@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:54 PM)

I'd rather not deal with the horrible but unintended consequences of that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 09:52 PM)

Lets let Perceptor make a vaccine for COVID-19. Who agrees with me :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 08:43 PM)

I'll take your word for it. =D

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:42 PM)

Although the TV edits of Robocop do contain some hilarity

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 May 2020 - 08:41 PM)

I can't think of any instance where sanitizing a film is a good thing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 06:42 PM)

.... and thats a good thing? :doh

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 May 2020 - 06:39 PM)

I'm watching Predator on Starz! That means it has all the language and gore uncensored!

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 04:23 PM)

*grabs popcorn*

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 12:49 PM)

*watching everyone argue* O^O

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2020 - 10:22 AM)

By that logic we might as well just get rid of the Shoutbox wholesale! I'd rather have like 3 or 4 things stuck for a week or so than one person dominating the whole thing (no offense Nevermore).

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 May 2020 - 03:30 AM)

I would argue that "full of something one doesn't read" and "devoid of reading material" are functionally identical at the end-user level. :D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:58 PM)

If it emptied, it would become empty.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 07:53 PM)

It would be the same effect as if the shoutbox simply emptied once or twice a week.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 May 2020 - 07:27 PM)

I don't see how having walls of the same guy on top whenever I go to any page on this site is "refreshing".

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 06:10 PM)

I don't know, I find the occasional flushing of the box to be refreshing.

@  Telly : (22 May 2020 - 04:20 PM)

but its gets annoying seeing a wall of text from him that takes up most of the shoutbox

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 May 2020 - 03:53 PM)

Eh, that's just Nevermore.

@  fourteenwings : (22 May 2020 - 12:11 AM)

@Nevermore: Good rule of thumb is if you feel like you need not just multiple statements but also multiple shouts to make a point, best just make a thread.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Dude, do you just, not know when to stop?

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:35 PM)

Instead of "I have only ten hours to get all my stuff from place A to place B", it's more like "I temporarily stored 90% of my stuff in easily accessible place C in my spare time, so now I have ten hours to get the remaining 10% of my stuff over to the new place before permanently saying goodbye to the old place".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2020 - 03:33 PM)

At these point you two are just repeating what you already said.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Again using my "moving apartments" analogy. If you can store the stuff you don't immediately need for everyday life somewhere else, it reduces the critical time of permanently switching your primary base of residence over to the new place because there's less stuff to move when the time comes.

Gotcha, I didn't realize they were an item.

 

Sadly this'll succeed the same way Sharknado succeeded. It's a pile of shit, and people will watch it and howl "That's a pile of shit! Hahahahahahaha!".

The same people who thought Archie needed a dark twist.
You mean the dude who got in legal trouble for doing 3rd party Archie, and then became in charge of the legit property?

Yes, that's a 100% true story. Google it.

Uh, what? Who? How? (What do I Google, hehe)

I just feel like we're entering a new stage of what brand identity is and can be used for. Like, they got the rights to this property so they could claim "authenticity", and also maybe some marginal name recognition. That was a better trade than just making something up. It's the same kind of weird that weird brand Twitter was. It's a retro ephemera eBay item YouTube unboxing and review, but the product being reviewed is the movie rights to The Banana Splits.

It is actually kind of interesting. There have always been parodies or homages to these types of things in the horror genre, but obviously no one is going to allow their property to be used like this. Chuck E Cheese is not going on a murder spree.

 

Snagging the rights to this allows them to do it with an existing, albeit dormant, property vs inventing yet another "Random creepy mascot" idea.

The worst part is we already know how it ends.

Did I ever tell you about the time Brasky went hunting? Brasky decides hes going to hunt down all four of the Banana Splits. He stalks and kills every one of them with a machette. They all begged for their lives except Fleagle.

So this, just brought up a whole load of rocket powered nightmare fuel.

For what its worth, I kinda respect that they made the costumes look like the old show rather then trying to update them or make them CGI or something.

What bothers me is making them animatronic. They've always been guys in suits. Even in the film it's obviously guys in suits. Yet there's clear FNaF vibes and they made them animatronic.

 

If you want to do a FNaF movie, then do a FNaF movie. Don't legally buy the rights to another property then retroactively change fundamental things about said property.

 

 

Also does this mean in 40 years we'll get a gritty, hard edged psychological thriller involving the Wiggles?

They are, its being directed and produced by Chris Columbus, but is currently in development hell it seems.
 

 

In February 2018, it was announced that Chris Columbus would direct and write the film, besides producing it alongside Blum and Cawthon.[117] In August 2018, Cawthon announced that the first draft of the movie's script, which involves only the events of the first game, was completed, and that there may be a second and third movie after.[118] In the same month, Blum wrote on Twitter that the movie was aiming for a 2020 release.[119] In November, Cawthon announced that the current script for the film has been scrapped, which will contribute to a further delay to the film.[120]

I guess the thing that bugs me is that an existing property some people vaguely remember is so fundamentally different a thing from inventing random creepy mascots. I'm suspicious of what that actually means.

One of my friends is really bothered by this film's existence because apparently the Banana Splits had some kind of short in front of a Scooby Doo movie his kids watched, and his kids are all 7 and under. So he's worried that there's possibly a unintended audience for this work. Yeah, the Banana Splits are obscure, but they aren't unknown.

The biggest thing the Banana Splits have done in the past 40+ years was that comic crossover with the Suicide Squad.

Yes, thats a thing.

They are very much unknown. Especially to the average person under the age of 60.
