i wish theyd dub double zeta. thats the only one im missing for the "amuro vs char" thing (and chars not even in it so...). but given some of the things ive heard about it, its probly best that they dont dub it

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:02 PM)

and im on vacation next week so ill have lots of time to watch all this lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:01 PM)

@zaku ive got war in the pocket on standard dvd already. amazon didnt have it on blu ray. bonus points to it for having character designs by haruhiku mikimoto. and this collecction is only "new" in as much as its new to me on blu ray. ive had burnt dvd copies of it all for years

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 09:44 PM)

Yeah, 00 was pretty good, and I recently watched Build Divers, and found it really fun. Got both limited editions of IBO... still need to watch them...

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:30 PM)

00 is also pretty good, basically a refined version of the Wing concept, and IBO is great.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:29 PM)

I'll be the requisite "Build Fighters is actually pretty good" chime in

@  MEDdMI : (24 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

G Gundam was the best. Horse mecha! Piloted by.... a HORSE!

@  ZakuConvoy : (24 April 2019 - 07:31 PM)

I'd probably recommend tracking down 0080 War in the Pocket to go along with your new collection, but you might have enough to watch for right now.

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:53 PM)

G Gundam will likely always rank first for me, as it is the one I find the most fun, but 8th MS was great for being the most "realistic" of the UC stuff.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:17 PM)

the only other gundam series ive watched-which was also the FIRST gundam series i watched-is wing (and ill probly get that on blu ray soon too). i know i havent watched everything tied to it, but the UC is quite enough for me lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:14 PM)

i think 8th team is my favorite, but cant say why. maybe it has something to do with them not being newtypes. i dont particularly like that concept

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:11 PM)

8th M Team, 0083, and Zeta are my favorites of the original timeline. Have yet to watch Origin, but it is loooow on my list, as I never particularly liked Char. Quattro Bajeena was actually kinda cool, though.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 05:49 PM)

so i just did something insane. i bought gundam origin, first gundam, 08th ms team, operation stardust, zeta gundam AND chars counterattack on bluray...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Hollywood stereotypes, eh? Don't get me started on how sheerly unrealistic that can be, and how badly Hollywood loves to stick to them.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:44 PM)

Also, fun fact: To me, Dutch is the language that sounds harsh compared to German.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:37 PM)

Generally, nobody shouts at each other in Germany unless they're either a) morons or b) doing it for comedic effect.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:36 PM)

... based on an outdated way of speaking (I mean, does anyone in the US still speak like Joe Friday?)... which might also have been at least partially a regional thing.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Generally, many native English speakers' primary conception of the German language and its perceived harshness comes from Hollywood movies... created by non-native German speakers, with non-native German actors giving their impression of what they think the German language sounds like...

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:33 PM)

I might be severely biased, but as a native German speaker, I think the perception of the "harsh German language" is at least in part due to a myth created by Hollywood.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 April 2019 - 09:17 PM)

Would I be jaded if i said that's a good lesson about people as well?

@  CORVUS : (23 April 2019 - 09:01 PM)

Overstated risk. Most observations of sexual cannibalism in the Praying Mantis occurred in captivity, versus nature. When entomologists began observing them in nature instead, they found that sexual cannibalism took place around 30% of the time. Basically, if a male Mantis avoids thin, hungry females, his chances are pretty good. #yesimanerd

Don't we all want to get laid?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 04:53 PM)

I'd spend the first few loops just taking an extended nap.

@  Dekafox : (23 April 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Endless death time loops certainly happen enough in Star Trek

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 03:50 PM)

That's not what I had in mind but if that is what you would do in that scenario then that is pretty messed up. I would not want to be stuck in a perpetual loop of death. More like getting laid but that is just me.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 01:58 PM)

Happy death day to you!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 01:45 PM)

.... I would love that. To be stuck in an endless loop where no one remembers what happened... The possibilities :D

@  ZakuConvoy : (23 April 2019 - 01:43 PM)

Are you stuck in a Groundhogs Day situation? Because if you are, you need to tell the rest of us so we can take advantage, too.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 11:10 AM)

Lol today needs to end asap so that I can start over tomorrow

@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

NO, NO no! just leave the Halloween franchise alone already, i had enough.

