Your best comment: That Master Chief looks like a pewter figurine. Platinum is not the best colour on a Spartan. — Weapon X
Your best comment: "like a Frazetta painting come to life"....?
Okay, let me be frank about Frank;
Frank Frazetta was one of the most dynamic artistic talents when it came to depicting sword & sorcery fantasy. His evocative style and powerful action scenes are the quintessence of the genre.
Frank Frazetta`s work is AMAZING.
He`s only been dead a little over a year...
Can we please not cheapen this artist`s work by likening it to a summer movie promo ? — CORMAC
Your best comment: As a food service industry professional I am in total awe of this guys work. As a Fangirl: OMG! I gotta know how he did that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! — Alyssabeth
Your best comment: It's called a literary archetype. Joseph Campbell stated that all stories (modern and ancient) all share the same basic structures. The comparison between Harry Potter and Star Wars is used often in English literature classes to show this. — Tamara
Your best comment: Am I the only one who wants a pair of those red-gray suspenders for my blue jeans? — JediTerminator
Your best comment: Bring him back as Data, why not? They could say that he incorporated an aging chip into himself so that he could not only experience emotions via his emotion chip but with his new aging chip he can also finally experience what it's like to grow old; certainly a part of being human that Data would want to explore. Btw, in case anyone can't tell, I am joking. — Riceball
Your best comment: They left out the ultimate power. Telekenesis. Pretty much any other power except invulnerability can be overcome if you can cause a nice brain embolism or heart attack at a distance.
Superman:"I'm here to save the day!"
Telekenetic weanie: "Hmm. Let's just hold that aortic valve open for a sec here (passive valve so superstrength doesn't apply)."
Superman:"Wha...Gurk. Thump." — dkulze
Your best comment: What they've done with Squirrel Girl is what I'd had in mind for Razorback had I continued working on the Marvel novels. My dream scene would have had Razorback and the FF meeting Doctor Doom, and Doom totally ignoring Reed, instead saying something like, "So, Razorback, my worthy adversary, we meet again!"
Ah. Good times... — Steven York
Your best comment: West probably won't have the time to film a cameo. His job as Mayor of Quahog, Rhode Island is keeping him pretty busy. — DoctorWhat
Your best comment: OK, if that synopsis isn't the most pathetically generic combination of words I've seen in years, I don't know what is. It says NOTHING about the Prometheus film. It could describe literally DOZENS of films.
"The film takes a team of scientists and explorers on a thrilling journey that will test their physical and mental limits..." Seriously?
I'll start the list:
Lost in Space
...I could go on, but it's time to pop some firecrackers... — i1patrick
Your best comment: Well what do you expect, don't game on a leather couch. Cloth only guys and remember guys cotton sweats for those long gamming session. Your jeans will thank you later. — Chris
Your best comment: "You know what would save more lives than a year's worth of smacking the Wrecking Crew in the face? Bringing a few paltry billion of that booty down to Midgard"
It's the rareness if gold that gives it its value, suddenly introducing that much gold into the world market would substantially lessen its worth. — robertT
Your best comment: This might be a bit out there but...
Am I the only one who would like to hear this theme done by a Japanese kodo drum company like Kodo or Yamato?
I'd definitely prefer that to the accordion version. — Noemad
