I wouldn't mind seeing Warren Ellis tackle Ninja Gaiden. His work on Moon Knight and Karnak reminds me of how Ryu should be handled.

I think NG3 was going for a more reflective and sincere vibe that the games hadn't earned. Mostly because the Itagaki era didn't really care about storytelling.

So maybe something similar like a Buddy cop comedy between Ryu and another character would've worked better. You gotta crawl before you could run.

Bringing over the DOA cast would've been perfect. They have more bombastic personalities and they would play off Ryu's restrainted demeanor well. Plus just making the DOATeC company a front for the Lords of Alchemy is potentially interesting.

Bring back Eric Roberts as Donavan and just let him work his magic.

If you wanna keep the introspective character work, just swap Ryu for Kasumi. She is a more reluctant fighter so forcing her to kill to save the world is a more interesting plot.

Hayate also works.

Behold, the fastest law student ever: wrote a scientific article analysis in 25 minutes. :ROFL:

(It was a very poor article, IMO.)

I'm convinced that there's a street racing cabal near where I live. There's a parking lot I pass to go to work that has a bunch of guys with custom cars every couple of nights around 9 that hang out, and I'll occassionally see groups of 3 or 4 cars driving past in a line. Not at blazing racing speeds but pretty fast and unusually quiet, like they're on their way to some place to burn asphalt.

I should show up in my prius and smoke em

You wrote a vomit draft. ;)
Hope not, I handed it over already... :ROFL:

My current record is writing a 15-page legal analysis in English (aka not my native language) in two days, getting max points from it, and praised by the professor with words "Your essay was exceptionally high-quality analysis, and I can see you really have a sophisticated approach in your deliberation here". Little did he know how I bashed it together, powered with coffee and chocolate, hardly even proofreading it...

For my defense, I have to say I LOVE writing essays – the more analytical the topic is, the better – but this was one of the times when I just had a bit too much deadlines breathing on my neck, and I had to make some sacrifices in terms of where do I want to get a good grade and where it doesn't matter. Or at least I thought it was a sacrifice...

Flash saves lives more substantially everywhere else in the movie. A boob joke that the actors weren't comfortable with wasn't needed just because the director has a kink.

Look, it's not anyone else's fault you haven't paid attention to anything actors have been saying in the past however-long. Whedon's been an ass to people since the 90s on the set of Buffy, no one in Marvel had anything nice to say about him or come to his defense, his Wonder Woman script from 2006 got rejected and he's been a bitter, petty man about how Marvel Studios treated him for Age of Ultron and its critical reception. He's dumb. That's it. It's not "sudden".

So of course you don't know. That's not an excuse.

I didn't know any of that. But overall the scene is dumb but innocent at best. I didn't see it as a "boob" joke. I guess it is but it isn't evil.
I think Gal is just being a bit overboard. She lied down and cracked a smile. I don't see why she was uncomfortable, again non of this was evil intentions.

Me: "Ouch!"
Spouse: "What happened?"
Me: "I accidentally hurt my finger :( Now there's blood under my nail"
Spouse: "With nail cutters? :O"
Me: "With a dental floss holder"
Spouse:
Spouse: "... how, my love, how"

I think he's not that surprised tho...

apparently the big 3 threats in the MCU are "aliens, androids, wizards".

I guess Dr. Strange had a bigger impact than I thought.

Again, it's not anyone else's fault you haven't paid attention. Try doing that right now.

First, Gal did not "go overboard". She refused to do a scene and Joss Whedon, a grown man who does not need to reuse a gag scene he already used in Age of Ultron-- because the gag serves no purpose to the plot and is a waste of time-- hired the stunt double to do the scene and wasted everyone's time adding a 90s-harem-anime gag instead of working on making the rest of the film not be trash.

Second, she objected to lines he was making her record in ADR and in his infinite wisdom he decided to lock her in her room and threaten her to say the line or else he'd jeopardize her career as well as Patty Jenkins's career. He then went onto brag on set about how he "had it out" for her and how he would make her look stupid in the movie and interfere with WW84 as he did Justice League. All of this and his difficulties with the other actors made rounds in comic book movie leak/rumor circles since at least 2018 and was confirmed recently in the trades.

Did you know, poor or questionable dialogue isn't worth locking someone in a room and threatening their career over it? Shocking, I know! In fact, intentionally and unlawfully restricting someone's freedom of movement, say, by locking them in a room, is called "false imprisonment" and is a crime and a civil wrong. So not only is it an unprofessional move, it's not even legal!

At any point after admitting you didn't know the context of why the scene came about, you had two options:
1) Look it up. Reserve your opinion until you've looked it up. This information is readily available, and you have no imperative to pop off about things you're ignorant about.
2) If you refused to do 1, drop the subject without making value statements towards/against any particular party.

You did neither. You instead went to defense of an ill-tempered director, making absolute statements going contrary to reported truth ("none of this was evil intentions"? really?), just because you wanted to broadcast that you liked an unnecessary breast gag. You tried to make the actress involved seem unreasonable over an abuse of power directed at her, her stunt double who wound up doing the scene, and a director the actress was working with in another movie, when at least two out of three of those people went straight to the chairman over it and handled their business.

You should've known better three posts ago.

@Xeroxis Er... They don't seem to be loading. ^^; I don't have the steadiest hands, so I can imagine how frustrating it can be at times. Makes time go faster though, I bet?

CT: ...And officially back into a full lockdown. Sort of. Schools remain open in our district, confusingly enough--but everything else is curbside pick-up or essentials, only.

I'll try again when I'm on PC, maybe that's the problem

There was a time when I never knew that there's such a thing as a "director's cut".
And then I randomly watched Aliens while at a friend's house one time and I was surprised to see random scenes that I don't remember seeing before (like the one with the automated turrets).
That was my first experience with a "Director's Cut" version of movie.
(I watched it during mid-90's).

If Jak hadn't gone renegade in Jak 2, it would've probably gone down a different path, being like Tak and the power of Juju.

Jak and the Power of Juju?

Trying this again

I like painting miniatures! I mostly do Warhammer 40k, but I'll play around with some other things too. They're fairly small, about an inch or so.

And here's a Civil War miniature I did for a relative, it's not really my thing but it was good practice for cloth and flesh tones.

They look great! I have all the fine motor skills of a hippo wearing prosthetic arms on their heads...cannot even colour in the lines with a kids book. Does it take you very long?

CT: eldest niece is being a brat...of course, her version of events will mean it's everyone else's fault and my sister will believe her over anyone's view. Sigh...

Thanks! Yeah, it takes me awhile. I get picky, so I end up making lots of fixes and adjustments.
