Did subby think the entire movie was improv?
 
2021-07-13 9:21:53 AM  
First Class was the first one set back in the 60s?

That movie was awesome
 
2021-07-13 9:24:15 AM  
First Class was good. I am okay with this.

That being said, there being 3 movies being planned WHEN THEY HAVEN'T GIVEN US A PROPER TRAILER FOR THE TV SERIES YET IS DISCONCERTING.

Where is the trailer?

WHAR?!

I liked First Class.

Apparently this is a trilogy set during the Age of Legends/War of Power. Seems like they're getting a bit ahead of themselves. Lets make sure the show is a success first guys.

Here is to me hoping you're both right.

Well we get to see what kind of madman sticks his dick in Lanfear crazy.

So this "Wheel of Time" is the gimmick they're going to use to introduce the X-Men to the MCU? I guess that's exciting if you've read the comics, but I wasn' t that big on DC as a kid. I was more of a Bazooka Joe fan.

90% of heterosexual males, and a good 80% of homosexual females.  And a whole lot of the inbetweeners.  Beyonders, too.

Personally, I cannot wait for the fandom to biatch about whomever they cast as Lanfear because that is what the internet does. "She is supposed to be the most beautiful woman ever and you case HER?!". Beauty is subjective and literally no one could make everyone happy, but mark my words that's exactly what you will read.

It's interesting how sometimes you can tell so much about the submitter based on the headline they submit.

In this case, subby:
- professes to be a "nerd" (as it's currently quite fashionable), yet doesn't really like comic book movies, etc.
- has not actually seen X-Men First Class
- has heard some of the other cool kids talk about how much "X-Men sucks"
- desperately wants to be seen as one of the "cool kids"

My brain collapsed from reading those books at the same time that Jordan died, so I haven't read the ones he didn't write.  I have all kinda ideas how the series could/should end, but I'm having a hard time getting back into  it.  I tried just picking up the first Sanderson book, but I forgot everything that had happened and who everybody is (except the leads, of course).  I still don't know if Verin is purple and what the hell that even means.  Or how the male side of the Power gets fixed.  Or what the hell with Moiraine and the old juggling fool guy and Min and Mat and what the hell?  Should I try to finish it?  Is it worth it?  Starting over with the first book sounds like a helluva slog.

"It depends" is my simplest answer.

If you did enjoy the original 11 books in the series AND don't mind re-reading it to get caught back up AND don't mind that they will make changes to the story for TV...then yes. Sanderson does a great job brining things to the climax and finishing off the story (PHRASING!)

If you did enjoy the original 11 books in the series AND don't mind re-reading it to get caught back up BUT WILL NOT like seeing the changes from the book to the series then do not finish reading it and just wait for the show.

If you were "meh" 11 books in, then I don't know what to tell you. If I am eleven books into ANYTHING I am there for the long hall now. Whether I like it or not. lol
Does this help?

Yes, it does help.  I'm in category 1 (maybe 1.5).  I'm OK with changing the story a little to accommodate the change to a new medium.  Massive changes do piss me off though, like Aragorn getting knocked off a horse and floating unconscious down the Entwash for no reason.  So now I gotta dig out my Jordan books.  Maybe I'll just find detailed synopses online.

My advice would be the chapter synopses by Encyclopedia WOT. IMO the last three books are on par with anything RJ wrote and much better than part 8-10ish. Characters get a little more personality too.

And... THEY ACTUALLY *TALK* to each other.
Amazing how fast the plot moves after that.

But do we still get to find out exactly what fabric, cut, weave, color and style each woman in each room is wearing?

YOU UNCLUTURED SWINE. It is important we get a full page on why roof tiles are the color they are in a certain town before getting to anything interesting.

Hey, they tried that with The Dark Tower and that one worked out just fine.

Judging from the slowness of the character development in the books, will the movie be a two hour still shot of actors frozen in place?
