I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

harlock is on tubi as well. not dubbed though :(

@  Rhinox42 : (21 February 2020 - 01:19 PM)

Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

I'm watching it tomorrow. I'm wearing my Ant-Man costume so better pad up the helmet.

Really hope it's good!

Saw it. No spoilers. Two bonus scenes at the end. On mid credits (important) and one at the very end (skippable if you really need to go to the bathroom)

Have to say that Wasp and (almost) Hank are on the same footing as Ant-Man. Wasp probably got the best of the action scenes, honestly.

Pena still got laughs but the audience laughed at a lot of parts.

Btw, I didn't see the trailer before hand so I don't know who Janet's actor is. I suddenly thought, what if they got Sharon Stone to play her, hehe.

Ghost is pretty great! Love her and wanted more. Secondary villain is, who? Dunno him.

Short rating

FYI the trailers don't show anything about Janet. Same goes for any of the commercials (that I have seen).

This is much lighter than the first one. But not Ragnarok Guardians level of silly. I actually feel that Paul Rudd can get away with being funny but acceptable but Michael Pena and co is the one that makes it a little more unrealistically silly.

Wasp really would be better trained to fight than Scott cuz she was training while Scott was just prison brawling.

I thought the same thing myself.

 

Very much enjoyed the movie, though I don't think I liked Ghost  as much as I liked Yellowjacket from the first.  The effects were pretty damn cool again, though that has been a staple of the MCU.

I came away thinking that I would have preferred Sonny Burch to have been an Englishman... if for now other reason that Giant-Man could have used the "Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum" line from Jack & the Beanstalk.

 

I noticed that some of the dialogue from the trailers got cut from the final release.

I thought it was an enjoyable, mindless kind of popcorn flick.  Infinity War is a pretty big act to follow so I wasn't expecting to be blown away.  I thought Wasp got great fight scenes but little in terms of character development.

 

It's funny, but I think my favourite part of the film was the intro, which was technically a rehash from the first film.  Maybe because it was a scene with hero'ing and actual stakes.  The rest of the film was pretty light on those two aspects, unfortunately, so definitely not really much of a superhero movie than a film about people with science-y powers pursuing personal agendas.  That's a bit of a letdown.

Im kinda irked that the last post credits scene was spoiled in trailers and TV ads both. Definitely stay for the mid credits scene as it has the larger connection to the rest of the MCU. But unless youve stayed completely away from any previews and TV ads the end credits scene isnt worth staying for.

Who was that guy anyway? Sonny Birch? An Iron Man villain? Comic Ghost was an Iron Man villain too, right?

I loved the science-y parts cuz it made it feel like a madcap affair instead of a heist (ala the first movie). Scott actually felt a little lost with all the jargon and I kinda liked that. It was a Hope and Hank adventure, really. I like this new Ghost but if she was the more tech oriented comic Ghost, it would have been great too.

Sonny Burch was not so much a villian as much as a would be competitor for Stark Industries.

It surprised me too that he was being used, since his comic persona was pretty much covered by Gary Shandling (minus the hydra) in previous movies.

it kinda makes sense in-universe that with Hank being 'back in business' so to speak that the current generation of science business badguys would be after him and his tech since well he isn't as insulated from attack as Ironman obviously is at this point.

I really just want to know who Sonny's buyers were, exactly.

 

Other than that, suitable Infinity War palate cleanser, which is exactly what I expected.  It's not a smart movie, but it's not trying to be.  Better than the first, at any rate.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
