But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 November 2019 - 05:10 PM)

But why does the God of Death need a giant space kaiju? Wait, never mind, answered my own question.

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 November 2019 - 02:15 PM)

Yowza I just realised Titans Trypticon comes with Necro AKA Censere AKA Mortilus.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

I... think the best equivalent would actually be the British "There is room for improvement".

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

There's always a sense of irony to it, but what the ratio between irony (you really failed) and straightworwardness (at least you achieved something) is depends on the situation and the speaker.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:12 PM)

The meaning can be both literal (you succeed on one level but fail on another), or it can be utterly ironic (you fail in every regard but the most technical; or even worse, "you really gave your best"), and anything in between.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:10 PM)

For example: A singer can hit the notes really well, but clearly isn't a native speaker and what little of the lyrics you can make out sounds nothing like what it's supposed to be.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 01:06 PM)

The premise seems to be the mixing of technical and aesthetic technical qualities towards the overall success.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 01:05 PM)

But both "hollow victory" and pyrrhic victory" are referring to having lost as much as you've gained. IE; a battle was won but both armies were destroyed. The town being seiged is victorious, but all the soldiers are still dead. Nevermore's concept is more "You did it, but it's so ugly we don't know if you actually succeeded".

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:35 AM)

Alternately, one could probably also call it a "hollow victory".

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:35 AM)

Example: In the Powerpuff Girls episode "Uh Oh Dynamo", the monster-of-the-day was a really tough, giant-size one that required the use of a really destructive mech to defeat it. While the monster was ultimately beaten, the city of Townsville was utterly trashed by the mech's weapons in the process. So, while the city was saved from the monster, it was harmed even worse by the mech that saved it, making the victory bittersweet.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 11:32 AM)

@Nevermore, sounds to me like what one might call a "bittersweet victory". The goal was met, but at great cost or by disastrous result that call into question if the achieved goal could even be called a success.

@  Arvegtor : (10 November 2019 - 09:40 AM)

Seems to be close enough to "Pyrrhic victory"

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 November 2019 - 09:37 AM)

What do you get from putting the German term through a translator?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 November 2019 - 08:57 AM)

That is a ridiculously interesting concept. But I don't think english has a singular term for what you're describing.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 08:28 AM)

Is there an English equivalent for what we Germans call "deductions in the B rating"? Context: Someone did something and suceeded on a technical level (as in, achieved the intended goal), but failed to some degree in the details, i.e. there was some collateral damage, or while a technical success, the end result is an aestetic failure. It can be used highly ironically, as in "barely achieved the intended goal, but failed so much in every aspect that's not purely technical that it might as well be considered an utter failure altogether." The German term is derived from the old judging syste in figure skating, which gave separate ratings for "technical merit" and "presentation", with the latter being the origin of the German term.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 November 2019 - 02:32 AM)

Huh. I did not know before today that "medieval" had an alternate spelling "mediaeval". Like "paleontology" and "palaeontology".

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 November 2019 - 04:15 PM)

'Beast Wars in underrated' the comment went. I exploded.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (09 November 2019 - 02:19 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (09 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I feel like the best way to carry the Switch would be an under-arm torso holster.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 November 2019 - 03:38 AM)

I feel like the Switch Lite is a bit big to have hanging on your belt like that, but I don't take my Switch out with me often anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (07 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

every Halloween since we got a house, TMM and I chill in the driveway with a fire bowl and roast things while handing out candy. It's pretty great.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 November 2019 - 03:42 AM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 November 2019 - 11:42 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (06 November 2019 - 11:41 PM)

I think a lot of the decline you see in Halloween is due to newcomers to Canada who don't really get it... I mean,there are only a handful of countries in the world that practice this particular oddity

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (06 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I recently attended a talk on Samhain and its associated mythology by a professor from Limerick.

@  Otaku : (06 November 2019 - 11:49 AM)

Trunk or Treats have become more popular because it is supposed to be safer, and even if it isn't, it just tends to be easier for the Trick-or-Treaters.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 November 2019 - 11:00 AM)

That's okay: between ever more extreme weather, ever more violent society, and general paranoia of parents: halloweens not doing to well out here either.

