@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:52 AM)

The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

Anyone here reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City?

Remember the Noid? He steals pizzas!

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

@  Echowarrior : (15 January 2019 - 11:03 PM)

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2019 - 08:49 AM)

@  Xellos : (15 January 2019 - 06:22 AM)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 02:07 AM)

Is Flatland an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (14 January 2019 - 11:16 PM)

@Xellos Every time I see you post, I picture Xellos' infuriating smug grin and finger waggling with the "sore wa hi*mi*tsu*desu <3"

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

Astronaut gets shot through a wornhole and ends up on a living starship full of escaped alien prisoners.

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

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"

 

"Oomiak fight like Bear!"

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.
