    I'm more impressed than anything, it's tiring to read text like that.

    I can't even remotely imagine how that's in any way superior. :shrug: What am I missing?

    If you do less than a full-screen browser it is harder for people to track you on the internet.

    I really don't think so.

    Maybe take the browser discussion to Techforge? This doesn't bear on the MCU.

    Marvel is pulling an "I'll show you!", on Joker, and doing an Oscar push for Robert Downey in Endgame after all.

    Downey was perfect in and for that performance, but it wasn't worthy of an Oscar.

    If he got it, it would be a backdoor lifetime achievement award with Marvel mooching some legitimacy off it.

    Nothin' but love for RDJ, but I have to agree.

    He's very good, to be sure. But what Phoenix is doing in Joker is on a whole 'nother level.

    Haven't seen Joker, so I can't comment on it, but while I was absolutely onboard with RDJ being Iron Man from the moment it was announced, I'm not going to pretend for a moment that any of the Marvel movies were more than light, frothy souffles. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I'm sure we'll all agree that there are times when you want a candy bar and there are other times where you want a steak. I'm sure we'll also all agree that if you really want a candy bar, but all you can get is a steak, you're not going to complain too much. But you're still going to be wanting that candy bar after you have the steak.

    RDJ as Iron Man was basically the perfect candy bar, and anytime I want a candy bar, that's going to be my first choice. But if we're talking about steak, then Iron Man wasn't it. Maybe Joker was, and it might be possible to make a steak out of Iron Man with RDJ (and I think that you'd be hard-pressed to find a better Iron Man than RDJ), but the version of him we've been given so far hasn't been steak level. No diss to either, since both candy bars and steaks are hard to do perfectly. But when you get either version right, you've got some damned tasty eating.

    If Marvel had the balls to do "Demon In A Bottle", where Tony Stark struggles with full blown alcoholism, RDJ could get an Oscar out of that one, easy.
