"Here's a little---whatever. A little thing. A disclosure. An insight. Revisionism---I've always been fascinated by it. By the idea of a writer going back and altering things. Make no mistake: an edit is a profoundly aggressive act. As Froid once said, we grieve for the murdered word. If you want to get the measure of an author, don't look at what they've left on the page.... look at what they've taken away." -- Rung (MTMTE #28)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

With the amount of CGI showcased in the trailer alone I'm left wondering why even bother with live action shots at all? I'd probably be a lot more forgiving of the film if it were a full on CG remake. As it stands, I am forcibly reminded of the Spy Kids movies.

 

You can definitely tell Disney's CG "A Team" was working on the Lion King instead.

Part of me thinks it's unfinished CGI - because really, there's no other reasonable excuse.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Wow... I was kind of expecting a CG Genie that Will Smith would voice.  Like, might vaguely resemble him, but it would have to be a bit cartoonish for it not to fall into the awful uncanny valley when he's doing Genie magic.

 

But no.  It's just Will Smith with CG Blue and pointy ears.

 

That's... disappointing on a whole new level.

 

Reminds me of the whole debacle with Robin Williams trying to make Disney not use him to sell the movie (which resulted in him refusing to return for the second movie) and makes me wonder if the Genie in the original would have been basically an animated Robin Williams had he not been so insistent.

 

I definitely miss the Al Hirschfeld inspired visual style, but they were never going to do that in live action.  Could have done it with the Genie, but.... yeah, that's obviously not happening.

Everything about this makes me wish it bombs hard just so that no more of them gets made. 

 

The cave is a static hunk of rock, Jafar is boring when he was the second most memorable character and he sounds bored to be in this movie, and lol genie. Everything Will Smith touches nowadays turns to crap.

Jafar looks (and sounds) like a sabotage attempt. Put the Disney Renaissance films down and back away slowly.

They learned the wrong lesson from the recent Jungle Book remake. They should have done other mid-tier films, like the Aristocats or the Rescuers. You cannot remake some of the most beloved family films ever.

We saw some early footage at CinemaCon last year, specifically segments from "One Jump Ahead" and "Prince Ali" that looked much better than what they've show so far. The film does have a very specific, Bollywood-inspired look and I think that is what is throwing everyone off and is causing the cries of it looking "cheap", but from what I've seen it works in context.


Yep.

Why would they want to give it an indian aesthetic when Aladdin ostensibly takes place in the middle East?

Have you seen the animated film? In Disney's eyes, that's the same place.

Cinderella really is going to end up being the only decent installment of these recent live action remakes, isn't it?

 

 

Oh man, it looks just a little bit above the level of Once Upon A Time's Aladdin stuff. That's... not great.

Just from how this Jafar looks and sounds in this trailer alone, Once Upon a Time (both the normal and Wonderland versions) did their take on Jafar far better, even giving him a developed backstory that shows just how and why he became the thoroughly evil man that he is.

The animated film borrowed heavily from a movie called The Thief of Bagdad.. which was in the Middle East/West Africa.

 

The original story of Aladdin was Chinese.. so figure that one out LOL.
