It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

@  Benbot : (02 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

have you tried Soylent? It's pretty good! https://soylent.com/

@  Paladin : (02 December 2019 - 10:01 AM)

i prefer free-range human usually. pain in the ass to hunt though...

@  TheMightyMol... : (02 December 2019 - 09:42 AM)

If your human is all bones, you may have purchased a skeleton by accident. Contact your grocer to inquire about exhange policies.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 09:31 AM)

Vegans are categorised as human therefore just fall under Soylant, they are usually all bones.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:47 PM)

Cause... that latter one is technically all burgers anyway.

@  wonko the sane? : (01 December 2019 - 04:46 PM)

So... a burger made without meat, or a burger made with the meat taken from a vegan?

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 December 2019 - 04:22 PM)

I had a vegan burger last week, this week I'll give a vegan steak a shot.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

a proper paradox would have broken the board. Nice try though.

I've got the admit. tubi tv is great. It's got a lot of stuff.. Including Super Sentai.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There is frankly no better place to (legally) find schlock on the internet for free than Tubi TV

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:33 PM)

It's got all the graphic violence and gratuitous nudity a late 80s OVA should have.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

Available for free with ads on Tubi TV.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 November 2019 - 10:32 PM)

It's "Goku: Midnight Eye". Originally produced in the late 80s, it apparently wasn't dubbed until the late 90s given Steve Blum was the lead.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 06:38 PM)

The description makes it sound like some high grade, mid 80's shlock. Which, frankly, is my groove.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 November 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Was wondering how long it would take someone to ask.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 November 2019 - 09:58 AM)

okay, it's been like two days so far: what anime is this, cause I'm dying to know.

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 November 2019 - 09:23 PM)

You know you're in for a good time when an old anime starts with a crime lord uses roller skates in his cybernetic legs to skate down the side of the building, launches to a dock and into a getaway boat.

@  Pinkcolliebot : (26 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Hey Everyone I'm Making The TF Roll Out Short "Gotta Go Fast!"

@  Benbot : (26 November 2019 - 12:52 PM)

That's what I was hoping for. But here I am, at work the following day.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 November 2019 - 12:29 PM)

You say "die in bed" and I'm thinking "why is that a problem?".

@  fourteenwings : (26 November 2019 - 07:06 AM)

If you don't get out of bed ever your muscles will lock in super-uncomfortable ways and you may get blood clots

You did nothing, and so rocks fall down and you die.

The new Batman cartoon, Batman: The Brave and the Bold, debuts tonight on Cartoon Network at 8 Eastern Time. I think it looks to be an incredibly fun show, and as it features the animation debut of Jaime Reyes aka Blue Beetle (the third and current one), it is a must watch for me. He just had his relentlessly-awesome comic canceled, so perhaps this show can help soothe my RAGE/SADNESS over that news.

Here's the series trailer:

I just finished watching this on Teletoon, and while I think Jaime was a little out of character at points, overall I was pretty damn pleased. This series looks like it's going to be some serious cheesy, awesome fun!

I'll leave comprehensive reviews to people that aren't as easily pleased as myself.

Please, please inspire series-saving sales boost...

I like this Batman. They're trying a little too hard to capture the "giant typewriter"-era Batman in places (i.e. the big vat labeled ACID), but I definitely like the new tech gimmick for Batman and his wry personality.

Yeah, Cartoon!Jaime obviously isn't exactly the same as Comics!Jaime, which was to be expected. But I was happy with this version.

I totally wanted to shout "YAY PACO!" when I saw he was there, too. I had wondered if any of Jaime's supporting cast would make it into the show.

Yep, a campy, fun Batman cartoon, with storytelling aimed at a younger audience, but still willing to use words like "killed" and "dead." I think its off to a pretty strong start.

Is it going to surpass TAS as the definitive Batman? No, but it was still fun to watch.

Lordy, that was great. The humor was spot-on, the action sequences were orgasmic to the eyes, and the retro style works perfectly.

Here's an upload, for those who missed it.

Blue Beetle kinda throws me off, though. Compared to everyone else, he looks totally modern, and after getting so used to his portrayal in his excellent comic, I was not expecting Blue Beetle to basically be DC's answer to Ron Stoppable. Not that I mind that too much, as I liked Kim Possible and thought that show was funny and well done as well; just threw me off a little in the beginning.

Also, after watching this, I am again reminded of how much the animation in Transformers: Animated tends to dissapoint me compared to just about every other Cartoon Network action show made in the last five or six years. You don't get episodes with animation like 'Total Meltdown' in Teen Titans, Ben 10 (and Alien Force), Secret Saturdays, the Batman, and now this. Just kind of leaves me with 'animation envy', I suppose.
Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

This was pretty much awesome. Lots of clever humor, something to keep the adults happy as well as the kids, and Jaime's totally a Batman fanboy! It was really well done.

When Jamie's flipping through channels, one of them has a standup comedian saying "...it's called 'The Aristocrats.'"


I loved it. The humour was spot on, the opening was very delightfully Sprang-y, and it was just in general very fun.

It is definitly not TAS. It is more....well the Adam West Batman but with some TAS feel to it. I'm not too sure about Batman's voice but it definitly works for this style of cartoon. The fact that they seem to be using some charactyers that haven't been seen in the DCAU actually makes me somewhat happy.

Ironbite-can't wait to see more.

Huh. I'm guessing only you Canadians got to hear that, because I just checked to be sure and in the version that aired on CN in the US, the comedian says "..to get to the other side."

Okay, from the before-episode bit on BM:TB&TB, this show looks like exactly the kind of show that Venture Bros is a parody of. It's ludicrous and absurd but thanks to taking no stops for explanations, it moves forward fast enough that show pulls it off. Kooky.

Beetle is very good. But I wish Ron Stoppable wasn't being typecast. Friendly Batman is.... disorienting. I hope all episodes are this adorable and there's none of the common "Let's make it more serious in season 3" - I have to wonder what percent of production crew this show shares with Legion.

Not bad, I sorta feel the silly nature of this show could work with ten minute segments. I'll watch it when it's on and I happen to be in the room, and nothing else is on, but I don't think I can see myself making time for this. Still, I might change my mind when Sinestro passes rings around.

This show takes place in the DCU and everybody who disagrees is basically Satan.
Woooo!
