    Sure but how many times must that shit be said? Can I expect next year when The Boys S3 comes out to hear you complain about capeshit movies ad nauseum? It's a thing. For twenty years now. Go yell at a cloud about western movies in the 50's

    You'd hope that the cultural response to superhero movies would produce something as fucking incredible as the 50's westerns leading into the Spaghetti Westerns later on but I just don't think the source material is capable of that level of filmmaking. I can't even begin to picture how that would manifest.

    I think it depends on what they choose to adapt. You adapt mindless shit like Shazam and you get a fairly average superhero flick.

    True enough. It's not like The Good, The Bad and the Ugly is that mind blowing if you put the plot to paper.

    That sounds fucking awful yet I want to know more about this.
    Whenever the opportunity presents itself.
    They made The Boys into a tv show for Amazon, I think the quality of that would speak for itself.
    Hey stop that. this isn't the place for being smart, this is about the gnashing of teeth and pulling ones hair out.

    Don't get butthurt because your shit is repetitive. Disney bad. Movies bad. Games bad. Leftists bad. EndGm script. I just chose to call you out on it because it's boring and I want you to move past your boring behavior. Because frankly everyone knows the fucking world sucks. Nobody needs to hear it anymore than they already do.

    Writer was a guy called Bemis(?) I think. Highlights of that run included an attempt at being comedic but in the ever lovely way of making everyone speak like LA socialites that "Eugh totally can't even do this right now, jeez. Just stop, okay?" the invention of a cosmic-arch rival and the idea that there's a Moon Knight and this new OC Donut Steel in every point throughout history and the original Moon Knight was a black lady cavewoman with wolverine claws. There was a sequence where Moon Knight gets absorbed into the Thing-like biomass of New York hipsters where he becomes an exaggerated masculine caricature to satisfy the writer's "Himbo" fetish and there's also a plotline where he has a secret daughter which is also a stand in for the writer's kid.

    Just generally a short-lived nightmare with dialogue that sounds like a Twitter thread rather than someone putting in the effort to write an actual story (as in, everyone sounds exactly the same) with repulsive art. Which is a shame since the three runs before it had really strong writing and really strong art.

    And yeah the arc culminates in Moon Knight "embracing his mental illness" which results him saying "I have the power of crazy!" and uppercutting the donut steel villain, Sun King.

    the world doesn't suck. I don't know where you got that idea from. I kinda like moon knight from the little I know about him so I find him getting a pg13 movie to be kinda underwhelming. Now if it was a Sam Rami low budget Rated R Darkman film we would be having a different discussion.
    If there was ever a retarded rabbit hole I needed to go down, this is it.

    It's honestly not even spastic enough to be entertaining. It's just lame.

    something about groan inducing garbage I find entertaining to a small degree. I won't spend money or effort to find it. but seeing such trash is kinda amusing to me.

    Speaking of superheros with delusions of reality, I loved this movie as a kid. Still do:

    Put it in a bowl of soup at least and the Chinese will play ball.

    I am excited to see the numbers on who's going to be watching this next phase of capeshit, you can tell Marvel knows what's up since the next Spiderman is starting to rely on nostalga for the previous iterations of the web-slinger (or they realize that Holland can't carry a film, every movie he's mainlining has to be paired with a heavy-hitter; Downey Jr., Keaton, Jake Gyllenhaal, now Maguire and Garfield.) It's only a matter of time before they move on to the next big thing. Maybe it'll be another age of Rom-coms, that'll be swell.

    He is deeper than most realize. His butthurt over obvious materialist consumerist driven industries is retarded though.

    Seems okay with fucking with other people's creations, never thought I'd see a deep one get jerked off and blow his load in a comic before, old hippie. He's based on the EQ though so I'll give him that.

    EDIT: I saw this and laughed for half an hour straight, this is perfect.

    No, he is just a basic bitch that can't remember anything. Carlson told him all about the actual climate issue but apparently he like forgot or something. Even though the dude has been by 5 times. Dude sits and smokes cigars while whining about sober October while being a boring scowling bitch the entire interview.
