I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

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?
