(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

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.

So I just watched this tonight.

 

*sighs* It's not what I hoped for. It's not a terrible movie, but it's not what this series deserved.

 

Spoiler

 

Other then that, there are some really nice jokes and call backs to the series, but they never go as far as they should have in my opinion. Very disappointing.

So...wait.

 

A direct-to-video "finale" for the 13 Ghosts of Scooby Doo, at a time where the lion's share of direct-to-video Scooby Doo properties actually do involve the gang fighting the forces of the supernatural, goes back to the traditional formula? For the one show of the franchise that was unabashedly about the supernatural?

 

I already had a bad feeling about it when Fred and Velma were there, but man talk about missing the point entirely. Did they even make reference to Flim Flam?

Velma is... disapointingly at her Velma-est here. Fred... almost has a good story arc, but like the rest of the movie it gets confused and kinda terrible by the end. And yes Flim Flam is in here as is Lotso Luck Joy Juice.

No a Monkey's Paw wish with Pirates of Dark Water would be a big screen adaption written by Bruce Timm, produced by Michael Bay, directed by Uwe Boll, and edited by Alexander Berner.

Yeah, after seeing it, I have to agree.  They promised us a true ending to the 13 Ghosts series, and we basically got a let-down.  Something tells me whoever was involved with this movie either never saw the 13 Ghosts of Scooby-Doo or was plagued those meddling Warner Bros. executives who want to keep a certain part of the Scooby fan base happy.

 

Either way, Warner Bros. had one job, and they messed up.  Hopefully, the next DTV movies makes up for this abomination.

The sad thing is, I believe this movie was made because according to what I'm seeing. This year is Scooby Doo's 50th anniversary.

 

Not only did we get this movie, but in the wiki I keep seeing a KISS crossover sequel possibly coming. (It's not there now, but it pops in and out)

 

However I also see a movie titled "Return to Zombie Island"

 

Normally I'd be hyped, but given how disappointing this movie turned out, I honestly am afraid of what they'll give us.

There is no point in returning to that island as the curse was lifted, its now just a normal abandoned plantation farm, filled with stray cats, I think they should return to the Ghoul School, after all Shaggy and Scobby were teachers there for a little while.

The film stated the Zombies were the "Good guys!" and also the victims of those who envoked the Cat God power and had to feed upon life force to live and upon the death of those under the curse, the zombies souls were free to move on as justice had been served to those people which pretty much as desent concusion to the story, but if they are making a sequel, its likely to simply capilize on the Walking Dead crazy among some adults, not that I've seen any of Walking dead, its not really attracting my attention.
