Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:45 AM)

You know, this election is what has finally broken me of any confidence at any point of pre-polling data. I mean, it's always been sketchy, but this is just... aaaargh!

@  Pennpenn : (18 May 2019 - 06:08 AM)

I was going to make an Auspol election thread in P&R, but the outcome so far has made me feel physically ill.

I have heard that, it's rather disappointing. Ah, maybe they'll just leech each others stores of "awful racist vote" and not go anywhere.

So I guess I shouldn't try to tie in The Room.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 May 2019 - 02:29 PM)

I was just talking cheesy in a dated filmmaking sense, not mind-bogglingly god-awful.

@  Sabrblade : (16 May 2019 - 11:49 AM)

Well, certainly The Last Airbender is worse at being a Superman movie.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 May 2019 - 11:31 AM)

Is that better or worse than The Last Airbender? I mean, they're both terrible, but....

@  RichardT1977 : (16 May 2019 - 09:28 AM)

And the worst Superman movie is "Dragonball: Evolution".

@  Paladin : (16 May 2019 - 08:01 AM)

the best Superman movie is "The Iron Giant." You cannot convince me otherwise.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 10:16 PM)

At least even in the first Christopher Reeve movie, when he caught Lois that first time, the background kept scrolling down for a second to indicate it wasn't a sudden stop.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 10:10 PM)

I guess you had to have been there. I did like the beginning a lot, though; the stuff on Krypton and in Smallville. The movie just got so cheesy once it got to Metropolis, though, it's kind of painful

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 May 2019 - 06:25 PM)

The performances, the cinematography, the significance of a comic book adaptation being treated like a real movie. Silly stuff like that. :)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 05:17 PM)

Yeah, I've never really understood what people loved so much about it. Other than the score, of course, which was one of Williams' finest

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

and it's not even the dumbest part in that movie.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 May 2019 - 03:16 PM)

Flying Lois around was fine; it was all the Can You Read My Mind nonsense that ruined the scene

@  Sabrblade : (15 May 2019 - 12:08 PM)

The recent Shazam! movie had Billy bumbling his way through learning his powers. But all or most of it was genuinely funny.

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:27 AM)

But yeah, in retrospect it makes me cringe the way he caught and carried the helicopter in his public debut in the first film...

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

(she wasn't in III long enough to be flown around)

@  RichardT1977 : (15 May 2019 - 11:25 AM)

You mean the Donner movie, the Donner/Lester movie, and The Quest for Peace (for which I don't know the director)?

@  unluckiness : (15 May 2019 - 11:09 AM)

At least he didn't try to fly lois around like in the Donner movies.

@  Cybersnark : (15 May 2019 - 10:45 AM)

My favourite is still from the first episode of the 90s Superman animated series, where Clark initially tries to catch the falling plane by its tail... which snaps off in his hands because physics doesn't work that way.

@  MEDdMI : (15 May 2019 - 09:46 AM)

I think it'd be boring if a hero could use their powers perfectly right off the bat and not have any unforseen consequences (though I also don't keep up with a lot of superhero stuff, so not familiar with those scenes)

@  Dekafox : (15 May 2019 - 09:23 AM)

Overseas, Kamen Rider Gaim did something similar after Kouta(the main character) got his transformation belt. He tried to do a whole bunch of mundane things with it cause he thought it'd make him better at them and they all go horribly wrong.

@  Paladin : (15 May 2019 - 08:59 AM)

superspeed causes enormous friction on fabric. the 1990 Flash had the same issue and it was mentioned in "The Incredibles" too...

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:45 AM)

Arrow didn't have one (though Oliver got hurt a lot in flashbacks), Supergirl already had her powers, LoT gang also already had their powers mostly and in Black Lightning discovering your powers seems to be more associated with emotional trauma than anything comedic

@  fourteenwings : (15 May 2019 - 08:43 AM)

In the Arrowverse shows... I guess The Flash accidentally ran so fast he shredded his clothes? (totally not a chance to showcase Grant Gustin's "I'm not Glee kid anymore!" physique)

Is it a remaster of the original theatrical release, or just the cropped version that was on the Shoutfactory DVDs?

Eh? According to TFWiki the theatrical widescreen version is the cropped one.

And Shout's website says their release included both widescreen and full frame versions.

Of course this would air in the same month as the most overhyped DBZ movie. I swear, this coincidence just gives me more snark ammo.

It's not the old non-canon Broly movie from DBZ. It's a new one, canon to DB Super.

I guess I'm one of those "some fans" and specifically thought those crop comparisons were only about the widescreen cut on the Shoutfactory release, and not about the theatrical version itself. And yes, I didn't say anything about Shout not having both versions.

You could say the same hugging thing about this one, 'cause it's corresponding to the Bumblebee movie that's coming out in a few months!

Ah, the first movie that I can remember seeing in theaters. I am so going to be there.

Though hopefully it will be in a decent distribution of theaters. Sometimes the fathom event stuff does not have showings anywhere near me.

My theater in Clarksville is good about Fathom showings; most of what I wanted to see they shown (except the Encore showings of 'Star Trek II') so I'm confident it will be near me. 

 

now to wait until August 3rd to find out, then I can blast on facebook and start bugging people to go with me.

Holy jive! I was born in '87 so I missed its very brief run, but I grew up watching TF:TM and never stopped loving it. The soundtrack is the first CD I ever bought and I have never play it in my cars because I'm pretty sure by the time Dare ended I'd be involved in a high speed chase on the highway.

 

So I've been wanting to see this in a theater since I was a kid. My brother and I once in a while rent a little indie theater for private screenings and this is on The List, which I figured that was the only way it was ever going to happen. Who knew the Bayformers would be good for something other than drink coasters? Maybe Bay can take a crack at GI Joe so I can get to see Sgt. Slaughter kick Nemesis Enforcer's ass all over the big screen.

 

Anyway, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go check and see if Gal Gadot is waiting in my driveway with a briefcase full of money, because apparently sometimes dreams do come true.

Terrible movie.

Those poor little tykes who wanted to see the characters from that silly cartoon in a film adventure were lured into a movie theatre where their Favorites like Optimus Prime, Ironhide and Starscream were slaughtered ruthlessly in the first twenty minutes. All because those nasty venom spewing writers and producers could work with Hollywood names like Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Orson Wells, Robert stack and Eric idle.

Yeah but would we still be here talking about all this if it wasn't for the movie in the first place? Maybe TF fandom would be as big as... M.A.S.K. or something like that? The movie was definitely *memorable* if nothing else -- due mostly to the radical change in setting and tone stemming from that desire to sell new toys.
