  1. I imagine a lot of the friendly faces you are missing did indeed leave after we cracked down on trolling. We are perfectly fine with a community that is smaller but better to be in than a community that is larger but toxic. But I know you like your data so I'm going to share some with you. We can actually track community activity. The site lists this as "The total number of members who submitted new content, followed something, or reacted to something on the community in the specified time period." Our data for February 2020: 578 (down from 593 in 2019...not a significa

  2. Yes solid considering the circumstances. This is a box office/movie forum. There is less theatrical movie news and no box office. If you really think we wouldn't have lost a lot of members and activity over that, then I think you have confused why a large portion of the community did come to this site for: to discuss how their movies are doing and how future movies will do. I can tell you right now that over the years, activity on this site has gone up when the box office is doing really well and tapered when the box office is slow. There is a direct correlation with how movies are doing and t

  3. I definitely encourage you to do more of these! And not just negative reviews but also of movies you like! I'm also hoping Suicide Squad is better than this mess (can't be that hard). I also think it would be interesting to get your thoughts when Civil War comes out! Anyways, I was thinking about this and I realized something. It isn't just Supergirl/The Flash cross-over (as well as the Flash/Arrow cross-overs which also have a contrast between a light hero and a far darker hero) who did it a lot better. It was Daredevil. People pointed out that Daredevil S1 was what S1 Got

  4. Except the fact that Steve and Tony haven't reconciled is the resolution for that plot thread in this movie. If you strip it down to the bone, there are ultimately only two ways that plot thread could've ended here. Either Steve and Tony reconcile or they don't. They didn't. That's the resolution. It may not be the ultimate resolution for plot in the MCU as a whole, if they reconcile in later stories, but that is the resolution for this movie. That's a fact. You claiming 'Oh they might reconcile more in later movies' doesn't stop it from being the resolution in this movie.

  5. Bit of a Catch-22 you've got going on there. If they have a happy ending, it's 'too safe', if they have don't have a happy ending then it's 'zero resolution'. Both are completely incorrect, mind. This movie has a resolution. It's not a happy one and it deliberately leaves some things ambiguous, but it's still a resolution. Also, just because the movie isn't catering to the specific risks you want, doesn't mean it's still not taking risks. It's still a Bittersweet/Downer ending which ends with half the team on the run and, despite hints that they might be able to reform, Cap and Ton

  6. I love that Wonder Woman wants her picture. A digital picture. Not a framed picture. She doesn't even want to destroy Lex's data storage because he's collecting all this information. No, she just wants to copy a f***ing jpeg!

  7. These are interesting numbers! What about activity of those members? Correct me if I'm wrong @JamesCameronScholar but it seems like you were pointing out the total activity/posts happening, rather than the unique people who made a single or more 'impression' (potentially not even posting!). I know I'll appear the same this month as I did last year using these metrics, but the reality is I was far more active last year. Just using the eye-test the number of posts seems way down and the front page seems slow. I reckon it will all pick up though! : ) When big t

  9. go back and read my first post, I was obviously talking about the comment you made about other people's opinion, so of course I would use 'it's my opinion' card. Anyway, I think I have made my points clear.

  10. "If they have a happy ending, it's 'too safe', if they have don't have a happy ending then it's 'zero resolution." Nope, didn't say that. Thousands of people die, governments around the world proposes regulations to ease the tensions, superheroes fight over personal problems, the end. Civil War ends in the same way it started on that issue. No resolution. It even leaves Tony and Steve reconciliation to the next episode. No resolution about that either. Now, I might reevaluate Civil War if Stark and Rogers don't become buddies again in the next chapter. "Half of the team

  11. Agree with some points, disagree strongly with others. "The bad guy won. How's that for the 'Marvel always plays it safe story-wise' crowd" It is still safe, no risks whatsoever were taken. First because there was zero resolution, second we just know they will make amends and get together to fight Thanos in IW. Risky would be killing one of the major players (they didn't even the balls to kill War Machine), risky would be one of the sides actually breaking with the whole moral conflict, risky would breaking the Marvel mold of doing movies.

  13. I think he found out when he went to the alien ship and was "tell me all you know about all the knowledge you've gathered from hundreds of planets." I mean Clark Kent's identity. No idea how he found out that Bruce Wayne was Batman but.....Bruce Wayne did keep the Bat signal at the destroyed Wayne Manor so (that's where it was, right? or was it a warehouse?).....so.... He's unpredictable because you never know when he's going to shove a jolly rancher in your mouth! By the way there was a missed chance for adding tension to the Ba

  14. I loved that some user got so mad when I pointed out Wonder Woman was irrelevant. As for Batman? I mean he did save Martha. So he has that going for him.

  15. "Batman could've easily been written out of this movie." -- Yeah, it really feels like 3-in-1: BvS - Supes' position in our world and Bats' different ideology, MoS2 - Lex hating Supes and creating Doomsday, The Trinity - introducing Wonder Woman and that whole DC world-building.

  18. There are times when adding scenes can improve a movie. This is not one of those times. I don't want more Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Pondering to go through in re-watches.

  25. 597 to 'around 300'. I guess if you see a nearly 50% drop as 'solid', personally I'd say those numbers prove my initial speculations correct, so thank you, and I do appreciate you sharing those numbers. I'll stick around to see how the Avatar 2 thread ticks along I suppose, unless it gets nuked (or if the site continues its decline maybe it'll just shutter - I hope not). And again, I don't 'seem to think' people are 'fleeing' the site, seems plain as day to me, and you (based on your own numbers), that they are. It's a real shame.
