    January 21, 2018 7:19 pm A lull? Aquaman is maybe the best super hero comic being published right now. Metal is super weird but very compelling. Superman is the best in years. It's not perfect but a lull just seems wrong.
    January 14, 2018 11:49 am It feels like Tom King is going back through old cell phones and mining past relationships for his books. Josh seems like he's almost where I am and have been for a while. I am at the point where it's wearing on me. The writing talent is there- the formula is tired. I want a touch of 'real world' emotional elements with my superheoes but I much prefer that expressed more in metaphor than an episode of a better written cbs drama.
    January 8, 2018 7:20 am That's a lot of questions man. and not quick ones either.
    December 31, 2017 10:11 am When you kill Admiral Akbar off screen you are purposefully giddy about saying FU to fans. The kind of stunts as to say- watch this people are going to hate it but How bold am I? That's anathema to organic story telling it's ego stroking and that kind of person may make some right moves along the way in their movie but is ultimately coming from a place that is far removed of the immersive story telling needed to tell any kind of convincing story in this or any other storied universe like Star Wars. Not to mention the disjointed cuts and scenes - the casino sequence- Reys 2 min Jedi 'training'?? Basic- basic jobs of a 'director' are let down here - it is not a well made movie in the craft of movie making. I get the sense Johnson Is capable of this but was just preoccupied by all the self gratification he was stroking it with the Eff-off bombs sprinkled throughout. No matter what fan you are- where you're coming from new or old fan approach, it's clear to see that this director is- a little bitch.
    December 17, 2017 8:12 pm Romo's summation of Discovery was both diplomatic and quite on point.
    December 1, 2017 12:29 pm Have there been other Marvel Netflix shows that weren't covered on iFanboy?
    November 21, 2017 6:54 am Yeah thanks @andyb, I know it's not 1985. And why 1985 of all years? This is is exactly what I mean some people seem more excited to make a pithy comment than to focus on a systemic issue while acknowledging that they aren't connected enough to know anything truly about it. Take this seriously absolutely. Realize you don't know what happened and from your perspective this is the telephone game- probably a smart idea. Newsarama reporting on re-tweets isn't enough. Does it seem like Ron might not have been an ok dude to work with sometimes- maybe. It does seem like there are enough people saying that. Specific predatory behaviour against women? I'm not finding it, hence my HR comment. I think ChinBo37 summed up pretty well what seems to be out there and I think his approach is sensible.
    November 20, 2017 6:24 pm "I googled the stuff..." Well it sounds like you're an expert. Unless you know someone personally involved let's remember that we probably shouldn't pass final judgement on anyone based on accusations and allegations. I did some googling too and what I found sounded more like someone who needs a visit to HR but who knows, the point being most of us on this side of it won't know.
    November 14, 2017 11:32 am Not everyone follows the guys on social media if you just go by the podcast Ron specifically said it wasn't like when he worked at Image so one could imagine from that that it wasn't a similar conflict of interest. I wasn't implying that Ron didn't have a job before, just that lots of podcasters do and podcast as well. If it is a similar position to working in the industry again- that makes sense but it isn't what Ron himself said in his announcement here on the podcast.
