Yeah, I know what Easter is and its origins and all that.
The thing I'm wondering is why the change of terminology? I'm fairly old. I don't ever remember seeing anyone call Easter "Resurrection Day," before now. And now I see it in multiple places all of a sudden.
Sure, this is the day we c...

I really liked this show.
But I can understand why they dropped it. It really wasn't making much of an impact audience-wise.
But was it funny? Yeah, it was.
Did you care about the characters? Yep. If you didn't, then nothing would have seemed awkward.
Sad to see it done.

I actually do see the point of Wolverine being limited as the center of the film.
But what's done is done regarding that.
I think I would like to see the following things in an X-Men movie:
1. Less is more. Fewer mutants with more screen time to explore them beyond their powers.

Why wouldn't he be? He's the most recognizable (movie universe) X-Man to the masses.
I know it's Kitty who goes back in the comics, but would you hang your summer tentpole extravaganza on the shoulders of Ellen Page?

Of course it's wrong to ban cyclists from public roads, but cyclists need to do a better job of educating/policing themselves when it comes to riding on busy roads.

For me, I try to look at the original spirit of the characters.
I wouldn't expect that when Golden Age/Silver Age Flash was created that the idea was to create a god-level avatar of a cosmic reality-altering force. It was to create someone who was super-fast because he got around some chemicals ...

Joffery's death leaves a hole in the show, for sure. The one thing that unites everyone is a common enemy.
It will be interesting to see who steps up to take the role of public enemy #1 in the eyes of the audience.

As much as I enjoy the Flash, I just can't see him representing us as our go-to balls-to-the wall, we're-in-big-fricking-trouble superhero.
That's Thor's job.
Lightning and hammering and shite.

I'm not sure of the Death of Captain America storyline would play well with the movie audience.

So many people have been acting like babies over how the show ended.

Secondly, what was so bad about the ending, really? Ted met Tracy. He was happy with her. They had ...
