Re: Who is the girl jumping Dr Mirage in this pic?

I've not been following VEI closely since around 2015 or so, but I am not regretting that choice if on a site for VALIANT fans, there are people who can ask who Kris Hathaway is... Not a slight against Oxmyx, but more a statement of how much VEI under DMG has strayed from the universe for which we a...

Re: BAD IDEA

Maybe they'll pull off what the Image founders tried to do in the 90s but with a more cohesive feel and good writing.

Re: Official Bloodshot Trailer is here!

This trailer has me very excited. I actually like the red glow under the ribcage for the red dot. Does Sony still have rights to all Bloodshot stuff (like the Rai/Blood of Heroes connection)? I hope so, because watching a Rai movie like this would probably be my dream movie. Get some martial arts di...

Re: McFarlane Bloodshot figure prototype at NYCC!

And for the record I couldn't care less either about him being bald either. Its HAIR. The little shave-line pattern is a fun element of his look and all that, but its not a thing that seriously defines the character enough to be concerned about. The baldness doesn't bother me either. I'm just gonna...

It's a frikkin tower of cards... So much of it is, right? Plus, we have to decide whether to make policy that is best for those living today versus what is best for those in the future. Of course, there's also the conceit that there is one stationary policy that is "right." To me, it seems quite po...

One of the funny things about the idea of tax reform/simplification is that if you made the taxation a simple percentage based on income, you would end 1000s of jobs directly in the IRS and many more thousands with the various tax filing companies. Same arguments with universal health care. I say en...

And respectfully we will have to agree to disagree on the minimum wage thing....you do realize that if the 1920s minimum wage was adjusted to modern inflation it'd be like $20 an hour?

But if I started a business, I would never take on Chinese blood money, I just have high standards I guess Yes, because American blood money is just so much better. It's wild to see so much speculation that pretty much assumes that DMG is operated as a arm of the Chinese fascist government. I'm dou...

Re: Why did VEI take the chinese money?

Also, DMG isn't China. It's an American entrepreneur who saw an j tapped business opportunity in China and filled a niche to market American movies there. If DMG is China then Toyota is American.

Re: Why did VEI take the chinese money?

I think the DMG deal was a simple case of DMG had capital to invest and VEI needed an influx of capital to keep producing at the rate they were, attracting bigger names, increase marketing, etc. Plus, DMG was a foot in the door to make movie deals. They were a minority investor and no threat to the ...