 

 

It's time they just retire the beloved horror icons like Freddy, Chucky, Michael, Pinhead and Leatherface to pass on and rest in peace, they had their place in the sun and need new ideas and new franchises. They done more than enough stories, more than enough movies and there's nothing more you can offer to these characters.

 

Me and one of my favorite youtube reviewers Ocpcommunications and Ramboraph4life all agree with this. Enough is enough! there's nothing to make these characters fresh or any stories to add anything worth and with these sequels and remakes, we feel these are hurting their legacy. Me and them think it's damaging things and turning the characters into jokes as we are tired of it! it's becoming like the Leprechaun or Witchcraft or Children of the Corn franchises and just running it into the ground. Me and them feel like Tom Atkins at the end of Halloween III with the "stop it STOP IT STOP IT!!!", we had a good run (Well sometimes) yet with a bad remake of Elm Street as Englund is Freddy, It's been 10 years since the last Friday The 13th as i really enjoyed the 2009 one yet it did alright in the box-office but no sequel.

 

I don't need a fake-ass Halloween 2 being this one when we have the real one in 1981 and the series should had ended 20 years ago as Michael died and there is no such thing as "resurrection", i don't need to pay to see Halloween 11 in theaters, what's more to do then just rehash the first movie?. I also don't need a fake-ass Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 known as Texas Chainsaw 3D when the real TCM 2 came out in 1986.

 

The Halloween remakes were no help at all! what's Carpenter gonna do with this one? he can do different movies than Halloween and maybe he should do a new movie.

 

How many times have me and Ocpcommunications and Ramboraph4life have been screwed by these writers/directors on these horror franchises, it hurts we are done and we can't take it anyone! Halloween 5 and resurrection were bad enough and 6 was mediocre enough, H2O should had been the last one instead of screwing the pooch. We have new ideas that should had been released in theaters like Behind the Mask to Tucker vs Dale as they are fresh stuff to The Collector movies! even Saw was ran into the ground and the last one bombed.

 

Me and those 2 guys feel in pain and if anyone is a fan of the characters i mentioned and don't like what's been done to them in the past 10 or 20 years, then don't go see the movie in the theaters. Why keep supporting this shit? me and those 2 guys don't understand at all.

 

I mean how many Hellraisers are they still doing when they should know when to quit? or Chainsaw Massacres or shitty Child's Play movies they are still doing? a Child's Play TV series? screw that, i'm not gonna see it since Mancini has screwed this franchise into the ground after 3 as i'm fine with the true Child's Play films being 1 to 3 and things went downhill after that no thanks to the writer as he is a poor writer/director as he may did good work on 1 and 2 even the Tales from the Crypt episode Fitting Punishment and did some ok work on Child's Play 3 but after 3 things went on a decline as this franchise isn't getting any better as Brad Douriff feels tired of this character. If people like the new sequels then cool as it doesn't mean me and the 2 guys i mentioned don't have to, i have problem if people like these new sequels but me and the 2 reviewers don't understand it because we think the new sequels (Seed, Curse and cult) just suck ass.

 

If your like me with Ocpcommunications and Ramboraph4life and is sick of this shit then stop supporting it! that's how your gonna send your message to the studios. That's how your gonna get your message across! if you want to see a new sequel to any of the franchises i mentioned then just see it on Netflix or rent it, cheaper than a movie ticket if your really that curious. What do you think your gonna see with the new Halloween movie what you've already seen before? Jamie Lee already came back in H2O and Michael unmasking was shown in Halloween 5 as he cried like a wuss and seen him talk in Rob Zombies Halloween 2.

 

Look at Hellraiser, it was pushing it after the third film yet they had to go into space with four and wasn't even the worst one well keep making Hellraiser movies, enough is enough. It's like "Why"? studios don't be like Witchcraft or Children of the Corn, and this reminds me what happened with the Universal monsters came in and had huge characters, huge names! then they pumped out sequels (Bride is the only worthwhile sequel) and became overkill, had diminishing box-office and became jokes of themselves with the sequels even starring in Abbot and Costello films despite Abbot and Costello were enjoyable.

 

I mean what next Jason or Leatherface or Freddy in some comedy where they meets Harold and Kumar? is that where it's going? you gotta know when to stop. Universal monsters have been so overused they don't know how to do a proper reboot series and couldn't do it with Van Helsing, they tried it with the Mummy and Dracula yet they failed with Dark Universe. There's no when to quit or end, when do these remakes of these franchises worked? well Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday The 13th i like them but nothing came of sequels, just end already.

