Re: Comic Book Related Sub-Forum in SF&F?

Keep in mind I'm not a mod of this forum and I'm not an admin. I'm basically just expressing my thoughts (and since we don't have annual meetings or anything like that, they'll probably read my thoughts by reading this thread).

As for the movies I'm referring to, there's After Earth and there's the Tom Cruise movie. It's actually a sci-fi heavy summer.

Re: Comic Book Related Sub-Forum in SF&F?

Right, should've checked the bottom of the thread page I was just assuming you were.

There is a grade/review discuss for Oblivion.
I may see that next week, mid week.

Pacific Rim doesn't seem to be getting much talk overall though.

I vote no.

My problem with this is that I'm interested in both, and I'd rather not go into two sub forums every time go come here. It's more convenient to have both in a single subforum.

Also it's only in the summer seasons that the are many comic topics because of the movies, they die a lot down during the fall to spring seasons.

Re: Comic Book Related Sub-Forum in SF&F?

I think that maybe all the entertainment forums need to be rearranged. Its not really clear sometimes if a certain movie should go in TV and Media, or in Sci-fi. Oftentimes, two different threads for the same movie get created because people don't check both forums.

Should a movie review for Oblivion go in Sci-fi, or should it go in TV? What about the fact that it was based on a graphic novel?

I have no suggestion for how they should be rearranged, however.

Well, at least as far as the thread I startred is concerned, that was quite some time ago. Over five years! Interestingly, Captain Craig, you chimed in on that thread as saying that you didn't see the need for such a forum.

Post-Marvel Studios film production I've seen a shift in interest AND continual projects to follow. An interesting observation though for sure.

Not to mention the graphic novels/comic books that are not
SF&F in content. A thread about Persepolis, which would normally go in TV&Media, would now go to a SF&F subforum.

Yeah I brought this topic up awhile back too. And Bonz yelled at me!(Well not really, but the powers that be didn't seem receptive to it).
