^True, but that kind of thing is impossible to predict and I don't think it usually ends up as a bad as it sounds. I remember when Tropic Thunder came out there was a hullabaloo over the frequent use of the word "retard." It didn't seem to actually hurt the movie, though. If anything, it probably brought more attention to it.

ANY publicity is good publicity. It's the only reason some people have jobs.

I don't know if that's totally true, but I know it often has been. Sean Cunningham wryly thanks Roger Ebert for contributing to Friday the 13th success with his call for a ban and his print war against it. It was like free advertising.

I bet that did help now that you mention it.

BTW, just downloaded the Friday the 13th game for PS4. Watching my son play it as I type this!

That's definitely on the top of the list if I ever get a PS4 or XBox One.

Sadly it doesn't look like it's worth our money :/

Seen nothing but bad reviews involving game breaking glitches and server issues

I'm a huge of Batman and Harley Quinn, but I'm not excited about this film. I think it's mostly because Arleen Sorkin is not voicing Harley Quinn. Melissa Rauch is voicing Harley and when I hear it, I don't hear Harley but Bernadette from the Big Bang Theory.

Moreover, it doesn't feel like Bruce Timm's Batman: The Animated Series.

I think I have to agree. She sounds way off. I would have preferred going a different way with the voice like Robbie did or even Walch in Assault on Arkham. It feels like it's trying to recapture Harley's glory days but failing. I'll see it eventually, though.

It does have a lot of bugs, but they are working on it. I would say if you are a fan of the F13 franchise, the game is so fun, that you can overlook the bugs for now. We're having a blast with it at the moment on ps4.

Yeah, I'll eventually see it as well. Most likely when it's available on Netflix.

Ditto. Or the local library (they have a surprising number of the animated movies and sometimes before I remember to queue them from Netflix).

Yeah, I'm not looking forward to it either. Like it's got Timm style animation and Conroy and Loren Lester, which makes the change in both Quinn and Ivy's voices extremely jarring. It'd be one thing if it were going for its own thing, with a unique style and all fresh voice actors (or just Conroy as has been common), but as is, it's sort of an uncanny valley situation.

Nothing at all about these showings says a thing about contempt for men, except in the minds of the very touchiest of snowflakes. To my thinking, anybody that bothered by this is probably already somebody who was set against seeing the movie in the first place, solely because it had a female lead.
Don Cheadle gave a perfect response to the thin-skinned men demanding male-only showings of Wonder Woman:

Don Cheadle just needs to breathe for a minute and learn to love celebrating being a man, lol. Sometimes its fun to watch everyone get pissed for patting yourself on the back like everyone else. Makes it obvious how self serving and self esteem driven it is.

Teen Titans TV Series Character Breakdowns Surface



Quote:
A few years back, word got around of a Nightwing and the Teen Titans TV series, known simply as Titans, that Warner Bros. Pictures was developing for cable network TNT. Akiva Goldsman wrote a pilot script (we have some details on that here), and things were moving along before the plug was pulled. We figured this project was dead. It turns, out, Warner Bros. was just biding their time. Instead, Titans will be one of the centerpieces (along with Young Justice Season 3) of a new, subscription digital TV service that will launch in 2018.

Here's the official synopsis for Titans:
Titans follows a group of young soon-to-be Super Heroes recruited from every corner of the DC Universe. In this action-packed series, Dick Grayson emerges from the shadows to become the leader of a fearless band of new heroes, including Starfire, Raven, and many others. Titans is a dramatic, live-action adventure series that will explore and celebrate one of the most popular comic book teams ever.
No word yet on whether this takes place in the same universe as the other DC superhero TV shows, but given the "multiverse" approach we've seen so far, it's a safe bet.

As far as the roster goes, the "and many others" from that synopsis is worth noting. Goldsman's previous Titans pilot script also included Barbara Gordon and Hawk and Dove. Geoff Johns tweeted that we can expect Beast Boy in the lineup this time, as well, and now there's some evidence for that.

The folks at That Hashtag Show have scored casting breakdowns for the series, which gives us an idea of who will be coming to the party.

The first is "John Crossland" which is totally code for Dick Grayson...
Male, late 20s-early 30s, Caucasian. Equal parts charm and impenetrability, John is a cop. He has a nice smile, tired eyes and a cool, distant manner. However, when provoked, his eyes are so lethal “they drain a man of every last bit of spleen.” John is haunted by the murder of his family. Unbeknownst to those around him, he is also a vigilante. In the shadows, he fights with the commitment and conviction of an artist, the brutal grace of a dancer. Mentally and physically, he is covered in a map of scars. And though he fights to escape his past, it is often a losing battle…SERIES LEAD
Then there's "Sarah" who is almost certainly Raven.
Female, Mid teens, Open Ethnicity. Troubled, bullied, often scared but unwilling to show it, Sarah is a loner more comfortable hiding in her hoodie than making friends. Haunted by a dark force inside her, Sarah experiences violent episodes that she cannot understand or control. She is also plagued by recurring nightmares that lead her across the country in search of help…SERIES REGULAR
And "Casey" who we can safely assume is Starfire...
Female, 20s, Open ethnicity. Casey is a tall, stunning woman, her beauty so magnificent it’s almost inhuman. Elegant, refined and mysterious, she is on the hunt to discover who is trying to kill her and why. And those after her are in for a surprise because she’s more deadly than anyone they’ve ever encountered…SERIES REGULAR
And then there's "Jax" who sounds like Beast Boy to us...
Male, Mid-late teens, Open Ethnicity, Asian preferred. Funny and charming, this amateur thief’s humor hides his insecurities and past pain. Not the toughest kid on the streets, he’s learned to survive in the world with his wit and quick-thinking…SERIES REGULAR
We'll update this with more information as it becomes available, but this is very exciting news!

I saw The Shallows and I liked it. I suspect Suicide Squad 2 will be better than the original since the bar wasn't set that high.
