Mrs. Magnet was actually much more excited about this than I was.  That's pretty cool, because she never watched the original or the movie. Anyway, we watched it and really liked it.

Oh, no question about it, GARD....the concept alone just screams Cheeztastic, low budget, SYFY channel movie.  But it could be really good....even though it's a crazy concept.  Just imagine a 300-esque, slow motion-regular speed-back to slow motion scene with Frankenstien, the Werewolf, and Dracula tearing and ripping apart the bodies of Nazi soldiers....just laying waste to dozens and dozens of them.  The Nazis are screaming in terror, panicking, and firing bullets that do nothing....it would be awesome!

I'll start believing it when I see set pics and hear about actors being cast.  Maybe.

I would have thought it would be at least 80 bucks.  A good portion of the ORG is up in arms about Stridor's helmet, but some are OK with it.

Did I mention that I would also love a GRAVE DIGGER movie??  Jesus....how un-PC would that be!!??  It would be boycotted, there would be riots....it would get pretty ugly. 

Anyway, BLACKHAWKS sounds like it could be really epic.

It would be kind of cool if Sgt. Rock and Easy Company made an appearance, but that's doubtful.

If I had my way, there would be a CREATURE COMMANDOS movie featuring GI ROBOT, but that wouldn't work too well with only me and about 6 others buying tickets to see it.

I didn't know a lot about him, but he seemed like a genuinely nice guy.  Rest in peace, Harry.

Exactly, KC.  I would hate for them to go to that much trouble with the 'look' of the show, but then have the story be junk.

KC, I've been reading novels, too.  Mostly Fantasy ( particularly Sword and Planet ) and Sci Fi, with the occasional Western.  It's a funny thing....ALL the novels I read are older....having came out from the 1920s to the 1970s.  I buy all used books, mostly from Amazon.  Most of what I read is now considered sexist, sometimes racist, outdated, full of cliches, and just generally bad.

I guess I have terrible taste.

It's getting hard not to be hopeful about this.  Just saw CHANGELING, STARFIRE, and RAVEN over on CBR.  They were in street clothes, but they still looked pretty good.  They seem to be pulling out all stops for comic accuracy.  Again, let's just hope that the writing and performance is good, too.

I want to see a really good, live action interpretation of Dick Grayson ROBIN so bad that I can taste it.  Granted, he has been handled very well in loads of cartoons, but I want this to work!

A friend and I were recently talking about this very topic.  Nowadays, a lot of comedies are solely about shock value and raunch.  There aren't many that have a cleverness or an actual style to them like Cheers and Seinfeld.  Hardly any take the time to 'build' anything.  I agree that Modern Family is an exception.

Everybody seems to have such a short attention span nowadays.  I've heard Jason Alexander say that Seinfeld probably wouldn't work in this day and age.  I guess it's too easy to flip to something else if the first 30 seconds don't grab you.

You guys have all said it better than I could.

Good list, GARD.  And much more sensible than mine.  I would add Connor Hawke and Tim Drake ROBIN to your list. 
13  The Collector's Life / The Pegs / Re: DC and Mattel 2018: 15 years together. Time to go away or relaunch? on: April 07, 2018, 09:04:45 pm

Wish List

-Kid Flash
-The Warlord
-80s Speedy ( Roy Harper )
-80s AQUALAD
-Rebirth Jay Garrick Flash

Oops.  I thought I deleted Mirror Master.  My bad.  I think I meant TRICKSTER. 

And even though I listed ARSENAL, I'd still love a decent Roy Harper SPEEDY, but there's a better chance of peace in the Middle East.

True enough, Gard ( about Movie figures ).  The thing that irks me is that there have been sooo many characters that have appeared in the Arrowverse that I would LOVE the Comic Accurate versions of:

-Count Vertigo
-Arsenal
-Mirror Master
-Heatwave
-Weather Wizard
-The Top
-Merlyn
-Killer Frost
-Richard Dragon

And probably a few more I'm forgetting.  think.gif
