Okay, who knows when Steve crashed into the ice, like year-wise? We’re talking MCU.
Seemed to me like it was only a few months after he rescued Bucky and the Howling Commandos, and that was, what, 1943?
In the comics it was 1945, shortly before the death of Hitler. But in the movie it didn’t look like the war was anywhere close to over.
Imagine your icon giving you a special hug.
Anonymous asked: it's funny like i get that nebula is not a good guy and all that but idk i really appreciate that that a girl's getting the draco in leather pants treatment y'know
like ok for all of guardians of the galaxy’s flaws…it is interesting to see what happens when like, the normal things fandom latches onto are removed. like you’ve got a completely irredeemable villain in ronan, so I guess people are trying to make nebula the new loki. and there’s no white boy to ship peter with, so you’ve got fandom latching onto rocket/groot????? instead of a million new urls based on peter like you had with clint and bucky, there’s just a bunch of groot urls. it’s all very fascinating.
Fandom will find a way. Somebody will decide Starlord is this movie’s Loki, and then somebody will find John C. Reilly’s yearbook photos. And then this movie will be reinterpreted as the lauchpad for the “Quill seduces teen!Rhomann” headcanon.
Review: Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie
Recently I explained how Transformers: The Movie (1986) forever shaped my perception of taking a thing and tacking colon-The-Movie to the end of it. James Rolfe, the creator of the Angry Video Game Nerd, is as big a fan of that film as I am. So I had a feeling that he knew the standards he was setting when he named this project. I was not disappointed.
Let’s be clear: Transformers: The Movie is not the best movie of all time, or even necessarily my favorite movie of all time. Neither is AVGN: The Movie. The point is, they both take the source material and turn the dial up to 11. Of course, AVGN is a series of 15-minute YouTube videos about a guy yelling at old Nintendo cartridges, so “up to 11” is all relative. But as long as you take it on those terms, it’s a success.
mattdic asked: Do you think that the initial Thunderbolts concept would work better as a movie or a TV show?
I don’t know that it would work great as either, as it’s so tied into the history of the Marvel Universe. Having the Thunderbolts revealed to be villains that you never heard of before doesn’t have quite teh same impact.
It depends on how direct an adaptation we’re talking about.
Literally adapting Thunderbolts #1-12 (as a movie or TV series) would be a massive undertaking. You’d have to introduce six supervillains, establish them as the Masters of Evil, and then “kill” the Avengers just to get started.
However, I don’t think any of that is necessary to get at the core concept of the storyline. What matters is that the Thunderbolts are pretending to be superheroes to achieve world domination. I think that concept can resonate with people even without the “omg Citizen V is Baron Zemo!” moment. I don’t have to already know who Baron Zemo is to think he’s a dick, or that his plan is frighteningly brilliant.
I think Thunderbolts #1 had to play up all that Marvel history, to get people in 1997 to give it a second look. But that doesn’t seem to be an issue for moviegoers today. The backstory might enhance a T-bolts movie (in the same way that an Adam Warlock or Annihilation movie might have been used to set up Guardians of the Galaxy) but it’s not essential to the experience.
that did inspire me to finally look up that issue (the tea house one) and now i’m reading it and i’m so angry they gave karla internal monologue in that issue, like, how dareyou put thoughts in my favorite character’s head to make daken look ~mysterious and irresistible~
this is, i swear to god this is like psychological fridging or some shit
i am livid
I was having a really bad day and then I read this post and I was like
