They obviously just thought people would buy that the Queen laid the eggs while hiding in the dropship. As we were discussing in one of the NECA threads recently though - her Ovipositor looks to be the only means for her to do that. The eggs seem to form inside that thing, not inside the Queen herself.

Too true. Very lazy but on the one hand Alien 3 was produced six years after ALIENS hit theaters in an era where diehards weren't regularly congregating on the internet and very few people even owned the previous film at home. They were no doubt counting on the general audience having a hazy recollection of just what the specifics of the alien lifecycle even was.

It would have been nice if it had synced up better with the previous films but as it stands I just count it as another "loose continuation" of the series not unlike the Mad Max films as was recently discussed. Whenever I watch ALIENS I do see it as the "end" of Ripley's conflict with the aliens and that she, Newt, and Hicks go back to Earth but I do like the option of indulging Fincher's debut feature from time to time.

I loved what they did with the characters, especially Mordo.
Great origin story of both him and Strange.
And it's a good Marvel for once.

1. Winter Soldier
2. Iron Man
3. The First Avenger
4. Doctor Strange
5 The Avengers

Hope they'll make a sequel before "Infinity War".

Because otherwise DC did the Flash time-travel (which is essentially an alternate reality) before.

That depends on the In-Universe rules though. In some fictional Us every time you abuse the spacetime continuum, you create a divergent reality. In others, you can travel back and forth, changing and modifying your universe, without creating branching realities. In DS they showed/talked about a legit Multiverse, so I'd say that's a tad different. Remember, we're talking about fictional laws of physics, so I'd say that real-life formulas and theorems don't count until we learn how each U works.

X-Men Apocalypse: 5.5/10

Yeah, it was disappointing. I LOVE all the X-Men movies (not counting the Wolvie solo movies) except 3, and I like pretty much everything by Singer, even Superman and Jack the Giant Slayer(!). But this one was just beyond his abilities. I blame the script, really. Way too much to have to tackle in one movie. It tried to do an origin story to way too many characters and it just felt so disjointed in the beginning jumping from one plot to the other. The Striker thing seemed to come out of nowhere and was ultimately a pretty useless subplot. And it was oddly a very straightforward plot just bogged down by too many characters. Once they got to Cairo and fought Apoc, it was pretty good.

I didn’t even like the Quicksilver scene which was the highlight of the previous one. I didn’t like how they handled Scott, making him a “rebel” cool kid who wanted to get out of the mansion and go hang out in the mall! And I didn’t like Jean using her “Phoenix” powers, since the Phoenix powers are very specific to that entity taking over her, and her rising from the ashes like a phoenix! They could have had Jean defeat Apoc, but just not hint at that Phoenix power by showing the flaming bird.

Still miles better than #3.

Not at all. An alternate timeline is always an alternate reality, not all the alternate realities have comicbook follow ups but theyre always considered alternate realities.

And thats not fictional, thats legit science brah

Plus they hinted at the new gods, which are "omniversal"

Plus CW Flash

That's why I said we should wait until each fictional Us' parameters and laws are detailed. Fictional universes don't have to comply to our rules and laws, since they're fictional. Case in point: When Doom uses his time machine, he doesn't create divergent timelines or alternate universes. He influences the one he's in, without creating branches.

Say, the course of events in U0 is: A -> B -> C. When Doom uses his machine, he doesn't do this:

A -> B -> C ...
|_> D -> E ...

He does this:

A -> B' -> C -> ...

By the same logic, we should wait until we see how the DCEU works. Again, it may contradict everything we know so far due to our studies, but it's fictional. The Universal Rules of the Care Bears Universe are as valid as the ones from Red Dead Redemption. The fact that one is bat**** crazy doesn't amount to much, since they're both fake.

Anyway, CW Flash has introduced a more fleshed out Multiverse which has its basis in reality, but that's seperate from the films. It wasn't explored in DS anyway, it was just a nod/tease.

I agree with everything, the movie just seemed rushed. The script was a major problem, but I also think the direction wasn't great either, and you can tell by the 3rd act there was some budget issues. I'd like Singer to stay on as a producer but a new director with a fresh take on these characters needs to take over.

Does time travel count as a multiverse? If that's the case, X Men did that in DOFP. I guess, to me a multiverse means different worlds and universes, not just time traveling within a single timeline or world.

The Flash tv show has the time travel which can create alternate time lines and change things in Barry's world, but they also have a multiverse that involves other worlds/versions of earth that has nothing to do with Barry time traveling.

I haven't seen DS, so I don't know what kind of multiverse they're showing. I know he has the time infinity stone, so maybe he's just time traveling like Flash...which to me is not a real multiverse.

