Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

Not necessarily. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

@  Trpodeca : (17 May 2019 - 11:09 PM)

I voted. Boy there are a worrying amount of parties which sound like fascists.

Hated the animation for the first 1/4 or so. Not sure if it was suppose to be emulating a comic strip look where the color printing is not properly lined up with the inking, or if my showing was accidentally showing the 3d version, but it absolutely looked like a 3d movie without glasses, and was really grating on the eyes. I didn't notice it later on.


Yeh I experienced the same thing, my eyes kept trying to focus on the double images, very distracting.
Same here. Blue and red borders on everyone until they stopped later.

I had the same at first. Bluray, so I guess it's intentional. It made it hard to watch at first. But once it calmed down, it was a pretty fun film.

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.

Just watched the Alt Universe cut. It's not so much a complete redo of the film as it does add in some deleted stuff of varying lengths. In particular, Ganke had a much larger role before the MCU turned him into Ned and this presents a very different central relationship where Miles learns things from him rather than Peter. Miles is also presented as much more of a kid in these scenes as opposed to the teenager he is in the final film. There's also a few scenes later which add clarity to a few minor details (for instance, Kingpin's team saw through the waiter disguises but kept quiet).

 

One awful difference- the 'What's Up, Danger?' bit has Miles smack into a truck and the music cut out. Really glad they instead gave him a genuine epic debut in the final film.

The Alt Universe Cut is included on the blu-ray, yeah. The 4K and (for those regions that got one and those who imported it) 3-D discs don't have it.

Wow! Did the cut have at least a part where the villains get identified on screen? That was my complaint before. Like Tombstone didn't get a name check.

There's a lot of new villain stuff but less so introductions.

- When MJ gives Peter's eulogy, Fisk is up next and pretends to be heartbroken. He says he won't rest until he finds who is responsible for killing Spidey, causing Miles to freak out and run.
- The "focus on saving one person" bit is a in a heart to heart Peter and Miles have after the Spider-People intimidate him.
-Random extra bits during the fight at May's.
-Spider-Ham pretending to be a novelty roast pig to fool Tombstone. Except when they leave he snarks over walky talky "Yeah, it's them. They think we're stupid!" Cut to the Spiders confirming that.
-Liv comes back as the collider shuts down, referencing Raimi with "The power of the multiverse in the palm of my hand..!", willingly leaping into the void.

Whooooooa! Lady Doc Octopus jumps into the void?!? So if it's canon, she's loose in the Spider-Verse verse? That's awesome! She's actually my favorite bit in the film and I'm hoping she and her strange tube-y tentacles would show up in toy form.

I'm going to have to watch this cut! Woo!

It is worth it. Some of the stuff they cut helps the movie but other bits are amusing but excessive meta gags (like Peter branding his plan to use the collider to return 'Spider-Man Homegoing'.)

It's not a perfect movie. I still have nitpicks (like the not-naming and the non-iconic turning point) but it was still awesome overall.

Hmm, but now that I think about it, was it kinda slow at the start? With the character background (before Miles went to the underground?) if isn't someone you don't relate off the bat? I thought it was kinda funny that he was 'kid from the hood who suddenly hit it big and got into a private school'. That's not too common, I think. Unless it's folks dreaming about it.

 

That's Miles's original origin. Have you ever heard of the movie "Waiting for Superman"? That was the inspiration for Miles. It's a real thing.

 

The start's slower because it needs to set everything up for all the payoffs down the line, and it needs to get us invested in Miles so when other characters show up and act cooler we're still on Team Miles instead of wishing we could see what Noir and Ham's deal is in more depth.
