re: New Batman v Superman Trailer - Baloo
[quote]I never say this, but the action scenes are the most important part of this movie to me. I will forgive A LOT if I get to see some breathtaking fights with Batman and Superman and Superman and Doomsday, and I think it will deliver. I've been waiting for those scenes my entire life.[/quote] ...

re: New Batman v Superman Trailer - Baloo
[quote]Chris Terrio wrote this film.[/quote] I'm sure the screenwriter with almost no credits to his name had a blank check to do whatever he wanted with no studio interference. This is clearly Snyder's baby, he is the most powerful voice in shaping the DC film universe. ...

re: New Batman v Superman Trailer - Baloo
The first half of the trailer is really good. That's some serious Batman ass-kicking going on, and come on... Jeremy Irons! And, then... there's the rest of the trailer, which is still completely unappealing to me. Batman's rant about Superman essentially is a villain's soliloquy, and then there...

re: IYO what is the greatest story ever told? - Baloo
I'm gonna be unpopular and say the Odyssey isn't that great of a story. For such a long journey home, most of it is spent in one place, with him playing house with a nymph. I mean, good for Odysseus, but that's hardly epic. I like the IDEA of the Odyssey, but the story itself sags in the middle. ...

re: Remember the Butthole Surfers - Baloo
The Butthole Surfers chapter in Our Band Could Be Your Life is perhaps the funniest thing I have ever read. Some people talk the talk, but Gibby Haynes were certifiably insane in a band filled with whacked out weirdos. it's a shame most people only know them for Pepper, but that's sort of the sa...

re: Puckheads Unite! Season Long NHL Thread - Baloo
Real good. The Bolts are legit. Despite the record, I still think they are the second best team in the Eastern Conference. Just got to start playing like it. ...

re: Puckheads Unite! Season Long NHL Thread - Baloo
Once you clear out all of the players who aren't gonna be playing in the NHL next year, it's essentially Phaneuf for a 2nd round pick. So, for the Leafs, the motive is simply, they cleared out $7 million with which to sign a free agent. I'm sure they have not noticed that Steven Stamkos is unsigned ...

re: T.O doesn't make the HOF - Baloo
Owens never led the league in receptions or receiving yards. Not once. In fact, he was top 5 in catches only twice (never higher than 4th) and top 5 in yards only three times (highest was 3rd). He also was a tremendous pain in the ass, which likely had a negative effect on the teams he played fo...

re: Birdman - Baloo
It's actually a condemnation of Hollywood for making soulless superhero films which have no cultural "importance". What this movie does is jack off Broadway and "The Theater", which is playing off of Hollywood's massive insecurities. ...

re: Bands With Most Underrated Drummers - Baloo
Bill Stevenson was the drummer for Black Flag (well, for a time, but in their most prolific period), the Descendants, and All. He was a key member in two of the greatest hardcore bands of all time, and All is pretty great as well, though not quite as elite. He's also one of the biggest producers in ...

re: Puckheads Unite! Season Long NHL Thread - Baloo
I'm pissed at the Isles on general principle. And not for repeatedly elbowing Tom Wilson in the head. I get that, and I like the fact that Tom Wilson doesn't just reside in the Isles' head space, he's looking at school districts there. The Isles' complete obsession with Wilson fills my heart with gl...

Hey, look who came out of his two months of hiding! I didn't write the Pens off, to quote me when the Pens fired their coach, [quote]They've played like horse manure most of the year, but they still aren't that far out of a playoff spot if they get their stuff together.[/quote] And then I...

re: Does anybody else not care for all the superhero movies and TV shows? - Baloo
I do wish they would make a deeper dive into some of the more unique corners of the comic book universe. I think we could have an awesome Lazarus or Nowhere Men film, and people wouldn't even know its a "comic book movie". Something like Ed Brubaker's spy stuff (like Incognito or Fatale) would be re...

re: Everybody's a Critic: Or How to Define the M/TV Board - AO Scott, NYTimes - Baloo
I do think groupthink and backlashes happen. It would be silly to argue otherwise. And sometimes, people just like being contrarian. That said, I feel that most of the major voices on this board are secure enough in their opinions that they usually don't try and put up a falase front. Most opinions,...
