If talking about it here is all it takes to get you, why hasn't the oreo thread killed you yet?

Hey man, how you deal with yo problems is yo bidness.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 July 2018 - 04:08 PM)

I did no such thing! I am innocent of the pop tart corruption!

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2018 - 02:57 PM)

You guys made me buy cinnamon roll Pop Tarts today.

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:38 PM)

@D Immortalis Just fill the bag with air first and pop that? XP Oh, and you won't like that I grew up microwaving them more often than actually toasting. ;)

@  Otaku : (16 July 2018 - 02:37 PM)

@MEDdMI Yeah, the even more artificial flavors like S'more are the ones that usually taste good cold. There exceptions... I think it was Sugar Cookie that needed to be toasted...

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 06:43 PM)

if po tarts dont POP then they become a lie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 05:10 PM)

I typically just went for the traditional flavours... I think mostly Rasberry or Strawberry. I'll have to pick up a box next time I'm out

@  MEDdMI : (15 July 2018 - 04:09 PM)

@Otaku I've tried that too with a few of them. I liked the soda flavored ones they had. Too bad they were limited. :(

@  Otaku : (15 July 2018 - 03:48 PM)

@D Immortalis Most Pop-Tarts I like are better eaten frozen... and the only reason I started doing that is because Pop-Tarts commercials told me to try them that way. XD

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 03:03 PM)

woohoo, just got my tickets to see From Ashes To New and Hollywood Undead on the 26th!

@  wonko the sane? : (15 July 2018 - 06:32 AM)

That's basically what happened to me. I was on that aisle for completely other reasons, caught sight of them in my peripheral, and then... just couldn't stop thinking about them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2018 - 02:47 AM)

Hungry for pop tarts now - haven't had those in years

@  D Immortalis : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

anyone that doesnt put theit pop tarts in a toaster is a heretic.

@  unluckiness : (15 July 2018 - 12:32 AM)

Do they still make the cinnamon-brown sugar ones?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:03 PM)

Yup. And?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 08:29 PM)

Aren't Pop Tarts like, totally junk for you by the definition of the word?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Four IS standard... but it's been so long I had forgotten.

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 July 2018 - 07:29 PM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Well, some people are into shopping, anyway.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 10:22 AM)

Taiwanese Costco also has lots of things that shoppers would want!

@  unluckiness : (14 July 2018 - 10:18 AM)

The Taiwan Costco I visited once was nice but I have to question why our guide thought it'd be a good place to bring tourists.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 July 2018 - 09:40 AM)

Lower prices, lower taxes, bigger selection... yeah, I can see that happening.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 July 2018 - 09:14 AM)

Didn't a Washington Costco make the news a couple years ago for being sheerly flooded with customers from British Columbia?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 July 2018 - 01:25 AM)

That's cool. There's a Sam's Club in Niagara Falls, where I tend to cross the border, but I've never been in. I'm a Costco member, but not Sam's Club; and unfortunately Costco makes sure there aren't any locations in the US too near the Canadian border

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 07:02 PM)

Nope, not the battle damaged version. He got it from his cousin, whose family has a camping ground in... I wanna say new york state, but I'm probably wrong. Just across the border anyway.

@  Nevermore : (13 July 2018 - 06:36 PM)

Sam's Club exclusive was the battle damaged version, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 July 2018 - 06:34 PM)

He's got friends on the other side.

@  TM2-Megatron : (13 July 2018 - 06:08 PM)

where'd your nephew get a US retailer exclusive

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:39 PM)

Alright, I managed to identify him. The 2007 voyager class that was apparently exclusive to sam's club.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 04:20 PM)

Well, that was a nice surprise. Me nephew (the 10 year old.) just gave me an optimus prime that's minorly older than he is.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 10:25 AM)

Nah, even better. He'll be a memory of the mission briefing. Just a voice over. Four different figures in the toyline, but not actually in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (13 July 2018 - 10:06 AM)

I am 110% sure that Optimus will show up, even as a transmission or something. At least maybe we can get a cybertronian form this time.

@  Pennpenn : (13 July 2018 - 09:55 AM)

At least one Optimus sodding Prime.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 July 2018 - 06:57 AM)

Same way as always: completely unrelated figures and models that weren't even in the movie.

@  unluckiness : (12 July 2018 - 11:47 PM)

I think that's a given, though, given the small number of transformers in Bee Movie, I wonder how they'll fill the toyline

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 July 2018 - 02:07 PM)

Yeah. I'm hoping with the new film, we might get something closer to the deluxe range

@  NotVeryKnightly : (12 July 2018 - 01:20 PM)

Isn't the Masterpiece the only recent VW G1-looking Bee?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:02 AM)

Especially when they are questioned directly and respond by dodging the question.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 July 2018 - 11:01 AM)

Watching hypocrites parade their high ground is equally amusing and cringeworthy.

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.

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.

Writer of Terminator, writing RoboCop. Does that mean... maybe somewhere down the line?

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.
