I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

After getting excited about each of the new films and being subsequently burned by the general awful writing and acting in all them, I don't plan on seeing Clone Wars, despite being a big Star Wars fan. I'll probably see it on DVD eventually, but I'm not in a hurry this time. I'm tired of Lucas' crap.
It's time to bring the crunch!

I'd consider myself a Star Wars fan, but the footage and panel at SDCC made the movie/series look unbearably awful. I plan to avoid both.

I've enjoyed the last three movies, and have been looking forward to this. Having Christopher Lee back pretty much guaranteed that I'll be seeing it ASAP.

I OTOH am excited about the Clone Wars in a way I haven't been about a Star Wars movie since TPM.

Tartakovsky's series and the Republic Commando novels were the best things to come out of the Prequel era, and this looks to combine elements of both. Knowing that this is basically a series pilot (and that Lord Lucas would never sully his hands to screenwrite a full series), I'm hoping series writers George Krstic (co-creator of Megas XLR), Henry Gilroy (TF Animated: "Sound and Fury"), Paul Dini (Justice League Unlimited), and Scott Murphy (Angel) at least got to offer ideas.

Warner Bros. is not allowing any reviews to be released until after the film's release. The buzz is that this "film" is trash, fit for 5-years-olds. I'll see it eventually, but I will not be paying any money to see it - definitely NOT in theaters.

AICN had a second review up as well, also firmly negative.

Jive-talkin' Hutts, forgettable plots, poorly staged battles, kid sidekicks who "could only be worse if she said 'Meesa' every five seconds," an overall lack of any dramatic tension, plus bad directing and writing in general, were the main impressions I got from the reviews before they were pulled.

lol, it's a sad day when that happens. Fortunately, I still really enjoy the scores; and the original, unedited versions as well. You can't go wrong with a John Williams score... he even almost managed to make the portion of Superman following the credits, Krypton and Smallvillle watchable.
