The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

@  tigerhawk : (23 April 2021 - 04:59 AM)

Saint Georges Day.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 08:41 AM)

Also, how would copyright law standardization be enforced? I doubt any country's governments would be eager to start trade sanctions over it.

Spoiler

 

 

It does sound like a very Terminator movie thing to do, though. Makes me suspect it could very well be for real.  :rolleyes

 

Personally, I think I'm pretty much done with this franchise. I'm normally not overly sensitive to remakes/reboots, even when made within close proximity to each other (sometimes they're a good thing, as when Sony binned the awful Amazing Spider-Man franchise), but I actually kind of wouldn't have minded to see where Genisys went with the multiverse-hopping Matt Smith Skynet thing. The movie had its issues, but man the first 20 or-so minutes when we got to see how it went down in the original original future was pure eye candy, especially on the UHD.

I rather they had carried on with Salvation's story line, that was the breath of fresh air the series needed, get away from Time travel and show the war they kept hinting at and how bleak things are for humanty at that point in time.

I don't ever want to see more of Salvation, what a waste.

I do want to see more of the future war as portrayed in the original and T2. Those scenes has great atmosphere, set design, prop design, and tone. The tank treads crunching through the ruble and bones, magnificent.

Salvation replaced all of this with generic looking soldiers, with generic off the shelf guns, in a bland generic waste land.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

It struck me while watching Godzilla this weekend...we got trailers for another installment in what was once my favorite movie franchise, and an installment in a franchise (Fast and Furious) I’ve never seen one movie from. And the latter trailer actually tempted me to see it, while the former was like running into a hated ex at the supermarket.

Ok, if you want to read potential take-a- massive-grain-of-salt-no-really spoilers, the in the spoiler tag is the link and my thoughts on these apparent Dark Fate plot leaks from test screening making the rounds.

How do I put my thoughts politely?

 

HOT.

GARBAGE.

 

Just going by the trailer, this is going to be what Alien: Resurrection was to Alien.

 

No. No. Too generous, I think. Resident Evil: Afterlife is the vibe I'm getting from this trailer.

It's a snuff film. James Cameron just strung up the corpse of T2 and just started savagely beating it with a nail studded baseball bat.

While the new trailers are...better than the last one. They do some to confirm a lot of the plot leaks that have been bandied about.

Skynet gone, but a new, all but identical threat exists.
Dani is the new hero of the Resistance.
Her protector is an augmented cyber-human who can go toe to toe with a Terminator.
When Sarah meets the T-800, her reactions really say to me thst, yeah, they really are going to kill off John Connor.

The only really good thing i can say about this film, is that the Rev-9 Terminator does seem like a good, murderous infiltration unit. Other than that, this film feels like a hard reboot, that wants the legacy of the original, without having to use much of it.

As for Cameron, apparently how only really provided a story treatment and some dialogue rewrites here and there. He's off doing his Avatar movies. Mr.h reviews on youtube has an interesting vid on this.

I've watched the good Terminator movies and I've watched the bad Terminator movies. I'm prepared to give this a chance. Cameron and Hamilton are back, so I'm slightly more hopeful.

I also seem to be one of the few that actually liked Genisys.

Not the only one. I may not enjoy as much, but i do find good things in it. As well as the (admittedly muddled) potential for something interesting.

I will certainly wait and see what this film actually is. However, everything about this thst says 'we're continuing the story by erasing everything you liked and starting over' does not give me any hope.

Your scientists have yet to discover how neural networks create self-consciousness, let alone how the human brain processes two-dimensional retinal images into the three-dimensional phenomenon known as perception. Yet you somehow brazenly declare that seeing is believing!

The Terminator has no time line any longer. No movie matters, the story will never progress beyond the baseline "Robot bad, save future savior of humanity".
