And that's why you can only buy them in a bundle

@  TheMightyMol... : (31 October 2020 - 03:17 AM)

I recommend Wishmaster 1 and 2. But not 3 or 4. Never 3 or 4.

@  Telly : (31 October 2020 - 12:33 AM)

i might watch spaced invaders. not scary in any way, but it takes place during halloween

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 October 2020 - 02:21 PM)

I think I'll watch The Haunting (1963), Carnival of Souls (1962) and The Innocents (1961) for Halloween.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 01:52 PM)

50/60's Twilight Zone, the 80's, millennium and recent ones also, all are in The Twilight Zone.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 October 2020 - 08:03 AM)

Twilight zone. Duh.

@  unluckiness : (28 October 2020 - 05:53 AM)

It's only fitting that SImpsons have halloween specials since it's been a shambling corpse of its former self since its teens.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 04:12 AM)

No I caught one of the latest one with parodies of Stranger Things which admittedly is horror series but Heaven Can Wait and The Shape of Water are Fantasy films. Plus implications of the characters being sociopaths or twisted has become a norm these days.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

Which probably adds to the "reasons they should just stop making more of The Simpsons" pile.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

You make it sound like The Simpsons becoming less repetitive is a bad thing.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 02:48 AM)

Remember when Simpsons Halloween specials parodied horror movies and would have the characters make off out of character remarks like "we chucked donuts at a old man for kicks."? they don't and can't do that any more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 October 2020 - 08:00 PM)

Tired of the same old Halloween stuff? Check out Tubi. The depths of the schlock available is astounding.

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.

@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...

I'd say the more important question is how X and Magneto fail to age at all over the twenty-year span of the "second trilogy".

 

Patrick Stewart hasn't aged in twenty years, so that one's pretty easy.

 

 

Seriously.

 

They had to put old age makeup on a Seventy Six Year Old just to sell the idea that Xavier is older in Logan.

Fox has so effectively butchered the X-Men continuity that I have no idea what the hell they are doing anymore.

 

The cinematic X-verse is very true to the overall comic continuity in that respect.

Dunno why everyone's so confused, there are only two timelines:

Timeline A
First Class-->Origins: Wolverine-->-->-->X-Men-->X2-->X3-->The Wolverine-->-->DoFP(bad future)

Timeline B (created by Wolverine altering history)
First Class-->DoFP-->Apocalypse-->(untitled future X-film)-->Deadpool-->DoFP(good future)-->-->-->Logan

DoFP erased Origins: Wolverine, since Logan didn't go to Vietnam with Creed (where they would eventually come to Stryker's attention), but instead made a beeline for Xavier's mansion.

The only really confusing parts are peoples' ages/actors, and I'm willing to write those off as artistic license and butterfly effects.

How is the teaser we saw in Logan a "good future"? Especially with it set a year after DoFP? Replace one catastrophe with another - the only difference is it seems Humanity isn't collateral damage like they were in the Sentinel Future.

 

Also, Deadpool's in an isolated continuity bubble, since he's aware of both McAvoy and Stewart.

Yeah, the confusion is solely over the fact that DOFP had everyone having a whale of a time at the X-Mansion in 2023, and then Logan apparently has mutants as a dying breed in 2024, which makes zero sense if it's in the same new timeline.

(Also, I don't think Deadpool's fourth-wall-breaking gags are really something one should use to try and determine continuity...)

What if Apocalypse showing up has set in motion cable traveling back and the universe on track for some AOE bad future.

Alternate theory: What if we aren't seeing old man Logan adapted, but the events leading to it. The "Bad guys" he kills throughout the movie are actually xmen trying to rescue the prof and x21 from a mind controlled wolverine. The end has a he audience all for wolverine going berserk on the baddies until it shamalan twists to him surround by the blood soaked body's of the xmen.

Considering this is reportedly Jackman's last appearance as Wolverine, I doubt that.

Yeah, I doubt they'll make Jackman's last outing so dang depressing.

 

As for Deadpool and McAvoy and Stewart in the same film - the thing there was it was Colossus taking him back to the mansion. The fact Wade asks the question (Beyond being a great gag), means there's a chance the Professor is McAvoy...who hasn't met Colossus yet.

 

Dang nabbit FOX. I am not supposed to think this hard about movie timelines.

for the first time, I am genuinely excited for an X Men movie.  That looks incredibly good.  As a hero movie, as a dramatic movie.  It looks good.