 

The horror franchises and iconic characters are just screwed/prostituted out by studios to make a quick buck, it also reminds me and the two reviewers of the slasher boom in the 80s when it crashed by 1989. They are beating this dead horse at this point, it's a dead corpse and these horror icons i mentioned are like the monsters in the Abbot and Costello movies, as it's like complete and total jokes. Yet you can argue, they were getting to that point before this! why even continue? why studios you continue to stain their legacy or their name more for it's like i don't understand, is it just laziness? i mean horror audiences go to see in a big name, we'll get the money and it's disappointing. Its also sad and crazy to see films like Cult of Chucky to get people praising it saying like it's "great", all that does is kill the franchise with the mentality of "I want more" and Mancini has killed it, i mean Chucky won with a stupid cheat code as he's invincible now. What's even the point? the franchises i mentioned which have the slasher icons are now wounded half-dead animals at this point and sometimes it's better to kill something than let it suffer.

 

Studios never think clearly but this message should make them think clearly when enough is enough. Yet they look at the bottom line too! it's overkill and they are just whoring these iconic horror franchises out for money and me with Ocpcommunications/Ramboraph4life don't understand why fans of these franchises just be like "yeh i'll pay for that" as we don't get it. The message is simple: Stop! stop taking these horror icons and digging them up their corpses out the ground, propping them up and dusting them off then throwing them into new movies acting if they were as cool as ever or as fresh or as popular as they were in the 80s and 90s. cause it's not! it's not the case try to make an effort into something and let the series live on in the merchandise, blurays. streams etc. there were enough stories to tell.

 

Just hang it up, they had good runs cause at this point your hurting things. Just channel the budget and make new horror icons plus new franchises than recyclying old glory just try to make a new horror icon. I know it hurts but it's the truth, i love the horror characters i mentioned but enough is enough but sometimes you got let go and let them rest in peace. We don't need leatherface, Freddy, Chucky or Michael become the same situation as Robocop, just let these horror icons rest in peace in favor of new franchises/horror icons.

 

Like Jud Crandall said "Sometimes dead is better".

Reading up on it, it picks up after the original while ignoring the sequels and reboot.

Actually Halloween 2007 was a remake and not a reboot which is a entirely different thing as reboots and remakes are 2 very different things in my view as a reboot is telling a very completely different story like Batman Begins for example was not a remake of the 1989 Burton film but it told a completely different story and same for Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Casino Royale, Spider-Man Homecoming, Star Trek and Man of Steel are true reboots. Halloween 2007 is a remake and a remake is telling the exact same story as the original and that is what a remake is.

Could be a fair distinction, although the way Carpenter has trashed Zombie's efforts it didn't sound like just copied the original as opposed to say the Nightmare on Elm Street remake. I haven't seen a film from this franchise in a couple decades. This is the first one that's piqued my interest in a very long time.

 

Not enough to go to a theater, but if it winds up on Netflix or Hulu I'd watch it.

Isn't this a de facto remake of Halloween H20?

The only slasher sequel that was even passable was Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. If you expand the genre to include all the "Cabin in the Woods" tropes, then add Evil Dead 2 and Hellraiser 2. It's seriously been 28 years since ANY slasher franchise was good.

I'm willing to keep an eye on this one simply because we're changing the tropes a bit.

 

This is a world in which Michael and Laurie got older. Laurie's arguably just as bloodthirsty as Michael is now.

 

This has spirit. It has spunk. Predictable at times (I guarantee the "Michael" Laurie shoots through the window is a prankster teen), but still...not terrible.

 

 

Never going to top Zombie's ability to make Michael sympathetic but also to turn the audience against Michael by having him kill Danny Trejo.


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

I was talking about this topic with my cousin tonight; while we're both interested to see where this goes like Rust is; stuff like Leprechaun was a campy silly movie at the very start and the sequels just embraced that trying to just be fun movies.

 

I also think on the topic of sequels, you can keep an icon interesting with the right story. Curse and Cult of Chucky, especially the latter, I both find to be really strong and rather amazing movies in their own rights, Cult really ends up going in a different direction that makes me really want to see what they do with the next movie. So I am interested to see where this goes and if it can make Myers back to being an interesting villain.

