You don't even hear a hint of an accent, and she only very rarely chooses some odd wording where she probably wasn't familiar with the more appropriate alternative due to its relative obscurity.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:41 AM)

Just watched what's possibly the most relaxed interview ever of a German Youtuber interviewing Zazie while walking around Berlin. Turns out she was born in Berlin and spent quite some time in Germany.

@  Nevermore : (20 September 2019 - 03:39 AM)

Actors and actresses I had no idea speak fluent German, part 4.231: Zazie Beetz from Deadpool 2.

It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

I'm excited that this sounds to be a quality production. I don't think there will be any lasting longevity to it. And that may be the intention, as it seems to be intended as a limited series.

Hopefully this leads to a full relaunch after the film comes out.

being a long time transformers fan, I'm confident I'll be able to process 2 independent ongoing continuities. So I don't mind that this show will exist as something else for me to watch. So long as nothing stupid like the Bat embargo goes on here and the producers of the She-ra show can still use concepts from the overall canon of motu as they see fit. That being said, I'd also not care if this new show used She-ra continuity also ... it should all be free game to both shows.

 

and I want to be real with you all, these shows should be the last 2 places in entertainment where you should try and play out any 'genderagender' ... I'm just not here for that shit in 2019/2020 ... its almost disturbing that people are already suggesting this is a reaction by dudebros ...

 

its not, its a reaction by Netflix to seeing the popularity of a current product... that's it.

I think that's true, especially as all we have to go on now is apparently "something something Teela". Fingers crossed.

I just hope they don't pull a Regeneration One (etc), and ignore the G2 book the New Adventures show. That would show such disrespect for the canon!

I want them to do a holiday alternate universe crossover with Netflix She-Ra with the animation styles obviously clashing. Like TMNT Forever and those eps in Nick TMNT.

Then a crossover with New Adventures and 2002 versions, hehe

Exactly. What this needs to be is honest continuation of the story. No winking at the camera or 'this was so goofy' stuff. Comedy is great, but not when it undercuts things. Let the She Ra reboot be its own story, that can be independent from this.

I mean, how many successful reboots has TF had? And none of them need to crossover, except for Transtech.

Speaking of the New Adventures of He-Man. When those figures came out originally, they released a cassette with what was (at the time) a pretty cool prologue of sorts to how He-Man ends up in the future. It in no way tied into the cartoon, but i thought it was really good. Its an interesting, if incredibly cheesy, alternate beginning to the New Adventures.

Kinda somebody had been able to save a recording of it and upload it online. Ah well.

EDIT:

I stand corrected, somebody did. 1989? Wow, i feel old.

I was excited, until I learned it was tied to Filmation and Kevin Smith was showrunner. I'm not a huge fan of either and I don't have a huge amount of faith in this being the thing that helps drag MOTU off the nostalgia scrapheap.

No, this feels like they are doubling down on that. They see all these old properties revived on Netflix and being popular, and decide they need to do that; but becuase they think new doesn't sell and all people want are the original stuff, they're going as HARD as they can on the 80's nostalgia becuase its the only he-man stuff they can sell to a very small demographic.

I'm certainly curious to see how this goes.  The idea of somehow continuing from the original Filmation series is very odd.  I generally like Kevin Smith's, although I don't think he's ever been heavily involved in creating a TV series before.

 

I was really hoping that She-Ra would eventually introduce the major He-Man characters and possibly result in a full spin-off.  That seems less likely now.

I dunno what the tone of the new Motu would be but I'd love the crossover to be a special 'holiday' episode, like once a year.

They'd Spider-Verse it (though Turtles Forever did it first. Well, also the 90s Spider-Man show).

But I'd be fine if She-Ra's show does it instead. Let her see 80s, New Adv, 2002 and new Netflix Motu and have her breakdown as an 'It's a Wonderful Life' kind of story. Ties into Christmas too, hehe

Edit - oh, Transformers, yeah. I mean, when G1 was tied into Beast Wars in season 2, my jaw dropped.

When TFAnimated had their Blackarachnia end up in an animated Beast Wars world, I was miffed. Cuz we never got to see it go anywhere.

I'm not sure by what metric you'd consider TransTech "successful". I mean, you can't measure it by the usual standard since it didn't have a toyline.

Oh no, i wasn't trying to say Transtech was successful as such. Simply that its the only 'multiverse' crossover thing TF has ever had.

As for new MOTU, there is a 'picture' doing the rounds on the web. A skewed pic that allegedly gives a brief premise for MOTU Revelation. It implies that the start will be a massive battle that will 'fracture Eternia' and then follow Teela as she searches for the lost Sword of Grayskull and discover the secrets of Grayskulls past. Some seem to think this means that He-Man with have a big fight at the start of the series, but will then disappear while we follow Teela for the majority of the show.

Take all this with the requisite amount of salt. I mean, more Teela is no bad thing, but a MOTU sequel series with barely any He-Man seems an odd choice to make.
