@TheMightyMollusk WWE Raw is on tonight. By the third hour, it'll probably feel the same, minus the actual physical trauma.

I think I'd rather punch myself in the nuts.

it's a vile interruption, chess the scripture way

@  Pennpenn : (26 September 2016 - 03:49 AM)

I've had versions where the issue doesn't come up (or at least doesn't come up in the part I notice the most), but the version that got remastered for Bluray and DVD releases have it.

@  Nevermore : (26 September 2016 - 02:05 AM)

I initially misheard "flying tools of torment" as "we're flyin' into some torment".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2016 - 01:08 AM)

If it's a problem with all released versions, maybe the original audio source was itself damaged?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 09:30 PM)

I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

G.I. Joe Renegades: Season One, Vol. 1

Now I like the show don't get me wrong but the "purchasing fanbase" for THAT is infinitely smaller then the one for FiM. Which, let's not forget, just got a jivety "sampler" DVD with random episodes instead of something like this.

What the hell?

The recent TF:Prime Season 1 on Blu-Ray kind of made me scratch my head, as well. Shout! Factory must be aware by now via customer feedback and activity on their forums that FiM could easily sell similar Blu-Ray season sets.

I don't really fault the for the Transformers since it's kinda huge right now with the movies and such.

I know Prime will sell more then FiM but Renegades (even for how good it legitimately was) will not do better then an FiM set would.

Oh, I'm sure Prime will sell better than Renegades, and probably better than FiM would too, ultimately. I just figured Blu-Ray isn't something they'd see fit to bother with for any children's programming at all, since I suppose it's more expensive to produce than a DVD. But after seeing that, I have to conclude that they're perfectly capable of producing a Blu-Ray season set if they want to; the mystery is why they're ignoring such strong calls from their own community to produce a Season 1 Blu-Ray (and DVD) set of FiM. It may not sell as much as Prime, but it'll definitely sell. Hell, I'd buy two (Blu-Ray, anyway; if it were only DVD I'd buy 1).

Hasbro still seems to be ignoring the success and potential of the show in general, putting about as little effort into things as they did with the franchise prior to FiM. I can understand not expecting any more out of it than the previous series in the beginning, but it's kind of ridiculous at this point.

That's nostalgia at work. Girl's TV shows almost never seem to get very good home video releases until quite a while after they air. If I were a girl, I'd be insulted at how decidedly not seriously these companies take girls (and presumably their parents) as potential customers. I suppose they assume it's mostly little boys that parents want to shut up for half-an-hour by sitting them in front of a TV, and that the parents of little girls won't spend too much time shopping in the DVD/BD section for their kid.

It took the Powerpuff Girls ages to get a complete series set too, but that finally came after a number of random episode collection DVDs. FiM will probably be released properly eventually, and I'd like to think it'll be sooner rather than later, but who can say for sure.

That a show isn't worth a proper release just because it's "for girls", I mean.

There's a huge problem of neglect in general for "girl things", from shows to video games to toys. The quality tends to be crap, and the few things that aren't crap still usually get written off as being so with no basis.

To the above:
FiM wasn't released in TWO-THOUSAND FOUR! By Rhino, who isn't Shout!. Yeah, I can see how that dosen't make sense.

To all the other doomsayers:
Shout! knows Transformers and G.I.Joe have established sales and have prior sales data.

Shout! dosen't prior sales data for MLP (which is surprising given all their retro releases) so the "Friendship Express" DVD is their test for the MLP waters. Want season box sets? Tell them by buying the DVD. Its only $10 and you can always upgrade.

Otherwise-
Chill the hug out! Shout!s got this.

Then they insinuate FiM doesn't have "enough of a fandom" to support season sets. Because hugging C.O.P.S. does. icon-primal.gif

For anyone who has watched Renegades, would you say it's similar to the original ARAH comics (or at least closer than the 80's cartoon)? Does it draw stories/ideas from them, or have a similar tone?

"DVD Release Date: February 28, 2006". Only TWO years later than your first example. And SIX years before FiM. So dude:

1) Calm down.

2) Breathe.

As much as i WANT DVDs, its not like FiM is a show that isn't readily available to watch by other means, so this "No DVD RAGE!!" thing comes off more as a "support of the show" thing. Support that CAN be shown, especially to Shout!, by way of the (Admitilly small) DVD already available.

Now, where did Shout! "insinuate" no market for FiM?

I have only seen the first couple of episodes (8-10 maybe?), but it's the A-team as a cartoon. A group of four soldiers are accused of a crime they did not commit, and now they are on the run from the military police while trying to absolve themselves from their crimes and expose the Cobra-corporation (the real criminals).

They even have a cool van and a big burly black dude.

The tone is less goofy than the 80's cartoon, it's a bit more serious.
