Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

God forbid a company should dare develop new iterations of their existing properties. It's not the end of the world, people. It might be great, it might be (given the subject matter, literal) dog shit, but either way - I think it's a pretty legitimate use of Disney's time. 

 

Personally they had me at "Tessa Thompson and Justin Theroux". I can't wait for this.

Ya know, I didn't realize this was just one sliver of a massive info dump on the Disney+ streaming service. Maybe this should just get turned into the Disney+ thread? Assuming one is even needed.

 

 

Disney’s streaming service, Disney+, will launch on November 12th for $6.99 a month or $69.99 per year, the company confirmed on Thursday.

 

 

Mayer also announced a couple of new projects coming to Disney+, including confirming that Marvel was working on a series based around Avengers characters, Falcon (Anthony Mackie) and Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan). Falcon and Winter Soldier joins a number of series currently in development, including two confirmed live-action projects from Marvel Studios focusing on Loki and Hawkeye, a Monsters, Inc. show, a High School Musical show, and a Star Wars series focusing on a bounty hunter, called The Mandalorian. Disney will also end its vault program in time for Disney+, according to a previous investors call. The vault program essentially made it impossible to buy a movie until it was released for a limited time. Now, all movies will be available to stream exclusively on Disney+, according to Iger.

The Hollywood Reporter previously reported that Disney would launch its streaming service with “500 films from the Disney library ... in addition to around 7,000 episodes of Disney TV.”

 

 

Additional series announced by Marvel at the event include What If, an animated series that will "take pivotal moments from the MCU and turn them on their head," and WandaVision, a vaguely teased series starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and The Vision, respectively.

 

Includes all the good Simpsons episodes and a bunch of bad ones.

 

 


 

 

A Jeff Goldblum National Geographic series.

 

 

Called “The World According to Jeff Goldblum,” the series comes from Disney-owned National Geographic. Per Disney: “Jeff pulls back the curtain on a seemingly familiar object to reveal a world of astonishing connections, fascinating science, and a whole lot of big ideas.”

 

Dangerously little information on Disney Afternoon content so far, but hey.

Disney will soon start wondering why movies with the Disney brand stop making lots of money, reason, their live action remakes and the fact they aren't producing any original family films any more, its obvious Disney have lost sight of what made them a household name in the first place, these days they are to busy with live action remakes or sequels, when I looked up what they got planned but with no dates attached, among them was Snow White and the Seven Drawfs, that's right folks, they are going back, back to the begining of animated movies to make another live action remake, here is a list of all their future films excluding Marvel & Lucasfilm:

 

https://en.wikipedia...Future_releases

 

One thing I spotted in that list, Nightmare Before Christmas 2, and I'm thinking "WTF?" Does that film even need a sequel?

Couldn't they at least do animated remakes of some properties?  Like the ones that had kind of "eh" animation, like The Aristocats (and they could also take out the uncomfortable racist caricature cat in the band who plays Chopsticks with literal chopsticks and, I don't know, give it some kind of plot).

 

There's nothing wrong with live action, but . . . I like animation too.  Disney.  Give me your animation.  Your 2-D style animation.

So it was developed specifically to be dumped unceremoniously onto their streaming service. meh.

 

Maybe I'm old-fashioned, but I still like the "big event" feel that a theatrical presentation lends to things; especially if said thing is some kind of shameless cash-in on my nostalgia. If they're going to be so cheap and transparent, I want it to feel bigger (& better is probably asking too much) than before. This gives me more the impression of a direct-to-VHS release, which isn't exciting. It might not be terrible... Return of Jafar wasn't terrible... but it's no event.

Given Disney's resent long term plan, it could be a fair bet they were originally planning to stick it in cinemas, who knows, maybe they still might do and then when its left cinemas, they stick it on their streaming service for a little while before releasing it to home media.

You are old fashioned. Being on the streaming service isn't a dump, it's a push to give cause for people to subscribe to the service. The same way the Loki, Vision and Scarlet Witch, and Bucky and Falcon series are for Marvel or the Mandalorian series is for Star Wars.

Yeah, this.   Disney has been working really hard on getting their streaming service both up and packed with high quality, unique content for a couple years now.  This is a major new push for them, they constantly have mentioned it during shareholder meetings for a while now on how this is a big new focus for them.  They want it to do well so they can use it to be a big player in streaming environment, which has been proven to be a major source of revenue thanks to Netflix and Hulu.

 

This also is an easy way for Disney to leverage one of it's biggest assets, it's gigantic vault of IP's, in a way they completely control.

 

The way Disney is doing this feels a lot like their past pushes into new areas of revenue generation.  Just look at Disney's Cruise Line's development history for a similar situation.

I would LOVE a series of movies that gave Prydain (my ipad autocorrected that to "Predaking") a slightly more faithful treatment than Disney's original take on the material.

And yeah. This stuff is not being dumped anywhere. The streaming service itself is the event - and a big one - and all these Disney and SW and Marvel things they've announced for it are various stones in the glove. They're not just trash being burned off, this isn't the direct to video era. The world is different.
