  1. Yeah, if they got outside of the gates of Mordor and then flew the ring over. It's basically NOT the same thing because it's not something they ever do in Lord of the Rings. It used to be the same because I guess they could have always done it but didn't, so the films had established that for some reason or other it couldn't happen or wouldn't work. Much like for some reason the eagles couldn't just fly Frodo over because they might have been shot down or Saurons eye was also an anti aircraft laser or something. What this film does is establish that yes, the entire 10 previous hours were pointless and they could have flown it there all along. It basically jumps the shark for the sake of a cool looking image.
  2. You know, that Yoda v Dooku fight always sticks in my mind as it's one of the few times in a British cinema (Trafford Centre fact fans) when the audience wasn't sat in total silence but was noticeably vocal about what was going on screen. And as much as some people in this thread like to believe it was negative it was very much a feeling of 'Fuck Yeah!' The more I think about it the more terrible TLJ gets. But I guess that makes it a worthy sequel to TFA. I think broadly i'm pretty forgiving and can see the best in many things and I really liked Rogue One, but Episodes 7 and 8 have just been shoddy messes of a story. For all people might complain about the politics build up Lucas spent 3 films showing how Palpatine maneuvered his way to be able to rule a galaxy spanning empire. Apparently the First Order did this by coming out of nowhere and blowing up a couple of planets using largely old Empire tech and uniforms bought off ebay. I've never been some fanatical fan of Star Wars, I always enjoyed it for the scale and spectacle, but these 2 films have just felt so small and it just feels sad that the send off many of these characters are getting is in the hands of people who's primary concern is throwing shit at the screen that they think looks cool but makes no actual sense.
  3. Avengers: Infinity War - April 2018

    I think Hawkeye is going to buy it. His wife showing up in those shots earlier. He doesn't seem to be in the trailer unless i've missed him. Him and Black Widow are the weakest and killing one would be a signal of a conflict that is just beyond them but she's tied to Banner to an extent. He's played quite a central role in both previous films. If they put everyone in an Iron Man suit would that be too Power Rangers?
  4. Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    I was going to ask if they were finecast. It really put me off wanting to finish painting mine after I had a Succubus whose weapons warped to the point I replaced the arms with plastic ones and I have a daemonic herald whose claws are a bit twisted. At least it was easier to work with than metal but i'd be wary about having them in any carry case where there is any pressure on bits that could bend like weapons. Hopefully they'll get round to replacing them with plastic.

    Elf (or Aelf these days I guess) Loremaster
  6. Tyrion turning heel at the 11th hour, considering he thinks she's the biggest murderer in Westeros and given what she thinks of him he'd be stupid to believe she'd stick to any deal they made, would be WWE levels of plotting to the extent i'd expect Ned Stark to show up in the finale, hit the Night King with a steel chair then piledrive him off the walls of Winterfell
  7. Games Workshop, An Appreciation Thread

    Been trying to get back in the swing of regular painting recently after not really doing much over the last few years so been working on some bits I've had lying around. Here is a Grave Guard with a great weapon.
  8. Marvel's Iron Fist (Netflix)

    Luke Cage asks her if she can fly in something like the 2nd or 3rd episode and she says more like jumping and falling.

    I think he looks good with the helmet on. Never really been a fan of Space Marines without them on in general though. The models have been amazing recently. Magnus, Allarielle, the new Lord of Change all look fantastic and the only thing holding me off is the possibility of a new Keeper of Secrets over the summer along with some C'thulu style Malekith or Fulgrim.
  10. Justice League

    I'd be worried that post might collapse under the weight of it's own irony.
  11. The Random WoW Thread

    Holy Paladin is so much fun now. Prancing around in melee barely ever casting a spell with a cast time and questing like prot pulling everything in range. It only really slows down when you're fighting stuff with more health like rares and eveything ends up on cooldown. Plus bodyguards can't die! No more them pulling something they shouldn't and you ending up with a 60m debuff before you can use them again, they just respawn after about 10 seconds which is nice. I'm not geared for heroics quite yet but if anyone Alliance side needs a healer for dungeons or group world quests my battle.net tag is Demios#2600

    I just had to make Demonic Empowerment a bit more visible but it's seemed fine other than that.
  13. E3 Sony - Finished

    I'd have preferred God of War or Horizon VR to RE. I don't fancy doing that much washing.
  14. E3 Bethesda - Finished

    I've had the first one sat in my steam library for ages and never got round to it but might give it a go now.
  15. E3 Bethesda - Finished

    Something really appealing about that time stuff.
