If you came here to find out when the best bathroom breaks are, they are before the great Marvel logo and after the end credits.
Wow. Just wow. Man. We skipped the Spring and just hit Summer blockbuster season way early.
Kevin Feige, Joe and Anthony Russo have been masterful custodians of their iconic charge Stan Lee left them with. This is their astonishing love letter to the fans.
This is a modern EPIC in terms of sheer spectacle, visually and in story arc. And thankfully, “Endgame” is one of these summer hero-fests that revels in its present rather than looking to the future.
Go to the movie with expectations, and have those expectations ripped to girlie man shreds like Bruce Banner’s skinny jeans on Hulk’s worst time of the month. It’s been 11 long years since Robert Downey nailed it and truthfully uttered “I am Iron Man,” and we have had many heroes’ journeys since then, “Endgame” is that big of a payoff.
The main characters here, while heroic, are seen at their most human, weighing loss and life, in many ways mirroring their comic book page selves. They don’t stand apart from us, rather they are among the very best of us.
The film allows for meaningful character moments across the board: Robert Downey and Chris Evans shine like the all-stars they have always been, but the rest of the cast also do some of their superhero best. And yes, Hawkeye gets his screen time in this one. It’s akin to having small mini movies inside this larger epic. There are certainly character driven moments aplenty.
“Endgame” dives into the dark corners and lifts you up with cathartic comedy. Those fans who are looking for callbacks, fanboy/girl moments and Easter eggs from older movies will be quite happy and rewarded for doing their homework. There are a couple of scenes that feel like a Jack Kirby page brought to life.
So here’s a big THANK YOU to the show runners, directors, writers, cast and crew, and to my fellow fans. This IS the Marvel movie we have been waiting for.
And somewhere out there, Stan ‘The Man’ Lee is smiling broadly. His babies are in good hands. And have grown some.
Please help me enjoy the changes in Pathfinder 2.0 more than I have the events of The Last Jedi.
More The Empire Strikes Back, less The Phantom Menace. We cool?
May The Force Be With this playtest.
By fate, fortune, ill luck or (Dark) gods’ design you are (as far as you know), the sole one of your kind in all Golarion, maybe in the world’s history. No DC Dungeonering will ever touch you.
What is your name?
What would you set out to do?
What are your goals, ambitions and plots? Oh my!
Where would you create your guild/nation/empire?
Who would you ally with?
What, if any, AP would you show up in?
Please feel free to elaborate.
If you can give this is a worthy cause. May we be the generation that staves off/cures/Single Reactor Ignitions autism.
Nicley done sir.
[I am sure we will be seeing the winner on the big screen come Episode IX]
Hi all, I have access to the following campaigns,
Elemental Evil, Rage of Demons, Return to Ravenloft, Stormking's Thunder, Tales from the Yawning Portal, and Tyranny of Dragons.
I don't want to read them all as I would like to eventually want to play in one or two of them.
But I do want to either take story inspiration or run one of the campaigns.
For the DMs who may have run or read through the above, which story and plot arcs did you find intriguing and well written as to be satisfying and fulfilling to run for your players?
One of the great things about Gencon is getting to meet the creators, authors and artists of all the games we love.
I was lucky enough to get to play Star Wars Legion with the game's very enthusiastic and humble creator, who is still in awe of getting to be able to create this game from the ground up. I gushed over the beautifully sculpted models Fantasy Flight have been making (have you seen X-Wing's Corellian Corvette!), and he was very interested in the encyclopedia of lore West End Games brought forth to the game during my time with them.
Between Imperial Assault, Armada and now Legion, Fantasy Flight is devouring my gaming budget like a Hutt cheating on a diet.
Says it in the title. Please help me build an overpowered Swashbuckler for Curse of the Crimson Throne.
Because DM thinks we are optimizers and veterans, to keep it challenging he is keeping us 3 levels below Level AP. We will end the AP at level 15, and keeping wealth below norm.
20 point buy, 2 traits. I want to go Human or Aasimar.
