Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

...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.
