Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

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!

I hate the fact it's being billed as live action when it's not. It's just realistic CG style rather than Disney's typical CG style.


Don't fight it, it's coming for you, running at ya / It's only this moment, don't care what comes after
Your fever dream, can't you see it getting closer / Just surrender 'cause you feel the feeling taking over
It's fire, it's freedom, it's flooding open / It's a preacher in the pulpit and you'll find devotion
There's something breaking at the brick of every wall, it's holding All that you know
So tell me do you wanna go?

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?

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'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.
