Hi guys, I don't know if many of you have noticed the flagging system that we use over here on vine, but at the edge of anyones post next to reply you will see a Flag, this lets you flag their post for a mods attention. Now what happens when a users post is flagged is that each user gets one karma point. So say I flag someone they will get one point and so will I. Now if you get four points you are unable to submit wiki. Now when a Mod checks the flagged post if the mod checks the flagged item and it is has broken the site rules then the Mod will click moderate and the point will be removed from the reporting users profile, If it has not broken the site rules and the mod will not do anything then the reporting user keeps the point and the person that was flagged losses the point. 1 Points stay on you're account for twenty four hours, so if you get 4 point it will take four days for those points to come off you're account. After a certain amount of flags a user can not flag another user and then if they get more they can not post in the threads until their points come down.
The flagging system is here for you guys to help us as well as help you, If something is flagged we will make sure to get to it and deal with it as quick as possible. Also if something is happening and it is not in the threads remember you can PM myself or any of the other mods and we will more then happily help at any time.
Right so straight of the bat I just want to explain that I for one have no problem with an age difference in a relationship, this is more of a fun blog so just go with it and don’t try to make any mountains out of mole hills.
Now we have seen so many stories about vampires these last few decades and they seem to skim over the age difference with varying ease. Let’s take Twighlight for a starting point seeing as the next movie installment is only a meager few days away. Edward was born in 1901 and died in 1918 at his time of death would have been seventeen so that places him at the right age as Bella from the movie and book, look wise. Now by the time he meets Bella he has been the living dead for over a hundred and six years. Now this is where my problem starts, see Bella is all to eager to fall for mister sparkles in sunlight and damn right too, I don’t know many seventeen year old girls who aren’t looking for some mystical monster….sorry mystical hansom stranger to offer them something more then the terrible lives they have now…. We all know being a teenager is hard!!! Well that’s until you become older and have to work and pay tax, sorry im getting to that part!!!
Now as far as teen vampire stories go this is the underlying plot, Vampire Diaries, hell even True Blood to a point. So a seventeen year old girl who has never fallen in love before or had the chance to understand the world around her, who has never gone to college or had a real job (and before you say I know she worked at the dinner….but that was a dinner.) She has had no real chance to be a girl that becomes a woman. But the vampire who has matured over the last hundred odd years and should understand what his action will do is more often then not eager to please the woman he is with. May it be after several chapters of her and him being emo about it all. No I won’t change you im a monster…Shut up and get a grip. It’s not about changing her because you’re a monster or that you will be taking away her chance to be human, It’s because it just freaking strange why a 107 year old would want to date a 17 year old, well unless your getting something out of it that won’t make your heart explode in your chest.
Now I get that he is not old and will never get old, but he should also know that life as well as living is important. We need to be able to make mistakes and fall in and out of love, that’s what makes us who we are, may it be human or not. Hell we all had made mistakes and that’s what gets us to where we are, But now you go and make her a Vampire “Because that’s what she really really wanted” like the 18 year old girl who wants a prom dress or needs the latest whatever cd or she is just going to die…. Or she could be more mature, if a woman wants something 9/10 times she is going to get it. So yeah her life may be in danger and you need to do it, but do you really? Lets take a forward jump and find out what happens when things go wrong because some teenage weddings just don’t last past their third year. You just p!ssed of a very fast and powerful women who YOU turned into a vampire, well done dumbass a women scorned who will simply rip off your face, but don’t worry you can heal….so she can do it again, Welcome to your eternal nightmare!!
But all that a side, the age thing just confuses me, 107 year old, lives with his family, enjoys baseball in the rain and dark overcast towns, seeks 17 year old for friendship or more. Really how many people would reply to that?
Anyway hope I got at least a few laughs and you enjoyed my random blog for this week.
So the drive into work was a long one this morning and I was listening to the radio as per normal, Then the news came on so I started watching the car in front of me. Now before I continue the story I blame comics for what happened next! So there I am and the one piece of news caught my ear. “an Invasion of Silver Surfers will be descending on Abertay university” 0_o what the hell had Abertay done to have an army of the silver surfer go to that level of destruction, what could there possible be within the old building to ask for this level of the power cosmic….. Of course the news went on to explain “As the biggest event for the elderly learning to surf the internet.” Comics are messing with my common sense…. Or I was just overly tired as I imagined an army of students dressed as Silver Surfers heading to uni that day, it did make me laugh!! Just thought I would share my moment of randomness with the vine.
