Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

I managed to find about 2/3s of my goal Sega Genesis collection before the last price bump

@  Anonymous X : (12 September 2019 - 11:11 AM)

So relieved that I picked up most of my NTSC GameCube collection in 2010/11 before prices on the secondary market went bezerk...

@  unluckiness : (12 September 2019 - 12:54 AM)

I have fond memories of it since it was the last console Mario Kart that didn't have the ridiculous pre-race cart assembly

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 September 2019 - 10:26 PM)

Like many Gamecube games, underrated

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 PM)

Good luck! (or break a leg if it's like theater luck...)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Three more crashes since I pulled the ram. Verifying the OS now... tonight might be a reinstalling kinda night.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:46 AM)

And thankfully it wasn't totally dead, so it was working on occassion. If the problem is actually solved, I just need to wait and see if the program/system crashes are over.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 11:45 AM)

Got it. I wound up running the memtest four more times, because of course it's always the last dimm. But I got the culprit. I lost 8 gig, but I'm still at three times the "recommended" amount.

@  Hg Dragon : (07 September 2019 - 11:09 AM)

DL and run MemTest86. It'll help weed out issues. Run 1 stick at a time. Then run a stick that passed in each slot. Will help you find out if it's the RAM or the slot/motherboard

@  Patch : (07 September 2019 - 10:45 AM)

How many RAM sticks do you have total?

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 09:57 AM)

Great, two weeks of random BSODs, and I manage to finally work out some ram has gone bad. Just need to work out which one(s) and then I can go from there.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:25 AM)

What do they want "pizza" to be called? Crpes superior?

@  unluckiness : (07 September 2019 - 01:11 AM)

Are they still suing Italian restaurants for having food that's insufficiently French?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (06 September 2019 - 10:31 PM)

Not even Quebec likes Quebec?

I actually don't have a problem with Ironhide's face. (Maybe that's not surprising, since I think the movie TFs have fantastic faces that aren't just magical metal human faces - well, weren't originally, anyway.) It's a little cartoony, but it has character and isn't just a human face painted silver or whatever that atrocity Arcee has is.

 

I do have a problem with his crapped-out body, but I've pretty much done my bit on that enough for even me to be sick of it.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

Comicbookmovie.com has an interview with Jason Drucker (Otis) about his time on the film, working with Hailee Steinfeld and what he'd like to see in a sequel. Check it out.

Its on the front page too.

Ironhide's face is actualy bad in a very specific way that makes me wonder if the artist that did the in-detail pass on the head saw the early sketch on the upper left and didn't realize the original picture has part of his chin being covered by his chest armor, leading to him really honest to god thinking that he was supposed to give Ironhide a super-low mouth with little to zero jaw-mass.

Ironhide and Arcee's faces... doesn't really bug me?  We live in a world where AoE Drift's face exists and you basically can't get worse than that, especially when it's moving.

Watched this on 4K. My first viewing since it was in the theaters. Definitely liked it more a second time. Not that I didn't like it the first time, just more now.

Cena in the outtakes is pretty great.

I've been to 6 different Walmart, Meijer, and Target stores this past weekend and all of them were sold out of the 4K copy.  However, seeing the news on the front page about the digital download of the original 1986 movie when you buy Bumblebee in 4K, I'm glad I've waited until now.  That's a nice little bonus to get.

Be wary. There is a little confusion on whether they mean TFTM or the 2007 Bayverse film when they say the Original Transformers. Dang Gen Z not knowing their TF history!

The package said to look for a code on your receipt, but mine was codeless. Curious if I bought mine too early for this promo to be in their system yet.

Technically, the 2007 one was the original "Transformers" film, while the 1986 one was "The Transformers: The Movie". :D

I am currently making copious amounts of screencaps for the wiki, and am dearly loving this movie.

But something bugs me about the the scene at Sector 7 with Whalen, Powell and Burns debating whether to let the Decepticons have access. The long shots of the table have Whalen on the left and Burns on the right with Powell standing behind it, but then the individual shots of Whalen and Burns are from Powell's side of the table which makes it kinda disorientating.
