re: Spinoff: Which supergroup was most impressive considering its members? - Baloo
NWA isn't a supergroup. Though two of its members would go on to awesome solo careers, this was their first group. Besides, the best hip hop supergroup is Black Star (Talib Kweli and Mos Def). Derek and the Dominoes is sort of the go-to supergroup, just because of Allman and Clapton. OK, they had...

re: Cell phone recording at concerts - Baloo
You are right, those people are dicks. Look, you want to take one photo just to put on facebook to say you were there? Fine. Do it during the 1st or 2nd song. Take one photo, put your phone away, and we'll all pretend it didn't happen. But if you try to record the show on video for any period of...

re: Spinoff: who would you like to see as the new James Bond? - Baloo
Either Hiddleston or Elba. The only drawback to Hiddleston is that we'd miss out on him being a villain in every other movie ever made. Fassbender is way too big of a star. My dark horse? Dan Stevens. He pulled off the fake aristocratic thing in Downton Abbey, and he's pretty young. He'd also be ...

re: Spielberg: "There Will be a time when Superhero movie go the way of the Western" - Baloo
I'd also like to take this moment to say that I really miss westerns. What a great genre, and quintessentially American. Instead of getting rid of superheroes, how about we bring back westerns? ...

re: Spielberg: "There Will be a time when Superhero movie go the way of the Western" - Baloo
Last year, 33 movies made $100 million, the old benchmark for a smash hit. 67 movies made $50 million, the standard for at least a modest hit (a single, not a home run). If you think there were 67 superhero films made last year, you're deluded. Heck, let's look at some of the $100 million films ...

I had to be restrained from kicking in my TV when the Ravens drafted Kyle Boller... after they traded up to get him. Also, Akili Smith just screamed "I am a bust". ...

re: Marvel Secret Wars: Upcoming Changes, MCU and All That - Baloo
I think well-defined "seasons" have helped smaller characters even if they only get a short run. I keep going back to Warren Ellis on Moon Knight but... Jesus. It was awesome. It also is contained in 2 trade paperbacks and requires literally zero knowledge of the rest of the Marvel Universe. It's pe...

re: An introduction to Bob Dylan - Baloo
Hmmm... he has such a huge catalog, but I'd start with: Freewheelin' Bob Dylan: classic folkie Dylan. Bringing It All Back Home: Dylan plugs in Blood On the Tracks: middle period, probably his best Modern Times: late period Dylan...

re: Anyone concerned about Kevin Steele's history as a (head) coach? - Baloo
Will Muschamp failed at Florida.... FLORIDA. He guided the Gators to their first losing season since 1979. And there's not one person who wouldn't want him as their team's DC. I think a co-ordinator's record as a head coach is irrelevant. It just means they were a bad head coach. ...

re: Marvel Secret Wars: Upcoming Changes, MCU and All That - Baloo
That Squadron Supreme cover is just such a contrast to the limited series. Seriously, if you have any interest in comics history and you've never read it, you absolutely need to read Gruenwald's Squadron Supreme. It really is a proto-Watchmen. It's an interesting concept: heroes get tired of bei...

re: Current Rock Bands - Baloo
There's plenty of good rock being made today, as this thread attests. However, what rock is reaping is the misguided strategy of continually propping up the Baby Boomers as the only true rock bands, and defining the genre as such. Well, those bands are dead or dying, and young kids understandably wa...

re: Marvel Secret Wars: Upcoming Changes, MCU and All That - Baloo
I felt Bucky as Cap was more about Steve Rogers anyway. Rogers knew that was the thing Bucky needed, so he gave it to him, even from beyond the grave. Bucky being Cap was still a Steve Rogers story, if that makes sense. Sam, OTOH, has been Cap's closest ally for the past 20-30 years. He's the one...

[quote]is there anything you dont seem excited for? [/quote] Well, it's 15 of 50 books I plan on reading, so no... it's not everything. I think X-Men has run its course for me. I'm pretty much done with them. I don't care about the Spidey-Verse (Jessica Drew predates that). I can hardly stand Deadp...

re: Marvel Secret Wars: Upcoming Changes, MCU and All That - Baloo
It's all the illusion of change. At the end of the day, the Avengers are Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the X-men are the ragged "hated" underdogs, and Captain America is all that's good about us. And so on. I do think Marvel is trying to give some of their smaller characters are a bigger stage (and ...

re: Marvel Secret Wars: Upcoming Changes, MCU and All That - Baloo
I think they are doing a good job of introducing more diversity while also keeping the old school fans happy. You can do both, which I think everyone forgets. You can have "edgy" violent books and funny, quirky books. You can appeal to both girls and boys. It's always been a false choice. Also, t...

[quote]If there were other black guys linked to the role, I could see how people would think that they are just looking for a black guy, but Elba is the only one I've seen, and I'm sure he could pull off Bond very well.[/quote] This is my take as well. I don't think it's a search for a "black Bon...
