The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Now I wonder how many Transformers we can name with the fewest possible different names.

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 July 2020 - 06:18 PM)

"Prowl". There, that's at least fifteen.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Oky, just one question: If I were to say "Yes, I could", how could you be sure I'm not lying?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:08 PM)

i don't go into people's threads that have no relevance to my interests just to be an ass by telling them that their comments and opinions are of no value just because they have no personal interest to me.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

i think one of us is misunderstanding what the squawkbox is actually for.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

and what is wrong with that? you respond to me to lessen your own boredom.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

Or did you just think of another random question to lessen your boredom?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:04 PM)

Is this a survey?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Could you name 100 different Transformers without using the same name more than once, completely from memory?

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 04:12 PM)

It's on Netflix, if you're playing the app off the TV just use search to find it. I thought it had been delayed but found it with the search option.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 04:09 PM)

Is WFC in the UK yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

I sped the WFC trailers up on Youtube (1.25) and it actually helps.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 02:40 AM)

Never occured to me the Headmaster juniors were kids because their head toys were smaller then the engine Godmasters.

@  Telly : (29 July 2020 - 02:31 PM)

"becoming" obvious? its been obvious for years and years. its just more noticeable now thanks to social media

@  wonko the sane? : (29 July 2020 - 01:51 PM)

It's becoming readily obvious that there's a lot of people in the world whom are fundamentally unhappy and intent on making as many people as possible just like them.

@  repowers : (29 July 2020 - 07:46 AM)

Turns out he wants you to have an UNhappy day! HAHAHA! Such villainy!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 July 2020 - 04:56 AM)

Questioning them just makes them shout the same thing but louder until any reasonable person walks away in disgust. Then they claim that they won. There's nothing to analyze, it's just bullying.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

Especially since the words by our chancelor he was referring to ("I wish you a happy...") are pretty common.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

That "subliminal reverse speech" thing is particularly baffling. Does that mean anyone repeating those exact same words is inserting the same reverse speech by default? Or how does that work?

Watched the trailer and frankly, I do not like the look of Genie at all, he looks horrible, clearly those who wanted the Genie to be blue won but are likely regreting that train of thoughts! In all I am not impressed with this, everything I seen in regards to Aladdin says this movie will not capture the magic of the original and will fail badly due to a number of factors including political correctness, they should make the Genie a completely CGI character with someone who known for their comical talent as the voice, not an actor who more known for action roles. I think Disney's best live action hit of the year will likely be Lion King as I'm not impressed by Aladdin or Dumbo!

... please, please, let this be the one that kills the live-action Disney remakes.

 

I'm not strong enough to handle the prospects of a live-action Lilo and Stitch.

No, no, I need to see the garbage-tier animatronic Stitch puppet they come up with.  It's going to be fried gold.

 

They CGI'd a parrot, a monkey and an immobile tiger head rock. You think they're going to make practical effects for an alien genetic experiment?

There's yer problem.

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.

In this case, though, I believe the entire film is this hyper-realistic CGI, whereas Dinosaur was CG characters against a live-action background.

I just showed my Dad images of the original Genie followed up by the Will Smith verison and he said "He looks like a gone off verison of the Jolly Green Giant!"

So for those who aren’t willing to give it chance because ‘It’s not Robin Williams’ I offer you the mans own words

I'm not opposed to someone else taking on the role... but nothing I've ever seen Will Smith do has convinced me that he's well-suited to the type of humor that was Genie's shtick. The character would need to be changed significantly, and that I don't think I'll like.

 

But either way, the look of Genie doesn't bother me nearly as much as how cheap some of those scenes looked overall. Not the aesthetic I'd have chosen for this live-action remake... maybe Disney stretched themselves too thin with three of them in one year.

1) This Jafar sucks.
2) Everything looks cheap.
3) Genie is creeping me out.

I can accept someone else playing Genie, because what Robin Williams did will always be with us.

What I can't accept, is an ill-conceived, cheap-looking cash-grab.

I liked Dan Castellaneta's performance as Genie in the Aladdin TV series. I've no problem with someone who isn't Robin Williams playing Genie. My problem with this version of Genie is that his face just being Will Smith's real face grafted onto Genie's cartoonish head and body is utterly hideous.

 

And that Smith is basically playing Genie as simply the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air pretending to be a genie, rather than playing Genie as, well, Genie.

I'm not prepared to write Smith off with so little of the performance on display. I don't know why they chose him, I wouldn't choose him, but I don't think it's impossible that their script plus his Genie ends up being something good. I do look at that teaser though and think... really? Really? 

 

I still have faith that there'll be a fun family flick fere here. I trust Disney. This is not going to be 1992's Aladdin, but being 2019's Aladdin will probably be okay. If the new songs are good! "Dudes from La La Land" doesn't bode well but hopefully Menken can sort them out. Drives me mad when these dudes do remakes and ignore all the new songs they already wrote for Broadway.

You say "Dudes from La La Land" as if Pasek and Paul aren't as close to an EGOT as Menken and Dear Evan Hansen isn't the hottest show that isn't Hamilton
