Do you need a criminal lawyer or a criminal, lawyer.

I don't suppose the allspark has any criminal lawyers from Georgia. ;P

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 06:22 PM)

That's so corny.

@  Shrug : (16 July 2019 - 06:07 PM)

It's absurd how happy I am that a post of mine made the front page of Reddit.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Aww, shucks.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:45 PM)

Not till I taste the corn

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 05:43 PM)

You guys aren't being very nice. You're supposed to tell me I did "good, really good!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 July 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Just don't go beyond the rows.

@  Patch : (16 July 2019 - 05:39 PM)

It's techno-organic corn

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

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.

Reminder - Mask of the Phantasm - TOMORROW!

 

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.
