I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

I was pretty excited about this until I saw the January release date. Isn't that where studios send movies off to die a cold, miserable death? :doh
 
I still haven't seen Split, but that's a dynamite trio and I absolutely loooooooved Unbreakable so good or bad I'm seeing this.

The whole idea of "dead zones" is kind of an antiquated idea.  If the quality is there, it will likely find an audience and success.  Besides, January is largely ignored by that mentality, meaning Glass might got the most exposure for the month.

 

Also:

WAY more hype than for anything DC is apt to fart out for a while...

So two things. ONE. Im very hype. I loved Unbreakable and while I havent seen Split yet, Ive only heard good things.

But TWO...this is Modern Shyamalan were talking about.

So Im cautiously hype.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

huh I didn't even know Split existed... So I guess I need to watch that. I loved Unbreakable and have been looking forward to this thinking it was a direct sequel and not part 3.

Yeah, February is typically pretty "dead" too, but Deadpool 1 and Black Panther were able to milk it pretty damn well without any competition.

 

If it is a good movie, sometimes it is better to come out at those times.

January might be playing it smart in a market dominated by super hero films.

 

Regardless, I'm excited.

Press edit on the first post, then choose "use full editor". Or use the "edit" button to open a new tab. There should be a title bar.

I think.

I mean...I liked Unbreakable fine.  I was intrigued by Split being a surprise sequel.  But is there any reason to think this movie will be good?  I mean...certainly not in the totally empty trailer, but maybe there is some reason somewhere else?

Well, it's got McAvoy, Jackson, and Willis...three really good actors attached to the project and two of them who have been interested in a direct follow up of Unbreakable for 18 years. Not saying it couldn't be bad (I see the Shyamalan twist of this film already from the trailer), but it's got the talent not to be. The fact that this winding path of production has resulted in an accidental superhero shared universe in which our first real super power fight happens in the third installment also makes it stand out from the pack.

Exactly. That was the whole point to Unbreakable. Glass operated off the idea that if he's so brittle, then obviously there's someone out there who is nigh indestructible. It's what lead him to cause all those horrific accidents that ultimately lead him to Willis' character.

 

While Glass' condition is medically known, Willis' condition wasn't. Even Willis' character wasn't aware of the possibility, despite having a lifetime of experiences prior to meeting Glass (Including a major auto accident where he ripped off a car door). Same with The Horde (McAvoy's character - I wikied it). His multiple personalities are a known, medically accepted condition. The fact one of those personalities turns him into a super powered monster wasn't.

 

It's internally consistent logic for the setting, that yes make Glass a super individual for this setting. Glass has never shied away from the fact he's a Villain. Says so right in the trailer to the Beast "Sounds like the bad guys teaming up."

 

Samuel L. Jackson's Mr. Glass is one of the most compelling super villains that has never been put to comic format. So yeah, he belongs in that group - especially since it was Willis' interactions with him that pulled Willis into the "delusion".

What a supervillain is is a little hazy.  If they do crimes always involving riddles or they are an alien monster with eyebeams it seems really clear.  Mr Glass is just a mass criminal.  Was Osama bin Laden a supervillain?  Nicholas Cruz?

 

What is Glass' delusion?  He really made train crashes and stuff.  If that makes you a supervillain, he isn't having a delusion of being a supervillain.

Glass' delusion was that he HAD to have an opposite - someone who never broke - that lead him to kill all those people. Heck, he's likely the psychiatrist's "alpha patient", since Glass has been committed to a asylum since his incarceration.

 

As for being brittle not making one super powered...neither does being rich. Didn't stop Obadiah Stane or Lex Luthor from being accepted into that club.
