    I second the Arkham games. Arkham Knight, especially gets super detailed with costumes. The new Spider-Man games are a good example, too, which seem to take inspiration from the Arkham games in terms of gameplay.

    Money. And what he believes to be a shot at redemption after his take on the Joker was almost universally panned by critics and audiences alike. I have pretty much zero hope that it'll be any better than it was in Suicide Squad.

    I get the graphics side of the argument but that only goes so far when you recall that Jared Leto is a real person and this is (ostensibly) live-action so the only thing left is the writing. Last I checked this isn't an Amy Henning joint but instead *checks notes* Zack Snyder and Chris Terrio. Which, sure, he had a hand in Argo but then went on to BvS and Rise of Skywalker.



    like, that's all well and good but the replies...lol

    I personally enjoyed BvS (although, I maintain that the Ultimate Cut is the definitive version as it ties together a lot of the loose ends that Warner Brothers decided to cut from the theatrical version). I've read that there is only five minutes worth of additional footage for Justice League, so who knows... maybe this won't make a difference. I'm still interested in giving it a shot, though, because I wasn't fond of how the movie turned out.

    Regarding the "maybe 4/5 minutes of additional footage," he was referring to brand new footage that was shot this year after they announced the Snyder Cut would be released on HBO. There's still likely a lot of footage that he had originally shot that wound up on the cutting room floor when Joss Whedon took over directing duties in the wake of Zack's family tragedy.

    He claims to be using 0% of the Joss Whedon re-shoot footage, which fortunately means no more CGI'd Henry Cavill upper lip. For the record, I didn't hate BvS either, but I also didn't love it; it was mostly just okay. Justice League was a little better, but still kind of a CGI mess and Steppenwolf sucked as a villain. I'll check the Snyder Cut out when it's released, but I can't imagine it'll make a world of difference. We shall see...

    favorite thing I saw was a pic of Sonic getting dinged and bouncing off Steppenwolf's sharp pointiness, and with Sonic rings falling everywhere as a result.

    In this IGN article, Zack Snyder says that the Snyder Cut of Justice League "it is probably a solid two-and-a-half hours of unseen footage in this movie, I would imagine."

    I'm excited that Wonder Woman 1984 is going to be on HBO Max on Christmas Day. But how in the fuck has HBO Max been out for six months and doesn't have 4K HDR yet? It would definitely make the viewing experience much more enjoyable.

    I'm excited too bc that movie looks like it has a very high chance of being utter shit so I'm glad I don't have to spend anything extra to judge for myself. And for the record I liked the first one (except for that final fight scene....ooooofah) and would love to be wrong about 1984.

    My thoughts exactly on both counts. Theyre absolutely NAILING the sound design on Mandalorian. That chase scene with the TIE fighters was perfection. Made me wish they'd make a Mandalorian movie with a bigger story and larger scope (but not insanely big like TROS).

    HBO really has half assed the launch of HBO Max. It literally only just arrived on Amazon Fire devices. Since I already pay $15 per month for HBO as a Prime channel, Max is included. The HBO app updated to the Max app. Also the Max original lineup is a tad lacking at the moment. And the no 4K thing is just stupid. It would even be nice to just see some of the older HBO series in 4K. I would love to watch Carnivále in 4K.

    was carnivale filmed (and its vfx rendered) in such a way that it could even be presented in 4K? if so, that'd be AMAZING. but given that they didn't even want to cough up the money for a third season, i doubt they'd be willing to invest in what it would take to prepare it as such.

    I'm not sure. It looks great in 1080p. It only got a DVD release, so streaming is the only way to watch it in 1080p.
