I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Three more crashes since I pulled the ram. Verifying the OS now... tonight might be a reinstalling kinda night.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:46 AM)

And thankfully it wasn't totally dead, so it was working on occassion. If the problem is actually solved, I just need to wait and see if the program/system crashes are over.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:45 AM)

Got it. I wound up running the memtest four more times, because of course it's always the last dimm. But I got the culprit. I lost 8 gig, but I'm still at three times the "recommended" amount.

@  Hg Dragon : (07 September 2019 - 11:09 AM)

DL and run MemTest86. It'll help weed out issues. Run 1 stick at a time. Then run a stick that passed in each slot. Will help you find out if it's the RAM or the slot/motherboard

@  Patch : (07 September 2019 - 10:45 AM)

How many RAM sticks do you have total?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 09:57 AM)

Great, two weeks of random BSODs, and I manage to finally work out some ram has gone bad. Just need to work out which one(s) and then I can go from there.

I admit the designs for the new Saiyan and Freeza forms don't do much for me. They literally look like the palette swap crap you'd see from a fan character. Super Saiyan God I was willing to give a break because it was that or the awful Super Saiyan Four, but 'It's Freeza but he gold now!'....seriously?

A Super Saiyan doesn't go completely gold, the hair stands on end and goes gold plus the eyes go turquoise.

 

Frieza's new form...you could get that if you just spray painted any toy of Freeza since the 90s. It would have been nice to have had something that suggested the body had ascended. This isn't G Gundam where 'gold hue, super mode' works because we're talking about robots.

Save for Vegeta, at least the first Super Saiyan forms had altered hairstyles.  They weren't just a lazy palette swap.

Also I still prefer Super Sayian 4, becuase at least that is an actual form change and not just 'Oh, I'm going to dye my hair RED today to fight the villian!"

I'm mixed because on the one hand I think saying a true Super Saiyan needs to have the tail actually makes sense.

 

On the other hand, I think the SS4 design looks silly and GT never did anything that really sold it as what it was meant to be. I mean going into SS 2 simply powering up shook the entire planet. Super Saiyan 4 is one of the many times GT TELLS us this is beyond anything we've seen before but nothing about it really sells that as the case.

There's basically no reason Goku doesn't break the planet rolling over in his sleep at this point. Trying to make sense out of power levels in this franchise is a fool's errand.

That is the fault of GT, which is filled with faults, and not the actual form itself. There is, imo, nothing wrong with the design and as you say it makes sense. Its just like everything else in GT there was a lot of missteps. GT has some good and interesting ideas, like Trunks being the bored president of CC and looks for adventure. Plenty of fun that could be had there. Pan is a rather fun character, but as mentioned by others limited by the fact they decided she couldn't go Super Sayian. Not having Goten join as they could have really helped sell the threat of Bebi if a fused SS3 Gotenks couldn't deal with them. I think that's generally why the Omega Shenlong arc is the most memorable part of the series, becuase it felt like they were trying to really sell the threat of everything.

I dislike Pan because she's basically a brat. I don't expect her to stay as the little girl who loves her grandpa but in GT she's just the worst kind of teenage brat and when all that attitude isn't even backed up by being able to go at least Super Saiyan...

 

Likewise, I'm not the biggest fan of where they took Goten. I can kind of see why he might have turned out like that but the one note angle of him being a teenage playboy does nothing for me. Especially given how bland his character design was.

Goten probably would have been less one-note if he'd actually been a main character in the series. I like Vegeta's idea "Our kids have gotten soft, so lets throw them into space on a dangerous adventure." It's totally in character for him and is fitting to the world and themes. It would/should have allowed Goten to grow out of the teenage playboy phase with him and Trunks basically having to both grow up more to protect Goku with his significantly decreased power level and Pan with her stupidly limited one when thing started to get serious on the machine planet. And Plus, I feel it would have added more weight to the reveal of SS4 when Goku finally recovers his power level after they get beaten merciliessly; as Gotenks was one of their strongest fighters and his absurd 'make shit up' fighting style meant he was unpredicable and dangerously so. So Gotenks getting owned would have really given a good reason to need an even stronger form to win. ...yes it would kinda mirror the Buu arc even more.. but it would have at least upped the drama as that arc lasted WAY too long and got really boring when it felt like they weren't using their full potential to tell the story.

I wouldn't say that I liked feckless teen Gotenks, but I did like the idea that he'd be the most likely of the group to normalize, having lived most of his life in an era of peace.

I prefer the color changes because... honestly, the physical transformations and spontaneous hair growth fits less with the fact that these are martial artists getting their strength through training and their own spiritual energy. The glowing hair and auras are about the limit of what I would accept from thhat; Frieza getting a color change instead of another transformation likewise shows that he's finally relying on self improvement and not on the fact that he was born a prodigy and his alien race's mysterious awesome powers, and that's finally training to improve himself for once in his life instead of riding on ego and meeting his adversaries on semi equal terms.

I wasn't much of a fan of the archetype when I was younger, but Pan's personality is one of my favorite things in my current watch of GT.

And it's not her fault she didn't go Super Saiyan.

 

You know, I think it's kind of weird we haven't seen any forms with extra arms yet.

I wouldn't be surprised if they go there at some point.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse called them both Frieza Race and Frost Demons, if the Dragon Ball Wiki is to be believed.

 

Personally, I prefer the latter to the former.
