I'm now scared people think I'm on the forum 24/7 :o

You're not?

I pretty much presumed Scarlet is the official spirit lounging in the halls of Fantasy Faction by now, haha.  ;D

Saw a post in Facebook today about Jorg.

I won’t touch the broken empire series because I’ve heard Jorg is not a nice guy

Is this the end of grimdark 😀
To this I say "good riddance", leave him to those who appreciate him.

There are many series "I won't touch", for different reasons.

There will always be different genres.

(sorry, not in a good mood after reading that and the 'escapism' thread, but I'll still keep this post)

I'm usually the opposite. I usually like morally ambiguous characters like Jorg, or in films and television Heisenberg, Thomas Shelby, Michael Corleone, and some other drug dealers and mafias protagonists as well. The way they exercised their power are absolutely intoxicating, I think.

I've always loved loved loved friendship in fantasy. The most recent one I'm reading is probably The Ketty Jay crew, the Gentlemen Bastards, and I put much of duos friendship in my short stories/ novel as well.

I've just watched The Godfather and The Godfather II for the first time ever, and man, especially the first movie had to be one of the best films I've ever watched to date. The acting was so powerful that I could definitely feel the aura of power coming off Vito Corleone, especially when the people who came to him have to kiss his hand, like a subject paying respects to the king. The way Michael Corleone executes his plan near the end of the movie was so calm and coldblooded it actually chilled me, and he gave off the vibes of the man who will become the next Godfather, the ruthless ruler of the Italian mobsters who would totally crush anyone who stood in his path. No wonder this is a classics, no matter how many years have passed this movie deserved to be re watched by the new and old generations alike, I think.

On that note I've also watched Jumanji 3. Although not as original as the second movie, this one is also one hell of a fun ride of a movie, and I would definitely love to see the fourth and further installments of the movies whenever they come. This could certainly be the next successful franchise as I see it. 

I'd be fine with anything with a moderate amount of action that doesn't sucks, haha.

Congratulations Eli! So this had been the secret you've been eager to share but could not. If it was me I'd be dying to share this to the world too, haha.  ;D So glad for you getting into foreign markets, one day when you're rich and famous maybe I could fly to Iceland and have my book autographed by the famous Eli Freysson.

Car: had to take back to garage it wasn’t fix properly but it’s running okay now. I think I look for a newer car in no rush through.

I’ve got a job too 😀

Congratulations, Eclipse! Now you're working two jobs, that one and the one here as the routine threadcromancer.  ;D

I've finished the second book of the Ketty Jay series, The Black Lung Captian. 4.5 stars. It's even better than the first book, and I am definitely anticipating on how good the third one is going to be.  ;D

I'm also starting Renegades, a YA series about superheroes.

It seemed like paranormal romance story? I'm still all hands for deleting advertising posts, though Bea.  ;D *cheer malevolently*

Let's see if this fell into some sort of defaming charges, if it is someone who is offended enough by this could notify the authorities and press court charges on the publisher of this article, possibly leading to fine and even jail time. *happy thoughts*

So I was mostly wrong. Birds of Prey tanked but most of the people who saw it were men. Presumably insulting those who read the comics didn't stop them watching it.

Found this interesting statistic. It does seem comic book movies are generally more popular with men than women.


Also that BoP had a R rating whereas most Marvel movies had a PG-13 rating, which is a key differentiator because of kids/family. Kids are a big reason for presence of accompanying adults in audience, which BoP didn't take advantage of.

Joker was the only R rated movie to do well at box office and I'd put that down to familiarity of character plus Dark Knight movie's popularity. BoP had mostly unknown characters outside of comic book community...probably similar to why Suicide Squad was also a dud.

This, especially that the movie itself is a kind of continuation from the Suicide Squad, which a lot of people thought was pretty terrible. Besides Harley Quin, people also doesn't know any of the other characters so it lacked the star power of Suicide Squad too. I for one saw how the posters looked and just from that lose most of my interest in the flick.

1000th post and it's been a pleasure. One of the best forums and best posters I've ever interacted with online! It's been brilliant.

I somehow never realized I signed up in 2015. Always thought it's been a year or two.

Edit: I'm a Auror too. Bender "Squint-Eye" Rodriguez!

I know right? I thought I signed up to this place like a year or two ago, then realized that it's more like 4 years at the very least. Times flies when you're having fun, I guess.  8)

Altered Carbon season 2 starts on Netflix UK on 27-2-20

Oh wow, it's almost here already! I totally loved season 1, but I'm really feeling sure about Anthony Mackie as the lead for season 2. Let's see how it goes and if he is up to the role of Takeshi Kovacs, eh?  8)

Oh wow, Alex, do you shorn (if that's the term at all) the lambs yourself? That seemed really nice and hand on, I'd say.

Oh wow that actually seemed pretty nice. A shame they won't ship to my country, though.
