Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

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.

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.

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".
