    Louis CK's "apology" is a joke. Sure you "asked" first (sometimes), but the women sure as hell didn't say yes.

    It was also weirdly narcissistic. How many times did he need to mention that people admired him or looked up to him?

    Sooooooo....Justice League....better than expected, but has its flaws as one would expect.

    Probably the most annoying was how badly (and puzzlingly WHY) was Henry Cavill’s face a CGI mess? Even in scenes where CGI seemingly wasn’t even needed. I don’t get that at all.

    Gal was as dreamy as always. Momoa was pretty funny, the Flash grew on me...had a few hilarious parts.

    Overall I was entertained.

    The reviews for Justice League were disappointing but I’ll still watch it this weekend since I’ll have some free time. Wonder Woman was fantastic so I’ll see it for her alone.

    I found out the Henry Cavill CGI issues....apparently when Joss Wheden came back to do the reshoots Henry Cavill had a full mustache for another role so they had to alter his face. If I’m Zack Snyder I go to my grave bitter over that. It’s amazingly distracting in many scenes.

    She’s dreamy......sigh. Pretty sure they shot some scenes just to showcase her ass. Pretty gratuitous in at least one scene.

    The Punisher was fantastic.

    It got poo pood by some reviewers...but I dont think they were up for it after Vegas and Texas...which is understandable I suppose from a timing standpoint.

    Looking past that...it was really well done.

    Punisher #3 down. Daaaaaaaamn....I’m leaning towards calling this the most gritty, violent and best acted Marvel series yet. I hope it’s still on the upswing for the season.

    Oooh. Jealous. I was all ready to buy a 4K last year when we unexpectedly got a free used LED TV. So I haven't been able to justify the expense since then. If we still had our old LCD, I could probably make the case, but now I might have to wait another year or two.

    Can never argue with 'free', heh. Been picking up 4k blurays for a while now but when I picked up that 4k oppo bluray player was basically down hill to finally buying one. Plus the 450 price drop last week. Moving the 8 year old kuro elite into the bedroom. Which feels a little funny have a 60" tv in one's bedroom, heh. Still love the picture.

    Thought about watching this series. To be honest I'm sick of all super hero movies and TV shows. Nothing is original

    Defenders was great! I paused Punisher to watch Defenders first. Now onto Punisher #5.

    What exactly are you expecting? These are defined characters with established origins and back stories.

    Uhhhhh yeah. If you’re a big home theater person, streaming doesn’t hold a candle typically. Me, I’ve come to loath physical media so it’s become less of a thing for me.

    Usiel I think is still holding onto that use case. Initially, Blue Ray was the primary reason I bought my PS3/4. Now, limited gaming and mostly streaming with the occasional disk watch for things I can’t stream.

    The problem is every 2nd movie and TV show is based on a comic book superhero. They are just redoing the same thing over and over. I've been watching quite a few international films lately to get away from the commercial films done here. There are alot of good movies from a round the world. Recently the wife and i started watching a Danish TV series called The Bridge. Its not bad.

    Avenger Infinity War trailer up. Looks pretty boss. Should be a fun movie with just about every Marvel character ever created jammed into it.
    << But this is the first order of business. In 2 weeks.

    I get your point, but the genre is extremely successful and popular and I don’t agree it’s the same thing over and over. For the most part they’re quality movies/shows across the board with some exceptions (F4, Inhumans, Luke Cage was average to me, I’m sure I’m forgetting something). With so much good subject matter, this will continue another 10 years I think. It’s when the current stars are aged and unable to continue where things will get interesting. I was reading Marvel has like 20 scripts lined up for that next wave and I’d wager we’ll see some break from the traditional superhero at some point. Punisher is a great beginning to that IMO. Check out the New Mutants trailer....looks like a horror movie not a superhero story.

    If you didn’t grow up loving comics and sci-fi, I can understand why it’s overkill to you, but they’re trying to craft a pretty elaborate universe. Try other things. As you mention some GREAAAAAT foreign stuff out there in both TV and movies.