@  Anonymous X : (06 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

We used to have Bonfire Night here in the UK as our thing instead of Halloween... It's withered away for the most part. Halloween used to be the strange American tradition you knew of from ET or various cartoons

I've just finished episode 8 of this. Really enjoying it but damn it is dark, dunno if I'd let a kid watch this.

Never watched the original, I'll need to give it a look but I've read some things about it and it makes the whole thing a bit depressing.

Deet is probably my favourite, and I love the Chamberlain, can't believe that's Simon Pegg.

Great visuals, sometimes the fact that they are puppets is a bit distracting though like during battle scenes.

Is episode 7 anyone's favorite episode even the puppet show within the puppet show and love Heretic and Wanderer?

 

This show is Henson Company's biggest triumph in a long time since Dinosaurs and Farscape.

 

Who remembers those 2 shows?

I do!

Farscape remains, in my opinion, one of, if not the, greatest sci fi space adventure show, ever! The puppetry magic in that show is incredible. The way they brought the puppets to life and made you deeply care about them. I love how the Peacekeeper Wars ended. Although i can't deny that i wish there was more.

Dinosaurs is a surprisingly deep and funny, yet darkly tragic shoe. I'm willing to bet nobody saw the end of the series really going the way it went.

Age of Resistance is another Henson triumph and shows just what wizardry can be done to breath life into puppets.

The last time I watched through Dinosaurs, it seemed rather low-budget.  The supporting characters often reused the same dinosaur costumes.  It was distracting to see the same costume portray different characters.  Regardless, it was a weird, fun, surprisingly deep show.

 

I never got that low-budget feeling from Age of Resistance. It looked great start to finish.

The CG tongues did stand out a little. Especially when they'd switch from CG to puppet and back within the same conversation (looking at you, Archer).

Aughra was hilarious even when she was trying to make Thra sing at first with smoke and all. She reminds me of Gaia from Captain Planet meets Yoda.

 

https://www.youtube....ab0J9IyXw6p901U

Does this scene remind anyone of any ritual in James Cameron's Avatar and Frank Herbert's Dune books of the Navi doing their rituals even in front of a tree and when the Fremen take spice to go on mind trips?

 

Who else thinks this and Blade Runner 2049 are the only 80s retro film revivals that worked where some failed miserably?

 

 

Yes indeed both this series and Blade Runner 2049 were made by fine people who are skilled and has passion for the original source materials and projects they were working on, and that's why they succeeded in capturing the spirit of the originals while at the same time be their own animal as BR 2049 is a sequel and AOR is a prequel series. This show and BR 2049 are examples Hollywood should see of how to properly revive stuff from films from the past and i'm glad AOR is Netflix's number one show now as a hit and season 2 coming.

 

Both are definitely not cashgrabs done for the sake of a quick buck only to mess up things but have actual passion care and respect for the worlds and source.

 

Stuff like the Ghostbusters reboot for example aka Ballbusters 2016 (it's a term used by Youtube reviewer Ocpcommunications in his rant/review of Ghostbusters 2016 because it doesn't deserve to be called Ghostbusters because it shoots the logo of the franchise in the dick within the movie and it's no joke there is actually a scene where the logo of the franchise is shot in the crotch) was a soulless corporation cash in with a gimmick and Paul Feig was never a fan of Ghostbusters or the franchise and he only did it for a paycheck and i can tell he was outside his comfort zone doing a PG-13 tentpole film than a smaller R rated film which he's better at than PG-13 and not to mention a horrible unfunny script with no sarcasm/intelligent humor that lacks the brilliance of the original's script or lacks the fun of the second movie, no chemistry between characters, unlikable characters, shitty CGI, sexism towards males even making all male characters assholes or idiots as the movie was a manbashing parade and all that.

