"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  -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)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲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)

Bossk Saw

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

Bass XD

@  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

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

Burton's Batman feels a lot campier in this day and age of high-quality superhero films, too.

Burton's Batman was dark but not serious.

 

 

It was 'serious' for an 80's flick. iirc Batman was kinda 'tainted' by the West series at the time, that is most thought there was no way Batman could really be taken seriously, And Burton who was a fan of the comics wanted to prove that wrong.

Burton wasn't really a fan of the comics in general. He's said that he had trouble even reading comics before Killing Joke due to dyslexia or something.

I still don't why the first two Fox movies are hated like they are. I know they aren't perfect but are they really that bad? My only issues were the casting of Jessica Alba as Sue and the way they handled Doom and Galactus. Alba wasn't bad but her face always gives me this pouty look for the majority of the films. That and she doesn't look good as a blond.

 

Doom isn't as much an issue. I get the whole back story and it makes more sense in a more normal universe. Having him as a business mogul is more normal than some European tyrant who went to school with reed and got disfigured trying to bring his mother back from the dead. But there is the problem, it makes him much too normal. He's not a super genius with a background in science and sorcery, he's just an ass riding on the coattails of others greatness.

 

Galactus, cloud, nothing more needs to be said.

 

I just don't get the hate for the Thing. Sure it's not the best they could have done but I think it was a good likeness to the comics and Chilkis I think was great in the role. Sure Fan4stic showed us they could do a decent CGI thing but it was wasted on a lousy adaption worse than the previous two.

 

But that said and the topic of the thread I still need to try and watch the Corman version. Can't be any worse than the first live action X-men adaption. And by that I mean Generation X's tv movie in 96 :D

Saw this eons ago, remember it being about VHS quality and the video in Forty's first post looks similar. Can't say I'll ever watch it again unless they find the masters and put it out in HD, then it might be worth another laugh at.

 

Wonder what they're going to do with the movie rights to FF now that the movie franchise surely has to be dead. If they were to go back to the idea of selling the rights back to Marvel their biggest bargaining chip is putting Doctor Doom in the MCU rather than the group itself you'd think.

I remember hearing they had the rights for the Fantastic 4, and it was about to expire. So they went and shot the movie in a rush, before they lost the rights. I was never able to find the movie, to actually watch, not for lack of trying.

Word is they are going to try for a Dr Doom solo flick. Who knows if it'll actually happen but that's the latest announcement I heard.

Speaking personally? No. I don't mind either of those films. But they are both flawed products, principle among them being the fact both Doom fights end exactly the same way, with Johnny being the one to beat Doom. But I thought the structure provided the onus for what became the principle cornerstone of the MCU - the banter.

 

And as I've said before, that version of Doom was no Doctor Doom, but he was a good take on Victor Von Doom.

flipping thru the movie channels recently, and I forget which one it was, maybe one of the Starz-es or TMCs...anyway, I had to laugh because showing was "Fantastic Four", the first of the Alba ones, but the date for it was 1994, so I proceeded in looking up the info, and the cast list and plot description was the Corman version. So weird.

I see behind a thousand lies that you try to hide

I bleed inside: you left your knife but I'm still alive
I...love the way you kill me
I love the way you watch me die

Life or death a bullet to the chest
I'd do it again...
Just when I think I've cut you out
You come with open arms to drag me down
