Maybe now, but it was historically more in the favor of men in ancient times. Women always know their children, but unless I woman is faithful to one man, he doesn't know which kids are his.

Patriarchy is fake news, put out by the Matriarchy.  But feminism existed in ancient Greek mythology too, think Artemis and Athena.  Artemis was a man-hater.

kinda disappointed from the look of things. I don't care much for batman and superman, while I prefer batman more, its only due to certain actors and how they act or voice him I enjoyed.
What disappointed me was the idea of there actually being a live action aquaman to enjoy, just for the movie to bomb. Lot of people consider aquaman a lame hero, and the golden age aquaman, he was lame. But seeing him in the JLU series and liking his redesign, i hoped for someone to pick up on that and realize that was the best way to portray aquaman. And I thought they had it with Jason Momoa, he looked the part, and Momoa is a good actor.

But if all looks of is as expected from curren DC, you know, one good here and there and a bunch of crap movies any other time (the opposite of marvel) then its not very encouraging them making him badass.

I don’t like DV in general with exceptions. I loved Adam west Batman hard the dark knight rapist voice Batman we got now. Thought joker was stupid and still do. Suicide squad was bad man of steel was alright, I’m in the minority for thinking WW was a solid C movie. And justice league was flat out meh. Not bad but not good. It was just meh.

DC is trying so hard to be dark and gritty and serious they’re losing themselves. But then again Batman has been their poster child for ages and I’ve hated him for virtually my whole life.

I dont Want DC to fail but I dont care if they succeed. Except Batman stuff, id love to see that end.

Just kill joker
As a kid, I only got to peek at Batman comics at a friend's house, and never actually read an entire episode that I can remember.  But I thought he was one of the most interesting comic characters.  He had just the right amount of spooky edge, demonic in appearance, and a little scary.  I wasn't familiar with him enough to know for sure if he was supposed to represent good or evil.  I leaned towards thinking he was a good guy, but some adult told me he was evil.  But then, even with the minimum of knowledge I had about him, I'm pretty sure I knew way more than whoever the adult was that told me he was evil.

I still think he's potentially the most interesting superhero character of all, but except for Batman Begins, he could get some better writers.

DC has been terrible with its shared universe films. Marvel at least gave its major characters their own feature films first, each of which can (mostly) stand on their own. With DC we get a Superman movie followed immediately by throwing Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman together in a single film. Like, hello, these are DC's 3 biggest characters and you're not even giving two of them their own film before the crossover? What the fuck, DC? What. The. Fuck.
Batman vs Superman struck me as a competitive attempt to counter Marvel's Captain America: Civil War.  Maybe an attempt to capitalize on the theme of Superheroes fighting among themselves.  It may have seemed more original if Marvel hadn't got there first.  But even then, Batman and Superman fighting each other goes against my perception of Super crime fighters being too smart to be distracted from their common interest.  It never made sense to me, and Superman vs Batman isn't even a reasonably fair match to begin with.

If I ever vote again I'll be a one-issue voter - gun control! I know it's likely too late to put that genie back in the bottle, but damn, something has to break one way or another.
Me?  I'm going to build a fortified bunker and arm it with a Howitzer.

Justice League  meh/10

The story doesn't hang together very well.  The plot is simple, and moves toward the obvious outcome, but the movie relies on a lot of unnecessary fighting without much character development.  It reminded me of a Transformers movie heavy on bashing and smashing, and not much else.  Lots of special effects, but it comes off as irrelevant.  Sometimes they fight in a cave.  Then an abandoned factory.  Then a forest.  Is this taking place on Earth or another planet?  Who knows?  It doesn't seem to be important.  But superheroes go flying into cliffs, and keep coming back for more.

The actual high points are very spread out.  There may be about 10 scenes in the movie that are good for an outright laugh or poignant.  But they are usually brief and last only 5 or 10 seconds.  It's good enough to kill some time, but you won't leave the theater feeling all that impressed.

Not up to us guys.  It is a man-control system invented by women.  But the feminists are working hard to kill it.

Maybe now, but it was historically more in the favor of men in ancient times. Women always know their children, but unless I woman is faithful to one man, he doesn't know which kids are his.

Hobbies and Photos / The Village of Thorne Bay Alaska in Flight Simulator
« Last post by SGOS on November 17, 2017, 06:33:43 PM »
Having been away from flight simulator scenery design for so long, I had to relearn how to use the tools.  Being out of practice, this normal day and a half job took me 5 days.  I declared myself finished today.  I could probably do it again right now in 2 days.  In addition to static objects, I have learned to add boat traffic, so I've got a small fishing fleet coming and going all day and night, making this place, Thorne Bay, Alaska, kind of an interesting place to land. 

Thorne Bay exists in reality.  I can say I at least put it where it's supposed to be, not withstanding the total license I've given myself to put anything I want there.  Sometimes I model from photos.  Sometimes it's even recognizable as the actual place.  At a minimum, I attempt to get across a general idea.  If a ferry stops there, I put it in.  If there is a cannery there, I'll build one, etc.