 

Robocop 2014 remake was another one made for a paycheck by someone who was a gun for fire and made by inexperienced writers who had to turn Robocop into Robocrap and into another PG-13 watered down Robocop when they should had learned from the mistakes of Robocop 3 which that filmed killed the franchise and now they killed Robocop again by taking away his balls and his edge of the first 2 movies. Robocop is never meant to be a family friendly franchise as since 3 they keep watering him down with the tv show, miniseries and now remake which turning him into a joke and no respect for the character. Plus misses the point of the character. 3 was a another horrible attempt to pander Robocop to the family market when Robocop was established by he first 2 as an R rated character/franchise then neutered him with 3 as the TV show even watered him down. 3, the miniseries and remake also lacked the excellent satire of the first 2 and Robocop was not a badass like the first 2 movies. Attempts at emotion in the remake failed as the actors can't act their way out of a paper bag and flat direction where in the original Robocop i felt bad for Robocop for losing his family and Weller actually had emotion. Even Weller's replacement in 3 sucked as Robocop as well as the other actors who tried to fill in Weller's shoes over the years. Richard Eden was closet but still nowhere near Weller.

 

Alien hasn't had a great movie since Aliens, i felt Alien 3 was a joyless cold sequel that killed the franchise for me since i saw it in theaters at age 10 as i enjoyed the first 2 but saw they had no passion for the first 2 films when the original Alien 3 script was much better and it turned Ripley into a hollow drained out by essence shell of her former self and all that as every Alien sequel/spinoff keeps being hugged up by Fox and i'm tired of it, to me Aliens was when the franchise rose into the sun with the ending and i will ignore all hollow alien films like 3, Resurrection, AVP 1 and 2, Prometehus and Alien Covenenant's existence.

 

The Predaturd 2018 was a horrible horrible sequel that was done for a paycheck and turned the character into a complete joke, while Predators was disappointing but it tried but The Predator was a godawful insult to the franchise. Predator 2 was the last worthwhile film. Critters a New Binge was purely garbage that turned the franchise into a joke, just when i thought Critters 4 was bad and Critters Attack was mediocre Binge was crappy as hell and Critters 2 was the last good Critters movie.

 

Elm Street remake was a piece of crap made by inexperienced writers and an inexperienced director who showed he was never a fan of the original film or franchise and it proved with a horrid script, unlikable characters, poor direction, lousy attempts to be scary and all. While Jackie is a good actor, his Freddy sucked as soulless, vacuous imitation, devoid of all charisma. robert englund IS freddy krueger, accept no substitutes.

 

Last Jedi is the worst Star Wars movie to date and has a lousy script, poor characterization and was very disrepectful to Luke Skywalker, as i will never forgive them for turning a beloved character who was a likable farmboy turned hero into a sad sack emo hermit who resents himself and the Jedi and died like a fart in the wind. Plus a director who was only a a fan of Star Wars and not of Empire and Return of Jedi but only did it for a paycheck and had no experience doing a tentpole film when he did smaller films.

 

All hollow soulless failed bastardnization garbage attempts made by people who don't care or understand about the movies or franchises they were hired for, having a clue or inexperienced writers or poor writers or executives who greenlighted shitty scripts only to get money and not care about properties.

 

Blade Runner 2049 and AOR are examples how you properly revive an older film in a proper  manner. Take Denise Villanue who is an excellent director and he made some quality films and is a passionate fan of Blade Runner since the beginning and influenced him to make movies, so he made the film because he was passionate about the project even hired some good writers being one of them one of the writers for the original and expand upon the classic film. Louis  is a servicable director despite he's no Luc Besson but still servicable as he did well on the first 2 Transporter films, Unleashed and Incredible Hulk 2008 and he has been a fan of Dark Crystal since he saw it in 1983 in his country as a kid at the movies and one of the films that influenced him to become a filmmaker. Plus he heard about a prequel series project he was in and even the writers and some of the stars are fans of the original film even the guy who played Elton John in Rocketman grew up with Henson's works and so was Simon Pegg who saw it at the movies growing up when he was 12.

 

The key ingredient is fine directors who are fans of originals even writers who are fans of the properties and actual passion, love and care for both the movies and projects they are doing even giving a damn. And i'm happy AOR is the number one Netflix series now and a blockbuster and soon will get season 2.

 

This show's success plus Child's Play 2019, Shape of Water, Blade Runner 2049, Interstellar, Mission Impossible 6 and more should usher a new age of practical effects making a comeback in the mainstream.

 

Who else thought the eye sequence in episode 2 was terrifying but not as shocking as the broken wood scene in Lucio Fulci's Zombi 2 aka Zombie aka Zombie Flesh-Eaters?

