x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

...okay, there's so much to enjoy about this, but I have a very hard time hearing Maurice LaMarche as Vincent Van Ghoul. He sounds too much like the Brain in that clip for me.

 

Maurice LaMarche is a lot of wonderful things but there will only ever be ONE Vincent Price.

 

 

I knew the minute I said he "did a passable job," I knew that some would disagree.

The point is, we can't possibly get Vincent Price to do it. He's gone. If we HAVE to have a substitute, this guy seems as up to the task as anyone.

Yeah, like... something something Orson Welles, right? 

 

Given that is is a certainty that Vincent Price won't accept the gig, there aren't a lot of names higher on the wish list when it comes to Vincent Price substitutes.

 

Also you can hardly go wrong with any Scooby show. I've been in love with the franchise since like day 1, and basically everything they've done has had at least some merit. Initially I steered clear of Be Cool because uuuuuugly, but eventually I gave it a chance and it really won me over. It's hilarious. 

 

But I doubt that Mystery Inc will ever be topped.

I am SO stoked for this, Back in the day this was my favorite Scooby Doo series. 

I turned off the Trailer when I saw Vincent Van Ghoul apear in the crystal ball, "I don't need to see any more, I'm Sold... I'M SOLD!!!"

 

I dug out my DVD set of the series and started watching episodes last night, A lot of the episodes I havent seen since they aired.

Does look pretty cool as a conclusion to that series. Sadly I think my parents shied us away from that series due to the demons and occult stuff involved :D I'll have to find a way to watch it.

Not to Hijack the thread but I was on Wikipedia looking info up on this and other Scoooby series when a new "Scooby Doo and Guess Who?" series popped up. Sounds like a new version of the old "New Scooby Doo Movies" formula bringing in a guest star each episode. Got the old favorite like Batman (credited as Kevin Conroy this time :love), as well as fellow JL members Flash, Wonder Woman. Sherlock Holmes, and celebity stars like Sia, Mark Hamil, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Bill Nye and some others. But the one that got me was Steve Urkel? What deal with the devil did they offer Jaleel to do this?

Yeah 13 Ghosts was... not as cool as I thought it was when I was a kid. I convinced myself it was cool because it was a limited series with a distinct concept from other Scooby shows. But in hindsight? Nah I just liked the wicked-cool intro. BUT STILL, while it's not a particularly good cartoon it was still a distinct Scooby series so I'm glad there's a movie using ideas from it.
Woooo!

I wonder if they'll explain where Fred and Velma were during that time.

Incidentally, how many times have they "finally encountered real ghosts" now?

The 80's was when they were trying to do something different with a stale formula. So we got stuff with real creatures. 13 ghosts, Reluctant Werewolf, Ghoul School, and Boo Brothers all from the 'Red Shirt' era (referring to Shaggy not wearing green) was stuff with them  encountering actualy ghosts, monsters, and such. Rather then the 476th guy in a mask. Which the concept also got revisited later on in the late 90's with Zombie Island, Witch's Ghost, and Alien Invaders also all having some real Supernatural creatures in them.

Zombie Island and Witches Ghost is still probably the best Scooby we have gotten. I love Mystery Inc. but those two movies were good all around where the art style of Mystery Inc. was just a tad off.

I loved 13 Ghosts when it aired, but truth be told it hasn't aged at all well.  Of the new movies I think Zombie Island is the best-but Mystery Inc. tops all of it, although you are correct, the art style...takes some getting used to.  So much so that I didn't watch when it first aired; I found out the insanity they were doing when I caught one of the final episodes later and had to go back to see how they got from Point A to Point square root of negative Pi.

Zombie island is my favourte, what makes it good, is the songs that play, of course there is only one king to those songs:

The execution of said spoiler'd character was quite clearly implied, just happening off screen, because even with what they did get away doing on that show, visibly murdering an established semi-regular probably would have been frowned upon.
