Holy shit. The Amazing Spider-Man talk. Higgins slowly snow balls into a hateful rant of the film. It's kinda epic.

He makes some parts of the movie sound good though. Honestly the hammer and sickle underwear, the electro hate-you hate-you song, and some other stuff sounds lulz.
I stream games some times. Come and watch www.twitch.tv/darfox8 These are my Highlights.

That Electro song is pretty bad. You have to get to about the 5:00 minute mark to hear what Higgins was talking about.

I saw a video that claimed it was actually underwear with little rhino emblems on it, not hammers and sickles.

You're right.

From a distance I can see how the mistake could be made.

Future's End #0 was pretty stupid, and not in a good way. Hopefully we won't have to see the future that would have been anymore and it can just focus on Terry. I already read a Brother Eye story that wasn't super grim-dark dumb and it came out like 10 years ago.

I dunno what you're talking about. It was dumb and I loved it. Seems like Future's End is going to focus on the future of 5 years rather than 35, with a few flashbacks to 35 years in the future. I'm OK with that. I really can't wait for this comic. It's going to be amazing.

I think Higgins and Charlie are hating on ASM2 more than they should because they are missing one key point. It is a COMIC BOOK movie. Of course it is dumb and cheesy. Yes, the movie was not very good, but you guys were nitpicking it for stupid things.
Edit: Also, yes, it handled the screen time of the villains poorly, but maybe you shouldn't watch the trailers if you don't want expectations to have to live up to.

One of the few times Ive agreed 100% with Higgins (though I always like how you express your opinion)
I dont care if its a comic book movie. I dont like bad plot and characters in my comics either. Bad writing is bad writing and I think as a demographic we put up with a bit too much so we can get to that awesome splash page of someone punching someone else.
I loved the analysis of the film. The bits it got right were FLAWLESS. Everything else was awful.
Interested with Tobys response. He usually puts a good counter argument but here he seemed to be saying "If you cut out lots of stuff, changed the dialogue and rearranged the scenes this is quite good"
Well then it isnt good right?
My brother really liked it and I totally see why he does. But it just didnt work for me.
I also feel that if we dont demand more of the parts of our hobby we share with the world then we cant be surprised when they dont get enthusiastic about checking it out. Movies should be the distilled greatness of comics but I feel like we are starting to scrape the barrel for good adaptions.

Hey Higgins, Id love to hear your opinion on the new Sonof Batman animated feature?

this wasnt brought up, but the biggest issue I have w/ comixology taking away IAP has to do with gift cards.

sometimes I am lucky that someone will gift me an itunes card, and whenever that happens I always put it towards comics.

so if in the future somebody is kind enough to offer me a similar gift, wtheck am I supposed to do with it now?

I dont shop itunes, rarely purchase apps, so the card becomes dang near useless now...

I always sell gifted starbucks cards on ebay lol, ppl will seriously pay you like $9.60 for a $10 card... maybe itunes is the same way?

It sounded like Higgins said that Slade brought Malcolm back with the purpose to take Thea. Where in the show would you even begin to think that. I don't think those two ever knew each other.

Higgins, how is Future's End so far? How wrong is CrossXhunteR (he hates it)?

Also, this might be a podcast question, but have you played/experienced the "DC Comics Deck-Building Game"? Great game, or greatest game?

I don't hate it. I don't really like what they are doing with Mr. Terrific, but I never liked his character pre-New 52, and his characterization after the reboot has been pretty bad. The stuff going on a few years from now is kind of cool, especially with Grifter just roaming around mercing aliens. The grimdark, metal-as-fuck future can just fuck off though. Are you telling me Brother Eye is turning everyone into dumbass spider-robot hybrids. Lame. I have already seen fucked-up-future by Brother Eye's hand and it has been done better.

greeting from southern california! I'm reppin Comics Conspiracy at da beach!!

Image

so thankful for the weather right now!

also Ryan Higgins! Preacher is awesome!!

the best thing I bought from you! everything else I picked up is just OK... nothing compelling,

but Preacher is on the level of I wanna read all the Preachers now!!

CrossXhunteR wrote:Can't people just give you cash or amazon gift cards or something?
people don't have to give me anything!

as a matter of fact, I'd prefer that! I'm still sitting on a $25 PF Changs gift card from a year ago becoz why the eff would I ever eat at PF Changs?!?!

likewise with the comixology switch, I'm saying itunes credit has lost all its value to me because comics were the one and only thing worth buying thru itunes.

also now I'm seriously considering I might as well sell my PF Changs gift card lol. I do need a pspita memory card after all :D

Higgins, stop watching trailers for animated movies. You are obviously watching the wrong ones. Just trust Toby if he says a movie is good.

Edit: Also, Toby, I want to hear your story of Best Buy not carrying enough of a Disney Movie. I assume you mean Frozen, and that stuff sells like crazy.
