random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

YES! Time to erase that bland, pointless reboot from my memory banks.

 

 

Justin Rhodes, who co-wrote Tim Miller's upcoming Terminator movie, will re-write the script that was initially turned in by Neumeier and Miner. Their version of the movie was planned as a sequel to the original film, but it was never made.

 

I thought Elysium and Chappie were kind of meh, but District 9 was fantastic and this is a guy who gets RoboCop.

 

 

“The original definitely had a massive effect on me as a kid,” Blomkamp told Deadline. “I loved it then and it remains a classic in the end of 20th Century sci-fi catalog, with real meaning under the surface. Hopefully that is something we can get closer to in making of a sequel. That is my goal here. What I connected to as a kid has evolved over time. At first, the consumerism, materialism and Reaganomics, that ’80s theme of America on steroids, came through most strongly. But As I’ve gotten older, the part that really resonated with me is identity, and the search for identity. As long as the human component is there, a good story can work in any time period, it’s not locked into a specific place in history. What’s so cool about RoboCop is that like good Westerns, sci-fi films and dramas, the human connection is really important to a story well told. What draws me now is someone searching for their lost identity, taken away at the hands of people who are benefiting from it, and seeing his memory jogged by events. That is most captivating. The other thing I am excited by is the chance to work again with Justin Rhodes. He has added elements that are pretty awesome, to a sequel that was set in the world of Verhoeven. This is a movie I would love to watch.”

Elysium wasn't great, Chappie was alright. D9 Was awesome. Even Elysium and Chappie were superbly shot and directed when it came to the action and combat. This guy really knows how to give the viewer a sense of space, and lets the viewer know what's going on, while still making it intense and intimate.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

District 9 was my movie of the year. I couldn't believe the swearing didn't turn me off, haha. Elysium, eh. Chappie, I love too. It already had an ED-209, even though it had no AI and was controlled by evil Wolverine.

Looking forward to it! Sharlo Copely would probably be Boddicker's successor (or whoever that bad guy was in the original).

I look oh so forward to seeing how Blomkamp will fit Robocop into his usual hamfisted South Africa allegorical mold.  I don't expect much.


At least Robocop already has the class warfare built in.

Eh, already did that with the third movie and parts of the TV series and made for TV movies (IIRC)

 

 

And I didn't find the reboot to be anywhere near as bad as some have made it out to be.  I think the fundamental problem was that people were expecting the same subjects of satire as the original and not the satire of the "Fox News information control" we ultimately got.  It also had some nice ideas in addressing the Murphy family dynamic, even if much of it fell a bit flat, as was much of the driving criminal conflict.

I was fine with the reboot, really.  It shouldn't have been Robocop instead of its own thing, but I liked the underlying idea of the story being mainly about dealing with amputee trauma and family trauma after a combat death, basically.

District 9 is a rubbish movie, one of the worse Sci-if movies I've seen. Robocop, I didn't really get the feel with the reboot, it felt like they purposely toned down the violence and went with a story about cooperate greed and desire to impress people by sticking their excutive murdering machines on the city streets (ED-209). Frankly, I felt much of the story was kind of lost somewhere along the line with them building Robocop and spending ages trying to improve him than actually being a cop, thou its been a while since I last saw the film. With the originals, the four film sequels, Prime Directives are good editions to the story and serve as a worthly end to that era of Robocop

I never saw the Robocop reboot and keep forgetting it exists. Is it worth a watch? On the scale of totally unnecessary remakes where "Cabin Fever" was negative-5, "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" was 0, and "Dawn of the Dead" was a 5, where would it fit?

Oh, how I envy you, Thy. It's been a few years, but I'd probably rate it a 1 or 2.

 

I mean, really, maybe it's not the most terrible movie in the world. It's got a solid supporting cast - Gary Oldman, Samuel L. Jackson, Michael Keaton, Jackie Earle Haley (well, I like him at least.) But to me it was just boring, bringing little new or interesting to the table, doesn't take advantage of its solid cast, and its digs at corporatism felt far less biting than Verhoeven's were decades ago. Maybe that's the result of the original's satire becoming real. The lead essentially played it the same going from human to robot, bland all-American. I suppose kudos for going in a different direction, but it doesn't hold a candle to the subtle but effective performance of Peter Weller.

 

It if it was legit awful I think I'd like it more, that might give it some character.

I liked the remake for the most part, my biggest issue is the not-fox News stuff, just barbecue that feels a bit too close to home imo. Beyond that, there is a lot of good in it. Some things I feel it does better, as there is a lot more emphasis on characters in this one, then the original had. Its toned down, but honestly you're not likely to find a Hollywood movie being as brutally violent as the original Robocop was. I feel it keeps what it needs to, expands where it needs to to sorta fill that void, and ends up a mostly good movie that might not be equal to the original, but I don't feel it's complete eclipsed by the orignal's shadow either.

It felt a lot more like a TV pilot than an actual film to me.  Probably mainly to changing the focus from violence and corporate satire to emotional trauma, which was admittedly an odd switch.
