It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Paladin : (19 July 2019 - 07:58 AM)

sidebar- has enough time passed that we can stop irrationally hating "Crystal Skull" yet?

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  TriBlurr : (16 July 2019 - 05:26 PM)

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

That video kind of sums up my feelings in regards to the villian twist, it was a poorly executed twist no matter what way you look at it, great the first time around but on repeat viewings, the flaws become exposed painfully, all he ever needed to do was NOTHING Anna pretty much handed him the keys to the kingdom when she went chasing after her sister, isn't there like a Prime minister or a guardian for the girls to be in charge of the kingdom, Anna only just met Hans, aside from the fact she desperate for love or a boyfriend, she abandon's her procession as heir to the throne to chase after her sister leaving the man she just met a few hours ago (min maybe?) in charge. Maybe when Disney decides its time for a Frozen live action film, they'll sort that sort of thing out.

2. The songs, after "Let it go", my personal fav is "Do you want to build a snowman? (there is a lot of heart in that song)"

It also led to one of my favourite parodies.

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.

I dunno, other than some hints in that earlier song, the twist kinda doesn't make sense with a lot of the guy's scenes, especially the part of the first one when he's by himself and gives a look on his face that comes across as sincere both internally and externally. As well as in certain other scenes where he's genuinely considerate, benevolent, and honorable to those around him. It's only when the twist occurs that it tries to make us think otherwise, but it just doesn't work with everything presented in the movie presented beforehand.

 

Film Theory once did a video that further explained why the twist doesn't work and tried to figure out what could have led to such a nonsensical twist, like if there was some greater force behind it. Of course, by now we can probably say that this theory won't be a part of this sequel film, but it's still an interesting idea to think about:

 

 

I really like the twist in this.

I don't feel for a second that it invalidates anything that came before. For all we know, he does care about the subjects, he is genuinely considerate and honourable in regards to being a king.

...However, he is willing to do whatever it takes to get to that position of being a king. He's 13th In line himself, unless he plays dirty, he's never going to get the job...and he really wants to help others, so this is the only way he can do it.

 

I like a villain like that, it gives him dimensions, not just a twirling mustache of 'I will kill to be King, so therefore I must be a bad king too' level of characterisation.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

It's just, all he had to do was let Anna hand him the throne instead of exposing himself.

 

if anything, the twist would have worked better if he'd kissed Anna, saw that it didn't work, and then explained himself after Anna would question why his kiss didn't cure her. Plus, that way would have also opened Anna's eyes to how true love isn't like some idealistic fairy tale before Hans would even have had to explain himself.

 

But I guess Disney these days doesn't want any of their princesses lip-to-lip kissing onscreen anyone other than their designated love interests.

I said it when the movie came out, Frozen was a fantastic movie that's only flaw is making Hans a villain when the story would have worked perfectly well with no real villain. Hell could have think he loved her, kiss her, have it not work, and then in denial he goes out to kill Elsa in the belief it is the only way to save Anna. Movie climax plays out almost entirely the same and in the end and he realizes that he might have had a crush on her but it wasn't true love and that maybe he needs to grow a bit before trying to pursue romance. That way he's not a villain just a guy who made a bad call in an emergency and it gives kids in the audience several more important lessons.

 

Him just suddenly going "mwahaha im evil" was.. disappointing.

 

Still not as disappointing as the Frozen world in KH3 tho. man that.. that was just a mess.

As someone who hasn't seen Frozen, this line presented without context makes Disney far edgier than it is. :D

Hans as a villain is great though. It shows that the smooth talking, seemingly kind people can be monsters that are only pretending to get what they want.

 

 

That seems like a good life lesson to teach kids.

Don't trust people with your life and everything that matters to you the day you meet them even if they seem great, isn't bad advice at all.

To me that twist is what made the movie go from okay to excellent, so I'm all for it. Also, teaching young girls not to immediately fall for the first smooth-talking pretty boy they develop a crush on is a valid lesson.
