You know that Patton Oswalt knew he'd made it as an entertainer when people stopped asking him whether he was Pat or Oswald and where was the other one.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 10:20 AM)

He does lots of voice work, but it was young Oswalt in my dream, so I guess it was the King of Queens edition.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2017 - 09:56 AM)

I only know about Patton Oswalt from Transformers.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:11 AM)

We won because Ellen kept going up the other teams and telling them to not worry about their hair looking silly in their helmets.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2017 - 09:10 AM)

I had a dream I was in a team kick scooter competition and the 3 people on my team were Ellen DeGeneres, Patton Oswalt, and my third grade bus driver.

If it works, I might be willing to take it off your hands. I've been meaning to get one for customs and such.

Ordered a watchmaker pin remover from Amazon.

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 12:33 PM)

No, bought the set at a convention.

@  Robowang : (20 October 2017 - 08:14 AM)

That's never good. Buy it from a place that will replace it?

@  Nevermore : (20 October 2017 - 04:57 AM)

Gaaaah, Hasbro. My Transformers Tribute Optimus Prime (from the two-pack with Orion Pack) has a misassembled part that has another part connected to it via a metal pin...

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:22 PM)

I just know they have the same ID number in the computer as deluxes, so the search feature on the website is useless.

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:21 PM)

No idea on price.

@  Shrug : (19 October 2017 - 05:14 PM)

Oh thanks. I just assumed it was a special item. Does that mean it'll be the $18ish the normal Deluxes are or can Walgreens price them separately?

@  Robowang : (19 October 2017 - 05:11 PM)

Before you go hunting at Walgreens, know that the Clone two-pack number is identical to the regular deluxe number. An in-stock listing for the clones likely just means they have deluxes in stock.

I had met him at BotCon 2014, he was a vendor there. He was part of the group I hung out with at the day at Universal. Really fun guy, it's sad he's gone.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  unluckiness : (18 October 2017 - 10:22 AM)

I'm not American. Should I do something about it or just ignore it.

@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 08:48 AM)

I doubt we'd have a chance with Hillary either. Didn't she get like 100k from Comcast? Both parties are pretty dang corrupt. If only Bernie...

@  wonko the sane? : (17 October 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Okay, so it is the allspark doing it, and not some piece of malware I need to run a system scan over, that's basically all I wanted to know.

@  Evac : (17 October 2017 - 04:34 PM)

If, say, Hillary or Bernie was president, we'd have a chance, but with the current administration... We're pretty much hugged.

I already got the iTunes version of this. I plan on watching it tonight. It was my most anticipated comic movie of the year. Killing Joke has been one story I've been dying for them to do. I was planning on getting the HD iTunes version plus whatever BluRay release they did...like...please oh please oh please have a Blu Ray with figurine and mini-comic pack-in.

Thanks, but no. I just finished watching it. I will not be buying it again and I seriously doubt I'll even watch it again.

The prologue was every bit as horrid as I feared. I was hoping that once it got to the part where the actual graphic novel started it would get better. But by that point the prologue just really colored everything that came afterword and it just...bleh! Yeah, bleh...even worse than meh.

As short as the story itself was anyway, and as much as they had to pad it out with 30 minutes of "dear sweet merciful heavens why," the parts that actually from the graphic novel just seemed rushed. The animation was...well...I suppose it was decent. But for something that so many people have been waiting so long for, "decent" just doesn't seem good enough. I know they can do better. I've seen them do better. But this just seemed...bleh!

Honestly: Kevin Conroy, Mark Hamill and Tara Strong. How does this get so hugged up?

And they just wouldn't let it go either. It wasn't just a "well that scenes over, let's just forget that ever happened." No! They kept on talking and talking about it to the point of "it didn't mean anything. Please let's just get things back the way they were before it ever happened." Like...seriously...not even joking. That conversation actually took place! And guess who's the one with the tail between the legs begging to be taken back!

Pathetic. They just...wouldn't...stop!

I hope they're happy. Right now I'm just hoping I can still read the comic without it bringing back the bad taste I get from having watched this crap!

I just can't understand how that kind of plot point was even considered. I mean just, why? It adds nothing. It has no purpose, other than to be an ugly, icky shock tactic. And as Caldwin said, they keep beating you over the head with it.

After the bad press they got over a COVER referencing the Killing Joke, and Jokers implied abuse of Babs. How could any sane person even rationlise throwing the 'relationship' on top of that.

When Rocksteady referenced the shooting scene from KJ in Arkham Knight, they toned it DOWN by having the Joker shoot Babs in the back and take a few pictures. Admittedly, they for some reason paired Babs with Tim, which is stupid too. Just not to this level.

Yet yhe makers of this thought random sex between Babs and Bruce was a 'fascinating angle' to take the story. What. The. Hell!

Well, in addition to Killing Joke, we do have the nifty Justice League Dark feature coming in a few months.  That looked nifty, even if they are still pushing that pseudo "shared universe" deal on a bunch of their animated features.  And at SDCC, it was announced that The Judas Contract was back on (presumably, a sequel to JL vs TT, given the teaser at the end of that), and we're getting a Bruce Timm original story in Batman and Harley Quinn.

Are people really bitching about Babs hugging Bruce and not the hookers they added in to make it extra clear that Joker raped her after shooting her because a subtle implication wasn't enough?

So I am on my 2nd time watching this.  Picked up the blu ray today.  I think in future times watching Ill treat it like I do Attack Of The Clones....Ill just skip the first part.  So Ill skip the first 30 minutes or so and just watch where the book starts.  Other than the Batgirl opening, I think its a pretty good adaptation.  I haven't read a lot of Batman books over the years other than some graphic novels, and really nothing really dealing with Batgirl.  I took that scene with her and Batman as more creepy.  She's what, 21 ish at this point?  He's in his 40's and a father figure to her. gross.  

 

Id still like to see Dark Victory and The Long Halloween turned into an animated films.  The rape stuff....I honestly hadn't even thought of it while watching it until I read this.  But Ive been doing homework while its been playing so I guess I wasn't paying that close of attention.  But, I don't mind it.  It shows how demented Joker is and the lengths he was willing to go to turn Gordon crazy and continue to infuriate Batman.  Would I prefer the directors to just do a page for page adaptation....sure.  Give us the material as it was written.  But I can deal with it.

If they're consenting adults, I can't really say the age differential makes it "wrong".

I actually liked the 30min prologue, it was a pretty decent Batgirl movie when all is said & done, I saw it as they made a mistake... a BIG BIG mistake, and then having to deal with the consequences of that mistake, ultimately realizing that the genie can never go back into the bottle. It made them very human, very relateable.

 

However it really had no place in the story of the Killing Joke, that I always saw was about a twisted co-dependant relationship between two enemies. After buliding up Babs for so long, she suddenly becomes an afterthought in the rest of the movie making for a strange tone.

 

So I saw it as getting a good Batgirl Short movie, along with a "as good as we're probably gonna get" Adaptation of TKJ.
