possibility since that casting decision. I really liked Bane/his voice. My favourite thing was the reveal of the child's true story. Come on androgyny. I like reveals where you actually already saw the truth (we saw the child escape already) but didn't realise (it wasn't Bane). Hey Talia. I love. I kinda wanted her classic comic hair, but it's fine. I liked that this film was the resolution of Ra's plan (in a way). I kinda hate BLOWING UP THE CITYYYYY but it's fine. Loved how Scarecrow is in all 3 films. Shame Joker isn't here - he shouldn't ever have been a main part, but they could easily have used him in a similar way to Scarecrow - I felt he'd have things to talk about with Bane. But over it. Batman kinda annoyed me, since I hate giving up/I don't know. I'm unsure about an 8-year gap. Feels too long, I can't deal. But I did actually love it. OH SELENA KYLE. OBVIOUSLY Michelle Pfieffefefer's Catwoman is a Queen of Life never-be-topped, but this is a much more comic-accurate interpretation and I like Anne at the best of times, so very happy with her. She didn't need to be in the film at all really, perhaps it would have let the film be more streamlined, but really she fitted in very well. Ra's Al Ghul/ Scarecrow/ The Joker/ Two-Face/ Bane/ Talia Yes. Yeeeees. The League of Unsavoury. I liked the end. AND I agree with Hamish re: how this film makes you feel as opposed to Avengers. Avengers left with much more of an "!!!" excitement immediately after, but TDK trilogy will always be seen as more 'films' in their own right that transcend the 'superhero' genre. Avengers I thought was excellent considering the patchiness of the films preceeding it, and it was better than I expected, I loved it - but The Dark Knight films always have much more of a feeling of uncertainty in it's plotting. That' just...like a filmic fact. They are much more uncompromising than the Avengers films. Ok, so Batman isn't dead, the goodies won, the baddies didn't. But...actually look at that! Batman is dead, Bruce isn't (that happend in an interesting way), the characters all have different motivations blah blah can't be bothered writing anymore but yeah. I loved both films, but TDK does have a quality that makes it very different to Avengers. SPOILERSS!!! *a few hundred miles from it
  9. Batman Week!

    Love Killer Moth but not sold on Poison Ivy. I feel there's no mystique/allure (not meaning she has to be naked/boobs out or anything), but that's a big thing about her. And ginger afros tend to set off alarm bells. She/her face reminds me of a contestant from Britain (and America's) Next Top Model though, one of my faves, Catherine Thomas: She has those sharp, long pointy features that are really intriguing and delicate (like a plant), alluring without being Angelina Jolie jammy and sexual. So I like the face. But not the hair/costume. My fave ivy design is Tim Sale's radical re-interpretation: Very nypmh/dryad, but I like it. More in the vein of 'Let's make his villains more like creatures than humans', but it fits his aesthetic. [/i love Poison Ivy]
  10. Guardians of the Galaxy

    GotG are very very unmainstream...me with all my gargantuan Marvel knowledge and I know very few/what they do/why they exist/what their mission statement is. Rocket Racoon was in Marvel vs. Capcom 3 though. I like that it's getting a film.
  11. Batman Week!

    Clayface is lovely.
  12. Batman Week!

    Clayface is my fave...have you seen the animated series episodes with him? They're my fave. And I love his re-interpretation as disease/AIDS victim in Arkham Asylum (the book/graphic novel, not the game).
  13. Batman Week!

    Oh I love. Catwoman reminds me of a man, but then that stuns more. Yes for the animated series costume reference. I love her booties. I need the entire rogue's gallery. Your interpretations of Poison Ivy, Clayface, Man-Bat, Mr. Freeze, Joker, Riddler...argh. Them all. Do them all. And Batman and Robin.
  14. General Movie Thread

    Watch Part 2! To me neither one feels like a standalone film...a proper case of the sequel being necessary.
  15. The Amazing Spider-Man

    Avenging / Peter Parker, The Spectacular / Sensational / Untold Tales Of / Astonishing / Ultimate / Marvel Knights / Friendly Neighbourhood / Web Of / Deadly Foes Of / Lethal Foes Of / The Many Loves of the Amazing // 's Tangled Web / Unlimited / Family / Loves Mary Jane etc etc. Many pre and suff to choose from.
  16. Comic Book Discussion Issue #2

    Interiors are Cassaday's strongpoint, I'm crying to see them.
  17. Commissions

    I'm going to commission you to do something at some point, when I find the perfect reason. *disappears*
  18. The Avengers

    I think it's the skin tone/detail that does it for me - amazing. Obviously the faces are almost spot-on perfect, but yeah, the skin in flawless (well...not literally..that's the point!).
  19. The Avengers

    I'm not really that riled up about it or anything, it's just stupid. How much more interested would people be in buying it if they saw this instead? Hopefully more. But maybe bum works. Sex sells everything tbf. That's just an amazing bit of toy crafting right there (as with Loki).
  20. But my eyes will be tired! The whole thing doesn't start until like 11, so yeah...will end the next morning! I'd rather just watch the prior two in the run-up. ALTHOUGH I'm going to be away when it comes out!! I hate. Everyone will have seen it before me.
  21. A cinema local to me (the oldest one in Edinburgh I think) is doing a marathon, ending with DKR! Sounds cool but I dunno if I'd have the stamina, and would rather see it 'properly'.
  22. The Avengers

    Fucking BUM on show all the time. *inserts that "If all the male Avengers showed their bum and Black Widow didn't image* Can't straight people just get over it? I've seen the face of that figure, it's hauntingly realistic, Scarlett Johannsson's stunning face should sell something like that, not a tiny plastic rump.
  23. The Amazing Spider-Man

    Oh I liked the 3-D a lot, it lent itself to 3-D very well. Interesting to see that. I had no complaints, it was so frenetic, and clearly designed for 3-D that yeah...thought it was great.
  24. The Amazing Spider-Man

    Just back from it, and yeah there's a very brief mid-credits scene.
