Mortal Kombat Annihilation, I wont include the first one cos I do think that is a genuinely good film. Dead or Alive is a sometime guilty pleasure.... Cant think why.... On the subject of bad films... I watched The Crow: Wicked Prayer the other night, tempted to say it is the worst film I have ever ...

I dont like the artwork one bit, Don is someone I have loved for a long time, his artwork for the DW G1 ongoing was so good, helped by fantastic inks and brilliant colours by Espen G... But this? This is terrible artwork by Don et al.

My biggest issue was that I dont think Johnson got the writing his character deserves in that episode, and the actor didnt seem to slip back in to playing Johnson as easily

I wasn't aware that reporting spam was a pre-requisit of being a forum member. Not a pre-requisite, but simply the fact that if we want the forum to run nice and smooth then really, we all have to chip in and help out when we can. As I said, I've never really noticed any of that kind of spam, but i...

As mentioned above, was this a specific incident? Or is this just a general call to arms? EG - 6 or 7 threads on the main page? Or numerous threads and post and such basically covering the same subject? (I'm looking at that Starlord when it comes to both of those) I spose with me, most of my posts (...

Hmmm.... Kind of ironically, considering everyone is moaning about Disney messing with Marvel, Warner Bros have announced a major restructuring of DC and its properties under the banner of "DC Entertainment Inc." Here are 3 articles so far on the subject - http://comicbookresources.com/?page=article...

I have a Cineworld right near me, which do a deal where you sign up for a card (£12.50 a month now I think, but alot cheaper when I got it) and basically can go as many times as you want, and with the standard tickets costing between £5-8 (depending on time) its a pretty good deal if youre a cinema ...

How the Hell can Disney have a monopoly on comics when Warner owns DC, who are roughly the same size as Marvel? You do know what a monopoly is, right? It's when someone owns all the companies that provide one thing, thus controlling the market. It's not when they own lots of different companies in ...
