No. We still say miles. Kilometers is only really used for actual specific distances whereas miles being used in a common phrase is still miles.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 June 2017 - 04:59 PM)

People from outside the U.S.: as we are all English-proficient here, do you ever use the phrase "I saw it coming from miles away.", or do you say "kilometers" instead?

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:06 PM)

Wow, that was supposed to :shout" hours ago...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 04:05 PM)

Indeed. Especially on opening week. We're talking avg, 5-8%. It's more at your discount/sub-run houses.

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 June 2017 - 10:25 AM)

AMC knows it, freakin $7 for a regular drink

@  Paladin : (22 June 2017 - 08:22 AM)

and if you want to support your theaters, buy more concessions. because they get SHIT from the ticket sales...

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:15 AM)

So, we charged an extra $1 per. F'em

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:13 AM)

First, they threatened to stop sending us digital because we weren't upcharging for it (back when we were still "mixed" format). Then they threatened to stop sendingus 3D because we didn't upcharge for those either initially.

@  Hg Dragon : (22 June 2017 - 08:12 AM)

Can't blame the theater totally for those ticket prices. The studios have a say in them as well.

@  Noideaforaname : (22 June 2017 - 12:00 AM)

Charge 'em for the lice! Extra for the mice! Two percent for looking in the mirror twice!

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:45 PM)

Even here in Canada where price gouging is commonplace, IMAX 3-D is still $19.50

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 11:44 PM)

$27 a ticket? That's ludicrous

@  Sean Whitmore : (21 June 2017 - 11:40 PM)

I gave up on IMAX this year. I was just about able to put up with $20 per ticket, but by the time the new Kong came out, my theater started charging $27 per. They must be outside their damn minds.

@  unitremover : (21 June 2017 - 10:50 PM)

I paid for a ticket to a 2D showing but they showed it in 3D anyways for some reason. I think me taking an Ibuprofen before I went for other reasons is the only reason I didn't walk out with a massive headache.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 10:38 PM)

One thing I'll give Bay and/or the promoters of this film... I like how they've advertised on the poster that this was actually shot with real, IMAX 3-D cameras. I wish the marketing of other films exhibited a similar interest in the quality of the equipment used. Hell, for some films, being visually interesting is about all they have going for them

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 10:35 PM)

I assume the Autobots will be even bigger assholes in this one, especially Optimus

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 June 2017 - 10:35 PM)

I have my ticket to see it in IMAX this Saturday... looking forward to another bizarre, 3 hour spectacle of something or other

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2017 - 08:58 PM)

Bay already said he won't do another... but what does a persons word mean these days anyway. Doesn't really matter how bad the movies are (or aren't. You know, whatever floats your goat.) so long as they make money. And his flicks do make money.

@  Telly : (21 June 2017 - 06:12 PM)

maybe this one will do poor enough that theyll have to rethink their entire strategy going forward. and hopefully this WILL be bays last one (specially if it does do poorly). well, rethink after bumblebee anyway

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2017 - 06:07 PM)

Yeah... the reception for the movie has been... mixed to poor to say the least. Thanksfully, I gave up on the bayverse films after the first one.

@  Telly : (21 June 2017 - 05:46 PM)

well theres SOMETHING showing in movie theaters. whether it can actually be CALLED a "movie" seems to be debatable

"Bowdlerizing" basically means censorship, in the "removing anything the person in charge of the editing considers unsuitable for children" sense.

@  Foffy : (21 June 2017 - 01:38 PM)

Sorry, not sure what happened there. Shout edited; link should work now.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2017 - 01:29 PM)

http://tvtropes.org/...Main/Bowdlerise

@  Robowang : (21 June 2017 - 09:46 AM)

What the hell is "bowdlerlize"?

@  unluckiness : (21 June 2017 - 08:39 AM)

Language evolves. As long as enough people know what the other's talking about, they'll use whatever term's handy despite incorrect etymology or meaning.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 06:48 AM)

Just saying, it doesn't suggest that Xanatos "changed the face of cartoon villainy", which would require something like influence of Xanatos himself on cartoons in general. His name being used as a shorthand on the internet isn't really relevant to this, especially when it's not about his fame specifically.