See, that's what I'm talking about. We still don't know how time works in either the MCU or the DCEU, so I'd say we wait a bit before we classify time travel as the introduction to the Multiverse.


In the film, using the Stone Strange manipulates time like we would do with a video, going back and forth in a fixed set of events. This goes against the typical version of "time-travel/manipulation", as it's essentially a localised time bubble.


As it stands, in the flick the Ancient One talks about the Multiverse, as Universes on top of Universes and so on and so forth. It doesn't mention how they came into being or go into detail about the implications of time travel, but it sets up a clear Multiverse of many different Universes co-existing at the same time.

They have to comply as much as they comply with the rest of physics. Plus in comics it has been the same deal for decades. Multiverse.

In fact, when it became multiverse, the things that weren't multiverse didn't conflict at all so there wasn't even any retcon.



Case in point: When Doom uses his time machine, he doesn't create divergent timelines or alternate universes. He influences the one he's in, without creating branches.

It actually could be either or, from your perspective you are creating a new timeline, but from the universe's perspective all timelines already exist at all times, so you're either "creating" one or jumping from timeline to timeline.

It's still the same thing, Multiverse.


By the same logic, we should wait until we see how the DCEU works. Again, it may contradict everything we know so far due to our studies, but it's fictional. The Universal Rules of the Care Bears Universe are as valid as the ones from Red Dead Redemption. The fact that one is bat**** crazy doesn't amount to much, since they're both fake.
Nope. And again, since they hinted at the New Gods that pretty much settles it. If there was any doubt to begin with.

Yes. A multiverse implies changes can be infinite yet so small that you could have alternate realities where you can't tell the difference, and other that are so different they defy comprehension.

You usually have stories about time travel or alternate realities that are substantially different, but they're part of the same topic.



See, that's what I'm talking about. We still don't know how time works in either the MCU or the DCEU, so I'd say we wait a bit before we classify time travel as the introduction to the Multiverse.

In the film, using the Stone Strange manipulates time like we would do with a video, going back and forth in a fixed set of events. This goes against the typical version of "time-travel/manipulation", as it's essentially a localised time bubble.

But that's the usual stuff, since time can be viewed as a dimension with 2 directions you "could" move back and forth like DS does, it's only when you make a change in a given point in that time dimension that you "create" a new timeline, but it's still the same thing.



As it stands, in the flick the Ancient One talks about the Multiverse, as Universes on top of Universes and so on and so forth.

Still the same thing.

When you said "we have to wait to see the rules" and stuff I thought you meant the alternatives to Multiverse like the cosmic patches theory... As it is you're just referring to different parts of the same thing as if time travel was foreign to the multiverse, when in reality is either part of or one and the same thing.

Eh, they're fictional Universes. They can just say that blending water, cranberries, coca-cola and lemon together opens a portal to another Earth, and it'd still be valid. They don't necessarily have to follow our rules of reality. I mean, look at Toon--Force.



It actually could be either or, from your perspective you are creating a new timeline, but from the universe's perspective all timelines already exist at all times, so you're either "creating" one or jumping from timeline to timeline.

It's still the same thing, Multiverse.



Thing is though... it's not like that. In the Marvel Universe, when people use Time-Travel, things go down like you said. Divergent realities and all that. But, when Doom uses his Time-Machine, due to the Doomlocks, he doesn't "create" a new timeline. He modifies the past one and events change. No two realities exist at the same time, the old one and the modified one. Only the latter. So when he time travels to an earlier point of the 616 and changes something, the 616 itself changes. Same goes for Kang.

And that's just the way it is. It might go against what we know about the Multiverse and what Time-Travel usually does, but that's the way it is. it's Comics, so they have fictional rules. It's why Doom is the only person who can traverse the timeline without breaking things.



Nope. And again, since they hinted at the New Gods that pretty much settles it. If there was any doubt to begin with.

Eh, I guess that's fair. But GotG introduced the Celestials* as well, so there's that.

*There are many origins, but the most widely accepted one is that they were created by the Fulcrum/God, so they're Multiversal.



They've said movies, tv and comics are part of the DC multiverse actually, even movies before the DCEU.

Was that ever confirmed though? I'd read interviews and such, but only about the CW shows and the DCEU. It hasn't been shown on film though, that's what I'm saying.


And IIRC the MCU also became part of the alternate earths in the MU recently.

I don't think so, outherwise it'd have to be dragged into Secret Wars. The MCU is not connected to the comics. The Rami and Webb Spider-Films had a cameo in Spider-Verse though.



But we do.


I'd say not completely. Look at Doctor Who. There there are fixed points which can never be changed, all the while the Doctor can't move between Dimensions. In the Marvel U though, there are no fixed points. So, I'd say that there are still thingd we have to know about the inner workings of each Universe.



