WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 July 2020 - 03:14 PM)

Convert him to Maple Syrup.

Anyone else see it? I'm making my way through it now. 

 

Kinda crazy to think about Roger Corman even coming close to a Marvel property, but here it is.

Corman could probably charm his way into any studio or franchise in Hollywood, to be honest; the man is disarmingly likeable.  In this case, though, I think he got the job primarily for his well-deserved reputation of being able to stretch a budget ($1 million for this film, I think).

 

I'd like to see this get an official blu-ray release, personally.  Corman, the cast, and everyone involved in the production deserve it.  It's not as if Fox's efforts were any better, despite costing 100-130x more. If Shout Factory can release the 1990 Captain America, this one should be possible too.

I've seen different sources go back and forth as to what the disposition of the original prints are. 

 

Most agree that someone - likely Marvel - ordered the destruction of as many prints as they could obtain. 

 

Some sources hold that what we have now we have because a single print managed to survive, while other sources hold that what we have is derived from an unofficial copy or even a bootleg that slipped out. 

 

If it's the latter, then there may not be a surviving master Shout could get the footage from.

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.

I can't be too hard on it mainly because I've never been a huge FF fan and I think they work best as part of the bigger Marvel universe. Putting them as the only superhumans somehow doesn't work for me, whilst making them do gooders with success and good publicity works well to balance the vigilante style heroes elsewhere.

I mean, it's not a GREAT film by any stretch. But in the context of the "quality" of Marvel adaptions we were seeing to that point (and for several years after)...it is simply astounding at the authenticity it had to the base property. This was "completed" in 1994, yet we wouldn't get a good superhero adaption of a Marvel property until X-Men in 2000, and the argument could be made we didn't get a film with this sort of reverence for its source material until Spider-Man in 2002.

And for all its many flaws, it is still a fundamentally decent little Fantastic Four film, marred more by its own lack of budget and the quality of some of the actors than any real failures in its script or production design (within the context of its limited budget). And compared to the films we ended up getting from Fox (with several orders of magnitude more of a budget), I think this still stands as a good adaption of the property.

This is finally explained in the DOOMED! documentary. One of the crew...I forget who...took a copy of it to get copied, and it leaked out from there,

This is damning with faint praise, but it's still the best live-action FF we've had up to now.

 

When Alex Hyde-White popped up in a cameo in Agents Of SHIELD, I was hoping that was Marvel Studios' little nod to the Corman film, but it was probably just coincidence.

I kinda like the mid 2000s ones. In a era of every comic film being dark, they were the only light hearted spot for a while.

Certainly better than the Chronicle guys one

They could have been better, but they did a really damn good job with Human Torch and Thing, and Silver Surfer in the second one. Personally, aside from Galactus Clod, I think the second one is a vast improvement over the first one.

The Thing suit is way better in the Corman version than in the first 2 FOX movies. But then, Corman had decades of prior experience in making creature costumes for zero dollars....

Campy.

 

I was cringing my way through it a few weeks ago when I watched it on a lark. Some movies age, other movies age well. Raimi's Spider-Man...it's kind of like putting on Tim Burton's Batman film and discovering the Adam West Batman film instead.
