Uh oh. Here comes a flock of Wah-Wahs.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 10:54 AM)

Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

@  Dekafox : (16 February 2019 - 12:48 AM)

A red panda?

@  Rodimus Supreme : (15 February 2019 - 11:06 PM)

*WAH

@  Rodimus Supreme : (15 February 2019 - 11:05 PM)

THE HECK IS A WHAH WAH?!?!?!

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.

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)

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

I rewatched the movie in 3D a while ago and I swear to god at a point in one of the car-scenes Memo's hair was literally the only thing in the shot sticking out of the screen in three dimensions. Pretty wild.

It seems today the internet was hit with a wall of sequel confirmations and sequel confirmation denials from different actual sources and then news outlets recycling the claims as they desire, while others try to deduce the truth on the presumption that the decision making process is more cohesive than it really is.

In these instances it's best to ignore everything, since a slightly ealier belief that Bumb2ebee is happening won't change the observer experience when it does (or doesn't) happen.

Maybe we'll get Bumblebee, or Optimus Prime, or Transformers 6, or Transformers DOFP, or Cybertron Adventures, it doesn't matter right now when we're still wondering if the home release will have an extended edition with the deleted scene where Charlie and Bumblebee kiss.
Woooo!

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Honestly I just wanna see if the energon mutation scene will make it to the DVD's deleted scenes.
"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

Seems like there might have been scenes missing even from the first cut. IMDB has a bunch of credits for Otis's karate teacher and fellow students, who don't appear in either version of the film, as far as I can tell.

Could be made up, though at least one actor's website corroborated him being in the film.

My gripe about the movie is that the Decepticons don't get named again.

That said, I'd love it if someone made a cut where :

"That crazy red and black car? Her name is Crasher. And that violent blue copter dude, let's call him Coptur."

When they have they were usually featuring early unfinished CGI or were just unused animation tests. Bay tends to use everything that is usable instead of doing half measures. But who knows, maybe Travis Knight will have more content of that form in showable form.

The thing about the Transformers is that they cost way, way, way too much to actually render out and then not use. So just about everything that ends up having effects done ends up in the final version.

The one exception that jumps out at me is the scene of Bumblebee and Tessa dancing in the AOE trailer, which looked pretty much finished but wasn't in the movie.

There are probably more or less finished human scenes that are cut, but I can't imagine anybody here is dying to see those.

(Or maybe not. Bay is notorious for bringing films in on budget, and you don't do that by shooting a bunch of crap you end up not using.)

From what the guy that saw the March test screening said, there's two things removed from the cut he saw:

 

- Alot of more evil and dark John Cena scenes, some of Cena's scenes in general were reshot to make him less intense and agressive than he is in the original film even though they kept the context more or less the same.

 

-There's a shot of a G1-ish Megatron in Hooverdam while John Cena's character is talking to other S7 people, and the S7 staff agree that they can't tell Shatter and Dropkick they have him.

 

Otherwise he said the final film has alot more NEW added stuff than it has removed stuff.

I'm ultimately glad it wasn't in the final movie, but I'd like to see the frozen Megatron scene as a home release extra just because I'm curious to take a look at his design and see what was done to G1 him up.

I doubt it was a clever blend of G1 and Movie Megatron or anything. Judging by the design ethos prevalent through most of the rest of the movie, it was just G1 Megatron but ineptly modeled in 3 days.
