I donít know anything about the movie, but telling from the poster I assume itís a combination of Predator and Poltergeist 3.

I like that they put Carrie Fisher in the center of the poster. A nice gesture.

PS: Funny thing I learned by Googling "Odessa Twin Peaks," there's a Hooters-esque sports bar in Odessa, TX named Twin Peaks.

They're all over the place down here. And they're Pacific Northwest/Rocky Mountains/lumberjack themed too so it's like being in the show itself! (And depending on which one you go to there might even be a biker bar fight scene!)

Character Cove / Re: Whats stopping Serpico from one shotting Zodd?
« on: July 21, 2017, 11:27:37 PM »
While Serpico effortlessly slices and dices the "lesser" creatures he faces, when it comes to larger or more powerful foes his sword proves to be less effective.  During the battle at Flora's mansion, Serpico uses the sword to attack an apostle.  He is able to blind him (which is his goal), but the sword doesn't slice through the apostle's head.

Now you could argue that since Serpico just tries to blind the apostle he doesn't use the sword's "full strength" hence why the wind slash doesn't slice through the apostle's head.  However, if you notice Serpico never uses the sword's power against the apostles before or after that incident, even when he's in severe danger.  This implies that either Serpico doesn't believe the sword's slashes alone can defeat apostles or he knows the sword's slashes alone can't defeat apostles.  And given the fact he has enough faith in the sword's abilities to try and use it against foes who objectively far outmatch him (Daiba and the Kundalini, for example) I sincerely doubt that the former is the case at Flora's mansion.

I believe this view is reinforced by the group's first encounter with the Makara.  Serpico doesn't try to slice it in half or cut off its trunk or tail or legs.  He tries to blind it, the same strategy he uses against the apostle.  To me this implies that in both cases Serpico knows he can't outright slice through them like they're trolls or Daka so he tries to hinder them instead.  (Also it's worth mentioning that not only can Serpico not slice through the Makara but it's faster than him as well, counterattacking before Serpico can blind it and nearly killing him in the process.)

With the exception of the Sea God and arguably the Daiba/Kundalini duo, Zodd is far faster, stronger, and tougher than anything Serpico has faced.  Zodd could take multiple shots from Ganishka's lightning, which has the power to kill the weakest apostles almost instantly.  If Zodd can take that kind of punishment from Ganishka's lightning then Serpico's sword's powers probably wouldn't cause him too many problems, much less decapitate him with one slice.

It looks great! That'd make a nice death metal album cover!

I love Miura's illustrations, especially the walrus knights (talk about a Northern country!) and the Nordic designs incorporated into the clothes/armor of Grunbeld's friends.

Even though I agree an episode in the manga would've been better, I appreciate that we can infer the backstory solely from the illustrations without having to read the novel. The illustrations taken together are almost like a small episode itself, one Miura created outside the main story to satisfy our backstory curiosity. It's not preferable, but thinking of it like that makes it palatable to me.

But then again, I felt the backstory information we got in the manga was sufficient.

This would have been great in the manga... :sad:

Agreed.  :sad:

Maybe I'm alone in this, but SotC looks so iconic and beautiful that I'm a little offended they felt it needed a complete remake at all.

You're not alone.

And what have they done to my poor Wander?! He looks like Karl Pilkington with a wig.  :magni:

My advice is the less time you spend in Milan, the better. Enjoy :)

What's your favorite European cities?

Have fun on your trip, Incantation! I won't ask you to do it, but if you run into any fashion models in Milan I won't complain if you give them my number.  :carcus:

I'm finally starting RE7 today. Here we go. :sad:

That was an interesting game.

I'll probably go back to playing Star Wars Battlefront, my safety blanket game, now.

I loved the ending of this episode as well as Kim's thousand yard stare at dinner and that woman at the meeting telling Mike how much her husband's unknown fate destroyed her, the same situation Mike's loved ones find themselves in after Walter kills him.

Got a few of the Necromancer sets completed in the beta. I like the character, he has a lot of skills from Diablo 2 like Summon Skeletons (duh), Skeletal Mage, Golem, Bone Spear, and Corpse Explosion. I've probably got 35-40 hours on the character now, it's made D3 a bit refreshing.

I'm sincerely surprised they added the Necro to the game. When they revealed the Witch Doctor as D3's pet mage and said they might add the Necro at a later date I figured it'd never happen.

I never played D3 so let me ask you something. Is D3's Necro better than the Witch Doctor?

Star Wars Battlefront 2. I can't wait. It's spanning all three generations so I'm really hoping Count Dooku will be playable in this one. The story mode doesn't tickle my pickle too much, but considering the first game had no story mode at all I'll take what I can get.

Great posts, Oburi and Walter! I agree with you two. Twin Peaks does peter off after Laura's killer is revealed. (According to the show's Wikipedia page, that was due to the network throwing a wrench in their machine which is sad if true.) In my opinion, up until that point the show is second to none.

Gob and I will be going to a viewing party at a friend's house for it. I'm bringing the donut stacks. :beast:

I'm jealous! It sounds like you two are going to have so much fun!

I hate to parrot everyone else, but I too am looking forward to Twin Peaks. Huge fan of the original. I just need to figure out how to get Showtime.

How awesome is it that so many cast members from the original show are back? I love it.

I take that as a sign that Colin Trevorrow is calling Johnson right now demanding some changes to make sure TLJ doesn't hinder his chances of making a real shitty movie.

That's who's directing Episode 9?! Well that's. . . uh. . . Fuck.

What, that's the wrong episode to enjoy in the critically acclaimed prequel trilogy tie-in cartoon? :iva:

You can enjoy whatever you want.

It sure doesn't hurt. Though, I really don't like that they moved the scar so dramatically, to the point that it couldn't conceivably have been the result of the wound in the previous movie. I'm fine with them fudging it, but just move it off his nose, not from the bridge to somehow over his eye (which I'm pretty sure would have blinded him in any case =). Also, it's just the most cliche of bad guy scars and far too thin and dainty. I like the head-canon theory that he healed it and then did a cooler scar himself. =)

I just reread my post and realized I didn't clarify what I was talking about. I was talking solely about his R2D2 request.
