I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

NIGHT OF THE COMET is one of a handful of movies I own on blu-ray and it's an underrated piece of cinema.

 

It's about two women wandering around deserted LA after a comet kills almost everyone in the city. They fight zombies, street punks, and a paramilitary organization. It is good. PLEASE watch it, everyone.

I haven't seen The Gate in so long!  I always considered it more of a funny/scary movie..  Like House and House II.  

I saw one of the channels had a Nightmare on Elm street marathon yesterday so I watched a couple.

Deep Star Six is that under water horror film right?

 

I remember being a kid and seeing the cover of the VHS at the rental store and thinking it looked neat haven't thought about it in years nor did I ever get to see it

What's on my watch list? Whatever I can find on Netflix and my local library, heh. (also, I watch "spooky" things throughout the year so October isn't really special)

 

First up was Pan's Labyrinth. I didn't like it....

I watched it for the Pale Man, thinking the whole movie was going to be this fantasy adventure (evidently I was thinking Jim Henson's Labyrinth). But the main bulk of the film's about this evil general and a group of rebels and it's all awfully predictable, and Ofilia is constantly being handed things to do instead of really starting anything on her own. Meh.

Yup, that's the one. Is it a underrated gem? Eh. Your mileage will vary there. Good practical effects for the most part, decent acting, good overall tension. More action thriller then Horror, but it holds up for repeat viewings.

I've never been much for the really scary stuff, either.  I just don't like horror films and never have.

 

I like animated Halloween specials, though.  But I don't actively go looking for them every year.  I just catch whatever animated special pops up on the TV around Halloween time.

Usually have Alien and Aliens on the list, but I watched them a bit earlier this year with a friend who hadn't seen them, actually same with House and House 2.

So still on the list

The Thing
HOcus Pocus
dog soldiers
American werewolf london and paris
Vampire hunter D and bloodlust

I'm sure plenty of others will end up on there, that's just the current ones.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Only Zombie flick I ever liked was Zombieland. (No sorry, didn't care for Shaun of the Dead)

 

Every year during this month, my roommate and I do a Halloween stream, and I'm trying to find films to show during that time.

 

Fraid I'm just not a fan of 'slasher' stuff so avoiding those.

 

Right now I don't have a definitive list yet. Mostly just ideas.

 

We always start with a Scooby Doo movie, then I know I want to end it with "My Name is Bruce" (which I've never seen)

 

Possible ideas are: 

Crybaby Lane. A nickelodeon movie that apparently they showed once and was deemed too scary for kids so it only aired once and became lost media. Finally a few years ago during some "Nick of the 90's" thing, they came clean and aired it one more time, which people grabbed and put online. Doubt it's gonna be scary, but it's more the story behind the film that has me interested.

 

Just learned about an old movie called "The Wraith". Seems interesting enough.

 

Then I still have "Brother's Grimm" on my shelf.

 

Previous years we've seen stuff like "The Frighteners" "The Faculty" "Sleepy Hollow" "Warm Bodies" The recent Goosebumps movie, "Cabin in the Woods" And yes Zombieland. (Oh and Tucker and Dale Vs Evil. Great film, go watch it.)

 

If anyone has suggestions for movies along those lines, I'm all ears.

Hadn't heard of that one. Reviews look good! Even though I'm a Romero fan and thus Team Slow Zombies.
