Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

My g-d, I saw it with some friends. Every time my friend's laughed, I wanted to call them traitors.

I think I liked naming the girls in Super babes (we wondered about Granny Goodness) and seeing the classic henchmen in the bar (Calendar Girl's Chippendales, the steroid girl from the farmer with mutant animals, joker's three stooges from the Creeper ep, Freeze's parka girls. Who were the two with the caramel and black stripes who gave Batman the milk? Who's henchmen were they?)

But, wow, the sex, the farting, Harley whining, Swamp Thing and the ending with the kissing? So embarrassing. Ivy's final attack on Ivy might have kinda funny but wasn't pulled off so well. The animation was quite atrocious too.

Just spent the last half hour watching clips that people uploaded to YouTube.  (Not the fairest way to judge a movie, I know...)

 

I won't comment on the icky parts, but some of the "funny" stuff kinda felt like Timm saw "Deadpool" and wanted to do something like that, but missed the mark.  Maybe if he didn't use the TNBA actors and designs, it might've worked slightly better.

From what i've read of comments made by Timm. He's basically dodging any 'this is part of the DCAU thing by saying its up to the fans. If you want it be, it is. If you don't, its not.

Although that just begs the question of why try so hard to make it in the style of BTAS/TNBA, get the VAs and play off that nostalgia? Timm also provides the voice of Booster Gold, is that right?

I do agree the humour, or attempts at humour miss the mark a lot of the time.

Highly disappointed in this... 

 

If anyone touts this as a return to Bat:tas... or a celebration of Bat:tas... they are full of shit.

 

Pro: Kevin and Loren are still putting in A+ voice work as the Dynamic Duo 

Con: The writing is so bad you'd wish they had cast new actors.

 

Pro: there are moments when the animation almost fools you into thinking this is a "new adventures" era episode 

Con: 88% of the time, it only reaches a look that's at best slightly off model fanart quality.... while the other 10% of the time you're wondering if they lost the model sheets after JLU ended

 

Pro: Melissa Rauch does fine with her first outing as Harley Quinn

Con: it's too bad it was this Script she was reading from

 

Pro: Paget Brewster won me over as Poison Ivy ..though I still prefer her as Birdgirl.

Con: Kevin Michael Richardson is at his Kevin Michael Richardson-est as Jason Woodrue the Floronic Man... 

 

Pro: Bruce Timm might not be any good at writing these days.. but as the voice of Booster Gold he got at least one good laugh out of me this movie.

Con: John Dimaggio might as well not have even got dressed that morning he came in to voice Swamp Thing... what a horrible waste of potential that was... my lord it's not like this was ostensibly going to be the character's first and only appearance in the Timmverse.

 

I don't know who this was written for.  It might be time to set Timm aside and rebrand the good parts of the DCAU the Diniverse

That was, realistically, average. High hopes and aversion to subject matter are getting people bunged up, but it was still worth watching. No I certainly won't be buying it. But I'm not going to pretend there weren't some great bits, but they weren't as good enough to make me overlook the bad bits.

 

I would be okay with a sequel where Harley meets more of the DCAU.


Woooo!

Okay... so it wasn't a good batman movie.

 

Fun as hell, but not a good movie. The animation was pretty awesome, and the writing for the individual characters was okay IF you were just straight up writing a bio for them. They basically phoned in character interaction. There was a couple of good lines, lots of bad ones.

 

Basically, the entire thing is where a south park episode is sired off of a B:TAS episode. Generally a bad idea, but looked good enough to somebody to get made. I repeat: it was fun. It was fun watching these individuals desperately trying to be their characters in a broken context, but that's about it. Otherwise, it... uh, "smells like discipline.".

I thought Nightwing was involved with Starfire in this new DCAU (at least that seemed to be the case in Justice League vs Teen Titans)?  So I'm guessing, whatever ambiguity about it the creators have left, this isn't really canon with the main DCAU.
