Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

The animation does a lot of nice things that no one would complain about them not doing.

 

Such as? Because I can't see it.

 

I tried to watch the first episode and the whole 8fps animation is ruining the entire experience for me. Especially where they pick and choose where to up the frame rate in action scenes. Makes it look like a low-cost web series. It just looks like they didn't want to pay for tween animations.

 

Also the two Game of Thrones references in the first 10 minutes made me roll my eyes. I really expected more from this creative team.

I've only had time for the first episode so far, but it's a bit disappointingly paint-by-numbers YA fantasy.  Two early-teens characters on opposites sides, each is a misfit who has trouble living up to the legacy they're forced into, there's a cute younger sibling and a pet, an early crush who will probably end up as an enemy and an early enemy who will probably end up as a crush, slightly older kids trying too hard to Be Adults, etc.  Oh, and while "humans are evil practitioners of Dark Magic" is hammered home in the intro dump, it's clear that both teenaged protagonists will have "the adults are wrong and perpetuating evil on both sides" as something that brings them together.

 

Can it still be good?  Yeah.  But it's not an auspicious start, probably should have just called eps 1-2 a single first episode so that something could happen in "episode one" other than the march of the YA lit cilches.

Well, my son asked why we weren't watching it after school yesterday, so I watched a few more.

 

The animation, if anything, gets worse after the first two episodes, but it is kinda growing on me. The Aunt is the first character that I actually want to know more about, and I'm hoping that the world opens up more as they travel East. My son (5 years-old) likes it a lot, so we'll at least finish out the season.


Yep.

Just finished the 9 episodes. Like others have said, the frame rate was pretty bad in at least the first two episodes, but the story's so good that I just had to keep going.

 

Though, two other things bugged me a bit.

And yeah, the frame-rate was terrible. What's the point of including sign-language when you can't actually animate the signing?

I'm catching up and watched up to ep 4. (I should be watching She-Ra or Castlevania 2 actually)

Just hoping Claudia isn't really evil but she's pretty on the side of her dad. Hope her dad isn't all the way evil too but he should have smart enough not to say the princes are dead if he didn't know for sure.

Haven't read the stuff above because I might read something spoilery but is the lady actually doing proper sign language?

The trio of kids are just ok for me. Not super wow yet.

Done with 5-7.

5 was filler, bleh. Sure, there was a fish monster but eh.

6 was great. I liked all the fuss with the ice and the weeeeeird Claudia and brother orders. Man, bad dad.

7 was good too. If sun blade guy didn't have a mustache, he would have joined their team. (Cuz mustache makes you deeeevious. Or cowardly.). Also had a cutest lame puppy ever.

Edit - done with everything.

7 was good with the slug thing but they were lucky it actually had eyes. If it didn't, the first attack wouldn't have worked. Also, the lightning should have been enough. The tiny slugs coming out was grooooooss though.

8 final episode. Lotsa stuff. Ezren talks to animals? This should have been a bigger deal. I was floored by the puppy reveal. I thought the lady switched puppies, just gave the girl a new puppy but she couldn't tell the difference. The real deal though, whoa, that's too much. Also, the spider was actually blowing air. It can make sounds too and sounds have force. So I'd say the spider was dangerous since it CAN move things. Still dangerous.

The hatching was obvious c'mon. But now Callum has no battery left. What now?

When Asmodeus whatever cuz the cord, did the other bindings break too?

Also Claudia farting turned me off on her. Geez, did they really have to do that? She was awesome and now, blurgh.

Hope wolf girl sticks around.

Disappointingly, it doesn't look like they tried to make the animation smoother. I can deal with it, but I do wish they'd just spend more time and budget on getting that to a higher quality.

 

As it is I'm going to assume there are many who are skipping this show because of that issue. :/

I'll watch for the story, the first season was pretty good but I am guessing that season 2 was in the works along with season 1, they just spilt it up into 2 13 ep blocks thou the first couple of eps were turned into a mini movie.

The animation is better than some other animation, example, Cyberverse, it feels cheep and lazy, more so than Machinmina's TF series
