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

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

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

@  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!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

It's also a way of getting some of the morally-grey "ends-justify-the-means" business of the Rebellion that we never get to see outside of the occasional RPG.

Also, more Cassian means more K-2S0.

The SW series was borked from the beginning you cant tell the good stories from the EU because most the original cast is to old for it to work and recasting the iconic characters is going to satisfy no one...

 

So you go Prequel or you now have to go ferther forward ...sigh

On one hand, none of the main RO characters (besides the droid) were engaging, so giving any of them a series seems a bit foolhardy. Especially if they're just totally nixing anything starring the likes of Boba Fett or Kenobi.

On the other hand, I'm all for more stories set between the Prequels and OT, especially if it's as bridge-gap-y as RO was. So I'll have to at least check out the first few episodes.

More K-2, yeah that could be cool. More moral ambiguity with with the "good guys". Yeah, no. Not interested in stories about 'this is a bad thing to do, but it must be done for the Greater Good™'.

With movie budget CGI.

 

"The show will cost roughly $100 million for 10 episodes, the New York Times reports."

 

ILM just formed a television devision two days ago, if that tells you how seriously they're taking these Disney+ limited series.

I'm the person who liked Rogue One just fine, and. Ehhh, I don't know. Why not Chirrut and Baze

Honestly Rogue One kinda felt to me like something that was originally made as like a 4-6 episode miniseries and then edited down into a movie. No way they'd do this but remaking it that way would be more interesting to me ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I wasn't fond of Rogue One as a Star Wars movie, but the Battle of Scarif was an amazing Star Wars movie.  One of my favorite Star Wars moments ever is when the rebel alliance pops out of hyperspace over Scarif.  I definitely got teary in the theater, on every viewing.  =)

 

Of course, a Cassian series will not be the Battle of Scarif, but the part of Rogue One I didn't care as much for.  I hope that they redeem Cassian a bit, and move away from the Draven/Cassian murder plots.  I don't need to see the rebels as the bad guys.  I am looking forward to seeing what it's about.  I have been wanting to see more of Enfys Nest, and I hope this is an opportunity to do that.

 

It could be unrelated, or mean nothing at all, but Ian McDiarmid just tweeted a single word with no context...

True.  Short of Anakin and Obi-Wan (prior to the prequel trilogy), because of where he got to.  I don't have interest in stuff from those others (and not Obi and Ani) anymore.

They can make me care about Cassian, I'm sure.  I wasn't really drawn into any of the characters in Rogue One.  I liked watching Vader and I liked listening to K2SO.  Cassian wasn't very interesting to me, but he was used in a pretty strange way.  He's introduced as a certain kind of character and then taken out of his element by a situation that spirals out of control. That CAN make a character more interesting if it plays well, but he wound up being upstaged.  If they write a spy story about a really good spy and throw in plenty of K2SO, it'll be fine.

 

What I liked most about Rogue One was the Rebel Base.  Give me more of that.  And I assume that we can get some more Bail Organa and Mon Mothma.  I don't think either of those actors are prohibitively expensive.

Oh no, a story starring one of the best received characters from Rogue One whose role probably means the inclusion of one of the other best received characters in the same movie, featuring the sort of thing that's rarely depicted in Star Wars but would have definitely been part of the Rebellion's activities, thus providing a valuable perspective that we wouldn't get otherwise from this franchise.

 

How terrible.


"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

We're talking about the movie franchise where the Empire's most elite soldiers were defeated by teddy bears with rocks and logs.

 

I don't really think gritty black ops agents enter into it.