To each his own, i personally thought Curse and Cult of Chucky both sucked  just like seed and so did a couple of my youtube friends Ocpcommunications and Ramboraph4life as i agree with them they should end the series already as we all 3 feel Don Mancini is a lousy writer/director and has ran this franchise into the ground and believe Child's Play 3 was the last worthwhile Chucky film worth a damn. I think it's time to move on and leave the Chucky and Michael franchises alone just like Freddy and Leatherface, they need to make new franchises and new horror icons and let the old ones rest in peace.

 

Here's Ocpcommunication's rant/review of Curse and he's a very honest man.

It's time they just retire the beloved horror icons like Freddy, Chucky, Michael, Pinhead and Leatherface to pass on and rest in peace, they had their place in the sun and need new ideas and new franchises. They done more than enough stories, more than enough movies and there's nothing more you can offer to these characters.

 

Me and one of my favorite youtube reviewers Ocpcommunications and Ramboraph4life all agree with this. Enough is enough! there's nothing to make these characters fresh or any stories to add anything worth and with these sequels and remakes, we feel these are hurting their legacy. Me and them think it's damaging things and turning the characters into jokes as we are tired of it! it's becoming like the Leprechaun or Witchcraft or Children of the Corn franchises and just running it into the ground. Me and them feel like Tom Atkins at the end of Halloween III with the "stop it STOP IT STOP IT!!!", we had a good run (Well sometimes) yet with a bad remake of Elm Street as Englund is Freddy, It's been 10 years since the last Friday The 13th as i really enjoyed the 2009 one yet it did alright in the box-office but no sequel.

 

I don't need a fake-ass Halloween 2 being this one when we have the real one in 1981 and the series should had ended 20 years ago as Michael died and there is no such thing as "resurrection", i don't need to pay to see Halloween 11 in theaters, what's more to do then just rehash the first movie?. I also don't need a fake-ass Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 known as Texas Chainsaw 3D when the real TCM 2 came out in 1986.

 

The Halloween remakes were no help at all! what's Carpenter gonna do with this one? he can do different movies than Halloween and maybe he should do a new movie.

 

How many times have me and Ocpcommunications and Ramboraph4life have been screwed by these writers/directors on these horror franchises, it hurts we are done and we can't take it anyone! Halloween 5 and resurrection were bad enough and 6 was mediocre enough, H2O should had been the last one instead of screwing the pooch. We have new ideas that should had been released in theaters like Behind the Mask to Tucker vs Dale as they are fresh stuff to The Collector movies! even Saw was ran into the ground and the last one bombed.

 

Me and those 2 guys feel in pain and if anyone is a fan of the characters i mentioned and don't like what's been done to them in the past 10 or 20 years, then don't go see the movie in the theaters. Why keep supporting this shit? me and those 2 guys don't understand at all.

 

I mean how many Hellraisers are they still doing when they should know when to quit? or Chainsaw Massacres or shitty Child's Play movies they are still doing? a Child's Play TV series? screw that, i'm not gonna see it since Mancini has screwed this franchise into the ground after 3 as i'm fine with the true Child's Play films being 1 to 3 and things went downhill after that no thanks to the writer as he is a poor writer/director as he may did good work on 1 and 2 even the Tales from the Crypt episode Fitting Punishment and did some ok work on Child's Play 3 but after 3 things went on a decline as this franchise isn't getting any better as Brad Douriff feels tired of this character. If people like the new sequels then cool as it doesn't mean me and the 2 guys i mentioned don't have to, i have problem if people like these new sequels but me and the 2 reviewers don't understand it because we think the new sequels (Seed, Curse and cult) just suck ass.

 

If your like me with Ocpcommunications and Ramboraph4life and is sick of this shit then stop supporting it! that's how your gonna send your message to the studios. That's how your gonna get your message across! if you want to see a new sequel to any of the franchises i mentioned then just see it on Netflix or rent it, cheaper than a movie ticket if your really that curious. What do you think your gonna see with the new Halloween movie what you've already seen before? Jamie Lee already came back in H2O and Michael unmasking was shown in Halloween 5 as he cried like a wuss and seen him talk in Rob Zombies Halloween 2.

