the debate sems to be over.

Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:55 PM)

Intent is not the same as result. And comics end up ignoring things quite often.

@  Telly : (24 August 2016 - 12:54 PM)

maybe they figured a lot of people that read gi joe also read transformers. so they throw a crossover/build up in their to get some excitement for the new comic coming

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:51 PM)

If G2 universe was to be unrelated to G I Joe, why did they do a prelude to it?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 12:33 PM)

Classics and RG1 not including Joe issues 138-145 in their backstory does not preclude them from including TF 1-80, or even the Joe and TF miniseries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 12:30 PM)

Marvel 616 is also a massive continuity snarl from dozens of writers altering, retconning, or ignoring each others' work for decades, so it's not really a great example for an argument on continuity.

Well to be fair, Dreamworks has seriously stepped up their game in the past few years. The two Kung Fu Panda's and How to Train Your Dragon were fantastic films - films actually able to run alongside Disney/Pixar fair and, while maybe not being quite as masterful, certainly were around the same level. And even their lesser works - Megamind, Monsters Vs Aliens, were at the very least entertaining and fun parodies. After that many wins in a row, it's hard to just dismiss Dreamworks as 'crap' anymore.

This right here is where my sense of wonderment failed...



Dreamworks has to get over their addiction to names...ESPECIALLY flavor of the month's like Chris Pine...because he's shown any level of acting that makes him the choice for a voice role? Anything distinctive about him? Anything that makes him better than a professional voice actor?

It makes sense in some cases....Jay Brushell in Dragon..1) he's got a pretty distinctive voice pattern and manner, and 2) that's a role he'd play in a live action version...same with Jack Black in panda.

Yeah, Dreamworks feels the need to make a big deal out of the names in their movies.


Pixar does not. In fact, most of the time they just use people from around the office....and John Ratzenberger.

Yes, because Tim Allen (back in the 90's), Tom Hanks, Ed Asner, Owen Wilson, and Larry the Cable Guy are "guys that happened to be in the office."

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Tom Hanks.

Pixar casts actors who'd you'd cast if the film was a live action version.

Ed Asner played an animated Ed Asner. You could easily see Cars remade live with Owen Wilson and Larry.

Tom & Tim aren't as personally connect to their rolls as in others, but Dave Foley and Julia Louis Dryfus? Monsters Inc works just as well if you point a camera at John Goodman and Billy Crystal.

What did America Ferrara, Jonah Hill or Kristin Wiig bring of themselves to Dragon?

Or generic voiced Reese Witherspoon, Seth Rogan, or Rain Wilson to Monsters vs Alien. Colbert played an exagerated version of his own character, and at least Hugh Laurie went nuts with the role to justify his casting.


(and yes, Resse Withspoon would actually play that part in a live action..as would Amy Adams, Rachel McAdams, and Jennifer Aniston. IE. Generic leading lady, so you might as well have cast Tara Strong, and save some money to be used for the script (and get a better voice performance))
