Live-action Kite. Why?

WHY!?

I'm sorry, but the rape scene in both versions of Girl with a Dragon Tattoo was enough for me. I'd prefer not to see where a Kite adaptation takes that >.>

I'm still laughing at your reaction to Shia Labeouf, but I admit not being a big fan of other people misery, even if I can't stand them...

On another note... Wow, they're really trying to pump up Superman vs Batman, putting every cannon fodder they can...

I disagree with you about Lex Luthor because it makes sense to me that Lex Luthor would want to profit from his various inventions. The existence of Lex Corp also gives him a good vantage point to pull off his schemes for and gives a good way to explain how he can launch attacks on Superman so often and still afford the next giant robot.

On the note of 2 Broke Girls, wouldn't 'sexy humor' first have to qualify as 'humor' to begin with? I've seen that show. I don't think it's very funny...

Ugh... the flashback when Saya is like twelve is something way too Japanese to see without revolting... and I'm supposed to be used to their shit. I can't imagine how someone who isn't would feel.

There is an amazing scene in both the comic and animated feature of All-Star Superman that really shows off the ideas Bob has about Lex and his resentment towards 'the alien'. It's the one were he is pumping iron and talking to clark in prison, it really lines up with The Rock thing.

Yeah, I was squirming the whole time and this is coming from someone who has seen A Serbian Film.

I also think the Rock would make a great Luthor. It'd be Lex Luthor as Watchmen's Ozymandias--the pinnacle of human mental and physical ability.

Um could somebody please tell me what kite is?

How the hell do you even plagiarize a apology.

Kind of a shame that they didn't really kill off brian, but alas the god of status quo had to be appeased.

Man of steel 2 is starting to sound less and like a movie in its own right and more like a prequel to a justice league movie.

Brian's "death" had me asking "why? Why? Why not all of them?"

I didn't honestly get the big deal, because it's Family Guy. But still, it was an interesting "gotcha." In that it actually got people.

I have no idea what's up with Shia, but it seems DC is hell-bent on making a Justice League movie even if they have to forgo all buildup.

What on Network TV is? I suppose he uses the term "humour" in a relative sense.

Oh, I forgot about that, but it was pretty good.

You definitely have... interesting tastes in what you think Lex Luthor should be.

...

Yeah, I think he could be Luthor. Can you imagine him in a fitted suit? Hell, say what you will about the Daredevil movie, Michael Clark Duncan did work decently as a slightly slimmed down Kingpin. All you need is a director willing to effectively force Johnson to speak in a more eloquent (or even a forced eloquent) voice.

the idea of the rock as lex luther made me pause the video and laugh to myself for a worrying amount of time. I would totally support that casting.

Hey Bobby, His name is Green Lantern *John Stewart*, Not the "Black GL" That is not the 1st time you did "that" when mentioning him.

You know the Not a Racist towards black americans, killer of GL corp, destroyer of govt property and his own movie franchise.

The Marine, guy who used his construction expertise to design the watchtower, 2nd oldest earthborn GL, and one of top instructors of the GL corp

Come to think of it, since MCD is no longer with us, Johnson would be a pretty good Kingpin. Especially since they're working on a Daredevil series.

Oh, Christ...

I found A Serbian Film in the bin at the video shop once. It was only about nine crowns/barely one dollar. I bought it and threw it in a river, to rid mankind of at least one copy of that abomination. It felt as if it was giving of lethal psionic radiation, and I can only hope I got it off my hands before I sustained permanent damage.

I dearly hope I will never have to stare into the horrid abyss that is the Kite DVD... Disposing of that would likely be my last sacrifice.

Although I'll have to find a better solution than throwing it in the river. I don't want the sea draugar eventually mailing the cursed thing back to me.

Wait how the hell do you plagiarize a apology?
also what's kite?

He worte part of a script for something and was caught plagiarizing from Ghost World's Cartoonist Daniel Clowes and then plagiarized part of the apology, and was caught again.

I usually can download the video with my Galaxy S3, but it keeps reloading the page instead of downloading the video. Can one of the admins please see what's wrong? And yes I'm a premium member already.

For a compilation of shorter notes, this was a fairly satisfying episode. You have my blessing to do this again anytime you're pressed for time.

Kite looked too depressing for me so I skipped that anime. I don't think I'll watch the LA adaptation either.

Nah, a part of the Kingpin character is his girth (to which he has a complex about), which the late Mr. Duncan had in the form of extremely large... everything. Granted it was all muscle, but if he was wearing a suit, he'd look more fat than buff. Johnson's body doesn't quite match the consistency to suggest that given his broader shoulders.

Could you imagine Duncan as Luthor though? That would be interesting, if only to hear the internet racists go berserk

The Rock as Luthor is one of the worst suggestions I have heard in a long time. I get the feeling Bob just want the movie to be as bad as possible.

Here is a better suggestion: Corey Stoll

But really. I could have named almost anyone and they would have been better.

I don't know about you, but last time I checked, Jon Stewart was Jewish.