But that's the usual stuff, since time can be viewed as a dimension with 2 directions you "could" move back and forth like DS does, it's only when you make a change in a given point in that time dimension that you "create" a new timeline, but it's still the same thing.

Yeah, I know, I was just pointing out the extent of Strange's time manipulation in the flick. He still hasn't displayed anything like the books.


Still the same thing.

I know, I'm just saying what the Multiverse nod in the flick was. There's not much more than that, hence, a nod.


When you said "we have to wait to see the rules" and stuff I thought you meant the alternatives to Multiverse like the cosmic patches theory... As it is you're just referring to different parts of the same thing as if time travel was foreign to the multiverse, when in reality is either part of or one and the same thing.

Eh, just because something is proven through mathematical formulas in our universe doesn't mean that the same holds for fictional ones. I'm not saying you're wrong as far as RL theorems and CB "science", but I'd rather wait a bit until they properly explore the concept.

We have Mr. Mxyzptlk too, and his stuff is just a rationalization of 5D antics. It looks like cartoon logic to us.

Then I don't know what kind of dumbass wrote that because that's not how it works and I guarantee you the MU itself contradicts that in countless occasions, some come to mind right now, mainly with the X-men and Thor.

Either that or Doom is dumb enough to not know he can't not "create" alternate realities. You just can't, it's axiomatically dumb :lol

So I'd blame that one on the writer, whoever it is.

Eh, I guess that's fair. But GotG introduced the Celestials* as well, so there's that.

*There are many origins, but the most widely accepted one is that they were created by the Fulcrum/God, so they're Multiversal.
Yeah but they're not omniversal, it's not the same thing, there exist Celestials across the multiverse whereas the New Gods are above the multiverse and have no "alternates". Meaning a celestial could very well exist within a universe without a multiverse.

Although tbh, for anything CBM related, or anything at all really, the idea of any sort of Multiverse is a given for me, it's a really popular current in physics right now, with solid reasoning behind it, it's hard to think it may not be true. The alternatives are like I said, the Cosmic patches theory and such, and those are lame, although for the purposes of this discussion they don't change the discussion much, really.

If anything, the Multiverse is easy stuff, Time travel is way harder to think about and could even be physically impossible.



Was that ever confirmed though? I'd read interviews and such, but only about the CW shows and the DCEU. It hasn't been shown on film though, that's what I'm saying.
The multiversity between TV and Movies hasn't been shown obviously only hinted at, although I think I remember seeing something around the time before Rebirth but don't quote me on that.

But within the DCEU it has, in BvS.



I don't think so, outherwise it'd have to be dragged into Secret Wars. The MCU is not connected to the comics. The Rami and Webb Spider-Films had a cameo in Spider-Verse though.
I think I saw once that the MCU was earth-whateverwhatever number, along the Ultimates and such.



I'd say not completely. Look at Doctor Who. There there are fixed points which can never be changed, all the while the Doctor can't move between Dimensions. In the Marvel U though, there are no fixed points. So, I'd say that there are still thingd we have to know about the inner workings of each Universe.
I don't know about Dr. Who, but the fact that he "can't move between Dimensions" doesn't mean they don't exist, I'm guessing that's just a limitation set up for the tech in-show, not an intrinsic characteristic of the multiverse, don't they have alternate realities? Plus saying they can't travel between dimensions in time-travel is like saying you can't movie within our 3 dimensions as time passes, you can't exclude it.



Eh, just because something is proven through mathematical formulas in our universe doesn't mean that the same holds for fictional ones. I'm not saying you're wrong as far as RL theorems and CB "science", but I'd rather wait a bit until they properly explore the concept.
But it does, if they have regular "fake" physics rules then that extends to the multiverse.

If they have gravity and they have a multiverse, it's safe to assume they work similarly.

I know, but, my whole point is that you should throw away everything you know, because every fictional universe is free to have its own set of rules.



Then I don't know what kind of dumbass wrote that because that's not how it works and I guarantee you the MU itself contradicts that in countless occasions, some come to mind right now, mainly with the X-men and Thor.

Nah, it makes sense, for two reasons:

1) Doom.

2) Magic. Doomlocks are a mix of science and magic (dark magic, white magic, all of it), so Doom can do whatever the **** he wants. Remember, magic is the cheat codes of reality. With Magic, Lucifer Morningstar created a Universe out of a magically enhanced piece of paper. It's not like Doom goes around abusing the time-stream anyway, he just uses it for gaining information, studying under legendary teachers, that stuff. Oh, and stealing Blackbeard's treasure...

Apart from Doom, every other instance of Time-Travel in the MU goes down as expected, but Vic is... special. Either way, I wouldn't think too much of it. It's fiction, and it's got magic in it, so I'd leave it at that. No need to overthink it.

