It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 November 2019 - 07:54 AM)

2 inches of snow on the side of the house, 2 feet of snow on the deck. I hate this winter already.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

thats right! i booked my trip just a few minutes ago! on september 4th, lil ol telly is heading for fun in the sun on the beaches of waikiki! i NEVER thought id be able to do something like this! i always thought itd be too expensive, but its actually fairly cheap ($1500 round trip and for the hotel)
 
i started planning this last year. i realized i was spending all my money on THINGS, and always sitting around the house when on vacation. i didnt have any fun experiences or adventures to look back on. well i decided to put an end to that! ive got a fairly good paying job, a good credit card limit (which i used to pay for the trip) and im 44 years old. i figured it was time to do SOMETHING. im finally going to take a REAL vacation!
 
i cant wait and im so excited!!!!!

That bit you said about spending on things instead of experiences? Totally true. I thought I was being practical by wanting tangible things but more often than not, it's the experiences that you treasure more.

Awesome! One thing I've learned about traveling-be very very careful with impulse buys and tourist traps. Be sure to stretch your legs during the flight. Get to the airport at least 3hrs early. Carry photocopies of your passport just in case. Don't carry all your cash on one spot. Study up on local customs. Don't try to cram your schedule too much, leave some time to get lost and chill.

I'll second Marukami Udon - although, depending on the time of day, you may have to wait in queue.

 

Hanauma Bay is great for snorkelling, and if you get there right when it opens, it's free entry (and not nearly as crowded as later on in the day).  "Toilet Bowl" is the section of the bay on the far-left side of the beach that doesn't get as much traffic, and despite the name, it's a nice spot to start out in.

 

Definitely spend some time driving around the East side of the island, even it's just to circle back to the airport to drop off the rental.  There are some really nice scenic views - it's where they filmed Jurassic Park, after all.

im not really planning on doing anything in advance (like pre-buying tickets). at least not yet anyway. i may add some things as time gets closer.  im just gonna wander around to see what catches my interest. i wont be renting a car, but i will be renting a scooter. i love riding those things. might spend a day just scooting around and taking pics. ill go snorkeling at least once though. cant go to hawaii and not do that. i MIGHT trying parasailing. will have to see how brave i am when im there. but bungee jumping is RIGHT OUT! i get nervous just watching other people do it. i HAVE to spend time at the beach. ive never even seen an ocean, let alone been in one. when im on the beach with a nice drink just lounging around im gonna send my boss a selfie

 

one thing im really looking forward to, is seeing my first hawaiian sunset. i dont know why im looking forward to it so much, but there we are. the hotel im staying at (the ilima hotel) has a terrace on the roof, so im just gonna get a drink or 2, find a comfy chair and watch the sun go down :) i did read some reviews of the hotel and some people complained about the pool being small. the hug you need a pool when the hugging OCEAN is TWO BLOCKS AWAY? 

 

for those that have been there, any tips on what i should take with me? i dont have much at the moment. ive got a pair of sandals, some puzzle books for the plane and a waterproof fanny pack for when im swimming. gotta make sure nothing gets stolen! i figure id buy sunscreen when im there, as im sure theyll have the appropriate kind to use (something about it being coral safe).

 

oh yeah. my little skeleton is going with me, and i bought him a nice little rocking chair so he can sit on the balcony with me

We had an excellent time there.

 

We stayed in the Hilton Waikiki right on the water which was lovely. It was also easily within walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants. Definitely touristy, but not bad. It reminded me of Miami-meets-Vegas. We did have a rental which was good to have - though I guess a scooter will get you where you need to go, it might just take a bit. Bonus, parking will be much easier for you; I paid more to park our rental at the hotel than I paid for the rental itself. Free street parking is available, but VERY hard to find.

 

We went to the Kapi'olani Regional Park, which is the dormant volcano on the southern tip of the island. It was an old army base and you can hike up to the ridge and walk through parts of the command tower and stuff. Obviously fantastic views. We also did a short hike up to Manoa Falls which was pretty. The falls themselves weren't anything dramatic, but it was just a pleasant excursion. Passed on Pearl Harbor because a good chunk of it is closed right now (including the memorial itself).

 

We took one day to go up to the North Shore, where we went to CLIMB Works Keana Farms Zipline tour. HIGHLY recommended because it gets you a brief history lesson of Hawaii in addition to some incredible views of that end of the island. Eight ziplines over all one of which is a half-mile long! There are a bunch of permanent food trucks right there by CLIMB Works, but they all close around 4pm. However if you follow 83 up around the northern tip of the island, there were a bunch of other options still open later in the day. That made a great place to watch the sun set over the Pacific.

 

As for food, we ate at MAC 24/7 which was a diner-type place in a hotel (good, if not overly exciting). Shorefyre in the International Marketplace was also good. Other meals were at various food trucks or some of the smaller shops around our hotel.

 

I would've liked to do more hiking, but my wife isn't as big a fan. That being said, she was obviously quite happy with the beach time, so it was a great trip over all.

If you need glasses to see, get some tethers for them so you don't have to worry about a wave knocking them off in the ocean, hat, sun glasses and beach towel. Some kind of opaque drink container to take alcohol to the beach in. Depending on what and how you pack, you may be better of buying some or all of this stuff there, as paying for an extra checked bag is expensive.

Try a Loco moco. It's a delicious food pile. We went to a lu ow or however its spelled. It was pretty great, open bar, dancing, food, music.

We did lots of hiking, it's beautiful, fun and costs little to nothing depending on where you go.

the hotel ill be at has free parking, but its first come first serve. and like i said, i just love riding a scooter! and i dont mind it taking longer to get places on one. im not gonna be in ANY rush getting anywhere. my life is already governed by a clock due to work, so itll be nice not having to worry about having to be somewhere at a certain time (except for my ride home of course!)

 

i read about the volcano/army base. it sounds interesting

 

id like to go to the pearl harbor memorial, if only to take pics for my dad since he was in the navy. i did see it was closed, but hopefully itll be open when im there

 

ill have to try the zipline. probly the closest ill come to feeling like batman! im confused though. does the zipline place close at 4, or just the food trucks?

i do wear glasses, and thats one of the reasons for the waterproof pouch. i dont plan to actually wear them while im in the water, but i dont want someone to make off with them. god thatd suck! i CAN see without them a bit, but if i lost them id miss all the sites. maybe i should look into getting another pair just in case...

 

ive got clip on sunglasses, so im good there. a lot of stuff i plan to buy when i get there so theyll say "hawaii" or whatever on them

 

Throw stuff into lava at every possible opportunity.

 

i mean, i do plan to visit a volcano. dont know about getting close enough to toss stuff in though

 

Bring empty room in your suitcase for souvenirs.

 

was already planning on it. im thinking of putting up a jar at work for people to put money in for souvenirs, then take all that and buy them all whatever i can

 

thanks for all the good advice :) if anyone comes up with more things go ahead and do so. ill be keeping an eye on and updating this thread every now and again. when i actually get there, be on the look out for the "holy crap im actually IN hawaii" thread!

Oahu doesn't have active volcanoes, they've all moved on to the big island.

 

If you do the zipline at CLIMB Works, you have to reserve a time as they send you out in groups. It's a good couple of hours to do the whole thing. The restaurants nearby close at four, so if you have a slot in the afternoon, everything will be shutting down by the time you're finished. But again, plenty more options further up the road around the northern tip of the island.
