'save the cheerleader' then in season 3 he tears her skull open, scans her power and she simply heals. They didn't think any of it through.

@  Shockwave 75 : (17 June 2021 - 07:04 PM)

Well, you know Hollywood; if something's popular, run it into the ground!

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

And then there was the Writers' Strike, which isn't the show's fault.

@  Cybersnark : (17 June 2021 - 04:40 PM)

Yeah, Sylar should've been, if not killed off, at least left to rest.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

It never truly recovered from that.

@  Nevermore : (17 June 2021 - 03:43 PM)

Season 1 was good until the finale.

I think I've heard "I Need a Hero" more times this past week than I have in the past several years.

Thanks to Earthrise I can recreate the end of Return of Optimus Prime part 1.

I wish they would do something like that here: but then it would become obvious in which provinces you're getting gouged.

Here in Germany, the price you see is the price you pay, tax included.

Now that you have seen this Bass XO, you must send it to five other Bass XOs or BassXO will come to you in a week and then you too will be BassXO.

A wild Bass X0 has appeared!

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 05:20 PM)

I didn't even try this time.

@  Nevermore : (12 June 2021 - 03:43 AM)

8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 June 2021 - 12:16 PM)

I think Hasbro Pulse is broken. Dang Star Wars nerds!

@  tigerhawk : (10 June 2021 - 04:46 AM)

When I googled 'space bridge' I was disappointed. Maybe in a hundred years.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 June 2021 - 04:05 PM)

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

@  Donocropolis : (09 June 2021 - 05:37 AM)

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

Eh... Yeah, not sure how well this one will go, given the puppy killing. You know they can't show that. I doubt that they'll have any furs made from dogs. Are they going to have furs from other animals and show the bunnies/minks/etc that they come from?

Plus, IMO Cruella isn't even a fun villain, just mean.

I think they confuse her with the song. Cruella Deville the song is fun.

 

...Though I suppose the Glenn Close version might arguably be fun, espically in the sequel...

I have been wondering how they would present her to be a sympathetic character considering the dog killing. I figured they would change the dog killing somehow.

The Cruella from the animated series was over-the-top fun too.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

First impression from the trailer is that It's almost like Disney's trying to do a take on Psycho, or a slasher film or something.  

 

...My second impression is that they're trying to make Cruella into their Harley Quinn, which seems MUCH more likely to me, but I guess we'll see.

This basically comes off, to me, as Disney's Joker. It feels like a very similar style of movie.

That feels apt. But the thing is: The question of how a man became a clown themed, psychotic criminal is a lot more compelling than how did a rich person become selfish and eccentric.

Maybe it'll show how she became rich in the first place, if she wasn't born into wealth.

 

Also, quoting myself from an old post in the Aladdin remake thread when the subject of this movie first came up:

 

Once Upon a Time's backstory for Cruella (as weird as it was) at least knew to lean in to her psychosis by making us at first think she was misunderstood and mistreated in her youth, but was actually just as much of a monster back then too, and only became more ruthless and cunning as she grew up.

I get a similar impression from this trailer. That she's already nuts and is self-aware of how people would react to her if they ever knew her true nature, and so this movie could be about how she manipulates her way up the ladder to become the wealthy fashionista businesswoman that she is by the time of 101 Dalmatians.

I really don't see this doing as well as Maleficent, which was a completely different character then the one we saw in Sleeping Beauty of course.  Mostly because animal cruelty can't be disguised by more sympathetic viewpoint.  At least with Maleficent, you can retell the Sleeping Beauty story in such a way that all parties can be viewed as sympathetic because that's what the original story was.  The only mistep was not turning Angelina Jolie into a CGI dragon.

 

Ironbite-would've changed the whole ending of the movie.