Oh, and here's a fun fact: Moon Knight is a singular entity. Back in Marc Spector: MK, there was the Moon Knight version of Spider-Verse, where Marc killed every other doppelganger of him across the Multiverse. And yeah, I know that it doesn't make much sense, but... magic... So, yeah, Spector is now unique.


Yeah but they're not omniversal, it's not the same thing, there exist Celestials across the multiverse whereas the New Gods are above the multiverse and have no "alternates". Meaning a celestial could very well exist within a universe without a multiverse.


Nah, they are Omniversal according to this Origin. The Celestials are singular across the Multiverse, same thing as the Living Tribunal, TOAA, Eternity, etc, etc. Back then they were Universal, but after the Fulcrum Ret-Con they're on par with the other singular cosmic beings.


Although tbh, for anything CBM related, or anything at all really, the idea of any sort of Multiverse is a given for me, it's a really popular current in physics right now, with solid reasoning behind it, it's hard to think it may not be true. The alternatives are like I said, the Cosmic patches theory and such, and those are lame, although for the purposes of this discussion they don't change the discussion much, really.

If anything, the Multiverse is easy stuff, Time travel is way harder to think about and could even be physically impossible.



Eh, I'd rather wait and see how they handle it. DC has a fixed Multiverse (52 Earths), whereas Marvel's is ever expanding, so there's one major difference.



The multiversity between TV and Movies hasn't been shown obviously only hinted at, although I think I remember seeing something around the time before Rebirth but don't quote me on that.

But within the DCEU it has, in BvS.



Dunno, with the DCMulti having only 52 Earths, I'd consider it a waste to give two or three to the movies and shows.



I think I saw once that the MCU was earth-whateverwhatever number, along the Ultimates and such.

It's got a number since there are tie-in comics, but it's not been confirmed, kinda like "our" Universe.



I don't know about Dr. Who, but the fact that he "can't move between Dimensions" doesn't mean they don't exist, I'm guessing that's just a limitation set up for the tech in-show, not an intrinsic characteristic of the multiverse, don't they have alternate realities? Plus saying they can't travel between dimensions in time-travel is like saying you can't movie within our 3 dimensions as time passes, you can't exclude it.

According to Who-Verse, each timeline creates a new Universe, but the Doctor can't visit them. So he travels through time, messes with things, but he always resides in his native universe, even though he creates branches with each alteration.



But it does, if they have regular "fake" physics rules then that extends to the multiverse.

If they have gravity and they have a multiverse, it's safe to assume they work similarly.

Fair enough. But I'd just rather wait for some more concrete info.

I know, but, my whole point is that you should throw away everything you know, because every fictional universe is free to have its own set of rules.
Nope.

Both DC and Marvel, hell, even Dragon Ball, have the exact same structure for multiverse, so does most pop-culture, which is virtually the same if not based on the actual IRL one.

There's no reason to think it should be any different.



Nah, it makes sense, for two reasons:

1) Doom.

2) Magic. Doomlocks are a mix of science and magic (dark magic, white magic, all of it), so Doom can do whatever the **** he wants. Remember, magic is the cheat codes of reality. With Magic, Lucifer Morningstar created a Universe out of a magically enhanced piece of paper. It's not like Doom goes around abusing the time-stream anyway, he just uses it for gaining information, studying under legendary teachers, that stuff. Oh, and stealing Blackbeard's treasure...

Apart from Doom, every other instance of Time-Travel in the MU goes down as expected, but Vic is... special. Either way, I wouldn't think too much of it. It's fiction, and it's got magic in it, so I'd leave it at that. No need to overthink it.

Oh, and here's a fun fact: Moon Knight is a singular entity. Back in Marc Spector: MK, there was the Moon Knight version of Spider-Verse, where Marc killed every other doppelganger of him across the Multiverse. And yeah, I know that it doesn't make much sense, but... magic... So, yeah, Spector is now unique.

It still doesn't make sense and it's still stupid, wtf, I'm mad now, who wrote this crap? Who the **** does he think he is, Brahma? :lol Why does TOAA or the Living Tribunal let him do this? :lol It's not overthinking it, it's just dumb. I hate when everyone thinks they're Grant Morrison lmao look I'm trippy too Like I was reading MK today and reached the part of the "othervoid" and rolled my eyes sooooo hard...

Magic is not the wild-card you think it is. It's still axiomatically stupid.



Nah, they are Omniversal according to this Origin. The Celestials are singular across the Multiverse.
No they're not, there are versions of them depending on which universe you're in.



Eh, I'd rather wait and see how they handle it. DC has a fixed Multiverse (52 Earths), whereas Marvel's is ever expanding, so there's one major difference.
No, that's not true, they have 52 earths of stuff they publish but they have more. They're both the same.



