"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)

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.

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.

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)

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

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?

And I think Cameron knew it was not gonna be as big as an MCU pic or other blockbusters else he would of made it more of a spectacle as it is it was really grounded by the source material he told the story he wanted to tell box office numbers be damned

I think with good word of mouth and home media sales, this film might gain a sequel, I know they extended its run in China (with permission of course), which is a good thing, the marketing for this hasn't been great, but good word of mouth is helping it along!

I was surprised to see zero marketing for it after it was released in theaters in the US.  No "The #1 movie in the world" or "The #1 movie in theaters".  But they already spent a boatload of money on marketing already, anymore was probably not worth it at that point.

Cameron basically ditched it on a coin toss over pursuing Alita or Avatar in 2005 and wasn't going to do anything with it until Robert Rodriguez asked him about it in 2015, so I don't think it's really much of a passion project for him once Avatar came into the picture.  And Rodriguez got to direct it since he was the only one who could tackle editing down the original 290ish page script into something watchable, so I'd say Rodriguez deserves much more credit for the film (good and bad points) than Cameron at this point.

The Fox people were just marking time at that point, since the Disney deal was over a month away from closing and they were to be laid off.

The social media accounts for this movie all stopped posting once the Fox / Disney merger was finalized.

Oh wow. So they just opted to completely step back from the distribution of shits given. That's wild.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I'm guessing, that once the purchase came through that anything they were promoting (not just this movie) should stop.  At least until things are figured out.

 

X-Men Movies Twitter's last tweet was 3/19/2019, a day before the merger was complete:  https://twitter.com/XMenMovies

 

But they only tweeted once a week, so it's interesting to see if they pick up with tweets again.

 

Since someone is likely being paid to tweet, they probably have to figure out who is doing what now.

 

so does this make it the last Fox movie of note? or are we waiting to see how shit Dark Phoenix is or isn't 

According to this list, it's the last movie to be released before the merger:  https://en.wikipedia...2000–present)

 

I just hope the BD release is not blotched

 

I doubt it.  I'm getting 4K personally.  If a 3-D release is made, that too.

There's every possibility that there was no one left to maintain the social media stuff, since we don't know exactly when the sweeping layoffs began.

The Twitter account posted for the first time just about an hour ago since the Fox and Disney merger.
https://twitter.com/...9394166784?s=19

Only about 300 theaters are still showing this. So there is a certain level of irony to the tweet.

The fact that it is still playing is quite nice. 
 
I remember back in the day when movies would be in the theater for months, and would take a year to come out on VHS rental, then take another year to be affordable to buy.
 
Now it is about 3 months from the theater start to BD...

I'm waiting for the boxset with the manga, I ordered it the other week from Amazon but it taking along time as there is a delay of about two months for it. I will get the DVD release when it comes out, whenever that is!
