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)

Usually I'm willing to give animated films a go, but I have to agree this looked pretty terrible and I had no desire to see it

@  Foffy the Sheep : (26 March 2017 - 12:49 AM)

Yup.

@  OrionPax44 : (26 March 2017 - 12:48 AM)

@  Telly : (26 March 2017 - 12:08 AM)

*throws a krispy kreme* bite that! :p

@  Foffy the Sheep : (25 March 2017 - 11:59 PM)

Anyone who was going to try use MED's weaknessses against her would have to go through me first. And I'm warning you, I bite.

@  Telly : (25 March 2017 - 11:17 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (25 March 2017 - 04:44 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.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 March 2017 - 02:33 PM)

OFF WITH HIS HEAD! Whoa... okay, that was a total over reaction. What I meant to say was... OFF WITH HIS HEAD!!!

@  D Immortalis : (25 March 2017 - 12:52 PM)

honestly i'm not much of fan of Krispy Kreme.

@  Hg Dragon : (25 March 2017 - 12:11 PM)

Who DOESN'T want Krispy Kreme?!?!

@  Noideaforaname : (25 March 2017 - 11:12 AM)

Diabetes? Pftt. I'm a survivor!

@  wonko the sane? : (25 March 2017 - 11:04 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 March 2017 - 09:06 AM)

Nah, I can do without diabetes.

@  Bass X0 : (25 March 2017 - 08:37 AM)

So... who wants Krispy Kreme donuts?

@  Paladin : (25 March 2017 - 06:50 AM)

i think you can sync profiles from both to this site.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (25 March 2017 - 05:04 AM)

So I'm looking around at my settings at the moment, and I'm noticing "Manage Facebook" and "Manage Twitter," but I have to log in with those to see anything. What do those offer?

@  Robowang : (24 March 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Thanks.

@  Jalaguy : (24 March 2017 - 03:38 PM)

A gun was definitely jumped, we'll make sure it doesn't happen again. Big apology to everyone who wanted to stay spoiler-free.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 March 2017 - 03:08 PM)

Oh hey the news post in question turned up on my Tumblr dash, too. Thanks for that. Thanks a lot.

Owing to a slight miscalculation in timing (or perhaps just inattention), I have 8 Autobots who all need research and probably 3 more that will reach that threshold before my 3* character finishes his 3 day upgrade.  On the plus side, the only energon I have is what we've earned in rewards this weekend.  

 

On a different note, I feel like I'm just being taunted - I have a decent number of 3* characters, but can't get OP to make Maximus, can't get either of the two 3*Torchbearers I'm missing (I'm sure she'll be the next combiner), and haven't gotten a dupe Aerialbot in weeks to amp up Superion.  So weird

Well, after this weekend, I got a 2 Star Gnaw, which is cool, but I got dupes of him 5 times, and never got anything better. It is a bit vexing to put in so much effort, especially when I see people putting in replays into chat that aren't event battles.

Yeah, same here on Gnaw. They've got to do something about duplicates. I think I'll drop this game pretty soon unless they do.

My two 3* crystals were both dupes this event, but I did end up with a 4* Gnaw with my first crystal of the event and a 3* Gnaw with my last crystal.  Guess that's not too shabby.

This event was very good to me. Through a combination of enough 3 star shards for a crystal, free crystals and Gnaw crystals. I have a 2 star Gnaw, 3 star Rust Dust and a 3 star Sydive!

So one step closer to Superion.

All the XP has been really useful.

At this point, if/Victorion shows up, all i need is a 3 star Pyra Magna.

So yeah, my combiners are:
Superion: 2 bots
Optimus Maximus: 1 bot
Possibly Victorion: 4 bots.

I am trying to get my base defenses leveled up. I have been a little lax in upgrading them along the way. I am going to try to upgrade them all to the maximum before upgrading my base again.

So, this weekend we will have an alliance event and the goal is a 60K Perceptor. Also, it is a Global alliance event with the higher tiers getting better versions of Perceptor, or premium crystals depending on where you end up.

 

Daily minimum will be 800 this weekend, and please let me know in advance if anything will prevent you from competing this weekend.

I have found it is very important to keep your defenses at or near your current level.  As you level up your HQ, you expose yourself to higher level players.  If your defenses are below level, they'll walk right over you.  I'm in the process of leveling up my laser turrets now.  Once those are finished, I need to level up my 3 outposts then I can upgrade HQ to level 13 :)

I hate, hate, HATE these competitive events. The chances of getting our Alliance into the top 400 (let alone top 80) is nearly nil.

*sigh* I gave up on my own Alliance, and found one that's got better participation, but it apparently comes at the cost of having them start new Alliance Wars EVERY DAY!

Folks, don't do Alliance Wars during weekend events! The rewards for wars are pathetic, and it means I have to waste troops on the War that I could be getting double XP and event points toward better prizes on for the event!

Yep, no other base building (kind of sad I wish that was the case), you just basically get Decepticon teams.  Since I strictly free play, it will help me grind more.

 

Got Three star team, two star team, and the filler team...now including Decepticons.