Dunno, with the DCMulti having only 52 Earths.
Again, no, that wasn't true with the New 52, it wasn't true with Convergence and it isn't true with Rebirth.



According to Who-Verse, each timeline creates a new Universe, but the Doctor can't visit them. So he travels through time, messes with things, but he always resides in his native universe, even though he creates branches with each alteration.
So there you go, I got it right. It's a made up limitation for the show, not a characteristic of their multiverse. I'm telling you, it's the same thing all over.



Fair enough. But I'd just rather wait for some more concrete info.
Like what would you think they'd change? Except put in some fake limitations like with Dr. Who but the nature of their multiverse won't change, it's like expecting gravity to go upside down because "comics are fake and can do anything".

There's no reason to think it should be any different.



Fair enough, I guess. But since they're fictional, I can accept anything as long as there are underlying rules. Orange + Apple = 5 is fine by me as long as Orange + Banana = 3. You get me?



It still doesn't make sense and it's still stupid, wtf, I'm mad now, who wrote this crap?

It's been there since the first few issues back in the 60s.


Magic is not the wild-card you think it is. It's still axiomatically stupid.

If I can accept that a guy "evolved" himself far enough to be able to tangle with Galactus, or that the Devil created a whole universe out of nothing, while God makes people fiery skeletons to punish sinners, then I can accept a made-up loophole for a made-up invention in a made-up universe.



No they're not, there are versions of them depending on which universe you're in.

And I'm telling you that's not exactly the case. It's never been made clear whether the Celestials in stories such as Earth X are AUs or the same thing. Their origins are many, but most put them as a tad bellow Living Tribunal, Master Order/Chaos and the like, making them Omniversal, and not simply Universal.



No, that's not true, they have 52 earths of stuff they publish but they have more. They're both the same.

So what's the point of the whole "52 Earths" thing then? Some are unnamed and most haven't even been explored. If they still have a Multiverse, why use the 52 Earths "limitation"?



So there you go, I got it right. It's a made up limitation for the show, not a characteristic of their multiverse. I'm telling you, it's the same thing all over.

Made-Up "rules" in a made-up "world" are just as valid in my book. I ain't saying that makes it different, but it's an example of another approach.


Like what would you think they'd change? Except put in some fake limitations like with Dr. Who but the nature of their multiverse won't change, it's like expecting gravity to go upside down because "comics are fake and can do anything".

It's not a loophole, it's dumb excuse of writing product of whimsical times.

Plus, there are allegories to represent magic or processes that were not supposed to understand (Like Lucifer and his paper), and then there's that Doom ******** :lol

No no, you're confusing things, a made up rule that prohibits your characters to do stuff for plot purposes does not describe the nature of your uni/multiverse.

And it's not another approach, it's the same approach I've been describing all along, because when you say multiverse, it's always the same thing.

No, the Living Tribunal IS Omniversal, the celestial aren't, they're like any other character with different versions in different universes.

By the same logic I can throw at you the Ret-Con that the Tribunal isn't Omniversal, because in Starlin's Thanos OGN Trilogy he dies and Adam Warlock becomes the new LT, even though the Beyonders killed every fragment of the Tribunal in Secret Wars. Inconsistencies exist, due to the countless retcons. As it stands, from 2007 or so and afterwards, the Celestials are considered Multiversal.

There's a bit more to it in the Who-Verse. There was a Universe where things, including laws of physics and everything, were manipulated to act opposite of how they should (don't quote me on that cause I'm not sure though).

It's not like I can hop into my time-machine, take a trip inside a black hole and visit my alien friends in Alt-U 4546868, and the inconsistency of comic book science contradicts the real world "facts". They're made up things, in made up worlds, loosely based on theories that are based on mathematical formulas and with the minimum amount of physical evidence. Infinity War could say that TOAA is a sentient jelly bean, and JL could say that Highfather is Jesus' half-brother, and it'd be just as valid for me.

Nope, the Tribunal is still omniversal, he still watches over multiverse doesn't he? Unless that has changed he is still omniversal.

Nope, the Celestials aren't omniversal, if there are versions per universe and are bound to a universe. Sorry.

Yes, they are multiversal, as multiversal as any regular character with different versions in other universes.

The watchers aren't omniversal either, they're actually just aliens.

Dude, again, second time, when I start repeating myself because people don't read I start to get tired.

There are more than 52 earths, I don't think they have published stuff from all those 52 earths and they have published stuff that's OUTSIDE the 52 earths, as well as pocket universes. I don't think that map even accounts for all the stuff that went canon after Convergence and in Rebirth. Which is basically everything.

Again, drawing 52 earths is easier than drawing infinite earths, that map you posted there, is exactly what I was talking about.

