Dec 18, 2013 Outoftouch commented on Harlan Ellison Reviews Saving Mr. Banks: "Fucking Manipulative ... Bullshit from One End to the Other".
This rant reminds me of the feud between Harlan Ellison and Gene Rodenberry over the Star Trek script "The City on the Edge of Forever". There were two huge egos arguing over the original script of that episode but at least Ellison is consistent with his contempt of changes to his work.

I will keep voting for Patty Murray even after she turns into a zombie. All I see out of her is hard work. The budget deal is a big suck but to get something passed through a Republican controlled house that would have otherwise been a disaster is a real accomplishment.

In Japan right now, the new remake of Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199 is showing. It is awesome. Wave Motion Gun: If you need to kill every mother-fucking alien in the galaxy, accept no substitutes.

Still no female superheroes! Where is the Wasp, Ms. Marvel, Firestar, Storm, Blackcat, or even a Elektra reboot? I would mention She-Hulk or Spiderwoman but they seem to derivative. What do you mean we had this conversation already? Still, Antman sucks more than the above.

@17 Some of the hostages escaped on their own and were hiding in the Canadian Embassy until the US CIA could get a rescue mission going. The movie Argo is based on this mission. @16 It was Jimmy Carter that negotiated the release of the rest of the hostages.

Carter did the work but Reagan took the credit.…
Jul 30, 2013 Outoftouch commented on Media Conglomerate Would Rather Throw Money Away Than Make a Movie Starring a Strong Female Lead.
I always thought the George Perez 80's version of Wonder Woman would be awesome as a TV series. The focus on the Greek Mythology really makes the series. Generally, I believe comics really came of age in the 80's with writers such as John Bryne, Alan Davis, George Perez, Chris Claremont and Marv Wolfman. Look at all of the X-Men movies done. They are all knock offs on "The Dark Phoenix Saga", "God Loves, Man Kills", and "Day of Futures Past". 1987 George Perez shows that there is a lot of good Wonder Woman stories just ready to be redone for video.…

Didn't Dan tell you about "DTMFA"? Your advice could have been three paragraphs shorter. I blame Dan and his inadequate job training course.