Well with Ironman two set to hit the screens in the next coming months and Captain and Thor getting steam in their engines, It began to wonder about the avengers. Now we know most of the line up rumored and those who are not, we also know its producers, Avi Arad: who in the past hast worked on Hulk and Iron Man and not to mention the countless Animated series that included Dr Strange and Wolverine and the X-men, but he is also keyed to work on a few more upcoming films for marvel as well which I will only mention a few of Doctor Strange (2012), Ant-Man (2012) Magneto (2012) Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Sub Marnier, Deathlok and Spidermans Reboot and that’s only a few of course we also have Louis D’Esposito and Jon Favreau who complete the executive producers set. But still no director on the horizon for Marvels big team movie. Now im not worried as the cast all seem to start falling in place, We have an Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, Nick Fury and maybe a Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye. We also have some reserves in the wings waiting to break out the shadows Wolverine, War Machine and maybe even a spiderman, before the Avengers hit the screen. But what about villains we all know the Hulk could be a contender for this role, maybe Loki or Doctor Doom and even an Ultron with the Ant-Man movie clawing it’s way across the production floor. Im not sure who I would like to see, I mean we even may have a group of them, Dark Reign showed how well a team of villains work with each other. But what do we as fan aspect, this is going to be a huge movie for DC and Marvel fans alike. Marvel have the chance to do something that they have never done before and has never been done on the big screen. I for one am not really worried about the rumors for Cap at the moment, as I remember what people where like when Downey came out of nowhere and blew us all away so lets take a look at the possible line up shall we.
To be honest im in two minds about him, If he gets the role I wonder if he really understands what he is letting himself in for! Comic book fans are not the nicest critics around and this character will be a big role for any actor to fill the red and white stripped suit of honour. Good luck to this man if he gets it, I would never take such a role unless I could do it justice and Chris you have not shown the skill needed to date to pull this role off.
Well what can you say! casting this man in this role was just perfect, if not a little mad. Some people thought that he was going to be awful but to me the first movie even put Dark Knight in it's place. It hurts for me to say that as im a DC fan but still RDJ plays Tony perfect. He makes a great Iron Man and is a hard act to follow I honestly can't wait to see what they do with him in the Avengers movie, maybe we will see him turn to drink and with Iron Man 3 coming out the same time as The Avengers will we see the start of the first hero movie crossover!!!! as something in the Iron Man movie cross's over into the Avengers
Scarlett Johansson takes the role of the Russian spy, I have to admit I don't want to say much about her as I don't rate that high as an actress and I do look forward to seeing what she does with this role... If she can escape pouting for more then five scene I may be happy with her in this role and then again maybe not, Jury is still out. Best
Best part of casting for Hawkeye to date, He has been one of my top actors for awhile, he even made SWAT watch-able. He has the right attitude for the part and seems to fit it perfectly. If he gets the role I have high hopes for him in the movie and that's not just because I like Hawkeye.
Im not sure how many people liked the Hulk film, but I loved it. Norton was a good choice for this role and as much as I like him as an actor he always goes for these types of roles. Always broody and smart but he plays it well, I really hope he is kept on for the Avengers film as he makes a good Bruce Banner and I would like to see if he can grow along with this role.
Well I don't know what to say, I have only seen him for a short time at the start of Star Trek. That's right people Thor is in fact Captain Kirk's dad. I think they did the right thing casting someone new in the role and I just hope that he is the right person for such a character and I hope they give Thor the place he deserves in the Avengers.
Nick Fury is one bad M!ther f@cker and so is the man playing him. I was a bit annoyed that we did not get the fury from 616, But hell after the last Nick Fury movie (THE HOF) I have to say I can't think of anyone else to take this role. The man just screams bad assness lets hope he's big enough to fill the shoes.
Now with this all said we have a couple of people missing from the crew apart from the line up above of people we know will be making appearances leading up to the Avengers movie and will be in the actually movie we still have characters that may make it on to the list above, some that should be there and some that should not.
