re: Geoff Johns confirmed new president and CCO of DCE - Baloo
Geoff Johns is the best writer in the DC stable. His runs on Green Lantern and JLA are both legendary, and the gold standard for mainstream comic books. This is an excellent decision, and right up there with Marvel leaning heavily on Bendis for their MCU. It helps to have a company guy who is also a...

re: Can somebody explain Bojack Horseman to me? - Baloo
Man, I DID love Ugly Americans. But that show was funny as all hell. And it was just so mean to everyone and everything. It was gloriously cynical, and it just revelled in pushing your buttons. Ugly Americans was made by merry pranksters, BoJack by morose emo kids. Ugly Americans found is own nih...

re: Comic Con - New Wonder Woman, Justice League, and Suicide Squad Trailers - Baloo
Someone smiled in the Justice League trailer! There was actual mirth! That was outstanding, and a great course correction. It doesn't need to be all silly all the time, but having a light Barry Allen helps the tone quite a bit. Wonder Woman looks amazing. She pops off of the screen against the do...

re: Collider Article - Chris Nolans Films Ranked from Worst to Best - Baloo
That's sort of the definition of overrated. The critical consensus on those three films is that they are excellent, and maybe among the very best films ever. If you do not believe this to be the case, they are, by definition, overrated. I think he's wrong to call them overrated, but the logic ho...

re: Can somebody explain Bojack Horseman to me? - Baloo
Well, the show Vice Principles is encouraging us to laugh AT the main characters. It's not my favorite show on earth, but it's not aiming for pathos, it's just aiming for laughs. If they ever became self-aware, the show would be relentlessly depressing. Bojack starts as self-aware, so it starts ...

re: Can somebody explain Bojack Horseman to me? - Baloo
Just because it's accurate doesn't mean it's interesting. I think Hollywood way overrates our level of interest in their own inside baseball navel gazing. My problem with Bojack is that it wants me to spend time with these characters who all hate themselves. Why the hell would I want to do that?...

re: Collider Article - Chris Nolans Films Ranked from Worst to Best - Baloo
I try and delete it when people do it. It's illegal and could get the site in big trouble. Don't do it. Fair use allows a teaser, but the whole article is ridiculous. The web lives off of clicks. ...

re: Stranger Things: Season 1 ****SPOILERS**** Discussion Thread - Baloo
[quote]Kinda agree because that's something that only a person like Baloo would pick up on [/quote] I did preface it that it was a nitpick. And the only reason I bring it up is because every other reference was so perfect. This is a show in which one kid tells his friends he will not lend them hi...

re: Apollo 13 vs Gravity vs The Martian - Baloo
Apollo 13. Ed Harris rules, and I found the mission control scenes to be the strength of the movie. The Martian. Hard premise to execute, and I loved the internal politics of NASA. While tonally opposite from Harris, I love Daniels' performance. Gravity. It's pretty, but empty. There's no real...

re: Say 1 positive thing about each Star Wars prequel - Baloo
1 has lots of good stuff. Darth Maul, the Duel of the Fates, and the podrace are all great elements. 2... God, it's horrible. Ummm... John Williams always brings it. So, the music. 3 has some decent acting from Ewan McGregor, holding the whole ridiculous plot and lack of characterization toget...

re: What are the best Pink Floyd albums? - Baloo
I love Piper at the gates of Dawn. it's probably the Floyd album I listen to the most (Dark Side is the only other contender). Though I would say its practically a different band. Non-Syd? Probably Momentary Lapse of Reason. It's not a great album, but it's pleasant. ...

re: Why do people and music media try claim that Devo were - Baloo
I'm a big fan of Devo, and rank their cover of Satisfaction as one of the greatest cover songs ever, but they are widely considered a one-hit wonder because they only had one hit. It's a lot like Dexy's Midnight Runners, who were an incredibly influential act, but known to most as the Come On Eileen...

re: Modest Mouse/Brand New - Baloo
I'm not going to show precisely because Brand New is playing. I could deal with them as an opener, but co-headlining? It's not worth seeing Modest Mouse at a terrible venue for a shortened set with a terrible band. Oh, and Modest Mouse was f'n awesome. The new album is pretty meh, but that in no ...

re: Anyone else VERY disappointed in "The Ringer"? - Baloo
Hyden was by far their best music critic. I'll never forget when they were having their best song tournament, and it was the indie rock guy formerly from the Onion who was the only one who would defend Hey Ya! for being generally awesome precisely because every different kind of person likes it (peo...

re: Anyone else VERY disappointed in "The Ringer"? - Baloo
See, that's a totally ridiculous and unpersuasive argument... but at least there was a shred of evidence. I mean, it's morally revolting and never should have been written, much less published, but it's STILL more interesting than what's on The Ringer. And that's the problem with the Ringer... it...

re: Anyone else VERY disappointed in "The Ringer"? - Baloo
I tend to agree with the Ringer's politics, but the site is still generally awful because the articles are amateurish, short, and not terribly well-reasoned. I'll leave the Alton Sterling one alone, because at least that tried to humanize the victim of a national news story. There was an identifiabl...