 

Look at Hellraiser, it was pushing it after the third film yet they had to go into space with four and wasn't even the worst one well keep making Hellraiser movies, enough is enough. It's like "Why"? studios don't be like Witchcraft or Children of the Corn, and this reminds me what happened with the Universal monsters came in and had huge characters, huge names! then they pumped out sequels (Bride is the only worthwhile sequel) and became overkill, had diminishing box-office and became jokes of themselves with the sequels even starring in Abbot and Costello films despite Abbot and Costello were enjoyable.

 

I mean what next Jason or Leatherface or Freddy in some comedy where they meets Harold and Kumar? is that where it's going? you gotta know when to stop. Universal monsters have been so overused they don't know how to do a proper reboot series and couldn't do it with Van Helsing, they tried it with the Mummy and Dracula yet they failed with Dark Universe. There's no when to quit or end, when do these remakes of these franchises worked? well Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Friday The 13th i like them but nothing came of sequels, just end already.

 

The horror franchises and iconic characters are just screwed/prostituted out by studios to make a quick buck, it also reminds me and the two reviewers of the slasher boom in the 80s when it crashed by 1989. They are beating this dead horse at this point, it's a dead corpse and these horror icons i mentioned are like the monsters in the Abbot and Costello movies, as it's like complete and total jokes. Yet you can argue, they were getting to that point before this! why even continue? why studios you continue to stain their legacy or their name more for it's like i don't understand, is it just laziness? i mean horror audiences go to see in a big name, we'll get the money and it's disappointing. Its also sad and crazy to see films like Cult of Chucky to get people praising it saying like it's "great", all that does is kill the franchise with the mentality of "I want more" and Mancini has killed it, i mean Chucky won with a stupid cheat code as he's invincible now. What's even the point? the franchises i mentioned which have the slasher icons are now wounded half-dead animals at this point and sometimes it's better to kill something than let it suffer.

 

Studios never think clearly but this message should make them think clearly when enough is enough. Yet they look at the bottom line too! it's overkill and they are just whoring these iconic horror franchises out for money and me with Ocpcommunications/Ramboraph4life don't understand why fans of these franchises just be like "yeh i'll pay for that" as we don't get it. The message is simple: Stop! stop taking these horror icons and digging them up their corpses out the ground, propping them up and dusting them off then throwing them into new movies acting if they were as cool as ever or as fresh or as popular as they were in the 80s and 90s. cause it's not! it's not the case try to make an effort into something and let the series live on in the merchandise, blurays. streams etc. there were enough stories to tell.

 

Just hang it up, they had good runs cause at this point your hurting things. Just channel the budget and make new horror icons plus new franchises than recyclying old glory just try to make a new horror icon. I know it hurts but it's the truth, i love the horror characters i mentioned but enough is enough but sometimes you got let go and let them rest in peace. We don't need leatherface, Freddy, Chucky or Michael become the same situation as Robocop, just let these horror icons rest in peace in favor of new franchises/horror icons.

 

Like Jud Crandall said "Sometimes dead is better".

 

Well said.

I mean, these movies were never high cinema. I enjoy all of them but if we are going to claim they've been ruined, let's be real.

That's where I'm at. Just watch the ones you like and skip the ones you don't.

And I'm always surprised with Freddy and Jason, for how long those series cared about continuity. Halloween too, even if it got insane. I love that these movies have so many sequels.

Once you have crappy movies in a series there is no reason not to try to bring them back around. Look at what Fast and the Furious or Rocky and Rambo did.

I could get the concern about a new entry in an old franchise that only ever had good or well regarded movies. Take Indiana Jones. People where worried about Crystal Skull. Yeah it mostly sucked, and I wished it was just the original 3 (i know Temple has its haters) but now that there is a garbo in the series there is nothing to loose by trying to ad another good movie.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Indeed. These movies aren't Shakespeare.

 

Heck, as much as people gush about Cabin in the Woods being a self-aware horror trope film, I always point out Jason X did it 11 years earlier. Jason X is a delightful parody of the Slasher genre as a whole and I remain surprised so many view it with scorn. As if it's this is supposed to be taken seriously:

 

 

Or, if you want to go back even earlier...

 

 

"HE'S KILLING MEEEEEEE!" :D


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

In general, opinions on how good slasher movies USED to be remind me of people who forget how absurd G.I. Joe was and want pure, super serious military stories.

It never was this. It never should be this.
