new episodes are up?

@  Boomhauer : (26 June 2019 - 01:30 PM)

The voice acting bothers me less than the weird-as-hell timing on the action. Entire show feels like its paced like a internet cartoon.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 June 2019 - 10:12 PM)

It's like drawing someone in the "superhero landing" pose. It's just part of the cultural vocabulary at this point.

@  Arazyr : (25 June 2019 - 07:14 PM)

I can hear that post... *shudder*

@  B-Fox : (25 June 2019 - 06:09 PM)

So why does Cyberverse sound like . . . *that*?

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 04:05 PM)

Also, the theoretical new image would be a new compostion, it would just be individual bodies, or even just body parts, that are based on existing references by other creators, with the major caveat that there is more than one example for each reference so it's basically more like "following an established trend" than "copying someone's original creation".

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 04:03 PM)

Well, an homage is usually marked by a signature along the lines of "artist X after artist Y". I wasn't thinking about recreating something particularly memorable, just looking for reference images (just of a pose/perspective/layout) that looks like what I want, then finding more examples that just happen to look very similar, and it cannot be determined which version came "first".

@  ZakuConvoy : (25 June 2019 - 03:09 PM)

What you're describing is more an "homage" than plagiarism, really. I'm assuming you would be using different characters. It's basically like all the comic covers that homage the death of Supergirl cover from Crisis on Infinite Earths...but with different characters. It's not plagiarism, it's a reference. But if several artists have a memorable layout and are all using it, chances are it actually is referencing something memorably original.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Would that still qualify as plagiarism? After all, it could be argued that what I've recreated isn't that original to begin with since several other people have supposedly had the same general idependently from each other.

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:54 PM)

And I were then to create a new image, not traced but maybe "swiped", except I wouldn't copy a specific source image, but merely recreate the basic pose and perspective shared between all of them...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:52 PM)

*deleted*

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:49 PM)

And out of sheer coincidence, they all feature very similar ideas, concepts, poses and/or perspectives, supposedly with none of the original creators having copied from one of the others...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:47 PM)

Assuming I were to find not one but two, three, four or even more source images, all of them by different artists, or by different photographers depicting different models...

@  Nevermore : (25 June 2019 - 01:45 PM)

Just out of curiosity, a question regarding the concept of plagiarism:

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

Welcome to the realization that our generation is a marketing demographic now. These films are specifically catered towards bringing in OUR dollars based on nostalgia.
 
Give it another ten years and we'll be seeing live action Lilo & Stitch and Emperor's New Groove.

Don't wait ten years! Use Spade and Warburton now before it's too late and they melt like poor John Goodman.

I want it to be Batmans origin story bit with a dalmation pulling the trigger

That's pretty much the best concept I have ever read. Thank you.

That movie script has a HEEELLLLLLL of an uphill battle. I can't imagine anything they could possibly write that would make "woman who wants to slaughter and skin a hundred puppies" sympathetic in any way.

-ZacWilliam, I feel like that's kind of a hard line to cross

I'm on her side just because it's puppies and not kittens. The only way it would be better is if it were seal pups. Partially because a movie about a 100+ seal pups in some insane person's house would be magical.
Or maybe hamsters because that is a massive display of dedication for a coat.

I go to movies alone all the time.  No coordinating schedules, so I can go at any time I please, and at busy showings, it's a hell of a lot easier to find one empty seat than 2 or more together.  Or you could use sites like Meetup.com to see if there's a group in your area that's centered around movies or Disney, and go join that.
 
Either way, please don't let that stop you from seeing films or having other experiences that you may enjoy.


Yeah, that's the easiest way to pull off the "pee in your cup" trick if your fellow moviegoer is a nag.

I can see it making that as long they keep the blue genie to a tiny amount in the marketing and maybe focus on Will as the Genie. I do think this film will out do Dumbo quite easily, that had a muted response from people, with that, I think people would rather see the original because this live action Dumbo is not to their tastes and likely a lot of people think its going be a rather drawn out movie (the original was 64 min long). Anyway with Aladdin, I think it will do well in cinemas and maybe beat projections, we'll see.

Just an observation, but the slightly new preview ahead of Shazam! makes it look better. It seems like Genie's CGI was finally done and he looks a little less strange. Still not totally sure, but for the first time I didn't think "Nope!"

I didn't think it was bad at all, considering it's Will Smith doing a cover of a Robin Williams song. Again, reinforcing the question of why is this movie even here if they're not going to do ANYTHING original with it? The brief bit of "You aint never had a friend like me" in the trailer made me think they'd at least let Smith retool the songs into something more his style...apparently not.

 

The problem is the scene loses a ton of its magic (pun intended) without Genie deliberately spiriting into the crowd getting them jazzed up for this unknown newcomer. Move the camera or something being aimed straight at the gate with Aladdin coming through but always being far from Genie just reeks of...

 

 

 

EDIT: So turns out the stage play version is pretty incredible, and not shackled to the animated song beat. So what the hell, Disney?

For me, the singing of the backup singers is what sounds the best in the Smith version of the song. Smith himself isn't bad, but his kind of style doesn't feel like it fits the song that well. Like Rust said, if they had tweaked the song a bit to try to fit it more to Smith's style, instead trying to tweak Smith himself to fit him to the song's preexisting style, then it might have been better. As is, it's just a passable take that, while certainly not awful, sadly could have been so much better than just adequate.

 

And yeah, Genie popping around the Agrabanians in the original did make it feel a ton more lively, and that Broadway version is somehow magnificent despite being way more low budget than this movie.

I think that the biggest problem with this scene is that he wasn't zapping in and out of the crowd like he did in the animated film. It really is a huge mistake and I wonder why they changed that part of it?

Yeah, it's very lifeless compared to the original version. Not terrible, but just kinda meh. The only hint of any kind of magical zipping around is Genie moving off-screen, and then re-appearing riding the ostriches that run in from the distance. Not exactly what I'd hoped for Aladdin's live-action remake, after mostly enjoying Beauty & the Beast and The Jungle Book.

 

Although this trailer looked better than the previous one visually, it still gives me the overall impression of being lower budget somehow, like the whole thing is shot on a sound stage of less grand size than the musical number itself warrants. It's still very evocative of a (heavily westernized) Bollywood film, which is kind of confusing as the story itself and setting aren't Indian; nor is much of the main cast.

Yeah, in order to make the most out of the play space, the Broadway version changes the parade from performing down the street to performing upon entering the palace's main doors. A sensible and quite clever adjustment of the song to play to the strengths of the stage medium.

 

With this movie, while the scope feels larger than the Broadway version, the execution feels weaker.
