    Not gonna lie, looking forward to MI5. Tom Cruise is one sexy 75 year old.

    At least their name is pretty cool? And maybe with all the talent pointed in their direction, they'll be seen as kind of a colorful palimpsest to be wiped clean and scribbled on, sort of like what that Abnett guy did with the Guardians of the Galaxy....That franchise, to me, seemed pretty dull and goofy at its inception, but they used the framework to grow some pretty intriguing characters and relationships that they were able to maximize in the film version. So maybe, hopefully, Marvel has a clear vision in mind, something beyond pure spite, and it will all just depend on the talent involved, not the characters or even the premise. (?)

    Keep hope alive, I guess.

    Also, a special appeal to those who know about X-Men comics:


    What should I read next? I finished the entire New X-Men and then Astonishing. I'm thinking the Ultimate series might be a good bet because of the mix of talent involved (Millar, Bendis, Kirkman, and then Nick Spencer) -- but I wonder if there's something a little more cannon or classic -- like Uncanny or X-Men -- I should be reading first. Any brief thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated, thx :slayer:

    The opposite of ^ in style is probably Europa Report, which was, nonetheless, a good movie. Streamable on Netflix at the moment.

    I re-watched Europa Report and Apollo 18 a few weeks ago. Both pretty decent stuff. I think Europa Report slightly edges out Apollo 18, but again, I enjoyed both.

    Have you seen Chris Hadfield's Space Oddity video?
    Apart from showing how much Europa Report used the ISS as a model, it is awesome.

    Europa Report was excellent. They did a great job of keeping the space travel grounded and realistic.

    I heard Apollo 18 was garbage.

    If you like Bendis' writing then I would give his current run on X-men a shot. Just be warned he's not the best writer when it comes to team books. Ends up giving everyone the same voice. His solo character stories are excellent.

    If you want to remember one of the better 90's comic events I would track down the trades of Age of Apocalypse.

    I enjoyed the classic stuff and the Guardians of the Galaxy reboot was great sci-fi. Not a fan of how they have transposed the movie personalities of the characters to the current comic run. They also need to lay off putting Rocket everywhere.

    If Rocket were a mutant, we wouldn't be having this conversation!

    I kind of enjoy the found footage genre, so your mileage may vary.

    Solid casting. He should do well in the roll. My hope is his character gets spun out to his own show.
