Hey Jose, if you have (which I imagine you have) watched Batman: Under The Red Hood, what did you think about it? I absolutley LOVED IT! 😀
I actually haven’t seen it yet. I did like the comics the movie was based on though.
Well it is definitley a good movie to watch, very enjoyable, a ver good script from Judd Winick, btw, nice pic of Trinity from the Matrix 🙂
Such a sad ending.
Just like life.
I was surprised with how emotional it got towards the end. Very well done.
Was this real or fanmade?
It’s fanmade. Even has its own Wiki page.
Wow, if this is real I want to watch it!
Rorshach is an animal lover Ha!
“John can give you cancer, or turn into a car.” Ha!
This has been out for a while but it’s pretty funny 🙂
SDCC 2010 cosplay.
DAAAAAMNNN! Those are some fine lookin’ ladies!
Ok, somebody needs to go through those 850 pics and pick out all the babes. 🙂
I would but I’d probably get lost since there is so many
The Supergirl in the large pic looks like a slice of heaven.
I have a friend who is a big Star Wars fan, and I would love to see the expression on his face if he saw the pic of those 2 hot slave Princess Leia’s….
I like my women with a bit more…class.
She looks like the nice teacher that you would instantly find hot on sight.
Classy in public. Sassy in the sack.
I bet she purrs like a tiger and howls like a hyena!
I’d give her all my scooby snacks
Still going through the pics. This one is all sorts of hot.
Alright, my wife just came over and asked what I’m laughing at. You guys gotta stop posting funny shit.
Yeah, but is she classy?
Probably not. Looks like she’s been around. You’d probably need to double bag it with her.
Man there is way to many pictures. I think I stopped halfway through.
Oooooh, Daphne. Very, very nice.
Why isn’t she in my life?
Walt Flanagan was right!
BTW, Thanks for starting a new thread Jose!
If I had to wait a minute for the other thread to load each time– every time I wanted to post (like I did)… I would have slit my wrists in protest. (And I have a fast internet connection!)
So I thank you, my family thanks you– and Blue Cross thanks you. 🙂
Ya, that happens when there are too many youtube links on a thread. It was taking forever on my end too.
Enjoy the quick loading times of this thread…while it lasts. 🙂
watching ICHI on hulu thumbs up from me i always liked the blind swordman movies and this is a
nice addition with a female twist
hey j and the rest of the let the right one in fans;
what did you think of the let me in trailer?
Looks like Let the Right One In. Also looks completely unnecessary. I wont be seeing it.
Yeah, I can’t believe I just got the original on Blu Ray and now they’re doing a shitty US remake.
I say “Let me out…of the theater”
why is it shitty? the director is by all accounts competent i havent seen the either of the movies but comparing the trailers they both look well done and chloe moretz is pretty good actress.
i can understand preferring the original over the copy but the remake is automatically shitty?
OK, although I think Jose would agree with my sentiments, kurumais… You got me.
Let’s change my “shitty” comment to:
“lacking in ORIGINAL intent”
“possibly shitty– like 99.9% of all US remakes are”
BTW kurumais– I beleve it was YOUR suggestion that prompted my remembering I hadn’t seen the original and then buy it… So work with me here. 🙂
Well, Jose said it best. If it’s a shot for shot remake (like Psycho) then it’s definately unnecessary. If it’s an “americanized” version, or a version to appeal to people who don’t like subtitles, then why would I watch it, having seen and enjoyed the original? As Insiderman said, Hollywood doesn’t have a sterling track record with remaking foreign films, and nobody wants to see a shitty remake of a good film. I’d honestly feel the same way if there was a remake of a classic film like The Godfather being made.
Well said– as usual– Morlock.
I guess I wouldn’t say it looks shitty but more wholly unnecessary. The original came out not that long ago so updating it isn’t really needed. Other than a few changes this appears to look like a somewhat straight up adaption which in my eyes is not needed because the movie was perfect the way it was. So yes it might not be shit because the source material was very strong but it is an unnecessary remake unless you are too lazy to read during a movie
And if anybody wants to know how hot it has been in LA for the last two months… And how much it costs when your fridge is freezing over and refuses to turn off– The EXACT amount is $413.45 for 60 days.
That doesn’t include the cost of the NEW fridge, of course. ($883– and that’s with free delivery and a 10% discount.)
To put this into perspective, I could have bought 324 OVERPRICED Marvel comics with that money and suffered through 2,268 NEEDLESS ADS stuffed in the back of each book so the HOUSE OF IDEAS could “justify” charging me an extra dollar per comic.
