I liked it. It's way over-the-top but that's how it's supposed to be, plus it's from a comic I believe. It's almost Tarrintino-ish with the overtopness but it definitely delivered. I was surprised by how good Firth was in the action scenes.
I agree it got a bit boring in the book but I think on the screen it could be really interesting and a nice change of pace. I also thought Victarion and all that (ships, etc) would have a large part of the story to where the show would HAVE to show it.
I would post. I wish we had a wrestling sub forum.
My favorite wrestler of all time is Shawn Michaels. His in ring ability was probably one of the best ever. I rate wrestlers on their in ring ability and move set more than their charisma, character, or personality.
That's why I could see someone liking Ambrose, but I'm not a big fan. It's the same reason that U like Cesaro but hate Tyson Kidd.
I'd post too.
I think you have to bundle all the skills up, neither can be too bad. Ambrose has a good mix of it all, imo.
While I don't always agree with Madhatter, and frankly sometimes he's way over the top for my taste, the comments in this thread are across the line imo... as usual Cantrell takes poo to the Nth degree and I can't really ever tell if he's kind of trolling, or just being the complete dumbass that he is and truly sees life as he comes across in posts.
The master of the black-and-white Cantrell can't differentiate between someone making one mistake and someone constantly making poor choices in life. Big surprise there.
Of course I may as well bang my head against the wall as opposed to trying to explain that differentiation for all the good it would do.
Maybe if someone banged Cantrell's head against a wall it would help.
Yeah he takes it a bit far, but MH brings it upon himself by launching personal attack after personal attack on people all the time, even people that have never used such attacks against him. It's confusing that someone so "smart" cannot express himself without using insults or attacks.
Jesus is lampooned around the world, in newpapers, cartoons, TV shows, etc. Our government even pays for "art" which desecrates Christianity, and still, if some moron were to shoot someone, by an large, the whole Christian church would condemn the shooting.
The reason you have to put yourself in their place, is because you can't find a bunch of gun toting Christians out there killing people who disagree with them. They get snarky as hell, but they don't normally cut off peoples heads, shoot them, etc.
Guess you can go back a thousand years though as far as putting yourself in their place.
You still didn't describe the scenario I was saying, but that's OK.
And.... can't find a bunch of gun toting Christians out there killing people who disagree with them?
That's America for the past 50 years, minus yes the decapitations.
Same here. It almost appeared like a Saturday morning cartoon (not in the good way). They should've gone with Namor. Ant-Man never interested me.
They can't do Namor. There is something weird with their rights to that character that are still unresolved, when it comes to stuff like movies and games.
People thought Guardians would fail as well because only comic followers really knew about them, but that hit it out of the park. I have faith, but we'll see. The action seems kind of cool in my opinion.
I'll admit I'm not super excited though, I think Strange/Ms. Marvel/Black Panther would be better, and a bunch of others. They really took away one of Ant-Man (Pym)'s biggest plot-lines by having Stark create Ultron in the movie and not him (like in the comis).
