Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

Question, is anyone actually hyped/excited for Ep9?

 

It's a tossup what gets the bigger meh from me between Episode IX and Endgame. The question though gets me to wondering what's coming up that does get me excited. And looking ahead, I see... nothing. Nothing I see releasing this year gets me excited. Nothing I can think of coming after this year gets me excited. I'm sad now.

 

Interestingly, looking at the Rotten Tomatoes list of upcoming movies reveals they still haven't removed Justice League Part 2 from their list. I've now also had my anger at how badly WB has botched the DCEU renewed.

 

At least there's Netflix.

I'm super excited for IX. I'm just not thinking about it yet cause Endgame comes first. One awesome super exciting Geek Epic conclusion at a time.

-ZacWilliam, but once that's past, I loved Force Awakens lots and Last Jedi was even better. Amazing stuff. Can't wait to see how it all ends.

I feel like there will be some parts of this film I really like, and some parts of this film I won't like.

I say that because its been my general view on the Sequels, I like them but I get the feeling they could be better.

Here's a problem with IX it's the last movie in a trilogy.  That's supposed to be the end.  Answer all the questions and finish things off but it feels like The Last Jedi did that so what is supposed to happen in IX.

The Phantom Menace turns 20 in a couple of months.

How excited were you when you heard that the Phantom Menace was coming out? Did you camp out in front of the theater? What did you think when you finished watching it in the theater?

I'll be very excited for IX when we get closer. First I've got Endgame and GOT.

(Between those and IDW ending, it really has been a season of pruning a lot of interests. I read all of the Expanse books, watched all of Rick & Morty and The Americans. Am I supposed to pretend to care about the DCCU's hints of Darkseid? Cos I don't....)

I was 10 or so when Phantom Menace came out, which was like the perfect age to be. Old enough to have seen the originals (both pre and post Special Edition) but young enough to be rather forgiving of the prequels' flaws. I can only imagine how thing would've been if I were just a few years older...


IX I have no interest in, apart from hearing how JJ deals with what TLJ did. I mean how do you wrap up a trilogy (much less a nine film saga) when the penultimate episode basically tosses out any potential plot threads?

That's just one of the many, many, many problems that film has, its plainly obvious that the writer didn't have a clue what they were doing and it shows in the final product!

Not at all.  I thought Force Awakens was a disaster, and Last Jedi obliterated any chance to redeem the story for me, so I've written off the franchise.

I'm terribly afraid that IX is going to backtrack on the great things that happened in TLJ.

 

I'm also afraid that the story is going to be contorted around the repurposed Carrie Fisher footage.

How excited were you when you heard that the Phantom Menace was coming out? Did you camp out in front of the theater? What did you think when you finished watching it in the theater?

 

We lied to ourselves for a while.  It wasn't until it came out on home video 6 months later that we began to realize how awful it actually was.  But new Star Wars anything was a huge deal back then.  It wasn't just a given there would be a new movie every year, so it was a special event.  The hype was beyond anything before.

I liked it fine originally, but revisited it recently and in retrospect the Shadows of the Empire novel was terrible. Absolute garbage. Toys were neat for the era. Video Game had some very cool bits on Hoth but not much after that. The Main story in the novel though is worse than the worst of the Prequels.

Now "Knights of the Old Republic" is a video game with an Awesome story. It's easily up there with Empire and Last Jedi as some of the best Star Wars storytelling anywhere ever.

-ZacWilliam, hopefully someday it gets remastered.

Man so many down on the sequel trilogy. I get that the movies are polarizing but are they really the worst that's come out? I still think the prequels are still there for me.