@  Patchouli Kn... : (21 June 2017 - 05:36 AM)

The English language is a bit like that, though. We know what it means to bowdlerize something, even if very few of us remember Thomas Bowdler.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 01:58 AM)

The Grandfather Clause page outright says that Xanatos Gambit is kept at that name not because Xanatos is super famous and influential but simply because the term itself is used a lot on the internet.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 01:53 AM)

The site's had a history of being weirdly biased to naming things after specific examples even when it's not the best choice, though it used to be worse (i.e. Spikeification)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 June 2017 - 01:49 AM)

TVT's naming choice is hardly proof of that a character "changed the face of cartoon villainy".

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2017 - 10:47 PM)

I'd say he's second only to the Big Bad of "Watchmen" in that regard (younger fans sometimes check out this website, and I'd rather not spoil his identity until they're old enough to read the comic).

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2017 - 10:46 PM)

Proving just how much Xanatos changed the face of cartoon villainy.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 June 2017 - 10:28 PM)

My favorite trope is "Xanatos Gsmbit", but my favorite name for a trope is "Xanatos Speed Chess"

@  Paladin : (20 June 2017 - 04:19 PM)

they're good dogs, Dracula.

@  Dracula : (20 June 2017 - 01:33 PM)

I quite like "All Animals Are Dogs"

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2017 - 01:03 PM)

Mine would be the Funny Moments page for Dragon Ball Z Abridged.

@  Bass X0 : (20 June 2017 - 01:02 PM)

@  Robowang : (20 June 2017 - 08:54 AM)

or before 1992. Even worse.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2017 - 08:48 AM)

is it after 1997? then probably bad.

@  Benbot : (20 June 2017 - 08:19 AM)

I've completely lost track of whether it's in a good phase or bad

So far we've had four waves of Titan Masters. They are as follows

 

Wave 1
    Crashbash (Squeezeplay)
    Loudmouth (Siren)
    Nightbeat
    Terri-Bull

 

Wave 2

    Apeface
    Brawn
    Clobber (Grimlock)
    Skytread (Flywheels)

 

Wave 3

    Decepticon Fangry
    Overboard (Overkill)
    Autobot Ptero (Swoop)
    Sawback (Lione)

 

Wave 4

    Repugnus
    Autobot Shuffler

 

Let's say you could give three of them a new mold body but one had to be Deluxe sized, one Voyager, and one Leader.

 

Which would you choose?

Deluxe Swoop because Deluxe is a fine size for a Swoop even if you think the other Dinobots should be bigger.

 

Voyager Overkill because being a Legend animal cassette is a death sentence in Titans Return.

 

Leader Shuffler because obviously Leader Shuffler, although I also think a Leader Brawn would be cool so he could have the toy's pillbox head as a helmet over his Dery-model Titan Master head.

Alternatively, a Deluxe Optimus Prime (based on a Titan Master from some leaked lists), Voyager Apeface, and Leader Clobber.

Make sense, elephants are really great at at least one of those two things.

I want a Titan Master Starscream who turns into a purple head.

But he's Leader-sized.
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

Brawn is getting a Legends toy so he doesn't need a larger mold IMO.

 

I was originally thinking Deluxe Repugnus, but at that size class they'd probably give him a mold that's "G1 toy with articulation" and his G1 toy (at least, his robot mode) isn't very good looking. So I'd bump him up to a larger size and hope they would be more creative with him.

 

That said... I want a new Swoop, and Apeface would be great for a Voyager and their triple-changing. And the idea of a Leader Shuffler (Torca remold?) tickles me.

Voyager Crash Bash/Clobber/Overboard(Space Crab/Robot/Dinosaur) If I can't get an accurate T. rex, I better get one that is also a Space Crab.
Leader Shuffler(Elephant/Mobile Base/Robot) Honestly it just sounds cool.
