My one quibble, also applicable to Transformers, but why do robots need such expressive articulated faces?

 

I mean really, Ultron's delicate eyebrows are too much (compared to the essentially unmoving face of comic book Ultron). Little fiddly bits of moving machinery everywhere is quite inefficient.

That is an interesting point. It is something I hadn't considered even though I was just watching the second Metallo episode of animated Superman last night and was commenting on how I like how unexpressive his metal skull face was. It made him just a touch more creepy.

Avengers 2

Can I assume we've all seen this by now?

Can I assume we are all going to go see this now?

 

 

Nope.

 

Also nope.

 

I watched all the films leading up to the Avengers, went to the theatre for the Avengers (a rare amount of effort for me, I was so excited), haven't watched any Marvel products since and don't plan to anytime soon. 

 

Or ever.

? :huh:  Really? I've pretty much varying degrees of loved everything so far. You liked eveything leading up to it, but that one movie caused you to hate it all forever? What about Avengers turned you off to such a degree?  You haven't seen Guardians of the Galaxy?

Joss Whedon.  His fingerprints were all over The Avengers, and I don't like what he makes.  Except maybe the first Toy Story, because he apparently wrote that.  So I guess everybody gets one.

 

Since the success of the movie only increased his influence in the whole, I can only presume I will enjoy the rest just as much as I did The Avengers.  Since this makes it highly likely I will not, I figure it's better to just stay away from the works instead of slowly morphing into a raging internet nerdrant troll.  It's better for me, it's better for the people who might like them, its just better for everybody.

I may not fully understand the dislike for Whedon, but I accept that it can happen.

 

That reminds me, since this *is* a Joss Whedon movie...

 

Which likable character will get killed this time?

Ok. I can get that I guess. I don't mind Whedon so much. I enjoyed Firefly and Buffy but haven't seen much else (other than the Avengers obviously) I'm not sure how much his influence has been felt by the MCU. It has certainly taken a darker turn, with Iron Man 3 and Captain America: Winter Soldier. Guardians Departs from that darkness quite a bit but Avengers 2 seems to bring us back in that direction. Is darker stories a Whedon thing? The only thing I thought he was known for was snappy comebacks and those were already in the prevoius movies.

 

@Crankydog. Oh yeah that. I think Whedon might have a problem right now. All the remaing likable characters are wearing their "contracted to other movies" armor

As deep as my Whedon dislike is, it's nothing compared to how I feel about J.J. Abrams.  This essentially makes Star Wars VII off-limits for me, too.  Although I'm torn on that, because Lawrence Kasdan is writing it... and I do enjoy his work a great deal. 

 

I figure I'll probably avoid it anyway, because loving half of it and hating half of it will only leave me miserable and confused.

      Kickstarter for a Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers inspired movie, "Netflix-y" in production value and style. Jason David Frank is headlining, and we all know that the Green Ranger/White Ranger is the best Ranger. Figured there's a good chance that there's some MMPR fans in the Reaper community, wanted to get the word out.

      What are heroes without villains to oppose them? Less exciting, that's what! So here is Crosswire, an incredibly jacked brute powered by canisters of some sinister Brute Juice! He doesn't map directly on to any character I know, but combines elements of Bane, Mr. Hyde, some members of the Wrecking Crew, the Rhino, and (due to Drug Powers) maybe the bad robocop from Robocop 2. 
      I tried to get some minor OSL coming off the Brute Juice canisters and drybrush his many bulgy veins Alien Goo green. He's a very big fellow, in the same weight class as the Clay Golem. (see http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/82054-77170-clay-golem-conversion-plus-59009-female-mad-scientist/ ) Lots and lots of muscles to highlight and wash. 



      But what we all came here for is of course some wreckage and mayhem!

      About
      VERSION FRANCAISE
       COMMANDO NINJA is an 80's action comedy, tribute to the Action Hero Movies, written and directed by Benjamin Combes.
      The story follows a Vietnam Green Beret Vet, Half Commando, Half Ninja, whose daughter has been abducted by a secret Ninja Organization, led by a Central-American dictator, who wants to create a new-world order... through time...
      Follow Commando Ninja on: FACEBOOK
      When I started this project over a year and a half ago, I was driven by a strong love for the 80s (This is David Sandbergs line but I can't say better). 
      I watched again all Schwarzenegger, Stallone, Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Steven Seagal, Dolph Lundgren movies; wrote my script, took $5000 of my own money and just started shooting whenever my friends and I had time!
      We have now enough material to create a 45 minute long film!
       Commando Ninja takes place in a variety of exotic locations:
      1980s Los Angeles, Canada mountains, Vietnam War, Central-America, Post-Apocalypse... 
      John will live an adventure through many places ... and times  Everything was shot on real sets, with practical VFX, as they did in the 80's! There is absolutely no way we shoot something on a green screen!
         The soundtrack of the movie will feature famous Synthwave artists like Cobra Copter, Flash Arnold and OGRE.
      The original soundtrack has been composed by a great music composer, Thomas Cappeau, and is by itself a love letter to the 80's action movie soundtracks :
         
         Other famous artists from the 80's revival wave joined the project, among them :
       - Blood+Chrome made the Commando Ninja animated logo

Genuinely impressed by his sword wielding abilities they want Theo involved in their latest heist! But what does Theo want?