Hey, Marvel– here’s a story for you!
When I was a a kid, I got a $5 a week allowance. Today that would buy me ONE comic book. After tax, I would have just enough change left over to phone my parents to come BAIL ME OUT OF JAIL because I was caught breaking into the local pharmacy stealing drugs to sell– so I could feed my comic book habit.
How many comics will you be printing every month when ZERO kids can afford to read them anymore… And your current customers are all 90 years old and pissing themselves in Nursing Homes?
How many are you going to be selling then? YOU FUCKERS!
One of the great things about living in Illinois is that we don’t tax dated periodicals. But ya, my electric bill has been ridiculous as of late too. Thank god there is no such thing as global warming or else we would really be fucked. Oh wait…
I didn’t you do what I did for comics as a kid.
I robbed the weaker kid coming outta the store, simple and easy.
@ D…. that was YOU?
As a kid I was really screwed when it came to money, i had a double addiction of comics and Dungeons and Dragons, compared to the cost of a TSR rulebook or module a comic book was pretty reasonable.
Of course kids theses days seem to have an endless supply of cash to buy whatever they want, which is amazing to me since none of them seem to bother getting any kind of job, even in the Summer,at least in my family.
Most crack dealers– even teenage crack dealers– do their business on the sly.
Hey Jose, i just came across this anime called detroit metal city (DMC), its about this guy who has a double life, one as a death metal lead singer/guitarist, and the other is this sissy clumsy nerd. Its by far one of the most hilarious animes i have seen. The japs even made a life action adaptation out of it which came out last year. Its really different from all the animes i have seen. check it out let me know what u think of it.
By the way…i just read x factor 207….its good to see that peter david is bringing us back to the main story again…and non of that second coming bullshit. i good read it was.
hey can anyone point me to another peter david book that is awesome,,,im sad to say that i have only read his x factor series…. really interested to c what he has done before.
Anyone wanna feel like a little bitch?
And he actually does…..
While aimed at Deemar, anyone can put in their two cents worth.
Hi, I saw Best of Archie featuring Dan DeCarlo HC at a mainstream book store today.I was intrigued but I don’t know if I want to spend $30+ on it. Does anyone know of any plans for it to be released in paperback down the road?
Also, the next thing I might finally get around to checking out is Unknown Soldier. Does anyone have any opinions on it?
Edward, IDW is SLOW to release trade paperbacks of their Hardcovers– but they do normally do it… Maybe 10 to 12 months later?
Dreamland has it for 35% OFF– $16.24!!!
I would buy the hardcover for that price– skip the GN version! (You could almost get 2 for 1 at $16.24!)
Unknown Solider is a great series– very dense and sometimes a little slow. I only read the trades so I don’t know how the book’s recent cancellation will affect the story.
Does it look like the story will be finished? Maybe a floppy reader could help us out!
I forgot to say I OWN the Dan DeCarlo HC already. I prefer the HC for books I expect to always collect and keep.
Thanks for the heads up Insideman!I just placed my order!
Anyone up for seeing this?
Uggg…another James Cameron film so soon? I didn’t see Avatar so I guess I won’t be seeing this. Just another FX heavy flick with no story.
Damn, I wonder who really did kill captain Alex?
THIS IS SOME HARDCORE NOIR!
Just when I thought he was dead to the world he makes this announcement:
This is a man in desperate need of an editor.
Frank trying– and failing– to look young and hip!
Frank being Frank. A praody of himself.
Say what you will about his writing; the man knows how to pose for a pic.
The man single handedly created and destroyed his version of Batman.
created with The Dark Knight Returns
destroyed with The Dark Knight Strikes Again and All-Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder.
And the destructuion will continue 😦
Frank is one of my comic book heroes and I’ll defend most of his work up to and including DK2. But what gets me is where he says Batman fighting the Riddler is silly, but his story about fighting the “existential threat” that’s out to destroy us stars a lone “crimefighter”. Yeah,that’s the ticket… (that’s actually one of the things that bugs the hell out of me about ASB+R but that’s another thread)
Also,I don’t believe that he pushed Batman “as far as he could go”. I’m with the posters who think DC told him no.
Just got done watch Valhalla Rising, I have to say it was OK, pretty decent, not as entertaining as Bronson and I have not seen the Pusher trilogy so I don’t know how all these movies compare.
When you really think about it, are there REALLY any likable characters in Watchmen? If I had to choose someone I guess I’d choose Dr. Manhattan. He’s the only one who really does any good in the story, but even he can be some what annoying at times.
