Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

Just watched Both the Gandra Dee and Darkwing episodes. Gandra Dee was fun but kinda predictable, the Darkwing episode though. Damn they did great there, I really wasn't expecting it to go they way it did. Though I did expect the new guy to be Drake Mallard after his story to Launchpad, it felt reminiscent of what we seen of his childhood in the old show, a bullied kid that gets inspired by Darkwing (this time a show rather then his future self of course) to become a better person and a hero himself.

 

Now give us Gosalyn as part of Webby's band of friends.

 

Gosalyn is apparently coming, I expect we will see her modern character design at Comicon this year.

 

I loved the DW episode, it was fantastic.

I kind of felt like the Darkwing episode was supposed to be a sort of backdoor pilot to a new spin-off series.

 

What's more is how, in the episode where Della first met Launchpad, she objected to his "replacing" her as Scrooge's pilot, and then the vault episode showed her to be back in the pilot's seat of the Sunchaser. With Della back and Drake Mallard here to fill in Jim Starling's shoes, I could see Launchpad leaving this show to go over to a new Darkwing Duck show, allowing Della to stay as Scrooge's new pilot without redundancy. Then, the two shows could make periodic crossovers with each other by having cast members from each guest star with each other a la the Arrowverse shows on the CW.

 

Though, this is something that I actually DON'T want to see happen, since I like this show being one all-encompassing show. I don't want to see them make a bunch of shared-universe spin-off shows because I like how this one show so far already has everything in it. Would I like to see more of Drake Mallard's Darkwing? Absolutely, but as a part of this show rather than his own. Make him a recurring character if not a new main character. Make his villains a part of this show's stories, like what they did with Don Karnage back in Season 1. I want them to keep everything within this one grand all-encompassing series rather than multiple separate-but-related ones.

Unfortunately, Rescue Rangers is the one Disney Afternoon series that is completely off limits for this show to do anything with, since Disney's trying to make a live action movie out of it.

I am thinking we will see Darkwing stick around on Ducktales at least for now.  There is a lot they can do with him on the show, and well the way the episode ended, it really looked like seeds were being planted for a future plot line.

 

For the very fact alone Gizmoduck now will get a rival who is not an enemy.  There is only so much they can keep on doing with Beaks right now in that role before it will get tiresome, however, with the stuff that was in the last episode....

After my recent re-watching of the original series, I'd say he was a fun character.

 

He certainly had more personality than Huey, Dewey, Louie, and Webby, and most (but NOT all) of his episodes were among the more interesting ones of the series.

 

My main issue with him was how the series never resolved his story, in that he's brought to the present day and stays there, but never gets sent back home (that is, after the first time he was sent back home in his five-part debut, from which he returned to the present), instead disappearing from the series altogether never to be acknowledged again.

There are hardly that many post-Bubba episodes out there in the first place. I consider it safe to assume that he never goes back, and lives out the rest of his days in present-day Duckburg.

Really enjoyed the Darkwing episode. Other shows have done this plot but everything was perfectly balanced here, down to how the comedic violence the Darkwings suffer feels timed to the choreography of the old (original!) show, not this one.

I think it also shows why holding off Darkwing for season 2 is better since the plot here is a good humoured meta joke about Ducktales recasting everyone rather than bringing back existing VAs.

Also, loved the riffing on Nolan/Snyder brooding superhero movies that completely miss why people love them.
