I'm somewhat reassured that National have said they won't re-privatise the network if they win the election, but I don't trust those bastards, given their history of absolutely neglecting New Zealand's infrastructure.

I just hope this KiwiRail is run by people who have half a clue what they're doing. i.e. Bolger is a political figurehead who just says what smart people tell him to say.

True, but he has to physically fit the bill, too. If anything, I could see him as Mr. Freeze, who is tied to Batman & Robin enough to not be in any other Batman movie. Christian Bale would've been perfect for Anakin, actually. I could see D-Day as Qui-Gonn, but Liam Neeson was awesome in that anyway, so why bother?

It could have been sooooooooo badass. Oh well.

And, yes, Apocalypse and Mr. Sinister should appear in an X-men feature film.

As well as fucking Gambit!

I'm sure I am but, I don't know, I was content with the ones that came out just over ten years ago.
I don't see the need, but then I'm surprised this kind of stuff appeals to people older than about ten anyway.

I've never been into superheroes, to be honest.

It is modern mythology. You should respect that.

Comic books are a pulp art form, like novels or film or anything else. If it's done well, it's done well, if not, then it blows. A lot of the great stuff, especially pertaining to Batman, is pretty dark and for a generally older audience. I wouldn't equate it to modern mythology, but it's still viable entertainment to a great deal of people.

Are comic books popular where you live, too?

Gambit was so fucking cool.

Did anyone watch the old X-Men animated show back in the day?



Amazing cartoon. Great theme music, too. I can still remember the tune, actually, and I'm humming it right now.

My favorite animated show ever. It was so good. The whole series is actually on Youtube.

Good or bad news, Ryan Reynolds is Deadpool. Gambit's an unknown, but that's pretty cool. If the movie makes money, they'd probably get their own spin-offs, too.

I loved the Spidey, Batman, and X-Men cartoons as a kid. I can still hum the X-Men theme.
