In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 08:27 PM)

Or dislike them. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Wish we could like the shout posts...

@  Patch : (16 February 2019 - 04:26 PM)

Uh oh. Here comes a flock of Wah-Wahs.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 10:54 AM)

Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

@  Dekafox : (16 February 2019 - 12:48 AM)

A red panda?

@  Rodimus Supreme : (15 February 2019 - 11:06 PM)

*WAH

@  Rodimus Supreme : (15 February 2019 - 11:05 PM)

THE HECK IS A WHAH WAH?!?!?!

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2019 - 08:54 PM)

Yay! My nephew's Wah Wah showed up today!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 February 2019 - 08:12 PM)

BotBots are GLORIOUS

@  Pennpenn : (14 February 2019 - 07:07 PM)

A day best ignored if you're not the target demographic. Can be difficult sometimes though.

@  Paladin : (14 February 2019 - 11:55 AM)

Valentine's Day. bummer.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Or you could come to canada, where bureaucracy is a publically funded art form! So garbage and used condoms trying to make a statement about something or other, not entirely sure what.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

We've turned it into an art form.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

You think you know bureaucracy, but you've never been to Germany.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 February 2019 - 11:48 PM)

I think a better counterpart would be "society".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 February 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Sounds like the cobra effect.

@  Echowarrior : (13 February 2019 - 05:58 PM)

I think a better counterpart for it would be bureaucracy.

@  MEDdMI : (13 February 2019 - 08:33 AM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 05:00 AM)

Nope, none for REmake or Zero either.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 04:13 AM)

Do we have a release date?

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 03:51 AM)

Looking forward to RE4 on Switch, it will be my annual playthrough.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Don't call Floridans that. It's degrading to marine mammals.

@  Ashley : (12 February 2019 - 12:41 AM)

Oh, the huge manatee

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 February 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Anyone here ever been to the Manatee Viewing Center right outside Apollo Beach, Florida?

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:35 PM)

The manatees were extra eager that day.

@  ▲ndrusi : (11 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Maybe they accidentally got some editorial oversight for a while or something.

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

And it shifted gears the season after, it's like there was a different head writer or editor or something one year

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was some random season after the cancellation that I thought was amazing, but I don't watch the show closely enough to tell you which one it was

Theorizing that one could time travel to chase down Brainstorm, Rodimus and a crew of Autobots stepped into the Magic Briefcase accelerator – and vanished. They unsurprisingly found themselves in the past, facing an Orion Pax that was not yet Optimus Prime, and driven by the narrative to keep history from going down the crapper. Their only guide on this journey is Megatron, an observer from their own time, who communicates through a giant cell phone that Orion actually spends the most time on. And so Rodimus & Co. find themselves leaping from place to place, striving to put right what Brainstorm put wrong and hoping each time that the next leap… will be the leap to shoot his face so they can go home.

 

I’m honestly not sure what this issue really accomplished, but that’s not really a bad thing. It feels like one of those issues that’s almost filler in the moment, but entire later arcs hinge on it. The beauty though is that there’s so much great character interaction that most people wouldn’t complain even the issue was nothing but filler. Rodimus as always has some great moments, but Megatron almost steals the issue from him. It’s great catching up with Roller again. Whirl continues to be scary, Tailgate continues to be utterly adorable, and Rewind… I still don’t trust that guy.

 

Favorite Line: “Lost? Oh, it’s far worse than that. Ha! No, no. No, I know exactly where I’m going. I don’t know if I could turn back now, even if I wanted to.” –Megatron