There is one thing you can see clearly there, the new gods are above the multiverse, making them omniversal, unlike the celestials.

Yeah that's all fine, it doesn't make that Doom stuff not stupid and doesn't change the fact that BvS brought the whole thing, nor that the multiverse is exactly what I've been talking about that you treated like a separate thing because you wanted to wait for more info nor that there's any reason to expect it to be different in the cinematic universes, etc etc.

I clearly posted scans that show that the Celestials took the "universe" and turned into the "Multiverse". I also posted scans that show that they are second only to the Fulcrum/TOAA and the usual suspects like TLT, just like the Watchers. They are singular entities across the Multiverse, meaning that there are no duplicates. There's no 616 Arishem and 6565875657 Arishem. There's just... Arishem. Same as The New Gods. The Presensce is still above them.

As for the DC Multiverse, that's the official map. As far as I know, each Multiverse contains 52 Universes, but they're all collected in the Omniverse:

http://static3.comicvine.com/uploads/original/11121/111216997/4553468-ss3uoch.jpg

And besides all that, they're just fictional characters. I don't see the point in getting all worked up and treating them as reality. The writers can do whatever the **** they want with them, because they're... not real. And neither do we have all the answers concerning alternate Earths/Universes, Time-Travel or the various dimensions. We have formulas and mathematically "proven" theorems, but little to no physical evidence. So, personally speaking, I'd stop worrying whether comic books have "scientific" explainations.

As I've read, each celestial click has their own earth, that does not make them multiversal, much less omniversal at all, it makes them unique, like Moon Knight, but not Omniversal. And the Watchers aren't Omniversal either. Is TLT still watching over the multiverse or not?

I stand corrected there though.



No, they're not bound in any Universe. If that was the case, then they couldn't have attacked the Council of Reeds, which was compromised of Reed Richards' from various Universes, having meetings in the space between Universes. Back in the day, the Celestials were like what you're describing, but after 2007, some, if not all of them, are singular beings in all of the Multiverse/Omniverse with no duplicates.

There are 616 Celestials, no? I should rephrase, they live in a universe no? Since nobody in comics is really bound to a single universe.

And there are versions, no? Not duplicates, but versions in other earths. Is this not true?

You missed Convergence and Rebirth then. Plus the various pocket universes and unlisted earths stories.


Considering that, at this point, Time-Travel is also not real/feasible... I don't really give a damn how they depict it.
I said it was even harder than the multiverse, even impossible, like 5 posts ago :lol

Yeah it may not be possible but that Doom thin was dumb to a logical level.

There are 616 Celestials, no? I should rephrase, they live in a universe no? Since nobody in comics is really bound to a single universe.

And there are versions, no? Not duplicates, but versions in other earths. Is this not true?



Yes, but they all originate from the same place. It's as if the New Gods abandoned their home and each one went to live in a different universe. They'd still be the same singular beings in all of reality, no?

They should've added a disclaimer, or an asterisk, or something. Even in the Multiversity Guidebook, they list just the 52 Earths, even if most are blank. If they wanted to imply that those were just notable examples, they should've made it more clear.

They'd not longer be omniversal.

Well, that map is from 2014, a lot has happened since.

Plus it's already contradictory since at the edge of the multiverse there's the source wall and outside there's the overvoid. But then again, quantum foam.

Well, axioms aren't fake so :lol

Doesn't matter how fake or how weird, as long as there is existence, fictional or not, physically known or not, there will always be such primordial rules as action -> reaction.

Otherwise there's only the overvoid and Doom does not live in the overvoid :lol

Eh, if your map shows 52 Earths, and the Guidebook shows 52 Earths without any indication of others, I'm gonna take that to mean that there are only 52 Earths.

Dr Strange: 7.5/10

I enjoyed it. I know it gets a lot of flack for being safe and formulaic, but I don’t mind that at all. There are still plenty of variations that can be created using the same structure. Just like a pop song can have the same verse/chorus/verse/chorus/musical bridge/final chorus and still yield thousands of different types of songs, then so can movies.

Anyway, good movie. All the actors were great and I enjoyed the action and characters.

One thing I didn’t like was the 3D. This was the third “modern” movie I’ve seen in 3D and I’ve hated the experience every single time. That’s it for me. No more 3D. Looking forward to seeing it in 2D eventually.

This was a little weirder than expected, which was cool for the most part. I think the movie went on a little too long. The voice work from the living actors was distracting sometimes, kind of like the James Bond game that had Connery in it. Even though this is probably a onetime watch for me I'm glad I saw Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.

