Valentine's Day. bummer.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Or you could come to canada, where bureaucracy is a publically funded art form! So garbage and used condoms trying to make a statement about something or other, not entirely sure what.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

We've turned it into an art form.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

You think you know bureaucracy, but you've never been to Germany.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 February 2019 - 11:48 PM)

I think a better counterpart would be "society".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 February 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 05:00 AM)

Nope, none for REmake or Zero either.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 04:13 AM)

Do we have a release date?

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 February 2019 - 03:51 AM)

Looking forward to RE4 on Switch, it will be my annual playthrough.

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Don't call Floridans that. It's degrading to marine mammals.

@  Ashley : (12 February 2019 - 12:41 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 February 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Anyone here ever been to the Manatee Viewing Center right outside Apollo Beach, Florida?

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:35 PM)

The manatees were extra eager that day.

@  ▲ndrusi : (11 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Maybe they accidentally got some editorial oversight for a while or something.

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

And it shifted gears the season after, it's like there was a different head writer or editor or something one year

@  Shrug : (11 February 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was some random season after the cancellation that I thought was amazing, but I don't watch the show closely enough to tell you which one it was

@  Benbot : (11 February 2019 - 01:20 PM)

Your unintentional typo is right. It is definitely tp-tier material.

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:36 AM)

It was never tp-tier material but I used to be able to keep it on as white noise while I'm doing something else Now, I have to switch the channel because it just pisses me off at how unfunny it is.

@  Benbot : (11 February 2019 - 08:23 AM)

I don't think it's ever been very good since the initial cancellation/revival.

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 08:03 AM)

And still the same so-called "humor" but worse

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2019 - 08:00 AM)

New writers, new showrunners, fatigue. That shows had many changes over the years.

@  unluckiness : (11 February 2019 - 06:35 AM)

I don't know how it's possible but Family Guy has somehow gotten less funny.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 February 2019 - 08:47 PM)

Do you mean the retail price from when ToyBiz were making ML or the current price of vintage ToyBiz specimens?

@  B-Fox : (10 February 2019 - 08:40 PM)

Target had the entirety of the ML Deadpool Sauron BAF wave on discount. Got Omega Red and X-23 for the cost of 2 Toy Biz Marvel Legends.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 February 2019 - 02:30 PM)

@  fourteenwings : (10 February 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Actual lyrics to the ending theme of KH3: "I'm only crying 'cause I never dreamed it'd take this long."

@  Paladin : (10 February 2019 - 08:25 AM)

somebody wins, somebody dies, Disney gets all the money ever. The End.

@  Pennpenn : (10 February 2019 - 02:48 AM)

Please don't go into the details of the ending of KH3 any more than you have so far in the shoutbox. Thank you.

@  unluckiness : (10 February 2019 - 12:06 AM)

Oh well, at least it's over. Oh wait, sequel hook. Hope my grandkids like KH4 lol

@  unluckiness : (10 February 2019 - 12:05 AM)

Like, if I wait a decade for the conclusion, I want something better than a friendship and love generic anime ending

@  unluckiness : (10 February 2019 - 12:04 AM)

I like resident Evil far better because it doesn't pretend to be anything other than stupid popcorn movies.

@  fourteenwings : (10 February 2019 - 12:02 AM)

At least Resident Evil doesn't have a chart for every incarnation of every involved and how they're also secretly somebody else (especially, somehow, the protagonist).

@  unluckiness : (09 February 2019 - 11:55 PM)

Kingdom Hearts gives the Resident Evil movies a run for their money in terms of convoluted plot.

@  Pennpenn : (09 February 2019 - 07:48 PM)

Something is hidden there, obviously.

@  RichardT1977 : (09 February 2019 - 06:20 PM)

But each James Bond after the second one is apparently obligated to visit the grave of the second one's late wife...

So, I know everyone know this, but Equestria Girls is getting a three-episode mini-series on Netflix, and on DVD as MLP:  Equestria Girls:  Magical Movie Night:

 

So excited for the third episode.

I've viewed a fansub for the first one. Pretty tame start, though I suspect the second and third parts will be more impressive.

I think they decided since they already had Dance Magic, why not use it for this? Though they may have had the idea back then. Who knows?

 

Saw the first one with the English subtitles. Not bad. I could see this being a series.

Nope, Polish with English subs.

 

Mirror Magic came out today, just waiting on the subs.

 

English versions will air in the slot for pony once Discovery Family catches up to episode 11. June 24, July 1 and July 8th.

Okay so Mirror Magic.

 

I loved parts of it, annnnnd kinda sigh at parts.

 

Don't really hate these parts just... Well let me get into it.

 

First it's nice that they do talk about running out of pages. It was great seeing Sunset as a pony again, and seeing her struggle to be one, was incredibly cute.

 

However, in the first movie she had no problem running around as a unicorn again so... it feels kinda odd.

 

Was also pointed out to me, and I just double checked, yeah in the first movie Sunset's magic is green. Now it's red. I wonder if this is a side effect of the harmony purging her?

 

Starlight goes through the mirror. WHY AND HOW DOES SHE HAVE A WATCH!?

 

I have to admit, Starlight has a cute design when human.

 

It's nice seeing that random magic coming from the 'crack' is affecting things like this. Makes for some great plot devices. Though it being used this time for the tired reformed 'villain' is one of those sighs I mentioned. I mean I suppose she never was really 'bad' and it's nice they used the last short to set her up for wanting revenge, but with it being only a half hour short, the resolution comes WAY to quickly.

I have a feeling some are pissed Starlight is the heroine.

 

HOW DOES STARLIGHT GET A WATCH FROM PASSING THROUGH THE MIRROR!?

 

All in all though, it was a fun time.

 

Now we just need to figure out how those two Russian leaked songs tie into all this. From what I'm seeing I'm guessing they are apart of small shorts. Like before Rainbow Rocks and Friendship Games got.

Mirror Magic was definitely the weakest of the three. It had some good bits, yeah, but overall, it could have been better.

I haven't seen Movie Magic but I'm guessing the minis wave is about them. I couldn't resist getting Roseluck and Sweetie Drops and I'd like to ask if they appear in the eps and do anything significant?

Cuz why the heck would they have toys?! Why not Lyra? At least she was the focus in the friendship games short with Bonbon.