In the flick, I thought Rorschach was likable in a way. He was the only one who stood up for the common man and tried to do the right thing. Manhattan killed him to keep it all a secret.
In the comic, you’re really not supposed to like anyone. They are all flawed to the extreme and none of them are really justified in what they do.
Alan Moore gave an interview in Amazing Heroes way back and said basically, he was trying to imagine what these ppl would be like if they were real and IF these people WERE real he wouldn’t want to be in the same room with any of them too long.
I’d choose Nite Owl. Because he seems the nicest of the bunch.
To me Watchmen is a cautionary tale of not only is dressing up in a costume and beating up criminals illegal, it’s crazy.
I try to defend this book as much as possible even if Moore won’t, but I have to hand it to Moore he tries to avoid Watchmen as much as possible and treating it like a monstrous offspring. Where as if it was Bendis or Miller they would pimp that shit for every dollar it was worth.
Hey,all us fans should be glad THIS movie was never made…
Like I said, if Miller wrote it he would hype the shit out of it even if it’s nothing like the graphic novel, like the movie that are based on Miller’s works, but that’s for good reason because his most recent works are shit.
Oh, and that script was stupid, and nothing compared to the art of Moore and Gibbons.
Fucking Bendis! The Red Hulk, really!?
Looks wicked lame. I prefer the Pink Hulk.
I just came home from the movie Inception…WHAT AN AWESOME MOVIE IT WS!!! OMG I LOVED IT HARDCORE!!!!!!!!
It was an amazing movie. I Loved it!
I got quoted on another blog’s post…kinda.
Dude,on one hand that’s way cool,but on another they should’ve used your name or least initial!
CONSIDER IT TAKEN CARE OF.
I can’t stand articles that don’t give PROPER attribution… I know he/she gave a general link to the site but to ascribe the quote to an anonymous CCW*TV Doctor Who fan was lazy at best… Especially given your weekly Doctor Who episode threads and your intense discussion and promotion of the show in general… Plus at least one MAJOR VID between you and Elliott on the subject as well– right?
Anyway, I hope you don’t mind that I set the record COMPLETELY straight:
” Red Eye Rogue- That “fan” was CCW*TV co-founder, consummate culture critic and masterful Blog Overseer Jose Melendez who– through his weekly postings– helped people understand the MAGNITUDE of Doctor Who Season 5 and the deliriously wonderful contributions of new show runner Stephen Moffat.
Check out the CCW*TV Blog at the link above or the weekly videos Jose and CCW*TV co-founder Elliott Serrano tape on their dedicated You Tube channel: http://www.youtube.com/comicculturewarrior ”
There is actually a LIMIT to the number of words you can use in Red Eye Rogue blog’s response area. Thank god THIS blog didn’t have that or I would have been FUCKED a long time ago. 😉
No, I don’t mind at all. And thank you for doing that. Really. I was going to comment on it myself but…I don’t know. I would never not credit someone with a quote I used on here and that Red Eye blog LOOKED a bit more professional than this one so I really didn’t want to get into it. I mean, the commenters name WAS “Comic Culture Warrior” so do not know why they assumed it was just some random fan. At the end of the day I guess I am kinda flattered they used my “opinion” to sum up what they, too, thought. Though people should ALWAYS get credit where credit is due. I am a bit more reserved and humble than I appear to be on the show I guess.
Thanks again for taking the time to write that.
Not a problem. I would do it 100 times in a heartbeat.
Working in a biz where your average “friend” would bend his OWN MOTHER over a pool table to win favor with JJ Abrams– I tend to jump at any chance to help or “defend” the QUALITY PEOPLE in my life.
saw batman under the hood, it was a good movie. perhapes too much action for me and not enough charecter moments. i still liked it and was very pleased with the voices of the joker and batman. im tired of kevin conroy. hes getting to old and weird sounding when it comes to batman. I read ROBW #4. loved that but hate how thomas wayne was colored different near the end making it confusing. Wish bruce would have said something in the issue.
Wonder woman was decent. i’ll stick with it.
JL generation lost was a great read this week. still hard to see how they can drag this story out for so long.
GLC was awsome! great touching moment with henshaw when he was talking about him not being invited to the death of the universe. i felt bad for him when he said that 😦
still got to read yours truly jack the ripper and dust to dust do androids dream electric sheep.
OH! im deciding to stick with green lantern. larfleeze is back and i just love the cleverness of geoff johns and that charecter. the whole santa thing was funny. Mankes art didnt piss me off this time. the faces where decent lol. also the blue mascot visited livonia michigan! i looked out the window tho and i geuss i missed it :(. anywaise the story IMO is picking up both in GL and i have a feeling in BD #7.
and to mis-quote paul simon we’re gonna get ya drunk then we’re gonna find ya a woman,then we’ll find me one too…
That would be nice.
