I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

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!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

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.

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!)

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

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.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

I dunno.  I kinda hate the idea of live action remakes, but I will say that Lion King and Aladdin might be the only two I'd be willing to see.

 

Although... Aladdin without Robin Williams?  Is that... like... can they even do that?

Well I was thinking of Aladdin the movie, in specific.

 

But, I guess.  Never saw the cartoon, though people say it was good.  But, you know, they only didn't have him for Return of Jafar because he refused to do it, not because they didn't want him.  As soon as he agreed for the third film, he was right back in.  The man was unquestionably unique and trying to replace him in a film that featured him so heavily is going to be a difficult task.

Not so sure about a super realistic CG Lion King movie. I loved the Broadway musical, with the masks and puppetry representing the animals, that was really cool.

The reason he refused, is becuase the higher ups as Disney at the time broke contract, and made a massive deal about Genie; which royally pissed Robin off. He only came back for the third, after change in management went out of their way to make it up to him. But even now there are still limits to what Disney can use of his work.

This doesn't surprise me, but it does kinda irritate me.

I loved the originals. I even remember watching Lion King for the very first time in the theatre. Total darkness as you begin to hear animals stirring and then bam! Circle of Life starts out and...that whole thing was amazing. And the stampede scene. You have not seen the stampede scene unless you've seen it in the theatre.

So believe me, I have nothing but love for these movies.

Which is why I wish they would leave well enough alone? Why do they feel like they have to do live action versions of all of their cartoon movies? The originals were fine as they were. Better than fine. They're classics! They don't need improved upon!

Has Disney really just lost all sense of imagination and now all they can do are live action remakes of cartoon movies they've already made? It's hugging lazy as hell!

Both of those were "Fake Robin Williams" though.

 

This is going to be something completely different.

 

But even now there are still limits to what Disney can use of his work.

 

I forget exactly where I read/heard this but I think they can't use anything until 20 years after his death.

It really is like a repeat of that age of direct-to-video sequels. Except it's not even new stories and everyone seems to be eating it up.

 

 

 

I once joked on another site about how Disney was gonna do live-action remakes of all these dumb forgotten films, and sure enough someone responds with links announcing just about my entire list.

It may be lazy but it's banking high on nostalgia and love for the originals like all have done so far and while most have been skippable, some have actually made the jump to live action well. I'll admit the Jungle Book was one of their better adaptions so far, and that prompted the jump to Lion King here with it's success

 

But I'll admit I wish Disney could at least lay off the animated classics already. They look impressive but most times nostalgia of the original will overrule the new one. Or Emma Watson just can't sing.

 

Anyone else miss the days when Disney would pump out random kids movies with no real cgi with fun concepts and a little less care for being PC. I kinda want to watch Heavyweights, Blank Check, or something really old school like "The Island at the Top of the World"

That trailer is pretty spectacular. I wasn't super keen for this but I guess now I am.

I'm not terribly distressed about the absence of Be Prepared. TLK is one of Disney's great animated features, but it's not one of Disney's great soundtracks.