Hank Pym, we know the Ant-man movie is coming and may not be to the taste of all it's fans but it will not be the avengers with out Mr Pym and his wife. I really don't know if he will make the final list, I think it will all depend on the movie and the people that go to see it. Then again the way Marvel have been sticking to the history and just twisting it a little for the movies it may work out that we see Ant-Man join their ranks. Strangley I can see Jeff Goldbloom (not sure If I spelt that right )in this role
Where we have Hank we have to have his wife. I think even us DC fans know about Hank and Janet, the idea of a wife and husband superhero team is always fun to me and I hope they included her because with Hank and Janet I think the avengers will be missing something.
He is in everything, I doubt he will make it into the avengers but I would not be surprised at a cameo at some point in the movie or even a reference to him in some way. God I mean with the way Deadpool blew up we may see the two of them at some point in the movie at a bar having a drink. As much as it would be fun I really, hope they just keep it down to him being mentioned in passing.
I see a place for him in the movie but not as an Avenger. We are yet to see what Don can do with the role, but yet again I have high hopes he is a good actor and fits the part well. I just hope that the role does not turn into a jinx and he is replaced before Iron Man 3 or the Avengers movie. But if fire power is needed we may just get a glimpse of the silver suit.
With the reboot already producers and talks of directors floating around, there is a high chance that we will see are friendly neighbourhood spiderman making a quick stop in front of the camera. I think it will be fun to have him watching the Avengers appear and maybe a witty comment but I do hope for the Avengers movie we only see little spots here and there of other heroes or it will just get a bit OTT.
So what do you guys think for Villains, Casting and possible directors? Do you think they should have other heroes appearing in the Avengers film? anyway hope you enjoyed the blog/
Well with Comics bursting onto our screens at an alarming rate and the world of American movies looking for a new source to pull from, it seems that leap over the pond is not as far as they thought! So far we have had disappointments and I made a blog about my fears for our fav animes getting taken advantage for in the future. Well here we are at the start of the new year and with new year comes new news on the horizon for live action animes.
Laeta Kalogridis has just submitted the script for Ghost In The Shell and it has also been reported that Alex Tse (watchman) has finished of his script for Wanner Brothers adaption of Ninja Scroll so we may see even more news on that coming across the waves sometime soon. Now there is even news that Vampire Hunter D is getting worked on for a live action adaption as well and the man behind it is Hideyuki Kikuchi himself!
But the sad news is that we will most likely have to wait another year before we see Anime Live Action flood are screens, in fact if you’re an anime fan get ready for 2011 it’s going to be wild, Why I hear you ask, well after digging and hunting and looking, I came across dates for a few of the films and lets just have a little look what 2011 has to offer shall we.
2011 the year of Anime
Angel : Still has a date in 2011 but rumors around say this may be on hold until James Cameron finish’s work on Avatar 2
Cowboy Bebop: Are we holding out hope that it’s going to keep that awesome feel from the series, I know I am
Voltron: With the transformers movie hitting hard and fast (3 movie already on it’s way) of course we should expect more from this but as of yet looks like it may only be a Japanese release!
Ghost In The Shell: Well what can be said about this, if it’s done right awesome if not …..
Gantz: Makes it welcome appearance this year as well, perhaps the one live action anime im most looking forward to.
Full Metal Panic: Yet again I don’t have much detail as of yet but yep it’s got a green light for live action in 2011 as well.
Bubblegum Crisis : again I don’t have much detail as of yet but yep it’s got a green light for live action in 2011 as well.
And of course Akira still set for the silver screen in 2013.
But even with all this seemingly great news lets look at a track run from American Live Action Animes: Speed Racer 0_o, Dragon Ball Evo -_-, Astro boy it was a shame that this sucked! Blood The last Vampire Sucked so much. So do we have high hopes for the future I have to right!
This may sound strange, but I was thinking (dangerous I know). But over in comic land we have cross over’s all the time, JLA and Avengers, Ultimate Powers, Dream Wars and the list continues. But this is easy to do because a large group of comic heroes is based in one universe and that both universes are close enough to reflect well off each other. So is there a place in Manga for this to happen more then it does, would we like to see a One Piece and Naruto cross over, or even a Lupin and Cowboy bebop, is there a market for something like this in the Manga community or is it just a pipe dream. It can also be a big money winner for the companies and often may cause the fans to be up in arms but they will always buy it so why not ?
