I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

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.

Damn, you end that trailer at the 2:20 mark and it's a good horror short film in and of itself.

Seth Green did other things like supporting roles and more in movies and TV shows.

 

What about Jonathan Brendis what did you think of his performance?

 

I enjoyed the novel since i was 10 when i read it and saw the miniseries first when it debuted on ABC, this new adaptation is quite good but i always liked the adult part of the story better than the kids one as i seen kids vs monsters done better in Monster Squad, The Gate etc. as i feel adults going on an adventure against a monster feels fresh in my view and this looks like it's gonna include the hate crime scene that was too much for the miniseries and what Pennywise's true form looks like than the stupid looking spider from the miniseries.

Saw It chapter 2. No extra scene at the end so no worries about that.

I'd have to say, the first one was better. Yeah, I do love seeing the adult versions (except James MacAvoy) because they resemble the kids (especially Eddie. Hader as Richie was pushing it. Adult Ben looks like Ricky Martin with a goatee, hehe).

But they changed stuff from the novel! And it's not for the better. Like, they changed the character of some of them and omitted the further use of a few more. Because of that, some parts of the film seem like loose ends not tied up properly.

And beating It was, not that good (can't say why) or at least not as good as the first one. In the first one, it was that It was stuck on one shape when focusing on one kid so the others were able to attack them. When It focused on another, the remaining kids attacked again etc. Yes, I know that's not in the novel but it still makes sense. In Chapter 2, urgh.

Still an awesome fun thrill type movie for the CGI jump scares and such. And with more comedy so the relief is better afterwards. But the first one is better. Like, I wanted more of Richie being a Trashmouth and Eddie being a hypochondriac. Bill was meh (I'm tired of him). Everyone in the cinema was just gushing whenever Ben pined after Beverly, haha

Sorry to hear its not as good as the first, I also thought the adult parts of the book were probably stronger.

Still, realy forward to seeing this as was surprised at how good part 1 was despite the changes. I'm annoyed they got McAvoy as he's a bit distracting.

Richie trash talking It is probably my favourite part of the book. Didn't like all the weird kid sexual stuff, KIng books have a lot of that in them though.

It's just my opinion though. I mean, folks could still like it equal or better than the first. The changes and omissions from the novel MIGHT go unnoticed by folks who don't know about it.

Actually, I'd like to know how they do take it. Like, do they feel this was incomplete or if this was out of character etc.

I feel like watching the first one again, to re experience the thrill, hehe.

It was okay. I get why they had to make the changes they did (because the turtle stuff was ridiculous) but how the writers had the the final confrontation happen was kind of a contrivance. It's a decent movie but the first was waay better

Saw it Saturday.  It's a good movie, but yes, not nearly as good as the first part.

 

The adult actors are good and all that, but I guess it doesn't have as much appeal with the adult versions as it does the kid versions.

 

The film loses that Goonies vibe.

One thing that was a little off from me, was it seemed as though Richie (Bill Hader's character) had seen the first movie.  At least one reference (Pennywise's dancing) was something he hadn't seen but made a joke about it.

Just back from it, seemed a bit like a parody of the first at parts I felt. Plus I don't really see why it wouldn't just kill them all as kids, it had plenty of opportunity.
