I was actually ok with Nicholas Cage as Johnny Blaze. It was the weak script and a weedy Blackheart that grinded me

Thumbs up for the shirt! 
 
As for Transformers... I'm boycotting the movie altogether and erasing Bay's Transformers saga from my memory.

For me it was the mystery of what Shinigami were. How an eclectic group of people deveolped a strong bond and friendship. Then girl gets kidnapped, boy (with friends) save girl after overcaming his self doubt and realising his potential. The series had just about the right number of  characters that you cared about and see developed. There was a good mix of comedy, action and drama. 
 
Those were in the earlier days. But now it feel so diluted, continuously recycled with too many characters to think about,  that I've lost interest.

Either the Unoffical rankings have been moved oor deleted, but it's not there anymore.

 

I edited the Unofficial rankings a while back (over a year ago) to place The Presence up top... but looks like someone re-edited again. Whoever did, maybe they can explain why The Over-Monitor (etc) is above The Presence.

Can't find the Unoficial rankings anymore. Has this been moved or removed? If removed why? It wasn't 100% accurate, but I valued it as good reference.

"...it made me see the movie more as a Shakesperean drama"

 

That's Kenneth Brannagh for you! Excellent introduction to Thor and the action scenes were enjoyable enough. Overall very good.

Recently former Paragon City (EU Defiant)  resident. I started playing on EU release and it has been one of, if not the, most engrossing games I've ever played. Think the longievity was due to the people I had met in game, but alas with all good things, it came to an end. 
 
Prior to playing CoH, I began with Freedom Force. A superb turn based strategy game like no other superhero games that have been and gone. The customisation and community was immense. All of which helped me find CoH. I'm now looking towards DC Universe Online, however it would mean I'd need to buy either a new PC or get a PS3 (I'm Xbox all the way).

Oh dear... what's with all the goofyness? It almost looks like a kids movie. 
 
I was never a huge fan of Hal Jordan, but, the character they've gone for just doesn't feel like him. It looks like they're trying to bring in humour and "fun" factor akin to the Iron Man movies. I have a bad feeling the movie bosses are going for the easy sell again and forfeiting Hal's true character.
