    James Gunn fired for old paedo jokes

    This topic has changed focus over the last page but it speaks to the problem facing Disney with all this success/ My wife and I watched the new Avengers tonight (I know late to the party) and where left a little....underwhelmed? Disoriented? Exhausted? First of all the the bits with the Guardians of the Galaxy in it were great, possibly better than GOTG2 and there's a lesson in that. Maybe less James Gunn is better, or at least a James Gunn where he's colaborating with other writers. But the rest of the movie. It was just exhausting. It's not bad, it was mostly good but it was just. too. much. to take in one sitting. There didn't seem to be a quiet moment in the last hour, and this was the same problem with civil war. Too many characters. Too many story arcs. Just too much for a movie. And to understand it you had to have done an awful lot of homework (thank god we decided to watch Dr Strange on a whim, something we were going to pass on originally.) You can't compare it with the crap we endured back in the 80's but it's like having a five course meal made up of your favourite desert. Sure, things seem great in the beginning but by the end you feel stuffed and gross. It's very much like what happened with the Telltale adventure games where their output led to fatigue and a situation where they ended up competing with themselves.

    IGN writer busted copying other people's reviews

    I'm going to guess he got a reputation for churning out lots of content incredibly quickly. Of course this sort of plagerism in the age of google is pretty easy to pick up, although it's the first time I've heard of someone allegedly copying from video. Back in the pre-internet days one of the most prolific computer / travel writers (and eventually editor of three sections) down here got busted for plagerism once a reader worked out that the only way anyone could make that sort of word count is if they were typing almost every waking minute of the day (leaving no time for research and review). A good manager / team leader / editor will look into what's happening when a staff member is under performing. A great one will look into what's happening when a staff member is over performing. Because it's the one time you don't check that bites you.

    Sumo Digital acquire The Chinese Room

    Yeah but then someone at the back gets The Signal powerup and all of a sudden your racer is bleeding from the nose.

    To be fair Disney know that they aren't going to have any luck increasing copyright terms for another 20 years which is why they've spent so much money buying other properties created in the 60's / 70's.

    Almost forgotton superheroes of the 70's and 80's

    I still have fond memories of this one. Probably doesn't count as almost forgotten and it got away with lame special effects by leaning heavily into that.

    You need to add the titles... ...on second thought...that song is going to be in my head all day now.

    Automan is like budget Tron, even the them tune is ultra generic. (Also, cursor is a bit of a creep?)

    All I can remember from watching this as a kid was the amazingly fake paw.

    Also this...possibly one of the reasons Captain Marvel has been mothballed for all these years.

    However it did remind me of this from my childhood, a show that will probably never be replayed now due to the name of the heroine.
  13. Over in the Thor:Raganor thread posters were discussing if GotG2 was disappointing or not when @neoELITE said And this reminded me of TV superheroes almost long forgotten from the 70's and 80's. Let's start with Condor Man. He's....not that great is he....
