@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

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.

*screams*

Whoever was running the projector found new and creative ways to botch the job.

Not only was the 3D not properly aligned, the film blanked out during the end credits (right at the end of the first credits sequence, no less). They got the video back a few moments later (after we all missed the middle two), but the credits themselves were moving at 3X speed and there was no audio.

Those of us who were able to find and corner a manager got rain checks, but since I'm watching this for the review I had to turn right around and use that check for a showing in the morning; the only open seats they had left for today would have had me kissing the screen because of how close the seats were.

So I'm basically going to be missing FCBD this year so that I can re-watch the movie in full in order to do my review.

Gah.

Fantastic film!

Only minor gripe was Quill referring to Rocket as "trash panda". The ending makes it clear that he's not up to date on modern (2014) Earth tech, so that term comes across a bit too meme-y for me to handwave like last movie's Ninja Turtles ref. Still funny tho.

Given that the MCU galaxy apparently has non-Earth foxes, puppies, monkeys, and raccoon-like things that Drax's people eat, you could probably no-prize it as just a space creature term that Rocket doesn't know. I wouldn't want to, but you could.

I don't even remember how many times in this movie I was on the verge of tears. That has never happened to me before, and that's a serious conpliment.

Freaking father and son and an energy construct had me nearly losing it.

Damn you, Gunn!

My biggest negative is that the soundtrack didn't seem to really hit as poignantly as the first movie. The music fit the scenes well enough, but just felt like it lacked a certain punch.

Loved it.  Just about as good as the first one, I think; although in slightly different ways.  I found Ego an extremely creepy villain... perhaps one of the MCU's most twisted villains to date.  The revised version of his history (with increasingly creepy visual aids) we were treated to as Gamora and Nebula found his cave of bones was extremely effective, and had me breaking out in goosebumps at the thought of all the millennia he's spent playing out the same sick scenario over and over again.

 

One thing, though.  Personally, I'd have liked to see Quill get another Walkman rather than a Zune.  Sony's new high-res Walkman line are actually very well-designed devices, but not well-advertised or particularly well-known; and I'm surprised they didn't try to get one of them worked in as the successor to Quill's TPS-L2.

I quite liked the fact it was a zune. Means it was what 2002ish time when it was out? so the music won't be ultra modern and have a good mix on it.

 

Plus bonus points for it not being an iPod

Saw this film, it's fantastic! Of course, any movie that begins with a giant laser battle against a naked mole rat-octopus while a baby tree man dances to Mr. Blue Sky is automatically going to be the best movie of the entire year.

Though Ego, man, if you hadn't gone full villain monologue you could've had it.

 

 

Sylvester Stallone seemed kinda superfluous here, and he doesn't really earn the implied spin off... but dammit this kind of movie is so my thing I'm more than happy to get a double dose.

Why I like the Walkman personally, and why I'd have liked to see Quill's accessory continue to be one of its successor namesakes, is that I'm of the same generation that the character is supposed to be; and back then the name Walkman just kind of oozed cool.  Zune, and even Microsoft, will mean nothing to Quill.

 

This new $3000 Walkman also kicks the Zune's ass.

It's my understanding that the prop master couldn't find a single working Walkman of that make and model; what we see in the film is basically a Walkman case on top of something that did work.

This may have ultimately been behind the decision to go ahead and have it replaced.

Possibly, when they're told it costs $3000, lol.

 

Seriously, though, that's one thing that didn't really get many laughs in my theatre.  Only people who were gadget nerds during a very specific year range would even know what a Zune is, so for 99% of the audience the extent of the joke is "Quill now has an MP3 player, haha"  That it was a Zune is mostly inconsequential, which is why I'd have liked to see the Walkman lineage continue.

 

I have the $300 NWZ-A17, and it blows my old iPod out of the water.  45+ hour battery life, immense storage, high-res format support.  Plus it gets me all nostalgic going back to a Walkman after all these years.
