He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Aren't combiners technically BAFs?

@  Rycochet : (03 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

The Anniversary Beast Wars figures had BAF parts over a decade ago, the minicons of RiD2 had BAF stuff too, heck, the Takara PVC line had Build A Figures back in the early 2000s.

@  Paladin : (03 October 2019 - 01:35 PM)

can't believe Build A Figures finally came to Transformers...

I just finished the first collection of comics on ComiXology. I'm starting the second now. It's the crossover I've always wanted. Now I can't wait for this movie to come out.

Oh man, this movie rocked!

 

So many references to so many different iterations of Batman and the TMNT. The overall art style and color scheme of this movie was most reminiscent of both the 2003 TMNT series and The Batman, complete with Batgirl's design and Tom Kenny's Penguin, but most everything else was either an original design or more inspired by other versions of each.

 

For as dark, violent, and serious as this movie was, there was also a whole lot of comedy sprinkled about that had me laughing practically throughout the whole thing. And that ending, that post-credits ending, I'm not expecting a sequel out of this, but I wouldn't mind some follow-up with that stinger.

Thanks for letting me know this was available. Amazon is saying the Blu-ray won't be available until June 4. But it's already on Amazon Prime video (and for some reason when I bought it on Amazon it also showed up in my iTunes library). I'll probably buy the Blu-Ray as well, if for no other reason than to have a physical version of it plus extras.

Please, no one ever request Tara Strong to voice Harley again after this. hugging awful.


Thing is, Tara Strong has played Harley before and done a pretty good job. I'll admit this might not be her strongest performance, but I still say it's tons better than Melissa Rauch in "Batman and Harley Quinn." Honestly, personal preference, but I still actually liked it better than Margot Robbie in the Suicide Squad movie. Though hearing Twilight Sparkle saying 'damn' was almost as interesting as some of the things said in Lollipop Chainsaw.

Troy Baker as Batman was a win, hands down. If ever they can't get Kevin Conroy, I'll accept Troy Baker. Rachel Bloom as Batgirl was decent enough. Not my favorite, but she wasn't bad at all.

This is easily the best TMNT movie. I mean, I liked a bunch of the TMNT movies (minus Turtles in Time and the Bay films. But this just nailed them. They finally got to cut loose in a way I haven't seen since the Mirage comics. I mean, this film actually had a body count!

As a Batman movie, it did okay. Not the best, far from the worst. I'd rate it as one of the better animated films. I'll definitely be watching this one again...

And again...and again, and again, and again...

They shouldn't have put in the killing violence because this would have been fun to show kids. Ivy not moving, the tongue scene, Alfred and Mikey, yeah those were great.

Mikey was the 2003 Fox TMNT, which was a great representation of the turtles. Nice to see/hear that.

I thought it was Conroy for a time then.

I actually enjoyed the more gritty Turtles. I realize that now they're seen as a kids show. But when they started out in the Mirage comics, they were not kid friendly. I see this kinda like the Tim Burton Batman after Adam West had been the most recognized Batman for so long. I'd love to see what happened to Batman finally happen for the Turtles...still having your more kid friendly TMNT while having other media returning them to their dark and gritty roots.

Speaking of this movie though, I got it digitally before I got the Bluray. The Bluray came with a digital code. But since I already have it digitally, PM me if you want my code. I'll check my PM's this evening. Whoever PM's first gets it.

I finally got around to seeing this.  It was pretty good, but I could never get past the idea that the Turtles and Batman exist in the same universe.  I kept thinking they would reveal they got there through some sort of inter-dimensional portal, returning at the end of the movie.

That's how it happens in the comic more or less. In fact, the effect that inter-dimensional travel has on the turtles is a big plot point. I guess they just didn't want to muddy the water for the movie.

That Leatherhead would more likely team up with Croc than fight him. ;)

 

Split the difference and have it be good guy scientist Leatherhead but voiced by Jim Cummings using a voice similar to his bad guy bayou Leatherhead.
