i might watch spaced invaders. not scary in any way, but it takes place during halloween

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 October 2020 - 02:21 PM)

I think I'll watch The Haunting (1963), Carnival of Souls (1962) and The Innocents (1961) for Halloween.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 01:52 PM)

50/60's Twilight Zone, the 80's, millennium and recent ones also, all are in The Twilight Zone.

It's only fitting that SImpsons have halloween specials since it's been a shambling corpse of its former self since its teens.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 04:12 AM)

No I caught one of the latest one with parodies of Stranger Things which admittedly is horror series but Heaven Can Wait and The Shape of Water are Fantasy films. Plus implications of the characters being sociopaths or twisted has become a norm these days.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

Which probably adds to the "reasons they should just stop making more of The Simpsons" pile.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 October 2020 - 02:58 AM)

You make it sound like The Simpsons becoming less repetitive is a bad thing.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 October 2020 - 02:48 AM)

Remember when Simpsons Halloween specials parodied horror movies and would have the characters make off out of character remarks like "we chucked donuts at a old man for kicks."? they don't and can't do that any more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 October 2020 - 08:00 PM)

Tired of the same old Halloween stuff? Check out Tubi. The depths of the schlock available is astounding.

It's weird to see how much of Larry Hama's "satire" from the old GI Joe comic has no longer become satire in the past few years.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

I just read "Tesla Cybertruck" like AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", now it won't get out of my head, so I inflict it on all of you as well.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

What are some games that you sold for whatever reason (you really needed the money, you were bored with them) but later you regretted selling it so you bought it again?

When my Gamecubes memory card became corrupted, there were a bunch of games that I was like "well, that was fun, but I have no heart to play through all that again." So I sold off a bunch of my Gamecube games.

One of them was "Skies of Arcadia." I absolutely loved that game and was sorry I sold it off. So years later I rebought it from Gamestop (and boy oh boy did I ever have to hunt for it). Thing is, after I bought it back, I never played it again. It's just sitting there on my shelf.

Kind of the same thing happened with my PS3. The system bricked and I had to get it repaired. Once it was repaired, I had to format the hard drive. So there went all my save data. Again, heart broken and not feeling like going through all of that again, I sold off a bunch of games.

One was Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. I had Skyrim (and later bought it on PS4 and Switch). Why would I need Oblivion? But then time passed and I reeeeeally wanted to play Oblivion again. So I bought it off Amazon.

Another one was Kingdoms of Amalur. At first I was like, well it was a fun game, but I have Skyrim, I don't really need another game like it. But as time passed (and Ellen from Outside Xtra kept talking about it), I came to really miss Kingdoms of Amalur. Well, just a couple days ago, I found a whole bunch of copies at Disc Replay for $5. Hell yeah I bought it back! I know what I'm going to be doing for the foreseeable future.

Seriously, $5! I feel like I practically stole it!

How about a system? I sold and bought back no less then 4 Gamecubes

 

When the Cube launched I got a purple one when I got dissapointed with the line up of games trickeling out for it I sold it

When Mario Sunshine finally came out I bought a black one

When I was completely disappointed in Sunshine I sold it

When Soul Cal 2 came out with Link I bought another black one

 

Thats the only ones I can remember the reasons why in the end I ended up with a black one and about 15 games and a GBA player

I've only ever re purchased games when I'd sold there console as well. Had RE4 and REmake for the cube, and later purchased them digital.

The snes classic has a number of games I owned as a kid.

Probably a few other digital ones.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

That definitely counts. I only ever rebought the Gamecube because my first one's disc player stopped working. My first one was a platinum colored one. My second one was purple. Now if I feel like playing a Gamecube game I just use my Wii.

Nah! That's just double dipping. I do that all the time. You don't even wanna know how many copies I have (or have had) of: Zelda, Ocarina of time, Metroid, Final Fantasy VII, Dragon Quest I, Super Mario 1, Super Mario 2, Super Mario 3...

Dear heavens, I need a life!

I've sold games for older consoles because I bought them on Steam. Does that count?

I haven't bought them back, but I rather regret letting my wife sell my PS2 and the collection of games there-in. I had a small but rocking list (.hack trilogy, Final Fantasy 7-X2, Xenosaga, R.A.D. - Robot Alchemic Drive, Silent Hill 2).

 

But being honest with myself, I doubt I'd ever revisit any of them.

As far as games go I had very little regrets in selling games off

 

I have even sold internet gems like SNES Crono Trigger and Arc the Lad collection and Sega Musha

Only one I can think of that I sold was Totally Rad for the NES.

 

It's not the best game, but it's quirky enough that I began to regret selling it, so I decided to buy it back. The exact same copy from the store I sold it to.

 

Only other games I can think of that I re-purchased for the same system were games that I didn't sell, but were damaged or stolen.
