Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Batman Mask of the Phantasm  - November 12th

 

 

Superman 1978 - November 25th / 27th / Dec 3rd

 

 

Fathom Events is bringing these back to select theaters. Superman will be shown with one of the classic Fleischer animated shorts "The Mechanical Monsters."

 

I missed out on Phantasm in its original run and I wasn't born yet for Superman (a lame excuse, I know!) Already have my tickets ordered. Both of these films are great and I'm excited about getting to see them in a theater. I can confidently say it will be the best Superman film I've ever seen on the big screen. :D

Hey, only the best Batman and Superman movies ever made.


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.

Whoa hey, I've got nothing against Superman, he's awesome. But he never got a theatrically-released animated film that was produced by Bruce Timm, Paul Dini and Alan Burnett.

The original Superman movie is still the best one. It might be somewhat campy by today's standards, but its still the best live action interpretation of him.

Return of the Joker is better. But that needs a lot of context.

I'll repeat the story I say before about Phantasm but I hated the ending song with Tia Carrerespelling before because I thought it didn't fit the superhero tone. Then years later, after love and life and stuff, I get it now and love it.

And I never knew Tia Carrere sang a song for this. Mind. Blown. Dunno how I missed that. I loved her singing in Wayne's World, her cover of Ballroom Blitz blows the original out of the water.

So, a little late with a comment, but I did go and see it with one of my brothers. It was playing in a really nice place with spacious rows, recliner seating, reserved seats. The film didn't seem to quite take advantage of the sound system and at times some of the scenes were briefly blurry. Maybe that was just this location, although it's recently renovated and beefed up. I don't remember any weird visual stuff like that whenever I watched it at home on DVD. Still, it was a blast to see it in a bonafide theater even with the hiccups.

 

Easily one of the best Batman movies, it's got killer performances and some real heart & soul. Got me right in the feels when Bruce was pleading at his parents' grave and even at its brisk runtime the relationship between him and Andrea felt real. What a powerhouse performance by Mark Hamill. For many they will think of him first as Luke Skywalker - I will think of him as The Joker. Easily the best Mark Hamill movie in theaters in the last several years. The Nausicaa showing was a close second. :p

 

Got my tickets for Superman on the 25th pre-ordered. It's also showing on the 27th and the 3rd of December if any are interested in that one.

The theater I saw it at was really nice too. Alas, the showing was mucked up on the technical end - they started playing the film a few minutes in, right before the party at Wayne Manor. Good time overall though.

Saw both of these and had a great time. It's funny with Superman...I've seen the extended cut so many times that it's become the definitive version in my head. Every time one of those scenes was missing from this showing, I had to stop myself from thinking, "Aw, what are they doing, they butchered it!"

 

To this day, I can't remember how or why I missed Phantasm during its original run. I was 13 when it came out, how the hell was I not able to scrape together $8 or whatever to go see it? I bought the novelization, and that probably cost more than a movie ticket back then!

I remember the Phantasm was playing for all of 1 week around here when it was originally released (if at all).  As we wanted to go see it during the second week and there were no showings.
