I still don't get why most people don't like Iron Man 2.  I mean, sure, I didn't much care for it, but it was for personal BS, particularly in that Tony kept not telling his friends what was wrong with him and made things worse as a result, but everything else was fine.  I also have yet to see the Hulk movie, though I'm still hoping for a Hulk 2 starring Mark Ruffalo, especially since his role in The Avengers revitalized interest in the Hulk!  The rest of the list makes sense, though I get the feeling Bob likes the first Captain America a bit TOO much.  Like the thing most people complained about with the first one, he basically said with the first Iron Man, just replace "Iron Man goes to the Middle Eastern village" with "Captain America saves the troops from the HYDRA base" and that's pretty much the most common complaint I see out of that movie.

My thoughts on the latest MLP:FiM episode.
Right, so I watched Testing, Testing 1, 2, 3 after watching last week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., which, along with this week's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is tied in with what happens in Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  That, ...

My thoughts on the latest MLP episode.
God dammit I hate my procrastinating nature.  I had a big list of things I want to get done, watching this episode and commenting on it being one of them, but now it's so late...  But I don't want to put this off any longer, ...

Many happy returns of the day, Eeyore-er, Batman. :P
This is actually going to be an incredibly short post for once!  Apparently, according to the Hub Network's Facebook page, today (or perhaps yesterday) marks the 7th anniversary of Batman's first appearance in Detective Comic...

My thoughts on the latest Friendship is Magic episode.  Read if you're interesting...
So I saw For Whom the Sweetie Belle Toils earlier today...  Incidentally, many say it's a reference to the Ernest Hemmingway novel For Whom the Bell Tolls, but THAT was originally a line from Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions...

My in-depth thoughts on the Super Smash Bros. Direct!
Alright, so...  This past Tuesday, there was a special Super Smash Bros.-themed Nintendo Direct, in which a lot of things were revealed for the new Super Smash Bros. games for the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.  I've have a lot of t...

For all the good things Bob said about the prequels here, my favorite bits were when he tore into them and berated the characters for acting so stupid.  My favorite bit was when Bob commented that he was genuinely surprised that Qui-Gon Jinn didn't turn out to Sideous's apprentice.  It's almost as if he's saying "No, he's not actually working for the bad guys, he really is THAT DUMB!"  Hey maybe that's why they call him "Qui-Gon Jinn"...  'Cause he's always drinking gin...  RedLetterMedia reference, likely that I'm not the first, sorry about that.  Either way, great video!

I'm actually not sad about what he said about Harry Potter, because it's actually kind of true...  not to mention, he actually apologized for it, unlike other Internet personalities who basically say the same thing without remorse (the Nostalgia Critic and Nostalgia Chick come to mine).  Nice cliffhanger at the end, though now everyone assumes he's either joking because it's April Fool's Day or already upset that he's going to say something positive about the Star Wars prequels, despite Bob saying that they ALMOST got it right.  ALMOST, not 100%.

Really intrigued by this movie...  Also, you're going to talk about the new TMNT trailer on MONDAY?  What, has The Big Picture moved to Mondays now?  Also, yeah, new Green Goblin looks stupid, but then again, Sam Raimi's Green Goblin kind of looked ridiculous as well...  though then it was more acceptable, given the campy nature of his movies.

I like how Bob says "THE French Revolution", like there's just one. Yeah, I know he's referring to the more well-known one, but France had a LOT of revolutions back in it's day, most of them very bloody and not amounting to a whole lot...

Also, how could this guy be "the first superhero" when Greek mythology is pretty much the basis for a lot of superheroes?
