Well I just think they got the wrong people doing their stories, who ever they have, are just picking popular characters randomly and making up stories with them, then getting rid off them without knowing their back ground or how they connect to other cool characters or stories.
As you know they're doing X-Men (Days of Future Past) which is going to be weird version of it, since they're using first class as their past and 2000's x-men as future....oh well.
You bring up a good point Magneto being too old, which makes me wonder if they will ever bring Pietro, Wanda and Lorna into the story line.
Also there is a story line in the x-men universe where Magneto uses the machine from the super soldier project to rejuvenate him self, they could that to bring Fassbender and McAvoy into the present x-men.
I think Apocalypse story needs a 2 movie set up first spend 15 to 20 mins going back to ancient times to set up his story and his connection to Mister Sinister then have the x-men trying to stop Mister Sinister from using Cyclops and Jean to power him up, heck you can even mix the story with where Magneto gets rejuvenate and add the professor as side story in both movies, then use the second part to stop Mister Sinister and Apocalypse from taking over the world it is just an idea and then introduce Cable and Bishop coming from the future to help, that would be my idea of how to set it up.
I agree with you Cable is underrated and he could be use into a bad azz time traveling movie.
About Sauron don't get me wrong it can be done, but his story line with the Savage Land and Ka-Zar it's hard to sell.
If you think about Sauron is the alter ego Karl Lykos kinda like Curt Connors is to the Lizard, so it is doable but you gotta do some clever story twisting to make it work.
So did you watch GI JOE?
Im suppose to check out GI.Joe this weekend because I didn't get a chance on opening week. Wow it sounds like you have the movie script right here on topix lol. You have the perfect plot for the future story line with Cable, Sinister and Apocalypse. I remember in the cartoon that Cable had to go back twice or there times because each time something was wrong in the future. That two part Apocalypse movie would be epic if they could pull it off. I think you should send someone this idea in film, but knowing them they change something for the kids lol.

I think one of the main problems also as far as them casting and story writing is that fact that maybe some of them have very little knowledge in stories of the past. The ones that made these XMen movies should have known how the cartoon and comic book went as far as like ages of characters, how this character is connected with the other, who to kill off and when etc. This also goes back to what was talked about earlier on the board about super heros being changed for the younger generation. I know it's not their fault that they may not know and didn't grow up in that time, but it takes away sum of the luster in the movie. I see it in a lot of these movies these days especially the remakes.

Does anyone get a feeling that the heat may not win the championship, that it looks too good to be true? Anytime there is a clear cut favorite to win, its amazing how often its met with disappointment. I am not saying they wont win it, but I wouldn't be surprised if something happened that prevented the heat from winning. The heat are so high up in the sky right now, they are probably becoming to forget what being humble and hungry are all about, plenty of hungry teams out there, knowing they dont have a lot to lose because the heat are the favorites anyway.
Well im hoping and praying they don't win it all again lol. Seriously though, there are two or maybe 3 teams from the East they have to worry about are the Knicks, Pacers and Celtics. I said months ago it would be the Knicks Heat in the ECF, but anything can happen. The Heat still don't have the size and rebounding, big they make up for it in other ways. The Knicks and Pacers have those advantages over them, but injures may be a huge factor for both teams. Knicks have some of the best ball movement in the NBA and that always beats good defenses. Anything can happen and or wouldn't shock me either if the Heat won it a again.

I don't know dude, this is not the first rodeo for this Clippers squad in the post season, they can still win their first round.
They managed to slow down their game last post season, they just played against a better team in their second round, this season are playing better then last and their opponents aren't exactly better then last season.
I give them a good chance of making some moose.
Like I was telling Sam, this Clippers skilled players just aren't good enough to win a championship. Yeah they are better than they were last year, but the teams they have beat in the playoffs are just better overall than they are. They may be in a rematch from last year with the Grizzles for the 1st round and even though Gay is gone, I still say their half court game is better than the Clippers half court game. Paul can only do some much and when Griffin and Jordan are spectators, then it will get ugly for them. I say out in the 1st round, but I have been wrong.

I was saying in another thread that this streak took a lot out of the Heat mentally and physically and I think that's why they're resting LBJ, Wade and others to let them recharge and refocus. I think they're going to be very vulnerable especially if teams copycat what Chicago did to them and yes, I feel the Heat can lose.
The bigger question is will the NBA allow themes to lose before the Finals? I believe the refs will protect the Heat from aggressive play and allow a flow that favors the Heat. I think if that happens yet again it's unfair and unfortunate and I think LBJ should have to prove he can rise above and handle the abuse that MJ, Kobe, Shaq, KG and others had to endure yet still prevailed in the end.
You know Stern doesn't want anything to happen to his golden goose and don't be shocked if the refs swallow the whistles during Heat home playoffs games. They make a lot of money for him and you know how he loves to keep his pockets fat just like his stomach.

