@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (26 May 2019 - 07:12 PM)

Pleasant news.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, the rising stars are the Greens, especially in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:06 PM)

Also, a surprising number of voters showed up to the polls, all across the EU. Which is a good sign.

@  Nevermore : (26 May 2019 - 04:05 PM)

Soooo. Another election day is over. Less stressful than the last one, at least.

@  Nevermore : (25 May 2019 - 05:09 PM)

Oooookay, Babylon Berlin. That's gotta be Plot Convenient News Urgent Edition or something.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2019 - 12:03 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 11:50 AM)

A poodle, some clouds, and a giant drop of water

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 May 2019 - 05:53 AM)

Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

...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.
