Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

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.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

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
