Not sure if it's news or not, but I'm at Ross right now and they have Masterpiece Movie Ironhide for $24.99

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 October 2020 - 12:45 AM)

Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s Best Buy exclusive deluxe version is available for $10 as one of today’s daily deals

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 October 2020 - 08:50 PM)

We can play the "Is it a real headline or an Onion headline" game.

It's weird to see how much of Larry Hama's "satire" from the old GI Joe comic has no longer become satire in the past few years.

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 October 2020 - 11:29 AM)

Funny how 2020 gave me new appreciation for Dawn of the Dead 1978.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 07:43 PM)

@Fenix Twilight Sure. Just not a good one.

@  Fenix Twilight : (25 October 2020 - 04:02 PM)

@Sukoshiko Well his clothes left an impression on you didn't they?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

I just read "Tesla Cybertruck" like AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", now it won't get out of my head, so I inflict it on all of you as well.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

I think the few up here were lost to bad placement, poor weather, and the usual language trap.

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 12:13 PM)

But yeah, reading it: I came off as a bit of an ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:52 AM)

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

@  Paladin : (20 October 2020 - 05:15 PM)

only takes three pounds to be a cereal killer.

@  Kalidor : (20 October 2020 - 04:54 PM)

5 pounds is a lot of cereal! /deadpan

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 October 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

So Disney are dragging their heels on airing the crossover with Phineas and Ferb with it now apparently set for Jan 2019!

 

Worse, in my opinion, is that the special (which has aired outside the US) basically breaks any idea of the show having some cute nods to PaF and instead makes Milo Murphy a full on continuation. Doof is even a recurring character now.

 

What happened? Did Disney not get the numbers they were expecting and so forced them to just retool it into a Phineas and Ferb continuation?

Marsh and Povenmire have said repeatedly from early on that they planed the Phineas and Ferb connection from the beginning and designed the whole first season to build to it. So I don't think there's any chance it's being forced on them.

-ZaWilliam, that said the way Disney is treating this show is the worst of modern scheduling garbage and I can't imagine how they expect anything even a great super fun show to build an audience when they force over a year between airings with new episodes just sitting in the can. Very dumb and seemingly self destructive.

Good god. I only ever managed to catch the first few episodes and had no idea there was any serious P&F stuff coming up.

I would have thought this show was cancelled like 3 years ago.

 

Seems like they haven't aired any in that long.

The last new episode to air was the Christmas episode this time last year and that was a while after the season itself wrapped up.

-ZacWilliam, how the heck they expect a show to thrive or even be remembered with a year plus of non-existence between seasons...

While it's reruns seemed to get more play, I'm pretty sure Phineas and Ferb had similar new episode gaps.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Yeah, I basically came here to say this. I watched the first half of season 1 before just kind of forgetting it existed, then I caught some of season 2 on TV yesterday.This show has really good original bits, but it's feeling overcrowded in season 2. It's not just Doof as a side character who somehow has to fulfill a time prophecy now (like, what?) though.

 

The aliens somehow feel like a ripoff of The LEGO Movie 2, which isn't possible because development was so close for both projects, and they're not fun to have around. There's less focus on Zack and Melissa, who are pretty fun normally. The new Elon Musk type villain guy is pretty cool too, but he was only in one episode I saw. It feels muddled when a show with a set mythology sees everything pushed aside for another older show.

 

Marsh and Povenmire have said repeatedly from early on that they planed the Phineas and Ferb connection from the beginning and designed the whole first season to build to it. So I don't think there's any chance it's being forced on them.

 

Maybe Disney should have told them to do the opposite then. Phineas and Ferb was good, but it had it's time. Most of the kids who were fans at the time aged out of the demo anyways, and rehashing a show that's ended isn't really good for fun and fresh ideas.

 

I've noticed that a lot of the songs from season two aren't that great, but they keep playing instrumentals of some of the best Phineas and Ferb ones (like Disco Miniature Golfing Queen) which is an annoying reminder of how good the creative team are.

Some info I've heard recently suggests I was right. We're apparently we're getting a new Phineas and Ferb movie, which begins where Milo Murphy ends with this season. Apparently Disney wanted PaF to continue in some fashion but Dan and Swampy wanted to do a new show. Disney are now seemingly getting their way.

I hope unlike the High School Musical series, which basically confirmed that two current Disney Channel shows were ending via it's casting, this doesn't spell bad news for Milo Murphy.

 

Maybe it might be good for the series; if Phineas and Ferb are over in stream-land, Milo and his world get room to grow.

Trying to avoid spoilers, so I haven't read the last few posts (glanced to see if they touch on my question), but has anyone heard of this is ever coming back to Canada? Because I can't find ANYTHING on that, and I've already spoiled a couple of things in trying to find out.

Thank god for Disney+, because trying to make it through all of Milo prior to that was a crazy nightmare. 
 
Meanwhile since this seems to be the de facto P&F thread too, the new movie is pretty fun. I do wish that they'd found room for Milo and co., we will presumably not get another season and I think those characters deserved to be recognised again if we're going to the trouble to have Danville on screens again. Not that Milo's show isn't acknowledged at all, it has contributed a little to the movie, but it could have been more. 
 
I was shocked to learn that Ferb had been recast between the end of P&F and the Milo appearance, and I couldn't imagine it going well, but David Errigo Jr is great. I've developed a deeper appreciation for Ferb and his line in the Adulting song is one of my favourite Ferb lines ever. Like, there's not much substance to it on the page, but the delivery and Doof's reaction and its role in the song just make it really entertaining. 
 
An interview with Jeff and Swampy about the movie: https://www.forbes.c...w/#27f0d842575e
 
 

Disney knew they were going to do a streaming service. They knew that they wanted to have stuff on the streaming service that they call co-viewing, meaning that adults and kids and grandparents could all watch it together.
 
One thing that they had that was really a heavy co-viewing show was Phineas and Ferb, which is part of why it was such a big hit because like around 40% of the audience was adults. So they said, "Hey, do you guys want to break out the old characters again?"
 
Swampy and I were sort of exhausted at the end of 10 years of doing (the show). But five years later we realized, "I really miss those guys! Let's break into this toy box again."

 
According to some other interview I can't find now, it seems like they had really senior people come to them and say "Phineas and Ferb is the thing we have that performs really well and that people in all age demos want to watch together, would you like to make more?" and it's incredibly nice to see Disney executives appreciating that (although obviously their motivation comes from a certain place, sure). 
 
It's also incredibly sad that presumably Milo has not found enough of an audience on D+ to fuel similar interest. I went into Milo happy to be with Dan and Swampy again but unconvinced that they could come anywhere near the magic of Phineas and Ferb. I should have had more faith because Milo's just as good, it's not a P&F clone but it does some amazing stuff.
