NINJA : SILENT ASSASSIN * Final Battleyoutube thumb
Am I the only one who loves Godfrey Ho ninja movies? I remember our old video store had them and 8 year old me always checked out a tape a week. Believe it or not that scene is actually subtle compared to what he usually did.

I'm already seeing SJW howling for his blood for being a straight white able-bodied cis male who snatched the job out of the hands of more deserving comedians like... who exactly? Late Night is meant for only really experienced and well established comedians. You can't just affirmative action in someone obscure because they tick off a lot of diversity boxes. A lot of the SJW's nominees aren't high profile enough, don't have a consistently solid body of work behind them, or just plain aren't funny enough to get a large audience to tune in. And then when the show inevitably tanks because it's not entertaining the SJW would rather blame bigoted American for boycotting the show rather than, you know, the networks' choice not being particularly well suited for the job. Look at the idiots who seriously suggest Jessica Williams deserves to host The Daily Show over Stewart just because she's black and female.

Now if there were a lot of well established female or minority comedians with the same level of popularity as Colbert in the biz, then yeah I'd get some of the complaints. We are starting to see a change with the rise of folks like Tina Fey and Aziz Ansari. But as it is now the only other person at a serious position to compete with Colbert who belongs to any marginalized groups is Ellen Degeneres, and she seems pretty happy with her own thing. Gah, Colbert may have won the Suey Park battle but leave it to Tumblr to try to turn it into a full-fledged war.

I think Tina Fey would make an excellent host. A sexy, excellent host...

He *could* do some of those things; but, just like Conan losing the masturbating bear and other stuff when he went to whatever station he's on now (I forgot), a lot of his schtick is probably tied up with the show, which is likely owned by Viacom.

He'll likely have to leave behind most of his stuff; if we're lucky, he might be able to bring some acts that he hasn't used in some time (like The Threat Board). His character certainly can't go; even before the whole "CancelColbert" bullshit, it was fairly hard-line satire, and that won't sit well with CBS trying to do a super-generic late night talk show.

I will miss him dearly.

Not over Jon but certainly by virtue of being the funniest in the absence of John Oliver.
>> No. 40076
Well I dunno if he's being truthful or just sarky but Arsenio Hall says Letterman wanted him in the running.
>> No. 40077
I don't think any of the current correspondents are that funny, to be honest. I find myself skipping many of their segments these days. The one exception is Jason Jones, because he's done a lot of interesting exposes recently. He certainly has the interviewing chops, but I don't know that he would be able to do the host bit otherwise.

Jon Oliver would have been a shoe-in after his run hosting TDS (and I think he would shine on his own; he was basically "British John Stewart" during the run), but he's with HBO now. Of course, the switch is a year off, so perhaps he would be able to come back?

John Hodgeman would make an excellent replacement for Colbert, character-wise, but I think he's doing other projects right now as well.

All of this assume that CC will do a replacement. Perhaps they'll just fill it in with something else and go back to having only one news show.
>> No. 40078

>> No. 40080
The Colbert/Carell/Helms/Corddry/Bee/Jones days were the best. And Bee and Jones are generally a lot better than most of the new correspondents. I think if they got their own Daily Show spinoff together as cohosts it could be good. And it would help with the diversity thing too, since out of all the non-majority correspondents who are still left Mandvi isn't good enough to host on his own.
>> No. 40083
I doubt it, I read in some articles Letterman actually had some involvement in picking Colbert. And besides a recent survey showed that Hall was the least well-liked late night host, while Colbert was number one. It's not hard to see why they'd gun for him from the getgo.

> I think if they got their own Daily Show spinoff together as cohosts it could be good.
Kind of like a "Weekend Update", but a half hour and on weeknights. I would watch it, though the interviews (if any) would be odd: how do you have two people interview one guest at the same time? Maybe do more of the "round table" style setups, where they bring in multiple guests and just kind of moderate the discussion? (But then how do you plug a book/movie?)

I doubt it, they'll probably go for a comprehensive clean slate. As sad as I am to see Thrawn be de-canonised, I'll gladly accept any sacrifice that ensures the EU dies in a massive fire.

Well, they don't plan on de-canonizing EVERYTHING. The people in charge have said they'll use the EU as a "resource" (which basically means they'll gank stuff from the EU when they feel like it and use it in new canon material).

The EU basically became its own alternate universe thanks to this announcement.

Watched the pilot episode of This Week Tonight. It was basically The Daily Show but on HBO, except I don't usually like TDS but still thought this pilot was pretty funny. I think I'll watch the next few episodes to see if they can keep it up.

Thinking it over this direction they are taking is likely because JJ Abrams had his damned fanction script he'd been dreaming up since he was a kid and he wants that regardless of the EU. Thankfully there is Rebels

John Oliver is an overall much better host than current-day Jon Stewart. Stewart may be pretty intelligent and deft at political debates but he's just not a very good performer.
>> No. 40200
I disagree, I always liked Stewart's earnesty as a performer.

That said I do agree to liking Oliver's new show more, I did not expect his show to be going so straight for the jugular tone, an almost Louis C.K. style played straight as except as a news report.

I'll buy that Amazing Spider-Man 2 isn't good, but this is just melodramatic.

Amen to that. For what good there was, there was even more crap. Kyle Katarn and KotOR are a small price to pay to wipe Starkiller, Waru, and the Yuuzhan Vong from the record.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is the most entertaining and frustrating movie I've seen in theaters. There were so many great Spidey moments in this film, but all the subplots barely go anywhere or tie up in a satisfying way. There's three plots in ASM2 that would have made fine future films, but for whatever reason, it's all crammed up in one. It's like director Marc Webb thought Sony were going to take Spider-Man away from him and he had to include everything he wanted to do with the franchise in the sequel.

I still recommend seeing it, because there are great scenes and performances here, but I'm not gonna pretend this is a perfect film. It's excessive and convoluted, but damn, I still had fun seeing it.
