December 22, 2019 6:49 pm Enjoyed listening to your iFanboy podcast review, but it's just because I love listening to you guys :) I'm not seeing this movie, like I haven't seen "Solo" or "The Mandalorian." I've loved Star Wars since '77, even embraced "The Force Awakens" a few years back. But "The Last Jedi" extinguished any connection I felt to Disney's version of Star Wars. Just took something I had so much fun with my whole life and strangled it. Now the idea of new Star Wars makes me nauseous.
November 30, 2019 5:40 pm The iFanboy Braintrust perfectly expressed my own feelings about this animated “Hush” adaptation, it was indeed a mess. Frankly, I found Paul’s sudden discovery of the two Peyton Lists more interesting. Also, for the first time, I was annoyed by the rampant curse words included into the script of this one. Just took me out of it. Could that be what killed Conor’s poor blu-ray player
November 30, 2019 5:33 pm Thank heavens! :) And thank you, @CashWho. I was not a fan of that “For Tomorrow” arc
October 10, 2019 4:17 am I fully understand and agree that movies like this are not for everyone. Lots of people, maybe even most, simply would prefer to avoid spending time thinking about uglier truths of our society and humanity. Also, too, lots of comic book film fans only want certain types of (safer, conventionally entertaining) stories from their moviegoing fare. I am neither of those people. I thought JOKER was brilliant - this film is true art. And Joaquin Phoenix's performance is one of the best I have ever seen in movies, period; I could not take my eyes off him for two hours, I was mesmerized and horrified, and in sheer awe of his talent. Do I want all comic book movies to be like this? Oh God no! Lol But I do love that Warner Brothers has the balls to produce a variety of different types of films within this genre. Now I am even more excited for Birds of Prey, Suicide Squad 2 and Wonder Woman '84 - let alone for Matt Reeves' Batman films and Ava DuVernay's New Gods :D
August 5, 2019 6:51 pm Great job, Ryan and Jim, for keeping the iFanboy light burning! I especially appreciated that you both happened to be on hand for that question about variants, was real interesting to hear about that via your specific experiences in retail comics selling and also publishing. I still miss Conor and Josh, though, and I hope their normal lives are okay.
July 17, 2019 2:35 pm That's what I was thinking, Ron's bell!
June 21, 2019 8:10 pm I agree with everyone, it was a terrific interview, Josh. I was especially intrigued by King's explanation of how the recent "Knightmare" issues came to be. While I wasn't a fan of them, my criticism is now reined in somewhat upon learning that a lot of it was simply King trying to get people paid; it was navigating his employers' insane schedules, and his artists' workload capabilities - plus his own time constraints - to present the best possible comics he could think of within that framework. It was an(other) important reminder of how much of what we read from week to week is determined by things other than the two big names on each issue's cover.
June 18, 2019 8:42 pm Agreed, I just thought it was a hint as to how Lois et al were able to infiltrate that high-security facility. That she was somehow able to see/recreate Talia's appearance (and man, what a big leap that is lol) to get them in.
June 5, 2019 5:21 pm 2.) Agreed. And Darwyn Cooke :]
May 15, 2019 12:27 am I'd just figured that Jessica's GL origin was a bit extra to fit in with the flow of this movie. Having to explain about the Crime Syndicate, and how Power Ring's power ring fed off Jessica's fears etc. would've taken too much time to unpack. I agree with Conor/Paul on this movie. Didn't think it was terrific (but am glad Ryan did!) but didn't think it was bad either. It was fine. But while watching it, and seeing how much of Geoff Johns was in this - and with me being so hot and cold on DC Comics' current status - it made me worry that DC is really missing Johns' guidance and inspiration these days.
