    Seerow - I really enjoyed the first Iron Man, and Avengers. The rest are pretty good. They're certainly not horrific by any stretch.

    Also @Seerow - never heard someone wanting to move from Florida to Baltimore before. :p

    On New Year's resolutions - Sx3 could tell you - people lovvvvvvvvve to make exercise resolutions. Gyms get so many membership sign-ups in December and January it's insane. It takes 28 days to form a habit, and most people simply don't get there. You need to find a consistent time to exercise and a consistent activity that works for you. Some people can work out at home, some people need to go to a gym. Some people need a personal trainer, others know enough themselves. Some people skip the gym and do sports or a yoga class.

    You want to know the easiest way to exercise and lose some weight? Walk. Buy a pedometer and see if you can walk 10,000 steps in a day. That's really all the exercise you need. Do the stairs instead of taking the elevator.

    I agree that most of the Marvel Films are not horrific @Garth Maul. I liked both Captain American and The Avengers. I've always been more of a DC fan though. Man of Steel has my eye. Really my tastes for super heroes are warped by my beloved, wake up, go to school, save the world trope and anime.

    I love Florida and will certainly miss it if I leave. I love the sunshine and the beach. Just you wait for Feb when I'm posting the loveliest pictures of the pink flowers blooming around my house while your all up there buried in like 20ft of snow or whatever. Its a reality I've got to face eventually however. I'm like that sappy Kelly Clarkson song "Breakaway". More like moving to the eastern technology corridor between D.C. and Baltimore. Another candidate is New Mexico believe it or not.

    The MCU rules. Even though I prefer DC comics (that includes Vertigo) and animated shows, Marvel has a much better track record in the movie department, with the exception of Batman (60% of the time at least).

    As for new year's resolution, I'm really inconsistent with them, and never usually follow through with them. How 'bout this year I resolve not to post so many Robot Chicken videos. It's just too lazy and universal a response to stuff.

    I've just never gotten into the Marvel universe and so I don't tend to care much about their movies. With DC its the shows they spin off for their heroes I tend to like the most rather than the movies although the Dark Knight trilogy rules IMO. And BTW, Batman The Animated Series still owns.

    lol @Todd the Jedi, I couldn't keep that resolution either.

    Exercise was one of those resolutions that I didn't wait until the new year to make. Nothing says "wake up call" like "Your blood pressure is too high, your cholesterol is too high, your triglycerides are too high, and you need to do a fasting blood sugar test."

    Holy. ****. Yeah, looking at the calendar for the next January 1 wasn't exactly on my radar. That was two years ago; I've lost 20 pounds and feel a whole lot better. It is kind of annoying that it's suddenly hard to get time on the exercise equipment when January rolls around though.

    As far as Seerow moving; I've got too many ties to North Carolina at the moment but I'd love to move north. It's way too damn hot around here.

    I've got ties all family ties in Florida and North Carolina. But I feel I'll stay trapped in this life that I live with more than a quarter of my life wasted. I gotta make a change. I atleast have some good friends who moved up to both the DC and the Baltimore area. Unfortunately I need to be more in the middle of those and ofcourse there is the matter of actually trying to find a job.

    I have seen Superman: The Animated Series, Teen Titans Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, and Young Justice (was not a big fan). I also like the old Justice Friends cartoon and The Adventures of Superman (1950s).

    Only the ones in bold are part of the DCAU (or the Timmverse); TT and YJ exist in their own separate universes. Just saying. ;)

    -shrug.- I don't really think I mentioned the DCAU anyways. I said I liked the shows DC spins off for their heroes better. Did you know I'm an animation buff and I'll watch pretty much any actiony cartoon?

    T-minus an hour and a half according to Eastern standard time, people.



    Not that I care, because if it happens I won't be around to care, and if it doesn't, then we're all in the same place. Right? Right.

    At least Teen Titans is tangentially related to the DCAU. Then there's Static Shock, which officially is.

    @anakinfansince1983's attitude about her potentially imminent death is remarkably similar to that of the father of Woody Allen's character in Hannah and Her Sisters:

    There's only one acceptable way for the world to end...

    ...it must be demolished to make way for a new hyperspace bypass.

    I recall some show airing on the Discovery Channel within the past couple years that was supposed to be about ways the "world" could end. It was hosted by Samuel L. Jackson and really had nothing to do with the world and only really had to do with catastrophes that could potentially happen within the U.S. and the projected death toll of each (like Yellowstone erupting). As far as I can remember, pretty much every bad thing was mostly in the SE and near the California coast, with Michigan pretty much being fine in every situation. So that's promising. [face_whistling]

    The worst natural disasters that can happen here are zebra mussels and asian carp. :p

    I prefer DC as well. Though I fear I may be becoming a comic book geek. I was so far behind on the comic book movies that I crammed watching Captain America, Thor, The Amazing Spider-Man, Dark Knight Rises, and The Avengers all in the span of a couple weeks. Then I just started thinking about how I enjoy most of these comic book movies so much yet have never really read any comics, so I started buying a variety digitally to see what I like, and I do seem to like DC more - Batman, Superman, Aquaman, Justice League, etc. But now I feel the need to keep buying the next issue, and the next issue, and the next issue.

    Haven't read any of the Star Wars comics though. Haven't really been curious to look into them, though maybe I will.

    As for films:

    Really looking forward to Man Of Steel



    Oh, and new Star Trek: Into Darkness trailer :p

    Haven't read comics in years so can't give any informed opinion, but I'm surprised at the DC love.

    I was a Marvel guy, though mostly for Spidey, X-Men and Iron Man.

    Only DC characters I really liked were Batman and Flash.

    But we're talking 20 years since I was a regular :p

    I was happy the other day reading the old b & w original TMNT comics on my iPad.

    Its really hard for me to do a movie cram session. When I have time for something like that I'm a procrastinator so I keep pushing stuff like that back. I've got a backlog of like 100 movies I'm supposed to watch at some points, some of them old promises I swear I'll keep. However since I like DC heroes more I'm more likely to see those first. Man of Steel is top of my list and one that will probably actually get me into theaters. Star Trek: Into Darkness will be a tougher sell. I actually have not seen 2009 (?) Star Trek either. =b

    Man. I have like no nerd cred.

    I've just never been much for comics except for Manga, although my friends actually just like to accuse me of being a redneck who doesn't like to read. I did collect the Kaboom! Disney afternoon reboot comics however. Ahem.

    Star Trek (2009) was pretty much Star Trek Star Warsified. (Lightsabers not included) :p

    I've heard alot of mixed things about it.

    LOL, I kinda have this inside joke with one of my friends who is been into ST but doesn't like SW that he's just pissed off since he's been try to get me into ST for years and here I've gotten into SW instead, "randomly" as he puts it.

    The visual effects could be compared to ROTS, JJ is a pretty big SW fan, not so much for ST. The audio mix is pretty laid back. (Unlike any of the Star Wars live action movies. :p )

    The story was alright. Not one of my favorites, but one I'd recommend watching at least once.
