Isn't that a kernel of truth.

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 08:43 PM)

huh. suddenly the Squawk is popping.

Not placing much stalk in this conversation.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:58 PM)

Considering that Amazon is the new Walmart...

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

All of my best wishes go out to the brave women and men who have the balls (and ovaries) to go on strike at an Amazon facility in the US.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Speaking of. Not only are we in Germany on strike today, but so is the fulfillment center in Shakopee, Minnesota!

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Overnight delivery is the right of all sentient beings.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

(and is it sexist of me to assume that a character named "Amazon Prime" would be feminine?)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:34 PM)

Whenever she was summoned, she would arrive the next day?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 July 2019 - 12:32 PM)

The Scioli and Barber TF vs Joe series mentioned an Amazon Prime.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 July 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Meanwhile I'm wondering why no one's come up with a fan character named "Amazon Prime". I mean, today IS her special day...

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 11:20 AM)

The Wallet-Eater.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2019 - 08:44 AM)

Woah. Unicron broke the site.

@  MEDdMI : (14 July 2019 - 10:08 PM)

Is that what kids are calling it these days?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 July 2019 - 07:33 PM)

Ssshh, you'll get us both "dealt with".

@  RichardT1977 : (14 July 2019 - 07:28 PM)

No, but I did *read* it from you...

IDW sent out a release today about the "Answer the Call" mini

 

I was not a huge fan of the film, but I liked the concept a lot, so like Creature SH said, it will be neat to see the characters as interpreted through another creative team's lenses.

So glad IDW is continuing to run with this. Ghostbusters comics without Burnham tend to make me nervous because he's just so good, but I can imagine Thompson doing a fantastic job.

Sounds like another one of Ackroyd's scrapped GB3 concepts.

Doesn't look like it has anything to do with the ATC team, though.

Looks like Reitman has said there is both an animated film AND a new live action one in the works, possibly involving ATC and the OG's.

http://bloody-disgus...ly-coming-2019/

“It was clear a lot of people weren’t happy the original Ghostbusters world wasn’t included in the new one,” said Reitman. “I love seeing [writer Erik Burnham’s take on] Kate McKinnon’s character’s interactions with Spengler [in the Ghostbusters 101 comic books]. It’s very rich, and has given me lots of ideas for a new film.”

The 35th anniversary of Ghostbusters is on the way in 2019, and Reitman noted that “the studio is going to try to tie one of the new films close to that date.”

Just read Ghostbusters 101 #4 and was really glad Ray called out Holtzmann on dispersing ghosts instead of catching them. After that was a big deal in the comics before, it stood out in the ATC movie when they were doing just that.

Basically, Sony would just be throwing good money after bad if they tried to do another live-action movie this soon; the total collapse of the reboot means that even people who were neutral on the matter going into it will be hard to win over now.

The comics are the best thing that they can do right now.

If they *must* do something beyond that, however, they should stick with a television show or something similar.

Reitman says he'd like to try for another Live Action movie 2019 the 35th annivasary, but not sure how well that'd work. However if you're gonna try for a crossover movie... that might need to happen sooner then later, since we're already short one Ghostbuster.

Yeah. Like, a movie with Murray and co is not happening, surely. If they do a TV series, what is it? RGB-style original guys but recast? ATC cartoon?

I mean, I'd love Walker, LaMarche and co teaming up with animated ATCers. But that's not likely either. And how do you replace Kate McKinnon? I mean Welker or LaMarche can probably do it, but still.

It's very close to Doctor Who in that a crossover is hampered by death, age or sheer refusal. Compare Doctor Who 50th only getting 2 Doctors back and everyone else being stock footage while comics were able to do a full team up and more recently a team up of the four revived show Doctors.

Heck, Harrison Ford was a bit past it when he returned as Indy and Han in recent years.

Hi there! I'm making a preemptive informative post.

 

Mr. Plinkett (you know, the prequel reviews guy) has just put up a review of Ghostbusters 2016! Now I am a fan of his comedic reviews, but I also know that everyone in this thread is likely sick to death of negative comments and videos about the film and doesn't want it to flare up again.

 

So I'd like to suggest that the usual suspects do NOT post the video here and we don't discuss it and instead avoid the same old back and forth!

 

...and yes I'm aware that I'm bringing it up in the first place, but I know one of you guys was going to chuck this hand grenade in so the least I can do is jump on it.

Whatever your thoughts on the film, the review is worth watching to see Jack in a ridiculous wig impersonating Paul Feig, though.

Yeah people's like, dislike, and indifference to this topic has been completely well established by now and pretty much all topics of conversation regarding the movie itself as it's own entity have been used up.

 

It's like we beat a dead horse till it's glue.   

 

On the other hand, any new thread would just have people toss in a snarky mention of the film and start the debate up all over again.   So closing it won't really solve that problem either.