On the flip side, the Knicks could make even more money for him if they beat the Heat since they are in one of the most profitable cities in the world. Knicks fans well and they pay top dollar for tickets. Also the Knicks are a very popular team and the market for their merchandise is very high right now especially since they are once again relevant.

Why do I see Stern doing the Harlem Shake dance in the remix if ths heat repeat as champs lol? Here are my picks. Nuts over Bull Frogs( Humphries is warming up for the playoffs). Chicken Nuggets over Pony Tails( may be close. McGee is getting ready for the playoffs also). Wild E Coyotes over Thunder Struck(close game and Spillter huge night lol).

<quoted text> You may wait for a while before they win a title. I don't feel comfortable with team. I would sooner give the Hawks(yes Justin) more accolades over the Knicks. Amare to me messes up the chemistry. I just don't think an over abundance of old guys vs run and guns teams can do it. Pacers if they meet will knock them out. Just too tough. My pick is the lowly Bucks to give Miami a run for the money. I always said the Bucks will make some upward moves. Celtics well its hit and miss with them, but a championship run not happening.
The only thing that messed up the Celtics was the injury to Rondo. If he was there then I would have they would give the Heat fits. I agree with you about Amare messing up the Knicks chemistry, but that's why he is only going to play certain amount if minutes. The Knicks half court offense can slow down the run and gun. Yes the.pacers would give the Knicks hell, but.the Granger factor is just a big blow. Also it may depend on who has the homecourt in that series. Don't sleep on the pricks Sam lol. Really Sam? Justinas dead hawks flying? Really? They are destined for failure lol.

<quoted text> Yea but Melo dosen't fit Stern's image player other than NBA headquarters in NY. Melo hasn't done enough like Wade Bron and Bosh have done. Melo's supporting cast just not a Stern thing. The next best thing could have been Chicago with Rose but that went kaput. There's no other team in the east that interests Stern to fill up his wallets.
Don't forgot how the NBA loves the Knicks and even when they were horrible they still loved to shove them down our throats. I agree that Melo has not done what Wade, James and Bosh has, but maybe this is time. What better way to do it by getting by the team that you hate an the team the media loves.

Dude let me know when you check out GI JOE, so we can compare notes.

It was just an idea from existing story lines.
yeah Cable goes back time cause of issues with the Apocalypse in the future kidnapping his son, so he goes back to past to kill him before he becomes to strong to stop him, at leas that's one story lines.

I completely agree you, they don't have people that know their x-men, four x-men movies five if you count wolverine and not once were the characters used right, it's a mess and not one of their best stories lines have been use.
You would think they would hire people that would know about this or at least use marvels writers input in the story of the characters.
This why I'm against them killing any characters their is no need, sometimes the characters have more then one good story under their belt, you can give a good battle with not having to end it in a dead.
You may want to leave the door open in case the character was awesome and earns repeat visit.

I don't know if you ever got a chance to watch young justice or Green Lantern series.
GL was pretty good, Young justice was bad azz the darkest super team series ever from DC, puts JL to shame and Batman Animated series that shares the dark tone, but lack the drama this series has.

Well they both got cancel march 16 WHY! is beyond me, but if DC can put the good of a product out there in story line wise for animation why can't they use some of these people to get a movie going.
Don't know who to blame on the cancellation if DC or Cartoon Network, if it was DC they are deeper problems that I originally thought with their personnel.

Dude I think they are going to surprise you.
The teams from the playoffs other then the Lakers, and the clippers are not better this season.

Granted you have new teams this post season, but this clippers squad have that extra playoffs experience over them and that could go long way.

WTF??
This is hilarious.
5 purses valued at 155,000 dollars, 15,000 cash from wifeys safe, 5000 in cash from bosh and they didin't take is championship ring.lmao
Bosh celebrated his 29 th birthday with fellow Heat teammates, including Lebron James and Dwyane Wade, at the Bamboo Nightclub in Miami Beach. The Boshes made quite the entrance to the bash, as they arrived via a helicopter and a yacht. When the couple arrived, they were greeted by two camels named Henri and Jacob. Three cakes were designed for Bosh, and belly dancers and fire eaters provided entertainment for guests throughout the night. Hip hop artist Kendrick Lamar surprised Bosh with a performance.
Who the hell was in-charge of the party, the circus?
Gee if it wasn't cause he is dead I would guessed Pablo Escobar..he he he
Camels and belly dancers I guess it was Arabian nights theme.
I would had love to hear that the camels started spitting on the guess...lol
Imagine if the one the camel would said, F this these mother fers, have me pass my bed time, screw this guys I'm spitting on these humans...lol
I didn't know Bosh was marry, but really 5 purses worth $155k, 12 watches worth $300?
How many watches does he wear at one time?
Then they wonder why they are broke right after the NBA career is over.
Don't buy expensive stuff that you can't get back the money you expend on it.
They saw the championship ring, went nah f this ring is doesn't belong to Laker player...lol
They were actually pretty smart the take that ring they are caught !00%

My Take is Magic been through enough to say, having son and seeing him grow means more to life then him coming out.