Just got out from seeing Arrival. Dennis Villeneuve made a f--king masterpiece of a sci-fi film. The film feels like a movie that Christopher Nolan would have made if he was given an art-house project, but was told to use restraint when it comes to the action and plot. Now don't misunderstand me, there is action, however this movie isn't what you think it is. That's all i can say. Totally amaaaaaazing. Some folks aren't going to like this movie because it progresses slowly, but I'd still give it a shot if you're simply a fan of great f--king movies.

Ghostbusters 2016: 7/10

Not nearly as terrible as people made it out to be. Amusing but not necessarily LOL funny. Kristen Wiig was great as always and thought Melissa McCarthy did pretty well. The characters were actually well written and well defined. I don’t know what all that hubub was about saying that men were portrayed as buffoons. There was only one dumb guy in the movie—Thor.

Yeah'.If at all possible and you don't mind subtitles try to find these in the original release w/subs.Shaw Brothers did a lot for Chinese Cinema coming to the US in the late 60's early 70's.So they did Dub versions of most of their films.But remember the Dub versions 70% of the time make the films slightly cornier.Funny how I recognize the Dub voices of certain actors in the SB films.I grew up in San Francisco and there were a couple of Chinese Theaters I would frequent for original versions.
Here are a few and honestly there are hundreds more of them.Many of the greats had 2 or 3 sequels.
1966 Come Drink With Me (all time classic)
1972 The 14 Amazons (excellent)
1976 Executioners from Shaolin
1978 Five Deadly Venoms
1978 The 36th Chamber of Shaolin (one of the all time greats)
1979 The Crane Fighter
1982 Legendary Weapons of China (aka:LWO Kung Fu)
1982 Shaolin Prince
1983 Holy Flame of the Martial World (one of my all time fav's for zany special effects wizards and great fighting sequences)
1993 Iron Monkey(very good)

a couple of later films that are also VG with HQ picture and sound
2011 Legendary Amazons
2011 Shaolin
2013 The Fox Lover (more of a fantasy)

These are all period pieces.Not even touching on the 70's flood of Chinese Kung Fu Cinema.So have fun.

It didn't bothered me that much because I think the X-Men continuity is FUBAR so I just turned my brain off. The final fight feels refreshing simply because we get to see Cyclops and Jean. Aside from the boring first half, I guess my biggest gripe is Apocolype, why can't they use CGI to make the actor bigger? He's TINY! :slap

Too OTT and cheesy for its own sake. While the concept and ideas behind it are fresh and cool... in terms of writing and visuals it feels like a homage to cheap Showa films. It just doesnt work, especially when the narrative drags like a 10 years old girl with the drunk-to-death grandfather on her back.

Cap America: First Avenger: 6/10

This is my third time watching it and I think I like it less every time. I didn’t like it when it first came out and I still don’t quite understand why. It seems to hit all the right notes on paper. It’s a good story. All the actors are perfect for their roles. I can point to the overly sci-fi approach they tried with all the Hydra stuff, or the more nostalgic style of moviemaking that seemed to hold the intensity back a bit, or even some cheap looking sets. But I simply could not connect to the movie or characters. I’ve said it before, but I see the scene where I’m supposed to feel sad or inspired or whatever, but I just don’t feel it. The terrible music didn’t help either. Way too overbearing and obvious is trying to elicit an emotion. People complain that Doc Strange and Ant Man were formulaic. Well, this one really feels like it is, and generic to boot. Both Cap sequels put this one to absolute shame.

I’ll list some good points: I liked the Red Skull. I thought the Cap USO montage was good. And I like the story overall. I really wish I could like it more and I’ve gone back to it twice to try and re-evaluate it.

Anyway, by far the worst of the MCU origin movies, and competing against Thor 2 as the worst MCU movie overall.

I should also point out that I really enjoy the vast majority of the MCU movies. I think they are all great. I even really like/love Iron Man 3, Doc Strange, Ant Man and both Avengers movies, which I know are all very divisive. CA:FA just doesn’t do it for me.

Well, I thought it was pretty good for a web series. It's the best live action SF adaptation so far. I wouldn't pay for it, but luckily I saw it on YouTube when it was originally released.

I thought they captured the look and the spirt of the original games.

Here are the first 2 episode. They're pretty short. The season doesn't just focus on Ryu and Ken, but also their master and Akuma, but that's later.

3rd time watching it. It was good, and for the time it was pretty good. Remember we only had Iron Man 1 & 2 and Incredible Hulk. Not even Cap First Avenger. Where the movie really shines is in the relationship between Thor and Loki. The Loki role was fantastic—so complex and actually emotionally vulnerable. I thought the Destroyer looked great. Interesting that the movie started “in the middle” then flashed back a few days earlier. It was just the trend back then to do that kind of out of sequence thing, thanks to Batman Begins.

Yep. Staying on mission and everyone would of been left alive and as we know from the ending, the payload was going to succeed.