Oh Neal Patrick Harris.
He was the voice of Nightwing in Batman: Under the Red Hood.
Yes! And he was also the voice of that Spiderman cartoon from MTV (?)
But,uh…Comic Culture sing along! I know somebody’s got another good one in ’em!
an’ yeh..Adam Hughes,baby!
I NEVER get tired of the Buffy musical. I have said it before and I will say it again: It is one of the BEST things I have EVER seen on television…period.
I 100% agree. I have it cued and ready to play on my computer any time.
Well Jose and Ed, y”all have just kept me from posting what I was gonna post up for my Mellow Monday contribution.
Anyway… love those songs. As a matter of fact they’re from my favorite episode of Buffy. Ironically, I hate musicals. Go figure, huh? Man I miss Buffy.
tryin’ to keep the sing along comics related
now,I know there’s been at least TWO marvel comics starring Alice Cooper,but I’m not sure that’s up everyone’s alley.I AM a big fan of West Side Story…
Ah! Here we go!
love it to death by alice still rules..
They sang the Teen Titans theme so this counts. 😛
they are going to be at the new york comic con anime fest in october
i remember when they hit big in japan in the 90s with “pure asian” damn they were huge
They still are pretty big as far as I know but, ya, not nealy the epic hugeness that they once were. A few years ago they did an American tour. I have 3 of their cds and still listen to them every now and then.
In Japan they just go by Puffy. I guess they needed to add AmiYumi when they came to the states cause of P. Diddy or some such bullshit.
They were known by Puffy here in America too, until P. Diddy said something. That’s when they added the AmiYumi. I used to listen to them pre-Teen Titans. They’re still cool.
They’re wicked hot.
That’s an understatement! 🙂
Wow, did not expect Puffy trivia to come from you. I guess after all this time you still have the ability to surprise me. That’s actually very good to know.
And yes, they are still oh so very cool. Agreed.
Oh ya, this video is made that much more awesome by a guest appearance by mother fucking Guitar Wolf! The video’s audio fucks up too with about 10 second to go at the end.
I can’t sleep
All you need is a good pillow, here is one for ya that will make you sleep and dream very very soon:
Yes that will help me sleep better.
Oh I need an Old Ones mattress
finished reading yours truely, jack the ripper #2. Its interesting. i feel its kind of rush with the conversations and the plot but overall its interesting. i geuss the next issue is the last and i will be getting it and see how it all plays out.
so finally saw LET THE RIGHT ONE IN excellent flick beautifully shot some shots i wanted to stick my hand into the screen feel that bracing cold and pure snow
defintely one of the creepiest movies i have ever seen im not big on gore so i like horror movies like this much better
i also like that the movie was actually quite different from what i got from the trailer in terms of the 2 kids characters and their relationship definitely more creep and horrific in the movie. i guess with all these fluffy vampires around i was expecting a kindler gentler monster.
but to be honest i dont think it was so good that it was untouchable in terms of a remake or a translation. and while the girl was quite good i think chloe moretz is a probably a better actress. the kid that play oskar was very good the american kid has his work cut out for him.
but to be honest when oskar was swimming in that weird sissy way i wanted to bully him too.
i do have a question about the scene with oskar’s dad and his dad’s buddy i dont want to put any spoilers or suggestions out there for folks that havent seen it
if anyone wants email me at firstname.lastname@example.org id appreciate it
if i were you i would see this movie especially before the american version comes out
One thing that I am wondering about is IF the new version will deal with…
SPOLIER ALERT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE GOING TO READ THE BOOK
…redneg s’eripmav eht
SPOILER ALERT OVER
SPOILER ALERT OVER
SPOILER ALERT OVER
GO BACK ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS
America being America I highly doubt it.
nope you cant read the book unless you can read it in the original swedish no translations or interpretations allowed
Umm…it’s the same as reading subtitles. Nice try though.
no subtitles are out too orthodoxy is in around here
I was just trying to poke fun at what may be a bit of intransience on some folks part around here im sure I was just imagining it I apologize
The way I see it with the American version where once we had one movie now we have two . you aren’t losing a movie you are gaining one . could the American version suck sure but we wont know until its out, and even if it does well we still have the original. So how are fans of the original losing out?
