I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

V For Vendetta was a good flick, but it just wasn't the comic book. In fact, it was kinda counter to the comic in some places...

BUt I'm looking forward to Watchmen. Visually, at least.

I'm pretty sure the movie will be average at the box office. I'm not saying that out of some kind of hope, just my current opinion.

I went back and reread the series, I had not read it since the early 90s. I have to say it hasn't held up well. For it's time it was groundbreaking. Back in the eighties, this kind of material almost never made it to print in the big books, and if it did it wasn't nearly as good. However given 20 years have passed and the way the current comic and movie markets are, it doesn't hold up as well. It's dated and the material won't transfer well to the big screen.

Yes, it is great for the fans because it looks like it is staying extremely true to the source material, but if the film stays in the 30s-80s time period, the general movie going audience is going to go "huh?" As well, it doesn't have the same name recognition as other "superhero" movies. I only use that term because that is what the general audience is going to think.

I hope it does well, but I don't think it has a "hook" like Sin City or 300, for a larger audience.

I didn't read Watchmen until earlier this year (after finding out about the movie and costumes, of course), and I have to say I really liked it. But then again, I'm a really big fan of Dune, and the two have a lot of similarities. The trailer looks very good - I saw it online Thursday night and again at TDK on Friday night - much better than i expected. The only character I think looks "weird" or "off" is Ozymandias. I don't think he looks bad, per se, but looking at him, Adrian Veidt does not immediately spring to mind. However, the assassination scene from the trailer looked sharp, so I'll hold out hope for him. I don't mind Owlman looking like a Batman knockoff, since he's just a more Batmanny version of the Blue Beetle (who's more of a Batman/Spiderman hybrid than a knockoff, to be honest). I thought Nolan's changes to the Batsuit were acceptable for a "real-world" style movie and I think the changes to the Owlsuit are very similar.

Osterman looked wonderful; I was surprised that little scenes (like him in Vietnam) were given such priority in this trailer. The comedian didn't seem to get nearly as much recognition, sadly.

Can't wait to see this. Too bad it doesn't come out till March - it seems like they have just about everything wrapped up.

new pics this movie is impressing me with how anal it is to recreate the book
"I am Andrew Ryan, and I'm here to ask you a question. Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? 'No!' says the man in Washington, 'It belongs to the poor.' 'No!' says the man in the Vatican, 'It belongs to God.' 'No!' says the man in Moscow, 'It belongs to everyone.' I rejected those answers; instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose...Rapture, a city where the artist would not fear the censor, where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality, where the great would not be constrained by the small! And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city, as well."

Yeah I really don't get all the hate for V, LXG was not so good but V was just grate. If you?re going to hate a movie hate it for being a bad film not for being a bad interpretation of a good comic or book.