I love the film a lot. I know a lot of people hate the third act since it turns into a slasher film, but I came to accept it. Throughout the beginning you see a few of them start to go Sun crazy, and Pinbacker is the final stage of that.

No doubt. I think the first is the best of just about every horror franchise, and the only reason I don't say "all" is because I haven't seen them all lol.

Almost every horror franchise. Just off the top of my head, I can say that I enjoyed The Conjuring 2 just as much as the first and I definitely enjoyed Friday 13th Part 3 more than the first two installments.

Yeah, but after the Descent I feel like I can't breathe since it's so suffocating.

Eh, I really like "The Descent". Most of Neil Marshall's stuff is good.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 5.5/10
for me the story was interesting but not well executed.Most importantly our main character Newt was made to be very impish,shy or just moron-ish in character.Which made Eddie a sort of mumbling Dit.Not a very good part for an excellent actor.
The New York exterior and interior sets were very good but not as finely detailed as the HP films.The CGI was all over the place some of the most important close ups looked like they were done by the Sharknado crew from SyFy channel.And some were excellent.
It was nice to see Gemma Chan even in a very small part in this film.

Good, very good, I approve. What about the Animatrix? You're supposed to watch that between 2 and 3, YOU WATCHED IT WRONG!!!

I watched the trilogy on tv today, so no Animatrix. It had been a few years since I'd seen Revolutions. I never noticed how the green tint was gone in the last scene of part 3. Nice little detail.

I haven't seen the Animatrix since 2004 maybe. All I remember is the guy running breaking his knee or leg.

I wonder what they'll do with the supposed reboot, if there's a franchise that can make a legitimate use of reboots in an artistic way, it's the Matrix, since it's filled with Vedic influences.

And if it's the Wachowski's I'm sure they'll make good use of that, I just hope it's not as weak as Jupiter Ascending or that it doesn't taint the first 3.

I'm not sure I trust the Wachowski's anymore, but at the same time they might be the only people I trust revisiting their material. If someone else takes over it might feel like fanfiction.

Still, I have no idea where they can take the story. I wouldn't mind a new trilogy with some new characters as long as the old cast returns in some way. Maybe they can do a new Aimatrix or some CGI/animated show on Netflix or something if they can't make a new film.

After watching the trilogy, I'd like some merchandise and figures from it even more so than a new film. Why isn't there any merchandise? No Neca figures or even those funko pop things. Nothing. :dunno

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS (2016)

http://i67.tinypic.com/29c00va.jpg

In his second film, Tom Ford (A Single Man) tells two enthralling stories: one that depicts the massive disconnect from reality in the real world and one that offers a grounded shelter in the fictional world. Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal lead both stories with great turns. These are master actors currently peaking (Adams will probably win Best Actress this year for Denis Villeneuve's Arrival) that deliver the goods in every scene - but its the absurdly magnetic Michael Shannon who steals the show as an anachronistic presence throughout the film. A performance that will most definitely earn him his second Best Supporting Actor Nomination (his first was for Sam Mendes' Revolutionary Road) and maybe first win. Shannon is on fire in this movie. Overall, Nocturnal Animals is a great sophomoric offering by Ford and further proof of what a fantastic auteur the man is.

9.5/10

Agree on all that, I also don't trust much on the Wachowkis but they're the only ones I want around Matrix, I think the Matrix could bring out the best in them.

I would prefer no new films but we know how it is, I have a slight idea where it could go, it could continue to dig humanity out of the hole it dug itself into, now that there is truce. Enemies and Protagonists could be the same, only reborn, at least Neo and Smith, since in the Vedas it explains every day the universe is created and in every night it is destroyed.

I knowww I want a Reloaded/Revolutions Neo so much. Also a Smith and a Mouse :lol because the old McFarlane ones are terrible.

Could you imagine if they got Will Smith to play the new Neo? :lol

I was a big fan of McFarlane back in 2003 and I was really into the Matrix and T3 figures. I remember getting the stair set. :lol I still have the T3 stuff and they look nice, but thank god Neca did those Ultimate figures. Unfortunately they don't seem interested in making Matrix figures, which is a shame but trilogy is not old enough for them yet and there isn't enough nostalgia for it yet.

Funko made Matrix pop figures :lol

I'm so glad they didn't get Smith, I like Smith but Keanu was so well cast.

There are some MF figures that still blow me away, but most movie human figures have weird faces.

Moana - 9/10

Wow! Disney has such an amazing track record, and this is one of their stronger films. Achingly beautiful, fully realized characters, funny, entertaining and powerful story with very good music. Really paid tribute to the Polynesiam people it depicted.

I don't know if it will catch on like Frozen, but it deserves to.

This is a must buy.