On top all that the author lindqvist gets Hollywood money good for him. Im always happy for folks who get Hollywood money. this is opening new doors and opportunities for him as well. I haven’t read his books or stories but from the movie he deserves it as much as any storyteller so that’s all to the good .
ok after watching let the right one in i started thinking about my favorite/best vampire flicks
here is my list not in any order
let the right one in
the original nightstalker tv movie with karl kolchak
fright night i know it goofy but a lot of fun too my brother and watched it a million times in 80s and im excited about the remake with david tenant and colin farrel mclovin as evil ed is perfect the whole cast looks really good
Let’s not forget Vamp.
i forgot about vamp but i dont think it made much of an impression because the only thing i remember about it is grace jones in the make up other then that drawing a blank
1) From Dusk ’til Dawn
3) Inter view With A Vampire
5) The Lost Boys
Let the Right One In
Bram Stoker’s Dracula
Interview with a Vampire
So, get ready CCW…..Kick Ass The Second is coming……..
Unbelievable. He basically admits to using movie ideas/plots in his stories AND HE STILL GETS WORK?!? I can’t believe the Mark Millar I admired has turned into this pile of crap.
Sad, isn’t it?
sorry, but someone had to post this eventually…
“it’s so intense”… 🙂
That guy had to be on X or shrooms
hey now, it was almost a TRIPLE rainbow! You’d lose your shit too. 😉
I guess I would.
“So Intense” lol
That guy can’t be real
Skittles should use this footage for thier “Taste the Rainbow” ads
that would be perfect, and sadly this sounds like a third of my friends in college
They must be a laugh riot
Every time I see this vid it cracks me up. wtf is he on hahaha
“full on double rainbow across the sky-i-i-ie!”
What does this mean?
I have two things to say:
1). That guy must’ve dropped a lot acid or something
2). That was too funny. I actually feel kinda bad for the dude… he probably had no clue what he was doing/saying.
Thanks for posting this Pobra! That was the most I’ve laughed that much in a while!
no problem cbdude, i can’t believe you haven’t seen this yet! This video is nearly legend at this point. i think i almost died the first time i saw it. 😛
Don’t know if any of you guys watch Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged, but this particular episode makes fun of the rainbow video towards the end! Appropriate timing! It also makes fun of internet trolls! 🙂
did anyone see that new bbc film “frequently asked questions about time travel” it was very good and i recommend it to anyone who enjoys british sci-fi as i know there are some massive doctor who fans on here.
there’s no way that I can respond to that without having somebody crack on me about the most recent deemar’s sunday funnies!!!!!
just say no phil
Got several new posts up on the Swear All You Like Blog… Including one and how Digital Comics are going to kill your comic store (at least as it is now): http://wp.me/pZr1Y-U8
Be sure to check out the site NEW MOTTO at the top of the left sidebar– kindly written by none other than the distinguished Mr. Jose Melendez himself!
I cannot stop listening to this song, I even downloaded it, I’m on a huge addiction to it:
It just means your life is a situational comedy
My life to be honest cannot be described in words 😛
Well compared to “Stefon”, I’m actually than quite sane, lol
“If your looking for a good blog look no further than Comic Culture Warrior.”
“World renowned Chicago comics vender Jose Melendez has gone all out! Geeks, Nerds, Dorks, bulimic Gerber Babies and Albino Sherpas.”
“With exciting multiple personalities with the many that make up the CCW Nation!”
Now that’s a quote
Because it’s TRUE!
boredom over 9000.
Didn’t you watch the new Boondock’s?
I missed that and Children’s Hospital. Fuck
No wonder you’re bored. Just catch on the replay later tonight. They are both worth watching tonight. Good episodes.
Will do and good to know.
Just started watching a new current anime called “eden of the East”
DAMNNNNNNN this show is rocking my world. I RARELY watch current animes but damn…
My first REGULAR CONTRIBUTOR for the Swear All You Like Blog! He’s VIDEO GAME crazy. Check him out at http://wp.me/pZr1Y-Um
And leave him some comments… I don’t want to have to spend half of tomorrow making up commenter names! 😉
video game crazy you say??? What, like this guy:
Just read this on Erik Larsen’s Twitter page. I never knew this.
“The main reason DC ditched the Eagle on WW was because they couldn’t register that eagle as a trademark–so they changed it to a stylized WW”
It’s the same reason for the yellow circle around the bat on Batman’s chest in the early 60’s.
But didn’t the change occur during issue #288, when Gene Colon and Roy Thomas took over? What happened to the trademark during the first 287 issues?
Also, I was just looking up jobs I can do from home, and I found this, in case anyone’s interested. I know most of you on here are huge anime/manga fans.
