I'm like a trailer hound so a lot of times I'm obsessively checking Facebook, Twitter and Youtube for new movie trailers. Usually I find out first about a new trailer on Facebook. I don't always check or get my notifications right away so sometimes I'm left gobsmacked, wondering "HOW IN THE EFF DID I MISS THIS?!"

This comes from a conversation me and Tyrant were having. We'd just seen Aquaman and during it, there was a trailer for Shazam and Captain Marvel. The conversation went like this:

"There were some pretty good trailers this time."
"It looks like they're doing a really good job with Captain Marvel."
"Yeah, we need to see that one."
"I read an article online that concluded she's more powerful than a Super Sayan."
"She!?"

Sounds like you're a fake geek boy to me, Pak. ;)

Yeah, I didn't know Captain Marvel was a girl. Is that new?

I was just making a joke, but Carol Danvers has been Captain Marvel for about six or seven years now.
FINE

See the problem here is that Shazam is ALSO Captain Marvel, so we were talking about 2 different movies without knowing it.

Right, but one of them is a DC movie, so the simple solution is to just not talk about it.

But the movie (at least in the trailers so far) doesn't mention that, and it's not the title. So you'd have to actually be at least somewhat of a comic book nerd to even know that.

And yet, DC decided to name their movie Shazam and not Captain Marvel. On Facebook I am seeing a lot of trolls trying to incite arguments/debates about who's the REAL Captain Marvel, or whatever, point being right now all I care about is Marvel's Captain Marvel. All DC fans are doing is making me more glad that I am deciding to let go of anymore DC films.

Yeah, that's why I called out comic nerds in my original post. I'm actually more interested in Shazam than most DC titles because Jeff Smith (of Bone fame) did a memorable miniseries starring him that I adored. But as for which movie I think will be better, I'm sure the winner is going to be Marvel's Captain Marvel.

So the movie of Pink Floyd: The Wall is not available on Blu-Ray ???
Thought I had a DVD of it but it must've been a VHS copy that is now stored in my attic :-\

Is that not what you'd expected to see?

So obviously nobody buys Funko Cereal for the cereal, but they could try a LITTLE bit. It tastes like Froot Loops, but without the Froot.

(For the uninitiated, Funko has been releasing limited-edition cereal to various niche stores with mini Funko figures inside. They released a Pac-Man cereal, and I kind of had to.)

Lol.  Pretty sure Isaac's trying to deny he was ever on the Rifftrax forum.
