I swear, I'm in line to use a coupon, there is something wrong with said coupon, and suddenly I'm holding up a line of 3 or 4 people

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

Cap doesn't have a stake in it? Whut??


Well, close personal, emotional stake as much as the others? Bucky's ashing wasn't even as traumatic as Spider-Man's was with Tony.

Captain Marvel'# movie crossing 1 billion means a sequel right? Was there plans for it? She's so alien now (gone for nearly 25 years), she could be adapting to being a regular earthling again.

Only... Hulk has no sequel follow up.

Hulk never getting a sequel has to do with distribution rights. If he were to have another movie it would be up to Universal Studios to distribute it, and Disney doesn't want that.

And something tells me they might not be able to handle things like they did with 20th Century Fox.

Given how much money it made and how spectacular its success I think the marketing team did a fine job. (They weren't the idiots that made it out to be an attack on men either, that was the usual online morons.)

Within five years I bet we'll see Disney get whatever distribution rights Universal owns on Marvel properties in exchange for a FOX property that Disney has no plans to use.

 

It should go down similarly to how Disney traded the real-life Al Michael's contract to Universal for the rights to the a character that predated Mickey, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, whose rights were sold to Universal way back when Disney was in dire financial straights.

 

Sound familiar?

-ZacWilliam, seriously.

Already pointed out chunks of the marketing decided to promote the movie as being about 'slapping men down'. Which was a hugging stupid choice given Carol has no such agenda and happily works with anyone who shows her basic respect.

I really hope they didn't lose sales over that because people missed seeing her punch through attack cruisers.

They made over 1 billion. I'm not reading any articles (not like how there was a huge newsplash about Black Panther getting past the billion mark) but are there any indicators as to where a majority of the watchers came from? (China again?). Maybe insight as to where the audience came from?

Just saw the movie yesterday. It was good. Not great. Certainly not fantastic, but it had its moments.

 

I think I liked it more for how it built upon the MCU than for how it told us Carol's story, as Carol's story in general felt kinda... plain, I guess? The way the story is structured reminded me too much of Man of Steel, along with how the titular character felt the most distant/impersonal and least relatable of the movie's main characters, with the supporting cast members such as Fury, Goose, Monica, Talos, and especially Maria (best character in the movie other than Fury, IMHO) being way more likable.

 

Another issue was with both Carol's power scale being so high (and so Super Saiyan-esque) and yet the flashback nature of the film made it difficult for her to go up against a credible enough threat to really show her potential without breaking continuity, with the climax having her

Spoiler

 

That said, I loved the surprise twist with the Skrulls, the 90s pop culture references, and the aforementioned really likable supporting characters (plus Coulson, we got too little of him). I'd call this one a decent MCU outing, but I guess I was expecting something different from it.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Definitely.  Anything usually reaching $1 billion needs to have great numbers almost everywhere.  Even the Chinese mega hit "The Wandering Earth" only (I say only as if this wasn't a huge feat) reached $700 million with China making up 99% of its income.  Meaning that nothing is likely to reach a billion on China alone, and Captain Marvel didn't do all that much better than Alita Battle Angel in China.  So it's worldwide acceptance, with North America making up a substantial chunk (36% for Captain Marvel).

The only thing that could get in the way of that is that Iger and the Brian Roberts who is the CEO of Comcast/Universal,  HATE each other, so much that it is a personal stake right now regarding the two companies.

 

Maybe when Iger retires in a few years, but I don't see much happening on this front until then.

I'd be likely to guess that most of the viewing audience for this movie hasn't.

 

Whether that be a good thing or a bad thing depends on your view.

wheres the fun in watching someone that can handily defeat everyone and everything she comes up against? theres no excitement when the "end boss" comes cause there wont be any real danger to the character. its cool to SEE her punch through big ass spaceships, but if someone can do that then a mere person is childsplay

 

iron mans had his ass kicked

captain americas had his ass kicked

thors had his ass kicked

hulks even had his ass kicked!

 

all four of them have had to struggle to win fights (hulk less so than most). carol has, to this point, not. well, not after she went full sparkle or whatever. she had to actually fight earlier in the movie. plus its made her cocky in the endgame clip in the avengers thread. i only hope that theyre setting her up for a major humbling by thanos.

 

all-powerful characters are just boring
