Thank yoo for vatching hydroolic pthress chan-nel.

@  Hg Dragon : (11 August 2020 - 11:19 PM)

Hey, do you have any grapes?

@  Otaku : (11 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

I dunno... it sounds kind of quackers to me.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 August 2020 - 05:17 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2020 - 04:36 PM)

I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

No one asked for this reboot they asked for a Hellboy 3 with Perlmen (myself included)

While 1&2 were visually stunning, and some parts of the characters were extremely well done.   I found the shoe horned "romance" was quite odd (seeing all the media for Hellboy, places the Agents at best akin to Bond with a girl/guy of the adventure).  Abe's crush (in 2) was fine, the stuff with Liz felt like a bad fan fiction.

The cartoons they made, Blood and Iron, and Sword of Storms... were very much on point with the comics.  Also the character of Liz was WAY more appealing in the toons.

Hopefully they continue on that strain.   But really, I'd have preferred a Troll Hunter's-esque cartoon series in the veins of the above.  Add in Johann and Roger....   Personally I'd love to see a BPRD movie, focused on Abe's past and horrible fate.

I'm rather optimistic.

An R-rated Hellboy reboot holds zero appeal for me.

Perlman IS Hellboy. The late, great John Hurt IS Professor Broom. And we haven't got the delt Toro Hellboy 3!

Unless this R version is done with the same care as Logan, it could just end up as a blodfy, swear filled mess of tasteless humour because 'mature'.

I hope they take the right lessons from Deadpool and Logan, though i'm not inspired.

I wouldn't worry over much about it being akin to Deadpool.

Hellboy isn't a comedian.   While he's snarky (and can be amusing), as is Abe and Liz...   the Hellboy/BPRD series is not a humour filled one.  It's tragic and violent for all involved.  Extremely so.  One can only hope they chose the R-rating to do it justice.

This is one of those rare occasions I actually agree with 2017^

 

Del Toro made the two films for me and Perlman is Hellboy. With neither it's going to work it's butt off to convince me to see it.

Maybe, since it's R-rated, we'll get some full frontal nudity.

Just copy the Simpsons and have an extended nude skateboard sequence.

Yeah, I also agree with 2017 for once. I'd much rather have a third del Toro Hellboy. It just doesn't feel right without Ron as Hellboy.

4th? 5th'd? Whatever it is, Pearman makes Bellboy, and as I recall, actively wants to reprise the role. While Del Toro would be ideal, I think Neil could possibly do it justice. Dog Soldiers (his best film) and Doomsday both give me hope for this, but it will be a real hard sell without Pearlman.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Perlman is the voice I hear when I read Hellboy comics. He is Hellboy! The new guy will only ever come across as knock-off not-Ron Perlman.

Sorry to be contrarian, but count me amongst those that never really got in sync with Del Toro's take on "Hellboy". Del Toro's technicolor imagination never fit with the horror/noir tone that the original Hellboy books tiptoed through. I really feel that "Hellboy" would be much better served with a sub-$100M budget and a studio like Blumhouse at the helm and hold high hopes for this reboot.


Yep.

I want to see Hellboy 3, not a reboot, if the reboot fails, there's always plan A, the sequel people have been waiting for and if that falls through, they might as well go and make a TV series based on the charater, comic book TV series can do well if done right.
