Another great 90's animated film is, of course, The Iron Giant.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 03:25 PM)

Another thing I liked about The Prince of Egypt was that it explained (without even having to say it outright) why Moses was chosen to deliver the Israelites from Egypt. Someone who had been raised among the slaves would have had too much bitterness and would want to go in throwing the wrath of God on all the Egyptians (or at least the royal family) until they all burned alive. But Moses had been raised as a member of the royal family, so he still thought of them as family. He wanted to reach a peaceful solution if at all possible.

"I know! I'll turn him into a flea. A harmless little flea, and then I'll put that flea in a box, and then put that box inside of another box, and when it arrives - AHAHAHA! I'LL SMASH IT WITH A HAMMAH! It's brilliant, brilliant, BRILLIANT, I tell you! Genius, I say!"

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 03:03 PM)

Hell, The Emperor's New Groove is easily the funniest animated film ever. Disney managed to do what Dreamworks tried to do, and they did it right.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 03:02 PM)

None of their "funny" movies are anywhere near as funny as Aladdin or The Emperor's New Groove.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 03:02 PM)

Its a pity Dreamworks devolved into a company that churned out "funny" films filled with pop culture references.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 03:00 PM)

(also at the end of that scene, the camera pans up from the Egyptian skyline to the night sky and the most prominent constellation is Orion. Which the Egyptians associated with Osiris)

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 02:59 PM)

Yeah I give them full credit for treating the Last Plague with all the solemness it deserves.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:59 PM)

It freed the Israelites, but Moses sure hated seeing what it did to his brother and all the normal non-slave owning people who didn't do anything wrong to the Israelites.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:58 PM)

And it actually portrays God murdering children as a tragic thing, something most other adaptations disturbingly don't do.

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 02:57 PM)

So that what He told Moses becomes, "I'll lay the smackdown on Egypt, but I should warn you it's only gonna make Rameses dig in his heels more until I have no choice but to break him fully."

@  RichardT1977 : (26 March 2017 - 02:56 PM)

It also describes the "hardening of the Pharoah's heart" as his natural reaction to the plagues rather than an intentional mental override by God.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:54 PM)

Hell, it actually portrays the Plagues as something that's bad and treats most of the Egyptian people as not deserving that shit. "All the innocent who suffer from your stubbornness and pride" and all that.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:53 PM)

I'm a Christian, but Prince of Egypt is one of the few religious movies I'll willingly watch, because it's actually good instead of being self-rightous preachy nonsense, batshit crazy propaganda or schmaltzy trash. It also has a great soundtrack with music that I actually put up there with some of Disney's best stuff.

@  Evac : (26 March 2017 - 02:45 PM)

Dreamworks's best movies will always be the Dragons movies and The Prince of Egypt.

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 March 2017 - 02:40 PM)

My friends and I sold them in college for fundraising. We often had boxes of them sitting around. I can still smell them. I won't be touching them again unless I'm forced to.

@  OrionPax44 : (25 March 2017 - 02:37 PM)

I love love love the hot Krispy Kreme donuts. They opened one in my area and for the first few weeks there was a line out the door of people waiting for hot donuts.

I find myself liking the image a bit more with the saturation dialled back up to a sensible level:

They're not quite as monochromatic a bunch as the original makes it look, though I don't doubt the film itself will probably get graded in a similar way...

Yeah but it all started with Arkham Asylum's "pigtails and a kinky nurse's outfit".

 

Yeah, gotta agree with Detour here. Arkham Asylum was Harley's switch from the classic Black and Red to...well..."Street Walker".

 

That said, she certainly manages to stand out from everyone else, so there is that.

I think they look good.

 

My familiarity with most of these characters being strictly limited to what's appeared in the DC Animated Universe and a couple one off animations.

 

I am one of those people that haven't liked Harley's redesign since Arkham Asylum.  I do think Margot looks good as her here though.

Meh, I'm old fashioned like that.

 

Regardless, I picked out Harley and Croc right away, and thanks to the saturation boost I can also spot Captain Boomerang, But if I didn't know Will Smith was playing Deadshot, I'd not spot him right away.

 

The rest...*shrugs* Deadshot 1, Boomerang, Kamelot Groupie, Japanese Lady with a Katana, Deadshot 2, Harley, Deadshot 3, Croc, Mister Skin Condition.

In fairness, his Will Smith cosplay in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was the best on-screen version of the character to date.

So, is the girl behind Katana supposed to be Copperhead? She kinda looks like the one that showed up there. I recognized most everyone immediately. Captain Boomerang immediately, Killer Croc looks exactly as I expected which is good. Other then taht girl, the only ones I can't place are the guy to the right of Boomerang, who I guess is Bronze Tiger for lack of anyone else, and I guess the tattoo'd guy to the left of Croc would be 'Slipknot'

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

If I was guessing - and I AM guessing, based on who we know is in this - I'd figure left to right it's Slipknot (because he's got that rope on him), Captain Boomerang, Enchantress (because she's the only other girl), Katana (in front), Rick Flagg, Harley, Deadshot, Killer Croc and El Diablo (because he's the only one left).

This is correct, based on a caption I've seen.

Katanna looks pretty much just like she'll look in Arrow this week.

Why does Enchantress look like she escaped from a Japanese horror movie?


Well, she's got a moon on her head, because she's June Moon.