It would allow for interesting stories, but I like how everything that happens in Manga (not anime) is canon and follows the story, this is a problem in comic world for the fans at least, im sure we have all met a storm or Hulk fan boy who has shown us a scan of Hulk punching out superman or storm almost killing (insert unimportant name here). But would this really happen in Manga, I could see it happening on a smaller level but not with the bigger characters I don’t know why I just don’t think it would happen. We have even seen comics make the leap into the Manga world with the X-men misfits and Batman Death Mask and Childern Of Dreams, so what if Bleach went DC on us .
As much as I would like to see this happen if only it was once and just something for fun, I don’t ever see the companies working on something like this, the diversity between Manga universe are sometimes tiny and other times huge so I guess im just typing out loud.
Anyway if they ever did do a cross over what would you like to see, what would the story be and how would you do it?
This is just me being me but, when you make a wiki sub and it has this little box at the bottom leave a comment for the mods, if you are editing a large article can you please leave a comment in fact it is good practice to leave a comment for every sub, Here are some guidelines to help.
1. Don't just say "Cuz it should be on the site" tell us why and the series it is linked too. 2. Do not put random rubbish in the comment box, actually tell us why you are submitting it and which part you have edited. 3. We don't need a story in the comment box, just a comment and that way we know what we are looking at. 4. NO abuse in the comment boxes. 5. Good luck subbing.
It may seem like a small thing, but a lot of comic book articles are now pretty large and there is now a lot of them as well, if you change one word or fix one spelling mistake the whole article still comes up so we have to read and find the smallest change, some times it is a needle in a hay stack. This way we can get straight to you're changes and approve them making the process faster and easier for the user and the mods.
Forgive the Animevice picture I copied this blog from my other account.
Well with Kickass mania waiting to hit the screens, I wondered how many “Real” super heroes working in the world today. “I mean why has no one tried to do it?” obviously there is a danger to the job, like getting your ass kicked, falling from tall buildings with a single bounce and of course a good tailor! But no it’s true they are out there and yes they are registered!!!! so put that in your pipe and smoke it tony stark. That’s right if you have the willingness and skill to protect the streets don’t think you are by yourself oh no you have numerous….um people to call on, such as Superhero who takes his fight to the scum of Florida. Superhero is a real-life superhero independently sanctioned by the Clearwater Police Department, does missions to help them out, roadside assistance for people, and in addition to the many charity missions he has done before, he has rescued lives of people who were in car accidents. Or let not forget about people in the Uk who do we have protecting the streets against the evil…. (seriously we need to make a Super villains team).
But anyway not to worry every one we have we have Black Arrow (no relation). She serves justice to those who deserve it. I give advice and guidance. But I am not just here for the people, I am here for the animals and the environment, for they are part of this world. Best thing about it and yes im going to include the link to the page, is that these guys may dress up and to some seem comical, but they actually do help. Not so much with the busting skulls and kicking ass side of things, there is one woman who makes sure drunk woman are not taking advantage of. Another like a “hero” called I'm Geist, a real person doing something out of the ordinary and somewhat unorthodox to attempt to make my city of Rochester, Minnesota a better, kinder and safer place. My personal cause is the Forgotten, those overlooked by mainstream society. If there is a crisis situation, I have training and equipment to aid myself and others. My equipment and methods are completely legal. I'm prepared to make Citizen's Arrests if necessary. But he in fact helps the homeless leaving them food and blankets to keep the warm. I mean they might not be swinging from web to web, flying in the sky, but they are helping where they can.
I may not have painted them in the best picture because I do find some of there costumes (Well you will see) but these are people trying to do that little to help out, no matter how insane they may look, it’s only fair to give them a little clap if you see them running by, just for having the b@lls to live the dream that we all know is insane, but it’s still a fight that needs to be fought. But check them out maybe you have a hero in your neighbourhood, don’t look to the sky, look to the streets they are out there: Superhero Registry
So I say make them work for it, lets see if we can start an community of evil, I mean we will have to break some laws and also dress up in costume 0_o na lets just leave it to the semi pro's , the world seems to have enough problems without us XD.
Well as we know I love the PROMO pictures that seem to flood the threads at the moment, so I went looking for more pictures and I came across and interesting article by Chris Sim over on comic Alliance. He seems to be in the same mind set as myself about the wonderful images from marvel, so he did some digging and found the true team line up, the truth behind the secret, the masks that will be heading the avengers
With a Line up like this, Im sure the fall out after the Siege will be nothing that these guys cant handle.
