    I have a soft spot for Ke$ha









    and by soft spot I mean I would do unspeakable things to her that I could not get away with on more respectable women.

    I'll get off your sh*t now since you're willing to bow down to Nolan's greatness. :) He really knows whats he's doing and is an exceptional filmmaker. That's why his Batman movies all deserve multiple viewings, because on the second viewing, you'll pick up on certain character traits or "easter eggs" you didn't notice the first time. They're engaging and intelligent but also filled with a lot of subtle greatness is what makes those movies so good.

    But in fairness, Nolan has his own style, and most filmmakers prefer to stick to the campy style and true spirit of the original comics when they do superhero movies.

    And just for the record, I'm not an Avengers apologist, I only came to the defense cuz of how much you hated the movie. I really only liked it as much as I did because of Loki, Tom Hiddleston really did steal the show. But take away the Loki scenes, and even to me, Avengers wasn't anything special.

    I will rip your wolf pack apart tendon by tendon and then resume my role as a lone wolf.

    The worst in music probably happened between 2007-2011. The new artists coming in now are at least a little better.

    Is it a reading comprehension thing with you? Again, scan your Avengers thread or Iron Man or Batman threads. You won't find a single post by me.
    If those movies got me 'mad' you'd hear it from me there.
    My only comment about The Avengers to this point was the one that started the fanboy meltdown here. I didn't even the movie until last week..

    Irrelevant if you don't post about it in those threads. When you do post about it, it's always negative.

    lol, what fanboy meltdown? People disagreed with you and called you out on your elitist attitude towards popular movies which so far you have done nothing to say we are wrong.

    I feel dirty... i just read a couple of pages with y'all arguing about CGI.

    Here's news: CGI is everywhere. It's in your network drama series, your toothbrush commercials, your newscasts. A simple conversation between two people in a park?... sorry folks, it's a green screen. Hawaii Five-O is probably the only one that still uses actual live set filming, although they did use CGI in a flashback sequence when Dano escapes a dangerous drug bust in NYC on 9/11.

    CGI is modern animation; it gives us things we can't normally get and it's not going anywhere.
    It ALL looks good....the tools develop and change with the times as do the styles. About the only bad CGI is on SyFy.
