We named the dog "Indiana".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:25 PM)

Happy 30 years to Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Truly they are the compleat package.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 May 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Made from the metallized ashes of their previous enemies.

@  MEDdMI : (24 May 2019 - 07:40 AM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

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

@  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...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

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.
