    To be fair, this is a long established trope in comics as well, that the hero's villains reflect him in some way.

    Vinny from the gaming website Vinesauce decided took some out-of-context highlights of early scripts of the Super Mario Bros. movie and decided to give them a voice (Sounding like Walker Boone and Tony Rosato in the process)

    Does anyone else watch movies on their PS4
    or any other similar game console? Because
    I was finally manage to be able to play Blu-Rays on mine.

    I don't think there's really much difference to
    a regular player in terms of definition and sound, but I may be wrong here.

    I do out of convenience. I already have the thing for gaming, so no real reason to burn extra money on DVD player or the like.

    Our oldest HDTV actually didn't have its own Blu-Ray player until we bought our PS4. (Prior to that, I sometimes plugged in my MacBook Pro to watch Blu-Ray Discs.) It and my MacBook Pro's external Blu-Ray drive also currently mark our only Blu-Ray players that can display closed captions, for discs that have those instead of subtitles.

    First things first, they need to get the symbiote look right.

    Nice. I've actually heard that one of the reasons
    why the PS2 was so popular was because it was a cheaper substitute for watching DVDs than most players at the time.

    That is true. My PS2 was also my first DVD player.

    I just watch moments like that and just find it funny to keep in mind he's the same actor who played Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid.

    Well one thing Eric and Peter Parker seem to share in common is they seem to have a thing for red heads.

    oh snap.

    Anyway, needless to say, this show and X-Men didn't have as good character animation as Batman. I'm not so sure how to compare it and X-Men though. This obviously had the wicked computer animation for web-slinging, but both shows seemed to have some pretty stiff looking characters. How about voice acting?

    And while he doesn't play Eric in later appearances, he moves over to Prince Charming in Cinderella 2 and 3

    I almost forgot to make a crack about Logan taking this to an extreme.

    So, interesting thing about 'mother!': This is Aronofsky's first film not to feature his longtime composer/collaborator Clint Mansell.

    But on the other hand, he's still got his other collaborator, cinematographer Matthew Libatique.

    Sorry but I never saw that movie. Your gender standard reconsideration movie song reference jiu jitsu will not work on me.

    Nah, I haven't seen it yet either. I'm waiting for all of the annoying ass teenagers to watch it first.
