  1. I'm probably an outlier, but I always thought that John Bernthal was a TERRIBLE choice to play the Punisher. He doesn't look the part, and the script gave him NOTHING to do but grunt or speak in a montone voice,
  2. They should have called them "TOTAL CRAP."
  3. I don't know, Lynda Carter looked GREAT doing it on her show. On the other hand, watching Keaton, Kilmer, Clooney, and Bale beating up bad guys in a black-rubber muscle suit, that got silly. But Linda Carter's show had a campy appeal that neither DC nor the fans will want for WW's big-screen debut. In addition, the athleticism and stunts utilized today are far more hyperkinetic than in 1976.
  4. Honestly...Meh. The production values were good, but in my honest opinion, WONDER WOMAN will never work on the big screen as long as she's wearing the classic costume. It just looks ridiculous watching a woman in a bathing suit beat-up guys with machine guns. Yes...its a classic costume, and it looks great on paper. But on-screen? It's silly. Keep the tiara. Keep the colors. But fix the rest.
  5. Honestly, Gotham without Batman is like...well, I dunno', but it ain't that interestin'...
  6. Good point, but not necessarily. Stealing highly expensive stuff is an immediate red-flag. Making sure I pay for something I previously signed-up for isn't...
  7. SOOOOOOOOO freakin' true, it's scary...
  8. Not sure I'll stick with it; it had way to many Whedon-esque "cutesy-pie" moments. That's one of the reasons I LOATHED Buffy. Coulson is more of a lightweight character here, not the more serious spy-guy he was in the movies. And YES...he's an LMD.
  9. So in reality, it's just another cop-show that occasionally features Batman??? Sounds dumb; fans will want Batman...not plain ole' cops.
  10. I had previously spoken with the CC-company to make sure they specifically DID NOT process any charge from MATTY/D-R. It was their ideas to cancel the card and re-issue with a new number because MATTY/D-R wouldn't be able to process it, and they were correct: The CLUB INFINITE EARTH membership was canceled when they couldn't get payment. As far as following through is concerned...that's not really relevant. I wasn't asking for my original membership fee to be refunded, I was telling them that I did not want to receive anymore figures. They claimed that you can't back-out per their contract. I checked with a Lawyer-friend who informed me that this kind of language is NOT legally binding since you can't force someone to pay for something they don't wish to buy especially when that thing has not been produced and delivered (unless you're the Federal Gov't, but that's a whole different story...) Well I am no lawyer, but based on what you've told us this seems to be a dispute over a credit card transaction between you, Digtal River and your Credit Card company and not some kind of criminal activity where someone is hacking into your account or selling your credit card number off to the highest bidder which is what your topic title and initial post made it seem like to me. I hope you get it straightened out though. OK, but the explain why MattyCollector/Digital River CANNOT (or will not) explain how they got the information? If they got it from the bank/credit card company, then they'd simply say "We got it from the credit card company when we pursued the charge." Additionally, that doesn't explain WHY they didn't pursue the Club Infinite Earth's sub when the credit card number they had no longer worked. My guess is that they got burned by the Club Infinite Earth's sub, and figured out a way to obtain my info. Again...my bank/credit card company stated "We CANNOT give them your number; that's illegal." Hey...think what you want. But if you're telling me that overseas vendors respect US privacy laws, I have some swampland to ell you in Florida... Well the person you were talking to prob didnt have a clue, those CSR people on the phone aren't the ones processing payments and probably clueless and probably have very little idea about how the payment process works let alone be able to give you any kind of intelligent answer about where what information originated from. My guess is the reason you got charged for the Watchman one and not Club Infinite Earth was do to timing. The Watchman charge probably came through as they were canceling the old card and so they honored it. Either that or for some reason Digital River disputed the one and not the other. 99% of all call centers are overseas, that doesn't mean there is criminal activity going on at them. On top of that I don't see how someone sitting in a call center in India or wherever would have any way to access such information, even if they were so inclined. How do you purpose someone who probably is lucky to make minimum wage hacked into your bank account and got your new CC info????? First of all, the CLUB WATCHMEN charge was processed on 9/22; the CLUB INFINITE EARTHS sub was canceled on 9/15. That's an entire week. Secondly, that still doesn't account for HOW my CC# was entered into Matty's system, and I think that's what you're missing. I canceled the credit card BEFORE the 15th, and it would have been inactivated immediately upon cancelation. Third, don't assume that it's the CS-Rep (the "minimum wage" person) who is doing the potential hacking. If illegal activity is occurring, it's directed at a much higher level than a CS-Rep. Corruption is the norm in the 3rd-world, not the exception.
  11. UPDATE: 1. Spoke to bank; they informed me they would NEVER provide a CC# to a 3rd-party vendor. 2. Spoke to MasterCard; they informed me they would NEVER provide a CC# to a 3rd-party vendor. 3. MattyCollector still has NO IDEA how the number got into their system. 4. Mattel claims to be "investigating." 5. Digital River Fraud Dept. called me right back, and are taking this VERY SERIOUSLY. They refunded my "purchase" without being asked, and are investigating. Again...I think that the folks overseas are working - likely unofficially - with an unnamed 3rd party to hack Credit Card #'s. I base this assessment on numbers 1,2,3, and 5 above. DR has the most to lose, since they have contracted with Mattel to run their fulfillment. If one of DR's vendors is dirty, they could lose the business. FYI, I'm NOT the type of person who thinks there's a conspiracy around every corner...I'm just following the leads.
