At least now you know that their opinions are worthless.

Well, more than one person has now made the argument to me that all Wall E was, was "Trees good, garbage bad!" (yes, that is nearly literally what they're saying), and all I can say is "Uh... yeah?"

I dunno. All joking aside, really to each their own, it's just weird to see people sticking stuff like Wall-E and Ratatouille near the bottom when both of those films are among Pixar's most universally acclaimed anywhere else you look.

Right. Also, I should make clear that I don't think all Wall E is, is "trees good, garbage bad", just saying there was nothing wrong with that sentiment... :)

Oh my god, Archer season 5 may be the greatest thing ever.

Well, went and saw Amazing Spider Man 2. Really enjoyed it. I'll let you guys get the flaming out of the way now. :)

It's probably the best Spiderman movie so far. I think if they had erased Harry Osborne completely it could have been much better. I mean really, your father was working on a cure for the disease that he died of... in his 60s. He just went from calm to batshit crazy way too fast.

I dunno, I kind of wrote it off to pampered-but-messed-up-childhood+fatal-disease-at-20-makes-Harry-a-dull-boy. Plus, Harry seemed to be dying from it much more quickly, I guess? You are right though, he did go from 0-to-60 on the crazyometer pretty quickly. Loved that moment with the kid and the wind turbine experiment.

One thing I wondered about... and spoilers for anyone reading...



In the first movie they establish that the web fluid for his shooters is purchased from Oscorp, who make it with the mutated spiders. This is never referenced again, otherwise someone at Oscorp might have put 2 and 2 together and wondered why this one kid was ordering it all.

The issue I have though, is that in the latest movie, all of the spiders have been destroyed... So where does that leave Spiderman?

Sometimes I like to pronounce Spider-man as Spiderman, like a last name. Goldman, Freeman, that kind of thing.

I'd forgotten they established that. I'd just assume they came up with a synthetic version or something, I guess..?

Also Superman, Batman, etc. I think this is a viral thing. I know the Yogscast have been doing it for a while.
