Count Zero?

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 February 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Oh boy, here we go.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

A good and proper KOTOR trilogy would be awesome. 

 

1. Young Jedi rebels against the council and leads his friends into a war to stop the Mandalorians. Epic battles, on space and ground, followed with the finale at Malachor 5.

2. Revan and Malak return with an armada and declare war on a weak republic. a war rages with revan being betrayed by malak as Jedi board his ship. battle ends with Jedi fleeing an exploding ship

3. Young jedi is trained in the ways of the force with his master Bastila Shan, fighting to stop the Malak and his Sith armada. Eventually assembling a crew with HK47, Canderous, and Mission Vao. Finding the Star Forge, our band of heroes board it. After a final battle our Young Jedi defeats Malak, is reveled to be Revan, but he still Destroys the Star Forge. 


Starring: Wedge "living participation trophy" Antilles!

 

He is only that way in the films. And even there, he was in the core of the Deathstar 2 destroying it along with Lando. Not too mention he eluded Darth Vader in a space fight as well as took out ATATs on Hoth.  Wedge, is, Awesome!

I love Wedge.  I read all the Rogue Squadron books, thats why I suggested that as an idea.  Its Star Wars, but its not Jedi.

The Rogue Squadron series just might be my favorite part of the old EU. Those books are great. I might have to try to dig them out from wherever I stashed all my Legacy books once I'm done with the Witcher series.

Wedge is the best pilot in the galaxy. Better than Luke. He did everything he did without the Force backing him up.

KOTOR would be awful.

Your average normie has never heard of it and would be turned off by yet another prequel. The superfans have been so in thrall to it that they would be livid at ANY deviation from the story.

I would say that Game of Thrones shows that you can have your plot twists out there for the hardcore fans and still have it be shocking for everyone else. Red Wedding anyone?

I don't think Disney is going to adapt anything and at this point I don't think they should.

Tag & Bink Disney+ series, please.

But new. Not a comic adaptation. The comic's premise was sometimes better than its execution.

I still feel like Rogue Squadron would work better as an animated follow-up to Rebels than a movie trilogy.

Inevitably (per ESB), Luke was involved, so animation would get around the need to recast him (and all the other movie-era characters). And Rogue Squadron's adventures would play better in a character-driven episodic format than they would as three two-hour blockbusters seen years apart.

Plus Rebels went out of its way to set up Wedge and Hobbie.

I'm down with that.  Plus you can do a lot by getting around the fact that Dennis Lawson is old as hell now and doesn't do much acting.  Well, unlike his newphew who's been in a few small things.

 

Ironbite-also animated means you can do some pretty gnarly space dog fights.

I'd also be down for a Tag & Bink series as well, the scout troopers at the beginning of The Mandalorian's season finale gave me Tag & Bink vibes and I was disappointed when they were killed (despite them beating on The Child).

Did I miss this getting posted? Test footage from a live action star wats project has leaked.

https://www.google.c...-1841389155/amp

Now I know it's test footage, proof of concept stuff, but I'm REALLY glad, this project didn't take off, it all seems so awful.
I finally got rid of that big white box.