BOOM!

Kite was an OVA from the 90s that sort of acted like a prototype for the later OVA and anime series Mezzo Forte. Not the same franchise, but the same creators. Here's an internet critic giving a more in depth analysis/play it up for yuks.

Ok, forcing Batman into a Superman sequel was ok, but still a stupid idea. But still could be a good movie. Now, if what Bob said is true, they are just pushing every single character into it to rush out a JL movie for 2015. Is it me or is this a really stupid thing to do? How will they ever do any of the characters just like Marvel did with their characters. DC are rushing it - and every new bit of information on the BvS movie makes me less interested and more looking forward to it bombing to death.

Another year, another round of the junk drawer. Lesee what we got...

Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers - I honestly did not know that. Huh.

The Resurrection of Brain Griffin - Can you say "cheap attention grabber"? Or maybe I'm just still bitter that the same sort of thing was done (much better in my honest opinion) on "South Park", and yet the still returned to the status quo in the next f***ing episode. Also, I'm hesitant about them crossing "Family Guy" and "The Simpsons" but I guess my curiosity will get the better of me...

Your take on Lex Luthor- That sounds... interesting. At least it's give him a bit more character...

That's all for now, unless I can think of anything else I want to say (which is highly doubtful).

That bit on "The Beef" was too funny.

And can DC/Warner Bros just say they're making a Justice League movie? Seriously, with the 'cameo' list they keep adding to, it doesn't sound like they're just making a Superman-Batman crossover. Are we supposed to be that stupid to not see what they're doing, or are they just too afraid to actually say it?

That being said, would LOVE to see the Rock play Lex. Really solid idea IMHO, though you're right that it would really get the 'Net freaking out over in (both for and against).

The anime was amazing. Great story and has probably one of the most evil lines ever (in the dubbed version) used in an anime film.

"You'll never understand how much watching other people's pain gets me off. Hearing their screams and knowing that I have the power of a god."

It was picked up and used in "Pretty Toy" by Velvet Acid Christ. Absolutely evil line, love it.

But a live action?

ehhh..

uh...

no....

Nice to see Bob dipping back into the Junk Drawer once again. Just hope he hasn't come down with the convention bug like Linkara did.

Need to see Wolf of Wall Street before it leaves theaters.

Haven't seen 2 Broke Girls but, then again, I could give half a rat's ass what's on CBS so I've gotta abstain.

Also, people getting their nipples in a twist about stuff like that... please, seek professional help or find a better hobby to waste your time.

Didn't know about the Rescuers/Rescue Rangers trivia but I knew about the Indiana Jones tidbit.

Kite? Never heard of it. Need to do some research on that topic.

Shia LaBeouf... You know what? Not to be that guy but, in regards to his douche-bag acts of stupidity, I'm just gonna leave this here.

Brian's back? Yeah, that was quick but I haven't really been into Family Guy that much. Especially after seeing the one episode where Meg vents her frustrations towards her family and their cruelty but decides to be their punching bag after seeing that, without her, they degenerate into total pieces of shit.

Yeah.

Maybe I got the message wrong on that episode but, still...

Seth MacFarlane, when you promote a message like that, whether its intended to be funny or not, me thinks its time to quit this shit show and find something better to do with your fucking time.

UGH! The ongoing rumor mill on the production of Superman/Batman is making me lose even more faith in its production and its handlers. Then again, I had little faith going into this.

Although, I am sold on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson on being Lex Luthor. In All-Star Superman (a comic book series I highly recommend to any fan of Superman or anyone looking for something fun yet touching), Lex's inferiority complex was well documented even on the physical level. Plus, it would be cool to see The Rock pull off another villain role.

ITS BEEN FAR TO LONG! i really miss these junk drawer episodes. It gives me my biweekly dose of bob along with satisfying my stumber attention span.

Interesting episode, though I'd like to have heard more about Shia LeBeouf, since I am only peripherally aware of whatever's going on with him (stole a script, stole an apology, I dunno). If anyone could have made me show interest in whatever that twerp's problem is, it's Bob Chipman.

The Gentleman:
Could you imagine Duncan as Luthor though? That would be interesting, if only to hear the internet racists go berserk.

Why wouldn't they revolt for Dwayne Johnson? I mean, his skin ain't that color because he tans.

Oh well, if I'm going to make fun of racists, I should probably be going at it from the "how weird is it to think a fictional character has a race" angle anyway.

My heart is kinda easily hooked by many types of media, so I go for more lighthearted things. Nodame Cantabile is more my type of anime.

Oh, yes... The Lex Luthor whose "evil genius" concocted plots involving things like "flying landmines" (apparently no one at Silver-Age DC realized there was any significance to that whole "land" part of "landmine") was so much more interesting than the one who's actually, y'know, relevant.

I'm sold on the idea of Dwayne Johnson as Lex, especially the way Bob described it. But then again Bob did go on to say that Silver Age Lex was somehow better than the modern version... yeah, I think Bob needs to turn in his geek card for that one.