Although the news of Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Jr.'s son, Earvin III , garnered some harsh reactions from a handful of critics, the former Los Angeles Lakers superstar is fully supportive of his son coming out as a gay man

Well James is an attention grabber all eyes gotta be on him, Wade loves being flashy, he likes to be seen wearing Gucci and Bosh loves all type of cameras he doesn't discriminate in that department...lol

So, you have the perfect menage troi and to complete each other even more by all of them three being immature enough.

In Miami this crap makes a lot news, here apparently is the average rich girl sweet sixteen party...lol

I'm surprise there was no names dropped for his event, I wonder how much did he ended up paying for the party.

Nice win there fellas, barely. You guys must be dying dangling in that last spot. Sunday will be very interesting. RR this must be a tough one for you against your other favorie team.
@Dell, see three big nights for Melo but Iam telling you without Amare , Melo is a complete package. Amare is not a fit there.
It was an interesting win no doubt against the Grizz, I'm glad we had Pau, cause with Howard in foul trouble they would had lost easily.
Actually Sammy is not tough at all, I bleed purple and gold, is just that I have a soft spot for the clipps when they are playing other teams.

Sammy remember a few months back when Pau got injury, you guys were saying he no one would trade for him.

Well now that he is back, it shows my point any playoff team that would had traded for him back then, would be looking at a Pau that's ready for the post season right, told you there was enough time get him back for the playoffs.

Well in Brown defense he didn't have no where near of a team as the Lakers are right now, healthier yeah better no.
Phil in his last season he didn't looked like he cared he just went with and didn't even try in my opinion.
I agree about D'antoni can't really grade him either, but he didn't help him self by trying to force his dumb azz system on a team that was not build for it, burning out his senior players with crazy high speed practices and miss managing their mins in games that ended up with the team dishing his system and just doing their own thing.
It would had been better if he had made the adjustment his self instead of the team doing their own thing.
I wonder if all these crazy practices and big game mins are the reasons for all these crazy amount of injuries, tired bodies become clumsy and are more susceptible to injuries.
So at the ended he didn't help him self, either.
I agree Phil didn't try his best to coach.....Brown had a healthier team therefore he had a better chacne of winning than D'antoni, but I was expecting for brown to have the lakers playing some amazing defense, and it never really happened, and the offense wasn't all that great, so I really don't think brown impressed me at all. D'antoni well, you cant grade him fairly but he clearly is't the right coach, I would be shocked if hes still coaching here next season.

I feel somewhat for Mike D but I can't feel too much because the guy is getting PAID and can afford to dry his tears with all the extra cash. The one I hope who got the message from the fans was Jim Buss. Why wasn't he out there? Was he afraid he'd receive a chorus of "boo's" or am I off on this one?
I agree with you, I think Laker-nation will always want Phil until another can be won.
I thought the ceremony was a bit rushed, no Mitch, no one else talking other than phil jackson and shaq, and your right no Jimmy buss, jimmy has no beef with shaq , but he does have a beef with phil, so who knows, maybe jim knew the two of them together on the court he would recieve boos like you said. The ceremony was good but it could have been better, it just felt like they rushed it a bit too much. Then again I guess you can say shaq didn't end things well with the laker organization who gave him a lot, he went out talking bad about them, even Dr. Buss, and now they still retire his jersey, so I suppose its a give and take there.

I have never fully bought into the NBA conspiracies cause I feel that its too big of a secret to keep, it would have leaked and stern would have been in some big problems....However I do believe they protect superstars, its obvious, look at what happened in toronto when they gave kobe a quick second tech, they huddled and apparently forgot kobe already had one, the toronto coach had to point out you cant take it back, so yeah that is kind of weird lol, it really shouldn't matter right? Lebron, wade get a lot of love from the refs, but what does worry me, stern is on his way out, so anything can happen I suppose, what does he care if he does a terrible job right now.

What I cant understand tis the media being stupid flip floppers, all of a sudden lebron is a good guy, hes a great player period, is this because he won the championship? Seriously lebron is still the same arrogant guy no one liked, the difference is he won a championship, so the media has to kiss ass to whoever is on top? I don't get it. The media chooses who is a villain and who is a good guy, to be honest Howard is not a bad guy the media makes him a bad guy, Howard has his faults but hes not a bad guy, the media as you said sets him up to look bad. Kobe gets a pass, he can say basically almost anything he wants, he just speaks his mind, I guess hes in legendary status lol, but it wasn't always like that kobe had his time as the mega villain . Durant is too boring for the media, but really this kid is great he should be in the lime light a little more.