There is a LOT wrong with SW Last Jedi and its the film that could well kill off SW movies depending how Ep9 preforms at the box office, a message was sent with Solo's failure but they gotten the wrong message from the sounds of it!

 

As for the other reboots, they been mostly cash grabs with no serious thinking going on, entertainment is changing these days, the political messaging is getting worse as they attempt to panter towards a meaningless and souless cause, many movies are relying to heavily on CGI and end up feeling like they are soulless specticals and the higher ups are making demands on the people making the movies that ends up as to many cooks in the kitchen. What many people want is actual entertainment with quailty stories, not being told what is right and wrong, also, the critics are not that trust worthly these days because they become the so called access media and they make a song and dance about movies that just turn out to be bad movies, example Last Jedi, the critics said it was great but the fans disagreed strongly.

You too will never forgive Lucasfilm for disrespecting Luke Skywalker turning him from likable hero of the galaxy to sadsack emo hermit and died like a fart in the wind?

 

I'm glad Aughra with the Skeksis are treated with respect/care even Deckard as they weren't treated like what happened with Luke.

 

You too agree Blade Runner 2049 (which is a sequel) and Age of Resistance (which is a prequel) are the only revivals of an 80s film done right? where halfassed attempts like Ballbusters (a reboot), Robocopout  3 (a sequel), Robocrap (a remake), A Nightmare on Lame Street (remake), The Predaturd 2018 (a sequel) etc. failed for the reasons i mentioned?

 

And agree AOR and BR 2049 were done by actual fans of the movies and understand what made those movies unique to the core of understanding their universes well, the original characters, making fresh new characters along with old ones, using practical effects with new effects balanced, good writers and all? Hollywood should take a look at both the next time they want to try to revive an 80s property on screen or film, hire talented people who are fans of the movies even writers who are fans and know what they are doing instead of hiring guns for hire even inexperienced writers who don't know the properties and get a clue.

can there be a different thread devoted to run-on-sentences and misogyny, please

Because i called Ghostbusters 2016 "Ballbusters" like Ocpcommunications (ever heard of that critic? he's a friend of mine on youtube and facebook and he's popular on youtube with ramboraph4life)? Him and i aren't gonna call GB 2016 Ghostbusters as it doesn't deserve to be called Ghostbusters as he's right in his review as he explains there's a scene where the Ghostbusters in that movie literally shoots the logo turned monster right in the balls and it's no joke there really is a scene in that movie where the logo actually gets blasted in the crotch by protons, that's what me and him from now on since 2016 call that movie because of that scene where the logo turned into a monster gets blasted in the balls in one scene. And if you think that's not sexist, i don't see why anyone can bust some balls, it's not just gender exclusive as a man can punch someone in the crotch, a woman can punch someone in the crotch,  an old man can punch someone in the crotch, a transgender individual can punch someone in the crotch etc. anyone can punch someone in the balls, anybody can bust some balls sort of speak. I already explained why that movie was a disaster because of terrible script, bad jokes that aren't funny even bad Chinese food jokes that didn't make me chuckle, cringe inducing cameos from the original cast members, killing the ghosts instead of busting them like cops do as it broke the established rules of Ghostbusters franchise, a poor bad guy who lacks the menace of Gozer and Viggo, poor direction, overlong and all that plus literally a scene where the Ghostbusters shoots the logo of the franchise which became a giant monster right in the crotch and i'm not kidding, there literally is a scene in that movie featuring that and that's why i'm calling it what it is, Ballbusters and it was an insult to the franchise and made by people who don't get why the franchise worked.

I grew up with them and i was 9 when Dinosaurs aired and taped every episode even the ones not on ABC that were on syndicate TV and that final episode made me sad when i was 12 25 years ago.

 

Farscape i loved since i was 17 when it debuted.

 

And you think Henson's company are geniuses for doing amazing puppetry/animatronics for those, Dark Crystal (movie and AOR), Labyrinth, Ninja Turtles the movie, Storyteller, Fraggle Rock, Muppets and more?

 

And speaking of Ninja Turtles, anyone thinks this beautiful all-maudra ceremony campfire sequence is quite the most powerful and emotional Henson company campfire sequence since Ninja Turtles the movie?
