@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

GET TO THE COMBINERS BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF EACH OTHER!

 
Maybe next week or the week after we "might" have Devestator vs Victorion! I want to know, exactly how does one kill a combiner, shouldn't the death of the central bot trigger a release and let the other bots go?
Combiner Wars is the sequel to the Zone OVA nobody expected!

I'm really wondering what kind of presence Victorion can even hope to have with there being as little left to this as there is. 

 

It's so weird, it's like, they want to credit the Enigma with creating combiners, but then they've got Devastator just TURN UP like this. And you KNOW it's because they KNOW the audience already knows who Devastator is because HE WUZ IN THA MOVIE so why bother, but what even is special about a combiner then? It's just nonsense.

And Windblade is literally there to kill them for possibly attempting to make Combiners, so MoF saying, "Yeah, let's do that," justifies Windblade's fears... because Windblade was coming to kill them.  This is so stupid.

If I didn't know any better, I'd have guessed this was building up to a Starscream/Rodimus/Mistress Of Flame combiner. And this series is so senseless it still might.

Megatron is suddenly the comic relief what. So he retired and studied sarcasm.


Now I know we've all decded that on the whole this show is a bit of a parade of errors but I'm wondering, aside from RWBY is there any better 3D web original animation? I mean there's Red vs Blue which is actually machinma and even then most people watch it primarily for the humor, so what's the ReBoot of the internet?
Woooo!

THEY ARE GOING TO KILL US

- mistress of flame, 2016

"I will shoot at her," said Starscream and he fired the rocket missiles. Windblade plasmaed at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
"No! I must kill the combiners," she shouted!
The radio said "No, Windblade. You are the combiners."
And then, Windblade was a Combiner.

Actually, considering this series' premise of permanently-combined-into-a-single-being-Combiners-as-a-new-race, it would have been a much more interesting story if Windblade were trying to figure out how to de-combine everyone instead of just outright kill them all.

 

that would more episodes than they have and it wouldve been way too much work. hack and slash is both easier and stress relieving! 

 

They've wasted half their running time on basically two minutes worth of story, so they could fit it in.  Makes Windblade sympathetic, you could write it as Optimus having made the original decision to use the Enigma to explain why he's in exile now AND give him a better motive for rushing to stop the council, and keep Megatron exactly the same.

 

 

 

 

I also love how the Mistress of Flame thinks that the threat of a Combiner will deter Windblade and the others, even though Windblade alone just sliced Menasor into chunks not all that long ago.

I came up with a amusing idea inside of my head, earlier on, Mensor, said that the council was going to create an army of Combiners and I thought Rodimus "No, we're not going to create an army of Combiners, instead we'll create an army of Primes!" (picture fan out, see every variation of OP so far) all of them together, speak: "One shall stand, one shall fall!"

-God, how I hate noble Starscream. It's pure fanwank trash.


Hate on this version of SS all you want but I don't get how it's fanwank.
 
Fanwank would have been him repeating lines verbatim from TF:TM or the G1 'toon, since those are the fans that Hasbro is supposedly wanking with this production.

Making irredeemable villain (who was villainous on his own, no dark side spell of any sort to be broken) into a noble hero is fanwank.

...what do you think "fanwank" means? :???

Crap that makes perfect sense only to fanboys/fangirls.

So literally the exact opposite of this situation, where only someone familiar with Starscream's (assumed) history would see a problem in the first place.

(I am also pretty sure that isn't at all what "fanwank" means but I have learned my lesson about expecting people to go by the actual meanings of words.)

Then pray tell what the correct term is for fans who write and love awful fanfiction.

The commonly accepted term for bad fanfiction is "bad fanfiction."

I don't know if there's a commonly accepted description for people who write and/or read bad fanfiction, and if there is then it's probably something that was invented by men in their late thirties use to mock thirteen-year-old girls.
