Was that the one where he fights gamma mutant poodles?

@  unluckiness : (25 May 2019 - 03:14 AM)

The CG in that movie was fantastic. Shame Donkey and Fiona were written out of the movie though.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Don't worry, though. Ang Lee's Hulk has made it, so if physical media goes this year we can all die happy

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 May 2019 - 01:12 AM)

It's not on 4K yet. Sure would be nice, though

@  Pennpenn : (25 May 2019 - 12:56 AM)

Probably, when I remember to.

@  Telly : (24 May 2019 - 11:11 PM)

you should buy it on bluray or 4k

@  Pennpenn : (24 May 2019 - 09:56 PM)

It's still not up on netflix. Bah!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 May 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

God damn did LuPat's toy sales scare some executive.  I guess they fired the American guy who could've advised them to not get so worried about low toy sales.

I doubt that the show that just finished is the direct cause considering the time taken for the stages of toy development. All of which would need to be finalized before they shoot anything so that the props would match what's getting sold.

Even sales data from the middle of the year might be too recent to have an already apparent effect.

I'm guessing that there was an overall re-positioning of the brand based on sales not only from LuPat but from previous series. In terms of concept, Sentai has done;

 

Trains that change colours, Family of Ninjas (a more normal concept for the series), Animals from another world (ditto), Large team with an equal measure of non-human (most of the time) rangers IN SPACE, and the Team vs Team dynamic.

 

Overall, there's been a mix of overall normal Sentai concepts and less traditional bits, and whilst ratings for NinNinger were macabre, the rest of the series has experienced a more steady... decline (sadly).

 

With the toys we've had; Trains, A Random Mishmash of Objects somehow related to the transformation device, Cubes that are sort of Minecraft-ey, Orb star things? and the Interchangeable transformation device/vehicles. All five are so far apart that it felt like they were trying to catch lightning in a bottle from Ranger Keys or ZyuDenchi again without making something too similar and it didn't work out. Both Kamen Rider and PreCure have long settled on the "Main Toy+Sound Attachments" model, but Sentai seemingly wanted to step away from that.

 

In this case, they've probably relented and we'll see more of the same for quite a while.

 

The third series in TakaraTomy's X x Senshi series has been revealed as Himitsu x Senshi Phantom Mirage? They are basically the pre-teen girls of Lupinranger. Maybe Lupinranger's toys were successful, but Patrangers bombed. We won't know until Sentai maybe makes a new Phantom Thieves season.

Mandy from EXILE TRIBE will be in Phantom Mirage.

 

Why oh why does nobody sub these shows? There's nothing I need more in my life than a semi-serious J-pop star playing a prominent role in a children's tokusatsu series.

<fourteenwings> Naas: The main villain of Super Sentai Saikyou Battle!! is called Ultimate Dai Satan which I feel like was the name of another Sentai villain
<Naas> yeah
<Naas> Zyuranger

<fourteenwings> It's really weird because somehow there are five heroes on the main team and none are from dinosaur themed seasons

<Naas> according to Power Rangers Wikia, it /is/ the Zyuranger one
<fourteenwings> That is even weirder since not even one Zyuranger has shown up out of Sentai form
<fourteenwings> Naas: wait so
<fourteenwings> The villain girl being named Rita
<fourteenwings> is really a Power Rangers joke?

<Naas> that makes sense on some level

 

<fourteenwings> Also ToQ 5 beat DekaMaster which feels like something people will be mad about forever and ever
<fourteenwings> So I'm glad

So I'm watching Kakuranger, fun series for the most part.. but two things...

 

Did the show get extended beyond what they originally planned? It almost seemed as if they had the finale planned, then said "Oh! We got more episodes left!"

 

and is "Novice" some kind of common insult or something? o.O
