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

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.

@  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?

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

If they focus on the younger Mutants in this one, I think it could be good. They were definitely the best part about the last one IMO.

I'm fairly hyped about New Mutants. But I just don't see how they can do Dark Phoenix any justice. Fox has been keeping the X-Men pretty earth-bound. The original story was cosmic in proportions. Phoenix idly destroyed an entire star system just because she was hungry!

They'd have too much back story to deal with to even begin to try to get something near that level.

Oh, I know. And what I'm saying is that there's no way to do that and do the original saga any kind of justice. So...yeah...not too hyped for this one, gotta be honest.

I would be totally against Simon Kinberg writing and directing this, given that he co-wrote "The Last Stand", but he's been killing it with his work on stuff like Logan, Legion, and the Gifted, so he's earned a second chance at the Dark Phoenix Saga.

Disney is apparently buying the Mutants' rights. I wonder if this will now be the last movie with this cast?

I haven't seen any confirmation of this yet.

Personally if they do buy Fox. I'm hoping some things like Gifted, Legion, New Mutants, and Deadpool are left untouched.

Just got officially confirmed, thought it's a little more than buying the X-Men rights. :)

I think its most likely this will be the last X-men film for a little while, then Disney launches a reboot, fresh cast, no attachments to previous films maybe aside from the ocasonal joke. I can see Deadpool being dropped as he unlikely to fit with their future plans as movies, more than likely he'll be relegated to a TV series that meant to be a comedy of a super hero or simply discard and swept under the rug. I can see the possibilty of X-men gaining a brand new TV show for kids in order to boost its profile with them since its been about 8 years since X-men had a actual TV show. Mind you I can see Disney looking at getting Fanstastic 4 restarted once more and being more faithful to the source but time will tell and what Disney actually wants to do with their property, some of which is more than likely to be simply discarded and thrown in the bin as it not in line with their "plans" for world domination!

I hope the Gifted, Legion, Deadpool, and New Mutants continue on unfettered. Being on the fringe of the license and either critically acclaimed or successful (Deadpool and Legion at least).

I do think that an 'X-Men' X-Men is probably going to be a long way off.

I can't see Deadpool being regulated to TV with its success.

As far as future X-Men films go, Patrick Stewert and Hugh Jackman have already had their last go at their respective characters anyway. Of the remaining original cast, I'm not sure who's left who's still under contract, but without those two...meh! Who cares.

Of the First Class cast, again, not sure who's still under contract. But even there, it feels like we've had enough of those movies.

I mean, don't get me wrong. If McAvoy and the others are still under contract with Fox, wouldn't those contracts still be valid after the buyout? If so, great. If not, meh! I'm not against a reboot at this point. And bringing them into the bigger MCU either way could only be a good thing.
