If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

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.

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.

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.

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.

@  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)

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.

All 3 Transformers movies. They're very fun to watch. What did he get right?

Robots turn into things. The good ones fight the bad ones with violence. Optimus and Megatron are somehow involved. Ya know, the basics of the entire franchise that basically anyone can get right knowing nothing other than the title of the show.

Pop quiz!

What is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles about?


He may not be everyone's (or anyone's) favorite director, but he knows how to make a movie that people will see...and I'm pretty sure that whoever owns the rights to the turtles will not allow them to actually be aliens....just alien from human...ie: Mutant Turtles who are Teenage Ninjas.

Actually, I've been all about doom and gloom before the quote...since I even heard Bay was attached to this I've had bad feelings. It's just that the quote does little to change my mind and, in fact, made things worse. If he meant "Alien" as in "not human," he chose his words extremely poorly. The way he makes it sound, they weren't just normal turtles who got turned into mutants. They were from an alien RACE. He specifically said "race." So there's not just the four of them, there's a whole civilization of them out there. That's very far from what the turtles are supposed to be, even further than the current IDW comics.?

I can except some changes to the back story. But to make them a whole race? And I'm not buying the whole "alien doesn't necessarilly mean from outerspace" argument. He knew exactly what he was implying.

All 3 Transformers movies. They're very fun to watch. What did he get right?
You can stop right there. Because honestly, I don't give a crap what he got right. And I'll admit, he did get some stuff very much right. I enjoyed the action scenes. It was great hearing Peter Cullen at the helm as Optimus again. He may have gotten quite a few things right.?

But the things he got wrong made it so unbearable, I haven't watched the first movie in forever because of it. The scenes with Sam's mother: Were you masturbating, I had no idea college students put pot in brownies so now I'm gonna act drunk off my ass (and yes, I typed what I meant. She doesn't act high, she acts drunk), Bumblebee peeing on a human, John Turturro's thonged ass right in my face...do I really need to go on? All this toilet humor made it impossible to watch. I would be embarressed to watch this around anyone I know because of this. The third movie thankfully kept this humor to a minimum, though the less said about "Deep Wang" the better. Maybe it's just me, but this completely juvenile toilet humor totally overshadowed what he got right. It's been a good long time since I've watched the first couple movies because of this and it'll probably be a good long time still, if ever, before I ever watch them again.

And then there's the toys. Dear heaven the toys! I'm fine with there being toys of the movie figures. But for the longest time, that's all...there...was. It doesn't help much that finally there's some Transformer Prime toys out, because even those design aesthetics seem closely linked to the movie designs. The generations line is okay, but both these lines are still overshadowed by the "Dark of the Moon" line that, honestly, I've stopped collecting Transformer toys. The designs were all well and good when the movies first came out. But I am so freaking sick of it now that I hardly even look at Transformers whenever I go to the toy section any more.

And don't even get me started on the whole "did not do the research" when it comes to the Rock or the "are you freaking kidding me" when it comes to Armageddon.

I'll give you that one, seeing as how, heaven help me, I actually did watch Transformers 2 and 3 even after the embarrassment of the first one. And as much as I cringe at some of the stupid "didn't do the research" from the Rock, I still actually enjoy that some.?

It's just, in my opinion, he's screwed up the Transformers so much that the last thing I want to see is what he makes of the Turtles.

One man's "unbearable" is another man's "funny." I mean, Dane Cook somehow got a career!


I find the humor in the movies (except for the various leg humpings) to be quite funny, yet am also able to enjoy things such as Fry and Laurie. Such is the nature of such subjective things.


Then again, I'm not even sure why I came in here, never been a huge Turtles fan...carry on chaps!

You seem unable to distinguish between "writer" and "director". A writer writes the stuff that happens in the movie. A director shoots scenes based on this writing.

Got a point there. With most of the movies I watch being James Cameron, Peter Jackson and Tarintino, I've grown used to the director and writer being the same person, it got easy to assume. However, like the quarterback in a football team, no matter what, it's the director that gets the some of the glory and all the blame. These films are still "Bay's films," so anything that happens in them is still either partly to his credit or all his fault.

Well, I think the saving grace here may be that it's "Michael Bay's production company" and not "directed by Michael Bay".

Bay co-produced all the Platinum Dunes/New Line horror films and they didn't reek of any of the Bay-isms some are dreading. ?Granted, some of them were lousy due to the directors working on them, but not directly because of anything Bay-himself did.

So just because it's being produced by one of Bay's companies, so long as Bay-himself isn't directing, I'm not too worried yet.

When I saw Platinum Dune's remake of Nightmare on Elm Street, and saw that Freddy didn't just burn to death- he got caught in a giant explosion, I said to myself, this has Bay's fingerprints all over it. icon-waspy.gif
